About Robin

We designed and built this house for family closeness and entertaining friends. We've raised our boys in this home and on this property. They graduated Dripping Springs High School and now attend UT Austin and UT San Antonio. Now that they are not home full time, we wanted to share the place with others and earn some extra income.

Why Robin chose Dripping Springs

My husband bought this amazing property right out of college and we decided to build when we started our family. Owned by an artist and engineer, the place is unique and beautifully decorated for a homey and casual feel. The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining and family gatherings. It's private, peaceful and comfortable.

What makes this house unique

Our home has so many unique qualities not found in most rental properties, from the panoramic views, privacy, custom artwork and stained glass windows, decorating and landscaping. We live in the hub of hill country outdoor activities, including hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, swimming, Hamilton Pool Preserve, Westcave Preserve, Reimers Ranch Park, wineries and wedding venues.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our annual family get together. The kitchen was well stocked. The place was so peaceful/relaxing and the views are spectacular.

We never left the to go anywhere, because everyone was enjoying the wonderful swimming pool.

Over the last 5 years we have stayed at several places in the hill country, using VRBO, and this place was definitely by far the best.

A Real Hoot!!

  • 5 of 5

They have an Owl Cam, I mean, how awesome is that! This place was so cool and perfect for a family get together. We booked for close family during our wedding week in Austin then had a small BBQ the day after. Everything you need is here. Beach towels, floaties, night yard lighting, surround sound, speakers throughout the home, really cool loft for the kids, spices, nice cooking utensils, well kept rooms with cozy decor. If you’re lucky, there might be a baby owl around to watch through the owl cam!

Robin gave us a detailed tour with thoughtful instruction on how to operate all the features.

Remember to only pack your swimsuit because that’s all you’ll be doing the entire time you’re here! It’s awesome.

Thanks, Robin! We’ll be back!

What a wonderful experience! Beautiful home, awesome vista!

  • 5 of 5

This truly was a cozy, comfortable home to have a rehearsal dinner for our son and new daughter-in-law! The layout is ideal for multiple guests, very accommodating and the ambiance is over the top with the pool, great lighting and, of course, spectacular views of the Texas Hill Country! We could not have wishes for more! The beds were awesome and we felt very comfortable with all the amenities! Thanks to the owners that are so very gracious and willing to assist, providing information for local restaurants, shopping and wineries, for your visit! Truly a successful event! We will visit again! ❤️❤️❤️ Truly magnificent art!

Beautiful property, stunning views of hill country, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Robin could not have been better hosts. When we first arrived at the property, they took great care to show us how to take advantage of all the amenities - from the pool to the hot tub to the grill and everything in between. The home was gorgeous - inside and out - truly a special place.

A wonderful get a way!!

  • 5 of 5

Went her for my daughter's bachelorette party. It was just perfect. The view was beautiful and the back porch was my favorite! The weather was not great so we did not get to use the pool and did not get walk the property to visit the spring feed pond. Robin and Tom made you feel very welcome. The house had everything you need including spices for cooking. Plenty of room for everyone. We were not expecting the spiral stair case, but it worked out perfectly. Very convent for wine tasting, and many other activities in the area, but the best for just relaxing. Loved everything about our visit and would love to go back.
