Overview

About the property

Snowbirds! Autumn, Winter, and Spring are the most beautiful seasons here!!

Take advantage of "off season" rates. 15%-25% lower than Summer Rates!! Book Now!

Come visit the puuurtiest spot in the ♥ of Texas!

Three successful Ph.D theses have been written here. Perfect for academic sabbaticals.

Countless fish have been caught right off the dock. It's a regular spot for anglers. Perfect for the fisherman.

We call our place Pelican Point on Lake LBJ because pelicans and sea gulls from the coast and other wintering birds roost here. Perfect for the bird watcher.

Here's the best place to come in winter months for the Vanishing Texas River Cruise by Canyon of the Eagles, the premier ecological cruise boat of Texas. It's only 25 miles away. Departing from Lake Buchanan in the Central Texas Hill Country, the cruises provide spectacular views of Lake Buchanan, the Colorado River, native Texas wildlife, waterfalls, world-class bird watching and wintering Bald Eagles (even the occasional Golden Eagles!).

Did you know, our very own Lake LBJ, one of the Highland Lakes of the Texas Colorado River, is the largest constant-level lake in the US?

Kingsland is at the confluence of the Llano and the Colorado Rivers. Pelican Point is on the Colorado arm― the prettiest part of the lake.

Kingsland is the Heart of the Hill Country:

60 miles west of Austin; 10 miles from Longhorn Caverns, Lake Buchanan, Lake Marble Falls, and Inks Lake; 25 miles from Johnson City; 38 miles from Enchanted Rock; 53 miles from historic Fredericksburg. Close to a dozen vineyards.

This architect-designed apartment is clean, well-lighted and up-scale―only 20 feet from the water, shaded by five beautiful oaks. The one closest to the lake is an offspring of Austin's renown Treaty Oak. Summer may be where the action is, but fall, winter, and spring have to be experienced to be believed! The lake is all yours. It's quiet and comfortable― like a best friend.

Located on a peninsula on a very nice stretch of water in a very nice neighborhood, it's convenient to Kingsland for groceries, restaurants, shopping, etc. It's on a Big Bend of the Colorado River, offering sweeping 180-degree water views.

Pelican Point is that special place where family memories are made and dearly held.

2 bedrooms and 2 baths, a chef's kitchen/bar, large open living/dining area with lots of windows, and a waterfront porch with a gas grill and ceiling fans. High-speed (for Kingsland!) 24 mbps WiFi and 55" TV.

Master Bedroom has a queen bed and private bath (sleeps 2). Second Bedroom and Bath has a queen bed and bunk beds (this room can sleep 4).

A kayak is available. There's also an 7'-8" wide fishing boat slip with lift. There's another slip with lift for 2 jet skis if you want to bring them or rent them locally.

We love dogs! We're not completely set up for them yet, but we soon will be, so please check with us.

Please note that the quoted rates are based on two-person occupancy. Pelican Point is such a great place for a romantic get-away for couples that we want it to be affordable for those special anniversaries and birthdays where three's a crowd. The surcharges for additional guests are modest. This way you're only being charged for the number in your party― not paying unnecessarily for maximum occupancy every time. It's fairer, more flexible, and still a great value.

Here's a good question! So, you're happily vacationing on the first floor. Who's on the 2nd floor, how noisy are they, and what's the access between floors?

The house is an upstairs/downstairs duplex and there is no access and no noise between floors. The owner and/or a few friends may be upstairs (mostly only on weekends), but you're hardly aware of it, anyway, because you're too busy trading stories about how awesome the lake is.

About Steve Kubenka

I'm a practicing architect (mainly residential) in Austin since 1981.

Stephen Kubenka Architects

2002-D Sharon Lane

Austin, TX 78703

512-477-7666 (o)

Steve Kubenka purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Steve Kubenka chose Lake LBJ

We've been coming to Lake LBJ since the mid-1980s when my father-in-law started renting summer homes here and then bought one in 1989.

We love this beautiful constant-level lake so much I just had to have a home here, too!

What makes this apartment unique

In the early days of our visits to Lake LBJ, we stayed in homes near Horseshoe Bay on the southern end of the lake. That part of the lake is great for sailing but is usually too choppy for skiing. So we'd always boat up several miles to Kingsland and ski the calmer Colorado River arm of the lake. The Colorado arm is the prettiest most verdant part of the lake. Why spend hours and gallons of gas getting up there every time you wanted to ski? Why not just live there, right?

Beautiful stay on LBJ

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Pelican Point and we hope to return next summer. It is located at a great spot on the lake. We (and our dogs) loved the large grass yard and swimming area. The house has everything we felt like we needed for a relaxing weekend away. Steve is a wonderful owner who was so kind to us as we kept tabs on our home in Houston during hurricane Harvey.

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

This was everything we needed and wanted in a lake home get away. Peaceful, great location, comfortable and modern living space. It was well stocked with games, books, magazines, kitchen and bathroom necessities. Owner communicated well with arrival and departure information.

Sitting on the patio in the morning, drinking coffee, listening to the waves is a wonderful way to re-group. We also rented a pontoon from Splash boat rentals right around the corner that was a great price, and great customer service. And the neighborhood dogs that greet you are sweet as can be, not scary at all, and our pup made friends with them right away. Would definitely stay here again!

Property beautifully decorated.

  • 3 of 5

Neighbors had 2 dogs that were not dog friendly. Since we advised owner in advance we were bringing our therapy dog with us, we were surprised by the neighbor dogs first morning of our stay. They literally came after our dog and wife. She started screaming for them to "stay" and they finally left. Owner never even acknowledged the incident even though we know he was told. Property could use a thorough cleaning. Cross beam rafters in kitchen had some kind of bugs on it, cob webs, etc.

Never received check in info. Our info through VRBO showed check in of 2:00, but should have been 4:00. We showed up at 2 & owner gracious to let us in since it was 95+ outside. Kitchen countertops seemed to still have dried food on them, refrigerator shelving not that clean, refrigerator door handles were dirty. Location good.
