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.

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.

What a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and need a place that accommodates a large group, this is the place to stay. I can’t say enough good things about my family’s stay at Robin and Tom’s home. Robin greeted us upon arrival and gave us a tour of the property and how everything worked. She even brought out all the pool toys when I told her my three-year old grandsons were coming. She welcomed us to use any DVD or CD in her collection. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking which my sisters and I enjoy doing. It was so peaceful and relaxing. There was plenty of seating for everyone inside and out. The only negative for us was that the fifth bedroom was accessible via a spiral staircase. We’re not as young and agile as we used to be. I would definitely recommend this place.

Just what we were hoping for.

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful get away from the city. Across a few Rivers, beyond the wineries and with easy directions, you are finally there. The owners clearly put their heart and soul in this house. Really have everything you need. The pool and hot tub are amazing with an expansive view.

The property was beautiful. The entire house was amazing along with the property.

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my sons wedding. We stayed Thurs thru Sunday. It was a 30 min drive from the property to Memory Lane, but it was a beautiful drive and not a problem for us at all. The house was beautiful and spacious, with the hot tub, fire pit and bar-b-que pit for our use. We used all but the pool and swimming hole while there. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone. We will be going back this summer to enjoy all of the amenities and the wineries.
