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.

Everything you want!

  • 5 of 5

This house, party barn, hosts, & location make this THE perfect getaway! It is close to everything you would want to do in the New Braunfels & Gruene areas. The house is fabulously restored and very roomy. The party barn was a hit for our group and guests with ages ranging from 24-70. There is ping pong, pool, an official shuffle board, sound system, large bar area and lots of tables & seating. An additional bonus are the inner tubes and close location to the river and Schlitterbahn. There is also a shaded backyard with two large grills. They have thought of everything to make this a fun place to stay.

A looming tropical storm didn’t dampen our stay at The Good Life House! Our gathering of four families was an awesome experience thanks to Our super hostess, Tasha. We were given a tour of property on arrival and lots of helpful information. The house was conveniently located to water park, river and restaurants! The party barn was enjoyed by all and came in super handy for grandkids and adults! It provided ping pong table, pool table, shuffle board and ample space to spread out.

We can’t say enough good thing about the house! Very clean, well decorated and so comfortable for our large family. We had everything we needed and then some. Our only regret is that we had to leave!

True definition of “The Good Life”

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfectly located with easy access to the river, Schlitterbahn and walking distance to great food. The house is well maintained and fully stocked. The barn was an awesome addition to the vacation experience where we spent hours playing games and enjoying friendly, fun competition. My family has been vacationing in New Braunfels every summer since 1969. This was our 1st stay at “The Good Life House” and we made reservations for 2019 before we left! Thank you Hooper family for opening your home to us. We look forward to many more years!

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!

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!
