LARGE LUXURY HOME ON 10 ACRES WITH 600 FEET OF THE BLANCO RIVER

Wimberley House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14, Home Overlooking The Blanco River

The Wimberley Retreat on the Blanco (just purchased in June 2014 and formerly known as '600 on the Blanco') offers a unique experience with a 3300 sq ft house that sits on 10 private acres with access to 600 feet of deep river frontage on the Blanco River. There is a cliff on the opposite side of the river that allows for ideal privacy and quiet. No other homes are in sight. Escape the city pace and bright lights for relaxing on the river with extended family or friends or co-workers. Have coffee on the deck or patios in the morning while a flock of wild turkeys roam the yard or several deer drink from the river. Enjoy an evening drink under the bright stars. The deck is also a great place to watch the many different species of birds on the property.

The majority of the river bank is shaded by 100+ year old cypress trees. The river itself has something for all ages with shallow areas perfect for small children as well as a deep swimming hole about 25 feet long. We are lucky to be located on a part of the Blanco that has deep water even in extended drought periods. The private grassy ten acres of The Wimberley Retreat provide more than enough room for everyone to run, play, throw a ball or frisbee, have a kickball game, or just explore the wonders of nature: birds, fish, turtles, frogs, lizards, butterflies, and wildflowers. Some fishing and butterfly nets are provided. Feel free to bring your fishing poles, river shoes, kayaks and canoes.

The Wimberley Retreat house is perfect for large gatherings as it provides a soaring great room with a 20 ft ceiling and a wall of windows facing the river that is open to the kitchen and dining area seating 12. The outdoor grilling area and deck seats 14 and additional chairs are provided for the lawn and river area. The kitchen and coffee/wine bar areas are equipped with all appliances, extensive food and drink preparation and serving ware, and indoor/outdoor dishes to accommodate any large meal. Each of the 4 large private bedrooms have patios/decks and attached full bathrooms with an additional 1/2 bath located off the entry hall. There are 3 kings and 6 twin beds in total. Two of the twin beds are in the loft area that offers access to a full bathroom via a jack-and-jill bathroom layout. The loft area also provides a ping pong table and kids TV/movie and toy area for hours of entertainment and an opportunity for the adults to visit in the common areas downstairs. More movies, books, coloring books, puzzles, and games for all ages are in the downstairs common areas, along with a cable TV and music system. Whether you are planning a mini-reunion, ladies getaway trip, couples gathering, team-building session for a small group, multi-generation family gathering, shopping or winery tour, or celebrating a special birthday or milestone, the Wimberley Retreat will provide all of the privacy, space, and amenities your group will need.

Area Attractions: Explore the areas around Wimberley by visiting Gruene, TX and the historic Gruene Hall and the Guadalupe River; Visit the Driftwood and Duchman wineries nearby or partake in some stellar Texas BBQ at the Salt Lick. There are plenty of opportunities for shopping in town for antiques and crafts or visit the San Marcos outlet stores 15 miles away.

About Roby Norvell

The Norvell family hails from Houston, TX where we, like most Americans, lead over-booked lives full of schoolwork, school activities, sports, civic, and work responsibilities. We have owned another property in Wimberley since 2008 and have come to love the area. Our kids are young and our parents and family do not live nearby. We wanted a place for our extended family to get together to run, swim, climb, explore, spend time as a family, and just enjoy the beauty of nature. We wanted to add another property to enjoy with family and provide a vacation retreat for families or friends looking to escape to the Hill Country. We hope your family enjoys our Wimberley Retreat as much as we do.

Roby Norvell purchased this house in 2014

Why Roby Norvell chose Wimberley

We searched for 2 years+ to find an ideal home located on a deep and easily accessible section of the Blanco River. We decided on this retreat when we found the perfect combination of easily accessible deep and shallow water to provide river entertainment for all ages. The house is also ideal with the soaring windows facing the river and the 4 bedrooms each with their own bathroom which provides everyone with the privacy they need.

What makes this house unique

The view from the great room and the wrap around deck and patios provide stunning views of the surrounding bluffs and deep river down the slope from the house. You can't see another house from the property and you feel that you're in an isolated retreat away from everyone else.

Air Force Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Without a doubt, this is the best equipped, well furnished home with the most convenient floor plan we have ever rented from VRBO. We four couples have been getting together for over 40 years! This home is immaculately clean with amenities galore (soaps,shampoo, paper goods, hair dryers in each BR, even cotton swabs), and every possible kitchen utensil. The beds were very comfortable. A huge deck with more than ample outdoor furniture can easily accommodate everyone. Absolutely outstanding!!!!

Great House!!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 8 enjoyed this house so much. It is very clean, comfortable, and has everything you need. We have been renting houses via VRBO for maybe 15 yrs. and this is the BEST yet! The owner was very helpful and made "sealing the deal" easy and non-complicated.

Fantastic House!! Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We held our family reunion here over the July 4th weekend and everything about this lovely house was just perfect! Our three daughters and their families joined us making 8 adults and 8 kids ages 6 - 18. The kids enjoyed the river along with a couple of the dads. The kitchen was equipped with everything you might need, including a pancake griddle and forks for s'mores. The 4-person tables were great for checkers, chess, Go Fish, and even a friendly poker game! We would love to come back here again!

If your family has really young children, the stairs might be a hazard.

Owner's Response: We're so happy you enjoyed the house, thank you very much. Please do come back and enjoy the Blanco! Regarding the stairs, I just wanted to clarify for other guests that they are carpeted, have handrails and are of a standard angle for a two story house. Thanks again!

Family reunion on the Blanco

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend at 600 on the Blanco. The home was immaculate and well-kept. I loved the wall of windows. The kitchen was completely stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. The play area had a box full of costumes, and the kiddos played dress-up all weekend. We even had a fashion show.

There were 11 in our group and there was plenty of room for all. Robert was there to greet us, and stayed to make sure we were settled in. He was upfront about an unexpected water leak, and explained what was going on so that we had no surprises when we arrived (a small portion of a wall in a downstairs bathroom was in the process of having the sheetrock replaced, and was covered with plastic). In addition, Robert apologized for any inconvenience with some excellent local wine.

The water depth in the river was cool and swimmable, although I would have preferred more flow. (We ended up going to Canyon Lake and renting a pontoon.) We’ve visited other destinations during August in the Hill Country only to find the rivers nothing more than brackish puddles. This location was much, much better.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful home to anyone visiting the Texas Hill Country.

Our annual family of 10 retreat was great.

  • 5 of 5
Everyone loved the house and no one wanted to leave when the time came. The house was perfect in every way and would not hesitate to return to this lovely place. The 600 ft river area was enjoyed by the kids and grandkids. We just can't say enough about this place. All you need to pack to stay here is your clothes, towels for the river and food because everything else is provided. I would recommend this place to most anyone, but because of it having stairs one would have to be their own judge. Thank you!!!
