The Unique Benefits of the Hancock Guest Cottage and Hancock Guest Nest Vacation Rentals

We purchased our little 1933 rock cottage, the Hancock Guest Cottage and separate Hancock Guest Nest in 2007. Can you imagine what it was like in the 1930's? You'll be glad to know we kept many of the charming features from the telephone nook to the fold-down ironing board in the main cottage, and the Guest Nest features all of the modern conveniences of newer construction.

Wonderful stay at the Guest Nest

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 6, 2010
  • Stayed: Oct 2010
My daughter and I enjoyed an extended stay at the Hancock Guest Nest. We particularly loved the private little garden attached to the cottage, and the light infused space within the cottage.

The Guest Nest is private, and cozy. It reminded us a little of a loft studio in NYC. The furnishings were chic, and comfortable. The kitchen was thoughtfully designed, and we were especially pleased to discover the dishwasher! The washer and dryer and dressing room-sized closet were very helpful! The bathroom was large, and beautiful with a large rain-head shower and a very nice bathtub.

At the risk of making this delightful little cottage unavailable to myself for future stays in Austin, I HIGHLY recommend this property! The property owners were kind, and attentive to our needs when we had requests, or questions.

The location is ideal... near the university and not too far from downtown. Although we did have a car, we tended to walk around the area more than we drove. There are grocery stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. We had a terrific stay!

I stayed in Hancock Nest for the better part of two weeks. I couldn’t have been happier. the hosts, Nick and Rachel are terrific.
The cottage had everything; everything worked. It was so well laid out, so lovely inside and out, so well-situated. I would never stay anywhere else in Austin, and if I could find its equivalent elsewhere, I’d never grouse about the grousable aspects of travel again. – C.D.

Dear Rachel and Nick,

Thank's very much. We were quite comfortable and enjoyed the thoughtful amenities. Our son and his lovely bride will be in Austin about another year and a half so we plan on seeing you again. We also have friends and family who might enjoy your flat. Let us know if you get to Washington, DC!

Best Regards,

Nesting in the Nest

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 3, 2009
  • Stayed: Jan 2008
What a wonderful stay! A quaint, comfortable Nest. We were referring to it as out "home" the first day. The accommodations and amenities exceeded our expectations. The weather was super, 65-75 degrees every day and sunny. (In Minneapolis it was closer to 0 - 20 degrees.) Rachel and Nick were excellent hosts and did a marvelous job of preparing the Nest for guests. We felt like royalty. Thanks Nick and Rachel - you have done a great job!

Fabulous alternative to a hotel

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 25, 2008

I stayed at the Hancock Guest Nest for 2 nights when I was in Austin. This was a fantastic alternative to staying at a hotel, as you have a full kitchen, laundry, private outdoor seating, free Wifi, and conveniences like an iPod dock, platform bed, and overhead rain shower. The washer/dryer and laundry room was totally worth it, as I was able to catch up on laundry before the next leg of my trip.

The Nest looks exactly like it does on the website, and the location is great as well. It is literally adjacent to a shopping center (the back parking lot of Sears is like 20 feet away) but surprisingly this isn't a negative because it's still very quiet. Convenient to restaurants, grocery stores, and a golf course where you can go for a run around the perimeter.

Highly recommended. When I visit Austin again, I'll be back!
