We will be back for sure!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our weekend get away. RC and I communicated a couple of times earlier in the week and once we left I made a quick call to update him with our stay.

We absolutely loved waking up and ending both days with the deer so close. House had plenty of room and fit 8 of us without any problems! No one ever felt like they were on each other or in the way. 444 tube rental is literally 2 streets away and you are able to access the comal from there.

I would definitely recommend!

Thanks RC and Carol!!

Perfect location and lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is even better for tubing than I had imagined. Our group was able to float the river twice with an easy visit back to the house in between. We met the owners and they were extremely friendly and accommodating.

One tip to visitors would be to buy some extra toilet paper and toiletries. The house had a couple toilet paper rolls but we ran out and there was not any shampoo or other shower supplies. The house was spotless when we arrived but we wanted to wipe down the counters before leaving but we could not find any cleaner. Overall I would highly recommend this rental!

We had a wonderful time. The house was very clean and in a great location within walking distance to the Comal River. The hosts were great to work with and the whole experience was just about perfect.

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.
