Good but could have been great!
This house is amazing. The pictures don't exactly do it justice. We did have a few issues when we first arrived. First, all of the lights in the kitchen and the microwave would not work, the guest house hot water was ice cold comma and the water pressure in the main house was horrible. I voiced my concerns that night and April was a very nice to let me know that someone would be out the following day to attend to the issues. Someone did come out the next day and fixed all the issues. From there our Labor Day was a success and the house was beautiful. The views were spectacular. I would definitely go back.
We reserved this property one year ago. I kept looking at the photos in-visioning our family sitting on the back deck. It all came true PRICELESS! The weather was fantastic the stars were so bright at night. We did not want to leave this gorgeous home. We did venture out to the Leaning Pear and shopping both fantastic.
Our check-in process was smooth Michelle, was helpful and recommend places to eat and shop. We drop of the key upon our departure and promise the ladies we will be back. I am planning a girls get-a-away next time.
House on the Hill
The views were spectacular; however, beware...we found a scorpion in the kitchen and a coral snake in the pool. This made people very leery of where they were. Also the sliding door by the livingroom didn't lock.
We did have some issues, the master shower wasn't draining properly and the gas grill by the casita had charcoal, even though it had the tank clearly seen.
The company should make sure everything is working properly before they rent out this house. They should also consider adding blinds in the livingroom. As hot as it was outside, we had to turn down the a/c in order to cool the upstairs bedroom.
Scorpions are common in the hill Country with the 100 plus degrees temperatures that we have been experiencing it excaberbates the problem as the scorpions are searching for water much like all the other insects and critters. We exterminate our properties on a regular basis to keep this particular issue to a minimum.
The sliding glass door is located on the second floor and has no outside access to it and are glad to have found out about so we could correct the problem and it is now in good working order.
We did get one maintenance call from this guest during their stay regarding a drain problem in the master bathroom and promptly sent our maintenance person to take care of it.
Unfortunately the guest did not inform us or our maintenance person about any other issues at the property; if they had we would have responded as promptly as we did with the drain issue.
My family and I have lived here for over ten years and I have never seen a Coral Snake. We do have Scarlet King snakes which are very similar to a Coral Snakes. The old saying goes red and yellow “kill a fellow” (Coral snake) red and black “friendly Jack” this is the Scarlet King Snake.
Casa Escondida is located on one of the highest hills in Wimberley. The living room is situated to capture the gorgeous views. The owners prefer not to hide the magnificent, panoramic views. Every bedroom in this home has window coverings of either blinds or drapes to provide guest privacy. We sincerely wish that our guests had contacted us with their concerns.
