                                                                Marci C.

                                                                Wow. I almost don't want to write this review and let people know about this gem we just discovered in Kingsland, Tx! We surprised my dad for his 70th birthday, and both me and my sister's family came along with our parents. We had 5 kids age 9 and under and the place couldn't have been more perfect. From the moment we got there the kids ran into the backyard and played on the private lake beach for 2 days straight in January! They paddled around in kayaks, dug in the sand, waded in the water. After dinner we roasted smores on the firepit on the back patio. The rest of us sat around in the comfy chairs with our coffee and talked while the kids played outside for 2 days straight. Not once did anyone ask for an iPad to play on. Ping Pong in the living room, a basketball hoop in the driveway, the kids couldn't have had more fun. The view of the hill country and the lake was beautiful to look at from the kitchen and breakfast room, and there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The kids loved the bunk room and the adults loved the private balconies from their bedrooms. I can't wait to go back!

                                                                The lake was absolutely beautiful especially early in the morning. True a lovely place for fsmily!

                                                                Carol T.Don't know what this means??

                                                                The house worked very well for us. It was spotless, very neat and clean with all the necessary kitchen items and misc. items we needed. We would stay there again .

                                                                Extended family trip

                                                                kathy p.

                                                                We were a group ranging in age from 82 to 1. The house and beach were great. Even though the house and separate room/bathroom will sleep at least 12....that doesn't mean privacy for over 8 just in case that's important. But everything we needed was there and it was very clean. The property managers, Jon and Casey, were very accessible and responsive to needs or questions. The only down side was the lack of shade/protection from sun on the porch. It was great in the morning but after 12:30 it was unbearable in the heat. Some sort of extended roof or awning would make sitting out side much more enjoyable. In spite of that, we will definitely return!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We have some great news! The kitchen was recently remodeled and we're installing a rectractable awning on the patio this winter 2018. Stay tuned for official announcement.

New carpet and a well-stocked kitchen were a nice surprise :) With 6 grandchildren and 8 adults, we all found great opportunities for R&R! Management was responsive and prompt when we had a need. Such a singular setting with lake & beach activities a few steps from the deck.

Can't say enough good things! The house was impeccably clean, located close to a grocery store, had everything we needed to have fun, and fit everyone so comfortably!
