Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

This "Little Cabin in the Woods" is a house of 2s. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas, 2 sheds on 2 acres. Open galley kitchen functions well. Large porch provides lovely respite nestled in the trees. Wimberley is an artists' community just south of Austin in the beauty of Texas hill country. Nearby open spaces and rivers provide opportunities to hike, swim, and raft. The stars at night really are big and bright; Wimberley is one of only three Texas communities recognized by the International Dark Sky Association. The area is also known for its galleries, boutiques, wine tasting rooms, and unique restaurants.
Make the short drive to Austin to experience world-class museums, music venues, golf courses, restaurants, theater, and more. Or, take the slightly longer, scenic drive to explore San Antonio's Riverwalk, the Alamo, and El Mercado. Venture through the heart of Texas wine country with a visit to Fredericksburg. Our main home is in Houston, which we may also be able to make available for your use.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We are at the top of a hill, surrounded by trees. Although we are less than 5 miles from the heart of Wimberley, and just 30 miles from Austin, the neighborhood around the cabin is rural. Every home sits on 2 acres or more of heavily treed property. Deer and other wildlife abound.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

For outdoor enthusiasts, hike up nearby Mount Baldy, or make the drive to Enchanted Rock, hiking to the top enjoying views as you go. Rent a kayak or canoe for white water rafting on the Guadalupe River, or hop in a tube at other spots for a relaxing float. Swim in Wimberley's famous natural swimming holes, Blue Hole and Jacob's Well, or go boating on nearby Canyon Lake, or Austin's Town Lake. Stop in Austin to rent bikes; there's much to explore on two wheels.
Golfers have a large number of beautiful hill country courses available. Check out Vaaler Creek in Blanco, Fazio Canyons in Austin, Lady Bird in Fredericksburg, La Cantera in San Antonio, or one of the many other courses out our way. Tennis players may enjoy the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch in nearby New Braunfels.
Wine lovers can explore many vineyards and wineries along the Texas Wine Route, beginning in Wimberley. There are a variety of other farms and tasting rooms to explore including those producing olive oil, whiskey, and rum. There's a family chocolatier sharing products from their Venezuelan cocoa plantation.
Dining options in Wimberley vary from established cafés and restaurants, to food trucks and newer trendy restaurants. Head to Austin for the many great cuisine options, or San Antonio for authentic TexMex.
For art enthusiasts, Wimberley is home to some lovely galleries. Many offer workshops and classes for those inspired to create some art of their own. Silo Glass is a lovely shop to visit, and offers glass fusing classes that allow even beginners to create something wonderful. Austin and San Antonio have a wide range of fantastic galleries. Art museums, like the Blanton in Austin or the McNay in San Antonio, are also well worth an art-lover's time.
Music lovers and musicians alike come to hill country, where live music is available somewhere in town nightly. Gruene Hall, Texas's oldest dance hall, has a great slate of musicians, Austin's legendary 6th Street is always hopping, or explore some of the smaller venues where you'll hear everything from blues to country to jazz to rock.
Want to relax? Sit on the front porch and welcome the visiting deer, hummingbirds, migrating flocks of robins (when you hear hundreds of robins singing at once, it's the most amazing chorus!), and the occasional fox.
