We're high enough on the hill to have tree top views of the Guadalupe River Valley and just a short hike down the trail to the home owner association river park with canoes, kayaks, barbecue and rope swing. There is a private dam just below the park so the water stays high even in the driest summers.
The house will sleep nine: There is a queen bed and private bathroom with tub in the master. The upstairs bedroom has its own balcony and private bathroom with shower. The middle two bedrooms have a trundle bed (2 singles - great for kids), a single and double bed and share a bath with laundry room.
The dining area seats eight – six at the table and two at the breakfast bar, but one of the highlights is the outdoor dining space. The family room has a high beam ceiling and a glass door with sidelights to enjoy the view and let the breeze in. If you can’t leave your technology at home there is wireless internet and satellite TV. The house has every amenity needed for a comfortable stay (oven, fridge, dishwasher, fresh linens, etc). Nothing extra is needed; just bring some groceries, a bathing suit and free time to enjoy it!
Outside we have two spacious decks with Hill Country views. Drink your morning coffee on the side deck and watch the sun rise. Enjoy an evening glass of wine while star gazing on the front deck. Guests often see deer and fox passing through the yard. There is a hammock, a porch swing, and outside eating area with gas grill.
Small dogs considered individually. Dogs weighing less than 20 pounds will be allowed on prior approval only with a pet charge of $10 per day per pet, $500 refundable pet deposit, and a non-refundable pet cleaning fee of $50. No cats as the owner is severely allergic.
We just got a wireless extender - Verizon & ATT cell service is good at the house, but not at the river park or on the road to the house. No guarantee though, this is the country.

Danny grew up in Del Rio and San Antonio and has family in and around Kerrville. He introduced Michelle to Texas Hill Country in Hunt. The area is a great reminder of Michelle's ranching roots in western South Dakota. We both fell in love with Hunt and the beautiful cypress tree canopy along the Guadalupe on one of Michelle's first visits to Texas.
We stayed at many vacation rentals in the area before we decided we could really retire here. The accessibility of the river park without the riverside price was what drew us to this particular house. It feels so private - other riverside rentals we stayed in have neighbors right next door or multiple rentals on-site. In this house, even though we're in a subdivision, it feels like we're out in the country.
We live full time in Anchorage, Alaska and plan to spend more time each year at our home in Hunt. We have just a few years to go before we can start being full time snowbirds!
