About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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!

About Barbara

I am a native East Texas resident, who loves the Texas Hill Country As 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.

Barbara purchased this condo in 2008

Why Barbara chose Texas Hill Country

Our family has vacationed in the New Braunfels area for the past twenty-five years. About nine years ago, we made the decision to purchase one condo, which we loved sharing with others. Seven 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.

What makes this condo unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and have always had an enjoyable stay. The condo has all of the amenities of home in a serene outdoor setting. We love how convenient it is. It is just minutes from grocery stores, shopping, local attractions, Gruene and so much more. The beds are very comfortable and condo is clean. We definitely will be staying here again.

We were VERY pleased with our stay at this condo!! We stayed here with our 2 boys and 4 of their friends and never had to leave to keep them busy.Very family friendly community! The condo was accurately described and well maintained. The condo has been recently updated to give a home like feeling when you walk into the front door.

When we came back from a day at Schiltterbahn, we were all able to take hot showers and have plenty hot water for them. We also had plenty of towels for all 8 to shower with both days. The dryer in the condo was handy for drying our swim suits for the 2 days at Schlitterbahn. The boys got to feed the deer that came right up to the drive way of the condo.The owner provides tennis rackets and balls and you literally walk right out the back door and into the courts. You are able to watch them play on the courts while you are in the kitchen or sitting in the living room watching the television. The beds are the most comfortable beds that we have ever slept on. We looked to see what kind because intend to replace all 3 of ours with this brand. The only thing you need to provide is the food....everything else is right there in the condo. Plenty of blankets because the ac froze us out and we all like it pretty cold when we sleep.

We would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a place to stay in the New Braunfels area and wants a good location to the local attractions but want to keep the little eyes away from the "local sites". Upon arrival on the first evening, I made a dash to HEB which was less than 5 minutes from the condo. There are plenty of places within less than 5 minutes to grap something on the go as well. The owner provides a notebook with local area favorites with menus to them as well. We will be visiting again!!! Thank you for making this vacation for us memorable and very accomodating!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing trip! We were 2 mins from the HEB, 5 mins from the river or Schlitterbahn. We played tennis right out the back door (condo had rackets & balls), swam in the great pool, cooked out on grill. The deer were out every evening for us to watch & feed. The condo was clean and comfy!!! Had everything we needed except our swimsuits! Thanks a ton!!

Great condo, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations. It is clean, comfortable, relaxing and the decor was pleasant and delightful! There is no reason to have to leave once you arrive, but the surrounding area offers lots to do. On one morning walk, I counted over 70 deer!

We hope to be back soon. I highly recommend this unit, for your vacation. You will not be disappointed.

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this rental a few times and have found it to be very comfortable. We enjoy staying in this condo because it feels like a home away from home. The property is nestled in the beautiful Texas hill country. The wildlife here is amazing. The deer are so close you would think you could touch them. The condo is conveniently located just minutes away from tons of activities. We spent time in Gruene, Sea World, the outlet malls, and the river walk. There are many things to do on the condo property as well, like swim, play tennis and spend time in nature. Inside the condo you can find various amenities, such as extremely comfortable beds, spacious living area, and a full kitchen equipped with all you could need for a great meal. The rental was very clean and everything was working properly. I loved having a washer and dryer while we were here. It made vacationing that much better. The rental provided more than enough convenience, comfort, and fun for our family. The owners were very easy to deal with. It is easy to see that they are a family oriented couple with great personalities and values. Also, the neighbors who reside in the neighboring condos were very friendly and helpful with information on the surrounding area. All in all this was a very peaceful and relaxing stay. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this rental to any of my family and friends.

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo last summer and it was wonderful! We could not have been more pleased. It was newly updated, and we loved the decor. Really comfortable. All of the beds were extremely cozy. (Be warned, you may want to sleep in!) This condo had everything we needed ... washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, two nice full bathrooms, cute kitchen, etc. Everything! Walk right out your back door and play tennis! And it's so conveniently located to all of the attractions in and around New Braunfels. We had a wonderful time! We highly recommend this property, and hopefully it will be available when we plan our return to the area this year. Oh, and if you have a larger group going, these super-nice owners have an equally attractive, almost adjacent, three-bedroom property in the same complex.
