Property Details

Updated: May 22, 2015
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Lovely home on working ranch with expansive views of rural countryside. Ranch has horses, cattle, sheep, chickens, cats & dogs, and real live roosters- so no need for an alarm! But you can always go back to sleep.

The home is clean and well-cared for and includes covered porches, washer & dryer, full kitchen, WiFi, and all the furnishing that make a house a home.

There is a 2 vehicle carport that will keep the hot Texas sun from melting your dash in the summer heat! Gated entry and the owners' home shares the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Morning,


I wanted to personally say that we had an amazing time on your property. All of my party enjoyed the dogs…I think one person even “adopted” them for the duration of our stay.

If you have read any of the reviews, you should have a good idea of how special this experience of living on Anna & Robert’s ranch is; however, the hospitality they provide even exceeds the housing and amenities. They are both sharing, caring, and happy to help you experience as much or little of ranch life as you would like. The ranch house is clean, comfortable, well stocked and you feel right at home. The location is convenient to Hill Country, Austin, San Marcos, and the best BBQ anywhere. We are planning our return for another month in 2016 right now.

Great Place to vacation

  • 5 of 5
Wow. We spent two months at this gem. From our arrival we had a great time. Anna left us a welcoming basket of fruit rustic bread, farm fresh eggs, beer, win. Home was clean and well Decorated. Their library was first rate. It spanned a great selection of children's books, history, best sellers, gardening books and coffee table books.
The few problems we had were taken " care of quickly and with good humor. And the welcoming committee of five of the best dogs you will meet. Our golden retriever had a great time socializing with the "Pack".
You can't ask for a better place to escape from the northern winters.

The property was perfect for a holiday stay.

  • 4 of 5
We were more than pleased with our stay. The country atmosphere and at home feel helped to make our holiday stay perfect. We loved the antiques and the cozy accommodations. It was the perfect size for our family and even the dogs had the best time. Being city dogs we did not know what they would do, but they absolutely loved being able to be outside in the fenced yard. We hope to be able to return for another visit during the holidays in the future.

Could not ask for more!

I am a bit conflicted about writing this review...on one hand, I want to give the GLOWING review that Robert and Anna deserve, but on the other hand I want to keep it our little secret!

All kidding aside, our stay with Robert and Anna during the 2014 Formula 1 Grand Prix this year was absolutely FABULOUS. We have been to this event 3 times and have stayed in all walks of accommodations. This is by far our favorite! For starters, I am not sure there are 2 nicer people in all of Texas! Anna was very communicative long before we ever arrived, which was much appreciated. Upon arrival we had a fridge full of beverages and a welcome snack tray (much needed after a long flight!). The property is exactly as pictured, if not better. The rooms are perfect and the beds are the most comfortable that I have ever slept on in a vacation rental, and the animals are a complete joy! Anna and Robert go above and beyond to provide sincere hospitality. I honestly do not feel that any review I could write would do them or the property justice. This property is a MUST HAVE for our future trips to Texas. Don't miss this one!
