2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Condo At Waterwheel Condominiums On The Guadaulupe River

***Are the dates you need already booked? See my other property, 588550.***

Treetop Retreat is a privately owned condo Waterwheel Condominiums on the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels. Our ultra-private 3rd floor end unit offers a private balcony and no foot-traffic in front of your door or noise above you. This spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo has floor to ceiling windows and a private balcony facing the beautiful Guadalupe river-front expanse. With a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed in the guest room, and a queen sleeper sofa, this unit comfortably sleeps 6 guests.

Waterwheel is a condominium community of privately-owned homes and offers the tranquil feel of a river-front retreat while being right off center of the heart of New Braunfels action. Lounge at one of the two pools, soak in one of the four hot tubs. Plant your camping chair in the river and read a book or fish to your heart's content. Walk next door to Rockin' R River Rides to catch a shuttle for floating either the Comal River or the Guadalupe River. Walk or drive 6 blocks to Schlitterbahn. Walk around the corner to Cypress Bend Park for a short float back to Waterwheel. Drive to Hinman Island, Landa Park, downtown New Braunfels, or Historic Gruene in under 5 minutes.

Enjoy all the comforts of home including a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, WiFi, and cable TV. Enjoy personal touches ... 6 tubes and air pumps are provided for guests to use along with a host of tubing information. Books, board games, and dvd's are waiting for you when you come in from fun in the sun. Plenty of local-area information is available to help you plan your adventures, and I'm always available to answer your questions.

There is a bathroom with shower tub in the master bedroom and a bathroom with walk-in shower with entry to the hall and second bedroom. The unit has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, coffee pot, microwave, and garbage disposable. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of flatware, cookware, and dishes, along with consumables such as coffee, sweeteners, and creamer, dish soap, laundry soap, and paper towels. There is a stack-able washer and dryer and plenty of extra linens.

The door is equipped with a digital lock, and each guest receives a unique code for their stay. No need to check in anywhere, and no waiting around for a manager to bring you a key. Arrive, let yourself in, and make yourself at home!

About Suzanne Franklin

Treetop Retreat is co-owned by dad and daughter, Mike and Suzanne. We're New Braunfels natives, and we love sharing our love and knowledge of our town with our guests.

Suzanne Franklin purchased this condo in 2014

Why Suzanne Franklin chose New Braunfels

The grounds at Waterwheel are beautiful. There's so much space to gather with friends and family, barbque, throw a football or Frisbee, and relax. The river access at Waterwheel is perfect for little kids, big kids, and grown ups.

What makes this condo unique

We provide tubes and lots of tubing information. Tucked in to a quiet residential neighborhood, Waterwheel offers a secluded feel, but is within less than 5 minutes of all the New Braunfels fun. Owners live in town are available to help you learn your way around and make the most of your stay.

Feels Like Home

  • 5 of 5

We're experienced VRBO/HomeAway folks. When we're deciding on a place, reading the reviews is top priority. The rating and reviews for TreeTop are high. This property is well built---barely any neighbor noise. The grounds are well kept with a beautiful lawn area going right to the riverbank. Each evening we watched fire flies as the sun was setting. Deer would be all around the property at all times of day. Families grilling at the picnic area--all of it giving that sense of serenity and relaxation. The river was slow while we were here, so always check that if you're planning to float. New Braunfels has a lovely Farmers Market on the weekends. The town has beautiful parks also situated around it's rverbanks. I don't want to go back to the rat race. Can't wait to return. Suzanne is very responsive and pleasant. My adult children and I have made a wonderful memory here, thank you.

My friends and I had a wonderful time while staying at this condo!! We did not have to worry about bringing pots or pans because everything was supplied. We spent the whole day in lawn chairs on the property down by the river and pool. It was a perfect place to grill and relax!! Will definitely we visiting again.

Beautiful property and convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

5-10 min drive to just about everything! River access on the property. We ubered to Rockin R area with the tubes provided and floated 5 hours directly back to the condo. Amazing! Our condo was private, clean, loaded with amenities such as towels, games, dishes, blender, coffee and coffee maker, washer dryer, dishwasher and the softest sheets. Highly recommend this property and cannot wait to come back!
