"Perfect little getaway!
We recently stayed at Players Place for a couple of nights with a couple other families, and enjoyed every minute. The property is exactly as described, and the addition of beautiful weather let us enjoy the outdoor space to the fullest. Management was very responsive if we ever had any questions. We have already talked about coming up some time in summer months."
Mar 16, 2023 - Lindsey W., Friendswood, TX
"Great in the fall, probably even better in summer
It was great. Had 25 guests. I didn't realize until arrival that "sleeps 26" means everyone would need to share a bed. So I ended up with guys sleeping on couches and air mattresses but other than that no complaints at all! Would definitely come back with 10-18 people."
Nov 22, 2022 - Louie M., Austin, TX
We were 12 adults from 21 to 83. The many levels were hard for the two oldest to navigate but that has to be expected on hillside property. The kitchen is better equipped than mine at home! Beautiful weather allowed us to use the large porches to relax and visit. Cable TV allowed us to watch the Astro clench the playoffs!!"

"The Best Place To Stay
This house was awesome and accommodated all of our needs! Very clean and right on the river. Best place we have ever stayed on the river! "
Aug 22, 2022 - , Rio Vista, TX
Our group has been coming to the Guadalupe River for almost 20 years and only a few years ago did we come across this little gem. It is always clean, more than enough room for our crew that ranges anywhere from 16-20+ adults, it has great access to the river where we can either float the river to the house, or from the house with drop off and pick up help from Little Ponderosa - or simply sit your booty in the water right in the back! We couldn't ask for better location or accommodations and we will continue to come back to Players Place year after year "

"Big Family Vacay
This house was perfect! 22 family members all comfortably stayed here and had a blast. We are planing to go back next summer!"
Aug 01, 2022 - Mary N., Baytown, TX
"Great Family Vacation
We had a total of 16 people. Me and my 4 kids + spouses and grandchildren. This was by far one of the better homes on the river that accommodated all of us. The massive bunk room was perfect for the 8 grandkids. The river access was easily accessible which has been an issue at prior rentals. They had 2 refrigerators which was nice for all our drinks/food. 10 out of 10 would recommend for large family vacations."

"Great Location And Beautiful Home
This home has all you need for the perfect getaway.
We had plenty of room and the view is stunning.

"Great place for a big family
This vacation home was perfect for a big family. The kids fished and played in the yard and there was plenty of room for the adults to sit by the fire and catch up. Our only real complaint is there were not enough trash bags. We would stay again in the future for sure. "
Nov 09, 2021 - Lisa B., Austin, TX
We had a wonderful getaways from Houston and Dallas reuniting 4 families. There was plenty of room for 10 kids and 8 adults. We spent lots of time on the river with the kayak, canoe and also brought a SUP paddle board. In the evenings we spent time around the fire pit on the deck. Such a fantastic place to unwind. My only critiques would be the bunk beds in the bunk room were very loud and creaky and seemed rickety. Need tightening. (So the kids didn’t sleep well) Overall rate this trip as one we’ll likely do again sometime! "
Oct 26, 2021 - Lauren V., Humble, TX
"Hill country weekend
Overall, the place was wonderful. Convenient to town and the view was beautiful. Only a few minor things to take note of. Bunk beds were not 100% safe. Bars and steps missing which made it unsafe to sleep on top. Chairs outside were in need if replacement as they were hanging on by threads. The downstairs AC didn't seem to keeping it cool but could be due to all the windows. Other than that, the house was nice, location, great and the view and wildlife experience was a plus. Our group had a great relaxing weekend. "
Sep 29, 2021 - ELAINE S., Hankamer , TX
We love this property and it's location on the River. We've now stayed here with 4 couples, twice, and we plan to do so again! Great rental and excellent service when we did experience a small issue in the kitchen. Thank you!"
Jul 14, 2021 - Jennifer M., CYPRESS, TX
We had a great time with our family and the location was very private. The home was roomy, but not very clean. It appeared to be at first glance, but our toddlers were barefooted and crawling around on floor so their feet and knees were filthy in a matter of minutes! The windows had smudges so thick you couldn’t see out of them. Outlet covers were loose and hanging away from walls so we were very nervous about letting children be near them!
The management company was great to work with.
There were so many rules posted that it made us quite uncomfortable. Like we couldn’t relax because we thought we’d break a rule."

"Everything you need!
We didn’t have to go anywhere else! The house had everything we needed to have the best time! Everything was amazing! The views, the kitchen, the rooms! Such an amazing trip! We’ve shared the home with everyone we know hoping someone else gets to enjoy it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
Jun 12, 2021 - Amber M., Dayton, TX
It was a peaceful and relaxing vacation. I would certainly visit again."

We rented this property for our very first Christmas in June with our Children and grandchildren. The house is beautiful and the location is wonderful. The property managers were amazing. They made our first rental of a vacation home easy and were so helpful and friendly!"

The house was beautiful and spacious. Would definitely recommend. "

We made alot of great memories with family and friends. Had the best time and the house was so perfect that we would consider staying there another time.. "

"Too Many Rules for the Condition of the Property
We rented this home to have a surprise 50th Bday dinner for my stepmom.The property itself (outside) is beautiful, the construction of the house, the gazebo, and the river in the back is amazing.The house on this inside is another story. First of all there is only 2 1/2 baths in the house. A 1/2 bath downstairs, 1 full bath upstairs for 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath in 1 upstairs bedroom (master, which wasn't a masters). Oh the 3rd bathroom is outside, you can not access it from the home. The home itself was dirty. The kitchen faucet leaked everywhere, the knives that were in the chopping block were dirty, there was dead roaches and dirty bedding. The shower curtain was disgusting with black mold on the outside corners and stains along the bottom of the liner. Washer did not work and the dryer (there is 2) didn't work either. There is a lot of rules which is fine (basic etiquette and a few threats with if you do this you will be charged an additional fee) but the home was not all that. The bedroom with the bunkbed is an old garage that is not sealed properly and was freezing for our kids. There was 2 heaters that didn't heat, we had to go purchase one just so our kids could sleep more comfortable.The bedding was dusty and dirty. The other beds in the other 4 rooms were squeaky and uncomfortable. The property manager Amanda was very attentive and the next day she did bring out a new heater and clean blankets (I sent her pictures of the dirty ones) and also gave a 15% discount. She offered to send the cleaning crew but we declined, we cleaned it ourselves. "

"Family reunion with 11 adults
This was a perfect location for our family reunion. The large round dining table was great for meals and lots of visiting. The outdoor grill was perfect for our grilling night, and it was a wonderful area to hang out in. The home has lovely views from inside and great porches all around! We will come back again!"
Oct 11, 2019 - , Austin, TX
"The players palace was awesome!
The pictures online did not do it justice! This place was amazing! It slept 22 people perfectly and it is right on the river so you’re able to just go straight down the hill and jump in! I highly recommend this place for any large group get together. "
Oct 01, 2019 - Phillip C., Jefferson, TX
"rural route river rat
It was a beautiful place to stay we as a whole enjoyed every minute of our stay. The bunk room could use a better a/c and perhaps more comfortable bunk beds, as we were all adults in our 50,s, but all in all it was a great weekend and we plan on returning next year. "
Aug 27, 2019 - Michael R., judson, TX
"Great place for family reunion
Great place for a family gathering! Plenty of room for sleeping, relaxing, meal prep and enjoying the beautiful river. Our family loved that kayaks, canoes and tubes were provided for our use. And the cookout pavilion with its fire pit is great too! Plenty of well-maintained backyard for the kids to play safely. Hope to return w family some day. "

"Great Place for large group!!!
We rented this beautiful property for a lil family reunion! It was the perfect place. Close to rental for tubes, great landscaping, lots of shade, a great outdoor cooking area and right off the river!!!! This place is great!!! "

"Great getaway for a large family
Everything about Player's Place was wonderful. The location, the quietness, the facilities..."
Jul 03, 2019 - Michael B., Orange, TX
Home was beautiful yard very shady and inviting. Every thing was clean and exactly as represented in the pictures. Well stocked kitchen and linens. There was an issue with the smoke detector going off but maintenance took care of in a timely manner.
Management company was not overly helpful when I tried to view the property before renting. I had to make several attempts to do so. They offered a small savings if I was willing to rent in someone else’s name to rent direct from them nor VRBO. I felt that was unprofessional. The fact I was told it was possible the propane tank in the grill might run out and if it did I would have to pay to refill it or bring my own from home. Paying almost $1000 per night a extra tank should be at the property. I did not like driving several hours from home with propane tank in my car "

"The most perfect weekend getaway imaginable!!
We rented this absolutely beautiful riverfront home for a combination Mother's Day and 50th Anniversary celebration for my wife's parents. We had 19 people in all, including grandparents down to the grandchildren in the home and it was so perfect, we all want to make this an annual tradition for Mother's Day! This is an absolutely dreamy property! So peaceful, so beautiful, just what the soul needs to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life! I personally loved having my morning tea down by the crystal clear waters of the Guadalupe River (which I've been visiting since I was a child) and just listening to the birds, watching the deer graze across the way, and gobbling back and forth with the male turkey that hung out with us all weekend across the river. We also checked off a bucket-list item for several of us by getting to watch a ring-tailed cat race up and down the trees like a curious new friend. Such a great experience, all around! This house is laid out perfect for large groups, everyone had a comfortable bed, and the kids LOVED having their own bunkhouse to stay up and party until 2 am together! :-) . Cannot recommend this home highly enough!"
May 18, 2019 - Clint H., Round Rock, TX
"Way Beyond our Expectations!!!!!
It was amazing!!!! It was beautiful,, clean, FULLY stocked with high quality everything. It is as big as it looks in the pictures, or even more roomy. We has 14 people stay so comfortably. The office staff was so helpful and the check in and out process was so easy!! The yard/waterfront is beautiful, even better than the pictures. The exterior bath is brand new and so nice!!! The pavilion and fire pit were great! We used the pavilion as a proposal site and it was absolutely perfect!!! Could not have asked for a more perfect place to stay!! I am pretty picky and I would highly recommend this place. We are already trying to find a good reason to go back!!!"

"Very nice Lake House!
We had a really nice stay over spring break. The property was clean and has a breathtaking view of the lake. The kayaks/canoe that was on the property was an added bonus plus the gazebo with a very nice firepit. Overall, it was a great stay."
Apr 11, 2019 - Irene B., CEDAR PARK, TX
This house was perfect for our needs. The pictures honestly do not do the house justice. It is much more spacious than we expected and it worked very well for our large group. "
Oct 06, 2018 - JACOB M J., Mansfield, TX
Dirty, dirty, dirty. Rodent poop everywhere! Beds in the garage...really??? Dusty, old bed linens, place needs a major makeover. The most expensive 11 hours of my life. I could've stayed at the Four Seasons and it would've been a **** of a lot cleaner. Total rip off!! Don't do it!!!"

"NOT AS ADVERTISED
This is a FOUR bedroom house advertised as a SIX bedroom house. DO NOT BE FOOLED. They will nickel and dime you to death with fees. Upon arrival the septic system began to flood the side yard and the stench was terrible. Located all over the house are lovely passive-aggressive notes from the owners. It was actually pretty funny. THEY HAVE NO TRASH SERVICE TO EMPTY THE DUMPSTER!!! Seriously? I was charged an extra $50 because the lady "had to jump in the dumpster and bag trash". Seriously, pay for a trash pick up service. You charge enough for this FOUR BEDROOM house to afford it. I cant believe I spent over $2,000 to rent a FOUR BEDROOM house for two nights. The house itself is beautiful and the location is great, but it is not what they say it is. When I spoke with management the told me that "in the real estate world anywhere someone can sleep is considered a bedroom." "In the real estate world"?? What world is that?? Guess what: Texas law says that a bedroom needs two exits, a closet or wardrobe, and a door for privacy. They consider a futon in a hallway and a garage to be bedrooms. Buyer beware. "
Aug 17, 2018 - , vail, CO
This house is very roomy and we loved how it sat right on the river. New Braunfels Escapes were fabulous to work with. The game room was pretty hot when we got there but cooled off over night. The house could use some fans in every room for the hot Texas summers. This rental would be even better if the owner fixed her up a bit but over all we loved our stay. Little Ponderous Outfitters is a great outfitter for your floating needs and is right down the road from the house. We would stay here again for sure. "

"Owner needs to have internet and tv's working
Owner needs to spend the money to have internet, working tv's, clean pots and pans, pillows with no stains, and basic updates.
Amanda with New Braunfels Escapes was great and tried to help us fix the Tv situation but we had only 1 channel with interrupted service. Not what you would expect for $650-$700 a night. "

"Great weekend retreat!
Beautiful home! Plenty of room for the 17 people in our party. The river is beautiful! Everything was in very good shape, and very clean. Kitchen pots and pans were new, the smoker/grill down by the river was a great place to cook out and watch the children play in the river. The river has a slow moving current, and gnerally not deeper than about 4’. The kids had a great time playing in the water! Overall great experience!"

"We stayed here Memorial Weekend. This house is awesome - very clean, great layout and had plenty of room for our group of 15! No one had to sleep.in any of the common areas! River access is beautiful. Loved the covered patio right by the water! We hung out there every night, cooked and relaxed. We will definitely be back."

This was a great rental property with an excellent location. The house was clean and comfortable and the extra game room with bunk beds really came in handy. I don't think the pictures do this house justice. I was really impressed with the overall appearance of the house and the property. The only negative thing I can say about the property is that the little notes/rules through out the house from the owner were pretty annoying. "
