About the property

The ranch has 640 acres that are abundant with native texas wildlife (White Tail, Turkey, etc ) and common exotic wildlife that exist in the hill country (Axis, Aoudad, Black Buck Antelope, etc ).

Two decks that run the canyon side of the home can be enjoyed for wildlife viewing / photography or just relaxing. Dinner time can be enjoyed with a well appointed kitchen or use one of the smoker / barbecue grill on the patio next to a fire pit. This would be a great time to use wildlife binoculars for the Moon or Planets; but a telescope is even better! Wifi is available to help in looking up those answers to the 'questions' that were brought up over the marsh mellow roast or a glass of wine. The Lodge even boast a spacious garage that darts can be thrown or a make shift dance site during inclement weather. Amenities continued include a large comfortable sitting area for visiting or reading. Dinning indoor will be easy at the 8 place table and the 4 seat spacious kitchen bar.

Great for big group with kids.

  • 5 of 5

You will want to contact the owner directly via their phone as the VRBO messaging service didn't put me in contact with her whatsoever. The property was great. Very spacious. We put all of the kids in two different bunk rooms downstairs and they had a large game room to play in (not to mention we could hardly hear them.) The adults (4 couples) all had separate rooms upstairs. We gave the master bedroom to the family with a baby, and there was plenty of room for their pack n play.

I was worried about the pool set up with the kids, but it was perfect. Just walk out onto the HUGE porch and around to the other side of the house and enter the pool there. It was never a problem to keep an eye on them. The kids loved having a pool the whole time, and the parents could just sit on the porch in the shade and watch them. No sunburns!

There was plenty of room for everyone to eat and cook food. Very open floor plan.

VERY CLEAN throughout the entire house!

Don't plan on using the internet. Owner said it would be slow, but it was so weak that you couldn't even load a single thing. One of us had some work to do and wound up having to drive 40 minutes away to get service to submit some work projects. However, you CAN get a slight cell signal if you're on the corner just off of the pool area.

Definitely plan to lay out on the porch at night and check out the stars. It was breathtaking and you could see everything. No light pollution whatsoever. The kids saw a ton of shooting stars and loved that.

One day we went tubing on the Frio and asked the locals where they went. Everyone suggested Happy Hollow, which was about 15-20 minutes away. Their staff was very nice and we floated their route, which took about 2 hours. All of the kids did great on the river! Very family friendly, no crazy college kids or anything like that.

Checkout was fairly simple, although I was a bit overwhelmed at the 9 page checkout packet! :-D

Anytime I needed ANYTHING, I was able to text the owner and she was always very quick to reply and extremely helpful. Would definitely rent from her again!!!!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

We had a WONDERFUL week at this property. The home is definetly designed for a family vacation. There is plenty of room, and space. Perfect location for a getaway with teenagers. Close to Garner State Park - yet far enough away to really enjoy the vistas and privacy. Recommend it highly.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5

WHAT A GREAT TIME WE HAD CELEBRATING A 60TH BIRTHDAY AT PUERTO CIELO WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY! THE BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED AND SPACIOUS RANCH IS JUST PERFECT FOR FUN FAMILY TIMES. WE ENJOYED THE POOL TABLE, PIN BALL MACHINE, AND OUTDOOR BBQ AREA! SAW TURKEYS, DEER, AND HOGS THROUGHOUT OUR FIVE NIGHT STAY ON THE RANCH. WE WERE A BIT DISAPPOINTED THAT THE INDOOR POOL WAS NOT HEATED, BUT ENJOYED HIKING AND WATCHING WILDLIFE INSTEAD. THE BEDROOMS WERE COMFORTABLE AND LARGE, AND WE CERTAINLY APPRECIATED THAT EVERYTHING WAS WORKING PROPERLY. IT WAS VERY QUIET AND SECLUDED AT THIS RANCH AND WE WERE TREATED TO A BEAUTIFUL LIGHT SHOW WHEN A THUNDERSTORM ROLLED THROUGH THE HILLS ON OUR LAST NIGHT! WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY TO ANY LARGE GROUP.
