We love the Loft!
We love the Loft!
My daughter and I stayed in the loft for a month and a half while working on a project in Austin. The loft is a cozy little fairy-tale of a place under the gables of the main cottage down below. We enjoyed the separate spaces in the loft: bedroom with nice closet, living room, utility room, very cool urban-style kitchen, chic, comfortable bathroom. The space is thoughtfully decorated with great amenities: cable tv, wireless internet, washer and dryer, stove, fridge... you name it! Big windows let lots of light into this little loft. This space is probably not the best for tall folks. The gables create some pretty severe angles in the space. The location is terrific! Although we had a car, we walked to lots of little coffee shops, and restaurants in the area, discovering the "best corner in Austin"-- 43rd St and Duval-- and its cool little grocery store and terrific cheese shop, coffee shop, and restaurants. We even walked to 6th Street one day (a LONG walk, but not impossible for the intrepid)! The gardens on the property are lovely. Finches live in a large enclosure, and a little pond with a fountain and filled with goldfish burbles pleasantly. There were many days during our extended stay in Austin that we chose to stay at "home" simply because it was so comfortable right where we were! Once or twice we had a need, or concern during our stay, and the property hosts, Rachel and Nick, attended to our needs immediately. I highly recommend any of the properties available through Nick and Rachel for a stay in the Austin area!

We enjoyed our stay in the Hancock Loft Hideaway. We walked to get groceries and to many super little restaurants nearby. Great University neighborhood location, very comfortable and well appointed. The bus runs right on Red River most anywhere you would want to go. Austin is a great city!

Why the Owner Chose Hyde Park:
Why Did We Choose the Hyde Park Hancock Neighborhood? If you know anything about Austin you'll know how feature-filled and rich the Hyde Park Hancock neighborhoods are. There are over a dozen restaurants and bars within four blocks! The neighborhood is quaint and cozy with the perfect location right on the bus line Downtown and to the University. The thing you'll like most about the Hancock Guest Cottage and Guest Nest are the lovingly created gardens and water features. It's a little oasis in central Austin!
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Walk, walk, walk! You're close to a dozen restaurants and cafes and are right on the bus line to the University and Downtown! One block to everything!: You are 1 block to the HEB/Sears Hancock Center and 4 blocks from Hyde Park Bar & Grill and Mother's Cafe. You can walk to the adjacent shopping center or down the block to regular bus service with easy access to places of interest. Three minutes to UT on the shuttle outside your front door.
