I was born and raised in Austin and could not find a better place to live. Laura (my wife) is from Chiapas Mexico and is the one I give credit to giving the house all its unique colorful character and rustic feel. We live very close to the property and are always available to make you feel at home 100% of the time.

Tommy purchased this cottage in 1955

I have been to many places and even have lived a few years abroad. But I always come back to Austin and have yet to find anywhere else I would rather be. Austin is very unique in all that it has to offer - great universities, world class eclectic restaurants, and some of the top musicians in the world. I could not think of a better place to live and stay.

Our house has been in the same family since 1955. We recently did a full remodel and have kept the feel of a cozy charming cottage while opening up the kitchen and living room including a vaulted ceiling with skylights which lets all the natural light in. We also have a private driveway which keeps you from parking on the street.

Casita Lunita cannot be in a better location, only 2 blks from South Congress Ave. and 3 blocks from Stacey park which includes a jogging trail, swimming pool, and tennis courts.

LOVELY PLACE FOR A WEEKEND OF FUN IN AUSTIN

  • 5 of 5
We came down for a quick Girl's weekend in Austin. While I love a great hotel- sometimes you need more room to spread out and to make your own. I found this home to be well suited for our needs. There were plenty of bedrooms so we could all retire or get up at our choosing. Two bathrooms made it nice also. The living room had lots of seating for friends to come by and share a glass of wine. The natural lighting in the there highlighted all the bright colors and eclectic artwork. We loved having the grill for the friends we hosted for dinner on Sunday night. Rooms were quaint- but had all of our basic needs covered. Best of all-- it was walking distance to the south congress area which was a major plus for us. Shopping was first on our agenda, and then it was a quick walk to the neighborhood restaurants and food trucks. We also took a cab to the Sixth Street area for dinner on 2nd street--- that was about a 10 dollar cab ride one way. (which was fine- no drinking and driving for us.) The owners were very welcoming and flexible on our arrival time, which was really great. We had most of the kitchen items needed to make breakfast everyday we stayed and to make our dinner on Sunday. There is also a large backyard for relaxing but it was great for the two dogs we brought with us. (bonus points for being furry friend friendly!) We did not need them but there is a washer and dryer in the house. So if you are there for a few days that would be nice so you could do some laundry while there if needed. Overall this was a great place for the three of us- but it could sleep a few more if you had more in your group. The combination of the location along with the hospitality of the owners would make it a choice for us again when headed to Austin for more than just a one night's stay. Thank you to the hosts for sharing your home!

GREAT HOUSE IN PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We booked this house with a group of 6 women. It was absolutely perfect! There was more than enough room for us to sleep comfortably, and lots of living space.

To say that this house is in a great location is an understatement. It is a block from the best part of SoCo, and only 1.9 miles from 6th street. The cab home was only $14 for all of us! It's in a beautiful neighborhood with lots of trees, which makes for lovely mornings on the porch.

Tommy was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was there for us anytime, and was very flexible on our check in/check out times. The house was very clean and had a full kitchen for us to use.

I booked this place based on the reviews, and I was definitely not disappointed. I cannot think of a better place to stay in the area. Thanks so much for an amazing trip!!

FEELS LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My family had such a wonderful stay in this adorable home. The location is unbeatable (we especially enjoyed being within walking distance to Little Stacy Park, where our two-year-old loved the wading pool).
The home itself was perfect for our family of four (plus our four-legged friend). The fenced backyard was crucial, and the outdoor toys were an added bonus. During our kids' nap, my husband and I spent time on the covered front porch (with a ceiling fan), and we entertained guests on the back porch, where there is ample seating, in the evening.
In addition, the home owners were so kind and welcoming. They really made us feel very much at home right from the start, showing us around and assuring us that we could move knick-knacks and furniture as needed to keep them out of our baby's reach. Not to mention, he left fresh eggs from their chickens on the front porch on our first morning, so we were able to eat farm-fresh eggs for breakfast during our stay!
All in all, I can't say enough good things about this home. We hope to come back for another stay in the future.

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This house in the South Congress/Travis Heights area is great! Only a couple of blocks away from the hip strip of South Congress, but this is a quiet street with little traffic. A great location.

It is also a short walk to Little Stacy & Big Stacy parks with playgrounds, pool, trail, etc.

We stayed there for the month of May with our family of four (kids age 3 & 5). The house had everything we needed and was very functional. We loved hanging out on the front porch & the backyard.

Tommy & Laura were very accommodating and helpful. I would stay here again & recommend the house to anyone looking for a great spot in the south congress area.

CASITA LUNITA---GREAT AMENITIES & GREAT MEMORIES!

Casita Lunita---Great Amenities & Great Memories!
  • 5 of 5
I was intrigued by the colorful and eclectic decor of Casita Lunita when I first discovered it online and the actual home itself lived up to my anticipation and expectation upon arrival! The owner could not have been nicer, or more helpful and accommodating and he showed great pride in this home as he gave us the initial tour because it has been in his family for years and actually belonged to his grandmother. It has undergone a total refurbishing since his grandmother's time, and great attention to beauty, detail, comfort, utility and functionality was utilized to create the finished product that we so enjoyed. There were 5 adults in our group and we had more than adequate room to spread out and each have our own space. The neighborhood is well established with wonderful trees, foliage and many wonderful singing birds, and yet we were just blocks from the shops, restaurants and bars lining South Congress Avenue in the heart of Austin. We loved sitting on the front porch and watching a mother cardinal come and go and tend to the 2 eggs in her nest at the edge of the porch! We had a wonderful stay at Casita Lunita and look forward to the next time we come to Austin and stay at Casita Lunita once again!
