Property Description

Add some Texas magic to your next visit to the Cowboy Capital of the World by booking a stay at the Cypress Star in Bandera! This is a spacious, kid and pet-friendly Hill Country vacation home with plush sleeping accommodations for up to a dozen people. It's nestled in a peaceful neighborhood setting that has a private, out-in-the-country feel to it, yet it's only a few blocks away from downtown Bandera, and attractions like the 11th Street Cowboy Bar and the splashing fun of the Medina River!

Cypress Star is a short walk to Bandera City Park, which accesses the Medina River for a modest fee. This makes it one of our most popular vacation homes, but there's so much going on right on the property, you may find it hard to drag yourself away! The fenced backyard provides safety for kids and pets. There are shaded porches out front and back, adorned with outdoor furniture. And we're just getting started!

Entertain on the back porch with a bar, beverage cooler, and Roku-equipped smart TV! There's a fire pit and pellet grill/smoker combo for cooking, and firewood is provided. Snuggle your special someone with glitter after dark with string lights over the patio and grove.Did we mention the cowboy pool? Check with us for its availability; if it's open, you've got to take a cowboy-style dip! Test your skills on the croquet field in the grove, fully decked out with equipment and beer holders! (Please return croquet items to the house when not in use.)

The roomy interior offers comfort, thanks to central air (split mini units in the bunk room), ceiling fans, and a fireplace in the back (the front fireplace is ornamental). There are two comfy seating areas, the larger of which has a Roku-equipped smart TV. The full kitchen includes all the appliances, cooking and serving ware, and utensils your crew will need, alongside a dining area and coffee bar. Added conveniences include Wifi Internet service and a washer and dryer.

Three bedrooms, along with an additional bunk room, provide great sleep space for up to a dozen people (please be aware the bunk room is only available for groups of more than six). That's one king-sized bed, two queens, and two sets of queen and twin bunk beds in all! The master bedroom and bunk room have their own smart TVs. Two spotlessly-clean full bathrooms are shared among the sleeping spaces, and have shower and tub combos for your cleanup needs. Fresh bed and bath linens are provided for everyone.

Live like ranch royalty at the Cypress Star! Contact us at Backroads Reservations to book this amazing vacation home in the heart of the Cowboy Capital of the World.
