Incredible property, Majestic setting. Magnificent Hosts
Our family enjoyed three nights at Frio Tortuga. The property was modern, relaxed, and family-friendly. The "breakfast nook" with large picture window overlooking the river was incredible. The setting was peaceful and the crystal clear waters of Turtle Creek were amazing. We especially enjoyed the kayak and paddle boards. The best part of the equation was the host. Lori was proactive and friendly. The "area things to do" packet she has collected was most helpful. Thank you for a great family vacation.
Oh my!!! You made my day!! It was an honor to have you and your family. We'd love to have you back, if ever our way again. Your kind words and the enjoyment you had at our home, is what makes my job the best! Take care and many thanks!
Fabulous family getaway!
We loved staying at Tortuga Frio and will definitely book again for future getaways. We could walk out the door and jump right in the water - no stress, no hassle. The house is equipped with floats, kayaks, paddle boards, life jackets; everything you need for fun on the creek. Our 4 year old loved feeding the fish and the turtles each day, and we loved watching the birds and deer from the porch. Even in late June, we were comfortable outside with the breeze off the creek and shady trees in the yard. The house is clean and comfortable, the kitchen is well-appointed, and all of our technology needs (wif-fi and flatscreen tvs) were met 100%. Lori was a wonderful hostess, and made sure we had everything we need.
Absolutely perfect !
The privacy and amenities were above and beyond what we expected. It really couldn't be any better. The river was cool and clear, a stone's throw from the house. The house was impeccably clean, spacious, modern and comfortably furnished. Many personal touches by the owner; a welcoming bottle of wine with note, 4 cushioned porch rockers overlooking the river, 2 well stocked bird feeders by the porch and lots of river 'toys' such as a paddle board, tubes, kayaks, noodles, etc. We especially enjoyed eating outside at the covered picnic table area every evening. The house and outside furniture were freshly painted and completely dust free. Lori was super accessible and welcoming. We are already planning a return visit!
Best Fathers Day Trip Ever!!
I can't begin to imagine how we will top this years Fathers Day Trip after spending this past one at Tortuga Frio. First off, all I wanted was to spend time with my sister and our kids, away from our hectic work/school lives. This place was perfect! The house was situated right on the water where we could watch the kids play on the paddle boards, kayaks, and tubes while relaxing on the large shaded porch. Watching the family of cardinals and the half dozen hummingbirds go about their business, just feet away, under the fan was a pleasant surprise. We all swam in the crystal-clear, spring-fed waters. The soaring cliffs on the opposite side of the river gave us all the peace and privacy we were hoping for... and then some.
Lori was extremely helpful and responsive but we didn't need to contact her at all... except to thank her for the welcome package (better than we have ever received from any owner) personalized with a friendly note and a thoughtful Fathers Day card.
Lori is thoughtful and had everything we needed in the house and on the property.
I am already talking to friends about coming down for an adult hangout trip... but plan to bring the kids back again next year!
Stop looking... you just found your next vacation spot!
WOW!!!! You made my day, maybe even my month/year! I can’t thank you enough for that awesome review! You are the kind of guests that make my job so wonderful!
You just let me know when you want to come back and we will make it work! I have another property near where you stayed that sleeps 9 comfortably with wiggle room for a cot or two. Bring it on! Same water. Or you can stay right where you were! We look forward to having you, Tim!
Also, every year we try to add a new water toy. We have a few ideas, just trying to plan.
Take care and thanks soooo much!
Perfect Outdoor Spot
The home was great, very clean as advertised in photos. The outside was our favorite part. It was beautiful. Picture don’t do it justice. Kind hosts as well. I would book again.
The location is gorgeous and the house is very comfortable, incredibly clean and well maintained. The Browns are great hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a quiet spot to enjoy nature.
This property is nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. It features private water frontage and views against a scenic bluff backdrop. It is close to Kerrville, Fredericksburg, and Bandera.
