Even though the facility is somewhat remote and outdated, we enjoyed almost 2 weeks just prior to Thanksgiving. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the unit was very clean and comfortable. Kitchen provided limited pots and pans but enough we were able to cook several meals. Plenty of towels and linens available. Bathrooms very dated but clean. You... More

While the property is a little dated, they are in the slow process of updating it. Currently, new sheets and towels have shown, next are the bathroom re-models. While there, we saw TONS of deer. So COOL! In addition, delish restaurants near-ish by, rent a boat on property, swimming pool on site, Basketball and tenis. 2 bed, 2 bath (master... More

My husband and I used our timeshare to come here during on off - peak weekend. The deer pictures are real! They are all over the property. I thought it was great to feed them and watch them come so close. The rooms are like condos! Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a full kitchen. We really enjoyed cooking there. The... More

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 The place is rundown, outdated, and the beds are horrendous!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
