The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend the Napoleon house! A group of friends and I were visiting New Braunfels to go tubing on the Comal and there's a tube rental location that is walking distance from the house. Schlitterbahn park is also around the corner. You can find restaurants that are walking distance as well. It was the perfect house for our party of 8!

Great House, Great Location, Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this house for a weekend getaway to Schlitterbaun. The location was great! It is within walking distance if someone is interested in tubing and is only a 3-4 minute drive to Schlitterbahn. Everything was as promised about the property. It was very well maintained and in very good shape. There is a new deck on the back of the house that is great in the morning time or evening to sit and watch the deer come up.

To me, the most important thing is to have responsive owners. We communicated with the owners with a few questions and they always replied within a very short period of time. In fact, on one night, one of the owners came by just to make sure that our stay was good and to ask if there was anything else that was needed.

Overall, I couldn't have been happier with the house and would definitely recommend it to others looking in the area. I will definitely come back when we take another family trip to the area.

The house was very charming and comfortable for our entire family. It is very convenient to the attractions in New Braunfels. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and watching the deer in the yard.

The house was much bigger than the photos showed! Walking distance from the tube rental company, 444. It was perfect! We had such a wonderful time and the house was great. It had such a nice deck in the backyard and there were deer outside in the morning. It was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

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.
