Why John Bunnell chose Apache Shores

The drought in Texas is making public access to Lake Travis close to impossible. A house with access to Lake Austin just seemed to make sense.

What makes this house unique

Complimentary use of the boat ramp, park, and pool within Apache Shores.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a few friends for a non-crazy New Year's. The house was perfect for our stay, big enough for everyone to hang out and to also have their own privacy if they wanted. We could see fireworks from the balcony! The house is beautiful and super clean. We cooked all of our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again! Communication with John was great, he gave us all the info we needed for our stay.

Roomy and great space for families.

Enjoyed our stay here. There are plenty of beds and room to hang out. Kitchen was large and great for cooking. Minutes from the lake. The water pressure was a little low at times, but everything else was great. Would definitely stay here again.

Spacious and clean house with hill country view including a well equipped kitchen and outside grill

  • 5 of 5

The two of us rented and enjoyed the comfort of this house for a two month stay located in a quiet, walkable neighborhood. Owner provided easy anytime house entry and a prompt texting response. A large master bedroom (with queen) and ensuite plus walkin closet including a large screen tv were great comforts. Upstairs bedrooms with full bath are great for additional family or guests. Kitchen appliances are deluxe stainless and washer/dryer are a plus. Startup essentials were provided with great choices for shopping nearby. Cable and movies provided for our rainy days which we had only 2 or 3 our entire two month stay. Garage provided secure inside parking. Our dog was welcome and I appreciated the fenced backyard. Nearby Lakeway Park provided great paved running access with water views. With close proximity to Austin and hill county towns we were able to enjoy many day tips to wineries and local restaurants. Hope to be back next year to experience warm temps and blue bonnets while avoiding northern Michigan winter.

Nice home close to everything

  • 4 of 5

The home was very nice and had all the amenities we needed to make our stay relaxing. We even ventured to the community pool and met some really nice families. There were some minor housekeeping issues that we took care of ourselves, but the owner was very quick to respond and offered to correct immediately which was greatly appreciated. I would definitely suggest staying at this home.
