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
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.
We stayed at the La Casa property for the third 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 restaurants 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.
I can't say enough great things about this house and Carole and Kerry. We spent three and a half months at La Casa before and after our first baby was born. We live overseas and needed to find somewhere we could stay while in the US to give birth. From the moment we contacted Carole she was so warm and welcoming, giving us tips about our stay and giving birth in Austin. She was so excited we would be having our first child while living at their home and bent over backwards to prepare for us. It made us feel so welcome and her communications were so personalized and kind by the time we got to Austin we felt like family.
When we arrived we inmediately felt like we were home. The property is gorgeous, perfect for family get togethers and relaxing days and it's in a perfect location. Both nine months pregnant and with a newborn I loved taking long walks in the neighborhood (and stopping by Moonlight bakery for cinnamon rolls!). My husband would run to Barton Springs every other day and the greenbelt was great for short little hikes. The restaurants within walking distance are delicious and there's a Sprouts grocery store just up the street.
Our whole family was in and out of the house over the weeks after our daughter was born but the house never felt crowded. The bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen gear and linens are all great. The cleaning service was also nice with a newborn. We also did a Lot of laundry so the giant washer and dryer were very helpful. We cooked out on the grill and played with our baby on the grass in the backyard. It is just a lovely home.
We brought in a real Christmas tree and just made La Casa our home away from home. Any time anything came up, Carole or Kerry helped us out right away and they were perfectly responsive to all our inquiries. Carole even made us delicious chicken soup right after our daughter was born! We loved staying with them so much we have booked another of their properties for this summer when we're back in Austin.
I just can't recommend this property or any other property of Carole and Kerry's enough- they are wonderful and having lived in La Casa and seen the Bouldin house I can say they are all wonderful.
If you are looking for a home away from home, La Casa is it. We couldn't have been happier. We truly treasure our memories from our time there and I teared up as we left. I am so grateful for Carole and Kerry letting us stay at La Casa.
What a fantastic rental. The house has everything you need to enjoy a worry free stay in Austin.
The kitchen is wel stocked with supplies, dishes, spices and cooking equipment.
Excellent outdoor space with a great covered deck and a backyard horshoe pit that we used regularly during our stay.
The owners were highly communicative right from booking all the way through our departure.
All in all an amazing time was had by our entire group, if we're ever back in Austin I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again
Amazing home. We had a group from Canada and were amazed at the hospitality of both our hosts and the city of Austin. Would recommend renting this home to anyone. Spacious, clean with all amenities we could have required for our vacation.
We throughly enjoyed our stay here. we loved the ability to walk to dinner and the closeness the home was for our wedding festivities. The inside of the home was up to date and perfect for our group of 5. The fun patio table made for great conversation and coffee in the morning. Carole went over and above to accomodate our baby girl by setting up a pack n play and high chair. Thanks for everything Carole!
This house is located within walking distance or just a short drive to many major attractions in Austin. several resturaunts, coffee shops, live music venues and interesting shops await you all within a few blocks of this quiet, safe and sought after neighborhood. Just minutes from Barton Springs Pool and Zilker Park.
