Space 3,200 sq. ft.

Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

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


***Hot Tub and Outside Fireplace***

***NO house PARTIES or EVENTS allowed***

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 65" TV screen. 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!

Exceeded all our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Even 14• temps couldn't keep these girls off this amazing deck. If you are looking for a place to get away with a group where there is also plenty of space to be alone if necessary, this home is for you. It was a great "homebase" for our trip, and we WILL be back.

Excellent floor plan for a large group, including children

  • 5 of 5

Our family just had an amazing reunion for my parent's 40th wedding anniversary - 10 adults and a bunch of grandkids. There was plenty of space for everyone to have a bed - and several bedrooms away from the general living area that were great for naps and late sleepers! The deck and hottub area were immaculate and there was so much outdoor seating. We enjoyed the fire pit and the kids loved exploring the secret garden. The kids also loved taking some trips to the park nearby to run around and get some energy out! And the media room with the giant TV was a good distraction at times as well!

The kitchen was well stocked with dishes for cooking and baking, with plenty of plates and silverware for all! All of the appliances were clean and well-functioning - made meals for a large group smooth and easy!

The home was immaculately clean and fresh - it smelled amazing and was decorated in a cozy, Texas hill country style. The furniture was comfortable and very clean with plenty of seats. The open floor plan made it easy to hang out as a group while some were preparing meals or cleaning up. Plenty of fluffy towels and linens. Great little soaps and shampoos and other amenities to get you through the first couple days. Pillows and beds were very comfortable and made for a great night's sleep!

Lisa was incredibly responsive and helped with any questions within just a minute or two. Always very gracious and responded as if she were helping a friend and not a stranger! You could feel the love that they had for their home in how well it was taken care of. So hospitable and such a special place to share time as a family!

Highly recommend this lovely home! You will be so glad you came to visit! Hope we get to make it back in the summer to enjoy the lake sometime soon!

Owner's Response: It was a great gathering and we look forward to having the family back again this summer! We agree that our home is spacious and inviting and the views from the deck are a favorite! It was a pleasure hosting you in our home.

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.
