House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps
Interested in tubing or just kicking back for a restful vacation as you listen to the sounds of the river below the beautiful deck? If so, this home is perfect for you. It is located at Cliff View Condos (#7) on River Road near New Braunfels, Texas and sits on 300 feet of Guadalupe River frontage directly across from a beautiful cliff on the river at the old Gardo's campground between the 2nd and 3rd River crossings. You will have DIRECT RIVER ACCESS so it is perfect for playing or just relaxing as you watch others float in the river below. The pebble beach is nothing short of FANTASTIC!!! You can enter the river right off the pebble beach and exit at a variety of places up & down the river, there are shuttle services available to return you to the property. The pebble beach is also perfect for playing or just relaxing as you watch others float in the river below. Also if you enjoy live music, the property is short drive to River Road IceHouse, & Gruene Hall.
It's a 3 bedroom with 2 sets of bunkbeds in one room, and one set in another (bunkbeds are all full on bottom and twin on top), and the master has a queen bed. The sofa in the living room also pulls out into a bed. We request that only 10 people stay in the house and four cars. There are 2 bathrooms in the house and an additional full bath off the carport. The house has a porch with furniture and a fan, a washer and dryer inside, a BBQ pit, all the basic essentials to cook with in the kitchen, and cable/internet. We do stock the house with toilet paper and papertowels at the beginning of the summer but please bring extra just in case!
There are toob rentals onsite (during Summer months) and next door at Gilligan's Island. A shuttle back from Lone Star Float house provides a perfect afternoon float trip. Additionally, there is a large rock beach in front of the house (maybe 75 yards) and a deep natural swimming hole there as well. The only thing separating you from the river is the driveway and rock beach. The view is from the patio is gorgeous and you may even spot goats at breath taking heights in the mornings. A large car port is the perfect spot to toss washers and catch a break from the sun. The beach is private as you are in a gated community with other vacation renters.

We built this house in 2011. We don't get to enjoy it near as much as we'd like to. It's a pleasure to have people appreciate it and enjoy it in our absence.

This house was perfect for our group! We fit 10 people very comfortably and could have probably fit two more. I loved the location of this house from the community that it's in and being right on the river, and also that there is a tube rental place right next door!! Location of the house was perfect for the days we did a long float to restock our coolers and get snacks. We are already planning on coming back for next summer. Nothing but good things to say about our stay!
The house was very nice. Having access to the river just across the way was great!
Great place, perfect location on the river! A blas
We stayed for 4 days and had the time of our lives! River was a blast, near to several gas stations. Gated community was good. Hung out with neighbors at night! We loved it so much, the day we got back, rebooked it for a week for next year!
Amazing trip! Beautiful home!
We rented this house out for my 25th birthday. We comfortably stayed in the house with 8 people, and still could have fit more. The house is kept very clean, and is right next to the ramp down to the river. We even saw goats on the cliffs across the river, it was beautiful! Everything we needed for the weekend was in the house, and the grill outside was used frequently. When we arrived at the house we had some questions for the owners and texted them, and they responded within 5 minutes, and even sent their neighbor over to help us. They made sure everything was perfect. In the kitchen they have info about tube rental places, and how to make tubing the river most convenient. If you stay at this property, you can enter the river on the property, and take a shuttle down river home. This was a nick perk that I didn't know was available until we got to the house. I will definitely book this house again for another trip!
Family getaway ( 10 of us ) to Whitewater Ampitheatre
The location was perfect, great view of the canyon above the river, gated entry. We watched the goats climbing the cliffs from our porch, so awesome. The house was clean and had plenty of room. The price was right and the owner allowed us to only rent one night to accommodate our schedule. The whole family said, we needed to rent this place again for a weekend float. We will be back.
Very nice for families.... but....
My wife and three teenagers stayed here over Labor Day weekend 2015. The place is just as advertised. Property is clean and well-maintained. Nice fishing hole and beautiful scenery. I would recommend this to any family with the follow caveat - not recommend for holidays unless you know exactly what you are getting into. The houses here are close together. There was a bachelor party next door and a bachelorette party across the street. My wife and I vacated the master(since it was next to party house) and bunked with the kids. It was still impossible to get to sleep before 1:00 am due to all the hooting and hollering as well as the bass thumping. Floating the river is convenient, all the locals are friendly and the food in town was excellent. Again, if my wife and I were younger without kids, this would have been an excellent choice to spend the holiday. 3 stars ONLY because lack of sleep. If not a holiday, I believe that I would give it 4.5.
