Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. We had a wonderful week enjoying the amazing pool and spa, cooking out, watching movies in the media room and playing some golf. It was a great way to enjoy ourselves and family over the 4th of July. We look forward to staying again! Take care and much love.

Brilliant Girls Weekend on Lake Travis

  • 5 of 5
You can want for nothing while staying at this beautiful property!

We spent the days lounging around the pool, BBQing, playing horseshoes and perfecting our seriously lacking putting skills. The whole house is wired to get radio/I pod music inside and out and had the weather been really bad we would have happily used the awesome media room for chick-flicks (requisite of a "girl's weekend” you see), but we managed to stay in the pool and hot tub relaxing for days thankfully.

There is ample room for food storage (3 fridges including one in the outdoor bar area) and the kitchen is brilliant for preparing big meals with plenty of seating to accommodate all of us (12 girls!!) for dinners. Oh… and plenty of ice makers all around… so don’t buy any!

The bedrooms are lovely and all have their own bathrooms. All the linens are nice and the beds are comfortable.

We had massage therapists come to the house and 6 of us got wonderful treatments. They were excellent and very accommodating. Ariana set that up for us and here is her plug: http://www.arianainstitute.com

One of us even managed to use the gym!

Nate (the owner) is very easy to deal with and terribly obliging as well!

This house “does what it says on the tin":

BRILLIANT GIRLS WEEKEND ON LAKE TRAVIS!!!

PS- all of the ladies with kids in attendance said they would bring their families here in a heart beat.

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5
The house is great! There are only a couple of downsides to the house, which in the long run are not the end of the world. I'll knock those out real quick...
1. The house is a solid 45min from downtown if you plan on going.
2. You are 45-50min from any part of Lake Travis with water.

We had one issue with the A/C upstairs, I texted Nate and within an hour an A/C repair man was there to help. No problems for the rest of our stay!

We arrived to a very clean and well maintained house. GREAT kitchen, with tons of space to hangout and cook. There is a TON of fridge space at the house; there is one in the kitchen, large fridge in the pantry and an in-bar fridge on the outdoor patio.
The pool and spa were perfect, great to spend time in. This group loves to eat, so we took advantage of the grill as well.
Go to the grocery store on your way in, get everything you think you might need food wise. The HEB is a solid 25 min... The house has all the kitchen utensils you could need and some spices, so if you need something specific buy it. There is a general store about 5 min from the house if you need something last minute.

Some people in other reviews complained about the neighbors dog coming to the pool. He came over once and I told him to go away and he did, never came back again... No big deal. Also, people complain about no lake behind the house anymore. True, there is no more lake behind the house. But you would be hard pressed to find ANY "lake" house on Lake Travis anymore. Do your research, the is about 45ft lower than average right now. IT'S LOW.

All in all, a great house and a great weekend spent at The Ranch!

*WARNING VERY BAD EXPERIENCE*

  • 1 of 5
1) If you are looking for a waterfront home to rent, this one is not for you! I understood, somewhat, I am not from around the Austin or surrounding area, that the water level was low. This was relayed to me by disclaimer on the house description, and on the email received by the owner before arrival. So, I emailed the owner Nate, and told him we were bringing a jet ski and boat, was there somewhere that we could dock and launch them. He returned my email with the name of a marina...so when we were close to the property and looking to dock we called the marina and were told that it wasn't in use, and hadn't been in use for some time, and there wasn't a marina anywhere around that would be. This could have been better explained, it looks more like a dessert house than a "waterfront"! The pictures are TOTALLY misleading. Not only can you not "use the boat ramp and dock at this time due to low water levels", you need snake boots, and a chainsaw to get to it!
*When I confronted the owner, his reply was "I said you could RENT watercraft", total lie, I saved all the emails!
2) The house is very pretty, but not as clean as I would have liked (considering the amount of money it cost to rent). Example: dirty dishes, food on the silverware in the drawers, coffee still in the pot, leaking fridge, floors needed to be swept/mopped, and there were several bugs including live scorpions.
*When confronted the owner says "if there is a problem you are suppose to call and report it immediately, so I can send someone out to fix it". I was staying with children in this home, without my husband for part of the time, the last thing I wanted was strangers in the home with us, very unsafe. The owner should come out and check his property before guest arrive, I didn't pay to be the home inspector!
3) Last but certainly not least, what you don't see in the VERY outdated pictures is the neighbors house that was built RIGHT beside the pool, at least a couple years ago. When you're laying out by the "private" pool, they can see you through their widows! That's not even the greatest part, their black lab comes and swims in the pool whenever he likes!
*When confronted the owner had NO comment about the house, all he said was he could have called and had them put the dog up, but I feel this should have been done before we got there. I didn't call and report it, b/c I was alone with children, and didn't feel a confrontation with neighbors was safe.
**VERY BAD EXPERIENCE**

Owner's Response: We take feedback and reviews very seriously and do know that not everyone will be completely satisfied. Unfortunately this guest didn't enjoy the home for several reasons, but the biggest challenge we had was we weren't aware that she experienced any issues until after she had left the home. We make it very clear to every guest that they need to call us immediately if they have any issues and we have a crew of folks standing by to fix issues. We have to know about the issues to remedy them. It's unfair to think otherwise.

In response to the water levels, we make it very clear on the main page of the house description that due to water levels that are out of our control, the dock and ramp are sometimes not available. This guest knew this when she booked, signed the contract which clearly stated this, and when the instructions were sent the week prior to her stay we mentioned it again. We were very surprised to hear her mention this in her review like it was a mystery to her.

We must emphasize that of the 100+ reviews we have gotten over the years, a review like this is the minority. If you have any questions or concerns about this review, please don't hesitate to call us prior to booking.

Not what I expected for the price

  • 2 of 5
The house was nice, but overall I was not impressed with the property as a whole. The photos are outdated and misleading.

First off the house is over an hour from the city, on the FAR end of Lake Travis. It took a little over an hour to get to the city and 30 minutes to the nearest grocery store, which wouldn't have been bad if we were actually at a "lake house. The lake behind the house was completely dried out and appeared to have been a drought for a few years. When I spoke with the owner about it he said that the lake had been dry for a year and a half, but the pool guy said that it had been that way for around three years. I knew that it had been over a year and a half because it literally looked like a desert back there. Not one drop of water. The ground was so hard that you could walk across to the other side. Another tell-tell sign were the super tall trees that grew out of the dock. It was horrible. It just completely defeated the purpose of staying so far from everything. We would've done better off renting a nice house with a pool a bit closer into town. The owner could have been clearer with that detail, so that we could have at least been aware. This went beyond a hi-lo periods. I think the title and photos should be updated because you WILL NOT be getting a lake house with this property. Secondly, the pool lights did not work so it was quite dark being out at the pool at night. We notified the owner, Nate, and he said that it was because the water level wasn't high enough to activate the lights, so he sent the pool guy out the following morning to add more water. Unfortunately, the lights still didn't work and the pool guy said he wasn't sure why. I didn't even bother to call Nate back because I felt it was pointless. The pool water, lights, and anything else should have been taken care of before we arrived. Lastly, the actually house was nice, but smaller than it appear on the photos. Also, the house may be on 6 acres, but not usable acres. It's all cactus, scrubs and wooded area. And there's another house on the land with people living there, literally next door, so there's not a lot of privacy. Oh yeah..and their dog likes to come over for a little swim during the day.

All in all, I think the house is over priced considering it isn't a lake house, which limits the activities, and how far it is from everything, even the corner store is 15 min away.

I advise anyone that rents this house to beware...you are NOT renting a lake house!

Spent a weekend at the Ranch with some friends and family and all I can say is this place is amazing! There was always something going on whether it was a movie playing in the theater, drinks being served at the bar, steaks on the grill, or simming in the pool/hot tub. We enjoyed all of this while watching many deer roam around the property. The lake was very low but this was expected as we booked the trip, I can honestly say lake or no lake this place is awesome and we will defiantly go back!

Paradise is closer than you think

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful and provides you with everything you can think of and some. Even though we had a couple of bumps in our getaway, Nate was more than accommodating and we still had a blast regardless of the lake's low level. We will definitely return when we come back to Lake Travis.
