Austin House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy sitting by the sparkling pool, pond, and tranquil succulent gardens.

Relax in this modern California-style Austin vacation home situated in the Shoal Creek area just minutes from Downtown, the Med Center, and the University of Texas in a tranquil neighborhood with quiet, tree-lined streets.

Enjoy this mid-century modern open-plan home with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms for your Austin vacation. The king-size, double, and two single beds can easily accommodate 6-8 guests.  Our organic linens are all-cotton and good for the environment and good for you.

There's also a pull-out leather Queen sofa in the office area which has a flat screen monitor, Mac keyboard station, printer, etc. and plenty of work space if you need a desk away from home.

If you love to cook this fully equipped kitchen is for you. The Hancock Pool House has two large flat screen TVs (62' HiDef Samsung TV and 42' flat screen) equipped with cable and BluRay DVD players, iPod docks, a Playstation, and WiFi, etc.

After a day at the convention center, race track, or exploring town, come home to the tranquility of the pool and deck for a nice at-home BBQ in the garden, or try one of the many fine local restaurants.

Experience this very cool, convenient, central neighborhood with lots of character and conveniences--dozens of restaurants and cafes within 5 minutes!

What you will love about the Hancock Pool House is the gorgeous outdoor landscaping and pool and BBQ area. Our organic linens are all-cotton and good for the environment and good for you. And you can walk right out the back fence to the dog park or across the street to the 30 acre park. The Park has a swimming pool with lap swim lanes and several diving boards plus a children's wading pool, lighted tennis courts, basketball court, fishing pond, children's playground, and baseball field. If shopping is for you the Hancock Pool House is less than a mile from The Domain and the Arboretum. The Hancock Pool House is close to dozens of hip restaurants and cafes like HopDoddy, the Alamo Drafthouse, the Goodnight, and more. Or if you love to cook this fully equipped kitchen is for you. The Hancock Pool House has two large flat screen TVs (62' HiDef Samsung TV and 42' flat screen) equipped with cable and BluRay DVD players, iPod docks, a Playstation, and WiFi, etc. Housekeeping and driving service can be arranged if desired. Past guests include Facebook, Sony, and Warner Brothers. Don't take our word for it--Google us!

Allandale is a highly desirable neighborhood in Austin due to its central proximity to Downtown, the University, the Arboretum, and the Domain. We love that there are so many families in Allandale as well as a 30+ acre park complete with pond, tennis courts, and swimming pool. You'll enjoy taking long walks and bird watching--there are more trees in Allandale than anywhere. We love Allandale--we live there ourselves!

Best place in town!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Hancock Pool House was an absolute delight. Not only were the landlords always ready to help with any of our needs before and during our stay, but the house itself was so welcoming and very refreshing.

Having our entire team stay in Austin during SXSW was going to be a challenge, but Hancock Guest Cottages allowed up to find a bed for everyone on our team, and the drive from downtown Austin was simple, and a nice escape from the craze of SXSW.

We can't wait to return and stay here next year!
