LOCATED ON 50 ACRE RANCH W/WALKING DISTANCE TO THE BLANCO RIVER

Wimberley House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Located less than 3 miles from Wimberley Square, this property is located across the street from the Blanco River. Come pet the horses and look at the animals found on this 50 acre ranch. You will drive about up a tree lined driveway to this 2000 square foot home tucked away among large shady oak trees.

There is a new swimming pool that is shared with 1 other property. The renter can relax in lounge chairs, or go for a dip and cool off on a hot summer day. The pool is nestled in among a small grove of trees if you prefer to hide in the shade, or simply read a book and watch the kids play in the sun.

Just up the street is the Corral Theater (outdoor movie theater), Blue Hole, and the Wimberley Theatre.

Pet Friendly

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks for your suggestion to rent both Cedar Creek & Horse Creek cottages, everything went well & all of the guests loved the property. We had a wonderful wedding & I know that there were a few first time visitors to Wimberley who are already making plans to return.

Good bargin; I will return but there is room for improvement

  • 4 of 5
My wife, 3 yr old, 1 yr old and I stayed here for about 3 nights. Some notes:

- I felt comfortable letting my kids wander around the house. For those with young ones: there were a couple electrical outlets with the covers coming off. There are also a couple places in the home where there is a single step.
- They had a TV, DVD player and some DVDs. It all worked fine.
- There is a great outdoor eating area with a huge table and a regular size picnic table.
- The pool was very clean.
- It's a short drive (7 mins or so) from the property to "downtown" Wimberly. There is also a grocery store not to far away.
- We saw horses, cows and donkeys (or mules... not sure) on adjacent properties. The kids enjoyed that.
- It house itself was clean with the exception of some very dusty surfaces and the inside of the dish washer. Neither was a huge deal for me but not having to deal with those would have contributed to a 5 start rating.
- This house is on the same property as another VRBO listing. They are separated by a 30-40 ft walkway.
- There is a large trampoline on the property.
- There is a window in the master shower. When you look out you see the yard and then the other house on the property. That would have been weird if the other house was occupied but it was not.

Christmas Vacation

  • 2 of 5
Not what I expected. We rented during the holidays and there was not a single decoration. Adding that would make you feel welcome and at home. Wood fire place, but not a single log to welcome you. Website states there's a dvd ( there's none), cable ( working very poorly with limited channels and control remote not programmed). Kitchen is lacking utensils, only one cutting knife and it doesn't work, no bottle wine opener. Limited on linens (bring your own towels). Smells dirty and old. It looks like the owners have never stepped foot there or have even tried to spend one night to see what's needed. Dishwasher has not been attached. It definitely needs some tender loving care, and it could have great potential. Scenery was gorgeous.

Owner's Response: We are open 7 days a week and are available for a guest to contact us to address the issues listed in this property review. Many of our property owners do not decorate for Christmas or any other holidays. Not all owners provide firewood at their properties (the ones that do provide firewood it is listed in the amenities) but it is available in town at several locations and we can direct guests to these locations if the guest contacts us. There should have been a DVD player at this property and there is now. We have them at our office and a guest can call us and we will deliver one to the property. This property has satellite TV and prior guests did not indicate any problems, we are happy to contact the satellite company to schedule service if the guest contacts us and make us aware of the problem. The problem is now fixed. Sometimes utensil items disappear from previous rentals and again we have staff on duty 7 days a week that are happy to deliver anything a guest needs if the guest contacts us. We are taking a thorough inventory of this property and stocking the items mentioned. Our maintenance man has fixed the dishwasher, we were not aware it was not attached until this review. This particular property has many back to back bookings due to the swimming pool, child friendly atmosphere, close proximity to the river and the low cost for the number of guests that it can accommodate. We have made every effort to make sure future guests do not have these issues, but if there is an issue we hope the guest will call us and give us the opportunity to resolve the issue. The reason we have staff on duty 7 days a week is to provide the best possible service to our guests.

Everything was very nice only thing missing was some additional pots and pans for a big family cooking pasta etc. and the hot tub intakes looked dirty, otherwise a good good getaway.

Owner's Response: Hi Mark,
We are so sorry for the inconvenience. Unfortunately there isn't a lot of storage space at this property for over-sized pots. As for the hot tub we have removed it from the amenity list and no longer offer a hot tub at this property. Thank you and we welcome you back!

nice house, but a dead zone for cell phones

  • 4 of 5
the house was neat and clean, with a large master suite. It was comfortable, well furnished, and the surroundings were lovely. The lack of cell phone service was a surprise, though, as we tend to take it for granted. I do feel this should have been mentioned in the description and the rental agreement. we had to walk down the road a quarter mile to pick up service. Also the clothes washer was broken when we were there. The property itself was just great, but I suggest prospective tenants check with the agent on these two things before making a final decision.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathleen,
Yes, the cell service in the Hill Country can be a bit patchy in certain locations in the hill country. AT&T cell service seems to be the best cell service in Wimberley at most locations. We do apologize about the inconvenience of washer being in-operable. We have since had it repaired. Thank you for your comments. Josie
