Three Rivers House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Voted 'Best Vacation Home Rental in Kaweah Country - 2014', the River Villa is a three bedroom, two bathroom A-Frame house with a huge upstairs loft on 14.5 acres straddling both sides of the main fork of the Kaweah River. The River Villa is riverfront and has incredible Kaweah River whitewater views as well as stunning mountain views of the High Sierra including Moro Rock, Alta Peak and Eagle's Nest. The River Villa is located approximately one mile from from the main entrance to Sequoia National Park and less than 1/4 mile from Mineral King Road which leads into the Mineral King entrance to Sequoia National Park (10 miles).

The River Villa comfortably sleeps 15 people and has numerous amenities including a fully stocked kitchen, a dining room and a living room with 55 inch HD LCD TV with Dish Network, Sirius Music channels and wireless high speed internet. Outside are a covered patio, two picnic tables for dining riverside, various chairs for relaxing, and horseshoes. The River Villa overlooks an island for much of the year (depending on the water level) and the Kaweah River whitewater rapid known as Bumper. You can swim, fish, hike and explore along our vast stretch of the Kaweah River. Due to its seclusion and location, the stargazing at night is nothing short of spectacular.

As of 2012, the River Villa has a new Maytag Bravos washer and dryer set, a new Kenmore ultra quiet dishwasher, high speed wifi and telephone with free local and long distance calling within the United States. Each bedroom has a queen bed, overhead ceiling fan and large exterior window (slider with screen). The loft has numerous twin beds and one full (double) bed with three overhead fans.

The River Villa was built as an A-Frame vacation home in 1971 and has never been occupied as other than a vacation home.

The River Villa is an A Frame with a block wall exterior and much woodwork in the living room and an exterior covered patio. The house is a bit Retro but has new carpeting in the downstairs bedrooms, hallway, living and dining room areas. The bathrooms and kitchen also have new tile and laminate wood flooring. The River Villa is not luxurious but is meant to be a relaxing and comfortable home on the river.

The River Villa is accessed via a private paved and gated drive off of Sierra Drive and the home sits away from the road and is private and secluded with no highway or road noise (just the sound of the Kaweah River).

About Robin

My family originally moved to Three Rivers in 1972. I left to go to school and work in San Diego and returned in 2005 with my soon-to-be-wife Stacie. We now have 2 kids (Anna and Maverick) growing up in Three Rivers and the same Sierra Nevada mountains I came to know and love as a kid.

I own and manage two hotel properties in Three Rivers, practice law part time, serve as a volunteer Tulare County firefighter/EMT and run trail races and triathlons when not spending time with family or working.

We were fortunate to be able to purchase the River Villa - it is a comfortable house with a fantastic 14 acres right on the bend of the Kaweah River. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Robin purchased this house in 2011

Why Robin chose Three Rivers

Location! Location! Location! Few river properties are riverfront with large tracts of land and views of the surrounding peaks. This property has it all and is also only one mile from the Sequoia Park entrance. It sits away from the highway on a private, gated driveway so it is peaceful, quiet and safe.

Wonderful Family Getaway On The River

  • 5 of 5
We drove up from LA (less than four hours) for a week long getaway with our 6 month old son. The house was big, comfortable, clean, stocked with everything we needed. We were isolated enough that it was amazingly quiet, and we could go days without hearing a car or seeing people, but close enough to amenities in Three Rivers, we could pop out for a great burger, or sandwich anytime. There were hawks and woodpeckers to watch during the day, bats at dusk, and sky full of beautifully bright stars at night. The river was clear and cool, deep enough for taking dips, full of places to lounge around and read etc, and great for rock hopping walks. We spent most of our time right there and could've happily stayed so much longer. And this is all before we even mention the proximity to Sequoia park -- which with the giant forest, crystal cave, moro rock is one of the absolute wonders of California. A great place and ever so glad we went.

Good Time

  • 4 of 5
Had a great experience with some friends. We rented the house for two days and it worked perfectly for our purposes. The views were excellent, the property was great and the bunk room upstairs was perfect for our sized group. I thought I remembered reading there was a ping pong table, which we never saw, but that wasn't a big deal. The house is nice. The décor is limited, but we weren't looking for much. It completely served our purposes and we had a great time. Definitely recommend to others.

Perfect Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We loved this location! River access was amazing, unexpected snow just miles away and only met the nicest people! The house was perfect! We met the nicest people in town during First Saturday and the kids even got to make an art project! We will go back! We did quite a bit of fishing, but did not catch any fish.

Beautiful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I had rented out the River Villa with a few friends for my girlfriends birthday, not knowing what to expect besides a few really nice photos and the access to the river and of course the park. But once we arrive we are greeted by a beautiful A frame lodge with a great sense of space and community, huge windows facing the river and stars, and friendly feel. Just outside is a short walk down to the river and as well a short drive to the park. The staff at Buckeye were wonderful and shared a lot of information with us about the area. The River Villa can accommodate large parties. I think up to 15 people. But it felt perfect for only 5 or 6 that were with us. There's even a fireplace which was perfect for the chilly March nights. Our two small dogs loved laying next to it all night while we played games and listened to music into the night. I can't finish this review without mentioning the amazing acoustics of the common area! So bring a stereo. Cozy up to the fireplace. And gaze at the stars. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Josh,
March is a fabulous time to stay at the River Villa - you get to experience the bountiful spring colors and cool clear days, and still snuggle by the fireplace at night. It sounds like you all took full advantage of all that the property has to offer. I'm glad the six of you were comfortable, and you're right, the house can accommodate fifteen people in beds, which is great for big groups.
Thank you for the compliments toward the staff, we all love what we do and hope it shows in our service to our guests. Thanks for taking the time to share your comments. Please come back and stay again soon. ~Robin~

Perfect Mountain river getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our group had a great time at the River Villa. The large room upstairs was perfect for all the kids to sleep in while the adults had rooms below. The house is quite spacious with a huge living room and good sized kitchen for several people to work on a big group dinner.
The real highlight, and the reason we'll be back, is the river right below the cabin. None of the kids wanted to do anything other than play in the river, which we did for one entire day and portions of the others.
Thanks for sharing this great spot.

Our trip

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this place...the river was refreshing and delightful. We played in the water with our grandchildren and slept by the rush of the river all night. We explored; watched the deer, quail, and birds; had a delicious dinner at The Gateway; and due to the Parks being closed, we gathered glimpses of the natural beauty around. The location and function of this home more than made up for our lack of other activities. Great property!
