The house is located in the McQueeney area on a 150 foot span of the Guadalupe River. Downtown New Braunfels is only 12 minutes away. Rock'n R River Rides offers shuttle service to and from the house to the upper tubing area. There is public access nearby for launching boats and Jet-skis. This portion of the river is constant level. The water level has remained constant throughout this extended lack of rain fall.

A comfortable shaded outdoor setting is provided with a 70 foot lighted fishing pier/Boat Dock, a large upper deck overlooking the river and an additional patio with gas grill. The large yard is shaded by huge 100 plus year old pecan trees and is perfect for outdoor gatherings.

The house is a 2 story house built on the side of a hill overlooking the river. The upper level is ground level to the street and circle driveway. It includes three bedrooms, one has a king-size bed, half bath and color TV with Cable. The second has a King Bed and a Queen-size bed and a full bath, the third bedroom has a King-size bed and an additional full bathroom in the hallway. The large kitchen is open to the main living area that overlooks the river with a panoramic view.

The lower level is ground level to the river and back yard. It sleeps ten, 2 of the 3 bedrooms have king beds, the other is a Queen size bed. Lower level also has a full-size kitchen and a full bathroom. It is complete with a great view of the river from the Hot Tub located in its main living area.

The house totals 6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths and has complete kitchens in both the upper and lower level of the house. The house can comfortably sleep 14 people in private bedrooms and sleep an additional 4 people on futon sofa's that open up into full size beds. One of the futon sofa beds is in the bar area which does provide a mostly private sleeping area.

The house can comfortably sleep 22 people in high quality beds. ( King Beds are over $3,000 each). 4 additional people can sleep on sofa beds, plus 1 person can sleep on each of the 3 full size leather sofas.

Both houses combined create a large vacation home offering 10 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, 3 kitchens, large deck, patio, 70' pier over the river and a indoor hot tub.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Although this section is intended to be about the home owner, our reviews describe myself far better then anything I can say here. River Haven is actually more about the team of us who work together with the goal of having all guests completely enjoy there stay at the house. It has been my experience that even the greatest of houses if not properly taken care of can adversely effect your vacation. With a house and yard so large, high demand for rentals and a passion for providing a great experience for all of those who vacation here, it takes a team of us working together to maintain our high standards. A group of 4 of us work to accomplish this goal. Each of us truly have a passion for what we do. 3 of the 4 of us live close by and try to remain on call in the event anything whatsoever is requested by any of the guests staying at the house.We work hard to assure each guest arrives to a picture perfect setting, both inside and out. We listen closely to any suggestions guest have and immediately address any issues that may arise. We put a lot of thought into any conveniences we can add or improve upon. And we try to offer significant improvements each year so that returning guests always arrive to find that things just keep getting better. Please take the time to read our reviews, they truly define who we are, what you can expect, and the accuracy of how we present the property. Our links below rates are a great way to understand floor plans, layout and to see 150+ pictures. Please feel free to ask any question you may have.

Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels:
I was living in Austin and a drought had effected the lake levels. I heard that the lake area's of the Guadalupe River were constant level and were not effected by the drought. I traveled here one weekend to ride my jet ski. I was amazed by the beauty of the river/ lake area. The people were so friendly and I found myself not wanting to ever return back home to Austin. I started looking into purchasing a home along the river in this area and moved here a couple months later. After 20 months of remodeling the house, it simply became more then I could financially handle. So this began the nightly rentals of the house. Over the following years I would ask guests renting the house there opinions of the house and for there suggestions as to any improvements that could be made. Each year I invested the profits into making improvements with the goal of having the nicest vacation rental house in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is designed, decorated and laid out to meet the needs of the guests. Additionally most water front houses are very close together with neighbors right next to you. The average lot size seems to often be about 40 foot of water front. This house has 150 feet of waterfront and nearly an acre of land. While sitting on the main deck you simply feel as though you have full privacy. There are only 3 houses nearby. In many areas the neighbors hate being next to a vacation rental and will often complain and fight to close the vacation rental down. The neighbors near our rental houses are very nice and respectful to guests. Also I live in the area, should any issues arise or assistance be needed, I am usually available and can be of assistance within a short period of time. To maintain our high standard and commitment to the houses and rentals, this is our full time jobs. Carlos Carranza, Denise Shawn and Jason Angelo work full time to help handle the work load. Combined we average well over 120 hours a week doing yard work, cleaning, upkeep, laundry and office work for our 2 houses. It is our goal to keep everything looking and functioning like new.
