Overview

Austin House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom / 1 full bath - Sleeps 5! Great back patio and secure parking!

Welcome to Casita Del Sol! This sunny and bright two bedroom / one bath house located in one of Austin's premier neighborhoods, and most proud zip codes (78704!). The crown jewel of this house is the wooden back deck and patio area! We know how much vacationers like to hang out in a pleasant and private outdoor setting, and this is exactly that!

The bedroom configuration is perfect for families, or two couples looking for a little more space. One bedroom has a queen euro-top mattress, and the other has two twin beds.

Starting at $169/night, this property is going to be very competitive in the 'stand-alone' vacation home market! You don't have to deal with owners, or hardly even neighbors! When you arrive, this house is all yours. We provide a coffee basket for you with organic beans, grinder, creamer, sugars and even some tea for you non-coffee drinking folks.

This house features cable TV and WIFI, all linens and towels included and the pack patio has a propane grill which we provide as well.

*Some items are subject to change so if you have specific questions or requirements please let us know!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were delighted with the location of the house in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The house had everything we needed for a short stay. The rental agents were helpful and answered all our questions. They emailed all the information we needed to check into the house and settle in.

Cute and Homey

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed how this cute and cozy home made us feel "right at home". Of course we loved the comfortable beds, the fenced in yard (for Ole, the dog), having a washer/dryer, the openness between kitchen and living area, BUT what really impressed us, was the thought that went into making this rental a true "home away from home". The kitchen not only had the largest amount of cookware, utensils, bowls, and dish ware, that we have ever had in a rental, but it also had coffee & filters, condiments, seasonings and oils for cooking. We had laundry detergent and dryer sheets, the bathroom had shampoo, conditioner and soap (and not the cheap stuff, either).

We truly enjoyed our stay here. The home was spotless when we arrived, and we were contacted soon after arriving, to make sure everything was okay. The location was perfect to try out the neighborhood food trucks, and local eateries. We enjoyed exploring on foot (South Congress), and was a short drive to Zilker Park and downtown Austin. Would we want to stay here again? Absolutely! Thanks for making us feel right at home!

Great home base in Austin

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at La Casita during our trip to Austin. The neighborhood is fun and funky, and the house was just as pictured. It was very clean and comfortable, had all the amenities that we needed, and offered enough room for our family of four. It's within walking distance to many tasty places (including a superb coffee bar, Once Over, that we visited over and over), and just a short drive from downtown. Jay was very helpful and made the whole process very easy. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Lovely Accommodation in Austin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casita del Sol for three months over the summer and were very happy with our experience. The house was nicely decorated. The kitchen was one of the best equipped we have seen yet (and we have used many vacation home rentals). The large fenced in yard was great for our dogs, and felt very private. And the location was just perfect, it was so close to downtown, South Congress as well as Barton Springs, with easy bus transport to town. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful.

The manager responded to any queries extremely promptly, and was friendly and informative about the attractions nearby.

perfect, adorable house in Austin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I escaped to Texas for a break from the crippling Kansas cold with our three small children (ages 3, 3, and 9 months). This house was perfect for us. Close to downtown and excellent restaurants in South Austin, with a great fenced backyard where our kids could play. Had to do some minimal babyproofing (more to protect the house than our children), but we had a fabulous time. So relaxing and low key with all of the amenities of home. Would definitely stay again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My parents had originally booked an airbnb at a different place nearby, however when they arrived we realized we were locked out. The owner of this airbnb place was out of town and felt horrible - she was somehow was able to book my parents to stay at Casita del Sol, and WOW, what a blessing in disguise. My parents LOVED this place. It's location is unbeatable, a short walk away from Bouldin Creek cafe where we had breakfast every morning. The place was very clean and very nicely decorated. My dad loved the Austin-guide book, and as an Austin resident myself, I can say the guide book was very thorough and spot on. The customer service for this place was amazing. My mother even called the rental owners late at night because she couldn't figure out the tv remote and the owner was incredibly polite and responsive - they got it figured out immediately. To top it all off, my parents came 'home' one day to a bottle of wine on their table - a gift from the rental owners. We could not stop raving about this place all weekend. The people behind this place really understand the value of customer service. Stay here - you will not be disappointed!
