3 Bed, 2 bath home on Lake Austin, Terrific Views, Private Setting
About Peter Yates
Having travelled extensively and lived in multiple cities around the world, we recently decided to call Austin home. As a family of 4, we love enjoying everything that Austin has to offer. Our 2 daughters are enrolled in the excellent Eanes schools and enjoy soccer, horse riding and all water sports.
Peter Yates purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Peter Yates chose Rio Robles
This is a unique waterfront property in Austin and on Lake Austin. It was owned, and named, for 30 years by Texas's own Percy V. Pennybacker (yes, the guy the bridge is named after!). Not sure if he saw the duck's or Hawk's Golden Eyes or simply the golden Eye of the sun setting over the lake but the place is a hidden gem. This property allows you to enjoy the party down at the lake and then retreat up to the serenity at the top of the Bluff.
What makes this Cottage unique
The Views and the water...how could you not fall in love with it. Whether it is the dawn when the birds are scouting breakfast over the lake, the sunsets that fall over the length of the lake or the evening where everyone's boat dock lights make the lake sparkle like an Italian port...every time of day is great.

Wonderful stay with amazing views
Wonderful property with great views, nice pool and new boat dock. Good exercise walking down to the water but there is a drive up entrance as well, which we used to bring our food down for a river front BBQ. It's very secluded and the property is huge. Overall a great stay. We will be very happy to rent again in the future.
House was great. Spacious and clean. The pool was nice but wished it had been warmer. The views were spectacular, enjoyed the outdoor area for sunsets. We did a wine tour to Dripping Springs which wasn’t too far and another lunch day in Austin. Great short vacay.
Our out of town family (PA, WA and Temple, Tx) of 5 spent the Christmas holiday here. Not only was the view spectacular with the picture windows giving us a theatrical view of the lake and sky, the property also accommodated our pets with plenty of grounds to run around and explore. There is much to enjoy and relax both indoors and outdoors. Surprisingly, the kitchen equipped us with enough serving dishes, utensils and appliances to prepare a feast; which was perfect for the various dishes prepared for the Christmas holiday. The rooms were well kept and the beds were especially comfortable for our family. Our hosts were responsive to special requests and offered great suggestions to access shopping, restaurants, and excursions accessible to the home. We stayed mostly at the house but did attend The Nutcracker at the Arts Center, dined downtown and took a few sightseeing tours.
Given that it was the winter holiday, we were not able to use the slip and its amenities to enjoy the lake yet it offers enough enticement to return the next time we gather with family and friends once again.
Outstanding accommodations and one of a kind view.
Celebrated a milestone birthday for my wife. Had 5 people staying in the house and did so very comfortably. The cliff side view from the deck and patio area was stunning, and the boat dock area is knocked out. Enjoyed our time both up top at the house, and down on the water.
Highly recommend this home.
Quiet and tranquil
Lovely 3bdrm place with great views. Patio and dock areas are amazing. Great property. We will look forward to a future stay. Hosts are readily available, and very hospitable.
A Wonderful property in a Great part of Austin.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Watersedge and will definitely return. The location and Views were amazing, and proximity to good restaurants and shopping was an added plus. Can't wait to return!
Enjoy everything that Central Texas has to offer. Take advantage of Lake Austin, downtown Austin, Texas Hill Country, the Highland lakes and San Antonio. This is a great base for the major Austin events such as South by Southwest (SXSW), Formula 1, Austin City Limits (ACL), and Moto GP.
