About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Welcome to Casa Roca – “The Rock House” with the soft touch. A perfect retreat to rest and revive, a romantic honeymoon getaway or a fun filled Texas vacation, Casa Roca can fit the bill. This unusual round rock house made from locally quarried limestone, is situated in the heart of the Hill Country, the “Front Door to the West” on a fenced 5 acres shared with two other homes, including the manager's cabin, each having its own private area and view of the beautiful hill country. The ambiance of Casa Roca is a blend of east and west with an eclectic mix of Bali decor and a touch of home grown Texas details.

Comfortable for 2 guests, Casa Roca has a queen bed with living room area, bathroom with shower, equipped kitchen, and a hill country view from the shade of the front porch. Amenities include WIFI, a dock station for your Ipod, DVD player with flatscreen TV, and a stocked bookcase to keep you entertained should you decide to forego the tourist exploration and just sit on the porch and breath in the country air. Also for your outdoor enjoyment you can enjoy the porch BBQ grill, and a fire pit for those starry nights.

Various species of birds and local wildlife regularly populate the many feeders on the property (bring your binoculars!) with a common streak of red as the resident cardinal birds flash by. The private courtyard has a garden of native plants with a path leading to the rocky hillsides which wind through the property.

The historic town of Old Ingram is a short drive up the road in addition to local art galleries and performance theaters. Nearby Johnson Creek and the Guadalupe River have a number of summer camps and the drives along the rivers make incredible scenery. You will find many nearby activities to enjoy including golf, canoeing, swimming holes and antique hunting to name a few. There are many restaurants, from gourmet to the best BBQ in Texas.

Easily navigated from Interstate I10, Casa Roca would be an ideal resting place for travelers heading east or west across the USA. Casa Roca is also less than 40 miles from the sister town of Fredericksburg, a great place to do your Christmas shopping.

The Hill Country is known for its numerous fairs and music festivals throughout the year, with the Kerrville Folk Festival and Wine and Music Festival a popular attraction. Conveniently close to many historic Hill Country destinations, Casa Roca is a perfect jumping off spot for exploring this area of Texas, with many popular destinations within an hour’s drive. The interesting city of San Antonio with the famous river walk and (don't forget) the Alamo is an hour away. And the happening city of Austin, capitol of Texas and home of Texas music, is a beautiful two hour drive through the Texas wine country and fields of seasonal blue bonnets and wildflowers.

A perfect retreat, romantic hideaway, or for the solitude of one, Casa Roca is a place which can be a comfortable home base for exploring the sights of Texas, or a comfortable retreat to rest and revive. Casa Roca is the perfect resting place for anyone finding a need to visit the Hill Country of Texas.

Your comfort and peace of mind is high priority and the on -premises property managers are available to assist with any questions, or to assure that your privacy is respected.

About sharon

Originally Mac is from Texas and Sharon is from N.J.. We met on the island of Andros in the Bahamas, and fell in love underwater in the blue seas. That was many years ago and we've since traveled the world.

Having lived for some years in Bali Indonesia, we were enchanted by the feel and beauty of the island, and have tried to bring a taste of that to our vacation homes for travelers to enjoy.

You'll find that we provide our traveler's vacation homes, Casa Rica, Casa Roca and Casa Bambu with a taste of the world and the heart of local love.

What makes this house unique

This area of Texas is considered the 'front door to the west'. From Ingram to the west is sparsely developed until nearing the west coast. Sitting on the front porch of Casa Roca, you can have the feeling of a time when things were less complicated.

Make a fire, gaze at the stars, breath in the country air - relax.

Sweet little house makes for a great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is precious! Mary, the property manager, was very helpful, as well as the owners. Not far from Ingram and Kerrville, we stocked up on grilling goods and breakfast foods at HEB before we checked in, then only left once to see a movie my husband was dying to see. Perfect place to slow down and celebrate our 10 year anniversary!

The house was clean, well stocked with linens, and in the kitchen. Outside offered a beautiful view! We didn't make use of the fire pit, it had rained and the cushions were wet, so we just sat on the porch and enjoyed nature.

I would suggest it to anyone looking for some quiet time!!

Clean, cosy and well equipped accomodation. We particularly enjoyed sitting outside enjoying the scenery and wildlife during the day ( bird and deer food included ! ) and the BBQ , log fires ( logs included, thanks ) and fabulous star shows in the evenings. Absolutely magical !

Cute, Peaceful, Clean Cottage in a Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Your cottage is a peaceful retreat from worldly cares. It was such a cute place in a beautiful setting. After a restful evening, we woke to the sound of birds and a beautiful morning view. Due to rainy weather, we were unable to stargaze - which is such as shame since the property provided such a grand view. We enjoyed sight-seeing in the area. We visited Luckenbach, Fredricksburg and Enchanted Rock. We did not have an opportunity to meet Mary or Sharon in person but communication was smooth and pleasant. Thank you for sharing your property with us.

Quiet and Comfortable experience!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Roca was a pleasurable experience for our first time in the Hill Country. Beautiful night skies around the fire pit provided hours of good conversation and star gazing, wood provided. Cool mornings watching birds and hummingbirds feeding was a joy, nectar and bird seed provided. The property was clean, cool and comfortable. Our maps application delivered us to the front door without a glitch. Excellent communication with the owners and property manager, responded to questions within minutes. Must be comfortable with the sounds, darkness and solitude of nature.

Perfect location in between our day trip to Fredericksburg, our day trip tubing in Bandera, and a day visit to Concan/Garner state park. Kerville/Ingram was a perfect central location.

Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Jerry and Cynthia F.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Roca is the perfect getaway for a single person, or a couple, looking for the simple things in life away from the hustle and bustle! It maintains the rustic appeal of a western style "cabin" without sacrificing the conveniences necessary for everyday living. If you're a person that doesn't require luxury Casa Roca is the place for your next adventure!

Thank you Sharon and Mac!

Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon stay at Casa Roca. It's loaded with character and was the perfect size for the two of us to enjoy our Texas Hill country stay. The location could not have been better for all of our daily excursions. We highly recommend this property. We will be returning.
