About the property

A very special river front home that boast magnificent views of the Frio River!

Located just five minutes north of downtown Leakey, Texas, this private riverfront retreat is located on one of the deepest sections of the Frio River that makes for great swimming and fishing. This large acreage, riverfront property is old school Frio River at its finest.

Lots of room to roam since you'll have both sides of the Frio River for fun! There is a large flat, grassy lawn and the house sits just steps from the rivers edge. A concrete riverside landing and there's a rope swing to drop into the deepest section of the Frio River!

Massive old growth cypress trees line the cool Frio where swimmers drop into deep emerald green water from two rope swings. There is also a concrete boat launch, metal ladder and concrete steps that lead directly into the river. Lots of fish so bring your fishing poles!

There is a sunny covered back porch for relaxing, with outdoor seating & dining to enjoy a sunrise cup of coffee or sunset cocktails. A custom charcoal smoker in the backyard allows the grill master to join the river views. The outdoor entertainment area includes a fire pit, horseshoes, washers, corn hole and riverside volleyball court, sure fun for everyone.

The dramatic river views from this one level, relaxing retreat is filled with comfortable furnishings. Plenty of windows offer a light filled oasis perfect for gathering everyone to make great memories.

The original riverfront cabin has now been renovated for summer 2020. A deck overlooks the beautiful river, while inside this hideaway has (2) double over double bunks beds that sleep 8. Nostalgia and old fashion camping memorabilia decorate the walls, original wood floors and plenty of space make this an ideal bunkhouse.

In the house you'll find a retro kitchen that has cedar cabinets and adjoins the dining room that looks out over the river. There is plenty of seating on the back porch overlooking the river and another picnic table near the river under the canopy of a huge cypress tree. The living room has a flat screen tv and plush soft sofas.

After all day playing in the Frio, head to the party room, with a pool table that also converts into a ping pong table. There's also a washer/dryer. Open the doors to see the mountain views to the front.

Recharge in one of the four (4) bedrooms, which includes a bunk room that you'll love having your personal view of the Frio River. The master bedroom and bedroom 2 have river views, while the 3rd & 4th bedrooms over look the mountain range.

Outside Fun - Pool table, ping pong, volleyball, tetherball, horseshoes, corn hole, tree swing, fire pit & poolside camp fire for lots of fun.

For those seeking a fun, relaxing riverfront home, get ready to enjoy Sparkling Frio!

GREAT GET-AWAY FOR FLOATING THE FRIO RIVER!

Reviews

"I love the place but the weather was bad for us. The water of the river is really cold so we didn't enjoy swimming in the river. But I will like to go back with better weather."

"We booked the sparkling Frio for my 40th birthday and had extended family come for 4 nights. What a beautiful property on the Frio! Everyone had a blast BBQing, kayaking, playing pool and swimming. Very relaxing. I set up my easel and enjoyed painting the lily pads and trees along the river. We are looking forward to returning!!"

"Overall this was a nice place for our family to stay this year. It would not have been a good place for us if my 100 year old mother-in-law had come as she has every year before. She could not come with us due to Covid 19. She is in a wheelchair and we had picked this house because somewhere it was listed as handicapped friendly. It a good thing she couldn’t come because the house had steps to get in (no ramp) and there would have been no way for her to get down to the river. If this house was handicapped friendly we would certainly want to go back there next year if she can come with us then. (She is in good health and plans to live to 106) The management was quite responsive to our needs. The toilet seat needed to be replaced and they did it right away on a Sunday. The kids enjoyed swimming. We all enjoyed the rope swing, fire pit, tetherball and grill. Thank you."

" Great weekend with the family! We had a wonderful time. The beautiful backyard and river access were just what we needed."

" Sparkling Frio 2019. This was our 5th summer staying at the Sparkling Frio and while the newest management company, it’s been different every time, was by far the best to work with, we were sad to see that the neighboring properties are now rentals. One of the biggest selling points for us, aside from the water access, was the quiet seclusion of the property. I will say that when addresses with management they were more than attentive to concerns and willing to do what was necessary to ensure a quiet stay. Their communication throughout the process and the consistent condition of the house will keep us coming back. Thank you Sparkling Frio for another year of memories." Judith W

" Amazing! Wonderful stay! My 13 year old said this was the best vacation ever and didn’t want to leave! Great house , beautiful property, perfect for swimming, the Rope swing was so much fun , we will be back! It has everything you will need!" Melissa O

" Leakey ‘s family vacation. We took our children and grandchildren to Leakey Tx for our summer vacation. We had a wonderful time, floating, swimming and the grandchildren loved the rope swing and paddle boat! The backyard was a delight, so pretty and near the river! The lights in the trees and by the river was awesome at night! The house has everything you needed! We plan on coming back next year!" Susan P

" Nice home on the river. The backyard is amazing. Peaceful deck and river access. Perfect home if you have kids. Pool table and ping pong, rope swing into the river and tether ball."

"Sparkling Frio Fun! We had a wonderful Holiday weekend! The swimming hole is absolutely perfect for all ages and we loved how private and secluded the area is! The rest of the river was low, but this area provided all day fun in a beautiful setting!"


"Great property. Place was very nice and secluded, although being on a highway. It’s also a few miles north of town, which made it a lot further out than where we’re used to staying in the past. The backyard is a nice swimming hole, but it did not appear to be a drop in the river and float from the house spot. House is great, would consider staying there again, just wish it was closer to Concan."
