    Unique property, but a mixed bag......

    Rented this property for Memorial Day weekend to be within easy drive or Pedernales State Park, Balcones Wildlife Refuge and the local wineries in the area. As the review title states....this experience was a mixed bag. I can't say there was good and bad, rather there was good and somewhat frustrating......but not bad. The Good: Property is definitely unique. Very clever setup and we didn't feel cramped being just the two of us and two small dogs Appliances are new and the hotplate and toaster oven were adequate for meal preparation. Good utensils and there was some leftover spices if needed. Towels, bath soap, shampoo and conditioner provided (no washcloths or dish towels). Never had any issue with the Netflix. The Frustrating: As I mentioned, we had two small (6lb and 20lb) dogs with us. Immediately upon arrival, we noticed the lawn area around the container completely overgrown. This made it difficult for the dogs to do their business. Yard remained this way the entire weekend, even though Matt did mow the yard around his house. Also, pet owners need to be aware that there is a dog roaming free on the property. Buddy seems like a sweet, gentle dog, but our dogs don't socialize with other dogs so we were always having to keep a look out for Buddy. Also, there are 3 goats on the property. We couldn't let the dogs out until we cleared the area of the goats. Plus, the goats like to leave their droppings on the patio which we ended up clearing twice a day. The path from the truck to the door had 3 piles of goat droppings we had to walk through at check-in. Wanted to grill hamburgers one night, but the grill is a rusty mess. Ended up frying the patties inside. Finally....if you rent this property be aware that there is NO external lock on the container Anyone on the property (there's a second rental property) could enter while you are not there. We took everything of value with us daily. The slider DOES lock from the inside. Overall.....we did enjoy the stay but it could have been better. I also feel we didn't receive adequate value at this price point.

    Very cool experience

    The ranch was very nice, we loved the goats! Owners did a great job with the tiny house, the bed upstairs was great. The place wasn’t ready on time and owner was abrupt at first but warmed up and made a fire for us.
