Local Reviews

We are close to my kids' school, there are a lot of families in the neighborhood, and the pool is really nice.

We have a lot of deer and animals, there are some really gorgeous areas as well. Local business fill downtown with lovely locals and offer a good variety of food/drinks.

Strolling around my town, you will see landmarks that each have a story to tell. Who built me, what was the reason they took such good care of me? Continuing on, the rivers' presence is unavoidable, it will attract anyone within moments of arriving. Freinds and family coming together to enjoy mother nature at her best at the our river parks.

It is very close to outlet malls and good shopping. Only 20 minutes from New braunfels and Gruene hall. Go to Canyon lake all time and jetski and fish.

Nice quiet and well maintained neighborhood, with outgoing neighbors. Clay's restaurant is a great place to eat and visit with friends, family and neighbors.

We are getting a lot of new restaurants nearby and things are getting busier. We were getting new neighbors as the old cranky ones are moving and selling their houses.
