Fantastic river cabin that sleeps up to 12 people in a very Eclectic "Keep Austin Weird" styled lakehouse. Perfect for large family gatherings, birthday celebrations, bachelor/ette parties. Enjoy the huge fire pit, Tiki bar, bbq pit, and much more. Very secluded end of the street location. Street view photo is not accurate here on Air B N B.. Lake Travis water level is now back up. "We"re not fancy but we are fun"
Interaction with Guests
This is a turn key rental. All you need is your own groceries and toiletries. I will not be on the property but i will be available to answer any questions.
We are at the end of the street so it is very private.
Leave the house as close to the condition that you received it. No dirty dishes in the sink, bag all trash and turn off all a/c units and lights when you leave. No loud music outside after 10 p.m.
Had my bachelor party here (Diane's better half speaking) and Steven was a great host off the bat welcoming us with a bottle of alcohol to start things off. There were a couple of maintenance issues that were in the process of being fixed or had notes written stating the issue which was fine with us (deck being refurbished, master toilet valve and minor leak in one bedroom). However, when we arrived the water valve to refill the master toilet was listed as "should remain off" but was left on when we arrived (the toilet pump is broken i believe). We just turned the valve off, cleaned up the puddle from the overflowing toilet reservoir and used the other bathroom for shower and toilet. Even with a few maintenance issues everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time, just wish the river was flowing!
Steven couldn't have been a better host. The place was stocked with water, fresh towels, plenty of blankets, and a couple of bottles of wine (nice touch), etc. The only uncooperative party to our weekend was the weather, but the house was the perfect refuge. Its very open, with a lot of character. Loved the nautical theme. Would definitely revisit.
Thanks Thomas. I agree with your comment about not being made to feel that you are under surveillance by the host, that is why i prefer to have everything ready (ac on in hot weather heaters on in cold weather, music playing, wine chilled, and most importantly the key waiting for you to get there whenever you like). About the shower water pressure ( i do have low water usage showers because we are in an extended drought at this time). Thanks and come back soon.
The house was exactly as described... a little quirky, but just what we needed for a fun weekend away. The house easily slept the nine people in our party; dishes, towels, etc. were plentiful; the house was clean; and most important in South Texas, the AC worked!
A tip for anyone staying in the house: the road dead ends into the property. Just keep driving. Our GPS told us we had missed the address, so we executed a 12 point turn on a narrow road before figuring out we hadn't gone far enough.
Thanks Steven for a great weekend!
This is a great cabin for bachelorette parties!!! A house on the end of the street which has tons of character! Be warned though we found several large spiders and a cicada around the cabin, so I wouldn't recommend it to those who want the outdoors to stay outdoors. A great view of the lake in the back with ample chairs to eat outside if you'd like to do so. There are also several wineries within a 20 minutes drive out. Stephen was great to work with and gave recommendations on where to go!
Steven was awesome! We booked this cabin just a weekend before and he accepted us and had everything ready. The cabin is much better than the images on here in my opinion. It felt super home-y. He also left lots of firewood for us to burn indoor, and it just made everything cozy and chill.
The only thing was that during the weekend we were there, it rained one night. One of the bedroom had a leak, and the water got all over the bed. And there was another leak in the living room.
but everything else was awesome for our stay!
thank you steven!
