Truly the most unique rental on the lake. It's so unique the Austin Statesman did a huge story on us. Part House Boat - Part Lake House, but so much better than both. And, a whole lot cheaper. A two-story, three-bedroom, full-size house that floats on the water. You’ll love this place - everybody does.
THE LOCATION: We are one of the closest-in waterfront locations on the less developed “North Side” of the lake. 13 minutes to Walmart, HEB, et al. 20 to Mall, 45 to downtown, 60 to the airport.
Our house is the first house inside a no-wake zone on the “Big Sandy” arm. That means you have close access to the main body without all the annoying traffic & commotion.
If you know Lake Travis, you know how hard it is to get to the water. That’s because it is a flood control lake, and you must build above the flood plain.
That means the water is either way down a steep cliff, or way out a shallow slope. Not here. Park your car at the shore's edge, and walk down a few steps (or more in a drought) to the house and to the water.
Tie your boat to the side of the house. When you are ready to get-out-on-the-lake, you’re already there. By boat it's two minutes to Cafe Bleu, 15 to Carlos n' Charlie's, and 30 to The Pier.
THE HOUSE: Designed top to bottom for lake fun. The pool table, the indoor table shuffleboard, the underwater fishing light, and the spectacular rope swing (probably the best on the lake -it's that 'crane' looking thing in the first picture) are the star attractions, but it’s being right on the water that’s just so... COOL.
Speaking of cool, since the house faces southeast, by mid afternoon, the whole front of the house is in shade. It makes it so pleasant to wile away the day in the cool breezes off the lake. Winter time is great at the Float House, too. Toasting marshmallows in the fire pit while you enjoy the fish light on the deck is a great way to spend an evening.
