About Mary Warwick

My husband, Todd grew up in Katy, TX and I in Houston TX and after driving up many of weekends to the Austin area, we decided to make the move to Austin then a few years later were lucky enough to relocate to a home on lake Buchanan and enjoy the entire weekend on the water. Our passions include boating, soaking and floating on the lake while enjoying music with friends.

Mary Warwick purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary Warwick chose Lake LBJ

With a constant level lake and great water view, this property also provided easy access to the main lake. Load the coolers and hop on the boat and/or jet skis and have some fun in the sun. After a day on the water, sit back on the decks and enjoy the sunset on the water directly in front of the house.

What makes this house unique

No-wake cove safe for swimming, fishing and docking watercraft without the noise and hassle of heavy boat traffic which create big wakes that beat up you and your boat.

No hassle pontoon boat rental is exclusively for our guests at very competitive rate.

Did I mention that Lake LBJ is a CONSTANT LEVEL lake so no need to worry about the water levels even during a drought.

We had a blast staying at this home. Relaxing and all the details of them come are unique and cute. The owner did a great job decorating this home. Water pressure was amazing. Mary was great to work with leading up and during our stay. Planing a family outing for this house soon.

Beautiful home and landscaping, well stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture!

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely. The beds slept like a dream. The outdoor spaces and living spaces were very comfortable. The kayaks were a nice bonus. The kitchen has every thing you need and then some. The owner, Mary, was very attentive...she called the morning of the rental to confirm our arrival time and she called once we arrived to make sure all was as expected. I will recommend this property and hope to stay here again.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and stocked with everything you need to enjoy time away. The main channel is only about a 3 minute boat ride from the house. Close to grocery store and restaurants.

Mary provides a book with information on local things to do and was prompt responding to questions. Would stay again...

High End Property a bit run down

  • 4 of 5

The pictures of this property are a bit deceiving b/c they are very dated. Original owners were Master Gardeners who created the fabulous landscape pictured here. New owners have left the yard unattended and overgrown thus the fire pit area is half the size seen here and the fountain is hidden in a tangle of greenery. Wasps occupy several storage bins. The seating area/hot tub area below house is nice, but somewhat worn. We had to repair one of the kayaks before use. Long flight of stairs to get to house so you best be in good shape. Upstairs porch run down with only 3 cushions for 4 patio chairs and fabric was tattered. Looked like the grill cover had been heaped in the corner for a long time. Late Saturday evening - day two of our stay - the front door latch came apart making the door impossible to open. We repaired that along with the top dishwasher rack that came off rails if pulled out to load the back. Refrigerator interior trim kept popping off. Kitchen cabinets were a mess of items stuffed in without any organization. Dishes were chipped and plastic glasses looked so bad we opted for Solo cups. Living area smaller than it looks but Very Tall. We rented the boat offered with the house. I caution others to do this. The hourly meter for the boat engine is a great idea but fair warning, if anything on the boat breaks, it is your fault and you will pay for repairs AND ALL rental downtime owners miss. This is an older boat that will need routine repairs. We put the free standing tray table away b/c it had a big crack in it and didn't want to be held liable. I'm making it sound like we had a miserable weekend but that is not true. We had a super family weekend and laugh about the house issues. Our gang loves to cook, garden and be outdoors so it was hard not to fix problems we encountered. I don't plan on staying here again but if the owners would spend a little more time & money maintaining this High End property it could be so much nicer.

Owner's Response: In response to this review, I wanted to address it head on. We post on the refrigerator both home and cell number for both of us and tell everyone to call us if you need anything. When Mary checked in with them at the end of their stay, this guest said everything was great. This guest did not call ONCE to tell us anything was wrong and the next day after leaving they sent a text and wanted me to pay them for fixing the front door lock in which it was not even fixed, and for putting a screw into the back of the seat on the Kayak that had fallen out. When I refused to pay them for the repairs they claimed they did, I guess this is their way of getting back at us. The lock mechanism broke and I had to replace the entire door latch in which I completed immediately after I was aware of the issue as I do with ALL repairs that are needed. The landscaping is all about preference. This is not your city house where everything is edged and neat. However, they are right in the fact that is does need to be trimmed back by the fire pit area and it has been on my landscapers list of things to do but he had not gotten to it. I will be speaking to him about it again. The fountain/pond has lilies in it and gets trimmed back once a year. We prefer the lilies in it which product a beautiful flower most of the summer. As far as the boat….We have never charged anyone for normal wear and tear and only charge for "damage" if it is VERY obvious that it was done by the renter and even that is rare. This boat has regular maintenance done to it by a certified mechanic. They are correct….This is not a brand new boat. A new boat rental would cost ~$550/day. We rent this boat out for $600 for the entire stay. We have many repeat customers that rent the boat each time they stay. Bottom line is, I think the long list of reviews speak for themselves.
