House and its pool area sit off a cliff overlooking Lake Austin with a large dock for boats and to swim off of. It is 20 minutes from downtown Austin. Property is very private. There is a very large park near the property. Area is great for hiking. House has pool and great views of lake austin. House sits on a bluff.

Great Place for me and my friends 30yr high school reunion. Huge place, sleeps 15, plenty of parking ,2 refrigerators and lrg screen TV. Liked having the boat dock and had the best time on the Pontoon Boat every day cruising Lake Austin.

Recently stayed at the bluff house. Was the perfect house for our larger group. Great outdoor set up on the lake as well as having a pool. Would love the opportunity to stay there again

We had such an amazing time time at this house! It is spacious and easily slept all 18 guys. Sam was extremely easy to work with! The views overlooking Lake Austin were just amazing. The house sits up about 100 feet from the lake with multiple outdoor sitting areas for viewing. Our only issue was the distance into downtown Austin (about 30 minute cab), but the house and amenities made up for that.

Management response:

That weekend they were doing a lot of work on Mopac the main artery to downtown. Normally it is 20 minutes to downtown without traffic.

Stayed comfortably with a group of 18 guys. Everything in the house was in working condition. The covered deck was perfect for relaxing and watching the boats go back and forth. The dock was great for hanging in the sun, jumping into the water to cool off, and do some fishing. Easy enough location to call an Uber to get downtown or head up to lake Travis. Owner was quick to respond on rental inquiries...

This is a spacious, elegant house overlooking beautiful Lake Austin. It was perfect for our extended family get together with a large living room and patios overlooking the lake. Plenty of space to entertain and has a large full kitchen and lots of bathrooms and sleeping quarters. Kids enjoyed the pool and adults enjoyed the lakeside deck. The home's owner Sam is an excellent host and very pleasant to work with to ensure you have...
