Thank you Irwin Family! We had a great time at your lovely vacation home. We enjoyed being so close to everything New Braunfels has to offer - It was a short walk to the Comal, Schlitterbahn and the oldest bakery in Texas, our favorite.

RC was kind enough to call and make sure we had everything we needed, and they also are proprietors of a great restaurant in the area that is a must eat!

We'll definitely recommend the Napoleon House to our friends looking for some fun and sun in NBTX.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website do not due this house justice, house is a lot bigger then what it appears to be online. House is very clean and in a great location. When we come back for a short getaway this house will be on the top of our list.

Great, cozy house close to river

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at the Napoleon. We had a total of 4 couples, so the sleeping arrangements were perfect. The house is steps from tubing rental locations. We were able to the Comal River Toobing Company, which is about 2 to 3 blocks from the house. We also walked to the nearby bars in the evening. That was about a 10 minute walk. I loved that we were able to keep the cars parked all weekend long and enjoy the town of New Braunfels. The house was clean and well maintained. Just don't forget to bring ALL of your cooking essentials. We forgot olive oil/butter to make eggs but we made without. There were extra pillows and blankets for the cold ones. We were able to park up to 4 cars in the driveway and two on the street with permit parking. We also loved the backyard patio. Such a cute and quaint spot. This is where we would meet in the morning to see the deer. Overall, this home is a great getaway for families and friends!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. It was even nicer than expected based off of the picture. The back deck was amazing and the house was clean and comfortable. We floated with Comal River Toobs which was maybe half a block from the house. Perfect location and RC was very good at answering my questions.

Great Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in NB. The house was great and had plenty of room for the 5 of us on a girls getaway weekend. There is a tube rental company 2 blocks from the house that we could walk to. It was perfect since we were there to tube down the Comel River. A little far from downtown to walk in the heat of summer, but if it were cooler out, probably could have walked downtown. Just like the other reviews, it was awesome to see about 3 families of deer in the back wooded area. There were 3 fawns, so cute, bring some grain to feed them. We liked sitting on the back deck and watching them. House had Wi-fi and satellite TV so that was nice. Check in and check out a breeze. The owner, RC, easy to reach and quick to answer emails and questions. Would stay here again !!
