Lake Travis

by | Aug 31, 2016 | Austin Events | 0 comments

With all the recent rain, Lake Travis Austin is back at full capacity.  What better time to get out there and enjoy it?  Culturemap has a variety of lake Travis rentals to make your trip a success.  

Looking to spend the night or a few days on the lake?  Rent a houseboat like the Dream Catcher.  This luxurious home on the water is over 2500 square feet and has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a high-end kitchen, grilling area, hot tub, waterslide, jet skis, and kayaks.  It can accommodate 10 guests overnight and 50 guests for gatherings.

You’ll be treated like royalty, with extra perks from a concierge such as grocery delivery, catering, a private chef and bartender, and even limo service!  If you stay several days, you’ll be taken to a secluded cove on the lake and then brought back to the dock at the end of your trip.  The Dream Catcher can be rented for a day, a night, a weekend, or even a week.  Rates for a weekend, which is three days and two nights, begin at $2,995 and Holiday weekends, which are four days and three nights are $3,995.  Rent the Dream Catcher for a whole week for $4,995.

A much more affordable way to enjoy a boat cruise on the river is a pontoon boat rental.  Rentals start at $110 per hour and accommodate ten to sixteen people.  They allow for skiing, kneeboarding, or tubing.  Amenities vary by the boat you rent, but generally include Bimini top, stereo system, seating, loungers, a ski tow, a rear deck, and boarding ladders.  VIP Marina also rents party barges, houseboats, SeaDoos, jet skis, paddleboards and ski boats.  

Prefer a romantic getaway on dry land with the lake nearby?  Robin’s Nest is just thirty minutes from downtown Austin and sits on a quiet cove with a private dock and within walking distance of the Sail and Ski Yacht Club and the Sundancer Grill.   

You will have your choice of lodging in a remodeled rock fishing lodge, a modern waterfront cabin, rooms, or suites.  Some of the accommodations allow pets, and a few have kitchens or kitchenettes.  Property amenities include a hot tub, fire pit, and a homemade breakfast.  

Fishing more your thing?  How about a trip with an award-winning professional fisherman!  For $300 for four hours or $500 for a full day, Robert Brown, aka the Bassman, will take you and up to two other people out on a boat with everything you need to get a great catch.  You just bring a valid Texas fishing license and the sunscreen, hat and refreshments!  

Windy Point Park is on Comanche Trail two miles away from the Oasis.  For just $8 per day per person or $10 for overnight camping, you can enjoy picnic tables, restrooms, changing facilities, a concession area, protected swim and dive areas, onsite scuba air fills, and access to a boat launch ($10).  Kayaks, paddleboards, and sailboats are available for rent as well from Austin Sailboat Rentals.  

Prefer living by the lake to just visiting?  There are several luxurious apartments near the water to satisfy your need to enjoy the surf 365 days a year!
