vacation rental description

STAY ON THE LAKE! CLOSEST TO TOWN! MAIN BASIN - NEAR DAM!

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.

WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH YOUR STAY AT THE PALMS?

Review submitted: March 23, 2014   Date of arrival: March 21, 2014

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.
