Our home is also accompanied by an 1800 sq ft outdoor party barn, and a beautiful outdoor kitchen/patio area..... there you will find TV's, pool table, bar, music, open air, and commercial outdoor kitchen. This is the perfect venue to hang outside the house.

We're done searching for the perfect place.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just wrapped up our 8th annual family Schlitterbahn trip in New Braunfels. We've stayed in many different homes over the years, but this time we hit the jackpot. The party barn is absolutely fantastic, and it provided entertainment for the whole family throughout our stay. I think I became addicted to shuffleboard. It's even better than the pictures. As far as location, it couldn't be more conveniently located between Schlitterbahn (note the backyard literally is beside the Dragon's Revenge ride) and the Comal river. The owners were fantastic too. They met us at the property when we checked in, and walked us through the whole place at our request. We'll be staying here every year going forward as long as they'll have us.

One last thing... in all the years we've been traveling, I have never taken the time to write a review before.

Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

Rented for our annual golf trip. House was exactly what we were looking for. Great location, plenty of room and in immaculate condition. Party Barn with pool table, shuffleboard, and ping pong were great for us and would be a great for kids also. You won't be disappointed when you arrive and see the property. We will definitely rent again for our trip next year.

Fantastic Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place. The barn in the back is great to hang out in and the sleeping arrangements inside the house are more than adequate. Also, location location location. It is within walking distance of schliterban and the river, as well as several other attractions, like Union Street Station right next door.

Great Location & House for New Braunfels

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my 30th birthday with a group of friends for the last weekend of Wurstfest. The Party Barn out back is a must for a large crowd. The Barn feels like you're in your own personal bar. The location was perfect for walking to downtown or Wurstfest. Also, the property owners are fantastic! They greet you with amazing chocolate chip cookies and give you a walk through of the entire property. We will for sure be back in the future! Thanks for everything.

Best house and even Better Property Owners

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time me and my friends of 30+ years have stayed at the house and every year it's better and better. I could go on and on about how wonderful the barn is, how convenient the location is, and how nice the house is...but the best part of this rental is the property owners! Tasha goes out of her way to make us feel welcomed. We had a tv issue and radio issue (user error :) ) and her and her husband were over in 10 minutes to get us back on track! We were met with A plate of cookies when we walked in and she accomadated every request we had! I love this house and if she will continue to tolerate a bunch of 40+ Year old guys every year, we will keep coming back! Thank you! Thank you thank you!

Beautiful home with accommodating renters!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home for four years in a row now. Every year we leave wishing we could stay longer! The home is beautiful and has everything you need plus some. It is in a great location... Walking distance to the river shoot and exit. The party barn is so much fun and convenient for large parties that want to go to bed at different times.

Best of all, the owners are amazing and make the process of renting, deposits, check in, check out etc painless! The line of communication is open and they are so accommodating! As long as we are going to the river we will rent this house to stay in. It truly feels like a home away from home!

Our home is located within walking distance to downtown shopping and resturants, spa, golfing, tennis, a beautiful park, tube rental, tube shoot, and of course many pubs and bars with live music venues, and guests staying with us can reserve VIP table at Conway's Dancehall to enjoy an evening dancing to Country Music or there are many wine tasting venues close as well. Historic Gruene is just a 10 minute drive which offers antique shopping, live music, great resturants and an over the top shopping adventure. You can dance at the oldest dance hall in Texas or if you like good old Country Music, Conway's is the best bet! You might also enjoy a 10 minute walk to the oldest Bakery in Texas, it's called Naegelin's Bakery ...We are located in the center of fun in New Braunfels Texas and we look forward to you enjoying a wonderful vacation with us!
