This spacious guest apartment has been recently updated to include a new kitchen, new appliances, and new furniture. It has two bedrooms each with a queen size bed with fresh linens, a comfortable living room with everything that you need for your stay. Enjoy free wifi and cable tv on the large flat screen.

Everything you need is within just a few short blocks! For dining choose from ASTI, Mother's Cafe, Hyde Park Bar and Grill, and Julio's. Go grocery shopping at the local and organic grocery store, Fresh Plus. Get on the bus on the next block over and head straight to downtown and back.

The neighbourhood

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.

Other things to note

We are family friendly and can accommodate children 5 years old or older.

Pete's place was just as described, super clean and cute, and the deck outside was fabulous! He was wonderful to deal with, parking was easy and it's in a great neighborhood. Very quiet, but easy access to the freeways. We will absolutely be back!

The location is great for walks in the neighborhood, local restaurants and access to Austin. Pete was easy to communicate with and very helpful. Lots of space, nice table and chairs outside, very clean, looking forward to booking it again!

Pete's place was super cute, extremely clean, and much more spacious than the pictures show. It was in a lovely neighborhood, just a short, quiet walk to Dolce Vita, Antonelli's, and Quack's...perfect for breakfast, lunch, and happy hour! Convenient to downtown/UT (10-20 min depending on traffic), but not in the middle of a ton of action, so it is peaceful. This is a great place for work travel, a romantic getaway, or a trip with friends. Pete was always fast to respond to messages, and accommodated my need for a tax-free stay (because of work) and a very late checkout (half-day charge, super reasonable). We will definitely be back!

Hands down Pete is an incredibly responsive and communicative airbnb owner! The apartment was just lovely, stocked with all you may need, including starter supplies. The furnishings were all very tasteful and welcoming. The condition of the apartment was excellent and absolutely immaculate. The photos were representative of the apartment (which isn't always the case). We rented for a month and are extremely pleased. I've already recommended Pete's homes to several friends. The neighborhood was great - close to downtown... bus very nearby. Great little corner two blocks away with several restaurants, cheese shop, bakery and grocery. It couldn't have been more convenient. We will definitely rent from Pete on our next Austin visit. I am already missing my morning coffee on the deck!

This apartment is exactly as advertised! The rooms are large and well furnished. We especially liked the porch, which afforded nice afternoon sunshine. The living room is furnished with a nice HD TV and has access to a large number of HD channels. We have stayed in the Hyde Park neighborhood before and would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit. Great public transportation to downtown.

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!
