Property description

Rio Casita (Little River House) is located in the middle of a beautifully wooded acre of land on the pristine Blanco River. The clear, cool, spring fed river is ideal for kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying nature. Drive the short three miles along River Road that flanks the Blanco into Wimberley, and take a shopping spree through some of the most unique shops you will see anywhere.

This is a very romantic spot with plenty of privacy. The kids will love it also. Walk down the easy sloping hill from your back porch and directly into the river. Great swimming and wading and a superior place to enjoy an ice cold adult beverage. It's all here, come and see!

After fun in the sun and river, head back to the house to enjoy all the ammenities: outdoor grill, great backporch for hanging out, gourmet kitchen - everything you need, except the food. When the sun sets the fire flys appear. It is magical to lay in the hammock and watch the swirl around you.

Rio Casita's water is furnished by a well. From time to time there is the smell of sulfur in the water. That comes from minerals in the ground water. The well is serviced monthly by a local pump and well company and the water is checked periodically to maintain its safety. Be aware that sometimes it is a little smelly, but not always.

Other Amenities

  • Rio Casita gets its water from a well. From time to time there is an odor. It is not always present. The well is maintained monthly by a local pump and water co. They change the filter, check the chemicals and make the needed adjustments. We apologize for the odor. It is not always present,. We want you to know that the water is safe. Ground water contains both sulfur and iron, among other minerals, which can seasonally vary in concentration. Water systems may also contain varying amounts and types of harmless bacteria which consume these two mineral compounds producing a rotten egg type of odor. Flushing at the faucet until the odor disappears is the immediate remedy to this problem. Most of the time the odor occurs only in the hot water. In the Wimberley area, the EPA does not consider iron oxide or hydrogen sulfide gas dissolved in ground water as a risk....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I fell in love with Wimberley. When we found Rio Casita, we just had to purchase it. We love being there and use it as a family get away. We love the quietness, the wild life and the easy pace that this place offers. We are very happy that we can share all of that with you.

Why the Owner Chose Wimberley:
We love being on the water and the Blanco is just right for us and our dogs. Our golden retriever thinks he is in Heaven when he is there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Relax, relax, relax. Lay in the hammock, pull a chair out into the middle of the river; read; walk; listen to nature or just sit on the back porch. A unique place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, if you demand a little more activity in your life, the Village of Wimberley is just 2 miles down the road.
