The Bomb

  • 5 of 5

I am writing a review as Kaitlin emailed me and so kindly asked if I could.

First off their are only 3 real condo options in HSB..places that are WAY up on the hill overlooking the water but too far from the water for the price, dumps in Cottonwood or HIGH priced condos in the resort by the water. This condo is on the water but an exception to this rule! this place is the LOWEST priced 1 bedroom condo in the resort area. It's even lower than the hotels in marble falls and it's on the water, I repeat ON THE WATER! I should know. I'm a cheap bastard so I contacted every place similarly priced. Clean, well kept, spacious for a 1 bedroom and perfect location. Owner is honest and easy to deal with. You read her rates right. She's not a dim lady but an honest one. She realizes her rates are low but wants others "to enjoy her condo at a reasonable rate" can you believe that !?!?!?

My 2 sons and I have been coming to HSB for almost 5 years now. Like others stated, the resort is lovely but outrageously expensive. I rented 2 other condos I found on vrbo before this one. The first stay started off rough as the pictures were a crock! The condo was way up on the hill overlooking HSB. My bad, I should have asked more prying questions like " Are your photos deceptive?" "Are these photos of your condo 10 years old", "Are your reviews obvious fakes?" but I digress. The second stay was in the building across from this one. Stay went well, I paid an arm and a leg but was happy with my overpriced stay. Until a week later the owner informs me he's keeping my deposit for some trumped up damages. That's another, unsettling story (ask lots of questions and read ALL the listing's reviews. I could have saved myself a ton of $ and headache) Ok, so I decide to try HSB one more time and I find this place. I asked a million questions and the ever patient owner answered everyone promptly. Booked it and I've never looked back. We've stayed here 5 times total. I haven't reviewed sooner out of selfish reasons, I don't want others finding out about this place. But, said owner kindly asked I review and after all these years coming to her place I felt she deserved a review. This place is the bomb, she's a boss and you won't regret renting here. Now just don't book on my weeks! Cheers! Tommy

Can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

Contacted approx 15 other listings before we found this gem! Every single other place we considered had bogus non listed hidden extra fees and taxes that made the "cheap" rate skyrocket once it was all added up. Thank God we kept looking and my husband found this listing. Almost booked unit in same building as this one but at double the cost (after all those pesky hidden fees!!!!). This one was only the daily rate plus tax (not even a deposit). Very happy with our stay. Nice condo with spectacular water view! Loved the balcony. Total plus...very nice, HONEST owner! Will be back!!

Last summer get away

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place and I can not say enough good things about it. The property was very clean and very spacious and you just can't beat the location. Sitting on the balcony over looking the lake was so peaceful. Pool was awesome as well. My kids and I just hung out while my husband went to boat races so we were without a vehicle but still used the resort tram that went all over as they would just say all aboard and never asked where you were staying. The yacht club is next door and you could catch the tram from there up to the hotel and back. The only thing I do suggest is if you have a lot of things to take into condo from car is a cart or collapsible wagon. In hopes to make many trips back. Property owners very quick to reply with questions and give you ample of info to find everything you need.

Paradise on Lake LBJ!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in the "Lonesome Dove" suite in the Waters Building at the Horseshoe Bay Resort. This one bedroom condo was right on Lake LBJ and made for a great getaway for my wife and I. The condo was everything as advertised by the owner. What a pleasure it was to work with the owner of this condo. All of our questions were answered prior to our arrival. Great location for Hill Country activities and close to lots of super restaurants in the local area. If you are interested in a great place to stay don't hesitate to check out the "Lonesome Dove", you won't be disappointed. We will be back. Thanks for a great stay.

We just returned from another great stay at this property. It was our 2nd stay in the past 6 months. We plan to return in the fall. "Lonesome Dove" is everything as advertised and maybe a little more.
