Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first stay in Waterwheel G103. Last year we stayed in the 3 bedroom next door. We were very pleased with G103 and had room for our family of 12. The condo was very clean. The property management staff were always accommodating and answered any of my questions I had for them. We discovered the coffee pot was not working and had to go out and buy one. But property manager reimbursed us for it and we left it in the condo. Was kind of confusing about the satellite/cable service. It seemed to be cable downstairs and satellite upstairs. It would have been better if there were the same in both rooms. We weren't upstairs very much and that's where the satellite service was. Not much could be watched downstairs on cable only. The other rooms did not have TVs. We brought a small TV and used it for DVD/games in the kids room. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessary things except pot holders. Would be helpful if those could be added. We cooked a lot while we were there so we used all the things in the kitchen. Also, the bedroom with the bunk beds did not have a rail on one of the top bunks. We managed, but would not be good for small children to be up on top. We loved staying there though. The patio is a large size and is plenty of space for our large group. The breeze was always blowing through the patio and the hall area. It was very pleasant. The grounds are very beautiful. Our children always enjoy the grassy area so they can play whatever sports games they like. The pool is enjoyable, but always a little on the warm side. We enjoy the closeness of Schlitterbaun and the river.

Great Getaway in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 people in our group and had more than enough room for everyone.

The condo was very clean, had everything we needed, and in a great location. It has 2 awesome balconies facing out to the green space where yon can see the pool (but luckily not so close that you can hear it), the river past the pool, and sometimes you're lucky enough to see cute deer out eating. It is also a great location in the city, just down the street from Schlitterbahn, a really short drive to Gruene or tubing on the Comal. One evening we even walked down to Rheas Ice Cream (highly recommended).

It was a really great 2 days and can't wait to come back again.

My family, friends and I stayed at this condo over the 4th of July holiday. This place is awesome - so close to Schlitterbahn you can walk! The property has an awesome pool and accessing the river to float is a breeze! There were plenty of comfy beds for everyone and the place was clean. The balcony is super roomy, and a great place to have dinner and drinks after a long day on the water. The dining room is also big enough to play beer pong ;)

I'd recommend this place to anyone!

Only thing with the amount of people we had it was very hot and house never got cold. However we turned on ceiling fans and used the box fans that were provided and made due. Would have been better to have the house lower than 74.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback, Samantha. We enjoyed working with you over the months to answer all of your questions and help you get checked in. We are sorry that you could not get the A/C below 74 degrees. It is the same setup like most hotel rooms where you have to hold the up or down arrow down until the temperature starts flashing. Once flashing, you can adjust the temperature. I don't believe it will go lower than 68 degrees. It does have a timer on it and will adjust back to 74 degrees in the morning. We also hope you enjoyed the brand new dining room table and chairs. We replaced them the day before you arrived. :)

This place is amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had such a great stay here! The condo was very well kept with new living room furniture, fresh paint, and very clean. There was more than enough room for all of us to stay comfortably. This is a great place for a weekend getaway with just a few people or a bigger group, I would definitely recommend it!

First off... this review will only allow me to select "I loved it!" My vote would definitely be "Not really." We live in Issaquah, WA, and rented another smaller condo at Waterwheel a couple of years ago. It was lovely and well maintained. This condo is pretty sad. The entire condo is filthy. The cleaners obviously don't take much pride in their work and only hit the high spots. The ceiling fans have not been cleaned in a very long time. My daughter tried to clean the fan blades and could not get all the soil off. The blinds are all bent and broken. Most cannot be opened throughout the condo. There are no safety items in the showers. We bought a bath mat, but some grab bars would have been nice. Black mold was growing in all three showers. The toilet in the upstairs hallway leaks. The large, front burner on the range does not work. Mattresses have no covers and the downstairs mattress is stained with what looks like urine. Pillows are also stained and very lumpy. Yuk! The pictures on vrbo and in other places are false advertising. There are two different sofas and love seats, this one is red, and the other is leather. There is no picture of the unit as it is now. They have been replaced with one sofa with a lounge on one end. It is still ridiculous for a condo that sleeps 10 (really 11 because of a trundle) only has comfortable seating for three. When I requested additional seating, I was told that the owners are having trouble finding chairs because they want to purchase quality furniture, and that I didn't request additional seating when i reserved the condo. What??? I was also told that I was putting them between a rock and a hard place with their owners. They finally provided one more chair, and we had to bring in uncomfortable patio chairs to have enough seating. The furniture on the 2nd floor balcony needs replaced. There is also an active wasp nest on 2nd floor balcony. I was appalled by the lack of customer service for this unit. The managing company,, should send their employees for training on how to treat customers. A little time and $$ would turn this unit into a decent place to stay.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that your stay in our condo was not up to your standards. We take pride in updating the furniture, linens and bedding every year or two so that it is current with styles and cleanliness. We do agree that a lot of the pictures on VRBO are very outdated with old furniture that has been replaced a few times. We have updated the pictures accordingly. We are quite shocked that you were disappointed in having a brand new couch that was delivered only days before your arrival! We ordered a complimentary chair and ottoman from Pottery Barn, but it was back ordered until after your stay. The My New Braunfels Vacation staff worked diligently to find a spare piece of furniture for us to borrow from another unit in order for you to have more seating. This chair was delivered in a timely fashion. In regards to the space, the three and four bedroom condos at Waterwheel do not have large living rooms like the smaller units do. With more bedrooms we have less living space. We do the best we can with the space we have to accommodate seating for our guest. You are the first person to complain about this to us and we apologize, but there is no way to have couch seating for 10 adults. Our condo advertises sleeping for 10 guests and there is seating for 13 in the living room/kitchen/dining area. Per records from our property manager, you only contacted them about the seating, wasp nest and leaking toilet. The wasp nest and toilet were fixed within 24hrs. Jessica even made a personal visit when the chair was delivered and asked if you had any other concerns and you made no mention of the cleanliness, missing covers or the stove. We actually had a professional cleaning company come out the week before your stay and steam/seal the floors and patio. If the condo was 'filthy,' you should have called and we would have had the cleaning crew come back out and clean again and bring mattress covers. At the onset of your review, we immediately inquired about the mattress covers with the next tenants and they said they are on all of the beds. Thank you for the alert about the pillows and the 2nd story patio furniture, we will see to it that they are replaced immediately! Sincerely, Brandon & Ashley
