Newly remodeled Texas Hill Country Retreat allows you the possibility of 'leaving it all behind', as you enjoy the wildlife and nature trails. This complex is unique in that it is off the beaten path, yet minutes from everything! All new beds allow for restful relaxation after your day's activities.
Should you prefer the active lifestyle: the Comal and Guadelupe Rivers are just minutes away, and provide rafting opportunities year round. For that baby-back rib dinner: the Gristmill in Gruene, TX is a great place for dining, also only a 5-7 minute drive. Schlitterbahn WaterPark, the #1 rated water park in the USA by Good Morning America, is only a 10 minute drive away. The McKenna Children's Museum located downtown on San Antonio Street and will provide hours of fun and memories for you and your kids.
Should this be an adult weekend: you will find great restaurants as well as dancing at the Gruene Hall (the oldest dance hall in Texas) in Gruene, Texas. Famous musicians frequent this arena, so check the calendar for specific appearances. The many golf courses and wineries provide great variety for any one choosing this area to vacation or just to get away for a quick weekend!

Our Winter Texans stayed for 2 & 1/2 months, leaving the middle of March, 2010. They were very pleased with the amenities, expecially our Texas weather, which was a lot warmer than Minnesota. This couple is recommending our villa to their brother and his wife for next January - March 2011! They are a delightful couple and we are blessed to have them here in Texas: if only for a few months!
I am a native East Texas resident, who loves the Texas Hill Country! I work for my own company: R J Trading Group, LTD, a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) HUB certified operating in the state of Texas. I travel a lot throughout our great state of Texas. I am active in a variety of non-profit endeavors and find these ministries very fulfilling. Tennis is one of my favorite activities: I really enjoy the two tennis courts just outside my condo. We enjoy our Hill Country Retreat with family and friends. Our grandchildren especially enjoy headquartering in this condo and then venturing out to explore the Hill Country. We have recently begun geo-caching in and around the Hill Country. You will be pleased to note that there are many geo-caches very close to our villa. This is a family activity suitable for all ages. It is like a treasure hunt...just google geo-caching and you, too, will be hooked. We bring our bikes on most visits and everyone enjoys exploring the landscape one peddle at a time.
Our family has vacationed in the New Braunfels area for the past twenty-five years. About seven years ago, we made the decision to purchase one condo, which we loved sharing with others. Five years later, we added another condo in the same complex. As a member of the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, I became aware that New Braunfels is one of the top THREE DESTINATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES! I KNEW there was a reason I kept coming back here to the Texas Hill Country. Come by, stay for a weekend or a week, and you'll see what I mean.
This specific unit is nicknamed RETRO. You will enjoy the old style formica table popular back in the 1950's. This two bedroom unit enjoys private baths for each bedroom, along with a large living area, and is on the bottom floor of a two story building. The condo is beautifully furnished and looks out on two tennis courts. The swimming pool is just steps from your front door beneath the canopy of a 500 year old oak tree. There is even a kiddie pool for the little ones. Picnic tables and grills beside the pool make your evening meal a snap!
