Why Renee Wesley-Case chose Kingsland

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!

I've taken my kids & grandkids to this beautiful spot for two years now & could not ask for more. Everything you could want is provided plus some you wouldn't expect. Delightful owners are right next door in case there's anything you need. From us, 5 stars for sure.

Very clean comfortable family home.

  • 5 of 5

Our grandchildren loved the big shaded yard. We were able to dock our boat on site with their manual lift. An Awesome convenience! Owners live right next door, very friendly but totally respectful of our privacy! Little extras such as being well stocked on toilet paper, hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, including charcoal, propane and firewood! (Something we have not found at other rentals). Enjoying morning coffee on deck ( equipped with ceiling fans) is a must! Lots of outdoor toys for kids. We will return as the lake itself is a great vacation spot.

Our entire family (11 people) spent the week at this amazing cottage. We were one over the limit, but the owners approved it! There is everything you could possibly need in this well stocked house! The kids were very happy to sleep in the double bunk bed room complete with Television. Every bedroom has a TV! The master bath is well equipped with a soaking tub, separate shower and double vanities!

We loved the wrap around porch with a beautiful view of the lake! The yard is lush and green. They have a volley ball net stretched out and they also wheeled out the Ping Pong Table! The kids had lots of fun.

If you have a boat or jet skis, the boat dock is right there! So convenient.

We will go back for another vacation or possibly a girl's weekend. The owners are very accommodating. Highly recommend this vacation spot!
