Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 3 days stay in Tortuga Frio. The house was very comfortable for the 6 of us. The great thing about it is the location, just next to the river. We were alone in the world having fun in the water and resting under the shades in the grass. The place is wonderful, just next to a cliff. We as well loved the fact that everything was provided, paddles, kayak and tubes. Be aware that this house can ruin your plans to visit the Texas Hills as you will be tempted to stay in the water and enjoying a barbecue next to it. Actually, we only left the house to go to H.E.B. Why indeed leave this paradise to join the crowds ? Thanks for this great stay, we had so much fun and peace. Not to be forgotten !

Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Tortuga Frio! The house is so cozy & homey... and is super well equipped. The private stretch of the river is pure bliss, too! We spent hours hanging out on the dock, paddle boarding, kayaking, floating, swimming, and fishing! We would certainly recommend this great property & look forward to staying here again!

Family memory maker!

  • 5 of 5

Our intention was for our family to enjoy time together and create new memories. Tortuga Frio had everything we needed for our entire stay - we only brought outdoor fun clothing and food. We spent our days paddle boarding, tubing, swimming, catch-and-release fishing, chatting, playing cards, board games, hiking...on and on. We had one of our most memorable family vacations - thank you!!
