An Austin Gem!

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for an Austin area home in a wonderful neighborhood, where great care has been taken in attending to all the details, so that you will feel completely at home, then you will love Hancock Guest Cottages.

We were fortunate to stay in the beautifully decorated and fabulously furnished "Hancock Modern". Every room, every closet, every cupboard was exquisitely appointed and organized, and included everything you could possibly need for short or extended stay.

And then there's Rachel, the owner of the Hancock Guest Cottages. From our first contact with Rachel, through the completion of our stay, we felt completely cared for. Rachel is responsive, organized and also great resource for anything you want to know about staying Austin.

Sometimes the vacation rental itself can make for a fabulous stay away from home. Sometimes it's having a wonderful host. And sometimes you get lucky and you get both. We loved our time at Hancock Guest Cottages and so appreciated Rachel's gift for creating a warm and inviting home and sharing all the good that Austin has to offer.

Hancock Modern Was a Christmas Treasure

  • 5 of 5
Hancock Modern was a perfect setting for three generations to come together for the Holidays. The layout is open and yet there were spaces for someone to go to read or go online. On the good weather days we could sit outside in the fenced in yard while the grandchildren played. At night all 8 of us flopped on the plentiful seating in front of the TV to enjoy traditional holiday videos our youngest daughter brought for our enjoyment. Meals were easy in the well appointed kitchen which is important because we are a family of cooks and bakers. We enjoyed many activities in the area such as the local playground up the street, a hike along Austin's Greenbelt, and Austin's Thinkery which is a great interactive experience for children. Stores were convenient to the friendly neighborhood in which Hancock Modern is located. The grandchildren especially liked the neighborhood light display for the season. We will definitely recommend this property to our friends should they come to Austin.

LOVED this house!

  • 5 of 5
This home was not only extremely comfortable but decorated retro chic with a cool eye for details (Rachel?!). 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.
Description, photos, listing were accurate and plus +. Delightful yard in the back was a surprise (no photos on the site).
We had a warm welcome with music playing and few lights on as we arrived at night. There was a little problem with a toilet that was taken care of by Nick the same day. We really felt that the owners had put a lot of love and thought into this home and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay, which we thoroughly did. Thank you, Rachel and Nick!
Highlights of our week stay: Austin Psych Festival, Barton Springs Creek pool (the local pool was enjoyed, too!), La Condesa, food trucks, Ginny's Little Longhorn Saloon, beer

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
We used this house for a weekend when we had lots of guest in town. I live a block away so guest could easily walk to and from. Our guests found the location convenient when they ventured out on their own. We had five adults, two couples and a single adult., however, the house would easily sleep 8 guesting in bedroom plus there is a daybed/futon as well as two more sofas. Much more economical then a hotel. I have used VRBO in many countries. As a result I was pleasantly surprised at how well appointed and maintained the house was. On setting up the house for guest arrival I noticed the coffee carafe was missing in the coffee maker. I called the owner, she picked up immediately. Directed me to a supply area in the garage where they stock supplies and where the replacement carafes are kept.
All appliances worked well including A/C and washer / dryer. The owners have extra fans stored in each bedroom closet for guests.
Owners live near by and are as professional as delightful. The whole experience was easy from reservation to checkout. I will be using this house again for future guests.

Amazing home and location!

  • 5 of 5
I came to Austin to look for a warehouse space to start my art studio, I had rented another one of Rachel and Nick's lovely homes, the Hancock cottage which is also a beautiful spot to stay. Rachel was kind enough to book me into the Hancock Modern last minute, making sure that everything was perfect for the stay. The house layout is absolutely GORGEOUS. 4 large rooms with very comfortable beds. The living room is large and very inviting, a great spot to have business meetings or just hang out with some friends. The kitchen was spectacular, everything you need to cook up a storm is ready at your fingertips, and if you aren't wanting to dirty the kitchen up the house is surrounded by amazing places to eat. Northcross shopping center is a bike ride away, and the Domain which is one of the most impressive shopping centers i've seen is just a 5 minute drive away, tons of wonderful stores to shop around in and some amazing restaurants. Rachel the home owner went out of her way to make sure that my stay was perfect, some of the most wonderful customer service i have received. All in all, a perfect stay for a group of friends, business meetings, or just a family vacation. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone making a visit to Austin.

Location

Activity and Interests

Spend your afternoons relaxing on the deck, or take a walk in the nearby 30-acre park. The Park has a huge pond, swimming pool with lap lanes, diving boards, and a children's wading pool, lighted tennis courts, basketball court, children's playground, and baseball field.

You are about a mile from Austin's best grocery stores (Whole Foods and Central Market), a short drive to the University of Texas and to any downtown location. You are four blocks from the 30 acre Northwest Park with pool, tennis courts, and children's playground and across the street from the Shoal Creek hike and bike trail leading to Lady Bird Lake.

The Hancock Modern vacation rental features stained concrete floors, and the home has been completely remodeled with new appliances.

The Hancock Modern short term rental can be found in the quiet, tree-lined streets of Austin's Shoal Creek neighborhood, just 10 minutes from Downtown, the Med Center, and the University of Texas.

Get away from the hustle and bustle in the Hancock Modern vacation rental, located in the tranquility of historic Allandale. Austin attractions abound, eat out at a dozen restaurants within a mile, or stay in shape on the 8 mile jogging path just one block away.

Stroll in the park or dine at the numerous nearby restaurants and cafes.
