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.”

Great location and price!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and everything you need, we really enjoyed our stay. Carole checked in on us to make sure we did not need anything, and was very quick to respond to initial questions about the property.

3rd Stay at La Casa-Great as Always

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect home for our new baby

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great time in Austin

  • 5 of 5

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

La Casa

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cute city bungalow

  • 5 of 5

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!
