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. From our hacienda, comfortably walk to world renowned Breweries, Cideries, Pizzeria, Distilleries & wedding destinations. Perfect family or romantic getaway.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

A great place that is secluded but still close enough to Austin. We had a great weekend here!

I wish there were more stars! Not only was Elizabeth's home perfectly arranged and beautifully decorated, it generated a strong sense of peace, tranquility and happiness. Upon arrival there was a warm note and wine (I let Elizabeth know I was celebrating my birthday), and lovely welcome basket that contained just about anything you might need. I felt I was at a resort in the way everything was decorated and pleasing. The views are amazing from inside the home because there are a ton of great windows, and the deck is stunning! It's large and surrounds the entire home allowing many different views, not to mention the breezes. We saw deer, a few hawks and what one of us thought might be a raccoon but we weren't sure. Wineries, distilleries, farms, music venues and more are just short drives away, and most of them were right off of Fitzhugh. A couple of those are even within a short walk from the house. Be sure to check out Elizabeth's suggestions. I would highly recommend this place and plan to come back soon.

Great view. Great location. Great communication! Awesome wrap around porch, my only wish is that we would not have gone on the hottest weekend of the whole summer because we weren't able to enjoy the porch nearly as much as I would have liked!

This place was amazing! Elizabeth took much care in making sure everything we could possibly need was available and explained everything we needed to know up front so there was no detail we had to worry about. The views are amazing and our pups loved the wrap around porch! We were beyond comfortable and there are so many things to go and do in the area but we still got to enjoy being close to nature and the ultimate privacy! What a gem! Thanks Elizabeth and family!

Where to start? This was my maiden voyage on airbnb and I can say that my experience with these hosts and this home has convinced me to look to airbnb for all future excursions. The home is immaculate, the view is breathtaking, the hosts are beyond lovely and the location is superb. The home is close to many water activities, breweries and vineyards, and even close to town. (But not too close!) If you are looking to stay somewhere that is a home away from home, this is your place!!!

Beautiful place nice to get away from civilization. Great to go relax with friends and family. Make sure to stop at grocery store get all ur stuff so u don't have to leave Can be scary at night if u arrive late at night host has plenty of lights in and outside There is no curtains on the rooms be ware
Elizabeth User ProfileElizabeth is a superhost.
Response from Elizabeth:
Thanks for the feedback, Jorge! We've never had anyone arrive at night, so from now on, we'll be sure to leave some lights on just in case! I wondered if anyone would mind that we don't have any curtains out here where it's just us and the owls at night. I'll get some curtains for people to put up if they want to and remedy that. But alas, they then won't wake to the feel of the tree house or the view if they put up curtains. Thanks again for being such a great guest. We look forward to hosting you again.

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!
