Wonderful 16th birthday for my son!

  • 5 of 5

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!

It was worth it. The house had enough room for everyone.

  • 4 of 5

It's a great place if you just want to relax. The swimming pool, gym and private park are all very nice. The pool and gym are within walking distance. It's a little far to the grocery store and all the main visiting sites around the area. There's a grocery store near by but it's small and expensive. So, just come prepared and you'll have a great time. The back porch view of the lake it's good. We would recommend it.

We truly enjoyed it!

The house was great! We stayed a month and wish we could have stayed longer. It truly was a home away from home. We will be recommending it to our friends and family.
