Secluded. 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths. Fireplace, Boat Dock, Gourmet Kitchen.

Only15 minutes from the Convention Center and all the music venues!

NOTE: If you are interested in a 3-day minimum, call for availability, even if the Calendar shows this hideaway is unavailable.

This is a secluded, new, modern, but casual home located on the Bee Creek Cove of Lake Austin in the suburb of West Lake Hills, 15 minutes from downtown Austin (site of SXSW) & Zilker Park (site of ACL Fest) and about 20 minutes to the Austin Bergstrom International Airport. It is an easy place to relax before or after any Austin events, with a fireplace, a big screen TV, a great sound system, wired and wireless internet, and a boat dock (with kayaks) that makes you feel like you are miles away, on a quiet country creek.

Check in and check out time is 12 noon. There are four bedrooms, each with a bed that sleeps 2 people (a king, 2 queens and a double) for total of 8 people. There is also a single futon and two air-beds (with privacy screens), which could provide accommodations for 5 more, for a total of 13 people at no extra charge. 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.

We will be happy to arrange for maid service, grocery delivery, a chef, catering, massages and advice on local attractions.

We accept payment via HomeAway Book-It-Now Visa Button plus PayPal payment can be arranged (so that you can use American Express or direct bank debits). NO CASHIERS CHECKS will be accepted ever.

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.

This is a gem of a house located in a beautiful area that is very close to downtown Austin. The house is cozy with brilliant windows and doors to support the natural beauty of it's surroundings. We had a great, busy weekend while enjoying the comforts of this beautiful home. Our host was as accommodating as any owner I have ever met, going above and beyond in making certain our visit was as detailed and desired as possible. From providing local information, to making sure that the house was customized to our party size and needs, Tom was the best! Great house and we highly recommend seeing it and staying there!

Perfect setup for a lake weekend

We had a group of 10 make the trip to Austin for a weekend spent on the lake during the day and at the house and downtown at night, and couldn't be happier with our choice to stay here. Top to bottom, the house exceeded expectations and is first rate across the board. From the pre-wired house stereo with a built in iPod connection to the "tram" down to the boathouse, this house has everything you need for a great weekend on the lake.

The owners couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating when we showed up. They took the time to explain and show us every inch of the house and even greeted us with some local wine and beer.

By far my best rental experience.

Thanks again for everything!

We'll be back soon.

Great Location, Wonderful Home, Fantastic Owner

We stayed in the home for 3 nights for a bachelor weekend. The house is in a perfect location as its on the lake in a private, quiet cove and very close to downtown Austin (10 min cab). The house is perfect for entertaining as it has a great layout with placed to socialize inside and outside with a sound-system that covers it all. We had 10 guys in our group and we all slept comfortably and Tom, the owner, made sure we had more than enough blankets, sheets, toiletries, etc. We used our boat and docked it to the large two story private dock that sits below the the hill from the house. We enjoyed our stay and all discussed going back. The owner was great to work with and made the whole experience great. Highly recommended.
