The Shang Ri La was everything described and more! The entire pool area is beautiful and restorative. The cabana itself is beautifully and fancifully decorated with every amenity you would desire. The bed and bedding is very comfortable, and all is spotless. Gayle was a lovely host and she and her mom even provided us with 2 hand drawn maps to find the best fields of blue bonnets! Despite the fact that we visited in the first week if April, my husband and I enjoyed the pool area a lot--mornings and evenings in the dual lounge chair just listening to the birds and the running water and taking in the sky . My husband even enjoyed a couple swims! If you have chance , book it!
My wife and I enjoyed our stay. We booked somewhat at the last minute on Friday evening and Gayle got back to us quickly and confirmed our reservation for Saturday. It was a peaceful getaway at a nice comfortable and clean room. Thanks!
The reservation was canceled 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Shangri Loyd exceeded our expectations! Gayle responded to any inquiries about our stay in a very timely fashion. She made some great local restaurant/entertainment recommendations, and even provided us with a bottle of wine during our stay. We look forward to returning.
This was a perfect place to stay. We never we able to meet Gayle due to conflicting schedules however through email, phone & text we felt completely taken care of. We would go back in a heart beat if ever we visit the area again. The room was wonderful. Lots of room, beautifully decorated, comfy bed & even had a Christmas tree in the room. The only downfall is that due to the tile floor we had to run the heater more than usual but I bet it's great to keep things cooler in the summer. Thanks Gayle!
Gayle's place was very clean and tidy. We had everything we needed and were able to get some much needed rest and quiet time! The pool was lovely to sit by and read a book and the bed was very comfy :-)
A perfect way to spend a weekend away from home! A private, quiet, poolside escape away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. I also recommend 2300 Cafe down the road if you're looking for a bite to eat.
Gayle rocks in my book! Here's my story:
The weather changed for the better, and a campsite at nearby Inks Lake opened up, so I never actually stayed at Gayle's cabana. This all happened the day I was supposed to check-in, so I could not get a refund through AirBnB which I was completely ok with. A quick call to Gayle to let her know the change in plans turned into her offering to mail me a check for the money she got from AirBnB since we wouldn't be staying there. Two days later, a check arrived in the mail.
The cabana looks awesome, and I can only imagine that Gayle would be an attentive and accommodating host! I look forward to trying the place out the next time I pass through Burnet!
This is my second stay at Gayle's beautiful home. It is gorgeous and so serene! She is always smiling and very helpful. Not a thing I would change. ..... except I wish I could stay longer!
Response from Gayle:
Next time we should plan to have dinner all together : )
Very nice, clean and relaxing place. The pool was wonderful. Gayle was very hospitable. It will be a future vacation or long weekend spot for us in the future. Thank you Both very much.
Gayle, her husband and friends could not have been better guests. So conscientious and very sweet. I returned to the house to find that they had not only left it meticulously clean, but left lovely wildflowers on the deck and a very nice note. I wish that I had more time to spend with them, and hope to make it out to Texas to visit Shangri Loyd.
