Guestbook comments from the owner

"This weekend has been amazing. Good people. Good food. Good laughs. Being under the same roof with such strong people is inspiring. There is so much soul in this cabin. And I almost didn't come! This is the perfect place to get your mind right again. A huge sigh of relief!"

Nice Place!!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time. The owner was on the property daily,was pleasant and eager to help resolve any issues 24/7. It wasn't perfect but it was fun and i think it was a great value.

The wi-fi almost never worked in the catfish cabin. Many of our group said they would go back. I recommend this property

Owner's Response: We thank this wonderful family for staying in our Wunder-Cove properties and for their positive review of their experience with us. As for the internet service issues they experienced while staying in our Catfish Haus, we have changed the service provider since they stayed with us.

Had a great weekend with family. The adults enjoyed floating the river. The smaller children enjoyed being able to play in the water off the dock, since it was in a cove and protected.

Tom was wonderful. He worked with us to make sure we had a great time. The houses were clean and stocked with everything we need.

Can't wait to go back again.

We had several families that wanted someplace to go and float the river. We rented 3 houses so everyone had plenty of room to spread out and have a little privacy. The common areas were where we spent most of our time. We had a great time cooking out and watching the children play in the river.

Tom was a great help, we had some issues when we planned to go and he worked with us to make sure we were able to have a nice time. The houses are as described, great for family or friends who want to get away together and don't mind sharing space. The houses were really clean and had everything you would need.

We look forward to going back again next year.

What a view!!

  • 5 of 5

We shared Bass Haus with another family. This house is the perfect little river cottage.. The property is located near everything (driving distance) but not in the middle of all the craziness on the comal/guadelupe. It is a quiet area and includes everything you need for the perfect family getaway. The kiddos enjoyed jumping off the boat dock into the river area located on the property and roasting smores and hot dogs on the camp fire. What a great time.. we will be back! It would espcially awesome if you wanted to do a family reunion or travel with multiple families. Tom was super friendly and the hospitality was great! Flawless!

Ok not great

  • 3 of 5

Let me first say that we enjoyed our time at Bass house-however, it could have been much better. If you are looking for a quiet time this is not the place especially if you do not rent all three houses. They are very close together and we were lucky to have them to ourselves for 4 days then it went bad! A large group of people set to party showed up and our tranquility was rudely ended. The setting could be improved greatly with a few sections of strategically placed privacy fence and elimination of the hot tub (which stays pretty dirty). Also the houses are in desperate need of some TLC-and a VERY deep cleaning. I spent the first day cleaning the kitchen and bathroom!! I will say that Tom the owner tried to keep a cap on the party bunch but it was not very relaxing as you look right at them! Our only saving was we were in the end house and could ignore them-however the house next to us9not owned by this owner) has a security light that shines in the bedroom windows and their airconditioner is in need of repair and screams when on-a real problem I am sure in the summer. On the note of security lights some time spent making sure lights from one house does not shine on other houses quiet area would also be nice! So yes it would be great for a large gathering-no if you are looking for a quiet experience. Also keep in mind this sits on a side hill with MANY steps up and down to the bbq and seating area-not good for anyone with mobility issues.

Owner's Response: Guadalupe River Houses strives to offer unique, clean, comfortable, safe & enjoyable properties to our guests. We opened our first vacation rental in the summer of 2004 and since then we have been blessed with the additon of other properties and many satisified guests. It is our policy to communicate with our guests from their initial contact with us by either the internet or phone until they check-out. We make an effort to provide a personal touch for our guests in both our service and the quality of the properties we offer. The moment a guest checks into one of our properties we make shure that they have our contact information and encourage them to contact us with any issues or concerns 24 / 7. We walk the grounds of each property every day to make shure everything is in order. If we see a guest we make it a point to ask them how they are doing and if there is anything we can do for them. If we are aware of anything that needs correcting we do it. In the case of the above review the guest stayed with us for 8 nights and the only issues that we were made aware of were the following. 1. The party noise, but only the next morning after the fact. We are on call 24/7 but we can not respond if we do not kow about an issue. 2. Hot-tub: We clean all of our spas daily or as needed. It is springtime in Texas and our Spa patio is located under a grove of ancient elms that are very messy when they are blooming. We drained the tub 2 times during this time period . I was personally on the property for most ot the days of this stay and had several conversations with these guests, but was never notified by them of any of the other issues mentioned in the above review. We apologize to these guests for their inconvience and want them to know that we appreciate their business and that we have corrected all of the issues mentioned in their review. GRH mgt.
