Our 2 moms & 2 dots (twenty something daughters) had a fabulous reunion at Casa K. The Studio Azul was better than we expected. Arrived at dusk and our great space was prepped for our arrival, with glowing lamps and neon. The "barn door" window was open, letting in fresh perfect-weather-air. The bathroom was a hoot with colorful tile and repurposed materials. The wall didn't reach the high ceiling which could bother some, who love their privacy. But we were in the slumber party mode... no issue for us.
We walked down the lit up stone stairway to the yard area with chairs, fire pit and stone oven. Just amazing to find ourselves surrounded by towering trees and "jungle", tucked into a quiet neighborhood...with all the fun and activity just a few minutes away.
If only we'd had more than 2 nights and we hadn't been racing around Austin, hitting cafes, bars, art exhibits and shops... we could have made so much better use of the cozy space. Having 3 beds and 2 couches to lounge on while we talked into the night was ideal for us. The fun colors and art and great windows (showing trees) made the atmosphere just plain fun.
The temps were ideal so we needed no a.c. or heat. We ate out, so didn't used the kitchen area. No other guests staying, so all was quiet for us. Our hosts didn't intrude, but let us know they were next door if needed. Loved having a code and no key. (Codes are changed)
Great stay! Just too short!

- 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 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.
