Very spacious and great location. Family had a great time.

This was a great home off the beaten path. There were dear wandering the neighborhood which was awesome for the kids and one of our dogs even took off for a quick swim in the creek . The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable.
Ariel R. Apr 2021
We enjoyed our stay at this house. The bedroom set up was perfect with 3 bedrooms and a den with 2 twins where kids can stay. The industrial decor was neat to appreciate. The kitchen didn’t have some of the cooking utensils we would have hoped for such as a 12-14”skillet but we made do. Also, the oaks pollenating made quite a mess in the yard, but that’s anywhere in Texas with oaks at this time of year.

Great place to go to get away from the big city. Plenty of room, clean, and well stocked with everything you will need to enjoy your time with friends and family. There`s no cell service out here, but the internet was plenty fast enough to connect with the outside world if you want to. The owner was very responsive. Great experience overall!

There were 6 of us staying for the week of Thanksgiving. Sleeping arrangements were great. Upstairs beds could use updating or memory foam mattress enhancers. The kitchen was well stocked - probably the best assortment of pots, pans, appliances we have ever had in a vacation rental. Everything we needed to cook Thanksgiving dinner! The dining room table was very comfortable for all of us. In fact it could have easily seated 2 - 4 more. The family room was comfortable. Sorry the fireplace was not available for us to use. Great place to spend family time together! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We were in town for a wedding, and didn’t get to spend much time on the property. What we saw looked wonderful! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Loved the roominess of the house. Wasn`t a problem for us, but the only bathroom downstairs is in the M.Bedroom. Loved the big porch. Waterfront wasn`t as nice as hoped. Channel was very shallow and the ramp to get in the kayak was extremely slippery... fell in the water. But the public dock wasn`t far away and we had a great time fishing there. House was very clean and comfortable. Well stocked with things we need. Deck definitely could use a power washing. It was filthy. Having a lake rental myself, I had to power wash my deck at least once a month. But overall, we had a great time! Thank you!

The biggest positive features were the spaciousness of the house and the serenity and peacefulness of the backyard. My grandson enjoyed fishing and the kayak, and we all had a good time catching up with each other around the fire pit. However, it was evident that the place has been somewhat neglected and is in need of some tender loving care and a thorough, deep clean. Overall, the best part of my stay was having my family together for the weekend. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We rented this house to run from Hurricane Laura. It fit our family comfortably. We spent a lot of time out on the porch. The house had plenty of kitchen ware, and there were a lot of extras like coffee filters, coffee, spices, etc. The only little thing is there aren’t many towels. There were only 2 wash cloths. We had brought some of our own though, so it was no big deal. We all really liked the way the house was laid out. We would love to spend time there again under different circumstances. Having a nice place to stay helped with the stress and worry that came with the storm. We greatly appreciate it.

The location is nice and quiet, the kids liked seeing the deer grazing in the area ,the inside of the house is very nice and very relaxing especially the floors throughout the house very beautiful home inside and out, we did not have to go out and eat anywhere the house has everything needed to prepare meals we went to the local HEB and purchased our food for our time staying at the house my wife prepared the food inside and I grilled outside very nice propane grill by the way we would definitely stay again This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Very nice place to kick up your feet for the weekend. Would definitely recommend!!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Justin C. Jul 2020
The house is older so certain things are dated. It is very spacious. Two bedrooms upstairs allows for sleeping/napping if you have kids. Back yard is huge for family and pets. Small creek in back of property is great for kids to fish (perch). Great location to get on the water. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Lydia G. May 2020
I tend to be very critical, but this place was nice. We chose this place because it was directly across the inlet from where my son was getting married. Here are the only negatives: only one roll of paper towels, the loft area is too warm. All the heat from downstairs rises. Our coffee pot broke (or at least no one in the house could make it work, BUT they brought a new one by almost immediately. We actually made due using the french press they had, but we really appreciated the quick and kind response. All the beds, sheets, blankets and towels were very nice and comfortable. Lots of comfortable places to sit outdoors. We had two dogs, and the yard was great for them. I`d have to think really hard to be critical of this property at all!

Every year we pick a property close to a state park we would like to explore and this was definitely a winner. From the more than accommodating sleeping conditions to the open kitchen setup this house is definitely a winner. The nearby grocery store was a huge plus and with tons of activities less than a 20 minutes away we were always finding something fun to do. At night fall the house was warm and cozy with plenty of room for family game nights and lots of campfire story’s with endless laughter. Hope everyone has as much fun as we did!

The property was perfect as home base for the bride`s family for the wedding weekend. Our only concern was that we had a toddler and there was no working baby gate for the stairs. That would have been really helpful. Otherwise it worked great. We had enough space for people, for making floral arrangements and spreading out.

This was a get together of 5 siblings with 3 spouses to celebrate a 75th birthday. The house was the perfect accommodation for our gathering. It was clean and comfortable. The industrial look of the house is pretty cool. The oaks are beautiful. It`s only a short drive into Marble Falls for anything you might need. The 75 year old states `Best birthday ever`. Thanks for sharing your house This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Shady Oaks Delight was a perfect place to unwind. My husband and I came with our two dogs and enjoyed the deck, kayak, shady oak trees and comfy accommodations. The kitchen is very well stocked with anything you need to cook a meal. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the bed was comfortable. We would stay here again.

Erika K. Jul 2019
Our extended family was staying at a large house in a nearby neighborhood so we just needed a place to sleep for the weekend as that house was full. While we weren`t at the house much, it was nice and was sufficient for what we required. There were even welcome snacks and wine which we thought was a very nice touch.

Mary G. Apr 2019
This home was very nice. Beds were very comfortable. We were even greeted with a bottle of wine to get our weekend getaway off to a nice start! Kitchen had a great assortment of spices, olive oil, non stick spray and zip locks. Oak trees in the back yard are beautiful! We would definitely stay here again!

This house was just as described in the explanation. The house was very clean and was more than expected. This was my first time renting a VRBO. If they are all like this one I’ll be doing this more often. 4 other adults and one child stayed as well and we had plenty of room.

this home is absolutely beautiful, very spacious and centrally located for our purposes. there were so many extras we had not counted on that made our stay even more special, We were able to fish right from the back yard, and when we arrived tired and not looking forward to going to buy food for the evening: much to our surprise the cabinets were stocked as well as having a complimentary bottle of wine waiting on us. was definitely a time to relax and the perfect place to do it.

This Lake LBJ home was a delight to stay in. And it is just as the title says...relaxing. This hidden gem has a really cool feel to it. The tremendous amount of natural light illuminates all of the home’s unique features. It’s been newly renovated and the owner did a fantastic job of decorating it to perfection, giving it a modern day look, with a comfortable, cozy ambiance. You can tell that the owner put a lot of thought into all of the unique details. The house is located in a beautiful setting, surrounded by Oak Trees that must be over 100 years old. It is in a quiet, rural neighborhood, and is ultra peaceful. It was a great place to get away and unwind. We loved the vibe so much that we found ourselves dropping the dinner out options to stay and grill and cook, and just enjoyed the quiet serenity that the house and yard provided. We went with another family and there was more than enough space to accommodate all of us inside and out! The deck was large and had an area for dining and an area to just lounge around and look out on the expansive lawn...on which the kids had lots of adventures. The house backs up to the water, which made it easy and fun to fish and kayak on, multiple times a day. The kids loved that too! Not only was it an easy drive from Austin, It was conveniently located close enough to anything we needed once we arrived. We went to Inks Lake and to other parts of the lake as well to explore and enjoy. There were grocery stores and supply stores that were equally accessible to anything you would need. The windows compliment the space and we loved our view of the backyard and water from the master bedroom. Each bedroom upstairs has a private deck on it. The owner has outfitted the home with more than just the essentials (there were even two hairdryers AND sunscreen). You can tell that the owner put a lot of thought and effort into providing everything they could think of to make your stay a wonderful experience. The cabinets in the kitchen were well stocked with everything from snacks to spices. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this house and will be returning for future getaways. I highly recommend this wonderful home to anyone and have already referred friends who were looking for a great place to stay on Lake LBJ. The manager was responsive, knowledgeable, accommodating and easy to deal with. We`ll definitely be back! Thanks Sally for all of your help and hospitality!

The house itself was the perfect size for our two small families. The loft upstairs couldn`t have been designed better for my nephews (ages 4 and 6). We had no trouble with the WiFi. The decor is playful, and well curated. The owners have thought of everything you might need with tons of extras. All we had to remember were our clothes and groceries! The grounds are well maintained with sitting areas in cozy arrangements. We swam at the community dock, which is less than 5 minutes away by water and kayaked fromat house without issue. The scenery is so peaceful and made for a very relaxing and homey stay. I can`t speak more highly of the owners. They were easy to get a hold of. They were kind, accommodating, and thoughtful. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your home! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Before booking the home I specifically asked if the property could accommodate an 18 foot ski boat. Sally assured me that would not be an issue. The reason we come up to LBJ and rent a home for a week during the summer is that we only have to put the boat in the water once at the start of the trip and once at the end. When we arrived we were extremely disappointed with the channel behind the home. There is a steep drop off from the backyard to the 3 - 4 foot deep channel. It has a muddy bottom with lots of debris from limbs to larger portions of trees. We physically walked the channel to see if there was any chance that our boat could make it from the main waterway to the back of the home....no way! We reached out to Sally and she responded that they don’t advertise the home for “large watercraft”. When I told her that I’d specifically asked about our boat before renting the home and she assures it would be fine she started making excuses. “I don’t remember that email” (I have the email thread) “A larger boat stayed there a couple of weeks ago”. I told her we would have to find an alternative for our boat storage for the week. There was no offer to make this right on their end. The road leading up to the home is pretty narrow but we managed to park our truck and trailer without incident in front of the home. Upon entering the home it at first glance was impressive. It has a deep freezer in the kitchen, nice rooms upstairs and downstairs, a deck in the back, propane grill, and a decent sized yard. There is a TV in the living room and in the master br downstairs and WiFi. The upstairs level was very warm and the doors to the bedrooms needed to stay open to ensure air circulation to sleep at night. The propane grill did not get hotter than 200 degrees and the WiFi was very slow WHEN it was working. The two stars earned were for the unique/updated decor and kitchen that offered for most things needed. I did purchase a can opener and left it for future renters. The bottom line is that if you are looking for a rental on the water for you to swim from or for your small watercraft to access the Colorado River from Kingsland easily I would not recommend this rental. For the amount of money we spent for a week, $3K, we expect and have had much more enjoyable experiences.

We only had one issue with the coffee maker which had old grounds left in it and were overflowed into the entire machine. Beds were comfortable and everything was very clean inside. The decor was interesting and eclectic and nicely updated very nice kitchen and baths very well supplied. The loft was a bit warm even though a/c was turned down low at night and the beds in the loft received a bright & early wake up from sunshine because the loft windows had no coverings. The outdoor patios were nice but not very clean. The kayak supplied had no oar that we could find. No boat dock is a negative but wasn’t an issue for our stay. All these are simple fixes I am sure will be remedied as they become aware. Overall we had a good stay and I would recommend to others and I may be a repeat renter.

We truly enjoyed our stay. The only down fall to this location is the waterfront property. The back yard is a beauty but there was not a place to put our boat in at the house. Very quiet neighborhood very relaxing! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
