Maria Halbrook purchased this house in 1989

Why Maria Halbrook chose Gruene

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We had the best time at this location. The yard is beautiful and we really enjoyed the firepit and fishing off the dock. There was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen is well stocked, even had two coffe makers! Very convenient location. I enjoyed watching the deer come to feed and even fireflies at nite! Maria is very easy to work with. She even allowed us to change our weekend to accomodate some health issues. I would definitely recommend her house for a great vacation location!

Another Outstanding Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time to stay at the house and once again everyone had an outstanding time for our week long stay. Once again, the house offered all of the amenities that we were looking for and is very well maintained and was very clean upon our arrival. Communication with Maria, the owner, was excellent and she answered all of our questions and made sure that we were all satisifed during and after our weeks stay.The close proximity to Gruene and all of its activities is another huge factor why this house should be consider. I would highly recommend this house for rental as you will not be dissappointed.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time here! The house was beautiful and just as advertised. Maria was very helpful ahead of time, answering our multiple questions by email. We had 22 people aged 18 months to 65 years, and there was room for everyone comfortably. Highly recommend!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
The house was in a wonderful location and the yard was fantastic!! We had 6 families (18) of us in all including the children. Ages 76 to 4 months, and all loved the accommodations. The property was even prettier than the pictures. We are all planning on returning next year and have already recommended the property to other families. Maria was wonderful and we will be calling her again to reserve next year!!

Relaxing River Views

  • 4 of 5
The location of the home was, fabulous, right on the river. The listing photos accurately reflect the listings appearance which is quite charming. The amenities exceeded my expectations especially in the beautiful & well maintained backyard; seating, facilities, a dock w/ access to kayaks, and view of the riverfront. The kitchen was well equipped, which made it easy to prepare meals. Although the property is very private, there is a nice shopping center nearby for groceries w/ an HEB, etc. Also, the washer and dryers were quite handy. The property was well maintained and clean. The owner was very helpful and easy to contact before and during our stay, & very accommodating. I would recommend the property to a friend or relative, it is especially suited for large groups. We floated both rivers, went to the outlet mall, drove the River Road, in Gruene we enjoyed gift shopping, ate at the Grist Mill & danced at Gruene Hall. We did some specialty shopping in New Braunfels at Naegelin's Bakery & Granzin's meat market, we had dinner at Pat's Place, loved it. One day we took a field trip to Lockhart, the BBQ capital of Texas to sample the eats, well worth the hill country drive. Above all, our favorite thing to do was to sit on the porch in the back yard, enjoy the breeze and just watch the river!

Perfect place for extended family for a Gruene wedding!

  • 5 of 5
My niece was married over the Memorial Day weekend at Gruene Estate. This was a destination wedding as most of us are in Southeast TX and Southwest LA. We decided we all wanted to stay together and this house was perfect! Maria always promptly responded to inquiries and was very accommodating on our hosting a brunch at the house the day after the wedding for the bridal party, family and close friends. The lawn to the river was perfect for the brunch - everyone gasped as they walked down the drive and caught their first glimpse of the outdoor areas and the river. Maria really has found a little peace of heaven. The hand-off of the property went smoothly and Maria made certain we knew everything we needed to know for the stay. We had every bed filled and the house never seemed crowded. With the different levels, everyone slept soundly with no disturbances. I was shocked when I had to go into town or back to I-35 for some last minute errands. The area was packed for the holiday weekend but we never knew that at the house - it is quiet and peaceful and we were all able to relax and just enjoy our time together. I have raved about the house and how perfect it is to so many people since returning home and can't wait to get another group together for a trip to Gruene. Between wedding functions and not wanting to leave that incredible lawn and view, we didn't have a chance to explore Gruene proper, although the house was perfectly situated for that and is just 5 minutes from anything you would need. There are plenty of steps, but we had no problems with anyone navigating anything and our guests ranged in age from 1 to 87! The kayaks and canoe were perfect for the teenagers and more adventurous adults in the group. Plenty of food storage space in the fridge and cabinets and the kitchen was well-stocked for entertaining with platters, serving bowls, pitchers, etc. Highly recommend!
