Welcome to Casa Rio Vista Hill Country Ranch! Here is your chance to vacation in this truly spectacular Hill Country vacation property, located on a stunning 8 acre mini-ranch, overlooking the Pedernales River and its Canyon. This property is so unique with it's quiet and beautiful country location, the moment you drive up, you feel relaxed and totally at peace.

Casa Rio Vista is a First Class Home on this mini ranch and is conveniently located off Hwy 71 between just 15 minutes from Hi way 620 and the Hill Country Galleria Mall area and 40 minutes from the Austin airport. Yet we are nestled peacefully in a private community of estate and ranch homes surrounded by mother nature at its best. Casa Rio Vista has a distinct advantage over other homes, it's incredible view of the Pedernales River with the Texas Hill Country all around you. Casa Rio Vista now offers a total of 7 bedrooms with 3 bedrooms in the main house with a huge Master Bedroom with King Bed, private bath, shower, and large size tub. Our beautiful 2nd bedroom with Queen size bed, shares a full bath, shower and tub with the 3rd bedroom which offers twin sleigh beds and gaming systems for kids on a Flat Screen TV. To top it off the bedrooms have Plasma TV's, and DVD players! The home has a large living and dining room area with rock fireplace that opens to a large covered patio area and overlooks the swimming pool/ dry sauna area.

You will just love the back patio area as its the best place to sit and relax while watching the deer and other wild life that pass by. The home also has a well equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, Jenn Air stove, convection oven and microwave plus all of the other small appliances that you would need to make a simple or even gourmet meal! We also have available a large media room complete with a 55 inch plasma TV, stereo / video game systems and a 2nd stone fireplace. And for larger groups the home also has TWO separate guests houses one of which is a large guest house with 3 nice size bedrooms, one with a king bed and a hide a sofa bed and the other bedroom with King bed and the 3rd bedroom with two twin beds a nice size kitchen and dining area and a small living room area's with TV's and stereo systems. A smaller but very nice 7th bedroom for the property is in the 2nd guest house just off the garage which has a queen size bed and LCD TV and nice patio over looking the Hill Country and all of the beds in the main house and both guest homes have pillow top mattress which makes sleeping sooooo nice!

The house was professionally decorated and furnished in a manner you would expect from a first class home. The entire home is done in a combination of tile and berber carpeting with lots of windows which gives you a very open feeling or you can close it off. The main house has a large family room of all glass doors across the back, an elevated dining area, that seats 8 to 10, a separate bar area and a beautiful new kitchen with dining area in the kitchen that seats eight. Located out the glass doors in the living / family room is a beautiful patio area with plenty of table and chair and perfect for dining or relaxing. Off the kitchen is the laundry room that is yours to use at no extra charge. The house has a water purification system and other amenities include its own private lighted tennis court...I mean what other home do you find with a private tennis court! PLUS...a private play area for the kids and its own private boat dock (river water level does vary from time to time .) with boating just behind the home via the steps that leads down to the river or just down river if the water level is low. If you bring your boat a public boat ramp is just 15 min away in Pace Bend State Park! This Home is located in a very quite and natural setting and is the best spot for riding bikes, walking, bird watching and seeing lots of other wild-life in its natural setting. What else would you need to make this the best vacation EVER!

The entire property perfect for family retreats, church retreats, tennis retreats with the gals, guys or couples and Casa Rio Vista Hill Country Ranch makes a prefect spot for large family gatherings.

OCCUPANCY POLICY. Because of the quality of our home we can not rent for parties or to minors and sorry we can not do weddings on the property or anything with lots of extra people on the property. We work very hard to maintain a quiet family atmosphere for the enjoyment of our guests and neighbors. Any use of the home for purposes other than family vacations must be addressed at the time of the reservation. This website indicates the maximum number of guests allowed in our home. If this number is exceeded you may be asked to leave without a refund.

I love this comment from a prior guest review.

xxx....This is not a perfect house but being an imperfect family we found it delightful and so relaxing that minor issues were rapidly overlooked...xxx

And such is life! No this home is not the Ritz perfect but we do try every day to make it as nice or perfect as possible and most see that in the home. For those that know about Hill Country vacation homes and pricing you will find this home to be very competitively valued for the size of home and property and the amenities offered.

One final thing. We have taken a lot of pride, effort and money to furnish these homes in a top notch, first class manner that you don't find in most rental homes. We offer Casa Rio Vista to guests who like and appreciate nice things as we do...and more important we only will to rent this home to people who know how and will take care of nice things and will respect the property. SOOOOO...., wild party animals need not reply! lol We work on a first come first serve basis so call or email me today to check your date request. You will be glad you did and we look forward to seeing you at Casa Rio Vista!

You can now launch a boat just 15 min away at Pace Bend Park or at Briarcliff marina. and thier is plenty of water in Lake Travis for lots of fun. You can also rent boats and jet ski's close by. We only rent this home and property to one group or family at a time so everything is private to just you. We look forward to seeing you in the Hill Country at Casa Rio Vista!

Great for a staycation

  • 4 of 5

The property was the right size for our family. It was spacious and was fully furnished with all that we needed. There was even ice in the 3 freezers. The property manager was very attentive and responded to all of our concerns within 15 minutes. The pool was cleaned every day and was used a lot. The only disappointment was that the river was very low. I highly recommend this to my friends and we will definitely be back.

Fun Family Vacation in Austin

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! There was plenty of room for 17 of us. The kitchen was large enough for several of us to use at the same time and others to sit at the table and visit. The pool was refreshing and very clean. There is a 'caretaker' that lives on the edge of the property and was quick to respond with any questions or needs we may have had. While the property does have a dock...the Pedernales river was completely dry during our stay in July 2018. The home was large with a lot of towels, sheets and kitchen equipment....but the house could use a little updating. Overall, we had a great visit and I would recommend this property to my friends.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place was better than we could have hoped for! Tons of living space, comfortable sleeping space and just gorgeous views. We had the BEST time! We are already trying to plan a time to come back and stay again. Also, Wilbert who is on property to assist was THE BEST. So nice and helpful and available to help if we needed it. He definitely made our stay stress free!

Beautiful hill country river house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property nestled in a wooded river front area. The spacious house was perfect for our family of 16 (10 adults and 6 little boys)! The kids especially enjoyed the playground and they stayed in the pool all day long! We will be back. Mark, the owner, was friendly and helpful, too! If you're looking for a secluded property for a large family, with all the amenities, this rental is for you!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

This property on the Pedernales River is absolutely awesome! It has plenty of beds for your group and the views of the river and hill country are breath taking. Its about a 20-30 minute drive from Austin so everything from groceries to whatever else you need is a simple drive away. The basketball/tennis court is great, especially with the lights for night time hoops. Wilburt, the grounds keeper was so friendly, and if we needed anything he was gladly helping out. Very friendly guy. I would recommend this place. Overall great stay. Communication between Mark, Wilburt and I was constantly good. Thanks Again!

Beautiful property with amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautiful but I believe it needs some upgrades. The pool wasn’t clean when we arrived and the motor wasn’t working right. The lady from the pool company took care of it but we could only enjoyed it half of our stay. The playground is damaged and I believe the outdoor tables and chairs need some cleaning prior guests arrival. Mark and Will were very accommodating. Overall it was a great experience!
