Unique, dog-friendly, waterfront home w/ game tables, patio, & balcony

Make plans for a Texas-sized vacation with the family at this two-story, waterfront home with table games including pool, air hockey, a full kitchen, and a furnished balcony.

This spacious, three-bedroom home sits alongside a deep-water arm of Bee Creek Cove off the Colorado River allowing you to easily drop in with a canoe, standup paddleboard, or kayak and paddle away on waterborne adventures out on Lake Travis. This rental is also just 25 miles west the heart of Austin for shopping, dining, and of course plenty of live music and entertainment!

Featuring a mix of flagstone and hardwood floors, stacked stone walls, and a variety of other unique design features both inside and out, this is a special property with a stately aesthetic that also offers all the desirable, modern conveniences of home.

The living area doubles as a game room with a comfortable seating area, poker, pool as well as a convenient wet bar.

Take a couple steps up and into the dining area with its large, farm-style table, chairs, and benches, enough space for six to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal. This area also holds an air hockey table for even more fun!

The cozy kitchen has prep space, cabinets and drawers stocked with essential accessories, cookware, and utensils, and a full array of appliances including a range, refrigerator, microwave oven, coffeemaker, slow cooker, and dishwasher.

All three bedrooms are located upstairs in this home: the master suite has a king-sized bed, the first guest room has a queen, and the kids will have a blast in the third bedroom featuring two sets of twin bunks. With three bedrooms and two full baths, this home sleeps up to eight guests very comfortably. The family dog is also welcome to accompany you during your stay for an additional nightly fee.

Get online with ease thanks to the provided WiFi, and keep up with all your favorite shows and movies on three cable TVs, some of which can stream your personal Netflix account! The TV in the bunk room also has a DVD player, so bring along a few movies for the kids to enjoy! This home also comes with a washer and dryer, so you can start each day of your vacation with fresh, clean clothes.

While there's plenty of fun to be had at home with the provided game tables and the four kayaks in the storage unit, you may find yourself sitting back and relaxing on the balcony where you can catch up on some reading while deer wander through your grassy backyard. (Please note that the grounds are shared with a cottage that is also on the property.)

For shopping, dining, and a movie theater, be sure to visit the Hill Country Galleria just 10 miles away in nearby Bee Cave. Golfers will want to bring their clubs and head over to the historic Lions Municipal Golf Course alongside the Colorado River, 25 miles away, or to the two public golf courses within just two miles: Pedernales Country Club and Falcon Head. And no visit to the area would be complete without spending some time in the state capital of Austin, renowned for its live music scene, as well as its many parks, lakes, and phenomenal restaurants. And close to home, you'll have Lee's, a great spot for burgers and pizza and under four miles from you. There's also a neighborhood public ramp, just one block from the house at the end of Lake Drive Road. There's also a new 10X20 swimming platform with a walkway from the land.

Book this rental today and start planning for a fun-filled getaway with the whole family or a group of friends at this unique, waterfront home away from home!

Awesome host
Fun, unique amenities

We visited in July 2020 with our family of 4 adults and 2 kids. We wanted somewhere that our older kids (11 & 15) could have a good time and have room for all of us to be comfortable. Check in was super easy, owner lives next door so if we needed anything he was happy to help. This is not a 5 star resort, it's a lake house, but it's very true to the pics. Could use some updating if he wanted to charge more, but for the price it was spot on.
By far the best highlight is the direct lake access. It is down a little hill with steps, but has a great deck on a quiet cove. We loved spending time swimming off the dock, kayaking (which were provided) and jet skiing. We brought our sea doo, there was a ramp a mile away, and left it at our private dock for our stay. We also really appreciated the farm style dinner table for all of our family to enjoy meals, the cable TV in all rooms and numerous game tables for fun without screens.
The wifi is a bit spotty in the house, but worked fine when you find it. The furniture is has a second-hand feel, but it's no big deal. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to our friends.

Excellent location on a quiet cove within Lake Travis. Was impressed with the water clarity (I was spoiled growing up in MN). Our host was extremely accommodating. Bonus: kayaks were included. Will definitely be coming back!

Dock at the lake, the set up and lots of space to hang out!

Overall this place was pretty good, but it was missing a few things that keep it from 5 stars.

1.) This is a SHARED property, but that is not obvious from the listing. Basically, there is a house next door that could also use the dock, yard, and fire pit. It wasn't an issue for us because the people in the other house never came outside.
2.) Missing outside lights. The side yard with the grill really needs some outside lights or an outlet. They were broken.
3.) Couldn't get the cable to work. They claim there is cable but we only got two broadcast channels and the cable box never sent a signal. We didn't need TV so we didn't call, but just know you might have to call someone.
4.) No response from "owner." This is run by some company in California, and they never responded to my questions prior to arriving. I wanted to know about a grill, and early check in, but never heard anything. We did have a note with a phone number upon arrival, but by then it didn't matter.

Enjoying a weekend in Austin on lake Travis turned out to be such a pleasurable experience. Every commodity available, with no complaints from the teens.

Huge lot with so many things to do indoors and outdoors. Parts of the house (probably the original house) are more cabin- like and cozy. The living room is elegant and fabulous. Very pleasant.
