Property description

This hilltop brick home features a fantastic front porch with rocking chairs & spectacular lake views. Our ranch style, one-story property is handicap accessible and the open gourmet kitchen offers the best view in the house. The warm living area with mounted plasma tv and fireplace is the perfect respite for family and friends. The spacious master suite, office (free wi-fi) and laundry are located on one side of the house, with 2 guest rooms and bath located on the other. There are porches on the front and the back of the house and plenty of parking.
We are located inside a gated, golf course community and the home is directly across from a private park with a playground, basketball court, picnic tables and boat launching facilities. Our lakefront restaurant, The Gnarly Gar (www.gnarlygar.com), is a golf cart ride and is open during the summer with live music on weekends. There is a fitness center, 9-hole golf course, tennis courts & Olympic size swimming pool. Something for all!


Activities by Water and Land: Don't have a boat? Rent one, or better yet, a jet ski and get out on the water to enjoy the best of Lake Travis. Need a change of pace or maybe you just like to stay dry? Bring your fishing pole, golf clubs, tennis racquet or sense of adventure and never leave land.

Your workout routine needn't suffer either, with the pool and workout room accessible to our guests.

Wining and Dining: Many guests prefer to hit the grocery store once and cookout with their families. But for those of you who like to explore the other options, there are some good ones from which to choose.


By land: Back up the hill in Lago Vista is Maria's Mexican Cantina (delicious), J&J's BBQ, Wok n' Grill and our favorite - Parrain's Louisiana Kitchen for true Cajun cuisine. About 20 minutes toward Marble Falls is the beautiful Flat Creek Estate Winery that serves lunch/brunch Friday through Sunday from 11-4 and features a 3- course paired menu for somewhere in the vicinity of $50 per person. Delicious. If you love live music, Rumi's Tavern in Jonestown is sure to delight… will definitely have the game on and you can even shoot a round of pool. Fun, local flavor.

Car: Recommended

Point Venture Resort is located on the North Shore of Lake Travis, approximately 30 minutes from Northwest Austin and 45 minutes from ABIA. The property is roughly 40 miles from Marble Falls and near a beautiful destination winery, Flat Creek Estate. The community resides on a peninsula jutting out into Lake Travis and by water is not far from popular lake locations like Rough Hollow Marina (and the Grille at Rough Hollow), The Lakeway Inn & Spa and the Reserve. Right up the road in Jonestown we have terrific live music at Rumi's Tavern and unbelievable Cajun cuisine at Parrain's Louisiana Kitchen. There is a white sand beach located within a gated park that's perfect for relaxing by land and enjoying the lake without a boat or jetski.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2010

About: This is one of two family-owned properties - not only in Point Venture, but on the SAME street. We really love this area and know it is a great place for all kinds of travelers. Several years ago we decided to add our home to the vacation rental pool part-time and it's worked out really well for us and our very happy renters.

Why Point Venture:
This unique, one-story traditional sits atop a hill and when I saw the rocking chairs out front, perfectly positioned to take in the sunset, I knew it was special. There are many unique touches throughout; the home really appealed to my love for design and turning each room into it's own inviting space was right up my alley.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Front and back porches mean that no matter where the sun is shining down, you can comfortably enjoy lounging outside. Cook a spectacular meal in the gourmet kitchen or out on the grill steps away on the patio. With the master suite on one end of the home, guests can enjoy privacy while the others are right down the hall. In 3 years of renting, we've had nothing but happy customers and strive to make sure we keep that stellar reputation and a special place to stay again and again.
