About Susan Ampudia

Born and raised in Mexico City, been living in San Antonio, Texas for 6 years.

Went to summer camp for 5 summers in Hunt when I was younger, and spend many weekends enjoying this unique spot in the Texas Hill Country with my family and friends.

Susan Ampudia purchased this chateau / country house in 1986

Why Susan Ampudia chose Texas Hill Country

This has been our family's vacation home since 1986. Since we do not use the house year round, we decided to share this lovely spot by renting it through Home Away.

My parents bought the house in 1986, and remodeled the house in 1996. It is a prime spot on the Guadalupe River.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

It is a beautiful home with very spacious rooms, on an incredible spot on the Guadalupe River. It is a great place for a family getaway.

Kerville, Ingram, and Fredrecksburg, are among the fun towns that are nearby.

The city of San Antonio, Texas is an hour and 15 min. drive from the house.

Charming Hill Country Home

  • 5 of 5

Gringa Gulch is a charming house, very well situated if you're visiting Camp Waldemar, Bear Creek or Camp Stewart. We had a group stay for a wedding at Camp Waldemar, and it worked out perfectly for us. It's very quiet, and very nice to have private bathrooms for each of the three bedrooms. We felt right at home and loved being able to sit by the river in beautiful Fall weather. We really enjoyed our stay!

What a Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

Gringa Gulch is such a treasure! A perfect location on the Guadalupe and a charming home! We loved everything about it! Very, very clean and spacious rooms with comfortable furniture and beds. Great kithchen space and the patio/porch is perfect!

We celebrated my mother's 85th birthday party and everyone fell in love with this house.

Susan was a delight to work with and I felt she wanted us to enjoy ourselves and her home in every way.

The river was warm and inviting; lots of water toys and a rope swing!

Thank you to Susan for sharing Gringa Gulch with us! We hope to return next year!

Amazing River rental for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family came and stayed at the rental over the weekend and had an absolutely wonderful time. The house is very well kept & clean & has everything you could need to feel "at home"! The River was gorgeous & the kayaks & paddle board were a big hit with all of us. Of course, fishing too. Can't wait to go back again. Susan was very helpful and always quick to respond to any questions we had. Thanks again!! 😊

Our family of 9 enjoyed our stay on the Guadalupe River. We found the house and the amenities outstanding. We

stayed 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. The hedge needs cutting on the back patio. When you set in the swing you

could not see the dock for the hedge. The house was clean and had everything we needed including bottled water.

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful place.
