About Lucija

I am energetic, happy, caring and fun loving Austinite. I was born in Croatia and got to Texas as fast as I could!

Lucija purchased this house in 2009

Why Lucija chose Camelot

The house has the feel of a very private retreat. It is so peaceful and relaxing, yet all of Austin's fantastic entertainment is easily accessible.

What makes this house unique

The vaulted ceilings in the master bathroom are truly unique.

Will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

Lucy welcomed us and showed us around the house upon our arrival and we immediately fell in love with her beautiful house. (Pictures do not do it justice!) The location is perfect -- not too far from downtown and was so peacefully quiet. My family stayed here during our wedding weekend. (Our wedding was at the Four Seasons) The house was more than perfect and Lucy's hospitality was so warm and welcoming. We will definitely return! Thank you SO MUCH, Lucy!!!

Great house in Austin, Texas

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 13 consisting of 3 generations. The house is amazing, with nooks and crannies and surprises everywhere. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, the beds are large and comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. There was enough space in the dining area to seat all 13 of us, a rare thing in most vacation houses.The house had Christmas decorations inside and out which was a bonus since we had no time to do anything like that. The area is in a lovely part of Austin, not far from downtown and very near Zilker Park and Barton Springs. Lucy could not have been more gracious and fulfilled our needs right away, not that we had that many given how well supplied the house is. We recommend this house to any large family or group. The only problem would be for someone who has difficulty with stairs. There are several 2-step areas in the house which could be a problem to a handicapped person.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family arrived at Lucy's property for our Thanksgiving family get together and we were delighted as we toured the home. The home is decorated with many unique and beautiful art objects and paintings. The house is gorgeous and comfortably inviting all at the same time. Nice view of the Hill Country from the backyard. The beds were comfortable and Lucy has a well stocked kitchen. My sister-in-law and I enjoyed cooking Thanksgiving dinner in the beautiful kitchen. We all enjoyed taking the hike down the trail that starts in the back yard and goes down the hill. Everyone enjoyed our stay at the house, from the youngest to the older members of the family. Thank you Lucy for sharing your home with my family. Staying there made Thanksgiving special!

Awesome home and property

  • 5 of 5

Pictures and words do not do justice to this amazing house. The house is well furnished and immaculate. Anything you need for a stay is there. The owner, Lucy, called to make sure everything was okay and also came to meet us. She was very nice and accommodating. The property is beautiful with gorgeous views, quiet, and secluded but with easy access to downtown. When we return to Austin we will definitely be staying here again. I cannot say enough good about this house and our experience.

The house was unique and awesome decorated and filled with EVERYTHING you need

  • 5 of 5

Lucy and her husband went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable ( including setting up a crib for our granddaughter) and bringing over activities for our 7 and 5 year old grandchildren. The house was immaculate and very welcoming. The outside space had tables and a grill which we used several nights and the views from the backyard space were spectacular! The house is in a secluded beautiful area in hill country, but we were able to easily get in and out of Austin . We would definitely stay here again

An Enchanted Cottage Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This trip was a family get away with female cousins and aunts to just have a fun "girls' trip" and make a few memories. When we arrived we dubbed the house the "Enchanted Cottage." It is my no means small - it's very large and can accommodate a lot of people -- but it has all these twists and turns and has an air of whimsy to it that we all just loved. The master bath was DIVINE and we loved cooking together in the kitchen. At night we had plenty of room to all sit in the family room and just chat (there were 8 of us). And we didn't have to fight over bathrooms as there were plenty. We loved having the ability to rush out because housecleaning was coming like a traditional hotel and it was great not to eat out all of the time. The only negative was the large deposit but it was refunded very quickly! It was hot at steamy during our trip so we didn't get to enjoy the large backyard but if it had been cooler I am sure we would have taken our glasses of wine, lit the grill and dined under a beautiful Texas sky. There is so much to this property so if you have a large group, this is a must. And if you're a bit smaller in numbers it's still a great place to just "be" for a few days!
