Almost nice
3/5 stars
So this is a nice place but inside pool was closed outside pools are so hot due to no shade all afternoon that it’s like swimming in a hot tub. Our unit was nice if you didn’t look too close cob webs on the roof, paint peeling around the bathroom vent AC didn’t work well and took a full day to get cool. The extra AC unit in the Master pops the breaker and and was not attached to the outside vent so hot air was coming in. I fixed that but with a little effort this place could be nicer. Ataman has leather peeling off.
- David

We are sorry to hear that you did not have a better experience. The Island is doing renovations to the indoor pool which is out of our control. The HOA said the renovations should be completed soon to provide an even better indoor pool experience for future guests. We are sorry to hear that the breaker tripped causing the unit to be warmer than usual but glad that you were able to reset the breaker to bring the temperature down. We provide Central AC as well as a portable AC to ensure the unit is cool and comfortable.

Cant say enough great things about this place... its a private island... 2 big out door pools w 2 Jacuzzis... overlooking the beautiful lake. 1 giant indoor pool with jacuzzi aswell... we enjoyed all of them daily!!! .. fitness room has all the state of the art equipment and a bonus Sauna which was awesome after a nice dip in the pool. The condo was immaculate with 2 spacious bedrooms and baths...one of the bathrooms was humongous. With giant shower stall...double sinks and a BIG jet tub...AND a massive walk in closet!! Couldnt ask for anything more...fully equipped kitchen and washer dryer...We enjoyed hanging out on the comfy patio furniture on our private balcony and watching deer running around everywhere. Truly, one of the BEST vacations we have ever had. ❤️

Great location
4/5 stars
Our stay was pleasant. Steven the host was very kind and accommodating. He even extended our check out time to 12 pm. The unit was clean and well stocked. However there were a couple of things that weren’t awesome. The a/c needs work. It took a very long time to cool. But eventually did. The host tried to arrange repair twice but had cancellations each time. The ceiling fan in the living room wouldn’t move very fast, which was important since the a/c was struggling. But there were box fans in the closets so that helped a lot. The unit needs some updates for sure for the hefty rental price. $750 for two nights! But overall the stay was good.

great Memorial Day stay
5/5 stars
Everything went well - issue came up with a pump in the building which caused AC to be out for awhile but was fixed same day and there was a back up AC unit in the condo which I was able to utilize. Well stocked kitchen. WiFi worked well. I didn't realize how low the water was around and in Lake Travis - we had to drive down the road a bit to be able to launch jetskis.

Nice condo

We had a pleasant stay at the two bedroom unit on the Island at Lake Travis. It was beautiful and well furnished. The welcome basket of snacks, water and wine were very much appreciated. Everything was very clean and all of the appliances were in working order. Thank you for renting this unit to us, I’d recommend it to friends and family and I’m sure we’ll be back!

Great stay
5/5 stars
We recently stayed here for a girl's trip and had a great time! The condo was very clean and was stocked with everything we needed for our stay. The pool area was nice and relaxing. The views of the lake were beautiful and we especially enjoyed seeing all of the deer. The location of the condo was near a town with stores and restaurants. We also did the nearby winery. The hosts were very personable and answered any questions before and during our stay. We are already talking about coming back next summer with our husbands and the boat!

Great for families
5/5 stars
Everything was beyond amazing. The place lived up to the pictures, exactly! The nature surrounding was beautiful and great atmosphere along with a fishing paradise. Plenty of spots to fish from with an abundant amount of giant fish. Our room was spacious and the jacuzzi tub in the master was a bonus! Our children enjoyed the double beds in their room, the balcony and feeding the deers in the evening time. We walked in with a snack bowl and beverages, which made us feel so welcomed. They also had a binder with useful information, restaurants nearby as well as boat/ski rentals that were in the area. Super host is an understatement, the hosts went above and beyond to ensure the room was clean and ready to go, including pots/pans, coffee, cooking utensils, cups, etc.. Washer/ Dryer in the unit helped with keeping our clothes clean and dry. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a beautiful getaway without traveling too far. We will for sure be coming back. Thank you for having us!

Cute Condo
5/5 stars
My Wife and I took a quick weekend-getaway trip out to The Island and stayed in this condo. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to recharge after months in of staring at the same walls. The pools and exercise room were open and everyone was practicing social distancing and wearing masks - we felt very safe while there and will definitely be back.
