Great House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here. The house was extremely clean and is fully stocked with high end appliances, cookware, etc. in the kitchen. The dock and patio areas were fantastic as well. Will definitely be returning!

Great Property!!

  • 5 of 5

We used the property for a central place to hold our family reunion. The home and the property were absolutely perfect. The home had been recently remodeled and was very, very nice ... well appointed and perfectly laid out for a family gathering. Very nice kitchen area, a great screened in porch, large decks overlooking the lake and nice swimming and boat docking on the lake.

We would definitely come back given the opportunity and will HIGHLY recommend to our friends to take advantage of a great setting.

Thanks again Ronda!

Great escape so close to town

  • 5 of 5

My family spent an August birthday weekend at this waterfront home. The home has been updated with some very nice touches and is very well-equipped with nice furnishings, linens and cookware. The owners are easy to get in touch with and very responsive. There's a nice dock where one can tie off a boat, or take in the sun on the upper level deck (hours of entertainment for the kids jumping off the deck into refreshing Lake Austin). Plenty of outdoor furnishings available. Respectful neighbors. Shallow-entry into the lake for the younger ones. All this only 25 minutes away from central Austin!

Great location, nicely updated, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Second time to stay here. Great experience both times. Can't beat the location and the home is very comfortable and easy to use. We skied, boarded, and surfed and then relaxed on the deck and the screened porch. New flooring and renovated bathrooms were great. Looking forward to our next visit.

Newly remodeled. Very clean. Nice decor. Good swimming area.

  • 4 of 5

House has a very nice layout. Homeowners are still adding the final remodel touches such as artwork, extra deck chairs and hopefully privacy coverings for the first bedroom's glass patio door. Lots of outdoor furniture on the deck, near the fire pit and the top of the boat house. The screened in porch had a large wooden table with six chairs and a frig. which kept people from running in and out of the house to get drinks or eat. Except for the two small ovens the other appliances in the kitchen were new and state of the art. The view from the home of Lake Austin was stunning. Even for a weekend the boat traffic was light compared to the eastern end of the lake.

The bottom sheet on the masterbedroom bed had a few tears but I'm sure it will be replaced before the next renters when the owners find out. This bedroom had a nice bathroom with a large glass enclosed shower. Renters are expected to wash and dry any towels used before they leave so we brought our own towels.

Our family really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful lake house.

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location. Plenty of parking spots available. Comfortably sleeps eight. All areas of the house can be sectioned off so guests can rest in peace.

Dock area has a shaded area to lounge in the water. Deck has very comfortable reclining chairs. Checkin was simple and checkout rules were very easy to abide by.
