Rio Casita (Little River House) is located in the middle of a beautifully wooded acre of land on the pristine Blanco River. The clear, cool, spring fed river is ideal for kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying nature. Drive the short three miles along River Road that flanks the Blanco into Wimberley, and take a shopping spree through some of the most unique shops you will see anywhere.
This is a very romantic spot with plenty of privacy. The kids will love it also. Walk down the easy sloping hill from your back porch and directly into the river. Great swimming and wading and a superior place to enjoy an ice cold adult beverage. It's all here, come and see!
After fun in the sun and river, head back to the house to enjoy all the ammenities: outdoor grill, great backporch for hanging out, gourmet kitchen - everything you need, except the food. When the sun sets the fire flys appear. It is magical to lay in the hammock and watch them swirl around you.

My husband and I fell in love with Wimberley. When we found Rio Casita, we just had to purchase it. We love being there and use it as a family get away. We love the quietness, the wild life and the easy pace that this place offers. We are very happy that we can share all of that with you.
Connie purchased this House in 2006
Why Connie chose Wimberley
We love being on the water and the Blanco is just right for us and our dogs. Our golden retriever thinks he is in Heaven when he is there.
What makes this House unique
Relax, relax, relax. Lay in the hammock, pull a chair out into the middle of the river; read; walk; listen to nature or just sit on the back porch. A unique place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, if you demand a little more activity in your life, the Village of Wimberley is just 2 miles down the road.

The perfect family retreat!
We brought our two daughters (ages 16 and 12) along with their two friends. The first thing they said as we pulled up is “the house is so cute!” After oohing and aahing as they walked through the house, we walked down to the river and took in the breathtaking view. Shortly after arriving, we were all in the crystal clear river. Since the river is nice and shallow, my husband and I were able to just sit in the middle of the river and watch the girls play and explore. I personally enjoyed the colorful dragonflies that liked to land on me while I sat in the river.
Every day, the deer, turkeys, birds, butterflies, and fireflies would come to visit us in the backyard. We loved watching them from the porch and even from the kitchen windows while we were making meals. The wildlife was definitely a highlight for the girls. We even encountered two goats on River Road on a daily basis. The day we were leaving, the goats approached our vehicle and put their heads through the open windows for the girls to pet them. It was like they were saying goodbye! We also saw turtles sunbathing on rocks along the river.
Throughout our stay, the girls kept saying “this is so much fun!” Coming from teens and preteens, that is a huge compliment! We all want to come back on a regular basis. It was truly one of our best vacations! Thank you Busby family for sharing your home with us!
I am so glad that you were able to enjoy everything that the beautiful Wimberley Valley has to offer. Get away from technology and relax and enjoy a simpler way of life for a while. Please return. We will love to have you come again.
Thank you, Connie
Peaceful and relaxing
My wife and I spent Easter weekend here with our dog Penny. What a gem this house is!
Hummingbirds, cardinals, singing birds, butterflies, soaring hawks, and a family of three does visited us each day. We put our chairs in the river, took in the sun and the breeze. Penny was anchored to a 20 ft. lead to keep her safe and in our sight. She loved splashing around in the river, too!
As others say, this house has everything you need... and if you forgot something, HEB is 5 minutes away.
Thank you, Connie, for sharing your beautiful home.
Rio Casita is a perfect getaway. It is beautiful and well maintained and has great amenities. I
We had a wonder time. Connie has thought of everything for a relaxing get away. The home is beautifully decorated and the back porch...my favorite. What a great place to enjoy dinner and a glass of wine. We watched deer, turkeys and all kinds of feathered friends come by each day. I would most heartily recommend Rio Casita.
Wonderful Relaxing Stay!
This house is perfect for just relaxing and being part of nature. The house is very quaint and perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle and being on the Blanco is a plus. Both the front and back of the house are fenced in for your dog, if you bring one. The master bath was large and wonderful. We wished we could stay longer, but know we will be making another visit in the upcoming months.
The house was perfect. Adorable, clean and quiet. We will definitely rent again!!
Great house and location.
This is our third trip to Wimberley and first visit to Rio Casita. We love Wimberley and the Blanco River. Rio Casita was the perfect house for us. It’s very neat and well equipped and is a short easy walk down to the river. The fenced back yard
Was great for our Golden Retriever, Molly. She had great fun and met some new dog friends who came to visit. We had a great time and will try to get back some day.
Other Activities: horse shoes, kayaking, tubing, zip-lining, visit the wineries, Memorial Day and Fourth of July Rodeo, Trade Days, first week-end of each month, great restaurants and just relaxing on the river
