About Sharon O'Toole
I grew up in very far south Texas and had relatives in Austin. We had MANY family reunions in New Braunfels. I ended up going to college in Austin and always wanted to end up in New Braunfels. It's a great family town!
Sharon O'Toole purchased this House in 2006
Why Sharon O'Toole chose New Braunfels
The Market Street House is close to everything New Braunfels! The Comal River is 50 yards away. There are 3 tubing outfitters out the front door. Walk to great restaurants, bars, music venues, the farmers market, historic sites, etc.
What makes this House unique
In addition to great people watching from the front porch swing under the ceiling fan, The Market Street House has a large inside gathering space with ample seating. The covered back deck (also with ceiling fan) has a bbq grill and more eating space. There is also a lot of off street parking available behind the house.

Stay and Play in New Braunfels, Texas!
Mark and I spent a delightful weekend in New Braunfels! This charming and cute little cottage on Market Street was home for us. A trip to the Bakery! WOW! Strolling down the main street was just fun! A must see is the 150 year old hardware store right there on Main Street. A trip to Gruene is also a must. We found Gruene Hall to be hopping with entertainment and neat people. Texas Tubes is out the front door and a 3 minute walk. The river was awesome! We sat on the back porch and read. Loved the front porch swing and found the little cottage to be heaven. Dishwasher, Washing Machine, AC, Dryer, all the finest of appliances! You could't ask for anything more!
The Train at Landa Park was so much fun. We needed a retreat from the world and the Market Street Cottage provide a sanctuary for fun, play, rest and relaxation!
Stay Where You Play! Comfort and convenience, you must experience it to truly appreciate it!
A favorite vacation home
Last year we (2 adults and 4 children aged 1 to 10) made a wonderful 3-month trip across the US, from Miami to San Francisco by car and then to New York by airplane before flying back home to Sweden.
During the trip we rented 13 different properties of which this is one and I would say we got quite experienced when it comes to evaluating various aspects of vacation properties and property managers/owners.
In brief, this New Braunfels home is really great. In fact, it is probably my favorite of all the properties we rented and I absolutely agree with all positive things said in the other reviews.
We would definitely recommend it to others and we would love to stay here again!
Best location in New Braunfels, TX
This was the third annual river trip our group has stayed in one of the homes managed/owned by this company. We loved the Libel House but as our group has grown we needed to have a place with more space... so we rented both for the weekend. The N. Market St. house is bigger and closer to the water and the price per person is the same so it was a no brainer to add it to the trip to accomodate our larger group. Both homes have had everything you need and nothing that you don't. You will find tons of parking, a convenience store across the street (from the Market house), and a grocery store within five minutes too. We look forward to returning next year. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home.
A PERFECT 10!
This home was everything we expected...and more! It was so neat to stay in a home with such history that had been so expertly updated. We walked in and felt like we'd walked in to a home straight out of Better Homes and Gardens! Incredibly comfortable, clean and every detail thought of. It even SMELLS good! We found ourselves lounging around even longer than expected in the mornings because we enjoyed the home so much (Schlitterbahn? Who needs Schiltterbahn?) LOL! My favorite touches included the DVDs and games in the cabinets, a welcome bag of Oreos and coffee on the counter. It was a real treat to stay here -- thank you!!!
Great Getaway from the City
We had a mini family reunion over the July 4th weekend and this house was the perfect getaway for the 10 of us. It was so nice to wake up and drink our coffee on the front porch swing. We floated the river each day and would get back to the house in time for lunch and a game of 42 on the back porch. In the evenings we ventured into Gruene and then came home to play games. This was my second time staying at the Market Street House and look forward to my next! The house has everything you could ever need and is the perfect location for a relaxing weekend on the river.
This place is just great! I took a trip here with my boyfriend and a bunch of friends. The house is so cute and the location couldn't be better. We were 440ft from Texas Tubes which made transportation to float the river a non-issue.The amenities were great and the beds were comfortable. We grilled out in the backyard on Saturday night and it was arguably the best part of the trip, hanging out on the porch and catching up. Great house! My boyfriend and I will actually be returning in August!
