Everything is bigger in Texas, and Lake Travis is no exception. Lake Travis, the crown jewel of the Central Texas Highland Lakes is one of the largest and most popular destinations in the state. Its clear blue waters and miles of shoreline make it a must-see visit for everyone, including you! Outdoorsy folks will enjoy the promising greenery, hiking paths, and even popular natural attractions like the Hamilton Pool Road, Pace Bend Park, and maybe even get some to conquer their fear of heights in Lake Travis Zipline Adventures. Foodies will have a ba good time trying the local goods and eating in the best restaurants like The Oasis on Lake Travis, and Shack 512 for some great seafood grub. Since it’s such a desirable vacation spot and a promising tourist destination at that, check out some of these Airbnb vacation rentals in Lake Travis to make your search for a vacation rental come to an end.
Watch as much HGTV as I do? Probably not, but ever catch an episode of Tiny House Hunters and are curious how and why someone would want to live in a tiny home? Well now’s your chance to see what all the hype is about. This tiny home sits right on Lake Travis near Crosswater Marina, giving you 24/7 access to the lake and kayaks, a zip line, trapeze, and fire pit. You better book this Airbnb before I book them all up.

This spacious guest house gives you amazing views of Lake Travis and what more could you want when visiting the lake? But, say one day you aren’t feeling the lake, instead, you can just lounge around in the pool, which guests always have access to. If you’re looking for a spot that is close to the lake, has all the amenities you could want, and is budget-friendly, the Austin casita is for you.
