Chris is an amazing host. He made sure that the fridge was stocked with food and beer before we got there and was a general pleasure to deal with. Very flexible in terms of logistics. The listing was exactly what we expected, in that it was awesome! The picture of the deck should say a lot, but you really have to see this place for yourself to appreciate the gorgeous views of Lake Austin. The place we recently redone as well, so everything is pretty much brand new. I couldn't recommend this place or Chris enough to anyone.

Our group had an amazing stay over sxsw. Chris was a fantastic host and made himself available over the entirety of our stay. The indoor/outdoor speaker system, grill, and deck furniture made for a perfect scene to enjoy the lake. Wide availability of private car services allowed for easy commutes to downtown and back. Can't speak highly enough about the cleanliness, overall quality of the lake house, and Chris' hospitality. Looking forward to next time.

Chris's rental is absolutely wonderful, and the pictures do not do the property justice. The location and appointments in the home are 1st class. We had great evening sunsets, and I would HIGHLY recommend staying here. Chris was easily accessible, and made sure that we had everything we needed. We will certainly stay here again for our trips to Austin.

Chris, was a great host and and really made our group feel welcome. The house is amazing. Great location, only minutes to the HulaHut and downtown. Has a beautiful view and a deck that is perfect for relaxing and grilling. We rented a boat with driver and they picked us up directly from the house dock on the lake. We also loved relaxing in the water right in front of the deck. Staying at Chris house was a much better decision than other houses in lake Travis that are far as away from downtown. We can't wait to be back. I would recommend Chris house without hesitation. Marcelo

Thanks to Chris and his hospitality, we had an amazing time at SXSW. The place is perfectly situated right on the lake. Close enough to easily get to downtown, but far enough away to enjoy the beauty of Austin. Chris went out of his way to make us comfortable including buying extra air mattresses for our group and stocking the place with food and beverages (including beer and wine). Highly recommend Chris and and his beautiful house for your visit to Austin.

I moved to Austin 15 yrs ago from Chicago and truly enjoy living in this city. I work at a medium-sized investment management company and frequently travel. When not at work, I'm outdoors - running around Town Lake, waterskiing, fishing and camping. I can do these activities almost year-round (went surfing on Lake Austin last December). My lakehouse is a great destination for people looking to enjoy all that Austin has to offer - views of downtown Austin and the hill country; swimming/boating/fishing on my boat dock; and less than 10 mins to downtown.
