Please submit inquiries with your information via the contact form or email for a faster response. We give priority to HomeAway or VRBO Contact Forms and email. We are unable to return all of the calls received. We do, however, strive to respond to written inquiries as soon as possible. Thank you for understanding!

** NOTE ** If a child is able to walk, then they are counted as one of the 10 guests. We have had some guests assume that their children don't count toward the total occupancy in the past because they are small. The only time that I child would not count toward occupancy is if it is a baby that has not yet started walking.

The Palms on Lake Travis is a privately-owned, gated, high-end, resort vacation rental for those who wish to stay on Lake Travis. The Palms is conveniently located lakeside, 1 mile from the Oasis ('The Sunset Capital of Texas') on the scenic Comanche Trail drive around the main basin of Lake Travis. This location is prime for those who want to enjoy Austin - it is only a 30 minute drive to downtown Austin and about a 35 minute drive to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport!

There are two guest units on The Palms property that sleep up to 10 in total. For parties of 6 or less, we can offer the Garden House only at a lower cost.

A cove and covered dock is available to use for swimming, fishing, and sunbathing. Boaters may tie up to the dock with advanced notice. A public boat launch is located just across the main basin from us (you can see it from the property) at Mansfield Dam - it's about a 3 mile boat ride.

WEDDINGS AND EVENTS: Please note that, due to our setup, we are unable to participate in weddings or other events with more than 25 total guests. We also have chosen not to participate in bachelor parties of any sort. We welcome out of town guests and family members of the bridal party to stay with us, and we will make every effort to ensure they have an extremely enjoyable stay in Austin!

CALENDAR:

On dates where we have a partial rental (Garden House Only or Lakefront Suite Only), and the other portion is available for rent, it will appear as a Tentative Rental on our calendar. On those dates, we will have availability left for smaller groups of 4-6 guests at a lower rate, depending upon which unit is already taken. Feel free to reach out and ask us about those dates.

Our preferred method of contact is the Request Form on HomeAway or email. We have day jobs and receive too many calls to return in a timely manner. We have found that we can respond to you much more quickly via email.

About the Owner

We live on the property. We are there if you need something, but otherwise we stay out of your way. You might see us in the driveway or walking down through the backyard to get to the dock. We have both traveled a lot, and we strive to make The Palms everything that we want when we travel.

Guestbook comments from the manager

FIVE STARS - Our daughter's July 13 wedding in nearby Lakeway was our reason for being at The Palms, where we stayed along with the bridesmaids for the long weekend. Couldn't have asked for more! Perfect hosts, gorgeous grounds, lovely guest accommodations (plenty of bathrooms!), two full kitchen areas, lounging room, sitting pool and a breeze for the hot July days and evenings. Access to dozens of restaurants, stores, and venues. We enjoyed brunches and sunset gatherings where 10 to 20 folks had plenty of room, and ten plus for sleeping accommodations. Would love to return in the future...just the two of us next time! Rated The Palms 5 Stars for all 5 categories: Value, Check-In, Location, Cleanliness, Comfort, and Service

We stayed at The Palms last weekend and everything was perfect. The grounds and the view is unbelievable. Robin (the owner) was there to greet us and show us around the property. I would recommend this place to anyone. It made for a relaxing girls' getaway.

Absolutely beautiful home, property, and view!

  • 5 of 5
Both the Garden house and the Lakefront suite were amazing! Lots of space with everything that we needed for a great girls weekend! The backyard is beautiful, with a large hot tub. I wish we could have stayed longer than a weekend. We definitely will recommend this place to others and hopefully get to come back soon! We absolutely loved the lake house, and the owners were very welcoming and accommodating.

5 STARS ISNT ENOUGH !

  • 5 of 5
Anyone looking for a getaway that feels like home? We found it here at The Palms! The hosts are as accommodating as the property. We have spent several years staying at many of locations offering the works. Robin and Rodney have gone the extra mile in ensuring that their guest feel at home and have everything needed. After just one night we wanted to begin booking future dates to stay at this location. All you need to bring is a grocery bag full of your favorite goodies and your laundry. You will find a kitchen better equipped than any we have found. All quality spices and cooking accessories are already stocked for you. This IS the best represented property we have found. Everything you see in the advertising is real to life. To Robin and Rodney... Your personal touches and attention to detail have created an atmosphere that is a true stress reliever. Thank You So So Much! See ya again very soon.

The place was beautiful! perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5
It was beautiful. Lots to do. The houses had everything we could ask for. The outdoor kitchen grill area was our favorite part. We had activities planned outside of the property that we cancelled because we enjoyed relaxing/playing/hanging out on property. And Robin was very sweet and helpful with anything we needed (which wasn't much because everything is already taken care of and set up so well!).

Location

From the Owner

The Palms is located on the gorgeous Lake Travis main basin. Lake Travis is a rock lake, which means the water is generally a sparkly blue color (vs the brownish water found in a muddier lake). The cliffs around it add to the beauty of the area. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with a scenic view and privacy, this is the spot for you!

Amenities

From the Owner

The main basin of Lake Travis is the closest area to downtown on the 65 mile lake. We are also conveniently located just a mile down the road from Oasis Texas, with several restaurants, shops, and live music! Since The Palms is on the main basin, we have a beautiful view of the lake, and you can walk down to the dock from the backyard! If you have a boat, you can even tie it up to the dock at no extra charge! We strive to provide everything you need for a relaxing getaway. We take care of condiments like salt, pepper, sugar, ketchup, mustard, mayo, pickles, butter, and jam. We provide all the fixin's for your first morning's breakfast - coffee, eggs, milk, juice, and bread. A leisurely start is a great way to kickoff your time away. If you find you need other things, there is a grocery store about 3 miles away. The Palms is a very convenient and private lakeside retreat for couples, families, reunions, relaxing girls' weekends, and the like. We are always available to recommend nearby dining, suggest spa or golf locations, and provide ideas for fun activities for all ages. Many of our guests decide to just stay and enjoy property, and quite a few choose to extend their trips an extra day or two if availability permits.
