About Lyle Silbernagel

I am an RN who is self employed in Medical Sales for 20 years. I enjoy boating on Lake Austin, the Austin Music Scene, Restaurants and the neighborhood. I come from a great large family and have lots of friends.

Lyle Silbernagel purchased this house in 2000

Why Lyle Silbernagel chose Austin

I went to a party at this house when I moved to Austin from North Dakota in 1983. I really enjoyed the location. It came up for rent in 1997 and and I rented it. It then came up for sale in 2000 and ithen purchased it. It is a great place and I decided to make it a vacation rental, so many more people get to enjoy this cool place.

What makes this house unique

The close proximity to Lake Austin, downtown, and a couple of the most popular restaurants in Austin as well as Texas

Found It!

  • 4 of 5

If you want to enjoy all that Austin offers, from the very heart of things, there's no better than Lyle's place on Lake Austin. We brought the boat, parked it safely and conveniently next to the house and feet from the Walsh Landing put in; had a day on Lake Austin catching fish and swimming, another boating on Lake Travis (only a 30 min. drive) and nights on the town with some great music. Very clean and comfortable house with a great host and close to everything that's going on. Loved it!

All the details!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a weekend at this house. This place is set up with everything you could possibly need to have a great time. It is fully stocked with every kitchen tool, has coffee and all the fixings, spices, pots and pans, etc. It was super clean, great location, and working with the owner was a pleasure--awesome communication. The bedrooms were quiet at night, the a/c was cold and the drinks in the frig were a nice touch!

The owner has taken great care to provide helpful tips on operating the tv, switches, etc--all the details are taken care of. We ate at both Hula Hut and Abels, both on the lake. They are fun places to eat or just get a drink.

It rained most of the weekend we stayed so we didn't take advantage of the patio or backyard, but both are set up well. We highly recommend this unit and hope to stay there again in the future.

Excellant Location

  • 5 of 5

The location is great. Walking distance to Hula Hut and Abel's On The Lake. Easy drive to campus and down town as well. Also a great location for anyone looking to Kayak the lake (very close to Redbud Island, as well as bike along the lake and Westlake hills.

Air conditioning worked great... almost too good. We actually had to raise it above where the owner had it set. AC is not a thing to take for granted in the Austin heat.

There is a cool bar seating area on the front porch. We didn't use it since we were there with kids. However, it would probably come in handy for a group of adults getting away for the weekend, or groups coming in town for one of the music festivals.

Clean Home with great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed staying at this rental property last weekend. The house location was awesome. The owner was prompt at getting back with my confirmation. The King bed was very comfortable and the shower with Jacuzzi has great water pressure. Both mornings we walked over to Mozart's Coffee Roasters and had breakfast, fed the fish, and visited with some very nice people. You can easily walk to Mozart's, the Hula Hut, and Abel's on the lake. We had our Waverunners with us and launched them in the lake 1 block away. I could see the house from the boat ramp! This property is also only 5 minutes from downtown. I recommend it.

Perfect Austin Cool Rental.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. Great location, close to everything. Clean. Thoughtfully appointed. Great shower/bath. King bed rentals can be hard to find in this part of town, and this one was comfortable. Professionally and friendly managed. We will be back.
