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 a rental. One of Austin's greatest markets, Central Market, is a short distance away - definitely worth a visit. The owners have pretty much guessed every need and provided for it - highly recommended.

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 to stay here again. Thanks so much.

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 lovely. Perfect size living room, beautiful kitchen and a lovely backyard. Even the neighbors were friendly. They introduced themselves upon my arrival and offered me any help i might need, even told me to stop by for a cup of sugar if i needed it! I would 100% recommend anyone looking to stay in Austin to book Rachel and Nick's lovely cottage or one of their other rental home options.

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, a cute market, etc. The price is reasonable and they've thought of everything to make you comfortable and welcome you to Austin. This is a wonderful alternative to a boring hotel, you will remember your unique time spent in the unique city of Austin when you stay here at Hancock Cottages.

Room Tip: We really loved our stay but I do recommend bringing your own pillows if you happen to be like me an...

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. Nick and Rachel were a delight to work with: quick to respond to questions, and very friendly. Highly recommended all around!

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.

It is a block away from a major bus route to UT and an easy walk to the Hyde Park area where there are good restaurants and coffee.

Best of all are Rachel & Nick, who are so accommodating and kind! Great place to stay.
