Texas Hill Country House Rental Photos and Description

House 4 Bedrooms & 3 Baths sleeps 14-18

Fantastic New House that was built in 2009!

You are going to love your vacation in New Braunfels! This house is only 5 miles from Schlitterbahn and tubing on the Comal or Guadalupe River.

This home is the perfect place for a large group or family to come relax and take in the hill country.

This home comes fully equipped with a BBQ pit, Washer, Dryer, Wireless Internet, HDTV, and so much more!

Come relax in this amazing new 4 bedroom, 3 bath home that was just built in 2009! In addition to over 2300 square feet of living space, there is an additional 3000+ square feet of outdoor space with a giant Deck off the house that covers the patio below, and another 2 level deck down right over the water!

Lounge in the sun or the shade. Enjoy swimming or wake boarding on one of the calmest lakes in Texas. There is a boat launch 5 minutes away and plenty of room to tie up your boat or jet ski below our waterfront deck.

Inside the house you will enjoy a gorgeous gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and island/bar. The kitchen flows into the dining room and then into the living room to create a huge open space to hangout and relax. Our kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need. Just bring the food and we will supply the dishes, pots, pans, silverware and everything in between!

The living room has a great 50' HDTV and a leather sofa sleeper with love seat. Also on the main floor is the Master bedroom that has a King Size bed and a private bathroom with a HUGE walk-in shower. Across the hall from the Master bedroom is another bedroom with two (2) full size beds. There is also another full bathroom downstairs.

We also have a full size washer and dryer downstairs for your convenience.

Head upstairs and take in the breathtaking views from another bedroom with a King size bed, a den area which has a sofa sleeper and another HDTV (great area for the kids!). The den opens up onto a beautiful 1000 square foot deck with amazing views of the lake.

Past the den is the 'Bunk Room' that has 1 Full on top of Full Bunk Bed and 1 separate full size bed (That's 3 Full size beds!). Also upstairs is a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom (2 separate sinks which are separated from the rest of the bathroom).

If the house and the lake don’t keep you busy enough, you are incredibly close to everything else that the New Braunfels area has to offer:

Schlitterbahn Water Park - 2 miles

Tubing - 2 miles

Golf Courses - 2 miles

Landa Park - 2 miles

San Marcos Outlet Malls - 14 miles

San Antonio Riverwalk - 30 miles

About Debbs or Wendy Nelson

Happily married with two grown daughters. Retired from the oil and gas industry after 32 years.

Debbs or Wendy Nelson purchased this house in 2012

Why Debbs or Wendy Nelson chose Texas Hill Country

We purchased this property because we wanted a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Houston. We wanted a place to enjoy water sports and believe Lake Dunlap is one of the finest Wake Board Lakes in Texas

What makes this house unique

Seclusion and Calm Water yet close proximity to some of the finest activities Texas Hill Country has to offer.

This was the perfect location for our 20th annual family trip to New Braunfels. The house was beautiful, well decorated with all the necessary extras and very, very clean. The property has a great deal to offer: access to the water for swimming/floating, a sun deck for the sun worshippers and those wanting to "take the plunge", a yard perfect for grilling or yard games, and is only minutes from everything that New Braunfels and Gruene have to offer. I would rent this house again in a heartbeat - I heartily recommend it.

Great place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family here for vacation and had a wonderful time! The house was clean and just perfect for us and our 3 children, their spouses and 2 grands. We had a blast on the lake everyday with our pontoon and jet skis and hung out in the backyard every evening. When we arrived the grass needed a good mowing due to the large amount of rain in the area. I texted the owner, and he made sure someone came immediately to do so. Will definitely be staying again!

Best Memorial Weekend Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for opening your house to us. A group of about 20 of us have an annual New Braunfels trip, and this was our 5th year to celebrate. We had the best time and made some of the best memories. We have no idea how we will ever top this trip. Thank you!

Great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house as well as the location was great! With a group of 13 guys there was plenty of room for everyone. Located on the river down a dead end road you feel like you are out of town but located literally miles from everything. We had a wonderful stay, thank you!
