BEAUTIFUL BLANCO RIVER COTTAGE - RIO CASITA

Wimberley House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6

Rio Casita (Little River House) is located in the middle of a beautifully wooded acre of land on the pristine Blanco River. The clear, cool, spring fed river is ideal for kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying nature. Drive the short three miles along River Road that flanks the Blanco into Wimberley, and take a shopping spree through some of the most unique shops you will see anywhere.

This is a very romantic spot with plenty of privacy. The kids will love it also. Walk down the easy sloping hill from your back porch and directly into the river. Great swimming and wading and a superior place to enjoy an ice cold adult beverage. It's all here, come and see!

After fun in the sun and river, head back to the house to enjoy all the ammenities: outdoor grill, great backporch for hanging out, gourmet kitchen - everything you need, except the food. When the sun sets the fire flys appear. It is magical to lay in the hammock and watch the swirl around you.

My husband and I fell in love with Wimberley. When we found Rio Casita, we just had to purchase it. We love being there and use it as a family get away. We love the quietness, the wild life and the easy pace that this place offers. We are very happy that we can share all of that with you.

Connie purchased this house in 2006

We love being on the water and the Blanco is just right for us and our dogs. Our golden retriever thinks he is in Heaven when he is there.

Relax, relax, relax. Lay in the hammock, pull a chair out into the middle of the river; read; walk; listen to nature or just sit on the back porch. A unique place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, if you demand a little more activity in your life, the Village of Wimberley is just 2 miles down the road.

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY WITH YOUNG KIDS!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I LOVED this house! The house itself is very nice and spotless. It has everything your everyday house would have. It is has nice furniture and is decorated very nicely.

The back porch is comfortable and cool, even in the dead heat of a Texas summer. The fenced back yard is perfect if you have little kids. They can play and run around without you having to worry about them making their way down to the river.

The river behind the house is shallow, which makes it perfect for small children. We have a 3 year old and a 1 year old. They loved being pulled around by us in their floats. We set up lounge chairs in the water and relaxed while the girls walked around and fed the fish bread and goldfish crackers. The bank at the river is completely shaded so its nice to get a break from the sun if you need it. If you walk down the river for just less than 5 minutes, it gets deep so you can float.

There is a lot of wildlife roaming around. We saw deer, turkeys, fire flies, and road runners. My girls thought that was really cool.

We plan on returning every summer from now on. I even told my husband I want to buy this house!

WONDERFUL TIME AS USUAL!

  • 5 of 5
This was probably our 6th visit to Rio Casita and we already have it reserved again in late October. We love this house and the town of Wimberley. We now consider it our home away from home. It is the most relaxing and enjoyable place to stay and we always hate to leave and look forward to coming back. Wimberley is a great little town with nice little shops and good restaurants (be sure to eat at the Leaning Pear and Marco's). Everyone we have met when visiting here have been very friendly. We usually stay during the week, but if you include a weekend, the market days are a lot of fun, we have driven up and back the same day just for that. We bring our 2 dogs and they love running down to the river and back. We see deer and fire flies at night, and the occasional wild turkey. It does not get any better than this!

THE RAIN CAME!

  • 5 of 5
Upon our arrival at Rio Casita, the thunder started to rumble and the clouds opened up to some much needed rain! We took it as an omen that this was going to be a wonderful getaway and we weren't disappointed. After the rain cleared, the nights were cool and so enjoyable on the back porch and the dogs loved seeing all the birds, deer and even a random turkey walk by. The rooms are all decorated so nicely, yet comfortable enough to feel like a home away from home. We shopped the Wimberley trade days since it was the first Saturday of the month; get there early though as parking can be a little hectic later in the day. We highly recommend the Cypess Cafe and tried to go to the Leaning Pear but it was just too crowded-oh well, maybe next time. My favorite thing was definitely pulling the chair out into the middle of river and enjoying the cool water flow across my feet. I sat out there for hours reading and soaking up the sunshine.

Thank you Connie and family for sharing your quaint rock home with us; we hope to visit again some day in the not too distant future.

PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Rio Casita was exactly what we were looking for - quiet, relaxing, extremely clean and up to date. Just like a brand new home. They are right when they say all you need to take is food. The fenced yard was perfect for our lab, who also had a great time. The river depth was perfect for him. I love to take pictures and we spent hours just sitting on the back porch taking photos. Wildlife everywhere - especially deer. We felt isolated yet in a few minutes there we were on the square in Wimberly shopping. What fun. We highly recommend Rio Casita and look forward to returning.

MY DOGS WANT TO COME BACK!!

  • 5 of 5
To heck with the dogs, we want to come back! This is a great house - very inviting, lots of privacy and a great deck to sit out on. Our dogs are inside dogs and only go out for walks so this was a real treat for them to be able to sit outside on the deck and roam in the fenced in area.

When we took them to the river, they were in heaven playing around. Sadie even chased a wild turkey!

We would recommend this place to anyone - elderly, with or without children, girls getaway. You are close but not too close to everything.
