This is our second year staying at this location and this year was even better than last year. I was nervous about leaving my brand new Axis boat out on the river all night as the river's water depth will get shallow over night, but the incredibly nice and helpful owners assured me that my boat would be fine. They were absolutely right and my boat stayed in several feet of water all 8 nights. This house is one of a kind. I would never stay anywhere else because the water depth is such a major factor with a V-drive boat. Every morning we woke up to wakboarding and wake surfing on glassy water. You can get great runs for a mile up or down the river from this AWSOME house at any time. I don't have to worry about the water depth even with thousands of pounds of ballast on board at 6:00 am.

The owners supply this house with everything you could imangene. This year their dock had huge bumpers on it which was super convienant and kept my boat from getting scratched. The greatest memories with my family have been at this house. There's just so much to do and the house is so increadably specious that no one ever feels cramped. Playing air hockey and pool while looking out at the beautiful river was so epic. It's a place where family's can really bond. It really is the perfect vacation destination. My wife and I pay for it and inturn, we get family members out on vacation that would have normally stayed home all summer. It's so amazing to see kids and adults have the time of their lives. I guess my wife and I are stuck with continuing this tradition but that's alright with us. We can't wait until next year. Thank you so much to the Cardaras family for renting out your FANTASTIC home.

Thank you so much for making your home available to us. Everything was right where you said it would be. The house was ready to go the second we walked in the door. Your river maps were a big help for us in the mornings and having the dock, sweet. What a fantastic trip we had, this house has everything you need. I would suggest visitors only bring the clothes you need and any must have necessities. There are plenty of places to shop for food and lots restaurants near by. I'm a Black Bear Diner kind of guy. We came here for the water sports and weren't disappointed.

Marie is great and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to have a relaxing vacation on the Colorado River. Looking forward to another opportunity on the River.

Marie, thanks again.

Our stay at the Riverhouse Retreat was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many a house over the years and this was our favorite by far. The house was spacious, the water was deep enough for our boat and Marie was a delight to work with. We hope to be back next year. Thank you Marie.

The thing I like the most about this place is the location of the house. It's right on the water and the views are to die for. I always come home feeling refreshed and invigorated when I leave this place.It has a stress-free feel.
