Why Terry chose Highland Lake Estates

The Gatehouse used to be the management office for The Island Resort. After purchasing, the office was remolded into a gorgeous 3 bedroom vacation house that spans the entrance to The Island.

What makes this house unique

The Gatehouse has all the comforts of a resort community while also providing a private get-away with panoramic views of Lake Travis.

Great property for families looking to relax!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited this property from May 1st to May 4th, 2017. We had a very positive experience! To begin, the rates are extremely reasonable. We have three young children (1, 2, and 7 years old) and a hotel is not ideal when traveling with the many things you need with little ones such as strollers, pack 'n plays, diaper bags, toys, booster seats/high chairs, etc., so staying in a house made our visit very comfortable! The layout of the house is a HUGE plus! The secondary bedrooms are spacious though separate from the master area so once the little ones are in bed, as adults, you can watch a movie, have a glass of wine, wind down together, etc. Our initial impression of the house was very positive: clean, well stocked, and decorated very well! I would describe it as modern with the comforts of home. My favorite part of the house is the kitchen - plenty of dishes, cookware and awesome appliances to use. We also loved the many balconies. We spent time outdoors and also visiting all three pools (lol!) as well as checking out hiking and local eateries. When you arrive, there is a handy dandy binder full of things such as where to rent a boat, kayak, or bike, some good restaurants and also things like the wifi password and information about the spa. All in all, we would certainly return either just as a couple or with the little ones again. This location could also be great for bridal parties or a girls weekend away, for sure! We hope to visit again!

Amazing getaway with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the gatehouse for 2 nights for a bachelorette weekend. The house was extremely clean and very spacious! The sunset views are incredible and the surround sound makes for a perfect environment for fun. The deer around the property are so peaceful to watch and had it been warmer the water access is extremely close and very accessible. The house was well stocked with towels and linens which was great. Terry was wonderful to communicate with and extremely helpful. We loved this place so much and did not want to leave !! Will recommend and will definitely be back.

Quirky but fun

  • 4 of 5

This was a last minute reservation because our or Final vacation plans to the Florida gulf were curtailed by Hurricanes and evacuations. We chose this because the reviews said it was well setup and the pictures were great. The last few guests must have put a big dent in supplies. The situation was corrected over the week by Terry who was very responsive. There was another minor issue that was repaired quickly --houses have things that break from time to time so no problem there. It can't be helped.

It would have been great if the outdoor areas had views you could enjoy while seated, but that's probably nothing that can be fixed. We enjoyed the sunsets each evening anyway. We used hot tub at condos and that was nice. We also enjoyed the Karaoke at the club....the locals go all in and it was fun.

We were wondering if the gate below us would be a distraction, but it never was. It turned out to be kind of fun. The deer in the area were also a great feature.
