This place is a great place to stay if you're looking for a quiet place with plenty of space. We enjoyed staying at the cottage. We were in Austin to see our son at UT and it was a great place for him to get away as well. It's roughly 20 minutes to UT and less to the south of Austin. It really isn't that far it's just the drive is a beautiful winding road. A nice surprise. The beds are SUPER comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. There is access to a dock that was a nice surprise as well. The owner and manager were accessible and great in communicating with us. The description of the cottage is accurate. The only surprise I had was the photos do not show that the cottage is next to a little road and it's close to other homes. But it didn't matter during our stay. If I were to give constructive feedback I would suggest the cleaning service do a better job overall in preparing the place - we were unable to access the wireless internet as it was locked and the passwords weren't working (we didn't push after the first day as we ended up using my hotspot from phone) - and few light bulbs were blown. We also bought a full length mirror as there wasn't one. We left if there so that's available now. The kitchen is great - nicely set up. Nice TV - easy to work. 2 small things: I recommend arranging the living room sofa to work better with viewing the TV (a small thing but worthy to mention) and taking the little desk out of the master bedroom would allow more space in that area. Hope this helps.
We loved our stay and we would definitely stay here again. It felt like a home away from home. Thanks Adelia!

This place was nice, good location but not on lake and no lake access at all which was disappointing. The beds were kind of hard and older but the house was very clean and well kept and the owners and managers of the property were very nice and helpful.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. In response, we would like to correct the following:
- All bedframes and mattresses were purchased new, one year ago, from Ikea. Firmness of mattresses is always subjective; however, we will take this as a cue to purchase some mattress toppers.
- Our header/description says, "Behind Lake Austin Marina.......;" does not say "on the lake."
- Regarding lake access, there is a marina in front of our property (Lake Austin Marina) that has an area to launch boats for its customers. Customer was also advised of two other marinas just down the street approx. 1/4 mile (Westlake Beach and another directly beside it). Also advised of a public launch across the lake from the property (less than 10 min. drive). It is the high season on Lake Austin and boat slips are at a premium; therefore, it is unrealistic for last-minute travelers to expect to get slips the week surrounding July 4th without advance preparation, especially for large (30 ft.) boats.
-We will investigate the protocol for accessing the lake from the marinas and launch areas in our neighborhood, so that we may better inform customers.
