Overview

About the property

Tucked away on 5 acres near Austin, this property offers the best of all worlds!

Once our family’s land, this family property has been developed into a relaxing, rural retreat that has both vintage flair and modern amenities. This 5-acre compound features expansive outdoor patios and wooden decks, outdoor kitchen and BBQ smoker, a two bedroom house and a one-bedroom pool house suite surrounding a tranquil pool and waterfall spa. There is also a 1200 sq. ft. party barn available with event rentals.

With native landscaping, old growth live oak trees, abundant wildlife including rabbits, deer, raccoons and more, the rustic charm of the venue will inspire you. The property, with its solar heated pool and beautiful outdoor spaces makes a great retreat throughout the year! The solar keeps the pool comfortable from early March through October, unless it is an unusually cold spring or fall.

Located just west of Buda, this property makes the perfect venue for hosting your wedding, reception, rehearsal dinner, family reunion or other events with a comfortable, laidback Texas Hill Country feel. When booking an overnight stay in conjunction with an event rental, you can eliminate the pressure of having to prepare/decorate and break everything for your event in one day, since you would have the property for the duration of your stay. Look at the satellite photo of the property to get a sense of its scale and beauty of this compound.

Please ask about prices for hosting events, since there are limits on the number of people allowed on the property for standard vacation rentals. All events with more than 10 people must be approved in writing prior to booking and all event rules and restrictions must be followed. There are two loving cats on the property. Please check with owner before booking, if you or your guests have cat allergies.

Looking forward to another stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a great stay. There were 3 of us down for the MotoGP at COTA. There was plenty of room in the kitchen, I made a big breakfast every morning. The hot tub was great every night. It was very quiet and secluded. The beds were firm and comfy. We had some great food in downtown Buda (Clevelands). Jeff (the owner) was very nice. We didn't make use of it but I got the impression that any time we had any needs, issues, questions, etc. Jeff was ready to help.

The only part of the trip that I wished was different was that we spent so much time at the track we didn't get to enjoy the property more. Next time I'm hoping to take a few more days to lounge around the pool and make use of the outdoor kitchen BBQ area.

One of our party was used to hotels and their "everything is new" feel. It is an older home. That said it was very clean and everything worked fine.

A full sized washer and dryer is a great perk, especially for swim clothes. The kitchen was well stocked (with dishes and utensils) and roomy to work with. The third member of our party snores like a badly tuned Harley so being able to have him on the opposite side of the property in the pool house was great. There was a big TV in the main room that we popped a media player onto for some post race GP watching (It had DVD and cable as well). We were able to hook our phones up to the outdoor speaker system and enjoy music while in the hot tub and pool.

The pictures on the website were what sold us on the place and I would say they were spot on. Everything was just as I expected from the pics or better.

Thanks for the great stay Jeff,

Steve

This property is amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 days and had a blast. Jeff the owner was a pleasure to deal with, when we needed something it took a text and less than 5 minutes . The outdoor kitchen was the hub for our crew, breakfast to dinner we lived out there. I highly recommend the Coffee Grounds . We plan on booking again next year . Thank you Jeff for the memories we were able to make!!!

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for a laid back family gathering... or a big party ! The house has the most beautiful (original I assume)hardwood floors and ceiling ...w/updated kitchen renovations. Outside is the pool my son lived in for 3 days & coolest outdoor kitchen/bar I have ever entertained from ... I cooked for about 14 people in approx. 30 min. on the monster grill ! Jeff is a great guy and we can't wait to get back... Even the 2 cats are the coolest ( and I hate most cats ) Our daughters graduation from TX State was ... perfect ...thank you Jeff !
