This home has been on VRBO since 2012 listed by the previous owner, we purchased in December 2016 as a family getaway. During the previous VRBO listing (#442669), 29 guests rated the property giving it a 5 star rating, unfortunately listings belong to owners and cannot be transferred to the new owner by VRBO. So with that said below is some info about the house that will look familiar to previous guests.

Please call me if you are interested in booking.

You are going to love your vacation in New Braunfels! This house is only 5 miles from Schlitterbahn and tubing on the Comal or Guadalupe River. This home is the perfect place for a large group or family to come relax and take in the hill country. The home comes fully equipped with a BBQ pit, Washer, Dryer, Wireless Internet, HDTV, and so much more!

Come relax in this amazing two story, 4 bedroom, 3 bath home that was built in 2009! In addition to over 2300 square feet of living space, there is an additional 3000+ square feet of outdoor living space; a large ground floor back porch, a second story covered deck over the porch, a large deck overlooking the lake at backyard level and another 2nd deck over the water!

Lounge in the sun or the shade. Enjoy swimming, standup paddle boarding, water skiing, wake boarding, Kayaking, floating or swimming in one of the calmest lakes in Texas. There is a boat launch 5 minutes away and access to your boat or Jet Ski below our waterfront deck.

The kitchen, dining area and living room are located on the first floor with a scene view of the lake out the large rear windows and glass French doors of the home. The kitchen is a gorgeous gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and an island/bar. Our kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need. Just bring the food and we will supply the dishes, pots, pans, silverware and everything in between!

The living room has a great 50” HDTV with DVR and a leather sofa and love seat set. Also on the main floor is the Master bedroom that has a King Size bed, 42” HDTV and a private bathroom with a HUGE walk-in shower and walk-in closet. At the front of the house on the Master bedroom side is a second downstairs bedroom with two (2) full size beds. There is also another full bathroom downstairs across from the washer and dryer closet (full size appliances) for your convenience.

Head upstairs and take in the breathtaking views out the back windows of the second living area equipped with a third HDTV big screen (great area for the kids.) This room also has glass French doors that open up onto a beautiful 400 square foot deck with amazing views of the lake and a staircase leading to the backyard. The second and third bedrooms of the home are upstairs. Exiting the interior stairway into the living area to the right there is a bedroom with a King size bed and large windows with a view of the lake. Out the left side of the living area is a hallway connecting to the upstairs “Jack & Jill” bathroom (2 separate sink areas that both have access into the toilet/tub room). The hallway continues to the final bedroom, the “Bunk Room”, with three full size beds (one being a bunk bed set). This room also has large windows with a great view of the lake. Bedding and towels are not provided.

About Paul

My wife and I are both native Texans. After we both retired, her as a Primary School Principal and I as a Texas Highway Patrol Sergeant, we moved to New Braunfels because her 4 grown kids had settled here. We are the very proud grand parents of 1 granddaughter, 4 grandsons and one on the way. Their ages range from 1 to 11 years of age. She couldn't handle retirement so opened "The Gruene Haus" in Gruene right next door to Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas. She couldn't handle my retirement so I have to manage our new lake house. Be kind to me, I'm new at this but am willing to listen to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Paul purchased this house in 2016

Why Paul chose New Braunfels

She wanted a Lake House for family recreation. After looking at just about every house available on the 4 lakes in the area we knew this was the one.

What makes this house unique

The views of the lake from the home and the 4 entertaining areas in the backyard and the access to Lake Dunlap.

A fantastic home with a beautiful view on the wate

  • 5 of 5

All 15 of us loved staying here on the river! We had our annual family vacation and there was so much to do. We rented jet skis and pontoon boat, fished, swam and had a ball. Paul was so gracious to us. We like the fact we were just minutes to town but were remote also. The view out the kitchen window was a joy to see. All said we would like to come back to this place!

  • 5 of 5

We would love to come back. The house is great. The view is awesome! The proximity to schlitterbahn and many of the New Braunfels attractions was excellent. It is 10 minutes from everything. Paul takes really good care of everything you may need during your stay. If you are looking for a great vacation home this is it.

Owner was difficult to work with and purposefully did not inform us of no water access.

  • 2 of 5

This home is beautiful itself and nice for accommodating a group of people. Unfortunately, the owner was very difficult to work with and misrepresented the current condition of the property. On the day we were due to arrive, we were informed by email that there would be no water access available due to active construction being done on the dock area. These were not emergency repairs or anything that would be considered unexpected, this was remodeling and renovations that require significant lead-time and planning. Being that we had rented this home and it's advertised waterfront access, we had rented two boats for the weekend and planned significant on-water time. Upon bringing this topic up with the owner, he stated that he was "unaware" that we would be on the water since we were renting for a graduation celebration and did not offer any type of apology, much less a refund for the waterfront premium we were paying but not having access to.

Prior to the stay we specifically asked the owner if we needed to bring bedding for all of the beds, to which the owner stated he would have clean bedding laid out on each bed upon our arrival but we would have to make the beds. Upon arrival, only half of the beds in the house had bedding provided, which left three total beds with no bedding, and no other bedding available in the house. Also, several light bulbs were out throughout the house, the blender was broken, and there was a rather angry and large bee hive right in the middle of the backyard. Once again, after encountering these issues the owner was never once apologetic and, aside from handing over a couple of light bulbs through the door, made no effort to offer any solutions.
