Set between 2 nature preserves on the San Jacinto Riverfront, this 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom vacation rental home offers proximity to downtown, the Galleria area, medical center, Washington Street area, and various beaches! The recently remodeled home boasts beautiful views of the river. With a wraparound deck, private hot tub, stone fire pit, foosball table, ping pong table, and ample river frontage, this waterfront house offers plenty to do on-site.

The space
Bedroom 1: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Queen Bed | Bedroom 3: 2 Twin-over-Twin Bunk Beds | Living Room: Pullout Couch

Open beam ceilings expand the living area, where comfortable seating invites you to relax. There, you can soak in the river view through the wall-to-wall windows, or catch a game on the flat-screen Smart TV.

Whip up some tasty treats in the fully equipped kitchen, where granite counters and stainless steel appliances will make any dish a success! When you're ready to eat, head over to the 10-person table to dine beside the panoramic view.

Beat the heat in the shaded lower level, which boasts a ping pong table, foosball table, and cornhole! There's plenty of seating outside, so you can watch boats pass by on the river. This home also offers a private hot tub as well as a fire pit for post-sunset activities!

Upstairs on the covered wraparound deck, take a seat with a book in hand while the group’s chef uses the charcoal grill to make a barbecue feast for the family. The deck rests 15 feet above water level, so the sparkling views during sunset and sunrise are truly spectacular.

End the day with an evening stroll along the Rio Villa Nature Trail before heading home for a peaceful night's sleep!

Where you’ll be

Houston, Texas, United States

Set only 23 miles from Houston, this riverfront home is the perfect place to get away from the bustle of city life. The house overlooks the Banana Bend Nature Preserve, which is home to a variety of wildlife you may be able to see from the deck!

This home is only 25 minutes from downtown Houston’s bustling nightlife and restaurant scene; 35 minutes to the galleria area, where you’ll find the best shopping and restaurants in all of Houston; 26 minutes to Washington Street - a trendy street with bars, beer gardens, and trendy restaurants; and even just 35 minutes from the medical center! From this hidden waterfront home, all of Houston’s greatest attractions are within reach!

Behind the home, Rio Villa Nature Trail features 215 heavily forested acres with a 1.1-mile nature trail, canoe launch and observation pier. Bring your fishing gear to cast a line right from the property or along the nature trail. The Riverside Inn Marina & Restaurant offers authentic food, and has a boat launch so you can get out on the water!

Spend a day on the beach at Magnolia Gardens Park 10 miles away, or visit Alexander Deussen Park 12 miles away to take a dip in Houston Lake. The latter park also has a fishing pier, hiking trails and its own boat ramp! Spend a relaxing day playing golf at the River Terrace Golf Course just 5 miles from the house.

When hunger strikes, enjoy a nice meal at any of the nearby restaurants, including Iguana Joes, Longhorn Steakhouse, Shogun Japanese Grill and Sushi Bar, or Olive Garden!

Take a step into the past when you tour San Jacinto State Historic Site to learn about Texas's independence from Mexico. Nearby, the Battleship Texas State Historic Site preserves the USS Texas battleship, which you can walk through and learn about its role in a number of important naval battles.
