About the Property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Point Venture Retreat is a vacation rental property located on Lake Travis, in Point Venture, Texas, 20 miles west of Austin, in the Heart of the Texas Hill Country.

Our renovated and redecorated town-home (new kitchen, beds, counter tops, Spanish tile, bamboo floors, and tiled showers) has two bedrooms, a loft, two full baths and 350 square feet of decks on 2 levels. It can sleep 8 with all the comforts of home. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, the downstairs bedroom has a queen, and the loft has a queen size futon. There is also a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room.

From Point Venture Retreat you will have private access to the lake with your own swim dock, and will enjoy beautiful views of the lake while relaxing on the 2 levels of decks. The wood burning fireplace is a welcome attraction during the colder, winter months. Private driveway parking is provided for up to 4 vehicles and/or boat trailers.

Marina and Floating Restaurant: The Point Venture Marina, located at the mouth of our cove, provides a fuel dock, a store, and The Gnarly Gar (formerly Shades Cafe) floating restaurant. There are watercraft rentals located up the lake in Lago Vista. The Gnarly restaurant is open year round.

Welcome: We hope you enjoy our lakeside town home as much as we do! When you arrive, relax and make yourself at home at Point Venture Retreat. It is a privilege to share this with you, our friends, and we would love to continue our rental program for years to come. We realize that it's not a 'plush' and 'fancy' resort hotel, but it's very special to us. We ask that you would respect and treat Point Venture Retreat as if it were yours.
