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.

Beyond impressed. Loved the view, the kids enjoyed their stay. Everything was well set-up. The house was gorgeous. The dock had a lovely view of the lake. We would love to make it out again next year!

Great house, awesome location but they need to soundproof the house

  • 3 of 5

The house is beautiful and spacious, great location there were 10 of us and we were happy to stay here. The issues that we had with the house is that we could hear everything that was happening in any other room of the house. We had the door to the room upstairs closed and we could hear everything happening downstairs, or another rooms. Also the housekeeping needs to be improve, we found hair in the tub in the bathroom upstairs and one sock in between the sheets of one of the bunk beds. This are issues that can be fix by adding area rugs to the house. Also making sure the housekeeping service does what they are supposed to do.

Owner's Response: Tina, sorry about the hair in the tub and the sock between one of the sheets in the bunk bed. I will be sure to advise house cleaning of those issues. You can imagine with washing that many linens how a sock could remain in the sheets. As for the noise I have no good answer for you. This is the first time anyone has mentioned anything about the noise. Debbs

House decor was warm and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Loved the dock. Plenty of room for all 13 of us. Didn't have any luck fishing though. I would recommend oiling door hinges. Also a fire pit would be great.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

House is better than in the photos and we were surprised that there was soap, hand soap, some cleaning supplies and other necessities already there. The house and beds are very comfortable and hosts were easy to reach when items were left behind by other guests. We are New Braunfels residents and real estate agents and would recommend this home to others who want a nice place to stay in NB.

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.
