About Michael Easterling

We have enjoyed our Hill Country getaway for the past 7 years. The rest of the world will melt away as soon as you see the beautiful Hill Country scenic views, either from the expansive decks or from any room. We have a few favorite spots we like to sit and enjoy the colorfully generous sun rise and sun sets. Come find yours at our beautiful Point of View.

Why Michael Easterling chose Texas

The view and the serenity was why we chose this home.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We have decks and sitting areas at many levels all around the home and property. The deck on the second level (main level) goes 360 degrees around the house with amazing views you have to see to believe. It is a 'cool' spot in the dog days of summer as it sits just about tree level and almost always has a good breeze. Even our rare rainy days can be a pleasure from this vantage point.

The outdoor kitchen and dining space are my personal favorites as they have their own unique view of the hills over our terraced garden.

Or you can relax in the hammock (my wires favorite) at the secluded smaller mid-level deck tucked into the trees.

Remote but convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Point of View! The house is beautiful and so spacious. The outdoor areas and the views were spectacular! While the house is in a remote location to afford itself to plenty of peace & quite, it is also nicely located for day trips to surrounding towns! We made trips to Fredericksburg, Johnson City, San Antonio and of course, Boerne. All were within an hour or less driving time. In the afternoon, we would return and enjoy a wonderful dinner on the deck. We did not want to leave and definitely plan to return!

Relaxation Oasis

  • 4 of 5

The house is amazing! The pictures don't do it justice. Mornings sitting on the 2nd floor deck with coffee and enjoying the breeze to watching shooting starts lying on the 1st floor deck are some of my best memories from our weekend. All of us (it was a group of 7 girls for my bachelorette weekend) ooo'ed and ahhh'ed over how fantastic the house is. Definitely a great place to stay for relaxation and escaping to nature!!

We absolutely loved our stay at the property! It was a beautiful, spacious home, with gorgeous views, and a sweet sweet cat, who's company we loved! We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing, & luxurious place to stay in the hill country. Perfect distance from town.

The home was better than expected and comfortable for our group of ten!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, and well stocked with things we didn't even remember we would need, the view was breathtaking in every direction, and even in July in south Texas, there was always a cool breeze which allowed us to enjoy the outdoor space throughout the day. The sky at night was as clear as I've seen since I was a child.

The location feels private and remote, yet it is close enough to drive to Boerne to grab things if needed from Walmart or HEB, it's and less than 10 minutes to Bandera to enjoy the Medina River!

We loved that the home was pet friendly, and the large garage stayed cool enough we could keep our dogs in their kennels when we were gone. The top deck also has gates that lock so you can keep your dogs safely on the deck with you and not worry about them wondering off. The only thing I wished were different was the fenced in yard. I had planned to let the dogs stay in it and play some but the lot has a pretty steep incline so we had to get creative when taking them to potty, etc.

Overall, the stay was amazing, the owners were great to work with, and we will stay here again! We are already talking about coming back in the fall.

a True Hill Country Gem

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over a summer weekend with friends for a birthday party, and we couldn't have been more happy with the property. The home itself was very well maintained/clean and comfortably fit all eight of us. The vast beautiful view of the hill country was easily our favorite aspect of the home, along with the downstairs patio, which had a very nice outdoor grill/bar (equipped with a stereo system to plug your music into!) and fire pit setup. The property is also in a very convenient location - about 10 miles from downtown Bandera where we went to go float the Medina River. There is also a Dollar General just down the road, which was nice when we needed to pick up last minute necessities. I would highly recommend staying here, and plan to do so again soon!

Best Views Available of the Texas Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

You won't find a place better than this. Michael and Caren are great hosts and have created the perfect vacation spot. The endless porches all contain amazing views and are even better with the fire pit and stars above. The property is perfect for a hike up the hill or just relaxing outside. The entire family can feel like they are away from everything or take a very short drive to Bandera or the river. The inside of the home is perfect and is big enough for me to even survive our stay which included the in-laws. My kids did not want to go home and entire family had a great time. STAY HERE... You won't regret it.
