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.

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.

Awesome Guadalupe River Frontage

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! The location was absolutely awesome! The river frontage was beautiful; we think the best in New Braunfels! We were able to tube from up river straight to the condo; how cool is that! The condo was clean & lovely & had great amenities. I have already recommended this condo to a friend. We will also return in the future; that's how much we loved it!

You have found yourself a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying--GO MOLLY! GO MOLLY!!! Ok, had get that out there first. Not that she needs a cheering section. Her genuine care for the people that stay in her property says it all. She is what makes this property work and why everyone lauds their stay. She provides a quality product at a fair price and couples it with WORLD CLASS customer service. GO MOLLY, GO MOLLY!!!

Now for the property. Let's just say my wife and I normally take two "mini vaca's" (as she call them) every year. My wife can drive a person (me) crazy with her attention to detail and research finding the perfect accommodations. She found this property. If your like my wife, please stop now. You have found a place to stay! This place is all of what everyone else heralds. It is truly a place that complements your plans. Shoot my teenage daughter and her friend wanted to stay at the condo instead of going tubing, to Schlitterbaun, or any of the gazillion things to do in San Antonio! They were mesmerized by all the deer, the pool/hot tubs, river access, and the fact they had their very own room away from their "Parental Consent Group" (me and her mom). Little does she know, me and mom planned it that way.

If you want a centralized place to stay that's quiet, very nice, clean as a whistle, and a place you look forward to going to at the end of the day, then Molly's condo is for you.

Perfect Family Getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off, you will not be disappointed in this property. Molly has made sure that you have every single thing that you need for a wonderful stay, even extra bedding and blankets and pillows, even yard games in the master closet, as well as board games in the living room. And all of the dishes and silverware you'll need--even a spice rack! The condo is immaculate when you walk in, the furnishings beautiful. There are a whole herd of deer right outside the window, and off the patio, that my children stayed enamored with the entire time. And--like all of the other reviewers have said--you have the best patio on the property and you're steps away from a beautiful pool and the Guadalupe River.

The condo is located so close to EVERYTHING. My husband went downtown (a 5-minute trip AT MOST) to the many fabulous bakeries and restaurants every morning to procure us German pastries and coffees. One morning he went to 3. And you're close to amazing German places to eat, as well as right across the street from Schlitterbahn. We also visited the Natural Bridge Caverns, which wasn't even a bad drive at all. One of the days we just walked across the street to the park and played in the water and fished. The kids had a ball and that was completely free!!!

I really can't say enough about this place. I'm so happy that I found it. This was our first family vacation EVER (other than visiting family), and we plan on being back. Who knew we'd love tubing the Comal so much?! And having a great place to stay makes it even that much better!!!

Thank you, Molly, for all that you do to make this place so homey. Book it, people.

Owner's Response: Kenzi, What a wonderful review! Thank you so much for describing the little details that helped make your stay special. I love New Braunfels too- the rivers, antiquing, shops, food! I still have to pinch myself that we get the live there! I'm so glad your kids loved the wildlife & just playing in the water! I know you planned enriching activities to make your family vacation really memorable & fun. We feel privileged you trusted Bella Vista on the Guadalupe to be part of your family's story & hope all of you will treasure the happy time you shared for years to come. Thank YOU for being our guest.
