The Unique Benefits of the Hancock Guest Cottage and Hancock Guest Nest Vacation Rentals
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? You'll be glad to know we kept many of the charming features from the telephone nook to the fold-down ironing board in the main cottage, and the Guest Nest features all of the modern conveniences of newer construction.

My daughter and I enjoyed an extended stay at the Hancock Guest Nest. We particularly loved the private little garden attached to the cottage, and the light infused space within the cottage.
The Guest Nest is private, and cozy. It reminded us a little of a loft studio in NYC. The furnishings were chic, and comfortable. The kitchen was thoughtfully designed, and we were especially pleased to discover the dishwasher! The washer and dryer and dressing room-sized closet were very helpful! The bathroom was large, and beautiful with a large rain-head shower and a very nice bathtub.
At the risk of making this delightful little cottage unavailable to myself for future stays in Austin, I HIGHLY recommend this property! The property owners were kind, and attentive to our needs when we had requests, or questions.
The location is ideal... near the university and not too far from downtown. Although we did have a car, we tended to walk around the area more than we drove. There are grocery stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. We had a terrific stay!
I stayed in Hancock Nest for the better part of two weeks. I couldn’t have been happier. the hosts, Nick and Rachel are terrific.
The cottage had everything; everything worked. It was so well laid out, so lovely inside and out, so well-situated. I would never stay anywhere else in Austin, and if I could find its equivalent elsewhere, I’d never grouse about the grousable aspects of travel again. – C.D.
Dear Rachel and Nick,
Thank's very much. We were quite comfortable and enjoyed the thoughtful amenities. Our son and his lovely bride will be in Austin about another year and a half so we plan on seeing you again. We also have friends and family who might enjoy your flat. Let us know if you get to Washington, DC!

Thank you for making our stay the quintessential Austin experience. The nest was perfect, central and a haven. We look forward to making this an annual destination!
See you next time!

What a wonderful stay! A quaint, comfortable Nest. We were referring to it as out "home" the first day. The accommodations and amenities exceeded our expectations. The weather was super, 65-75 degrees every day and sunny. (In Minneapolis it was closer to 0 - 20 degrees.) Rachel and Nick were excellent hosts and did a marvelous job of preparing the Nest for guests. We felt like royalty. Thanks Nick and Rachel - you have done a great job!

Rachel and Nick,
We felt very comfortable and peaceful in your studio. We spent a good chunk of our stay just lounging around here - testament to the attractiveness of the place!
Thanks very much for all the thoughtful touches. We appreciate it.

P.S. The food you had was just right.

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.
