A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Loved our very, very short stay and just so sad it couldn't be longer. The house is peaceful and comfortable, but close to anywhere you need to be in the Austin area. Lolla was very helpful with all our needs and I look forward to coming back to spend more time in this beautiful spot. Thank you

Amazing location right on Lake Austin

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Austin and have always loved being out on Lake Austin. Staying at this gem of place right on Lake Austin was a real treat. Gordon was such a great host and really made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay exceptional. We hope to spend many more weekends enjoying this place.

Best place on Lake Austin- Hands down

  • 5 of 5

Such a great place to stay! The home is so charming and has everything you could ask for. Easy 10 minutes to downtown/grocery stores/ restaurants. We loved all the outdoor areas to relax and the huge yard was perfect. we tied our boat to the side of the yard, it was protected from any incoming waves. There were 8 people in our group, it was very comfortable, never felt too crammed. Jana and Gordon were so helpful and everything went smoothly. We even had to change some things last minute and Gordon was very accommodating. On our last day we got to meet him and he was so friendly, wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Hope to be back a few times before the end of the year :)

Stay here, you won't regret it!
