Kingsland House Rental Photos and Description

3BR/2BA Sleeps 8 Comfy; Boat Rentals Available

Great water and view, comfortable house and price. Easy rental of boats available. Sorry, no pets allowed.

Few homes in Texas have the special combination of smooth water for sports, a view of mountains, a private sandy island, room to dock your boats onsite and a very comfortable place to sleep 8.

After looking at many lakes and rivers, this is the best scenery and home for your budget. Visitors say this is an outstanding setting without blowing your allowance. Lake is always full even during droughts, mountain is striking to admire, island sand is nice on the toes, house is so comfortable.

Designed for views of the water and mountain, the house is open and bright with lots of large windows wrapped around the house. We make sure that you have everything you need for a great getaway.

Master bedroom has a king bed and full bath.

The second bathroom features bright, happy decor.

Ceiling fans in every room, including the big porch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was great! We went to Fredricksburg and to the Bell Winery. It is beautiful there and you were right about the drive. Thank you so much for letting us borrow your home. I hope we left everything the way you liked. If we ever make it back that way we will definitely be in contact! (I bought 6 bottles of wine on this trip). :)

Beautiful place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this property! Sandy beach was a great place for our kids to play. We enjoyed the skiing in the area and being able to dock at the house. Host was very helpful and responsive to our needs. Thanks so much for a fun weekend!

Great lake location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Labor Day weekend (2016) at the Water Mountain Retreat House. The home was very clean and comfortable, and the owner, Scott, was very accommodating. If you are a boater, you cannot beat this location! You can tie your boat off in the protected channel and be on the lake in a matter of minutes. Also, the views across the lake at Packsaddle Mountain are gorgeous. We will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the helpful feedback about the benefit of the protected docking area at our seawall. It's great to be right on the open water and yet always have calm water for the boat tie-off. We look forward to hosting your family again!

Best Yet!

  • 5 of 5

We rent a home every year on the Highland Lake area. I grew up in Sunrise Beach.. This was the best that we have ever had. The kids loved the little pontoon float to get to the island and it felt like we were at the beach with all the sand.. What a treat.. The neighbors were not intrusive nor the owners which was especially nice.. Overall, an A+

Great location on the lake for an affordable price

  • 5 of 5

Scott,

Thanks, we had a great time! The views, lawn, and island were big hits.

The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. Thanks for helping with the boat, that all went smoothly. You have a great place there to

enjoy the lake, sunsets, and the starry nights.

Lots of Fun

  • 5 of 5

The house is so cute and comfortable. The lake area is fun and relaxing with wonderful views and sunsets . The kids loved the pontoon raft! The owners are helpful, nice, and friendly. We had a great time and have booked it again in August for some waterskiing. The water area is great for boating activities also. It was affordable and worth every penny!

Owner's Response: You certainly know how to make the most of a summer with a BBQ cookoff and then a water sports week! Does it get any better? We look forward to hosting you and family when you return again next month.

Escape to our private island at this waterfront home, located on the Llano River arm of Lake LBJ. The smooth water is ideal for water sports and the sandy beach is perfect for wading or building sand castles at the water's edge. Enjoy the panoramic view of the lake, land, and Packsaddle Mountains from wall-to-wall windows in nearly every room. The spacious living room, sunroom and screened porch flow together for easy entertaining.
