Sparkling clean
7 recent guests said this place was sparkling clean.

Our home is 100% off the grid and GREEN. You’ll find it rustic but clean and comfortable. We built it with our own two hands. It is entirely made from earth using CEBs (compressed earth blocks). The floor is Earthen and sealed with linseed oil. The ceiling, trim and closet walls are made from up cycled barn wood. The sinks, tub and appliances were rescued from finding their way in the landfill. We believe in sustainable living and doing our part to leave Earth better than we found it.

This is a fabulous place to escape from the hustle & bustle of everyday life. Set in the country with animals roaming freely. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the peace and quite while enjoying a clear sky and a full moon.

True Texas Vacation. This home is a destination in itself. We enjoyed expansive views, horses, ponies, longhorns and goats meandering past picture-sized Windows. Every detail was planned and prepared. The hosts were kind, communicated well, and the home was sparkling clean. We…

Really loved our experience at Ryan & Melissa's. It's a beautiful home and we adored having all the animals around. It's only a 15 min drive or so into downtown San Antonio so it made day trips extremely convenient. We have already recommended it to friends.

Exceeded all expectations! Beautiful and cozy home. The house was very clean and fully stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Plenty of hot water and solar power to keep the home fully functional for a family of 4! We arrived very late and Ryan was happy to…

The house was part of our vacation experience not just a place we stayed. It is conveniently located but gives the feel of being out in the middle of nowhere. We enjoyed our stay. The horses will approach you but are quite friendly and enjoyed being pet.
