In addition enjoy hiking trails, tennis, city park with beach, swimming, and picnic area.

After a day on the lake or 18 holes of golf, enjoy sitting on the wrap-around front porch while viewing the beautiful sunset. Then relax on the large patio area surrounding the pool. There is plenty of room to sun as well as covered area to get into the shade. Enjoy cooking out with choice of large smoker or smaller grill. The back yard is large, fenced, and private. A great place for families or couples to relax, unwind, and enjoy. Many have found they come back for repeat visits to this home.

Remember also the many unique restaurants in Austin and along Lake Travis. Don't miss the new Hill Country mall just 10 min. away. Day trips might include Austin and visiting the capital, San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos. and Johnson City.

Why Walt Cook chose Lake Travis

After falling in love with Texas Hill Country and Lake Travis we purchased our home

in 1993. It is our second home and we maintain, manage, and shower it with TLC.

We have many return guests and have made great friends with many renters over the

years. Located in a quiet residential area you feel peace and quiet while still

being just minutes away from great restaurants, shopping, golf, hiking,tennis, and all activities of the beautiful lake

What makes this house unique

About one mile from marina. Some really interesting restaurants in the area. Lots of shopping nearby.

Perfect Lakeway Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a week long wonderful stay here in Lakeway, TX with our daughter & grand daughter. The house was perfect for us & we felt right at home & very relaxed the whole time. It is in a great location for us since my brother & sister-in-law live only a few miles away. It is close to Lake Travis, many golf courses, shopping & restaurants. Everything needed is included in the house for a fun, relaxing vacation. Being from Pennsylvania I really enjoyed sitting by the pool in the back yard & enjoying the mild weather. We plan to rent here again in the future.

Pool House

  • 5 of 5

This family home fit our every criteria. The pool was the perfect size for the little ones what were with us. The neighborhood was great for walking. There was plenty of room for our two families to stretch out. The kitchen was full of all necessities and the barbecues were perfect for our needs. I would recommend this house for a family that just wants to get away and relax.

Great Lakeway Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location right on the hiking trail that runs throughout Lakeway, and close to everything. House has lots of room and is well equipped, and the kitchen is plenty big enough for our combined family gatherings. We've stayed here several times, and are already looking forward to getting back for another Hill Country vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes the hiking trail seems to be a favorite for many and a great addition to Lakeway. We met your family many years ago and it has been fun hearing from you during the years. We are glad the house works well for you on your visits to Austin and we look forward to your visiting again. Thank you for your rentals. Marilyn & Walt

Excellent Lakeway Home

  • 5 of 5

This marks the 7th time we have rented this home. The property is always sparkling-clean, well maintained, and the owners a delight. The home is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood within ten minutes of all necessary shopping and restaurants. We have and continue to recommend this property to family and friends. Lake Travis (and an excellent restaurant) and The World of Tennis are five minutes away from the backdoor. We enjoy walking on a maintained trail that passes nearby.

Great Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented this house many times over the years, and have always found it to be in good condition, well provisioned and very clean. We've been very happy with the location as it is close enough for day trips to Austin, Wimberley, Fredricksburg and many other interesting hill country destinations. The pool has always been clean, and we have spent many hours in the backyard with kids and grandkids. The floor plan of the house is open, and spacious for everyone to be in the kitchen at the same time...playing games, watching TV. We look forward to the next time we will visit Lakeway and stay at our favorite hill country home.

Owner's Response: It has been fun, through the years, hearing about your family's activities while visiting our home. Wish we had kept track of how many times you have visited. Know several grandchildren have been added during that time. We do thank you for your kind words regarding the house and for the many visits you have made. We look forward to your coming again.
