This house was huge (4BR) and had all the comforts of home. Impeccably landscaped yards, very modern design and was very centrally located with easy access to major freeways. The house was spotlessly clean, in very good condition. Given a choice between renting this home or staying in a full service, I'd pick the Hancock Modern every time!

We stayed in Austin x 5 nights for our daughter's UT law graduation celebration. Hyde Park is, in our opinion, the best location in town for a university occasion. The guest nest backs up to a large, convenient shopping center, but there is no noticeable noise. The unit is stocked with everything one might need-and street parking is right there,... More

We loved this house! This home was not only extremely comfortable but decorated retro chic with a cool eye for details. We were a group of five, two couples and a friend, coming for a music festival from Paris, France and we were quickly falling in love with Austin thanks to our marvelous stay in this unique house.

The old real estate mantra is very true for the cottage - 2 minutes to shopping center with market and huge liquor store, 2 minutes to the Interstate and in a nice quiet neighborhood. The property is well maintained and very clean. Nice linens and a very well stocked kitchen with many of the items you don't normally find in... More

Had a wonderful stay at this very cute and well located house! The house was supplied with everything we needed and was perfect for our family gathering. We had four adults in the house and had more than enough room. Everything was clean and comfortable. We had the owner's contact information, but never needed to use it. Will absolutely try... More

I come to Austin quite often to showcase my art. When i first rented the cottage i thought one thing... i'm never getting a hotel again. It is a lovely home, in an amazing neighborhood with all the amenities you would ever need for a trip within walking distance. Restaurants, Grocery store, liquor store, shopping center. The house itself is... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 2 year anniversary and it was lovely. Our hosts left us beautiful red roses and a bottle of wine to welcome us, incredibly sweet of them. Everything you need is there in the guest nest. Its nice to have the comforts of home on vacation. We could walk to HEB, the bakery,... More

We loved the Hancock Guest Cottage: tasteful decorations, updated amenities, private bathrooms for each bedroom, a sun-room out back, and a patio perfect for cookouts. The house even came equipped with a booster seat and children's cups and plates for little ones. We ended up staying around the house far more than we thought because everyone was so comfortable there.... More

We come to Austin to visit our family and find the guest cottages to be a great place to stay. The Guest Nest has everything you need: a wonderful secluded front porch with beautiful plantings, and a spacious, well-appointed, and bright studio room, bathroom, and laundry/closet. My granddaughter loves coming to the Guest Nest...for her it is like playing house.... More
