There is a master with king bed and private bath, 2 queen rooms - one with private half bath, King room, bunk rooms with 3 bunk beds (full beds on bottom and twin on top) as well as a nursery with a crib. It is baby and toddler friendly and is equipped with the crib room, high chair, covered sockets and all one floor.

The back and side porch overlook the beautiful views of the lake and packsaddle mountain. The beach has a nice large pavilion with fans over the sand and a dock that you can tie a boat up to.

House is equipped with satellite television, Apple TV including Netflix, DVD and highspeed WiFi.

In Kingsland, you can rent boats, jet skis and everything you need to enjoy the lake. Boats can be tied up for the night (we have locking chains) on the beach in front of the home so you don't lose any lake time.

We are on a quieter part of the lake (the Llano River) which is great for swimming, fishing and boating. The sandy beach in front of the house has a gentle slope which is great for kids and adults to enjoy the water.

Kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prepare your own meals, and local grocery and restaurants are within 5 minutes drive.

Parking is included for up to 4 cars.

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 Lake LBJ

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 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

The property was even better than the pictures!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was even better than the pictures and description. The house was immaculate, the beds were comfortable and there was room for everyone. I was there over Thanksgiving with my two sons and their families. We made a fire every night in the fire pit and watched the beautiful sunset. Early mornings we took our coffee down to the sandy beach and enjoyed the peace and quiet as the mist rose up off of the lake. We could have not asked for a better experience. Jeff was easily accessible by text and so easy to work with. We will definitely rent this property again. Karen

Fantastic time for all

  • 5 of 5

The kids loved burying grandma and grandpa in the sand! The sandy bottom and slow incline made for the best place to play in the water that I've found at LBJ. Mooring the boat on the sandy beach was easy and the chain held the boat tight - even during an afternoon storm. It was great to be able to ski/wakeboard/tube right in front of the property, allowing those on shore (or even in the cool house) to watch.

Communication with the owner, Jeff, was superb. There was a problem upon our arrival, the trash had been torn into be some animals. Jeff immediately worked to resolve this problem.

Thanks for a wonderful time,

Great vacation on Lake LBJ.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house to have a family vacation. It is really spacious and the location for kids right on the shallow water is really great.

Lots of activities around for short field day trips. Inks Lake near by has great cliffs for the kids to jump off, and Longhorn Cavern is right down the road from Inks Lake.
