Luxury house with lake views, gas grill, and huge deck

Whether you’re here for a family vacation, an artists’ retreat, or just a group visit, this Lake Travis house accommodates large groups with room to spare. The 45-foot covered deck is the home's crown jewel, with fantastic views of the lake and enough space to entertain your whole group. With seating for ten between two tables, you can enjoy a big celebratory meal outside.

The open-concept living space at this beautiful single-story lake house is a perfect place for collaboration, fun, and togetherness. Eight can sit by the fireplace with its lovely stone surround and watch some cable on the 50-inch TV, but it may be hard to pay attention to the TV when you see the view! Floor-to-ceiling windows facing the lake and Hill Country run all the way across the main floor into the kitchen and dining space.

The chef in your group will love cooking in this kitchen, boasting a convenient pass-through to the living area and bar seating for five. It’s outfitted with all-new stainless steel appliances, and ten guests can dine at the dining room table.

This home is ideal for families traveling together with its two primary suites. Both feature deck access, lake views, and a luxurious en suite bathroom - check out the fantastic backlit vanity and floor detail. Additionally, there is a bonus living area with a TV, a stone feature wall, and double door access.

We really enjoyed our 4th July weekend with my family, 4 children and partners, 3 babies under 2 1/2. Very good kitchen with quality appliances. We ate at the home and enjoyed sunsets every evening from the deck and the deck is frontline seats to the fireworks show. Plenty of room for everyone. Ideal for my family. I would definitely stay again.

Our stay at the Challenger house was such a delight. Very beautiful home, clean , comfortable and charming neighborhood. Thank you for being such a great host. We will definitely come back again.

Such a great house. Lots of room. The only issue was the fridge did not work. And there was a sign on the fridge that said the fridge didn't work. We were there for 4 days and some of our food went bad. Other than that, this house is amazing.!
Manager response:
Hi, Alfredo! We are so sorry to read you had any difficulties with the fridge. There was an old sign on the fridge directing guests to call the old management company if the fridge wasn't working. That sign has been removed, and maintenance has verified the fridge is in good working order. Thank you!

Great place to stay for a family action. The description of the house was dead on. Plenty of room for 2 families to eat and hang out. The balcony had extra seating and was a great place to hang out and watch the sun set!! We arrived to the house and it was spotless!! The house provided everything we needed from the comfortable bedroom to the fully equipped kitchen. We plan to return and would recommend the beautiful property to other family and friends.

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect stay. We had a great time and the house was clean and we had everything we needed close by. There was an H-E-B 6 min away and lakeway resort was also 7 min away! Would love to stay here again! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Mitchell P. Oct 2020
House is set back off the lake. Great for larger groups. A bit dated and some odd goings on in the neighborhood that the renters cannot control. Not sure we will be back. We were further from the lake than expected so not amazing views and we were not close to the marina like we hoped. Had somebody check our car doors in the middle of the night, right outside the door. Oh yeah and lots of bugs that should not be there at this price point.

The home was very clean and had plenty of individual beds which was perfect for our Buddy Golf Trip. Owner was very nice. Great location for Golf in the NW corner of Austin. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Thank you for sharing your spacious home with us for our daughter`s Austin wedding weekend. It was the perfect place for our family to relax before the big day. The view was beautiful and we loved the long deck watching amazing sunsets. We even took a walk through the neighborhood and enjoyed seeing all the deer. We hope to return soon!

Great property with tons of bed spaces. House is brand new and in immaculate condition. The owner even provided a gift basket and a bottle of wine in the fridge. Instructions were clear, everything worked, and the rental company was very professional. The view was spectacular as well.

The house was beautiful! Very clean and well maintained. Can sleep up to 16 people comfortably, so there was plenty of room for everyone This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Deneen J. Sep 2019
When you pull up to the home the ground up keep could be a lot better. The gate need to be repaired and painted. The inside of the home was amazing but it came with it issues. One of the cabinet door was broken, the shower the master’s bathroom was broken also. But other than that the home was amazing. The only thing I felt every bedroom should have a television in it. But overall I love the house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We rented this location for an immersive training session for a group of 5. It was just right.... the home was large enough without being huge; the view was gorgeous. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Bob P. Jul 2019
This home is very pretty and relaxation. The location is great with a nice view of the lake. The outdoor patio is the best part. There were to negative things: first, a neighbor played loud music until midnight most every night. They have a rule in the whole area for no loud music after 9PM. Apparently the locals don`t know this. Second, the beds in the bedroom next to the master BR were very uncomfortable. They people stayilng in that room slept very poorly. The bed tend to slope to the middle. That particular br seems to be a converted garage, and is kind of an after thought to the rest of the house.

This house met my families needs for the Thanksgiving holiday. The kitchen was fully stocked, beds were comfy and there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Russ was super helpful and responsive to our needs! I will say we had a few noise complaints from neighbors and it was 11:30am and we were throwing a football around in the front yard. Just keep that in mind when booking. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Every thing was great except for the cockroaches that were in the house. The owner fairly compensated us for that problem This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The home was beautiful and spotless. The view was wonderful. Perfect for a girls weekend. I have nothing negative to say at all. The best VBRO I have ever stayed at--and I travel quite a bit! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Rebecca G. Jul 2018
We booked the house over 4th of July for a few days of fun on the lake. The home was perfectly suited to us and our grown children and grandbaby! The marina is 5+ minutes away, and we were able to enjoy the fireworks from the huge balcony. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay here in Lakeway, the deck overlooking the street and lake was used alot by all our family. We had three generations together- Grandma, Mom and three adult children plus spouses and this property had enough bedrooms and bathrooms for all.

The house seemed to be built midcentury and had some nice upates to the bathrooms plus new appliances in the kitchen. Also, the main living/kitchen/dining area was wide open with great views of the lake and front deck. We had a couple of dogs, and the neighborhood was nice for walking them, plus the house had a little fenced in yard up at the top of the driveway. All in all it was a great rental. Very nice neighborhood with lots of shopping/restaurants nearby.

The only drawback was that most of the mattresses were on the hard side, so I would encourage the owners to get some memory foam toppers. My siblings also mentioned the firm beds, but we all sleep on memory foam mattresses at our homes, so this is a matter of personal preference.

We had a great time at this property over the July 4th holiday. House was spotless, open and airy, quiet neighborhood. Well outfitted kitchen. Sleeps 10 very comfortably, never felt cramped. Nice view of the lake. Very close to the Lakeway Marina, boat and jet ski rentals available. Watched fireworks from the balcony. Convenient to many area restaurants and groceries. Owner was very helpful returning a forgotten item back to us. Excellent experience overall. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I rent homes often in Austin since my family visits once a month. I must say that this was the best experience we have ever had. When we arrived at the home, the owner of the property was bringing the trash bin from the road back to the driveway. I stopped him to ask if the bikes that were on his property were available for guests. He not only encouraged me to ride them, he actually drove us around lakeway to show us the biggest attractions. We were in awe! The owner was very nice and was very responsive to all of our questions during the stay.
My family and I truly had a wonderful time! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

My husband and I recently enjoyed a two week stay at this lovely property in Lakeway. The home is very clean, nicely updated and well equipped for a pleasant vacation stay. The neighborhood is ideal, with great lake views, convenient walking trails nearby and just a short distance from shops and dining. The owner has thoughtfully provided a binder with suggestions in the area for activities, dining and other important information for visitors and even stopped by to assure we were comfortable and had what we needed for our stay. We highly recommend this property if you are considering a visit to the Texas Hill Country! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house is decent.Rooms are large along with other living areas. The living room and kitchen along with the deck are awesome to hang out in. The house is stocked with everything possible. If you are thinking about bringing anything extra, don`t bother. It has a nice propane grill on the deck. We only had two issues with our stay. One beine termites or ants or whatever.. they were all over the kitchen area when u are trying to cook.. We opted to eat out the second day to not deal with this.. We called maintenance late night ad they responded quickly by sending a guy out to spray.. this helped but continued to see a few.. My wife and others were not satisfied with this.. the only other thing which was minor is the large guest room has the half bath.. it can sleep 6 but you have to walk across the house to shower.. if you have a house full of women, be patient for bathrooms. Overall we enjoyed the stay and service provided by turnkey. I recommend they exterminate the ants for future guest or expect worse reviews. Would book with them again. Would bump my rating up to 4 star without the ants This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Very nice house sitting on a bluff overlooking Lake Travis, great location. Upscale interior appointments, lots of room for a small gathering, floorplan was perfect for a small group. TurnKey Vacation Rentals provided some of the best customer service I`ve experienced in a long time. Overall, very above average home and both the management company and the owner were excellent to work with. Highly recommend.
