GALLERY on the Blanco in Wimberley

House - Entire home/apt · Flite Acres Rd, Wimberley, TX 78676, United States

The Space

Unique home, pristine setting, incredible community. Recently remodeled with special attention to the use of materials that are energy efficient, non toxic, and aesthetically pleasing. The focus on conservation is evident throughout with hand crafted counters of recycled glass and resin, reclaimed wood floors and trim, volcanic limestone and resin tub, and more. The incorporation of antiques in the cabinets, stained glass windows, and individually selected doors create a timeless appeal. The recycled theme is carried through to the art, with a stunning school of fish individually sculpted out of aluminum cans, and the custom furniture which includes a dining room table made from a 150 year old mission door.

While there is much to appreciate in the interior construction, it's the view that captures you. The home sits on a limestone bluff directly over the river with water views from almost every room in the house. The water is deep enough to paddle board and is perfect for tubing when the river is flowing. You can rest your lounge chair in the shallow water on the banks and relax to the soothing sounds of the rapids when you're through with your swim.

Hard to imagine a place this serene can also be convenient, but the location is unbeatable. We're a mile from town, Blue Hole Regional Park, and Wimberley's renown outdoor theater, The Corral. Jacob's Well is just a few minutes away. Fiber Arts enthusiasts will love Old Oaks Ranch. Live music and is always available in town, at the Whitewater Ampitheater or other nearby locations. In addition to all there is to do here, Wimberley is the perfect location to stay while you plan day trips to outlying areas. Head out on a hill country wine or barbecue tour, visit Hamilton Pool, tube the Guadalupe in New Braunfels, take in Gruene and the oldest dance hall in Texas, tour LBJ's boyhood home in Johnson City, or spend the day at America's largest water park, Schlitterbahn. Wimberley is home to many artists and musicians and there are opportunities to attend a variety of shows year round. San Antonio is only an hour away with The Alamo, 6 Flags, the zoo and more, or head 45 minutes north to Austin, the Live Music Capitol of the World!

The well stocked kitchen with professional cookware, gas stove, and every imaginable appliance will delight any cook. The enormous master suite is divine with it's cathedral ceiling, inviting decor and a bathroom to rival any spa. The architecture features high ceilings throughout with a 30 foot ceiling in the living room wrapped in wood.

There are no carpets, drapes or indoor plants to aggravate allergies. However, pets are on the property.

There is a greenhouse with an aquaponic system. You're welcome to partake of the current selection of organic produce.

We love this community and will gladly help tailor your stay to include your interests. No doubt, you will be enchanted, too.

  • This house is absolutely perfect! The photos don't do it justice, despite how great they are. We easily fit my boyfriend and I's family as well as my uncle and cousin. The bed in the master bedroom was really great. Also, the upstairs bathroom is amazing!
    Holly herself is a supremely cool person. I cannot stress this enough, getting to meet her was one of the biggest highlights of the trip. She's a savvy decorator, got great stories, is funny and dynamic, and the most helpful host imaginable. Also her children are amazing musicians :)
    Wimberly is actually a really great area for food, shopping and quiet. Even if you're looking for Austin or San Antonio, this is a great place to stay, and you can even hit both cities, then retire back to the house for card games around a campfire :)
    We'll definitely be back to stay!

    Response from Holly:

    Wow! Thanks Liz. Can't wait to have you back. And all of the mattresses are certified non toxic memory foam with natural latex. The bedding is also organic bamboo. I'll send you the link when I figure out where I bought them.

  • Very accommodating! House was very nice and the scenery is beautiful. Would definitely recommend this place.

Silk Road Less Traveled
About
I LOVE travel and all that it entails e.g., conquering the unknown, meeting new friends and the ensuing education that can't be learned in a classroom. My husband and I have 6 children, although all are now legally adults. Our kids were raised with an appreciation for experiences over material possessions and happily, they embrace the values of travel as well. I wish airbnb had existed back when we were first carting them around the states and across the pond. A Marriott is a Marriott is a Marriott. You can travel the world and feel like you've never left home. But the opportunity to stay in a home in the city you're visiting? I can't imagine a better way to really get a feel for your destination. I am currently traveling as much as I possibly can and my primary destination is Turkey. I am about to leave for my third trip this year and I am studying Turkish. Once I feel comfortable enough with Altaic languages, my intent is to travel as much of the silk road as I possibly can while avoiding civil unrest. I will blog the adventures on (website hidden).
