This beautiful home is situated in Allandale in the Shoal Creek area, a tranquil neighborhood with quiet, tree-lined streets.

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.

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

Why rachel nation chose Austin

The first time we saw the great lines of this 1960's rancher we fell in love . . . it had shag carpeting, popcorn ceilings, and wood paneling, but through the labor of love we were able to modernize it to today's standards. You'll enjoy all the light from the three sets of sliding glass doors as well as the uniquely angled ceilings.

Great house, great week

  • 5 of 5

The house was quite spacious for our 5 adults and 2 children. Very clean and very well stocked. Location was close to highways used to see sights each day. Rachel was easy to reach and easy to deal with. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious home in a quiet, green neighborhood in easy driving distance to just about everything. Having a full kitchen let us eat in or out easily and we made amazing burgers on the BBQ/smoker. Great place for a family. Rachel Nation was also very helpful, letting us take the place earlier than advertised and made sure we had everything we needed.

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

Austin is the center of the Lone Star State and is the gateway to the Texas Hill Country and the Highland Lakes. As the state capital and home to the University of Texas, the city supports a politically charged and culturally rich environment. Austin is hip and high-tech and is lucky to have a huge creative population of musicians, artists, and filmmakers. Austinites live for the outdoors as the city boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year. Nature trails and parks create an oasis in the heart of the city. Town Lake is bordered by 10 miles of hike-and-bike trails where joggers, walkers and cyclists exercise every day. You can take a thirty minute drive to cut your own lavender, bargain for antiques, or visit one of the many Texas wineries and breweries. There are also twenty state parks within a one hour drive.
