Our beautiful cottage is located in Austin, TX just steps from Lake Travis. It sits near the end of a quiet street with friendly neighbors. We think you'll enjoy it as much as we do and we hope to have you as our guests soon!

The space

This unique one of a kind 1940's era cottage oozes with charm and sophistication. It has been completely updated inside and out for one purpose; to be the perfect vacation home. Whether you're looking for an active vacation or a relaxing one you'll want to stay here. For the active set, you can launch your boat just 10 minutes away at Mansfield Park on Lake Travis or rent a boat or other fun toys at Just for Fun at Emerald Point Marina which is also only 10 minutes away. For the party set, our Austin themed backyard is perfect for intimate celebrations. Whether it's a birthday, anniversary, or even a wedding, our backyard offers a live music stage, dance floor, picnic tables and a bar all in an eclectic, authentically Austin theme!
For the easy going set, you can just relax and take in the beautiful Texas sunsets from our front deck or stroll next door to Sundancer Grill for a margarita on their water front deck. Location, location, location. You're away from it all yet close to everything on the West side. You're only 30 minutes from downtown Austin and its live music and entertainment scene. Great dining choices are only a few minutes away and shopping and movie theaters are about 10 minutes away at the trendy new Hill Country Galleria. We also provide access to Mansfield Dam Park, The Lakeway Swim Center, and Emma Long Park. For more on reimbursement to these locations please review our Rental Agreement.

Our family had a great time at the cottage! Paige and Ron were great hosts and made us feel welcome. The house was clean and comfortable and close to lake activities. Although we didn't use it really the back yard is a great spot to hang out. Everything as described and we were very happy overall with our stay!

Beautiful home that fits 8 guests perfectly. We loved all of the fun activities the backyard provides. Such as the live stage , the bar , darts, and indoor game boards.

Paige and Ron's place was great. The house is brilliantly set up for groups and families and has an amazing outdoor area with a BBQ! As hosts Paige and Ron responded very quickly to all messages and gave some good recommendations. Our only problem was that we only booked one night. Would definitely stay again.

Paige And Ron User Profile

We’re a nice, fun loving, down to earth couple who split our time between Newport Beach, California and Austin, Texas. We’re two self-employed professionals who work from home and appreciate the flexibility that it offers. We love the great outdoors and enjoy most outdoor activities including camping and hiking in our state and national parks. Whenever possible, we love to travel and explore interesting places, as well as meeting interesting people which is the main reason we’ve decided to join Airbnb. If we’re going to take advantage of being guests of others, we might as well return the favor and host others since we can. We know you'll love our home as much as we do and we look forward to having you as our guests.
