About Traci Jackson and Faith Marasco

Wade and I live in Houston, TX but spend a lot of time working in Austin. We loved the lake so much that we decided to buy our first unit at this beautiful complex in 2012. After spending many weekends on the lake we decided to expand and buy a 2nd place. It is our little sanctuary...and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! We also just finished building a beach house and its for rent: VRBO Listing 682500.

Traci Jackson and Faith Marasco purchased this condo in 2013

Pretty Good

  • 4 of 5

Leading up to the stay, the owners were very responsive and helpful. There was an issue (possibly operator error) with the dishwasher after checkin which I received quick support. Owners/mngt company were very nice and helpful which made the experince nice. On the downside, there were a couple maintenance/housekeeping issues, that should be addressed.

Firstly, the icemaker doesnt work. I dont make ice at home and I definitely dont want to make ice on vacation. I cant remember the last time I had to make ice at anyone's home. Secondly, my mom had on one of the robes and discovered a handful of whole potato chips in the pockets when she reached into them. Probably should wash those every stay regardless of whether anyone thought the departing guests wore them or not. Thirdly, there was no air filter in the air conditioner intake which was a consideration since we have a newborn. Fourth, the AC has a note on it that it shouldnt be turned down below 72 or it will freeze up. I like the house cold when I sleep, as I am sure other people do as well. 72 is sort of marginal to me. There were a couple other smaller things not worth harping on, but overall I felt like there were some known shortcomings with the property that were left to guests to deal with instead of allocating money to fix them.

I gave the property 4 stars for the owner's responsiveness, but given the option in the ranking system, I would probably give 3.5 stars.

Owner's Response: Drew, Thank you for your feedback. As with all complaints we take them very seriously. The fridge has never had a functional ice maker. It's disabled for a specific reason. It's noted on the check in document which you received prior to arrival as well as the house manual. The fridge does not have a functional Ice maker because of the type of water system utilized. We provide a ton of ice trays that have been filled before you arrival and we also suggest grabbing a bag of ice at the corner store on your way in. If there was no ice upon arrival, you should've contacted us like you did for the dishwasher which was immediately resolved. The air filter: we discussed this during our call about the dishwasher. The Island utilizes a geo-thermal system which uses water from the lake to cool and heat. Unlike normal systems, the filter resides on the AC unit. I walked you through where the filter was and it was brand new and right where it was suppose to be. The bent you were concerned about is not a intake vent. The AC can go below 72, just not with the patio doors open, and preferably not for 24 hours due to the ground-thermal system. We take pride in our home and we also manage it ourselves. We provide a lot of extras like robes, and unfortunately our cleaning crew missed a robe that was in a guest closet. It has been addressed with them and I can assure you that our cleaners will be more through. As you can see from all our other reviews, we strive to provide a wonderful vacation home. With all this being said, I believe your review was negative because you were upset about being questioned about the absorbent number of guests that you didn't disclose and the party. All of which we support as long as it's within reason, and it's not destructive to our home. If someone hadn't shown up immediately to "fix" the dishwasher which you claim was broken (but was user error,) my guess is none of this would have occurred.

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we needed. My daughter and her husband joined us for a wonderful relaxing vacation away from it all. There was plenty of room including a full kitchen and a great view. We were able to bring our little dogs with us and enjoy time together in a beautiful setting.

Amazing views and space

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and amazing view. It was a very tranquil and peaceful stay. There was plenty of space for us. We even had friends over for a birthday dinner. The owner Faith was very helpful in answering questions we had and suggestions. The only downside was there seemed to have been dogs staying because the floor had dog hair and my family is somewhat allergic. Other than that we had a great time and would recommend staying here to anyone. We enjoyed Gnarly Gar's food and setting.
