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 Austin

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!

Awesome lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Close to all the cool Austin landmarks. Close to downtown. We felt like we were out in the country, on the lake. Neat neighborhood, nice people, big yard and lots of nature. We paddle boarded, kayaked, fished and relaxed. We fed swans and geese. The property is nice, well maintained and had everything we needed. Not junky like some places. Awesome bed, TV and Internet worked great. Owners were accommodating and helpful.

OK

Neat little cottage in a great location. However it was not clean or well maintained. Should only be used by 2 people.

Great quiet location w/amazing views

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was great for a little weekend away. I loved being so close to the City, but also having amazing views of the lake out the front door. While the cottage has a slightly older feel, that is part of its charm. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was very clean. Plenty of storage space for suitcases. Plenty of towels, extra blankets, beach towels. The boat dock was nice. There's a huge table up there and 8-10 chairs. We didn't use the little fireplace. The only suggestion I would make is to invest in a new grill. A few of the metal grates are corroded through and the inside paint of the lid is peeling. Otherwise, a great little place for a few people. I would for sure rent it again.

Cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Close enough to town, without being in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Staying by the water was very nice. Very comfortable, with all the needed amenities.

Lovely cottage to stay in

  • 5 of 5

my friend and I stayed in the cottage for a long weekend over SXSW - its a bit out of town but lovely location. Cynthia was very helpful with any questions we had during the stay as well. We loved sitting out on the deck.

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

We love this space! From the cozy and clean cottage to the nice big yard to the boat deck that sits out over the water all combined for a wonderful stay while visiting our daughter. Cynthia greeted us and answered all our questions. We hung out on the deck and lit a fire in the chimenea and enjoyed the boats traveling by as well as the ducks and a swan. The bed was comfortable but the pull out was so-so. All in all though I give it a five star and would return!
