Why Monica Dillon chose Hempstead
This is a family property where we went almost every weekend and summers when I was growing up. We are out of state most of the time now and do not get to visit is as often as we would like so we are opening it up to others to enjoy our serene getaway property.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The property is secluded and offering peace and privacy. It allows you to unwind and forget about the stress and worries of the outside world. Comfy 2+ person quilted hammock.

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy a little time in the country!
This was the perfect place for my family to stay, coming from Dallas and Houston for my son's wedding at a nearby ranch. The home was clean and comfortable with ample space inside and out to gather together for meals and games, or have quiet time alone. My 10 year old nephew loved the tree swing, pond and lake for exploring and fishing, horseshoes, bumper pool and board games. Too bad the weather was chilly and he couldn't enjoy the pool! The kitchen had space for all of our food and drinks and was well equipped with pots and pans to cook all of our meals. I would highly recommend this as a get away for a small group of friends or family. Great place for quality time! Would definitely like to return!
So glad you all had a great time! Hope to see you again -
Nice quiet property near Brenham!
We stayed for a girls' weekend two weeks ago and really enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean, and the bed upstairs in the master was really comfortable. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped and we appreciated finding a second coffee maker as the primary one out on the counter was broken. The pool was super clean and we wished it had been a bit warmer, we'd love to come back sometime and take advantage of it!
A few things to note:
-Wifi didn't work for any of us on any of our iPads, laptops, other devices; we alerted the property manager and was told that sometimes it doesn't work very well when it rains (?). It didn't work at all, rain or shine, and that was a drag as one of us needed to do a bit of work over the weekend. She ended up having to drive into Brenham for wifi at a coffee shop
-The living area is not ideal for lots of lounging. We had a total of six and for all of us to sit around together, two people were on the floor. There are a lot of rather uncomfortable couches in the room, they just aren't laid out well for group conversation
-When it's check-out time, you better leave! We had vacated the house before the deadline hour but we were sitting outside on the patio saying good-byes and just enjoying a few last minutes together, anticipating the arrival of the cleaning lady. Less than 20 minutes after official checkout time, the care-taker was calling me asking if we had a problem. That was a bit of a drag, but all in all, the home is nice and well kept and suited our needs for the weekend.
Thanks for the notes Robin-
We did get the internet fixed first thing on Monday morning. Sorry that was inconvenient for you.
Also - our maid is a bit shy and speaks only Spanish, and she was waiting until you all left to get started. I apologize if you felt rushed.
Glad you had a good stay though and got to relax!
A wonderful stay for our ladies weekend birthday getaway! So cozy and the pool was wonderful.
Peaceful Get Away
My wife and I have stayed in VRBO rentals domestically and internationally over the last 15 years. This is one of our favorites. The home is exactly what the owners say it is... That's hard to find.
Peaceful country home with absolutely gorgeous natural surroundings. Perfect place for those looking to get away while not being completely off the beaten path. Bill was helpful. We will rent again which to us says it all. Thank you Bill and Monica
So glad you had a great time! Monica
Absolutely nice, clean and restful
Very nice home if you are looking for peace and rest. The kitchen is convenient with everything you need. It even has two refrigerators and two ovens. Perfect for family get togethers! Master bedroom is solely upstairs and private with 2 bathrooms! ( Nice and quiet at the end of the day). Fishing and swimming are wonderful with the pool being pristine! Again, just a perfect get away. Thank you very much for the opportunity and your hospitality. Just Awesome!
So glad you had a wonderful time!
Great property. Wonderful weekend with the grandkids.
Loved the property. Well maintained. Extremely clean. When they say to just bring clothes and food they mean it. Everything else is there. Exactly what we were looking for to spend some quiet time with our family. Thank you for offering up your beautiful home. It is wonderful.
Area around house and woods have a lot of wildlife.
