David owns and manages Camp David Retreat. Using his business expertise to develop properties beyond their original and traditional purpose, David created a new vision for this property, which was a former dog boarding facility.

David purchased the property in 2021 and after extensive renovations, opened it to the public in September 2022. David has 40+ years in commercial real estate and business brokerage. He began working in commercial real estate in 1979 and formed David E. Jones & Associates, LLC in 1986, a full-service commercial real estate firm offering appraisal, brokerage, and consulting services for clients throughout Texas. David is a licensed broker and a state-certified real estate appraiser in Texas. In 2020, David formed David E. Jones Brokerage, LLC, to focus exclusively on business and commercial brokerage and advisory services.

'what our guests are saying'
Joe - Dripping Springs Outlook Magazine. May 2023
We felt more relaxed the moment the front gate at Camp David Retreat started to open. The property itself is easily accessible from south Austin and very open. The views of the Hill Country are just exquisite. We started our visit with a dip in the pool which overlooks a little valley, as does the hot tub. My 5-year-old found countless things to play with from the obstacle course to the ring toss game on their amazing patio. The patio at the Lodge may be my favorite aspect. It's expansive and the perfect place for hosting our next family get-together. It's beautiful and casual and there's so much space. The chef's kitchen inside the Lodge is a dream. We finished our stay watching the sunset in Adirondack chairs surrounding a fire pit and overlooking a valley. We can't wait to go back and have already told so many friends and family members about it, in hopes of gathering together at Camp David Retreat soon. Highly recommend it.
