Why Renee Wesley-Case chose Lake LBJ

This property had incredible views and waterfront and was next door to our property. It was a beautiful property but very run-down. We spent 9 months renovating, changing all mechanicals, most appliances, flooring, showers, fixtures, roof, windows etc. We are very satisfied with the results and decided to open the home for vacation rentals. It has been in the Lake LBJ pool of rental homes since 2013 with a property management company and has 5 star reviews that will not carry-over to VRBO.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful views (180 degree), convenient location, open water, large porch and large yard. Plenty of parking. Junction of the Llano and Colorado Rivers. Boating, fishing, watersports and hiking. Near beautiful Inks Lake State Park and Longhorn Caverns. Only 50 miles from Austin, TX and 88 miles from San Antonio!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Sunset Cottage. The house was extremely clean and well taken care of. We had everything we could ever need and much more , making our stay so relaxing and fun. Our daughter loved all of the indoor and outdoor games you provided. We hope to return next March with the grandparents. Thanks again for making our stay so pleasant!

Great location. Beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at the property (mid Jan to mid Mar) and we plan to return in 2018! The location is truly great, on the water with beautiful views and close to Legends Golf Course!. Also a plus for us is the fact it is close to shopping, restaurants easy to travel to other locations. The house is fully equipped and comfortable. You really don't need to bring anything but your clothes and personal items. The owners are friendly and easy to work with.

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our weekend! We didn't bring a boat, so our children fished off of the dock and they all caught a fish (they were happy about that). The yard was perfect size for the kids to run around and play football in the soft grass. We were able to sit at the dining room table and plays games while keeping an eye on the kids playing in the yard. The house was very accommodating and comfortable!

Perfect lake rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in various places on Lake LBJ for 35 years, but Sunset Cottage made this trip extra special. The cottage is exactly as described on the web site...easy access to the lake, gorgeous views, comfortable home with tasteful decor, and all the amenities you could ask for made for a delightful stay. In addition, the quiet neighborhood and the deck overlooking the lake were the perfect endings for our busy days. It rained one day, but with all the books, games, and DVD's, we had plenty to keep us entertained. I even took a nice long soak in the beautiful garden tub! Everything is in great shape, and very clean, organized, and well maintained. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into the comfort, convenience, and enjoyment of their guests. Of course we ate out at our favorite local places (Crazy Gals, Grand Central Cafe, Bluebonnet Cafe, etc.), but with all the nice dishes, well equipped kitchen, and a dishwasher, we enjoyed cooking a few meals at home. The owners were extremely accommodating and friendly, and even helped us launch our boat. We loved our stay and are already making plans for the next trip!

Owner's Response: What a lovely review from 4 lovely people. We enjoyed talking to them and even learning a little history of the area. They all seemed to really enjoy the lake and going out in the boat fishing almost everyday. We appreciate the nice comments and hope to see them again soon!

Owner's Response: We truly appreciate your kind comments. The family took advantage of everything the lake had to offer and its great to know that everyone had fun. My favorite part of the house is also the porch with the fabulous views of the lake! We hope to see you again next year!

Great Place on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for the delay in writing this review! My wife and I stayed for two months Jan 15 through Mar 15. This was our first time at Sunset Cottage, we rebooked for the same period for 2016 so I believe that should sum up our experience. We found everything as described in the narrative. The kitchen was great to cook and entertain family and friends. The grill outside was great with gas and charcoal, clean and worked well. The boat lift was a must have item and worked well as we pulled our fishing boat with us. We really like the location, easy to get to, on the water, and within minutes of Legends Golf Course. We hope to be able to continue returning to this amazing house and plan to extend our stay in the future.

Great stay at the lake!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time as we always do! The house was in good shape and well stocked with all that we needed. On the first night of our arrival we entered the house to find that the air conditioning was not working! After calling the owners they did get a repair company over to fix the issue! It was a Friday evening so it took quite a while for repairs to be completed. The house was cooling off by well after midnight on the first night! We Decided to go to eat dinner while we waited for the repairs to be completed! We we're happy that the owners fixed the repairs so fast! After that evening, the home worked great and we were able to have an good vacation. The owners did ask us each day if everything was ok and it was! We love staying at this home because of the great views and the wonderful breeze from off the lake. The new bunk bed in the guest room was perfect for our family! We even enjoyed watching the three ducks that are in the area! Thanks to them for there quick response!!

Owner's Response: This is the third time this family has stayed with us. We were so surprised that our three year old central AC unit had problems and because it was Friday night it took a few hours to get it fixed. The AC company owner had to come out because he could not locate any of his technicians on the first night of a weekend! The family was very patient and I had notified them by text while they were at dinner that I made a reservation at the local historic hotel just in case the worst happened and I could not get it fixed. Everything worked out and we did not have to resort to moving them for a night! I am so glad that they enjoyed the rest of their holiday as they have every year. We are committed to ensuring our guest have a memorable stay (in a good way)! I hope they return as they have for three years now!!!
