The Neighborhood

Hyde Park is a marked as a Historical Neighborhood in Austin. The houses and trees make you feel like you have been swept away from one of Americas fastest growing cities and into the world of yesteryear. In one direction you are very close to Central Market (an amazing grocery store) and a Taco Deli (hands down best tacos), and in the other direction you have Hyde Park's cute "downtown" including Quacks Coffee and Bakery (my fav), Dolce Vita, and Asti (one of Austin's classic gems)

For all of Austin this is an amazing food breakdown!

  • Craig has a super cool place that puts you right in the mix of things in Austin with plenty of space to relax when you're back from your event. Several grocery stores are close as well as a handful of amazing restaurants with fantastic tasting menus. Craig's place is a 10 minute walk to a great place for coffee (Houndstooth).
    No public transportation yet from Austin to COTA for MotoGP but Craig's place is only about a 25 minute car ride to the track.
    Craig appears to be very laid back and also very accommodating.
    Thanks for everything, Craig

  • Hyde park is a great area of Austin. The neighborhood was quiet and close to restaurants and grocery. Easy access to downtown by car or bus. The house was lovely, clean and well supplied. We 8 girls really enjoyed our stay.

  • We had a great stay at Craig's house during SXSW. The house was clean, comfy, and had plenty of room for our group. And the front porch and back patio are perfect for lounging. As advertised, the house is close to the bus stops and it was easy to get back and forth to downtown. Craig was a great host and easy to reach. Trust him when he suggests that you go to Taco Deli---amazing! Thanks, Craig for an amazing weekend!

    March 2014
  • This little Austin cottage was perfect for us. We had a group of 3 people staying for SXSW. Everything was just as it looked in the photos - the house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed.

    Craig was also very easy to communicate with. And he offered lots of tips, including bus routes -- which was very helpful!

    March 2014
  • We stayed four nights in Craig Carter's house four nights, my wife and I , my daughter and her husband and my other daughter and grand daughter . One night two additional members of the family stayed with us. The house was very comfortable, afforded both privacy and sociability. We cooked our dinners and breakfasts. One day we had 20 family and friends in the house to watch family dvd's . The occasion was my grandson's wedding and we came from all corners of the US and world. The location of the house is in a lovely quiet street. I highly recommend the place. Craig was always helpful with advice.

  • Very nice home and beautifully furnished. Very cozy. I wish there was some parking that wasn't on the street because one night, there were many cars on the street so it was a little hard to find a place to park. Craig was very nice, accommodating, and quick to respond to questions.

Howdy, I am a travel/worker myself. In 2011 I was lucky enough to be in India, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Ecuador....2012 I don't think I will have the same luck. I hope you enjoy your stay at my house. Cheers, Craig
