LUXURY HILL COUNTRY RETREAT WITH POOL, TENNIS, CREEK, WIFI, HDTV, MORE

Dripping Springs Estate Rental Photos and Description

Two house estate - 9BR, 5 1/2 BA total - sleeps up to 30 people

The perfect private retreat in the beautiful Hill Country, but still close to Austin and convenient for SXSW, ACL, Formula 1 and more for your big family or corporate gatherings.

Named for the ancient Aboriginals who roamed the vast Australian desert some 40-65,000 years ago,Tingari Ranch Retreat is a secluded yet luxurious retreat nestled in the Texas hill-country and waiting to welcome your family and friends for a truly magical escape.

The Ranch consists of two large homes, the Ranch House and the Bungalow, tucked away in a private tranquil valley on an escarpment with Onion Creek meandering through its center.Together, these homes total more than 7,500 square feet of living space (sleeping up to a maximum of 30 people - 15 in each house) set in a 72 acre oasis. In addition to the chef-equipped gourmet kitchens, and well-appointed indoor spaces, the outdoor facilities include hiking trails, full size tennis court, horseshoe pit, beach volleyball court, kayaking, paddle boat, a life size chess board set, a salt-water pool, and a built in fire-pit between the two houses, perfect for singing around the campfire. Wildlife is always in abundance, from a wide variety of native birds, deer and the occasional fox.

Accommodations between the two houses: The Ranch House consists of three floors of living space sleeping up to 15 people: 4 large bedrooms (1 with King beds plus sofa bed, 1 with King bed plus twin and trundle, and 2 with Queen beds - and 2 air beds accommodate 3 more sleepers), 2.5 bathrooms, (plus outdoor shower) large kitchen dining and living areas with two story stone fireplace, top of the line appliances such as a Thermador range/oven, two flat-screen HDTVs, a large game/media room w/foosball and air-hockey, a small home gym, ping-pong table, and a huge outdoor deck with an outdoor fireplace perched 20 feet above the ground amid the treetops overlooking Onion Creek just twenty yards away.

The Australian Bungalow, 50 yards from the Ranch House, sleeps up to 15 people. This single story house consists of 4 large bedrooms (2 with King beds, one with a King bed plus twin and trundle, and one with 2 bunk beds with 2 trundles), a small single bedroom with twin bed, 3 full bathrooms, large kitchen dining and living areas with a stone fireplace, a huge covered outdoor deck with outdoor fireplace and sweeping views through the trees beyond the pool to the nearby creek.

Gorgeous, spacious retreat for Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 13, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We have stayed in many rental properties, but this one tops them all! We rented the property for my and my husband's extended family to stay in for our son's wedding weekend in Dripping Springs. The pictures of the home and property can only partly convey the luxury and size of the property. Our party of 24 covering 4 generations had plenty to do, including hiking, kayaking, biking, tennis, and many trips to the grocery store, as we had the Rehearsal and Rehearsal dinner on the property - and the setting was magical under the large oak trees (we hung 70 paper lanterns lit by LED lights from the trees -- breathtaking!) . Everything was perfect. The kitchens were well stocked with cooking and eating utensils, and the beds were very comfortable. There was PLENTY of room for everyone to have their space, but then also to get together and chat over meals at the large dinning room table. And the kitchen in the main house was large enough that 5 people could comfortably work in there at one time. Mel and Dave were very easy to work with, and answered my endless questions. We would stay here again in a heart beat and we recommend anyone who is having a hill country wedding to rent TIngari Ranch for their family/guests.
Owner's Response: Beth - thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are happy that you and your family enjoyed the ranch; you were excellent guests and we would be thrilled to have you back in the future.

Wonderful Getaway!

  • Submitted: Aug 7, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We celebrated my parents' 50th anniversary at Tingari, with 28 of us, all ages of kids and adults, ages 2-71. What a great place! Bring NO cooking gear they have it all! The pool is bigger and roomier than it looks online. The houses are more luxurious than the pics. Everywhere you look there's another place to relax, eat, talk, grab a quiet moment, and grill. Our kids and teens were never bored. I would highly recommend this place.
Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Tingari Ranch; we would love to have you back for future getaways to the beautiful Texas Hill Country!

Wonderful Thanksgiving Stay

  • Submitted: Dec 18, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
Our thanksgiving week at Tingari Ranch was fantastic. I don't think it could have been any more perfect. The most precious part of the week was that I got to celebrate a big birthday with my three children, their spouses, my ten grandchildren and the wife of one grandchild and the fiancee of another in such beautiful surroundings. Nineteen of us were all very comfortable in the two lovely houses. We all got to enjoy the outdoors, hiking, bike riding, sitting around a lovely fire outside in the evening and just being together. We even had a photographer come out and take family pictures in the lovely setting. It was one of our best family vacations.

Magical Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
I rented out Tingari Ranch as a place for my out of town guests to sleep while in town for my wedding. Despite the pouring rain, we had an amazing weekend. The covered patio saved the day allowing us to have a beautiful dinner outdoors while it rained outside. The rooms were comfortable and beautiful. The kitchen and living spaces were furnished and stocked with the highest quality furniture and appliances. We had every comfort both inside and out of the house. All our guests were impressed and wanted to return. When the sun did peak it's head out, we enjoyed the breathtaking natural surroundings. We hired a yoga teacher and had a class under the trees, which was one of the highlights of the weekend. I highly recommend Tingari Ranch. Mel and Dave were also great to work with and helped us sort out all the little details of our stay. We hope to return soon!
Owner's Response: Michele - so pleased Tingari Ranch met all your needs for your wedding guests on your special weekend. Congratulations and good luck to you as you begin your married life, and we'd be thrilled to have you and your family/friends back for future stays!

Map

A beautiful secluded ranch just 35 minutes from Austin, nestled in an ancient valley where Tonkawa Indians camped on the banks of Onion Creek. Amid a typical Texan hill-country landscape of rolling hills, spring-fed creeks, abundant wildlife and majestic views, Tingari Ranch Retreat is just 3 miles from the small bustling town of Dripping Springs, known for generations as 'The Gateway to the Hill Country'. Dining and music can be found in Dripping Springs, including the famous Salt Lick Bar-B-Que Restaurant, and the Nutty Brown Cafe with its large outdoor live music venue. For more variety, take the 35 minute drive into downtown Austin and enjoy all that the Live Music Capital of the World has to offer. Shopping and more dining can be found up the road in Wimberley; other area attractions such as the San Marcos Outlet Malls and the LBJ ranch are also within a half-hour's drive.
