Wonderful stay

5.0 Stayed 2 days ending in October, 2022
Cecilia G. from Houston , Texas

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Emerald @ Frio River Vacation Rentals. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the property and plenty of wildlife that we saw. We would definitely stay here again.

Annual Frio Visitors- Emerald Review

4.0 Stayed 4 days ending in September, 2022
from Iola , Texas

The house seemed clean upon arrival but it absolutely needed a DEEP clean. Some things were broken but it didn’t bother me much. For example, the toilet paper holder was broken and half missing and some sliding doors were not on the tracks but like I said, it didnt effect my stay. I was happy there is parking next to the river access so that you don’t have to walk from your house. There was a lack of lighting out by the pool/fire pit so the kids couldn’t stay quite as long in the pool as they would have liked. Customer service was great. Super nice house. Overall I would recommend and/or book here again.
