Secluded tree house privacy. 27 acres to play on, starry night sky, birds chirping all day long & a massive view. 20 minutes to downtown or 25 to ABIA. Wrap around veranda, hammock, biking, wildlife, smoker/bbq. This one of a kind getaway is tucked way back in the woods, off Fitzhugh Rd, Austin's wedding route to the Hill Country.

Complete privacy and seclusion. The view from our porch is stunning as are the stars at night. There is abundant wildlife including deer, rabbits, coyotes yipping in the distance, foxes, and dozens of bird species. Our hacienda style home has large rooms, 2 baths, is dog-friendly and kid-friendly too. We are located on the wedding corridor in the wedding capital of Texas - Dripping Springs, the gateway to the Hill Country. We are located just about half way between Austin and Dripping Springs.
We provide the basics: coffee, tea, soap, shampoo, etc. We want you to have an amazing experience here! There is also a convenience store about 4 miles away in case you need it.
The beds in our house sleep 6. The wonderfully firm air mattress is queen sized, sleeps two comfortably, and could be set up in any room in the house.
The wrap-around veranda has almost as much square footage as the house itself, and when the weather is lovely, it's hard to come inside.
Most of the time there's not a burn-ban, so bring your s'mores makings and have a fire in our fire ring.
From our hacienda you can comfortably walk about 1/3 of a mile to world renowned Jester King Brewery, Argus Cidery, Stanley's Pizza, Revolution Spirits, & Last Stand Brewery. Dozens more breweries, wineries, and restaurants are an easy drive.
Grill out or smoke in the smoker/bbq. Bring the bikes or just hike around the property. We are a bird sanctuary and birder's paradise with migratory birds often making an appearance. Shower in the outdoor shower. Nap in the hammock or work in the sky chair.
Cook fabulous meals in our fully furnished open kitchen. We do not use a microwave. ;) Eat your fabulous meals out on the veranda. This house is about getting together, enjoying living, and being outside as much as possible.
Our care taker/property manager lives remotely on the property and is available should the need arise.
This is the heart of it all. Just miles from Pedernales State Park, Hamilton Pool, Reimer's Ranch, Wimberley, The Salt Lick, and Dripping Springs, our location on the scenic Fitzhugh Rd is your play land to reach it all. Come enjoy all the Hill Country has to offer and stay just minutes from Austin. Romantic getaway or family fun!
Some world-class swimming holes are just minutes away: Hamilton Pool, Krause Springs, Blue Hole, Barton Springs, Barton Creek, Jacob’s Well & Blanco State Park. You can access the Pedernales river from Reimer's Ranch or Pedernales State Park. Go tubing on the Guadalupe or the San Marcos. Lake Travis and Lake Austin are great for boating and water sports.
Austin and San Marcos have great shopping from boutiques to outlet malls.
We allow up to two extremely well-behaved dogs who don't get on furniture. $50 non-refundable pet fee is due before check-in. Please contact me for details.
You have access to our entire house and property. We keep the garage closed and locked, but there is plenty of parking outside.
Interaction with guests
We want to be as helpful as possible while allowing our guests total privacy and seclusion. We only interact with guests if needed. Our property manager lives in a cabin on the property and is there to take care of anything if the need should arise. Otherwise, our guests will likely never know he's there. Feel free to message with any questions or concerns at all.
- We are on a rain water system, so we just ask that everyone be conscious of water consumption. Feel free to use water, bathe, etc, but just don't let faucets run if not necessary. Thanks!
- We also ask that no dirty dishes be left behind. Please run the dishwasher if there are dishes in it, but no need to wait around to empty it.
- Please leave the beds unmade or stripped. Used towels can go on the floor.
- No more than 10 people are allowed at the house for any reason at any time.
Gotta live! When we rent out our house, we take off for a few days and explore. Airbnb is such a great way for us to share our awesome place with people who want to visit the Hill Country or Austin and to get us out and about. We love it!
