Property description

LAST AVAILABLE SUMMER WEEKEND is August 28/29.

ALL RATES CALCULATED and referred to on the VRBO web site is only for ONE SIDE of the duplex for eight guests or less. To reserve a SUMMER WEEKEND (May-August) you must book both sides of the duplex. When you book both sides for summer weekends, then it is double the price listed WITH A $200 discount.

The FLOOR PLAN for the ENTIRE house is as follows:
2 bedrooms have 1 queen bed each, 2 lofts have 1 queen bed each and 2 bedrooms have 4 twin beds each set-up on bunk beds. There is a queen sleeper/sofa in each of the 2 living rooms and of course there are 2 complete kitchens and 2 nice bathrooms. You can rent only ONE-SIDE for half of the above listed rooms/beds/baths/greatrooms/etc.

The Rio Raton Duplex is at 6780 River Road outside the city limits of New Braunfels. We are directly at Second Crossing.

This part of the GUADALUPE RIVER is the prime tubing section of the river. New Braunfels silly beer restriction laws DO NOT APPLY anywhere on this area of the Guadalupe.

I have another duplex located about one mile UP river called the Guadalupe River Duplex (VRBO #452715). That duplex and all information, description and booking calendar is on it’s own listing on VRBO (#452715). If the calendar is all booked for the this Duplex, then search for the Guadalupe River Duplex and check it’s calendar for availability.

They are both duplexes, therefore the calendar on the VRBO web site will not reflect if 1 side is already booked and I don’t mark it so if one side is still available. IF the calendar shows it available, then at least 1 side is probably still open.

If both sides of THIS duplex are booked then of course there is no availability here and I try to keep that up to date and indicated on this calendar.

For precise available dates PLEASE Google the name, “Rio Raton Duplex” or “Guadalupe River Duplex” and either one should appear on FIRST Google page.

See my own website for better information. My TWO DUPLEXES are called the Rio Raton Duplex and the Guadalupe River Duplex. They are both RIVERFRONT on the MAIN TUBING part of the Guadalupe River.

There are tube, raft, and other rental outfitters within walking distance of either duplex. Although most of our guests float and/or tube the Guadalupe, Schlitterbahn is close by in New Braunfels and Fiesta Texas is a short drive to San Antonio as well as Natural Bridge Caverns, Wild Animal Park and the “Dirty Jobs” famous New Braunfels Snake Farm.

The Tanger Outlet Mall is 25 minutes away in San Marcos, There is Gruene Hall just down the road in Gruene, Texas as well as the monthly Gruene Market Days and Wimberly, Texas.

The Rio Raton Duplex is right at the “second crossing” on River Road about halfway to Canyon Lake. The lake has numerous parks and boat ramps for boats and jet skis.

Location

The Rio Raton Duplex is at 6780 River Road outside the city limits of New Braunfels right at the Second Crossing bridge.

IT IS A DUPLEX - Most of the AUTOMATED PRICING is for one-side only. Summer WEEKENDS and weekly stays are reserved for people that need BOTH sides for 16 or less. You can reserve ONE-SIDE (or both) for the 4-weeknight rental period.

We are directly across the river from Roy's Rental and Tube Outfitter and 1/2 mile down river from the Lone Star Float House and Bezdek's Rentals.

This part of the GUADALUPE RIVER is the prime tubing section of the river. I have another duplex located about one mile UPRIVER called the Guadalupe River Duplex. That duplex and all information, description and booking calendar is on it's own listing VRBO#452715. If the calendar is all booked for the Rio Raton Duplex, then search for the Guadalupe River Duplex and check it's calendar

They are both duplexes, therefore the calendar on the VRBO web site will not reflect if 1-side is already booked and I don't mark it booked if one side is still available. If the calendar shows it available then 1-side is probably still open.

If both sides are booked at this duplex then I mark it as 'reserved'. Check the Guadalupe River Duplex for availability there.

For more precise available dates PLEASE Google the name, “Rio Raton Duplex” or “Guadalupe River Duplex” either one should appear on first Google page. I try to show all available dates and sides available on that web site.

There are tube, raft, and other equipment outfitters within walking distance of either duplex. Although most of our guests float and/or tube the Guadalupe River, Schlitterbahn is close by in New Braunfels and Fiesta Texas is a short drive to San Antonio as well as Natural Bridge Caverns, Wild Animal Park and the “Dirty Jobs” famous New Braunfels Snake Farm.

The Tanger Outlet Mall is 30 minutes away in San Marcos. There is Gruene Hall just down the road in Gruene, Texas as well as the monthly Gruene Market Days. The Rio Raton Duplex is right at the “second crossing” bridge on River Road about halfway to Canyon Lake. The lake has numerous parks and boat ramps for boats and jet skis.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Lisa and Michael with long-time Guadalupe River floaters and friends Karen and Brad built the Rio Raton Duplex for the 2004 Summer season. We have enjoyed floating the Guadalupe and San Marcos Rivers since high school and then college in San Marcos. Now we are passing on that tradition to our kids.

Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels:
After too many Guadalupe River trips in substandard accommodations we decided to build our own first-class, RIVERFRONT property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Air Conditioning and a hot shower make a Guadalupe River trip complete. Pitch a house, not a tent.
