“Second Stay as Good as the First!”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Nothing demonstrates satisfaction more than referrals and repeat stays. We have suggested this property for all of our friends, and 3 months after our first stay at this property we were back for our second stay. Even when we like a property, I will almost always try a different property on a return trip - looking for something a little better. No so for Lakeway/Austin. We found this jewel and will look no further. Beautiful, clean, great views, gracious hosts, gorgeous views. All at an extremely reasonable price. Why look elsewhere?

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
