Why Chris and Misty Marmolejo chose South Austin

Our Motto: Relax and Enjoy!

We have included a private deck with our cabin so that you can enjoy a morning cup of joe or an evening adult beverage of choice! The in ground swimming pool provides for a refreshing and cool swim and the overlook is something to enjoy for watching an evening sunset or stargazing. We've created the space for you to truly get away, relax and enjoy!

What makes this cabin unique

You get the best of both worlds by being within 20 minutes to downtown Austin and within 5-10 minutes to Hill Country Wineries, Brewery's and live entertainment at the Nutty Brown Cafe. You will enjoy this property because it is absolutely quiet and relaxing out in Hill Country.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Arrived to a very warm and welcomed Texas feel! A set of deer greeted us just outside the property. We walked into a comfortably cool setting. The AC was on and the unit was stocked with towels and linens. Everyone enjoyed the amenities of the gazebo & pool (with a pool room) and all slept soundly by night! Highly recommend this charming locale! Definitely a Five star stay!"

Quiet, clean and relaxing. Exactly what was needed after a long travel.

  • 5 of 5

A previous reservation I had for a stay cancelled on me at the last minute. I was driving from Minnesota on my way to Texas and Chris and Misty responded quickly and were very accommodating. After navigating the nightmare traffic in Austin the location was more than I could have expected. It was quiet refuge from the hustle and bustle and the grounds were beautifully lit with lights and the pool area was a big bonus. The cabins are spaced out enough to provide privacy and since I was traveling with a dog, I really appreciated that each cabin had its own small fenced in area. The cabin itself was well designed, had plenty of light and was very comfortable. It really beats staying at a pricey hotel and you get so much more. I asked to extend my stay by a day and Chris and Misty were able to accommodate that request. I was looking for a simple place to stay while in Austin and got a relaxing retreat instead. Thanks!

Clean /Quiet Away from it all.

Nice place to visit makes you feel like you are away from it all but really only few mins away to major stores. Our family loved it we enjoyed the stars hearing the crickets and no electronics. Great place to sit. back and recharge.

Cabin was clean and comfortable with a perfect little kitchen for cooking our own meals! Pool area was perfect for our little family! We will definitely consider staying here again next time we are in the area!

So close, yet so far

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in the cabin. Due to some last minute changes, we were desperately needing a place to spend our anniversary. Luckily, we found this wonderful pet-friendly cabin close to Austin. The property was beautiful and seemed very remote even though it was so close to shops and restaurants. The privacy fence around the cabin was a huge bonus. I only wish it was a little warmer outside so I could have used the pool. Overall, we had a nice stay in a comfortable cabin with our 2 dogs.

Owner's Response: Hi Cassandra, Thank you so much for the review. As dog owners ourselves we thought the fenced area would be such a convenience for people travelling with a pet. Glad to hear you liked it. Thanks again and come back and enjoy the pool! Sincerely, Misty and Chris

The place was charming & clean, but not comfortable. We paid for 2 nights, but only stayed one. Mattress was too soft for a bad back. Something you might want to think about if you have back issues. We didn't think about it because we never had a problem when staying at hotels.

Owner's Response: We were sorry to hear this about the discomfort. The mattress is a high quality brand and almost new as our cabin is less than a year new. We know that everyone has their own personal preference in something like this, but again are sorry to hear that it was not comfortable to you.

Almost like a Tiny House....Grounds need some work

  • 4 of 5

5 Stars for the cabin: It was cute, cozy and very clean. The kitchen had what we needed to prepare breakfast each day. The bed was comfortable and the living room/kitchen were as well. We didn't get exactly the cabin in the picture and would have preferred one with the fenced-in area since I had my dogs with me.

2 Stars for the grounds: The property is definitely a work in progress. You can see the potential for a very lovely, relaxing area, but it's not there yet. I did not appreciate all the tools and building materials strewn about. And the uneven walkways are a twisted ankle waiting to happen. It was also VERY dark on the property at night which made letting the dogs out a little uneasy.

Reservations were easy and questions were answered quickly. Convenient location to Dripping Springs, Wemberley or Austin. I would stay here again after the yard makeover is complete.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you review. It is greatly appreciated. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your cabin. We agree with your comment about the dogs and the fence in that our cabin with the fence is much more accommodating with pets; however at this time we only have the 1 cabin with the fence and it does book quite often with the fenced yard and because it is the only one that we have that sleeps 6 ppl. We would have definitely loved to host you in that cabin, had it been available. Let us know when you travel our way again and we will be sure to accommodate all of your requests. We can understand your thoughts on the driveway...after the big recent storm and flooding that happened prior to your arrive, it did cause some issues in the driveway that have since been addressed and repaired. We hope you will come back and enjoy a stay with us again as we are continuously working on the improvement of the property to make it better all the time. Sincerely, Misty and Chris

While enjoying your stay, we highly recommend the Nutty Brown Café and the Salt Lick BBQ. Both have great food and entertainment. We also recommend taking advantage of the many wineries, breweries and vodka distilleries...there are so many within a 10 mile radius of our location.
