About Sharon Stanley

I grew up in the Houston, Texas area and fell in love with Austin after spending my honeymoon here in 1961. We spent many weekends and vacations with our children on beautiful Lake Austin. We purchased our property in 1977 when Steiner Ranch was actually a working ranch. We have seen many changes through the years, but one thing has never changed...the beauty and peacefulness of our 'little piece of heaven'. Gardening is my hobby and our property is extra beautiful because I spend lots of time tending my gardens. I am truly blessed.

Sharon Stanley purchased this cottage in 1977

Why Sharon Stanley chose Lake Austin

Although our property is now surrounded by the Steiner Ranch Community, we have remained very remote all these years. Our Cottage sits on 1.5 acres beside a beautiful 5 acre 'day use only' park. There is a nature preserve across from us and beside the park which makes our property a nature lovers dream. The beauty and wildlife must be experienced because it's difficult to describe with words. Our location offers the smoothest water on Lake Austin for watersports, fishing, or just sit and enjoy it's breathtaking view. Because the south breeze blows the cool temperature of the lake toward our property, it truly is the 'coolest' place in Texas in the hot summertime.

What makes this cottage unique

I love to help others create special memories with friends and family which is exactly what happens everytime anyone visits. No one ever wants to leave...children and adults. There is something here for everyone to enjoy and remember.

Exceptional lake house!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at this lake house. The lights at night, the views, the lake, the and amazing set-up for children are incredible. We easily rented paddle boards and a Jet ski that were delivered for the weekend. The lake is also a constant level and unaffected by the drought. It would be hard to find somewhere with a more welcoming and wonderful hostess, as well as enchanting atmosphere. It was a pleasure!

PERFECT, PERFECT, PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to begin!! I recently graduated from college and knew I wanted to host an awesome party - this cottage was everything I had hoped for and more. We had initially reserved the cottage several nights but as our departure date neared, we couldn't help but stay a few extra nights.

Days at the Lake Austin waterfront cottage were filled with fun. From throwing the frisbee around in the yard, swimming and floating around in the lake, participating in and judging competitions off the dock slide, barbecuing delicious meals, AND SO MUCH MORE, I can't imagine having a more perfect setting to celebrate with friends and family. The huge grassy yard meant no shoes all weekend and the newly renovated 2nd floor of the dock filled with ample seating meant lounging in the sun with a gorgeous view in the downtime.

Perhaps one of my highlights of the trip was the cottage itself. Several chandeliers fill the rooms with light, giving them a charming glow. The two bedrooms in the cottage itself have oversized (queen or full) bunk beds - cute, awesome, and allowed everyone PLENTY of space. The living room is perfect for late night card games, hanging out, and just relaxing after a day out on the lake. In addition to the cottage, we fell in love with the private treehouse, the "Love Shack" - so fun!! The "Love Shack" is perfect if you're looking for a little privacy outside of the cottage itself, and it's located right off the cottage's wrap-around porch. And how could I forget the outdoor shower! I could not resist showering off outside after a long day in the sun. It was the cherry on top of the wonderfully decorated and extremely charming cottage.

Last but not least, my review would be absolutely incomplete without mentioning what an incredible host Ms. Sharon was. Upon my arrival, I was overwhelmed with the personalized sign, card, flowers, and delicious cookies. Ms. Sharon took the time out of her day to come down to the cottage to swing around on the porch and talk about life. If you stay here and you get the chance, talk to Ms. Sharon - I promise you won't regret it.

Owner's Response: Wow!!! I am so happy your graduation party was more than you could have ever dreamed it would be. When your Mom chose our beautiful spot on Lake Austin she was certain you would love it. Because she kept the location a surprise I loved seeing your face light up when you rounded the corner not knowing what to expect. The fun and memories families create together at our "little piece of heaven" makes all the planning and building efforts so worthwhile. I look forward to your next visit, and wish you the best as you pursue your dreams. Always remember...dreams really do come true! You are a blessed young woman to have such a loving caring Mom. Thanks so much for taking the time to submit such a detailed review. May God bless you and your family always

Most quaint cottage on Lake Austin, with best lake location too.

  • 5 of 5
First, it's a dream cottage on Lake Austin. Perfect spot on the Lake, because you have undeveloped views on the far shore and next to you is an undiscovered park. We have absolutely no clue how to fish, and I think we must have caught 12-15 fish in the short time we were there. We rented a ski boat and they came and picked us up from our dock (Float on Boat Rentals -- ask for Phillip as your driver.) Sharon, the owner of this cottage, is an absolute delight to work with. She worked with us on some last minute changes that we needed, and she was very flexible. The house itself is very well constructed, and very clean and comfortable. Two large bunkbeds (I think they were queensize), and then a bed in the treehouse as well. I thought my two teens would fight over the treehouse, but they liked it inside the house a bit better. It's the kind of place you can just relax, sit on the front porch, and stare at the water.

Owner's Response: I am so happy your family had such a great, fun vacation at our "little piece of heaven". Catching all those fish was really a special experience for you. Our spot on the Lake is such a peaceful retreat from the hectic pace of daily life. All you need to do is show up, sit still for a few minutes, enjoy the view, the wildlife and the serenity.
It's so wonderful to leave from a vacation feeling so refreshed. Thank you for being awesome guests. I look forward to your return. May God bless your family every day!

Loved it! Will be back!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been renting properties on VRBO for years and this is the best location we have ever rented. We have 4 young boys and they spent the entire time fishing, jumping off the dock and sliding down the water slide. We rented a ski boat one day and they dropped the boat off right at the dock which was very convenient. Sharon is super hospitable and she has made the whole place very warm, welcome and fun. We loved the outdoor shower and used it even if the indoor shower was available. The tree house was great and allowed a place for the kids to go watch a movie while we had some peace and quiet in the main house. While fishing, we caught some small fish and got a lot of bites from big fish but we only had little kid fishing poles so the big fish kept breaking our line but we had fun knowing the big ones were right there. Will be back.
