Our family considers leasing our place a "rental partnership". We take care of our guests by providing a house with a fun, relaxing environment at an affordable rate. Families choose our place primarily for the lake experience - fishing, swimming, kayaking, boating, etc.
Many of our guests prefer our place over a hotel or other fancier vacation homes because of it's charm and unique character. Please understand this is not a shiny, new house. If you are looking for an updated, everything perfect house there are a number of much more expensive homes that will meet this expectation.
Instead rates are kept low by re-purposing materials and furnishings and planning improvements based on our VIP guest feedback.
We don't make a large profit -- most all of the lease payment goes towards property tax, maintenance and upkeep. Our goal is to keep the house affordable so that many people can enjoy a weekend on Lake Austin!
Our house was built in the 80's and is a "labor of love" house that reflects our years of work -- constructing decks, painting railings, remodeling rooms, landscaping walkways, finding unique furnishings and always making sure that there are kayaks, fishing poles, rafts and other lake amenities to inspire families to play and laugh together!
Our Lake Austin Vacation House is a great weekend get-away. You are right on the lake so you can swim, kayak, rent a boat, fish, grill out, or just relax with a good book and a great view -- everything is just a few steps from the house.
We keep the house nicely furnished with views from almost every room. Outside you'll find Multiple Decks... (2) Kayaks...Rafts/floats...Weber gas grill.....Boat lift, Chaise loungers...Cool Waterslide...Porch Swing...fishing poles, Chiminea fireplace...extra Charcoal Grill and more!
The house feels much like a "treehouse" -- lots of shade, tropical plants, hanging ivy from the trees - even a "swiss family robinson" style basket from the upper balcony to the lower deck - perfect for lowering snacks and drinks.
This charming home attracts guests who want something special and unique - a place to share fun memories with family/friends. We have over 400 positive reviews in our guest book!
