About Hershel and Becky Sandifer

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

Why Hershel and Becky Sandifer chose Austin

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

We miss it everyday!

We can't say more amazing things about this house. My husband surprised me for my birthday with a group of close friends to stay at this house for the weekend. It has everything you can possibly think of. Hershel was incredibly accommodating with showing us how to work the remotes, projection, grills, etc. We had such an amazing time grilling, swimming and watching movies in the pool. The house itself is so warm and inviting and we made some very beautiful memories. Now that we are home we can't stop thinking about it! Will definitely be back!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
We had a blast! There were 11 of us ranging in age from 21 to 97. There was something for everyone to do. The house was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. There were so many extra fun things, like the fishing pond (of which we caught many) and the outdoor movie screen. And, yes, the pool was awesome. Hershel and Becky answered all of our questions and provided everything we could possibly need. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house, Hershel and Becky. We will be returning next year!

Long weekend family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our whole family absolutely loved this house! It was perfect for our 8 adults and 4 kids. When we arrived we received a tour of the house and instructions for the electronics/sound systems. No worries if you forget because all the instructions are typed, plus the owner offers to be available for calls anytime. The house was clean and maintained. We had plenty of towels, toilet paper, dishes to cook and eat on, blankets/sheets--this house was well equipped with everything you need. The cooks and grillers in the family loved the kitchen space, regular gas grill and the flat grill outside--we used the flat grill for bacon and pancakes a couple of mornings. No time wasted there since you can multi task cook on that! Movies outside at the pool--better than a drive-in movie! The pool was amazing--beautifully done with rocks, fountains and don't bother bringing pool toys or noodles to float on...already there. You can fish in the pond and the owner might give you tips on peak times for catching some good ole catfish! The paddle boat was a hit with the kiddos and there are life jackets provided in all sizes. The house is secluded but easy to find. We ended the trip with taking some awesome family photos on the lovely front porch steps. I highly recommend this house for family getaways, friend reunions or just a nice place to get away.

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!!
