Why Elizabeth chose Lake Travis

It is as private as you can get. The courtyard is large and sits high off street level. No one can see you. It was built as a party house and has a large circular hidden driveway that can discreetly accommodate many cars or boats..

Happy 80th, Mom!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a long family weekend to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Eight adults from three generations from around the country. It was great for a family gathering. The house is impeccably clean, i.e. no dust on top of the refrigerator and the furniture cushions were even vacuumed! The A/C was almost glacial, which is a must in Central Texas! We spent lots of time in the pool and on the deck and enjoyed the privacy of the setting. and cooking on the gas grill. It's almost as if you are in a private compound. Liz was very helpful with directions, questions, etc. We recommend this great home and would book it again.

This house was spaces and beautiful! Everything you need is provided in the kitchen and bath. The living room was amazing. We spent most of our time in the living room. Love all the natural light at the house brings in during the day! Would definitely rent again !

Awesome Pool ----- Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for a family fun getaway, for 8 adults, and 3 nine year olds. The kids absolutely LOVED the pool (so did the adults) ---- they jumped in as soon as we arrived and spent hours swimming. The patio is well lit so we were able to swim as early as we wanted to in the morning, and as late as we wanted to at night. The home was very private and allowed us to enjoy nightly family barbecue's while being able to enjoy music. The home is super close to Lake Travis, and there is a place less than 5 minutes away where you can rent a boat for a day out. We had such a great time, and look forward to booking this home again next year.

Fortress Weekend

  • 2 of 5

This was our second year to stay at the Fortress and we were looking forward to swimming after golf. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived and the pool was green with algae. Elizabeth assured us that it was OK to swim in but we did not agree. She did send a service tech to work on the A/C for the living room and he did get it to cool down. The house needs a little more attention from the owner to get it back into great shape. It is a fun house for a girls golf weekend.

Owner's Response: As I shared with this guest, the pool, was fine, it was not green, there was no satisfying these guests. Same pool company we have used for years, so the owner was out everyday to attend to their concerns. We paid for the HVAC company to make a visit to see the issue on the AC in living room, and there was nothing wrong, and was 69 degrees. I did not keep their deposit to cover the fees for the service calls that were not needed. There was not way to make these women happy. You win some you loose some.

Swimming Pool

  • 2 of 5

This was our second year to rent this house with the great swimming pool. Imagine our disappointment when we arrived and the pool was green with algae. Elizabeth assured us that the water was OK to swim in but we disagreed since we could not see the bottom of the pool. Also the upkeep of the house (inside and outside) was not as good as it was last year. A repairman was sent out to fix the air conditioning so the living room would cool down. The house has a great layout for groups. Hopefully the owner will pay more attention and get the house back into top shape.
