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.

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.

Serenity on the hill!
What a wonderful weekend getaway! We enjoyed the cool Hill Country air from the private patio and rested easily in the cozy quarters. We'll remember Casa Roca the next time we visit the Ingram/Hunt area. Thank you!
Cozy, clean, and well-appointed, Casa Roca was a nice place to chill after teaching at the Hill Country Art Foundation in Ingram. It was apparent that a lot of thought had gone into the fun, round building!
Unique Round Vacation Cabin
Loved our time spent at Casa Roca! Although it was quite cold this January, sufficient heaters were provided to keep us warm. Bed is very comfortable. Everything we needed was stocked in the kitchen. Would recommend and would return if we have a chance.
Our "going camping" vacation spot
We LOVE campfires and star gazing, so this is our place to come to. Been twice; everything great. Everything you need to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner. Outside porch with grill. Bed comfortable. Since we no longer have our RV, we consider this place our "upgraded RV" lol. Debbie & Ed, December 2017
Very relaxing stay
Kitchen is well stocked with everything one would need for simple meals. Bed comfortable and plenty of pillows. Came mainly for the campfires at night and star gazing. Love the round shape of the room and furniture comfy. A/C worked well, especially with high humidity outside late in the day. Visited by two kittens, a black terranula, bunny rabbits and lots of birds (Cardinals).
Cute and Country
Got off to a bit of a rough start, when the name and number of the person we were to call to gain access had not worked for the owner in several years. That woman probably doesn't like receiving calls from guests still. But we found the new property manager next door and after that, it was delightful. The cabin is small, but very comfortable for two people. We made friends with the dogs and cats next door, and enjoyed feeding and watching the birds (bird seed was provided). There is a fire pit out back with a pretty view of the Hill Country and we enjoyed sitting out there both during the day, and in the evenings. It was only 2 1/2 miles into Ingram, and John's market. You'll enjoy meeting John. There is a little bit of road noise from the highway, but only noticeable when you are sitting outside. You have to really watch out when you are coming to the cabin, because the entrance is hard to spot, and it's just over the crest of a hill. We drove past it a couple times before we got the lay of the land. The owner checked in with us during our stay, and check out was a breeze. You will really like Rachelle, the new property manager, and her family. They are nice people. All in all, it's a fun experience being in a small cabin out in the country. We're planning to stay a little longer than a week the next time.
many summer camps in area
