RIO VISTA ON THE GUADALUPE - a SkyRun Texas Property

Hill Country. River. Cabin.

If your idea of a Hill Country escape evokes images of a clear river, cold beverages, supper on the grill, relaxation with a view, shaded deck and yard spaces, a comfortable riverfront cabin with modern amenities, and easy access to local outdoor activities, concerts, theme parks, and dining...

... then Rio Vista on the Guadalupe just might be the perfect spot for your next getaway to the Hill Country. At Rio Vista on the Guadalupe you'll have 200 feet of pristine, shaded Guadalupe Riverfront all to yourself! Whether your river diversions lean toward swimming, fishing, kayaking, tubing, or watching the clear water roll by against the backdrop of sheer cliff, Rio Vista has it all to offer right outside the cabin door. Bring your suit, poles, kayak, and tube for a relaxing escape on the river. Don't have a kayak or tube? Pop down the road to the local river outfitters who'll get you on the Guad in style. Prefer a guided fishing experience? The best fishing guides in the Guadalupe River- Canyon Lake area are available within a short car ride. Need a little bit of civilization to keep the natives from becoming too restless? The iconic Gruene Historic District, legendary Schlitterbahn, unique shops of New Braunfels, and outdoor concert venues like Whitewater Amphitheatre are within minutes of Rio Vista.

At the cabin you'll find expansive deck spaces that span the distance from the back door right down to the water's edge. The numerous cypress and pecan trees that fill the backyard offer plentiful shade on those toasty Hill Country afternoons. There's also plenty of outdoor seating, a grill for cooking up delectable treats after a day on the river, and plenty of space for whatever size cooler you bring!

Inside you'll find an open living/dining area, a fully equipped kitchen, a spot or two for a game of cards or dominoes, and an HDTV with cable and DVD player. Each bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser, closet, and cable TV. The living area also hosts a futon if a little extra room is needed for friends, family, or kids (yes- they are a special category of family).

You must be 25 years or older to rent this property. Maximum occupancy at all times for this home is 6 guests. We manage several nearby rental properties and therefore often have staff in the area. Please come and have a good time, but be aware that behavior that is disrespectful or disruptive will result in you forfeiting the remainder of your stay.

No smoking or pets are allowed on this property.

There is a limit of 2 vehicles unless otherwise approved.

Come relax at Rio Vista on the Guadalupe!

Wonderful weekend!

  • 4 of 5

My party loved Rio Vista. The location was great -- we were glad we were out of town because we all wanted a nice, quiet weekend, plus we had a great view of the Guadalupe. However, it was easy to get to where we wanted to go (Gruene one evening, Natural Bridge Caverns one day, and Wurstfest on Saturday).

The house was clean and ready when we arrived, and it's casual, comfortable, and well-equipped. There were some small things: we had a minor issue with wi-fi (but were able to resolve it), a fire pit would have been nice, the stove seemed to take a while to warm up prior to cooking, and the kitchen could have used more kitchen towels, hot pads, and pot holders. However, everything else in the kitchen is great, there's plenty of storage in the bedrooms, the stackable washer/dryer is new, and the deck is amazing. The property is a perfect size for 4 adults (I think it's a bit too cozy for 5 or 6 unless your party has 1 or 2 kids). The staff was really responsive and helpful as well with getting us in ahead of check-in time and helping us resolve the wi-fi issue. We highly recommend it!

It was nice

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice and clean and looked like the photos. The beds were comfortable and the view of River Rd was great. The photos show a kayak or a canoe on the property to use but there were none on site and that was disappointing since the river wasn't flowing enough to float, the only high area was right behind the house. So our trip was uneventful but we were able to sit on the patio which was fine. The neighbors were nice too.

Owner's Response: We’re very glad you enjoyed the home. Rio Vista is always clean, comfortable, and has great views like you mentioned. We’re sorry that you were expecting use of a kayak, and hope that didn’t put too much of a damper on your vacation. Please note there are several river outfitters in the immediate area. Come back soon!

Girls weekend 08/11-08/14 was awesome. Very clean, adorable, gorgeous views. Good location to Canyon Lake. Danel at Little Poderosa Outfitters down the street is an excellent place to rent your equipment. Wished could have stayed longer. Definitely will go back.

The local trash pickup only comes once a week. When we got there on Friday afternoon the trash was still outside from the previous renters. Recycled cans in the bin across the street.

This was a great house in a great location on the river, deep water!

Very quite, cozy and we had the river to ourselves. I can't think of anything else we could've needed, the house is well stocked. The neighbors very friendly and informative.

Lots to do within short driving distance. Canyon lake is beautiful at the park by the dam, so is the park in the spillway side of the dam. Very cold water to swim in! And large fish to catch. Wimberly is a fun little town, we loved Jacobs Well! Gruene is also a favorite, the Gristmill and Gruene Hall made a fun night!

We didn't float the horseshoe but kayaked it instead, the float time was about 4-5 hours a little long for us.

All in all a great time for my husband and I, and the kids ranging from teenagers to nine years old.

Oh the walk across the dam at sunset is awesome!!
