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.

About Molly

We absolutely love New Braunfels & enjoy both Rivers year round. The condo is a favorite spot of ours. We are so delighted to share it with others!

Molly purchased this condo in 2005

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.

This property is so incredible I don't know where to start. We arrived late from a LONG drive on 1/1/18 and the property owner had everything ready and waiting for us. If location is important to you this is the place. The condo is a ground level unit on the end of the 1st bldg. It is very accessible to all the pools, hot tubs, the river running directly behind the condos, and other amenities on the property. We were greeted every morning and night by the 15+ deer roaming the property. The property is down the street from Schlitterbaun, a 15 minute walk to both Landa Park and their excellent golf course and downtown New Braunfels. There are numerous parks, eateries, bars, bakeries, etc. all within walking distance. You get the picture, right? Back to the condo. It was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped with everything you need to feel at home. Molly, the owner was extremely attentive and on top of any problems or concerns we had. The best referral I can give is that I would absolutely return and recommend it to my friends and family.

Highly recommend!!!

This condo was perfect, very clean, well stocked and conveniently located to everything. The corner balcony was very spacious and secluded. The property of the resort is well maintained, lots of space to play outdoor games or go for a walk to the pool or river. Looking forward to staying here again.

Great location, just the right size for our family of 5 (three generations)

  • 5 of 5

This condo is clean, well cared for, and conveniently located. The property is beautiful, with lots of green space and a lovely walk down to the pool, which was a big hit with our almost 3 year old grandson. Just past the pool is a peaceful river view. In the evening we saw deer grazing on the property also. Very special!

It was the perfect spot! You're not far from the comal, guadalupe or schlitterbahn!! Not to mention everything you need restaurants, gas stations, grocery store is all so close as well! The condo itself has everything you need too so no worries on bringing an extra load with you, which was very convenient. Plus the condo is on the corner so you don't have people all around you. I would definitely come back to say the least!

Our July vacay

Thank you for sharing your condo with us. We loved the key holder for the simple fact of not keeping up with it and allowing the others in our group access. We made some awesome memories at Bella Vista.
