Named for the gorgeous display of fireflies that grace the riverbank every summer and fall, this gorgeous four-bedroom home sits on 2700 square feet on the shores of the Blanco River! Surrounded by stunning views of nature at its best, Wimberley boasts a plethora of art galleries, markets, and artisan shops to explore when you’re not enjoying waterfront views.
The interiors of this spacious home are bright and modern, with rustic floors extending through the majority of the main living spaces. Large windows allow for river views and for plenty of natural light to fill the space, creating a comfortable and airy place to gather with your family. From the plush leather seating of the living room, the open floor plan extends to a gorgeous, state of the art kitchen. You’ll adore the deep blue color of the cabinetry, as well as the gourmet appliances available for your use.
This lovely riverside home offers four endearing bedrooms to choose from, each brightly colored and meticulously designed. The master bedroom features high, vaulted wooden ceilings and a plush, queen-sized bed. You’ll enjoy access to a private patio as well as a master bath with a gorgeous, mosaic-tiled shower. The next two guest bedrooms have a queen-sized bed and two twins respectively.

Needs more than 5 stars!
This river home was a blessing for my family.... First, the hosts are the best! Second, the home it is relaxing and beautifully decorated. Perfect layout. Third, the river.... gorgeous views, relaxing times with a chair in the water, and fun exploring. Finally, Wimberly... cute town with the best snow cones, best breakfast tacos, and two favorite restaurants (Pear and Pizza!) Firefly... we will definitely return one day!!”
Relaxing week by the river
The firefly is the perfect place for a relaxing get away with the kids. It is in the heart of the hill country with a lot to do and see in the area. The house has everything we needed and is well appointed and very comfortable. The hosts are friendly and accommodating. ”
Much more than we expected!
The photos of this home do not do it justice!! This was a renovated, well appointed home with great space for everyone. My family of 5 plus my in laws had plenty of room to rest and relax this summer. Also the river being right on the property was a huge plus. The home is just outside of town, but super close to the quaint little town of Wimberley, Blue Hole, Jacobs Well and more!! We day tripped to fishing holes and Fredericksburg. The host was very responsive and gave some great advice and insight on the local attractions, the area and the home. She was very accommodating. We would love to come back every year!!”
An amazing house and location!
Firefly is a little slice of heaven. The house is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect. The house is right on a crystal clear river and is only a 5 minute drive to town for dining and shopping. The hosts are great and very helpful. I couldn't think of one negative thing if I tried! We will return.”
Firefly was beautiful inside and out! Perfect location to Wimberley and surrounding areas! Highly recommend this home for peace and relaxation! Thanks to the owners Contessa and Matt!”
