Perfect Location

I want to thank you for allowing us to rent the condo, it was in the perfect location and the view was beautiful. We loved the interior as well. We were most pleased.

My favorite part was the access to the river. We walked to toe access point at the bridge which was about a 2 minute walk and took a 30 minute ride to the condo. It was perfect!

It was the first time for my wife to stay in a VRBO property and now this is the only way she will spend her vacations going forward. The property had all the conveniences of home with beautiful views and conveniently located to areas of interest.

Location, Location,Location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is nice, well kept and well stocked. The location could not be better. Directly across the street is the back entrance to schliterbaun. If you purchase your tickets in advance online they will allow you to enter through that gate and avoid the lines at the front where they issue that specific day's wristband. We did have a few hiccups during our stay (at no fault of the property owner or manager) but Suzanne was amazing and personally made sure the issues where addressed immediately. She was phenomenal! We will be back next summer and I would highly recommend this rental to my family and friends. Not only was the service she provided above and beyond what was necessary but the condo had everything labeled with Instructions for posted in the kitchen. Check in/check out could not have been easier. We rent through VBRO at least half a dozen each year and I would say this was one of our favorites. Five stars all the way.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was nice and clean and we definitely felt at home. The perfect place to stay if you go to Schlitterbahn Water Park. The condo is right across the street from a private entrance. We were able walk to our condo for lunch and take a little break from the park then go back (as long as you keep your wrist bands on to regain entry). We would definitely stay here again.

New Braunfels, the city of 2 rivers, is famous for 'tubing' or floating down the river. Locals and tourists both enjoy the river year round. The Comal River is in your backyard inviting you to observe local wild life or jump in for a swim, kayak trip, or relaxing float. Downtown New Braunfels is home to the oldest bakery and hardware store in Texas. Pick up an apple strudel from Nagelin's bakery. Shop for souvenirs at Henne's Hardware. Step back in time to the early 1900s to enjoy a good meal, happy hour, or live music at the historic Phoenix Saloon and Chili Parlor. Visit the Sophienburg Museum to learn about pioneer life of the German settlers who came to New Braunfels in the mid 1800s. They are all within walking distance of the condo. Don't forget to visit nearby Gruene which is a national historic district. Visit Gruene Hall, the oldest dancehall in Texas, to hear live music daily and see where legends like Willlie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, and George Strait have all played. Be sure to visit the old fashioned ice cream parlor at the General Store, eat at the Grist Mill overlooking the Guadalupe River, or taste a Texas wine at The Grapevine. Nearby Landa Park has a miniature train, the 'Founder's Oak' dating back to the 1700's, a lake for paddle boating, a dance slab for free evening concerts in the Summer, Panther Creek hiking trail, and pavilions for family picnics. Enjoy a scenic drive up River Road to nearby Canyon Lake to rent a boat or jet skis. Natural Bridge caverns is nearby. San Antonio's Riverwalk, Seaworld, the Alamo, and La Valitta (shopping district for authentic Mexican crafts) are only a 30 minute commute. The outlet mall in San Marcos is only 20 minutes away. Visit Austin's famous 6th street and see why Austin is the 'live music capitol of the world.' There is so much to do that you will want to keep coming back to New Braunfels as a guest at the condo!
