Our stay at the Cool Comal Cottage was wonderful. The location is fantastic and it's a great SAFE place for the kids. The owner was in constant communication with us at all times. We had to purchase tubes during our stay (to replace some that would not hold air) and the owner reimbursed us very quickly. The condo was very clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. I would recommend bringing a fan for the living room area because it tends to stay warmer than the rest of the condo. There is only one air vent in the kitchen and with the door to the balcony being opened frequently, it tends to stay warmer in that area. This is a 5 star review for the room, location , and awesome owner of this particular condo; however, we were very disappointed in the management monitoring the gate. They were extremely rude and unprofessional. River Run will not let anyone on the premises that does not have a wristband, regardless of the relationship (example: our kiddos grandparents). While we admire that the rules are being followed (which is the reason this is such a great safe place for the kids) they were very rude and attempted to get the owner involved when he had nothing to do with it. We watched them get into several arguments throughout our stay with multiple attendants. I wanted to add this to the review so that the owners of the condos at this property are aware how the management is treating your customers. Overall, a very very GREAT vacation and stay at the Cool Comal Cottage.
We had a nice week with lots of family time. The condo was in a perfect location. It is small, but that allowed us to interact with each other.
The condo was in a great location: afternoon shade on patio, top floor corner unit. We traveled with 5 kids and 3 adults, and there were plenty of beds/space for everyone. The bedrooms were quiet (could not hear noise from other patios; although no one was loud...even on 4th of July!). The condo was clean and comfortable, with lots of seating in the living room. The owner thought of everything: enough high-quality river tubes (saved us $15 per person!!) and recommendation for an inexpensive tubing shuttle. All of the patios face inward toward the complex and parking lot, and there is a great view of the pool and river. We were able to watch 4th of July fireworks from the beside the pool (partially-obstructed view, but still great!). Easy access to the river with steps and ladder for the kids.
This condo was a wonderful place to stay on the Comal River. It was really clean. Had all the things that you need for your stay and had comfortable beds to sleep 6 of us. The owner provided us with all the information you would need to know for floating down the river including maps. He also provides tubes for you so you do not have to rent them. The location was also great because you can walk to town. Also the pool and hot tub was also great for relaxing after tubing all day. I would highly recommend this place and I can't wait until we can return for another visit.
We truly had a great experience with our stay at the Cottage. The room was fully stocked with everything we could possible need, from kitchen supplies to floats for the river. Our host was very attentive and made sure we had all the information we need to make our arrival as smooth as possible. The customized entry code was AWESOME!! No keys to worry about. The property is literally a stones throw away from the Comal River which we loved!! Pool, jacuzzi, grill and the river... what more do you need?! We are already planning out next trip and the Cool Cottage will be our spot.
This 2 Bedroom 2 Full Bathroom unit on the top floor of well kept, resort condominium is in a great location right on the Comal River. With tubes and a compressor in the unit, you can tube all day on River without the cost or the wait from renting at one of the many local tubing operations, The unit is clean with a top floor balcony overlooking the large swimming pool with hot tub and picnic area with grills on the edge of the river. A great spot for your morning coffee, although there are many restaurants, cafes and bars nearby as well. The kitchen is well equipped with the necessary equipment to make family meals, The famous Schlitterbauhn Water Park is less than 10 minutes but check the park hours as they are seasonal. Downtown New Braunfels is historic and quaint with lots of shops and restaurants and the historic dance hall where whether you have boots or not you can do the "boot scootin boogie" with everyone else!
Just back from Texas and we already miss it! Cool Comal Cottage was perfect for our family of 5. The kids loved the pool and the river. Everything was clean and in order. We could not ask for more!
