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.
Seasonal activities in and around Austin include:
The Austin City Limits Music Festival- (ACL) Festival is a 2 weekend, 3-day, eight stage annual event happening in Austin, Texas each Fall. ACL Fest is known as the most green and environmentally-friendly music festival in the country and brings together more than 130 acts from all over the world to play rock, indie, country, folk, electronic and more. Over 70,000 fans attend the festival each day. With over 130 bands you won't want to miss out on these two back to back fun-filled weekends in Austin, the Music Capital of the World!

Formula 1 Race in November- If you love Formula 1 races then this is the one for you! The Formula 1 United States Grand Prix Race is in Austin, Texas each November.

SXSW Festival in March- If you love music, like all of us in Austin do or you’re interested in art, music, digital media, and film, SXSW (South by South West) is definitely for you! Happening over the span of a week and a half, SXSW occurs every March accompanied by SXSW Interactive and followed by SCXSW film festival. SXSW happens every year in Austin, Texas and is not to be missed!
