The entire house was recently insulated and a new A/C unit installed so the house will stay at your preferred temperature.

About Steve Ambrogio
I have been coming to Springville (River Island Country Club) since 1994 and fell in love with the area and people. The golf course is spectacular and always in great shape. Even though it is private, they are generous with public tee times and the price is very reasonable. The house is 116 yards from the clubhouse and is a nice walk after a long day on the course. Preferred tee times are accepted only for our guests. It is the perfect place to host your group tournament. We host our annual golf trip every August and it always turns out to be the best week of the year.
Steve Ambrogio purchased this House in 2012
Why Steve Ambrogio chose Springville
This is the only vacation rental at River Island. Since the house is right across the street from the club, you never have to drive once you get here. We have a private pool for warm days, 2 BBQ s and a very comfortable house to relax in. It is truly an amazing place. What a great home if you're having a wedding, party or reunion nearby. For weddings you have many choices, River Island CC offers catering and event space so for weddings it couldn't be more convenient. There are 2 other legendary venues in Springville for weddings, the White Barn and Rivers Ridge. All 3 are very popular with our guests and offer a great atmosphere for your special day. We book many wedding parties because the house is so private, comfortable and accessible to all ages.
What makes this House unique
This house has a large indoor dining table, a round dining table that flips over to be a professional poker table as well as a huge 10' picnic table outside to take advantage of the perfect Springville weather. Because the house is so centrally located and is one story, it is the perfect home for all ages. The house is very popular for families with young kids as well as older members. With plenty of beds and a quiet location, it is a favorite for everybody. We have had a number of groups use the house for the older members of the family for wedding parties and family reunions since it is so easy and convenient. Whatever the size or age of your group, purpose of your trip or time of year, we really do have it all.

Terrific place to stay
We stayed at River Island Rancho back in October 2015 because our daughter was getting married at Springville Ranch. Always meant to write a review. It met our needs wonderfully. Close enough to the venue and plenty of room for us to get ready without being on top of each other. The owner/manager were very accommodating. In hindsight, we would have loved to have more time to enjoy the house and surroundings after the wedding. I highly recommend this property.
Thank you Cecilia, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. With 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and our new game room, it is the perfect house for larger groups. There is so much to see and do in the area that even after 24 years we are still finding things we didn't know about. We would love to host you again.
Everything looking great!
Clean and updated
Lots of Beds and Bathrooms
Great place right on the golf course for a large family. We had 13 family members stay there with no problem. The place was really clean and had all we needed in the kitchen.
Beautiful and we'll maintained property
The house and location made the weekend trip much more fulfilling. We were there for a wedding but we felt that the house accommodated more than the surrounding cities had to offer. Steve's property is a must if you're planning a getaway in that specific area.
This is the greatest place to be with your family and friends.
We decided to spend our long weekend in Springville for the golf course, the giant Sequoia trees and the weather. We found River Island Rancho and booked it since it was on the golf course. With our group of 8, it was just over $60/person. The house is amazing, quiet and on the golf course with a private fenced pool, 4 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms, (3 rooms are suites with private bathrooms).
The garage was converted into a wonderful game room that we thoroughly enjoyed, comfortable, fun and spacious. The kids loved the Sonos music system, darts, ping pong and especially the guitars that they encouraged us to use. What a perfect space for the kids, we couldn't even hear them from inside. The second fridge and freezer in the game room was the perfect bonus for all the extra food we brought and prepared, (we used the BBQs for our dinners every night).
We drove up to Balch Park (45 minutes) and saw the giant Sequoias, something I will never forget and will do again next time we are there. The house had everything we needed, fully appointed kitchen, all linens and towels and tons of fun games for the kids. Every room in the house even has its own Sonos music speaker, how cool is that?
I can't rate high enough how much fun we had and what a great experience staying there was. We were lucky the house was available on our weekend as it was booked almost the entire summer.
Thanks you, see you again in the future.
Amazing house for our group
This place is incredible, the pool and the huge yard were great. The house is larger that we expected, the 5 bedrooms were perfect for our large group. The game room was wonderful, the boys played music, ping pong and darts and with the door closed we couldn't even hear them. There is music in every room and the kitchen had everything we needed for our meals. Loved the area.
We can't wait to go back again next year.
This property is on the 13'th fairway and across the street from River Island CC, the highest rated course in the central Valley. Guests of River Island Rancho receive preferred tee times by calling the pro shop in advance.
