About Sam

I have owned this house for 19 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

Great home, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

Great property for a large group. The house was easy to enjoy, and well-kept. Enjoyed the private dock + waterslide. Pool was also really great to have around on hot days. Plenty of sleeping space + room to socialize. Great hosts.

Fun Times!

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our group. It had all the amenities that made our stay there spectacular. Our group really enjoyed the floating pad in lake, water slide, house swimming pool and out door barbecue area. The view from the decks at sunset was incredible. House was clean and well prepped for us when we got there. I would recommend this house if you want to stay on the heart of Lake Austin.

Also, the owner made the overall experience easy and was helpful in answering any questions/concerns one may have!

Great Place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

My group of 10 guys had a great extended weekend for a Texas football game. The house itself was better than advertised with easy access swimming pool and down a few sets of steps for dock access with floating raft and waterslide. The house was clean and we didn't see any bugs or critters inside the house despite it's place on the side of the hill and so close to the river. Sam was easy to talk with and work with for planning purposes. I'd highly recommend this house.

Can't beat the lakeside views and location. Great for large groups, had my bachelorette party here and accommodated 16 girls with room to spare. Loved the slide and oversized float dockside. Will consider staying again if In area.

Not a nice place. Left early.

  • 1 of 5

Not very clean, refrigerators didn't work much at all, cockroaches in the house at night, wood railings and steps uneven and falling apart, areas of junk/garbage around the property.

Owner's Response: Much of the Month of August 2017 the property had some really bad property managers that resulted in multiple problems and really did not take care of the property. Now all of the problems that occurred in August 2017 are fixed and the reviews since then back that up.
