Overview

Long Branch Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Detached Game Room (Sleeps 4-6)

Serenity and a bottle of Texas wine await your arrival at Casa Mora, a tastefully-decorated modern stone 3 bedroom 2 bath home located 20 minutes from Austin.

Our home is a perfect base to explore both the cuisine, entertainment, culture and energy of Austin and the natural beauty and slower pace of the Texas Hill Country with its lakes, charming town squares, peach orchards, lavender farms, vineyards and breweries.

The house features an open floor plan, gourmet kitchen, entertainment center and office area with a computer and printer. The living space extends outdoors to include a patio and BBQ area, detached game room (with ping pong, Foosball,Smart TV and a double sized fouton) and a fabulous private pool that backs up to the 7000 acre Shield Ranch Nature Preserve.

We invite you to relax, listen to the chimes and watch the birds at our home away from home.

About Morrie Schulman and Rachel Gunner

Morrie Schulman and Rachel Gunner purchased this house in 2008

Why Morrie Schulman and Rachel Gunner chose Austin

We love the peaceful hill country setting only 20 minutes from our house in central Austin. The Texas Hill County is a beautiful, different world. We discover wineries, breweries, distilleries, lavender and peach farms, outdoor markets, nature areas and hidden treasures every time we visit.

What makes this house unique

Our home, only minutes away from downtown Austin, allows you to enjoy the energy of Austin's vibrant music scene and night life; and the quiet solitude of country living. Sitting on the back patio, sipping a glass of wine from a nearby Texas winery(our gift to you),listening to the music of the chimes and watching the multitude of birds is the best way to unwind from life's stressors. We cherish our time here as will you.

Beautiful property, extremely relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, relaxing place to stay. If you are just wanting to swim and relax or drive into town for dinner and fun, you are at the perfect place. Everything is close enough but feels like you are miles from town. Bedding is comfortable, kitchen has ALL you need to make a snack or made from scratch meal. The owners have left any information you could possibly need. The only thing I would bring extra of is pillows. There is a game room in a detached room with a day bed that could actually sleep a couple teens. We didn't use that but it is possible. The pool is amazing. This is a property we will most likely visit again.

Great location and wonderful place

The house was so comfortable with a beautiful setting and loved the pool. The location was perfect as well, Austin one direction and the country the other direction. We loved it!

Amazing little gem of a home!

  • 5 of 5

This house and property were perfect for me and my 2 friends. The pool was beautiful and clean. The surroundings were quiet and we were able to do some hiking. The house was in the country but close enough to state parks and grocery stores. It was just absolutely perfect !
