About Carole and Kerry Price

We are Kerry and Carole Price and have been hosting out of town guests in Austin for over three years.

We have been married for over 28 years and have raised both of our children within a mile of this home and still live in the neighborhood. Kerry still has a day job in the packaging business and loves wooden boats. Carole manages the vacation rental properties and is a community volunteer with Hospice Austin.

We both found our way to Austin: Kerry from Minnesota and Carole from Glasgow Scotland. We met in South Austin in the mid 80's and have never left.

Carole and Kerry Price purchased this house in 1999

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time! Your home was perfect! We rented bikes, hiked, went to 6th street, danced at the Broken Spoke, went to the Alamo drafthouse for dinner and a movie, and even had our early thanksgiving dinner!!

Thank for your great info notebook. It was very helpful.

If we are ever all back to Austin, we will definitely check for your home's availability.

Thank you!

Everything you want!

Our weekend rental was incredible. The house is impeccably clean, stocked with everything you need, close to everything, and the owner's provide detailed recommendations for activities of any kind. The backyard area is perfect for socializing. The rooms are all large with huge storage spaces. The owners think of everything including extra pillows, blankets, towels, umbrellas, you name it. We had no issues during so did not need to contact them. However- when needed prior for questions the response was prompt and helpful. I cannoy speak highly enough of the accommodating owners, pristine house and great Austin location.

Another Trip to Ausitn

  • 5 of 5

I have rented Plum Cottage a number of times now from Carole and Kerry. The place is perfect little cottage (bedroom, bathroom , kitchen, and living room) that is well appointed and close to downtown and Zilker Park. Carole and Kerry have a wonderful decorating eye, and have thought of everything you might need for your stay (dishes, kitchen towels, glasses, even shopping bags).

The house is wonderful, and Carole is very attentive; she always wants to be sure things are going well for you and that all's well with the house. It's why I've come back to this place so many times. Highly recommend.

Everything described and more!

Truly a great house! That backyard and deck was beautiful!! Went for a weekend getaway with my wife and friends. After the first walk through of the house upon arrival, we were high-fiving each other. On top of that, the property owner was phenomenal; excellent communication and doing whatever possible to make sure our trip was a success! Highly recommend and will definitely stay again!

Excellent location. Great house.

  • 5 of 5

Weekend trip to Austin with 4 coworkers. Space was perfect. Everyone had their own bed. The house was extremely organized and had great amenities. The house was located on a side street of one of the most used streets in Austin, which made it a very convenient location. The trip itself was ok, it rained and we didn't feel like there was too much to see in Austin, but the house was excellent.

What a wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for our son's wedding. It was a wonderful place to stay. Great location, very nice and well decorated. Everything you needed was included. Carole found out we were bringing our 10 month old grandson and she provided a high chair, stroller, playpen and bed. I have never stayed anywhere that provided such detail to make the experience positive. Now that I have family in Austin, I now have a wonderful place to stay. I highly recommend!!

Great Vacation House (Again)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the La Casa property for the second time and it was as great as the first time. We were in Austin for a race at the Circuit of the Americas. The Zilker neighborhood is a great location. Please see my review from April 2014 below.

The house and property are exactly as described in the listing. The house was clean, neat, well-maintained and well-supplied with furnishings, supplies and kitchenware for an extended stay. Every ceiling fan, lightswitch, kitchen appliance, hot and cold water faucet, showerhead and the air conditioner worked perfectly. The owners are helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The neighborhood was quiet while still be close to interesting restauants and bars, several of which are within walking distance. Downtown is close and there is easy access to the airport and expressways. This was our first rental thru VRBO and we could not have been more pleased with our choice and service provided by the owners. Highly Recommended.
