What makes this house unique

Our home is located right next door to Schlitterbahn.

We are walking distance to entrance and exit to water tubing, shopping, and some of the best restaurants in New Braunfels. Downtown New Braunfels is about a 5 minute walk. Our home is also accompanied by an 1800 sq ft outdoor party barn, and a beautiful outdoor kitchen/patio area..... there you will find TV's, pool table, bar, music, open air, and commercial outdoor kitchen. This is the perfect venue to hang outside the house.

CJ & DeAnn also own Beyond Blessed Salon and Boutique, the ladies can enjoy shopping. custom fit toe rings or salon services with 10% off!

Very fun property, the party barn was great!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable and accommodating. The party barn was perfect for our get-together; lots of fun for everybody. The weather was terrible, rained all day Saturday, so having the barn for all of our activities was a lifesaver!

The perfect spot for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in the heart of NB and is the perfect spot for a larger group to stay. The owners are very nice and are close by if you need them or have any questions. We loved the party barn!! The house was well appointed with everything we needed to cook, which is a huge plus over the 3 other homes our group has stayed at in the past. Can't wait to stay here again next year!

Amazing property, amazing location and super-fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for all the kids. We could barely get them out of the party barn to go to the water park. Pool table, shuffleboard, ping pong and music. Tons of room to socialize. Lots of space in the house for families to have their own room. All the appliances worked just fine, plenty of hot water, well stocked kitchen. Nice big gas grill out back.

Shopping, restaurants and Landa Park right across the street. Toobs already blown up in the barn if needed. Two minute walk to Schlitterbahn. Saturday morning coffee on the front porch and no one will ever find you. Owners went over everything from top to bottom. The cookie they left was gone before they made it out the driveway. Its a tight driveway but plenty of parking once you get to the back. We had 7 trucks in there. Can't wait for next year!!

Our home is located within walking distance to downtown shopping and resturants, spa, golfing, tennis, a beautiful park, tube rental, tube shoot, and of course many pubs and bars with live music venues, and guests staying with us can reserve VIP table at Conway's Dancehall to enjoy an evening dancing to Country Music or there are many wine tasting venues close as well. Historic Gruene is just a 10 minute drive which offers antique shopping, live music, great resturants and an over the top shopping adventure. You can dance at the oldest dance hall in Texas or if you like good old Country Music, Conway's is the best bet! You might also enjoy a 10 minute walk to the oldest Bakery in Texas, it's called Naegelin's Bakery ...We are located in the center of fun in New Braunfels Texas and we look forward to you enjoying a wonderful vacation with us!
