About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Why stay in a hotel when you can be king or queen of your own private hill country ranch? Rancho MIrando is a private ranch featuring a four thousand square-foot hacienda located on fifty acres along the famous 'Devil's Backbone' - one of the most famous scenic tours in Texas. This jewel sits on top of a hill with three hundred and sixty degree panoramic views that are never ending. With expansive decks throughout the gentle breeze can be enjoyed by all. At the entrance are beautiful, tall wooden doors giving way to the tastefully designed interiors. Boasting furnishings and décor imported from all over the world, this place has it all - including open living, kitchen and dining areas. There are four luscious bedrooms, each of which has its own distinctive theme. No expense has been spared in this meticulously designed showplace which is also perfect for large scale entertaining (for up to 200 people). We are proud to announce that Rancho Mirando has been rated by local brides and voted The Knot Best of Weddings 2012! WEDDING RATES ARE DIFFERENT THAN RENTAL RATES.

Enjoy a wonderful dinner admiring the sweeping views through the expansive sliding wooden doors that can be opened to allow the fresh air to circulate through-out the room. On those chilly nights dine indoors in the roomy dining table which sits ten comfortably. The kitchen is a chef's delight, very open, large and unique floor plan that allows room for many assistant chefs. The lovely breakfast table is open to the kitchen as well, providing seating for eighteen including the four stools at the bar and the dining table for ten. This home features beautiful Talavera tile that flows through the entire house. The den offers a 60 inch flat screen television for that great movie you have been waiting to watch with your friends and family. The adjacent sitting room is the place to snuggle up next to the fire and enjoy a great novel. The windows in the circular room provide another place to view the incredible Hill Country and the wild life that goes with it. There are two separate master suites with king size beds, each with their own private bathrooms. Then up to the third bedroom, the Cloud Room, where you will find a queen size bed. For the girl's getaway weekend or for the kids, the fourth bedroom, The Treehouse Room provides two custom bunk beds that uniquely have queen size beds for the lower bunks and full size beds for the upper bunks. Wow, you can feasibly house six adults or eight children in this one room arrangement. If you are more the 'nature lover' take a hike through the three thousand plus lavender plants and the eighty six olive trees ( which are quite rare in Texas) or take a rest on one of the many benches installed throughout this area and watch the magnificent peacocks as they span their feathers and talk to each other. Peacocks and turkeys roam freely on this property. After your fifty acre hike the cool water of your sparkling, private pool will feel so good when you jump in. If you aren't a swimmer just relax in the comfortable lounge chairs and enjoy the spectacular view. Rancho Mirando also has a well-outfitted kitchen outdoors including a large iron smoker, propane grill, sink, refrigerator and seating. We invite you to stay with us and experience the majesty and epic beauty that both the home and the stunning vistas of the Hill Country have to offer.

Amazing views! Fully stocked!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't say anything we didn't love about our class reunion getaway. 360 degree views with a fully stocked house that met all the needs of singles couples and babies. Great pool and outdoor lights. Great fire pit! Eclectic decor kept us on our toes! Thank you so much! Until next time!

After several years, we finally got our four adult children and our grandchildren in one place at the same time, and this home was wonderful. The house and grounds were outstanding. We had everything we needed there for a comfortable stay. The pool area was beautiful and we so enjoyed our time together in this mission style home. We are already talking about returning for another trip!

I stood up in a wedding at Rancho Mirando last May and the best word to describe the place is magical! Leslie was a rockstar and made sure every detail was perfect and every moment lived up to the bride's dreams. This was by far the most breathtaking wedding venue I have been to! If you are looking for a beautiful unique venue with owners that are there to support you every step of the way Rancho Mirando is the way to go!

Pristine property with some of the best views in Texas

  • 5 of 5

I came here for a summer floating trip with a large group of friends and we could not have been more pleased with the property. The house was clean and contained everything we needed and more, and it has some of the best views you can find in Texas. I highly recommend this property.

A Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Rancho Mirando for our ladies' retreat. The home is absolutely gorgeous, well furnished, and provided plenty of space for our guests. The property is beautiful, and despite the July Texas heat, we still enjoyed the pool, the grounds, all of the amazing flowers, plants, wildlife, and of course, coffee on the patio with amazing views. It was peaceful and relaxing. If you want to feel like you are far, far away without actually being too far, I highly recommend staying at Rancho Mirando. Wimberley is a quick 10 minute drive, and there you can enjoy shopping, restaurants, and the quaint downtown area that is so popular. We will be back.

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property was flawless. The description is exactly right and the photos, beautiful as they are, can't capture the amazing views. The kitchen and bathrooms are fully stocked with blenders, a double oven, plenty of plates/cups/serving items, and bath amenities like shower gel and hair dryers.

We spent the long weekend lounging by the pool and listening to the waterfall. In the evening, we walked around the property, ate pork tacos and corn roasted on the large propane grill, and watched the sun set over the Texas hill country. Everyone slept well in comfortable beds with plenty of extra pillows and blankets for an afternoon nap on the couch. The property is gated so we felt very safe.

I couldn't recommend Rancho Mirando more highly: the property is great, the house is a dream and easy to get to from San Antonio or Austin. We flew in to SAT and rented a car for a great price.
