About the Property

4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 1 half bath sleeps 12 comfortably

Rio Contando truly is a state of the art, upscale fully furnished vacation retreat. This amazing two level house sits right on the roaring rapids of the Blanco River minutes from our downtown Wimberley square. As you pull through the gated entrance and make your way to the back of the property where the house rests, you will take pleasure in the peaceful scenery of the superbly maintained surrounding lands. As soon as you pull into the circle driveway you will know you’ve reached the correct place as the sounds of the humming river rapids bring you to a calming state of mind.

Enter through the large, solid wood front doors to an open living space with high vaulted ceilings, sparkling wood floors, and enormous windows overlooking the swimming pool and Blanco River. You will definitely enjoy fantastic views from every room in the house. As you make your way to the gourmet kitchen, you will find granite counter tops, two ovens, two refrigerators, and a separate ice maker. These amenities will all come in very handy while preparing those large scrumptious meals for the whole group! There is also two large dining tables so everyone gets to enjoy their food comfortably. As you make your way to the back half of the home, you will discover what may quickly be your favorite room of the whole house, the game room! Equipped with a flat screen TV, nice beautiful pool table with all the proper accessories needed for some competitive games with one another. This is paradise!

Rio Cantando is extremely spacious and can comfortably accommodate up to sixteen guests.

The master suite is absolutely breath taking with access to the outside covered deck and an abundance of windows providing lots of natural lighting. Rest comfortably at night on the plush king size bed or take a quick nap on the futon. This spectacular room also features two separate his & her bathrooms each having its own shower, toilet, and walk in closet for complete convenience. Downstairs you find the three more spacious bedrooms each having a walk in closet and direct access to the beautiful back yard. All of the bed furniture in the home is made from stunning hand carved wood that will blow you away.

The backyard is filled with endless opportunities of fun for everyone. From the very well maintained landscaping to the gated blue waters of swimming pool and river, it is a very surreal hill country setting. The covered patio is where the fun begins. A gas grill and a large table and chairs to dine at on the days that are just to beautiful to dine indoors. After dinner relax in the eight person elevated hot tub or a cool swim in the in ground pool. The rock fire pit has benches with enough room for everyone to gather round and roast some yummy marshmallows. Follow the stone walk way all the way down the river where you will find some eye catching rapids and a perfect natural swimming hole.

This uniquely enchanting home is filled with fine furnishings and immaculate scenery. With all the bells and whistles imaginable, this fine home will provide you with everything you are seeking for vacation that will be remembered without ever having to leave. For those who have a taste for the “finer things”, look no further, Rio Contando will meet your every need.
