About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

This unique one of a kind 1940's era cottage oozes with charm and sophistication. It has been completely updated inside and out for one purpose; to be the perfect vacation home. Whether you're looking for an active vacation or a relaxing one you'll want to stay here. For the active set, you can launch your boat next door at the private Sail and Ski Yacht Club for a daily fee. Contact them for information. Or rent a boat or other fun toys at Just for Fun at Emerald Point Marina which is only 10 minutes away. For the party set, our Austin themed backyard is perfect for intimate celebrations. Whether is a birthday, anniversary, or even a wedding, our backyard offers a live music stage, dance floor, picnic tables and a bar all in an eclectic, authentically Austin theme!

If your interests are golf or tennis you can golf just 10 minutes away at Falconhead Golf Club just 5.5 miles from our home and is open to the public. You can play tennis at World of Tennis which is a private club but open to the public for a daily fee.

Enjoy a leisurely hike at the City of Lakeway Canyonland Trails just 15 minutes from our home to take in the beauty of the hill country. Great for walking your dog, taking a leisurely stroll or an energetic jog.

For the easy going set, you can just relax and take in the beautiful Texas sunsets from our front deck or stroll next door to Sundancer Grill for a margarita on their water front deck. Location, location, location. You're away from it all yet close to everything on the West side. You're only 30 minutes from downtown Austin and its live music and entertainment scene. Great dining choices are only a few minutes away and shopping and movie theaters are about 10 minutes away at the trendy new Hill Country Galleria.

We also provide access to Mansfield Dam Park, The Lakeway Swim Center, and Emma Long Park in which we reimburse you the entrance fees to those locations per our Rental Agreement which you can view in this listing.

Amazing backyard!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this vrbo. We had a group of girls and had a blast. The house was well equipped and homey. Our first day the house would not cool off and was 80 degrees but on day 2 it finally cooled down. Overall, great experience!

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an amazing time staying in Ron and Paige's home! Their house was as charming and beautiful as the pictures suggested and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Lake Travis area. They were very responsive and helped us as much as they could through texts and phone calls.
