After more than 20 years of traveling around the globe and living in far-flung regions, Ann-Tyler and Brian Konradi settled in Wimberley, Texas, where they enjoy the small-town atmosphere and peaceful setting of the Texas Hill Country.
In 2019, they created The Yurtopian to provide a unique experience for guests to come relax in a private retreat with luxury vibes. They found beautiful, brightly colored Mongolian yurts during their travels and knew they would be perfect for the experience they wanted to create.
The Yurtopian reputation grew as their guests began sharing their experiences. Soon they began to receive attention from the media as well as influencers. They eventually created a similar experience in the hills near Dripping Springs. With more land and a wet-weather creek, they could add 10 yurts with the same luxury amenities in a peaceful and private setting.
The Yurtopian now has 16 yurts – each one tucked into the woods, carefully curated with vintage furnishings, and a lot of attention to the details of view corridors and maximum privacy. The original yurts are named for their daughters and other yurts are named for friends and family.
Although the Konradis are heavily involved in the daily operations, the business has grown to include a property manager, cleaning teams and groundskeepers provide the attention to detail their guests deserve.
Ann-Tyler and Brian have three grown daughters and a small, black Maltipoo named Mila who is Head of Ranch Security!
All yurts have the exact same amenities; however, the “yurt amenities” gallery may include photos from other yurts to show closeups and different angles.
