Why Morrie Schulman and Rachel Gunner chose Long Branch Valley
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, 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.

Perfect for a family get-together
Each of three sisters could have her own room. We had a fully stocked kitchen to allow us to bake and frost a huge wedding cake for our niece....and a lovely pool to relax in between layers! I'd chosen the property because of all these factors, and also that it was not far from the wedding venue. Morrie couldn't have been more responsive and helpful!
I reserved Casa Mora as a birthday retreat for my beautiful wife. I didn't know that we would both be so spoiled. From the first moment we arrived, we were filled with a sense of peace and serenity. The home is spectacular in all of the right ways. The tile work is amazing, the artwork is eclectic and draws you in. Everywhere you look, another intriguing surprise is there for the senses. The layout of the home brings all of the beauty from outside to the inside. We so very much enjoyed every lovely minute that we spent in and near the swimming pool. It was a joy to have the peace and the ultimate privacy which allowed us to relax, decompress, and to embrace the time that we shared in such a heavenly setting. We want to express our sincere appreciation and our feeling of great luck to have been able to spend time at Morrie's and Rachel's little slice of paradise. If the stars align, we will return sooner than later. Dave and Cheryl Freeman
Great relaxing weekend
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Casa Mora. It was so quiet and peaceful. Short drive to go into Austin and surrounding areas. The pool was a plus. My kinds enjoyed playing in the pool in the evening after a long day of hiking.
Oasis in the Woods
Morrie's place was more than we expected. We had planned to use it as a jump off for other Hill Country excursions, and never left the property! The pool was fantastic and we enjoyed dinner outside every night. I especially enjoyed having my morning coffee by the pool watching the birds feed. We did venture out to a local brewery and for Salt Link BBQ which is a short drive.
Morrie was extremely responsive to our questions and the house had everything that you think you might need, including a game room were were played ping pong daily. Thank you Morrie! We look forward to the next time!
Relaxing Girls' Weekend
Everything was beautiful! I rented this property for a girls' weekend with college friends who just wanted to sit by a pool, drink wine, and catch up. It was perfect. The rooms were comfortable and the pool was gorgeous. We had a wonderful weekend. Thanks Morrie and Rachel!
Great house and pool in the texas hill country! Loaded with supplies and everything you need to stay on property for the entire duration of trip. Secluded and peaceful yet close to amenities. My boys loved the pool and the firepit where they made smores. Highly recommend this home if you are looking for some peace in the texas hill country.
