“The yard and the porch are what make this place spectacular”, guest Charlie reviews. This residence is located on a huge lot and has quality furnishings, that guarantee a splendid stay. However, the magic is in the 1500 square foot (139.4 square metre) rooftop deck and its dazzling sitting area - the perfect spot to enjoy Lake Austin’s famous sunsets. It’s extremely convenient for swimming, fishing and lakeside entertainment with family & friends. Additionally, guests have praised Superhost Dallas’ attention and the location of this listing: it’s a short drive to downtown and still secluded enough to make you feel in another world.
