About Sharon O'Toole

I grew up in very far south Texas and had relatives in Austin. We had MANY family reunions in New Braunfels. I ended up going to college in Austin and always wanted to end up in New Braunfels.

It's a great family town!

Sharon O'Toole purchased this house in 2006

Why Sharon O'Toole chose New Braunfels

The Market Street House is close to everything New Braunfels! The Comal River is 50 yards away. There are 3 tubing outfitters out the front door. Walk to great restaurants, bars, music venues, the farmers market, historic sites, etc.

What makes this house unique

In addition to great people watching from the front porch swing under the ceiling fan, The Market Street House has a large inside gathering space with ample seating. The covered back deck (also with ceiling fan) has a bbq grill and more eating space. There is also a lot of off street parking available behind the house.

Stay and Play in New Braunfels, Texas!

  • 5 of 5

Mark and I spent a delightful weekend in New Braunfels! This charming and cute little cottage on Market Street was home for us. A trip to the Bakery! WOW! Strolling down the main street was just fun! A must see is the 150 year old hardware store right there on Main Street. A trip to Gruene is also a must. We found Gruene Hall to be hopping with entertainment and neat people. Texas Tubes is out the front door and a 3 minute walk. The river was awesome! We sat on the back porch and read. Loved the front porch swing and found the little cottage to be heaven. Dishwasher, Washing Machine, AC, Dryer, all the finest of appliances! You could't ask for anything more!

The Train at Landa Park was so much fun. We needed a retreat from the world and the Market Street Cottage provide a sanctuary for fun, play, rest and relaxation!

This house is awesome! Such a cute and charming house / perfect size for a family or even large group. Everyone gets a bed! Sharon was beyond helpful and kind to us during our stay...and before and after our stay too! Amazing host! The location could not be any better. Directly across the street from Chucks Tubes (also amazing customer service) and walking distance to river entry. 2-5 minute drive to downtown and all the restaurants and bars. I will definitely stay here again! Thanks Sharon!

Super cute house close to the river.

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 2 children, very comfortable for our family. River was a very short walk away, schlitterbahn is about a 10 min walk. Close enough for us. Loved the house and location.

A favorite vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Last year we (2 adults and 4 children aged 1 to 10) made a wonderful 3-month trip across the US, from Miami to San Francisco by car and then to New York by airplane before flying back home to Sweden.

During the trip we rented 13 different properties of which this is one and I would say we got quite experienced when it comes to evaluating various aspects of vacation properties and property managers/owners.

In brief, this New Braunfels home is really great. In fact, it is probably my favorite of all the properties we rented and I absolutely agree with all positive things said in the other reviews.

We would definitely recommend it to others and we would love to stay here again!

Best location in New Braunfels, TX

  • 5 of 5

This was the third annual river trip our group has stayed in one of the homes managed/owned by this company. We loved the Libel House but as our group has grown we needed to have a place with more space... so we rented both for the weekend. The N. Market St. house is bigger and closer to the water and the price per person is the same so it was a no brainer to add it to the trip to accomodate our larger group. Both homes have had everything you need and nothing that you don't. You will find tons of parking, a convenience store across the street (from the Market house), and a grocery store within five minutes too. We look forward to returning next year. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home.
