We stayed here on a timeshare exchange only because we were visiting family very close by, given the poor reviews. The complex is about 45 minutes to an hour outside Austin so day trips to Austin and San Antonio (about two and a half hours away) are doable, as are trips to the LBJ ranch and other parts of the...

Stuck in early 70s. Only one shower, and jacuzzi was not an option from its looks. Glass on every surface including bathroom. Apparently everything is inventoried ( ie dishes, silverware, etc ) and nothing extra is included. Seems that was the theme of these condos...repair only to the minimum needed (chipped sinks etc.) and don't update beyond fixing what has... More

The general manager here needs to take a lesson in customer relations. After pounding on our door on our departure date and accusing us of having dogs in the room (we didn't), he repeatedly reminded us that checkout was at 11 am. We own (outright) a 2 unit RCI property in Las Vegas. This property doesn't even come close. It... More

Just needed a place for the weekend so I didn't need much. Decided to stay here and I wish I had looked elsewhere. The place is rundown, outdated, and the beds are horrendous! On my last night I found a 8 in long centipede crawling across the floor! Nothing to do in Lago Vista if your wanting to check out... More

I purchased a Living Social that was for 3 days, 2 nights before I read the reviews. I wasn't expecting much because of the recent reviews but the condo overall was very nice. The condo is older, but was pleasant enough. The AC worked great, the condo was clean. There were some items left in the drawers in the bedroom... More

Older resort that has seen better days. Staff fabulous...welcoming and will try to accommodate guests to the best of their ability. The actual rooms are very, very dated and need updating. The baths were the worst....and is why I rated this site so low. Master bath was old, old, dated and dirty from years of use....guest bath had been updated... More

Granted it is not as visually appealing as some places but the unit we had was very clean. A one story floor plan with the decor mostly outdated but still in good condition. Fully stocked with many appliances, sundries, with a shower and air conditioning that were well maintained. The amenities of the property seemed okay, but limited, with no... More

The linen was unchanged on one of the single beds. You could smell the hair odor of the previous occupant and there was a yellow saliva stain on the pillow case. Floors in kitchen were sticky and dirty. Pubic hairs in the dresser drawers in the master bedroom. Being old and worn out is one thing but there is no... More

Yes, it is an older complex, but a great little get away. Not snazzy, but the rates are cheaper than other places on Lake Travis. Everything was clean, had a nice deck with a view of the golf course, (city-owned and only $35 for a round of golf with 1/2 a cart included). Little outdoor grills all around the complex.... More

Rooms are out of date. No view of the lake. The rental fee for boat and jet skies is $85 an hour. No beach. There is a pool but it's on the other end of property and a long walk with hardly any shade to get there. No boat ramp for guests. You have to drive to a private boat... More
