About the property

Enjoy the country-life scenery/wildlife/quietness for your next family vacation


Country setting with quietness and tranquility just minutes away from the many activities available in New Braunfels, Gruene, Canyon Lake or other surrounding areas!! Walk up a flight of stairs (17 steps) thru your private entrance into a spacious, 750 sq ft, suite-like apartment where your family can relax in the comfort of your home-away or on your private covered balcony before enjoying the numerous various attractions nearby. The rental is attached to the main quarters of the house (2nd floor over carport/garage area) and the owners live on-site, however, it is very private and unassociated with the owners' homestead. The rental is conveniently located only minutes away from Schlitterbahn, Guadalupe/Comal Rivers, Gruene, Canyon Lake, Whitewater Amphitheater, Stars and Stripes Drive-In Theatre, Landa Park or Fischer Park, and all the other attractions in and around the New Braunfels area. The rental is decorated with a personal touch to brighten your stay and give you the "homely feeling". There are hardwood floors throughout bedroom, living room and kitchen area. The bedroom/living room are combined with 1 queen bed, 2 twin beds, crib (upon request), Loveseat and 2 lounge chairs, ceiling fan, 32" TV, DVD, VCR, cable. The kitchen is equipped with a full size refrigerator with icemaker, 2-burner electric cooktop and convection microwave. Dishes, glasses, silverware, pots, pans as well as coffee maker, blender and toaster, and some paper amenities are provided. The tile floor bathroom is spacious with a walk-in shower and ceiling fan. Towels and bedding are provided. A large propane/charcoal grill is provided for your outdoor cooking. After a long day of sightseeing, shopping or playing, grab your favorite beverage and relax on your private balcony, multiple porches/decks or poolside and enjoy the scenery of wildlife and birds roaming the 3-acres. Enjoy swimming in the pool (summer months) before your adventurous day or after coming back and winding down. On those cozy evenings, sit around the fire pit talking about good ole times and roasting marshmallows. There is plenty of secure parking for all your water toys. This is a private rental, therefore, only you and your paid guests are allowed to be on the premises and use the facilities, unless approved by the owner. Forgot something, don't worry, owner on-site and can help you out.

About Debra Gibson

We have been married for 40+ years and have 2 wonderful daughters, who gave us 2 outstanding son-in-laws and 3 gorgeous/intelligent grandkids. We grew up in San Antonio, only 30 miles south of New Braunfels, but it only took a few years after marriage to call our home New Braunfels. Through years of living here, we have seen a small town develop into a huge town with so much beauty, culture, history, attractions, etc that keeps a family connected.

Debra Gibson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Debra Gibson chose New Braunfels

We lived on the Guadalupe River for years, but decided to make a change. We wanted to still live in New Braunfels; but since the town has grown so big outside the city limits, we were still able to find a place within NB with a few acres to roam on. We love the outdoors and New Braunfels definitely has a lot to offer in that category. No matter what season it is, there is always something happening in New Braunfels.

What makes this apartment unique

When we came to see our current home, our first impression was the beautiful property covered with too numerous to count oak trees. Then, we entered the house and instantly fell in love. We have just enough acres to roam on and feel free without interrupting neighbors. Our beautiful property gives one the serenity they need after a stressful day.

Peaceful, relaxing, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment, fully stocked and very very clean, could have stayed forever. The owners are available, helpful, friendly and would provide anything we needed. There are maps and brochures available to assist with siteseeing plus Debra has lived there and offers advice. It was close to every thing we wanted to see and even shopping was only minutes away. Quiet road so we could walk daily and enjoy the warm air. Beds were comfortable, no noise anytime, Shower was hot with great water pressure, liked the full size refrigerator, TV had plenty of channels, outside upstairs deck was so relaxing and the view was nice. We watched deer every day and even saw a road runner! If there were 10 stars available, I would give this place and the owners a big 10. We were there last week Feb 2018
