This is a gem! My husband and I were looking for an escape from the cold and Austin came to mind. In my search for a place, I came across La Casita. It proved to be a peak experience - a small home of our own in what felt like rural hill country but was only a 20 minute drive to downtown Austin.
Our Casita was one room with a bed, comfy sofa, table and chairs and a small but functional kitchen. You go down several steps from the main room to a great bathroom. It was comfortable and met all our needs.
I especially liked having our own porch and small garden/yard area, and the chickens at the entry way to the property were friendly and quite - all hens so we enjoyed some eggs.
Claudia is a wonderful host. She is a potter and her studio is on the property along with her house. She was available for any questions, and we so enjoyed using her fabulous plates, cups and bowls for our breakfasts.
I highly recommend this place and will certainly return when our travels take us to Austin again.
