River Houzz

Martindale 4 Bedroom(s) 3 Bathroom(s) Sleeps 10

Perched back in the shady trees, along the peaceful banks of the San Marcos River, you will find the wonderful hill country retreat that we call River Houzz. This splendid 4-bedroom home is a truly unique find for all types of groups seeking a fun, relaxing weekend away from all the big city lights.

Upon your arrival, you will be swept away into a most calming state of mind thanks to the warm rich colors, Texas-style décor, and cozy furnishings. The very spacious living room has plenty of room for everyone to gather on the large leather sectional and kick back with some popcorn to enjoy a good movie. The open floor plans provide a great flow throughout the entire home. The kitchen opens up to the living area and dining area so no matter what room you are in, everyone feels together. This kitchen is a fantastic feature with ample counter space, a French door refrigerator, and all the odds-n-ends needed for the expert chef of the group to prepare tasty treats for all! River Houzz has a solid wood dining table with seating for 8 so everyone can dine together, or for a more causal bite, grab one of the three barstools that pull up to the elongated bar area.
The master suite located just off the dining room contains dark, upscale furnishings including a plush king size bed with fine linens and a master bath with double sinks and oversized, solid glass walk-in shower. This room has been transformed into the perfect romantic escape! A private, covered porch overlooking the river is a key feature to this fantastic suite that is perfect for sipping morning coffee and watching the hummingbirds gather round the feeder. The second bedroom offers two full size beds while the third room, filled with tons of windows, presents one queen size bed, twin bunk beds, and a door leading out to the best part of the property, the back yard!

For those looking for their own romantic retreat the guest house offers additional accommodations for just two guests. This darling one room guest house offers fun furnishings with pops of color, a large television, comfortable sofa, full kitchen complete with stove,refrigerator, and all the necessities one needs to prepare simple meals. Enjoy beautiful river views on the back patio area while enjoying a favorite beverage of choice. The bathroom offers a roomy walk in shower and plenty of counter space to tidy up for the evening.

This is back yard is definitely unlike any other you will find. An enormous covered pavilion equipped with ceiling fans, tons of shade, generous seating, propane grill, gas fire pit, and phenomenal views of the river down below. This is sure to be everyone’s favorite hangout spot for the entire duration of your stay! When you’re ready to cool off, take the stair walkway right down to the refreshing blue waters of the San Marcos River. You can enter by the pull down ladder for a quick dip, or take the more spontaneous approach and jump off the rope swing for a complete submerge!

Whether your planning a fun family weekend or a simple girl’s getaway, this house will properly accommodate everyone and quickly find it’s way to becoming a routine tradition! If you travel just a few minutes into the town of San Marcos you can find tons of great restaurants, the very popular outlet malls, or even enjoy a glass-bottom boat tour at Aquarina Springs.

If you choose this beautiful home River Houzz, and want to float the river there is a place in Martindale about 4 miles away from River Houzz called Don’s Fish Camp. You can rent tubes here and they have shuttles that takes you further down the river and then you float back to your car and they take care of hauling the tubes.

They also have a neat little beach area if people are wanting to pay a $5 entry fee. You can set up chairs, swim, listen to music.

River Houzz

Reviewed on 2021-07-06 by Alfredo Pineda
The refrigerator in this house does not cool. All of our 4th of July BBQ was spoiled with MAGGOTS. Food and drinks were all warm and we had to trash it all so we don not get sick! The owner refused to give us a credit for all the lost food. It Ruined our holiday weekend.  The River is great if only they would purchase a new refrigerator for the home. Called to report it but my voicemail was not returned. We will not return for this problem.

Loved it!
