Peggy and Phil Collins live in the Houston area. We purchased our first home in Wimberley in 2005, a 6 bedroom 5 bath home on a 3 acre lot on the river, on Flite Acres. That went so good that we purchased this home a year later. Since then, we built a 5,000 sq ft home on 33 acres, right on the devil's backbone, with a 40 mile view. We own several commercial properties in downtown Wimberley, so we are very invested in the area. Phil owns some high voltage electric service companies, that he works on in all of his free time:)
KC Barnes purchased this house in 2006
We had a house on the river and wanted a view property, with access to the river. This house has both. The 12 acres makes this a very secluded property, and the layout is like a resort. It is very popular for large groups, because everyone can be at the same place, but is not always underfoot. They can be in the game room, at the fire pit, in the pool, on one of the three deks looking at the view, in the hot tub, in the house watching TV in front of the fireplace, in the hot tub, on the elevated observationdeck, walking the trails, going to the river, etc, etc, etc.
12 acre secluded property. Very spread out, so not everyone is underfoot. beautiful pool, with baby/lounge pool. full outdoor kitchen. Hot tub, fire pit, walking trails. Shake your corn bucket and the deer come running. True hill country estate living.
Sixteen of us Houstonites journeyed up here to Wimberley to celebrate two of our dearest friends 30th birthday. Every one had a marvelous time and I think we grew even a little closer. One of the birthday girls baby was revealed that it was going to be another girl!
This house is awesome! I was staying there with a group of 7 ladies for a weekend of shopping and eating some great meals in Wimberley. This was the perfect set up for us- several stayed in the main house and a couple of us stayed in the Casita. We were able to spend lots of time together without it being crowded. The house is only a few minutes from town and the grounds are so lovely. We woke up to 12 deer in the front yard. The house was beautiful inside and the kitchen and bathrooms well stocked with necessities.
My only comment for the owners would be if there could be a way to better mark the turnoffs to get to the house- we drove back from dinner after dark and it was a little difficult to see where to turn in. We figured it out so no problem, but it would be helpful to have better markings.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for a great gathering place for friends or family.
We had a big group (8 adults and 10 kids) and it was perfect. Wonderful location. Easy to access. Everybody was comfortable. The pool was especially good for kids as it has an area that is 2-3ft deep for the little ones. There are also several patios and decks perched up high so the adults could enjoy the view after the kids went to bed. This is a great choice for Wimberley.
This location is perfect for a family get away. We had 6 adults and 4 kids and it works well. The set up with the pool made for a great relaxing weekend.
To get deer in the front yard all you have to do is shake some corn in a cup and they will come running.
We will make this a regular vacation spot. This is our 6th house on VBRO and by far the best
As veteran renters of vacation properties, we can say this is one of the finest, best outfitted homes we've occupied in 30+ years of travel. My husband has some minor mobility issues so the ground level access with the master and generous walk-in shower on the main floor were a huge plus. The views from the rooms and the porch are truly spectacular. We saw so many stars, it was almost like living in a planetarium at night. We didn't get around to much sight-seeing because we simply couldn't tear ourselves away from all the wild visitors to the front yard. (We set out deer and bird feed to encourage it.) More than a dozen deer were regulars, as were small fox, jackrabbits, squirrels and birds. It was very busy out there! The house and grounds are very well maintained by the housekeeper, Rita, and a handyman/gardener, John. We didn't bring a crowd with us but the place would accommodate a huge group with plenty of space -- especially with the adjacent 2-bedroom casita. The pool is gorgeous and clean and with the outdoor kitchen, one could have dinner on the patio every night! We had only one complaint and that was that we didn't stay long enough. Next time!
The house is wonderful and spacious, far exceeds what the pictures show! Our group had problems with the computer, no internet access, hot tub not working, the entrance gate didn't always work properly, and there were a few things we couldn't figure out how to do (such as turn off the pool cleaning apparatus that would occasionally spray everyone!). Our group would have loved to go back but the owner stopped responding to our emails - with the only explanation that someone in our group had upset her housekeeper (none of us had any idea what could have upset her).
It is a great place for a gathering but I guess we'll have to look elsewhere for our annual lodging. Disappointing!
We had a girls weekend at this house and I couldn't believe the space, style and convenience that it had. It was truly beautiful outside and inside with lots of land to walk and take pictures on. Deer came into the yard several times. The hot tub, pool, outdoor kitchen, sitting areas with fire pits, game room with pool table - it was truly spectacular especially for the price!
