About Cynthia manages this property

We will make sure your stay is relaxing and very enjoyable.

Mimi bought this property to 'get away' from the busy world. We used to live in this house and loved every minute of it.

There is not much property left on Lake Austin. It is quiet here and we love to go skiing, relax on the boat dock, or go to the local restaurants nearby.

Cynthia manages this property purchased this house in 1975

Why Cynthia manages this property chose Windy Cove

Retirement home. On the lake, central to downtown, private neighborhood, view of 360 bridge, wake boarding, water skiing, jet skiing and boating to restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Central, no traffic, close to everything and a great deal!

Great little cottage with fantastic boat deck and view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the cottage - it's very well furnished and super comfortable. We spent our daughter's graduation week in Austin which was busy! It was lovely to start each day with breakfast on the deck enjoying the view of 360 bridge and the really nice breeze. So relaxing and zen! We feel we found the perfect spot for our trips to Austin and are very much looking forward to the next time!!
