Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 4, 2015
5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 14

Enjoy your vacation in this charming home nestled among the pecan trees in an historic district in Downtown New Braunfels, Texas. Centrally located, and one of only a few homes to rent in the downtown area, the home is within walking distance of the Comal River, Schlitterbahn, the McKenna Children’s Museum and Landa Park. New Braunfels is a train town and like any part of downtown New Braunfels, we are located near where the trains pass through, so you will hear trains every so often. While the issue has been discussed often over the years with the city, it has been accepted as a part of the charm to our beautiful town.

Downtown New Braunfels offers fine dining, entertainment, and numerous activities close by. Gruene Hall, Texas’ oldest dance hall, is a short drive away and is famous for the live entertainers who sing on stage every day. Gruene also offers great shopping, restaurants and wine tasting. Lake McQueeney is a great place to water ski and is a short five minute drive, and Canyon Lake, a much larger lake is about a 25-minute drive. Want to shop? The outlet malls, Prime and Tanger, are only fifteen minutes away!

Beautiful New Braunfels: Situated between Austin and San Antonio, there are unlimited tourist attractions within a reasonable driving distance. If your vacation plans include a trip to San Antonio to visit Sea World, Fiesta Texas, the Riverwalk, Natural Bridge Caverns, or the Alamo, we are minutes from IH-35, and an easy 25-minute drive to downtown San Antonio. Austin (the State capital of Texas) is known for its live music and numerous exquisite restaurants and is only a one hour drive. And don’t forget to visit San Marcos with its famous outlet malls and the Power Olympic Whitewater Kayaking center located on the San Marcos River.

Our Historic Home: Built in 1913, this beautiful home was once used as a bed and breakfast and has recently undergone major renovations to ensure you have all the conveniences of modern living blended with the charm of an old home.

This house can easily accommodate a large single family or two families – one on each floor. There are two master bedrooms (one on each floor), four bathrooms (two on each floor), four additional bedrooms (two on each floor), two living rooms (one on each floor), a main gourmet kitchen (located downstairs) as well as a kitchenette upstairs. Both front and rear yards are fenced in and pets are welcome outside.

The living room will make you feel right at home and includes all the modern day conveniences including cable television, Flat screen TV. The kitchen is fully furnished with all the essentials for your cooking needs. All bedrooms have linens and new beds for your comfort. We have everything you need to make your stay a comfortable and convenient one!

Nice Property - Needs Some TLC

  • 3 of 5
Rating Details:
The property manager was adequately helpful.
The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.
I was very happy with the location.
I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:
Property itself is nice but could be great. Amenities need replacement/updating, i.e. coffee pot, pots & pans, utensils, sheets, pillows, light bulbs, etc. It had not been deep cleaned in a long time; ceiling fans, blinds, floors, inside drawers & cabinets (need new liners), outside furniture/patio/porch/deck. There were live & dead bugs on the floor & live bugs in the bed in an upstairs bedroom. Small children could not be put on the floor to crawl around. Bathrooms have limited counter space & no trash cans. House has so much potential to be awesome. It is convenient to everything. Note: Train tracks a block away; train runs 24/7.

Reviewer Comments:
The pictures online with this listing don't do it justice. Much roomier and charming! The location is perfect. We walked to the town shops several times. The playground and backyard was perfect for the little ones. A little short on extra blankets and one of the couples had a struggle on one of the mattresses. That might be the only thing that would give me pause but I'd definitely want to rent again.

Reviewer Comments:
First of all, the owner of the house was great to work with - I received quick and easy to understand responses to all of my questions. Secondly, this house is precious and MUCH bigger than it looks - the pictures on this site just don't do it justice. We walked to Huisache for dinner and walked around that area as it is was very walking-distance friendly to many places downtown. We were also a very short drive to Gruene Hall. I'll stay here again!

The Galle Haus was very accommodating for our large family gathering. It's an older home was very functional. The playscape and large back yard was a great plus for the kids. The location was great, walking to downtown. The rental process was online and without problem.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
The house is even larger and more beautiful than it looks in the photos. It is in a perfect location for walking to the things we did one of the evenings in New Braunfels - dinner at Huisache's followed by the local musical theater production. We drove to McAdoos for dinner the first night and realized we probably could have walked there too. Wonderful restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. The train was never noticeable even though fairly close to the house. We would definitely recommend it to a group of women such as we were or for a family reunion, etc.

Everything we could have hoped for :-)

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here - from the AWESOME kitchen (I have super stove/oven envy now) to the clawfoot bathtubs in every bathroom. The home was just perfect for our tri-family stay. It's proximity to shops, the farmer's market on Saturday and the river were perfect. We would stay here again in a heartbeat :-) The train added charm and was not a negative factor at any point. Truly a gem of a place.
