About the property

Spanish for Beautiful Water, this home has an awesome waterfall pool, tropical landscape, large white rock pool patio and walk to river!

Agua Bonita is a very special place. Nestled along River Road in the very heart of Concan, where the Frio River meets Shut-In Creek, this stunning retreat is in a perfect location for all things Frio. Agua Bonita consistently receives 5 star reviews, all before the new, 2019 guest house and poolside Cabana were built!

Pretty Agua Bonita is a perfect vacation home to unwind. A house sleeps 16, and has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. The main house has 3 large bedrooms and 3 large baths, while the romantic, poolside Guest House has a spacious bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Poolside

Discover the beauty of the outside entertainment area, which offers bliss and relaxation! Venture into the aqua blue, deep water swimming pool with raised edge seating of white flagstone around the pool. At the deep end stands a tall white rock wall with a wide arching waterfall falling into the pool.

With over 2,000 square feet of white rock flagstone patio decking, theres freedom to vacation outside to the fullest! The custom seating around the pool can hold up to 50 people. Underwater there are 2 rock benches to relax in the pool and a wide arching waterfall you can swim underneath.

Cabana

Enjoy the new, 2019 custom built poolside Cabana, with white rock columns, large white rock flagstone decking, double fans, mood lighting and 30' vaulted ceiling just steps from the pool.

Everywhere you relax, your family will love being at the cabana, eating at on the outdoor dining tables or sunning on the chaise lounge chairs. Watch a poolside movie or listen to a baseball game on either of the (2) outdoor sound systems.

Outdoor Shower

Tucked underneath the old cedar tree growing up through the rock patio, you'll find a outdoor shower surrounded by tropical hanging plants & rustic cedar fencing. There are lots of hooks on the walls for wet swimsuits, a mirror and tree stump to hold your soap that gives this hideaway a very bohemian vibe.

Outside Entertainment Area

Admire the winding rock pathways of this beautiful country estate. The night time ambience comes from the solar lighting of the tropical palm trees, fuchsia colored bougainvillea and giant elephant all surrounding the rattan and Tahitian cotton outdoor sofa.

The entire backyard is high fenced for complete privacy, with distant mountain views. There is also a large fire pit for night time s'mores and star gazing. Wind along the stone pathways that lead from the house to the pool to guest house and fire pit to enjoy the outdoor life barefoot & carefree.

The patio seating areas have multiple dining tables with shade umbrellas. After a swim, lay out in the sun on any number of zero gravity lounge chairs. There is also a great charcoal smoker for barbecue, while poolside al fresco dining during the day or at night is outstanding! Agua Bonita is one of the few houses in Concan with a soft green grass back yard.

Lush landscaping makes this an extraordinary entertainment experience. This is a very special place for all your family & friends to really enjoy a sophisticated outdoor experience.

Main House

Step inside the main house and you immediately find tranquility the moment you walk in the front door. Plush leather sofas, flat screen smart tv, canter stone fireplace and cool, stained concrete floors makes you want to stay a while.

There's a large custom dining room table off the kitchen that is a perfect open concept living area, with custom cabinets, thick wood counters and pretty Mexican tile mural. Don't worry, there's WiFi to keep y'all connected.

Kitchen

The kitchen is filled with plenty of pots, pans and utensils to cook fabulous meals. There's a dedicated pantry, with a second large stainless refrigerator in separate utility room. The dining room has a custom made table, chairs and bench, with a buffet to hold all your food.

Another set of French doors leads from the dining room to the backyard, where you'll find another outside dining area. The master and second bedroom both have French doors leading outside to the beautiful backyard oasis, with white rock patio up to the doors.

Master Bedroom

Wake each morning to sunlight streaming through the French door windows and the smell of tropical flowers just outside the Master Bedroom. Step outside onto the white rock terrace to survey the morning sunrise then return to your private oasis filled with upscale furnishings. This is the place you are meant to retreat from the world.

French doors lead directly poolside while you can listen to the waterfall with the pool is just a few steps from your bed. The master bathroom has a huge walk-in white stone shower with 3 shower heads, bench seating and a rain shower head in the middle. Double Mexican tile sinks with pretty hammered mirrors and Mexican tile make this a great master bath.

Bedroom 2

The second bedroom has a custom made queen bed, 2 sets of bunk beds, flatscreen tv, leather sofa and French doors that lead out to the pool. Listen to the waterfall while laying in bed or watch the waterfall cascade down and splash into the pool.

The pool is just a few steps from your bed and the white flagstone patio makes the walk easy on your feet. Next to the bedroom is a very large, spacious main bath with double sinks, white tile shower/bath and plenty of storage.

Bedroom 3

The third bedroom is a large, cool bunk room for y'all to hang out, with French doors leading directly outside. You'll find 2 twin beds and 2 sets of twin bunkbeds. A new a/c mini split ensures the room is icy cold. Next to the bunk room is a beautiful, new white tile bathroom, white river rock shower floor, sitting bench and a pedestal sink.

Guest House

Sip a latte from the private guest terrace overlooking the pool from your chaise chairs that overlook the pool waterfall. The view from your bed is sure to delight, watching the skyline turn midnight blue at night, reflecting the aqua marine pool that beckons to you for a midnight dip.

The exquisite, new 1 bedroom & 1 bath guest house directly overlooks the pool waterfall and sits at the end of a white rock pathway. The exterior is white rock, with plantation shutters and French doors that make this cottage sublime. Set back far enough away from the Cabana for privacy, yet moments to the pool, cabana and main house of the property.

Inside you'll find a spacious, upscale hideaway that is both luxurious and romantic. Art, woven textiles and antiques all blend seamlessly under the 12' vaulted ceiling, with wooden beam, 18th century styled Mexican wall sconces and cream stucco walls. The wall sconces amber lighting cast a romantic golden glow, while during the day the sea glass colored floor reflects the color of the pool.

Walk into the very large en suite bathroom and a long stone counter proudly holds double bronze vessel sinks and arching water faucets that instantly let you know this bathroom is exceptional.

The hand blown glass vases hold fresh flowers, while the heavy Mexican stone lamp with hand painted shade on the stone counter is exceptional artwork. The walk-in stone shower has a river rock floor and built-ins. Everything is upscale, private and beautiful.

Things to Do Outside

The front yard has a very large circular driveway, with plenty of room for all your cars, trucks, tubes and trailers. At night the exterior solar landscaping lights turn on for added ambience. For fun there is a horseshoe pit, tether ball, volley ball, bocce, darts and ring toss all overlooked by a quaint wooden swing under a tall oak tree. You'll find plenty of pool toys too.

We offer our guests linens and towels for an additional fee of $175, please order at least 14 days prior to arrival. This home can also be rented with next door Agave Point for a total of 33.

Agua Bonita is perfect for those seeking an over-the-top outdoor entertainment experience! The deep water pool, cascading waterfall, exceptional Cabana, rock bar, poolside movies, outdoor shower and private luxury guest house makes for a superb vacation. Agua Bonita is the vacation home everyone wants and only a few find.

Reviews

"Great house in a nice area. House was great with nice pool and relaxing areas. Relaxation areas are impressive. Pool area and outside bar area. Nice area for just hanging out or river trips. It rained a considerable amount and property owners were very helpful about road closures and information about the area. We were never stranded as we were on the high grounds with unobstructed exits. "

"Thank you so very much for a wonderful weekend! We LOVE Agua Bonita! " The Edgars

"We had 3 families staying in the house. We all loved the beautiful pool area. Thee was enough room for all of us. We weren’t bumping elbows at all. I wish there would have been more space to unpack a suitcase in the third bedroom. I prefer not to live out of the suitcase because you always have to pull out the suitcase and then put it away. I think there needs to be more storage in the third bathroom. Shelves in the bathroom would have been nice but we made everything work just fine. We would definitely stay at the house again." Julia C.

"Very impressive!" Mary C.

"We enjoyed our stay at Aqua Bonita. The house was equip with lots of games for our six grandkids. They had a blast in the swimming pool. It was nice having a grill and bar outside. Thank you for all your help and making this family vacation special for us." Lori J.

"This was a lovely spot to stay, especially with the river being low. While some of our group went to the river, the pool was an excellent second option for some of us. The set up is nice outside. I especially loved the multitude of seating areas. The only thing I would mention is there is not much water pressure in the guest bath but we were able to use another bathroom for showers. The house is close to everything but the landscape gives plenty of privacy, which was a priority for us. I would stay here again." Johanna R.

"Great stay, great outdoor space for families." Richard F.

"Fantastic stay!!! House was perfect for our needs. Outdoor area is heavenly. Will be back for sure."

"Perfect Home. Hope to rent the same one this summer!" Adam B.

"The process from start to finish couldn't have been easier. The owners were so kind and easy to communicate with throughout. This house was perfect for our large group for three nights. We were able to congregate around the large dining table, plenty of different tables and seating outside and surrounding the beautiful pool. Kind of a hassle to have to bring your own toilet paper,
soap, paper towels, etc. but overall a wonderful stay and experience. Note the linens and towels are also not included and cost $150." Brittany B. Conroe, TX
My Response - Brittany, Thank you for the kind words regarding our beautiful property. We will take your review and make sure that VRBO guests understand about the paper products. I'll also work on making the linens options more understood as an additional costs. Thank you! Nanette

"Absolutely wonderful!" Sandra W. Cypress, TX

"Great location and very comfortable home! The pool is amazing!" Stephanie P.


"Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Agua Bonita...especially the awesome pool! We were looking for a home away from home and we definitely found it here. The kids and grandkids are already planning next summer's trip back to Concan!"
My Response - Thank you for coming and look forward to having you next year!


"House was perfect for our needs. Outdoor area is heavenly. Will be back for sure." Larry W.
My Response - Larry, Thank you for your kind words and hope to have you again! Nanette
