About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

"Bella Vista on the Guadalupe" is an inviting two bedroom, two bath condominium in gorgeous Waterwheel Resort. Conveniently located at ground level, you’ll enjoy easy accessibility and the panoramic views from the most private end unit balcony in the entire complex!

Pictured here is our winter scenery, which is brimming with wildlife. You can gaze at the peaceful lawn and tree-lined river views from the expanded first floor patio or stroll down to the river for fishing, daydreaming, or to dangle your toes. Bella Vista is freshly designed in a cozy Coffeehouse atmosphere, complete with a wireless high-speed connection for your laptop. You'll want to call Bella Vista on the Guadalupe your home away from home.

Perfect for a winter retreat or extreme fun in the Summer. In warm weather, you may want to start your float upriver and drift on down to the best gem on the Guadalupe! See our calendar for available dates!

The pool and hot tub area are in a private setting for year round enjoyment. Take advantage of one of the eight picnic tables and charcoal grills amidst the expansive lawn. There is plenty of room for running and playing, reading and catching some rays, all within view from your balcony. The towering pecan trees (help yourself to the pecans) and massive cypress trees line the river’s edge. It’s just beautiful!

The home is fully stocked with all your basic kitchen needs, all appliances including a dishwasher and microwave, three cable TVs with DVDs, Stereo with MP3 capability, fine linens & plenty of soft towels. You'll be surprised by all the little extras, including lawn games, board games, iron & board, hair dryer, blender, crock pot. There is also a new full sized washer and dryer. Bella Vista comfortably sleeps six with two luxurious new Queen beds, a Queen sleeper sofa and a Twin sleeper sofa. We also provide a queen airbed to expand your sleeping options (not for over 6 guests total.)

Enjoy the beach style pool (heated in the winter) and two deluxe hot tubs. One Hot Tub is reserved for adults only. Our very fun pool has bubbling fountains and shallow area for the little ones and is situated adjacent to the other community Hot Tub (shown) with a small Waterfall feature. An additional two hot tubs and pool with premium landscaping & design have just been completed behind the unit, which are also available for your enjoyment. Ask about our website with more photos and info.

You’ll be walking distance from world-famous Schlitterbahn Water Park (only .4 miles away) and less than one mile from Comal River put-in, or downtown New Braunfels. There are plenty of tube rental outfits to choose from on either the Comal or Guadalupe Rivers. Check out the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce website for current event and more area information. Try fishing from your own riverbank or the nearby Cypress Bend Park, which has a playground for the kids. Visit our awesome Public Library, numerous area museums and antique shops. Other area attractions include Historic Gruene, Texas (only a few miles away) for live Music, great food, and quaint shopping. For avid shoppers, either Tanger Outlet Mall or the Forum Shopping Center are within 20 minutes drive. Both San Antonio and Austin are easy drives but you may want to explore the lovely Hill Country towns of Wimberly and Fredricksburg if you plan an extended stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful property very well maintained, clean, with a great location. Facilities are a great bonus, and I would encourage enjoying them during the stay. We were welcomed to our rental with wildlife friends waiting within yards from our door. Three deer were frequent visitors, along with a special appearance from a red fox. It was nice to have them, and enjoy a fenced patio to watch safely! Really nice relaxing environment.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

New Braunfels was halfway for my daughters and myself to meet for Mother's Day. We were wanting a relaxing place to hang out together but did not want to be stuck in a hotel room. The Condo was beautifully decorated and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances if you chose to cook. We enjoyed hanging out at the pool and hot tub. Although we felt it was a bit cold to be tubing during our stay it was very evident this location would be great to also take advantage of tubing down the river. The grounds were well maintained and we enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the squirrels and deer wander around the property. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a place to stay and finds the typical hotel room confining.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our ten days so much. Everything was in wonderful shape with plenty of clean towels. The location is perfect for us with adult children in Austin and Houston, not so far that they couldn't spend time with us and far enough that we did not need to do city driving. (We let them drive us to Austin and back for Thanksgiving.) My little grandson was thrilled to see the deer every day and to have plenty of running room outside. Now...if you could just have some effect on the quality of food in local restaurants..... :-) Thank you so much for having a great vacation home available, convenient and beautifully maintained.
