About Don Kahn

Don Kahn has been in the vacation business for over 30 years. Our main goal is always to give you a vacation to remember.

Why Don Kahn chose Lake Travis

Multiple decks are great for spreading out for adults and kids. We've even had parties with full bands playing. Perfect for entertaining for family gatherings or large groups of friends with the sloping yard right down to the water. A 25 foot sailboat can be pre-arranged to pick you up right from the dock.

What makes this house unique

Staying at the Lake House is like living in a tree house, with the added benefit of lake access from your back yard. You can see the Lakeway Resort from your back yard and there are plenty of restaurants/live music venues with lake access (i.e. Gnarly Gar waterfront restaurant, The Sundancer Grill, Canyon Creek Grill, The Rusty Rudder, etc).

Highly Disappointed!! Considered leaving a night early. Not worth the money we paid!

  • 1 of 5

My family and I were so excited to come have a getaway to this location. When we first got here, we were greeted by a man and his girlfriend, who permanently live in the apartment downstairs. They told us they would be more than happy to leave while we were here, scared they would interfere with our plans, lucky enough the house upstairs was enough room to accommodate all of us, but it was a bit weird and a bit off putting knowing there was a couple staying under us downstairs.

Searching the property, before actually going into the house, we went to our personal dock just to check everything out, and realized it was pretty much a hike down a mountain to the lake, and then back up to the house. And after taking a dip in the lake, when it's time to get out after all the little minnows nip at you, when you head to the ladder, there are only 2 steps, so hopefully you have enough upper body strength to lift yourself up.

Finally, when you get up to the house, I felt like it was similar to the pictures online, but it was almost like a different house. Even when we got here, the second bedroom wasnt made up for 2 of our guests, so the caretakers (couple that lives downstairs) made it up for us, but it was just weird. Then, washing your hands at all in the house left you feeling unclean. The soap was so watered down, it might as well just been water with food coloring in it. Same with the soap detergent to do any laundry. The detergent was so watered down, there was no way it washed any of our clothes, and I cant imagine it acually cleaned or sanitized the sheets we were sleeping on.

WIth the showers, it was the most difficult task to take a shower in this house and actually feel clean. The water pressure is so low, that if you wash your hair, you feel like you didn't get everything out.

The beds were so squeaky that every time you turned over, you felt like you were going to wake someone else up.

In the kitchen, the refrigerator smelled like straight up fish, and we literally used one pan to cook everything when we did eat at home.

When it comes time for rest and relaxation, there are only 10 or so channels on the TV, but even IF you find something to watch as you relax, all the bugs (flies, wasps, yellow jackets) are quite annoying.

All in all, this vacation was a bust for my family. It got to the point where we did consider leaving a night early.

We would rather spend more to rent the beautiful mansion next door, than this cabin.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We have contacted you and are waiting for you to call back so we can offer you some type of compensation. Although we cannot control things like the water level, minnows or bugs outside, we do take your complaints very seriously and have terminated the caretakers and relieved them of their duties immediately. We have never allowed them to stay downstairs when we had guests and did not know that they did. Again my apologies to you and your family. We have corrected all the mentioned problems.
