About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7 plus futon, twin sleeper sofa & air beds)

Montina Beach is one of a few properties on Lake Travis with a gradual slope to the water. The park like setting from the beach area has been described by a real estate appraiser as the 'FINEST LAND on Lake Travis.' The view looks out across one of the largest areas of the lake with some of the largest hills in the Texas Hill Country as the backdrop. You will find this lake front area much more scenic than anything in Lakeway due to the larger lake area and the bigger hills; and much closer to town/amenities than Briarcliff or Lago Vista.

The beach area is large and covered mostly with grass. There is a large rock bon fire pit for those special evenings with friends. Yes, wood is supplied complimentary. There is also a grass volleyball court for your energetic gatherings with friends.

The property is located on the highly desirable south shore of Lake Travis, close to Austin's vibrant lifestyle and near all the amenities you desire from the finest in shopping at the new Hill Country Galleria and Lakeline Mall to great restaurants including Hudson's on the Bend, Rocco's, The Grove, Steiner Ranch Steak House, The Oasis, Mesa Rosa and Hill Country Pasta House. There are six exceptional golf courses within ten minutes drive. The house is located on approximately six acres with another house that the owners live in.

Austin's legendary night life must certainly be experienced if you have never been to downtown Austin at night. The house is a great place to stay with friends when in town to watch the exceptional athletic programs of the University of Texas Longhorns. It is about a 25 minute drive to downtown or the UT campus.

Boat and jet ski rentals are available nearby; or launch your own at a nearby marina and park it at the dock on premises. Spend a day wakeboarding, water skiing or parasailing. Yes, they will pick you up right on your boat dock to go parasailing! If you are young enough in spirit, you may also want to venture into Devil's Cove for one of America's biggest parties every summer weekend - it is a five minute boat ride away.

The house has a wonderful open design. The kitchen, living room, breakfast area and dining room are all combined in a very large area without walls that makes for a great social gathering point. There are two outdoor living areas for your enjoyment. One bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath. The second master bedroom has a queen bed and also a private bath and must be accessed either through its own private entrance from the outside or by going through the third smaller bedroom. The small bedroom has a full size bed and a pull-out twin bed that recesses under the full size bed. The smaller third bedroom has access to a third, common area bathroom. A comfortable futon is located in an area of the great room and a twin bed sleeper sofa is also available in the living area. All bedrooms have televisions.

Please note that photos were taken with the lake level at a more normal level and the lake levels can fluctuate from drought to floods. Please ask the owner if you want to know the relative lake level.

There is nothing like a sunset boat cruise and dinner at a waterfront restaurant, then a leisurely moon light boat cruise back home.

25 Minutes from Downtown Austin.

Why the Owner Chose Austin, TX, USA:
You will love the vast wide open feel of the beach with its absolutely spectacular view, which is framed by some of the largest hills in the Texas Hill Country.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is located on Lake Travis but close enough to downtown Austin, the University of Texas and the many lake area activities to make it convenient to nightlife and UT sports and places such as The Oasis or the Hill Country Galleria. Choose a peaceful evening under the stars or all the action you want at the places above.
