Stone's Throw from Gruene Hall! On the river and swimming pool
About Elisa Racanelli
I'm from Dallas, Texas, but now live in San Jose, California with my family. My parents moved out here for work when I started high school, where I met my wife. I went to college at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo where I played soccer and studied biochemistry. I now have two growing boys, two nephews, and a niece out here in California with me.
Elisa Racanelli purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Elisa Racanelli chose New Braunfels
I have family that still live in New Braunfels, Austin, and Dallas, and close family friends that live in San Antonio. Our family thoroughly enjoys spending our free time visiting our extended family in Texas, and this condo has made it so much easier to create a 'home base' for our family. We can come out for an extended amount of time, visit our family and places we love, and not feel like we're stepping on peoples' toes. Gruene has really become our home away from home.
What makes this Condo unique
Our ground-floor condo is tucked in the corner of the complex, away from the noise of the pool and the elevator. We also have the coolest side of the complex, which is perfect for those warm summer days. Downtown Gruene is walking distance from our condo. We always walk to Gruene Hall for billiards, music, and drinks. The Gristmill is another favorite dinner spot, as is Adobe Verde. Oma's Haus is great fun for outside live music and visiting the locals. But our kids will not let us miss the water diversions. We have a great pool right in our complex, and the Guadalupe River runs right behind the condo. It's very easy to rent some tubes, a paddleboard, or a raft from Rockin' R River Rides in New Braunfels. Or drive down the road to Schlitterbahn Waterpark in downtown New Braunfels.

Wenckens family visit in June
It was a beautiful place, well equipped with all we needed. Perfect location.
Great place to stay!
Loved it! Easy to get to. Very clean! Great space for a family get away. The beds were extremely comfortable. The patio was welcoming and the view was beautiful. Thanks so much for making your rental feel like a home away from home! I will be renting from you again!
Really nice place.. Would definitely like to stay a second time. Thank you!!
Good but needs attention
Our 2nd time to stay here. There were still several lightbulbs out in lamps, ceilings, etc. We mentioned this last year. The smoke alarm battery died one evening which created a loud intermittent beeping. We tried everything we knew to shut it off for the night. Finally had to make a trip to store to buy a new battery...at bedtime. Patio cushions need to be replaced for sure. Someone had sprayed furniture polish on the furniture but it had not been rubbed in so it was rather greasy. This is a nice place, quiet and clean, but needs more attention to fundamental upkeep.
Perfect and quaint space
Our Gruene, TX Trip
We loved our stay! Our condo was very comfortable and conveniently located. The condo had all the comforts of home. Terrific restaurants within walking distance. All the merchants we encountered were so charming. We are planning return trip next year!
