Overview
Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Wimberley, Texas
Welcome to Karakia - a beautiful farm house on 100 acres of wildlife sanctuary land. Surrounded by gardens and orchards, the spacious house is a unique luxury treasure - with 14ft front doors, stain glass windows, and a wide wrap-around porch.

The Space

Karakia is a beautiful sanctuary in the Hill Country.

Formerly a certified organic farm and now a wildlife reserve, the house was originally designed to use only cutting edge technology to be off the grid - with solar cells and a water collection.

The space is suitable for chemically sensitive people! Only natural cleaners are used in this space.

Guest Access

Large Farm House was a new location for us. However, what a splendid surprise to enter the huge home that so welcoming! The artwork, high ceilings and the unique woodwork was such a treat.

I thought this stay needed a review to give vacationers a full picture of what to expect. Maybe it is because it is Halloween season, but my wife was seriously spooked staying at this farm house. This is a charming house with character in spades, but as advertised off the grid a bit. You take a winding dirt road to...

Thank you for your review! Yes, Karakía is very unique in that it is a farmhouse with all the wonderful gifts nature offers! While remote, but safe, the windows can be left open to hear the soft breezes outside. An occasional acorn hitting the rooftop is a gentle reminder that Fall is upon us! :) We are so happy you...

We arrived Friday afternoon and the air conditioners and fans were already running, along with a welcome letter with detailed instructions for the house. Every question we had while there we texted to Bethany and received a reply within minutes. Even though the house is solar powered, we had more...
