About David Keener

Boating snob who's inboard ski boats have not been on a lake in over 15 years who grew up skiing on rivers and canals in South Texas and Florida.

David Keener purchased this house in 2012

Why David Keener chose Texas

When moving to DFW in 1995 took me just one week to discover the Brazos River both the Tin Top and Kimball Bend sections. After continued low water situations associated with Kimball Bend and Lake Whitney purchased first home along Tin Top section over 10 years ago. Just purchased this home as it is truly located one one of the most pristine sections of river in very private setting.

What makes this house unique

Put on wake board or skis and go from the dock tell tell driver to go left or right for miles of glass smooth water.

Amazing private large shaded lot over looking the Brazos River when not out on boat sit back and watch some of the best wake boarders around do flips in front of home.

Close enough to town to go into work if you have to over longer stay.

Lots of room

  • 2 of 5

We had a great time and there was plenty of room for all 15 of us!

PROS: The kitchen is huge and has everything you may need to cook with. A/C works great! Hot Tub was awesome.

However, we were disappointed in a few things..

CONS: Outdoor Cabana refrigerator was missing (so we had to make several Ice runs to the store) We were really looking forward to hanging out in the outdoor cabana and watching football but we could not get the TV to work at all. WIFI pretty much doesn't work. Our first night there, while getting all the kids to bed we found an electrocuted dead mouse in the bunk room- it was stuck BC there was no plate cover over the outlet. our first day there we jumped into the river and there were 4 water snakes swimming under the dock and climbing on the ladder and rafters. I know that's uncontrollable, but the kids refused to get in the water after seeing the snakes. Then our last full day/night there we woke up that morning and had no water. I called the property maintenance and I know it was 9am on a Sunday, but the woman I spoke to sounded a little annoyed, she stated she would be on her way from Granbury. After they arrived I received a call I believe from the owner, Talia. She was very nice but had to deliver the bad news that the water well had broke and we had to leave. She was very accommodating and apologetic, they offered us another rental to go to for our last day but it was a smaller home so we declined and went home a day early. They did credit us back for the full day lost.

Beyond Expectation

  • 4 of 5

We were thrilled about this location. We had a family reunion there with four different couples and a plethora of kids. Each couple had their own room and bed, and the children were all able to stay in the "bunk room", which they loved. The kitchen was a great size for multiple cooks. The water on the river was the perfect depth. It was shallow at first but reached over the head on the other side of the dock. The management was easy to work with and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend this place!

Our only downside was that the hot tub was needing repair (which they let us know when we got there) and the wifi doesn't work great. Very minor concerns for us, and will definitely not what we remember about the fun filled week. My kids are already asking when we can go back.

Miles Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family reunion and it was a wonderful location that worked very well for our needs. The quite location at the end of the road and on the banks of the Brazos river was beautiful. We used the outdoor fire pit for cooking steaks and enjoyed the washer pits. The dock was a perfect place to enjoy the sunset and fishing most anytime of the day. The house had plenty of room for everyone to spend time together or in small groups. Would recommend this house to anyone looking to get away for a nice quite vacation.

One down side the hot tub was still not working.

Perfect for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for a large group. Plenty of beds and bathrooms. There was so much to do, ping pong, volleyball, horseshoes and just relaxing! Quick trip into Granbury for a show at the opera house. I will definitely consider a return visit to this little piece of paradise.

Everything a group needs for FUN!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed there for three nights for a little family reunion. We filled up the place and it was very comfortable. We kayaked, fished, used the firepit, the kids loved the trampoline, there was always someone on that thing! There are washers and horseshoes, fishing poles, life jackets....everything you need or want!

Of course, the cabana was the biggest hit. We watched the Texas-OU game all together out there...the weather was perfect and it became our gathering place.

There were a few little glitches, but Rocky the maintenance man was quick to respond. We will be back!!! Thanks for the great place!
