If we are booked for your requested dates - please check out our other property# 830412

Welcome to 'La Villa Bella'. La Villa Bella means 'The Beautiful Residence' in Italian. You will understand why when you arrive and are welcomed by the long private beautifully landscaped driveway surrounded by palm trees and tropical plants. The location is absolutely perfect - nested outside New Braunfels and close to Canyon Lake on a private 4 acre estate.

Our previous guests consistently comment on how beautiful and comfortable the home is. The main home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It is fully furnished with an ideal kitchen for the cooking enthusiasts and a laundry room for your extended stays. It also has an outdoor building named 'Casita Rocco'. It is about 30 feet away from the main home. 'Casita Rocco' has a bathroom with a shower, kitchenette, furnished with a sofa, tv, dining table, trundle bed for 2. Perfect for separate children or teenage quarters.

Enjoy cooling off in the private pool while taking in the hill county views. Start the massive outdoor fireplace while grilling a late night snack under the beautiful pergola to warm up those 'chilly' evenings. What a gathering place for family and friends to rekindle old memories while creating new ones.

About Dino and Teresa

Dino and Teresa are extremely proud to offer our home for your enjoyment. We love this area of Texas and plan on retiring here one day away from the cold winters of Chicago. While we work towards our retirement goal - we look for you to share and enjoy our wonderful 'La Bella Villa'.

Dino and Teresa purchased this house in 2014

Why Dino and Teresa chose Texas Hill Country

It's not just us saying, but everybody that comes by loves this home. It is private but still close to tons of activities. You can simply relax in the pool at the property. Or you can enjoy everything the area provides - tubing, fishing, boating, hiking, shopping, golfing, hunting, exploring, music, restaurants, etc. - and at the end of the day, you will have this wonderful property waiting for you. We also love the location. We could enjoy cities like Austin or San Antonio (both about 1 hour away) or the quaint towns of Gruene, Wimberely, New Braunfels, Fredricksburg, etc. If you like shopping - the San Marcos outlets are close to you.

Bottom line - the home can adapt to your needs - and that's why we love it.

What makes this house unique

Home has truly a resort feel with private pool and spa.

Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely comfortable and picture-perfect for a family vacation. Location and privacy were excellent. There was more than enough room for everyone to relax and be comfortable. Having a pool was ideal for my granddaughter and the hot tub was just right, and relaxing after a day of rafting the Guadeloupe. My family truly enjoyed the experience! Will definitely visit this rental again!

River Resort and Hill Country Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our weekend getaway entertaining customers and friends. The home itself was stunning!!! The house's location could not be more perfect since it is just minutes from the river but not right in the middle of all the river hoopla and vacationers! Whether your looking for a romantic getaway, family vacation, or a fun girls weekend, this place has it all.. the awesome hill country and river view, the amenities, etc. it is everything you could dream of and more!!! Not only was the home amazing, Dino and Teresa were very accommodating and the hospitality received was phenomenal! Thank you Dino and Teresa, I look forward to working with you and vacationing to your lovely home again soon!

Family New Braunfels trip

  • 4 of 5

Great relaxing trip with a beautiful home, fantastic pool, and amazing view. The only down side is the beds are extremely uncomfortable. Watch out for the neighbor's goose who has an aggressive personality. Highly recommend it and would come back again.

Couldnt have asked for a better bachelorette!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was so much more than I could have ever hoped for when having my bachelorette. The pictures did not do justice to how perfect it was. It was so cozy and fun. It was 8 girls total and we had plenty of space an more. We will definitely be back in the future and I can't wait for more time here. Dino was so awesome to work with so thank you for making this experience so wonderful!!!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property was just perfect for our family vacation. The house, amenities, views, area, local food, all just perfect. We would stay here again at the drop of a hat! Side note, if you like cycling, nothing quite like hill country and this is a great starting point.
