My girlfriend and I had always wanted to enjoy the Texas Hill Country yet we've never been, nor have we experienced staying at a BNB before. To our amazement we couldn't have ask for a more splendid time there that weekend. The property was actually BETTER than the pictures because it only shows one side of the property, and there were soo many wonderful areas of this property we were in heaven. As soon as we entered the door Leslie made us feel like family. The house was absolutely gorgeous and had a extraordinary comfort to it. Yes there were beautiful landscape & trees, deer feeding daily, amazing coy ponds, pomegranate tree, cool grape vines, secret gardens, pearly white chickens, 3D TVs, amazing view of the hills, but Leslie and Jess captivated our weekend with their peaceful joy and happy contentment with life (it was contagious). Breakfast was amazingly organic and nutritious as I am very health conscious. My girlfriend and I agreed this is how our lives should be like. Leslie suggested things to do and places to eat (all of which were excellent choices). She even packed up a cooler with towels as we went to the Camal River on day. In just a short time we felt like we had known Leslie and Jess for decades. They made us truly feel safe and welcomed. Jess showed me all his projects he was working and it definitely inspired me to one day a place like that for my own. Words can't express how truly blessed we were to pick this as our destination. We ended up staying an extra night as we couldn't resist Leslie & Jess's hospitality when we experienced a unfortunate circumstance on the way home. ANYONE who picks this place and has an open mind will be overwhelmed by the time they leave. Honestly, this experience has changed the way I look at my life, Southern Hospitality, and BNB in general. I would strongly recommend this place and look forward to going back every year!!!

Mine and my husband's experience in the Botanical Room was wonderful. Leslie and Jess made us feel right at home with their sweet spirit and cool stories. Their lovely, country home is exactly as pictured, if not better. My husband and I were blown away by the generosity and overall excellent experience we had. Leslie made wonderful, homemade eggs benedict on Saturday and scones on Sunday, yumm-o! I would highly recommend staying here to anyone. Hopefully we will have to go back to San Antonio so we can stay here again.
Leslie and Jess are precious gems among an already shining treasure trove of beauty! While I normally try to arrive without expectations, the spirits of this lovely couple so eloquently matched the serene and thoughtful environment that they have created with heartfelt intention. My girlfriend and I immediately felt like family and didn't want to leave, even though exciting things were waiting for us. Leslie even left a sweet little Easter basket full of goodies for the road after a marvelous spread at breakfast. We were sad to leave but are so happy to someday (soon) return!
Our stay with Leslie and Jess was a fantastic experience, by far our best stay during our trip in Texas. Their home is wonderful and our room was very comfortable and pretty. Leslie and Jess are the best hosts anyone can wish for, they really spoiled us and it gave us so much pleasure to meet and talk with them. We came as strangers and left as friends with beautiful memories.
Leslie was a wonderful and gracious host. Her house is very relaxing as well as the area, it definitely surpassed our expectations. Will definitely stay with them in the future! Thanks Leslie and hope to see you soon!
Due to tragic and unforeseen circumstances I had to cancel my stay at Leslie's at the last moment. Even though I didn't have any problems paying, she insisted on refunding the full amount. I cannot comment on the accommodation, but judging by her response I'd expect it to be nothing less then perfect.
Leslie and Jess are perfect hosts. They immediately make you feel like you are at home and their home is lovely. This was our first experience using Airbnb. If there is a gold standard on how to do it right, they've achieved it.

We love sharing our dream home with travelers from near and far. We really want to make our guests feel like our home is their home and love meeting new people.
