About Elisa Racanelli

My husband and two partners are the brains behind this complex. We bought the land itand began development around 2008. Our hope was that families would come and enjoy all of the amenities Gruene and New Braunfels have to offer. A beautiful complex. No need for a car! Walk to restaurants, shopping and tubing/rafting.

Elisa Racanelli purchased this condo in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was so happy when walking into the condo to find it so well maintained and decorated. The place is very clean and has exquisite sheets and beds! There was plenty of space in the family room. Unlike the other comment, I appreciated not having to pay the cleaning fees to save a 100.00 for the stay. I stayed in another unit in the complex last year and paid 125.00! Elisa charges much less for her nightly stays than other condos in the complex. We also were provided coffee. A nice perk!

We will be returning to El Patio!

We stayed at El Patio Grande in Gruene, Texas for the weekend, March 3-5, 2017 to attend a near-by wedding. This condo is in the heart of Gruene and you can quickly walk to world-famous Gruene Hall, lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. Two parking places are provided. The condo itself has a huge covered patio overlooking the river and you can hear where the river gets rough just a short way down. Out front of the condo is a courtyard with swimming pool with a can hear water sounds in every direction which makes it so soothing and peaceful.

The condo itself has three rooms, two bathrooms, kitchen and living room. Great care has been to put in quality furnishings, appliances, finishes, etc. Everything you will need is provided. Has full granite kitchen with full fridge, dishwasher, range, etc. Lots of utensils, glassware, dishes, etc. The beds are super comfortable, lots of linens available. The owners have decorated the unit with nice Texas touches without going overboard. There was wi-fi, cable tv, and books and games available. The patios the highlight and has two tables, lots of chairs and plenty of room for a family. You will love your stay at El Patio Grande. Instructions were clear and prompt from owner and condo was super-clean. We plan to go back again soon.

El Patio Grande

  • 2 of 5

The location was great, however:

1) the coffee maker took a long time to brew

2) The TV in the master bedroom had no sound

3) No plastic liner for the shower curtain in the master bath (unable to shower in the master)

We had a great time at Gruene Hall Friday and Saturday night and able to walk.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the problems you encountered. We will definitely fix the issues before Our next guest arrives. We strive to make our place as comfortable and accommodating as possible. I would have happily come with a new coffee maker and shower liner as well as fixed the sound if I had been I live in the area of our condo. I My sincere apologies. Elisa
