The house was plenty big enough with 4 bedrooms although I did not realize until we got there 1 of the rooms was down below and not upstairs with the rest. The access to the river was awesome and we really enjoyed hanging out there. The beds however were probably the worst I have ever slept on a massage / chiropractor might be needed lol. Having zero linens might be a deal breaker for me in the future. This was my first time renting a house with no linens and it was just a lot to pack sheets, blanket, towels, wash clothes for 7 beds and 10 people. We basically had 1 whole car for linens. We had a great time and I will be doing laundry for the next couple of days.
Good location. Nice house but would like to see it a little bit cleaner for the next group to stay.
Overall a good experience.
Great place and location
The house was nice and had plenty of room. It definitely had what we needed it for in order to float the river. Anywhere on the Guadalupe is nothing short of great. The only "problems" we had were that the listing needed to be updated. There are 3 separate sheets for checkout which were all a little different so that was confusing. The full beds on the bottom bunks weren't true mattresses so they were uncomfortable for all adults to sleep in and the fourth bedroom and third bathroom are actually located downstairs. That wasn't a problem for us, just would've been nice to know ahead of time. Definitely need to bring all your own toiletries, bedding, bathroom & kitchen towels, etc.
Otherwise, we did have a slight maintenance problem and they came out promptly to resolve the issue. We'd definitely stay at either Penthouse or yellow house again - our neighbors were close, but we didn't bother each other even with loud music.
Overall it was good
Nice place, and good location. Overall it was a good stay.
but a couple small issues that would have been more helpful for our stay:
1.) the check in Information gives you a lock box code to get the key, but there is no key in the lock box. The code is actually the combination for the doors themselves, which was not explained at all and made getting in a little more difficult then it should have been. We had to figure out on our own that You have to put the code in and literally turn the door knob at the exact same time, or it won't work. A little frustrating that this wasn't explained.
2.) it would be very helpful to have some information for the guests on tube rental/shutttle back suggestions. Yes there is direct access but we had to go find a way to get shuttled back and it ended up being way more complicated then it was worth. We ended up going down the road to L&L camp grounds and dropping in there the second day to save the hassle.
FYI for anyone getting on it was about 6.5 hours to float down from the house to rocky beach, which is way to long in my opinion. I would highly suggest you get in at L&L like we did the second day to make your lives easier. It cut the float down to about 4.5 hours.
PERFECT HOUSE WITH TONS OF OUTDOOR SPACE ON A PRETTY COOL SPOT OF THE RIVER!
We usually stay closer to the first and second crossing portion of the river, and have never stayed this far up but I was surprised at how neat the portion of the river this house is on was! The house is across a little neighborhood street and a down a little piece of land from the river but you can see the water from the house and it is a short walk down with a pretty neat entry into the water. A short walk across the river and you are on a little island where you can hang out. The house itself was wonderful, and everything that it said it was. No surprises, which is always a plus. The owners were thorough in explaining everything and we had zero complications. Overall it was a wonderful stay and I would stay here again and recommend this to friends and family. We also hung out with the people that were staying in the yellow house next door which had the coolest layout and a very neat outdoor kitchen area, I believe the owners of this house own all three houses in this little row. There was tons of space for parking too and it was very close to Whitewater where we saw a concert and also to the Horseshoe where we like to float.
We had a great time. Home is in a great location.
Our Penthouses are right on the river with private access.
