Overview

About the property

Sleeps 18 $250 to $2500 Nightly (Boat Rental and Heat Pool Optional)

Lake Austin Vacation Home

House and its swimming pool area sit off a cliff overlooking Lake Austin with a large dock to swim off of. It is about 20 minutes from downtown Austin. Willing to discount weekday stay only stays please inquire. Property is very private with tremendous views up and down the Lake. Property is located by a very large park that has multiple trails for hiking. Great fishing off the dock also. Property has a heated pool and a 28 foot pontoon boat for rent that holds up to 19 people both are optional.

(Rates were increased due to the following additions to the property that are under construction right now:)

New additions to the dock area include:

1. Two wet boat slips dedicated to the renters. Can dock very large vessels.

2. Water Slide that is 10 foot top to water with 71 gallons a minute rushing down it. 4 times standard water max at a homes..

3. Artificial Shallow Water Area on Lake.

4. 8' Foot Commercial Diving Board

5. 2" Thick 6' x 20' Floating Foam Pad holds 1600 pounds on Lake

6. Water Spout that blasts water into the air over lake at extremely high pressure. It should reduce the overall temperature around the dock considerably in the summer.

7. Under Water 300 watt LED Blue Dome Light that will make the water blue (24 foot diameter estimated) around the Water Slide.

8. 100 Watt LED Black Lighted New Recreational Area as well as regular lighting.

9. Three picnic tables added to the dock area

About Sam

I have owned this house for 17 years.

Sam purchased this house in 1998

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a corporate gathering at Sam’s house. The house was perfect for this, it had a large open area where we all gathered to watch our Company videos on the large screen TV. We then had a gourmet dinner in a beautiful dining room that was prepared in the house’s very large kitchen.



The house sits on a bluff with spectacular views up and down Lake Austin. With all the levels and angles the house itself is a work of art.



In summary we enjoyed staying there and plan to do it again. It

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 guys come into town for a golf trip. The house was more than enough room and very comfortable for the weekend. Sam was very helpful throughout our stay and kindly asked us to keep down the noise when we got a little too loud. I would recommend this house and will hopefully stay here again in the future.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Great Place for me and my friends 30yr high school reunion. Huge place, sleeps 15, plenty of parking, 2 refrigerators and lrg screen TV. Liked having the boat dock and had the best time on the Pontoon Boat every day cruising Lake Austin.

Bachelor Party Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Home was a perfect fit for a large group of people for an extended weekend. Great views from the home and the multiple decks, pool was ideal and the lake access made it even better. Boats can pick up and drop off at the dock which makes it that much more convenient for boating on the lake.

Getting to and from the city took about 20-25 minutes which is manageable and exactly as described. Would recommend to another group for a fun weekend. Thanks for accommodating our group!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house was the most ideal vacation rental home I've ever stayed in. With beautiful views of Lake Austin, a spacious swimming pool, boat dock, and a state of the art grill, it is the perfect place for a large groups of people, or even for couples wanting a quick getaway. The house has plenty of space, as well as a beautiful kitchen for cooking. We felt right at home after buying groceries and cooking many of our meals in the kitchen or on the grill. The house is clean, and conveniently located 15-20 minutes from downtown. This house is an absolute score! I will never stay anywhere else when I return to Austin, except for this house. Thank you, Sam!

Big and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time time at this house! It is spacious and easily slept all 18 guys. Sam was extremely easy to work with! The views overlooking Lake Austin were just amazing. The house sits up about 100 feet from the lake with multiple outdoor sitting areas for viewing. Our only issue was the distance into downtown Austin (about 30 minute cab), but the house and amenities made up for that.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately there was construction on Mopac the main artery to downtown that weekend which slowed traffic at night. Normally without traffic the drive is 20 minutes.
