About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 9)

Our home is a fabulous home for your next lake Travis getaway. With its great location in Lakeway and being across from the Lakeway marina, you will be close to everything you need for the best vacation ever! Located on the lake in Lakeway, you have access to all water activities as well as waterfront restaurants. After a great day on the lake, a variety of restaurants, shops, golf courses and much more is only a few minutes away. Or, if you would like to venture farther into Austin, you are less than 20 miles away. You are also close to the Texas hill country, that has everything from caves, ziplines, wine tasting and antiquing.

But, if you just want to relax at home, you have a huge open plan living room, large balcony to watch beautiful sunsets and grill. Or snuggle up in the den with a cozy fire. i

About Peggy Dietel

My grandmother and grandfather built this house and since then i have grown up making some of my best memories with my family playing cards, sitting on the balcony watching sunsets and swimming down in the lake in front of the house. Now i have a 7mth old boy and he is getting to have the same wonderful experiences in this lovely home.

Peggy Dietel purchased this house in 1983

Why Peggy Dietel chose Lake Travis

i have been fortunate to travel the world, yet i always come back to Austin and more specifically Lakeway. There is no happier or more beautiful spot for me and my family.

What makes this house unique

Our home is very inviting and family friendly and the balcony is is where every one comes together to spend the day and night visiting. Wether you are sitting on the porch swing and watching the world go by, firing up the grill for some steaks its just a wonderful setting. And when it gets to hot you simply walk down to the lake and jump on in, heaven.

Stayed with a big group of friends and we all had an incredible time. The house is spacious and had enough bedrooms for everyone and the common area and living room was large enough for everyone to get together and hang out. The back porch had a great view of lake Travis and it was awesome waking up to that view every morning. There is also access down to the lake and has some swings and chairs down there. If you're looking for a beautiful view of lake Travis close to attractions and a big spacious home this is your Lakehouse. I would highly recommended and hopefully be staying there again one day!

Perfect for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great choice for our family vacation. We had more than enough room for all 6 adults and 3 children. We enjoyed the open floor plan. The back deck was used morning noon and night. The 4th bedroom has a king bed plus a single instead of two twins. This was great. Made our sleeping options great.

We enjoyed getting in the water also.

Convenient to grocery and drug store.

Thank you for making our vacation so comfortable.

Great Location. Great Updated House for Multiple Guests

  • 5 of 5

We used this home for a yearly guys getaway to catch up and relax. This was a nicely updated home with a great location on Lake Travis. The home was clean, and had large beds for multiple guests. There is not much night life in the area, but this isn't the fault of the home. Only a 10 minute drive from Falconhead golf course and Lakeway Marina. Only issue we had is that the landscapers were there all weekend trimming out trees. While we were all floating in the lake on Friday evening catching up, and we had the view and noise of landscapers cutting down tress 20 feet from us. Then Saturday morning, we are trying to leave the house and are blocked in by the landscaping truck and trailer. Then we are hanging out on the deck talking and all we can here is the leaf blower downing us out. They could have had these guys come at a different time. But besides that, the house was great and the process was easy. Would stay here again for sure, just without the landscapers this time :)

Great place for family get together!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the huge deck with great view and BBQ grill. This place has an open plan with plenty of furniture for 3 families with spacious living and dining area and good size bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of appliances. The house was clean and beautifully decorated! The Marina is very close. There are lots of things to do and places eat nearby. The Owner is accommodating and friendly. We had a wonderful time this past Memorial weekend.

Wonderful view and overall nice villa with an open plan. But some quirks!

  • 4 of 5


- Villa view - 5 stars

- Villa living room - 5 stars (very nice open plan)

- Kitchen - 5 stars (open and adequate. Its not the grandest, but quite utilitarian and nice)

- Bedrooms - 3-5 stars (only bedroom has attached baths. The others do not. One bedroom is really not for mature adults as it has twin beds and the bedroom door has no lock)

- Balcony - 5 stars (beautiful and open)

- Construction of villa - 3 stars (probably 20+ years old with some updates and it shows in the bathrooms and doors)

- TV - 2 stars (we never could get the cable to work and watch March Madness (:

- Price - 5 stars

- Overall 3.5-4 stars

There were 9 of us adults most over 60 years that used the villa over an weekend. The villa has an unassuming front exterior that belies a villa with an excellent floor plan for the most part (except the bathrooms) and wonderful view of Lake Travis. The villa had two bedrooms fronting Lake Travis and two that do not. Only one bedroom has a dedicated bathroom. The other two bathrooms are shared (one with two doors one of which opens into the living area and the other one is mostly shared with two bedroom). We enjoyed the stay due to our mutual company and really loved the living area and the balcony. It was nice and open and allowed for maximum interaction and marveling views of Lake Travis.

Our one major complaint was the aging bathrooms. This showed in one of the toilet' flush not working, but having to manually reach into the tank to release the water. The other bathroom which had two doors - one of which opened into the living area, had its sliding door go off the rails. None of us could extricate the sliding door for our entire stay, as the door slid into a recess. Needless to say this bathroom become virtually useless for all others, other than some males. We reported the problems to the Dietels on Saturday morning, but they were unable to have someone fix this issue. Other than the inconvenience of the bathroom malfunctions for 3 days, we had a wonderful stay.

We will probably not stay here again, due to possibility of repeat malfunction with the bathrooms.

Owner's Response: Built in 1982 our Lake Travis home must designed with family in mind. The home has been updated several times, but it has been impossible to completely update the baths without moving walls. The description of the house clearly states that there are 2 king beds and 5 twins. There are two bathroom attached to bedrooms and 1 bath shared by two bedrooms. All bathrooms have privacy doors. However, 2 baths can be accessed down a hall by those in the Great Room. We try very hard to remedy any problems in a timely manner. The bathroom malfunction was reported to us late on a Saturday afternoon. We were unable to have this fixed until Monday morning.

Gorgeous House

  • 5 of 5

Such a gorgeous house and view. The pictures really do not do this house justice. Very spacious with a great deck that overlooks Lake Travis.
