Welcome to Casa Rio Vista Hill Country Ranch! Here is your chance to vacation in our truly spectacular Hill Country vacation property, located on a stunning 11 acre mini-ranch, overlooking the Pedernales River and its Canyon. This property is so unique with it's quiet and beautiful country location, the moment you drive up, you feel relaxed and totally at peace.

Casa Rio Vista is a First Class Home on this mini ranch and is conveniently located off Hwy 71 between just 15 minutes from Hi way 620 and the Hill Country Galleria Mall area and 40 minutes from the Austin airport. Yet we are nestled peacefully in a private community of estate and ranch homes surrounded by mother nature at its best. Casa Rio Vista has a distinct advantage over other homes, by it's incredible view of the Pedernales River with the Texas Hill Country all around you. Casa Rio Vista now offers a total of 6 bedrooms with 3 bedrooms in the main house with a huge Master Bedroom with King Bed, private bath, shower, and large Jacuzzi size tub. Our beautiful 2nd bedroom with Queen size bed, shares a full bath, shower and tub with the 3rd bedroom which offers twin sleigh beds and gaming systems for kids on a Flat Screen TV. To top it off all of the bedrooms have Plasma TV's, and DVD players! The home has a very large living and dining room area with rock fireplace that opens to a large covered patio area and overlooks the swimming pool/spa area.

I just love the back patio area as its the best place to sit and relax while watching the many deer and other wild life that pass by. The home also has a first class kitchen with granite counter tops, Jenn air stove, convection oven and microwave plus all of the other small appliances that you would need to make a simple or even gourmet meal! We also have available (extra deposit required) if you wish a large media room complete with a 55 inch plasma TV, stereo / video game systems and a 2nd stone fireplace. And for larger groups the home also has TWO separate guests houses one of which is a large guest house with 2 nice size bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other bedroom with two twin beds a nice size kithcen and dining area and 2 living room area's with TV's and stereo systems. A smaller but very nice 6th bedroom for the property is in the 2nd guest house which has a queen size bed and LCD TV and all of the beds in the main house and both guest homes have pillow top mattress which makes sleeping sooooo nice!

The house was professionally decorated and furnished in a manner you would expect from a first class home. The entire home is done in a combination of tile and berber carpeting with lots of windows which gives you a very open feeling or you can close it off. The main house has a large family room of all glass doors across the back, an elevated dining area, that seats 8 to 10, a separate bar area and a beautiful new kitchen with dining area in the kitchen that seats eight. Located out the glass doors in the living / family room is a beautiful patio area with plenty of table and chair and perfect for dining or relaxing. Off the kitchen is the laundry room that is yours to use at no extra charge. The house has new water purification system and other amenities include its own private lighted tennis court...I mean what other home do you find with a private tennis court! PLUS...a private play area for the kids and its own private boat dock (river/lake water level does vary at times as the area is still in a drought but will change with rain. Boating not possible as of June 2013 but is possible farther down at Lake Travis. Ask me about current water level as it can change quickly with rain) with steps going down to the waterfront through a park like setting. This Estate Home is located in a very quite and natural setting and is the best spot for riding bikes, walking, bird watching and seeing lots of other wild-life in its natural setting. What else would you need to make this the best vacation EVER!

For larger groups we also can offer you a second riverfront and first class home just next door Villa Rio Lado with another 4 bedrooms that sleeps up to 12 which makes the entire property perfect for family retreats, church retreats, tennis retreats with the gals, guys or couples and Casa Rio Vista Hill Country Ranch makes a prefect spot for large family gatherings. So between the two homes Casa Rio Vista and Villa Rio Lado you can sleep up to apx 28 people on the two properties!

OCCUPANCY POLICY. Because of the quality of our home we can not rent for parties or to minors. We work very hard to maintain a quiet family atmosphere for the enjoyment of our guests and neighbors. Any use of the home for purposes other than family vacations must be addressed at the time of the reservation. This website indicates the maximum number of guests allowed in our home. If this number is exceeded you may be asked to leave without a refund.

One final thing. We have taken a lot of pride, effort and money to furnish these homes in a top notch, first class manner that you don't find in most rental homes. We offer Casa Rio Vista to guests who like and appreciate nice things as we do...and more important, we only will to rent this home to people who know how and will take care of nice things and will respect the property. Another words, wild party animals need not reply! lol We work on a first come, first serve basis so call or email me today to check your date request. You'll be glad you did and we look forward to seeing you at Casa Rio Vista!

NOTICE: Most of Texas and the Hill Country are experiencing a once in 100 year drought. Sooner or later it will be back to normal but until we get some heavy rain water level's in the river behind the house is not enough for boating. Even though the area rivers and lakes are low, their are many other reason's you will love this home and property! You can however launch a boat just 15 min away at Pace Bend Park and thier is plenty of water in Lake Travis for lots of fun.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Breathtaking view overlooking the Pedernales River / Canyon area and the Hill Country. Total privacy yet only minutes from shopping, restaurants, water sports, hiking etc and just 45 minutes to Austin the live music capitol of the world. Marble Falls is only 20 minutes away, and Johnson City and Fredrickburg and other fresh water springs and pools are just a short car ride away.

So much to offer...very quite setting while over looking the river and hill country canyon area.

It was a pleasant stay with family and friends. Hospitality was excellent.
Only issues we had was that we could not use the one bedroom house due to lots of Gas smell. Fortunately, one family decided to stay in the media room and share bath room. One of the Bath room lock wasn't functioning and we have to come-up with our own creative way to lock that bath room.

Owner's Response: Hello Mohi -

Thank you for your visit to Casa Rio Vista in The Texas Hill Country and thank for your review. Happy to hear you and your family enjoyed the home and thanks for letting know about the gas odor and bathroom door lock. The bedroom you are talking about is attached to the garage and sometimes people open by mistake the return air vent to the garage area and that's why you might have smelled gas. Anyhow...we have closed it off so that should not happen again and the door lock also been fixed. We love the Hill Country and hope you come to visit us again and again. Thanks!

We stayed at this rental in July of 2013. We were very impressed by the size of the property. It has plenty of space for several families. Young kids will love it. Mark was very helpful and easy to work with. We will definitely be coming back when the river is full.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mike, glad to hear you had a good time. The river is just one of the many reason people come to the Hill Country and my property and will come back sooner or later with rain. We just got the new playground installed and will be doing other improvements this fall so please do keep me in mind for the next time.

4th of July Celebration to remember

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 10, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
We had a group of 23 - family members - coming from New York, Florida, and various parts of Texas. Since my immediate family could not travel far with a new born baby, the group elected to meet in Texas (I live in Houston). It was cheaper for family members to fly into Austin than Houston so we decided to look at vacation rentals near Austin (and we are very happy that we did). This beautiful estate is located in the Hill Country, has all the amenities, and is close to Lakes, Shopping, Austin, State Parks, etc. You could completely relax (even with 23 people present - as it is so spacious) or you could stay busy seeing the sites and participating in water sports, etc. Local Vineyards were a big hit for some of our group, while others enjoyed wave-runners on Lake Travis. The houses were perfect for our group - balancing intimacy with privacy. Everyone was pleased with the accomodations - especially the pool. Awesome 4th of July Celebration was had by all. Thanks Mark for your assistance in bringing my family together! I highly recommend this spot for a family get together!

Owner's Response: Hi Salvatore, glad to hear your family had a great time and thank you for the kind words. We feel so blessed to have such a special place in the Hill Country and be able to share it with others. The staff works hard to try to make each guest as happy as possible as vacations and family time are to few and far between. Thanks and Please keep me in mind for the next time!

This is a wonderful property. The owner and the groundskeeper are great people that really go the extra mile to ensure you have a great time.

The gazebo and perfectly placed hammock were my favorite parts. The way the house is angled the sunrise is absolutely amazing.

Thanks again!

The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Everyone wanted a turn in the hammock under the huge Oak tree. There were chairs circled outside that provided a great place to sit and relax and chat with the family. There was also plenty of room indoors. It was nice having separate houses so that the families with small children had their own space. There was also a TV/game room with a sliding door that separated the kitchen/breakfast space from the TV room. Great idea if gaming and/or TV gets loud.
