About Shiloh Collins

Phil and Peggy Collins bought this property in December 2015. They purchased their first home on the Blanco River ( The Great Escape ) about 10 years ago, and it is only about 1/4 mile away. On average, they have added about one new luxury home per year since then. They live in Wimberley for the majority of the year, and spend the hotter months at their home in Colorado ( Above The Clouds ). They make these homes nice for their own use, and for their guests as well. The secret to their success is by providing large homes that sleep lots of people, but all on acreage for privacy, and then providing multiple areas that allow the guests to spread out, and not all be underfoot.

Shiloh Collins purchased this house in 2015

Why Shiloh Collins chose Wimberley

This property was purchased for the view, the privacy provided by 33 acres, and a really cool large home. It is ideal for entertaining, with many areas that allow your group to spread out ( front porch view, back porch view, hot tub, game room, 3 fireplaces, etc, etc, etc ).

What makes this house unique

360 degree views, a cooling wind always blowing at the top of the hill, high end luxury, a great game room, Open format kitchen and living room, and every convenience that you need to make this a successful outing for your family, friends, or corporate group. Every item in the house was purchased new in June 2016, so this is not leftovers from someone's house.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply stunning! The photos only give you an idea of how wonderful it is. Every room in the house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Every detail has been thought of.

Both the front porch with rocking chairs overlooking the hills or the pool and outdoor grill area in the back yard are very quiet and relaxing. The location feels remote and peaceful, but is only a few minutes from downtown Wimberley.

My extended family of 14 adults and children thoroughly enjoyed staying here. There was more than enough room for everyone and the kids enjoyed having their own room upstairs and loved the game room and pool! I would definitely stay here again.

Mixed Review

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic view, peaceful and quiet, plenty of wildlife, extremely enjoyable, great get-away home. A couple of things did occur which did not stop us from having fun, however we did have a ceiling leak in master bedroom between the left nightstand and the bed, the pool did not have a light that worked and not enough light above the grill area. Great property ! Thanks...

The perfect family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Our family; us, kids, spouses, and 7 grandchildren, (15 total) stayed for one week at this home. It was too short. The home is beautiful, spacious, and perfectly equipped for large gatherings. The game room is like going to a mini arcade. Perfect for the rainy day we had. There was something for the whole family.

The backyard is sooooooo FUN! Pool, large hot tub, fire pit, and outdoor kitchen. We used it all! It is a family paradise.

From every single window in the home there is a breathtaking view. It is a true testament of God's blessings in his creation.

The community was full of great adventures for all ages and then you come back to this beautiful home.

Needless to say, it was PERFECT! We are already planning next summer's get away and we hope to stay here!.

No need to pack a lot, EVERYTHING is here! You really feel like you are home!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family selects a home in Texas for a long weekend each year to reconnect with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We are a group from the age of 4 all the way to 75. We found Grand View to be perfect for our large family of 18. Upstairs provided a peaceful retreat from some of the teenagers or adults needing a nap and the downstairs master was great for the older couple who couldn't use the stairs. The pool is awesome -spent the entire time by the pool and lounging on the chairs. The shallow "kiddy" pool was perfect for the very active 4 year old. We didn't use the river much as the Blanco was running low but we went to Wimberely for the morning and did some shopping while the others stayed behind to use the awesome game room. The teenagers were very entertained in the game room and the adults could enjoy themselves in the rest of the house without the noise. The hill going up to the house was a challenging run for some of us who wanted some exercise. We can't say enough of the view. Incredible. Great beds, towels, kitchen amenities, we had it all. Outdoor firepit, hot tub. Again, we couldn't ask for more. Thank you!

Great country getaway. Wish it was my home!

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautiful! It’s located close to town but you won’t want to go anywhere! The only think I can knock is the knives aren’t sharp. Took a long minute to cut lime for our drinks. Other than that, we wanted to stay longer and soak up this little slice of heaven! Shiloh has done a great job in creating a place that visitors can escape the mess of every day life. We are sad our trip is over.

Great time with close friends

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome home for a handful of friends gathering to celebrate the end of school for our kiddos. The property is ideally perched for great views and cool breezes, especially on the front porch. The amenities are perfect for families looking for a change of pace complete with fun and relaxation. The property manager was super helpful as well! Looking forward to the next visit.
