About Cynthia Seifert
I have been renting our home on Lake LBJ since 2008 and we decided to purchase a home on Lake Austin so that our guests could also enjoy our little slice of paradise on Lake Austin. I own the home and I also manage it so you will be speaking directly with me and not a management service. My Lake LBJ rental home has over 60 5-star reviews that you can look through. https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p277959

Why Cynthia Seifert chose Montview Harbor
The first time we saw this home, we knew we had to purchase it. It is amazing. The view, the decks, the kitchen! The shallow water is perfect for our dogs and our children. It is tucked away in a little neighborhood on Lake Austin but it is still close to the city.

Very enjoyable and we had a great time with our family and friends!
The house was very inviting and perfect for our family
I wish the propane would have been full at outdoor gas fire pit..
Thank you for the nice review Matthew! Sorry about the fire pit! You should have called me and I would have been happy to come change it out for you! Next time, doesn't hesitate to call me if you need something. I am always happy to come out and take care of anything you need...I am only 20 minutes away. I hope you and your family come back again soon. Cheers, Cynthia
Fantastic Rental on the Lake
We loved staying at this property (and our kiddos loved it as well!). Great location on the lake. Amenities were awesome and the house was very tastefully appointed. We especially loved hanging out at the dock both nights of our stay. Would absolutely recommend and hope to do a repeat if we come back to Austin in the future.
Thank you for the wonderful review Bryan! I am so glad that you and your family had a nice time. Come back when it is warmer so your kiddos can swim in the lake! Cheers, Cynthia
Awesome Weekend on the Lake
This is a lovely property, right on Lake Austin, with a boat dock. The views from the boat pavilion are lovely and the there is a small beach which makes getting into the water extra easy.
The top floor of the house is open plan; great for families and get-togethers. The kitchen dining and living area all open to a second floor porch.
Downstairs are three bedrooms, another porch, and access to the lake.
A great place for fun and relaxation.
Hi John! Thank you for your wonderful 5-star review. I hope you and your family can come back again next summer! Cheers, Cynthia
Cynthia was great to work with and very accommodating. Loved the appliances in the kitchen and overall house. Close enough to get into Austin. Would recommend for sure.
Hi Dana! Thanks for the awesome review. I am so glad you guys had a fun time. I look forward to having you back in the future!
Spacious Lake Austin Retreat
We had the pleasure of staying at Montview Harbor for 8 nights during the summer.
The house is new and feels purpose-built; all of the rooms orient to the lake in a delightful way. Since the house is situated on the top of the canyon slope residents enter onto the top floor which houses all of the public spaces of the house (living, dining, kitchen) as well as one of the bedrooms. Downstairs are the other three bedrooms and entrance to the terracing that takes you down to the lake.
The lake side of the house is continuously covered with porches and terraces which provide ample opportunities to be outside but also shielded from the sun. On the lake is a boat house which provides multiple opportunities to hang out on the water. We brought our kayaks and it was simple to launch them due to the sand beach adjacent to the dock. The boat house is outfitted with very comfortable furniture; we spent most evenings having drinks there while we looked at the night sky. Due to the location of the house on the lake breezes were reasonable and we were comfortable more than we thought we would be in the Texas summer.
The yard between the house and the lake is fenced which worked out great because the owner graciously allowed us to bring our dogs.
The interior of the house is charmingly finished; wood and stained concrete floors, concrete countertops and high end appliances create an atmosphere of casual Texas elegance. My family has rented Lake Austin house multiple times and Montview Harbor was the most enjoyable / comfortable experience that we have had.
Wow! What an awesome review. This will be so helpful for future guests to know more about our lake home. I am delighted that you had a nice stay and I hope you consider coming back in the future!
I would highly recommend staying here. The house was beautiful and slept 9 adults comfortably. Well kept house with plenty of space for all of us both inside and out. The host was prompt in responses to questions and willing to help accommodate us better. I was worried about location as we were spending the weekend both enjoying the house and enjoying the city. I didn't know anything about the area, ease of getting an uber to the place, exc. All of this was easy! Located right off the highway and a quick drive to Lake Travis or into Austin to enjoy the night life.
Hi Rachel! Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so glad you and your friends had a nice stay. I look forward to having you back in the future!
