About Tommy Cain

I have been a real estate broker in The Lake area for over 30 years specializing in waterfront properties. All of my children have grown up on Lake Austin. I have built all of my homes on this lake. This is my latest creation. The lake has been my family's life. I am a Lake Austin Specialist. My company, La Hacienda Professionals LLC is a Full Service Real Estate organization. Besides Lake Austin properties, we also specialize in Commercial, Residential, all of The Highland Lakes, commercial-residential leases and development.

Tommy Cain purchased this estate in 2012

Why Tommy Cain chose Austin

You won't find another getaway like this, hidden from the rest of the world. One way in and One way out. The locals don't know about this Heaven on Earth. This area of the lake has been my home for nearly 30 years. This is the quiet end of Lake Austin with the clearest water, best fishing and perfect for all water sports. Incredibly beautiful and tranquil. Very PRIVATE. Your in a secluded country environment and just minutes from shopping, GOLD and restaurants.

What makes this estate unique

This is a constant level lake. Our dock is always in the same spot. If you were on Lake Travis, you would have to walk a mile to your dock unless it was already stuck on land. We are 25 minutes to Austin. Incredible City with incredible sight seeing, restaurants, Live Music everywhere, all the time! Its a must to go to Hamilton Pool, Krause Springs, Barton Springs, Inner Space Caverns, Pedernales Falls State Park and many more! And, the 'Sunset Capital of Texas,' The Oasis, is located just 10 minutes away.

Beautiful Quiet Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely. Tommy was very accessible, friendly, and helpful. The property was very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed dinner at The Plate one night, but mostly cooked/grilled at the house. There was plenty of cookware and eating utensils. The beds were comfortable and had plenty of pillows. The two dishwashers were a plus and the master bath was a dream. The yard was huge and very well maintained. We had a great stay. Thank you Tommy!

Wonderful family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed staying at 607 River Td for Thanksgiving! We had 11 adults, and 3 babies/toddlers and we had tons of room to engage, relax & play! Tommy was very helpful in setting us up and making sure we had all we needed. We elected to do the boat ride one day and it was awesome! The only note is that there are 4 bedrooms, not 5. The double bunk beds are on a landing so it's not an enclosed bedroom. Other than that, everything was exactly as billed and a great place to stay! Highly recommend!

Great House For Any Large Group

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible and very well maintained. It felt like brand new yet fully furnished. Tommy was very accommodating to a few small requests and check-out process was painless. My parents and my groomsmen stayed for a couple of days before my wedding. The cell service was not the best but Tommy added our numbers to the cellular booster so we didn't experience any issues. Would recommend this property to anyone.

Great Family Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and well maintained. The kitchen has all the basic appliances. Tommy was very helpful before, during and after our stay. We took our boat and he helped us put the boat in the water and dock it in the back yard. We would stay here again.
