"Sheila" is a 1955 Cree Travel Trailer with River access in the heart of Wimberley. She is 20ft long & in original & great shape for her age. We spent the last year restoring her. If you love vintage & camping - you will fall in love with Sheila.
1/4 mile from market days and 1/2 mile from the "square"!! Perfect for two people, "Sheila" is a restored 20-ft long 1955 Vintage Cree Travel Trailer. Your hosts have spent the last year restoring her to ultimate Retro-coolness after rescuing her from total neglect. Sheila all original except for utility system updates. She is "Sin on Wheels" and has a Copper Tone appliance kitchen with dinette, a full / RV size bed with Memory Foam Mattress, a full bathroom with shower, a huge closet, original vintage fixtures, lots of storage, record player and vinyl LPs and a small patio with outdoor table and firepit! French press and pod coffee machines, and yes cold AC and space heating.
***Note that bed is slightly more narrow than a double bed and the mattress is on the SOFT side.
The camper is close to the main house but positioned so that there is privacy, river access, and natural wildlife and an organic garden that makes it a unique experience. The hosts have handpicked new old stock vintage / art deco decor, entertainment and furnishings such as vintage board games, and portable vinyl record player. There is limited WiFi outdoors - we have designed your visit to center around the fire-pit, watching deer roam and playing records instead! If you have to have reliable internet while camping, Sheila may not be the gal for you. If you don't know how to operate a record player, let us know so we can show you and prevent operational damage. The bed is "antique RV" full size and very cozy for two people, so if you need something closer to a queen, it may not work for you. Most guests love the softer memory foam gel mattress but it's definitely not firm.
This trailer was manufactured by a company that only operated in the 50s and 60s in Marcellus, Michigan. Cree Trailers are very rare and even more rare in this condition - the parts are extremely hard to find. Please ask questions before operating things like window cranks, or things that might break easily.
There is also a fire pit / BBQ Grill and picnic area. We have private River access 1/4-mile away and we are centrally located in town but the Loft backs up to views of the Hill Country. The camper is perfect for a couple. Our convenient yet secluded location allows you to be connected and disconnected all at the same time. We also have a another space on our property in case your family wishes to book both at once!
We feed our native deer and turkeys and therefore, wildlife roam our property, they wait to be fed near our door like pets! We will give you deer corn / feed upon request.
Sheila has access to an organic garden so please let us know if you will be cooking and we can tell you what may be available (greens, herbs veggies), depending on the season. Our organic garden is pesticide free and offers heirloom varieties.
So, if you like eccentric, unique places to stay in one of the most popular Texas destinations, this place is for you!
Sheila is located on our 1-3/4 acre property at/very near the center of Wimberley. Although it is located close to the main residence, the trailer is positioned so that it faces a natural setting and has plenty of privacy. There is parking on-site in a "guest parking" designated space and a rock lined pathway leading to Sheila. Enjoy our private and gorgeous Blanco River access just walking distance away (1/4-mile), Farm-to-Table restaurants, a brand new HEB and unique shopping 1/2- to 1-mile away. Our little town is hopping all year round! Legendary Swimming Holes, Jacob's Well, Blue Hole, and Little Arkansas are located in Wimberley. Wimberley voted No. 2 of top ten Best swimming holes in Texas in 2013! Christmas in Wimberley is also a very popular time of year with the Trail of Lights, Xmas Market Day, and unique shopping and events. Gruene Hall is a 30 minute drive, Austin is a 40 minute drive, Fredericksburg is an hour drive! But there is so much to do here, you will likely not be road-tripping!
Interakcija s gostima

If we can't be there at check-in, easy instructions will be provided. If there is anything that you want and don't have, or can't find, or you need help with directions or fun / cool things to do, please ask!! We want you to leave Happy and come back and see us! Communication is so important and we want to hear from you if we can help make your stay more comfortable!
Howdy! The following items are indirectly related to our house rules, but should be elaborated on.
1. For some reason, the biggest issues that we run into on a regular basis are guests showing up with extra people, pets and vehicles. Please read our house rules on these items. No pets, no extra people, no guests or friends that are not on the reservation, no additional vehicles. There are NO exceptions to our pet policy - we love animals but the cleaning and dander is too much for our future allergic guests.
2. If you check in with more people than are on the reservation, or invite others to our property that are not on the reservation, our on-site local personnel will let us know and we will ask you to leave with no refund.
3. Our cancellation policy is STRICT. Please understand that if you decide that you cannot stay for some reason that relates to a personal preference, or family / work obligation that has nothing to do with our listing, we do NOT refund. (Examples, "I'm allergic to cedar and can't stay because I'm sick!"; "My girlfriend and I got into a fight"; "The swimming holes were all booked up and we want to leave"; "it rained the whole time!". We are very sympathetic to such, but have to maintain the same policy for all guests, not just some. Last minute cancellations or trips cut short are not refundable. We always honor our guests' request to reschedule, provided that enough advance notice is given. See Airbnb's rules on rescheduling as well.
4. Most often, our guests are extremely respectful and clean. Airbnb is founded on a community of trust and great people who host and travel! However, sometimes there are those who take advantage of really great thing. Any damage or need for us to do excessive cleaning will result in claim of partial or full deposit. Please use our space and property with love and leave it Tidy and observe check out instructions. Thank you so much!!!
***Please do not use propane appliances in trailer without getting the proper "tour" from the hosts. This trailer has many features that are different from modern campers. Replacement parts are extremely hard to find. So PLEASE get the demo from us prior to cooking, turning window cranks and operating certain trailer features. We will always be available in case there are still questions about the trailer's unique but awesome features.
*** We prefer day time check in but we know there are exceptions when there are unavoidable delays in travel. Since we live in a small town, lighting is limited and it can be hard to maneuver at night if you have never been here. After all, We live in a secluded area with nature all around and gorgeous stars so that makes up for it! But be mindful upon check in.
Our pups bark but they are sweet...call them by name and throw them a tennis ball - again if you show up at night, their barking may be startling if you can't see them.
*** The furnishings are one of a kind and vintage. PLEASE help us keep our groovy space groovy. Be mindful of antique items, particularly our vinyl record collection and portable LP player and treat them with care.
*** Smaller trailers are designed to have a maximum electrical load of 30 amps. there are certain appliances that draw for amps...hairdryers for example, and can trip the breaker. A cell phone charger uses very little amperage and shouldn't be a big deal. The appliances included in the trailer appropriate for the electrical system. If the breaker trips or you notice a section of the trailer lights/plugs not working, please let us know immediately and we will reset the breaker. Using the ceiling AC and heater at the same time would also trip the breaker.
*** The water heater can provide a +/-7 minute hot shower. Allow 20- to 30-minutes between showers in order for the water heater to work properly.
***The bed is sized antique full, which can be a challenge for our guests that need more room. The bed is also memory foam which can be on the soft side.
***Remember that the wifi is really limited on site and please don't rely on it inside the trailer.
Here are our house rules. We put lots of love and attention into making this space to share with you. Thank you for treating our unique vintage trailer with the same care and respect you would expect from visitors in your own home.
****Any damage or losses caused by anyone in your party to our furnishings, records, etc, will be recouped in the deposit held by Airbnb.
***Please be very clear on the number of people in your reservation. This property is only set up for a maximum of 2 guests. If you do not tell us and show up with more people in your party or pets, they will not be allowed. We only have one parking space for your stay, so please only arrive with one vehicle.
*We are so sorry, but due to the size of the space, its one of-a-kind vintage furnishings and other guests who have allergies, we do not allow pets. Thanks for understanding that there are no exceptions. Please do not let our kitty in the camper ;-)
*Please do not use propane appliances in trailer without getting the proper "tour" from the hosts. This trailer has many features that are different from modern campers.
*The trailer is located under the trees set off from the main house so you will have to use a trail to enter or leave your living quarters from your vehicle. A porch light and some solar / Christmas lighting is used to illuminate the camper and trail at after dark, but it is your responsibility to leave lights on if you will be away from the camper at night. Be careful when climbing up or down the trailer step. **This is particularly important if there is morning dew or rain water on the step** By accepting this reservation, you acknowledge that We are not responsible for accidents / injury on the property or river access associated with the property.

*Smoking is only permitted outside. Please dispose of cigarette butts.
* Be sweet to our welcoming commitee. We have two sweet female dogs, Sally & Rosey, who are generally outside, they will greet you. Sally is the lab and Rosey is the funny looking one. Sometimes, especially if you arrive late, our pups will bark. Don't be alarmed, they are very friendly and are doing their job by letting us know there is someone on property.
* Love our River. No glass containers at the river and guests must conduct themselves appropriately while using River access. **Swim at Your Own Risk** Other neighborhood families use the access and no littering or abuse of river access. We love our beautiful and quiet environment and can't wait to share it with you!
*We love our environment! We have provided luxury/organic shampoo, conditioner and body wash in large pump bottles for our guests in order to reduce waste and consumption. Please use and leave for the next guests. We have provided the number of towels based on the reuse at least once. Please hang towels after use.
*Fires in the pit are only permitted in non-burn ban times of the year. Use the starter logs provided. Firewood is not provided and can be purchased at a local grocery store.
*We have provided lots of supplies for your kitchen! Check it out before you head to the grocery store. Reusable Grocery Store bags are under the sink. If you forget something, let us know and we might have what you need in the trailer or in the main house. :-)
*Please wash any dishes prior to your leaving. Separate cardboard, paper, and bottles to be recycled. Tie up trash and place in trash can in the driveway. Place recycling in the designated receptacle in the main driveway.
*Sheila has a black water tank so please reduce waste as much as possible. PLEASE BE GENTLE, the owners have to manually empty these systems and properly dispose off site. Do not flush any feminine products or non-degradable items down the toilet. In fact, please dispose of all paper in the trash can. It really helps keep our system clean!
