"I am writing a review as Kaitlin emailed me and so kindly asked if I could.
First off their are only 3 real condo options in HSB..places that are WAY up on the hill overlooking the water but too far from the water for the price, dumps in Cottonwood or HIGH priced condos in the resort by the water. This condo is on the water but an exception to this rule! this place is the LOWEST priced 1 bedroom condo in the resort area. It's even lower than the hotels in marble falls and it's on the water, I repeat ON THE WATER! I should know. I'm a cheap bastard so I contacted every place similarly priced. Clean, well kept, spacious for a 1 bedroom and perfect location. Owner is honest and easy to deal with. You read her rates right. She's not a dim lady but an honest one. She realizes her rates are low but wants others "to enjoy her condo at a reasonable rate" can you believe that !?!?!?
My 2 sons and I have been coming to HSB for almost 5 years now. Like others stated, the resort is lovely but outrageously expensive. I rented 2 other condos I found on vrbo before this one. The first stay started off rough as the pictures were a crock! The condo was way up on the hill overlooking HSB. My bad, I should have asked more prying questions like " Are your photos deceptive?" "Are these photos of your condo 10 years old", "Are your reviews obvious fakes?" but I digress. The second stay was in the building across from this one. Stay went well, I paid an arm and a leg but was happy with my overpriced stay. Until a week later the owner informs me he's keeping my deposit for some trumped up damages. That's another, unsettling story (ask lots of questions and read ALL the listing's reviews. I could have saved myself a ton of $ and headache) Ok, so I decide to try HSB one more time and I find this place. I asked a million questions and the ever patient owner answered everyone promptly. Booked it and I've never looked back. We've stayed here 5 times total. I haven't reviewed sooner out of selfish reasons, I don't want others finding out about this place. But, said owner kindly asked I review and after all these years coming to her place I felt she deserved a review. This place is the bomb, she's a boss and you won't regret renting here. Now just don't book on my weeks! Cheers! Tommy"
