You can sightsee, or just hang out on a raft in the pool, or swing in the hammock, listening to the music of the fountain. Read, rest, watch birds and squirrels at the feeders, soak in the hot tubs, or have a glass of wine overlooking the lake, or by the fire pit... Get a massage, grill a steak, or eat out at a fabulous array of new and old restaurants in the Austin area. The owners will be happy to recommend!

Charming B&B

4.2 on March 13, 2018

Was a nice quiet and clean place to stay. Owner was very helpful and friendly. Would stay with them again.

Very secluded and quiet. This is basically a self service B&B-they provide the items (continental) in your room and you take it from there. Coffee maker takes forever to brew a pot - a Keurig would have been much more appreciated. We frequently stay in B&B's and this was a little disappointing. Stayed 2 nights and never interacted with the innkeepers.

Great getaway

We were looking for a quiet getaway and the Moonlight Cottage was perfect! We will return!

Casa Del Sol was the very first and probably the only Bed and Breakfast I ever want to stay at! The host Cata and Doug, oh and Muffin are the sweetest ever. The moment you enter the gates of Casa Del Sol; no better yet the moment you turn into the street you immediately feel at peace, my husband and I felt so at peace and inlove with not just the place but the entire vibe of it just makes you appreciate it all around. We will definitely be going back! My favorite place ever. Thank you guys so much for an amazing time. - Vivian Chau Molina

The Perfect Getaway

5 on March 02, 2018

It rained every day and night of our recent extended weekend vacation, but it didn’t bother us one bit. The entire campus is hand groomed, hand planted and hand picked to perfection. The room was cozy, comfortable and clean. The views (when available) were spectacular. And... the private hot tub saved the weekend. We must have got in and out no less than a dozen times. FIVE STARS!!! The proximity to Austin and the surrounding area makes this one of the coolest spots we’ve stayed recently. We will definitely be returning when possible.

Perfect Valentines Day

The room was perfect and the flowers and champagne were spot on. We had a wonderful time, very romantic.

Cute and quaint

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Moonlight Suite at Casa del Sol. It was a great experience. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The room was equipped with a small kitchenette that was perfect for what we needed. The view is amazing of the lake and you can see it from laying in bed. The best part was the hot tub! It was very chilly when we went and we used the hot tub to our advantage. Gracious host and lovely place all around! We will definitely stay again!

Definitely will be coming back!

It was a perfect getaway to celebrate my significant other’s Birthday! We had a good time and very much enjoyed the quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Can’t wait to plan another trip to Casa Del Sol later in the future (:

Tranquil retreat just outside of Austin

5 on January 12, 2018

My husband and I stayed at Casa del Sol the weekend we got married and again recently to celebrate our one year anniversary. The Moonlight Suite is magical, with a beautiful view of Lake Travis. With all the trees we felt like we were in a luxurious tree house. The private hot tub is a wonderful and romantic addition. A year ago, for our wedding weekend, they let us check-in a day early so that my husband could drop a car off; at that point the owners asked if he'd like them to set up the room with rose petals (they also set up a bottle of champagne he brought with him). The room is complete with a mini-kichenette with microwave, coffee maker, and mini-fridge which they stock with orange juice, milk, half and half, and yogurt. We love this place and plan to return in the future to check out the other rooms!

A Beautiful Gift

4.8 on January 11, 2018

My family was coming from Florida to visit for Christmas, but we have a small home and didn't believe it would be comfortable for my parents to stay with us for an entire week. They had celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary the year before, but were not able to do anything special for it. My husband and I found Casa del Sol B&B when searching for a nearby place for them to stay. When I came across Casa del Sol's website, I was so excited to see such a peaceful and beautiful setting that was close enough for my parents to travel to and from our home. My Mom and Dad loved The Garden Room, as well as the entire property! It allowed them privacy, time to relax at the end of the day and enjoy their time here in the most comfortable and beautiful way. They both said it was beyond their wildest expectations, and we are so thrilled to know Casa del Sol is so close for future out of town guests! We even plan to stay here one day in the Airstream! Before my parent's arrival, Cata gave me a full tour of the entire property and all of the rooms. They have done an amazing job in making this a very special place with an Austin vibe. I highly recommend this B&B for those wanting to be away from the hustle & bustle of the busy city and close to beautiful Lake Travis.
