Hey there! I'm Kristian Lewis, a proud U.S. Marine Corps veteran and former aviation technician. I served my country with honor and distinction, while learning the importance of servant leadership, being process-oriented, and reinforcing traits of success like teamwork, dedication, and perseverance.
After my service, I turned my passion for service and travel toward the skies where I enjoyed a career as an in-flight service crewmember for Delta Air Lines for 7 years. In 2017, I decided it was time to move back to the South, leading me to Central Texas where I fell in love with the people and the culture, so much so that I decided to call it home.
Starting my own vacation rental property management company here in New Braunfels is the culmination and embodiment of over a decade of operational and customer service excellence.
I'm all about maximizing earnings while offering our guests a personalized, boutique-style experience that they won't forget.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people, building relationships with incredible clients, and I would love the opportunity to serve as your property manager!
When I'm not working, you can find me in the kitchen or in the backyard firing up my grill to host friends for weekend get-togethers. I also enjoy spending the day in Landa Park or floating the river with my long-time partner, Christina, 2 dogs Merlin and Tokyo, and daughter - Yuna. Also, enjoying all the area festivals or just visiting the wineries in Gruene is definitely something I make time for at least once a month.
We treat your guests like family, always going the extra mile to earn repeat business, 5-star reviews and increased revenue for you.
The home was adorable! Super comfy and cozy. My husband and I had the most relaxing time. Also, right in the middle New Braunfels which was perfect for us since we were going to both places. Kristian was a spectacular host. Very helpful and quick to respond. We plan to stay again!
This house was wonderful! It was clean and such a great location. You can walk downtown if you’re up for a slightly longer walk, otherwise the drive is only 2 minutes. Kristian was also very responsive and able to accommodate our special requests. Looking forward to staying again!
