  • Fantastic Condo

    "This condo was absolutely perfect! The location is very central to downtown activities, walkable to entertainment and many restaurants. The condo was clean, comfortable and well equipped. We had friends join us for a couple of nights and they said the fold out sofa bed was one of the most comfortable they've experienced. I thought we would be sharing the master shower but there is a small shower in the lower level bath which was a nice surprise. The owners and management company were very helpful and responsive. We will definitely be back when in Austin in the future!"

    "Nice clean condo that had everything you needed for a relaxing trip. Large screen tv and two seperate sleeping arrangements made it possible to sleep in if you chose without awaking the other couple. We were told that the rental was on lower level, but it was not. That made it a little difficult for one person in our party that had had recent knee surgery. Keys were in pick-up box and promised and everything was clean and new in the apartment. I would definitely stay there again."

  • Great College reunion spot

    "Eleven women who shared wonderful college memories in the same dorm, celebrated a milestone birthday year by reuniting in Wimberley at both the Peacock house and Canyon View sites. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the majestic canyon views from the porch where we enjoyed several meals and much laughter. The main house was very roomy and everyone enjoyed the spacious kitchen and decks. Petey was a treat and an early morning alarm clock to get us going. The peacock house was used by 3 of us and served as the spot we cooked the meals in and then brought to the big house. The location was wonderful and Norene had the place spotless for our arrival. Wimberley and Gruene were delightful places to spend our days. My only negative comment is that the mattress is the master bedroom needed to be replaced but it is on order and should already be replaced before your stay. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you Carrie et all."

Texas Travel Tips

Seeking the thrill of the Texas frontier? Come visit the Lone Star State for a crash course in Western heritage and hospitality. It boasts a diversity of terrains, from the Panhandle Plains to Gulf Coast to Big Bend Country, and tons of things to do from touring NASA’s Mission Control, sampling the indie music scene in Austin or exploring American landmarks like the Alamo. Whatever Southern flavor you’re looking for, Texas is sure to have it. Here’s a glimpse of Texas' top cities:

Houston

Houston, all systems are go. To launch off your visit, explore the world-famous Space Center, home to NASA’s Mission Control. The center features astronauts training for the International Space Station, a behind-the-scenes-look into deep-space missions and the latest pivotal technologies in the exploration of Mars. You won’t be able to miss the Museum of Fine Arts, the largest in the Southwest, which for starters showcases two gallery buildings whose walls are covered in artwork from all over the world. The collections highlight pieces from Africa to Asia to Latin America, although it is best known for its European Impressionist paintings. Stay dry at the Downtown Aquarium as you step inside a 17th century Spanish shipwreck, learn about the Louisiana Swamp and stand in awe in front of the Sunken Temple of ancient Mayan civilization. The white tiger exhibit and Ferris wheel rides are also a must-see. Cap your evening off with a savory taste of Texas tacos at local favorites like Pistoleros on Westheimer Street.

Austin

As the capital of the Lone Star State, Austin is a hotbed for music and culture. If you’re here in October, be sure to check out the Austin City Limits festival. In March get blown away by South By Southwest (SXSW), a nonstop party of music, interactive displays and film festivals that takes place every spring. Without a doubt these fests are among the reasons Austin has been declared the “Live Music Capital of the World.” For local flavor the rest of the year, stop by Stubb’s Bar-B-Q for finger-lickin’ barbecue and musical acts that have featured artists like Cake, Ratatat as well as George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. The Red River District is the place in town to hear indie and alternative sounds pouring out from the bars. With Ladybird Lake cutting through the heart of the city, there is biking and kayaking to be had. Riding through scenic paths along serene lakes on the Town Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail is a great way to get your bearings in this mix of college town and musical haven.

Dallas

The biggest urban arts district in the country can be found in Dallas. It is a 19-block spread of cultural rejuvenation that will leave your creative side drooling. If you haven’t had enough, carve a slice out of your day to visit the Irving Arts Center, which is a premier theater and outdoor sculpture garden. Keep the history reel running while you take a trip back in time at the Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament to watch knights joust. Your older kids will leaping with joy after a trip to the Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park. If you’re picturing a more relaxing time for you and your travel-mates, take a stroll through the breathtaking Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, which was ranked the 2013 “Top Ten Botanical Gardens in the U.S.” by the Travel Channel. Top it all off with some tasty treats at Dallas by Chocolate and Dallas Bites for unbelievable chocolate and Bar-B-Q burgers.

San Antonio

As Texas’ (arguably) second-biggest city behind Houston, San Antonio has plenty to offer. Tour through the legendary Alamo, lose yourself amidst the peaceful San Antonio Botanical Gardens in Brackenridge Park or climb along the natural beauty of Enchanted Rock as you trace the footsteps where Native American warriors were killed - or at least so the legend goes. The River Walk is always a hit. It weaves across San Antonio River with dozens of restaurants, sidewalk cafes and street performers to make this Texas’ No. 1 attraction, according to U.S. News and World Report. Trying to get your John Wayne strut on? Fire away at San Antonio Western Shooting, a safe and excellent experience to handle real guns and bullets. No prior instruction is needed. If you need a break after your adrenaline shot to new Wild West heights, take a seat at the Majestic Theatre, a movie theater built in 1929 and a classic landmark of the city. It even has a domed ceiling covered with clouds and stars.

Fort Worth

Put on your cowboy boots - or at least pick some up - because Fort Worth prides itself on its Western heritage. Check out the Texas Civil War Museum that displays the largest private Civil War collection west of the Mississippi. Country music stars perform onstage at Billy Bob’s Texas, the largest honky tonk in the world. Kids will love the Fort Worth Zoo, a superb destination for the whole family to catch a glimpse at lions and monkeys. If you want a legitimate reason to say “it’s not my first rodeo,” head down to the Cowtown Coliseum on the weekend to watch the rides of lifetime. For shoppers, Fort Worth has everything from authentic Western gear to modern shops for every budget. After grabbing a few gifts, hit the Cantina Laredo for delicious Mexico City-style food, or Del Frisco Double Eagle for a juicy steak. Swing by the Fort, it’s worth it.

Discover your rugged side in the Wild West, where Texas hospitality lives on.
