Private Guest House, 2 Bedrooms, Office Area, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Charming 1930's home with original hardwood floors, original knobs and other fixtures, large backyard, and plenty of parking. We completely remodeled the home in 2011, but maintained its original character and charm. There's a full 2 bedrooms with queen size beds and a foldout sofa couch to sleep a total of 4 people (total of 4 people includes any children). Complimentary laundry facility is included. The guest home has everything that you would need from dishes, pots and pans, a toaster, stove, refrigerator, table and chairs, towels, and fresh sheets.

It's located in the heart of Hyde Park in central Austin within walking distance to restaurants, a bakery, and other local businesses. ASTI, Quack's Mother's Cafe, Julio's, and several other restaurants are within walking distance. There is a public bus stop one block away that will take you anywhere in the city including downtown.

Why Pete Gilcrease chose Austin

Hyde Park is a quiet neighborhood near downtown Austin. It's great having access to everything downtown and central Austin has to offer and then come home to a quiet neighborhood.

Great Stay in austin

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, uncle and I stayed at this vacation rental in Hyde Park. We loved it! The place was immaculate and the owner is very accommodating. We felt right at home. My daughter was checking out UT austin, and she fell in love with the school and the neighborhood. The home is located within walking distance of several restaurants, a coffee shop and a neighborhood grocery store. We were in the heart of austin, yet it was so quiet that we could hear the birds chirping in the morning! The neighbors are very friendly and Pete lives right down the street so he is always available if needed. We didn't have any problems, though! Everything was perfect.

cozy, workable spot in great nabe, congenial owner

  • 5 of 5

This proved to be the perfect spot for a couple who were going to be biking all over town and wanted to be near their UT-student son in an easy-going nabe with decent amenities. The space was compact and well-maintained with comfortable Ikea-style furniture and the laundry room downstairs accommodated our bikes so we didn't need to leave them on the streets. Right near the great coffee shop Quack's Bakery, a good respite when the wifi in the apartment wasn't working well. Owner Pete accessible and accommodating. We'll be back!

Clean, comfortable apartment

Pristine clean, well appointed freestanding 2 bdr apt atop garage, a common setup in Austin. Light from all 4 sides, fine kitchen. Lovely neighborhood, nicely furnished without excess, Host was very responsive. Could not hope for a better spot.
