Counting the bedrooms, the futon and the air-beds, there are 7 separate beds. The living room couch could make that 8 separate sleeping surfaces.

Great Home, Great Host

  • 5 of 5
The house was great, and exactly as advertised. The location couldn't have been better and the boathouse + kayaks were a real treat. Tom was a great host and made us feel truly at home. Fully recommended!

Commodious lake house minutes away from downtown.

  • 5 of 5
The owner - Tom - is a very enthusiastic host and is clearly committed to ensuring that his guests enjoy the experience. This spacious contemporary house is very well equipped and is a great location for a family or group of friends. It is private and secluded but close to downtown and to a variety of restaurants. Access to the lake is via a tram and the boathouse is large and well appointed. We rented a boat that was delivered right to the dock and we had a great cruising tour of the lake. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: What nice things to say. I confess I had to look up "commodious" and found it means roomy and comfortable. We agree with the roomy and we're glad you found it comfortable. Come back and celebrate another birthday!

Great house and location!

  • of 5
Awesome house, close to Hula Hut, and what an awesome home owner! We showed up to find Tom (the owner) there to give us a tour of the home. While the driveway may not be conducive for a large boat, the boat dock is! We launched our 24' Malibu Wakesetter at Walsh Landing (across the lake) and pulled the boat up to the creek side boat dock. Although a bit shallow, Tom was there to help us guide the boat in to follow for the remaining 4 day stay. The house has two bedrooms downstairs, each with a private bathroom. There are two bedrooms upstairs and a futon, with a shared bathroom. This home has the latest upgrades and all was perfect for our stay. I highly recommend this house for any type of stay. Many thanks, Tom!!!!

Perfect...again!

  • 5 of 5
I rented the house from Tom for SXSW 2013 and it was a great experience. This year, I was tasked with planning a bachelor party in Austin and thought the house would be a good fit again. Tom did not fail to deliver. When we arrived, the house was perfectly clean and we had everything we needed. I think Tom has upped his game from last year and all the information and resources are well laid out and easy to find. The dock was in good condition and we used the kayaks a bit to explore the lake. It was beautiful especially in the evening. We comfortably fit 11 guys in the house and had a great time making breakfasts in the large, well equipped kitchen and drinking beers and watching the NCAA tournament in the evenings. You really can't beat the distance of the house from central Austin as well. It's so easy to go to almost any part of Austin from the house. I would definitely rent again from Tom!

Cozy and beautiful home, perfect for the whole fam

  • 5 of 5
We rented this Westlake home to accommodate all our family members coming together in Austin for the holidays. The home and property were just beautiful. We enjoyed cooking in the amazing kitchen, time around the big dining table, and hours together in front of the fire.

Tom was the perfect renter. He spent over an hour going over the house with me before everyone arrived. He keeps a book with instructions for everything you'd ever need to know about the house. He was very responsive and even ordered something we needed for the family at no extra charge. In all, he made us feel welcome in his home, even leaving us a welcome spread of snacks and wine upon our arrival.

We had a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this rental.

Secluded in trees, set back from the road this modern home is located on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Bee Creek Cove of Lake Austin. Privacy is provided to a house full of windows by the tops of the trees from below. A tram provides easy access to a Boat Dock with kayaks and an upper deck for outdoor dining and grilling with a Big Green Egg. Use the rope to swing off the dock into Bee Creek Cove for swimming in waters 4-5 feet deep. Arrangements can be made for tubing, water skiing or just a quiet sunset cruise on Lake Austin with a 12 person capacity Crest Pontoon boat. The getaway is located 6 minutes from excellent neighborhood restaurants and 10-15 minutes from museums, restaurants and entertainment venues in the University of Texas area and in downtown Austin. Just 10 minutes from Zilker Park, home of the ACL Festival and the historic Barton Springs Pool. Also 15 minutes to helicopter and bus shuttles to the Formula 1 track.
