STAY ON THE LAKE! CLOSEST TO TOWN! MAIN BASIN - NEAR DAM!
The Palms on Lake Travis is a privately-owned, gated, high-end, resort vacation rental for those who wish to stay on Lake Travis. The Palms is conveniently located lakeside, 1 mile from the Oasis ('The Sunset Capital of Texas') on the scenic Comanche Trail drive around the main basin of Lake Travis. This location is prime for those who want to enjoy Austin - it is only a 30 minute drive to downtown Austin and about a 35 minute drive to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport!
There are two guest units on The Palms property that sleep up to 10 in total. For parties of 6 or less, we can offer the Garden House only at a lower cost.
A cove and covered dock is available to use for swimming, fishing, and sunbathing. Boaters may tie up to the dock with advanced notice. A public boat launch is located just across the main basin from us (you can see it from the property) at Mansfield Dam - it's about a 3 mile boat ride.

WEDDINGS AND EVENTS: Please note that, due to our setup, we are unable to participate in weddings or other events with more than 25 total guests. We also have chosen not to participate in bachelor parties of any sort. We welcome out of town guests and family members of the bridal party to stay with us, and we will make every effort to ensure they have an extremely enjoyable stay in Austin!
On dates where we have a partial rental (Garden House Only or Lakefront Suite Only), and the other portion is available for rent, it will appear as a Tentative Rental on our calendar. On those dates, we will have availability left for smaller groups of 4-6 guests at a lower rate, depending upon which unit is already taken. Feel free to reach out and ask us about those dates.
Our preferred method of contact is the Request Form on HomeAway or email. We have day jobs and receive too many calls to return in a timely manner. We have found that we can respond to you much more quickly via email.

We live on the property. We are there if you need something, but otherwise we stay out of your way. You might see us in the driveway or walking down through the backyard to get to the dock. We have both traveled a lot, and we strive to make The Palms everything that we want when we travel.
The Palms is located on the gorgeous Lake Travis main basin. Lake Travis is a rock lake, which means the water is generally a sparkly blue color (vs the brownish water found in a muddier lake). The cliffs around it add to the beauty of the area. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with a scenic view and privacy, this is the spot for you!
The main basin of Lake Travis is the closest area on the 65 mile lake to downtown. We are also conveniently located just a mile down the road from Oasis Texas, with several restaurants, shops, and live music! Since The Palms is on the main basin, we have a beautiful view of the lake, and you can walk down to the dock from the backyard! If you have a boat, you can even tie it up to the dock at no extra charge!
