About Eduardo Longoria

I love hospitality. I built and operate www.HabitatSuites.com since 1985. I also founded and operate www.CasadeLuz.org since 1991. Casa de Luz is a holistic educational center that serves healthy meals 3 blocks from this house. It wonderful to have people stay at this exquisite house and be pleased.

Eduardo Longoria purchased this house in 2009

Why Eduardo Longoria chose Austin

The location couldn't be better and the house is an architectural triumph. I had it under contract the day it went on the market.

What makes this house unique

It makes you feel good to stay in a beautiful house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was fabulous! Lots of wonderful space, and city views, especially the "space tower" Christmas tree! The upstairs, which is where I thought my brother would stay, was not even used, and it was great space....baby Henry slept in the room w/us, and his parents were in the other king bed room...our children from Utah stayed in the apt. Thanks for all and the house is perfectly appointed. We had a very special time, and the house was perfectly lovely & generous space for us!

Stunning Home, Great Location, Great for Girls' Weekend!

Stunning Home, Great Location, Great for Girls' Weekend!
  • 5 of 5
I recently went to Austin with six other friends for a girls' weekend getaway. We wanted a large house where we could all stay together and hang out. This house was perfect! It's absolutely gorgeous -- high-end finishes on everything, and tons of rooms to spread out and enjoy ourselves. We had plenty of room in the main house for the seven of us, so much that we didn't even end up using the guest apartment. It's in a great location, about a 5-minute drive from both downtown and South Congress. Eduardo was easy to work with and a great host! We'd definitely book here again!

Fantastic house in a great location

  • 5 of 5
This house was wonderful and in an excellent location. Beautiful area, great service from the owner and a house that is clearly very well maintained. The owner, Eduardo, was wonderful to deal with and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Amazing Stay in Austin...

  • 5 of 5
Needless to say, this house made for an incredible weekend. The property owner made this a seamless process and he was more than welcoming to our group. Despite it being January - we spent most of our time in the courtyard and porch which were immaculate... and thank you good weather. The windows stayed open all weekend.

The house had warm craftsman detail and luxury amenities in the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms which made it overly comfortable. We had to cook for 12 people... and there was plenty of room for this type of entertainment.

I'd recommend this home to almost anyone. I'm thankful for the stay and very appreciative of the owners ability to create the unique experience.

Sincerely,
PG

Austin weekend

  • 4 of 5
Wonderful home, and great location. Owner is great. Difficulties with operating cable, but in all fairness only contaced owner on last night. Also, you may want to bring additional towels, not many face towels in the home. But all else was wonderful, would definitely stay again and recommend this home.

Not quite special

  • 3 of 5
This house is in a good location and is quite lovely. Eduardo was very pleasant and nice to deal with, but we had several issues:

1. The sofa in the library collapsed when first sat on--the legs on one end collapsed.

2. The thermostat on the second floor wasn't working--it was miserably hot as the heat never shut off.

3. There were no linens in the powder room or kitchen. We had to call to get some and then were brought two washcloths (no handtowels) for the powder room. There were seven of us staying there. Also, one of the king bedroom baths had only one washcloth, one handtowel and two towels.

4. A minor point, but the tissue and toilet paper must have been the cheapest available.

5. The fan in one bathroom was very dirty.

6. While the master bedroom has a large screen TV, the one in the living area is quite small.

7. There was no power to the fancy Miele coffeemaker.

With a little extra care and attention, this could be a great property, but in the end, I must say we were disappointed with the quality. I expect that had we kept calling with issues, Eduardo would have addressed them, but we did not want to spend our long weekend in Austin dealing with folks in and out fixing stuff.

Owner's Response: Ouch! There goes my perfect record. I sent several of my staff to take care of whatever needs or short comings this family needed. I responded instantly to their requests for extra linens. There are 5 and a half bathrooms in the house. One of them indeed had lint on the ceiling exhaust fan. This is truly a fine house with the highest quality equipment. The Miele coffee maker has confused some people but it really is a one button operation that grinds the beans and makes fresh coffee. It is great if you are used to it but difficult when being set up for the first time which is why I provide a low tech coffee maker. Indeed, there was a A/C damper that got stuck and that has been repaired. I'm sorry I was unable to please this family.

Wonderful House, Wonderful Owner, Memorable Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent a memorable weekend in this wonderful house while in Austin for my daughter's graduation. Booking the house was a breeze with Eduardo's great communication and warm accomodating attitude. The house was even more beautiful than depicted in the photos. We look forward to a return visit.
