About Greg and Carol Jackson

Carol and Greg are native Houstonians who moved to Austin in 1996, although Greg worked as a musician and Carol attended UT in Austin in the 70's. Greg has returned to being a full time musician and Carol now practices acupuncture in our home and also in a clinic.

Please let us know if you are interested in an Acupuncture Treatment, Massage, or Herbal Consultation.

Greg and Carol Jackson purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Greg and Carol Jackson chose Austin

We had lived out in the Hill Country and decided that we wanted to live in town when Carol started her acupuncture practice. We fell in love with the Hyde Park neighborhood and neighbors, as well as our 100+ year old Victorian home. Greg is an accomplished builder and carpenter, so the wonderful old house offers many remodeling project opportunities - we're not quite finished!

What makes this apartment unique

We love living here in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood where we actually know and visit with our neighbors. This is a place where everyone gets out for walks, jogs, and bike rides and everyone takes the time to get to know one another. We know our guests will experience this first hand as they walk to one of the nearby restaurants or other closeby attractions

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Greg & Carol,



Thank you so much for letting us stay at your lovely apartment. The accomodations were wonderful and the Austin literature and guide books were incredibly helpful! The binder you made had easy to follow instructions and we made heavy use of your recommendations.



The apartment had everything we needed....Thanks again for everything!!

A hideaway worth finding

  • 5 of 5

A smart, stylish apartment in a cool area of Austin. the apartment is perfect for couples seeking a residential base to explore the delights of Austin. Greg and Carol are great hosts, and they have provided a comprehensive guide to the best aspects of their city. The apartment is close ( 5 minutes walking ) to some great places to eat and people watch. There is a good bus link into Austin, so you see the sites without the need of a car. We had a great time and have no hesitation in recommending this hideaway.

Delightful neighborhood and Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Hyde Park Hideaway. The neighborhood is delightful and very quiet with numerous walk-able options. The Hideaway was spotless and very comfortable with everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Having the use of the BBQ was an extra bonus. Greg and Carol were very friendly and responsive. Especially appreciated their detailed neighborhood file highlighting different food, music and shopping options. Would highly recommend their apartment to anyone looking for a place to stay in Austin!

Beautiful Hyde Park apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything you need for your stay in Austin: it is beautifully designed with great furnishings, the kitchen is well-stocked and the neighborhood is quiet with lovely historic homes. It is one of our favorite places that we have stayed at while traveling. We have stayed there twice and would gladly book again!

A perfect place

  • 5 of 5

We've used VRBO many times in our travels and they've all been good. Hyde Park Hideaway was, by far, the nicest. The neighborhood is charming and very walkable with shops and restaurants nearby. It was convenient to many of the attractions we wanted to visit. The apartment itself is nothing short of perfect. My first instinct was to stay in and enjoy it rather than go anywhere. The kitchen and bathroom are lovely and immaculate. We would never consider staying anywhere else in Austin.

excellent

  • 5 of 5

Hyde Park Hideaway was the ideal accommodation for us. A lovely one bedroom, separate living and kitchen combined garage apartment. we have stayed here before and loved it. Spacious, clean and beautifully furnished and supplied with anything you would possibly need to make your stay comfortable and relaxed. The location has easy access to the interstate, groceries (the excellent Central Market close by), restaurants and even a hospital. The neighborhood is lovely and fun to walk in. Greg is the perfect host, easy to work with, prompt and responsive to any need you might have. He has also thoughtfully provided information about the apartment, restaurants nearby and local attractions. This is a gem of a place!
