STAY ON THE LAKE! CLOSEST TO TOWN! MAIN BASIN - NEAR DAM!
** IMPORTANT 2015 LAKE TRAVIS UPDATE **
Many potential guests are inquiring about the lake level and dock access. Lake Travis is still very usable for boating. There are no open public boat ramps, yet boats can still be rented from nearby marinas. Our main website has some listed on the Services tab. We are fortunate to have a movable dock, so that when the water level drops, we can move it out; and when the water level rises, we can move it back in. We always keep the the dock in 8-10 feet of water for swimming, fishing, and boating activities. Due to the lower water levels, we added stairs to make it easier for our guests to get to the bottom of the cove. They then walk across the cove and around the water's edge to board the dock. It is still very usable, but it is a longer walk. ~ Thank you!
Please submit inquiries with your information via the contact form or email for a faster response. We give priority to HomeAway or VRBO Contact Forms and email. We are unable to return all of the calls received. We do, however, strive to respond to written inquiries as soon as possible. Thank you for understanding!
** NOTE ** If a child is able to walk, then they are counted as one of the 10 guests. We have had some guests assume that their children don't count toward the total occupancy in the past because they are small. The only time that I child would not count toward occupancy is if it is a baby that has not yet started walking.
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 ('The Sunset Capital of Texas') on the scenic Comanche Trail drive around the main basin of Lake Travis. This location is prime for those who want to enjoy Austin - it is only a 30 minute drive to downtown Austin and about a 35 minute drive to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport!
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.
A cove and covered dock is available to use for swimming, fishing, and sunbathing. 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.

WEDDINGS AND EVENTS: 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 of any sort. We welcome out of town guests and family members of the bridal party to stay with us, and we will make every effort to ensure they have an extremely enjoyable stay in Austin!
On dates where we have a partial rental (Garden House Only or Lakefront Suite Only), and the other portion is available for rent, it will appear as a Tentative Rental on our calendar. On those dates, we will have availability left for smaller groups of 4-6 guests at a lower rate, depending upon which unit is already taken. Feel free to reach out and ask us about those dates.
Our preferred method of contact is the Request Form on HomeAway or email. We have day jobs and receive too many calls to return in a timely manner. We have found that we can respond to you much more quickly via email.

About: We live on the property. We are there if you need something, but otherwise we stay out of your way. You might see us in the driveway or walking down through the backyard to get to the dock. We have both traveled a lot, and we strive to make The Palms everything that we want when we travel.
Why Windy Point:
The Palms is located on the gorgeous Lake Travis main basin. Lake Travis is a rock lake, which means the water is generally a sparkly blue color (vs the brownish water found in a muddier lake). The cliffs around it add to the beauty of the area. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with a scenic view and privacy, this is the spot for you!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The main basin of Lake Travis is the closest area to downtown on the 65 mile lake. We are also conveniently located just a mile down the road from Oasis Texas, with several restaurants, shops, and live music! Since The Palms is on the main basin, we have a beautiful view of the lake, and you can walk down to the dock from the backyard! If you have a boat, you can even tie it up to the dock at no extra charge! We strive to provide everything you need for a relaxing getaway. We take care of condiments like salt, pepper, sugar, ketchup, mustard, mayo, pickles, butter, and jam. We provide all the fixin's for your first morning's breakfast (with a standard 2 night minimum rental) - coffee, eggs, milk, juice, and bread. A leisurely start is a great way to kickoff your time away. If you find you need other things, there is a grocery store about 3 miles away. The Palms is a very convenient and private lakeside retreat for couples, families, reunions, relaxing girls' weekends, and the like. We are always available to recommend nearby dining, suggest spa or golf locations, and provide ideas for fun activities for all ages. Many of our guests decide to just stay and enjoy property, and quite a few choose to extend their trips an extra day or two if availability permits.
