Pros: Large space for a large group, good kitchen amenities, beautiful outdoors, owner quick to respond to issues. Cons: General poor and odd construction of home- pictures are not representative. 5 ft. drop off of porches unsafe for children. Unusual smell. Exposed pipes and …

Katie & John, Y’all were troopers out at the ranch the 3rd weekend in June in central Texas. Temps around 103. Your Friday’s arrive was very poor on my side as the host for not cooling the home, but in the summer I do not reside in the home and hence the AC is off when guests arrive. Very true to note. No, my home is not even close to children safety needs in 2018. My deck surrounded my home is 100 feet long by 50 feet wide and I have not built a railing around the deck, very true. Photos showing green grass and water are taken over the beautiful springtime in Central a Texas not the heat of the summer, otherwise same place. The cost $249 for 8 adults and 2 children a night seems reasonable. I appreciate the feedback and your welcome to come back in the spring.

I totally understand the smell, I used Lysol concentrate Disinfectant and it smells. Not going to use the original scent anymore. So, glad y’all enjoyed and played board games too! Pool will be open soon! Looking forward to seeing y’all this summer.

I celebrated my 30th birthday with 7 of my friends here and it was absolutely perfect. The house was endlessly entertaining and allowed for privacy when needed, but also has great open spaces for group hangouts. It’s very remote, so you can get away from the hustle and bustle and…

Peter, Thank you for writing this in our guest book “the trip ito nature was truly a spiritual experience. Your home was a wonderful compilation from the hot tub to the Meditation room. The houses character and charm sided in every way to our foray back to simpler times. Truly an experience we will never forget and were so thankful you opened over your home to us.”

I am from Texas and LOVE to scuba dive & travel the world. I can't live without water, swim in a lake, a river, an ocean just add water. I like to learn from the natives, the locals hang out and visit and share stories of life and travels. My favorite place, Raja Ampat, Indones…
