About Tommy

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

Why Tommy chose Austin

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Perfect property and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the property met us the day we arrived and gave us a tour of the property. He couldn't have been a nicer, more gracious host. The bedrooms are all perfect sizes and the living room furniture is very comfortable. We enjoyed the spacious backyard. Great restaurants, bars and shops were all within walking distance. The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to cook breakfast at home every day. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic house with a lot of character

  • 5 of 5

The house is great - a lot of character and in great shape, the facilities in top shape and the location is awesome, just two blocks off the best part of South Congress. Tommy was a truly fantastic host, showing us around the house and keeping in touch during our stay making sure we had all we needed. The porch and garden we really nice, wish we had more time to enjoy them.

Friendly, flexible host & fantastic Austin house

  • 5 of 5

Tommy was a fantastic host and could not have been more helpful and flexible with our check-in, check-out, payment, etc. The house is extremely comfortable and cute—very Austin. It has everything you could possibly need as far as towels, supplies, dishes, even hair products. We loved lighting all the nice smelling candles too! This house is in a perfect location, very close to all South 1st Street and South Congress have to offer, as well as very convenient to downtown. I would recommend this for sure!

Stay HERE!

  • 5 of 5

Highly Recommend! This is an amazing property with lovely owners. And so close to all of the action.

Met by Tommy on our arrival - who showed us around the property and all of its amenities. Lovely quiet neighborhood. Great front porch and big back yard with seating area and patio. Beds were so comfortable, kitchen/diner open plan - which was great for breakfasts and catching up. Even had a couple of meals outside when the weather allowed. Everything you need is there!

It was my husband and I and my Mom and Dad. We all felt really comfortable and at home. Such cute decor as well! Felt lively, yet very homey! Being walking distance to so much action meant being able to head out without a car - which is a great thing and not always possible in Austin! I've visited many years for SXSW and would recommend this house for groups in town for events as it really is a stellar location!

Added bonus of an unexpected gift on arrival from Tommy and his wife as well as being so very accommodating when we realized my parents flight wasn't until late in the evening and ours was very early in the morning. He was flexible on our check out time - which helped tremendously as I really didn't want my parents sitting around in a cafe with their bags all day and no car to get around! Very kind.

We have family nearby and will be back - and we will be staying here on our next visit! Thanks to Tommy and his wife for making us feel at home!

Wonderful place in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This spot has it all:

Location--beautifully quiet, yet a 5 minute walk to the "coolest street in America", close to great restaurants, shops & food trucks. Easily walkable to downtown.

Property--Very nice historic cottage, wonderful wood floors and antique furniture, 3 good sized bedrooms, and the 2nd bathroom a real plus. Very well equipped kitchen--we cooked Christmas dinner with ease. Spacious backyard with sitting area, and BBQ which also came in handy.

Owner--Tommy was a fabulous host--responsive, helpful, gave us lots of good tips.

Highly recommended!
