“Lovely Home, Lovely Owners!”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2016

I planned an intimate weekend getaway for my husband's birthday with a few of our friends and this property was perfect! The Bakers were very accommodating and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. The upstairs bedrooms and bathroom were cozier than I expected but our friends had no complaints about it. We rented kayaks and paddle boards from a local vendor and were minutes from the water. We spent the rest of our time lounging around the house and trying to feed the deer that surrounded the property (unsuccessfully I might add lol). I would recommend this property for anyone looking for a laid back trip in Austin - we had a great time!

Owner's reply: It was such a pleasure working with you on your stay! It's nice to hear that you liked the direct access to the water, and you rented kayaks & paddle boards from our nearby vendor! We are so glad you enjoyed your visit!

“Nice Location”

This condo was in a great location. Easy access to the lake and plenty of room in the condo. Very good communication while planning trip. Lots of attention to detail.

Owner's reply: Thank you Tom! So glad you liked the location and that y'all had plenty of room!. Thanks for taking such good care of the place! We really enjoyed having your group stay!

“Fabulous!”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2016

We just spent 6 glorious days at this location! The view and accommodations are as described and so much more. The townhouse was stocked with all of your necessities minus food and the location couldn't have been better. We had the cove to ourselves for the entire stay which was like having your own private oasis and the deer are plentiful. We had 24 right at the back deck on one night and 21 on the other. Deer feed was provided so they liked to hang around. We will definitely book here again next year when we come to visit our son who manages Zaxby's in Cedar Park and Round Rock, so be sure to try one of those locations out while your in the area. I can't say enough about David & Bobbi Baker, they were so easy to work with and they don't sell you any misleading information.

Owner's reply: Thank you Stephanie! We are so glad you enjoyed the location. Thank you for being so pleasant to work with! We would love to have you come for another visit ..... and bring Harley too! P.S. We heard the food at Zaxby's was really good, so we will definitely be stopping by the Cedar Park location!

“Loved this rental and the area!”

Reviewed 28 May 2016

Stop looking and book this rental now. You will not be disappointed. David and Bobbi were wonderful in answering all my questions before I booked. This home is in a great location with beautiful views of the lake. It is very quiet and in a very safe area. The house looks even better than the pictures if that's possible. The house was well stocked with things such as spices as well as pots and pans if you wanted to cook. The house also had shampoo and soap in both bathrooms. There were plenty of towels too. The laundry room was also well stocked. We loved this house and the area. Hope to return in the future!

Owner's reply: It was such a pleasure to work with you Jackie, and we are so glad that you enjoyed the home and the area! We love the area too, and we like to stock it with all the comforts of home, so that families feel like they have "a home away from home"! Thank you for choosing our vacation home, and we would love for y'all to come back for another visit!

“Wonderful, private lake front townhouse!”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2016

We have just returned to the snow of Buffalo NY from an amazing week on Lake Travis! The location and the property were wonderful. Being on the end, the townhouse was nicely private. There was large grass area/park that provided a great space for our grandchildren to play. The townhouse was exactly as seen in the photos on line. The owners, David & Bobbi, have stocked the house with too many amenities to mention them all. Some include DVDs, games. toys, paper products, and lots of towels and bedding. They even supply deer feed so feeding the deer became a nightly ritual for our grandchildren. The lake views from both decks on the property were great!. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the 2nd floor deck at night. Within walking distance was the community pool, tennis courts, playground and the Gnarly Gar restaurant/bar. David & Bobbi were very easy to work with. They were quick to respond to emails and gave helpful suggestions about the area. We will definitely be booking with them again. It was the perfect spot for our mini family reunion as two of our children now live in Texas.

Owner's reply: We are so pleased that you had an Amazing time with your family at the Lake! We too, like relaxing on that top deck, especially at night, with the array of lights in the marina, & surrounding hill country. We are glad you enjoyed the amenities, and that your grandkids liked feeding all the deer that visit quite frequently! It was such a pleasure working with you, Christine, and we hope that your family comes back for some more memories at the Lake!

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2015

The view was as beautiful as described. This townhouse was very clean, and quite functional. It provided everything that satisfied our 3 day stay. Bobbi went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. We especially appreciated the list of helpful hints we received to help us find our way around as well as the personal call from her which made for an exceptional stay. This place is tops on our list for future visits to Lake Travis and one that we will be sure to recommend to others.

Owner's reply: I am so glad you enjoyed the view, and your stay! I know how concerned you were about your mom and other guests being comfortable. I got a kick out of you telling me that when you first arrived your mom wasted no time claiming the rocking chair out on the deck for herself! You and your husband are such a fun couple and made me laugh, and I appreciated your feedback! I hope you come and visit again next time you need to get away to the lake!

“Great!”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2015

The place is at a perfect spot on the lake. there is a dock you can tie your boat to. there is a great restaurant that has live music within a stones throw from the lake. you couldn't ask for nicer owners to work with. you can feed the deer from the back porch. the place is well kept and clean.

Owner's reply: We are so pleased the place worked out for you and your family....since we are new to vacation rentals, we really appreciate how you worked with us! I am glad the dock was convenient for you to park your boat and jet ski! We too, enjoy the live music from the floating restaurant "Gnarly Gar", and it's fun throwing our french fries to the huge catfish that hang out there! We sure hope you come back to stay!
