Overview

Texas Hill Country Estate Rental Photos and Description

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.

Nasty /Total disappointment expensive lession learned.

  • 1 of 5

The place has a lot nice features, but not very well kept.The main home is old and the cleaning is a joke, my wife did a lot of cleaning just so we could stay. We cleaned the place when we arrived fridge included . Looking under the bed old socks, dust, and old toys. Thank God we brought our on bedding and towels. We had to do a load of laundry before we dare use the supplied linens.The hot tub didn't work and the pool was dirty. The A/C in the main house didn't cool very well, and the cable didn't work on the T.V. 1/2 the time. The outside gas grill is broken. The other grill was dirty and I didn't want to use either one. The whole area was nasty with old spilled drinks in the outside fridge. This could be a nice place but for now NO! If you are looking for a party house maybe. Not for a relaxing get a way. Lesson learned lost a customer !!!!

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

Great place for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Coffee Grounds. We were looking for an extended weekend getaway, and this was just what we wanted. It wasn't quite pool weather while we were there in mid-March, but we were still able to use the grill a couple nights and enjoy some time outside. When we did want to venture out a little, the house was in a good location, close by lots of things. We would definitely recommend this property!

Wonderful stay at the Coffee Grounds in Buda Texas

  • 5 of 5

Six of us, plus a 2 year old, were in Austin for wedding. We rented the Coffee Grounds so we could enjoy time together and relax. We came from Illinois and Plano and Frisco Texas. The Coffee Grounds are comfortable, homey, and a great place to enjoy time with family and friends. Jeff Coffee is a wonderful host, and ready to provide for your every need. The hot tub is wonderful!! Thanks Jeff for sharing your home with us! Donna from Itasca, IL

Great Relaxing Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time staying the "Coffee Grounds". The hot tub was perfect at night, and the backyard is like an oasis. The location was perfect for us. My only criticism is i wish i had realized you needed to request the pool be turned on ahead of time, since it takes a few days to heat and it is an added cost.

Fabulous Family Rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property! It was very clean, full of games and books and little things you might overlook in packing (like spices!), and spacious enough for our large family to spread out. While we were incredibly unlucky when it came to the weather (late December with storms), the pool and hot tub area were beautiful and the hot tub was plenty warm and well lit to enjoy in any weather. I highly recommend staying here.
