About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 12


This two bedroom, two story home can sleep 12! The house is located next to Schlitterbahn Water Park. The property is 1/4 block from the Comal River & Comal Tube Chute, 1/2 block from the Guadalupe River and 2 blocks from historical downtown New Braunfels.

This is a perfect vacation location for summer fun. Gruene is only 1 mile away and you are just 20 minutes to San Antonio, where you can visit the Alamo, River Walk, Seaworld and Fiesta Texas.

Hinman Island Park: Few Blocks Away!

If you want to swim and not tube, this is the place to do it. Hinman Island Park is a quiet stretch between Landa Park and Prince Solms Park. The river is 30 feet wide and 10 feet deep, just right for swimming laps. However, this stretch can get crowded on the weekends. It is free and there is a nice bathhouse.

No issues here

My family and I decided to take a small vacation before school started back up. I contacted Linda through this website and was told to give her a call in order to book. I called her and she was pleasant. I was hesitant because I saw reviews so I asked questions. A lot of questions. I was told the home was not very updated and she was in a different city. I was ok with that. She assured me the home was cleaned. My family and I arrived with no problems. Yes it was pretty out of date but I had no issues with the home.

It was great because it was right next to Schliterbahn. My girls loved it. It was super convenient. I am definitely going to bring the family back here soon to go down the river. I see myself a repeat customer.

The lady told us when we booked the place had not been updated but that was very much an understatement. This place is nasty! The pictures are not what this place looks like. I can do dated, I can't do filth and this was filth. The furniture was torn up and the couch was torn up so badly it had the cushions from the previous couch on top of it so you didn't fall through. Stay anywhere but here.

I have stayed at many places all found through, but his place was horrendous. I should have known when Linda kept telling me this wasn't a luxury hotel, that many past guest had done damage and stolen items. But to offset these short comings she doesn't charge a security deposit, I had no problem with that as we were coming for the river anyway, but I was in no way prepared for what awaited us.

We had a difficult time finding the location, and tried calling Linda numerous times, she never called us back. Upon entering there was a odd odor, torn up blinds, and roaches, the futons which were to be used as couches had random cushions from other couches. But the worst was that we were one blanket short and had to use one at the property and my kids found a used condom!!!!

I understand that Linda might not live near the property and is trusting whomever she has hired to maintain it, but she should at least do a once a month inspection.


I have never had to leave a negative comment for any of the other properties I have rented before, and I hate that I have to now, but I feel that others should be warned.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We love it here. We have stayed several times and will be back this year. It's very conveniently located to everything. It's very rustically decorated. Very comfortable. I highly recommend everyone give it a try. You will never stay at a hotel again while in New Braunfel.

Excellent Vacation Rental Next To Schlitterbahn

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property and were really pleased with the accomodations. It's right next door to schlitterbahn water park and an easy walk to take your tubes down to the river and ride the tube shoots and relax on the water. There are public river exit points along the river within a short walk from the townhouses. I talked to several people staying in the same complex and their rates were considerably higher with the same accomodations. We will definately be staying at this property again and would highly recommend it to future vacations wanting to be close to everything and within a short drive to numerous attractions such as Wonderland Park, Natural Bridge Caverns and the WildLife ranch! It has certainly been an amazing vacation!
