                            The Peacock House was all and more than we expected! If you are looking for a place to just relax...this is it. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. I loved waking up and seeing the the view of the lake right from the bed in the master bedroom. The photos do not do this place justice. My husband and I took our teenage daughter and her friend, of course it was too much house for what we needed, but will certainly return even if it was just the two of us!! We enjoyed playing games and the Foosball Table was a hit with all of us. Didn't see any peacocks but the abundance of deer we saw on our evening walks made up for it. The girls enjoyed the use of the Kayaks and the dock came in handy when we rented a boat. Our trip was a last minute decision and Linda was so accommodating and made the transaction a breeze! She knew we would be arriving late our first night, so she made sure she left the lights on for us!! She put Tom Bodett to shame! LOL Overall....this place is a hit all the way around..great beds, linens were quality, spacious and clean. Would highly recommend!!

                            Owner response: Wow! Thank you so much. It is gratifying to know how our efforts are appreciated.

Good supply of linens, towels and paper goods. Great decks. Overall a great experience. Only disappointment was that the boat was not available. Would recommend to friends.

                            We had a great time while staying here. My husband and I went with our two teens (16 and 19) and their 2 friends. Plenty of room for everyone and a great kitchen, even had a pitcher and a whisk! Everything was as described. The foosball table was a huge hit with the boys. And even though a foosball man's foot broke while we were there, I emailed Linda, and Mark was out in an hour to repair so the games could continue! The master bedroom is great, very comfortable bed. If you like a dark room, however, I would advise you to pack a sleep mask as the room gets very bright when the sun comes up. Lots of deer in this neighborhood, so drive carefully, especially at dusk. We had deer run across the road right in front of us on two occasions. We rented a boat from Splash rentals and had a great time, very smooth transaction. They had a little trouble finding the house from the water's edge so verify they know where they are bringing the boat! The kayaks were a hit with the teens too, a great extra. We had dinner one night in town at Francesco's. Great pizza, it is BYOB. Overall it is a great house, and I would definitely recommend it!

                            If you have a large get-together planned, this is the place for you! It was just my husband and I staying there for a week, as we chose the home for the use of the boat. Unfortunately, the boat was not working. We were able to rent a pontoon from Splash Rentals at a very reasonable price and kept the boat at Linda and Mark's dock. This home is decorated very tastefully with fine furniture and all kinds of extras that you may need. I am all about how the water pressure is and the bed sleeps, when we stay anywhere. The master bath shower head was AWESOME!! Water was hot and pressure excellent! The sheets and towels were high quality and not "itchy". So soft and high thread count. The mattress in the MB was so sleep like a baby! The residence was as nice or nicer, than some Hiltons and Marriotts, we have stayed in. Linda and Mark are very accommodating and eager to assist. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. Lots of things to do. Excellent flat screen TV's, games, and we were so grateful to be able to take our dogs. You have to pick this for your next vacation at Granite Shoals!

                            The listing description and photos were very helpful in my decision to choose the Peacock House for our family Christmas gathering this year. The owner was very cordial and helpful in answering my questions and concerns. The house and grounds were well kept. We had a wonderful weekend, and enjoyed the outdoor spaces as the weather was great. Would recommend this property to a friend or relative. We really didn't take advantage of any of the nearby activities or attractions.

                            We stayed at the Peacock house 5 nights during Thanksgiving week and totally enjoyed it! The house was larger than expected and the pictures of the kitchen online do not do the size of the room justice. It was a large room with lots of counter space! There was plenty of sitting for meals and games. Beds were plentiful and comfy and the owners made sure we had everything we needed for our Thanksgiving meal. I love how well stocked the kitchen was! My kids really enjoyed the foosball table and all the game options. I really enjoyed how relaxing and roomy the house was. I wish the weather would have been cooler so that we could have enjoyed the large wood burning fire place. The peacocks came everyday (I think I counted 7) and several times, deer would also visit us. Having the option to rent the boat was a huge plus and the use of the free kayaks was really cool. I was also very grateful that the owners allowed us to bring our two dogs. The dogs were most curious about the peacocks. My family and I had a wonderful time there and hope to return over the summer.

                            We recently rented the Peacock House to celebrate a 50th and 60th birthday. Over the course of 10 days we had 15 women coming and going and the house was perfect for our large group. Linda and Mark were available for any questions or problems and handled everything promptly. The house had everything we needed and I would recommend this property for large groups.

                            Our family of six adults and 2 grandkids spent 5 days at the Peacock Lake House. We get together every summer and voted that this years trip was the best we have had. The online posting of the rental was exactly as described in the listing and was actually much larger than we anticipated.The property was clean and beds were extremely comfortable. The owner was very truthful in saying all you need to bring is your food and clothes, everything we needed was supplied. The owners were very responsive and easy to rent from. The location of the house is perfect! 10 minutes to HEB and the "Dock" restaurant (very good seafood). Peacocks appeared every morning as described in the owners listing. Boat launch was easy to use and close to house. Owners covered boat slip was great, only suggestion would be to dredge the cove to remove algae.Our grandkids are still talking about the fossball table and Wii games. We had such a good time that we plan to rent the house again in the summer of 2013.

                            Our family had a very good 4 day stay at the Peacock House. The owners keep the inside of the house very clean and stocked with things for groups to do. We enjoyed boardgames, the Wii, hot tub, Fooseball table, and large selection of magazines for being lazy around the house. We also fished off the boat dock and lounged in the shade on the well kept lawn. There is a lakeside park right with a swimming area around the corner that is good for young kids. During the middle of the week (when we were there), the neighborhood was quiet, and the lake was not crowded. We grilled steaks one night, and the grill was in excellent shape with an extra propane tank located nearby. The owners pay very good attention to the small details. This is a great house for a relaxing few days on the lake.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We live an hour away between Jonestown and Cedar Park across from Lake Travis. I lived in the area as a child, but my spouse is a transplant from the beautiful Lake Michigan area. I guess you'd call us lake people. We have seven grandchildren, but only two are local. The others are in Raleigh, NC. We also have a pair of small Shih Tzu dogs that love the lake area as much as we do.

                          Why the Owner Chose Granite Shoals:
                          We previously had a smaller rental on Lake Travis, but sold it because water levels had fluctuated so much. Lake LBJ is referred to a constant-level lake, so boating is never hampered by low water. The area is a quiet, congenial, slow-paced kind of place where folks wave as they drive by even if they don't know you.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          There is a lot of wildlife wandering around - prized plants are a favorite of the local deer population. We had a very small fawn take up residence in the shady plants of our tree round in front of the house. We named this place for the two peacocks who liked to wander our property. Unfortunately, all peacocks had to be removed. Butterflies, song birds, and millions of stars on quiet nights all add up to a wonderful place to rest and relax.
