This antique filled home, less than a mile from Bandera's Main Street is close to the Medina River, Mansfield Park, shopping, country music, night life and some of the most scenic roads in Texas. Guests will have FULL house access (owner leaves for the duration of your stay) and loads of privacy. ONE bedroom w/queen bed ONLY is included at this price. The 2nd bedroom (with full-size bed) will be unlocked and available only when booking 3-4 guests.
Cici's Guest House is warm and welcoming! She enjoys sharing her home with those who are "passing through" the area. And though Cici is a mom and grandma, the property is not set up to be child or pet friendly - adults only. A third double-bed size mattress is available and will be placed in the common area with 5 or more guests
For this price, guests get access to the master bedroom (with queen bed), common area bathroom (you host will not be on-site during your stay so very private) plus a super large back porch/sunroom area with full-size dining table, comfortable couch, TV (with cable), and a stocked coffee bar and mini fridge! (Sorry the large main fridge is off limits - house rules).
Also, the outside backyard is a wonderful space to enjoy the hill country breezes and the warm southern sun! In the cooler months - typically October thru March, use of the outdoor hot tub is available for an extra $50 fee (with advance reservations only).
Sorry -- there are no kitchen privileges (if you don't like this rule, please book elsewhere) which should not be a problem as there are LOTS of great local places to eat, many less than a mile away...If you are interested in the 2nd bedroom (which is normally locked when guests stay here) and/or need the extra mattress in the dayroom, please advise Cici, and know it will be extra $.
There is also plenty of covered parking. You will love it here!
Your bedroom, bathroom, and back porch/sunroom area are all within the the main house. You walk through the host's formal living room and kitchen to get to the sunroom, and these areas are technically off limits to the guests from a "make yourself at home" perspective.
Guests get the whole house** BUT....your host askes that you please use the sunroom area (with TV/couch/dining table) rather than the formal living room area (which has breakable things). and know too, that the kitchen and its food - are off-limits. **The 2nd bedroom will be kept locked unless you book it with 3 or more people.
Interaction with guests
You are the sole guest when you stay, and your host, Celia, will NOT be on-site. However, Celia, is a long-time resident of Bandera, and can help with restaurant recommendations and area events. Often she stays within the neighborhood when guests are here, and is frequently happy to show you the town -- just ask!

Eclectic, small business owner, moved to Bandera when I was sixteen and love the area. I participate in marathons, am a people person, and have a fourteen year-old grandson (who doesn't live here!) that is the light of my life. I work out regularly and love to country-western dance! I can join you for conversation or give you all the privacy you would like.
