However, you are only 15 minutes from Whole Foods, theaters and tons of shopping and restaurants at the Hill Country Galleria. In the last few years some of the highest rated restaurants (Apis) are also nestled close by along with experiencing live music right down the road in "Willie’s backyard" (Poodies) and Angels.

We also have available a resource of information available upon your arrival on all of the areas local attractions, such as wine tours, boating, hiking and walking excursions, and so much more.

There is something for everyone.

Upon request and based on availability there is also a private USTA built tennis court across from the property on the owners ranch that can be enjoyed during the day.

The home also has a first class kitchen with main floor hard wood floors, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances including Dracor induction stove and convection microwave oven along with all of the other small appliances that you would need to make a simple or even gourmet meal!

There is also a smaller space on the second floor where the two large bedrooms reside with a widescreen TV and DVD system. Main Master Bedroom also has a TV and DVD system.

Great retreat with awesome privacy but close to hill country attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Christine greeted us upon arrival with chocolate strawberries and nice bottle of champagne. She is very friendly and provided good instruction on how to operate pool, spa, tv, etc. She was also just minutes away if needed. The house was awesome for my wife, 8 yr old and me. Plenty to keep the little one entertained whether is was the foos-ball, arcade game, x-box, pool table, pool or tv. Every bedroom had a tv and stocked with many books and movies for your pleasure. Separate gaming room with an x-box and games. Not to mention there is a basketball court just out the front door.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you would have at home. Access to washer and dryer so need to over pack. Comfy beds, sofa, pool side chairs make for great lounging time.

During the day we would go out and explore the beautiful hill country area. Just 40 minutes away is the Longhorn cave, about the same distance is a large ATV park near Mable Falls, several beautiful lakes around the area, many great restaurants and various natural swimming holes.

This VRBO is worth it and we will be back.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, from the gorgeous kitchen to the perfect pool! We did a girls weekend and couldn't have picked a better house. Christine was super helpful and answered all my questions quickly. She even surprised us with champagne and strawberries! The location is peaceful and perfect but close enough to austin and other areas to make a quick drive to restaurants and amenities. We are already trying to set dates for our next trip here! We didn't want to leave!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this beautiful home. It is our favorite home away from home. The home is private yet you are close to great places to eat and have fun. The pool and hot tub are so relaxing in this beautiful setting. There is so much to do in the home as well. Our son loved playing pool, basketball, volleyball, video games and even checkers. The beds are super comfortable. The kitchen is stocked and has excellent appliances. Cannot wait to be back in a few months.

A Perfect Peaceful Getaway

My family and I had a wonderful experience here. The owner, Christine, was very accommodating and was gracious host. The house was absolutely beautiful, you could tell that it was well kept up with. The kids loved the pool and spa. The house also had a basketball court, pool table, arcade machine, foosball and more. Your family will not get bored here. If you are looking for a private getaway this house is perfect.

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this amazing home. It was the perfect getaway for our family. You feel like you are in a private retreat in the middle of nowhere but are actually very close to restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. The home is beautiful updated with a comfortable living room and fully stocked kitchen. We lived in the heated pool and hot tub. We swam for hours. When my son was not in the pool he was playing on the sport court, playing arcade games (bring some quarters) or pool. The beds are very comfortable. This is now our go to place for fun and relaxation.

Dining in Austin:

Restaurant Austin




Wagyu beef with Carolina gold rice at Olamaie.

Taste that sticky barbecue sauce slathering the chicken at Olamaie’s lunch. It’s a little sweet and filled with umami. It has a deep auburn hue. Close your eyes and try and detect the acidic hint of tomatoes. You won’t find it.

Chefs Michael Fojtasek and Grae Nonas don’t use tomatoes to create their barbecue sauce. They rely on a recipe from about 150 years ago that uses salt-cured mushrooms to create the sauce that also includes sorghum, vinegar and onions.

#2: Barley Swine



Beet trifle at Barley Swine.

Bryce Gilmore has turned farm-to-table dining into an art form at his 5-year-old restaurant. Not many people champion local purveyors as strongly as Gilmore, and few can match his and his team’s ingenuity and creativity with the product.

The kitchen knows when to get out of the way and let ingredients shine, as with a refreshing crab salad topped with a sphere of Trinidad pepper sorbet. The team also takes ingredients and puts spins on them you didn’t know possible, such as using pinto beans to create miso butter for poaching a supple piece of snapper that sits atop a radish relish.

#3: Lenoir

1807 S. FIRST ST.


Roasted quail with ginger sweet potatoes mole braised greens and pecan granola.

With its billowy curtained windows, mismatched whitewash cabinetry and geometric light fixtures, the shabby chic bungalow is an escape to a relaxed but refined wonderland. Lenoir feels haphazard yet curated, both rustic and elegant.

The cuisine drives the transportive experience as much as the aesthetic. The menu is a global jaunt. With the term “hot-weather food,” chef Todd Duplechan has defined his cuisine and culinary point of view with impressive clarity and acuity. Using local and seasonal ingredients, he creates unique dishes that echo the flavor profiles of other parts of the world with climates similar to our own.

#4: Qui

1600 E. SIXTH ST.


Marinated tomatoes with eggplant, Parmesan mousse, ciabatta, mint and dill from Qui.

Paul Qui has always been so much more than “the guy who won ‘Top Chef’” (in resounding fashion, by the way). But since that is his most public appearance, it can be a helpful lens through which to view the man introduced to America by Bravo TV.

The show revealed Qui as curious, daring, playful, earnest, passionate and grounded. Those same qualities are showcased at the chef’s eponymous restaurant. The kitchen builds beautiful and compelling dishes, utilizing precise technique on display in the open kitchen. A tamarind braise sweetens squid that comes with sumptuous short rib on one beef preparation. On another version of the seven-course tasting menu, fish caramel glazed the smoked and grilled short rib accompanied by Cowgirl Creamery’s Red Hawk cheese. Binchotan (burning white oak) seared fish at one dinner, and toasted meringue wobbling atop corn pudding at another.

#5: Dai Due



Venison ceviche at Dai Due.

No restaurant feels more quintessentially Austin right now than chef Jesse Griffiths’ restaurant and butcher shop in East Austin. The chef-hunter-fisherman has been a fixture on the scene for years with his supper clubs and farmers market appearances, but the ruggedly handsome restaurant has given Griffiths a larger canvas for displaying his talent and his love of local produce and proteins.

The sourdough bread at Dai Due, all crust and floss, was created using a starter made with wild grape leaves foraged in an alley across from the restaurant. That genesis story encapsulates the from-scratch ethos of these locavores. The kimchi and red bean miso used in a hearty breakfast of brown rice and eggs are made in house, as is the sauerkraut and beet Thousand Island dressing found on the best pastrami sandwich in town.

More information

#6: Uchi / Uchiko



Nigiri: Madai Japanese sea bream, Norwegian mackerel, salmon belly, and spanish anchovy at Uchi.

Chefs and diners across town owe a debt of gratitude to Tyson Cole. Uchi changed the fine dining scene in Austin, proving Austinites’ palates were prepared for a new level of sophistication and experimentation. The bungalow on South Lamar that opened more than a decade ago paved the way for Austin Dining 2.0.

It wasn’t just creative preparation and quality sourcing that defined Uchi; it was a complete dining experience, from ambiance to place settings to sophisticated but not stuffy service. Uchi set the lofty bar for Austin dining, and it continues to reach the heights it established.
