Hill Country Charmer

Hill Country Charmer

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 28, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Experience the unique pleasure of living in the country for a few days, feeding the deer, watching majestic sunsets, warm sunrises and enjoying black skies full of stars each night. The solitude, yet the co-mingling with nature. Come, get away from the hustle and bustle.

Casita, or little house, is actually about 2100 square feet, all on one level, in the middle of over 10 acres of privacy. The typical Hill Country rock house has a broad front porch across the front for al fresco dining and watching wildlife. The house is warm and wonderful, and the kitchen has newer appliances and is fully equipped for most types of cooking. Ask if you need something special.

Linens are provided for our guests.

There are so many things to do in the Hill Country, including taking country walks both on the property and in the area. The Hill Country has lots of small German towns for antiquing, dining and wine tastings. Nearby San Antonio has museums, SeaWorld and other theme parks, and, of course, the RiverWalk. Ask about hamburger joint voted by TEXAS MONTHLY as third best in Texas.

A short drive to Marquardt Ranch. Ask about the best hamburger joint in the Hill Country.

Just outside Boerne, near Comfort, Luckenbach, Fredericksburg, Tx. Ask about the bat tunnel in the spring and summer (within driving distance). Less than 10 miles to Marquardt Ranch.

You look on line through thousands. Find what you want-- Is it really as described ? Clean, comfortable, owners o.k. ? Do you like them, they you. Are they always "there".?
We stayed the entire month of Jan. This Home is everything as stated & more. You do not feel like your in a rental. This is home has everything you`d want +.Owners checked in on ocasion, just to check. They`re wonderful people always asked if we had everything etc.
We took long walks, neighbors all very friendly.
My wife felt at home & safe-- That left me able to go with friends hunting & fishing.
Boerne is a great, friendly town & very easy to get to S.A. for city "stuff".
This will be our winter "home" for years.
What more can I say Perfect--- Book it !

Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect place for my daughters bachelorette weekend. She wanted a low key weekend in the hill country. This home was perfect for 5 women. We enjoyed Boerne, Comfort, Fredericksburg and Luckenbach. I would highly recommend The Creek in Boerne for dinner. The house was fully stocked, very clean and very well maintained. Both mornings we were greeted by 15-20 deer. The owner Lise was fantastic. She was very quick to respond to email questions, left detailed information and even left us food for the deer. I would highly recommend this property and will be back. You will not be disappointed.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a relaxing and rejuvenating time in this beautiful property. Lise was an ideal hostess/landlord. She met us upon arrival, ensured we had everything we needed, and provided above and beyond: child proofing before our arrival, providing directions for back roads to our destination, mailing items we left behind. The house is set up very well, with everything you may need. Anything that crossed our minds, we found it. The hammock and the deer were our favorite things! Also, the 2- and 5-year olds loved "chopping" wood from the wood pile. A great country getaway.

Owner's Response: I just love sharing the specialness of this Hill Country treasure, and the backroads to quaint little German towns. It is really nice when little children can be up close with deer, rabbits, road runners, and other interesting wildlife. Thanks for your comments. Lise

We LOVED this place!!!! I was a little worried and not sure what to expect for our first time renting a vacation home. PLUS we were coming all the way from Utah to visit family in Texas. After searching what seemed forever we narrowed it down to 2 places and we were so happy we decided to stay here. It was everything and MORE!!! It was the perfect size for our family of 5 and we had permission from the owners to invite a small number of family members through the week to stay with us. They took turns visiting us so we never had more than what was suppose to be in the rental. AND they didn't have any hidden cost like other places we looked at when it came to having them visit and stay. It made it so much easier to have them come to us then us driving everywhere to see them. They did come to do yard work, but we didn't care.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!!! Coming back again......

BETTER THAN EXPECTED.

  • 5 of 5
We returned home last night and after a month it was like we never left. We now have a second home.
There aren't words (or pictures) to express this home and property.
Lise and Ron are some of the best host we have met (have rented several properties around the world) and are not only great host but wonderful people.
The house is more than expected in every way and so is the property.
We had three different couples drop by (at different times) during the month we were there and had to make a deal with them that we get first choice at reserving since they loved it.
Darlene and I were there a month with three bedrooms and it never seemed to big and with couples there never seemed to small.
The wildlife is wonderful.
We hardly left the property except for walks.
Kitchen is so well stocked we hardly went out to eat and at the same time there is plenty of places when we wanted to go out. All you need is your groceries and to relax.
You are in the country but ten minutes from anything you want or need.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT and have already scheduled another month this year.
Again thank you Lise and Ron.

We have stayed at the Casita for two week to two month periods for 8 or 9 years. That about says it all doesn’t it !! It has all the amenities of home plus has ample room for your personal guests should you desire. The owner is friendly , responsive to your requests, and very helpful to you enjoying your stay in the Hill Country. We particularly like the privacy afforded by ten acres and controlled access; and more than enjoy the wildlife which this winter included deer, foxes, porcupines, possums, wild turkeys, and a great horned owl that made a spectacular evening silhouette sitting atop one of the oaks. We maintain a bird feeder or two in the back yard and have an endless bird variety visit them. Walking is great, no traffic so to speak, and a great way to meet neighbors. Relaxing on the deck or front porch is easy.

The home is under ten minutes to downtown Boerne ( which has to be one of the neatest small towns in Texas ), 35 minutes to the SA airport, 45 minutes to Riverwalk, and 25 minutes to Oak Hills Church to listen to Max Lucado. Countless small towns and Texas sights are within an hour.

All in all, an easy place to enjoy oneself.
