Come spend your vacation here at Captain Jay's Cove Lake Castle on Lake Travis. Private Cove, you're not next door to anybody. We are one of the largest waterfront properties in Volente. This is a 3-master bedroom plus, 3.5 bath house on a 2.5-acre lakefront lot with private cove, private boat dock and two boats and jet ski for rent, as well as, recreational area with patio and firepit. No-one has this acreage or view of the main body of Lake Travis. Note: We are in the country and will have critters and such around.
Responsible parties welcome. We take great pride in keeping the grounds and house clean we ask our guest to do the same upon their departure. We greet our guests and provide a tour of the house and grounds upon arrival. We live on the property in a separate house with our three dachshunds (the dogs are kept in a fenced area). We will do not disturb our guests, we do make ourselves available 24hrs if our guests need help or have a question.
