Bedrooms 1, Bathrooms 1, Sleeps 2

Surrounded by picturesque scenery of Texas Hill Country, the charming city of Helotes is the perfect destination for a quiet retreat. If you’re looking for a calm rejuvenating vacation this guest house is the perfect place for you. Situated in a tranquil, semi-secluded location this peaceful home offers direct access to an array of high-end amenities, so you can pamper yourself as you enjoy the serenity of the Texas countryside.

This house has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom, so it’s a great size for a couple escaping on a romantic retreat. Or you can rent both vacation rental units on site for exlusive use of the property! Both units can sleep up to 8 people. The quaint home features a verandah with rockers on the outside, and a full kitchen, comfy living room and romantic master bedroom on the inside. Spend your mornings sipping coffee or reading a book as you kick back in a rocker on the verandah. Head over to the shared pool to soak up some sun. Surround by lush foliage and complete with a rock waterfall, this pool is an awesome retreat. Lounge in the shade of the cabana, relax in the private hot tub, or go for an invigorating swim in the crystal blue water. If you and your guests get hungry, the shared cabana area is equipped with grills, so you can easily have a poolside barbeque. To truly pamper yourself, indulge in the shared aromatherapy steam room. The steam is infused with eucalyptus, and has built-in speakers, so you can listen to your favorite tunes while steaming. Pure pampered bliss! You can even arrange with the owners to have a licensed masseuse specializing in physical therapy to make a house call and get a great massage! In the evenings the fire pit is the perfect place to relax as you roast marshmallows and enjoy the company of your guests. 

A quintessential Texas town, Helotes has plenty to discover. Take a nature walk, explore Old Town Helotes, attend a local festival, enjoy live music, or sample cuisine from a local restaurant. Helotes is an easy drive from San Antonio, so you may choose to spend a day perusing the San Antonio River Walk, or learning about history as you visit the Alamo. Whether you choose to explore, or just relax by the pool at this stunning guest house, you’re sure to have an awesome stay!

My husband and I stayed for our anniversary! Centrally located to tons of attractions. Very peaceful. Fire pit was beautiful at night. Hot tub was wonderful as well! Tamra and Tony were so personable and helpful. We are already planning a trip to rent the entire property.

Great relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 3 nights here for our 24th Anniversary. The location and property and simply fantastic, beautiful spot in the Hill Country outside San Antonio.The pool area and pool house are such a wonderful place to just relax, the weather was, as always, a mixed bag so Friday the water was a little too cool to spend too much time swimming. On Saturday the sun was out all day and dipping into the pool was perfect as was laying out on the lounge chairs to soak up the rays. The steam shower is a real treat, I set the temp to 99 and the timer to 15min and came out feeling like my pores had all been cleansed and life was good.

The cabin is nice and clean and has everything you need, a full kitchen a nice bed and a couch to watch a movie from. Sitting out on the patio in the rocking chairs while grilling some steaks and enjoying the hill country is something to be experienced.

The only downside (and this was completely out of the control of the owners) was that the storm that blew through Friday evening knocked out the power from about 7pm to around 2am, but even that was not so bad. We found some candles in the pool house and then talked and read books before going to bed.

If you want to get away for the weekend and get some Zen, I highly recommend staying here.

We loved this place and plan to return on our next outing.

The house was intimate, quiet, and perfect for our retreat. The mattress on the bed should be replaced and the flooring is a little "mysterious", but overall we love this location. The pool area is unbelievable.

Misleading Info and a Leaky Roof

  • 3 of 5

We spent three nights at this little cottage. It was nice. The Pool house was amazing We were told that there was a fireplace in the unit, even after I called to make sure, but it was not. The fireplace is in the pool house. The hot tub is private, meaning it is only used by you, but it was not private in the sense that it was in open view of all other cottages. A lattice should have been used to block the view. It rained quite a bit so the ceiling in the bathroom leaked and dripped on you whenever you used the toilet. We had to place towels to keep the leak from causing puddles to form on the floor. The rain kept us from enjoying the hot tub at our unit because it is not covered.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We are sorry that you misunderstood that the fireplace was located within the rental, rather than in the pool cabana. We have clarified the listing description to avoid this confusion in the future. There was a small leak with one bathroom window, which the owner offered to repair immediately after being notified - an offer which you declined. The ceiling was not leaking, and the leaking window has since been repaired. There are numerous pictures showing from different angles the position of the hot tub relative to the house and the pool. The hot tub is not covered, as most guests enjoy looking at the stars in the dark sky on clear nights. Good luck in your future travels! ~ The Evolve Team

So romantic!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! Small and secluded. It has more features than I expected including an awesome pool with pool house equipped with TV, grill and steam shower, glass fire pit, personal hot tub and the best bathtub ever! We went for our 2nd wedding anniversary and my only complaint is that we didn't have more time to stay... Definitely going back!

Amazing find!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our anniversary weekend at this hill country retreat. We had an amazing weekend relaxing in the hot tub and pool side. We grilled steaks one night and went into San Antonio for seafood on the river walk the next. It was the perfect, quiet escape!!
