About Jackie O'Farrell

Shawn and Jackie O'Farrell live in Austin, Texas and have 3 children. We are both professionals in high tech. We are quite busy with our jobs and children which precludes us from going to our home in Horseshoe Bay as much as we would like which is why we rent it out.

Jackie O'Farrell purchased this house in 2006

Why Jackie O'Farrell chose Horseshoe Bay

We loved Lake LBJ because it is a constant level lake and enables you to have a home very near the lake because flooding will not happen. Additionally, we loved the Horseshoe Bay area because it is close to Austin and also home to many restaurants and amenities. Additionally, it is close to Marble Falls which also has great restaurants and bars with entertainment.

What makes this house unique

We have 175 ft of beautiful open water front. We can view both the sunrise and sunset over the water from our property. The water in front of our home is clear and around 7 feet deep and protected from boaters by our boathouse. It is very private as it is all on the water and a great place to ski, wakeboard, swim, play in the water. We even have stairs that go into the water so that older people and dogs can get in and out.

Fantastic Lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this lakehouse! In a fantastic area with amazing homes nearby. It has been completely remodeled recently and is well furnished. So much lakefront just steps from the back door. The house is really set up for a lot of people. There were 16 of us, and when we hung out on the back porch, there were plenty of chairs and tables, and lots of elbow room. It's hard to tell from the posted pictures, but there is a dining room table, not just a pool table in the dining room. Lots of barstools, too. There was no sleeper sofa/futon that we could find. There is a full size air matress available, but if you want to sleep the full 16, bring more air matresses or plan on 2 people on sofas.

Amazing Lake House!!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is truly amazing! From the moment we walked through the front door we were impressed with the gorgeous views of the lake. The layout of the house is perfect for big groups. All five bedrooms have their own bathrooms and there is even a

half bath downstairs. The downstairs master bedroom has an incredible bathroom with a very large shower! The four bedrooms upstairs each open up to a balcony with a view of the lake.

The two kayaks and two paddle boards provided with the house were such a treat! We all had so much fun on these exploring the lake. The steps and ladder made it easy to get in and out of the lake.

One of the highlights of the house is the underwater lights. The kids used a net and had a blast catching dozens of minnows that were attracted to the light. We then used the minnows to catch a lot of bigger fish. Super fun for all of us! Fishing tip: We were the most successful catching fish very early in the morning (5:00am!).

Great house! Only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at this property. The property had fantastic amenities and was large enough to accommodate all of my family. We were able to bring our boat and jet skis too. Beautiful lakefront property!

We stayed at this recently renovated 5 bedroom house. One master bedroom is located on the first floor which is convenient for handicapped or disabled people. The views from the first floor living area and kitchen are breathtaking! There is a dining table on the back porch which seats 10 people. The grill/refrigerator station is so convenient. Paddle boards and kayaks were at our disposal daily. The fishing off the dock and walk was great! The upstairs dock area is HUGE! Every bedroom upstairs has direct access to the walkway leading to the dock. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend this house!! Perfect multi-family getaway!!

Great LBJ Lake House

  • 4 of 5

Great view, lake, decks, water toys. What is not to like? Our family of 10, 3 generations, all had a great time. We hope to do it again. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the property is dated and needs some exterior maintenance.

Wonderful Place to stay with few downsides

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed for 5 days at this home. It was very comfortable. The listing was very accurate as far as amenities. There was plenty of space for all of us. We liked using the kayaks a lot. I am glad there was plenty of life jackets and paddles for everyone. Even though the wallpaper dates when the house was built, it's a great place to stay. The kitchen was very roomy and we made several meals there. I liked that the kitchen had labels that made it very easy to navigate. I liked that the whole family fit at the large dining table. (We were worried there was no indoor table since there were no pictures of it but there is actually one inside and outside). The only downsides that we noticed was there was a large amount of spiders on the chairs on the party deck. While watching TV out there, 2 spiders crawled on family members and we found spider webs on just about every chair. Also we found at least 3 lizards (about 8in long from nose to tip of tail) INSIDE the house. Besides the critters, the backyard and balcony needed a good sweeping. There was lots of leaves and acorns all over. The inside of the house was clean but it needed to be dusted. Other than that it was a very enjoyable stay. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. During our stay, it got cold enough for us to use the wood burning fire place! The best part about this place is the view!! Lots of windows facing the lake was a huge plus for us!
