About Michael Easterling

We have enjoyed our Hill Country getaway for the past 12 years. The rest of the world will melt away as soon as you see the beautiful Hill Country scenic views, either from the expansive decks or from any room. We have a few favorite spots we like to sit and enjoy the colorfully generous sun rise and sun sets. Come find yours at our beautiful Point of View.

Michael Easterling purchased this chateau / country house in 2006

Why Michael Easterling chose Pipe Creek

The view and serenity is why we chose this home originally. We love the deck all the way around the house on the second level and the heavy timber structure.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We have decks and sitting areas at many levels all around the home and property. The deck on the second level (main level) goes 360 degrees around the house with amazing views you have to see to believe. It is a 'cool' spot in the dog days of summer as it sits just about tree level and almost always has a good breeze. Even our rare rainy days can be a pleasure from this vantage point.

The outdoor kitchen and dining space are my personal favorites as they have their own unique view of the hills over our terraced garden.

Or you can relax in the hammock (my wifes favorite) at the secluded smaller mid-level deck tucked into the trees.

Fire pit Note- While we love for our guests to enjoy the use of the Fire Pit, we have a few rules. 1. Propane is used as a starter and should not be left on while logs are lit. 2. We can not use fire pit during the Bandera County burn bans 3. put out the fire with water when you are finished. Do NOT wait for it to burn out.

Amazing views and so relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, the views amazing. So quiet and the breeze on the balcony keeps you comfortable no matter what the temperature outside. A perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine and a good book. Bandera is just a few minutes away with good restaurants, cute shops and so much fun to walk around. We can't wait to come again!

The pictures do not give the house or view from the house justice! Both are absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and 4 other couples drove about 6 hours to stay at Point of View, and we would do it again next weekend! Michael was easy to communicate with before, during, and after our stay. The house was stunning and so much fun to stay in, with lots of community areas and plenty of space for privacy. We went to the area to float the Medina River, though, unfortunately, it rained the whole time. But we had such a wonderful experience, regardless! We are already planning our next trip for 2019!

One of the best rental home we have ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very peaceful setting. My family enjoyed this home. Mike was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We saw humming birds and deer. One doe even approached us and let us touch her! Cooked on the outdoor grill every night! The views are spectacular! My family will definitely be back!

Houston, Texas

Beautiful home in the heart of the Texas Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a family reunion/summer vacation at this property. The house is very large, fits 10 people comfortably and has all the amenities you would ever need for a vacation in the Texas Hill Country. Lots of state parks, outdoor recreation opportunities, quaint towns and scenic drives nearby. But the most striking thing about this home is its location. Its located on top of hill in Pipe Creek, with amazing views all throughout the house of the nearby hills under a very peaceful and quiet atmosphere. The home is also well maintained and very clean. If you are looking for a peaceful, serene place with gorgeous views and have all the comforts of a luxury home while still getting that "rustic cabin" feel of the Texas outdoors, this is the place for you! Our entire family had a blast and great time during our stay and we plan to return again in the near future!
