“beautiful family getaway!”
My family and i decided to find a rentalhouse for a weekend getaway on lake Austin. We couldn't have found a better house ! To start off this house's view was amazing! Great view from all around the house. Beautiful outdoor area to hang out at ! A balcony facing the lake that we enjoyed having our breakfast on . Great pool area we were able to BBQ and enjoy the pool. Also an amazing large deck that we enjoyed very much. All around i definitely recommend this house to any family that's looking for a lake house. We had the most amazing and unforgettable weekend :) thank you sam ellie
“Great spot for big groups who love the outdoors”
We had a blast renting Sam's beautiful home. I don't have too much to add that other reviewers haven't already said - the location is gorgeous, the house easily sleeps 18 people, and the house layout is perfect for larger groups. We rented the home for an annual guys getaway trip. It was the perfect spot for BBQ'ing, paddle boarding on the lake, and having a beer or two on the deck. Plus, it was only a cab ride away from Austin. Prior to renting the house, Sam (the owner) was fantastic with communication; he was quick to respond to all our emails, and even anticipated several questions we had. During the stay, Sam took a hands-off approach, which was very thoughtful - we didn't get to meet him, but he was available by phone or email whenever we had a minor question or two. We would rent this house again in a second.
“Great for large groups of guys”
I hosted a bachelor party of approximately 17 at Sam's House over this past weekend. Overall, it has a great location which allowed us to get to/from Downtown Austin with ease. The location on Lake Austin can't be beat. We spent a lot of time swimming off of the dock, grilling by the pool, and taking in the views from the upper balcony. There were easily 18-20 places for people to sleep. Overall I would recommend this place to large groups looking for a bonding experience.
“Fantastic lakefront property perfect for large groups”
Our group of 18 guys in town for a bachelor party could not have been more pleased with this property. If you're looking for gorgeous views and the perfect setting for outdoor/waterfront fun in the sun, this is your spot. The pictures don't do the house justice, because we were all blown away when we got to the property and saw how magnificent the views are. We spent hours down by the dock, and hours by the pool, and we were sad to leave at the end of the weekend. There are plenty of beds for a large group, and the house is set up perfectly for entertaining. We had such a good time at the house that we were almost hesitant to head into town on Friday and Saturday nights. Sam - the property manager - was extremely accommodating, and even let us check in a littler earlier than we had originally planned. I would absolutely recommend this property to any large group coming to Austin. Enjoy your stay!
“Spacious home, best views in Austin”
Like great views? Plenty of room for a large group? A great value? Responsive property management? Me too. This place was perfect for us. I travel to Austin a lot, and this may be my favorite property that I've stayed in. We had plenty of room for a group of 8. Two rooms have large beds in them, along with a bunk bed in each of these rooms. Two rooms are just bunk bed rooms, with four mattress, including one full. This place is ideal for people who want to be close to Austin but also want a private place to chill out. Gorgeous views from upper and lower decks and also the boat dock. VERY Austin experience, and beautiful views in the drive up and in the nearby park. The area is nice to go walking and biking in. Apparently the fishing is good too. We saw a number of boats who stopped 100 yards from the boat dock to fish. Bird watching from the top deck is great too. We saw a number of hawks fly at from one shore to the other. The bird sounds alone made it very peaceful. Great place to do yoga too. Sam was very accommodating, helpful and prompt about returning the security deposit. Because of the multiple levels of the house with the gorgeous views from various decks, it has stairs which were not a problem for any of us, but might be if you had mobility problems or had very small children. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home, and hope to stay there again.
“Perfect weekend getaway!”
Usually when you think of a bachelor party weekend, you think of Vegas or Bourbon Street, cheap hotels and late nights. We decided to change things up and rent a house on Lake Austin instead. We were all unsure of how things would unfold, until we pulled up to the this perfect weekend lake house. When you first walk in you don't quite know what to expect. It is hidden on the end of a street, engulfed in trees and natural surroundings giving you the perfect amount of privacy. Upon entering, the sliding glass doors encompassing the rear of the house draw you to the stunning view of Lake Austin. From that point forward, we knew we had picked the perfect house. The house has 4 "levels" of living space - the main floor offering a very spacious area of living room and lounging area (including a piano & television for entertainment). A small flight of stairs leads you to the open concept kitchen that you can see from the main floor - plenty of space to cook a feast or socialize in. The bottom two floors are full of PLENTY of bedrooms. The owner has really outdone themselves and provided enough sleeping space for the largest groups. From either the bottom floor or the top deck spiral staircase, you can access the pool and bottom patio area. From here you can take a path and stairs to one of the ultimate pieces of the property - the boat dock complete with a fire pit. This is the perfect place to relax late night and soak in the relaxation of lake austin. The location was surprisingly easy to access. You can take a short trip to fantastic dining at Steiner Ranch, or grab an Uber (or party bus) to take you to downtown Austin for the night. Local transportation was easy to work with and has no problem taking the quick trip out to pick you up. Overall this house provided the perfect weekend getaway for our group and allowed us to really enjoy ourselves with no problems. We would definitely recommend this house and plan on making it an annual trip.
“Birthday Party at the Bluff House”
I took 12 friends from Houston to stay on Lake Austin at the Bluff House. The property had plenty of space and deck areas to relax, grill, and make a fire on the dock. Only 20 minutes from 6th street and plenty of views to make this place enjoyable anytime of the year. Would highly recommend for larger groups wanting to be on the lake yet close to DT area.
“Great Large Lakefront House for Large Groups!”
There were 16 guys in austin for my bachelor party and could have not chosen a better location. The house is huge and right no the river (lake). There were plenty of rooms, beds and bunk beds etc. We had a great time and would recommend for any large groups looking for a great time, and privacy!
“Great property right on Lake austin”
Arrived with a group of 20 for a reunion and was extremely happy with the property. The place was clean, organized and contained all the amenities listed in the description. Plenty of space and everyone was able to get a bed. We were able to hang out by the pool and dock during the day and even had a boat come pick us up right at the house to take us out to the cove. The owner was very laid back and responsive. Overall, we would definitely recommend this propery to anyone thinking about renting in Lake austin.
“Awesome house for a big group!!! Stay here!”
My friends had a 10 year college reunion weekend here for 3 nights in November. It was awesome. There were plenty of places to sleep (loads of bunk beds and a few masters), tons of bathrooms/showers, and lots of common space to hang out. It is the perfect place for a large group to stay and spend some time together - like summer camp, but fancier! Sam, the landlord was really great to work with, was very responsive, and provided some extra info about the area for our stay. The lake was a little chilly in Nov, but still fun to swim in. I highly recommend this house to anyone wanting a fun weekend with a group! About a 30 min drive to downtown, but not bad. We rented minivans and it was a fun drive.
