This elegant lake front home on Lake Austin is exactly as it was described. Considering the home is so large it is very cozy, comfortable and immaculately clean. One can tell that the owner takes pride in this property. The entire home is beautifully appointed and contains everything one needs.
The outdoor area has an infinity edge swimming pool, large hot tub, a sun deck that will seat about 10 people and an outdoor fire place which was wonderful to take advantage of on a cold night since the owner left fire wood for us. There is a very friendly dog that stays in the back yard who did not bother us at all.
I would definitely consider coming back here for a longer stay in the future!
Ryan was a great host. He was quick to respond to any questions we had and was incredibly accommodating. The house was as described, but a couple things were a little disappointing. For one, when we checked in, the backyard was full of leaves and spiderwebs on all the furniture. When renting a house for $$$ I expect it to look immaculate upon check in. The care the owner provides his dog was a little troubling as well, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the house is an excellent property in a great location. I have rented many properties and never seen so many post-it notes telling the renter what not to do, but I guess all owners are different.
I truly enjoyed my stay at Gibson. Ryan arranged the booking and Paul took care of the rest. Paul's home was truly my home away from home for nearly 2.5 months. What an amazing host, I highly recommend staying here.
The house was great. It is a 2 bedroom/1 bath. One bedroom has a bed and a bunk bed in it, and the other room has a double sized bed. We had a group of 9 people (guy/girl mix) down for the 4th of July weekend. That number is on the high end if you want everyone to have a bed/share a bathroom, but we had a couple people sleep on couches and overall it really wasn't an issue for our group. The house is in a great location and has easy access to the water. We rented a pontoon boat on Friday and it picked us up right off the dock by the house, which made transporting things on and off the boat extremely convenient. There was no cable/internet connection, but that was not missed at all, and I believe that may be installed in the near future regardless. The one downside to the location of the house is that it is around 40 or so minutes to downtown Austin. However, we didn't rent a lake house because we wanted to go out to bars. There is a grocery store and liquor store nearby and a few restaurants as well if you want to eat out. We wanted to get away, and it was perfect for that purpose. The host was very accommodating and courteous. Overall, the lake house fit our needs perfectly and I would rent it again.
Stayed here over memorial day weekend for my buddy's bachelor party of 11 guys. The house was amazing and had everything we needed. Ryan was very helpful and made sure we were taken care of. Location is excellent as well. Right next door to Ski Shores Cafe and only about 20 min. to downtown Austin.
Only caveat - and this might not apply to all situations - but the owner left his dog there over the weekend. He was super friendly and self-sufficient, but we didn't know he would be there from the listing, so just know that's a possibility.
We dealt primarily with Paul the current occupant of the apt (which seemed typical for this apt) and Paul was a great host. Very responsive with coordinating our check in and during our stay for any questions we had. The apt was a great location- quick bus to downtown. The complex was awesome, as of May 2014 the complex was noticeably not entirely occupied so all the amenities (pool gym etc) were almost all to ourselves. Highly recommend this spot for your stay in Austin we are hoping to make it back ourselves

Ryan responded quickly to all messages, inquiries, and bookings. The owner, Paul, was very flexible in check-in/check-out times.
The apartment is very modern and new equipped with everything my five friends and I needed. Paul also provided us with an air mattress to use in the living room.
The location is close to many restaurants, Zilker Park, and Downtown. It is within walking distance to many restaurants and food trucks; Zilker Park and Downtown is a 5 minute/8 minute drive respectively. One could even walk or bike there if so inclined.
I would stay here again if available.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The house was great and I loved being on the lake. Kyle, the homeowner, was very friendly and took us on a tour of the area on his boat one morning. Getting in and out of the house was really easy. Everyone had a great time.
Ryan left our little beach cottage clean and tidy. We gladly welcome him to stay with us again.
