Christine purchased this house in 2014
Peaceful and beautiful hill country ranch. You feel isolated and yet you are not far from all of the amenities. The home itself has the latest technology to keep all entertained. We even have a library of books and movies to be enjoyed on the premise.
6 private acres backing unto 2200 acres preserved Travis County land.
The house, the scenery, and the amount of nature surrounding everything was picturesque.
The pictures and description do not do this justice. The owner was more than accommodating and provided more than we even needed. This place is perfect for any occasion - we came here for a guys weekend and it was perfect. Highly recommend this place to anyone. We will definitely be coming back in the future with our families and will consider for any other occasions in the hill country as well. A+
The house and surroundings are beautiful and the landlord was accommodating for allowing us to be in earlier since my niece was graduating with her Masters and we had graduation at 6pm one hour away. They do keep an eye on the property being next door.
This home was exactly what we hoped, better than hoped actually. The home is wonderfully appointed and tastefully decorated with high end finishes. The area was serene and relaxing with abundant wildlife to be seen at dawn and dusk. Christine and Kevin were such warm and gracious hosts. Christine gave us a tip on a local winery and it was such a nice surprise. We aren't normally fond of TX wines but these were so good we purchased 6 bottles. We would have never visited this winery if not for the suggestion. The home location is perfect because you are close to anything you need but not so close that you can see neighbors. I highly recommend this property and look forward to returning again.
My family stayed here for 3 days back in June and absolutely loved it. Christine & Kevin couldn't have done a better job designing this place. We can't wait to go back later this month. They have a nice pool with Jacuzzi, Arcade Games, Foosball, Pool Table, Fire Pit and 4 wonderfully decorated Rooms. The View on the back patio was great and very peaceful. Plenty of property to go for nice walks. Close to plenty of outdoor adventure and Lake Travis or Hamilton Pools. 30 minutes from Downtown Austin but we didn't bother leaving the property. We highly recommend this for your family for a great get away in the Hill country. Stargazers will Love it. Thank you for a great stay. See you again real soon...
We are a family of four and stayed at this beautiful house during Spring Break 2016.
The peaceful setting, gorgeous views, spacious, comfortable house, pool, Jacuzzi and super nice owners all made our stay one of the most relaxing vacations we've had.
The pool and Jacuzzi are especially well designed and night swims were fantastic.
The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. The setting is quintessential Texas Hill Country.
The kitchen is modern and well appointed.
we are very picky and discriminating travelers and this fun place goes down as a family favorite.
Dining in Austin:
1610 SAN ANTONIO ST.
RODOLFO GONZALEZ / AMERICAN-STATESMAN
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.

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.
1807 S. FIRST ST.
RICARDO BRAZZIELL / AMERICAN-STATESMAN
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.
1600 E. SIXTH ST.
TOM MCCARTHY JR. / FOR AMERICAN-STATESMAN
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
2406 MANOR ROAD.
STEPHEN SPILLMAN / FOR AMERICAN-STATESMAN
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.
#6: Uchi / Uchiko
LAURA SKELDING / AMERICAN-STATESMAN
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.
