We are on a quieter part of the lake (the Llano River) which is great for swimming, fishing and boating.

About The Thawley and Hurst Families

Our two families co-own this lake house together. We have been friends for over 15 years and both have young children and live in Austin. We decided to purchase this house together so we can get away from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoy the relaxing lake life with our children.

When we are not using the house, we love to share our home with other families so you can enjoy it as much as our families do.

The Thawley and Hurst Families purchased this house in 2014

Why The Thawley and Hurst Families chose Kingsland

We chose this property for the child friendly sandy beach water access, great views, and serenity within just over an hour of Austin. It is fantastic how many people it sleeps comfortably while still allowing privacy. It is simply a great place to hang out and relax with family and friends.

What makes this house unique

The gradual sloping sandy beach is perfect for kids and adults, and the large footprint home accommodates 3 families with children wonderfully. The outside patio is such a great way to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.

Great property! Lots of space, great amenities, wonderful lake. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very accommodating. The house was cleaned and well stocked. We took our boat and tied it up to the dock overnight. There were multiple families with kids ranging from 1 to 11, yet there was enough space and activities for everyone to enjoy. This was a fantastic weekend!

The property was spacious and very nice. Our family had a wonderful vacation. We rented a boat, and it was so easy to keep it overnight at the property. The beach access was so convenient.

Great family location

  • 5 of 5

The lake house is pretty much as everyone else reviewed it so wonderfully. Gracious and helpful hosts, a beach for the younger children and place to dock your boat for the whole family. We rented a boat and jet ski. Loved the porch swing in the mornings and evenings, and the alligator bench inside was a favorite! The weather was perfect while we were there. Two days of a nice breeze, great tubing, and then two days when the younger grandchild liked the tubing better with less waves. We were pleasantly surprised that there were no mosquitoes. Not much in the way of places to eat out nearby. We found a few, but we were happy just staying at the lake house.

Owner's Response: So glad you all enjoyed your time at the lake! There are a few places we would recommend to eat nearby--Grand Central Cafe, Alfredo's Mexican, and Spyke's BBQ are all a short drive in Kingsland. We hope to have you guys back again next summer!

Family reunion destination made perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this spacious, beautifully decorated and fully-equipped home off the Llano River, which connects within minutes to Lake LBJ. The sandy beach and Adirondack chairs lined up under the lakeside canopy provided a perfect spot to watch our kids swim while sipping a cold drink. There were plenty of places for the group to spread out the day of our event whether eating or playing cards, it provided all the right nooks and crannies for us all. The owners' communication and responsiveness far surpassed our expectations as questions came up as well. Thank you for making our special family gathering perfect!

We had a very nice time and especially enjoyed the beach and patio. We did spot several cockroaches in the house and don't believe we brought them with us. Thanks so much. I am wondering if we will get our deposit of $150 back. Hopefully you found the property in good condition after our stay.

Owner's Response: Hey there- I am so glad to hear you guys had a nice time at the lake and am very sorry to hear that you saw cockroaches. We get the home sprayed 4 times a year so hopefully they were at least dead! Unfortunately little pesks like that are part of lake living but we do try our best to keep them away. Hope to have you back again! Emily
