Great Time without the city!

let me start by saying that this place made me realize that most hotels are really not in the business of providing comfort or relaxation. Casa Del Sol was a most relaxing destination and made us forget all of our troubles. The service is great and Doug made sure that if we needed anything he was available. We rented both rooms and we were very satisfied with the level of comfort and decor. The entire property was clean and well kept. The rooms are decorated with a kitschy southwest feel (Sol is the focus) and the beds are really comfortable. The kitchen areas while a little small were very useful and the smaller unit had a full size refrigerator. this combined with the BBQ in the back yard and the comfort level gets even higher! The grounds are open and green with a fire pit and a fountain that will put you to sleep with its mellow sounds. The Jacuzzi was great and we used it every day of our stay (4 nights). The house dog Muffin was really well behaved and was not the way at any time. All in all a great place to stay and we will definitely be coming back again this year. If you like staying in hotels and you like the impersonal nature of those establishments this place is not for you. If you want to get away and enjoy yourself without any worries then this place is for you!


Our new favortie!

This is my fiancé and my new favorite getaway spot! Not only because he proposed to me at this romantic little B&B, but because it is the perfect place to relax for the weekend! The rooms are clean and cozy and their quirkiness is charming! The owners provide great service without being ever-present, giving you plenty of time for privacy out by the pool, on your porch, lounging in one of many comfy spots, or enjoying the view! We will be back at least once a year!

We had an amazing evening and morning here. Beautiful property. Beautiful view. Eateries are everywhere. Fresh fruit and pastries for breakfast. The pecan roll was the best I've had. Can't wait to revisit!!

Got married just down the road at Lake Travis and it was just a few minutes away after we left our wedding. Doug and Cata were awesome. Place looked amazing, all the pics cannot really show you this amazing little place. My wife (originally from Austin) said this was typical Austin and was thankful I found this cozy gem. It was perfect spot for us to tour the Hill Country wineries and enjoy a bottle of Cabernet in the hot tub underneath a blanket of Texas stars. Cannot wait to come back and celebrate an anniversary at Casa Del Sol!

This property and suite was the most private and relaxing places we have stayed. We enjoyed every second! Romantic but also very suited for a man as well. I talked my hubby into a gorgeous leather sofa like theirs for our home; the front blew in and we snuggled in on theirs for a movie and appreciating the real wood fire. The suite allowed us to spend most of our time enjoying the property. The hot tub under the stars, with beautiful views of the lake and lights sealed the deal. The pool was perfect for larger groups as well. There was plenty of spots to lounge, even an outdoor shower. We thought it would be possible to have an intimate wedding there. We thought we might have used a microwave but they had plenty of beautiful dishes to eat in meals there. They had real wine glasses for sitting in front of the fire and watching a movie. We express appreciation to the owners for accommodating us at the last minute; it was a perfect place for recharging !
