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.

Absolutely Beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented from VRBO for 10 years or so...

This is one of the most beautiful houses to rent... we had such a great time here! The house is so great you just don’t want to leave... if it had a hot tub I probably wouldn’t have lol!!!We celebrated my husband’s 50th B-Day with family & friends...Not far from Gruene which is one of our favorite places to go...Will definitely rent here again & again!!!

Amazingly Perfect!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I planned my mom's 75th surprise birthday party and was looking for the perfect location for us to have it. It was just myself, my husband, my brother and my mom's best friend who flew in from Denver. I planned for months preceding our stay, and when we finally arrived to the house, I was blown away. So incredibly gorgeous! Every single thing about the house was perfect. Brenda made sure we had what we needed and even allowed us to arrive a bit early to decorate before my mom arrived. I could not have imagined a more beautiful and special time to give to my mom on her special day and I am counting the days when we can go back and stay, because we are absolutely planning to! Thank you, Brenda! We will see you soon!

Beautiful home and setting

  • 5 of 5

Great trip with Mom and 3 grown children with spouses. It was the perfect home to relax, enjoy the scenery and company, eat and play games!!! One couple in our group has already booked the home for a trip next summer and the entire group plans to have a redo of this trip in the near future!
