About the Property

Spring and Summer are here!! Nothing Beats a Weekend or a Week on the Water!

Spring and Summer are here!! Time to make vacation plans!

Come visit the puuurtiest spot in the ♥ of Texas!

We call our place Pelican Point on Lake LBJ, because pelicans and sea gulls from the coast and other wintering birds visit here in the winter. But there's lots of bird watching year round.

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 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 surrounding vineyards.

This architect-remodeled apartment is clean, well-lighted and up-scale― only 20 feet from the water, shaded by five beautiful oaks.

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

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

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 degrees water views.

The Master Bedroom has a queen bed and private bath (sleeps 2). Second Bedroom and Bath has a queen bed and a pair of extra-long bunk beds suitable for adults. This room can sleep 4.

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 we're told.

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

We love dogs. We're not set up for them at this time, but we soon will be, so please check with us.

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 has one apartment downstairs and one upstairs, and there's no access and no noise between floors. The floor between is solid concrete (road bridge girders!). The owner and/or a few friends may be upstairs (mostly only on weekends), but you're hardly aware of it because you're too busy trading stories about how awesome the lake is.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: 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)

Why the Owner Chose Kingsland, TX, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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?
