Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

A house with so many things to do: sun-bathe on Lake Travis all day, upstairs deck with outdoor speakers to enjoy music and the sun and beautiful view of the lake, downstairs covered deck to get out of the sun, enjoy the downtown Austin night life or take a drive out to the Hill Country. Several Restaurants on the lake including Carlos and Charlies directly across the lake from this house, Cafe Blue within half a mile of the home by car or boat, the famous Oasis Restaurant is a short 10 minute drive. Waterfront is beautiful with easy access to water and great swimming right off the dock. Fishing off the dock is good for perch and catfish. The view is breathtaking and one of the best on the lake.

Volente is a short 25 mile drive from Austin Bergstrom Airport. This location is one of the most convenient to Austin on Lake Travis.

Volente Water Park is 2 miles away.

Waterfront boat dock can be used for swimming, fishing, or dock your boat. The dock has a 20 x 30 sitting area and two vacant boat slips. The dock is covered and in excellent condition.

The house was fantastic for a Golf weekend

The house is an amazing secluded cove overlooking the lake. The bedrooms were clean and spacious so as soon as we arrived we could relax and enjoy are stay.

Great family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The property was well kept and clean. The beds were comfortable but there was only 1 queen so if there are couples traveling together the other 2 double beds made the sleeping arrangements a small challenge. The description of the property probably disclosed that but I didn't realize that ahead of time. Other than that I would highly recommend the property and I would re-book.

Good could be wonderful with a few small changes

  • 4 of 5

We drove up and were initially wowed with the property until we could not get in. We realized the "code" we received on the email with all the instructions for the property was only a code for the wifi. We stood outside for half an hour trying to reach the property manager for a code to get into the house. Once in, the home was great. Very comfortable upgrades and furnishings. Would be nice if there were 2 baths upstairs. I was fine with it, but my mother-in-law was not too pleased. Kids mostly used the downstairs bedroom, but were scared to sleep downstairs by themselves as it is a separate enclosure from the rest of the house. Would be nice for 2 couples, but not a whole family who wants to stick together (just fyi). On the bright side, I loved that the home was off the beaten path and was so peaceful and beautiful. Nature everywhere and the view was spectacular.

Pros: linens were clean and comfortable/nice down comforters

view - awesome

decks-awesome

SUP board-fun!

separate "casita" if needed

washer/dryer came in handy

game room - kids loved it

wooded area - nice for walks/nature lovers-lots of bunnies!

located on cove of lake, great for swimming and close to boat rentals/water park

cons: coffee pot - PLEASE replace! it is on its last leg!

pillows-flat! had to buy our own in town and bring back

game room in not air conditioned-didn't bother me, but my some people in my family complained...

2nd bath - must walk outside, downstairs - not good for rainy days or elderly people/young children

dock-has separated from land and you must walk through the water and then back up metal ramp to get on - not so great- please correct this for your guests so we may enjoy the dock for fishing/swimming

lack of towels-there are not too many towels in the house (6-8 at most) and we felt like we were using the good bath towels for the lake-maybe some beach towels would be nice.

property manager-please be sure to include the key code on your welcome letter to renters-it was very frustrating not to get in upon arrival.

string lights on balcony/trees are burned out-would have been nice to see them

All in all a very pretty property, just a few upgrades and corrections and it could be great! :)

What a great property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this lake house. Lots of games for the kids to play and also for the adults. Even though this home is on a slope, there are leveled grassy areas where the kids can play. We also spent some time on the covered boat dock. The pride of ownerships shines through the entire property. Just A class! The owner is also very easy to contact if something comes up during the stay.
