  • We had a great time visiting Austin! The Charming Hyde Park Casita was a great location for us. Caroline was very quick in her email response. I would recommend this as a great option for accommodating several guest on your next Austin experience!

  • This is a great little casita located near the heart of Austin! Easily accessible by the Capitol Metro and in a quiet neighborhood. I would be happy to stay here again in a heartbeat!

  • The Casita in Hyde Park is a great bungalow, plenty roomy for two and could be comfortable for four. Caroline has equipped the space with everything we needed and more. The towels were soft, the books wide-ranging and the games plentiful.

    We LOVE the neighborhood with a park and pool nearby, and lovely, quiet neighborhood streets to walk in mornings or evenings.

  • Thanks to Caroline for a great stay! Her Hyde Park Casita is cute, clean with everything you need for a few days of fun in Austin. You simply can't beat the location - walkable to everything you need. We'd definitely stay again.

  • The Casita was fantastic! I rented it for a friend who wanted a walkable neighborhood near campus, & this part of Hyde Park (where I also live) is perfect: coffee shops, restaurants, & a great little grocery store, near a bus that goes to campus and then downtown. The Casita is spacious but cosy, and Caroline was absolutely wonderful to work with. It's also a GREAT value for Austin.

  • Lovely retreat. Fabulous location. So easy to reach anything. I spent time here while babysitting my new granddaughter. Park across the street is wonderful. The first few days of my stay the street was being torn up to repave. HUGE road tools all over the place! I never even heard them!
    Slept like a baby. I will SO COMPLETELY come back when visiting family in Austin.

  • Delightful place, great books, nice radio (and on preferred station when arrived!), quiet, very private, in very good location. Stay was very easy and hassle-free for us, very highly recommended.

  • Great little place in a charming neighborhood with easy places to walk to, no problem parking, and easy to get the local bus to downtown or the University. We came for the F1 race and it was great to partake in the festivities downtown but come back to a quiet place to easily sleep in the next morning.

    Also very useful in not disturbing the owners since they have a corner lot and the Casita has it's entrance on one side while the owner's main house faces the other side of the corner.

    If we come to F1 in Austin next year we'll definitely put this place on the top of our list.

    November 2012
  • Fantastic space in a fantastic neighborhood. Caroline made sure the Casita had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and it was a wonderful visit.

About
My husband Adam and I run a small, arts focused high school here in the neighborhood called The Griffin School. Prior to joining him in this endeavor, I worked in the film industry here in Texas as a location manager, scouting and arranging the logistics for movies and television productions of all sizes. I grew up in South Carolina, spent a year studying in Innsbruck, Austria and graduated from the University of Notre Dame, before making my way to the warmer climate of Austin. We have 2 sons, ages 10 and 12. They are sweet, athletic boys who spend much of their time at the basketball courts and park across the street. Austin has been my home for 20 years and I love every single thing about it-the celebration of eccentricities, the live music, the vibrancy and activism, the weather and the fabulous people that make it such a special and unique town.
