THE UNIQUE BENEFITS OF THE HANCOCK GUEST COTTAGE:

We purchased our little 1933 rock cottage, the Hancock Guest Cottage and separate Hancock Guest Nest in 2007. Can you imagine what it was like in the 1930's?

The old real estate mantra is very true - 2 minutes to the shopping center with market and 2 minutes to the Interstate and in a quiet neighborhood. A wonderfully furnished kitchen. Combo lock eliminates worrying about a key. Very clean and nicely maintained with wonderful towels. Highly recommended

This was exactly as described, modern kitchen and showers, spotless, comfy beds. Loved the pretty goldfish and finches in the back. First time to rent a house - so much better than hotel rooms.

Charming house in an ideal location

We loved the Hancock Guest Cottage: tasteful decorations, updated amenities, private bathroom for each bedroom, a sun-room out back, and a patio perfect for cookouts. The house even came equipped with a booster seat and children's cups and plates for little ones. We ended up staying around the house far more than we thought because everyone was so comfortable there. The cottage was perfectly situated in central Austin, easy to take walks in the Hyde Park neighborhood and to get down to the UT campus. Nick and Rachel were a delight to work with: quick to respond to questions, and very friendly. Highly recommended!

Being frequent VRBO renters, we know what we want- Clean, safe, user-friendly properties with solid Wifi. Rachel had all the bases covered. We stayed in her Ranch house the first night before moving to the cottage and both were renovated and decorated with style and thought. Furthermore, she took the extra step to use Mac AirPort Extremes in both properties for bomb-proof Wifi. She was in good communication with us the entire stay, and when my wife left some sentimental jewelry behind, she secured it and sent it back to us. Overall, a wonderful experience and we would definitely rent again from Rachel!

Hancock Guest Cottage a Charmer!

What a wonderful house, the only word that describes it is charming. It was a comfortable place to hang our hats for a few days. The deck area was a huge hit, we enjoyed the fish pond and the finch aviary with the sweet little birds. It was so easy to walk to the Hyde Park Bar & Grill and Mother's Cafe for our meals out . . . great location! The Hancock Guest Cottage provided us a wonderful vacation and we will surely be back!

Map

Car: recommended

Austin is the center of the Lone Star State and is the gateway to the Texas Hill Country and the Highland Lakes. As the state capital and home to the University of Texas, the city supports a politically charged and culturally rich environment. Austin is hip and high-tech and is lucky to have a huge creative population of musicians, artists, and filmmakers.

Austinites live for the outdoors as the city boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year. Nature trails and parks create an oasis in the heart of the city. Town Lake is bordered by 10 miles of hike-and-bike trails where joggers, walkers and cyclists exercise every day.

You can take a thirty minute drive to cut your own lavender, bargain for antiques, or visit one of the many Texas wineries and breweries. There are also twenty state parks within a one hour drive.

Golf: The Hancock Guest Cottage is across the street from the oldest golf course in Texas. The Hancock Golf Course is a 9 hole course created in 1899.
