Point Venture Retreat is a vacation rental property located on Lake Travis, in Point Venture, Texas, 20 miles west of Austin, in the Heart of the Texas Hill Country.
Our renovated and redecorated town-home (new kitchen, beds, counter tops, Spanish tile, bamboo floors, and tiled showers) has two bedrooms, a loft, two full baths and 350 square feet of decks on 2 levels. It can sleep 8 with all the comforts of home. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, the downstairs bedroom has a queen, and the loft has a queen size futon. There is also a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room.
Normally, from Point Venture Retreat you will have private access to the lake with your own swim dock, and will enjoy beautiful views of the lake while relaxing on the 2 levels of decks. Currently, our swim dock is not floating due to the lack of heavy rain. However, when the water is low, there is still a beautiful view and so much fun to be had! There is water access from the park which is a beautiful walk or a very short drive away. The wood burning fireplace is a welcome attraction during the colder, winter months. Private driveway parking is provided for up to 4 vehicles and/or boat trailers.
Marina and Floating Restaurant: The Point Venture Marina, located at the mouth of our cove, provides a fuel dock, a store, and The Gnarly Gar (formerly Shades Cafe) floating restaurant. There are watercraft rentals located up the lake in Lago Vista. The Gnarly restaurant is open year round.
Welcome: We hope you enjoy our lakeside town home as much as we do! When you arrive, relax and make yourself at home at Point Venture Retreat. It is a privilege to share this with you, our friends, and we would love to continue our rental program for years to come. We realize that it's not a 'plush' and 'fancy' resort hotel, but it's very special to us. We ask that you would respect and treat Point Venture Retreat as if it were yours.

Wonderful 16th birthday for my son!
For my son's 16th birthday all he wanted to do was wake board. So we rented this house for 4 days and had a blast. The house is wonderfully located close to the pool, easy boating access and super fun jumping off the pier in the cove. Everyone loved this trip! The house is very spacious and clean. Beautiful view of the lake. Best part of it all is that we live in Austin so it was a short drive to and from our house. We had a fantastic time! We will certainly be back!
We are so happy you had a good trip! It's such a fun spot and would love for you to come again. Have a great summer!
Very nice and well equipped. The entire family loved it. Great for our weekend getaway.
Beautiful home with great views
The town home is very cute with nice views and access to the lake. We were there off season so didn't get to enjoy the lake and pool. The only con is it's far from restaurants and grocery stores, the nearest town that has many options is about 30 minutes away.
Loved the stay
This is a beautiful house with almost everything you need in a vacation home. I would like to mention that the other bedroom has mentioned double bed and I thought it’s just a double bed but it is a double bunker bed and a family with 2 kids was able to sleep in there. Would definitely recommend it for small group vacations.
Cute condo. The only concerns were the more than spotty internet connection resulting in inability to watch tv and no hairdryer on property. Otherwise the accommodation was fine.
We had a great time. We will be back.
