Highland Lake Estates Condo Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront One Bedrm Condo with Lake & Pool views at Resort with all amenities

Visiting The Island on Lake Travis is like a trip to a Mediterranean village. Beautiful arches, walkways, and gardens greet you as you drive from the mainland onto the Island. You will get a sense of serenity as you realize you've come to a special place where you can leave your cares behind and enjoy some time in this luxurious place that is so close, yet seems so far.

As you enter your beautifully decorated suite, you will will find yourself surrounded by luxury.

Our suites feature:

- a fully appointed kitchen with all utensils and cookware

- a beautifully furnished and decorated suite

- a large LCD TV in the living and bedroom areas

- a beautifully decorated bedroom with original artwork.

- Best of all is the close view of Lake Travis from your very private balcony. Some of our guests have compared the view from our suite to that of a cruise ship.

Enjoy a refreshing dip in one of our three pools. Or enjoy a relaxing soak in one of the hot tubs. If you prefer, you can grill a steak on one of the charcoal grills. Of course, if you don't feel like cooking, there are several excellent restaurants in the area that are unique to Lago Vista and the north shore of Lake Travis.

Treat yourself to a vacation with us - a weekend or a week, if you prefer! The memories you make will last long after you return home.

Two day minimum stay - 3 days on holiday weekends. Check in 3 PM, Check out 11 AM.

A great place, a great view and a great place to relax!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Island very much. Our room was beautiful and had had everything we needed was so relaxing. We had a great balcony where we enjoyed our coffee in the mornings. The lake views are awesome and the sunsets were beautiful in the evening. It was great to watch people boating and fishing but yet it was very quiet at night..just what we needed. Melinda is very good to reply to any questions or needs you may have and was very helpful in answering questions we had before we came.

The only suggestions we might have for the room is to include a box of Kleenex and extra toilet paper when people are staying a week. Also a hand towels in the kitchen would be nice.

The only negative for the property was the septic smell.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the great condo & view!! Thank you for the compliment because we try to make it a great experience. The housekeeper always leaves two rolls of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels regardless of how long a guest is staying since this is a home rental, rather than a hotel that cleans daily. Guests bring groceries and supplies with them especially if they're staying awhile. She normally leaves a red hand towel hanging across the stove handle so I'm not sure what happened there. We've never supplied face tissues and most of the other rentals don't either but we will consider your suggestion. Thank you again for your review and please come back soon!

Pleasantly Surprised!

On a last minute trip to Lake Travis, I came across this listing. I don't usually like to stay in large, condominium complexes as I find them crowded and noisy. However, the Island at Lake Travis was perfect! It was quiet and not crowded at all. The views from this unit is amazing. I felt calm and relaxed simply sitting out on the balcony. The unit is furnished nicely and located in a quiet spot. We plan on returning and staying even longer.

Place was perfect for my family and I. Room and view were beautiful. Indoor pool helped. The outdoor pool was still a little too cold. Hot tubs were clean and at the perfect temperature. We will definitely return.

What a wonderful month we had in this delightful condo. The condo itself is well decorated and had everything we needed. The entire property is beautiful and well kept up. The views in this area are just awesome. The condo overlooks the lake and we enjoyed sitting on the patio watching the sunsets. An extra bonus is a little group of deer that come to the island every evening. The outside pools were chilly but we used the hot tubs almost every night. We enjoyed a number of day trips taking in the beautiful views in this area. Cedar Park has lots of shopping. We also took the Austin Steam train ride from there.

Enjoyed it again

  • 5 of 5

We stayed earlier this year and enjoyed it enough to come back. Condo is a great size for 2 people with a wonderful view of Lake Travis and colorful sunsets. Kitchen is equipped so you can cook your meals. In-door / out-door pools and hot tubs allow you to use them year-round. Residents are very friendly and are quick to answer any questions. Melinda was easy to work with and a great source of information about the area. We will return again next year.
