This is truly a unique vacation rental. The house is located directly on the Guadalupe River with over 225 feet of waterfront. It's yard is one of the largest yards you will find along the river and is fully shaded by 100 plus year old pecan trees and features indirect landscape lighting through out the property. The pool is 4 times larger then the average pool and offers a great patio area to enjoy both the pool and the wonderful river view. The pool has a water slide on the deep end which is 8 feet deep with a swim ladder next to the water slide. The shallow end features a large corner stair case. The house features a large covered deck plus additional kitchen deck for BBQ and private deck off of the master bedroom.

The house offers much privacy. Most waterfront houses have close by neighboring houses, this house has only one house nearby. Which is our 10 bedroom listing 31941. With both houses having extra large yards and landscaping, privacy between the two houses is very good. We have no houses across the street or across the river. So you truly have allot of privacy which is especially beneficial since larger groups tend to create unwelcome noise that can upset neighbors in a more typical neighborhood.

The house has been completely renovated to improve the layout of the interior to be best suited for a vacation rental. Interior walls have been upgraded to thickest available materials and fully insulated to help reduce noise inside bedrooms. Work was completed April of 2013 and all pictures are current although some may not show all of the improvements we have made.

The house is all one level. All 7 bedrooms are fully private rooms plus there is a loft bedroom that over looks the living room which has 16 foot high ceilings.

The living room has a 130 inch 1080P HD Projector with a high end surround sound system. The living room also features a large fireplace and one of the sofas opens up into a full size bed creating a semi private sleeping area.

The kitchen is modern, open to the main living and dinning area and is fully stocked.

The living area includes a high end home theater with motorized 130' screen that lowers down in front of windows. The projector has a native resolution of 1980x1080P to produce amazing picture quality with 1.07 Billion colors. The sound system features 7.1 Surround sound powered by Pioneer Elite high end receiver and 7 Polk audio Monitor series speakers that in most cases far exceed movie theater sound quality. Netflix and most other online content available plus the system includes XBox and wireless controllers. System features a front HDMI input if you want to hook up your own game system, lap top etc... We have wifi throughout the house plus 3 additional 32' HD TVs located in bedrooms.

Floor plans are online, as well as interior pictures of the Kitchen, Living room, Dining area and all bedrooms. Please visit our primary vacation rental River Haven by clicking 'view all my listings' or vrbo31941. Check our links for 170 plus pictures and read our 5 star reviews. We are committed to customer satisfaction. These 2 vacation rentals have a devoted staff of 4 people working full time including the homeowner on site while all work is done.

Most of our staff is family and each devoted to being our best at what we do. We all live only minutes away should you need our assistance or in the unlikely event any issues arise.

***We are in the process of installing a large top of the line Jacuzzi Hot Tub located under a covered gazebo we have added to the main deck. Completion expected by early to mid March. Pictures/ changes to floor plan coming soon. ***

Our guests comments best describe what to expect. However here is some background on us. I renovated and opened my vacation rental next door in 2003 with the goal to offer the best vacation rental in the area. Each year I invested the profits into the house to offer more and more each year. The house has grown to become one of the most successful vacation rentals in the area with a large percentage of our guests being repeat customers. I am often approached by other homeowners to manage there properties. However most are not willing to invest the time and money it takes to live up to our standards and we prefer to keep our full attention on River Haven and its new neighboring property the Oasis.

Although location, amenities, layout, yard and river are all major factors. The 4 of us are devoted to assuring a no hassle pleasant stay for all guests. Carlos Carranza, Denise Shawn and Jason Angelo all work full time to accomplish the many tasks involved. Combined between the 2 houses we average over 120 hours per week doing upkeep,cleaning, laundry, office work etc... We often hear guest say their vacation has left them with wonderful life long memories. We understand maintenance, upkeep and preparations are key imperative to maintaining a trouble free vacation at the house. And should any issue arise, we are immediately taking action to resolve any issue guests may have. One of our reviews mention we truly have a passion for what we do. This holds true for each of the 4 of us devoted to these two houses. When everyone involved truly cares about our guests experience, the end result helps assure guests will have a trouble free experience.

Darius purchased this house in 2012

This house is located next door to our existing 6 bedroom house that includes a 4 bedroom guest house. Our existing house ' The River Haven' stays rented most every weekend march through December and books most every night during peak season. Since River Haven opened in 2003 guests have very often asked if the house next door with the large lawn and huge pool was a vacation rental. It took 9 years, but the owner finally agreed to sell it to us. River Haven with 10 bedrooms is great for groups up to 28, this new house at 7 bedrooms plus a loft will offer another option for groups up to 25. The purchase of this house was not only to expand our business, but to eliminate the possibility of a new owner that may dislike living next to a vacation rental and make guests staying at the house feel uncomfortable or unwelcome. With this purchase the only 4 houses spread out over a large area are all vacation rentals. Waterfront property typically consists of houses tightly fit next to each other. Live in home owners can grow tired of strangers arriving and departing constantly and can become rude and make you feel unwelcome in there neighborhood. With no live in neighbors, no houses across the street and no houses across the river. This is truly a unique area offering much privacy while still being close by to local stores and attractions. Please review our guest comments for there impression of the neighborhood. Please note internet maps/street view almost always shows wrong location. Even correct location shows images 6 years old/ long before landscaping went in etc..Our pictures are kept current and up to date.

Unique area with only 4 houses in a large neighborhood. 2 of which are our vacation rentals. The other 2 are smaller vacation rentals privately owned and often vacant. No houses across the street or across the river. This offers much privacy and no awkward arrival into an established neighborhood that can often have neighbors who dislike living next to a vacation rental house. Very large fully landscaped yard with plenty of shade and flat areas for the kids to play. The pool seems to impress everyone with its much larger then average size and water slide. The covered deck that overlooks the pool, yard and river has a large outdoor table that seats 12-14 plus we have table and chairs on the dock and master bedroom deck. Pool area has in addition to table and chairs, 8 comfortable lounge chairs, large umbrellas for shade and accent lighting to really bring the landscape and yard to life at night. The waterfront is so large that groups can spread out and have plenty of privacy or gather all in one place on one of many large areas. As mentioned in description, the home theater is also a very unique feature to find in a vacation rental.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS

  • 5 of 5
Our experience at The Oasis was absolutely epic.This home is beautiful and perfectly laid out for family get-togethers. There were 10 adults, and four children, ages 10, 9, 3 and infant and there was plenty of room to play. The boys loved the game room and the pool. The adults loved having coffee on the river in the morning and lounging by the pool in the afternoon. The kitchen is amazing -- so well laid out and fully stocked. It's even bigger than the pictures show. The bedrooms and bathrooms were sparkling clean and comfortable. The living room with the big screen was super fun for everyone. We spent more time in there than we thought we would! This is also a perfect setup for a party -- we hung decorations and threw a 60th birthday party in the dining room followed up by a lively game of Taboo. We are already trying to plan another trip -- this place is addictive!

AMAZING RETREAT FOR A LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE!

  • 5 of 5
We planned a girls weekend at The Oasis for last weekend. The owners could not have been more accommodating, and kind. The house is so large and spacious. The halls seem like they just keep going. The pool is large, and there is a ton of seating. The lake has a great dock that we would retreat to each evening when the sun was gone from the pool. The grass was perfectly green, and for the first time in so many years we all saw lightning bugs. The lightning bugs took us all back to our childhood! They have really thought of everything at this house!! We had 20 ladies for the weekend, and we never felt crowded!! We are all looking at coming back to this house over and over again!

THE OASIS-THE PERFECT SPOT FOR A FAMILY REUNION!

  • 5 of 5
It is difficult to get twenty people to agree on anything, but everyone agreed that this house was perfect! I was responsible for finding the location for our family reunion and The Oasis was exactly what we were looking for. The pool was the highlight of the house during a hot Texas summer-- at times, we had all twenty of us in the pool and we still had room for twenty more! The pool is below the house and is accessed by two short flights of stairs that my 93 year old mother could easily navigate. The youngsters loved the sleeping loft and the gameroom-- they disappeared for hours at a time! The house is located on a quiet dead end street with very little traffic. The yard was beautiful and well maintained-- Jason came over everyday to check on/clean the pool and make sure everything was OK. The kitchen was undoubtably that best equipped kitchen that I have ever rented-- I carried a pickup load of extra equipment that I usually need (knives,cutting boards, bar towels, wine openers, graters, tongs, etc) but they had it all. Darius and Carlos are a dream to work with-- great communication and quick response to questions-- my deposit was returned promptly and they even searched the house for a missing item and mailed it to us.
I think the most outstanding thing about the house is its location-- It is only five minutes from Interstate 10, but it feels like you are fifty miles out in the Hill Country. We were only minutes away from any kind of activities you wanted- golf (three public courses within 15 minutes), tubing, waterpark, shopping, etc. --easy day trips into Austin and San Antonio. I even drove to Lockhart to pick up BBQ for one meal-- I was in line longer than it took to drive there and back! Thanks again to Darius and Carlos for a great stay!

BRIDAL PARTY FLOAT TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Wow...the pictures do not do this house justice! The setting was gorgeous, check in was a breeze thanks to Denise and everything was perfect. The beds were the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in besides my own! The owners had thought of everything down to laundry detergent for the large front load washer and dryer. The kitchen was also very well equipped...we know this because we cooked all meals for 23 for the weekend at the house. The pool was so large it was like a lake and floating off the dock was also enjoyed by many. We can't wait to go back....thank you for such a fabulous place to hang for such an important event!

GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
This was an awesome place to stay, I was afraid we might have booked our stay for a little too long - would we have enough to do? would the kids get bored?- however, we had a fabulous time everyday and everyone wanted to stay longer, or just move in. Tubing was a short ride away, floating in the river for a couple hours at a time was right outside and we all had a great time in the great big swimming pool. OUr little boys now believe they are experts at air hockey. The game room was a built-in babysitter. We were coming from the Houston/Sugar Land area and it took 2.5 hours to get there. Not many things you can do that are so fun and relaxing with so little travel time.

MEMORY BUILDER

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic view of the back of the "Estate" and river out of the panoramic windows!!! This place is a great attitude fixer - upper and a great place for family gatherings. Thanks for making it so. Everyone in our gathering this week said they had a blast and look forward to assembling again. We all appreciate the artistic investment made in this "Estate".

Thanks, Marja & Wes Carew and our great family and children

P.S. This is definitely a "memory-builder" for the children.
