About Leslie Windham

We're native Texans who like to travel in the US and abroad. When we're at home we spend holidays and weekends at the lake with our family, cooking out and enjoying life.

Leslie Windham purchased this house in 2002

Why Leslie Windham chose New Braunfels

We live in Austin, about 45 minutes from New Braunfels and have always found the town so charming. We love being on the water. It's so calm and peaceful out there, but still close to all the amenities and fun in the city.

What makes this house unique

We love to take our kayak out for an early morning paddle for an up close view of the wildlife and the morning light reflecting off the water. We also enjoy sitting on the deck in the evening with a good bottle of wine, watching the day wind down.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a great time. This place is lovely! We love the deck!

Good location for wurstfest

  • 3 of 5

I was a bit underwhelmed by this property. The owner was very nice and accommodating and I had no problems booking or with any logistics however I felt like the place wasn’t as clean as it could have been. There were several dead bugs and a large cockroach on the kids were walking around barefoot and both of them had super dirty black feet after 30 mins. The bed my husband and I slept on was super uncomfortable. It had what I can only assume was some feather filled topper on it that was extremely lumpy and pokey. The coffee maker took forever to make a few cups of coffee and looked like it had never been cleaned.

It worked for just 2 nights but considering what we paid and the fact that a cleaning fee is charged I expected to be able to walk around with my shoes off and not feel grossed out.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry you were unhappy with the house. I wish this had been mentioned when I came down and talked with your Dad. We were literally down the street and could have easily made your stay more pleasurable. The problem could have been resolved in minutes. We have had the same housekeepers for many years and have never had an issue. In fact most guests have complimented the condition of the property. I will talk with the housekeepers today. We did recently exterminate the property. Perhaps that was the issue. Thanks for letting us know about the bed and coffee maker. We will replace the coffee maker today and check the mattress for replacement as well. I appreciate you taking the time to write a review. We can’t fix problems unless we are aware of them.

Really nice river house

  • 5 of 5

A real nice house that has access to the river. Super nice backyard to hangout and grill or just chill by the water. The host was nice enough to take us to the house after accidentally showing up at her residence. We were doing a guys getaway and were looking to unwind and we got just that. Plenty of privacy but they were only two houses down if we newded anything. Overall really nice and accommodating.

Cute house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time and enjoyed the house. Was convenient to everything and the owners are awesome. We were supposed to come Aug 25th but Harvey was coming in the gulf and they were extremely understanding and let us reschedule. Perfect for a girls get away or even a guy trip since its right on the water. Wish we would of brought some poles to fish. Highly recommend this cute house, it was perfect.

Idyllic cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed Egret's Landing. The cottage is very comfortable and spacious. The outdoor spaces are terrific with 3 different seating areas, all at different elevations to enable you to take in the scenery from all perspectives. We grilled and enjoyed sunsets and sunrises both!

Exactly what I had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Egret's Landing. The property was exactly what I expected. The house was quaint and comfortable. We loved the backyard with the decks and covered patio. We enjoyed lots of swimming and relaxing at the dock.
