Great family get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this nice home in Wimberley. Plenty of room for all 11 of us. We, the parent/grandparents opted for the guest house so that our adult children and little grands could stay up later, and this worked out great! Saw lots of jack rabbits and roadrunners. This hilltop is perfect for kite flying and enjoying the breeze. The wrap around porch is great even on hot days because of the breeze, and the hot tub was wonderful for sunsets. Our entire family played in the pool every day. If I could change anything, it would be to have some place to put clothes in the guest house - there is no dresser and no hangers in the closet, so we were digging in our bags every day. This was an awesome place, and we would love to stay here again! Thank you.

Perfect location , beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This place is a great long weekend get away.

The main house has all the amenities , there is a guest house on the side with a kitchenette , it’s own bath. The main house has a wrap around porch which was perfect to enjoy coffee in the morning and sunsets in the afternoon . The kids enjoyed the pool and lots of space to run and play . We are already thinking about our next visit.

Clean but old

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed it. Very secluded and quiet! Only wildlife seen was a jackrabbit. Upstairs shower water would never warm up. It was not cool upstairs either, need more window coverings. We enjoyed the time in the pool but the pool vacuum cleaner needs to run at night not during the day - it was always getting in our way.

ready to visit next year

  • 5 of 5

our grown children are already urging we book for next year! they loved the view, the pool, the short drive to Wimberley and the Blue Hole & Mt. Baldy staircase. Enjoyed the ever-present breeze and wrap-around porch and guest house was a hit, too. the small grandkids liked the swing&slide and seeing the wildlife on the drives (gate to house).

kitchen utensils aplenty but we could not find a can opener. And just a "heads-up", the TV began to post a message (at start up) that the projector lamp was about to fail.

VERY nice four days & nights....thank you, from all of our family's school teachers

This place was great!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the pool and hot tub so much, we did not hit as many of the stops we intended to. There was plenty of room for our large group to spread out. The guest house made it really nice. The constant breeze from being at the top of the hill made it wonderful to be outside all day.

Car: necessary

This property is only 3.5 miles from the Wimberley town square. Wimberley is situated ideally between Austin to the north and San Antonio to the south. Regardless from which direction you arrive, Wimberley is the first place where the terrain markedly changes. The second you arrive in this valley, you instantly realize that you are in the Hill Country. Its location is the essence of the atmosphere that permeates this community. One moment you are driving on a plateau, and suddenly you drop into this beautiful, idyllic little valley where Wimberley is nestled.

Canyon Lake is one of the four premier lakes in Texas. What makes it such a coveted place to enjoy is how it is nestled in the Texas Hill Country, giving it a certain beauty that is all its own. Canyon Lake is only a 30-minute drive from downtown Wimberley.

There are a lot of "must sees" in the area, but here are some of our personal suggestions...

1. Blue Hole is frequently ranked as one of the “10 best Swimming Holes in Texas,” by travel magazines and respected publications like “Texas Monthly,”

2. Jacob’s Well is among the most unique perpetual artesian springs in the world.

3. Wimberley is the Zipline. Participants fasten themselves into a safety harness, complete with protective gear, and the fly 2,600 feet across some of the most beautiful terrain in Texas.

4. Corral Theatre. This unique, small town movie-going experience has been America’s only walk-in, sit-down outdoor movie theatre since 1948. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night during the summer, the Corral offers a slate of first run movies for the entire family.

5. And a long list of vineyards including but not limited to Mandola's Estate Winery, Wimberley Valley Winery, The Bella Vista Ranch, and Driftwood Vineyards.
