Airbnb & Vrbo Vacation Rental Management for New Braunfels

About Us

Hi, I'm Kristian Lewis, owner of Grand Welcome New Braunfels, a full-service, boutique-style vacation rental management company, focused on serving our local Texas community with one-on-one, personalized Airbnb and Vrbo property management.

I believe in “success through service,” so by mixing a personal touch with the latest technologies and data-driven strategies, we can ensure outstanding property performance. My team has years of experience in customer relations, marketing, project management, and advertising, so I know exactly how to promote properties and attract high-quality guests.


At Grand Welcome of New Braunfels, our mission is to perfect the art of short-term vacation rental property management by bridging the service gap between national competitors who only offer either partial or a “one size fits all” management approach and smaller local companies who aren't equipped to maximize rental income because the lack resources like dynamic pricing capabilities and national brand recognition.

We prioritize the unique needs of each of our four clients:

  • Owners: We partner with real estate investors and vacation homeowners to provide unparalleled, personalized service to help maximize earning potential and realize individual goals, while maintaining direct, honest communication.
  • Guests: We strive to create unforgettable experiences by offering seamless stays, exceptional customer service, and access to the best local vendors and attractions.
  • Properties: We are committed to ensuring that every property under our management is meticulously maintained, fully optimized, and always held to our highest quality standards.
  • Local community: We believe in promoting economic growth and community development by working closely with local vendors and organizations, and by supporting charitable initiatives that make a positive impact in the areas we serve.

About US

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!

What I Love About New Braunfels

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.
