We're in a country setting but do have neighbors on both sides. We like to be respectful of our neighbors by keeping tidy and generally quiet (but a good evening gathering or yard party are certainly a thing!). We've got a 7 yo who LOVES making new friends. Our property is 2 wooded acres you're welcome to roam, and our neighborhood is host to many interesting livestock you'll see on a nice stroll or bike ride - donkeys, emus, horses, sheep, goats, cows, giant tortoises, and more. We also have exciting wildlife like deer, foxes, coyotes, bobcats, snakes, over 30 species of wild birds, and the rare mountain lion sighting (you're blessed if you ever get to see one!) Guests are welcome to use our grill and enjoy watching sunsets from our back porch. Suggested Local Attractions: We're within minutes of distilleries, wineries, breweries, and great BBQ. River activities in Austin, San Marcos, and New Braunfels are 25 - 45 minutes away. Area lakes are 45 minutes to an hour away in all directions. Artist and weaving attractions are 30 minutes away in Wimberley. Guests are welcome to borrow our kayak, fishing poles, and bikes. There are beautiful Hill Country drives all around, and Central Texas music is strong. Also...tacos.

We're laid back, squeezed between the big city and the Hill Country Details: We're entrepreneurs/working professionals who prefer not to do so much working, and would rather travel our days away. We live on two raw Texas Hill Country acres in a quiet, tucked-away ranchette community with our young son, ancient pug, and peacocks. Nearby, visitors will find emus, ostriches, donkeys, horses, sheep, goats, longhorns, giant tortoises, chickens, and goodness knows what else. We used to homestead and teach about intensive community food production, but now we're content to just relax at home and watch the wildlife. Paige is an avid overlander (since before it had a name), and is devoted to fishing. Dale loves to relax and tinker and work on cars. And, little Lukas loves to make new friends. Down the road from our house you'll find the ever growing world of Central Texas distilleries, wineries, breweries, cideries, and, of course, Texas BBQ. Home Town: Hays, Texas, just south of Austin, is where we are when we're not on the road or at the river. Favorite Boondocking Locations: Mountains and rivers are some of our favorite places to go! And, we're starting to love visiting the coast. We also love places with interesting food culture. Skills or Expertise to Share: We're well versed in area attractions and can help you find your way and find interesting things to do when you're here. Both Dale and Paige are handy in all sorts of skills (a bit lacking in things related to troublshooting electrical issues), and we have many tools that guests are welcome to use if necessary. Woodworking, metalworking, mechanical repairs, tech and IT, map reading, route building, camping, sewing, cooking, fishing, drinking, you name it.

    Really enjoyed our few nights at Lil Bit O Country and meeting the Oliveiros! What a nice little part of the world :) and great to be afforded the conveniences of wifi, water and electric! Loved the little strolls nearby with my dog while enjoying the wildflowers and sights. And being so close to both Buda and Austin to be able to explore and 'reconnect' when needed, was great too!

    We spent five full days at Lil' Bit o' Country. We didn't have a lot of chatting time but Paige gave us several suggestions. We went to Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood. Yummy. We also went to try crawfish - okay, but not a new favorite. We wanted to cycle back roads but traffic and construction was too much for us. Instead we rode, along with a friend, around Ladybird Lake and the VeloTrail in Austin. Great, easy rides. We also enjoyed the Lady Bird Wildflower Center - very nearby and easy to get to. This place is close to a lot of places of interest.A highlight was walking down to the end of the road for fields of bluebonnets and donkeys.

    This spot is great for day trips into Austin. Nice level driveway. Fenced in and private. Beautiful trails to explore in the back and the peacocks are so cool! We spent new years eve there and lots of neighbors setting off fireworks, which we really enjoyed. Close to great food and bars. Smokin brew-b-q food truck down the road is awesome. Also, you must stop and get tamales from Mi Ranchito down the road. We didnt get a chance to meet the host, but they were very good at communicating with us. Thank you!
