This property features a Main house and Guest house which are a bundled deal.

The Main home is 2 stories built on the side of a hill overlooking the large yard and river. The upper level is ground level to the street and the circle driveway. The home features a large stocked kitchen which is open to the Main Living Room area that overlooks the river with a panoramic view. The Lower Level is ground level to the river, the large back yard and the outdoor fire pit. It is complete with a small kitchenette and great view of the river as well.

The Guest House right next to the 2 story Main house has 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and a small kitchenette along with it’s own concrete driveway.

Together both the Main and Guest house can comfortably sleep 22 guests on high quality beds. (King Beds are over $3,000 each). 25 Max. Both houses combined create a very large vacation home offering a total 10 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, 3 kitchens, large deck, patio, fire pit, a 70' pier over the river and 3 living room area's this property offers much privacy for larger groups to easily spread out.

The home is located directly on the Guadalupe River with over 150 ft of private waterfront property. It's yard is one of the largest yards you will find along the river and is fully shaded by 100 plus year old pecan trees and features landscape lighting through out the property for easy night time navigation. The patio on the back allows you to take in the wonderful river view. The patio is equipped with two patio tables, umbrellas and numerous chairs as well as a Gas BBQ Grill right outside the main Kitchen door

The home is located on a very private road with little to no traffic. There are 4 homes on the road all of which are vacation rentals and spread out from one another. One benefit is that live in home owners can grow tired of strangers arriving and departing constantly and can become rude and make you feel unwelcome in there neighborhood. With no real neighbors, no houses across the street and no houses across the river this is truly a unique area offering much privacy while still being close by to local stores and attractions. If you’d like please see our reviews for their impressions of the neighborhood and area and why they chose our homes. Please note Google maps/street view shows images 8 year old and long before any landscaping went in etc..Our own pictures are kept current and up to date. You can view even more pictures on our website at

One main reason our guests rent this home is that the first floor/street level of the Main house is all one level and has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms,1 half bathroom, direct access to the Main Kitchen, Living room and back Patio overlooking the large yard and river view. These features are perfect for guests who may need a walker to get around or have trouble with constant elevation changes. With almost everything they need all in one level of the home it’s the ideal location for them without the worry of getting around in an unknown home.

About The Owner

Our guests comments and reviews best describe what you can expect from our homes however here is some background on us and how've we've grown. We renovated and opened our first vacation rental next door in 2003 with the goal to offer the best vacation rental in the area. Each year I invested the profits into the home to offer more and more amenities and features each year. The home has grown to become one of the most successful vacation rentals in the area with a large percentage of our guests being repeat customers. We are often approached by other homeowners to manage their properties however most are not willing to invest the time and money it takes to live up to our standards and we prefer to keep our full attention on our own two vacation rentals to give our guests the best experience and our full time commitment.

Although location, amenities, layout, yard and river are all major factors, our crew is devoted to assure a no hassle pleasant stay for all of our guests. We often hear guests say their vacation has left them with wonderful life long memories. We understand maintenance, upkeep and preparations are imperative to maintaining a trouble free vacation at our homes and should any issue arise, we are immediately taking action to resolve any issue guests may have. One of our reviews mentions we truly have a passion for what we do. This holds true for our entire crew. When everyone involved truly cares about our guests experience, the end result assures guests will have a great and worry free experience.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday reunion at River Haven. We range in age from 3 years to 89 years. The house was suitable and lovely for all of us. Your renovation is wonderful and your hospitality offered a lot of special amenities not always found in a rental property.

Hopefully, we can all meet here again next year. We have come from Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, Seattle, Dayton Ohio, and Connecticut. Thanks, again for sharing your great home.

Catching up with old friends

Fantastic setting for a weekend on the lake catching up with old friends. The owners obviously take great pride in their property. Would recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing setting in this area.

We had our family reunion here. There were 27 of us at the same time. River Haven was a great place for us. The deck and the outside is where we spent most of our time. We had a slight water problem but the management was out personally in no time at all.

It was close to lots of things to do.

We had a great time

Family Spring Break Trip

  • 5 of 5

So happy we rented this place out 4 nights we really did not want to leave! The lake water was a bit chilly but the weather was nice and warm and didn't bother us at all while floating out in front of the homes dock. One of our little ones caught a turtle on the day we fished it was great. The home is very cozy, clean and well taken care of. Staff is wonderful and is quick to reply and assist with anything. Already planning our next trip back!

Great Place for the Winter months

  • 5 of 5

My family has traveled down south to this home every winter for the past 4 years to get away from all the heavy snow up north. The colder weather here is much more favorable and the homes indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pit are wonderful to have. Drinking coffee on the dock every morning is very relaxing as well. With little river traffic at this time taking our kayaks out was a breeze.

Year round boating & fishing with many off season weekends in the 70's & 80's. Relax under the stars along the river from a 70 foot illuminated pier, or soak in the view from our second level panoramic deck. Nearby New Braunfels attractions include the upper Guadalupe River (rated the best tubing & rafting river in Texas) & the Comal River Tube Chute (the best free water attraction in Texas), Schlitterbahn (one of the largest highest rated Water Parks in the world) & Landa Park with a beautiful spring fed swimming pool. Other nearby attractions include Natural Bridge Caverns, historic Gruene TX, Fiesta Texas, Sea World, The Alamo & San Antonio's renowned River Walk.
