Whether it’s a special occasion, like perhaps a wedding or bachelorette party, or you just want to relax with up to 11 of your closest pals, this vibrant Dripping Springs rental is ready. First, there are must-haves for large groups, like six queen beds, two full bathrooms, and a fully-stocked kitchen. And then there are some excellent bonuses, like the heated pool, a fire pit, and a covered porch. Plus, it’s all a delightful shade of pink.
Affectionately called the Pink Palace, this home fully embraces its favorite color, starting with the hue on the exterior and continuing on the walls inside all of the rooms, from the combined living spaces to the two bedrooms and two full baths. No shade of pink is left behind here, as it pops up in ways big and small, whether in the bathroom tile, sink basin, furniture, or dishware and toaster. Even the coffee maker is blush-colored.
All that color is balanced nicely with swaths of white in the kitchen cabinetry and stone counters, pale wood floors, and gunmetal gray and brass accents.
The good looks are supported by a plethora of well-arranged seating spaces inside and out; making group hangs easy and comfortable. A large kitchen island enables a cook to work on one side while everyone else sits at the breakfast bar on the other. A cheeky make-up mirror in the bedroom is an extra spot for getting ready so others can use the bathroom. Several outdoor nooks, like the covered porch, a deck, the firepit, and the patio around the pool, let everyone spread out even further.
If your group wants to hit the town, there are some seriously picturesque places to visit in Dripping Springs, like the Hamilton Pool Preserve, as well as wineries, breweries, and boutiques. But there are just as many sweet spots in the Palace, including our favorite detail of all, a quote from Elizabeth Taylor artfully arranged in – what else? – pink neon: “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”
