Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family drove from all over the country to meet at Lake Travis for our annual vacation. With our busy lives, we usually only see each other once a year so this trip is very important to us. With the 5 bedrooms and bathrooms, this home was perfect for our large family. During the day, we played on Lake Travis, and during the evening we gathered together to shoot pool and hang out in the game room. Absolutely perfect. When it was time to go to bed, we all had comfortable and private space to sleep! In the morning, the bathrooms were so handy for everyone getting ready. We had heard the horror stories of how bad Lake Travis was because of the drought, but we were able to launch a boat a few minutes away and had a great time skiing, swimming and tubing. The best part was there were not very many people on the lake--perfect time for our vacation!! We usually try to go somewhere different, but we have already decided to come back to this home next year!!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The property certainly met our needs and the location was great. It would be great to see what the house and property would look like if it were maintained really well, but given the status of the ownership, we were pleasantly surprised.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

It is very difficult to find a property that has enough beds for a group of people that do not want to share. (A group of moms with their children.) This home was perfect. We each had our own queen bed. Although it is not a high end property (which is obvious with the great price), it really was perfect for our needs and had everything we needed. We were pleasantly surprised after we had read the one bad review. We are not sure what they expected, but for the price, this home is great. Fabulous views and lots of room. We enjoyed playing pool, which we could do without disturbing the children who were asleep upstairs. We will come back.

Great home for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation at this home. It was exactly what we wanted. It has the best location on Lake Travis with beautiful sunsets and easy access to the water. Unlike many homes we have stayed at, we could just walk down to the boat dock without any stairs! We had enough beds, bedrooms and bathrooms to keep everyone happy. The boys stayed in one bunk room and the girls stayed in the other which left the bedrooms to all of the parents. Perfect situation!

Poor shape for the price

  • 2 of 5

The yard is completely trashed. Weeds are everywhere, trash in the yard, spider webs and dirt all over the outside of the house. Inside the house is moderately furtished about like a motel6. The pool table is beyond repair with pockets falling out of the table. The fose ball table handles falling off. The kids couldn't connect an Xbox because the TV inputs were locked out with a code.

Definitely not worth the price considering the very remote location and what you get.

Lots of room ... needs a little TLC

  • 3 of 5

This home has lots of space for a large group. We loved the views, the huge porches, the big screen TVs, and game tables. The house/amenities are definitely "worn" and in need of some maintenance, but nothing that prevented us from having a good time.
