About Jane Harris

Texas family who loves the water and the Texas hill country. We searched for a house that was open, bright and had views and we found just the house we liked in Lago Vista. The deer are fun to watch from the balcony upstairs and it is nice and quiet out here. The location is great because it is on the north side of Lake Travis, which is the wide open side of the lake with less boat traffic and less people. Lago Vista Golf Club is 2 minutes away with one of the fairways across the street. The rates are so reasonable. This is a great weekend getaway for all ages.

Jane Harris purchased this house in 2007

Why Jane Harris chose Highland Lake Estates

Open floor plan is great with wonderful views of hill country and lake attracted us. It is also very quiet and restful with lots to do in the area.

What makes this house unique

Quiet end of Lake Travis, golfing, shopping, hiking and wineries! The vacant lot next door gives house more privacy and is great place to see all the deer from the balcony!

Beautiful, relaxing home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this beautiful home. We spent the entire weekend cooking, talking, watching movies and enjoying the beautiful deer on the front lawn. The house was clean and well appointed, the owner was lovely to work with and the listing was completely accurate. Thank you so much for making this lovely home available for rent. We hope to be able to stay there again someday.

Awesome place to stay while in Austin

  • 5 of 5

Six of us tennis teammates/moms/friends spent a most enjoyable weekend here. The accommodations were outstanding! Everything was very comfortable and very spacious and clean. We loved the upper floor patio, the family of deer below and the hummingbirds right in front of us! Next time, we will make plans to spend more time in Austin so we can hang out at this home more! Everything about it was great!

A friend of mine requested a quiet get-away by the lake where her closest friends could get together and just relax for her bachelorette party. This house was perfect for us! Besides, the amazing view, the deck was perfect for relaxing and grilling steaks! The entire house was clean, comfortable, and extremely quiet and well kept! I also must say that the owner was more than helpful and was a pleasure to rent from! My wedding will be coming up soon and I would love for my girls to take me back to this house for one weekend! Just an amazing place to sit back and have your GIRLS GET AWAY WEEKEND!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my brother and his family for 2 nights over Easter and loved the property. Nice lake views from the huge upstairs patio. The beds were very comfortable and the home is nicely appointed. The large kitchen was fully equipped and very functional.This makes a big difference. Other VRBO properties I have stayed in had nothing. Not ever salt and pepper. Thank you for sharing your home. It was a great place to stay!
