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

A place to relax and recoup in Buda

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of The Coffee Grounds. It worked out perfectly for all our pre-wedding trips, the girls hair date, and the wedding itself at the Hummingbird House. The cats on site were perfect escorts to and from the pool house and only tried to get in on the close to freezing night's. The beds were comfortable. The house itself could be better insulated as the drop in temperature made the living room a sweater wearing must. We had to have Jeff come over to fix the one toilet in the house as it stopped flushing. Luckily there are 2 toilets in the poolhouse, but it was a chilly dance to get down there, especially at night. Jeff was quick to get it repaired the next day.

This was a nice place to stay, but recommend coming in the early summer when it's getting warmer and you could use the pool and bbq area and wouldn't have to worry about keeping warm inside. We'd like to come back this summer to visit some wineries, cideries, and distrleries in the area and get in some pool and barbecue time! Thanks Jeff!

Perfect Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed 3 nights as a Christmas getaway. The property is well laid out and we loved having the pool house bed/bath to use as it offered privacy and space to our party of 6. The beds and linens were very comfortable - something I can't say about many other vacation rentals - we were very happy to have a good nights rest and the main house has 2 king beds -

a rare find! Jeff was a wonderful host, super nice and very attentive to anything we needed. The property is right down the road from a CVS, which was very convenient when we realized we forgot a few things and had to run out to grab them. Tucked back off the main road, we had privacy and that amazing hill country feel we all love. Jeff allowed us to bring our dogs along as well, which was so wonderful as we consider them part of the family. We couldn't be happier to have found Coffee Grounds. Looking forward to coming back in the summer when we can use the beautiful pool!

Great place to stay and loved the seclusion!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while in Austin for our son's wedding. It was so nice to have a place away from it all and with great amenities! Especially loved the pool and hot tub! The owner - Jeff - was so quick to respond to any questions we had and made our trip feel like we were staying at home! The bride-to-be, her sister and the moms came by on wedding day just so they could get away from the hotel and have some room to get ready! I bet they were wishing they could have stayed at the house instead of the hotel! I also loved that we had a big kitchen with room to store our items from the grocery store and a large refrigerator! And the outdoor BBQ area was awesome - it would be great for a party but we still enjoyed sitting out there with our small group! It only takes two to have a party! The property is also very close to stores so anything you might have forgotten are not far away! I would highly recommend "The Coffee Grounds" to anyone looking at staying in or near Austin and wanting to still be near it all! We would have loved to stay a little longer and just relax!
