Shawn and Jackie O'Farrell live in Austin, Texas and have 3 children. We are both professionals in high tech. Our children are very active in sports which precludes us from going to our home in Horseshoe Bay as much as we would like which is why we rent it out.
Jackie O'Farrell purchased this house in 2006
We loved Lake LBJ because it is a constant level lake and enables you to have a home very near the lake because flooding will not happen. Additionally, we loved the Horseshoe Bay area because it is close to Austin and also home to many restaurants and amenities. Additionally, it is close to Marble Falls which also has great restaurants and bars with entertainment.
We have 175 ft of beautiful open water front. We can view both the sunrise and sunset over the water from our property. The water in front of our home is clear and around 7 feet deep and protected from boaters by our boathouse. We have a water trampoline which the kids love to play on as well as kayaks and a large party deck on top of the boathouse which is great for family gatherings. Additionally, our home has an open floorplan along with a pool table which is fun for families that want to enjoy the evenings together.
We loved this lakehouse! In a fantastic area with amazing homes nearby. It has been completely remodeled recently and is well furnished. So much lakefront just steps from the back door. The house is really set up for a lot of people. There were 16 of us, and when we hung out on the back porch, there were plenty of chairs and tables, and lots of elbow room. It's hard to tell from the posted pictures, but there is a dining room table, not just a pool table in the dining room. Lots of barstools, too. There was no sleeper sofa/futon that we could find. There is a full size air matress available, but if you want to sleep the full 16, bring more air matresses or plan on 2 people on sofas.
Our family stayed for 5 days at this home. It was very comfortable. The listing was very accurate as far as amenities. There was plenty of space for all of us. We liked using the kayaks a lot. I am glad there was plenty of life jackets and paddles for everyone. Even though the wallpaper dates when the house was built, it's a great place to stay. The kitchen was very roomy and we made several meals there. I liked that the kitchen had labels that made it very easy to navigate. I liked that the whole family fit at the large dining table. (We were worried there was no indoor table since there were no pictures of it but there is actually one inside and outside). The only downsides that we noticed was there was a large amount of spiders on the chairs on the party deck. While watching TV out there, 2 spiders crawled on family members and we found spider webs on just about every chair. Also we found at least 3 lizards (about 8in long from nose to tip of tail) INSIDE the house. Besides the critters, the backyard and balcony needed a good sweeping. There was lots of leaves and acorns all over. The inside of the house was clean but it needed to be dusted. Other than that it was a very enjoyable stay. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. During our stay, it got cold enough for us to use the wood burning fire place! The best part about this place is the view!! Lots of windows facing the lake was a huge plus for us!
We loved our Thanksgiving stay. Plenty of room for several families. Great entertainment - kayaking, corn hole and pool. The large dining tables both in and outside were great gathering for meals.
The O'Farrell house is a great facility for a trip to Horseshoe Bay. It has everything you need in a lake house. Awesome location!
This was our second year in a row to stay at the Lake House for an office retreat. There is plenty of room (beds, baths, living) for the 14 people that we had, this is a plus. The minus is the house is in need of major repair and clean up, mostly on the outside (house and grounds). This is such a beautiful property with the lake and outdoor living, too bad that it's not enjoyable because of the disrepair.
We really enjoyed our stay in this home. It's very spacious and we had plenty of room for our family. We enjoyed the paddle boards and all the games they have available for tenants to use. We will definitely be returning to stay here again.
Home sits right on the lake near Horseshoe Bay. Horseshoe Bay as well as waterpark are nearby. Town of Marble Falls is only 5 miles away.
Other Activities: miniature golf
