The Salt Lick Retreat ~ A Quiet Texas Oasis ~ 3BR / 2.5BA; Alarm; Pool; Jacuzzi

Located in: Spring
A Quiet Texas Oasis!

Sleeps 1-8. Weekly and monthly discounts are available. Private rental of the retreat ~ 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, private heated salt water pool and jacuzzi, and so much more!

We look forward to hosting your stay. :-)

The Salt Lick Retreat is located in Spring, Texas - west of I-45 and east of 249 / Tomball Parkway - in a quiet, safe and established neighborhood close enough to major roads to make commutes easy, without seeming to be near major roads (things sought after, and not often found, in and near Houston!).

The retreat is on high ground, does not flood, and has withstood decades of storms just fine! Located 30 minutes north of downtown Houston, we are close to The Woodlands (27 minutes), ExxonMobil Campus (19 minutes), Hewlett Packard (10 minutes), parks, playgrounds, golf courses, movie theaters, walking and biking trails, horseback riding, gyms, restaurants, grocery stores (Whole Foods, HEB, Kroger, Randalls, and Sprouts), ice cream and yogurt temptations, water parks, shopping, and more. Galveston Beach is a quick 1.5 hour drive away (a fun day trip).

Our lush and wonderfully private yard features a salt water swimming pool with jacuzzi, both of which are open year-round. Pool temperature may be kept at 70-80 degrees during 70 degree or colder weather. The jacuzzi may be used at any temperature, from pool temperature to 104 degrees. The jacuzzi heats up quickly and will go from 70 degrees to 104 degrees in about 15 minutes. It is really nice at pool temperature on hot days, when you may not want the water to be hot!

The yard also features an outdoor gazebo, lounge chairs and seating, an 8'x14' rectangular trampoline with safety netting, fire pit, large dual bbq (separate sides for charcoal and gas) with additional side gas burner, futon swing, cornhole game, hockey / soccer net, pool and play items, and poolside basketball net.

Monarch and other butterflies often emerge from cocoons on butterfly plants (or even on the furniture!). Hawks, owls, doves, cardinals and other birds frequent the yard and airspace. White geckos are fun to spot on the garage door at night, and you may get lucky enough to spot a bat at night or even a frog in the back yard (including the endangered Houston Toad!).

The retreat is lovingly decorated with formal and informal Texas antiques and other furnishings, and is offered to guests who are accustomed to caring for a nicely maintained home. Please note that this is a privately owned home that is made available for rental when the owner is staying at her secondary home (nearby, but which is closer to clients and aging family).

Guests enjoy:
* Self check-in (keypad)
* Living room TV with Dish Network, DVD/VHS, Wii
* Wireless Internet (AT&T Fiber 100)
* Large DVD and VHS video collection

Please be sure to read the Rental Agreement before making a reservation.

Reading the listing description and Rental Agreement, as well as looking through the pictures, will help you choose a home that will meet your needs. :-)

The property frequently receives competing rental requests, from various online rental sites, so you may want to inquire and confirm quickly, to ensure that you get the reservation!

Please keep in mind that Houston is hit by storms each year. It is consistently being developed and repaired. The house is in a beautiful, quiet area. Any storms, construction or repairs near the house will not be a basis for discount or cancellation, nor will our periodic power outages (or if the pool heater / jacuzzi are not working).

For longer stays, the house interior may be checked weekly for plant watering, and light repairs and maintenance. Any issues can result in immediate payment for damages, and / or an additional security deposit, and / or termination of rental for no refund.

Please see the Calendar for available rental dates.

* * * * * * * * *


50% of invoice with 30 or more days' notice.
100% if less than 30 days' notice.

This custom cancellation policy overrides the VRBO "No Refund" setting (their "multiple choice" system does not allow for my actual, more generous, cancellation policy). :-)

A cancellation of any kind will incur deduction of all fees we paid to accept your reservation.

The cleaning and other fees will not be refunded if a cancellation is not made well in advance.
