Topics: homes


Vintage Oaks is the fastest-growing community in the Hill Country for five consecutive years and its popularity among Texas veterans is a large part of the reason. So why are so many veterans drawn to this New Braunfels masterplanned community to buy Texas land and build or buy a home? The location, the land and home options, the amenities, and the welcoming environment, for starters.

They love the commitment to veterans

The veteran-friendly community of Vintage Oaks is home to many military members and veterans and is also a tremendous supporter of the military community through its longstanding partnership with non-profit Operation FINALLY Home (OFH), offering homesites and mortgage-free homes to wounded veterans. Vintage Oaks developer SouthStar Communities and OFH have partnered on numerous mortgage-free homes for American heroes in the community.

In addition, The Veteran's Walk is a special area adjacent to Timber Ridge Park that honors veterans in the Vintage Oaks community and surrounding area with stones inscribed with veteran’s name, where they served, and their dates of service, as well as a private paths for reflection. 

They love being around like-minded people

Vintage Oaks is filled with veterans who love being around those with similar experiences, whether that be a shared background in the military or common interests to enjoy during leisure time.

“We enjoy the pool, Lazy River, BBQ area, sports areas, and walking/biking trails. We have attended the live concerts and the various family events. Once I fully retire, I hope to become more involved in a golf group and will soon become involved in the new Veterans group,” said owner Steve Caberto, who formerly lived in Germany with wife Amy with the United States Air Force.

They love the high standards

“I love the Marine Corps. I’m a retired Marine, so I expect high standards of the people I deal with. It was just an awesome experience,” said Vintage Oaks owner, Frank Tapia, of purchasing at Vintage Oaks.

They love the location

Vintage Oaks’ location, right on the Texas Wine Trail in the fast-growing city of New Braunfels, affords a unique combination of serenity and convenience. Nothing beats the natural beauty you get to experience from here. Miles-long views and towering oak trees are enjoyed all throughout the community, and right from the homesites. The natural topography and jaw-dropping vistas from the newly released properties in The Bluffs have made it the fastest-selling community in the history of Vintage Oaks.

The community is also convenient to area military and veteran’s services including Randolph Air Force Base and the New Braunfels VA Clinic.
