About Randall Stout
I am involved in real estate in San Antonio and the surrounding area. I have lived in the San Antonio area for 20 plus years.
Randall Stout purchased this House in 2015
Why Randall Stout chose Spring Branch
The home was built in 2015 with this guest home designed specifically as a vacation rental. The home looks out to the Knibbe Ranch which is one of a few Century Ranches left in Texas. Century Ranches are family owned ranches that have been continually operating for over 100 years. The incredible views, the Guadalupe River below, constantly changing views with the season and the abundant wildlife make this a one of a kind property.
What makes this House unique
I am familiar with dining, entertainment, historical interests, art museums, places to see, parks, etc... in San Antonio and the entire Hill Country area. Please feel free to ask me anything as I am always available to answer any questions and concerns.

Lovely views....bring your binoculars!
We really enjoyed our stay...as city dwellers we don't get to see much wildlife, but from this rental we could see deer and wild turkeys...we had not brought binoculars but ran to the nearby Walmart and purchased some so we could see the wildlife more easily. There are also lots of pretty flowers and hummingbirds and other types of birds to see at this rental. The pool and hottub were very enjoyable. The rental was clean and well furbished. We came to get out of the city so we could relax and stargaze, and we did just that. We were even treated to a fireworks display from a nearby event on our last night! The owner was very helpful, and also very prompt about refunding the deposit. All in all, a nice experience.
By far this is one of the most beautiful private rentals we have been to. It is exactly like the pictures and honestly even more. This rental is perfect for a all year around vacation because of all the amenities it has to offer. Hot or cold, Rain or shine, you got plenty to enjoy. The pool, hot tub/spa, grill, pool table, indoor/outdoor space, covered balcony, fire pit, and to say the least it is stocked. You literally only need your clothes, food, and yourself! Location is extremely convenient since there are major grocery stores, restaraunts, and gas stations less than ten minutes away, but you are still secluded enough to feel like you are up in the Texas hills by yourself. You are also close to San Antonio and New Braunfels incase you are looking to do some fun activities like the caverns, wild life ranch, or other things. We stayed for 4 nights, but stayed in the whole time..its so peaceful and private we didn't see any one around. We really enjoyed our mornings watching the deer graze and even saw some by the pool. It was wonderful! Another big thing for us is that when you go on vacation booking has to be easy and smooth through the whole process... This has been the smoothest and most private rental experience we have had. The owner is absolutely amazing. His process made it so easy to book, response time was fast, we show up with a house manual ready for us, and he was available if we needed anything. I can just go on and on about this place and the owner, but you have to experience it for yourself. We are a family of four; two adults, grandmother, and a baby less than a year old and we had a wonderful time. It is also great for a couples retreat, family with teenagers, or just friends who want a getaway from it all. We will be back thats for sure.... I think we've found our forever family vacation home so BOOK IT fast before we beat you to it haha :)
Thank you Randall for letting us enjoy your amazing property. It really shows how beautiful and versatile Texas is. Take care!
The view, the amenities, the hospitality! Nothing could have been better. I will definitely be back!
Beautiful Views Made For a Relaxing Stay
After spending 4 nights my husband and I wished we would have booked for a longer stay. This property exceeded our expectations from the time we arrived and walked in the door. The view is amazing! Most of our time was spent sitting and enjoying being outside soaking up the sun, enjoying the hummingbirds and gazing out over the countryside. When we did venture out the location of this property made it easy to explore the Hill Country. It is within easy driving distance to the airport, downtown San Antonio, Boerne, Fredericksburg and other Hill Country towns & BBQ joints. Although it was just the two of us; this property would also be a great place for a family to stay. The downstairs rec room is wonderful and being able to access the pool, hob tub, fire pit etc. would be great for a family gathering. Randall has done an outstanding job to make sure your stay will be enjoyable. This has by far been one of our all time favorite places we have booked and we will be back! Thank you Randall for making our stay special!!! George & Lisa.
The perfect place to relax!
Perfect place for a family to have fun and relax! We loved watching the deer in the evenings. House was clean and had everything you would need. We had a great time and plan on returning!
Spectacular stay in the Hill Country
Amazing Home- even better than the photos. Randall is extremely responsive and thought of every little thing. Our two kids spent the vast majority of their time in the pool and hot tub, when they weren’t using the pool table. My husband and I started every day drinking coffee on the balcony and watching the deer go by. In a word, heavenly.
Use this location as your home base for all the activities the Hill Country, San Antonio and surrounding area have to offer.
