Expectations Exceeded

  • 5 of 5

Each quarter I organize a retreat for a group of business owners in our early 30s. We go to a new place, stay together in a house, find fun local experiences, and talk about our businesses.

Our stay here was one of the smoothest we've experienced. Every single detail has been thought about and addressed by the owners. Every question we had was met with a timely answer - and a better answer than we were expecting!

The property manager proactively reached out with a bunch of information we were looking for -- recommended chefs, local restaurants, activities, etc. that made our planning so much easier.

The home is beautiful and the team will make sure you have everything you need for a great stay.

Christmas 2015

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this beautiful home. From the minute we entered the house, complete with a Christmas tree and holiday decorations, We knew we made a wonderful choice. Our family last visited this house in 2012 and we weren't disappointed. Everything was perfection! Our Property Mgr, Dolly was there to greet us, go over everything the house had to offer, answer any further questions we had and kept in touch with us during our visit. Dolly's interest to our needs and everything the house has to offer were a plus.The one small downside, grocery stores are 30 minutes away.

Perfect weekend for three families with kids.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time on Lake Travis and we stayed with two other families (6 adults and 8 kids). The house was amazing from when we first opened the door and found the fireplaces lit and great music playing. The kitchen had everything imaginable and the rooms went well beyond what you would get, even in a nicer hotel. The lake was very low but we still had no trouble renting a pontoon boat and jet ski; making use of the private dock. The weather for us was perfect, but with rain I think we still would have had a great time because of the very large covered patio, heated pool, and media room. We have not found another place like this (of similar size) in Texas.
