The GUADALUPE GETAWAY is a beautiful house with an amazing view and lots of windows located on the Guadalupe River! The house also has a swimming pool, hot tub and a wonderful deck!

New Braunfels is the city of two rivers. You can go tubing or kayaking and enjoy the beauty of the Comal and Guadalupe rivers. The Comal River is known as “the shortest river in Texas”. This two mile river is crystal clear and a constant 68 degrees year round. The Guadalupe is scenic, wonderful and provides a fantastic recreation / fishing experience.

The GUADALUPE GETAWAY has an ideal location on the river. It allows for one of the longest floats on either the Comal River or the Guadalupe River. The river area next to the house also offers one of the best areas for swimming and splashing in the refreshing waters.

Inside the GUADALUPE GETAWAY you will be treated to the ultimate in modern relaxation living. Our objective is to provide a light and airy environment with natural “green” products while affording you to the comforts of modern sophistication. The house has a unique design. The architect that designed this house went on to design many wonderful and famous houses in south Texas.

At the entry you will be greeted by lovely walnut floors and lively natural colors that come from the warm glow of the sun. The bedrooms are simple but elegant. The master bedroom has a King bed and the guest room has a queen bed. There is a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a twin/ trundle in the study/3rd bedroom. Please note that the study/3rd bedroom is not completely private. You have to pass through this area when going to the master bedroom.

The master bathroom will surprise you with the double Jacuzzi tub and the combination of natural pebble tile and beautiful emerald marble. The kitchen will invite the entire family to gather around with its tasteful combination of stainless, granite and wood beautifully highlighted with modern lighting. The giant windows in the living room provide the feel of the outside meshing with the inside.

You'll love the outside! The house is in a U shape around a beautiful swimming pool. At the end of the U is an amazing two level deck. From the bottom level of the deck to the improved area on the river there is a spiral staircase with 50 steps. Yes, it's a long way down! At the banks of the river, there are nice improvements including concrete and stairs so it's really convenient to enjoy the cool water of the Guadalupe River.

The GUADALUPE GETAWAY is also located near the Schlitterbahn Water Park, a 65-acre mega complex, voted America's #1 Water Park for the past six years!

It is within walking distance of downtown New Braunfels--and only five blocks from the 100-year-old Naeglin's Bakery!

Restful New Braunfels is a popular vacation destination. Besides the Guadalupe and Comal Rivers, it is known for its Wurstfest, antique shopping, Landa Park, Landa Park Golf Course, delicious German Cuisine, great Texas BBQ, and many fantastic restaurants. One of my favorites is Huisache Grill which is only seven blocks from the GUADALUPE GETAWAY!

You are limited to parking three cars at the house. If you have additional cars, contact me for more information.

BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR. We do want the GUADALUPE GETAWAY to be a family friendly place. If you are a group of young people, please have some consideration for the neighbors and the families with young children. Someday, you may have children too. Behave as you would want the people around your future children to behave. If you are a family with children and have never tubed the Comal or Guadalupe River – I have some words of advice for you. First come during the week. The crowds are not as bad and the river is wonderful and pretty! Second, if you do have to come during the weekend – go tubing early! If you get in the water before 10 am, the river will not be so crowded.

5*****STAR Review-Guadalupe Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our weekend getaway at this rental property was perfect! The owner, Reed is accommodating and over all a cool guy. He worked with me and my guest on everything to make sure we enjoyed his rental. From a personal tour of this FABULOUS Guadalupe Getaway, to tips and advice on floating the river and the local area.

This house is a DREAM! Leaving brought a tear to my eye... it is decorated, fully stocked kitchen, lovely linens for the bed and soft towels for the house and pool. The house is clean, modern, hip and relaxing. The Guadalupe Getaway has something for everyone. Private entrance to the river, pool, hot tub, stunning deck, tubing around the corner. Too much water and sun, relax on the leather couch and watch a program on the big flat screen! The pictures of this house are great, but you MUST see it in person! My group all stated they want to re-book in a few months and only RETURN TO THE GUADALUPE GETAWAY! I can not recommend this house more (and I rent riverhouse every year)! We will be back!

Perfect house on the river!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 people to come float the river for a birthday celebration. This house was perfect. The owners of the house were so nice and acomadating. Beautiful clean home. Great amenities and lots of room. A swimming pool and spa. A upper and lower deck. Loved that we could walk down from the house to the river. The house was close to Gruene and downtown New Braunfels. We are definitely going to be coming back to stay.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 4th of July in this home. It had everything we needed. Kitchen was fully stocked and we utilized the new bbq pit daily. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and especially the location. Loved being able to float and get off at the house. Thank you Reed!

Great quiet place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the neighborhood float down the river. It was great to have the tubes and inflator already there and not have to bring my own. Kitchen had what we needed. Bring plenty of extra towels. The location was very convenient also.

Stunning house on the River

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a weekend girls trip. The house accommodated six people perfectly (with room to spare). The location on the river was awesome, as were the amenities including the pool, hot tub and upper deck. The house had everything we needed and was super clean and very well decorated. I highly recommend this house and look forward to returning.
