This home is a full time vacation rental so you can feel comfortable knowing that your reservation is being handled professionally.
Upon check-in you'll receive your own keyless security code to let you into your new home away from home. The main bedroom is furnished with a queen bed. The second bedroom has a daybed that folds out comfortably into a king size bed or can just be used as a twin bed. There's also an additional twin bed in the second bedroom. There's a full size kitchen, a large living room, and laundry. The 10 foot ceilings and large windows make the home feel even larger than it is. This historic home was completely remodeled in 2010 and includes different residences, but it still has its old character and charm from 1915. There's a large fully fenced back yard with a patio set perfect for a relaxing afternoon.
Location is everything! Stay in one of the most trendy and historic neighborhoods in Austin. The location is ideal for families or anyone that would like to be close to all of the attractions that Austin has to offer, but also a quiet, relaxing, and safe neighborhood and home to come back to after exploring.
Walk a few blocks and you can have breakfast or coffee at one of the best bakeries in Austin, shop at a local grocery store, have lunch at several restaurants, view the many early 1900 Victorian homes, or an afternoon snack at a local sandwich shop that's been open since 1909. If you want to travel somewhere farther away in Austin, the bus route is on the next street. Hop right onto the bus and go anywhere for $1. If you need any recommendations on places to eat or see in Austin, we are more than happy to help any time.

Great experience. First unit was taken, so host recommended another. Very helpful! Nice place, lots of space, great furnishing. Hyde Park is a great neighborhood – easy walk to Juiceland and Mother's Cafe.
Just what we needed during our trip to sxsw. This house had plenty of space and slept 3 males easily. Much better than paying crazy prices for hotel rooms downtown and is close to the express bus that takes you to the festival.
We had a wonderful stay in this Hyde Park home. We were in a pinch and booked the room on the same day we arrived, and Pete was very timely, efficient, and helpful at getting us settled. Would definitely stay there again!
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cet appartement. Il est situé dans un magnifique quartier, très vert, très calme, et néanmoins proche du centre d'Austin. Il est bien équipé, les lits sont confortables.
Pete est très réactif en cas de questions ou de petit soucis.
J'ai retiré une étoile car il faut absolument que tous les occupants aient le même rythme de vie. La chambre du haut n'a pas de porte et les autres lits sont installés dans la pièce qui sert de salle à manger (à coté de la cuisine). Donc il faut se coucher et se lever ensemble.
Enfin il est entièrement meublé Ikea, on aime ou on n'aime pas.
Pete is an excellent host. He provided our passcode & access to the apartment early so we could have immediate access after our arrival. The apartment is modern, sweetly clean, private and quiet. The bathroom and kitchen are well stocked . All the things we needed to make our trip complete. In addition, the locale is in the Historic Hyde Park District and I recommend walking around the blocks enjoying the sights. The nearby restaurants and coffee shops are absolutely deeelicious!! Pete kept in touch with us via email if we needed anything and also emailed us a thank you. A great host and a neat modern apartment.
The place looked spotless and the accommodations were exactly as described. The check in and check out was super seamless and Pete was attentive to all questions I had regardless of how silly they were. I highly recommend anyone to use Pete for their accommodations since I will be using him again as well.
This is my second time staying in this unit for an extended trip to Austin. The unit has undergone some renovations and is even more lovely than my first stay. The unit is quiet, private, and pristine. The added bonus is that it's in a fabulous neighborhood. Pete is a great and accessible host. I would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I have owned several vacation rental properties for several years. They are all in the same neighborhood that we in so we're always just a few houses away and always readily available if you need anything at all during your stay. The homes are fully furnished with everything that you would need for a short term or long term stay. If you have any questions about Austin or the area, we'd love to help!
