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.

Will definitely return!
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!!!
College graduation made special.
We enjoyed our graduation weekend by sharing this very interesting and unique home with family. It was very nice to be able to host a few friends to celebrate. Lucy and Doug were extremely friendly hosts! They were very helpful and even came to us a midnight when a problem arose. Every college guest was most interested to take a tour of this entire house!
Thank you for a very memorable weekend!
The house was exceptional!
We came to Austin with 4 couples looking for a place to accommodate us all and we found it here. Lucy was great and couldn't have been more helpful. When the 4 ladies in our group inquired about extra hair dryers, Lucy dropped some off. The hospitality was wonderful, the house immaculate, and our time in Austin was amazing. We would stay here again if we came to town. Great house.
Beautiful House and Property.
We had a wonderful time on this property in April 2018. 4 couples stayed in the house and the house is lovely. The property is set on a beautiful piece of property with wonderful views. Lucy (the Owner) met us at the house to check us in and show us around. She is a wonderful lady and very nice to chat with. The bedrooms are great, beds are very comfortable and very nicely appointed. The Kitchen has everything you would need. The house is located outside of Austin, but it is an easy Uber or Lyft ride into town.
A destination in itself
The property defies description and phots do not capture its charm. The perfect place for our multi-generational family gathering. Everyone was comfortable from ages 81 to 1. Everything you needed was at hand from fully supplied expansive kitchen with space for plenty of helpers to work without being on top of each other to the magical outdoor spaces Large dining table for family meals as well as spots for a handful to grab a quick snack. Spacious bedrooms - each with its own character. We cancelled some of our planned outings to stay and enjoy the magnificent view of the sunrise over the hills Twice we changed from eating dinner out to eat takeout on the deck to gaze at the sunset’’s spectacular display Perfect location to take in many of the array of things Austin has to offer. Every time you walk through the lovely gardens or wander through the house you see some new gem you didn’t see before. Owners were so accommodating, pleasant and friendly. Can’t say enough to recommend that you choose this one of a kind dream You wouldn’t believe it if I told you about the master bathroom YOU MUST EXPERIENCE IT
Great house in Austin, Texas
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.
