CDS amazed us in all of its beautiful details. From its quirky gardens and pool area to the whimsical touches throughout the room, there's no cookie cutter hotel experience here. We spent hours on the back deck enjoying the views. The continental breakfast in room was perfect as it could be enjoyed on our schedule not the kitchen's. The hosts were friendly and have us our privacy, an ideal combination. We'll be back.
Casa del Sol is my favorite getaway and the best kept secret in Texas. It's hard to describe how special the vibe is -- peaceful but not boring, friendly but not intrusive, and just very, very chill. I've stayed there four times, once with my husband and three times by myself, and my husband has also been back by himself for a little solo vacay (well truthfully, he went with our dog--they're very close ;). I love all the rooms, each one is unique and charming without being kitschy, and stocked with everything you need to kick back and relax. My new favorite is the Armadillo, a little airstream that is just snug for one person and a perfect spot to get some reading or writing done. And the gorgeous private deck overlooking the lake with pool and hot tub is just a spectacular place to hang out. It's also very convenient--good restaurants and groceries minutes away, nearby trails to hike, and all the delights of Austin within a 20 minute drive. In short, when we need to get away--this is where we go.
One word: mold. I tried to wipe up the floor after a shower (in a stall about the size of an RV shower) & got black mold from the baseboards. There were things that needed to be fixed, like the shower drain, that kept falling off as we used them. Only 1 burner on the stovetop worked. There were see-through curtains on the the windows in a courtyard that other guests walked right by--nowhere near private enough for us on our honeymoon. Ths location is beautiful. ..if you can see past the room itself.
This was our second stay at this wonderful B and B, and we’re planning on making it an annual tradition. It fulfilled our desire for a quiet, retreat-like setting, surrounded by natural beauty. The room was delightfully decorated and comfortable. The continental breakfast was exactly as promised. Highly recommended.
This is my first solo vacation in 7 years after the sudden passing of my husband. The original B&B I booked cancelled my reservation after going on the market for sale. I started looking on Google and came across Casa del Sol. It looked nice so I took the plunge. Sometimes a higher power is leading you to where you should be. The Lavender suite is soooo beautiful. The property ambiance is truly magical and it's the most peaceful place ever. The special touches such as organic fruit, juice, & dairy, plus homemade granola and pastries are just wonderful! I loved it so much, that I extended my stay a few extra days. I'm coming back for sure!!
My husband and I stayed overnight in the Moonlight Suite and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We felt at home verses a hotel where you have a giant parking lot of cars and find your identical room down a long hallway of doors. At Casa Del Sol we parked right outside our room and our room was big, yet cozy with a comfy king bed, beautiful shower, patio, and private, romantic hot tub. The morning of our departure Cada,the owner, was sweet enough to show us the entire grounds and other rooms first hand for future reference. She also chit chatted with us for a long while which I believe shows her genuine interest in the people who visit. She was a delight to work from booking to good bye. The only thing I would have liked to change is the breakfast. It was not bad by any means just not what we expected. We thought there would be a hot breakfast but instead there was handmade, delicious breakfast pastries, fresh fruit, oatmeal packets, yogurt and granola. ALL GREAT OPTIONS, just not what we expected and also not enough to keep me from not coming back. Our overall experience was wonderful and I would recommend anyone to stay.
I can not begin to rave over the amazing stay. So nice and quiet, beautiful courtyard, the lavender suite was perfect for us. Not only was it close to everything, it still seemed remote and quiet. The room was so spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. Not only did the owners make sure our stay was nice and relaxing, they also made sure the custom birthday cake was in the room for the special occasion. I can not thank Casa del Sol enough for the amazing stay. We will be back in the spring !
We visited for our anniversary and had an amazing time. We had an in room massage from Jamie that was so relaxing. The lavender suite has a living area large enough to set up the couples massage. The rooms feel private enough to enjoy romantic time together. We hope to make this a regular visit! We loved our time here.
The little details are what make this place great! From the nice soaps in the bathroom to the organic orange juice on the continental breakfast, great care has been given to making your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The grounds were lovely and the hot tub was fantastic! Pet friendly, which was a bonus. The neighborhood was quiet and allowed for dog walks. Gorgeous view from the balcony by the pool. There's a hammock on the porch, as well as rocking chairs to relax in. The lovely chandeliers that adorned the grounds added an eclectic artistic touch. Great place to stay if you're going to be out and about in Austin and the surrounding areas. Lots to do, and this retreat is the perfect place to come back to after a full day. Don't skip the pastries at breakfast. They're worth the extra cardio!
It was my second stay, and our first as a couple. The second time around didn't disappoint! We stayed in the Golden Sun Cottage and it was fantastic. It has a small kitchen area which allowed us to stay in and cook, which is a passion of ours. The continental breakfast was perfect- those pastries will haunt my dreams and having real half & half for our coffee was the icing on the cake. (Mmm...that coffee cake...) The grounds are serene and lovely. It rained during our stay and we didn't mind since it gave us an excuse to just sit on the porch in the rocking chairs and take in the lovely view. Our dog was with us and it was so nice to feel that he was just as welcome as we were! The management team was amazing- thank you Doug and Cata! We will definitely be back as soon as possible! (Save us some coffee cake!)
