Austin Lake Estates chateau / country house description

La Casita (the "little house") is a separate guest house on 3+ acres of property in the hills of West Austin. Enjoy hill country atmosphere, barbeque, pool, and views, while still within a 15 minute drive to downtown! La Casita is brand new and fully equipped, built in Texas ranch style with stained concrete floors and handpainted Mexican tiles. Enjoy your coffee or evening libations on the wide front porch, watching the native deer and roadrunners.

The house has one large bedroom with two queen sized beds (featuring new pillow top mattresses). A large loft area and office can accomodate 2 more on comfortable sleeper couches. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower. The comfortable living area features HDTV and a state of the art sound system and working fireplace, and an open kitchen with breakfast bar, all spilling onto the enormous front porch through a wall of antique french doors. La Casita is fully wired and has HDTV, an IPOD dock, inside and outside music system, and Wi-Fi internet. The kitchen offers a gas range, side-by-side fridge, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, and is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses and basic cooking equipment.

La Casita has a private entrance and parking behind the main house and the owners allow for ultimate privacy in the pool and yard area. Come stay with us when you are in town on business, enjoying the Austin music scene, or exploring central Texas (San Antonio - 1.5 hours, Houston - 2.5 hours, Dallas - 3 hours, Fredricksburg - 1.5 hours, Big Bend - 7 hours).

For larger groups, we can accomodate another 4 - 5 comfortably in our second property just down the road - check out VRBO #385180.
