The Craig's built this home several years ago to take advantage of the great views of Lake Travis and Lake Austin, as well as the Hill Country. We live here when it is not rented, and we know you will love it as much as we do!

Jennifer Craig purchased this house in 2008

Outstanding views of Lake Travis, Mansfield Dam, Lake Austin, Hill Country.

Rooftop hot tub, fantastic pool overlooking Lake Austin, Mansfield Dam, 5 minutes away from Lake Travis - best of both lakes!

PARADISE CLOSE TO HOME

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed in Bruce's house during ACL weekend. It was amazing. The house is absolutely gorgeous. We spent the first couple of hours going from room to room in awe. Every detail is well designed, from the fountains in the pool to the steam room in the upstairs bath to the hot tub on the roof. WOW! We spent the weekend relaxing in the open-air living room, eating nice meals we cooked in the well-equipped kitchen, and lounging in the hot tub. It was such a great weekend, and we all felt as though we were far away from home. What a treat!!!!!

A VERY FUN WEEKEND!

  • 4 of 5
A group of 10 friends and I had our reunion at this home and it was wonderul. The first and only negative was that the fridge was not functioning when we arrived, which was explained by the owner. While we realize these things happen, it did make for some adjusting with out plamned weekend of grilling and lounging at the house.

That being said, the house is phenomenal! The pool and hot tub were great and all the amenties (tvs, sound system, elevator etc) were explained in detail in a handy binder created by the owners. The view was amazing and the pictures dont do it justice! Great bath amenities as well as a fully stocked pantry and kitchen!

I would highly recommend for anyone to stay here!

LUXURIOUS LADIES' WEEKEND

Luxurious Ladies' Weekend
  • 5 of 5
We had a large group of women stay at this home for a girls' weekend. The description and photos of the house were amazing, but didn't come near to capturing how wonderful it really is. We spent most of our weekend sitting by the pool, cooking in the well-stocked kitchen and playing games around the dining room table. We never left the house because we were so comfortable. There was plenty of sleeping space and enough bathrooms to accommodate ten women very comfortably.

We ran into small issues with the hot tub and pool, but the owner spent 30+ minutes on the phone troubleshooting with us, which far exceeded our expectations. We were able to get the pool heater running (definitely heat the pool if you stay in the late fall -- it's worth it!), but the hot tub needed additional maintenance. The owner was very apologetic and refunded some fees to make up for it. We were completely satisfied with the customer service. And, to be honest, the steam shower and soaking tub were great substitutions for the hot tub!

We all felt so relaxed by the end of the weekend and were so grateful to the family for allowing us to enjoy their retreat. All of us will recommend this home to our families and friends!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our home! We appreciate your patience with the issue with the hot tub. We always strive to keep everything maintained and in excellent working condition but unfortunately things pop up and we had to replace a part on the hot tub and it is up and running now. Thank you for the awesome review and we hope you book again! Jen Craig

FANTASTIC HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
I had a group of 10 stay at Bruce's house this October. We had an amazing time overall. The house is very comfortable and has great views of Lake Austin and the dam. Very easy commute to Lake Travis to rent pontoon boats if that's of interest to your group. One of the house's many highlights include the nice rooftop jacuzzi - where else can you have a 360 view of Hill Country, two lakes and be surrounded by gargoyles and astroturf? We also had a lovely time eating bbq under the giant oak tree in the front yard (which wasn't pictured, but is a nice surprise). I highly recommend this house for large groups.

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time renting this wonderful property and we'll definitely be back. The pictures simply don't do it justice. The location is great and the house is a destination itself. The first time we rented the house it was to host a birthday weekend for eight adults. There was plenty of room, everyone loved the house and we had a great time. This time we brought the kids and their friends. Still tons of space and the new gameroom was a huge hit!

We highly recommend this house!

Thank you Bruce for another great experience.

PERFECT HOME IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Bruce's house for a girls weekend a few weeks before my wedding, and it was absolutely perfect in every way. It is even more amazing than the pictures show. The home itself is beautifully decorated and all of the beds are EXTREMELY comfortable. The infinity pool overlooks the lake and the view is amazing. It's a great house for a girls weekend, family get together, or couples trip. In fact, I am already hoping to go back for a couples trip some time soon. Bruce was also very tentative to our needs. Being that we were a group of 10 girls, we of course had a little trouble with the TV (although he does provide detailed instructions to work the TV's). Bruce was very helpful and patient with us. We had a great time and if you are looking for a comfortable home, beautiful view, and a place to relax then Bruce's house can't be beat.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I know the electronics can be a little tricky and I'm glad we were able to walk you through it. I am so glad the beds were comfortable as we switched some out this summer for better beds. Thank you for the great review and we look forward to you booking again! Jen Craig
