About Brenda Reinemund

My husband and I built this custom home 5 years ago named it the 'Rhino Ranch'. I work for an airline company and love to travel. I have been to almost every country in the world. I am fortunate to be able to work for an airline and fly for free where ever I go. My favorite destination was Sydney, Australia. We lived there for 3 years. My daughter was born in England as we also lived there for 4 years. I am from San Antonio, Texas and moved back home to be closer to family. My husband Glenn is retired and loves to work around the house and the yard. Our hobbies are collecting movies, reading good books, tennis (John Newcomb Ranch and T Bar M are only 10 minutes away), traveling, entertaining, cooking and hosting. Golfing is minutes away.

We would love to have you stay with us and have the vacation of a lifetime!

Brenda Reinemund purchased this house in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Scenic Hill Country Retreat exceeded all expectations for a holiday getaway. The spectacular views, the upscale hill country ambiance, the well organized and spacious kitchen/breakfast area and the outdoor fireplace made for one of our most memorable Christmas holidays-so nice to meet at a new setting instead of Houston or Dallas. The gorgeous Christmas lights,tasteful decorations around the house and the beautifully decorated Christmas tree made this a very special holiday weekend.

This place was great. Group was talking about renting again before we left.

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed. The view and amenities are great. We took advantage of the outdoor patio morning, noon and night. Having music indoors and out is a nice touch also. The media room is a real treat. The house has lots of space for everyone. Don't think we had anything negative to say about our stay, and that is after 10-12 women stayed 3 nights together! Even better than the pictures depict. 😀

This is a wonderful place to stay. From the music you can play via the computer throughout the house, to the private movie theater and fantastic view, this is a great place to spend a vacation. The house has everything you could ask for and more. The pictures are accurate but don't do it justice. Having breakfast on the porch every morning was amazing. It's serene and private. The house is really more like a resort than just a rental property. Every room in the house is spacious and well equipped. It's very clean. There is lots of room to spend time with the people staying with you or to go off for some private time. Its also a beautiful place. There is nothing negative about this house. It's a wonderful place to stay

On the practical side, the beds are comfortable. If you have a bad back, you'll most likely do fine. The master bedroom has its own private porch and also has access to the main porch on the back of the house. The bathrooms are luxurious, especially the master bath which has his and her vanities, a large soaking tub with a wonderful view, and a large shower. There is a crib and a cot in the master bedroom closet. The kitchen is well equipped. We cooked while we were there and we had everything we needed. The furniture is comfortable. There is a main living room area in the great room and also a sitting area with a rounded sofa in the large entry room. Every room has a great view. Every bedroom except one has a large private bathroom. The room that does not is only a few steps from a powder room. There is a spacious dining room with a large formal dining room table and chairs. There is a large capacity washer and dryer. We didn't think we would use the movie theater much, but ended up using it almost every night. The three sofas in the movie theater are very comfortable. There are over 1600 recent movies accessed through the video system so there are no DVDs. The owners clearly put a lot of time and effort into making the house everything you could ask for. The entire back of the house has a porch that can be accessed through the master bedroom, the entry room, the great room and one of the other bedrooms. The view is wonderful. There are two main sitting areas on the porch. One has large grill with a table and six chairs and the other has an outdoor sofa to relax on. There are also lots of throw pillows to help with comfort. This is one of the nicest places we have stayed. The house has the feel of a luxury retreat. We loved it

Awesome Place. Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

Rhino Ranch was beyond beautiful. As beautiful as the pictures are, they do not capture how marvelous this house is. Super clean, awesome floorplan. Had everything we needed plus more. Beds were super comfortable, the kids loved the theater room and the scenery was glorious. Excellent hospitality! We can't wait to return to this property.
