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 Indian Point At 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

We had such a great time! That was the first time in 3 years we've had all

of our "grown" kids under the same roof! Thank you! The place was great!

Great family time at Point Venture!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful family time, Townhouse worked great, rented a golf cart, weather super, ate at Gnarly Gar twice, had two picnics in the park, skipped rocks, enjoyed Easter egg hunt (people so nice) and grandkids swam in the pool although a little cool. All 12 of us (one was 8 months old) had a place to sleep, kitchen supplied what we needed to prepare meals for all. Played cards together and had a super time. Thank you so much. Everyone was thrilled to have had a mini vacation there, only wish it could have been longer.

Cozy, accommodating, quiet, fun location

  • 5 of 5

It was so cool to be so close to the wildlife! The deer walked right through the back yard many times a day. It felt like we were at our own private place far from everyone else, even though it’s a townhouse.

Great Location and Has Everything You Need

  • 4 of 5

This home is equipped with everything we needed to cook all of our meals and is in really close proximity to the marina where we rented a pontoon boat from Liquid Thrillz (many thanks to the owner for this recommendation!). We were traveling with 3 kiddos under the age of 5 which created some challenges, as one might expect. :-) With that said, if you're traveling with little bitty ones the handrails upstairs are far apart and two of our 3 could fit right through didn't happen because we kept an eye on them, but we also didn't get to fully enjoy the beautiful view from the upstairs balcony. The handrails downstairs were a little closer together so didn't have to worry as much. There are deer everywhere which made for nice morning walks! Would definitely revisit without the littles!

Downstairs bedroom had no a/c vents in room causing it to be stuffy and uncomfortable. Only 1 remote could be located for 2 TV's which were small and only had access to maybe 4 channels. Not good during football season! Out side decks were clustered and dirty. No yard in back.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the inconvenience of the remotes. It has since been found. My cleaning lady has been advised of the patio but I do not carry many channels on my cable since its a weekend lake house. It has more than 4 but I do not carry ESPN. Most renters go to the Gnarly Gar restaurant and enjoy their atmosphere and cocktails during football season. It is a townhome with lake frontage so no yard. We enjoy the 50 acre park in the neighborhood for basketball and volleyball and relaxing along the beach. Thank you for your input

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!
