About Us

Liza and John Blatter

Hi, I’m Liza Calderon Blatter, owner of the Tropical Gem. John and I have two beautiful daughters, Blair and Jamie.

We love going to a beach or being on a lake. We were lucky to find both at Tropical Hideaway here on Lake LBJ. You will be thrilled with the resort like pools, our beach, the grounds, the lake views and having direct access to it.

Whether you are with family, here for the Texas Wine Country, special event, wedding, or anniversary, or even just want some alone time on the beach, we can accommodate your needs with our Lake LBJ vacation rental.
