About the property

BOTH SIDES - 4 Bedrooms + 2 lofts, 2 kitchens,, 2 Baths, 16 Sleeps or less

All summer weeknight rates are based on parties of 8 or less on 1-side of the duplex. You can rent BOTH sides if you wish for groups of 16 or less.

WEEKNIGHTS are two-night minimum and generally start on Sunday at 5pm if Sunday is available.

ALL RATES CALCULATED and referred to on the VRBO web site is for only one-side of the duplex for 8 guests or less. You can, of course, rent BOTH sides for 16 or less if needed.

The FLOOR PLAN for the ENTIRE house is as follows:

2 bedrooms have 1 queen bed each, 2 lofts have 1 queen bed each and 2 bedrooms have 4 twin beds each set-up on bunk beds. There is a queen sleeper/sofa in each of the 2 living rooms and of course there are 2 complete kitchens and 2 nice bathrooms. You can rent only ONE-SIDE for half of the above listed rooms/beds/baths/greatrooms/etc.

The Rio Raton Duplex is at 6780 River Road outside the city limits of New Braunfels. We are directly at Second Crossing.

This part of the GUADALUPE RIVER is the prime tubing section of the river. New Braunfels silly beer restriction laws DO NOT APPLY anywhere on this area of the Guadalupe.

I have another duplex located about one mile UP river called the Guadalupe River Duplex (VRBO #452715). That duplex and all information, description and booking calendar is on it’s own listing on VRBO (#452715). If the calendar is all booked for the this Duplex, then search for the Guadalupe River Duplex and check it’s calendar for availability.

You can also Google the name, “Rio Raton Duplex” or “Guadalupe River Duplex” and either one should appear on FIRST Google page BELOW ALL THE PAID ADS!!!

See my own website for better information. My TWO DUPLEXES are called the Rio Raton Duplex and the Guadalupe River Duplex. They are both RIVERFRONT on the MAIN TUBING part of the Guadalupe River.

There are tube, raft, and other rental outfitters within walking distance of either duplex. Although most of our guests float and/or tube the Guadalupe, Schlitterbahn is close by in New Braunfels and Fiesta Texas is a short drive to San Antonio as well as Natural Bridge Caverns, Wild Animal Park and the “Dirty Jobs” famous New Braunfels Snake Farm.

The Tanger Outlet Mall is 25 minutes away in San Marcos, There is Gruene Hall just down the road in Gruene, Texas as well as the monthly Gruene Market Days and Wimberly, Texas.

The Rio Raton Duplex is right at the “second crossing” on River Road about halfway to Canyon Lake. The lake has numerous parks and boat ramps for boats and jet skis.
