About Cathy Estrada

We have lived in New Braunfels for more than 20 years and have always loved the Comal River. A good friend and real estate agent called us as soon as this house came on the market. One walk through and we knew we wanted this property. What a blessing from God.

Cathy Estrada purchased this house in 2012

Why Cathy Estrada chose New Braunfels

We purchased the house because of its ideal location!

It's the only house on the Comal River located above the famous tube chute and across from Hinman Island (Landa Park). River activity is calm and the view of the river is simply beautiful !!!

What makes this house unique

The property features 330 feet of lanscaped grass and sidewalks with three swim outs from the Comal River. Enjoy the hammock or just BBQ on the patio. It is in walking distance to Historic Downtown New Braunfels, Landa Park, Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Wurstfest. Texas Tube Rental is next door.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in cabin 405 last week and the home was simply perfect. We had a group of 16 stay the week with room to spare. I never felt we were on top of each other. The house was clean and well equipped. We had a wonderful time. We would also like to thank you for your prompt and professional assistance from the time I made an inquiry about the home to the day we arrived. You were awesome and if we ever need assistance with a cabin again I will be giving you a call. Have a great summer.

Perfect Spot / Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

The house was all I hoped it would be. When my 22 year old daughter arrived, she walked in through the garage, to the basement/game room and came up the stairs into the kitchen and said..."this is legit, mom". And that was the opening to our family vacation. The ending comment was...."I don't want to leave" - which was said b all of my adult children. The property is beautiful, well stocked and the management was always helpful and friendly. I have 8 adult children, but only 5 of them and their spouse were able to come. We enjoy being together and this home made it a very special family reunion over the top special. *One note....the refrigerators will take a long time to cool off once you load them. Not a super big deal at all. Just be patient.

Incredible house on the Comal River

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on family vacation and had a blast!. Truly the best place to stay on the Comal River. City park directly across the river and you are just up river from the famous "tube shute". The house is decorated nicer than my home. Stay here, you will be happy you did.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my 40th birthday. It was to be a weekend with close friends and just hanging out. It far exceeded my expectations. The house was perfect! The location was perfect. Even though this house is part of a little community you feel as though you are all alone. At one point I felt we might be too loud for our neighbors so I went over there to be neighborly and they said they could not hear us. The location on the Comal was great. It was perfect if you wanted to do a leasurely float or just hang out on the patio and enjoy the views. We were there in June and everyone knows the TX heat is miserable. The patio has several ceiling fans which kept us comfortable. The bedrooms were great and the sheets were so cozy. I am a sheet snob. The house had everything we needed for cooking and entertaining. The downstairs is not as 'nice' but served its purpose well. I would defninitely recommend this home for any large gathering you have. Very pleased!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at Serenity Retreat in October and

December of 2009, and found the entire experience relaxing,

rejuvenating, and restful. The setting along the peaceful waters of

the Comal River combined with the tall sycamore trees and lush flowers

and vegetation inspire one to curl up and read a good book on the

porch or jump in and float down the meandering river.

This house is perfectly appointed with beautifully functional rooms

decorated with lovely accessories and all the necessities of home. I

highly recommend this delightful setting to anyone wanting to get away

and forget the stress of daily life.
