The property is over 12 acres of secluded hill country beauty, with the buildings, decks, and outdoor living areas all arranged along the higher elevations to provide for the panoramic views. Enjoy leisurely walks along the Crushed granite walkways on the property.

The Main House of Sunset Ridge Escape is a Hill Country Masterpiece with Limestone accents and a metal roof. There are two large bedrooms up, sharing one full bath, with the master bedroom and bath downstairs. The house is set up to accommodate entertaining, with an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The Living room has a wood burning fireplace with a limestone hearth. The dining room has a 8’ farm table that will seat 10 easily. There is a sun room on the back of the house, just perfect for your morning coffee.

The Casita (Little House )is just offset behind the main house and has a large Game room with pool table, wet bar, couch, chairs,TV with DVD, and stereo. It has large glass doors and windows to take advantage of the awesome view in front. There is a large master bedroom with a private bath with a large walk-in shower. There is a 2nd bedroom with large windows to enjoy the view. There is a full bath with a whirlpool tub, great for relaxing. There is a 40’ x 14’ rock patio out front, with a cover over the entire patio, and has ceiling fans for your comfort.

When reserving Sunset Ridge Escape, the main house and the casita are included in every booking.

The Hot Tub is large enough for 8 people and sits on a rock patio next to the fire pit.

We have a swimming pool with a sport pool ( 4' to 5.5' to 4' ) and a separate lounge pool ( 12' to 18' deep ). We also have a full outdoor kitchen with rock structure, stainless steel gas grill, sink, and refrigerator.

There is an elevated deck off of the front porch of the Casita. The elevated level allows for panoramic views of the valley and local 'mountains', while you enjoy a glass of wine or Tea, or morning coffee.

The Observation Deck is a separate deck set back in the middle of the many Oak and Cedar trees that cover the property. It is a large deck (over 200 sq ft) and rises 10’ above the rock patio below. This deck offers additional seclusion and another opportunity to enjoy the panoramic views of the Wimberley area. The deck above is sealed and provides a dry cover for the area below, which has tables, chairs, and a BBQ pit for more outdoor living areas.

The Gazebo is a covered patio in the back yard. There is a BBQ pit, small fire pit, ceiling fan, lights, chairs and table. All to enjoy a relaxed area to cook, or just sit, outdoors.

The Fire Pit area is a large rock patio next to the Casita and near the Observation Deck. There is a sunken fire pit with a raised rock wall, and there are comfortable chairs to allow your group to socialize, while they enjoy the warmth of the fire and the brilliance of the stars in the night sky. There is also a rock sidewalk leading to the Observation deck and driveway.

The Creek side Fire Pit is an inviting area under the shade of large Oak trees and next to a seasonal creek. Follow the crushed granite walkway from the house down to this inviting area with a fire pit. A great place to have a picnic or let the kids explore.

About Shiloh Collins

Phil and Peggy Collins bought this property in late 2007. We owned one other rental property on the river, but we really wanted to own a view property, and this property was an absolute perfect fit for what we were looking for. Peggy and I had a great time remodeling and decorating this property, and we made this nice so that we would enjoy it. The picture is of Peggy and I in Shanghia, taken in April 2009. Thanks for enjoying Sunset Ridge Escape as much as we do!

Shiloh Collins purchased this house in 2007

Why Shiloh Collins chose Wimberley

Peggy and I really love the Flite Acres area of Wimberley and really enjoy being a part of the community. When we saw this house, and the property, and the VIEW, we fell in love with it. We did very little to the house, other than decorate, but we did a complete re-do when we put in the Casita with 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a gameroom, wet bar, and a huge covered rock patio with a great view of the valley. We also added the fire pit, hot tub, the elevated observation deck, swimming pool, 1500 square feet of rock patios, a lounge pool, landscaping, and a full outdoor kitchen. Besides that, we didn't do anything!!

What makes this house unique

You can see the guest comments and the write up on the house. One thing that does not come out very clear is the proximity to the Blanco River. It is a 3 minute walk from the front gate to public access to some of the best water that the Blanco has to offer. There is a small dam, so you can take your float and just lay back on one side, or go below the dam and let the kids play in the shallow water and have a great time. Our property offers great amenities, and a fabulous view, and a short walk gives you outstanding public access to the Blanco River.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sixteen of us Houstonites journeyed up here to Wimberley to celebrate two of our dearest friends 30th birthday. Every one had a marvelous time and I think we grew even a little closer. One of the birthday girls baby was revealed that it was going to be another girl!

Great family vacation. Everyone had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

Grand kids loved the pool. We sat on the front porch every morning and watched the deer feeding. A sack of corn was cheap entertainment. The property was beautiful and relaxing. We had plenty of room for our family of 16. All the grandchildren wanted to make sure we would come back.

Fantastic place, well kept up

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth trip to Sunset Ridge Escape, bringing our two daughters, their husbands, and three grandchildren. We love the place, its natural beauty, seclusion, and wildlife, but yet it is very close to Wimberley, its shops and restaurants, and the HEB! The owners are very responsive and work very hard to keep the place up. Bringing our family here has turned into an annual event that we anticipate for weeks . I would highly recommend!

Great stay! This is our second girls trip to this property!

  • 5 of 5

12 women stayed comfortably and enjoyed all the amenities for our second girls trip at this house!

The pump for the floaties wasn’t working and we couldn’t find a can opener. But I’m just sharing as a heads up! The property is beautiful and the house is impeccable! Love it and highly recommend!

Only issue was a door latch not working properly on one of the back big deal. Would rent again when we have 10 or more people again.
