Overview

Comfort House Rental Photos and Description

Bed & Breakfast in detached casitas (1 or 2 bedrooms)

Enjoy the ultimate privacy and seclusion of one of two, en-suite casitas on this beautiful ranch in en-suite casitas (note: we do NOT permit weddings or other events). Dogs/cats are never permitted, so you needn't worry about pet allergies. We respectfully ask that you strictly observe our no-pet policy for the benefit of our non-pet-owning guests.

The casitas we rent are semi-attached, connected by a breezeway/covered porch. There are substantial covered porches and another 2000+ square feet flagstone deck surrounding the pool. The setting is the center of an 80 acre ranch, on a ridge with 30+ mile views to the east, south and west. You simply won't believe the views.

The casitas open toward the enormous 60,000 gallon pool with double screened doors throughout. One casita can be rented with either 1 or 2 bedrooms with a shared 3/4 bath (sleeps up to 2 persons per room). There are a total of 3 bedrooms available for rent.

Relax in the huge courtyard pool area and massive outdoor stone fireplace. You will be in awe of the spectacular 360° views of the Texas Hill Country - so much so that day excursions away from this beautiful place will interfere!

Enjoy watching sunrises over the pool and beautiful, panoramic vistas.

Alexandra Ranch is surrounded by Texas Hill Country's renowned wineries and antique shops. However, we strongly recommend that for short (e.g., 2 day visits) you make Alexandra Ranch your only destination. Once you arrive, you'll understand.

The pool deck and casitas are on one level with no steps.

Why Mark and Sandra - Owners chose Texas Hill Country

Fantastic location, unbelievable views, total privacy and seclusion with everything included for a relaxing holiday getaway.

What makes this house unique

Alexandra Ranch combines luxury with a rustic hill country flair in the Texas wine country. Most of the best-known wineries are within 20 miles of the property.

Absolutely no weddings, large events, bachelor/bachelorette parties or the like are permitted at this exclusive, private residence.

Because we are not a wedding or event venue, we do not accommodate more than 6 persons (2 persons per bedroom, up to 3 bedrooms).

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the most beautiful estate in the most beautiful part of the Texas Hill Country, hands down. We came with 4 other couples and had an absolutely wonderful time around the pool, jogging the perimeter of the ranch, and just relaxing. We will definitely come back again and again.

Great spot to disconnect from city life!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the ranch. We were a little disappointed that the casita was only one bedroom (the site led us to believe it was larger), but it worked out just fine. The scenery was beautiful and the hosts were incredibly hospitable. Great spot for anyone looking to get away from it all! We hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the 5 star review and for staying with us. When you come back, feel free to ask for the second bedroom for your child. As you know, we didn't charge extra for him anyway!

Very spectacular

  • 5 of 5

It was one of our favorite vacations. Chef George and his wife Mary were awesome. The property was very clean and it was very relaxing .... we stayed at the house and enjoyed the swimming pool. I would recommend this property to everyone. The only time we left the property was to go get groceries. We would make this our annual vacation spot, but we can't take our dog.

Beautiful, relaxing, perfect

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a weekend getaway to re-unite high school friends. The architecture and decor of the house is so beautiful that you need no other entertainment. My husband and I admired it's beauty all weekend long. Our kids enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and outdoor fireplaces with s'mores. Best of all, however, is the view. We enjoyed the finest of the Hill Country from so many angles. We will definitely come back! The only areas of improvement would be to have more bath towels available or have the laundry rooms stocked with detergent and to have the kitchen better equipped with foil, ziplock bags, large serving bowls. But honestly the place is amazing.

The ultimate destination and retreat. Experience the seclusion and views - your first and lasting impression. For 2016, we are offering one or both of the two-bedroom casitas. There is no cooking in the casitas and no refrigerators in the rooms - these are bedrooms only. Access to the main house is limited to breakfast service. For an extra charge, we can provide a food-inclusive experience. Guests are welcome to use the outdoor grills.

The casitas are separate buildings connected to the owners' home which sits on 80 acres (high-fenced and gated) atop a ridge between Boerne and Fredericksburg (an hour from San Antonio). Leave the interstate and meander through Sisterdale and old German ranches to this hilltop compound. Enter through 200 year old Spanish Colonial doors to a veritable private resort.

In 2016, we will not be renting the main home. We will rent one or both of the casitas which sleep up to 4 persons each (8 total). Rent one or both. Breakfast is included and arrangements are available for option, food-inclusive stays.

Other Activities: walking/hiking without leaving the property, pool.

Golf: Comfort public course - 9 miles

Wine country: Alexandra Ranch is well located just a hop, skip and a jump from the Highway 290 Wine Trail. Dozens of the Hill Country's most visited wineries are within a 20 mile radius of the ranch. Private wine tour transportation services are available from third-party service providers (not connected with Alexandra Ranch LLC).
