We are a family of five, with two boys off to college and a teenage girl at home. We built the house for guest originally, and VRBO allows us to rent it to visitors.
The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2008
Private, Hill Country setting near Austin and the Highland Lakes. Relaxing Porch with views of the bluffs of Lake Austin. Private pool.
I would love to give a terrible review on La Casita so that I could keep it all to myself, but I can't because our stay was simply fantastic. The owner could not have been more flexible or accommodating. We brought our seven month old lab puppy he swam in the pool and may have had the best time of all of us. Except maybe for our son who could not decide what he liked better the pool or the ping pong table.The Casita was clean the pool was great, we simply had a smooth relaxing time. I will be returning to La Casita for sure, I miss it already.
We stayed at La Casita in March during SBSW. It was a lovely, relaxing spot in the hill country and by Lake Austin. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and walking around the Lake Austin neighborhoods. The owner made us feel very welcome. He even let our grandsons pet his chickens and brought us fresh eggs. I don't know if that will always be possible. Even though the owner's house and La Casita share the yard and the pool, it felt very private. We definitely plan to return.
Nice, clean and comfortable home to spend some time in Austin and the surrounding Texas Hill Country. Owners are very easy to deal with, close by for problems that may arise, yet they give you all the privacy you could want. Even brought us fresh eggs from their hens that we used to make some great omelets!! Nice pool for when the weather is hot.
Great stay. Owners close by and accessible but gave us lots of privacy. Enjoyed the private pool, hammock, ping pong table, porch and deer prancing through the property. Easy 15-minute drive to downtown Austin. Easy access to Lake Travis as well. Entire family, even our little dog, enjoyed our stay. Thanks for sharing your lovely property.
Hubby and I stayed a week with our two labs. The secluded setting and super comfy beds guaranteed a great night's sleep. We were gently awakened each morning by warm sunshine streaming through the floor to ceiling windows in the main living area. You'll find all the technology you need, but we mostly enjoyed the front porch and sounds of nature. The landscaping is a beautiful representation of texas hill country built around a beautiful pool. Around dusk you can hear coyotes in the distance and we saw several deer roaming around. The affable owner is close by, but not too close. It's rare that my husband likes any place but home, but he said he could live at La Casita. It was a great place to stay and we look forward to a return visit.
Tip for dog owners: The Turkey Creek Trail in Emma Long Park feature a 3 mile off-leash trail for dogs that laces the the creek. You will need to pick up pet waste. The dogs absolutely loved it!
We had a wonderful college reunion at the Casita. 5 of us stayed here very comfortably. It's extremely. clean and beautiful. Feels like a hill country escape even though restaurants, shopping, etc are just right around the way. The pool is such a bonus. The beds are so comfortable that we were tempted to throw them in the back of the truck and take them with us!! I would highly recommend this place for anyone traveling to the Austin area. The Casita EXCEEDED my expectations.
