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.

Very spacious house with great view! House in need of major power washing! Other than that, was all good!
Aimee J. Sep 2018
We spent a girls weekend there and had a great time. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and the house had everything we needed. We even caught several fish right off the dock!
Edward N. Aug 2018
This house was beautiful and it held our group of 10 very easily. you can tell that the owners and management really took time to make sure the house was filled with everything you may need for a weekend get away. The access to water and the downstairs garage area were great.
Carter E. Aug 2018
Everything about this place was great!! The House was beautiful, but the backyard and dock were amazing!!!
Jodi H. Aug 2018
The house had all we needed for a great family weekend. From the kitchen to the bathrooms to the toys for the lake. The only negative is that the lake is very busy, so if you just want to hang out and float by the dock, it is pretty rough with all of the waves and fishing is difficult due to this, as well. People don't seem to have manners on how far away they should be when passing a dock, so sometimes, the waves splashed up over the seawall. But, we had a great time, nonetheless.
Jean D. Jul 2018
This house was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 4 children! The kitchen is amazing and the porch is a perfect place to sit and relax. We will definitely be renting again next summer !
Tiffany A. May 2018
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!
Christian A. May 2018
Great house. Nice and quiet spot on the lake. Amazing view, lots of beds. Great experience! Would recommend
Donna B. Apr 2018
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.

Julie N. Mar 2018
We loved this house. The house is very roomy, the pool downstairs is a great add on, and we loved the dock and all the toys. We had two families all together and had plenty of room. The elevator is a great thing! You don’t have to walk up the stairs for groceries, and it was perfect for my mother in law. We would def want to rent this again!

Was extremely satisfied the way the Vacasa representative handled my situation, I made a mistake on the reservation and they were able to fix it on the day of reservation. Forgot the name of the representative, but thanks again to that representative.

We stayed here for an early Christmas celebration with family. It was a fantastic place! The view over the water is beautiful, especially at sunset. There were many things to do to keep everybody happy from sitting on the porch and visiting to ping pong tournaments to a relaxing soak in the heated pool. We enjoyed our visit very much!
Warren D. Dec 2017
Everything was great. Clean and comfortable.
Debbie S. Dec 2017
Our family of 11 enjoyed Christmas at this vacation rental. Even though this area is generally thought of as a summer vacation location, the size of the house allowed room to escape and the indoor pool provided fun for all ages!

We will most likely be back!!!
Frank M. Dec 2017
This house is in a great location on the river. Views are great. We came in the winter, so did not get to do the water activities. We plan to come again in warmer weather to enjoy the water activities.
Lois J. Nov 2017
Originally, we booked a small condo which was not available due to a digital keypad malfunction.

Jaynelle at VacCasa scrambled and got this upgrade at no cost to us.

My husband and I have been renting houses for 35 years all over the USA. This house, in our opinion is the best of the best!.

First of all everything was clean and all the cabinets, light switches, etc had pristine labels on them so you didn't have to search forever to find a specific light switch.

This place is large with plenty of open spaces. The furniture was tastefully done and there was just enough with out overcrowding.

Kitchen had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and the sheet were top notch.

Patio was perfect.
Daniel T. Nov 2017
Big house never felt cramped. Huge kitchen for gathering around and getting involved in the cooking.
Fiona B. Sep 2017
This is a very relaxing home and location. Perfect for families, and anyone who wants to get away from it all.
Rachel B. Sep 2017
The house was very comfortable and amenities were great. Slept group of 11 very easily. Appreciated the game area downstairs and shed full of water toys.
Ruth H. Aug 2017
Our family loved this vacation home with every detail from the relaxing, quiet location on the water, beautiful lake view, large covered porch and pecan tree shaded lawn down to the lake, character of the lovely decor & comfortable furniture, ample amenities, and incredibly clean everything. We loved too that all wall switches & drawers were labeled with care so you easily could find things. The additional under counter ice maker, such a nice touch. The pretty bed linens were so soft I took photos of the labels to internet order them for my home. The boat house & dock we all enjoyed so much. The storage even had outdoor chairs, a SUP & a big splash float pad all the kids played on together each day. The ping pong table & hang out space in the huge garage was so much fun.

We wish we could have stayed longer! This was my first time booking a Vacasa home. Thank you to everyone from the folks answering the phone when I had questions, to the post-staff I met as we were departing, and Janelle who communicated all details & texted us a welcome on arrival day. They were all so professional, kind--a truly top notch team!
Peggy P. Aug 2017
Beautiful house and great location!
Gerard D. Aug 2017
I would use Vacasa to find our family's next vacation.
Mandy S. Aug 2017
We were so happy with this place. The beds were comfortable, the house was clean, and the kitchen was very well stocked. The elevator was definitely a bonus too! We will definitely stay here again!
Jaime R. Jul 2017
great place to relax and maybe just cruise on your boat or whatever you rent . fishing only late in evening cause to many boats and sea doo's fly by. buy nice and big and comfortable for 10 people to relax.
Kevin S. Jul 2017
You will not regret renting this property. Great part of the lake. No sun in your face from balcony in the morning or evening. House stays cool without having to crank up the AC. Left it at 70 and was perfect. Beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms and kitchen are well stocked and very spacious. The open concept makes this house seem very large and inviting. 3 total showers was nice. Ice maker in kitchen was a great bonus. Elevator was perfect for my parents and bringing up luggage and groceries. Deck and swim area was great. No moss to walk on just sandy. Very clean. Paddle board and Lilly pad were well used. Boat lift kept boat perfect. Garage lower level was great to play game. Indoor pool was great just to relax and my granddaughter to play with my wife. Overall we will back. We had 6 adults, two 18 yo, two 14 yo, and a 16 mo old and plenty of room. I have paid much more for rentals on LBJ and not been as pleased as I was with this home.
. Jul 2017
The HUGE open family room/dining/kitchen was amazing!

All the windows are just wonderful for lake property.

The in home elevator was really great for my parents!

Couldn't have been a better location and it is all about location, location, location!

Memories we will cherish forever!
