One of a kind!!

  • 5 of 5

This property and the owners, Chris and Gary are truly "one of a kind!" From the moment you step foot into this house and then out to the back deck, you are mesmerized by the tranquil beauty and charm they have created! Pictures do not do it justice.

The water is amazing and I particularly loved the american flag waving on the dam wall. My kids are16 and 21 and we all agreed it was the best place we have ever stayed! It lacked absolutely nothing!

Thank you Chris and Gary for sharing your home with us and making us feel so welcome! We will be back.

Lori, Colton, Maddie and Jessi. 💖

Wonderful tranquil spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the property. The house was perfect in every way. Beautifully decorated and unlike most rental properties it had everything you could ever need. The spot on Bluff Creek really is one of the most beautiful, peaceful areas I have ever had the opportunity to experience.

The outdoor decks were awesome and the ability to use grills/smokers was a treat. We also had a great fire one evening that was built for us on our arrival.

We spent countless hours on the dock and swim deck enjoying the quiet and the noise of the water going over the spillway.

Water was wonderful and clear and we managed to catch a few catfish when we were hanging out.

The visits from the dogs and cat were a welcome treat when they decided to stop in.

We are looking forward to coming back again to experience

Perfect Hill Country getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Chris' home is impeccably appointed with everything you need. Every detail is thought of in advance. The quality of the home and attention to detail are wonderful

to admire when you're not fixated on the immediate surroundings. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend.

Chris could not have been any more kind and the dogs are a joy, also.

The water ...oh, the water.

  • 5 of 5

The water, the water, the was absolutely pristine and beautiful. As mentioned by others, Min Paradis is a hidden gem in a remote location surrounded by the gorgeous hill country scenery, that would have its own beauty in each season. The house is filled with interesting things and is comfortable for a small family or small group, however, it only sleeps 4-6 if the foldout couch is okay. But who going to be inside anyway.

So Heavenly

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to unwind and be surrounded by beauty - both nature's and the cabin itself. I loved the remote location and would gladly go back at the drop of a hat. Chris is so lovely - we don't think we would share a treasure like "min paradis". I have been visiting the Hill Country all my life but this location is the most beautiful part of Texas I've ever seen.

Absolutely Perfect!

Chris, your house is beautiful. We kept discovering magical things in every corner inside and out. The peace and quiet were just what we all needed. It was the perfect way to end spring break and we can't wait to come back!
