About Amz Getaways

For eight years, one name in Canyon Lake Vacation Rentals stood above the rest: AmzGetaways.com. Known for an expansive portfolio of luxurious vacation rentals and exceptional Texas hospitality, the company helped hundreds of families experience Canyon Lake, New Braunfels and surrounding areas at its best. Today, you can still enjoy the same top-notch customer service and lasso your dream vacation rental—we've simply changed our name to Amz Getaways to reflect our family values (“Amz” refers to our kids' initials) and the fact that we have rentals throughout Central Texas. Our commitment to our guests—and our owners—hasn't changed. At the same time, we've expanded our portfolio to include even more luxury vacation rental homes in the New Braunfels and Canyon Lake area.

Why Amz Getaways chose Texas Hill Country

While on vacation in Texas we visited a luxurious new home in the Lake Forest subdivision and we were charmed by the gorgeous views of Canyon Lake and the surrounding hills. After looking at many other properties in the area, we eventually came back to this home and bought it. Over the next few months we decorated it with beautiful furniture to make it elegantly comfortable and inviting. We enjoy staying there when we get the opportunity, and we are now offering this charming home for rental to 'Winter Texans' and other vacationers who appreciate the charm and convenient location of this area while staying in ambience 'above the ordinary.'

What makes this house unique

Operational public boat launching ramps on Canyon Lake are just a few minutes away. Tubing and kayaking on the Guadalupe River are available in Sattler about ten miles / 16 minutes away (and that area of the river, as well as Canyon Lake, are NOT affected by the recently bans on disposable containers on the river in New Braunfels). Pontoon boats, ski boats and wave runner rentals are available at Crane's Mill Marina just six miles away. Historic Gruene and New Braunfels with great restaurants and the famous Schlitterbahn water park are about twenty minutes away. Within just over an hour's drive are lots of interesting places like Fredericksburg with the Nimitz Museum and the 'Pink Dome' Enchanted Rocks, 'Luchenbach Texas', the LBJ Ranch, and several Texas wineries. It's easy to get here too. The home is a 45-minute drive from San Antonio International Airport, and just over an hour from Austin, and about three and a half hours' drive from Houston.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Odessa Originals had a great reunion weekend (but then we always do) and the house surpassed our wildest dreams! It was wonderful and we really appreciate it

Wonderful location to Canyon Lake ... best view!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful rural location to Canyon Lake. Great views of the lake from second and third floors. Very quick and easy drive to Lake ramps. The house is well organized and clean. The bunk room for kiddos is great and our kids and their cousins loved hanging out in their and also in the garage game room. The kitchen has all the utensils needs for every meal, even some spices but they needs some renewal on some. The hardest part of staying here as a respectful adult are all the rules posted and the house rule manual. There are several blue signs throughout the home that instruct you how to care for the home or else consequence sign. I feel bad that these signs exist as I feel there were individuals at some points in time that weren't respectful of this home and now everywhere you turn you are reminded. Sad and not very welcoming or home-y but at the same time I can understand the ways to them being there. Deer come to the front lawn and our kids loved seeing all the wildlife. There is really not any yard for our kids to run and play in and around. Small shelf full of games that is nice for our kids but the baby games don't work and need new batteries and the toys need to be supercleaned as they are grimey and sorted. Thank you for the opportunity to stay here.

A/C Issue was handled very poorly

  • 1 of 5

I rented this house for a weekend (2 nights) for a large sum of money The house itself is nice, spacious, nice game room, nice balcony, close to the lake, etc.

When we arrived Friday night the thermostat was set to on/cool, however the A/C was broken. The upstairs thermostat read 98 degrees at around 6 pm in July in Texas.

One of our party members called the maintenance line, a repairman was sent to fix the A/C, and two representatives of the management company were sent to the residence. When the reps got to the house they offered to go to the store and buy us beer, supplies, etc, however we refused because we came prepared. They offered to extend our check out time on Sunday from 11 am to 2 pm.

The A/C was fixed that evening, however the thermostat still read 90 degrees at 11 PM and 78 degrees at 6:30 AM.

I did not want to negotiate with the property management company in the driveway that evening because I was hosting 9 other people for my birthday, and as they would tell me later, they cannot even make determinations as to refunds as that has to come from the property owner.

I e-mailed the company after our trip and asked for a 50% refund seeing as 1 of the 2 nights we paid for was miserable, and we were forced to remain out on the porch until we decided to try to sleep on top of the covers.

The final decision was to refund me a total of $200, considering that the late checkout I was awarded was a "$250 value." This is roughly a 14% refund.

While we can all agree that the A/C being broken is an unfortunate event, the simple fact of the matter is that regardless how quickly the unit is fixed, physics does not allow for an entire 3 story house to be cooled by one A/C unit in a Texas July night, resulting in a miserable experience for me and my house guests.

A/C is a listed amenity in every advertisement for this property, across multiple mediums, and the house simply was not air conditioned until well into our second day on property, and I feel that a 14% refund is incredibly inappropriate.

I honestly would have rebooked this property again for next year immediately, if they had handled my refund more appropriately.

P.S. My truck was burglarized for $2,000 worth of items while in the driveway, so the area isn't the safest in town.

Owner's Response: Our valued guests should know our recollection of this incident is quite different from how it is described. We feel we acted reasonably under the circumstances, and while we wish the outcome had been different, we stand by the decision. We have received numerous 5 star accolades on numerous venues with regard to our, customer service, cleanliness, and many other aspects associated with our industry. Tim G. demanded money and threatened to leave a bad review if we didn't refund money to him. From time to time homes have some mechanical issues, and Amz and its owners work quickly, and promptly to address any concerns. While this is unfortunate; the issue was beyond our control. Once Amz was notified that the air conditioning was not adequately cooling Amz promptly contacted a licensed repair technician who was at the house, and had completed the repairs within an hour and half after receiving the call. Upon Amz’s arrival to the property our staff brought and installed numerous fans, opened all the windows to evacuate the hot air, and turned off many of the lights. We offered to pick the group up more ice, beer, or anything they would like as we were going to the store to procure more fans. We offered Mr. G and his group a late departure to compensate for the inconvenience and Mr. G  stated they would and asked if 3:30pm would be ok to which we agreed. We departed to the store and upon return we discovered that Mr. G and his group closed every window, turned off the fans, and turned on every light (120-200 degrees per bulb) as if to counteract the cooling process intentionally. We came in and reopened the windows, installed the additional fans, reactivated the original fans and cooled the house 3 degrees in a matter of minutes. The following morning one of our staff attempted to call, and email Mr. G to check in and see how the stay was going and if the property was cooled, and we never heard from Mr. G or anyone else until after the stay. Mr. G. refused numerous attempts to resolve his issue, and never mentioned anything about his truck being burglarized instead chose to send a hateful email demanding a refund with a harassing barrage of reviews, from Mr. G’s wife, and friends upon learning we would not be extorted. We wished the outcome were different, but we merely refused to be "blackmailed or extorted" by someone threatening to post bad reviews online.

Wonderful Girl's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Houston to Canyon Lake for a bachelorette getaway with 9 girls total. The house was perfect! You can expect exactly as the pictures show because it is exactly what you will get. It is just as amazing in real life. We were all so happy with our stay. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by deer in the front lawn, they are so cute! The house was very clean and everything is very organized and in order (which i loved!!). I loved that the kitchen had labels and i didn't have to open every drawer to find something - GENIUS! The beds were very comfortable and the blinds are dark enough so you can sleep in. A lot of the ladies are moms and i know they appreciated this greatly, as part of the beauty of girl's trips is that they can sleep in! :)~ There was plenty of parking for the 4 cars we were in. We were all able to park on the driveway comfortably and safely. The decor was perfect and the kitchen had everything we could need. I would recommend this house 100%. It is perfect for a large group - either family or girls/boys chill getaway. It was one of the best rentals i've stayed in by car. Its very clear that the owners have good taste and care about their property. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 3 s a Charm at Canyon Lake could not have been more perfect. We found every detail of this beautiful home to be as good or better than advertised. I honestly would not have changed a thing. We even enjoyed chatting with many of the neighbors. If you are considering this property, look no further!

Owner's Response: Hello Krunal, We received your comments in regard to your stay, and want to start off by saying we’re disappointed to hear the property was good, but it could be great. Its always a delight to hear feedback from guests as it helps us improve the way we take care of them. I’m sure you’ll be happy to hear that we have actually procured numerous pots and pans. We’d only hoped to hear from you during your stay so that we could have corrected the error of our ways that same day. We haven't heard from any guests in regard to pots and pans missing. In any case, this is a good reminder for us to check with guests at check-in to make sure they are satisfied with the accommodations. Thanks again for the comments, and let us know if we can get the chance to earn your business in the future.

BEAUTIFUL, BREATHTAKING AND COZY

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to relax and unwind before starting the new school year for teachers and administrators. WOW!! This house was everything we wanted and more. Quiet neighborhood w/deer out front. The house was immaculate and cozy. We had 4 adults and 6 young adults/teens. There was plenty of room for everyone. My husband enjoyed the Master suite on the third floor with the Big TV and sound bar. He was able to unwind and enjoy college football w/out interruption. My sister, good friend and myself enjoyed the spacious kitchen, relaxed in the sitting area and loved the cool mornings on the porch and the beautiful view of the lake. The young adults and teens enjoyed the game room and the bunk beds. The wash room was very convenient, we didn't have to bring home dirty clothes. Tubing on the lake was only 10 mins away.The pictures don't do this home justice. It is GORGEOUS!!! The owners are easy to contact and are VERY personable. My only problem was spending too much money at the outlet mall which is about 20 minutes away (LOL). We look forward to going to this area again and Thank You 3s-A-Charm for an unforgettable experience.
