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

“This was such an amazing home for our family reunion/vacation! Our daughter and her boyfriend flew in from Portland, Oregon and my husband and I flew in from Hartford, Connecticut. Our son lives in Austin. This was a first visit for all of us to see where he lives and a great vacation for all. The house was perfect for the five of us! The covered deck with ceiling fan was a favorite spot. Many meals, books & board games were enjoyed there! The kitchen was fully stocked with any pots, pans, dishes, spices & utensils we needed or could even think of for cooking or grilling. The fenced in back yard was very peaceful and naps were enjoyed under the big beautiful tree. We also enjoyed playing horseshoes. The house was clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable and enjoyable. We definitely felt like we were home. Our hosts were so nice and super accommodating! We were greeted with yummy cookies on arrival & They supplied a wonderfully detailed binder with any and all information for everything from public transportation to favorite restaurants. The house is in a great location. Very nice quiet neighborhood that's easy access to the park, swimming, botanical gardens, music, bars, restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy, used book store, etc! We so enjoyed our time there. I miss it already and hope to stay again.”

This house is truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay in this beautiful home and I'm planning to return next year as well. It is comfortable, spacious, clean, and simply lovely overall! If you are someone who cooks, you'll appreciate the well stocked kitchen - any utensils, pans, etc that you can imagine needing are available. We've cooked some delicious meals in this kitchen. It's such a perk to enjoy a home cooked meal when traveling for business. The back yard and deck are perfect to relax and unwind. Excellent access to wonderful restaurants & a short drive to Barton Springs or downtown Austin. I give it my highest recommendation! Thank you Carole & Kerry!

Fabulous house and location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to be close to Zilker park for ACL. We loved it. We could bike to the park and the neighborhood was great. The house is exceedingly easy to stay in as Carole made sure we had just about everything we could need including providing drinks as it was such a hot weekend. Really, really recommend it - although we would like to book again for next year first !!!!!

La Casa is PERFECTO!

  • 5 of 5

This property was awesome. It's very comfortable & located in a good area. Carole & Kerry are so accommodating. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't provided. The backyard & deck are enjoyable. We would love to stay here again.
