You can also walk a couple blocks west and you'll be at the vibrant South Congress Avenue (aka SoCo) — filled with fantastic restaurants, cafes, boutiques, and music venues. Take a short stroll north and in a couple minutes you will be downtown!!

OUT AND ABOUT ENTERTAINMENT

Walk to favorite Austin eateries, shops, entertainment or hangout at Doc's to people watch or catch a game or two, walk to Home Slice Pizza, Woodlands, Perla's, Vespaio, Enotecca, or HopDoddy's Burgers. 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. Zilker Park hike and bike trail, kayaking and Lady Bird Lake(Town Lake) which offers some of the best sculling in the country, bat watching from the South Congress bridge. 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

Take short cab ride downtown, grab a peti cab or enjoy a great short walk and be downtown in a couple minutes. There's even a convenient Capital Metro bus stop 1.5 blocks from the cottage.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2000

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…

This place definitely lives up to its description. It is in a fun and unique neighborhood - a very easy walk to South Congress - great place for dinner, shopping and entertainment. Close to 6th street and downtown as well. The accomodations are comfortable and clean. Nice backyard to relax in as well. Would definitely stay here again.

My Co-Founder and I rented the place to go pitch our new product around the tech scene at SXSW. This place was walking distance from everything and only about a $7 cab ride to the convention center but honestly most of the time we just walked. I will be back to Austin and when I do this will be the place I rent.

This spot is in a perfect location very close to S. Congress. Easy access ( a very short walk) to all the great shops and restaurants. The duplex is nicely appointed with granite countertops and modern furnishings. Also has a great backyard with very cool seating, benches hewn from tree trunks.

I really enjoyed my stay at your place and Lucy (Yellow Lab) really enjoyed having a back yard to play in, the surrounding neighborhood is very nice and quiet but close to the action 10min walk and yes Robert Plant does live in the neighborhood will come back and see ya again.

Listing description very accurate and reflects appearance and amenities. The property was clean, well maintained, and landscaped. I would recommend this to others. My only constructive comment would be to replace the "home goods" pictures with mirrors....it would make the place look larger and the women (certainly my spouse) would greatly appreciate it. Additionally, it's important to point out that there is no door between the bedroom and living room so it's more like one connected room. This is only an issue if one wants to watch TV while the other goes to bed. Overall, very good accomodations and an excellent location!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I am glad you enjoyed yourself and had a great time at Hillside Hideaway. I appreciate your feedback on the decorating. When I totally renovated and furnished the place I hired an interior decorator to assist in the decorating. My goal was and continues to be providing a quality, clean, comfortable unique environment. I think I have been successful with these goals. However, I will run your suggestions past my decorator.
I look forward to your next visit to Austin and return to Hillside Hideaway!!
