“Incredible Vacation Home!”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2016

Thank you for the opportunity to spend some time with my family at one of the nicest vacation homes we've ever stayed at! The house had everything to include a enticing, wonderful, cozy atmosphere on the Colorado River that literally mesmerized everyone's attention. Can't wait to bring my family back and do it all over again!

Owner's reply: ...we are so glad to have your family spend time at our Lakehouse. Thanks again for choosing our place! You all are wonderful guests and we hope you will return soon.

“Great Getaway”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2016

My husband, three daughters, grandkids and I had a wonderful vacation! We were there 3 days and 2 nights. It was just enough time. We all throughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is extremely comfortable and outside is amazingly relaxing. The kids played all day. Between the slide, the rafts and the kayaks the kids were busy all day. We will definitely be back!

Owner's reply: Thank you Kim for the nice note! We were so glad when you called and said your friend had rented our place and that you all wanted to stay for a weekend too! We knew you all would be a great family who would take care of the house and really enjoy the lake amenities. We sincerely hope you will return and bring more friends and family! Best, John & Sharon

“Even better than we expected!!”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2016

The pictures don't do it justice! Everything about the Lake House was perfect, they literally had every thing we needed, even drinking water. The water slide was awesome and made the lake even better. We had 5 adults and two children and we fit very comfortably in the house. Our family made beautiful memories and we can't wait to come back a make more!

Owner's reply: We are so glad that your family spent your vacation together at our place. Making the special memories is what it is all about! Your note made our day!!!

“Work Vacay”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2016

This property gave me the place to get away to do some work and still have some fun with my kids. Wifi was excellent. The slide was a big hit!! And then getting caught up on VHS movies in the evening . The location was perfect. I didn't get to go try the Oasis for dinner. I heard it's a must and the sunset is gorgeous. We will be back.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the nice review! You all are awesome guests! The house was left very clean and tidy and we particularly appreciated your nice texts about how much fun you all were having!

“Wonderful”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2016

This place is outstanding. The house, an open space, comfortable, good size kitchen to cook and entertain at the same time. A cozy little room upstairs to watch the lake and take a nap. Downstairs, very nice rooms for the family and friends to stay and enjoy the lake too. TV, games, movies to your choice for a good time. The lake can't be better, with many activities to pass the day at summer time. We enjoy it very much just looking at. A very quiet, cool day, 31rst of December, still, someone was kayaking. Awesome! The owner was very friendly and easy to talk too. She tried to make us feel at home and very helpful. Definitively we are going to comeback.. Carmen & David Brown

Owner's reply: Thank you so much - you all were wonderful guests! We would love to have you back this summer!

“Fun Vacation Home”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2013

We enjoyed our stay at this spacious lake house with all the comforts and amenities of home. Loved kayaking early morning and evening and swimming in the lake, even a water slide for those daring to go down and ropes to swing off of into the lake. Five decks to enjoy the view of the lake and trees surrounding the property for shade. A must vacation for those seeking a fun getaway.

Owner's reply: thanks Margaret - you and David were really great guests! The house was left super clean and I enjoyed meeting you both! You are the ideal guests for any vacation house

“Lakehouse Review”

Reviewed 26 Dec 2012

We wanted to get away with some friends before Christmas but did not want to go too far. The lake house in Austin was perfect for our needs. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to go back again during the summer to enjoy the outside activities more.

“Getaway full of charm and relaxation”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2010

This place has it all! Great waterfront property with multiple decks, lots of sleeping space, and a cozy home-like feel. Plenty amenities keep you busy like the water slide, hot tub, kayaks, board games, tv/dvd, and of course lounge chairs to relax in. I just took my second trip to this lake house and I will definitely visit again.
