Sam purchased this house in 1998

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a corporate gathering at Sam’s house. The house was perfect for this, it had a large open area where we all gathered to watch our Company videos on the large screen TV. We then had a gourmet dinner in a beautiful dining room that was prepared in the house’s very large kitchen.



The house sits on a bluff with spectacular views up and down Lake Austin. With all the levels and angles the house itself is a work of art.



In summary we enjoyed staying there and plan to do it again. It

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house was the most ideal vacation rental home I've ever stayed in. With beautiful views of Lake Austin, a spacious swimming pool, boat dock, and a state of the art grill, it is the perfect place for a large groups of people, or even for couples wanting a quick getaway. The house has plenty of space, as well as a beautiful kitchen for cooking. We felt right at home after buying groceries and cooking many of our meals in the kitchen or on the grill. The house is clean, and conveniently located 15-20 minutes from downtown. This house is an absolute score! I will never stay anywhere else when I return to Austin, except for this house. Thank you, Sam!

Big and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time time at this house! It is spacious and easily slept all 18 guys. Sam was extremely easy to work with! The views overlooking Lake Austin were just amazing. The house sits up about 100 feet from the lake with multiple outdoor sitting areas for viewing. Our only issue was the distance into downtown Austin (about 30 minute cab), but the house and amenities made up for that.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately there was construction on Mopac the main artery to downtown that weekend which slowed traffic at night. Normally without traffic the drive is 20 minutes.

Great place for a big group

  • 5 of 5

Stayed comfortably with a group of 18 guys. Everything in the house was in working condition. The covered deck was perfect for relaxing and watching the boats go back and forth. The dock was great for hanging in the sun, jumping into the water to cool off, and do some fishing. Easy enough location to call an Uber to get downtown or head up to lake Travis. Owner was quick to respond on rental inquiries and details.

Perfect location for a bachelor party

  • 5 of 5

Everyone out of our group of 15 was 100% satisfied with this place for a bachelor party. The location is ideal, about halfway between downtown Austin and Lake Travis, so whether you plan on tying up in the cove or heading downtown you're in a great spot. The place is extremely spacious and fit all 15 of us comfortably. I don't think I could have found a better combination of location and quality for the price. Would definitely recommend it to whoever was planning a big group get together and wanted to stay on the lake.

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! This is exactly what our group had in mind when we planned on taking a trip to Austin for the weekend. Sam provided fantastic customer service with quick replies to any questions we had and he also refunded our security deposit extremely quick. I would absolutely recommend this property to a friend.
