Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We've built up a very good reputation with our seven Hancock Guest Cottages over the past eight years--feel free to Google us--or please check out our Yelp reviews! rachel is a founding member and is on the Board of the Austin Rental Alliance and is one of the original 70 vacation rental owners here in Austin. We love all the interesting people we meet through renting our Hancock Guest Cottages in Austin. Nick is English while rachel is tried-and-true native Texan. We thrive on home remodeling and crafting gorgeous gardens. You may have seen us on HGTV Home and Garden Television. But the thing we are most proud of is being the new parents of beautiful twin girls. We are also Realtors so if you are thinking of moving to Austin and want a hand in your search, please let us know.

Why the Owner Chose Allandale:
What you will love about the Hancock Pool House is the gorgeous outdoor landscaping and pool and BBQ area. Our organic linens are all-cotton and good for the environment and good for you. And you can walk right out the back fence to the dog park or across the street to the 30 acre park. The Park has a swimming pool with lap swim lanes and several diving boards plus a children's wading pool, lighted tennis courts, basketball court, fishing pond, children's playground, and baseball field. If shopping is for you the Hancock Pool House is less than a mile from The Domain and the Arboretum. The Hancock Pool House is close to dozens of hip restaurants and cafes like HopDoddy, the Alamo Drafthouse, the Goodnight, and more. Or if you love to cook this fully equipped kitchen is for you. The Hancock Pool House has two large flat screen TVs (62' HiDef Samsung TV and 42' flat screen) equipped with cable and BluRay DVD players, iPod docks, a Playstation, and WiFi, etc. Housekeeping and driving service can be arranged if desired. Past guests include Facebook, Sony, and Warner Brothers. Don't take our word for it--Google us!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Allandale is a highly desirable neighborhood in Austin due to its central proximity to Downtown, the University, the Arboretum, and the Domain. We love that there are so many families in Allandale as well as a 30+ acre park complete with pond, tennis courts, and swimming pool. You'll enjoy taking long walks and bird watching--there are more trees in Allandale than anywhere. We love Allandale--we live there ourselves!
