Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

This rare, one-of-a-kind Casita is tucked away in a grove of trees on 6 acres in the Texas Hill Country between Austin (25 minutes to downtown) and Dripping Springs (10 minutes away). We live on the property, but you can be assured that the casita feels secluded and private. It was designed and built by a talented craftsman with high attention to detail, design and comfort. The architecture and design is a mix of modern, Asian, Texas farmhouse, and a bit of Kentucky church house ☺.

The overall feel is cozy and spacious, luxurious and comfortable. The #1 comment when visitors experience our place is the wonderful natural light that fills every room with its wall-to-wall French doors and large windows. There are vaulted ceilings, pecan wood flooring & custom cabinetry through-out. Designed with imported vintage rugs and a fine art collection of painting and photography make the space inviting. Furnishings of ornate antique imports, simple rustic and mid-century modern make for an eclectic environment.

The living room has a comfortable couch and wall inset 40” HDTV with cable. There is a nice stereo with CD and DVD player. We can make the couch out as a bed if needed to accommodate a third person.

The bedroom is very romantic with a comfortable queen sized bed and organic cotton sheets that overlook the countryside from private French doors to the porch. From the bedroom doors there is direct access to a hot tub spa under the oak trees. If you have a third person, we have a very comfortable couch in the living room. There is a walk-in closet with shelving and hanging space for your convenience. We will provide robes for you.

The bathroom shower is glass tiled with a door inside the shower to the outdoors so you can have an indoor/outdoor shower experience on a nice day or evening. The bath countertops are marble. You will be bathing with filtered rain-water.

The porch is the full length of the house and overlooks a large field of trees and wild grass. This is the perfect spot to watch the sunset, bird watch, and star gaze. There is a nice gas grill and an outdoor fire-pit (can only be used when the county burn ban is not in force).

This is a perfect place if you want a peaceful getaway, but don’t want to be too far from Austin or Dripping Springs or many other central Texas Hill Country locations. It is close to area wineries, distilleries, breweries, wedding venues and outdoor exploring. This is a great retreat for writing, reading, cooking, bird watching or simply enjoying country living. Want a day in the city? You are only 20 minutes away. Want a day to get away from the city? This place is it. Or, you can have both!

Can't say enough good things about this very tranquil and scenic property. The house is even better than the pictures depict. The owners were fantastic and extremely helpful.

Amazing cozy casita

  • 5 of 5

Although we only got to spend a short time at the casita, we found the casita to be an amazingly cozy place that draws you in and makes you feel relaxed. The little details that Andrea and Mike put in make you feel very welcome and taken care of with everything you need available.We had a great experience visiting local breweries and nature and hope to repeat the experience soon. Thank you so much for sharing your pkace with us!

Enchanting, peaceful, tranquil, private, breath of fresh air!

  • 5 of 5

The home is aesthetically beautiful from the architecture to the plants to interesting books. The wildlife alone makes a unique experience from the moment you wake up. The materials used in the home and decor lend itself to the comforts of an artists eye. Much forthought was put into the experience with the shower door leading to the hot tub. If Privacy is what you want it is what you will get in your own little hideaway, this Casita is a little gem! I definitely will be back for years to come !

A beautifully appointed casita, very peaceful and lovely. We were in Dripping Springs for our grand daughter's wedding so didn't spend as much time as we would have liked but found everything offered just great. Loved the porch with birds and squirrels feeding. Also loved the many windows bringing the outdoors in.
