Overview

About the property

Open Kitchen, Pool, Creek View, Great Porch: 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

Perched on the cliff above Cypress Falls, Island House provides a wonderful retreat for small group reunions, romantic getaways or adult family holidays. The kitchen, living room, and larger bedrooms open to the covered porch and enjoy views of the creek and the peaceful sound of waterfalls. Swimming under awesome sunsets, birdwatching, and easy golf course access highlight the peace and quiet of creek side living.

Available for 1 night stays Sunday-Wednesday, 2 night minimums Thursday-Saturday and 3 night minimums on holidays, Island House has been fully renovated (Winter of 2015) with new appliances, granite and walnut countertop and bar. The large kitchen opens to the living room so all guests may enjoy the view of the pool and the creek below! Beautiful new landscaping has just been completed!

Equipped for 6 overnight adult guests with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a swimming pool, and a covered porch with an outdoor dining table and lounge area.

Our guests enjoy all the entertainment comforts of home, including Roku 3, cable, wireless internet, a blue ray DVD/CD player, a large selection of CDs and DVDs, I-pod music systems and flat screen/HD TVs in the living room and master bedroom.

The large outside dining table on the back porch allows for wonderful meals with a cool breeze from the creek. Nature lovers take great pleasure from the hummingbirds, hawks and great blue herons that are seen daily.

Golfers find the Quicksand Golf Club just around the corner and Island House guests view the pond at the 8th hole across the street.

Our home is a wonderful adult retreat - young children, pets and smoking are not allowed.

About Claire or Suzanne

Island House at Cypress Falls, The Blue Hole House, and Casa Blanca on the Wimberley Square are family owned properties. June and Henry Winston Ault and their daughter Suzanne Oliver all live in Wimberley, having retired here after years in Austin.

They are an integral part of the creative Wimberley community.

"We love the cool, clean water and the artistic culture here.

We enjoy sharing this relaxing life with people from all over the world and of all backgrounds.

We open our homes to all people with open hearts!"

Claire or Suzanne purchased this house in 2010

Why Claire or Suzanne chose Hill Country

We already have a home in Wimberley and love this community, we consider it home. This particular property is unique and beautiful overlooking the creek.

What makes this house unique

The view, the sunsets, the sound of the waterfalls, the Great Blue Herons, the cool breezes, the comfortable rooms and fantastic covered porch.

Girlfriend Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!! What a beautiful home and ideal location. We take an annual girls trip and this has to be one of the best places we have stayed in and awesome location. Such a nice clean home and well stocked kitchen. There are 5 of us and we had plenty of room and enjoyed the pool. We always cook together and there was plenty of room in the kitchen and having the grill was nice too. We all loved this place and look forward to coming back. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived and house was very clean and furnishings were very comfortable.

We really enjoyed the pool, it was clean and very private. We very much enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back. This house has everything you need! Shopping and restaurants galore! You have to go to the Leaning Pear! It was our favorite. Great food and ambiance! You will NOT be disappointed!
