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!

The Cypress Star's proximity to the excitement of Bandera makes it one of our most popular vacation homes in the area, but to be honest, there's so much going on right on the property itself, you may find it hard to drag yourself away! For starters, its enormous back yard has a privacy fence, so kids and pets can romp to their heart's content. There are shaded porches both out front and in the back equipped with outdoor furniture, of course. But we're just getting started!

For entertainment, the back porch has a bar area complete with a Roku-equipped smart TV, and there's a fire pit and smoker for toasted snacks and hearty BBQ. Snuggle on the tree swing with your special someone and add some glitter to your Bandera evenings with sparkling string lights. Did we mention the cowboy pool? Check with us for its seasonal availability, and if it's open, you've got to take a dip in it, in the Cowboy Capital of the World!

All that, and we haven't stepped inside yet! The roomy interior offers year-round comfort, thanks to central air, ceiling fans, and two fireplaces. There are two comfy seating areas, the larger of which has a large couch, Roku-equipped smart TV and a beer and wine cooler. The full kitchen includes all the appliances, Keurig/drip coffee maker, cooking ware, serving ware, utensils, and glasses your crew will need, alongside a dining area and coffee bar. Added conveniences include Wifi Internet service and a laundry room with 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 may only be available for larger groups). That's one king-sized bed, two queens, and two sets of bunk beds, including a queen, full and two twin beds in all! The bunk room has its own smart TV, too. 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, as well.

Put your family and friends up 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.
