Welcome to Casa Roca – “The Rock House” with the soft touch. A perfect retreat to rest and revive, a romantic honeymoon getaway or a fun filled Texas vacation, Casa Roca can fit the bill. This unusual round rock house made from locally quarried limestone, is situated in the heart of the Hill Country, the “Front Door to the West” on a fenced 5 acres shared with two other homes, including the manager's cabin, each having its own private area and view of the beautiful hill country. The ambiance of Casa Roca is a blend of east and west with an eclectic mix of Bali decor and a touch of home grown Texas details. Comfortable for 2 guests, Casa Roca has a queen bed with living room area, bathroom with shower, equipped kitchen, and a hill country view from the shade of the front porch. Amenities include WIFI, a dock station for your Ipod, DVD player with flatscreen TV, and a stocked bookcase to keep you entertained should you decide to forego the tourist exploration and just sit on the porch and breath in the country air. Also for your outdoor enjoyment you can enjoy the porch BBQ grill, and a fire pit for those starry nights. Various species of birds and local wildlife regularly populate the many feeders on the property (bring your binoculars!) with a common streak of red as the resident cardinal birds flash by. The private courtyard has a garden of native plants with a path leading to the rocky hillsides which wind through the property. The historic town of Old Ingram is a short drive up the road in addition to local art galleries and performance theaters. Nearby Johnson Creek and the Guadalupe River have a number of summer camps and the drives along the rivers make incredible scenery. You will find many nearby activities to enjoy including golf, canoeing, swimming holes and antique hunting to name a few. There are many restaurants, from gourmet to the best BBQ in Texas. Easily navigated from Interstate I10, Casa Roca would be an ideal resting place for travelers heading east or west across the USA.
