Lake Lyndon B. Johnson, TX – Lakeside Retreat

Lake LBJ, TX - Lakeside Retreat

Sleeps 10 - 5 bed / 5 bath condo + 2 car garage - 3763 sq ft

The most popular of the Highland Lakes, Lake LBJ offers people the best fishing, boating, and overall water experience.

Lake LBJ is a run-of-the-river lake, which means you will find water levels fairly stable except during extreme rain events. This makes boating and water skiing popular activities almost year-round.

Beginning in Kingsland, the lake covers the Colorado River footprint for 21 miles to Horseshoe Bay. With 6,449 acres of water surface, it is the perfect most scenic place for a variety of water sports.

The long Colorado River arm, and the Llano River arm that joins it, gives adventurers plenty to explore. Cruise around Horseshoe Bay and Applehead Island to view astonishing properties and connect with the mother nature’s beauty.  It is absolutely breathtaking.

The property

Once you visit La Vie est Belle , you won’t want to leave.

This is a new 5 bedroom 5 ½ bath home with fabulous design and build out features throughout. Wood flooring, beautiful large walk in showers in all baths, open kitchen with several Bosh appliances, 2 large living areas, elevator, 2 outdoor kitchens, walk-way from 2nd floor to patio deck above slip boat dock with great views of the Colorado Arm, and an inviting swimming pool. This lakeside property will absolutely transport you to a different world and ensure that you have an amazing relaxing time on the water.

Perfect for couples, family gatherings and/or small corporate events.

The Lake

Venture up the Colorado River arm of the lake for smoother — and slightly colder — water. The passage is narrow, but it’s great for watersports such as wakeboarding. Mansions, golf courses, country clubs, and more line the edges of the Colorado River.

Venture up the Llano River arm on shallower water. This wide river is perfect for pulling tubers behind the boat.


Smack dab in the middle of Lake LBJ is Sunrise Beach, a shallow sandbar where boaters cast their anchors and spend hours socializing with friends. The depth ranges from waist- to ankle-deep, and people set up volleyball nets, play Frisbee, jam to music, and enjoy the sunshine.

Up and down the lake, fishing enthusiasts will have a great time casting a line for largemouth bass, white bass, crappie, and catfish. Bass fishing tournaments are held on Lake LBJ, and a number of guides make a living taking people to fishing holes known by no one else.

  •   If you need a place to relax, hang with family or friend or be alone to enjoy the beauty and the cleanliness and all the amazing amenities you must go to this Airbnb. I hung out for three days with my adult children and 2 dogs. We BBQ, cooked, played board games, laughed, watched TV and enjoyed the beauty outside. This home had all the amenities and we felt at home. I recommend this home to all, must go and enjoy. The beds were comfortable, slept well, bathroom clean, and the beauty
    Thank you

  •   If I could give 10 stars I would! Celine was absolutely amazing. A great host that made sure everything was taken care of. She truly made us feel like we were home.
    The home itself was very clean and was not lacking a single thing. Anything you could possibly think of, Celine made sure it was in the home. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything your heart desires. Whether you'd kind to make a smoothie, bake a cake, make some coffee or cook a meal. Grilling was on our agenda every other night. 😉
    The location is phenomenal. You are absolutely close to everything.
    If you are looking for a place in the desert, this is your spot. Guaranteed! We loved it here. Thank you for everything Celine.

      My family and I had a great stay here. The location is perfect and the Country Club amenities are bountiful. The home itself is beautiful and we had ducks visit us everyday which my kids (Website hidden by Airbnb) was super helpful and easy to communicate with. We did have to go out to buy trash bags, toilet paper and laundry detergent as my family stayed for 8 days, but there are plenty of stores near by. Overall great stay and would happily return

  •   This experience was amazing, The host was great. I definitely recommend and can see us coming back more often. This place was a central cooled air 2 bedroom, full kitchen, great living room, 2 bathroom, patio residence. The hostess provided us with all the essentials needed for our stay. Really didn’t have to bring much with us. It was neat and very clean. This location is right across The River mall where you can find restaurants and do a little shopping. The property shared several pools, we were lucky to be able to use a pool for ourselves. The views were amazing as you can see all the golfers having a good time. There were geese on all the ponds which were fun to observe. We stayed a weekend in June for the summer and overall loved every minute of it.

    thumb Candy

      Wonderful Stay! Location and accommodations were top notch! We literally had over 20 pools to choose from during our stay. Had a pool to our selves for three days and two to choose from within walking distance from the residence. Cannot say enough about how great it was. If you are a golfer, you are literally on the course. If not, it is still a great view! I have over 1200 nights in hotels and this sure beats checking (Email hidden by Airbnb) or Hilton!

  •   I am not sure what I expected to experience in the desert. However what I did receive was fabulous! Celine was totally responsive through our entire stay. When I wanted to cook more often - she quickly ordered tools to allow me to do so! When we had a little difficulty reading at night in the bedrooms, she ordered new lights! Suffice it to say that she was an extremely responsive hostess! If you are considering renting a place, this would be one that should be at the top of your list.

    The Rancho Las Palmas community is exceptional! From the very nice people who care for the lawns and gardens, to the security people who greet you as you go in and out, they’re all so darn friendly! It’s a community that I’ll look forward to returning to - in the near future. And as a sidenote, the hiking and the trails are absolutely incredible!

    thumb Lynn

      Cc’s home is very clean and comfortable with a great view of the golf course and the mountains. Nice outdoor seating area. Great WiFi, washer/dryer, with clean, modern kitchen and bathrooms. Comfortable beds. The home is walking distance to the resort which has a moderately priced patio dining area with excellent food...particularly breakfast. It’s also conveniently located to local shopping and entertainment. Good value!

    thumb Michael
  •   Exceptional golf front experience in a prime location hosted by CC who goes above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience. We highly recommend this beautiful condo and we have been renting places for the last five years!

    thumb John

      Paradise in February! Especially when coming from Chicago!
    Celine’s home was exceptional in every way and she was the perfect host. So many things to do in the area but we were content spending most of our time on the patios watching the ducks and the golfers. My sister and I were fortunate to be able to spend this time with our 87 year old Mom.
    Never to late to make new memories.
    We WILL be back to make more!
    Thanks Celine!

  •   Book now! This place was absolutely (Website hidden by Airbnb) prides herself on making this your home away from home and it really is. The space is perfect if your staying indoors due to COVID. The open concept allowed us to share laughs from the kitchen through the dining, living room onto the patio! Thoughtful touches like small toiletries, games, plenty of towels and blankets and unlimited tea lights for the patio votives made the stay extra special! The jacuzzi was perfect and stargazing from the patio and front porch was amazing. This was a great escape to forget the troubles of the world. I can’t wait to return!

    thumb Monique

      Celine's place feels so warm and welcoming as soon as you get in the front door.
    She has really put some thoughts into everything, and truly cared about my experience and enjoyment.
    From the moment I booked, she was very communicative and wanted to make sure that I would have the best time.
    The place is mint, very clean and really classy. The kitchen and bathrooms were fully stocked and the little touches made the whole difference. I loved every minute of it. The best was the view... the mornings are great... you get to see active people walking or playing golf and a ton of geese and beautiful birds, ducks, etc roaming around. I will be back again, that is for sure.
