Exactly as pictured!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit! It was he first vacation as a whole family since I was a little girl. We enjoyed the entire house! Due to the heat I'm sure that is the reason for the large amounts of bugs can't help that in the summer time. When the water was low was our favorite so the kiddos could play in the sand. The rooms are spacious and the showers worked great! The fire pit was used to roast marshmallows and pop popcorn we enjoyed every inch! My only complaint is that the AC didn't come off as powerful as we would have liked! It was hot so I understand it had s hard time with not a lot of insulation, but it cooled off late at night do sleeping was perfect! The water was where we were all day! Bring an easy up for sure since the cement gets super hot! Also water shoes are important as its rocky out in the water! Loved how mellow it was and we felt like we had the river to ourselves! We will def come back again! Pam is a dream to work with too! Great experience for our entire family!

Owner's Response: We are really glad you enjoyed it... Sorry about the a/c. When it's as hot as it is, the a/c has a hard time keeping up in the upstairs portion.

Great place with awesome view

  • 4 of 5

This property was such a nice change instead of staying in a hotel for the desert races....We wanted some place quiet away from town but with all the amenities of a home. We rented both the upstairs and downstairs properties for us and a few guests. Both the upstairs and downstairs had good size kitchens, bathrooms and living space! A/C works awesome. There was enough parking for everyone and the neighbors are lovely too! We took advantage of the BBQ and deck. The evenings were so nice just enjoying some time with friends and family sitting by the river! Parker is just across the bridge for shopping and dining. I highly recommend going to Lily's Mexican restaurant! Super Yummy and Clean! We will definitely be back! Ken and Morgan Olson

Wonderful River house!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in a vacation house rather than hotel, and man was I surprised. This was one of the best vacations I have been on. For my birthday this past July my friends and I decided to book a river home and out of all the pictures and reviews this one was the best house for us three couples. First of all it was once we arrived the house looked exactly like it does in the pictures (unlike some places). Once going inside the house was very clean and A/C kicked butt! After unloading the car we walk down to the water their are two sets of stairs so it is not wheelchair friendly unless you bring something to act as a ramp. Once down by the water it is very clear, and a beach front feel. The ground has a mixture of sand in some spots and rocks in some areas so water shoes are a must. Perfect to bring rafts and tie up to a rock/ dock and float. Definitely a great vacation rental and are already planning our stay for next year.

This is our 2nd trip and won't be our last! We had lots of young kids and it was perfect for them to jump off the dock, fish, swim... all the river fun you can think of. Thank you again!
