Excludes Holidays

This is truly a unique vacation rental. The home is located directly on the Guadalupe River with over 176 ft of private waterfront property. It's yard is one of the largest yards you will find along the river and is fully shaded by 100 plus year old pecan trees and features landscape lighting throughout the property for easy night time navigation. The pool is 4 times larger then the average pool and offers a great patio area to enjoy both the pool and the wonderful river view. The pool has a water slide on the deep end which is 8 ft deep with a swim ladder next to the water slide. The shallow end features a large corner stair case. The house features a large covered deck with patio furniture and a deck just outside the Kitchen with a covered Gas BBQ Grill.

The home is located on a very private road with little to no traffic. There are 4 homes on the road all of which are vacation rentals and spread out from one another. 2 of which we own. The other two are much smaller homes and typically only book during the January-February winter months. One benefit is that live in home owners can grow tired of strangers arriving and departing constantly and can become rude and make you feel unwelcome in there neighborhood. With no real neighbors, no houses across the street and no houses across the river this is truly a unique area offering much privacy while still being close by to local stores and attractions. If you’d like please see our reviews for their impressions of the neighborhood and area and why they chose our homes. Please note internet maps/street view almost always shows wrong location. Even correct location shows images 8 year old and long before any landscaping went in etc..Our own pictures are kept current and up to date. You can view even more pictures on our website at www.theriverhaven.com

It is important to note that the home is all one level inside. One main reason our guests rent this home is it is more suited for their family members whom have trouble going up and down indoor stair cases or have trouble getting around by themselves. Bedroom 3 on the floor plans was built to better suit guests in walkers and wheelchairs as the door frame is wider, the room is larger and features 2 queen size beds and a TV. The bathroom right outside Bedroom 3 was also built to better suit walkers, etc as there is a large walk in shower with a built in tile seat to the side.

All 7 bedrooms are fully private rooms plus there is a loft bedroom that over looks the Living and Dining Rooms which has 16 foot high ceilings. The loft is usually used for older kids and teens.

Home Highlights:

- All one level inside

- Pet Friendly!

- Large Stocked Modern Kitchen which is fully open to the Dining and Living Room areas

- Large Fireplace/Outdoor Fire Pit

- Gas BBQ Grill

- Large Pool and Hot tub

- 130in Projector Screen (Perfect for watching sports or a having a family movie night)

- Xbox One for the kids. (Few games and 2 wireless controllers)

- Wifi throughout the home

- River water level is always constant even during a drought

- 178ft of Private Water Front Property

- Private Dock along the river

- Huge Shaded Yard (Great for outdoor family games)

- Public Boat Ramp is on 4 minutes away

- Located outside the city limits only 12 minutes from New Braunfels and 16 minutes to Gruene, TX

- 16 minutes to Schlitterbahn Water Park

- Jet Ski Rental Service in the area that will deliver to the home

- Tubing Shuttle Services will pick you up from the home and bring you back

Whether you want to fish, swim, boat or just take in the view from the deck, it’s all here!

About Darius

Our guests comments and reviews best describe what you can expect from our homes however here is some background on us and how've we've grown. We renovated and opened our first vacation rental next door in 2003 with the goal to offer the best vacation rental in the area. Each year I invested the profits into the home to offer more and more amenities and features each year. The home has grown to become one of the most successful vacation rentals in the area with a large percentage of our guests being repeat customers. We are often approached by other homeowners to manage their properties however most are not willing to invest the time and money it takes to live up to our standards and we prefer to keep our full attention on our own two vacation rentals to give our guests the best experience and our full time commitment.

Although location, amenities, layout, yard and river are all major factors, our crew is devoted to assure a no hassle pleasant stay for all of our guests. We often hear guests say their vacation has left them with wonderful life long memories. We understand maintenance, upkeep and preparations are imperative to maintaining a trouble free vacation at our homes and should any issue arise, we are immediately taking action to resolve any issue guests may have. One of our reviews mentions we truly have a passion for what we do. This holds true for our entire crew. When everyone involved truly cares about our guests experience, the end result assures guests will have a great and worry free experience.

Third time back!

  • 5 of 5

We are multiple time renters as we love this place! The home owner is a pleasure to work with and the booking process is quick and easy. He's constantly tweaking things here and there to make each stay better than the last one. The home and the property are beautiful! Such attention to detail. We've already rolled over our deposit to new new dates we've booked for next year!

Great space for seniors who can't do stairs

  • 3 of 5

We had my 89 year old mother who can't do steps and she loved the house. Her bedroom was close to the bathroom and she did not need to walk far to the living area. The large number of bedrooms accommodated 14 of us and the beds were comfortable, but lacked comforters. The outdoor space was inviting and my brother enjoyed fly fishing from the dock. The most disappointing aspect was the dim lighting throughout the house. All the light bulbs were low wattage and the bedrooms were especially dark. Also, the sink kept backing up and had to be plunged constantly. The stove top made cooking difficult. The owner did come immediately to fix several things when we called. Also, the property said New Braunfels, but it is in Seguin.

Map

Schlitterbahn and upper river tubing area is 16 minutes from the house. Previous years Rock'n R River rides has offered shuttle service to and from the house to the upper river tubing areas. ( We assume they will offer this service for 2013 ) Bella Luna Shuttle service offers transportation for large groups to most any location day or night. ( located 10 minutes from Bandit Golf course on the river) Timed with a stop watch at 4 pm travel time to New Braunfels visitors center by IH 35 @ highway 725 was 12 minutes. Gruene 16 minutes. Schlitterbahn / Rock'n R River Rides 16 minutes.
