House is FANTASTIC, with breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

This house is fantastic, would highly recommend and would stay again in a heartbeat but lacking 5 stars due to the property management as there was nothing done by them to provide great customer service. Stayed over 4th of July with 15 adults where sleeping accommodations were stellar, clean, roomy bathrooms plenty of space to cook, mingle and relax and this was just on the inside. Outside was a crystal clear refreshing pool, beautiful lawn, amazing view, wonderful dock with easy lake access for paddle boarding, kayaking as well as water trampoline. From the dock we watched the most amazing fireworks display and enjoyed watching the boats come from near and far to watch from the water. An amazing week for family from Alabama, Nebraska and Texas. THANK YOU! Cheers.

Owner's Response: Front Desk Vacation Rentals is pleased to hear we provided clean accommodations and a crystal clear swimming pool during your vacation after your families destination wedding. We personally oversee and maintain all of our Lake LBJ vacation rentals and we appreciate the kind review. I would like to apologize once again about the less expensive displayed rate at the top of all VRBO listings. The rate is always lower if you begin searching without entering a date rage, VRBO prompts guest to enter dates for accurate pricing. Your next click was contact manager, a pop up screen prompts guest to enter dates, how many guests, pets, name, phone number, email address and your message to manager, "hello, we would love to rent this property but see other homes similar to this are going for $1112 per night. Are prices negotiable? thanks". During a follow up phone conversation I mentioned, "July 4th is our most popular date range, especially at Christopher I, due to the AMAZING view of the Aqua Boom fireworks and no discounts are available." I realize our tone during the phone call was not the best. Searching for the perfect vacation home can be tedious, stressful and frustrating due to the low average nightly rate issue. I tried my best providing excellent customer service while solving your VRBO quote issue, answering your pet policy questions and offering a gratuitous gesture by waiving the $100 pet fee for your furry family member, Whiskey. We also appreciate you leaving the home in good condition. Best, Jon Nickowski Front Desk Vacation Rentals

Family Reunion June 2017

  • 5 of 5

The very best place for our family reunion!! We stayed here Thanksgiving 2016 and wanted to come back when we could enjoy the beautiful pool, the trampoline, and the lake! It did not disappoint! We had 15, sleeps 18, so all were comfortable.

This is a beautiful home with the covered patio, where we enjoyed coffee watching the sunrise each morning, and special beverages in the evening watching the kids swim and fish. Across the river are serene pastures, where the deer play. We rented a pontoon boat, suggested by Jon, the owner, and enjoyed traveling around looking at all the lovely homes on the water. The kids enjoyed tubing too.

We cooked on the grill more than once and loved that the HEB is 5 minutes away.

If you are looking for a great home on the water where 15 family members can share 4 nights, with plenty of room in a fantastic home....this is your place!

Great Easter Weekend

Great Time Was Had by ALL!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 8 guys spent 3 days at this wonderful home and played golf at 3 different courses which were all close by. The sleeping accommodations for our group were excellent. The common areas were spectacular; from the full kitchen with high-end appliances to the big screen t.v.'s to the comfortable leather couches. Views from the outdoor living area, deck and pool were remarkable too. Recommend this to any large family or multiple family gathering as it is nearly new and very comfortable.

Golf Outing

  • 5 of 5

This house is idea for multiple families or a large group of friends. The kitchen and dining areas are spacious and the layout, in general, provides space for everyone. The setting and available facilities at the house, from the pool to the water toys and boat dock, offers something for everyone. Lots of things to do in the area and the beauty of the Texas Hill Country only adds to the experience.

Three day stay at Christopher 1 with 7 other golf friends

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house that was spacious and very clean. Would like a chance to stay during the summer. The house is set up for several families to have a great stay. Great view from back porch. Only thing I would like to add, would be a little more sand for the front parking. A little mud gets on your shoes and can be wore into the house. Other than that, all other items were covered by the other friends staying at the house.
