Three Rivers Villa Rental Photos and Description
Riverfront redwood home. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath wth garden & beach. Mountain views.
A custom redwood home inside and out on two acres of land just 4 miles from Sequoia National Park. The property is fully developed and maintained as a garden with it's own private riverside beach. Many trees provide a shaded park like setting. A year-round regulated water flow provides a steady flow of water right next to the house. The Middle Fork of the Kaweah River, visible from the house, flows through the property just 100 yards from the house. The river normally runs quite swift during the spring runoff from April through June dependent on Sierra winter snow but becomes quite nice for swimming later in the summer when water temperatures rise into the mid-high 70's. Optimum for 4 people with 6 people maximum. Wir sprechen auch Deutsch.
We are now closed for the 2014 season due to extreme low river flow and resulting poor water quality due to the the California drought now in its third and worst year. Look forward to 2015 and a normal water year. Please inquire about 2015 bookings commencing in April.

About Bill Pooley
I am the grandson of the original property owner. My grandmother purchased the property and the garden was developed many years before the house was added. The garden is much the same as it was in the 50's except those little trees are now quite large. I am a kayaker on the Kaweah River since 1985 and author of The Kaweah River Page on the internet.
Bill Pooley purchased this villa in 1950
Why Bill Pooley chose Three Rivers
This property has been in our family since 1950. The home was built in 1965 and is custom throughout. The architect was Robert F. Street of Aberdeen, WA. The property and home are a family treasure. The love of the fabulous Kaweah River can not be understated.
What makes this villa unique
Home constructed of clear redwood inside and out located on a quiet private drive Year round water flows through the property adjacent the house at up to 500 gallons per second during spring and early summer. Numerous decks on all sides. The property has a well maintained garden with walking paths throughout. The sound of tumbling water is audible from inside the house. Quantities of sand in the garden lead to a large sandy beach area on the bank of the river. The property is considered by many as the premier riverfront property in all of the Three Rivers community.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time here! This was a last minute trip for us and it was the best decision we made. The house was very comfortable and we felt completely at home here. Be sure to walk down a couple hundred yards to a sandy beach and a great swimming hole. Our kids played for hours there! We will definitely be back!! Justin and family San Diego, CA.
