EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely breathtaking! I love that a place only 45 minutes outside of Austin can truly make you feel as if you’ve escaped to a faraway destination. It transports you to a place “far away” from to-do lists and the hustle and bustle of your normal routine within the city limits. If you’re looking to unplug, unwind, and soak up the beauty of the little things… then this is the place for you!

The kitchen is fully stocked with glassware, cutlery, stemware and any gadgets you might need. Don’t forget to stop at the grocery store on the way in, because there is not a lot (other than the tiny general store) of options within 20 miles or so.
The bathrooms are sparkling clean with luxury linens and fixtures and the beds are warm and comfortable. When you get cozy on the back porch, you will see scores of butterflies in the trees, hummingbirds, dozens of deer so close you can almost touch them, millions of stars, and a panoramic view of the hill country complete with sunsets. There is a hot tub, a fire pit, a grill and seating for anyone looking to spend some quality time together. It is well suited for a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family looking for fun in a non-electronic world.

Unlike other places I have rented from Homeaway, VRBO or Airbnb this home has more than what you could ever dream of needing. Every little detail has been planned out for you. From linens, to kitchen gadgets to phone chargers and surround sound… You are sure to have everything you could possibly need.
I am a Wedding Planner, and booked this place for an employee retreat and bonding session. Everyone loved it and no one wanted to leave! My job requires significant attention to detail, and every expectation was exceeded. I can’t wait to book my next visit!

VERY COMFORTABLE, SPACIOUS, AND CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Hill Country
home.

I wish I could have brought the kitchen home with me, top of the line appliances, granite, and lots of counter space. The entire house was spic and span clean.

The bedrooms were spacious and the beds oh so comfortable.

The living area is wonderful for gatherings with plenty of comfortable leather seating, big screen TV, fireplace, and docks for Ipod. The home is beautifully appointed with Olaf Wieghorst prints. I loved the large windows in the living area that made you feel like you were outside.

The deck off the living area is great for relaxing with a fire pit with seating, a grill and a hot tub. On the chilly nights it was great the hop in the hot tub and gaze and the moon and the stars.

I will highly recommend this place to my friends and will stay there again on my next trip. The owner, Frank, was so easy to work with and very helpful.

It had been a while since I had been to this part of the lake and it was wonderful to see all the shops and restaurants close by at Bee Cave.

We were also attending a conference in Austin and the drive in every day was easy and scenic.

This beautiful home gets two thumbs up from me.

The property was great, the management was great, the view was stunning, and to top it all off there was a hot tub! Will definitely be returning for another weekend get away.

EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED! ALREADPLANNING TO GO BACK.

  • 5 of 5
We had booked another home originally for our weekend getaway with extended family, but due to flooding, the home was no longer available for us. Everyone in the group was disappointed, as we had all been excited about that particular house.
With less than 48 hours before our trip, we were frantic to find a suitable place that would accommodate our "wish list" as everyone had already made travel plans. I submitted inquiries to multiple properties, but when Frank called saying that the Serene Hill Country Home was available, I was thrilled! They were very accommodating in making our timeline work, and the house was perfect for us. Everything was exactly as described or even better. We had gorgeous weather, so we opted to hang out on the back deck with the fire pit and the hot tub. The wall of windows allowed for uninterrupted viewing of the game, and the outdoor speakers made sure we didn't miss a play.
The kitchen is completely decked out with KitchenAid appliances, and we were able to find everything we could possibly need.
We were given their cell number to call or text with any issues, but we truly didn't have any. We look forward to coming back!

BEAUTIFUL VIEW AND A BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
The house was very clean and nicely decorated and we felt at home right away. We spent most of the time on the spacious deck tending the grill and admiring the view because it was so amazing! We also appreciated the sound system in the house as well as full kitchen and ample sleeping quarters.

Frank is a great guy and was very helpful in all of our interactions. I would highly recommend this house as it is beautiful, very comfortable, and has everything needed for a great get-away..

WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly what we were looking for!!! Beautifully furnished, beautiful views of the lake with a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere!!

I definitely plan to return! This weekend was a family get away for my mom's birthday, so we had 7 people from 11years old to 71years old and it met everyone's expectations!!

Being from Texas and knowing about the drought, we didn't really expect too much from the lake. But even being 40feet low, we could walk down and still go swimming! We didn't even use the pool! We did use the jacuuzi though!!! (Heads up! There is no boat dock, only walking access to the lake from the property.)

Cypress Valley Canopy Tours was about a 10-15 minute drive through beautiful country and was a GREAT way to spend an afternoon!!!

I highly recommend this house to anyone wanting a get-away! The owner was especially pleasant to deal with and Jill, who helps Frank with the property, was easily accessible in case we needed anything. (which we didn't!)

My only recommendation for someone planning to stay here is to do your grocery shopping before you get there. There isn't really anyplace very close by to go, and you won't want to waste time away getting groceries once you get there!

Thank you again Frank, and we look forward to staying there again!

Recommend for groups of friends, families etc. simply put, an all around nice place for a variety of types of stays!!

Also! We loved the multitude of iPod plug-ins, the TVs and the sound system throughout the house!!!
