Nice, homey guest house

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was a real find for us. We appreciated the food that was left for us, the cleanliness of the place and the helpfulness of the owners. The setting was great - trees, birds, flowers, view of woods. Location was very helpful for the plans we had. We would happily stay there again in the future and highly recommend the facility.

Nice place with great hosts

  • 4 of 5

We found the property to be neat and clean. The hosts live on the property but give you space to enjoy your stay. The beds are comfortable and the hosts stock the house with the essentials. My only concern was that we found scorpions and lots of insects in the house. There actually was a scorpion near the bed in the smaller bedroom. We emailed the host to notify but didn't hear back. I would still recommend this rental; however, they may need to spray for insects... no one wants to share a bed with a scorpion:(

Owner's Response: OMG!! I am sooo sorry! We have a service that comes every month but at this time of year sometimes they are needed more often. I am on the phone NOW to have them come out. I never got your email or I would have responded PRONTO! I really appreciate the heads up. If you're in the area again come back and we will discount your stay... the least we can do ;)

Spacious, tastefully​ decorated, very clean house. Slept wonderful in King bed. We were visiting family so unfortunately not much time to sit in garden and watch squirrels and birds. Thanks nell!

Cozy, super clean, very convenient location!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay. This place is spotless and very cozy. Incredibly convenient location just outside of bee cave. The muffins were a great touch...we ate every last bite. Coffee maker was very in the breakfast area each morning was delightful! Covered garage spot was provided and was very convenient. Only issue we had was running out of hot water pretty quickly. The rain water shower head has high flow rate so don't leave the shower running unless you're in it. Otherwise it was extremely enjoyable and we will be planning to stay here on future trips to hill country. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely review and for the hot water info. It is important for us to know about it! I think we will have to look into changing out the current hot water heater for a bigger one. Glad you had a good stay ;)
