About Carol Hansen

Hi we are Rick and Carol Hansen, owners of The Urban Lodge on Lake Travis. We have two daughters who have graduated from college and one son who is a sophmore in college. We are both native Texans with Rick growing up in Houston and then graduating from the University of Texas in Austin and Carol growing up in New Braunfels and graduating from Texas State and then moving to Austin where she started her career. Rick is a computer software manager for a local company and Carol is an Austin realtor. We absolutely love all that Austin has to offer including the food, art and music scene and then of course, the outdoor active lifestyle with the lake being our favorite. Because both of us enjoy hospitality and entertaining and Carol loves the designing and decorating side and Rick loves the remodel side, it was a natural for us to start a VRBO.

We are both committed to making your experience fantastic and we hope you will fall in love with The Urban Lodge just as we have and have family memories that will last a lifetime!

Carol Hansen purchased this house in 2016

Why Carol Hansen chose Rocky Point

Austin is a special place to us and having found the perfect spot on the lake for a get away was a dream come true. Having deer roam the property and the lake as our back yard, we couldn't have asked for anything more. The sun setting behind the ridge while enjoying a glass of wine or waking up and watching the deer while drinking a cup of coffee is truly a blessing!

What makes this house unique

When we found this property we immediately fell in love with it and knew it would be a perfect lake get away with it's waterfront access and view and beautifully treed lot! The spiral staircase and loft make it cozy and fun. One of the best things about the property is the feeling that you have cut off from everything yet restaurants and shopping are only 10 minutes away and down town Austin is only 30 minutes away! It's the best of both worlds!

Great property, great managment for very reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot to get away. Nice extras provided that most rentals don’t.

Owner very responsive to questions.

Square footage may seem small, but we didn’t feel cramped at all. Covered patio a great place for meals and relaxing.

Would stay there again and recommend to others.

Fantastic property and fantastic owners made for the perfect Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this property back in December for our Spring Break sight unseen and so glad we did. The house itself was the perfect size for our two small families. The loft upstairs couldn't have been designed better for our kids (ages 5-12). The owners have thought of everything you might need with tons of extras. And I mean everything! All we had to remember were our clothes and groceries.

The grounds are well maintained with sitting areas and fire pits seemingly everywhere. We rented a pontoon boat about 15-20 minutes away by water and were able to dock at the house without issue. The scenery is breathtaking and made for a very relaxing vacation. Last but certainly not least, we couldn't speak more highly of the owners. They were easy to get a hold of and they were very kind, accommodating, and cheerful. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your home! The kids can't wait to go back :)
