We had a wonderful time hanging out by the gorgeous pool, playing golf at the nearby UT Golf club, and watching the Horns play ball. Thanks for making our weekend so enjoyable! Look forward to my next visit to Austin!

Amazing venue for my wedding!

  • 5 of 5

The moment I saw the property I knew I wanted to have my wedding there. Julie was very responsive and allowed me multiple trips to view the home with vendors to figure out all of the logistics for the evening. She gave me great ideas for planning and included exact expectations and instructions for accessing the house, where to find things, how to get in touch, etc. There is not one bad photo from the night - all of the architecture, design, and landscaping made beautiful backgrounds for photos. Seriously, amazing photos!!!

It was easy to coordinate with vendors - we had a food truck set-up outside, the rental company delivered tables and chairs with access right by the front door (with a few steps), DJ had great spots to set-up his equipment, and catering made use of TONS of table and counter space already in the house.

Parking was easy as long as you give your guests signs and directions. We had more of a formal event so I had golf carts making rounds to pick guests up from their car and drive them up the hill driveway to the door.

The only problem we had was not much in our control. Our event was at the end of August, so it was extremely hot outside. All of the moving in and out all day, doors constantly opening/closing, made it hot inside the house during the ceremony and reception. If I could do it over, I would have rented the house the night before and had everything set up and ready so the house was nice and cool as guests arrived that evening.

I actually had a lot of my wedding party and guests tell me that the house would make a perfect place to have a weekend getaway, retreat, or small family reunion. Bedrooms have privacy. The pool and grilling area are perfect for entertaining and relaxing. I would be happy to talk to anyone interested in renting this venue. Thanks again to the Drenners!

Excellent Choice for Our Wedding

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing, very beautiful and a great place to hold our wedding. We had about 100 guests and we were able to set up a beautiful ceremony in the rotunda. We also had a great time in the pool area afterwards and a good time dancing in the house for the reception. The place was well maintained and clean and the owner was responsive to any questions or concerns. All in all was a good experience that our wedding guests won't forget, we keep getting compliments on how awesome it was. Overall would definitely recommend this property.

Absolutely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

First class amenities, decor and accommodations. This is a one of a kind property that has it all! We especially loved the extensive outdoor areas-multiple patios with gorgeous water views, lush landscaping, beautiful infinity pool with large beach entry (kids loved it!), and a unique 2nd story infinity hot tub. Wow!

We were here to spend quality time with family, but I can definitely envision hosting an event here. The property is truly spectacular!

The owners were extremely helpful in ensuring an enjoyable vacation experience.

Highly recommend!
