About the property

Quiet Retreat 2/2, One w/ King bed, one with Queen,

*Serious Inquiries Only Please-

*MONTHLY or more ONLY.

*The House is NOT for Sale.

*No Agents Please

This spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath lake house on West Lake drive was originally designed as a Frank Loyd Wright inspired Summer house. Every room has windows on three sides with the lake visible from every room. Lake Austin combines the convenience of an in-town location with the certainty of a constant level lake.

Relax on the large sundeck out the back door, or walk across the beautifully kept lawn to the hammock, or down to the lake. Cookout on the grill or drive 10 minutes into the middle of downtown Austin for all the restaurants and attractions of 6th Street or South Congress.

Barton Springs, Deep Eddy, Hippy Hollow and several greenbelts are all within a 10 minute drive as well. The house sits just about in the geographic center of Austin.

Boating : There is a boat dock on the property. The slip is occupied, but renters may tie boats to the dock on the side. There is a public boatramp about 3 miles from the house. The driveway is circular and although tight, is a good place to leave a trailer.

Sorry, No Pets. No more than 6 to sleep at house. Daytime no more than 15 allowed. The house is intended for families and vacations, No large parties. Thanks!

Nice property on the water!

  • 5 of 5

Great area and well-maintained unique property that is worth the extra money over staying in a hotel downtown. If you are bringing your own boat it is a couple minute boat ride from the 360 ramp and to Hula Hut for lunch/dinner, just bring big plastic bumpers for your boat if you want to tie off to the dock as the wakes are pretty intense on the weekend. There is a nice large carpet grass area off the back deck heading down to the lake to run around/kids to play. Also has a nice stereo and speaker system for listening to music via Airplay inside and outside. Only drawback of property is the hike down to/back up from the lake. There are no lights and parts of the steps down to the dock have no railing, as long as you're careful you're fine, just be ready for a workout carrying anything back up the steps and sloped yard to the house. Water is about 4-6ft deep around the dock, free of hydrilla when I was there, and has a not too muddy rounded rock bottom good for swimming hanging out. Overall a great property I'd rent again!

Made our Memorial Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I stayed at Joe's house over Memorial Weekend, and we couldnt have picked a better place. The house was fully equipped with all the necessary amenities and was in great condition. The view from the house and boat house couldnt be better and is only a short boat ride down to Hula Hut. It is quite a workout getting from the bottom of the boat deck to the back patio, but worth every second, as you can always take a breather and enjoy the view from the edge of the yard while lying in the hammock. Needless to say, we all enjoyed our stay and had a great experience. We will definitely book this house again!

Westlake Hills on Lake Austin. Huge Live oaks and green lawns show a gentler more relaxed side of Austin. Lake Austin's cool, clear green water erases the stress of everyday life. Perfect for Boats. Boatslip is occupied, but there is room for two boats to tie up. Or, Boatslip available for longer rentals

* Rate sheet pricing is accurate. Pls note 3 night minimum and six person maximum. Thx!
