About Ricki Anne Dodd

Jamie and Mary Cotterell and Alan and Ricki Anne Dodd bought this property together in 2006. Jamie and Ricki are brother and sister and our families have always enjoyed doing things together, especially water sports. We loved the idea of a place big enough and with plenty of bedrooms for our families to get together. We just love coming to the lake, relaxing, hanging out with family and enjoying the lake, grilling and fishing.

We know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Jamie and Mary live in Cedar Park, TX and Alan and Ricki live in Kingwood, TX

Why Ricki Anne Dodd chose Lake Travis

Lake Travis is one of the most beautiful lakes in TX and we love the TX Hill country. We chose Point Venture because it is on the North side of the lake and closer to Cedar Park where Jamie and Mary live. The cove we are on is so nice and peaceful and has beautiful sunrises. Point Venture offers so many wonderful amenities like a 9-hole golf course, private park, basketball, play ground, covered pavilion, boat launch and hiking trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had such a swell time! All of us enjoyed ping pong, pool activities and your outstanding movie collection. The Super-Nintendo was especially a hit. Hanging out on our boat, playing cards and dominoes, and partying at The Gnarly Gar kept us extremely entertained. Your house provided a perfectly balanced environment of fun and relaxation, and our family could not have enjoyed our stay more.

Great for Family Reunions

  • 5 of 5

Very Clean, has everything needed if you wish to eat at home although there are so many places a person can boat to to eat. Just a block from the Marina, Park & Pool. Perfect because it has a boat dock which my son has at a different area on the lake but could dock at the house where we all stayed.! My husband and I, plus adult kids with their families were able to be together yet have separate area's, downstairs was perfect for grandkids and upstairs bedrooms were perfect for us and our kids whom still haven't taken the plunge on having children.

When we walked in it was breath taking. The pictures did not justify the beauty of the house.

  • 5 of 5

It was relaxing and exciting at the same time. We were on the lake and the walk was gorgeous. The house had 3 Separate floors which gave us our own privacy but plenty of areas to come together as a family to hang out. The house was clean and very accommodating for whatever we wanted to do. The community was safe and wonderful. The deer sightings were exciting and the community pool was in walking distance. The view at Day or night was to die for. We will definitely be returning especially with how easy and nice they made it to rent out. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Spacious with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

The property has loads of space and is very comfortable. The main floor deck has an amazing view. The ping pong table was a big hit. The owners are very accommodating and responsive. The only negative is all of the stairs down to the boat deck. Make sure to visit the private park. We had an amazing time.

Relaxing Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had it all! Perfect getaway from reality and RIGHT ON THE WATER! Had its own doc. My husband and I were able to easily pull our boat up to the side of the doc for use. All 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms made it super convenient so that everyone had their space. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook all of our meals. This place truly felt like home. The owners were very easy to work with and super accommodating. Thanks so much! we will be back next year! :)

Peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Well, first of all, it was really short notice to book the place. I called the day of and Mary got it ready for us right away. Mary is super easy to work with and made sure everything was good. The sunset on the deck is really nice. The rental itself has a lot of room for everyone. We had 6 people and it never felt crowded. The balcony was really great, which is where we spent half our time on. The rental has everything you need and it is located in a convenient part of the lake.

There's a restaurant called the Gnarly Gar, which is a minute away from the place. I took my boat there and docked it and in the morning had amazing water to wakeboard and surf. The other big thing I really liked, was the A/C was nice and cold which made it great for sleeping. If you want a place to gather, relax and convenient, this is the place.

I wish we could have stayed longer, felt like 2 days wasn't enough. There are too many things to do there to take advantage of the rental. We'll be coming back!! Thanks again Mary!

Absolutely perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 couples for the New Years week-end. This home is very well maintained, and very well equipped. We cooked a great multi-course dinner for 10 on New years Eve and had everything we needed. This home is well located, several stores and a big grocery store very close. Mary was wonderful to work with, answered any questions, and promptly returned our deposit. We will stay here again if in the area. Highly recommended.

Car: necessary

We are on a lovely protected cove on the North side of Lake Travis directly across from Lakeway. The Gnarly Gar Restaurant and marina is a short block away. The Members Only neighborhood pool, exercise facilities and library is also just a short block away. A card key to use these facilities is included.

We are 2 blocks from the Golf course and Pro shop. It is a wonderful 9-hole course that will awe you with the views and challenge your golfing skills all the while being watched by numerous White Tail Deer.

You will have access to a Members Only park less than a mile away where you can launch your boat, enjoy a great fresh water beach (when lake levels are low), grill, picnic, hike, play in the children's park or play basketball.

Other Activities: Boating, skiing, floating, fishing, wildlife viewing, basketball, hiking
