The Space

Beautiful & spacious 4BR / 3.5BA home with fantastic views of Lake Austin and the 360 (Pennybacker) Bridge. The property features a secluded limestone trail down to a peaceful edge of Lake Austin great for fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding or just relaxing in a hammock.

Two large decks with great lake views offer plenty of outdoor space to grill, relax, and watch the fantastic sunsets. Interior includes two fireplaces, several flat screen televisions with cable and wireless internet. Master BA has a deep super relaxing jetted tub as well.

Less than 8 miles to downtown and Zilker Park and approximately 21 miles from the airport. The cozy Lake Austin subdivision is very peaceful with close proximity to some of Austin's famous landmarks like Lake Austin, Mount Bonnell, and several great parks for hiking and biking. The home is very close to grocery stores and a wide variety of great dining.

Bus service is available to downtown less than 1 mile away or a cab ride downtown is $20 and takes about 10 minutes.

The home is a one of the few spots close to downtown that has full access to Lake Austin and stunning views. Can arrange for kayak, and stand-up paddleboard renting as well.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The house was gorgeous. Very clean and spacious. It was close to Austin so you could easily get downtown. It was a short walk to the lake. We stayed for 4th of July and had a spectacular view of Lake Austin and the fireworks. John was a amazing host. He was very easy to get in touch with, answered all questions quickly and thoroughly. He was a superb host, even left some beer for us! I would definitely love to go back.

  • John's house was perfect for our group of four. Lots of space, clean and comfy. John welcomed us, showed us around and had a six-pack of Shiner Bock in the fridge. Highly recommended.

  • John was a fantastic host and generous with amenities that we weren't expecting (like soaps, shampoos, etc.). The house is beautiful and well kept, the views are amazing, it's in lovely neighborhood and is a nice, short hop to downtown for SXSW. Would definitely stay here again.

  • I stayed at Johns place for two months this summer and it was such a great time. The house is in a location that you can take advantage of the best of both worlds: close to downtown but right on the water. Go down to the dock and watch gorgeous sunsets or take one of Johns kayaks to the west for lunch at county line or to the east and float past some of the most beautiful homes on the lake (take the first cove to the east go under the little bridge to your right where there is an amazing little canal). I even caught a couple five lb bass right off the dock. Thanks John for a great stay.

  • A large nice home with amazing views over the lake..Beds are comfortable as our the furnishings of the home. We pulled a boat and went down to the boat dock and spent the day on the lake. The location is great with easy access to downtown restaurants and music..along with having The County Line Barbque around the corner and Chez Zee for Sunday brunch a 3 minute drive..HOme is very private and a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. John is a great host and very easy to work with. check in and out was easy. Thanks and hope to come again!!

  • This house, situated a short 15 minute drive from downtown Austin and is an incredible place to explore Austin from. Situated a short walk down from the water, the house has two stories, is carpeted, big televisions in many of the rooms, internet and a great kitchen if you want to cook. It is extremely comfortable. John is an excellent and attentive host which just adds to the experience.
