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 Hill Country

We lived on the Guadalupe River for years, but decided to make a change this past year. 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 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.

Beautiful country setting

  • 4 of 5

My daughter had a band trip to New Braunfels for a Jr High band trip. We like to rent houses/cabins instead of hotels for our stays. DeeDee's was in our price range. Although the rental is attached to the main residence it has its own entrance so we didn't feel like we were intruding in their personal space and vice versa. We had exclusive use of the pool. Every morning and evening we could watch a lot of deer come onto the property to feed. Debra welcomed us when we arrived and sent us off upon returning home. It was very quiet and peaceful country setting yet close enough to restaurants, stores and attractions.

Amazing escape to the hill country

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent Easter weekend here. We arrived Friday evening around 7 pm. First impressions were fantastic. The home and grounds are beautiful. The owner, Debbie greeted us as we pulled up and gave us a quick and thorough tour of the outside areas and the vacation rental (it's like a mother in law studio with a separate entrance and sits above their carport).

Our kiddos, 6 and 8, insisted they get into the pool as soon as possible and had a blast. While there are no pizza places that deliver, there were a few within 15 min that we could order carry out from.

Saturday morning we drove out to Natural Bridge Caverns. Super cool place. Do not get discouraged if it is busy. Had long lines to enter the facility, however it is ran very well. We waited in line about 15 min, our kids played in the lawn so time went by quickly, then our tour started 30 min later. The tour itself is a little over an hour. It is a bit of a hike in and out of the cavern but if you're capable of it, it's well worth it. We've toured a handful of Caverns in different states and this was great! They also have food, zip lines, a family maze and the drive thru safari park next door. You could easily spend a full day here.

Afterwards we drove into New Braunfels and went to Cooper's Barbecue...Amazing! Great atmosphere, extremely family friendly, and a great outdoor dining option with picnic tables on the grass which is perfect for the kids if it's not too hot out. Ended the day with the pool and leftovers for dinner.

Easter Sunday we put on an egg hunt for the kids outside and then went to the Snake Farm and Animal Zoo. A very unique experience. Kids loved seeing all the different types of snakes, there's a bunch! It's quicker to go through, we were in and out in less than a hour.

The rest of the day was spent watching the kids swim and play in the yard!

We had such a wonderful time. My husband and I really enjoyed the family time as well as the time spent visiting with owners, Debbie and John. These are amazing folks that make you feel part of the home, but will also give you space and privacy.

We will definitely return!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us and our two children. The backyard is great and our kids loved the playground and the pool. There was even a fire pit for roasting marshmallows at night. They didn't want to leave the house! However we were able to convince them to venture out into New Braunfels and everything was close by and easy to get to. The apt was also very nice and comfortable and it had everything we needed for our weekend stay. Oh, and all of the deer wandering around the yard in the morning made it even more exciting for the kids. We definitely will stay here whenever we visit the area again.

Great get-away for this mama and her 2 girls

  • 5 of 5

Our girls and I wanted to go somewhere not too far (only 45 minutes away from home) for a relaxing time yet somewhere that we could keep our little 1st grader active and entertained. Dee Dee's Hideaway was perfect! She enjoyed the trampoline while our 13-year old and I could bond and chat. Gruene was not far for a nice early dinner and a little shopping. Live music was great! Fischer park was also great for our 7-year old! Our mission of wearing her out worked. The first night we spent at the local drive-in - it was our first time and what a great experience! We enjoyed cooking breakfast in the mornings and we enjoyed watching a couple of DVDs the 2nd evening. Games were provided and we all enjoyed several games of checkers too. Debra and John were always available and felt like we were part of their family and not to mention SAFE since it was just us 3 ladies. We will definitely return in the summer so we could take advantage of their beautiful pool. Oh, and watching the deer feed was also an unforgettable experience for myself and our girls. So much to do in New Braunfels and all relatively close by - yet Dee Dee's Hideaway feels like you are so far away in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. We had a little trouble connecting to Wifi the first evening but by the second day it was working like a charm - hadn't realized we had 3 options for a good Wifi connection. Again, Debra was always available and eager for feedback and ways to improve our stay. But I feel it was perfect for us and would be for so many other families of 4 or less.

Shopping sucked but DeeDee's Hideaway was GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to come to do some Black Friday shopping away from home. Stayed at this wonderful above home apartment and could not have enjoyed it more. It was so nice and cozy. I know people say this a lot, but the pictures don't tell the whole story. It's so darn cute! We are a family of 3 and didn't feel cramped at all. I loved the fact that she had a full sized kitchen and kept it stocked. Even though we didn't cook, it still came in handy. I forgot to get lemon juice for my tea and really wasn't expecting to find that, but sure enough Ms. Debbie had lemon juice packets in the fridge. The microwave also doubles as a convection oven, which is really neat. Everything was so clean and cozy! The bed was so comfortable. We absolutely loved seeing the deer come to eat and how close we were to them. This was the favorite part of the whole trip for my daughter. It was a bit too cool for us to go swimming, but the pool looked inviting. We don't do much travel to this part of Texas, but when we do come back, we will definitely stay here. Also, Ms. Debbie and her husband were so nice. They told us what to do and things to check out while in town. If you're thinking about staying here, don't hesitate. You will love it!
