Nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on the bank of the Comal Springs, this charming 800 square-foot historical cottage is fully furnished with a kitchen, fireplace for ambiance only (non-functioning) and central air and heat.
Villa Sartain is reminiscent of the Tuscan countryside. Italian cypress trees line the sweeping 500 foot drive down to the entrance of your peaceful vacation cottage. This idyllic cottage is perfect whether you want to play in the crystal clear Comal Springs or just relax and enjoy the mild climate and scenic beauty.
The cottage is set-up for a romantic get-away for couples. (only one couple on the property at a time). The screened-in porch is perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and the peaceful views. Prepare your lunch on a gas grill in the outdoor stone living area, then top off your evening by the chiminea around a stone cocktail table.
There are five flagstone patios terraced down to the Comal Springs for dining, reading and relaxing. The lower terrace features a semi-private swimming and floating area and a charcoal grill at the river bank. The location, serenity and privacy create a paradise for snow birds and travelers looking for a month or longer get-away.
The whole community of New Braunfels is charmed by the reassuring whistle of the train. Just 1.5 miles from the historic town of Gruene and Gruene Hall, the oldest operating dance hall in Texas.

Our visit to the cottage was amazing. Janie was great! We enjoyed everything. The beautiful surrounding, the quaint cottage with all the comforts of home, the great porch to enjoy our morning coffee and afternoon naps on. We had big plans to shop and explore the town, but couldn't make ourselves leave the cottage. Loved it! Can wait to return.”
Our very first visit to Texas, was an extremely enjoyable one. The cottage on the Comal is a unique, wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed meeting with and learning about the area from our outstanding hosts, Jamie and Allen. The village of New Braunfels has so much to offer; sightseeing, restauants, and nearby attractions, etc. The cottage was ideally located, had everything we needed to be comfortable, and what a view!

We stayed at the villa for the month of February. Our intent was to get to know the New Braunfels area and decide if it was a place we could live. Our hosts at the villa helped make it an easy decision. They are excellent ambasadors for the region. They were very helpful in directing us to places to visit and explaining the local culture. Quite frankly, they were lots of fun! As for the cottage and setting, check out the other reviews. They are all true! This is a great place to rent for a vacation. The accommodations are special and the setting is great. We would have no hesitation in returning to Villa Sartain. Ciao!
We thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay at the Villa Sartain. The cottage was charming - far more impressive and unique than the photos show. The location was convenient for all our New Braunfels and Hill Country explorations. There was so much to see and do in November, and the weather was a treat for two Oregonians. We particularly loved the warm welcome from our hosts, Janie and Allen, and how they continued to make us feel at home throughout the month.
My husband and I stayed in this lovely cottage for the weekend and we could not have asked for more. Janie, the owner has thought of everything and showed us the best hospitality! Her suggestions were spot on and her thoughtfulness made us feel welcome like we were visiting family. Beautiful bike ride into New Braunfels for coffee and farmers market. Great time in Greune, exploring true Texas (living in Dallas is not Texas). Highly recommend for couple's getaway, stay a week or a month and you will not regret it.
Kayaking down the Comal River is refreshing and caught several nice bass.
I hate writing this review, because it can only result in more demand....and higher prices!
Janie is an excellent hostess and the property is very, very nice. Old world charm and modern conveniences....what's not to like?? The owners were very thoughtful and left nothing to chance. Our 3 night stay was AWESOME and included a couple of surprise "plates" from Janie. By far, the "cold plate" of venison sausage/mustard/crackers was the BEST!! The Cottage is close to everything that New Braunfels has to offer, yet very private and relaxing. This is a most excellent place to spend a night or ten.
Watch out for Ceazar 2....he might lick your leg!!
We fell in love with the cottage and the area. It's like stepping into Tuscany.
Kayaking right from the waterfront property, in the Comal Springs was so much fun. The scenery is breathtaking, and water is crystal clear.
Enjoyed our morning coffee on the screened porch overlooking the town, and at night we could see the lights below, and the stars above. So many things to see and do close by.
Very thankful to have discovered this hidden gem. The owners are so nice, very thoughtful, and sensitive to your privacy. This was one of our best vacations ever. You'll feel right at home here. Very highly reccommended !
Tubing and floating in the Comal River accessible from our river bank and 1.5 miles to the crossing at the Guadalupe. Live music at Gruene Hall week nights and weekends.
