FUN ON THE WATER:
The lake is very calm and peaceful in the 'off season' which is our favorite season!

There are also several boat rental companies in the area if you just want to rent for a couple of hours to tour the lake. We can provide rental information if needed.

Once (if) you come in from the water, there are still plenty of things to do inside. The downstairs game room is fun for all ages. Amenities include ping pong, snack station, large sectional sofa with views of the lake and satellite TV. Enjoy movies, crafts, board games, books, magazines, tourist info, stereo and wireless internet in this room. The tiled game room has sliding doors right onto the back lawn for indoor and outdoor fun all day long.
The adjoining bunk room is great for 'kids' of all ages with it's own living space, fireplace and TV for games or movie watching. A card table is ready for board games, crafts or puzzles. A small nursery with a full sized crib, exersaucer and sling chair are part of this large room. There are 6 twin beds and two full sized air mattresses for you.
Upstairs on the main entry level is a 3rd open living room, dining room and kitchen perfect for more 'adult' gatherings with panoramic views of the lake. Enjoy comfortable seating for 11, vaulted ceilings, towering stone fireplace and two sets of large glass doors which slide open to the balcony for a spectacular indoor-outdoor space to be enjoyed year round.
Pets are always welcome with a signed pet agreement. The backyard is fenced on three sides of the home with open access to the lake on the fourth. A small kennel, pet toys and treats are in the downstairs laundry room.

Nice LBJ Getaway
Nice LBJ Getaway
My wife, myself, and 3 other couples had a great weekend trip to Sunset Shores on LBJ. We took our boat and two jet skiis and the dock and jet ski lift were perfect for coming and going. The boat lift was occupied but we were able to tie off to the dock with no problem as it is protected in a small cove. However this is not the best location for swimming in the lake with the shallow muddy bottoms and the docks lining the cove. Also there is plenty of parking out front for trucks and trailers and the boat ramp is nearby.

Our stay at your rental home was above and beyond our expectations! Very rare to find what was actually described is what you find. Was amazed at the "little" extra amenities we never counted on. Location was great and accomodating!! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

From our guest book "Thanks Chereen for everything! Our group of 10 lifelong friends who have been traveling together for the last 21 years, really enjoyed your home. Such a pretty lake & home and we had a great time celebrating our last 20 years together. Thanks for calling me back about the toilet paper (HA!). Only suggestion is some mirrors in the downstairs area. Enjoy the rest of your Summer, The Boat Friends 2010"

Great Place for Big Families
Great Place for Big Families
We are the Thornton Clan from Corpus Christi, and we have traveled together for years to parts far and wide. Your house at Lake LBJ wins for most 'family-friendly abode.' We couldn't believe the set (i.e. toys, game room, and 'movie theater' in the lower half; kitchen and family gathering area in the upper half). The bedrooms were perfect, and the fact that the old family pet could join us was great! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. Sincerely, The Thorntons June 2010

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We purchased Sunset Shores in May of 2008 as a family vacation home. We live in Austin and San Antonio so the Highland Lakes area is just perfect for a short commute to feel a world away. We look forward to creating memories with our family, friends and vacationing guests.
Why the Owner Chose Lake LBJ:
We selected this vacation home because it just felt right from the moment we walked on the front porch. There are amazing views of the lake from so many spaces. The sunsets are truly spectacular, hence the name Sunset Shores Lakehouse. Granite Shoals, in particular, is well situated on the lake for easy access to either Horseshoe Bay amenities or skiing on the Colorado Arm. We love the 'small town' feel of Granite Shoals within 10 minutes to all the conveniences offered in Marble Falls.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This particular home provides so many options to spend time together yet offers secluded spaces to relax alone. There are multiple indoor and outdoor living spaces and 4 bedrooms. This particular waterfront is perfect for our family. We range in ages from 2-82 and there is something perfect for each of us. There is shallow swimming where our 2 year old can stand alone, deeper water a few feet away for our 8 year old, covered boat slip for my husband, great fishing from the dock for Grandma and so many other things. Our recent improvements to the backyard to include an outdoor kitchen right by the water's edge allow us to enjoy the lake all day long. With a large gas grill and double butcher block bars for guest, you never have to go inside until bed time. Can't beat that!
