About Maria Halbrook

My name is Maria. I am originally from Lisbon, Portugal. I moved to the United States in 1980. I moved to New Braunfels in 1989 and began a Bed and Breakfast. I have recently converted the B&B into a cozy, quaint vacation rental home.

Maria Halbrook purchased this house in 1989

Why Maria Halbrook chose Gruene

Breath-taking yard with an amazing view and access to the Guadalupe river. You are able to swim, fish or canoe any time. Proximity from downtown New Braunfels is within 5 miles and we are located 1 mile from historic Gruene, TX.

Huge pecan trees and cypress trees provide marvelous cool shade in the Summer.Abundance of birds, turtles, fish, deer, ducks, etc..

What makes this house unique

By taking the kayaks or canoe up river you have access to white water rapids, and by floating downstream you will quickly find yourself amidst historic Gruene, TX, Many adventures to be found. Plenty of wild life watching awaits. Abounding number of deer, turtles, birds, fish and more.

Great Family Destination

  • 5 of 5

The home has everything you need and lots of space for a large group. The river setting is beautiful and the back yard is well configured for visiting with friends and family.

The owner, Maria, was a pleasure to meet.

Spring Break Family Trip 2015

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite place to spend spring break. We have a large family and everyone can have their own beautifully decorated bedroom. The house is amazing and the kids love to play hide and seek. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. OMG!!! The back yard is over the top. There are so many areas and it has all been redone. We love the fishing dock, canoe, and kayaks. We made a fire every night in the fire pit and roasted marshmallows. We are building memories with our children and grandchildren and this is the perfect place. We look forward to going back next year. Maria is so helpful and makes sure you enjoy your stay . I highly recommend that you check it out! You will not be disappointed.

Spring Break Family Trip 2015

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here a few times now. We love this place. There are around 20 of us in our group and there is so much space. It's so close to Gruene Hall, river rentals, restaurants and it's right on the river!!! We really love the fire pit and kayaks. The owner is very helpful! We'll be back for sure.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The house is really spacious with plenty of rooms. There were twenty two people in our group, and there was more than enough space for everyone to be comfortable. The fire pit in the yard is really enjoyable, and the view of the river is spectacular. Outstanding location, as it is minutes to Gruene and New Braunfels. Maria is a very nice owner, who is very accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend this place.

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 River Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family group for a college graduation weekend at this perfect river getaway in Gruene. The house accommodated everyone wonderfully--spacious and comfortable both inside and out with gorgeous views! The setting was so relaxing with beautiful Cypress trees, expansive lawn and rolling river. It was so relaxing to sit on the porch watching the hummingbirds, cardinals and baby ducks. Kids both young and old enjoyed the water activities: canoeing, kayaking and fishing. In addition, there was S'more making by the fire ring, horse shoes and plenty of board games for inside evening fun. The house was a short car ride away from downtown Gruene for shopping, entertainment and eating excursions. Our host, Maria, was so easy to work with prior to our trip through follow-up after we got home. We'd love to come back for a summer vacation!
