                                                            Amazing location!

                                                            Norman H.

                                                            This is an amazing rental location and house nestled in a bend of the Guadalupe River. We had a family reunion with five families who each had separate, spacious rooms. There are two large living areas that made family conversations easy. The house is close to historic Gruene and located in a quiet neighborhood. Maria, the owner, is warm and personable and accommodated us so graciously. When the weather turned cold, she brought by room heaters to ensure we were comfortable. There are kayaks and life jackets the kids and adults enjoyed using on the river. My daughter writes a lifestyle blog and plans to write about our family reunion and this wonderful house. We would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a place for children and adults to have an enjoyable week or weekend.

                                                            Excellent place to spend a relaxed cozy weekend

                                                            Abhijit D.

                                                            Great house, it has a fantastic view of the river. The pictures on the website are not of good quality and does not do the justice, it looks fantastic in person. The trees on the river banks are very big and provides an almost unreal dream like feeling when you sit under them. The house is in multiple level and looks so beautiful from outside. It is a very big house, we were a group of ~ 14 adults and 7 kids and we did not feel stuffy at all.

                                                            The property manager for the home is also very friendly and helpful. My friend lost his wallet, and they promptly searched for it and send it back to us.

                                                            Fun weekend getaway

                                                            Amy D.

                                                            The house is very eclectic. There were about 16 of us and yet we didn't feel cramped. There were deer in the yard everyday. Good getaway spot! Wish we would have been there in warmer month so we could have utilized the river front!

                                                            NatalieDallas, TX

                                                            We had such an amazing time at this home in New Braunfels. The location was perfect allowing our group to end our float at the house. The floating dock was also very useful and I noticed several other houses in the area did not have this amenity. Maria was a gracious host, answered all of our questions and even dropped by to say hello and make sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend staying here!!

                                                            Bi-Annual Family Vacation

                                                            Our family just spent our 9th Bi-Annual Family Vacation, here at Ms.Marie's amazing home. We ranged in age from 4 to 64, from bookworms to super sports. We really missed those who couldn't make it for whatever reason. Everyone cooked , washed dishes and hauled trash, and everyone laughed and talked and told stories and had such an amazing time!!

                                                            The house is set up perfect to set many together or just a couple for eating or chatting. We never even turned on a tv. The house is right on the water, with a dock that got a ton of use from us!. S'mores every night even though it was 95 degrees. The house was always wonderfully cool. We will be back!!

                                                            Jan H.

                                                            Wonderful for a family vacation. We had our 2 children and their families(total of 10 including us). Grandkids ranged in ages from 3 to 8. Each family could sleep on their own schedule without disturbing the other (this was GREAT!) Very relaxing and the grandkids enjoyed feeding deer and ducks that would come each morning. We even saw fire flies in the evening (hadn't seen those in years and we live in northwest of Fort Worth). The cypress trees are beautiful. Close to Gruene and Landa Park - something for everyone. Maria is very hospitable and is sincere in wanting you to enjoy your stay. We hope we get the opportunity to go back.
