Fabulous lake house
We had a great time at this beautiful lake house! The decor is lovely and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to prepare a meal. The screened in porch was lovely at night to stay bug free, but we loved the patio as well. Floating of the dock was a bit rough since the lake was pretty busy still super fun! Rhonda responded quickly to all questions. I highly recommend this house!
One suggestion, the rooms get pretty bright in the morning, so bring a eye mask if you want to sleep in!
Perfectly Appointed Lakehouse
This house was perfect for our little weekend getaway. Each room was adorable, the beds were incredibly comfortable and the whole space is so beautifully decorated. We would 100% stay in this home again. Thank you, Ronda!
Great house on Lake Austin
The house is in wonderful condition, clearly newly remodeled. Location is great - right on Lake Austin. Our kids had a blast jumping off the boat dock into the lake and taking the kayak on the water. Ronda was very responsive to our questions while we were there. The only caution I would mention is that the queen beds in the guest rooms felt small to us. We had young children sharing beds, so it was fine for us, but if you had two adults sharing a bed, it would have been a little tight. Overall: very pleased with the house and would definitely recommend it to others.
This lovely property, nestled into a quiet bend of Lake Austin, makes you feel as if you're lightyears away from the heart of Austin. It's beautiful decorated, but maintains a homey feeling. The property is 70% deck: there's the screened in porch for bug free dinners, the large upper deck for grilling and "hammocking", the upper boat deck for sunbathing, and the lower water deck for lounging in the water. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and silverware. The beds and bedrooms were immaculate, we wish we had the same beds and comforters in our own home.
13/10 would stay again!
Spectacular setting and beautiful well equipped house!!!
My family of 6 spent 4 wonderful nights on beautiful Lake Austin. Everything was just perfect and the house very well equipped and beautifully decorated with brand new appliances throughout. The kayaks and the floats made it easy to enjoy the lake on a warm day. We did not want to leave this exquisite oasis and will plan on returning at the first chance we get .
Lake Austin Vacation
This was our first time to use the Homeaway or any similar site, and I must say it was a fantastic experience. From the site, the APP and the owner's assistance.
The accomodations were excellent, the location was super and we enjoyed every minute.
Everything was top-notch with one exception... While the furnishings, inside and out were very nice, appointments were tasteful and the quality was obvious, the family room furniture was cheap, stained, uncomfortable and really not inviting. We often like to finish a day with a family movie, and this family room was a serious disappointment. The room was huge, plenty big to handle any furniture, but what was provided was so contradictory to the rest of the house.
Despite that, we loved the house, the decks, the screened porch was the biggest hit of all and where we spent so much time.
This was a winner of a vacation and we are already planning when we might return.
