About Al Kay
We are semi-retired and enjoy spending time on the Lake with family, friends and grandchildren. We have lived in nearby San Antonio for the past 45 years where I am involved in the Insurance Business. Our roots go a long way back in New Braunfels where my great grandfather was the pastor of the First United Methodist Church from 1881 to 1886..
Al Kay purchased this House in 2000
Why Al Kay chose New Braunfels
There is so much to do in and near Historic New Braunfels. We are located on the edge of the scenic Texas Hill Country.
What makes this House unique
There are so many fun things to do nearby. The largest water park in the USA is located 2 miles away. Tubing the Guadalupe river is always popular in the summer. All the attractions of San Antonio are only a short drive away. Shopping at the largest outlet mall in Texas near San Marcos is only 20 Minutes away. Bring your boat or jetski and tie up at our dock. There is a boat launch located at the IH35 bridge.

4th of July
A very nice house located just out of downtown New Braunfels. We chose the location for a small family reunion and it suited our needs just fine.
Perfect for a large family
This place was perfect for the 12 of us. It had everything we needed, even a grill. The back deck is lovely! The water doesn’t come up to the deck/pier area right now due to water levels and the lower level was somewhat overgrown but we were there to float the river, not swim in the lake! The AC works almost TOO good, got cold very fast and stayed cold! Communication before check in was perfect and friendly. I had a few questions with no responses afterwards about checkout because there were no instructions but it was a holiday and I suppose the owner has their own like too ha! It was definitely worth it for us!
not up to par
was disappointed to find the living room ceiling fan, small fan in 2nd bedroom, and dishwasher didn't work. Sliding door to deck locks itself. Downstairs bath lock is finicky. Handicap bar in upstairs bath is not secure. Vent in kitchen above the stove needs cleaning, and so did the stairs to the dock. Hostile neighbor 2 doors down accused us of being on his property; we were on the concrete stacks at the end of the wood pier but there is no barrier.
Was expecting the typical prestine VRBO and this was not.
Our family stayed the whole week. Everything we needed was available. We cooked a lot with our stay. I had brought a few things from my kitchen not knowing what would be there, and really did not need it. Kitchen is truly stocked for your needs. The stove is a little tricky, the right side does not regulate the temp but was able to adjust. The water level was low so could not get in the water easily, which the owner did tell us about and offered to let us cancel with no fee. We were able to float in another location so really not a big deal for us.
Thanks for a wonderful place to stay. Our family has another vacation that we enjoyed.
This was the perfect place for our large group! Everyone had their own bed and it was super clean.
Everything about this property was excellent. Al was super helpful and easy to get a hold of.
