About Heidi Downing

My husband and I live in Santa Barbara California. Our twenty something children both moved to Austin after graduating from college. Wanting to be close, but not too close we bought a lake house at LBJ, 1 hour from Austin.

We bought at LBJ because it is constant level and has all the attributes we enjoy. Those include: the peace of being right on the water, great views, wildlife watching, water sports, and good old Texas living.

Heidi Downing purchased this house in 2013

Great water-front house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Rio! The property was in good shape with a fully fenced yard for dogs. There is a nice long driveway with plenty of parking space. The house was well stocked with essentials. The yard was very well kept. The 2 story boat dock was the best part. It had plenty of lounge space as well as a boat lift to make storing your boat and getting on and off the water a breeze. I highly recommend staying here!

Laid Back Lake Living

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weeklong stay at Casa Rio. Heidi is a very responsive and flexible owner. She sent a very thorough information pack about the house as well as info about the Highland Lakes area. This very clean house utilizes space very well, it definitely seems larger then 1000 sq feet. It is very well supplied and has many supplies I would not even expect to be available at a short term rental. The outdoor area is the jewel of this property. The fence around the property secured our two 15 pound dogs very well. The dogs loved running and playing around the yard . The top of the double decker deck was amazing. Lots of comfortable furniture with a good sized cover. My favorite part of the day was watching the sun rise with a cup of coffee up on the top of the deck. The dock was in very good shape. Unfortunately we did not have a boat to try out the lift though it looks like it is in good working condition. It was a great getaway for us and our canine kids. I am already thinking about our next stay at Casa Rio.

Always Great

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the property or the location. Heidi is always a jewel to work with and so accomodating.

Wonderful, clean property, nothing fancy, but with all the things you need.

We alternate a few meals out w/ a few made here. There are both inside and outside cooking areas. The view is awesome and water is clear and clean. We love to fish off the dock which is covered and spacious. Whether on the patio or on the 2nd level of the dock, you can just sit, relax and stare at the view. So relaxing.

Don't want to tell anyone, want to keep this for ourselves!

Another Great Stay At Casa Rio

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been taking mini vacations at Casa Rio for 5 or 6 years now and have never been disappointed with the house, how it is furnished, the yard, porch, nor that great big beautiful river to the rear of the property. The owners continue to make improvements to the property. Each time we book it, new stuff has been added. This time a new very large flat screen TV is in the living room and the regular size flat screen has been relocated to one of the two bed rooms. Also, a new air conditioning unit for the whole house replaced the old one plus new screen doors are on both front and rear doors.

I especially like the way the property is fenced. The front yard is totally fenced and continues to the back yard. It goes half way down to the river, making it safe for both children and doggies. The two story boat dock and deck is loaded up with lounges, chairs, tables, sofa and a bar-b-q grill. It was a great place to spend the day relaxing, cooking out, having a cool one and watching the boats and jet skis go by. Life is good.

You'll find a grocery store about 2 miles from Casa Rio and several fast food places within a 4 to 5 mile radius. Not too many full size restaurants in Kingsland but Marble Falls is only 15 miles away.

Whether you book during off season or in the summer, the rates are the best around. We look forward to booking our next stay at Casa Rio. Jay and Josie
