Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a blast. The weather was perfect so we were able to do every activity we hoped to. The two ladies that take care of your house are great. They were very welcoming to us and we appreciated their hospitality as well as the good job they did cleaning the house.

Thanks, Debra

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a birthday weekend gathering with a total of 16 people. Everything was amazing! There was plenty of room for everyone and a great location for people who want to stay inside the house or go to the backyard to swim or fish. House is fully equipped with everything you need. I would recommend taking your own containers to bring home any left over food. Definitely will be booking again and highly recommend to everyone!!!

Great place to spend a weekend

  • 5 of 5

Daryl was a wonderful host for us! He was very accommodating throughout the whole booking process. We had a large group for the weekend and everyone had a place to sleep. The location of the house is great - right on the water. The backyard is perfect for lawn games and the sun deck is great for relaxing. The house is much bigger than it appears to be from the outside. I highly recommend for large groups!

Great place for large groups

  • 4 of 5

First off, I'd like to say that Daryl was very accomodating. He allowed us to arrive earlier than scheduled and leave later than scheduled.

The house was pretty much perfect for the group we had. We held a fantasy football draft over Labor Day weekend and it was enough room to sleep 12 people comfortably. The master bed room is huge and has it's own private balcony over looking the lake. There is also a smaller room with another queen size bed that served its purpose. Downstairs there are 2 bunk beds (with a full size on the bottom) and a futon to sleep on that would be perfect for a group of kids to hang out. The backyard is HUGE. There is enough room to play corn hole, washers, slip n slide or whatever other games you'd want to play.

The only negative things I'd say would be that the back patio/bushes could use a good power-washing and the sleeper sofa beds are pretty uncomfortable (but what do you expect from a sleeper sofa anyway?).

Other than those small things, I'd recommend this house to any large groups looking to hangout outside in the backyard, swim in the lake, go off the rope swing and grill all weekend!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to post a review. I am so glad you all had a great time. The draft there sounds like a blast. I will check out the back patio and bushes and power wash the concrete if needed. Without seeing them yet I will say that as summer winds down there are more days opening up for the heavy outside power washing but mid summer there is less time with back to back guests. Also I wish I knew a better sofa sleeper option. I got the best I could buy and they are not very old and still not as comfortable as a normal bed. Thank you

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a family vacation in New Braunfels and loved staying at this home. The home has two bedrooms up top with 2 beds and a basement area with 2 bunkbeds. The basement area is nice and has its own bathroom and A/C to keep cool. The home had TVs with cable in the top and in the basement so we could relax after a long day and watch TV. We also really enjoyed being outside. The kids played in the lake everyday and really loved the rope swing. Many of the adults enjoyed relaxing by the water and falling asleep in the hammock. We spent a lot of time outside just enjoying the lake. The only caution here is boats and jet skis can get really close to the dock and make huge waves so keep an eye on your children. We had 11 people and had plenty of room with 4 of us in the basement and another sleeping on the sofa bed. The sofa bed is not real comfortable but it was ok for the kids.

Overall the owner gave us a lower price than others and that is why he got our business. He stayed in contact with me to answer questions and we really enjoyed working with him and staying at this home. We plan to visit again sometime.

PERFECT!!! Hated to leave.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from an awesome week with our church youth group. Can't recommend this property/owner more highly. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the lodging we had reserved at another property fell through. I called Daryl, a total stranger a couple days before our travel dates, and he jumped through hoops to make our trip happen. We took 2 adults and 15 youth and loved every minute of it. The property is huge, the house roomy enough to accommodate us more than comfortably. Swimming was good (Kinda cold. It had rained the day before we arrived, but got used to it quickly), fishing enjoyable (caught a couple nice sized bass, lots of perch), played horse shoes and washers in the backyard all week. Really cool fire pit where we gathered for hours every night. The place was clean, kitchen had everything we needed. It's close to Schlitterbahn and tubing areas and just about everything else you want to do in New Braunfels. And though it is in an area with many other properties, it was VERY quiet. Loved it. Man, I couldn't have asked for more from a retreat for our youth. And for the price, nothing compares. Give it a try. Thanks for everything Daryl!

Lakehouse you don't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a calm bachelorette girls weekend. We floated the river and had tons of plans for Saturday night but ended up staying in to sit by the lake and enjoy the view. This house fit us all comfortably and we loved the open living room for our party and movie night. Daryl was easy to work with and made me definitely want to come back!
