Overview

Needles House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 3 bathroom River-front house. Weekly winter rates of only $700/week!

Two full bedrooms, three bathrooms and a REAL house to stay in! House is on 5 acres of riverfront, with our own launch ramp, marina and steps to the water. You get privacy and seclusion, and the river is just steps away. The boat thunder doesn't rock our windows, as we are up on a bluff, above the river noise.

There is a second house that we also rent next door (VRBO#723143), which is 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bathroom, with an incredible patio and view with two awesome hammocks! It sleeps 4 people on one queen bed and two twin beds. If the primary house is occupied, the other house may be available, please ask.

We have found that many of our guests prefer to rent both houses at the same time, so they can have a group of 10 -12 people. Let us know if that fits into your plans.

The water level below Davis Dam fluctuates widely. We obviously have no control over the water level/flow. We have two ramps available, one of which is functional at almost any water level- though it may not be safe to take your boat on the river with the water so low. Our dock can be used when the water level is up, but not when the water is very low- the marina empties out. We recommend pulling your boat onto your trailer at the end of the day. so there is not risk of having your boat stranded at the dock the next morning.

What makes this house unique

Most of the rentals along the river are mobile homes right next to the roar of boat engines. This is a real house, with privacy and seclusion from the noise traffic.

river trip

  • 3 of 5

The house is very nice and comfortable, the panoramic view was awesome, The owner was very helpful and the kitchen has everything you need, We loved the shower, however we were never able to launch our boat , the river was to low, there is a big grassy area but when we go to the river we want to be in the water and there was no easy way in or out of the water,, so in order to enjoy the river we had to go else where which defeated the whole reason of us rented a house with a boat ramp we could never use, I wish the river looked liked the picture we saw when we were looking for a place, because then it would of been almost perfect, How ever we did make the most of our stay and we had a good time, We went to the casino's and pirate cove. and we did do some fishing on the dock,

~Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

The river front property on the Colorado River was a perfect family retreat. The listing information was extremely accurate, the photos of the house were spot on and the property is clean and well maintained. Any questions we had were answered promptly and without issue by the owner and his friendly staff. We rented the main house and one other small 2 bedroom on the property and comfortably accommodated 10 people (6 adults and 4 children). The property itself is quite expansive, gated and very private. My children as well as the other family we came with enjoyed the huge lawn on the property to run around and play games on. The private boat launch is also a plus in which you don't have to worry about anybody trying to get on your boat or dock near it for that matter. The owner was actully on site making sure everything was perfect when we had arrived the next day, giving us plenty of time to get situated. The morning sunrises are magnifcent with breathtaking views of the moon at night. If you are considering renting this property...look no further!! This is your house!

Beautiful river view house on the Colorado river

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights in this gorgeous river view house in Needles, CA. It was awesome!! The home is beautifully furnished with nice decoration, well maintained, and very clean. The pictures reflected the real house. We enjoyed the private dock for our boat and toys. The home offered so much more than we ever imagined. Brett, the owner, and Marge, the Manager were great and pleasant to work with. The owner provided good emails with helpful suggestions such as good restaurants, grocery stores and the cheapest gas station in the area. We will definitely be returning soon and off course recommend this home to our friends!
