Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12 (12 adults)

Host your next big family reunion or holiday gathering at this sprawling riverside home featuring a covered balcony, large grassy yard, new boathouse and dock with boat lift, two jet ski ramps, protected swimming area, and even an elevator for guests with limited mobility.

This three-bedroom vacation rental is located right on the Colorado River, nine miles south of Buchanan Lake, and only 70 miles northwest of downtown Austin for shopping, dining, museums, and more.

Airy and bright, this custom-designed home has wide open living spaces throughout with high ceilings, hardwood floors, and walls of windows offering unobstructed views of the river and the surrounding tree-lined neighborhood.

The open floorplan offers two distinct seating areas including one with a massive, 70-inch flatscreen, cable TV and the other is ideal for reading books or chatting over coffee.

An adjacent dining area has a large table with seating for up to eight guests where you can play board games, plan out your days, or indulge in delicious, home-cooked meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.

In the center of the kitchen, there's a granite-topped island with five comfortable counter stools as well as a four-burner cooktop. This kitchen also comes with several cabinets and drawers stocked with essential cookware and dinnerware, plus a variety of appliances including a French door refrigerator, blender, ice maker, wall oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, and dishwasher. And if you want to have a family cookout, just fire up the three-burner gas grill located outside!

There are three cozy bedrooms in this home all of which are located on the same floor and offer plush king-size beds. The bunk room also has two twin bunks, a twin roll-out trundle, and there's an additional twin roll-away bed stored in the master bedroom closet. There is also a Pac-n-Play available for a little one. With three bedrooms and two full baths, this home sleeps up to 12 guests very comfortably. The family dogs are also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.

Get online and share updates about your trip with friends and family back home thanks to the free WiFi and keep up with your favorite shows and movies on the two flatscreen TVs. With the inclusion of a washer/dryer, you can leave those bulky suitcases home and start each day with fresh, clean clothes.

This unique rental offers a number of enviable options for home entertainment including a lower-level space with a foosball, ping-pong, and pool table for the kids. There's also a heated 10' x 14' still pool with wraparound sliding doors and windows. Or you can just relax outside with a mint julep on the covered, main floor balcony and enjoy the incredible view of the yard and the winding Colorado River.

The grassy yard, shaded by enormous pecan trees in the afternoon, is great for the kids and you can also splash in the river in a protected swimming area alongside the new dock and boathouse complete with boat lift. You can even spend a lazy afternoon fishing for bass or catfish right in your own backyard. The boathouse comes equipped with a stand-up paddle board, a large water mat, life vests for children and adults, a puddle jumper, and plenty of sliding and folding chairs.

Head up to Buchanan Lake, just nine miles away, for kayaking, lakeside picnics, boat tours, and fantastic hiking trails. Or spend your days over in Austin where there's always fun to be had. Whether you're visiting to check out the world-famous music scene, to take part in a number of festivals and other city-wide events including South by Southwest, the Austin Film Festival, and Fun Fun Fun Fest, there's always something exciting happening in Austin, just 70 miles from your front door.

Make this spacious, waterfront, Central Texas rental your home away from home for your next thrilling vacation in the Lone Star State!

About Vacasa of Texas

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife���s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The house had all we needed for a great family weekend. From the kitchen to the bathrooms to the toys for the lake. The only negative is that the lake is very busy, so if you just want to hang out and float by the dock, it is pretty rough with all of the waves and fishing is difficult due to this, as well. People don't seem to have manners on how far away they should be when passing a dock, so sometimes, the waves splashed up over the seawall. But, we had a great time, nonetheless.

Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and were so pleased with the spaciousness and cleanliness of the house. The fenced yard was great for our dog, as was the fact that the property gets evening shade, making the porch pleasant day end. We had trouble with the boat lift which was addressed most quickly by our boat rental company (not their issue SO we really appreciated it given we didn’t want to waste time with our rental). Please consider Splash Rentals for your business - thank you, Charles! But the homeowner did send someone out day of to complete the work on the lift, so no complaints.

The dock is nice - love the lillypad mat and life jackets available for use.

We highly recommend!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this property was clean and perfect for a family reunion. Pool table is only a tiny one for kids, ping pong table is on its last leg. The backyard and dock area were perfect for relaxing. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is stocked well.

We had a blast and loved this home. Very spacious and comfortable and had plenty of activities for everyone to participate in. Very convenient to store. Sitting on the dock was relaxing and fun watching all the boats go by. I highly recommend this rental!
