Comfort estate description

* Rates from $1199 for 3 day or longer rental through March 19, 2015.

Enjoy your choice of a 'self catering' stay or an all-inclusive experience: gourmet food by our award winning Master Chef George Paramithas in an exclusive, resort-style ranch estate. Food costs, tax and gratuity are extra and billed separately, depending on your menu choices.

The house is 5000 square feet with another 3000 square feet of covered porches and another 2000+ square feet deck surrounding the pool. The house is set atop a ridge with 30+ mile views to the east, south and west.

The main part of the home is over 3000 square feet and has 2 of the 6 bedrooms, 2½ baths, laundry, huge gourmet kitchen, butler's pantry, huge dining area, great room & 3 fireplaces (in master, great & porch). An upstairs media room features a Bang & Olufsen® HDTV with surround sound and seat amplifiers. There also are TVs in the master bedroom & living room. The casitas feature Bang & Olufsen® iPod®/iPad® (and Android) docking stations for unbelievable sound.

The master suite includes a separate shower and large soaking tub. The home & two casitas flank the enormous pool with double screened doors throughout. Each casita has 2 bedrooms with a shared 3/4 bath.

Relax in the huge courtyard pool and fireplace or on the screened porch. The estate offers the finishes, furnishings and comforts you would expect from a world-class resort. You will be in awe of the spectacular 360° views of the Texas Hill Country - so much so that day excursions will interfere!

Enjoy the sunrise over the pool and beautiful, panoramic vistas.

Alexandra Ranch is surrounded by Texas Hill Country's renowned wineries and antique shops. However, we strongly recommend that for short, 2 day visits, you make Alexandra Ranch your only destination. Once you arrive at this private, resort-like ranch, you'll understand.

Dine in the great room or under the stars with food prepared by our renowned chef (extra charges apply for all food and beverage; food costs are not included in our published rates).

The estate offers multiple areas for dining and gathering. Enjoy gathering in front of the outdoor fireplace on cool evenings. Gaze at the incredible night sky from the magnificent pool. You won't see more stars even in the wilderness of Big Bend.

Since our closest neighbors are far away, light and noise pollution are non-existent.

The pool deck, home and casitas are all on one level with no steps.

If you desire seclusion and need fewer rooms, we would be glad to accommodate you by renting a portion of the property - subject to availability. (Please note that there is a 4 person maximum for the main house.). Weekday house only rentals: $999.

*Unless otherwise specified, all prices are exclusive of food, alcohol, tax and HomeAway insurance. Gratuities are at your discretion.

                  Alexandra Ranch combines luxury with a rustic hill country flair in the ever-popular, renowned Texas wine country. Most of the best known wineries are within 20 miles of the property. You can combine your stay with a delightful culinary experience for as little as $199.99 per day, per person - 6 person minimum. Please note: actual food prices depend on your menu choices and are billed separately from your accommodation by our private chef. Contact our chef directly at 210-441-2054 or go to www.kalocatering.com for more information.

Please note that, although we offer fine dining on the property, absolutely no weddings, large events, bachelorette parties or the like are permitted. Because we are not a wedding or event venue, we do not accommodate groups of more than 12 persons. However, there are several event venues very close to the ranch and our renowned chef can cater your event at these venues.
