Wonderful Family Vacation!

We had an amazing family vacation at the Lake Travis property. The property is beautiful and Tom, the host, was great. We came w/ our 5 kids ranging from 11 to 20. You really feel like you are far away in the country yet it was still very close to several grocery stores and downtown Austin. We hiked, BBQ and spent quality family time, which is hard to get as the kids get older. There are several animals on the property, which made it fun. Two friendly Australian Sheppard’s, two white peacocks and several chickens. Tom brought fresh eggs and the kids we go out every morning to feed the chickens. We have stayed at other Lake Travis properties but this one was our favorite and for sure will be back.

The house and grounds are absolutely stunning.


Tom is a great host and we were welcomed with a beautifully manicured lawn, lit trees and a great view of Lake Travis. Located high on a hill, you can sit in the living room and watch the boats through the huge windows and glass sliding doors. We opted to pack an ice chest full of food and cook during our stay; the kitchen is stocked with whatever utensil, pot, pan or cup you’d ever need. The weekend was the best I could have asked for, not only was the house beautiful, we ended up getting engaged on the lawn Saturday evening. I couldn’t have imaged a better place to share such a special moment.

Fantastic vacation spot


We spent a week in June 2010 and were thoroughly pleased with the home, spectacular views and all the surrounding fun things to do. We had four children 6 and under and had no trouble keeping them entertained away from the house, it was a little harder while at the home because the house sits high on a cliff and there was really nothing for them to do outside. Lake Travis is an awesome place for boating fun and Volente Beach which is a small water park turned out to have some really fun rides. And the owners were super nice and very accommodating.

Excellent rental, Excellent hosts!


Our experience at this Lake Travis home was beyond our expectations. The home is wonderful and the location provides country relaxation with easy access to Austin and surrounding communities. We easily did day trips to Fredrickburg and San Antonio and returning home was always a relaxing end to the day. Fresh eggs and vegetables, acerage for morning or evening walks and the respectful and accomodating hosts were all bonus touches that made our vacation one of the best we have ever had. If you have a chance to rent this home, take it!
