  • Best place to stay in the heart of Texas


    Our family stayed here over spring break during Covid. It was the perfect place to get away and enjoy the fresh air. The Metcalfe’s were the perfect host. They really made us feel like family. Our kids loved life on the farm and getting to interact with all of the animals. The house and the pool were amazing. State of the art kitchen and comfortable beds. We couldn’t have asked for more. We will definitely return.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Stephen, we take it seriously when guests let us know that we missed the mark and would like to clarify what happened with your booking: Unfortunately, the previous guests had left the door to the home open and multiple skunks found their way inside, something that has never happened before. After many futile attempts to get rid of the odor, the homeowner and their cleaning team made the heartbreaking decision to cancel this reservation. We sincerely apologize for this unprecedented issue and are happy to hear that you received your full refund. We’d love the chance to provide you with a truly 5-star travel experience, so please let us know if there’s anything we can do to help the next time that you book a vacation rental.

  • Perfect 16th birthday celebration


    For our son's 16th, we took him and his closest friends for a long weekend to this Ranch, and it was absolutely perfect. For the 16 year olds, they played football on the lawn, games in the pool, baked cookies in the expansive kitchen, did target shooting at their range on property, took walks and visited with the animals (all in 2-days!). The house and pool area was so well done, architecturally gorgeous. The pool and hot tub was perfect and inviting with a lot of comfortable seating areas. The ranch property is breath taking with many trails for long walks and breath-taking views up high. Animals were incredibly friendly and added such a calming element to your stay. Best of all, the hosts couldn't be more welcoming and accommodating. Treating us like old friends or even family. We didn't want to leave! You won't be disappointed if you book a stay here.

  • Weekend Getaway Swim & Relaxation


    This property was so amazing! Our family of four came to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of the city life to this comfortable get away in west Texas. It was great! The house and property was super clean. The owners were great. They took us for a ride on their utv around the property. Our boys had the best time! Albert and Marietta are the nicest people you will meet. Their hospitality was top notch. Our boys swam and swam. They didn't want to leave. We will be back here again next year! You can count on that.

  • Wonderful Weekend Getaway


    We had a wonderful Mother's Day getaway at the Fera Pool House! The property is gorgeous and spotlessly clean. This is definitely the most well-stocked vacation rental we have ever stayed in. We had everything we needed and then some. The owners were just fantastic. Very friendly and responded to every need. They were so kind to our kids and the kids had a wonderful time running all over the property and playing with the animals. If you are looking for a beautiful, calming spot with all the amenities, this is definitely the place. We can't wait to come back. One warning though: The GPS on an iPhone may have trouble finding the property so start watching the mailbox numbers when you turn onto the county road. If you get to the dirt road, you have gone too far.
