house rental amenities

   This home offers too many amenities to mention, but let me try:

*NO CAN BAN. You can float the "horseshoe" in this area and not worry about the New Braunfels city ban on disposable containers.

*YES, THERE IS ALWAYS WATER IN THE RIVER HERE! Our water comes from below Canyon Dam and so it's always flowing to downstream users so there's always water here. It may not flow very fast at times, but it's there. So while the Guadalupe may have dried up ABOVE the lake, water will continue to flow BELOW the lake until it's drained. Hopefully that won't ever happpen.

*Direct waterfront access to the Guadalupe River. Right off our banks you can tube, canoe, kayak or just plop a chair down and relax in the most beautiful of Texas Rivers. Giant Cypress  trees line the bank at this shady retreat. The house sits on high ground. There are 51 steps from an upper deck down to the river level.

*Decks aplenty! The porch high above the Guadalupe has a covered wrap-around cement deck that offers the chance to relax and enjoy a beverage amidst the trees. Below that, a wooden deck features a patio table and chairs and a large bench for relaxing. The propane gas grill nearby means you can grill your dinner and serve it al fresco! Another level down there's an eight-foot wooden bar overlooking the river. Pull up the bench and have beer or dinner. Then, down by the river, there's another pavestone deck with two tables where you can relax as the tubers (or the ducks!) float by. Plus, there's a picnic table near the river as well!

*Recreation for the Kids! This home features a 16-foot trampoline with pads and side nets for your enjoyment as well as a wooden play structure with swings, a slide and a fort.

*Games: Come here to play! We have a full size volleyball net that is set up (bring your own ball), a croquet set on the porch that you can take out and even Hillbilly Horseshoes (otherwise known as ladder golf). Come here to play and have fun!

*Can you Canoe? We have a canoe with paddles by the river. You are free to take it on the water at your own risk.

***As you can see, this is a FAMILY home in a FAMILY neighborhood. Noise and excessive guests at any time of the day will not be tolerated. No more than FOUR vehicles may be parked at the house. Neighbors WILL call the sheriff's department if there is excess noise and we will do an 11pm drive-by on weekend nights to count the number of cars and check for noise. We want you to have a good time here, but this home is designed for families and responsible adults. Complaints about behavior, noise or vehicles may result in the entire or partial loss of your damage deposit. Thank you for your consideration!******

traveler reviews for this canyon lake house rental

Plenty of Room & Amenities

Review submitted: July 30, 2014   Date of arrival: July 25, 2014

I rented this house with a group of my friends for a yearly river tubing vacation. We are all late 20s/early 30s, some with toddlers and babies - so neither an overly rowdy young crowd, nor overly laid back older crowd, and this place fit our needs just perfectly. I've spent quite a bit of time over the years looking for rentals that had plenty of space to accommodate a large group, and not only is this one of the better options I've found, but it's extremely reasonably priced for what you're getting.

Most of the rentals that are in close proximity to those looking to spend a weekend at the river or on the lake are, to put it nicely - dumpy, because they are assuming they'll get a young, rowdy, disrespectful crowd. And many of those places are twice the price of the Beehive. The Beehive is nice, clean, new, and well put together - not dumpy like most of the rentals available close by. It's twice as nice and half the price - seems like an obvious choice to me.

The Beehive is great for the most obvious reasons - 4 bedrooms, full kitchen (which btw, is stocked with plenty of extra stuff that you'd normally expect to have to bring yourself - paper towels, garbage bags, oils, spices, sugar, coffee, creamer, plastic cups, matches, toilet paper, etc... so you are probably in luck even if you forget a few basic items.) But in addition to the more obvious factors of space to accomodate multiple guests - it also has multiple levels of decks (each with nice seating, great to eat dinner or have a glass of wine at) a propane grill, a hammock, a fire pit, MORE seating down by the fire pit and water, a canoe, a deck that goes right down to water, board games, washing machine, multiple bathrooms, a trampoline for kids (both young and old ;) a kids jungle gym - the list goes on. The river access was also great, and this sits on a really large, nicely manicured, convenient piece of land.... I wish we'd been able to spend an extra day because it was really convenient to just walk right into the river off the deck and float in an uncluttered part of the river while friends sat at the table and chairs (there is literally seating everywhere you go on this property.)

Location is also great - if the guys with you aren't lazy (which means you're luckier than us) you can easily walk right up to any of the tube rental places... it was right down the road. Even if you feel the need to drive, it's about 1.5 minutes at most.

Thank you, Beehive!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: Wow! Thanks so much! I couldn't have said it better! But then again I'm biased. You amazingly captured the essence of the BeeHive: a comfortable (not dumpy!) house with wonderful amenities that allow you to enjoy the bounties of the Hill Country and the Guadalupe River! It is the PERFECT place to enjoy the river with your friends and family. I hope you'll come back!

BeeHive on the Guadalupe River

Review submitted: July 23, 2014   Date of arrival: July 19, 2014

The BeeHive is a beautiful home on the upper Guadalupe river just below the Canyon lake dam. The home looks and feels like it was recently built with rounded corners and the kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops and flows right into the family room. Wifi internet access and flat screen TV is a plus. The access to the river is convenient and feels very private. Most of the tubing activity is downstream so we had this piece of the river to ourselves. If you prefer to float the river with the masses, river access and outfitters are within 2 miles. The bedrooms sleep 3 couples comfortably and there is space for at least another couple or 5 children. This is a fantastic river house for a 1 or 2 family vacation.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: You sound like a real estate agent! You really paid attention to the details of the house and its surroundings. It is recently built (2010)and it does have some nice amenities that older houses don't have. For instance, as you said, the granite counter tops, WiFi access and flat screen TV in the living room. Thanks so much for your wonderful review. We are so glad you stayed here and even more gratified that you had such a good time and enjoyed the things the house has to offer. We think it's a great place to be and I'm glad you agree!

Great Place for a Group

Review submitted: July 21, 2014   Date of arrival: July 16, 2014

We rented this great house on the river instead of boring hotel rooms for our small church youth group. It was just perfect. The kids had a blast in the river and we cooked our own meals together. A great porch for the adults to sit and supervise. Everybody that went felt that being able to stay together at the house was one of the best parts of our trip. It ended up being less expensive than the hotels, especially since we didn't have to eat out all the time. The owner was really nice and great at communicating before we got there. We spent one day at a local water park and then some time in San Antonio as well. It was a bit of a drive, but not bad at all. We will book this place again when we are headed that direction.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: Thank you so much for staying at the BeeHive and thanks for your nice review! I think you said it all when you wrote that you can save money by renting a house and cooking some meals there. And what precious family time that can be as well! I wish we had more nice groups like yours who knew about the BeeHive and the wonderful Guadalupe River and all the area has to offer. It is truly a place to escape.
