Three Rivers house description

Voted 'Best Vacation Home Rental in Kaweah Country - 2014', the River Villa is a three bedroom, two bathroom A-Frame house with a huge upstairs loft on 14.5 acres straddling both sides of the main fork of the Kaweah River. The River Villa is riverfront and has incredible Kaweah River whitewater views as well as stunning mountain views of the High Sierra including Moro Rock, Alta Peak and Eagle's Nest. The River Villa is located approximately one mile from from the main entrance to Sequoia National Park and less than 1/4 mile from Mineral King Road which leads into the Mineral King entrance to Sequoia National Park (10 miles).

The River Villa comfortably sleeps 15 people and has numerous amenities including a fully stocked kitchen, a dining room and a living room with 55 inch HD LCD TV with Dish Network, Sirius Music channels and wireless high speed internet. Outside are a covered patio, two picnic tables for dining riverside, various chairs for relaxing, and horseshoes. The River Villa overlooks an island for much of the year (depending on the water level) and the Kaweah River whitewater rapid known as Bumper. You can swim, fish, hike and explore along our vast stretch of the Kaweah River. Due to its seclusion and location, the stargazing at night is nothing short of spectacular.

As of 2012, the River Villa has a new Maytag Bravos washer and dryer set, a new Kenmore ultra quiet dishwasher, high speed wifi and telephone with free local and long distance calling within the United States. Each bedroom has a queen bed, overhead ceiling fan and large exterior window (slider with screen). The loft has numerous twin beds and one full (double) bed with three overhead fans.

The River Villa was built as an A-Frame vacation home in 1971 and has never been occupied as other than a vacation home.

The River Villa is an A Frame with a block wall exterior and much woodwork in the living room and an exterior covered patio. The house is a bit Retro but has new carpeting in the downstairs bedrooms, hallway, living and dining room areas. The bathrooms and kitchen also have new tile and laminate wood flooring. The River Villa is not luxurious but is meant to be a relaxing and comfortable home on the river.

The River Villa is accessed via a private paved and gated drive off of Sierra Drive and the home sits away from the road and is private and secluded with no highway or road noise (just the sound of the Kaweah River).

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2011

                              About the owner: My family originally moved to Three Rivers in 1972. I left to go to school and work in San Diego and returned in 2005 with my soon-to-be-wife Stacie. We now have 2 kids (Anna and Maverick) growing up in Three Rivers and the same Sierra Nevada mountains I came to know and love as a kid. I own and manage two hotel properties in Three Rivers, practice law part time, serve as a volunteer Tulare County firefighter/EMT and run trail races and triathlons when not spending time with family or working. We were fortunate to be able to purchase the River Villa - it is a comfortable house with a fantastic 14 acres right on the bend of the Kaweah River. We hope you love it as much as we do.

                              Why the Owner Chose Three Rivers:
                              Location! Location! Location! Few river properties are riverfront with large tracts of land and views of the surrounding peaks. This property has it all and is also only one mile from the Sequoia Park entrance. It sits away from the highway on a private, gated driveway so it is peaceful, quiet and safe.
