Welcome to 'La Villa Bella'. La Villa Bella means 'The Beautiful Residence' in Italian. You will understand why when you arrive and are welcomed by the long private beautifully landscaped driveway surrounded by palm trees and tropical plants. The location is absolutely perfect - nested outside New Braunfels and close to Canyon Lake on a private 4 acre estate.

Our previous guests consistently comment on how beautiful and comfortable the home is. The main home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It is fully furnished with an ideal kitchen for the cooking enthusiasts and a laundry room for your extended stays. It also has an outdoor building named 'Casita Rocco'. It is about 30 feet away from the main home. 'Casita Rocco' has a bathroom with a shower, kitchenette, furnished with a sofa, tv, dining table, trundle bed for 2. Perfect for separate children or teenage quarters.


Enjoy cooling off in the private pool while taking in the hill county views. Start the massive outdoor fireplace while grilling a late night snack under the beautiful pergola to warm up those 'chilly' evenings. What a gathering place for family and friends to rekindle old memories while creating new ones.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Dino and Teresa are extremely proud to offer our home for your enjoyment. We love this area of Texas and plan on retiring here one day away from the cold winters of Chicago. While we work towards our retirement goal - we look for you to share and enjoy our wonderful 'La Bella Villa'.

Why the Owner Chose New Braunfels, TX, USA:
It's not just us saying, but everybody that comes by loves this home. It is private but still close to tons of activities. You can simply relax in the pool at the property. Or you can enjoy everything the area provides - tubing, fishing, boating, hiking, shopping, golfing, hunting, exploring, music, restaurants, etc. - and at the end of the day, you will have this wonderful property waiting for you. We also love the location. We could enjoy cities like Austin or San Antonio (both about 1 hour away) or the quaint towns of Gruene, Wimberely, New Braunfels, Fredricksburg, etc. If you like shopping - the San Marcos outlets are close to you. Bottom line - the home can adapt to your needs - and that's why we love it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Home has truly a resort feel with private pool and spa.
