Description of the Lake Travis vacation home rental
Waterfront with Dock / Near Oasis / Close to downtown / Gated and private / HDTV's / Patios / Sleeps up to 10


The Palms on Lake Travis is a privately-owned, gated, high-end, resort vacation rental for those who wish to stay on Lake Travis. The Palms is conveniently located lakeside, 1 mile from the Oasis on the scenic Comanche Trail drive around the main basin of Lake Travis. This location is prime due to its proximity to the lake, to local attractions, and to downtown Austin.

There are two guest units on The Palms property that sleep up to 10 in total. For parties of 6 or less, we can offer the Garden House only at a lower cost.

The Garden House: Is tastefully furnished with 2 queen bedrooms with private balconies, walk-in closets, and flat screen TVs. It also has a queen sofa bed with an upgraded mattress to comfortably sleep up to 6 adults. It is equipped with a full kitchen, a large color HDTV with cable and free movie channels in the main living area, as well as a DVD player, stereo with CD player, washer and dryer, a private backyard leading to a preserve, and covered and uncovered patios with a grill, chiminea, and outdoor dining area.

The Lakefront Suite: Is on the same property just across the driveway from the Garden House. It is a couple's paradise with 1 king bedroom and queen sofa bed with an upgraded comfortable mattress to sleep up to 4 adults with 2 bathrooms. The master bath has a two person jacuzzi tub. The Suite comes with a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, flat screen HDTV's, DVD, a pool table, and a semi-private outdoor shower.

There is ample parking on the grounds... we can even park your boat trailer and boat(s) at the dock in the protected cove!

What makes this exclusive and private rental property more appealing is the Common Area with its lush landscaping and large patio overlooking the spacious backyard, the protected Cove with a dock, and the Lake Travis basin. In the Common Area, you will find a large gas grill, oversized hot tub that can double as a dipping pool, a fire pit, and a waterfall feature. We have provided a mosquito misting system (safe - ground chrysanthemums) to reduce mosquitos on the property.

A cove and covered dock is available to use for swimming, fishing, and sunbathing. A spider control system has been installed on the dock, to maintain a clean and spider-free location to enjoy on the water. Boaters may tie up to the dock with advanced notice. A public boat launch is located just across the main basin from us (you can see it from the property) at Mansfield Dam - it's about a 3 mile boat ride.

Please note that, due to our setup, we are unable to participate in weddings or other events with more than 25 total guests. We also have chosen not to participate in bachelor parties. We welcome out of town guests and family members of the bridal party to stay with us and will make sure they have a very enjoyable stay in Austin.

Be sure to check out our guest reviews on our main site - we have NUMEROUS PERFECT FIVE STAR guest reviews!

Area Information
The Palms is located on the main basin of Lake Travis, just 1 mile down the road from the Oasis, "The Sunset Capital of Texas". The basin is prime for those who want to enjoy Austin - it is only a 30 minute drive from downtown Austin and about a 35 minute drive to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

There are many activities to see and do while staying at The Palms. The Volente Beach Waterpark is located just down the lake and is great for children. There are several boat and watercraft rental locations nearby. We also have several fun restaurants around the lake that have a great atmosphere for boaters, including The Blue Parrot, Carlos 'n Charlies, Johnny Finns, The Pier/Gnarly Gar, Rough Hollow Grill, and Cafe Blue.

The Palms on Lake Travis

June 29, 2011

We recently spent a long weekend at the Palms on Lake Travis. The property itself is beautiful. Both the Lakeview Suite and the Garden House are furnished very nicely. They included a lot of basic supplies, so we didn't have to drag all that with us. The landscaping is beautiful. It was such a pleasure to sit on the terrace and enjoy the view. I definitely felt this property was above average as far as decor, landscaping and amenities.

My family and I stayed at the Palms for a weekend getaway and had a fabulous and relaxing time. We wanted to surprise my dad with a weekend on the lake for his retirement, and everyone in our group was beyond impressed when we arrived. It exceeded our expectations and we all have already discussed how we cant wait to come back again. The lake waters were very low from the drought so we didnt do much on the actual lake, but there was so much to do at the house, we didn't even notice. Robyn was VERY accommodating and greeted me as soon as I arrived. She gave me a tour of the property and a quick run down on how to operate all the lights, electronics, etc. She was so nice and thorough. There is also plenty of material printed out readily available for any questions you could have. They are very well prepared for guests. I was also very impressed with all the ammenities and things that were available when we arrived. Milk, bread, eggs, condiments, games, cooking supplies etc. We really didnt need to do much but relax! I recommend this lakefront property for ANYONE, families, friends, etc. I will be back!

The most fabulous vacation rental house

Review Submitted February 24, 2012 Date of Stay February 15, 2012
I have stayed in vacation rentals all over the world and this is the best house I have ever rented. The house itself is perfect, from the great layout, to upscale furniture, to fully stocked kitchen. You will find that this is just the beginning, Robin has thought of everything, from snacks to coffee to soap - you truly just need to bring yourself and maybe a swimsuit. The grounds are perfect, from the huge hottub to the hammock to the patio with heaters to fireplace - everything need to have a great vacation. My family had a wonderful time, want to move in and never leave. My kids chose an extra night at The Palms over a night in Sea World - if that doesn't say it all..... As great as the online site is, the actual property is better and Robin could not be a more perfect host. Leah Keeler & family/Portland OR

Labor Day on the Lake
Review Submitted September 25, 2011 Date of Stay September 2, 2011
We had a wonderful stay at The Palms on Lake Travis. We rented both the Garden House and Lake Front Suite for 3 couples and one single who slept on the pull-out sofa bed in the Garden House. There was plenty of space for everyone to have privacy and also gather for meals and fun. The property is stunning with amazing views of the lake. The outdoor common area is lovely with very comfortable loungers and umbrellas for shade. The property is clean and there is an abundance of supplies - kitchen, bath, noodles for the lake, etc. There was more to do (games, fishing, bocce ball) than we had time for in our long weekend! The owners were extremely responsive both leading up to and during our trip. They provided detailed information so that we knew exactly what to expect and to allow for our vacation to begin the moment we arrived. In fact, they greeted us on arrival and provided tips on local restaurants and music.

Review Submitted March 19, 2012 Date of Stay March 16, 2012
The Palms on Lake Travis has it all. We originally were looking for something in Down Town Austin but SXSW was in Full effect and we really Lucked out Finding The Palms. It was 20-25 Minutes from 6th Street witch was perfect. Rodney and Robin were great, they were quick on responding to my questions via text while we were staying and they even suggested great places to go for the night life. House is Amazing. I will be revisiting the palms in the near future. Thanks Guys had a blast. Noah Ray Sanders

Not enough can be said about The Palms....a magnificent place that I will recommend to every person going to Austin. The owners make you feel from the get go like you own the place. We rented both houses for graduation weekend in UT, and it was the best idea ever. Enough room for 7 adults and two kids. The premises, the views, the bedrooms, everything top notch and in excellent condition. Recommended 100%

Review Submitted July 15, 2012 Date of Stay June 28, 2012
I stayed there for a ladies weekend on June 28 - July 1. There were 10 of us; 6 in the Garden House and 4 in the Lake Front House. Robin met us upon arrival and showed us around both houses. She and Rodney both were very friendly and accommodating. One day we had scheduled a boating trip and they were so kind as to give us a ride to the boat marina. They also gave us a lot of privacy, even though they live on the property, we very seldom saw them. The property description and photos are very accurate, the place is absolutely gorgeous. I especially enjoyed all the beautiful lights around the property at night, very pretty. Both houses are stocked with all the listed amenities. There was plenty of bath and beach towels. The A/C worked great and plenty of hot water and good water pressure. I would highly recommend this place for families and friends. We had a wonderful time!

Weekend Getaway
Houston, Texas
Review Submitted July 10, 2012 Date of Stay July 6, 2012
After a great weekend at The Palms last year, my husband, myself, our two adult(20's) daughters and their spouses were eager to return. Due to unfortunate timing I arrived with my foot in a cast, getting around with my knee on a little scooter. By noon the next day Robin and Rodney had put a ramp in place to help me get up the steps, entirely on their own initiative. The landscaping and the grounds are beautiful with plenty of places to enjoy the view. Sitting on the terrace with a cup of coffee enjoying the view of the lake was the best part of the morning. Everything we needed was provided. This is a great place to spend some quality time with your family.
