My advice, DON`T DO IT!!
Just please make sure you understand what you are getting, you will be in PART of a house. The part next to you may include lots of yelling and shattering of glasses. It`s not private, it`s near a busy road. The room itself was nice, but there was supposed to be a binder to get internet. It didn`t exist. I was given a bogus internet password of 0123456789. No internet, no phone service, and I`m there alone with my 10 year old daughter who was terrified. We had to sneak out in our pajamas at night and go find a hotel. Vicki offered to remedy the situation but my daughter begged not to go back. This was supposed to be a special trip for her and it became so stressful. Of course no refund. So my advice is know what you are getting before you spend your hard earned money that will never be returned!
The perfect spot for a girls retreat
We were lucky enough to find this nice cottage in The Hill Country in the sourrounded by trees and nature.
For a while my friends and I were looking for a secluded place were to stay for a women's retreat and we were so pleased to have found this one.
Even though it only has one bathroom, it has 3 nice bedrooms, 2 living areas, a decent kitchen but above all it has an outside Bistro where we were able to talk and drink coffe watching the goats, horses and donkeys roam freely.
We will come back again for our next retreat.}
My family and I spent New Years week in this colorful cozy cottage... which was transformed many years ago into a lovely home overlooking the horse pastures on one side nestled in a little canyon with woods on the other side and with our own private "Bistro" (French outdoor cafe restaurant) complete with little wrought iron little round tables and chairs in different shades of lilac and purple with a beautiful view and the horses come right up to the windows to say hi - it was a real unique experience which we will never forget; the smell of pancakes cooking in the old timy kitchen, the kids laughing and playing with the baby goats Marie Jane our littlest riding Bella the pony, sunset horseback riding and then all gathered around a bon fire roasting marshmallows and telling scary stories... I could go on and on at the wonderful time these great folks at this funky ranch helped us have.
But you just have to find out for yourself, all you need is to pack a good sense of adventure, swim suite and a pair of jeans, talk to Micky and Vicky and they can help you plan a perfect vacation like they helped us, we can’t wait to go back!!
Most Memorable Valentine Weekend!
Five minutes east of Boerne, TX, nestled in the hill country, our 30 Acre Ranch B&B getaway. At first my wife and I did not know what to make of the property as it was a little rough around the edges, with restoration / remodeling, and a little TLC being needed here and there, still we were away from the hustle and bustle of the big city of Houston. Once we settled in, we finally met with our main host “Vicky”, and what was to be a heart welcoming reception, which exceeded our expectations as she continued to woo us throughout our stay, as did her husband Mickey and father in law Abel. Note: thank you Vicky for working up the surprise I requested upon our arrival for my wife (Yellow Roses and Chocolate covered Strawberries).
We settled into our cottage, which was quaint and cozy; just what my wife and I needed, some alone time. Upon our daily awakening, we walked the beautiful property, feeding their horses, goats, and donkeys as they warmed up to us. This was only to be followed up by an amazing breakfast; freshly made pastry and a Texas size country breakfast (food just kept on coming). The meals and presentation was amazing (Vicky is a Chef from Cordon Blue in France), which was complemented by their continued hospitality and attention to detail (Note: my wife and I hold genuine hospitality to the highest standards, which they exceeded). We then transferred to the barn house for our final 2 nights (remodeled to be the addition to their existing properties on the ranch, which included a newly added bistro). Again, their hospitality continued to supersede our expectation by the attention to catering provided by this most welcoming family. To top things off, our host also prepared and cooked for us on Valentines evening (4 course meal: seafood for my wife and beef & pork for me; dinner under the stars). The setting and the food was most excellent – food just kept coming and our stomachs got bigger as we faded into the night. Overall it will be hard to outdo the amount of attention given by this family and their B&B. Thank you Vicky, Mickey, and Abel for making this our most memorable valentine’s day to date.
PS. Thank you Abel for serenading us over our last day of breakfast and guitar lessons you shared with me.
Our hosts both came across as very inviting and accommodating; and, were upgraded to a cabin due to a fortunate cancellation on the part of another guest. While unable to have a chance to try Viky's cooking, we do hope to return and do so the next time around. My girlfriend and I were both very pleased with our stay and sincerely look forward to doing so once more.
Not overly Impressed
Booking, went well, spoke to Vicky about all accommodations prior to visit. Since there were 3 of us, she said there was some sort of loft that our daughter could sleep in and we would still have plenty of room. Then day before leaving, I get a call, Vicky is saying that there was a double booking and says that they will upgrade us to the Honeymoon Suite, no charge.
Arriving, was ok, we were tired from driving 7+hrs. We were met by Micky, who walked us around showing us the rest of the property. We never saw Vicky once during our stay, which is fine but that is the only person i spoke to prior to arriving. No key to the room was ever given to us (didnt bother us too much, just felt weird that it wasnt even asked if we would like one.)
The property was nice, wilderness, animals around all over property, goats, horses, donkeys, dog. My husband loved waking up the hill and watching all the deer.
The suite was not all it was talked up to be. It was a room, bathroom, and shared kitchen with the neighbor room, which happened to have someone living there. They had brought in another bed for my daughter, which made the room too small. The biggest thing talked up in the suite was the jetted bathtub. Well when we went to take a bath from a long day of vaca fun. It was not relaxing at all ... the water smelt terrible, like rotten eggs, i know it was just cause of it being well/septic but holy cannoli it stunk to high heaven! Morning came, the neighbor had coffee made, felt bad drinking her coffee but we needed our coffee so we did, and made more. She poured it out! The neighbors dog woke us up 2 mornings. After long days we were going to bed around 10p and other guest were up on deck visiting loudly.
This being the first time using VRBO, I was not Impressed.
A month after vaca, I had to email and ask about my deposit that was never refunded. It has been refunded now.
While there we went to San Antonio, SeaWorld, and drove 3hrs to Padre Island. It was a nice drive to and from each day. One night we stopped in Boerne, TX to have dinner, and the town was having a Movie night on the court house lawn. It was a very nice comfortable night!
Thank you for reviewing us – we are pleased your booking went well, your arrival went ok and you all felt “the property was nice”, you liked the “wilderness” (the ranch), and enjoyed our animals around the property (goats, horses, donkeys & our dog), as well as loved watching all the deer, and it was a good central spot for all your vacationing.
We are surprised you express any confusion about the 2 different accommodations we offered. Yes, I did offer a lovely mid-sized stand-alone cabin with 1 bedroom for you + a little loft with bed for your daughter & plenty of room, with a big kitchen, living/dining room, deck with picnic table, screened in porch, etc., which rents for $140/night + tax, as it would be the best fit for your family. However you all chose to rent 1 room which is more economical in the Cozy Cottage That is where you rented and where you are posing your review right now. There could be no confusion what you were renting since in the description is clearly states: “rent 1 room for $100 or entire house for $250 (3 rooms)”. You paid $100/night TOTAL. When I offered to upgrade you to the Honeymoon Suite at no charge, I said it was a larger room (which it is), with a 60” High Definition TV, private bath and Jacuzzi tub (which it has) and you would only share the kitchen with 1 lady (which you did), and gave you the VRBO listing so you could read about it and see the 20 pictures. I remember how very pleased you were when you accepted and thanked me.
We’re also surprised you expressed any dissatisfaction, since when my husband Micky showed you your accommodations, you all said you were pleased, that they were very pretty and thanked him. BTW, Micky did leave your key in your room by your door.
So sorry to hear you were disappointed to not meet me, as I was here the entire time on-property cooking and tending to guests. See, when we have several check-ins at the same time, we both handle them so no one waits and who checks each guest in just depends on who gets free. If you had told Micky or even called at any time, I would have gladly come share some time with you or resolve any concern.
As to the water, that’s intriguing as well. We are on a well system and the water does have minerals – but no different than anyone else in the Hill Country. We have a double filtration system on our wells, purified with potassium instead of salt, for best water quality. We had 35 guests + family that weekend, and no one said anything about issues with the w
