Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths sleeps 11 comfortably

Retama is located right on the gorgeous, crystal clear waters of the Blanco River not far from the Wimberley Town Square. With 300 feet of stunning river frontage right out your back door this newly-remodeled home is an ideal, peaceful getaway from the big city. Huge oak trees welcome you to the Hill Country with branches like open arms. Beautiful, lush St. Augustine grass covers the entire property and invites you to grab your picnic blanket and a great book. Relax and let life pass you by while you read that long awaited novel on the banks of the tranquil river.

As you enter the home a wall of beautiful eight foot doors beckon you to come in and enjoy the quiet and stillness of the Hill Country. A large spacious living room, designed for families to gather and enjoy the roaring wood burning fireplace, is open to the wonderful gourmet kitchen with upscale granite countertops and shiny stainless steel appliances. Guests will enjoy dinner served at the large dining table which can seat ten guests comfortably. Overflow guests can be seated at the kitchen island which is equipped with four bar stools or at the bar area where there are an additional four high bar chairs.

Four beautiful bedrooms decorated in subdued, relaxing tones coax guests to enjoy a quiet night’s sleep and get ready for the day ahead. Sink into the inviting king bed or twin bed in the first bedroom. The second bedroom has three twin beds- perfect the little ones! In the third bedroom guests will enjoy another wonderfully tempting king bed. The huge master suite is a great haven that provides guests with a third king bed, a twin and a cozy sitting area with an additional sink.

If you have guests that enjoy a little competition there is a game room equipped with a regulation pool table and seating for spectators awaiting their turn.

For those who just can’t leave work behind or perhaps just have to stay in touch with the outside world the home is equipped with Wi-Fi. The flat screen television is perfect for your favorite movie featuring HDTV and Bluray with a surround sound system that will blow you away.

The outdoors are so alluring the kids won’t give their video games a second thought. They’ll love playing on the large, grassy lawn while mom or dad snooze in the hammock strung between the enormous oaks. When it’s time to cool off kids and adults can enjoy the river with its shallow and deep areas.

This roomy home is also great for brides-to-be and their bridal parties. The master suite is equipped with a huge three-way mirror, so the bride can ensure that she looks perfect from head to toe! And, the well-lit vanity in the sitting area is great for those wedding day makeovers. Imagine getting ready for your special day with the soundtrack of the Blanco River to ease your stress and provide a relaxing environment for you and your friends.

If spending your vacation floating in the pristine waters of the Blanco River sounds good to you make a reservation today!

Relaxing and private

  • 5 of 5

Lived in San Antonio for many years but have lived in KS for the last 16 years. Missed the hill country so much that this was where we wanted to bring our family together for the Thanksgiving weekend. Our family of 6 adults and 3 children (ages 10, 10 & 12) had a wonderful time for 4 nights over the Thanksgiving weekend. Weather was perfect which allowed for a lot of outside time. The kids played in the Blanco River every day.....technology was put away! Plus, the bunk room with 3 twin beds was perfect for them to kick back and get plenty of sleep after an active day. The living/kitchen/dining area provided ample space when hanging out watching football, playing cards and eating and such. Quite frankly though, with the great weather most of our time was spent outside. Fire pit with smors every night.. Not knowing what would be available, we brought our own firewood for the fire pit for the first night but then found plenty of available stacked firewood for the other nights. Enjoyed the deer while sitting in the dark with the fire a blazing. Highly recommend this home for a getaway.

Retama is as good (and great) as they say!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three super fine days at this excellent property. It was even more spacious and well kept than we anticipated. We loved the quiet. We had the river virtually to ourselves. We saw wildlife (deer, turkeys, and many birds (from a hummingbird to a heron). The kitchen and dining area were large enough to easily accommodate our group of eight. The bedrooms were fine; the master bedroom was particularly welcoming, with a nice sitting area. Our children really appreciated the pool table. We recommend one improvement: a place this nice could use a better, more functional grill. We highly recommend this place if your budget permits.

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect for a relaxing weekend away. The layout was fantastic, the patio was wonderful, the scenery was magnificent, the kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, pans and utensils, the bathrooms were well-stocked with towels and washcloths, the beds were very comfortable, the decor was very nice.

It is right outside of Wimberley, and close to San Marcos and New Braunfels. In addition, there is a really neat glass-blowing shop nearby.

Just sitting out on the patio watching deer and wild turkeys near the river on the first night we arrived brought my stress level down and proved to be the beginning of a wonderful weekend spent eating, drinking wine and playing games when we weren't off listening to blues music in Gruene or touring the glass-blowing shop.

I can't wait to stay there again soon!
