'BIKINISLAND' is Total SUMMER FUN directly over Lake McQueeney.If you enjoyed being a kid, you'll enjoy Bikinisland. Swimming, jumping, skiing, boating, night cruises, great for people of all ages. Lots of fun, excitement and things to do in or around the water. A large yard with beautiful green grass, tetherball, large in-water trampoline, 8 person hot tub, really add to your stay. A large sun deck over looking Lake McQueeney is great for sunbathing, grilling and large party times. Jump from the deck and hit the water. The best spot to be on July 4th for the lake parade and tons of fireworks. The ideal place for graduations, family reunions or any other reason you can think of for family and friends to have a great weekend together. Only 10 minutes from downtown New Braunfels and 15 minutes to historic Gruene, Texas.Load up on the 30 passenger party bus and we'll take you tubing.

About Laura

I grew up water skiing and boating. My two boys have done the same thing. At heart, we are true lovers of the water and all it has to offer. We want everyone to be able to experience the same fun and excitement that we have. The memories will be with you forever.

Why Laura chose Lake McQueeney

If you love the water and love having fun with friends, I can promise you there is no place around that offers all the fun things that are at Bikinisland. You can ski, boat, tube and dance all night, all at one place. A huge party bus provides transportation to and from Schlitterbahn and river tubing for more fun. Play volley ball and tether ball, pass the football or Frisbee and enjoy the in water trampoline.

What makes this chalet unique

Water skiing, tubing, a huge in-water trampoline and great view are fun things to enjoy that you cant get anywhere else at one place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This past weekend, I let a group from Trinity College in San Antonio stay on Saturday night. They represented themselves to me as upstanding and responsible so I let them stay. Far far from that were they. The damage totaled almost $1,200.00 which Im going to collect as soon as I finish this Review. They are the perfect example of why most property owners do not allow college groups to rent their property. I wont again. My name is Pat Moore property owner.

We had a wonderful stay! I Love that we were right on the water and we could launch our boat on sight. The kids had a great time on the water trampoline and being outdoors. The place was very roomy and clean. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family.

one night stay

  • 2 of 5

The house is nice. Would have been nicer if the air conditioner had of been on. We called the owner and let him know we were there and would arrive in the afternoon. As much as that rents for and calendar shows to be booked every night , you would think the air would be left on at all times. But we arrive and all of the doors were wide open. The owner did say if we had of come early in am then went and ran around it would have been cool by evening. The next morning the house was still hot 100 degrees . We came with a group of teenagers male and female from (ages 13-21) and the information stated 1 full bath and 2 half baths. What you get is a metal shed with two stools in it between the rental house and his personal house. So if you take a big group and don't care to shower and be hot its a great house. Suggestion check your rental house out through of realator and read all reviews

Owner's Response: Our review score is 5 star. Bikinisland has been rented going on ten years and has had thousands of people stay there. Are these made up claims because your credit card was declined? That can be really embarrassing. After several tries you only had enough money for one night instead of the three nights you reserved. You are always welcome back, but I will need payment in full up front.

An Annual Event

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Bikinisland and plan on making it an annual event! Like last year, we had such a good time.

We jumped off the balcony into the water, jumped on the trampoline, were pulled on the tube behind the boat, played pool and air hockey, floated, took a barge ride (we named it The Booze Cruise), ate and drank all weekend. We still didn’t try skiing but there’s always next year. ;)

Pat and his family were very nice and accommodating. Thanks for having us back and plan on seeing us next year!

Lake Mcqueeney is a part of the Gudalupe river just down stream from tubing and Schlitterbahn in Beautiful New Braunfels, Tx. only 10 minutes away. Lake Mcqueeney, 'The Waterskiing Capital of Texas' is a beautiful 400 acre lake and is surrounded with beautiful homes. Lake Breeze Ski Lodge is the place to go for your dining pleasure on the water.
