Wimberley cottage description

Wimberley's newest vacation rental on the square!
Fully restored, this old Wimberley homestead represents the unique charm of the Texas hill country.

Located on the square in Wimberley, visitors to Casa Blanca are just steps away from the restaurants, galleries, and boutiques at the heart of town. Cypress Creek and the trail head to the Blue Hole Regional Park are across the street. Guests can walk to theatre performances at Wimberley Players.

Casual but luxurious, Casa Blanca is designed for discriminating adult guests. Down bedding, a fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable TV lounge chairs make this the best choice for holiday accommodations.

The 2 bedrooms provide luxurious king and queen size beds with special appointments designed to make your stay most comfortable.

Massages are provided on-sight by our wonderful local massage therapist. Massage appointments can be arranged with her in advance of your arrival.

Whether you cook gourmet or just cafe, you will appreciate the fully equipped 'cuisine' with a sitting area and wine bar.

Leather lounges in the living room make for a cozy movie night or cocktails at the end of the day. The private backyard is also a nice place to enjoy an afternoon drink or get-together with friends.

We are honored to represent the work of two artists,
Austin photographer Winston Hicks and handmade quilting by Jean-E-Quilts.

For your next stay in Wimberley, enjoy the comfort and pleasures of a fully equipped home with all the charm and accommodations of a boutique hotel. You will be charmed!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: Casa Blanca is a family owned property. June and Henry Ault live in Wimberley Texas and are an integral part of the creative Wimberley community. They retired to Wimberley after a lifetime in Austin. Suzanne Oliver, their daughter lives and works in Austin but spends much time in Wimberley enjoying the cool, clean water and the artistic culture there.

                      Why the Owner Chose Wimberley:
                      We are local residents of Wimberley and we love the Wimberley Valley, the Blue Hole, and the art and music of the region. The opportunity to acquire this historic home was very fitting for our intention to become more active in the preservation and sustainable promotion of the natural wonders in this area.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      A little stone house on the square....this was the initial attraction. Then hearing from the local school teacher whose family lived there and the stories of families before. We felt compelled to save the home, restore it and make it available to the kind visitors who love this town like we do.
