“Wonderful spot in Austin!”
I stayed at this rental in Hyde Park for two weeks in September. It met my expectations and more. The rental was quiet, and well kept. In fact it was spotless inside! The kitchen was basically equipped but I had the essentials for making my own meals. The neighborhood is great and I would go for walks each day in the neighborhood meeting lots of friendly Austinites! Pete is a fantastic property manager and replied very quickly to any concerns I had. This is a great place to stay that is just out of downtown yet close to several restaurants and grocery stores. Also near bus routes if you don't have a car. Loved it. I will be back!
“Clean and Lovely and Open space”
Pete is a good host and responsive via email and texts. This rental is very clean and very organized and spacious for two people. But, there is room for three with the back office and the day bed. Kitchen has almost everything you could want to cook instead of eating out. But, the neighborhood has some cafes and restaurants about a 3 block walk away around Duval and 43rd. Neighborhood is quiet and friendly and very walkable. The only unique item for us was the bedroom being between the living room and the kitchen but, it made it unique and not a problem. Also like the keyless entry to the unit which is one of three in the house. We didn't have to worry about losing the key.
“Hyde Park, a wonderful place to park”
We enjoyed our stay for five weeks in February. Would that the weather had been better to allow us more time to investigate the neighborhood and city. It is a lovely quiet neighborhood, lots of quiet streets to walk, stores nearby. Pete was the consummate host - responding to our every email, taking care of small items that we addressed. The reservation process was fast and very efficient, with no problems. The security deposit was refunded the same day we left. The unit is sparkingly clean, a big kitchen and small office with a back yard to enjoy in better weather. It is a 1915 or so house so don't expect triple track windows and ultra modern conveniences. Plenty of closet space and attractively decorated. The front door has no key but a pass code - less keys to keep track of. Laundry is on the premises. The only disadvantage for senior citizens is a claw footed bathtub that might be difficult to get in and out of. Otherwise, we have nothing but kudos for Pete and his rental. We hope to return there next year.
“Great Property, Great Service”
I was in austin while a family member was hospitalized at Seton. Pete returned my calls and emails promptly and was so helpful on short notice. The property was beautifully renovated, well furnished, clean, and offered a peaceful respite after staying up odd hours at the hospital. So conveniently located close to the hospital, UT, Central Market and restaurants. I hope I can stay here again under happier circumstances when I can enjoy the full kitchen and nice living space. Thanks so much!
“Perfect location -- home away from home”
Hyde Park is a perfect neighborhood from which to experience austin! This home was very comfortable & spotlessly clean. Really appreciated the extra touches of extras such as TP, trash bags, and plenty of clean towels. Wiould like to use again when I return to austin.
My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and we couldn't have asked for a cleaner, well-maintained home. It's located in a gorgeous neighborhood and you can get to all the downtown hotspots in 10 mins or so. The Hyde Park area is pretty hip-and-happening anyway. You can walk a few blocks and hit up a fabulous bakery, Quack (the carrot cake- OMG), or grap a margarita or a huge plate of breakfast at Julio's for cheap (cash only)! Also, heard the italian restuarant by the grocery store is really good but didn't have the opportunity to try it out. However, if you're there on a Monday or Tuesday, you must try the fried chicken at the Hyde Park Grill (right next door to Julio's)! It's a wonderful area so rather live like an austinite, stay here and do not waste your money on a hotel by Town Lake. Austin is a really fun town and there's so much to do, whether you have kids or not. It's a very kid-friendly town. Loved the claw-foot tub and also having the option of the pull-out sofa. Pete is a gracious and helpful host! Cheers, The Senderlings
“Great Getaway in a Historic Neighborhood”
My wife and I really enjoyed the house. It was immaculately clean, has a nice comfortable bed, the ac works and has ceiling fans in every room. The neighborhood is shady and picturesque and great for walking. Nice restaurants to visit nearby all within walking distance. Its location is very convenient for getting to many austin attractions without having to fight notorious austin traffic. We intend to stay there again sometime soon.
“Perfect downtown location”
My family of three loved staying here. The home was cute, clean and cozy without being small. The location was ideal and central to almost anything you could want to do in austin. The neighborhood was safe and friendly. There is a Fiesta right down the road if you feel like saving money and cooking in the well equipped kitchen. If not, SoCo is only a 15 minute drive. I really suggest trying HopDoddy's fantastic burgers (you will stand in a line forever but it's worth the wait). I will be coming back to austin in the fall and I look forward to staying here again.
I had a delightful 2 ½ week stay in this unit in June. As other reviewers have said, the property is in a nice well-established neighborhood of lovely homes. Although I felt completely safe in the neighborhood, it was nice to know that there were also others in the two additional units in the building, and the keypad entry provided extra security. The property was immaculately clean and very well maintained! Everything looked freshly painted. One thing that I have not seen mentioned was that the bed was most comfortable. I was a little concerned about that, as I had not seen it mentioned in any of the reviews, but as soon as I arrived in town, I laid down for just a moment to rest, and quickly sunk into a deep sleep., thanks to the comfy bed. The owner Pete was absolutely wonderful, as others have mentioned. He was immediately responsive to any concern, and I know it sounds like a cliché, but he really did everything possible to make my stay go smoothly. My only concern is that it might become so popular that I won't be able to rent it the next time I come to town! Thanks Pete!
“Charming and Spacious in Hyde Park”
This was our fourth stay in one of Pete's rental units - he has become our go-to guy when we are traveling back to austin for work. Clean, updated rentals with great internet, access to laundry and all in one of our favorite neighborhoods. Pete's professionalism has been great and he's been available whenever we've had questions or booked on short notice. The location is great. Restaurants, coffee shops/bakeries and a grocery all within walking distance. Bus and bike routes run through Hyde Park so access to UT and downtown are easy. Depending on time of day, it's 10-20 minutes drive time into downtown via city streets. If you are a Car2Go member, lots of neighbors use the service so cars are usually close by. This bungalow apartment retains it's historic charm while having been updated. The layout is dog run style as mentioned in one of the other reviews with the main bedroom between the living room and the kitchen. The bathroom is accessed just off the kitchen in the sun room area. (Wouldn't be a problem other than slight privacy issues if you had the max number of guests in the house.) The spacious, eat-in kitchen has all the tools needed to do the basic cooking we need. I would definitely (and probably will) stay here again.
