Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Theo,

The house was just PERFECT! Having rented condos (at the beach) in the

past and being required to bring so much stuff of our own, I was so

pleasantly surprised to see how much you all do to accommodate with

extras! Thank goodness for that hair dryer!

There was ample parking space, we utilized your games, plenty of

chairs on the deck, loved the radio and we even used the fire pit. The

house was so clean and nicely decorated, yet felt homey and

comfortable for our weekend away. We needed a relaxing place with

beautiful surroundings and that's just what we got!

I am already trying to find a date to take my family back over the summer!

Thanks again....everything was just perfect!

Very peaceful.

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend here. There were three couples and we fit in the house very well. Nice yard and deck to enjoy sunsets and swimming. Will definitely be back!

I really don't want to give a good review so that others won't be renting it the next time we want it, ha ha, but I feel like I owe it to the gracious owners to say that it was fantastic in every way! I wouldn't change a thing (except that I wish that I owned it myself). I'm so grateful that they shared their paradise with my family.

The location was wonderful. Lake LBJ and this house are the best.

Great place to stay for family. The play area off the dock was great for all ages. We thoroughly enjoyed the cove.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a weekend stay with friends and had a great time. The home was lovely and the views are beautiful. We enjoyed grilling by the water, watching the sunset from the deck and taking the kayaks out.

Perfect setting for a great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is really well appointed with all the cooking & eating accessories. Really much nicer inside than the pictures offered. While it may lack in immediate curb appeal from the street, once you get inside and see the room offered and the fabulous dock and upper deck, your vacation immediately begins and troubles disappear. The Oklahoma Joe grill/smoker is really nice but plan on bringing charcoal for use on the charcoal side as the propane tank was empty, no fault of the owner. We will be back.

Very Nice Property, Wonderfully stocked

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for four nights at this property, with our three kids and dog. It works great if you want to be able to let the kids have their own space, as the Casita has tons of beds and its own bathroom. Being able to dock the boat at the property during our stay was a tremendous advantage. It's a well-kept property, with everything you might need stocked in the kitchen.
