  • Horseshoe Bay Condo Overlooking Lake LBJ

    "My family and I enjoyed the creature comforts of this condo better than nearby Horseshoe Bay Resort (actual hotel) and the adjacent HBR Paseo apartments where we've stayed before. The space was more than sufficient for four; the furniture and amenities nicer than the hotel; the view far superior than 1/3 mile away at the HBR hotel or apartments. We liked the cleanliness of the kitchen, bathrooms, guestrooms and living room. The two beds were comfortable, as were the pillows. No issues with housekeeping. Two concerns shared with the owner. One, the living room TV appears to be set up for Roku only, and we never were able to watch traditional, live cable TV on the main TV despite speaking to Northland Communications helpdesk. It took a while to figure out Roku, and we enjoyed some familiar shows that were recorded. The TV in the master bedroom was used more, and had live TV programming. There is no TV in the secondary room which we used for our teenagers. Second, I got to meet the Horseshoe Bay Fire Department chief by staying at this location. Not planned. Long story short, I called the owner to have the unit's thermostat fixed since the unit was too cold. First, an HVAC technician was dispatched to the unit and arrived early in the morning which posed an inconvenience to my family. After inspecting the unit, he said the thermostat and related equipment near the indoor hot water heater was not drawing enough electrical power. Later that same day, an electrician came to the unit, presenting more disruption as my family had to cut short a visit in Marble Falls with a friend so I could meet the electrician at the unit. He found a 120 volt wire loose, with cinged traces of that wire caused by arcing below, and told me it was a significant fire threat. Not comforting. When he pulled on the wire in question, the entire complex's fire alarm sounded; screeching alarms set off; lights blinked; occupants walked down the stairs as the elevator was disabled; and the Horseshoe Bay FD engine #11 was dispatched. The electrician and I talked to the FD and chief. The electrician fixed the faulty wire and declared the unit safe. The owner allowed us to stay beyond normal check-out time on Sunday, but insisted her unit was not the cause of the fire alarm. To this day, I disagree based on the report of the electrician. When I think of this unit, and complex, our family will forever remember the Horseshoe Bay FD and engine that visited us on Spring Break."

  • Back to school vacation

    "Our family wanted an end of summer/back to school vacation close to home. We got lucky and found this fabulous place. Very relaxing, easy access to groceries and such. Rented watercraft with ease as well. Will definitely go back!"

  • Gorgeous Property

    "The pictures don't do this house justice! It is a beautiful setting, very private, perfectly maintained and super clean. We spent a week here and had a great time. There is so much to do right on the property - our 3 teenage boys stayed busy swimming, fishing, kayaking, swinging in the hammocks, playing chess, trying out the steam room and playing the piano while we relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful view. The owners thought of everything and were very helpful and easy to work with. We highly recommend and hope to stay again very soon."

  • Love this house and sandbar! So pet friendly

    "This is the best house to relax with quiet surroundings. We loved the sandbar where we all could float and swim including our dog. The house was very clean and well maintained. Everything was in working order and no need to bring anything other than our food, clothes and bath items. The best part was when the storm came through one night, the owner texted me to check and make sure we were okay. She was very responsive and nice. I highly recommend this for families, pet owners, teens, couples, boaters, swimmers, those who like to kayak and canoe. We had several games of football, volleyball and relay races in the lush, green backyard. If you are from Texas, you know this is a treat to step barefoot on green grass with no "picky's" or red ants. World Cup soccer was on in the afternoon (nice TV) and the people we met who also use the sandbar where very nice. Great, current materials for travel and events in the area of Highlands Lakes in the house. Even had a Kuerig! Thank you for providing laundry soap and bleach since we forgot it.You will love this house!!"

The lake is connected to the Colorado and Llano rivers at Kingsland and visitors here may enjoy kayaking up the river for several miles. Close to Kingsland is an area known as "the slab," with a sandy beach for shelling, shallow water for padding, and a play and picnic area, making it is perfect for a family outing.

Here, visitors may be lucky enough to find a fossil of Ice Age mammals that once lived in the cavern or relics from its first human inhabitants, the Comanche Indians.

Be warned, the cavern is said to be haunted! So much so, that brave visitors may choose to accompany one of the ghost hunts held here.
