Montina Beach is one of a few properties on Lake Travis with a gradual slope to the water. The park like setting from the beach area has been described by a real estate appraiser as the 'FINEST LAND on Lake Travis.' The view looks out across one of the largest areas of the lake with some of the largest hills in the Texas Hill Country as the backdrop. You will find this lake front area much more scenic than anything in Lakeway due to the larger lake area and the bigger hills; and much closer to town/amenities than Briarcliff or Lago Vista.
The beach area is large and covered mostly with grass. There is a large rock bon fire pit for those special evenings with friends. Yes, wood is supplied complimentary. There is also a grass volleyball court for your energetic gatherings with friends.
The property is located on the highly desirable south shore of Lake Travis, close to Austin's vibrant lifestyle and near all the amenities you desire from the finest in shopping at the new Hill Country Galleria and Lakeline Mall to great restaurants including Hudson's on the Bend, Rocco's, The Grove, Steiner Ranch Steak House, The Oasis, Mesa Rosa and Hill Country Pasta House. There are six exceptional golf courses within ten minutes drive. The house is located on approximately six acres with another house that the owners live in.
Austin's legendary night life must certainly be experienced if you have never been to downtown Austin at night. The house is a great place to stay with friends when in town to watch the exceptional athletic programs of the University of Texas Longhorns. It is about a 25 minute drive to downtown or the UT campus.
Boat and jet ski rentals are available nearby; or launch your own at a nearby marina and park it at the dock on premises. Spend a day wakeboarding, water skiing or parasailing. Yes, they will pick you up right on your boat dock to go parasailing! If you are young enough in spirit, you may also want to venture into Devil's Cove for one of America's biggest parties every summer weekend - it is a five minute boat ride away.
The house has a wonderful open design. The kitchen, living room, breakfast area and dining room are all combined in a very large area without walls that makes for a great social gathering point. There are two outdoor living areas for your enjoyment. One bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath. The second master bedroom has a queen bed and also a private bath and must be accessed either through its own private entrance from the outside or by going through the third smaller bedroom. The small bedroom has a full size bed and a pull-out twin bed that recesses under the full size bed. The smaller third bedroom has access to a third, common area bathroom. A comfortable futon is located in an area of the great room and a twin bed sleeper sofa is also available in the living area. All bedrooms have televisions.
Please note that photos were taken with the lake level at a more normal level and the lake levels can fluctuate from drought to floods. Please ask the owner if you want to know the relative lake level.
Phyllis Lacey purchased this house in 1996
You will love the vast wide open feel of the beach with its absolutely spectacular view, which is framed by some of the largest hills in the Texas Hill Country.
The house is located on Lake Travis but close enough to downtown Austin, the University of Texas and the many lake area activities to make it convenient to nightlife and UT sports and places such as The Oasis or the Hill Country Galleria. Choose a peaceful evening under the stars or all the action you want at the places above.
The property was fabulous. We enjoyed the beach area and the fire on the beach at night was truly special. It was our second visit to Montina Beach-we will be back again! Thanks for the memories!
Just got back from a weekend at Montina Beach House. It was lovely! I was there with friends for a family wedding. It was a great location and the house was perfect. Very spacious and clean. The accomodations were perfect for us. We barbequed and enjoyed the Lake with a boat. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us. We would love to come again sometime in the future.
The home is older but nicely updated. The lot is narrow and very long with the owners very large home right in front of the view to the lake. We brought a 22' wakeboard boat which the owners asked and knew of. The swim dock is the designated area for guests boats with no cover(shade)or cleats to tie up to. The swim dock had 2 1/2 feet of water when we arrived according to my depth finder and the lake was full during our stay. A few days later the owner extended the swim dock out a little further to 4 feet. I would not recommend this rental for guests with boats. It is the number one reason we came to stay and I was always checking and worried about the boat because it isn't protected from large waves from a very busy lake. Our boat had some damage during our stay tied up at the dock :(
We stayed here last weekend and it was great! The house is beautiful and the property is amazing. I docked my 21ft Skiboat on their dock with no problems. It was pretty windy and there are no cleats so take plenty of fenders and some rope. You can tie off to a few places on the dock. It's only 4-5ft deep off the dock but you can anchor about 40 ft off the dock for bigger boats.
House is stocked with the important things like dishes and other essential items.
I would stay here again in a heart beat! Thank you for the great memory!
Montina Beach is a must stay if you are ever in the Austin area and want to be close to the Lake. Beautiful property with direct access to the lake and a marina to rent a boat! My buddies and I had a blast over the weekend and we will definitely plan on coming back in the future. Everything in the house was immaculate and well stocked so we didn't have to worry about anything from towels, to pots and pans, and utensils. Phyllis is also super sweet and very accommodating. You can't go wrong!
We stayed at the house to attend my daughters wedding. Had a small group at the house for supper and thoroughly enjoyed the house, plenty of room to have a small get together. Would love to come back when we have time to enjoy the dock and the lake. The open layout and the grounds fit our needs perfectly.
The property was a very nice direct short walk to the water. Beautiful bend in the lake and nice to have your own private boat dock with marinas 2 minute boat ride away. The house was well stocked with everything you need to cook/serve food. Very clean property and well manicured lawn. Loved staying here with my two toddlers and parents. Owners very responsive, helpful, kind.
The property is located on the highly desirable south shore of Lake Travis, close to Austin's vibrant lifestyle and near all the amenities you desire. From the finest in shopping at the new Hill Country Galleria and Lakeline Mall to great restaurants including Hudson's on the Bend, Rocco's and Hill Country Pasta House.
There are six exceptional golf courses within ten minutes drive. The home is about one mile from the world famous Carlos N' Charlies and several other waterfront restaurants are within minutes by boat. There is nothing like a sunset boat cruise and dinner at a waterfront restaurant, then a leisurely moon light boat cruise back home.
25 Minutes from Downtown Austin.
