About Jeannine Engel

My Uncle and Aunt purchased propety on the lake back

in the 60's. It's where as a teenager we spent our summers swimming and learning to ski. My husband and I bought our house next door to my Uncle and Aunt and have kept up the same tradition...

bringing our children and friends to the lake to swim and learn to ski and wakeboard.

Great memories on this lake.

Jeannine Engel purchased this house in 1988

Why Jeannine Engel chose Burnet

This house is on a dead end street with it's own private boat ramp. The house has

lakefront water as well as cove water.

The Best

  • 5 of 5

I am a little late writing my review. My family rented in 2013 and as I am back looking for dates to attempt to rent again, I noticed I never gave any input. Jeanine was awesome. She was extremely helpful and available to answer any questions we had. The pictures do not do the property justice. Every time we turned a corner we were pleasantly surprised. Outdoor kitchen and hot tub were awesome....all the deck space rocked. Floaties and slide into the lake for my 9 year old daughter along with paddle boat and kayaks! House was equipped with everything! My teen boys loved jumping off of the deck! Located in fun friendly area! We had a much larger group and rented this big mansion last year because we had so many. At the end of the trip, all we could talk about was how we had so much more fun at the Cozy Lakefront Getaway!

great time

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from our stay there. We had a fabulous time there I highly recommend staying there. More than we expected. We literally stayed outside, other than sleeping. The outdoor area is wonderful so many different places to sit and enjoy the sunsets. They offer you so much to do with all the extra's. The little ones had more than enough fun all day and night. The outdoor kitchen and eating area was a plus. thank you for sharing your home with our family. We have decided that our stay was just too short lived we will be returning again next summer, but for a longer stay.:)

What a perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely lovely place! The pictures do not do it justice. Jeannine was so accommodating, even on short notice. The neighbors even stopped what they were doing to help us put the jet ski in the water. The area is wonderful. My mom caught a beautiful fish off the dock. We have stayed at VRBO properties before, and this is my favorite. It has everything you need, and lots that you just want. We had such a great time and I highly recommend this place. Thank you so much for the wonderful weekend with my mom.

Best Kept Secret

  • 5 of 5

We moved to Texas two years ago from the East Coast, and I have been missing all the ponds, lakes, sounds, and Atlantic Ocean that we were accustomed to. I have been searching for a charming, easy waterfront getaway since our arrival, and we have been to every local and non-local spot. Imagine my delight and surprise when we stumbled upon Lake LBJ and this amazing rental house! It is right on the water, and it has four decks - one on the back of the house with rocking chairs, one that the enormous outdoor kitchen sits on, one that the hot tub resides on, and one down in the shade with the boat lifts, life jackets, paddle boat and other toys. It is decorated like a Cape Cod cottage and the location is wonderful. The cottage was clean and well appointed, and the kitchen had everything we needed, including coffee filters and ketchup! The owner is friendly and very easy to work with, and we have already booked our return visit. I highly recommend this lake front cottage rental.

We rented this property for 4 days over Thanksgiving. When we arrived, we found that the property had not been cleaned as stated by the owner. There was hair in the bath tub, hair and toothpaste in the bathroom sink, cobwebs and dust webs throughout, and the outside furniture had not been cleaned. We spent the first evening cleaning up. The next morning I went to make coffee and found the coffee pot full of mold; obviously, it had not been cleaned in awhile. At that point we decided to leave the property. I called the owner and informed her that we had left. She said she would refund us for the unused nights. A week or so later I received my security deposit back in the mail, but no refund as promised. Although the property owner promised a refund, she stood behind her contract. Ironically, our cleaning fee was not refunded even though the property was cleaner after we left. I contacted the owner via E-mail and regular mail and received no response. We have rented through VRBO many times and this was our first negative experience.

Beautiful Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutetly wonderful! My husband, our two teenage boys and I had an incredible time! The owners are so wonderful and helpful if you have any questions. We had a fabulous time and I would recommend this place to any family looking to get away and just enjoy the water. We loved everything about the house but I have to admit we spent most of our time enjoying the beautiful deck and great outdoor kitchen. If you are looking do a place to stay I recommend you pick this one!

Owner's Response: It's always so good to hear when someone else enjoys our little spot on the lake. It's a place for making great memories. For families to bring their children too as we did with ours. Thanks!!! Hope to see you again next summer.
