5 Top Vacation Rentals with Water Slides or Pools
Everyone needs a water slide or a sparkling pool on vacation! Discover the ultimate vacation rentals with water slides in Orlando and around the country.
A pool with a water slide is the ultimate amenity to make a vacation rental extra special. It’s fun for all ages and keeps kids entertained. On the practical side, vacation rentals with water slides can save you some cash on water park tickets — and there’s no waiting in line for your turn.
In the spirit of letting it slide, Villatel has rounded up some of the best vacation rentals with water slides across the U.S., from splash pads to your own private water park.
1. Red Sands Ranch, Mason, Texas
On a 5,000-square-foot estate, this family-friendly, private resort rental proves everything really is bigger in Texas — starting with a 140-foot, four-story water slide sloping down into a 53-foot pool with a spa and grotto.
It’s pretty much your own private water park. Then again, this private resort is above-average on all fronts, including the base price tag averaging $2,112 per night and it goes upwards from there. It can sleep 12 to 37 guests and is only available as a buy-out property — meaning it’s just you and your fam.
If you’re looking for thrills beyond the massive water slide, there is a half-mile stretch of fast-flowing river rapids for kayaking or tubing if you know what you’re doing.Otherwise stick to floating in the pool!
With views of red sandstone cliffs and the clear Llano River, this uber luxurious haven has a 3,000-foot airstrip if you’re arriving by plane, a fitness center, and a game room, along with full-size basketball and pickleball courts, among other amenities.
Here’s to making a big splash in Texas!
