About the property

Private Lake Oasis Sleeps 12+

Bask in the glory of beautiful Lake Travis on this private peninsula, which boasts 800+ feet of direct lake access and panoramic views of the water against an Austin hill country backdrop. Whether you seek a quiet retreat with family and friends or you’re looking for the perfect place to host an entertaining weekend with an out-of-town crowd, our piece of lakeside paradise is sure to “wow.” Nestled on 1.6 acres of private land, the Tres Aguas lakehouse is equipt to sleep up to 12 guests, and includes plenty of comfortable lounging space with lake views from every room. Be sure to look up at night, as our location - though just 20 minutes from downtown Austin - is just far enough from the city lights to enjoy a ‘stellar’ stargazing experience.

Access to everything from fine dining to fast casual and grocery stores all located within 5 miles of the property. *List of our top recommendations for local eats is available upon request* Grill up something delicious while you hang with your people by the water! You’ll find the Weber Genesis PROPANE GRILL under the covered pavilion on the lower (sand beach) level of the property.

ON-SITE FUN: listen to your own music via the Polk Audio outdoor sound system, swim in the lake (we hooked it up with a GIANT LILYPAD) or cruise around on the water in the kayaks, soak in the HOT TUB (brand new in Dec 2017), enjoy all kinds of activities on the large private sand beach, play cornhole, football, frisbee, etc...And of course, what is a vacation spot without a BONFIRE? We load you up with plenty of [complimentary] wood so you can easily ‘fire it up,’ then gather around to make s’mores and watch the most amazing sunset over the lake. ADDITIONALLY, rent our 2 brand new (2017) SeaDoo Sparx jetskis and we’ll deliever them to you on the property via the water.

BYOBoat: Want to bring your own boat? Go for it! There’s a private neighborhood ramp conveniently located just 2 lots away.

PETS: Forget boarding your four-legged friends, bring the dogs along! We’re also dog people and don’t discriminate on breeds or sizes.

WE LOVE SPECIAL EVENTS! Visualizing our space as the perfect venue for your next party, dreamy lakeside wedding or other special event!? We’d love to work with you - send us a *special request*!

BACHELOR AND BACHELORETTE PARTIES ARE WELCOME! Between all that Lake Travis offers by day and our convenient access (20 min drive) to downtown Austin for your nights on the town - Tres Aguas is the PERFECT SPOT for your big weekend. Party barges can pick up on-site, party buses for transit into town and back.

AREA: Approximately 17 miles from downtown Austin, 28 miles from the Austin Bergstrom International Airport, 34 miles from the Circuit of Americas F-1 Racetrack, 2.5 miles to The Oasis on Lake Travis.

Fantastic weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic. I cannot recommend it enough. Besides the breathtaking view of Lake Travis and top notch amenities the owner was accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for a memorable weekend. Most of our time was spent around the fire pit on the private beach landing right on the water. We enjoyed the kayaks and the hot tub on the back deck. The location is fantastic as well close to breweries and great restaurants. It’s also a short drive to Austin proper.

I am already planning another trip. Do yourself a favor and use this property as your next lake getaway.

It’s as if time stops when you walk on site

  • 5 of 5

The moment you pull down the drive you’re taken to a place of beauty. Private beach, enormous lawn, and tons of room to sleep, this place has what you need to enjoy a great weekend whatever the occasion. The owner is very accommodating and quick to respond to any questions. Hands down 5 stars.

Incredible Property - One of a kind

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about my stay at Tres Aguas. The house is clean, quiet and the beach provided a great place to just relax and reflect. The bathroom is private and very comfortable. It is near the Oasis, area parks and the drive to the property is very scenic. The location is very quick to the airport because the routing circumvents the heavily trafficked routes. The hosts are very accommodating and this stay exceeded my expectations so much i have booked my next visit here.Highly recommended.

Beautiful lake views and outdoor fun

  • 4 of 5

I would give 5 stars for the exterior, lake view. Being outdoors during spring break was fabulous. We did some kayaking, hammock lazing, fire pit chilling, hot tubbing and outdoor grilling. People loved coming over to spend a few hours with us in the evenings; come here for the views and the privacy.

The house I would give 3 star. There really is only 2 bedrooms rather than the advertised 3 (the 3rd bedroom is a den we were unable to curtain off).

There is a good Randells grocery store about 0.5 miles away, so we could easily remedy what we were missing and the owners were happy to bring things to us if needed.

So very close to a 5 star except for those few items around the house. We would come back again.

Suggestions for an improved guest experience would be to ensure there are enough adult life jackets for the kayaks on-prem, include information about how to reset the breakers for the hot water in the information packet, how to turn off the outside lights, provide a recycling container for the inside (or close to the house), provide tools for the fire pit along with some fire starters and/or kindling (or mention to guests to bring their own).
