Rental property was exactly what we were looking for and more!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend in New Braunfels and this rental property was awesome! This house was furnished with everything that we needed and we had a great time hanging out in the backyard in the evening. After a long day at Schlitterbahn it was nice to only have to drive a couple of minutes down the road. We will definitely be back for another weekend trip in the future!

Nice place. Close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Overall the house is very comfortable and close to the river and Schlitterbahn. The backyard is perfect for relaxing after a long day. We recommend a new lock box and toilet roll holder in the guest bathrom. 😁

Fantastic.....with an exception

  • 3 of 5

The home was clean, nicely furnished, and well maintained. The backyard living area was delightful and created a wonderful ambiance.

The biggest drawback is that the home is located adjacent to ADM and semi-trucks ran day and night. The noise from this was the one thing that made our experience less desirable, especially for the price.

Owner's Response: I apologize that the noise from the flour plant bothered you. We have never had a complaint prior to this so I called them to find out if something had changed with their procedure. Once a year they do a fumigation and that machinery does make more noise. Unfortunately it was that weekend of your stay. They had some issues and the process took longer than normal too. I know that doesnt make up for your inconvenience, but at least we know what the problem was. Thank you for staying with us and hopefully you will consider staying with us the next time you are in New Braunfels.

Great location. Perfect house for family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out great for a short family vacation. Would love to come back and enjoy it on an adult only trip. The backyard has so much to offer.

The location is great too. We were able to walk to the river and to restaurants and bars as well.

The house was clean and well stocked. We never felt like we didn't have anything we needed.

Looking forward to staying there again.

A great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here ! We traveled from Pennsylvania for a weekend trip to float the river and see some shows. The house is centrally located, a 10 minute drive in any direction will get you somewhere you will enjoy. The house was clean and comfortable. The outside area was awesome for a night at home with some good tunes. Neighbors were friendly, especially the local deer! Would definitely come back again !

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything! Lisa was a great hostess and very responsive to all of my questions. We slept 7 comfortably and it truly was a home away from home. Made my first river trip one to remember. Highly recommend!!

New Braunfels is conveniently located between San Antonio and Austin, at the edge of the Hill Country. Our town is known for several attractions: Our Rivers!! (the Comal and the Guadalupe) which offer endless water fun and relaxation; Schlitterbahn Water Park (voted #1 in the world); our quaint downtown district with restaurants, shops and bars; and just on the outskirts of New Braunfels is the town of Gruene with its restaurants, shopping and the infamous Gruene Hall (oldest dance hall in Texas). Another attraction for visitors is the outlet mall in San Marcos, one of the best in the country. We also have the Dry Comal Creek Winery, Natural Bridge Caverns & Wildlife Park and Canyon Lake nearby. New Braunfels is a relaxing tourist destination for all ages and lifestyles!!

Other Activities: Schlitterbahn water park, tubing, kayaking, rafting

Golf: We have two local golf courses. One is the Landa Park Golf Course along the banks of the Comal River, just a stones throw from home. There is a second course located outside of town along the Guadalupe River at the Bandit (FM725). Cart and club rentals are available at both.

Ski: Boat rentals and water skiing available at nearby Canyon Lake and Lake McQueeney.
