A fabulous home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

LBJ- River Oaks Lake House surpassed all of our expectations and then some. We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday here with the entire family (14ppl). The home is amazing with plenty of space for all. There is something to do for everyone. We made many wonderful memories here. My husband said it was the best birthday idea ever. The owners of the home, Mr. and Mrs. Villers, were so attentive to our stay and made us feel right at home. I would definitely recommend this home. We will be coming back in the future.

River Oaks Retreat Review

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for us--really appreciated the large fully-equipped kitchen and indoor and outdoor TVs (World Series). Very close proximity to two golf courses was also nice. The group will likely want to rent it again next year. DG

The view from the back porch is stunning and the home is absolutey beautiful! The sleeping accommodations worked perfectly and we had everything we needed. Would most certainly give this property five stars and would be most happy to visit it again.

The Best Lakehouse ever!

  • 5 of 5

I do not know where to start with this review. I think I will start with the location. We have all heard it a million times, but location, location, location is so important in many things. And this is the best location on lake LBJ we could have asked for! It allowed us to spend most of our time floating right in front of the house and/or taking quick trips in the speed boat so that each of us got to do what we wanted to do. When you stay so far up the Colorado arm of lake LBJ, it takes way too long to get to where you want to be to wakeboard and ski or watch the Aquaboom, so this place was perfect!

Next I think I will talk about Debby and how absolutely wonderful she was in accommodating all our needs. She was there to greet us, and even help when our rental boat showed up before we arrived. She took the time to text me when i had questions about where to find things in the house. She even mailed us back some items we left! I mean, what manager/homeowner does that? None that I have ever rented from for sure. That was really hospitable and greatly appreciated!

I think the last but most certainly not least were the amazing accommodations. All beds were so comfortable and there was lots of space even in the bunk room! We wanted to keep the boys and girls separate just for ease of mind since we had a mixture of young adult kids and young tweens. So even if some of the beds were not slept in, the floors had room for a couple of blow up mattresses. The living room and kitchen all in a free flowing open space was perfect when we all tried to eat together. But I have to be honest, even over the 4th of July, the outside is where we spent most of our time. With ping pong, fooseball, firepit and comfortable seating on the covered porch which was right off the house and the one high over the dock , there was not a better place to be. Oh, and did I mention the awesome floating in front of the house? And the rope swing? The kids had tons to do the entire time. The TV was not turned on once over the 4 days!

Thank you for making our holiday memorable! We certainly will be coming back ASAP.
