Looks better than the pictures!

  • 3 of 5

The place was great! We didn't have any reason to call the owner. We weren't there to go the gym but had we wanted to we couldn't. We couldn't find the key card anywhere and the door code alone wouldn't work. The place in itself was great! The balcony had amazing views, the condo was clean, kitchen had all we needed, and the bed was comfy! A few downsides: When we arrived around 9-10pm, the code provided didn't work to get us in the community. Luckily, a lady was working the gate, confirmed our registration, provided us with the new code and let us in. The biggest downfall to this beautiful property is the entire outside and garage area smelt like a rotting egg. Overall, a few hick-ups but we had a good stay. We would visit again if that smell would disappear but probably not anytime soon.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay, I wish you would have called me. There is no card for the fitness center. Those were disconnected a few years ago. The same code as the front gate lets you in the fitness center/ gym area.They are all wired together. The Island Staff changes the code monthly. Unfortunately they do not give us the codes too far in advance and I think you have downloaded the code for August. That is why we recommend that you check the check- in information on the HomeAway app 1-2 weeks before arrival. By then I have the new code on the Check -in Information section. Or you can call me. I want your stay to be as seamless and enjoyable as possible.

Enjoyable, relaxing stay with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The property is a quiet getaway. The person at the gate was so helpful and nice. The condo itself was clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. I would recommend this condo for a peaceful and relaxing get away. It is very close to the elevator, stairs and bistro.

Overall a nice place. Great Lake view.

  • 4 of 5

The unit is nice for the price. They did forget to supply us with soap to shower with. The unit is one away from the restaurant but wasn't too noisy. The complex itself had a strong odor that I can't identify. The exercise room needed a code along with a card key that was not provided. We did have a nice weekend but Lago Vista is relatively far things from things to do and places to eat.

Nice but needs some tlc

  • 2 of 5

Pets are not allowed however the entire unit smelled horrible like animal feces and urine.

Fan on balcony would not work.

Lamps in room and living room would not work.

Coffee pot and coffee was provided, but no coffee filters.

2 extra pillows were in the closet, but no extra blankets.

Master bed was a foot off the floor, very low to the ground.

I tried calling the owner upon arrival around 9:30pm or 10pm on a Friday night about the lamps but had to leave a voicemail. I received no call back, but did get a text the next morning to which I replied to and never received another text back throughout the entire wknd.

Other than those cons I loved the location, 2nd floor close to the elevator. The view was beautiful of course, and the balcony was relaxing. The decor was minimal but decent.

Owner's Response: Definitely Not a typical experience for our guests. Please look at our other reviews. While the patio ceiling fan was not working. We immediately replaced with a new on as soon as we found out. The sheets for the sleeper sofa were in the bottom drawer of the dresser with a blanket. The drawer is labeled on the outside "Sleeper Sofa Items" The lamps are controlled by the second light switch on the wall and the lamp switch itself. Just in case we keep spares in the cabinet above the Fridge. The coffee filters were above the microwave in the cabinet next to the coffee maker. We never allow or allowed pets. Not sure what odors you experienced. Guests before and immediately after had no complaints and we asked. Being paranoid we had neighbors come in and check also. Just to be safe we had the carpet professionally cleaned 2 guests later. (at the first vacancy ) Even the cleaning company said they noticed no odors. I did miss the call at 930 pm. After responding back by text the next morning ( in case guest was sleeping in I did not call ) the response I received seemed like the guest figured the lights out. It is always our intention to ensure that our guests have a great stay. I have called repeatedly since and left numerous messages.

5 Star Value for the Price!

  • 4 of 5

The only reason I did not give this 5 Stars is because the condo is not a 5 Star Condo but for the price it was a 5 Star Deal. The condo was nice, well equipped and clean. The balcony was big for a 1 bedroom condo and the view of the lake was excellent. The Island is directly across from Pace Bend Park so we were looking at trees and cliffs, not houses.

The check-in process was automated and easy. The 1 phone call I made to the owner was answered by the owner and he answered all my questions which primarily had to do with launching our boat and slip rental. If you plan on bringing a boat you need to research before hand as slip rental and launch ramps were somewhat limited due to holiday and lake level.

Overall experience - Excellent!

Paul was very accommodating to our schedule. Great view from the large balcony and the food at the restaurant on-site was delicious. We plan to come again. Thanks!
