About Alan Gabriel

The owners of the residence call this their 'primary' home. While they've enjoyed many great years with family relaxing at this special Lake Travis oasis, their children are grown and now have families of their own which means less time at Lake Travis. They now travel to their kids and well as another property located in Galveston, TX. While away from 'home', they are proud to offer this unique and unmatched setting to other families for their vacation adventure and/or relaxation.

What makes this house unique

Privacy...3.8 acres! This is hard to find on Lake Travis. Many waterfront properties sit high on the cliff and are on zero-lot you'll have to bond with your next door neighbors whether you want to or not. AND...most Lake Travis properties are situated very high on a bluff....which do allow for substantial views we admit...but why not have both? Panoramic views and a gentle slope down to the private boat dock that is nestled in a peaceful cove and away from the main channel of the lake where the high boat traffic can exist, especially during the high-season months. At mile marker 32 of a 65 mile long lake...we'd say the location can't be beat as well. A 15 minute boat ride one-way to lakeside bars and restaurants, or head the other way for some of the most private and calm skiing/fishing that can be found on the lake. Truly an Unmatched Waterfront location at Circle J!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time at the house this weekend. We are very thankful for the community time we were able to have with friends. Thank you so much for all your help to make it happen for us. We absolutely loved it there and we would would love to come back to do it again sometime. I hope you had a great 4th too!

Great weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The house was perfect for our large group of 15. Plenty of room for everyone! Great having a boat ramp right on the property with a boat slip with easy access to! The down stairs area with the large projector screen was great to watch the Football game on! The porch was the perfect spot to have your morning coffee and take in the views of the lake!

The only negative thing was the couches in the main living area need to be updated, they have a great a bit of stains on them!

Overall everyone enjoyed the house for the weekend, and they took dogs was a big plus, with plenty of outside to run around!

Highly recommended place for large group!

  • 5 of 5

Second time at this oasis and can't wait to come back! It's private and perfect for families of all ages. It rained while we were there but it didn't matter, so much to do indoors and outdoors. All age groups roam freely and stay entertained! The cove is private and access to the lake through the stairs make it super easy to get in and out of the water. This property is beautiful inside and out!

Excellent. Perfect for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in great shape, clean and contains everything one would need need for your trip. Wonderful outdoor patio area where we spent so much time. We rarely left the property during our 3 day stay simply because there are endless things to do onsite. We felt comfortable in the large home with two full families...16 total and plenty of room for more. We were looking for privacy, and this allowed for that. Lots of land so we weren't near any other homes. Wish there was more water in the lake...but at least there was still plenty of water here and the dock swing was fun. Very easy going, lake friendly owners...and we were left along to enjoy our vacation.

Located on the North Shore of Lake Travis. Great area of the lake, not crowded...but not far via boat from the popular Lake Travis 'hot-spots'. The 3.8 acres includes over 750 feet of shoreline, boat dock, and your own private boat launch!

Feel the breeze on the main level of the home by opening the tri-fold doors in the great room, or walk out on the wrap-around terrace to enjoy the beautiful views. There is plenty of room for family and friends in this 6000 sqft home. Living areas include a great room, game room, media room, bar/lounge area plus outdoor living spaces - a pavilion, covered porch, patio & terrace.

FYI, while privacy is certainly an added bonus at this waterfront location, please note the property is roughly 10 miles (by car) from any amenity. Lago Vista is the nearest location where you'll find a CVS, gas stations, small grocery store, etc. The largest HEB grocery store is in Cedar Park, approximately a 30 minute drive from the house. Please plan accordingly.
