Overview

About the property

You will feel right at home in our townhouse on Lake Travis!

BOATERS WELCOME! Walk down to your own private boat dock nestled in a beautiful, protected cove in Point Venture. You will love the convenience of safely leaving your boat in the water overnight.The cove is one of the cleanest on the lake, perfect for swimming, fishing, or just soaking up the sun!

It is the same cove as the Gnarly Gar(formerly The Pier) Restaurant which not only provides food and weekend entertainment but marine fuel and your boating needs. Due to unforeseen lake levels the dock is kept down in the cove from the house to ensure availability. The restaurant has just finished its complete renovations to hold many patrons. Renting a boat is just 10 minutes away.

Even if you don't own a boat you can

enjoy relaxing on 2 large decks with water views of the lake and front deck view of the tennis courts. Our renovated townhouse includes a NEWLY REMODELED full kitchen with stainless appliances, washer and dryer, see-thru fireplace, 2 full baths and 3 bedrooms. It sleeps up to 12. On the main level has our master suite with a queen bed and bathroom. Downstairs includes 2 bedrooms, one of which, is the kid's quarters with a twin over full bunk bed, daybed, trundle and futon which sleeps a total of 6 plus their own TV,DVD,VCR and bathroom. There is also a third bedroom with a full size bed. Also, the couch makes into a full sleeper sofa. *******Don't forget to bring your Ipod to hook up to the indoor surround sound or the outdoor speaker and listen to your favorite tunes. (attachment cord provided) We also provide propane for your cookouts on the deck using the gas grill.

Drink a glass of wine, read a book, or just look at the stars as you relax on our huge hammock on one of our decks. WIFI WIFI WIFI

You will see plenty of deer who LOVE to eat every morning. Just shake the cup filled with corn that we provide and watch them migrate!!!

We are a short driving distance to award winning wineries. Enjoy your stay while visiting one of the many wine trail festivities in the area through out the year.

Check out the book of info in the living room for all the entertainment/activities in the area including wineries and shopping. WIFI

Lake Travis is a beautiful lake with 44,000 acres of cool, clean and clear water. There is unlimited boating and water sports on the lake plus many coves where you can swim and relax. We have plenty of activities to choose from in the gated community of Point Venture, such as the 9 hole golf course with driving range, putting green and pro shop, Jr. Olympic swimming pool, lighted tennis courts, library and a work out room.

There is also a private 50 acre park with 3 boat ramps, children's playground, bar b que pits, pavillion, basketball court and picnic tables. Our park seems to be the lake hangout with boats mooring off the white sandy shores. Great place to people watching so just bring a cooler and your lawn chairs to enjoy the fun. You will also have access to the Point Venture Marina. All this included in your stay with us. NO EXTRA FEES LIKE OTHER SUBDIVISIONS

At night, the lights come alive across the lake from Lakeway Resort which you can enjoy while relaxing on the deck.

This is a perfect centrally located property for a family hill country retreat or romantic getaway. Volente waterpark is 20 minute drive away. Hidden Falls ATV park is only 20 minutes away.

About Tina Critendon

My husband and I live in Cypress with our 3 very active children. We have been married 20+ years and plan on retiring on Lake Travis.

Tina Critendon purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Tina Critendon chose Point Venture

We previously owned one of these townhomes for 3 years and sold only because of our schedule becoming too busy. We missed Lake Travis and especially our friends and neighbors in Point Venture that we decided to buy again. We try to make it up as much as we can but not enough.

What makes this townhome unique

I fell in love with this neighborhood because everyone is so friendly. I love sitting on my deck drinking coffee in the morning and feeding the deer. It is my get away. The amenities are so abundant that you do not need to leave the area. We can play golf in the morning and boat in the evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a blast with my family and weekend getaway. We will be coming back.. Love the lake life.

Great location, house, interaction with owner

  • 5 of 5

I've rented from Tina before on multiple occasions and this one proved no exception. The house was in the exact condition as advertised, Tina was very accessible and easy to work with and everyone came away very satisfied during my brother's wedding weekend in Austin.

Thank you, and I'm sure we will be reaching out to you again in no time.

Awesome get away and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location near the lake fully stocked with anything you needed! Comfortably slept 10 people and provided a relaxing get-away being so close to the water. Loved being close to the Gnarly Gar & boat/kayak rental locations too!

It was beautiful!!

  • 4 of 5

The place was amazing! We were able to enjoy the view of the water, but we were not able to access the water from the condo. It was not a big deal though within a couple miles there are 2 water access areas one through the subdivision and the other is a Travis county park. We saw so many deer!!!!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time. Thanks for he review. You can get down to my boat dock on the water from the condo but it is a little tricky. We keep it out further in the cove away from brush so it takes some walking to get to it. Think of us next time when in the area

Very nice. Clean, updated townhouse on the water. Very central on lake. Great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic weekend getaway. Updated, clean, comfortable townhouse on same inlet as Gnarly Gar restaurant/pier (great restaurant).

Directly across from Lakeway Marina (great watersport rentals).

Great location. We brought a wakeboarding boat and rented another for tubing. No problems at all. It made it easy for inlet to be so central on lake.

Townhouse sleeps 12 comfortably - great for large families or weekend share.

View from balcony. Hammock. Great outdoors - deer everywhere.

Great community. Friendly neighbors. Good amenities.

If your shopping for lakefront weekend rentals - this Point Venture townhouse and Lake Travis provide great value! Repeat customer for sure.

Great Stay on Lake Travis

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 2 months and enjoyed all of it. The decks and view were great. The owner was cooperative and responsive throughout the stay. Lots of wildlife and great catfishing in the cove. Overall it is a great value and we would reccommend it for family gatherings and entertainment. The accommodations, although somewhat dated, were very comfortable.

A great experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time during our stay. The boat dock made it especially easy to get to our boat and The Gnarly Gar restaurant was a blast. The house was very clean and Tina was helpful during our entire stay.
