Outstanding River Property

  • 5 of 5

The two homes were perfect for our group. The owner was great and very nice.

The deck overlooking the river was fabulous as we spent most nights on it just enjoying the evenings. Would highly recommend both the property and the owner for any larger groups of 10 plus.

What a great vacation spot for our family!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this property! Our family of thirteen were very comfortable in this home. Everyone was able to spread out and the five bathrooms were great! The best part was the outdoor pavilion and covered deck. Ron and John allowed us to host a family reunion here. It is so well set up for family entertaining and fun. We used the outdoor TV to show a slideshow of family photos and videos. The expansive lawn was great for frisbee golf. We smoked meats all day on the huge smoker. The family was able to float in the river and fish right off the deck! Others just sat on the deck and watched the parade of folks floating down the Guadalupe River. We have been getting together every year for over 15 years and this reunion was one of the best! One more thing, Ron was wonderful and so helpful to us all during our stay. We couldn't have asked for a better host.

A jewel on the Guadalupe River

  • 5 of 5

The setting by the river is wonderful. The extra large deck and spacious covered pavilion that overlook the water are what make this property a can’t miss rental. Our Thanksgiving dinner was prepared in the main house and then served while sitting on the deck—a very special time. The two houses supplied more than enough room for the nine adults and one infant in our group. As noted in other reviews, the owner lives at the very front of the elongated property and was very responsive to our needs and questions. We all hope to be able to come back again.
