Guestbook comments from the manager

We really LOVED staying at your home…a great time!



More amenities than we knew what do do with. Fishing Poles, rafts, floats, boat dock. Set us up with a great pontoon rental right in the neighborhood (3 minutes from property) Playground for children was great with NEW equipment for our little ones. Ping Pong, Pool table, and Big Buck hunter by the downstairs bar. DVD's galore for adults and children.



We held a corporate retreat here with families and it was perfect for everyone. Kids could escape. Adults conducted business. More entertaining areas than one could imagine.



Trampoline out back and over an acre of manicured grass area for kids to play. Amazing out door grilling areas with the most beautiful sunset on the lake we have ever seen.



Definitely will rent again.

The golf cart was a great added amenity so we could have transportation for little ones to and from park a few hundred yards away. Great stay. We really enjoyed the place.

Not as advertised!!

  • 2 of 5

The property was beautiful. The aminities were not as advertised. The golf cart did not work only the ping pong table downstairs and pool table with one cue stick worked all other games were broken. Beds were not as advertised. Air conditioner was set to go up to 78 at night and cut off downstairs making it hard to sleep in hot Texas weather. Owner was not helpful in dealing with this. No trampoline no kayak definitely not as advertised would not stay here again. Lots of minor things in the house did not work. Wrote owner to complain. He did not respond. We felt we way over paid for what was there. It could be beautiful with a little care.

The property was great. It had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was great. Everyone had a great time. The only problem we had was the trash did not get picked up from the previous people . I realize the problem was trash only gets picked up on Mondays. We will probably consider coming again sometime in the future.

A superb visit at a fantastic location---excellent communication with owner---A+++ will visit again!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the listing referenced the first weekend in May---celebrating parent's 50th anniversary, assorted birthdays, and Mother's Day in one shot.

Completely as advertised, and owner was very communicative throughout weekend on any questions and or minor issues ( temp control) that came up along the way.

Lots of space to spread out---rooms were equipped with all amenities needed.

Expansive windows throughout the home offered brilliant sunlight throughout the day and great views in every direction/

Living room sofa was massive---and very comfortable, in front of a big TV!

Outside porch was very nice---great lake views and lots of seating.

Kitchen has electric stove and well stocked with plates, pots, & silverware---all the basics needed.

Golf cart was an added bonus to get around the hills and quickly reach common park Areas.

Downstairs game room was super cool---pool table, ping pong, shuffle board, air hockey---nice touch for indoor activities.

WIFI signal strength was strong throughout the house, and allowed for multiple devices to be connected without loss od speed.

Only drawback was the dryer was still full of clean towels from the previous visit...but was no issue at all in reality.

Weather was fantastic & picture perfect. Property has a deck and boat dock that was ideal for just kicking back and watching 3 nights of gorgeous sunsets. Amazed to look out the window early morning and see a family of 5 deer nestled and grazing in the grass of the property next door!

Ben: A sincere thanks for helping to set up an excellent weekend and stay at your property. This was our first time to use the homeaway service, and you did not fail to live up to expectations. Thank you so much for the timeliness in response and attention to details throughout the house that made it feel like a home away from home. Certainly we will be back in touch with you soon enough for a repeat visit this fall.

All in all---a great visit at a great property, with an owner that sincerely cares about the little details that make it worth the time & money.

Many thanks again, & best wishes.

Beautiful Lake Travis Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 16 at the house and were able to sleep and eat comfortably. Watching the Master's on the giant screen, getting in the water at the dock, playing ping pong, golfing at the local course, boating from the local marina, and enjoying some drinks and live music at the local watering hole .... what a great set up and a great memory. The owner was very accomodating while also giving us our privacy. Loved it all. Thanks Ben!

Memorable and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

A group of 12 students and the adult sponsors who are part of our Student Government program at a small private high school came here for a working retreat to bond and plan school activities. Ben was above and beyond accommodating and the property was more than enjoyable. The neighborhood is very nice and the location is perfect. The view from the house is magnificent and lovely to wake up to. The house is roomy but still has the right set up to be able to have people in the kitchen, dining room, and living room and still be able to enjoy each others company. The bedrooms are very nice and very fun to stay in. The tv and couch is perfect for late night movies with large groups and lower level is very fun for playing multiple games of pool, air hockey, and more. The memories we made here are wonderful and we will definitely be thinking of this property in the future.
