Hershel is a commercial construction project manager who loves to work on his land, restore classic cars, juke boxes, and coke machines. He loves cooking catfish and craw fish for large groups! While Hershel was building the house, Becky went back to school and received her PhD and Executive Coaching certification. They both love spending time with their family and four dogs.

Hershel and Becky Sandifer purchased this house in 2009

Hershel used his construction experience to build their dream house. They began hosting events for their friends and family which led to the idea of sharing the house with others. Their son and his wife were married down by the pond in a beautiful outdoor wedding.

We chose this land because it was a country setting with plenty of privacy but in close proximity to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and outlet mall shopping San Marcos.

WONDERFUL FAMILY WEEKEND.

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect house for our group of nine ranging from toddler to grandparents. Hershel & Becky were there to greet us when we arrived, showed us the property and how to work all the great technology. The pool was a favorite, and watching movies on the outdoor screen was such a treat. Lots of 8 & 9 ball billiard games were played, and several of us tried our hands at fishing. We know the trip was a success when the kids and grandkids say let's come back next year and stay longer! Thanks Hershel & Becky for sharing your wonderful property.

WOW JUST PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
our experience was wonderful starting with the first contact of owners to make reservations! This property offers something for everyone. We came from out of state to visit family in the area and we all enjoyed every minute here! Even on a chilly night we all were cozy and happy watching a movie on the huge outdoor screen. we had a fish fry our second evening from our exciting catches at the beautiful pond! I cannot say enough about this place and the most wonderful memories our family will always cherish! Cannot wait to plan another trip to Mesquite Retreat!!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL HOUSE, GREAT WEEKEND TRIP

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I rented the house for the Memorial Day 2014 weekend and it more than exceeded expectations. The house is very large, very clean, and very well maintained.

The Owner met me to give me a tour of the house, explaining how to work different stereo and tv systems. The house seemed to have everything you want for a relaxing weekend: stereo system that connected to speakers throughout the house, outdoor movie projector, inside movie projector, Wii, Netflix, iPod connection, board games, pool table, Wi-Fi, small appliances galore (ask...they most likely have it), golf cart, fishing pond with rowboat and paddle boats, horse shoes, swimming pool, hot tub, etc.

The house itself sits on 10 acres of land, giving you a secluded getaway. Overall, it was a great experience and a wonderful house. I highly recommend this rental to anyone.

FANTASTIC COUNTRY GETAWAY SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at Mesquite Retreat ready to enjoy the amenities but also planning to make a few excursions as we had friends from Australia with us. It took us about 2 hours to decide that we weren't leaving the premises until we had to the following Monday.

We booked the location for a family celebration and it worked admirably for the purpose. I think we took advantage of everything except the master bathtub during our stay :-) We fished, rode the golf cart, swam, soaked in the hot tub, played horseshoes and pool, watched movies on the outdoor screen, played music on the whole house music system, took walks, and just generally relaxed and enjoyed.

The owners were there to greet us and show us around which was very helpful in learning all the buttons to push. The house is in beautiful shape and we felt welcome and more than taken care of with all the towels and other amenities on offer.

We would happily book another stay. Many thanks!

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO CELEBRATE OUR SONS GRADUATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed this beautiful home to celebrate our sons graduation. We can't say enough what a wonderful home this was and it is equipped with everything you need and then some. The home is beautifully decorated and such a fun party house with the pool, hot tub, movies on the big screen and in the play room, music streaming throughout the entire home. The pond was enjoyed by all and we caught 3 fish while there. I would recommend this home to families looking to celebrate or gather for a special occasion, or a get away for tranquility. We will definitely be coming back and staying longer. Thank you for a lovely time!

LOVED IT!!

  • 5 of 5
This listing was AWESOME!! Everything in the description was very accurate!! We had a great time with lots of great memories made!! The owners were very friendly and explained everything in detail(we didn't have to call them) I would highly recommend this place to everyone who wants a getaway!! Since the weather didn't permit for our kiddos to swim in the pool we took them to Austin Park and pizza and to the aquarium and to a kids museum. We had a great Spring Break!! Thank you
