About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12 (12 adults)

Host your next big family reunion or holiday gathering at this sprawling riverside home featuring a covered balcony, large grassy yard, new boathouse and dock with boat lift, two jet ski ramps, protected swimming area, and even an elevator for guests with limited mobility.

This three-bedroom vacation rental is located right on the Colorado River, nine miles south of Buchanan Lake, and only 70 miles northwest of downtown Austin for shopping, dining, museums, and more.

Airy and bright, this custom-designed home has wide open living spaces throughout with high ceilings, hardwood floors, and walls of windows offering unobstructed views of the river and the surrounding tree-lined neighborhood.

The open floorplan offers two distinct seating areas including one with a massive, 70-inch flatscreen, cable TV and the other is ideal for reading books or chatting over coffee.

An adjacent dining area has a large table with seating for up to eight guests where you can play board games, plan out your days, or indulge in delicious, home-cooked meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.

In the center of the kitchen, there's a granite-topped island with five comfortable counter stools as well as a four-burner cooktop. This kitchen also comes with several cabinets and drawers stocked with essential cookware and dinnerware, plus a variety of appliances including a French door refrigerator, blender, ice maker, wall oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, and dishwasher. And if you want to have a family cookout, just fire up the three-burner gas grill located outside!

There are three cozy bedrooms in this home all of which are located on the same floor and offer plush king-size beds. The bunk room also has two twin bunks, a twin roll-out trundle, and there's an additional twin roll-away bed stored in the master bedroom closet. There is also a Pac-n-Play available for a little one. With three bedrooms and two full baths, this home sleeps up to 12 guests very comfortably. The family dogs are also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.

Get online and share updates about your trip with friends and family back home thanks to the free WiFi and keep up with your favorite shows and movies on the two flatscreen TVs. With the inclusion of a washer/dryer, you can leave those bulky suitcases home and start each day with fresh, clean clothes.

This unique rental offers a number of enviable options for home entertainment including a lower-level space with a foosball, ping-pong, and pool table for the kids. There's also a heated 10' x 14' still pool with wraparound sliding doors and windows. Or you can just relax outside with a mint julep on the covered, main floor balcony and enjoy the incredible view of the yard and the winding Colorado River.

The grassy yard, shaded by enormous pecan trees in the afternoon, is great for the kids and you can also splash in the river in a protected swimming area alongside the new dock and boathouse complete with boat lift. You can even spend a lazy afternoon fishing for bass or catfish right in your own backyard. The boathouse comes equipped with a stand-up paddle board, a large water mat, life vests for children and adults, a puddle jumper, and plenty of sliding and folding chairs.

Head up to Buchanan Lake, just nine miles away, for kayaking, lakeside picnics, boat tours, and fantastic hiking trails. Or spend your days over in Austin where there's always fun to be had. Whether you're visiting to check out the world-famous music scene, to take part in a number of festivals and other city-wide events including South by Southwest, the Austin Film Festival, and Fun Fun Fun Fest, there's always something exciting happening in Austin, just 70 miles from your front door.

About Vacasa, TX - Texas Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife���s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Wonderful Home for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast and loved this home. Very spacious and comfortable and had plenty of activities for everyone to participate in. Very convenient to store. Sitting on the dock was relaxing and fun watching all the boats go by. I highly recommend this rental!

Great house for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Overall: This was a wonderful property for our group of 4 adults and 3 older teen/20-somethings. We would definitely stay here again.

PROS: Clean home; beds; enough towels; drawers and cabinets in the kitchen were labeled; house is very large with plenty of space for everyone; massive closets & lots of storage. Excellent for a long term rental. The dock area was great and we enjoyed the splash pad and extra chairs down there. Youngsters only used pool once but reported that the jets and heater worked fine.

CONS: If you have a skillet(s) that you love at home and they make or break your recipe, better bring your own. The 2 skillets in the kitchen were small and need to be replaced. (I find this is the case with every VRBO/HomeAway rental we stay at).

The biggest issue we had was getting into the house. There are 2 lock boxes hanging on the porch. The first one I tried was not the right one, and I wasn't told there is more than one and it took me over 5 minutes to keep looking and find the right one. Check in directions should be more specific about where to find the lock box, or state that there's two. This home also didn't have any directions about how to work the electronics or point us to all the A/C controls. We finally found 5 (I think) throughout the home. They were all set on 80 degrees; very warm upon our arrival and unpacking. Never got the cable to work on living room TV. Not a huge deal to us, but wanted to note it. I would recommend that the owners/manager provide more specific instructions for check in/ getting the house up and running. Several minutes spent trying keys and going up and down stairs to figure out how to get into the garage. The elevator was tricky to initially figure out. The elevator is the only way to get from the top floor into the garage from within the house. We kept looking for an interior staircase because some in our party are averse to elevators...Knowing all this ahead of time would have been very helpful.

The listing says that there are just 2 bathrooms, but in fact there is also a full bath down by the pool. The listing says there is a pool table, but it is a miniature child-sized one. We never found a ball to use on the foosball table. If you are making a decision to rent based on the "toys" in the pool room, you & your teens will probably be disappointed.

These are nit-picky cons, but hopefully it will help other guests to know beforehand. Rent the house; you won't regret it.

Good time had by all.

  • 4 of 5

*Plenty of room for six adults and four children (ranging in age from 10 to 16). Kids enjoyed heated indoor pool. Was just the right size for the four of them. Ping Pong table was also a hit with kids and adults alike.

*Fishermen in group not too happy with fishing, but didn't seem to stop them from sitting on dock all night!

*FYI: This location appeared to be a high traffic area for boats and jet skis. Definitely not quiet, yet not overly loud.

*Towels for pool use were ample, but for 10 people would have expected a few more towels in bathrooms. Full bath in pool room was a welcome bonus.

*All in all, a pleasant weekend had by all.

Nice rental

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house with enough room to be comfortable in. The pool isn’t swim only, they have not installed a control panel so you can turn on the jets. Boat lift is nice and big. This was our 2nd time to spend 8 nights in the house and I hope we get to do it again.

Wonderful vacation home on LBJ.

  • 5 of 5

We would come back to this property. It's very spacious. The pool is great. It was great sitting on the deck and looking out at the water and boats. The beds were very comfortable. The towels were luxurious. We had an issue with the DVD player and the manager had someone there right away to take care of the problem. We were extremely happy with our experience.
