If I could give them a 0 I would. This condo is in HORRIBLE conditions!!!! It's old, out-dated, disgusting, and just plain out TRASH!!!! They should be embarrassed to rent this condo out to anyone. The furniture is old, the ceiling is disgusting, they have a shelf as a table with linens on it, the restroom curtains are yellow and... More

Beautiful place. It's not an island any more but still has a lake view and easy access. The amenities are great. We rented a condo directly from the owner, it had 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom with easy access to one of 3 pools. Beautiful landscape. The sunset is priceless.

My family stayed at The Island on Lake Travis and had a great time. It is somewhat isolated but close enough to town and other places where you do not have to drive a long distance. The grounds were well kept and the condo was very clean and somewhat up to date. (the beds in unit 1214 were showing there... More

We visited the island for a weekend getaway and had a blast. Being out in the Texas Hill Country was nice and the drive out was very scenic. I will have to admit the resort is little out of the way and the grocery store is about 10 minutes both ways but this was what we were looking for, a... More

The magic is gone all that is left is an island that has seen its better days long ago in Largo Vista. This confused retirement home does not know what it wants to be. But it will never be a resort. AT first glance the place looks like the Driscoe on Lake Travis but as you enter the structure it... More

We stayed here for two nights, June 07,08. Our friend was getting married nearby and the whole wedding party stayed here. These are all privately owned condos. They all have kitchens and some are quite nice. Ours was less so. It had a balcony that overlooked the water but the hornets were nasty outside. The pull out couch was very... More

The Island is a gorgeous condo complex on Lake Travis. The condo's are privately owned, so I can only comment on the particular one that we stayed in. The grounds are lovely, with groups of deer roaming around. There are three pools, a fitness center & a bar/restaurant. There were tons of kids for my son to play with. There... More

We enjoyed our stay here, but it is quite isolated from dining & shopping. It also had a bit of a deserted feel to it as there didn't appear to be many guests. We enjoyed the pools and the grounds, and especially enjoyed the deer. Our room was clean and spacious and we liked the code entry on the doors... More

My fiance and I stayed here for a weekend last summer. The condo we rented was very pretty and the grounds were well maintained.There are deer all over the grounds which I loved. I am very particular about where I stay and this place was wonderful. I am planning to come back this summer. You really won't find a better... More

We stayed as a guest of a condo owner in building three on the first floor, facing the lake. The lake is very low, but was still quite a pretty view with the rocky sides and all. The unit itself was updated and immaculately clean. It was a small unit but perfect for our family of three. Many of these... More
