Catch some evening sounds at the world famous star studded Continental Club who has featured such greats as Elvis, Stevie Ray Vaughan & The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Most recently Johnny Depp stopped by for a 90 minute jam session with Bill Carter and Billy Gibbons. No wonder we are known as “The Music Capital of the World”

In addition to the vibrant Soco area, Austin offers so many interesting attributes. Walk to festivals, concerts and marathons in the immediate area. Zilker Park hike and bike trail, kayaking and Lady Bird Lake(Town Lake) which offers some of the best sculling in the country, bat watching from the South Congress bridge. Visit the State Capital, the famous Bob Bullock Museum, and the second street shopping district. Catch a performance at the new Long Center for Performing Arts or walk to Zach Scott Theater. Swim in Barton Springs yet another refreshing spring fed pool. Visit the Convention Center or just stroll downtown where there are more great restaurants and live music, Auditorium Shores, Whole Foods Market, and so much more.

GETTING AROUND
Take short cab ride downtown, grab a peti cab or enjoy a great short walk and be downtown in a couple minutes. There's even a convenient Capital Metro bus stop 1.5 blocks from the cottage.

Owner info

About the owner: Austin resident for over 20 years with an unending wealth of knowledge about the city and activities. I can guide and direct you in whatever your interest may be.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown:
Travis Heights and the SOCO area is an amazing location close to it all and allows the ability to walk to everything. The neighborhood is eclectic, safe, vibrant, friendly and reflects the true energy of Austin.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
The peaceful and private setting is so enjoyable. I so enjoy the upscale but eclectic vintage charm and character of the place and always feel like I am on vacation when I stay at Hillside Hideaway. I truly feel like I have step back in time and removed myself from the hustle and bustle of daily life!! However it is great to know I can take a short walk and be in the middle of it all again in a couple minutes but than escape back to peace once again…
