Additional Location Information
Hyde Park is a quiet and relaxing neighborhood. You will be within walking distance to some of the best local restaurants and bakeries that Austin has to offer, yet you wouldn't know it because of the quiet atmosphere. It's common to see people running or walking their dogs at all times of the day. There's very little traffic on the streets, which makes it a great place to walk around and look at all of the historic Victorian homes built in the late 1800's to early 1900's. Go visit the free local museum in the neighborhood or enjoy a coffee at the local coffee shop within walking distance.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Great stay in Hyde Park
I stayed here for 6 nights during Sxsw and it turned out to be a great way to avoid the madness of downtown austin during a big event (while only being a 10 minute car ride / $12 cab ride away).
Although the photos were accurate the rental was much more spacious than I'd expected! It would be more than enough room for up to 4 people. All the appliances were in working order, the decor was simple and tasteful and the bed was comfortable. Plenty of closet and dresser space, as well. I used the glasses, plates, silverware and a few pans - I made one grocery run at the beginning of my stay which saved me $$ in food costs.
The rental was clean and well-maintained. I'm a stickler for clean bathrooms and this one was immaculate. The heat and a/c both worked very well and I was comfortable during my entire stay.
The location is great! The rental is within a short walk of some great Hyde Park businesses (Quack's Bakery, a grocery store, a gelato place, Mother's Cafe, a spa where I got the best massage I've had in months) and I also went walking and running around the Hancock Golf Course located a few blocks away. All neighbors I encountered were friendly.
I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a "local" Austin experience or as an alternative to staying in a hotel.
Great Place to Stay!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the use of this lovely historic home. The bed is really comfortable, the air conditioning works great (important in austin!) and the wood floors, high ceilings and tall windows add to the charm of the place. The house is set in a wonderful neighborhood full of tall shade trees and historic homes. We could walk to numerous restaurants, grocery stores and other shopping options. We would definitely stay here again.
We loved the location of this property. Hyde Park has tree lined street and interested homes, and it would have been the perpect walking neighborhood if not for the triple digit heat that hit us for the almost 2 weeks we were there. There is a free city swimming pool about 4 blocks away, which provided a needed respite during a couple of especially hot afternoons. The property is within walking distance to UT austin and a few interesting eating places. There are also quite a few Zip Cars parked around the campus, so if you don't want to rent a car for the duration of your stay, public transportation or even Cars2Go might offer good alternatives. Just be aware that the bathtub might be a challenge for some people, and those with balancing issues might need special care when stepping in and out.
Charming place right where you want to be.
My friends and I stayed in this charming rental on a girls weekend trip to austin and we were all very impressed. Pete, the owner, was very accomodating and very prompt with communications and made renting a vacation rental for the first time a very plesant experience.
The location of this rental is excellent. We were close to downtown and all the attractions we planned on seeing while we were there, so we got to spend more time doing the fun things we wanted to do instead of driving around trying to get to them. The house is very comfortable, it really feels more like you are staying with a local friend instead of a rental. The place has been very nicely updated while keeping up the charm with hardwood floors, huge windows that let in lots of natural light and a clawfoot tub in the bathroom.
Everyone was very pleased with our stay in this adorable vacation rental and all agree that it would be the first place we pick for our next trip to austin.
Home away from home
This place was perfect for our mini-vacation in austin! It was cute, cozy and had everything that we needed. It was close to everywhere we went - maximum of 10 minutes away from downtown without traffic. Plus it was in an interesting neighborhood where there are a lot of local restaurants and shops if you didn't feel like driving.
Chapel Hill, NC
My husband and two kids stayed here and it was fantastic. The place was extremely clean, uncluttered and very comfortable. Bed and linens were awesome. High ceilings and wonderful natural lighting. It was quiet and relaxing and it's in a fantastic location near park and local restaurants. Speaking as a former austinite, it's a wonderful taste of living in one of the city's oldest and most loved neighborhoods.
