About Pat

I grew up water skiing and boating. My two boys have done the same thing. At heart, we are true lovers of the water and all it has to offer. We want everyone to be able to experience the same fun and excitement that we have. The memories will be with you forever.

Why Pat chose New Braunfels

If you love the water and love having fun with friends, I can promise you there is no place around that offers all the fun things that are at Bikinisland. You can ski, boat, tube and dance on Cheers party barge at night, all at one place. A huge party bus provides transportation to and from Schlitterbahn for more fun. Play volley ball and tether ball, pass the football or Frisbee and enjoy the in water trampoline.

What makes this chalet unique

Water skiing, tubing, a huge in-water trampoline, party barge and great view are fun things to enjoy that you cant get anywhere else at one place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This past weekend, I let a group from Trinity College in San Antonio stay on Saturday night. They represented themselves to me as upstanding and responsible so I let them stay. Far far from that were they. The damage totaled almost $1,200.00 which Im going to collect as soon as I finish this Review. They are the perfect example of why most property owners do not allow college groups to rent their property. I wont again. My name is Pat Moore property owner.

An Annual Event

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Bikinisland and plan on making it an annual event! Like last year, we had such a good time.

We jumped off the balcony into the water, jumped on the trampoline, were pulled on the tube behind the boat, played pool and air hockey, floated, took a barge ride (we named it The Booze Cruise), ate and drank all weekend. We still didn’t try skiing but there’s always next year. ;)

Pat and his family were very nice and accommodating. Thanks for having us back and plan on seeing us next year!

Our Lifes Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Our third year in a row to stay here. We love to get out of the cold and strees of work and come here. Texas winters are like our hottest summer days! The breeze here is spectacular and we all love enjoying the view. You feel like your on top of little paradise.

Everyone you meet no matter where you are in this area is so genuinely nice. The Texas music is wonderful and the wineries in Gruene were fasntastic!

We loved skiing with the owner and his boats were fantastic. He really helped my son improve in his wakeboarding. The hottub was a great relief of some sore muscles. I think I need to stay in ship shape year round!

Im always blown away at how much fun my entire family has when we come down. This place that makes it hard to leave.

Thanks for everything! And sorry again for the fireplace mess!

See you next year!

Great place to have FUN!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at Bikinisland. We went as a big group and we're going back! We had such a good time. The house is right on the lake. You can even jump right off the balcony into the water, how fun is that? We ate and drank and stayed up all night and floated all day. The owner has ski boats and teaches skiing but we didn't take advantage of that. We did however go on the party barge. The lake is beautiful and we went as the sun was setting, brought everything we wanted to eat and drink with us on the barge and had a great time.

The house is a real open layout and the owner was upfront about that. Since we were all friends, that wasn't a problem for us. We had such a good time, I just booked our group for this year!

Owner's Response: Thank you Karen for your nice comments about your stay at Bikinisland. We've had so many people stay there over the years, no exageration, over 2000 people and at least 90% love it. What's funny is often one of the guests of a group arrange a booking with a new group so he or she comes again. You guys were great and you didnt leave a mess or break anything. Some people think that a cleaning fee is for picking up garbage, spills, trash, etc. so they dont care how they leave it. You guys left the place in a respectful condition. You are always welcome back.

Make sure you know what you're getting

  • 3 of 5

My group and I were drawn to this place by the description on this website and by the pictures. All in all we were happy with the place, but there were several things that we thought were amiss or misadvertised that you should be aware of if you're considering it.

First of all, understand that this property is in the owners back yard. You literally walk through his garage to get to it. This may not be a huge deal for you, but it surprised some of us, and don't be shocked if the owner is coming and going in his boat throughout the day/night.

Another issue was the horribly loud and music that was played from the owners house ALL NIGHT. The speakers were clearly blown and all you could hear was the scratchy sounding noise blaring well past 4am (when we were finally able to fall asleep)

Also understand that the owner rents other nearby property and the amenities described are provided on a "community" basis. ie. Don't be surprised if there are dozens of little kids jumping on the trampoline right below your party.

1 full bath 2 half baths is referring to the one bathroom in the house and two "outhouse" type installations 75 yards outside the front door.

The Hot Tub which is advertised is literally on the owners back porch, right outside of his bedroom. We walked over to use it one night and found it covered, turned off and cold. The owner was also sleeping literally 12 feet away. We gave up and walked a hundred yards back to our house.

The lake has no public boat launch, so if you want to rent a boat, be prepared to pay the owner 200 bucks an hour for him to chauffeur your and your group around in his boat.

You will be charged a 250 dollar cleaning fee and also be expected to clean thoroughly. Go figure.

The beds have no linens. There are no towels. I slept under a beach towel for two nights.

One day while we were floating the river we left the AC on so we could return to a cool house...well, the owner decided to come into the house and turn off the AC units, presumably to save a dollar fifty on top of the 2,300 bucks he was already getting out of us for two days.

All in all, the house is decent. Just understand that not everything is as it appears once you actually arrive. 3/5

Owner's Response: Im sorry guys you had such a bad time All I heard from you was a lot of laughing and partying. You also stated that next year you would be back. You guys even invited me to join for food which I declined as I always do. The rate for water skiing is not $200.00 and never has been. It's $100.00. No one stopped you from bringing your boat. There is one ramp on the lake which is private, but all you have to do is ask the owner and he seems to always let others use it. I told you this before you came Yes, I live on the property. It works well for all especially when you needed something which often you did. No one turned off your A/C. It seems a lot of what you posted is not true. As for the trampoline, you didnt rent it. You are welcome to use it but it is not yours privately just like the hot tub, tubes, life jackets, skiis, etc You were told this when you arrived. What all of this is about is the fact that you havent finished paying me when you should have already. Your rental agreement states clearly that you are to pay in full before you take possession and you will pay for any damages that may occur from members of your group. Yes, I've been bugging you for payment and you wont honor the signed agreement. It's funny how people's fun turns to anger when they dont want to pay. No matter what guys, you are always welcome back. All you have to do is finish paying me.

Great Place

We stopped in mid week with our family for a night and enjoyed the great view and river fun. Watched some amazing wakeboarders ski by, and had a great time jumping and swimming. The boys loved it and didnt want to leave!
