Overview

Steiner Ranch Neighborhood Association House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 8, Boat Dock, Hot Tub, Huge Trees and Yard

Lake Austin waterfront is a great place to escape all year around. Lake Austin Retreat offers a beautiful Mexican style waterfront property with a boat dock, huge decks and a hot tub situated on a secluded bend of Lake Austin just 20 miles from downtown Austin. Relax, unwind, swim, canoe, kayak, bird-watch, fish, or enjoy a spa-treatment at nearby Lake Austin Spa. The house accommodates 8 guests, and the spacious back yard offers an abundance of outdoor space for socializing, BBQ'n, playing or enjoying quiet hammock-time. Bring your boat and ski (boats can be moored at the dock but no boat lift is available), or lounge by the water's edge and drink in the view of the Golden Cheeked-Warbler habitat directly across the lake. You will love taking advantage of the most peaceful stretch of Lake Austin. Mornings are not to be missed. Grab your coffee or tea and watch the morning fog pull back revealing a glass-like surface that mirrors the rolling hills above. Just 35 Miles from the new F-1 Track in Austin, 20 miles from SXSW and ACL Festival.

About Rachel Bailey

I moved to Austin in 1992 and found the city where I will live for the rest of my life. I purchased this house in 1995 so I could water ski before work and found so much more than just a place to live. I found that the lake living lifestyle gave me activities and tranquility that add so much to my quality of life. My two daughters and I love to stay at our lake house when guests are not there as a mini-vacation from hustle and bustle of our lives in central Austin

Rachel Bailey purchased this house in 1995

Why Rachel Bailey chose Austin

My love of being on the water and waterskiing before work in the morning drove me to purchase this wonderful house on Lake Austin in 1995. I lived in the house full-time until 1999, when I moved to central Austin to be closer to work.

What makes this house unique

The area across the lake from the house is a Golden Cheeked Warbler Habitat so it is completely undeveloped. The view from the 600 sf deck on top of the boat dock is just beautiful with an undeveloped 'mountain' (by Austin standards) instead of houses. Evenings and early mornings on the deck are particularly magical.

GLAD YOU'RE BACK

  • 5 of 5

SSSOOOO glad to see house available again! Last year we couldn't find it and were very disappointed. Almost called you at home to complain you'd taken "OUR" house off the market (how dare you!). Survived a family vacation this year(20+) so will treat ourselves to your/our house next summer. OH YES, our last visit cost us $40,000 ... came home and remodeled our bathroom so we could have a shower like yours! See you soon.

Quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to get away from it all, while still being close to everything. Rented this property for a guys fishing trip, and enjoyed every second of it. Sunrise from the large deck over the boat dock is worth getting up early for. This house had everything we required and more. Next time we come to Austin, we hope to be able to stay here again.

Perfect for a lake front getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything we could ask for and more! From arrival to departure, we were overwhelmed from the beauty of this place. The carport was right by the entrance to the kitchen, which made for easy unpacking and packing. The keyless entry is very convenient. The house is stocked with every we needed for our stay. Don't forget to take a bag of ice. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill, hanging on the deck and relaxing in the hot tub both nights! The backyard is breath taking. From the soft, green grass that we were able to play frisbee bare foot, the swings hanging from trees, the water floats, the kayaks, canoe, and fishing gear!! We caught fish right from the dock! We spent most of our time (when not in the water) outside on the two story dock. We napped on the hammock and enjoyed lounging in the shade on both levels of the dock all day! We rented a boat, went skiing and wake boarding and had no issue driving the boat right up to the dock. We were blown away with everything that this house had to offer! We live in Austin and can not wait to go back!

Great Lake getaway

  • 4 of 5

We got there on Friday and spent the weekend. The house was awesome for what we needed. We hung out by the lake on the deck and rented a boat for a night to go out on the lake. If you are looking for a place to go for a long weekend or a relaxing stay this is it!!!! Hot tub was awesome too!
