Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house! Stayed here for part of SXSW. Went downtown every day just a short 15 minute drive. it was great to be able to relax grill outside and enjoy the lake. Beautiful home. I will be back next year!

Very Disappointed in their poor customer service

  • 1 of 5

Our stay was okay/mediocre. It was a spacious home and had nice views. However, there were barely any water pressure in one of the bathrooms so the shower essentially didn't work. The TV's were not functioning. On one of the days, I called them to inquire about something but they didn't answer and didn't return my call. Once my stay was over, per our contractual agreement, I expected them to return my deposit within 2 weeks. (We left the place in good condition.) I sent multiple emails to their accounting group and made several calls to their office. They did not respond to either one! About 3 weeks after my stay, I was finally able to reach someone and it happened to be the owner. She verified my stay and confirmed to me that there was an error and that a check should've been mailed out to me. She assured me that she will have her accountant send me a check the very next morning and that she will give me a call a soon as it was mailed. It's been another ~2-3 weeks after that conversation and I still have not received my deposit back nor a call from her. I have just sent them another email today (8/29/2015) and intend to call them again on Monday, August 31st. I hope by sending this review, along with the emails, plus another phone call will get them to adhere to the contract agreement and send me back my deposit!

An average property

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this property in June and it was an "ok" experience. We had a last minute emergency and the property owners were kind enough to let us reschedule our stay.

As for the property, its big, lots of space. We stayed with a few babies, so it was nice to have the space. The property itself is not well maintained, our friend got bitten by a wasp twice as there was a wasp nest outside garage. The upstairs gets really hot during the day, the temperature stays over 85 degrees. We all had to hide downstairs during the day. I don't recommend staying here in summer. Really old tvs, they weren't working. When we contacted the property manager, no on responded all day and the repair guys didn't show up till late night of our stay to fix them. The grills were filthy and too small. We couldn't really get in the water, as there were tree branches from the rain a few days ago.

We usually stay in lake houses around Austin couple of times a year. For almost 1000 per night, you can stay at a much better property. Most of the reviews here are much older so i guess property conditions have changed.

Beyond my expectations

  • 5 of 5

I came here with a group of 13 guys and the house was more beautiful than the pictures suggest. It was a little bit of a trek to downtown Austin, but well worth the drive. I couldn't have been more impressed with the space of the house and how relaxing it was to lounge on the dock. Definitely hope to come back one day.

Great House

  • 4 of 5

The house was a perfect fit for 6 people but not if you are all adults. Two rooms are for children, twin beds with trundle beds. If you have adults who are not couples then you truly have only 4 bedrooms that work. The water pressure in the master bath shower was not very strong. The water that came out of the faucet in the kitchen smelled bad. The view was spectacular and the area was nice and quiet. I would recommend it for a getaway just not for a large group of people that are sleeping in separate beds.

Our friends invited us for a weekend getaway and we absolutely fell in love with the house. It was spacious, inviting and we are already planning a return trip!
