About the Property
Sleeps 6; 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths:
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.

- Rio Casita gets its water from a well. From time to time there is an odor. It is not always present. A new water filtration system was installed in August of 2015 to try to eliminate the odor. It seems to be working. We want you to know that the water is safe. If you think this will bother you, please do not rent Rio Casita. As I said we have taken steps to eliminate this, but I will not guarantee that there will be no odor. 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

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, TX, USA:
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.

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.
