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.

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 You are welcome to visit the garden adjacent to the house, and walk down to the pond via the marked path. Please be careful when walking - this is a Texas ranch and there are many wild natural animal inhabitants. The path is uneven. Walk at your own risk! Please don't wander off the path or into other enclosed areas! Interaction with Guests The owner is available via phone throughout your stay! The Neighborhood Karakia is a few minutes away from Burnet Ranches, and a ten minute drive from Wimberley town center. We are close to delightful wedding venues including Red Corral Ranch, Lotus Ranch and Montesino Farms. In Wimberley, we suggest the Leaning Pear for dining. Sip cafe has great coffee, Wimberley Pie Company has many delectable sweets, and Cyprus Creek Cafe is great for a drink in the evenings. Other Things to Note: Please use water responsibly! The house is sustainably constructed and made to be off the grid - with a water collection system.More

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,...More

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...More
