About Randall Stout

I am involved in real estate in San Antonio and the surrounding area. I have lived in the San Antonio area for 20 plus years.

Randall Stout purchased this house in 2015

Why Randall Stout chose Spring Branch

The home was built in 2015 with this guest home designed specifically as a vacation rental. The home looks out to the Knibbe Ranch which is one of a few Century Ranches left in Texas. Century Ranches are family owned ranches that have been continually operating for over 100 years. The incredible views, the Guadalupe River below, constantly changing views with the season and the abundant wildlife make this a one of a kind property.

What makes this house unique

I am familiar with dining, entertainment, historical interests, art museums, places to see, parks, etc... in San Antonio and the entire Hill Country area. Please feel free to ask me anything as I am always available to answer any questions and concerns.

Spectacular stay in the Hill Country

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Home- even better than the photos. Randall is extremely responsive and thought of every little thing. Our two kids spent the vast majority of their time in the pool and hot tub, when they weren’t using the pool table. My husband and I started every day drinking coffee on the balcony and watching the deer go by. In a word, heavenly.

This property is perfect in every way! My wife and two daughters stayed a week at this great house and we have nothing but great things to say about the house and also Randall. The Beds & Linens were super comfortable. The TV'S were easy to use and of good quality which was very important during a March Madness week! The overall layout of the house is great with the two main bedrooms, bath, kitchen, breakfast area and cozy living room all on the 2nd floor with a view that is better than you can even imagine! with a full length of the house second floor balcony overlooking the backyard and the VIEW. The basement also had a great set up with large living room, 2 garage doors that open so you get an incredible breeze. We made great use of the pool table and the Texas living room with big screen TV to watch all the games. There is also an extra full bath and dining area in this lower level space. You then walk out to a covered porch with a built in BBQ which we used probably 4 nights and the BBQ along with everything else was super easy to operate, had all the BBQ tools and even an LED attached light if you are grilling after dark. Then there is a great round flagstone patio with great furniture and a true masonry fire pit with real wood! We had fires several nights while we were there. Then there is the icing on the cake which is the pool and hot tub perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the guadeloupe river and the beautiful valley that is the historic Knibbe Ranch which is thousands of acres of quite, unbelievable views. There is plenty of wildlife to watch including herds of deer, cattle, eagles, etc. You can sit in the great flagstone rimmed hot tub and night and see stars forever. There is great bike riding/walking around the neighborhood with quiet streets aplenty. There are great parks nearby for hiking and Kayaking down the Guadeloupe river is a MUST. Great property, great management and look forward to creating many happy family memories as we were lucky enough to have. This is one of the best vacation rentals we have stayed in during all of our travels in the past 15 years. Thank you Randall!

Beautiful house and view!

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again! The house was perfect for our family of four. Randall thought of every detail and we had everything we needed and more. Every time I looked for something I found it. The pool/spa and view were also wonderful. The garage/game area was great for our two teenagers. It was fun seeing wildlife everyday. Good location for exploring San Antonio and Hill Country. I would definitely recommend this to families and couples alike. It was a wonderful vacation for all of us!
