About this listing
This Private Hill country paradise is the perfect romantic getaway. Soak up the sun on the 2 person lounge bed surrounded by tropical palms & 40' diving pool. Relax in your private outdoor Jacuzzi and stargaze right off the porch of your cozy cabin
This is one of two rental units located at this location. Our philosophy for our Hill Country Getaway is that everyone needs some time to enjoy what life has to offer. The Italian philosophy of La Dolce Vita- should remind us that the important things are close at hand: a home cooked meal, a glass of wine, the company of friends and family.
We think of our guests as part of our extended family and hope that we can make them feel at home as possible, while at the same time- giving them space to enjoy the privacy of the TX Hill Country and the San Antonio area. We always leave some coffee, tea, and condiments for our guest’s use.. We provide robes for your use while you are here. The ice bin is full when you get here. There are extra DVD movies, books, and board games in case of a rainy or cold day.
OK- so here’s the basic property & amenity info:

There is another hot tub reserved for the exclusive use of the guests staying in the other rental unit and they have been provided a key to unlock the hot tub cover.

If guests desire to have exclusive and private access to these areas both units can be booked off and the property can accommodate up to 6 guests. If just 2 guests wish to book off this cabin and have "exclusive access" to property I have an exclusive rate of $250.00/night Please verify that both units are available for proposed date email me with an inquiry and I can send you a special offer that will allow you to book it as exclusive. This is only available if there are 2 guests- the upstairs unit will be locked off and guests will have exclusive access to all previously shared amenities- you will also be provided with key to unlock hot tub by pool. There are property managers that live onsite in 5th wheel- but they do not use the guest facilities, just maintain the pool and lawn.
Interaction with Guests
Property managers on site should any maintenance issues arise.
We are one of only three properties on our street, with over 5 acres between each house making it very quiet and peaceful. We are also far enough away from the city so that we are able to view the night sky with little light pollution. Perfect for enjoying night hot tubbing.
No, a car would be necessAry as there is no public transportation available.
No Pets. No smoking inside of cabin. Guests are expected to leave the dishes cleaned in the cabin and also to clean up after themselves should they utilize the pool cabana. Daily maid service is not provided. We ask that guests refrain from using glass at poolside (at the tables/lounges chairs -no problem) and while in the Jacuzzi. Plastic glasses are available in both the cabin and pool cabana. We also ask that guests not use the linens for makeup removal, makeup removal wipes are supplied for guest's convenience. We also provide a blow dryer, iron, and ironing board for guest's use.
This property was even better than described and the pictures do not do it justice. Every amenity that you could ever want or need is available. I hope to model my own backyard after the pool/cabana area. We will definitely try to get back here as we didn't have enough time to take advantage of everything this property had to offer. The only request we made of the host was for more propane for the grill on the front porch and Tony brought it promptly.
I cannot recommend this place enough. Our stay was perfect, the cabin and pool were perfect and Tamra could not be more helpful or friendly - a wonderful host. They have thought of everything. The cabin is in an ideal place to stay so peaceful/relaxing but then so close to San Antonio and the Hill Country. I wish we were able to spend more time at the cabin as it made an incredible end to our stay in Texas. So want to come back - as we didn't want to leave. We lost a necklace pendant which Tamra found and so very very kindly posted back to us in the UK. Come stay here you will not regret it. 10 out of 10. Thank you
The Owners Retreat is a very comfortable and well appointed cabin. The TV room was a bonus! The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals, and there is plenty of counter space to prepare a large meal.
Tamra and Tony are excellent hosts and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. They really want their Guests to enjoy themselves and will do everything they can to that end. Once you are greeted and meet with Tamra and Tony, you'll pretty much have the grounds to yourself, they are very unobtrusive, yet available for any needs you may have. We stayed at the Cabin last year, and this year we rented both the Owners Retreat and the Cabin for another couple and ourselves. The lodging is very nice, but the Pool and Cabana are Paradise! The Pool was always very clean and the amenities in the Cabana are without equal! We pretty much spent all of our time out there and only slept and cooked in the Cabin/Retreat. We are looking forward to next year and another blissful stay with Tamra and Tony!
Tony and Tamra were so kind and welcoming. They put thought and care into every detail of our cabin and our stay. It was truly amazing. Upon our arrival, there was romantic music playing in the cabin. I had forgotten to let Tamra know what time we would be arriving. Tony came over after we'd settled in a little, and gave me a quick tour of the grounds and showed me how to operate everything. The cabin was well equipped with thoughtful appointments, and all we needed were a few groceries. It was a lovely, relaxing, and romantic. We had the perfect trip!
We really enjoyed our trip. The cabin was very nice and quiet. All the amenities were very easy to use. Our hosts were very welcoming and nice. No complaints on our end
Tamra and Tony were wonderful hosts all around. Tamra was extremely responsive throughout the booking process. She contacted us ahead of our arrival to confirm and provide any additional information. They were very willing to help without ever intruding our privacy. We noticed some issues with the internet connection and informed Tamra of it. She got right on it the following morning and had it fixed. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub on the property. Great, relaxing weekend! Thank you, Tony and Tamra.
I surprised my husband at the end of a week long business trip in the area by meeting up with him and taking him away to stay a couple of nights. This Hill Country getaway was just perfect for a relaxing weekend. We enjoyed the hot tub and lounging by the pool (even if it was too cold yet to really enjoy getting in the pool). Tamra met us when we arrived and provided a complete tour with instructions. Every amenity was provided. Thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful place.
