About David Pikoff

I have lived in Austin since 1982. Fun fact, I was on the TV show Shark Tank a few years ago :-)

David Pikoff purchased this house in 2016

Why David Pikoff chose Austin

This property is lovingly named after my mother, Sandy Pikoff. Camp Sandy is all about enjoying life and making happy memories with ones that you love. My mom did lots of charity work, so in her honor we are committed to sharing this beautiful property with groups of foster care kids on a regular basis, and donating a portion of our income to the local foster care community. It is a truly unique and beautiful property. I have added lots of amenities and will continue to build this into an amazing place for people to make life-long memories. I hope and expect that people will fall in love with this place and come back each year.

What makes this house unique

The home and all 4+ acres are very well maintained and beautifully taken care of.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is absolutely amazing. From the minute you step foot on the property, you are memorized by the beauty and all the different things that you can do. We felt like we owned our own summer camp resort for the weekend. During the day, we enjoyed playing sand volleyball, kayaking, and paddle boarding. At night, we enjoyed the cozy fire pit by the waters edge after a fun picnic in the middle of the woods. The house was much bigger and prettier than in the pictures, we were very comfortable. The owner went the extra mile to make sure our experience was fabulous. My family, my friends, and I are already planning our next stay at this unique property.

Terrific Experience

  • 5 of 5

David was extremely helpful in supporting our visit. This property had everything we needed for a great lake trip. There are tons of activities to do and the property is tucked away and private. The outdoor patio and cooking areas were perfect for spending the entire day outside. I highly recommend this property for large groups and will return.

Our group was 14 in size traveling from Phoenix for Golf, drinks, dinners, and SXSW. This place hit the mark. The focus of the property is outside activities. Corn hole, horse shoes, kayaking, canoe, slingshot, bar and large campfire ring. Large open area (kitchen, family, dining) with large deck 2nd floor with view of lake and property. 4 private bedrooms and 2 rooms with bunk beds. Overall, a great experience.

Perfect place for a family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all!! We couldn't believe all of the little details that the owner has put into this amazing vacation home. The house was perfect to fit our whole family with many different bedroom options. The house was clean and exactly what we needed. The best part of this location is the outside. It has anything and everything a family could want or need. Here are just a few of the things we loved: outdoor pavilion with a grill, refrigerator and bar; the stand up paddle boards; canoe; easy access to boat rental; sand volleyball; fire pit with amazing sunset views; the new obstacle course and the adults LOVED that the kids could be doing all of this while we lounged in the chairs with a clear view of them at all times. This place is amazing. We will definitely be going back. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. He made it very easy for us to have a great week! This house is located within 5 minutes of a grocery store, many restaurants, Target, etc. I highly recommend this place for not only a family vacation but also an adult getaway! So many wonderful little details made this a 5-star house!

Fun for Everyone!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to rent with out of town friends and big family. Camp Sandy has something for everyone. So many activities for kids all ages. The owner David is an amazing guy and one of the best host we have met. My fav is the giant hanging day bed. Highly recommend this place for corporate events or private get togethers.

As much as I would like to keep this beautiful place a secret, I realize that would be so unfair to anyone looking for the BEST little escape on the lake. We loved that is was right on the water and so close to so many great restaurants.

The host David was great, he welcomed us to the property and made sure we had everything we needed to settle in, even provided us with an extra phone charger since we forgot ours at home! ;)

The property was clean and well maintained, we would love to go back and highly recommend this anyone else looking for such a wonderful place on lake travis.
