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!

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.

Amazing home with great floor plan and scenery
Thank you for your review! So glad you enjoyed your stay. We are about to finish the gameroom addition. Come back and stay with us soon.
We visited over spring break. The main house was absolutely perfect! The “casita” not so much. The pictures and descriptions show a game with a “wet bar and couch” but it was actually a house under construction. No wet bar or couch. Just two bar stools and tons of dust. I “took one for the team” and stayed in the casita house so my family did not have to endure it. There was lots of dust from the construction and nails throughout the driveway. The bed in the “master” were just awful! It was loud and rock hard and tiny. I couldn’t tell if it was a queen or full. The website said queen but it felt more like a full but In al honesty I am not sure. The bed in the other room was the same. Loud and uncomfortable. I thought about sleeping on the couch on the porch but when a bobcat showed up I changed my mind. I will say the one thing I loved about the casita house was the shower. Great water pressure and super hot water!
For the main house, everything was great and the family said the beds weren’t super comfortable (aside form the master) but they weren’t awful. Everyone enjoyed their stay who was in that house. There were many items provided so we did not have to bring very much besides food. The pool and hot tub were kept very clean.
I just wish we had been warned ahead of time that the home was under construction. The yellow caution tape really killed the ambiance and the kids did not get to enjoy the game room like they had imagined.
Once the casita is finished I’m sure the property will be perfect. It looks like they are adding it to be a second fully functional house.
I am so sorry you were not informed about the improvements being made to the property. I thought we had reached out to all of our guest to inform them that we were expanding the gameroom to add shuffleboard, skeeball, pool table and more. Apparently you got overlooked somehow. I will have Shiloh reach out to you to give you a partial refund for your stay for the inconvenience.
Thanks for informing us about the matresses. I will be ordering the premium mattresses we use at all of our other rental homes (the guest love them and always ask what it is so they can go buy one).
The improvements will be done by end of April 2020. We hope you'll come back and see all the awesome things we have added. We will have new pictures coming soon.
Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway
We absolutely loved our stay at Sunset Ridge. The house and grounds were beautiful and spacious. I could have stayed for weeks it was so serene. The property manager went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed. We will definitely stay at this property again!
Thank you for the 5 star review! We hope to have you back soon!
Sunset Ridge Success
This was a perfect setting for our family, including two young granddaughters. There was easy access to Wimberley, and we also took in San Marcos. The sunset views from the porch were magnificent.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to have you back!
Everything was incredible. The property is gorgeous and the owners are very attentive.
The girls and I had an amazing time. It was incredible. The house is wonderful! Everything was clean and accessible.
Thank you for your review! So glad you and your girlfriends had an amazing time. Hope to have you back soon!
We are 2 miles from Wimberley Square. Trades Day is a great outing. 3 minute walk to public access on the Blanco River with great water! This property is on 12 private acres, with a great pool area, and many guests never leave the property.
