We visited Austin for our cousin/nephew's wedding. This well laid out house with fun modern decor was a great place to congregate and relax while we popped back and forth to different wedding related events. The house has concrete floors throughout and a fun modern feel. It has a nice size vaulted family room area with cool modern fixtures a...

Our recent stay was at the "Guest Nest", the studio apartment cottage at the rear of the Hancock property. After much searching for Austin accommodation, this was the winner in terms of price and was certainly a good value. It has a stripped-down, Austin 'industrial quirky chic' feeling; lots of plywood and metal and hard surfaces. The studio setup makes...

Hancock Cottage's are an excellent choice over a hotel in Austin. Good location. Quick access to SoCo and lower streets. Fair amount of Car2go's near by. Not as many as in the core but that's wxpected. Nice to have your own kitchen and ensuite for each room. Beds were decent but a little soft for my likening. Nice private back...

A wonderful cottage in a fun part of Austin! The cottage is perfectly stocked with everything you need - a full kitchen, laundry, internet, tv, dvd, two bedrooms and baths. The neighborhood is extremely walkable with fun restaurants and coffee shops. The internet was very fast. My husband was able to work remotely. The sun room made a perfect office...

No matter what your doing in Austin, you need to stay in one of the Hancock Cottages properties. The owner has thought of, and accounted for every detail. It truly feels like home away from home. Everything is fresh, clean, modern, and comfortable. The properties are nestled among great neighborhoods on the north-central Austin with ease of access to the...

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.

I stayed for a month. No car needed. The bus stop is around the corner and the HEB only seconds away. The studio has everything I needed for my stay. It's bigger than it looks at the pictures. The furniture and decoration is very tasteful. Rachel and Nick very nice and helpful people. I had a great time in Austin....

I stayed alone in the Hancock Loft Hideaway on East 43rd Street for three and a half months. I was travelling from the UK to study for a semester on a scholarship at UT. The loft hideaway is just fantastic. It was a lot bigger in real life that it appeared on the online photographs which was a pleasant surprise...

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,...

“The bed is very low so it may be difficult for people with back issues to get in and out of bed.”

“There's a grill in the back yard:-)”

“The queen-sized bed is comfy but be aware-it's a low-to-the-ground platform bed.”

“We really loved our stay but I do recommend bringing your own pillows if you happen to be like me and are a little particular about the comforts of home! The guest nest is perfect and secluded with its own little patio, very private.”
