Lovely and homey property with plenty of supplies to make our stay even more comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My cousins and I took our annual group fun for the first time to Austin; this was also the first time we would be extending our trip to an overnight stay in another city, and we are pleased to have done so in the Jones' lake-house property. The view was spectacular (we were even able to see a few of the Perseid meteors!). There was plenty of room for all 11 of us; there were beach items, some snacks, and basic cooking utensils and supplies already there to make the stay even smoother; and Austin was relatively close by for a day out on the town.

We had a great time and are talking about doing something similar again next year; the owners were kind and helpful every time we had contacted them.

Thanks for giving us a place to make some great memories!

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home was absolutely beautiful! Plenty of space for my group of 14 adult women! Perfect destination for a girls trip in Austin. Beautiful view of lake Travis and the neighborhood has all the essentials you would need: boat ramp, pool, park, etc. The owners are so accommodating and very responsive to any questions you may have. Highly recommended and my entire group wants to use this house in the future!

Very beautiful property! Loved the hill country panoramic view it offered of the area hills and lake

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was wonderful. My family and I had a great time! Loved the home and property; Beautiful views of the hill country and lakefront from the deck. The house was well put together and accommodating for my family of nine. The mornings was very tranquil listening to the birds or looking at the deers around the property from the deck. Great place to stay!

Owner's Response: It's always nice to host a group that takes such good care of our Lake Travis Family Vacation Home ("our Lake House"). All was neat and orderly when they checked out. They were courteous and respectful of the resident neighbors. We would recommend Vernon and his family to any future hosts. Sincerely Ron Jones Owner and Host Barbara Jones Co-Host
