About Cynthia manages this property

We will make sure your stay is relaxing and very enjoyable.

Mimi bought this property to 'get away' from the busy world. We used to live in this house and loved every minute of it.

There is not much property left on Lake Austin. It is quiet here and we love to go skiing, relax on the boat dock, or go to the local restaurants nearby.

Cynthia manages this property purchased this house in 1975

Why Cynthia manages this property chose Windy Cove

Retirement home. On the lake, central to downtown, private neighborhood, view of 360 bridge, wake boarding, water skiing, jet skiing and boating to restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Central, no traffic, close to everything and a great deal!

You're paying for the location, not the house

  • 4 of 5

The location of this home is unbelievable – right on the water with killer views and a lovely dock. But don't be surprised when you show up and the house is very small, quite old, and not exactly the luxury you'd expect from being in this neighborhood (or paying this price). It's simple and clean. But the couches are old and stained, the bathroom can fit one person max (and has no light), and there's no central AC. Which is fine as long as you know what to expect. And if you're new parents looking to sleep in, bring a mask and earplugs – the sun streams in through the old shades and yard guys were constantly around in the mornings. Overall a cute little place in a gorgeous area as long as you're aware of what you're in for. But we had a great, relaxing time and no major issues.

Picture perfect setting crappy accomodations

  • 3 of 5

While the setting and tranquility could not be beat, the cottage left a lot to be desired. The use of the kayaks and water equipment and the deck on the lake was by far the best part. The cottage probably hasn't been touched since it was built. The plumbing and electric don't appear to be up to code. The couches are stained and old. It should not be listed to sleep 4 adults comfortably. It is very small. Cynthia and Jerry were very accommodating letting us check in early however did not refund our security deposit due to a missing strap that costs 10$.

Depending what the purpose of the trip is, this could be a great place for you. It is far from downtown over very curvy roads.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our last family trip before sending our oldest son off to college and it was a wonderful time! Beautiful lake access and the cottage didn't disappoint. A beautiful property so close to everything but so relaxing with lake right there at your fingertips. We loved the kayaks and watching the moon come up over Lake Austin from the deck at the end of the day. A little gem for some great family time and relaxation.
