Point Venture House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Gorgeous views of the lake and hill country from every room. This spacious, three-bedroom home is an ideal spot for executive retreats and family vacations. It is located in the fun and relaxing village of Point Venture. Point Venture is a beautiful area on a private, panoramic peninsula in Lake Travis (Texas' clearest lake) with activities for young and old!

If you love boating, fishing, swimming, exercising, or just relaxing and watching magnificent Texas sunsets, this is the place for you. You can relax on one of our decks/ balconies and take in the lovely lake view or take a short walk to our private, gated access to a beautifully manicured, lake park that includes boat ramp, beach, and picnic tables.

The house is on an elevated corner lot directly across the road from the Lake Travis shoreline. The home has vacant wooded lots on either side that enhances privacy. The large, fenced backyard is landscaped with relaxing rock formations nestled among the shade trees.

After a day of fun, relax in the large den that looks to the west and the setting sun or watch your favorite show on large flat screen wall-mounted tv . Step up to enjoy dining at the table for 10 under a rustic deer mule chandelier. Move south for one last snack in the large kitchen with granite/slate countertops and ALL the conveniences of home plus a breakfast bar that looks out to the lake and hills. Retire to the master bedroom that includes a king-size bed with a private bath and private access to your outside deck that offers the North Stars' reflection on the sleeping lake.

Do not forget your guests as they take one of two stairways up to the second floor. As they reach the top they will be greeted with another view of the lake through a wall of windows and a game room for a quick game of poker or bumper pool. Both upstairs bedrooms are private suites. Each room has two queen-size beds and a private full bath. Each room also has a private access to the second story deck that includes one final look at the sleeping lake between the cover of the hills.

In addition to having direct access to the best Lake in Texas to boat, sail, fish, dive, snorkel, water ski, jet ski, etc... you can take advantage of all the great Point Venture amenities. Activities to choose from include swimming in the Jr.Olympic-sized pool, playing a round of golf on the nine-hole course, or playing tennis on one of the six courts.

Point Venture has a full-service marina, a 50+ acre waterfront park with two boat ramps, and is home to The gnarly Gar, Austin's floating restaurant. In addition, there is a public, 9-hole golf course and year-round restaurants within five miles of Point Venture. A 20-minute drive will place you at Lakeline Mall or the new Roundrock Outlet Mall.

About Leslie Byers

My husband and I love Lake Travis. We met and married while at UT. Because Austin is so unique and beautiful, we visited the Austin area often. Several years back we decided to invest in a lake house to have a place to entertain, relax and be together with family.

Leslie Byers purchased this house in 2004

Why Leslie Byers chose Point Venture

Our home is large and comfortable and our location is perfect for views and lake access.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted you to know what a wonderful time we had at your lake house! It was the perfect retreat despite the rain. We did manage to get one day of sun. Thank you very much for everything - we truly enjoyed your home!

Great Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
The place exceeded our expectations. We simply wanted a place for our professional group of 10 to meet and discuss our 2007 objectives. The layout of the home was spacious enough to accommodate our meetings with plenty of privacy for each individual. The rooms are large and the outdoor decks offered exceptional lake views and even better sunsets.

Thanks and we look forward to revisiting the place next year.

Loved the house. Just what 5 retired people needed--4 educators so this was our first September vacation. Quiet neighborhood. The deers show every morning. We saw 6 one morning in the front yard. House was clean. The only thing that I have to say is that there needs to be something that shows the location of the light switches and what light do they control. More towels in the kitchen would be nice. Thanks Leslie for sharing.

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Leslie, Thank you so much for working with us this weekend. We had an absolutely wonderful weekend. Way too short. Your home was perfect, comfortable and the views breathtaking! It was very easy to get to the sandy beach area, that was beautiful and a great place for small children. Your lake house was very spacious. We had more than enough room for everyone to spread out. The pictures do not do justice to how spacious and pretty the home is!
We enjoyed our time and the comfort of your lake house. We would definitely stay there again.

GrifFUN Family Reunion was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We all LOVED your beautiful home. It was perfect! We cooked delicious meals all together in your great kitchen then enjoyed eating around the big dinner table. We played poker, horseshoes, family BINGO and Apples to Apples. One group rented a boat and enjoyed skiing while another group golfed and the rest of us worked a puzzle and ate lots of snacks! We lingered on the porch after the sun set enjoying just being together. The extra house next door worked perfectly for extra beds and the late night poker game for the guys. Thanks for sharing your home!

WE HAD A BLAST!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Okay first let me say that this place was AWESOME! I do not ever leave reviews but this trip definitely deserves it. We had no problems whatsoever while there. Everything we needed other than food was in the home. We had a group of 9, 6 adults and 3 teenagers and there was plenty of room! Cedar Park is FIFTEEN minutes away so don't let the GPS scare you in to not going in to town. :-)
The views were amazing. Deer are everywhere so I highly recommend you stay under the speed limit. We will definitely be going back in September!

Great time had by all

  • 5 of 5
We met some friends for a weekend at this house and it was a great weekend. The house is set up where each of the couples has separate rooms.
The views from this place at night and first thing in the morning were fantastic.
This is a gorgeous place. Would stay there anytime.
