Summer getaway

  • 3 of 5

I have stayed in some great properties through VRBO and this is another very nice property. The view of Lake Travis is awesome and the house was basically clean and spacious! With that being said, there were some issues:

1. I have a 24 ft boat and the trailer access to the property is very very narrow, almost impossible to access with a 24 ft trailer. Would have been nice to know, before we got there.

2. When we got there, the lights in the kitchen didn’t work. We were able to reset a breaker outside to resolve.

3. None of the electrical outlets in the kitchen worked, we didn’t realize this until we tried to make coffee the first morning. An electrical technician came out and fixed the problem…

4. There are only five coffee cups. We had seven coffee drinkers !

5. Six forks, had to use plastic !

6. We had to bring our own ice. No ice maker ! This is a pain, and should be fixed !

7. When we arrived washer and dryer full of linens, we had to unload in order to use.

8. Oven was extremely dirty and is a safety issue.

9. Daddy long leg spiders were an issue in the lower bedroom & bathroom. Probably killed 20 ! Freaked my wife out, she would not sleep in there !

10. Wireless network is a joke, very low signal strength, not usable.

11. Almost all outside speakers were blown, basically unusable.

12. The lower deck was basically an area where junk was stored, we didn't use it.

I didn’t expect everything to be perfect, but for the money we spent, definitely below my expectations.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeff, Thank you for staying at our vacation home. We are sorry issues came up during your stay. This was truly not our intention. We really appreciate your feedback so that we can make things right for our future guests. I would like to take this opportunity to comment on your concerns… 1. Re: Trailer access to the property-You are right! I should have communicated better the details regarding the entrance leading to the home. Because we have had guests with various vehicle sizes get through in the past, we did not think you would have a problem. I am so sorry for this. 2. Re: Kitchen electrical issues: It is unfortunate that this happened during your stay but I assure you that it has not happened before. Our maintenance staff has repaired the issue and will keep an eye on this. 3. Re: Forks, coffee cups- We have restocked to ensure there is plenty to go around for future guests. 4. Re: Ice Maker- You are correct. There is no ice maker. I have added ice trays to make this easier for future guests. 5. Re: Linens, oven and deck- Our cleaning staff has been advised of these issues and have assured us this will not happen again. 6. Daddy Long Legs- Because we are close to the lake, these little critters are always nearby. However, we definitely don’t want them in our home. We are looking into measures to make sure the room is clear of them. 7. Re: Wireless Network and speakers: We were not aware of these issues and thank you for bringing it to our attention. We are having someone come out to check our wireless network to make sure it is reliable for our guests. We are also having someone inspect and repair our speakers. Again, we thank you for your feedback and apologize if any of these issues caused your stay to be less than desirable. We hope you will consider staying with us again. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or additional comments. Sincerely, Erika

Amazing January Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Although it was brisk, and at times breezy, that did not stop us from enjoying everything this property has to offer. Fish were caught, the boys jumped off the high dock, the fire pit provided warmth for those chilly nights under the stars. The home was fresh, clean, spacious, and very comfortable! We had an excellent weekend! Would love to come back anytime of the year.

Wonderful Family Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our three teenagers away for a weekend trip and we had a great time at the Lakehouse. The house is beautiful and the beds are very comfortable! The decks are great and we watched the sunset and the sunrise, the grounds are manicured and their are beautiful Texas flowers around the property. We played a great game of pool in the game room and we had a great swim! The water is cold and deep so we had a great time diving off the boat dock. The kitchen is beautiful and we had wonderful meals throughout the weekend. We look forward to going again in the future, it is really peaceful and we made some great family memories.

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we got there to the time we left it was the perfect Staycation!! The property manager was very friendly and helpfully with all our question. The property is well taken care off and has all you need for your home away from home. I loved the lay out of the home. I even noticed the decorations they placed in having the home ready that gives it that perfect little touch. My family had a blast swimming in the lake, playing pool and pin pong. My favorite was just seating out on the deck enjoining the beautiful view. Over all it was good treat for my family just before school starts. Highly recommend this place!!!!!

Great Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house over the weekend. Easily accommodated the 6 of us. House was clean and well stocked with all the necessities. Amazing views of Lake Travis. Brought our own boat and the dock worked out perfect. Loved the game room with the pool table and ping pong table. We had an amazing time. Our dog was welcome and he loved it! Once we got our food we never had to leave the house! Thank you for the hospitality!
