1600 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Kristi
9 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms

Overview

Want to get out and enjoy the natural beauty of South Texas while enjoying the comforts of home? Why camp when you can Glamp? Located between Pleasanton & the Choke Canyon Reservoir, our retreat is perfect for nature lovers, wildlife photographers, artists, bird watchers, hunters, fishermen, a "Momcation", and/or a girls weekend or get together! You can play games, sit around the firepit, bird watch, animal/wildlife watch, or just hang out to rest and enjoy the surroundings! If you just want to get away from the city and look at the stars, that is okay too. Join us for a slice of South Texas peace & quiet, with a little bit of adventure out in nature.

This 1,600 sq ft, air-conditioned, stucco and tile home sleeps up to 9 with up to 3 separate sleeping spaces and two bathrooms. The house is almost all one level with a few steps up to the porch and a few steps down to get to the master bedroom and patio.

Two Bathrooms
One Step-In Shower, one Bathtub, and one Clawfoot Tub will assure you that the kids who went swimming will be clean by dinnertime and the fishermen (& women) in your party don’t go to bed smelling of fish.

Fully Stocked Kitchen
This kitchen has all the pots, pans, & cooking utensils you need. Crockpot, Keurig, and blender are all available for your use as well as the usual kitchen appliances, including microwave and dishwasher. There is a large pantry so you can do your shopping on the way in and not have to head into town for a week.

Living/Dining
Relax on our comfy sofa while soaking up the AC in the midday heat. The open space living room/dining room with WiFi, Firestick, & HDMI enabled television allows you to keep the group together, whether you are watching a movie, playing an epic board game, or cooking a large meal together.

Star Gazing on the Back Patio
This is where the stars come to shine. After grilling up dinner on the gas grill & roasting marshmallows around the fire pit, take the telescope to the patio and watch the stars. See if you can name the constellations, or just convince someone that “the Fluffy Bunny is totally a constellation”. We also have horseshoes and cornhole for you to play on the lawn while you wait for the stars to appear. Week-long family tournaments are encouraged.

Dawn on the Front Porch
This is the quiet time. The time you get to have for yourself. Get your coffee, sneak out the front door, and enjoy the sounds of the world waking up in the dawn from the chairs on the porch.

You can read, do puzzles, play games, sit around the firepit, bird watch, animal/wildlife watch, or just hang out to rest and enjoy the surroundings!

Prime Location
Pleasanton is just north of Hindes Hideaway and hosts the Atascosa Flea Market every Friday in front of the Atascosa Livestock Exchange. You can also shop at the Royal Farmers Market on Saturday for fresh produce and heavenly baked goods.

Choke Canyon Reservoir is about a 50-minute drive to the east. Known for great boating and fishing, this is also a stop for many migratory birds and is teeming with wildlife.

If a trip into San Antonio for a day is on your mind, it is about an hour north. You can check out the Missions Complex by biking between them along San Antonio’s world-famous River Walk. Remember the Alamo! It is worth the drive to town.

Chaparral Wildlife Management Area is nearby as well and known for its hiking and wildlife, however, please check the website for seasonal openings.

The house is secluded but we ask that you stay in the yard in order to respect our neighbors and their property.

Pack your hiking boots, swimsuits, and camera equipment if you're planning a trip to Choke Canyon or Chapparal. This is going to be a getaway you want to get back to, year after year.

We have Hunting & Fishing Connections in the area and are very resourceful! If you are interested in booking a private paid hunt or fishing trip nearby, ask when you inquire about booking our lodge!

A guided hunt on a nearby private ranch is an excellent way to make sure that your party enjoys their time out in the brush while also getting the best that the area can offer.
We have contacts that specialize in:
Dove
Quail
Whitetail deer
Turkeys
Exotics (like Axis, Blackbuck, Fallow, White Sika, Nilgai, Gemsbok, Oryx, Red Stag, Aoudad Rams & Paint Rams)
and more

We also have Choke Canyon Fishing Guide Contacts.

Other Things to Note

WiFi
We have an AT&T Hotspot for WiFi.

We do not offer refunds or discounts if you happen to see bugs/pests/wildlife/non-venomous and venomous snakes that you are not familiar with or may scare you.

There are no video or audio devices of any kind in any living area within the home.

The home is very creative, airy and full of spirit. If your expectations are pristine homes and perfect green lawns, this place is not for you. But if you are looking for a place that is clean, personality rich, stylish and an amenity full space in the south Texas Brush Country, this is your place! Hideaway in Hindes is for anyone looking to relax and take a step back from the everyday hustle and bustle of life.

We have tried to describe the home and its furnishings as accurately as possible. Sometimes the owner will redecorate and/or remove an item, or discontinue a service after the information has been published. Due to Required Cleaning Policy we have removed all excessive decorative throw pillows, colorful quilts, pillow shams & fluffy throws. However, we will continue to make sure the home is always comfortable and functioning properly for our guests.

Kristi
Owner
Hideaway in Hindes was our first home together after we married. Kristi was born and raised in the area, while I moved here later. Now we are growing some roots! We are always looking for our next adventure! Our latest adventure is sharing our cozy cottage with our awesome guests! We are on-site and available to help with needs and/or restaurants and entertainment locally or in San Antonio. We also enjoy visiting our Vacation Concan Rentals near the Frio River in Concan, Texas.

We're super resourceful and knowledgable should you need a caterer for your group of 9 or less, we can make recommendations. You must plan ahead and arrange for this in advance should you need this in addition to your lodging.

Also should you need a fishing guide at Choke Canyon, we can make recommendations. This must be arranged in advance also.

Being that we are resourceful locals who have many connections to hunting ranches in the area, we can also get you hooked up to book your next hunt, whether you are looking for dove, qual, turkey, whitetail or something exotic like axis, blackbuck or something else.

Kristi is also a licensed realtor, where her team specializes in South Texas Ranches should you be interested in buying or selling a piece of south Texas!
