About The Owner

Austin resident for over 20 years with an unending wealth of knowledge about the city and activities. I can guide and direct you in whatever your interest may be.

Why The Owner chose Austin

Travis Heights and the SOCO area is an amazing location close to it all and allows the ability to walk to everything. The neighborhood is eclectic, safe, vibrant, friendly and reflects the true energy of Austin.

What makes this bungalow unique

The peaceful and private setting is so enjoyable. I so enjoy the upscale but eclectic vintage charm and character of the place and always feel like I am on vacation when I stay at Hillside Hideaway. I truly feel like I have step back in time and removed myself from the hustle and bustle of daily life!! However it is great to know I can take a short walk and be in the middle of it all again in a couple minutes but than escape back to peace once again…

Charming Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful property! The pictures do not do it justice. The house was so close to South Congress and was a perfect place for 2 people. It is decorated so well and the kitchen and bathroom are wonderful. The house is located on a nice quiet street and was a welcome change from a busy and noisy hotel. Robert was a joy to work with! My husband and I can't wait to stay in the house again on our next Austin visit.

Spent the weekend in Austin visiting our grown son and this was the absolute perfect place! So clean and great amenities; the owner puts a great deal of care in the unit - it is so well appointed, clean, organized and modern. Bed is comfortable, shower roomy with great water pressure and the kitchen has everything you could need. A GREAT find and we intend to return every time we visit Austin. The owner is exceptionally attentive to requests and is very professional AND welcoming. Highest recommendation!

Great rental, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here during ACL and it was a perfect retreat after the long festival days. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet, while still being close (walk-able) to restaurants and shops on South Congress. Robert was very helpful and accommodating. You can tell that he takes a lot of care in up keeping this unit.

Wonderful rental!

  • 5 of 5
This place was really great and I would definitely recommend it. Just a few blocks from the best part of SOCO with shops, restaurants and bars all within easy walking distance. A quick drive to downtown, or walk there in about a half hour. Nice quiet neighborhood yet so close to all the activity just a few blocks away. Super clean and nicely furnished!

Great neighborhood, all u need in a house!

  • 5 of 5
Great little spot in a fantastic, walkable neighborhood. We enjoyed the kitchen and bbq out back. Robert was super helpful and accommodating. Just a note- the bedroom doesn't have a door on it, so if you need privacy or quiet from the tv, know that the room and living area are essentially connected. Thanks Robert!!
