About Kathy Johnston

We manage our own property and enjoy ensuring that our guests have a great time. We have been Landlords for over 20 years and understand the importance making our guests feel at home.

Kathy Johnston purchased this house in 1995

Why Kathy Johnston chose Austin Lake Estates

This is a wonderful home with big decks that look right on to the lake. Being only two houses away from the pool and boat launch make it a fabulous summer place to be. We love this neighborhood that is eclectic, family friendly and as beautiful a place as there is.

What makes this house unique

The proximity of this home to down town, major shopping, dining and entertainment at the Galleria, One World Theater and Westlake Village~ this is really great for a place that makes you feel like you are on an island vacation!

Beautiful and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the house! It is a beautiful house with fabulous porches. It is across the street from the lake and has very pretty views from the house. There is an easy walk to the neighborhood lakeside park. The owners are super-helpful and respond to questions immediately. We would recommend this wholeheartedly!

Great property and service!

  • 5 of 5

The property worked out great for us as we were searching for a permanent home to purchase in the Austin area. Greg and Kathy could not have been more gracious hosts and were quick to answer the few questions we had. You cannot go wrong with this property or location!!

Great home in a fantastic neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate to be able to stay at this property for over six months while working on a government contract. While the house is nice and cozy and the owners are continuously working to improve and modernize it, enough can’t be said about the the wonderful location and community.

To begin with the house...its a cute 3 bed / 2 bath lake house with nice walkout decks, both upstairs and downstairs. It’s stocked with everything that you’ll need for your stay and the owners are more then willing to accommodate you with any extras that are required for your specific needs. The view of the lake is spectacular and its literally right across the street. In back there is plenty of room for parking on the property and a sizable gas grill. To give you an idea of the space...I was able to park a 6 x 12 travel trailer, a boat and two full sized pickups underneath the covered parking on the property.

The location is terrific! Despite being nestled away in a quiet lake community, you’re never more then 15-20 minutes from basically anything you would want to do in the Austin area. Additionally, there are several options for food and other essentials that are within minutes and a few places that deliver right to the door. There is a park that is about a two minute walk down the road that provides lake access, a boat launch, grills, docks, a basketball court and a swimming pool. So, if you have children, they’ll have plenty to do right around the house. Did I mention that the lake is literally right across the road??? It’s definitely worth highlighting that benefit again.

As for the community...I have literally traveled across the United States for work, and have either lived or spent significant time in over half the States, encompassing all of the regions of our country and have yet to find a better community! The people that I met while staying at the property have become more then life-long friends...they’re family.

Do yourself a favor and rent the property and see for yourself. More importantly, if you’re the social type, get out and meet the owners and neighbors, they are truly sensational people and will ensure your visit exceeds expectations. You might even acquire some new friends in the process.

Fabulous summer lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful relaxing vacation at this home nearby the scenic shores of Lake Austin. We echo all of the praises in prior reviews of this wonderful house that is extremely well-maintained by the most welcoming, contentious hosts in our renting experience. Every need that came up during our stay was dealt with promptly and with class.

The nearby park is a thriving hub of the community that provided us with endless entertainment and a lifetime of memories. My family looks forwards to returning to this special place provided by Kathy and her family!

Lake Austin Lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! So much closer to the lake than the pictures seem. We enjoyed the beautiful views almost as much as we enjoyed getting out on (and in!) the water at the nearby park. The house is very nicely furnished and totally updated. Everything we needed was there; comfortable beds, very nice bathrooms and a fully stocked kitchen. The owners were super friendly and accommodating. Just wish we could have stayed longer! We highly recommend this house and will stay there again!

Great, clean and updated house on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great experience in this rental house while our house was being remodeled. The space and layout was great with amazing porches both downstairs and up. The views were beautiful. The house was very clean and updated.

The neighborhood was great with only a minute walk to the lake, park and pool. Kathy and Greg are so incredibly nice and accommodating and very responsive. Highly recommended!
