My buddy and I stayed in the Casita Roja and were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance of the cottage and surrounds. Lots of birds and trees and stuff, with gorgeous landscaping and patio areas. The rooms are decorated very tastefully and all amenities in full working order, the reverse cycle a/c a must in Austin. I'd go out on a limb and say it's possibly the best value accommodation this side of the Colorado. It's actually situated in Travis Heights not South Congress - it's probably 15 minutes walk there so not too far - and the neighborhood is affluent residential and certainly not a party place. The owners were fantastic communicators and gave us plenty of space and we also enjoyed the visits from the resident doggies. You'd be pretty hard pressed to find something negative to say about Casa Kenwood I'd imagine and it will certainly adds colour to your trip to Austin.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Kenwood Guesthouses are one treehouse cabin (Casita Roja) and one cool "artist's" loft (Studio Azul) in the neighborhood of Travis Heights in Austin, Texas. We're not a hotel, not a bed and breakfast, and not a traditional vacation rental... We live on-site and we have two cool guesthouses and a great outdoor property that we are excited to share with travelers to Austin who are longing to discover a hint of that something special that makes Austin "weird." Visit Austin and still feel like you're home, not in a run-of-the-mill vanilla box! We're colorfully laid-back, we're artsy, we're pet friendly. There's a link to our website on this listing. ... more less
