About the property

Casa Rio is a charming 2 bedroom, 1 bath lakefront home that sleeps 6.

Casa Rio is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home that has recently been updated. It is situated right on Lake LBJ directly across from untouched land with spectacular views of the open lake and an abundance of wildlife. The lake depth off the double decker dock is 20' - 30'. We offer the best of; water skiing, tubing, wake boarding, fishing and just good old fashioned lake fun. We are in the Highlands Lakes region close to; Horseshoe Bay, Marble Falls, Inks Late State Park and much more.

We have a double deck dock with spectacular lake access and views. The upper dock is equipped with a propane bbq and a stand up ice chest. We have a roof covering the dining area with seating for 6. There are also 4 lounges for sunbathing.

The lower dock has a 20' slip with an overhead hoist and V cradle for boat docking. It also has a ladder for swimming and fishing rod mounts.

Next to the dock is a boat house equipped with all the toys for lake fun including; tubes, floating oasis, fishing poles, corn hole, and of course ample life jackets.

Casa Rio is near grocery shopping, Legends Golf Course, a public marina and Longhorn Caverns State Park.

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

2nd Time Around

  • 5 of 5

Heidi is great/easy to work with, very giving and very fair. House is on smaller side, but property and amenities totally make up for that. Kingsland (what pop. 1200?) has a couple good restaurants, esp. Grand Central Cafe (pricey dinner), but a great value menu/big portions, great quality for lunch. We love to fish and caught a lot, but be advised, almost all will be (smaller) brim/bluegill. We did catch a few Bullheads (small catfish) and a nice Smallmouth Bass that was a beauty. Bait shop and HEB nearby. 3-4 little towns to roam to, all about 10 miles away. Great time and great views everywhere around here. Wonderful, relaxing drive. Love the Texas Hill Country. There's a part of us that...well, we really don't want to tell you about this place, but keep it ours. Tim and Gail San Antonio, Texas

Nice Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Rio. The house was perfect for a short getaway with my husband and we loved having the flexibility to bring our pet. It had everything we needed for our stay, was quiet and the boat dock is amazing. With the grill and the fire pit on top, that is where we spent the majority of our days. Great proximity to necessities. Thanks Heidi for sharing your home!

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to rent this home. We absolutely love it. Everything we could possibly need was there ... the beds are very comfortable. We took full advantage of the deck overlooking the water. The best part is that it is pet friendly and my dogs loved this place! Will definitely be going back!!

Second time still as charming!

  • 5 of 5

While the weather didn't fully cooperate (heavy rains in Central Texas in August??!!), our stay was once again very enjoyable. New refrigerator and new ladder on the dock were nice updates from the previous year. A beautiful view and cooler temperatures made for great kayaking! Even sitting on the back porch watching the rains come down was a relaxing change of pace! Thanks, Casa Rio, for once again providing us a memorable vacation!
