Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 (my parents plus 3 adult children & significant others) stayed at Bobby's place Friday-Sunday in early April. The house was just as pictured and met expectations for us. The kitchen was well-stocked which was a nice surprise! I expected some pots and pans but there was also a selection of spices, food storage containers, aluminum foil, paper plates (one morning we really didn't feel like doing dishes), and a baster (which I needed and had forgotten to bring from home!), among other things. The backyard is absolutely gorgeous. Friday night was nice and we got to enjoy the porch although be warned - you'll want to bring some bug spray! I don't think I got bit which is unusual for me (so maybe they weren't THAT bad), but several others in the family did get some mosquito bites. Hey, it's spring in Texas so it kind of comes with the territory! It also may have had something to do with the crazy cold front that came through overnight. As a result, the weather was unseasonably chilly on Saturday so we didn't get to swim in the river as we would have liked but it looked like it would have been a lot of fun had we gotten the opportunity to do so. There are neighbors but it was very quiet the entire time we were there so it still felt somewhat secluded. And there are no neighbors that you can see across the river so it's a great view from the porch. The cypress trees are just awesome. And it's super close to Gruene! Google maps said it's a 20 minute walk which I had planned to do, but with the cold weather we ended up driving there. It's only about a 2 min drive! We would recommend this place to others. Thanks, Bobby!

Gruene Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house with a beautiful view of the river. The house was stocked with everything we needed. Very, very clean. There was a total of 6 adults that stayed for the weekend. Each couple had their own bathroom which was a real plus. We really enjoyed sitting out on the deck with coffee in the morning and wine in the afternoon. Every evening deer wandered into the yard. If you are looking for a house for a family or friend getaway , this is it.

Our lovely November visit

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house to stay with extended family for our son’s wedding and rehearsal dinner. The house was perfect, and the views of the Guadalupe RIver were beautiful. Our grandchildren loved the large lawn and visits from deer and birds. Wonderful!

Wonderful Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

A group of women celebrating a birthday stayed at this beautiful property on the Guadalupe River. The view from the deck was incredible with deer and ducks right in your backyard. We drove the few minutes to Gruene and enjoyed the shops and restaurants. The market days was going on so we got to do even more shopping! The house was very roomy with lots of bathrooms (one of the baths is outside but it worked out great) for that many women and also very clean. We cooked at the house and had sufficient dishes to do this. Even have to say that was the most comfortable pull out couch I have ever slept on. We all agreed (and that is hard to do with 9 women) we would come back to this house.

Perfect river house for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Bobbys house for my husbands birthday with a group of friends. The house was clean, well stocked, and steps away from the river! Bobby was very helpful and made sure we were happy. We can't wait for our next trip to Bobby's river house!
