Property Details

Updated: Dec 14, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps

The new "Disposable Container Law" effects ONLY properties located within the City Limits of New Braunfels. Our property is located outside of the City Limits and therefore does not affect us.

If you are looking for an unforgettable New Braunfels summer vacation for your family at reasonable rates...You've found it! This location is the BEST on the river. Located on River Road in New Braunfels, this NEW 2011 home sits 75 yards from the Guadalupe River where you have access to 400' of River frontage directly across from a beautiful cliff between the 2nd and 3rd River crossings. You will have a rock beach with DIRECT RIVER ACCESS so it is perfect for playing or just relaxing as you watch others float in the river. Also you can enter the river here and exit at a variety of places up and down the river. There are shuttle services available in the area to return you to the property.

River Road Retreat
New Braunfels Texas Hill Country
Waxahachie, Tx

New Years

  • 5 of 5
I took the whole family to this house. Main point. It was clean. Wife is happy when the vacation house is clean. House was well taken care of and David was very nice to deal with. the Guadalupe River is right below the house and you can watch the mountain goats traverse the mountain while sitting on the deck having your morning coffee or afternoon beer. We arrived on New Years and had a nice treat to a fireworks show against the backdrop of the mountain. Very good neighborhood lets you feel safe letting your kids go to the river to fish without being on top of them.
Remember to get your groceries before you get to the house because its a long drive to the nearest grocery store. Great place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review; we really appreciate it! We hope to see you again as we love repeat renters!

Just in case you are not familiar with the area...I'm not sure where you went to get your groceries (River Road is indeed a long winding road!) but Sattler/Canyon Lake is a little closer than New Braunfels and they have a grocery store there.

Great outdoor spot, awesome house!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful weekend getaway that had the peaceful atmosphere adults desire and plenty of space and things to do for kids. We enjoyed this house so much. It was fully equipped and clean with enough space for everyone. The kids were able to hike around and get in the river while also breaking away to go and shoot some hoops at a nearby basketball court. In the evening the adults would sit on the deck and look at the bluff which is home to goats skirting the edge nearby. The River Road retreat had a little something for all of us: charm,comfort, the river and all of the ambiance of the great outdoors!

Beautiful home!

This house was so new and nice and fit our family perfectly! The rocky beach is a slight walk down the hill, but the kiddos loved playing in the river. The property owners were some of the best I've ever dealt with, when renting a summer vacation spot

Nice Place - Needs more care

  • 2 of 5
Nice layout and good location. However, several items had not been attended to, such as:

No Wi-Fi, despite adverting it was available.
No cellphone reception.

Dishes had not been washed and all rooms not fully cleaned.

Dishware and glasses were all odds and ends and very cheap. Most were not well cleaned and were chipped.

Lights on outside stairs were not working which made it dangerous to walk up after dark.

Owner's Response: We DO have wi-fi. It is on a wireless router and works just fine.

We have no control over cell phone reception.

We spoke with our cleaning company about the cleaning issue. We also refunded the customer his cleaning fee.

Dishware is Corelle and silverware is a decent grade of silverware.

Once we were aware of the outside lights not working they were replaced within 5 days.


Activity and Interests

This home is less than 20 minutes from the towns of New Braunfels and Historic Gruene, which provide antique shops as well as many unique shops where artisans sell their wares. Not only does Gruene have lots of shopping and good food, it is also home of the famed "Gruene Hall", which has served as a springboard for many Texas musicians. A great place for dancing or just enjoying the music. You might even enjoy learning the Texas Two-Step!

You are close to great restaurants as well as several outlet malls. If you are looking for other activities...Schlitterbahn (an awesome water park) is located nearby in New Braunfels. Boating, water-skiing and sailing can be found at Canyon Lake. The drive up River Road to the lake is notably one of the most scenic areas in Texas. Watch for deer and other wildlife along the way!

You will be a short 35 mile drive from San Antonio where you will find Six Flags, Fiesta Texas, Sea World, the famed San Antonio Riverwalk as well as fantastic Mexican food. The Alamo, along with several other missions located in San Antonio are fantastic for a day out. There are numerous tour buses that can take you to experience the sights and sounds of San Antonio.

The state capitol of Texas is located 45 minutes away in Austin, which has great nightlife featuring many of Texas' finest musicians. You never know what great and noted name will appear at some out of the way bar!

For you golfers, there are courses located in New Braunfels as well as San Antonio. Austin is home to some of the finest courses America has to offer.

This location is truly the BEST on the river. You can float in the river or raft it, find a nice place to sit while watching others play or just enjoy the privacy of your own deck as you relax. During the fall, there are many festivals in the area, including "Oktoberfest" and "Wurstfest".
