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.

Great fun for a family get-away!

  • 4 of 5

Lots to do for everyone in the family. Loads of room for everyone to spread out. Quiet, peaceful, without noisy or intruding neighbors. Pleasant interactions setting up visit. Everything clean and available when we arrived. Close to grocery store and other services.

Negatives - entire property needs a bit of TLC. Grills in terrible shape - plan to bring your own. Charcoal grill falling apart. Gas grill so dirty it quickly flared up and ruined about $200 worth of steaks.

We would return if property get needed maintenance.

Thanks for a great weekend!

Great Fun on the River!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for a reunion. I especially liked how every bedroom had it's own bath. I also liked that 3 of the bedrooms were very private away from the rest of the group. This is great for those that need that quiet space. There was lots to do with the outside stuff and the river was fun to play in. The traffic on the river was light, even on the weekend. This suited us great.

The downside, we needed more pantry space and more sitting inside. They have a nice big room and one table for 4. They do have many bar stools though. But it's hard to play cards on the bar.

Bigger than you'd think!

  • 5 of 5

This place is huuuuge! We spent the majority of our time in the yard throwing shoes and watching the water. Awesome fire pit, outside bar WITH extra fridge/sink/flatscreen. Bathrooms galore and epic bluetooth stereo (over the inside TV) with indoor AND outdoor speakers. Totally separate stereo in/at the outside bar. If you're planning a family outting, this place will work perfectly! It IS a little far from town, so grab what you need for the weekend and park it!

Peaceful time with family!

  • 4 of 5

A bathroom to every bedroom was great! House keeping was poor. Our feet were black walking inside the house. Floors had been swept but not moped!

Perfect for large groups

  • 4 of 5

I rented this for a family get together and the arrangement was darn near perfect. Privacy is possible with the upstairs and detached rooms, the house itself is large and roomy. The view is wonderful. This home is a work in progress and the owners were great to work with. My grandkids are already asking when can we go back to the river house!

Perfect Thanksgiving

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our thanksgiving family reunion. Didn't hurt that the weather was perfect. The kitchen is well appointed with most every pot and pan you'd need. Bring your own plastic containers and baggies, of course. The rooms were spacious and the ac/heat worked well. Wifi didn't work (as indicated by the owners). Not a good place to sit to eat for a large group inside. Luckily the weather was great and we could eat outside, but the eating space in the house was not good. There is plenty of room for a long table, but instead there was an interesting but functionally useless piece of furniture that looks like it could be a good place to sit and eat, but is awkward. Outside spaces are very nice. The lake/river at this end was peaceful and serene. I don't know how it is in the summer. But it really is a beautiful setting. The Ritz it's not, but it was very nice for what we needed. We are contemplating coming back during the summer. :)
