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.

Accommodating host and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Guadalupe Getaway was absolutely wonderful!! Our host was so accommodating and helpful from beginning to end. You could really tell he cares and put time into making sure people enjoy the property by making maps and directions for tubing and explaining everything. The property is BEAUTIFUL! Everything you could need: pool, hot tub, river access! The house has a unique layout and was really cool. We had ample space for 6 people. Had a great time, thanks Reed!

Beautiful private home retreat in New Braunfels

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Guadalupe Getaway on the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels. The house felt so comfortable, and had everything you would or could ever need. We truly felt like we were home away from home. It is within minutes of Schlitterbahn, Gruene, and walking distance to so many places in New Braunfels.

The views from the elevated deck are breathtaking. We saw a couple of Barred Owls one morning, a red cardinal daily, and many geese and ducks flying and landing on the beautiful river below.

Having your own private pool and hot tub truly made this property both memorable, and a creator of wonderful memories for everyone in our family. Our kids did not mind the pool temperature hadn’t quite made it out of the spring season; though an 85 degree Saturday afternoon did make it quite inviting for the adults as well. The hot tub was a perfect way to end the day, whether or not we went out and about in New Braunfels.

The house is close to everything in New Braunfels, and yet offers a nice private retreat that feels like your further out from the city. You can walk across the street a block or so and do a nice 30-45 min float partially on the Comal, then down a bit on the Guadalupe and your back at the house.

We can’t wait for our next stay!

Great House, Great Location, Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were lucky enough to stay here for Spring Break this year. The house is perfectly located, has everything you need, and oh yeah....That View from the backyard!. As a fellow VRBO / Homeaway owner I know how hard it is to maintain properties, communicate clearly with guests, and provide an excellent experience for travelers, fortunately for me and my group, Reed does as well. Thanks a million, we will be back!

Very clean, spacious, functional and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you will need to enjoy a relaxing getaway. Comfortable, spacious surroundings that serve both fit and function. The property offers wonderful views of the river and surrounding area. Wildlife including deer, a variety of birds and waterfowl are frequent visitors along the river. The water is very clear and fish are easily visible. Our stay was during the off season for "toobing" but we enjoyed watching kayakers and fishermen enjoy the Guadalupe River. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets are easily seen from a spacious two level deck structure. New Braunfels is a very interesting area with historical significance and offers museums, art, antiquing, parks, trails and shopping. Within a few minutes of the property are many dining and retail establishments to meet your every need. The property is in a quiet area with minimal traffic. We found the owner to be most gracious and accommodating. We definitely recommend this property for a relaxing and enjoyable experience.

This is truly a "getaway" property!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great about this home ... pool, hot tub, river, sundecks, Jacuzzi bathtub, etc. It's located centrally for all the things to see and do in and around New Braunfels. It was a bit cold for us to toob the river but all the necessary items were provided in case you wanted to - - that is a plus in my book! Since we are local to the area, our goal was to pretty much stay at the house the entire time and relax, which we were able to do!! The house was clean and spacious. The owner is friendly and professional as well as very helpful. Highly recommended!!

Beautiful Property!

  • 4 of 5

Our party of six (three couples) stayed at this house for a beautiful wedding weekend in Gruene. The location is AMAZING, right on the river with a private pool, hot tub, deck, toobing supplies, and barbecue. There are two bedrooms and an office with a trundle bed and an additional trundle bed in the master. Our stay was overall GREAT. I deduct a star only for the exhaustive list of rules which include -- lying to the neighbors if asked who you are and keeping the A/C at 72 or higher (the master bedroom gets hot). You will even find some conflicting rules between the email of rules, the contract of rules, the rules in the guest book which is mandatory to read upon arrival, and the rules posted in every room. I am happy to say we complied with all the rules and avoided penalties and charges.
