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.

Hillside Lake Austin Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Ronda's spotless lake house is an island of light and luxury in the midst of the rugged limestone and oak Hill Country. The house is well equipped with Le Creuset pans, Grohe fixtures, fine linens, and designer bathrooms overlooking Lake Austin amidst a series of rock terraces. Every room has extravagant lake views through huge picture windows overlooking the decks and the lake. Two grandparents, two parents, and two grandchildren were very comfortable swimming, relaxing on the screened porch and open decks, and in the

swimming area by the boathouse.

Lovely Serene Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

The home and property is quite lovely and serene. The rooms were spacious with plenty of closet space and hangers. The kitchen and various eating areas made hosting a group very easy and comfortable. My only minor criticism was trying to manage to have all the towels washed and dried before we left. With people taking showers in the morning, then packing and cleaning out the refrigerator, it was almost impossible to manage to get everything done before we left. Other than that, the home is a great place for a group to gather and relax. Watching life on the lake is really a treat!

Great family place for UT Graduation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our long weekend at this property when we came to town from California for our son's UT graduation. Three generations of us stayed there -- all enjoyed it immensely! Gorgeous views, comfortable furniture and beds, plenty of dishes, fridge space and a DVD collection. We loved the screened in porch -- great place to watch the rain (yes, it rained several times, and we still had a great time!) We rented a wake boarding boat from a local company and enjoyed two afternoons of fun picking up and dropping off the crew at the dock. So peaceful out there -- they even had yoga mats, which I took down to the dock and did some morning practice over the water. So serene! Simply fantastic. Great neighborhood for talking walks also -- and we really loved visiting the Ski Shores Cafe nearby (where they will make a to-go-lunch for you when boating). Just bummed we didn't get to try the hammock on the giant deck or the fire pit -- it never got dry enough! Hoping to return someday! This was a memory for a lifetime -- perfect way to end our son's UT Chapter of Life!
