Overview

About the property

Townhome overlooking Lake Travis, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Our cozy townhome is located in the relaxing village of Point Venture. Point Venture is on Lake Travis, 30 miles northwest of Austin in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Lake Travis is 44,000 acres of cool, clean, fun - full of many coves to swim and relax.

You can enjoy beautiful views of the lake while relaxing on the decks or go 1 mile to the waterfront park to jump in for a swim. You can also hand feed friendly deer in the front yard that roam around all hours of the day. The wood burning fireplace can be seen not only from the inside but out on the deck as well.

Our townhome is a three-story waterfront home with casual, comfortable furnishings in the same cove as The Gnarly Gar floating restaurant. We have three bedrooms, three baths, and three decks to accommodate up to 8 people. The master suite is upstairs and has a queen-size bed with a private deck and bathroom with jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom on the main level has a queen-size bed with an unattached bathroom. The third bedroom is downstairs and has two sets of bunk beds with a full-size bed on the bottom of each bunk. It also has its own bathroom.

You will have access to the gated 50-acre waterfront park which has two boat ramps, children's playground, picnic tables, bar-b-que pits, and pavilion. You rarely have to wait to launch your boat. And when lake levels are low, the waterfront park becomes the most popular weekend hangout, thanks to the expansive white sand beach that appears. Fun for the whole family!

There are many activities to choose from in the gated community of Point Venture. We have a 9-hole public golf course with a driving range, putting green, and pro shop. We also have a Jr. Olympic size pool (closed on Mondays), complete with sno-cone stand only a half mile away. And there are tennis courts and basketball courts that are right out our front door.

The Point Venture Marina, located at the mouth of our cove, provides a fuel dock, a store, and The Gnarly Gar restaurant on the Lake. There are watercraft rentals located across the lake and are easily accessible with the Water Taxi. The Gnarly Gar and Water Taxi only operate in the summer season.

Please email us and we'll be happy to send you a personalized quote. 2 night minimum stay required. Holiday Rates may vary. Hotel Tax, Security Deposit, Cleaning Fee, and Pet Fee will be added if applicable.

About Darlene

I am a fifth generation Texan, and an avid traveler. I work overseas often and it seems a shame to let my little house sit there all alone while I'm gone, hence it's listing here. It's not an investment property, it is my actual home and I hope you will love it as much as I do.

Darlene purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Darlene chose Point Venture

I fell in love with the Hill Country a long time ago when I was working at a nearby summer camp during my college years. When I decided to buy a home, it was the only location that came to mind. I think it is the most beautiful and relaxing place in the Great State of Texas!

What makes this townhome unique

The view from the main balcony is just the best. Great place to kick back with a drink and just be still.

Good Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the property. There were ample beds for our family. We especially liked the view from all three floors. We will most likely try to book it again for next year. Thanks for letting us share your home.

Wonderful Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We had the nicest weekend, and loved this house. It was perfect for us and our 3 young kids. They're was plenty of room to spread out, and the house had everything we needed, from a super well stocked kitchen to a BBQ on the deck, board games, and even dvds for everyone in the family.

The kitchen was really amazing. It was so helpful to have everything we needed, and I forgot to pack! :) Thete were even plastic bags and parmesan cheese, which were both so helpful.

The house was a little bit dated, but that didn't detract from our enjoyment one bit. I thought it was homey and pretty. It could definitely use some refreshed small touches, like new bath mats in the main floor bathroom and maybe new mattresses on the bunk beds, for example. My kids didn't complain at all though. :)

The location was super. We went into Austin twice (to The Thinkery museum and to the Austin Steam Train), spent some time at the lake, and walked around the neighborhood. The tame dear are incredible to be around.

Oh, and the house came with a pass to the local park. We picnicked there one night. So nice!!

I'd stay here again and again. The price was great, the service was wonderful, and super accommodating, and we loved the location.

It would have been nice to have a listing of any local attractions tons (boat rentals?) Orv attractions. Though we were able to look stuff up with the free WiFi, so I guess that one is a draw. ;)

Oh, and a sidenote- the neighbors, both permanent and renting, we're SO friendly and considerate. That added to the overall feel to the weekend.

Thanks for everything. This great rental definitely contributed towards a great weekend for our entire family.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to try VRBO & our first time to Travis Lake and both were terrific! The condo was more spacious than I had expected with 3 men over 6' and 3 women who each need their own bathroom counter space; this place more than met our needs! The top decks had views of the lake & lots of wildlife. The eminities with the condo can't be beat:: tennis courts, pool, golf course, marina, lakeside park, boats ramps, etc! We had a few glitches but the owner was quick to repond and she was so easy to work with on my terrific 49th Bday weekend! We loved it & have already recommended to our friends who like us have big men with boats & golf clubs! My family is ready to go back, maybe even when it's cold so they can use the very retro fireplace!

Owner's Response: Thanks! That hanging fireplace is one of my favorite things in the house, and it is very cozy at Christmas time. I'm glad to hear that Darlene was quick to help you out, she's pretty great! Hope to have you again sometime.

Comfy home with great location for enjoying lake!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed! It was warm and inviting. We were a party of 7 and had plenty of room amongst the three floors to spread out. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The decks had a breathtaking view of the lake, which was a short walk from the house. The kids could easily carry kayaks down to the water and fish off the docks. We especially enjoyed the deer, walking trails, and the kids enjoyed the pool. The kids loved looking through the many DVDs and watching old movies at night and even played some of the games! This was the perfect home away from home. We'll definitely stay here again on our next trip to Lake Travis.
