We rented this house for a women's reunion--13 of us. The pool and hot tub were the best features although close neighbor on one side was angry with our pool noise (and we were quite noisy). Sleeping quarters are tight but doable if you are good friends. We didn't count 5 actual bedrooms but did sleep 13 with one person on couch in living room (not a sofa bed). The kitchen is large and pretty nicely equipped except trash compactor didn't work and frig/freezer took forever to get cold. Bring your own paper towels. Nice little frig in outdoor kitchen by pool. Ice maker in frig and separately in main kitchen a plus. Washer and dryer available but bring own soap. LOTS of stairs so be prepared. Grocery store nearby (not walking distance) and Lake Travis and Oasis quite close. The owner also has nice villa about 3 miles away and let us go sit by that pool since our flights were much later than house's 11 am checkout. But here are the cons: Driveway is steep and cars all scraped bottom (not an issue for trucks/SUVs). We were running low on toilet paper and owner said she left what she thought was adequate amount so the rest we would have to provide ourselves. Really? This is a "luxury" property and the rate is not cheap so it's hard to understand why the owner would refuse to spend $5 on extra TP. No dish soap in kitchen and we asked them to bring more when they came to water plants but it didn't happen, a few bath rooms had no hand soap so we had to go to store for that too. Overall the house was in need of some basic maintenance/painting. Had really cheap door knobs/locks, cobwebs in windows, some dead plants around deck/pool (we actually watered very dried out plants for them one day) and the décor was not what you'd expect for a property in this area and at this price (e.g., plastic faded flowers stuck in sculptures and garden). One of the full baths is actually in the garage. It is very dark-no window--and there were no towels, which we noticed too late. Be sure to get some from upstairs and take with you or you'll have an awkward situation. Overall it was far better for us than a hotel in terms of togetherness but lacking in the amenities we expected for the price. But we did appreciate the owner allowing us to visit other property for a few hours and it was quite nice.

Nice House, poor customer service :(

The house was nice, clean (with the exception of one bathroom), and comfortable. The hot tub was not in working condition (which was a big deal to our group since the weather was +/- 50 degrees) and Eva, the owner/manager, was unable to fix it. After expressing my disappointment that I did not get what I paid for, Eva became very rude and confrontational. She offered for our group to use a hot tub at another location but that is not what we paid for. The agreement was for a hot tub at the location we rented. I did ask Eva to refund a small portion of our money since the hot tub was not in working condition. She refused to even discuss refunding any money or any other options to ensure that we were satisfied customers. I did not push the issue at that point. Upon checkout the next day, she asked how our stay was. I expressed my disappointment with the hot tub issues. She immediately became rude to me and the other guests. Her final statement before storming out was that she would not charge me the $43 dollars for the credit card processing fee IF we did not leave any reviews. If we left any negative reviews on the property, we would not get the $43 refunded. She called back 15 minutes later and offered 1 person in our group a one night stay at one of her bed and breakfast locations. This would have solved the problem if offered initially, but due to her confrontational reaction to our concerns, I was unable to get any takers on the free one night stay.

To summarize, the property is nice but the owner does not problem solve professionally. Hot tubs break on occasion. It is her job to make sure all items are working prior to our arrival. If there are problems with the property, it should be handled in a professional manor. Eva's argumentative approach left a negative impression of our stay. I would not recommend renting from this owner.

Thank you for being so gracious and offering your property to us. The serenity of the neighborhood and being close to the water made our stay so relaxing. The pool and outdoor kitchen made it complete for ourselves and the kids. We will definitely be back.

This property is absolutely stunning. The floor plan is ideal for our group of 8. Details are everywhere you look. Paradise on Lake Travis.
The house is decorated with good taste and quality furnishings. Very clean. Kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite tops, a jetted tub in the Master bath . The beds were extremely comfortable. Everything here is top of the line. The atmosphere was relaxing. The views are beautiful and the pool/hot tub very nice. We stayed for 2 nights and booked for July with two other families. If you are looking for a great place for a weekend or a week, do not hesitate to book this property
