Leander Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

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.

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. 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 stay!!

  • 3 of 5

Our stay at this location was great. There were 7 of us and we were all comfortable. The loft area is very nice but only for kids, my daughter loved it. The view was nice from the double decks. The kids enjoyed feeding the deers right outside your door. The only issue we did not care for was the path to the swimming dock. There is no steps or railing to the lake. It was very unsafe even if you slipped there was nothing to grab onto. Most of the time we just stayed away from it because I was worried about the kids getting hurt. Would we stay at this location again yes only if improvements were made for the walkway to the lake. Other than that, we had a great time.

Nice condo, quiet neighborhood but...

  • 3 of 5

The owner was great at communicating and answering our questions. The condo is in a nice and quiet location! We loved walking out and seeing so many deer roaming around the condos, my boys favorite thing about our trip. The lake was full and easy to access, the amenities were also very nice. I'm giving a 3 star review because the condo could have been cleaner. We found several bugs, chased a roach around and even found a lizard in the kitchen, the main part that seemed really dirty was the carpet leading down the stairs and into the bedroom. Cleaning was somewhat of a disappointment especially since we were traveling with small children, try telling boys they can't wrestle and plaster their faces in a dirty carpet ha! That being said, I understand it's a rental and summers and in high demand so maybe they just didn't leave enough cleaning time in between rentals. Overall we enjoyed our stay :)

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We were in Point Venture for a family reunion. The home we stayed in happened to be next door to the one my brother and his family were staying in. The home was just as we expected it to be and filled our need very well.

house didn't quite accommodate as promised

  • 2 of 5

First of all we were told we could check in anytime we wanted then when I called, texted and emailed the owner, Andrea, she would not respond, as we needed the access code to get inside. This was for a bride and 5 maids. I finally reached her husband around 2:30 and he gave me the code to get in. Also, the accommodations were alittle tight as far as sleeping arrangements go since the loft has a staircase that is almost completely vertical and only a young person could get up there. All in all, it was an ok place but I don't think I would use it again.

Owner's Response: Wow. This is surprising to hear. After all of the extra things I did to try to accommodate your wedding party that were well beyond a normal rental. I spent a lot of time talking to your wedding consultant trying to reserve the clubhouse for you only to find out after all of my time that your wedding party already had it reserved through someone else. You said in your email (that you sent around 9am) that you forgot the information that we sent you (electronically by the way) at home. As a teacher, I can not respond to email right away. Yes, we did allow you to check in any time that day, which is not the norm. My husband tried to call you several times and there was no answer. The description of the home is complete on Homeaway, and there are many pictures of the home. Your wedding party was very disorganized and the communication was very, very poor. I am proud of the way I handled your situation and felt I did a lot to try to make your wedding weekend special. It's too bad you see it in a different way.
