Wimberley cabin description

Embrace Nature.
Rise with the sun and a chorus of songbirds.
Experience the feeling of lightness that comes from sleeping amidst treetops.
Take-in the beauty of the Texas Hill Country from the veranda while sipping freshly brewed gourmet coffee.

Discover what safari enthusiasts have known for decades - you don't have to sacrifice luxury and comfort to enjoy the great outdoors.

Situated high atop a ridge overlooking a waterfall on Lone Man Creek in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, this safari tent will enchant you with its simple elegance. Constant breezes and multi-layered canvas are what allow Sinya to maintain a surprisingly comfortable temperature, even on the warmest of days.

From the moment you begin your walk down the rock-lined path you know you‘ve arrived somewhere truly special and with each new step, you become more captivated by its beautiful, lofting presence. Sinya was designed to balance luxury with eco-friendly practices without sacrificing comfort.

It's camping - redefined!

Wake up refreshed and invigorated in the king-size platform bed with 100% white goose down comforter and pillows and 100% bamboo blanket and sheets that feel like a blend of cashmere and silk. The loveseat is perfect for quiet contemplation, romantic conversation, or simply taking-in the beautiful view. If you don't want to leave your sanctuary, prepare your own quick meal in the kitchenette, equipped with a small refrigerator and freezer, microwave oven, induction cooktop, toaster oven, outdoor propane grill, and 12-cup coffee maker. After dinner relax with a luxurious, scented milk bath in the century-old claw foot bathtub or bathe 'al fresco' with the hot/cold outdoor shower on the back deck. Finally, sample a bottle of Texas Hill Country wine and enjoy complimentary Smores while sitting around the crackling garden fire pit.

Sinya is equipped with an energy efficient, dual zone, ductless air-conditioning and heating system providing cooling comfort in the summer and toasty-warmth in the winter.

Landscaping is irrigated with recycled gray water. All soap, detergent, shampoo, hair conditioner, and milk-bath have been specially selected for their quality and are supplied for guests to use at no additional charge. They are free of phosphates, borax, and sodium which can harm the environment.

Attention has been given to every detail so that guests of Sinya on Lone Man Creek will take with them long lasting memories and a new found appreciation for a more eco-friendly lifestyle.
