Overview

Comfort Estate Rental Photos and Description

5000 sq. ft.., 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 12 in 2 king beds and 4 queen beds)

Enjoy your choice of a self catering stay or an all-inclusive experience: gourmet food by our award winning Master Chef George Paramithas in an exclusive, resort-style ranch estate. Please note that all food costs, tax and gratuity are extra and are billed separately, depending on your menu choices.

The house is 5000 square feet with another 3000 square feet of covered porches and another 2000+ square feet deck surrounding the pool. The house is set within 80 acres - atop a ridge with 30+ mile views to the east, south and west.

The main part of the home is over 3000 square feet and has 2 of the 6 bedrooms, 2½ baths, laundry, huge gourmet kitchen, butler's pantry, huge dining area, great room & 3 fireplaces (in master, great & porch). An upstairs media room features a Bang & Olufsen® HDTV with surround sound and seat amplifiers. There also are TVs in the master bedroom & living room. The casitas feature Bang & Olufsen® iPod®/iPad® (and Android) docking stations for unbelievable sound.

The master suite includes a separate shower and large soaking tub. The home & two casitas flank the enormous pool with double screened doors throughout. Each casita has 2 bedrooms with a shared 3/4 bath.

Relax in the huge courtyard pool and fireplace or on the screened porch. The estate offers the finishes, furnishings and comforts you would expect from a world-class resort. You will be in awe of the spectacular 360° views of the Texas Hill Country - so much so that day excursions will interfere!

Enjoy the sunrise over the pool and beautiful, panoramic vistas.

Alexandra Ranch is surrounded by Texas Hill Country's renowned wineries and antique shops. However, we strongly recommend that for short, 2 day visits, you make Alexandra Ranch your only destination. Once you arrive at this private, resort-like ranch, you'll understand.

Dine in the great room or under the stars with food prepared by our renowned chef (extra charges apply for all food and beverage; food costs are not included in our published rates).

The estate offers multiple areas for dining and gathering. Enjoy gathering in front of the outdoor fireplace on cool evenings. Gaze at the incredible night sky from the magnificent pool. You won't see more stars even in the wilderness of Big Bend.

Since our closest neighbors are far away, light and noise pollution are non-existent.

The pool deck, home and casitas are all on one level with no steps.

If you desire seclusion and need fewer rooms, we would be glad to accommodate you by renting a portion of the property. (Please note that there is a 4 person maximum for the main house.) Weekday house only rentals: $999. Subject to availability; not available next to holiday weekends.

*Unless otherwise specified, all prices are exclusive of food, alcohol, tax and HomeAway insurance. Gratuities are at your discretion.

Why Mark and Sandra - Owners chose Comfort

Fantastic location, unbelievable views, total privacy and seclusion with everything included for a relaxing 2 or 3 day holiday.

What makes this estate unique

Alexandra Ranch combines luxury with a rustic hill country flair in the ever-popular, renowned Texas wine country. Most of the best known wineries are within 20 miles of the property.

You can combine your stay with a delightful culinary experience. Please note: actual food prices depend on your menu choices and are billed separately from your accommodation by our private chef. Contact our chef directly at 210-441-2054 or go to www.kalocatering.com for more information.

For self-catering (you bring and prepare your own food), the price is just $1299 for 12 persons, weekdays ($1499 Thursday, Friday and Saturday). Please note we have a 2-day minimum stay. We also offer seasonal discounts and we offer discounts for stays of longer than 3 days, so please enquire!

Although we offer fine dining on the property, absolutely no weddings, large events, bachelorette parties or the like are permitted. If you want to have your wedding or event nearby, please contact Chef George at 210-441-2054, who can assist you in locating a suitable wedding and reception venue near the ranch.

Because we are not a wedding or event venue, we do not accommodate groups of more than 12 persons. However, there are several event venues very close to the ranch and our renowned chef can cater your event at these venues.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the most beautiful estate in the most beautiful part of the Texas Hill Country, hands down. We came with 4 other couples and had an absolutely wonderful time around the pool, jogging the perimeter of the ranch, and just relaxing. We will definitely come back again and again.

Our new spring break destination

  • 5 of 5

We brought the whole family here for the kIds' spring break and absolutely loved our stay. The property is beautiful and relaxing - just what we all needed! We also enjoyed some of the nearby sightseeing. But the family agrees, sitting poolside, watching the breathtaking Hill Country sunsets, was one of the best parts of our vacation. We'll definitely be back!

Great for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas week at Alexandra Ranch with our large family. It was perfect in every way. Beautiful pool and spa, with a lovely spacious terrace around the pool with distant views of the hill country around Comfort, TX. We loved the sunrises and sunsets, the large, comfortable living room with fireplace and giant TV, the spacious kitchen and dining room, and all the amenities such as TV, separate video room upstairs, games, books, and plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have their own privacy. Two families lived in the separate casitas, which open off the pool, and are ideal for a family of four. Two more families stayed in the main house. The master bedroom is large and elegant, with four poster bed, large TV, desk and couch. The bathroom and dressing room are spacious and well-appointed. The house reminded us of a Tuscan villa, and though everything is Texas oversized, it was comfortable and welcoming in every way....especially the bronze Wyatt Earp at the front door with a Santa hat, no less.

Our trip

We met several couples for a weekend getaway. The property was secluded and beautiful. There was plenty of room for "alone time" and space for gathering together as well. Chef George was fabulous. We will be back!

Awesome rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Alexandra Ranch in Comfort. The pictures on the website don't do this beautiful home justice. It is even much more beautiful when you see it for yourself. We were there for my son's wedding in Sisterdale. Our family stayed in the 2 bedrooms of the main house and the bride's family stayed in the 2 casita's. The view from the pool area is breathtaking. We took advantage of using the chef, George. He is wonderful and his culinary skills are first class. We had him cater a dinner for 25 people around the pool and the food was fabulous! We also had him cook breakfast all 3 mornings we were there and it turned out better than I could have imagined. He brought in all the food and can have it prepared what ever time you would like. The furnishings in the home are wonderful and the beds and linens are better than mine at home. You can also see lots of wildlife on and around the property. I would not hesitate to recommend this property and also George, the chef. He made this a truly wonderful vacation because I could relax and not worry about cooking or entertaining the guests we had in the casitas. Thank you George!!!
