About Carrie

I love to take care of people as they enjoy their time off!! I own and manage properties in 3 cities- Austin, Wimberley, New Orleans, and have owned this business since 2008.

Carrie purchased this house in 2012

Why Carrie chose Texas Hill Country

The property has a very peaceful feel to it, I wanted it as soon as I first saw it; it took me 5 yrs to get it, but i did it!!! I love log homes, its 4.5 acres, very close to Wimb Square. 2 homes on lot. Can sleep max 12 in other house vrbo # 411429, 4 people in this one.

What makes this house unique

secluded wooded lot, peacocks on lot, very close to beautiful swimming hole, and has a shared pool.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Cute, quiet cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit. Carrie was very responsive. It was really quiet. It probably helped that there was no one was staying in the other house on the property. There were only two of us so the placement of the bathroom wasn't an issue. We also brought our golden retriever and he loved it.

Wonderful retreat for people and dogs.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for just over 6 weeks as we were purchasing a home in the area. The cabin is very comfortable and functional. We were staying with our big dog and having 1/3 of an acre fenced area that connected to the house and was separate from the larger parcel (4.5 acres) proved to be very convenient. It's a very quiet and tranquil place to stay. The view out and down the hill is really special. Petey the peacock is around often sunning himself adding an elegant dimension to the property. Internet is functional but not very fast... but you can stream Netflix ok with slightly lower resolution (my only real complaint). The saltwater swimming pool is maintained weekly and although not heated was really nice until the cold snap hit.

A great place to stay if you have a dog and just want a quiet place to relax away from it all!

The Peacock House is Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Peacock House was wonderful. My daughter, two grandkids, and I enjoyed four magical nights there. The cabin was spotlessly clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The beds were great and sheets so soft. Carrie was so easy to work with and her staff Albert and his wife checked on us soon after we arrived. We had no problems during our time there. The cabin stayed more than cool enough for us even in the August heat and there were oscillating fans in the bedrooms. We loved having a private pool right across the drive from our cabin. The kids spent most of their time in the pool when weren't out and about. I enjoyed the pool too! So refreshing. I fell in love with Wimberley and have tucked it away in my mind as a possibility for retirement. We will definitely return to explore more of the Hill Country and for another stay at Carrie's property. We recommend at least a day at the Blue Hole Regional Park, shopping downtown Wimberley, taking in the beautiful views either driving or hiking, and some great restaurants. We enjoyed Milagro's Mexican Restaurant (they make their own Salsa fresh daily) and the food was really good. The Leaning Pear is great and don't miss out on the Sugar Shack! On our last day, we stopped by the Wimberley café for lunch and it was good downhome cooking. The Peacock House is the perfect place to shake off some stress and relax with family or friends.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in wimberly!

The cottage was perfect for us. Carrie had everything you need just bring your food, drinks and clothes! The cabin was very clean and area was peaceful.

The pool was great too. The first night we had fun with the family next door. Petey the peacock greeted us daily. We would highly reccomend this property and we can't wait to go back!
