This was my husband and I's first choice when deciding on a venue for our wedding. We both have a love for architecture and design and this contemporary home with the outdoor space in the hill country was the perfect setting for what we envisioned. We both love the outdoors and that is where we spend much of our time, so it made sense to get married outside at sunset with an outdoor party following. I will admit that I was concerned about the distance from Austin, because a majority of our guests were coming from not only out of town, but out of state, plus we wanted people to enjoy themselves and not have to worry about drinking and driving. Therefore we chartered buses, and as far as we heard they worked out flawlessly. This was my biggest concern, but all the feedback was positive. Many of our friends and family had funny stories from their bus trips that made the entire experience more memorable. The owners were wonderful to work with, very accommodating to any special requests we made and they were a pleasure to work with. The property was in perfect condition and it was seamless for our rental company, catering company and band to load in and out. Our guests all raved about the location and will not soon forget the event. It is such a unique venue that your event will definitely be memorable. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone for not only events but a fun getaway. It made our wedding so special and unique and we would not change a thing. We look forward to using this venue again and again for romantic getaways to our future anniversary parties. The owners were excellent to work with and the venue was a spectacular locale.

The Plant at Kyle is an absolutely wonderful place. The structures and setting would be enough but then on top of those it is beautifully furnished in a way that perfectly fits the surroundings. FULLY stocked kitchen makes meals easy and a joy for group cooking. They haven't missed a detail - from plenty of indoor and outdoor chairs, to towels for the pool to dishes and glassware for 20. Wonderful covered pool is a blast for all ages. And the sleeping accommodations are laid out in a way that creates privacy for everyone staying overnight. We arrived to find small vases of wildflowers on the dining table, in the kitchen and other areas - a lovely touch. The caretakers are very responsive and helpful. This is a place not to be missed.
Mark and the host team made the stay so inviting. They have been the best hosts I've had by far. The home is beautifully maintained and has all the expected amenities and more. The indoor/ outdoor setting was better than I could have imagined or expected. It made our weekend so relaxing and unforgettable. It is so rare to be able to rent a home like this and be hosted so well. Highly recommended.
Every year we get together with two other families for a few days in the summer. Staying at the Plant was great for our group. The house is split into three very distinct bedroom spaces which worked well for each family to have their defined private space. Most of the kids (ranging from ages 2-13) slept together in the Living Room.
It is an unique and beautiful home that keeps you connected with the outdoors. Most of our time was spent on the porch and in the pool. It was a memorable experience that was the perfect setting for our families to get together.
My family and I took a short trip to the plant, let me tell you we left wishing we had booked more days. The property is beautiful and the pool was amazing very clean also. All that you need is there (shampoo,condiments etc.) we loved our stay and would be returning soon. Quick tip watch out for the critters especially at night. Overall a great experience. Thank you Mark for letting us stay at the plant. We had a lot of fun.
Our stay at the Plant (our 6th year doing so) was fantastic as always. The property keeps getting better. It is clean, well maintained, secluded and quiet. We could not recommend the property more highly.
Located between the charming Hill Country towns of Kyle and Wimberley, The Plant at Kyle is 30 miles from downtown Austin, easily accessible by either I-35 or Mopac.
