About Maggie Machacek

We just purchased this townhome in December 2012. It is a great place for our large family of 7. Plenty room for our children and their friends. We have grown up in Houston and continue to live there.

Maggie Machacek purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Maggie Machacek chose Lake Travis

We have boated in Lake Travis since the 1980's. This area has been one of our favorite lakes in Texas. We started coming to Point Venture when our Cypress neighbors bought a town home several years back. We enjoy Point Venture because there is so much to do for all ages!! We are making our town home a family oriented town home for all ages. Our town home can easily accommodate several families. Plenty of space to spread out.

What makes this townhome unique

The biggest unique benefit to our town home is the size. We have 6 bedrooms. Our town home is in easy walking distance to golf course, swimming area, fitness center, library, and the Gnarly Gar floating restaurant at the marina. We love our lake view from our deck and feeding the deer from there also! There is also double wide , double length driveway. No problem with backing that boat up and leaving it hitched to truck for the next day! Or when water is up-leave boat tied to dock with the paddle boat we provide!! We have added a home theater. Our home is family friendly-lots for kids to be entertained with inside the home. With in Point Venture there is plenty to do!! There are a lot of attractions outside of Point Venture also-Wineries, parks, shopping, water park, zip line, caves, old towns, hiking, bird watching, close to Austin.

Great Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for my family. Lots of space, lots of rooms, and the kitchen and the patio grill were both perfect. The goal was to get away and relax and the house helped us achieve this goal. We had great fun feeding and watching the deer. My grandkids thoroughly enjoyed that part of the trip. Everything in the house was in working order and was as it was billed in the rental information material. We did have one issue with the air conditioner (ants got in the unit and shorted out the unit). One call to the the owner and the issue was resolved in less than two hours. Really appreciated their attention to the matter in a timely manner. Swimming pool was great, the golf course was very enjoyable, and the trip was a lot of fun for the entire family. Hope we have the opportunity to return at another time.

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in this house. It was clean, comfortable, and very roomy. Lots of games and a tv in kids room upstairs which made it fun for everyone. Only issue I had was the water access and dock. It was somewhat steep getting to and from dock with concrete stairs so I was very nervous with the kids going up and down. The dock was missing a bouy which was dislodged and floating next to the dock which made the dock unsteady. Also there was no ladder on the dock which made it extremely difficult to exit the lake. We ended up spending most of our time at the park down the street. Although this was convenient, it wasn't what we were expecting to do in a waterfront rental. Overall we had a wonderful time and Maggie was very prompt in answering questions.

Owner's Response: We spend most of our time at the lake front at the park when we want to hang out and swim. Our dock is great for docking the boat, and some people do swim there. Our kids love to use the provided paddle boat in the cove. The floating buoy is not part of our dock.

We truly fell in love with this house. It was perfect for our big family.

  • 5 of 5

The house was right on the water, with a short hike down to the dock. It was like having our own private lake. We kayaked and rode on the paddle boat, fished and did lots of swimming. We experienced a small problem in the house and the homeowner came to our rescue and came right over and solved our problem. I am already looking forward to my next trip and this house will definately be my choice. Maggie was wonderful and easy to work with. Definately worth a second, third and fourth stay.

Wonderful does do not do the visit justice.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the paddle boat! We found a large "blow-up" boat on the bottom outside deck, but were unsure if we could use, so left it alone. Home was clean and spacious. We were disappointed that grill was not hooked up, clean and ready to go, but we were fine with cooking indoors. Swimming pool was a short distance and bigger than we thought. We loved this place. Would stay again for sure. Thanks, Maggie. Loved our family time together and that you were able to make it happen. Blessings!
