Great party house!
As one of our guests remarked upon walking in - "the house knows what it was built for." And it is great for it! It has a lot of beds in a windy, somewhat confusing layout. It is a beautiful location and great for bachelor/bachelorette parties. It is ~35-40 min from downtown Austin.
My only response is yes it is 30 minutes from downtown during rush hour 4 pm to 6 pm, however it is only 20 minutes from downtown outside rush hour. I am talking about from the house to 6th street which is downtown and where the bars are. I have driven it in less than 20 minutes.
It's an excellent house for a guys' weekend on the lake--lots of privacy and bunks. The dock and waterslide are functional at the bottom of the hill. Local boat rentals will pick you up on the dock.
The house is a 30 min Uber to downtown.
Good house for a bachelor party
Great house for enough sleeping accommodations and living space. Outdoor area has a great view and is definitely a good area to hang out. That being said, the house is a probably a decade or two past it's hay day - so perfect for a bachelor party, but wouldn't recommend for a luxury family vacation.
Host was easy to communicate with and very accommodating - we had no issues.
Fun House on Lake Austin
We had a great family vacation at Sam's house. The house was plenty big enough for a Big Family. We had plans to go sight seeing around town, but we enjoyed ourselves so much at the home that we never really left except to go get groceries once in 7 days.
We had a great time on the dock, renting the pontoon boat, enjoying the pool, sitting and chatting on the top deck, the kitchen area just cooking and hanging out and the whole house in general.
Sam was great in answering the phone and returning calls prior to our arrival. Once we arrived we never really had any other questions and we enjoyed ourselves the whole time.
Great stay on Lake Austin. Group of 11. We couldn't have asked for a better location on the water. Clean, great views.
Great House For a Group!
House was awesome, plenty of room inside and great accomodations outside. House is right on the water and the dock/slide/diving board makes for a good time. Sam was easy to deal with and checking in and out was very simple. Overall would recommend.
