HomeExchanges in Texas

1800s homestead in the hill country of Texas

"This home is amazing! Tastefully decorated to the very last detail, the view from the dining table is serene. We so enjoyed the ‘homestead’, and it’s history, that we never even made it to the saloon across the street, which I’m sure was just as special. There was also a playground children would love! Autumn was super easy to communicate with! We would very highly recommend this very special home on the ranch, we loved staying here!" —Katherine

Lakefront Texas getaway cabin near San Antonio

"Bob and Barbara's home was absolutely amazing! I have lived in Texas for 20 years and this was by far my best get-a-way from the chaos of Austin. It was a piece of paradise with such amazing views, so many lovely decks, porches and sitting spots. These are all surrounded by gorgeous gardens with fresh greens, herbs, and flowers that attract many species of birds. The outside spaces have a lush Mediterranean feel. They also have a wonderfully furnished, comfortable and spacious home with views from almost every room." —Mary

Dog-friendly Texas getaway cabin close to Austin

"What a beautiful, warm, spacious home! Sally & Wally's pool, yard and living room made for a perfect retreat, we enjoyed playing pool on their gorgeous pool table, and their location was a great launching point for seeing the Hill Country and Austin. Their house provided ideal comfort and privacy for 2 couples, each with our own bath. And their art collections from Mexico are magical!" —Deb and Tom

Spacious, historical home in Texas wine country

"We never lacked anything during our stay, and my father even commented he had never stayed in such a fully furnished home with games for the family! The pool was an unbelievable oasis in the hot Texas sun and the jacuzzi was great for the adults in the evening. We made s'mores on the outdoor fire pit and cooked most of our meals in her fully equipped kitchen (which was close to a professional commercial kitchen, in our opinion). The house was tastefully decorated with special pieces from around the world. We spent hours playing on her pool table as well as watching movies as a family in the living room." —Sergi and Susan

Secluded luxury yurt outside Bastrop, Texas

Stay in a yurt cabin, nestled into a 200-acre conservation property just outside of historic Bastrop, Texas. Your Texas getaway will be memorable in a luxury yurt with all the amenities you could ask for: private bathroom, elevated wooden deck, walk-in shower, and a hot tub. The peace and quiet of the area ensures a rejuvenating stay, and there's plenty to do in the area, with proximity to Lake Bastrop and the Colorado River.

Texas getaway cabin in the trees

"We loved staying in Kristin and Mark's beautiful home. Very clean and comfortable with many thoughtful touches such as extra fluffy towels and coffee. They also provided many local tips and suggestions for our stay. The house is very conveniently located to everything. Unfortunately we had a couple rainy days that limited our outdoor activities in Austin, but we had fun playing some of their board games as a family (I LOVE when we can get our kids off their devices)." —Angela

Mid-century modern gem in Austin suburb

"Wow! What an experience. Not every day you get to live inside the set of Mad Men! Absolutely take advantage of Shelley's hospitality if you are looking for a place in the Austin area. Cocktails by the pool are a real treat!" —Anshu & Brendan

Cliffside home with stunning views in Canyon Lake, Texas

"A beautiful home, with incredible views, amazing swimming pool, gorgeous decks, well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, tons of privacy and to top it off, close to so many fun places. We stayed 8 days and there was still so much left to do and see. Communication with Trace was easy and quick. Would highly recommend this exchange!" —Tracy
