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.

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.

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…

What a great place to stay with so many great places to see in the area. This house was adorable and very clean. We loved watching all the birds as we sat in the backyard. It was quiet and peaceful. Thank you for the wine, Robert.

This was a lovely place to stay in Austin. Tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood, less than a 10 min walk to the very funky and popular SOCO neighbourhood.

The place was recently reno'd with beautiful accents and features. Clean, bright, well maintained and offers one of the best showers ever! :)

Robert is a wonderful host who provided tons of information about the area which was waiting for me at the rental.

The home is perfect for 1 person or a couple looking for a good base for Austin exploring.

The spacious kitchen has everything you need if you want to make your own meals.

There is a parking spot but you don't need a car, downtown was only a $7 taxi ride.

First Trip to Austin, Texas

Robert's place was perfect for my husband and I on our first trip to Austin. Decorated so nicely with a very comfortable bed. We were a 10 minute walk to South Congress where we could get coffee, Amy's ice cream, dine, and listen to music. There's also a great cowboy boot store there as well. Austin is a
very easy city to get around and Robert's place was perfect for our stay.

SoCo Gem!

Hillside Hideaway was the perfect respite for me on my recent two week business trip to Austin. I am familiar with the area from previous visits, but this was the first time I chose to stay in a vacation rental rather than a hotel. I was NOT disappointed! The house is immaculate, airy and light filled. The recent renovation is trend on and made all parts of my stay very comfortable. I loved the shower and wanted to bring it home with me :)
The SoCo neighborhood is stunning with small cottages nestled beside gorgeous Victorian mansions. The immediate neighbors were quiet and friendly and it was fun watching the antics of the chickens owned by the people in the house next door.
My husband joined me for the weekend and loved the house as well. We took full advantage of the back yard on the Sunday by sitting in the sun sipping wine and reading our books.
The restaurants and shopping on the strip are eclectic, delicious and fun. Uncommon Objects, The Continental Club, SoCo Café and Vespaio's are all fantastic. Doc's patio was just what we needed on Sunday morning - brunch consisted of awesome guacamole, salsa, chips and the best Bloody Mary I've ever had.
If I'm ever back in Austin I'll definitely book Hillside Hideaway again!

Perfect for a couple. Everything is updated, clean and comfortable. The main reason we wanted a house was for the kitchen facilities. This kitchen is great! Totally updated with great appliances, granite counter tops and well stocked utensils. Just bring your food! The bed was comfy (very important). Linens and towels were good quality. Bathroom was nicely appointed. Absolutely no disappointments with this cottage.
The location is excellent, just 2 to 5 minutes from absolutely everything. Neighborhood is quiet and safe.

Our Host Robert was extremely helpful through out the whole reservation process. We had to check in a day early because of impending bad weather and no problems. He has anticipated all your needs in the cottage and is only a phone call away. You can be assured a good choice with this Hillside Hideaway.
