Point Venture House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom, 3 bath Lake View Home with 1700 sq. ft. deck on Scenic Lake Travis


***Hot Tub and Outside Fireplace***

1700 SQUARE FOOT DECK with water wall feature and HOT TUB has panoramic views of Lake Travis. Guests gather on the deck for lively conversation and to toast the sun as it sets over the lake and extending hill country.

Evenings are enjoyed down by the OUTSIDE FIREPLACE and patio where a fire welcomes s'mores and more.

The large sectional sofa in the MOVIE ROOM provides a great movie going experience watching the big screen projector. The movie room is a 6th bedroom that sleeps at least two on the trundle bed.

The master bedroom has an in-suite LARGE MASTER BATHROOM with a separate shower and Jacuzzi bathtub. The master bedroom also has a balcony that faces the lake which gives the feeling of being high in the trees like a tree house.

Upstairs is an APARTMENT set up with an additional entrance from the deck. The apartment includes 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, living room, dining room and a kitchen that has a full size refrigerator, microwave and sink. The double doors that lead to the deck from the apartment showcase stunning views of Lake Travis.

Wildlife definitely abounds in Point Venture with deer, foxes, rabbits, roadrunners and birds.

The community has a private park with a sometimes BEACH when the water levels dip low, basketball court, children's playground and boat ramps. There is also the Point Venture Golf Course which boasts as one of the best 9 hole courses in the state. Point Venture has a Junior Olympic swimming pool, workout facility and tennis courts.

A special treat is to venture on down to the floating restaurant on Lake Travis, The Gnarly Gar, for some lake side food and to listen to the locals play your favorite music.

About Lisa & Richard Jackson

We are Texans and love Lake Travis. We have been making memories on Lake Travis for over 30 years. We think this is heaven on earth!

Lisa & Richard Jackson purchased this house in 2002

Why Lisa & Richard Jackson chose Lake Travis

We built this house in 2002 on land that has been in the family for 40 years. The house was designed with the idea of being together and enjoying the views.

What makes this house unique

The house was designed to have a view of the lake from just about any place in the house. Our most favorite spot is the deck. We gather on the deck on the double chase or hang out in the hot tub and tell stories for hours. Fireside chats with a glass of wine with good friends is another favorite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an awesome place! Beautiful deck and open living area for hanging out with the group, and plenty of private space to escape for some quiet time. Perfect place to get away from it all and make some great memories with friends or family!

Wow, what a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Carl's on the Lake was the perfect place for our family get-together. The weather was awesome, so we spent more time outside than in, but the house met all the needs of our 10 adults and five kids. We had plenty of room to sleep, cook, eat and play. The upstairs area plus apartment allowed us to spread out and do whatever we wanted individually. Lisa was very accommodating and made herself available at all times. Her attention to detail was impressive. Would love to stay here again.

Fun Family Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Close to 20 of us stayed at Carl's on the Lake for two nights and had a wonderful time. The home is beautiful, well equipped and the view is spectacular! We had a mix of all ages and there was plenty of room for all of us. The day we arrived someone wanted to watch a football game on ESPN and found that the station wasn't available. I called Lisa about it and within an hour we were up and running with ESPN on all the TVs. It's very obvious that she cares about her home and those who vacation there. It was a nice touch that Lisa left a basket of koozies and bubbles on the table for us to use. The kids loved the bubbles on the back deck while the adults relaxed and soaked in the view. There are a few rules in the neighborhood, but not anything too difficult to handle. There is parking for only six cars at the house and no street parking however there is a nice parking lot for overflow parking. It was easy to drop off the cars that were driving in and out over the weekend and use the circle driveway for parking for the rest. The private park in Point Venture is very nice and we enjoyed being able to use it and also the boat ramp in the park. Bugs at dusk are an issue on the back deck so I suggest bringing repellent. There were a few containers of bug repellent left for us to use, but most were close to empty. One suggestion for Lisa is that the home have a recycling bin. If there was one, we never saw it and it was a shame to put so many cans and bottles in the regular trash. I would definitely recommend Carl's on the Lake for families or groups of friends who are looking for are looking for a fun and relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: So glad your college football teams delivered for you! Bubbles at sunset - nothing more fun! And yes, we had recycle bins however they were being used consistently for regular trash. The park ramps is such a breeze to launch the boats in the lake for great fun out on Lake Travis.

Amazing Lake Views!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we could have wanted for a girl's weekend getaway! My favorite part was that the patio was large enough for our group of 16 to enjoy morning coffees and evening sunsets on the patio comfortably. We went down to the beach area one day and enjoyed some fun in the water. The home and community were just perfect! Lisa is extremely communicative and helpful every step of the way.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the time on the deck. Those sunsets can't be beat. And the water is so clear down off the park. It is always a fun day down at the water's edge.

Wonderful House with Great View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Carl's by the Lake! It was the perfect house for our large family to gather. The house has plenty of space, everything was clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and the view was amazing. Lisa was great to work with and responded quickly if we needed anything.
