We really enjoyed our week at the casita. The location is perfect and convenient to everything. Gisela was a very attentive host especially with the extra requests we made. We would highly recommend it.
This was the second time my parents stayed at the Casita and it was just as terrific as the first. Gisela is so friendly and the house is comfortable and neat as a pin. Everything was fantastic - thank you!
The accommodations were very clean and beautiful. The location was convenient to downtown as well as to freeways. Quiet neighborhood.
Gisela was welcoming and helpful. She was very kind and flexible - she allowed us to hang out in apt until we left for airport at 3pm.
Gisela was a great host. She met me to show me around the house and give me the key and had a few print outs for restaurants in the area.
The beds are very comfortable with high-quality sheets. I love the pebble floor in the shower.
The whole house is cozy and was perfect for my friend and I to use as a base for our mini vacation.
There are lots of cool things about a mile walk away and it's safe to walk in the aera.
Be sure to check out Bouldin Creek Cafe for a terrific breakfast, Thai Fresh for great vegan and gluten-free ice cream (try the Thai tea) and baked goods. They are on Hether but about 1 mile from the casita.
My South Congress favs: Snack Bar Austin is great for dinner or just a snack and Guero’s Taco Bar has the best salsa verde and tacos. It was about a $7 Uber ride back to the Casita.
Was just in Austin for a couple days, but my stay was great. She was a great host and the place was amazing. Will definitely stay here again when I am back.
My host was wonderful. The location and description were accurate and I had a wonderful trip to Austin. A++++++++++++ for the Casita!
Comfortable, tasteful, and spotlessly clean. The living room is on the small side and very basic, but the bedrooms are nice size and the kitchen is well sized for eat-in. Neighborhood is gorgeous with lots of great eating spots. There is a martial arts class, 2X a week, held on the floor above the Casita but class is late morning and late afternoon, so no issue with noise - and there wasn't much noise anyway. Loved the basket of toiletries- nice touch of luxury. Gisele was a wonderful hostess. Overall a really great place.
