May, 2024 - "The house is your typical river or lake house. It works really well for a large group of people. The house could use some updates, and better lighting. But all in all it works. There are plenty of beds, and lots of space for people to do all different kinds of activities. The second fridge on the porch really helped with storing food and drinks for so many people. I loved the lights down by the river."

May, 2024 - "We love staying in homes like these that feel like home. This is definitely where you want to have your family reunion so the kids can stay in the bunkhouse, and there is so much to do! The hosts are very responsive at what I thought would be unreasonable hours. We will definitely be back next year for Frio Float Fest 2025!"

April, 2024 - "This was a good location for our family trip. There is easy access to the Frio with lovely Cypress trees shading the river. There is a hammock and a fire pit down by the river entrance. In the backyard there is bbq, cement cornhole set up, horseshoes, a tire swing, and areas for volleyball and tether ball. Most of the rooms are however are dark (which can be a good thing). A fan is helpful as well. Key pick up & drop off is ~25 minutes away in Concan. We did not have cell service, but the wifi was strong and were able to communicate via that method. TV cable was not set up, so if you plan on watching something, bring a firestick. It’s not a fancy place, but overall it fit our needs for the weekend and worked out perfectly. The access to the Frio is solid."

July, 2023 - "This property has river access and had water when parts of the river didn’t for floating. Very nice to be able to walk out and go get cooled off in the river. Beautiful scenery! House works perfect if you have quite a few teens with you. They had their own area in the bunk house with plenty of beds and space. Would stay again."

July, 2023 - "Our 3rd year in a row! We truly love it here."

June, 2023 - "We didn’t even float, we loved playing games and floating around the house too much!"

July, 2022 - "This place is magical! We enjoyed it so much last year and this year was even better because we had time to stay longer. The water is definitely there, and my grandkids literally spent every minute they could in it, going between the paddle boat and the rope swing. The canopy of trees across the riverfront area means that it’s always cool on the banks, even when the temperature is hitting triple digits. We spent a lot of time relaxing in our comfy chairs down by the water. The water is so pristine; cold and very clear. At night we enjoyed the lovely lights and made use of the fire ring to make s’mores. The house is spacious and comfortable, and the kids had fun staying in the bunkhouse. There were a few minor maintenance issues that were handled in a timely manner by the staff. The management is always friendly, cordial & polite. This year we ventured out to nearby Garner State Park for the nightly dance. So fun! Even if you don’t dance it’s a great time listening to Texas Country music on their sound system. We already have our time reserved for next year!"

July, 2022 - "This house was perfect for us to being all of our grown kids and our grands to spend the week together. We had all ages entertained and engaged and not stuck in their phones. A couple of ceiling fans on the back deck as well as in the bunkhouse and bedrooms would not go amiss. We had to go and buy some box fans to really get the air moving in the bunkhouse. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay."

April, 2022 - "The house was nice a had plenty of space for all the family. The kids enjoyed the huge back yard and the river as well. They were in the water the moment they woke up. Great time and definitely a must next chance we get."

September, 2021 - "The house could use some updating, but it was clean and comfortable and met our needs. The river area is spectacular! They have a large private riverfront area, and we enjoyed swimming, paddle boating, and fishing. There are beautiful lights there at night by the water, and we made ample use of the fire pit down there for nightly s’mores. There’s a volleyball net, horse shoes, a rope swing, and a bean bag tossing game. But we were all too enchanted with the river to do those activities. I’ve already reserved the place for several days next summer!"

"The river tight outback was amazing and we truly enjoyed playing horseshoes. Our family had a nice vacation. Love pet friendly Vaction homes!"

"We could not have picked a better place for our 10 year anniversary. Peaceful, surrounded by nature. It was what our souls required before we head back I to the mission field in Mexico. Thank you."

" The house was clean and beds were comfortable. The kitchen had all we needed. As we stayed in the winter, we didn't get in the water but used the kayak provided to paddle around. The listing indicates the property extends past the other side of the river. However, we could not find a way to access this short of swimming across the river. Just a heads up if you are expecting to use the whole property."

" Great backyard with access to water. Enjoyed the stay. Awesome backyard with access to clear water of the Frio. Built a fire and did smores by the water and hung out with good lighting at night. Leakey not far to drive to float the river." Thomas I

"Enjoyed the stay. Awesome backyard with access to clear water of the Frio. Built a fire and did smores by the water and hung out with good lighting at night. Leakey not far to drive to float the river."

"We enjoyed the property, especially the river and beautiful yard with volleyball, etc. There were plenty of picnic tables and lounge chairs. The house has a great layout had more storage for our groceries and other items than we've ever had before in a rental. But the utensil and large pots and pans were sparse. They brought us some new ones on Thursday so the good news is that if you tell call Frio Fun, they will respond quickly. When we first reserved the property the listing said the main bedrooms had 2 Full size beds and 1 Queen size bed. But we were pleased to find a Queen in each room. Yet the linen package we purchased didn't include any fitted sheets so that was a challenge. The bunks in the bunk house were really high so we were afraid to let the youngest, our 8 yr old, sleep on a top bunk even though he wanted to. Also the shower curtain in the bunk house bathroom was not long enough so water came out on the floor every time someone showered. And then we had the commode issue in the bunk house. That was a 24 hour inconvenience, especially since it encompassed a night. But once we reported it was repaired as quickly as possible. We appreciated that. We have plenty of experience with vacation rentals so know there are always issues. But our group said they wanted to come back to this property again and that's a first. Unfortunately we alternate between the Frio and the beach so will not get back to the Frio until 2021. But hopefully I can secure Swimming Hole as soon as you open the July 2021 calendar next summer."
