About Rick DuRapau
Ann & Rick DuRapau. Mid 60's, married 40+ years, two kids, 6 grand kids (best thing ever). Rick's an inventor type, and new product designer (i.e. he invented the original, black & yellow, plastic folding sawhorse). Inventors tend to see things different than most. The house reflects that. The amazing Ann stays busy, mostly just having fun.
Rick DuRapau purchased this House in 2003
Why Rick DuRapau chose Leander
We had a place just around the bend in the late 90's. We wanted something closer to the water that didn't face west. Rick went into his realtor friend's office, and pointed to a spot on the big map on the wall. "If I could have any place on the lake it would be right ...here." Realtor said "funny you should mention that, we just got the listing today". Beautiful cove, first property towards the lake, natural area across cove, great breezes, it's perfect.
What makes this House unique
It's a floating house, and that would be enough. But, the rope swing, the pool table, the shuffleboard table, the layout, the overhang for shade, etc, all make it even better.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!
Great place for a good time.
Both Ann and Ric were at the property to meet us upon our arrival. Southern hospitality could learn a few tips by taking notes from Ann and her welcome. The house was clean and ready for us even though we arrived a little early. They allowed us to launch our boat at the neighborhood park. Once settled into our rooms, it was non-stop activity for the 5 grandchildren with canoeing, kayaking, standup paddle boarding, playing pool and shuffle board and a bit of tubing behind our boat. The biggest hit by far was the rope swing! Even a few of the parents tried their skill at jumping from the platform, being propelled out into the deep lake water. We definitely will return...
Everything you expect from the listing and more
Beautiful setting, clean and quirky floating cabin, a perfect setting to relax AND have fun!
You won’t regret booking the Float House!
Where do I start? I’ve visited here in March and in August. Both were epic times and well worth it. The float house has a website that has more info and pictures plus some cool videos that vrbo doesn’t have on it. If you want to convince them how awesome this place is gooogle famous float house.
The owners think of everything. They have everything there you will need. Just bring food and your closest friends/family for a great time. No need to leave except to stock up on more food/alcohol.
Alphahol weekend Float House
Had a college reunion in the house and boy was it epic. The owners go out of their way to have EVERYTHING there that you could need. It is a great location out of the main lake traffic just a excellent family or adult FUN HOUSE. WE WILL RETURN!!!
This house literally has everything you need or want! What a wonderful family vacation for both adults/kids! On our 2nd day being there we were already trying to figure out when we could all come back!! The rope swing is a huge hit along with ALL day and ALL night swimming and fishing, paddle boarding etc! We will definitely be back!!
Since we are a house on the water, with so much to do, most people never leave. Indoor Shuffleboard, Pool Table, the Amazing Rope Swing, Underwater Fishing Light, Plus all the Usual Lake Activities
