Although air conditioning is normal in the US, depending on where you are vacationing, you may not always find it in your vacation accommodations, which generally means the weather does not get that hot under normal circumstances. Unfortunately, weather patterns are not following the norm these days, and if you find yourself in a vacation home in an area that is experiencing a heat wave, it can take a lot of the fun out of your vacation adventures! Fortunately, we at I Love Dripping Springs understand the importance of all modern conveniences, including air conditioning, especially as our state’s summer temperatures can reach levels you may not be used to. Add in excessive humidity, and without air conditioning, you would be absolutely miserable, something you don’t have to worry about when you choose any of our Dripping Springs rentals that offer the cool breeze of this modern marvel, the air conditioner. This guide to our Dripping Springs rentals with air conditioning and everything that makes them stand out in a sea of vacation homes will give you a little something wonderful to hold on to in the months leading up to your escape to Texas!
Comfortably Cool in Our Dripping Springs Rentals with Air Conditioning
When stepping off the plane into the jetway upon arriving at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on a summer day, the heat may surprise you. The moist heaviness of the air can make it seem even hotter than it is, and you will find yourself walking faster to get into the air-conditioned coolness of the airport proper. Grabbing your baggage, picking up your rental car, (air conditioned, of course!) and heading to the first step in an adventure of many will help build up the anticipation you are feeling about this Texas trip of a lifetime! The drive will go smoothly—it is only about 40 minutes—taking travelers through some of the most beautiful landscape in the nation, and as the miles pass, you will feel your troubles drift away as you explore the sights around you. Arriving at your destination, your I Love Dripping Springs air-conditioned rental, the shape, size, and color of your dream vacation home come true may vary from property to property, but the welcoming and warmth that it shows will be a common trait in all!
Step inside spaces filled with light, let the breeze of the air conditioner dry the sweat that may be on your brow, and prepare for a comfortably cool escape in the heart of Texas Hill Country. High ceilings could make it a little more difficult to keep cool, but that is not something you will notice as you begin your explorations, perhaps stopping to familiarize yourself with the thermostat on the wall. Some travelers prefer icebox chills, others can be cold whenever temperatures drop below 80, so having access to the thermostat will ensure you stay comfortable! Follow the path of high-end flooring materials to the living room, our first stop on this tour of wonderful, and notice the ceiling fan attached to the ceiling above the plush sofa that is facing a super-sized state of the art television. One of life’s greatest luxuries is a Tuesday afternoon nap in a quiet an air-conditioned home, accompanied by the soft whirring of a ceiling fan in motion and this room may end up being your favorite room in the house.
Open concept floor plans allow you to view all the public rooms from your spot on the couch, including the dining room usually tucked away in a windowed alcove, and the fully equipped kitchen lying just beyond! You may not eat many dinners while on vacation in Dripping Springs, but this table surrounded by enough seats for every seat in your traveling party can do extra duty as a gaming station, puzzle construction zone, or just a spot to sit and sip a cup of coffee in the quiet of a house that hasn’t quite come to life for the new day as of yet! The kitchens of our air-conditioned escapes are large and cheerful spaces featuring updated appliances, stone countertops, and either center islands or breakfast bar peninsulas attached to the rest of the counters and providing additional spots to enjoy morning muffins or late-night snacks! Some may provide wine chillers to help keep your adult beverages chilled to the right temps, others may offer Subzero refrigerators that appear to be larger than your first apartment, but all kitchens will contain all the appliances, large and small, and all the accessories needed to create family meals.
The importance of being entertained cannot be overlooked, and our large backyards (some may offer acres) offer more ways to play! If it’s hot, you are probably visiting in the summer months, and our crystal-clear pools will be where your coolest adventures can take place, but there are so many more ways to play out here. Offering hiking trails, multiple seating areas, even outdoor kitchens and firepits or fireplaces, even on the hottest days of the year you will want to come outside and explore all the ways you can have fun—especially knowing that when you open that door that leads back inside, the air conditioning will immediately do its job, providing spaces where you can relax and play while remaining cool as a cucumber! As a matter of fact, many of our properties will provide game rooms furnished with pool tables, foosball tables, arcade games, even board games or video consoles, so you may decide you never have to go outside into the heat. (We will say, however, that nighttime swims are the best ways to lower your core temperature and floating in cool wonders under a dark sky lit with the twinkling of stars is one of the most luxurious and serene activities you can experience!)
After your nighttime swim, you will definitely be looking forward to slipping between the covers of our premium beds and you will want to stay cool to sleep better, something our air conditioners will definitely help with! Experts say that the ideal temperature for a perfect night’s sleep ranges between 60 to 68 degrees, with 65 degrees being absolutely the best. Dream happy dreams with the buzz of the air conditioning and the whir of the ceiling fan overhead stirring the air and wake up every morning feeling rested and ready for a new day of Texas Hill Country adventures! The bedrooms in our Dripping Springs air conditioned rentals often contain televisions for those who can’t fall asleep without channel surfing and our bathrooms provide more ways to easily fall asleep; deep soaking tubs and steam showers can help ease the transition from wide awake to happily asleep.
