BEAUTIFUL MONTINA BEACH ON LAKE TRAVIS-WALK TO THE WATER!

Hudson Bend House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Montina Beach is one of a few properties on Lake Travis with a gradual slope to the water. The park like setting from the beach area has been described by a real estate appraiser as the 'FINEST LAND on Lake Travis.' The view looks out across one of the largest areas of the lake with some of the largest hills in the Texas Hill Country as the backdrop. You will find this lake front area much more scenic than anything in Lakeway due to the larger lake area and the bigger hills; and much closer to town/amenities than Briarcliff or Lago Vista.

The beach area is large and covered mostly with grass. There is a large rock bon fire pit for those special evenings with friends. Yes, wood is supplied complimentary. There is also a grass volleyball court for your energetic gatherings with friends. Due to an extended drought, Lake Travis is about 30 ft. lower than average so there is a sandy/rocky shoreline visible that is not shown in the pictures. However, the lake still has a lot of water! The dock is currently not available due to the low lake level. If desired, another larger dock can be rented separately by advance request.

The property is located on the highly desirable south shore of Lake Travis, close to Austin's vibrant lifestyle and near all the amenities you desire from the finest in shopping at the new Hill Country Galleria and Lakeline Mall to great restaurants including Hudson's on the Bend, Rocco's, The Grove, Steiner Ranch Steak House, The Oasis, Mesa Rosa and Hill Country Pasta House. There are six exceptional golf courses within ten minutes drive. The house is located on approximately six acres with another house that the owners live in.

Austin's legendary night life must certainly be experienced if you have never been to downtown Austin at night. The house is a great place to stay with friends when in town to watch the exceptional athletic programs of the University of Texas Longhorns. It is about a 25 minute drive to downtown or the UT campus.

The home is about one mile from the world famous Carlos N' Charlies and several other waterfront restaurants are within minutes by boat. There is nothing like a sunset boat cruise and dinner at a waterfront restaurant, then a leisurely boat cruise back home.

Boat and jet ski rentals are available nearby; or launch your own at a nearby marina and park it at the dock on premises. Spend a day wakeboarding, water skiing or parasailing. Yes, they will pick you up right on your boat dock to go parasailing! If you are young enough in spirit, you may also want to venture into Devil's Cove for one of America's biggest parties every summer weekend - it is a five minute boat ride away.

The house has a wonderful open design. The kitchen, living room, breakfast area and dining room are all combined in a very large area without walls that makes for a great social gathering point. There are two outdoor living areas and three grills for your enjoyment. One bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and also a private bath. The third bedroom is smaller and houses a bunkbed which has a full size bed on the bottom, a twin bed above, and a pull-out twin bed that recesses under the full size bed. The smaller third bedroom has access to a third, common area bathroom. A comfortable futon is located in an area of the great room and two roll-away beds are also available. All bedrooms have televisions.

Please note that photos were taken with the lake level at a more normal level and the lake levels can fluctuate from drought to floods. Please ask the owner if you want to know the relative lake level.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The property was fabulous. We enjoyed the beach area and the fire on the beach at night was truly special. It was our second visit to Montina Beach-we will be back again! Thanks for the memories!

______

J. R. Lacey purchased this house in 1996

You will love the vast wide open feel of the beach with its absolutely spectacular view which is framed by some of the largest hills in the Texas Hill Country.

The house is located on Lake Travis but close enough to downtown Austin, the University of Texas and the many lake area activities to make it convenient to nightlife and UT sports and places such as The Oasis or the Hill Country Galleria. Choose a peaceful evening under the stars or all the action you want at the places above.

Just got back from a weekend at Montina Beach House. It was lovely! I was there with friends for a family wedding. It was a great location and the house was perfect. Very spacious and clean. The accomodations were perfect for us. We barbequed and enjoyed the Lake with a boat. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. We would love to come again sometime in the future.

Lake Travis property

  • 1 of 5
The pics online reveal for the most part all rooms but it doesn't reveal it needs renovation, updating and a new cleaning crew. We were disappointed that the bed coverings, pillows and mattresses were in poor and dirty condition. Some of the sheets on the beds looked as though they had not been washed from the previous guests. There were bugs and dead roaches in pantry. The utility/laundry room had a broken door and washer/dryer were filthy. Outdoor patio area was most disappointing, as it had not been cleaned for new guests. Patio table and furniture had dead bugs, cobwebs, dried bird droppings. We had to buy our own small BBQ pit to cook outdoors due to the 3 they had there were filthy with bird droppings and leftover mess from previous guest.
In the queen bed room with own bathroom, the tub did not drain well at all. The tub would fill up with dirty bath water before finishing our shower. The top bunk bed has poor springs and bottom cover to that bed was torn with hole that hangs down into bottom bed.
Overall the house has an old musty smell. We bought candles to help with odor.
We did take advantage of the volleyball court area outside and the fire pit. The water level is low in lake so you can't fish from docks on property. Not that you would want to, as one of the docks is in worse condition than the house.
Needless to say, we were very disappointed with our stay. Considering what we paid, the house and overall condition should have exceeded our expectations. Unless this property has a total makeover and remodel, we would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were disappointed with your stay. The house is cleaned for a full 6 hours after every stay by a very dedicated staff. Although they initially took offense to their steam cleaned floors and sanitized bathrooms, they decided to work even harder. If they missed something I am sorry. The exterior of the house is treated professionally every month to control bugs. Looks like you found one inside after the cleaning service left the house. Sorry.

I am very sorry for the patio being dirty. As you know the service hired to pressure wash the large outdoor patios did not show up and did not notify us of such, which is why you received a generous refund that you did not mention. By the way, we fired the pressure washing service!

Also, the next guest notified us of the slow draining tub and it was fixed the same day! I wish you would have told us. The bi-fold doors to the laundry room were broken and the handyman simply couldn't get to us before your visit. Sorry, they were fixed a few days later.

If you would have read the agreement you would have known that each guest cleans the grill prior to their use, not after. We decided not to add a cleaning fee for the grill since most guests don't actually use the grills. Therefore the stated policy is that you clean it for yourself if you are going to use it, but don't have to clean it afterwards.

Yes, the boat dock you mentioned was very dirty - however, you did not rent the dock so it was not made ready for guests!

I am sorry you feel like the house needs renovation. The pictures do not lie, so it shows exactly what the house looks like. Renovations in the past couple years include a patio renovation that added travertine flooring and a new slate table for our guests to enjoy. The kitchen was remodeled and as you know has beautiful granite counters and new stainless steel appliances. New stone floor tiles in the huge living area and new carpeting in the bedrooms were added. A new desk was also added for those conducting business. Every asset manager tries to reach a balance between renovation costs and rental charges. We are constantly renovating so any specific suggestions that would have made your stay better are welcome and appreciated.

I am happy that you enjoyed the volleyball court and the bon fires. Thank you for your feedback.

Labor Day Weekend - 2013

  • 5 of 5
A very good, well maintained, property. We really enjoyed our stay. There were only three minor issues.
1) The A/C vent grill in the master bath was missing.
2) The hot water was too hot, almost scalding, in the kitchen. The temp setting for the water heater was too high and should probably be lowered.
3) It was pitch black at night as there were no night lights at all, making a trip to the bathroom during the night an adventure.
The kids really enjoyed the bunk beds. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, pots, and pans. excellent flat screen TV, comfortable furniture, lots of seating for meals, a great patio table and chairs with an umbrella. It was great eating breakfast on the patio.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments and I am happy your visit was enjoyable. Sorry about the AC vent in the master bath. The room was painted 2 days before you arrived and they didn't totally finish the final touch up, etc. I will lower the water heater temperature. The previous guest must have liked very hot water. Thank you once again!

Nice place but needed a good cleaning

  • 2 of 5
We arrived at the house that sits on a beautiful property in the middle of the afternoon. Initially we thought the home was lovely, but as we looked closer, there were cob webs in the corners, bugs behind TV, froot loops and lifesavers stuck on the sofa and futon and the floors were filthy. We had to actaully throw our socks away after walking on them.
There was laundry in both the washer and dryer, which the owner did come over to tell us about. The master bedroom had a really bad odor. We opened 4 bars of soap and laid then around the room, which thankfully helped.
The other issue is that the pictures are kind of deceptive in the sense that it appears as though there are 2 queen bedrooms, but there is only a King/bath, (1) Queen w/bath and a bunk-bed room that has a bath through a closet. My error for not confirming.
Other than that, the house itself was very comfortable and the common area was a nice place to gather. I would advise the owner, who was very nice, to reevaluate their cleaning service (if they have one).
Its a shame because the house has an enormous amount of potential...

Owner's Response: I am glad you thought the property was beautiful. I am sorry to hear you thought it needed a good cleaning. The house gets six hours of cleaning before every guest check-in, but it sounds like the cleaning crew didn't bring their A game before your check-in. I challenged them on the issues you brought up and in fact I was pleasantly surprised to find they really had cleaned most corners very well and we couldn't find any cob webs. I did find one dead bug behind one of the televisions. Sorry, the outside of the house is treated for pests every month and that results in an occasional dead bug. Unfortunately, in warm climates we do get some bugs no matter how hard we try. There was no odor at all in the master bedroom before or after you left, so I can't explain that one.

I am really sorry about the floor. Although it is swept and wet mopped before every single guest I did find it still a little dirty and not to my standards either. Thanks to you, we are now implementing steam cleaning of the hard surfaces prior to each guest. That will provide a better cleaning than the wet mop, which itself can be somewhat dirty. Thank you for your feedback as we strive to always provide a better guest experience. It was a pleasure having you as a guest.

Great Spot to Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Overall this property provided an excellent stay and good times. The house was in great condition, full of all the necessary amenities. The walk down to the dock was a little far but the owner provided us with a golf cart. The dock itself was quite impressive. With a fridge, stereo system, plenty of noodles to float on, and comfy bar we had everything we needed to stay cool in the Texas heat. Even with the owner's house on the same property we felt like we really had full-run of the place. I would definitely recommend this to any group looking to get away from the city (but not too far) and see what Texas has to offer.
