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.

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.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2000

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…

A Classy and Cozy SoCo Bungalow

  • 5 of 5
The owner of this property (Robert) is an absolute gem! This is a cozy, super clean and very nicely furnished SoCo bungalow - with a really cool fenced in backyard for the dogs to run and play. Also a very cool and convenient neighborhood with very friendly neighbors. This is the perfect Home Away for a couple looking for a nice long (or so) weekend in Austin.

And... you get Robert which means you get a very attentive and professional owner should you need him.

Thanks Robert!

We are really happy we picked your home.

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.

Awesome place to stay for SXSW or Anytime you're in Austin

Awesome place to stay for SXSW or Anytime you're in Austin
  • 5 of 5
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.

Great Soco location

  • 5 of 5
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.
