Property description

Find privacy, convenience, nature and luxury, located in Mission, TX, in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley just north of Expressway 83 and four miles from the World Birding Center at Bentsen-Rio Grande State Park and the NABA International Butterfly Park. Lots of space, inside and out, to enjoy acres of big trees, butterfly gardens and water features. Over 6000 home surrounds a huge swimming pool. Less than 2 miles from the expressway, yet feels like a rural setting. Great place for romance or family gathering.
In addition to the luxurious main house with four bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, there is a cozy additional house available for rent that sleeps six or more. It has a full kitchen and one bathroom. It can be rented separately or rented for an additional fee of $200.00 per night along with the main house.

Car: Recommended

For nature lovers, we are located less than five miles from Bentsen -RGV World Birding Center where trams run through the park or bikes can be rented. The NABA Butterfly Park is within five miles as well. Fifteen minutes away at Anzalduas Park you have river access. Canoe trips can be scheduled in advance to travel along the Rio Grande River. Pontoon boat trips are also available only fifteen minutes away. Drive 80 miles either way to spend the day on the water. Either at South Padre Island with sunny beaches or Falcon Lake and great fishing.

Within fifteen minutes you can be at the Convention Center or one of the Arenas where concerts, shows and sport activities are scheduled. If you can make it past all the tempting malls and shopping centers, in less than thirty minutes you can be at the outlet mall. Or spend the day in Mexico. Nuevo Progreso is a safe place to shop or enjoy a delicious lunch. Or stay 'home' and relax by the pool or one of the fountains and watch the birds and butterflies without having to leave your hammock or swing.
