About Shiloh Collins

Phil and Peggy Collins bought this property in December 2015. They purchased their first home on the Blanco River ( The Great Escape ) about 10 years ago, and it is only about 1/4 mile away. On average, they have added about one new luxury home per year since then. They live in Wimberley for the majority of the year, and spend the hotter months at their home in Colorado ( Above The Clouds ). They make these homes nice for their own use, and for their guests as well. The secret to their success is by providing large homes that sleep lots of people, but all on acreage for privacy, and then providing multiple areas that allow the guests to spread out, and not all be underfoot.

Shiloh Collins purchased this house in 2015

Why Shiloh Collins chose Hill Country

This property was purchased for the view, the privacy provided by 33 acres, and a really cool large home. It is ideal for entertaining, with many areas that allow your group to spread out ( front porch view, back porch view, hot tub, game room, 3 fireplaces, etc, etc, etc ).

What makes this house unique

360 degree views, a cooling wind always blowing at the top of the hill, high end luxury, a great game room, Open format kitchen and living room, and every convenience that you need to make this a successful outing for your family, friends, or corporate group. Every item in the house was purchased new in June 2016, so this is not leftovers from someone's house.

Fabulous Gal Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight were overwhelmed by the beautiful accommodations at the Grand View Escape home. We go on annual trips and this was one of the best that we have had. The home and views were just gorgeous and everything was so warm and welcoming. We were able to enjoy the hot tub one evening, but the weather turned too cool for the newly installed swimming pool. It was so close to town and enjoyed a bit of lunch and shopping, but couldn't wait to get back to the house for more enjoyment. We really enjoyed the front porch and saw a fox, friendly roadrunner, lots of hummers and beautiful views. We sure hope to be back in the future. Shiloh was a wonderful host and very helpful. Great place to be!!!

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

Grand View is amazing. The pictures don't do it justice, which was great cause when we got there we were in awe of the views. Sits on a high hill that overlooks beautiful scenery. The house comfortably housed 5 couples with a couple small children. The bedrooms are spacious. The bathrooms are modern. And the attention to detail is impecable. This is the 3rd house we've rented in Hill Country and this one by far had the most to offer. Whether it was a large gathering place by the open kitchen, or the back deck, our family always had room to be together. The kids enjoyed the pool and hot tub for the majority of our stay. There were plenty of towels and toiletries in the bathrooms and the kitchen had every appliance and utensil imaginable. This house also has a game room in the garage that even the grown ups took over. We played skee-ball, pool, shuffle board, while listening to the radio.... It's also about 15 minutes from downtown Wimberley, so we didn't take half a day driving to buy groceries. Not enough can be said about the owners of this property. They are SUPER nice and respond to questions very quickly. We went in with high expectations, and they were surpassed.

Perfect home for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Grand View was the perfect home for our couples vacation. We had a group of four couples staying plus one single friend, so the home was the perfect size for our group. The home had everything that we needed, and we were very comfortable. It rained for part of the trip, but that didn't matter. The game room provided fun for the guys and the girls spent lots of time on the front porch, which had an incredible view. We have already talked about returning to the home in the future when we have kids. The owners are finishing up building a pool in the back, which looks like it will be beautiful when it is finished and the perfect finishing touch to an already amazing home. We will recommend this home to our friends and family.

Great place for an easy and fun vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Grand View Escape for several days over Spring Break. There were four families and we fit perfectly. The kids (and adults) absolutely loved the garage game room. The loft bedroom the kids slept in was perfect in that they were pretty separated from the adults. Hot tub was great. Front porch views were to die for with plenty of seating for all of us. Beautiful place. We used the firepit in back each night. Pool wasn't quite done, but is going to add so much for the summer travelers. Super spacious house so members can separate if they want to and not feel on top of each other. House was well equipped and we didn't really have anything not there that we needed. We also did Wimberly zip lining and it was so fun! We will definitely be back and couldn't recommend this place any higher.

SIBLINGS and their spouses REUNION

  • 5 of 5

This is a GREAT place -- we did not need all the rooms and beds -- each couple had their own room!

First and foremost: it was very clean. And no bunk beds. More than enough kitchen utensils.

It rained most of the time we were there and still the views were fantastic. The outdoors area was wonderful -- even cooked in the rain. The pool will be a wonderful addition when it isfinished. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! For adults/families with children/seniors.

Breathtaking View and Fanastic Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay at Grand View Escape in Wimberley, Texas. This property had so many unique qualities (marvelous view, game room, expansive front porch) and attention to detail (well-maintained, attractive interior design, thoughtful upgrades). The view was even better than advertised. My early morning run down the hill road revealed two separate groups of deer roaming the estate. I cannot imagine a better choice for a relaxing hill country getaway.
