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.

Awesome house, amazing location

Six of us stayed here for a "girls weekend." The house was perfect -- lovely decor, awesome front porch and backyard, and we never felt cramped. The owners were very responsive and welcoming. Also, amazing location! We loved the South Congress neighborhood, and the house is only a few blocks from the main drag (we rented a car and barely used it). Highly recommend staying here -- if I come back to Austin, I will stay here again!

Beautiful house. Clean, well equipped, super comfortable, in a quiet street but very close to SoCo. I put my mum, brother and uncle up here while they came over from UK & France for my wedding and they all loved it. No complaints whatsoever.

Our stay here was a result of an impromptu Austin trip that happened to fall on SXSW. Obviously, hotels and vrbo/homeaway were at a premium and this place was open for the 2 nights we needed. It's in a great location to South Congress, but a couple blocks off to still be private. We even made a walk to 6th street when we couldn't get a cab (recommend cab though, only $8). The owners made it really easy to check-in and out as they were more than accommodating. We loved making a fire out back the last night and thanks again for being so attentive/flexible.

Fantastic home away from home

I was born in Austin, and I've lived many years of my adult life there. Tommy's place embodies the Austin spirit: comfortable, laid back and fun.

We were here for SXSW, and the home was a perfect place for us to recharge our batteries after hours of schmoozing and partying. We could hang on the back porch, kick up our legs on the front porch or watch some TV inside.

Everything was clean and worked beautifully. We used the dishwasher, coffee maker, showers and even the washer/dryer to make sure we went home with clean clothes. Awesome.

The location is also great. It's just two short blocks from South Congress, where you'll find Austin's best shops, restaurants, food trucks and bars.

If we get the opportunity, we'll stay here again.

Our stay at Casita Lunita was outstanding. We had 7 people (3 couples and one other adult) and never felt cramped for space. The house is very well kept and has great charm. The owners of the property were very accommodating and attentive. The location cannot be beat if you are looking to be close to the heart of SoCo. We would definitely stay here again!
