COMFY AND WELCOMING

  • 5 of 5
Great home with beautiful surroundings. My family enjoyed time together on the occasion of a friend's wedding. We ate on the back porch and loved it....kitchen well appointed, location close to everything we needed; very clean! We needed to press some wrinkles out of a shirt and the iron and ironing board came in handy. Beds comfortable; bathrooms well appointed. We will be back!

SUPER THRILLED W/ EVERY ASPECT OF THE RANCH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Super thrilled with the hancock ranch house. The photos on the sites could not capture what you feel when you walk through the door: the feeling that you know you picked a winner.

the spacious house is set in a nice neighborhood of austin, that is green clean and safe... a relaxing respite from the city. felt like real residents! it is spacious and well equipped, and clean. we are fussy travellers and found nothing to pick at with this place.

wi-fi was strong and easy to connect, washer and dryer worked great, dishwasher was handy with our dinner party, it was great place for our 2 year old with some toys already there and a choice of 2 high chairs. a bbq grill in the garden back yard. this was the kind of place i'd move into if we move to austin permanently

location was good too. a very short drive to a supermarket. and not too far to mopac highway 1 so you can get anywhere pretty easily.

the only negative i can come up with is that you'd probably need a car, but i find that true of all austin with so much to see around.

GREAT HOUSE IN SUPER LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We used to live in Austin and found the house convenient to all the places we wanted to go back and visit. There was plenty of room and we loved the outdoor space. It was very clean and had everything we needed for cooking. The neighborhood was great for taking walks. We highly recommend this house!

PETITE SUITE

  • 4 of 5
I stayed here for about 10 days and LOVED the suite, the location and Rachel and Nick bent over backwards to meet my needs and requests, and offered more than was advertised. Hope to stay here again. This would not be good with kids, only 2 people who want to share the very comfy bed will fit, but it was a perfect place for me this month!

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.
