Catch some evening sounds at the world famous star studded Continental Club who has featured such greats as Elvis, Stevie Ray Vaughan & The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Most recently Johnny Depp stopped by for a 90 minute jam session with Bill Carter and Billy Gibbons. No wonder we are known as “The Music Capital of the World”

In addition to the vibrant Soco area, Austin offers so many interesting attributes. Walk to festivals, concerts and marathons in the immediate area.

Visit the State Capital, the famous Bob Bullock Museum, and the second street shopping district. Catch a performance at the new Long Center for Performing Arts or walk to Zach Scott Theater. Swim in Barton Springs yet another refreshing spring fed pool. Visit the Convention Center or just stroll downtown where there are more great restaurants and live music, Auditorium Shores, Whole Foods Market, and so much more.

GETTING AROUND

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 cottage, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay here at Hillside! The cottage was charming, comfy and inviting (loved the bottle of wine and personal note on the counter when we arrived) It's also in a great location/neighborhood. We were close enough to walk all over SoCo and even across the bridge into downtown Austin and a nearby park off 1st street. It was an easy walk and very nice. As others have said, the cottage has comfortable, updated decor and everything you need: a well-equipped kitchen, laundry, a comfortable, large bed and a really nice walk in shower. It is located in a quiet neighborhood yet close to everything. There is also a large backyard with seating and grilling though we did not hang out there. We came for our anniversary and would definitely return again!

Charming place that adds to our Austin experience

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all: updated well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living room, beautiful bedroom with large comfortable bed, updated bathroom with great walk-in shower, large backyard that was perfect for relaxing with our dog, and within walking/running distance to parks, restaurants, and entertainment. I came to Austin with my husband for the marathon and to visit family/friends. The rental worked out perfectly as a place for all of us to get together. Everyone was very impressed with the place. The neighborhood is beautiful and peaceful, and a great place to unwind. I just wish we would have had more time to stay longer. If I ever get back to Austin I would hope to stay at this charming place.

Cozy rental in a delightful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I stayed for 2 weeks while getting away from the northern cold and visiting our 2 daughters. Space is perfect for 2 and has been tastefully updated and decorated. Kitchen was equipped to do some real cooking and loved that there were a few staples already there. The bed was comfortable and the shower great!

The area is fun to walk/bike around - close to park space or South Congress for everything else.

Robert responded to our questions quickly and was Johnny-on-the-spot when a lightbulb turned up missing from the desk lamp.

Definitely will consider staying there again.

cozy place in the heart of where you want to be

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for NYE 2015 with fiance. Simply put, perfect little place right in the heart of Soco and walking/biking distance from downtown (although we loved Soco so much we only made trip DT once). We had a great time, will come back again.

The Perfect Guesthouse!

  • 5 of 5

How wonderful to find Hillside Hideaway just steps away from our own home. It provided the perfect spot for our holiday guests to relax privately and enjoy their visit in great local style! They especially loved having their breakfast in the rose garden. This option was 100% better than offering guests our sofa. Thank you Hillside Hideaway for being another reason the SoCo neighborhood is a great place to be.
