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."
