About Dino and Teresa

Dino and Teresa are extremely proud to offer our home for your enjoyment. We love this area of Texas and plan on retiring here one day away from the cold winters of Chicago. While we work towards our retirement goal - we look for you to share and enjoy our wonderful 'La Bella Villa'.

Dino and Teresa purchased this house in 2014

Why Dino and Teresa chose New Braunfels

It's not just us saying, but everybody that comes by loves this home. It is private but still close to tons of activities. You can simply relax in the pool at the property. Or you can enjoy everything the area provides - tubing, fishing, boating, hiking, shopping, golfing, hunting, exploring, music, restaurants, etc. - and at the end of the day, you will have this wonderful property waiting for you. We also love the location. We could enjoy cities like Austin or San Antonio (both about 1 hour away) or the quaint towns of Gruene, Wimberely, New Braunfels, Fredricksburg, etc. If you like shopping - the San Marcos outlets are close to you.

Bottom line - the home can adapt to your needs - and that's why we love it.

What makes this house unique

Home has truly a resort feel with private pool and spa.

got back yesterday and already booked next trip.

The owner Dino has been such a pleasure to deal with...returning all emails within 24 hours...very kind. The photos don't do this home justice. The overall feeling of peace and tranquility upon entering the gates are just what the doctor ordered. The hot tub Jacuzzi and heated pool along with a huge deck and outdoor kitchen allow for a day full of fun, there is no need to leave. The house was decorated so warm and beautifully...beds were comfy and the master bath tub had such therapeutic jets...it felt like a real luxury spa experience esp when you factor in the candles and huge windows overlooking gorgeous hill country. The kitchen is fully stocked for those of you who enjoy cooking. The birds were singing beautifully in the morning, the deer were within feet grazing, the fireflies lit up the property at night, and the stars were amazing. I admit...I did sing..."Deep in the heart of Texas" along with a clap while viewing the stars at night. So much simple beauty....a secluded slice of heaven. My boys (ages 3, 5 and 7) had a great time exploring the grounds, but I recommend bringing a few toys if you have kids. There were floaties and some fun water toys outside near the pool along with a stereo. I searched all properties and this one by far was the nicest and very reasonable. Highly recommend!!! You won't be disappointed. Thank you so much for sharing your home on VRBO. Spectacular! Unplug an enjoy!

Great Texas Hill Country Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything imaginable for a great home away from home - both inside and out. Before I get into the house and property itself, I want to say that the owner was a pleasure to deal with. He was very helpful and responsive throughout the whole process, from answering my questions before booking the rental to refunding my security deposit the day that I checked out, and everything in between. The property manager was also nice and helpful.

I'll start off reviewing the outside, since that's where we spent most of our time. There is a covered patio that has an overhead fan. There's a large picnic table where you could easily fit a pretty large group. We had 6 people, there was definitely room for a few more. There is also a wood-burning fireplace. There is a nice infrared grill with a very large cooking surface. It's hooked up directly to a gas line, so there is not any chance of having a propane tank go empty on you. The hot tub has jets and bubbles and the heater worked pretty well. We did not heat up the pool, but you have the option to, for a small fee. The water was clean and didn't smell overly chlorine-ish.

On the inside, there is a living room with seating around the TV for 6. There are also some ottomans, a bar with three bar stools, and a kitchen table with seating for four. The beds were all either doubles or queens in the main building. The dual-head shower in the master bath is very nice.

The kitchen had pretty much everything you could possibly need. There is an abundance of dishes and flatware. The dishwasher has room for a ton of dishes. We cooked two breakfasts and two large dinners and only had to run the dishwasher once. There is also a washer and dryer that you can use.

There is also a second building on the property with a living area, bed, and full bath. I didn't really go in there much, but one of our guests stayed in there and he said the bed was comfortable.

The location is on the side of a pretty big hill. There is a Lowe's grocery store within a 5 or 10 minute drive that has pretty good fresh meats and everything else you could possibly need to cook. They also have firewood for the aforementioned fireplace.

All in all, we truly had a 5 star experience and I would definitely stay here again.

Tranquil setting for a wonderful retreat.

Beautiful home with all the amenities one would want for a weekend getaway or longer. The home itself is spacious and decorated beautifully. The outdoor living spaces were beautiful and comfortable. We will definitely stay here in the future.

WOW! BEAUTIFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, What an awesome property! Very high quality home and appliances, great furnishings. The photos don't do justice to the amazing view, great pool, hot tub, outdoor kitchen, etc. Complete privacy from all neighbors, yet only 10 minutes to shopping. The view of the stars while relaxing in the Hot Tub was incredible! We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and can't wait to go back next year!

Couples Trip

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our couples trip to the hill country and had all the amentaties that you would need for a relaxing weekend. The outdoor area including the pool (heated) and covered grilling station were amazing and great for a group BBQ. River and lake activities are less than 15 minutes away as well as a large concert venue. This was all around a great experience and would recommend the house without hesitation.
