About Dino and Teresa

Dino and Teresa are extremely proud to offer our home for your enjoyment. We love this area of Texas and plan on retiring here one day away from the cold winters of Chicago. While we work towards our retirement goal - we look for you to share and enjoy our wonderful 'La Bella Villa'.

Dino and Teresa purchased this house in 2014

Why Dino and Teresa chose Texas Hill Country

It's not just us saying, but everybody that comes by loves this home. It is private but still close to tons of activities. You can simply relax in the pool at the property. Or you can enjoy everything the area provides - tubing, fishing, boating, hiking, shopping, golfing, hunting, exploring, music, restaurants, etc. - and at the end of the day, you will have this wonderful property waiting for you. We also love the location. We could enjoy cities like Austin or San Antonio (both about 1 hour away) or the quaint towns of Gruene, Wimberely, New Braunfels, Fredricksburg, etc. If you like shopping - the San Marcos outlets are close to you.

Bottom line - the home can adapt to your needs - and that's why we love it.

What makes this house unique

Home has truly a resort feel with private pool and spa.

Very nice.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property and the location. All of our needs were met, with the exception of the bed in the casita. Very hard and uncomfortable!

One area of the pool did have a bit of algae growing there as well. A few light bulbs were burned out.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us. On your next visit with us - please call with any corrections needed. We act on any needs immediately. Bulbs replaced. I informed the pool cleaning company and went out immediately. Bed firmness are a preference. We look forward to your next visit with us.

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with the most majestic views of the Texas hill country. The rental surpassed our expectations! The home is spacious with all the amenities one needs and few extras. Since there were 4 couples we also used the small separate "casita". We spent the majority of our time outside in the pool and surrounding deck. The pictures don't nearly do this place justice. The location was perfect for us since we chose to float the "horseshoe" both days. I can't wait to come back with the same group and hopefully with my family. Also of note, Dino was easy and wonderful to work with. Thanks again for sharing you lovely home.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our four day stay. Can't say enough good things about the house. The view alone was worth staying here but the house and pool are top notch. Our family had the most incredible time. We'll be booking this house again soon.

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property is well taken care of inside and out. Inside, there is a fully furnished kitchen and washer/dryer available. It did rain quite a bit during our stay but we still had a wonderful time and were able to all sit together for meals at a beautiful dining table that offered plenty of room to serve our family of 7. When it wasn't raining, we spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the shade (and fan) at the covered dinning/entertainment area. In this space there are outlets to plug in your electronic devices, a propane grill and a wood burning fireplace. The best part was the relaxing pool and hot tub, located only steps from the house, which was a blessing since my mom has a hard time getting around these days. Last but not least, the landscape is beautiful - we spotted several dear on property as well as a few road runners! The owners are great and provide all the information you need - everything was as expected, if not better. This was our second stay at this property and hopefully not our last!!
