About Debbs or Wendy Nelson

My wife and I grew up in South Louisiana but relocated to Houston, Texas in 2002. We love the architecture of southern homes so we decided to build one with that look on beautiful Lake Dunlap. We have another vacation property besides this one that we just finished building. The property is in Costa Rica and you can view it as well by entering in property ID 455750.

Debbs or Wendy Nelson purchased this house in 2015

Why Debbs or Wendy Nelson chose New Braunfels

This house is built for those renters that have discriminating taste and want to have the best accommodations while away from their own home. Although we are sharing this property with others it was built for us not as a rental and has top of the line fixtures and appliances.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about this house is the quiet street and beautiful lake views it offers. Ample parking for four vehicles or two with your boat.

This home is located close to downtown New Braunfels with easy access to the Comal and Gudalupe rivers for tubing or rafting. Very close to Schlitterbahn water park. You are close to the HEB grocery store, and Starbucks for that early morning coffee. My personal favorite is to just enjoy Lake Dunlap from your own private boat house for all those water sports, wake boarding, skiing, and tubing. You are 25 minutes from San Antonio and 40 minutes from Austin if you have the desire to visit the larger cities in the area. There are numerous small towns within a 20 minute drive that offer antiquing, wine tasting, shopping, and dining. One of the largest outlet malls in Texas is in San Marcos which is about 15 minutes from the house.

More than we expected

  • 5 of 5

This house far exceeded our expectations! The pictures do not do it justice! The room sizes are much bigger in person than in the pictures. There was plenty of space for everyone and then some! We booked this house to do a river float to celebrate a birthday. The home owners were quick to respond to all of our inquiries.

Every person in our group (11 adults total) raved about how beautiful and chic the house was. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable which was a huge plus & no one in our group ever felt crowded! The deck over the water was fabulous and noise did not carry up to the house. We were surprised as we played games such as heads up on the deck and when you reached the back of the house, you could not hear any of the commotion from the game being played on the deck. We had such an amazing time that we are considering our float trip to be an annual thing using the same house!

A bonus for those who are looking to float the river, Rockin R tubes provides a bus service (very reasonably priced) to pick you up and bring you back after you float! This was a great peace of mind knowing all our guest would be traveling safely to and from the house that day!

The house is located closely to anything you may need such as gas stations, grocery stores, liquor stores, and easy freeway access! We wish we could have extended our stay. Definitely something to keep in mind for next year!

Beautiful home and great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend. The house was clean and such a beautiful place to stay. It is right on the water and we brought our boat and put it in at the public boat ramp and then were able to keep it at the boat dock through the weekend. All the fun activities in New Braunfels are only a 5-10 minute drive away. Would definitely stay here again.
