“A lovely home away from home!”

The listing for this property was very accurate. Hyde Park is a lovely residential neighborhood. The unit was extremely clean and nicely decorated. The upstairs bedroom was spacious with a large amount of closet space and plenty of lighting. The queen mattress was extremely comfortable. The stairs leading to that bedroom are narrow, but very solid and secure.

The living room was great. It has a huge sofa, large coffee table, and two desks for computers/games, etc. The TV is a modern flat panel HD model.

The kitchen was very spacious. While there is no automatic dishwasher, the large double sink and plastic dish drain allowed us to easily keep up with the dishes--and we typically ate 1-2 meals a day at the rental. Scrubbers, dish soap, and dish towels were all provided. The kitchen had a full-size refrigerator with a Brita pitcher. Most utensils were provided, as well as salt, pepper, and dry goods left by the the owner or previous renters that made it easier to use. The only items lacking were bakeware, such as a pizza pan and a 13x9 pan, which would have been helpful.

The laundry facilities are in a detached garage. We came prepared with laundry soap and dryer sheets, but if you get lucky, there might be some left in the laundry room for community use. The easiest access to the laundry is through the door facing the back yard instead of the street, since the overhead light is visible at that entrance.

The bathroom had a modern toilet and sink with a nice mirror, and plenty of very absorbent towels. The tub is an old-style claw-foot tub, which can be either very charming or a bit of a challenge, depending on your height, age, or any disability. We managed, but it was our least favorite feature of the house. If you love the idea of long soaks in a deep tub, then you will be thrilled.

We did not use the back room of the rental, which contained a dinette with seating for four, as well as an oversized day bed and a regular twin bed.

Be sure to visit Quack's Bakery and the businesses at 43rd and Duval. The staff at Antonelli's were great, and we enjoyed a dinner at Hyde Park Grill. For the best prices, if you have a car, go to H-E-B for groceries. Central Market was also very good but a bit more expensive, and Fresh Plus the most expensive and smallest.

Pete was a wonderful landlord and very responsive to my many questions before our stay. We would definitely rent from him again if we returned to Austin.

Liked best: The sleeping comfort of the upstairs bed was amazing, and we also loved the living room.
Liked least: The claw foot bathtub was a bit difficult for my husband and I to get in and out of, but we managed.

We stayed here for three nights and have nothing but good things to say about the experience. The house was nicely furnished (all from IKEA haha) and I loved that the kitchen had pretty much anything we needed to cook-- silverware, pots and pans, dishes, even olive oil (hate having to buy that every time). Bed and couch were both super comfy. Convenient to lots of great stuff in Austin and the neighborhood it's in is adorable. Would definitely recommend staying here instead of an overpriced hotel.
