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 an outdoor paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time during our stay. There is more outdoor amenities than you could imagine. There is no better way to watch football than on the outdoor tv next to the pool bar. The owner was very responsive, and did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable. We hope to come back soon!

Charming place with amazing pool and hot tub

  • 4 of 5

This was a great getaway during our work in city. It was nice to get back and have the hot tub to soak in. The beds were comfortable and kitchen nice, especially for the little bit of cooking we did. It could use a few more towels but the owner is very accommodating. Being nearby, on property, the owner was able to take care of the things that needed attention. He is a really nice guy and really wanted us to enjoy our stay. He had a great recommendation for dinner... if you like bbq, stop by the Salt Lick Barbecue in Driftwood.

Outdoor oasis with a friendly and responsive host

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an outdoor 'retreat' with a pool where our family could stay comfortably for a week. We found it. The pool and outdoor cooking area/cantina were a perfect way to relax and spend the majority of our time outside. The quonset hut was a bonus, with great history and style.

The house is an old wooden-floored 2/1 that suited us fine with comfortable beds, fast internet, washer/dryer, etc.

Jeff is a stellar host, he was always responsive and friendly. We hope to come back!
