We chose The Beachhouse for our family of 3 to stay in the last few days. Although the size of the cabin was great, king size bed in one room and a queen sized bed in the next, it didn’t feel or smell very clean despite the 5 air fresheners dotted around. The bathroom needs a good clean and paint. There’s mould growing on one of the pictures and the back of the door has so many dirty finger prints, it could be mistaken for a bathroom in a jiffy lube. When you come back from a day on the Lake, you want your family to feel clean. I can honestly say after a shower we didn’t feel it. We didn’t get housekeeping at all over our few days stay. We paid for the breakfast. It was.....okay. It kept us alive. There was coffee but we could only have it black as they run out of creamers. We did take the opportunity of using their kayaks though for an hour or so...that was fun.

We stayed at the Cove BNB this past weekend and had the best time! They have docks, so we brought our canoe with motor and were able to motor around the lake several times over the weekend. We stayed at the Cove's Beach House, which is a suite. It had a king bed upon entering the unit and then a separate room that had a queen bed. It also had a kitchenette with an under-the-counter fridge, microwave and coffee maker with coffee. The Cove had a full communal kitchen for the guests to use or get things, like dishes and silverware. It also had a dining area. For extra (and not alot extra) you could order breakfast which was delicious and fresh. Outdoors, there was a gazebo that was nice, some hammocks. Was just what we needed to chill and relax! We will definitely be going back!

I've been coming to Austin TX, Lake Travis for 4 years and once I found The Cove bnb, I didn't need to look for anywhere else, I've been back multiple times. This unique slice of paradise is so quiet and clean, its perfect for bigger groups or couples depending on their units. They have a few other properties nearby as well one with a pool; we were exiting as a wedding group came in. We brought our dog and she had a blast in the lake a short walk in the backyard! I've seen the lake rise and fall over the past few years and lake access was never an issue here, the guests in nearby unit took us on boat ride that they launched from The Cove bnb. At night we had an awesome fire and the stars were just amazing. Truly one of the best weekends I'veI have had in a long time thanks again Cove bnb!

We booked two nights through The Cove’s website for Labor Day Weekend. We brought our 17 and 21 year old boys with us for an end of summer trip. They both have busy schedules and we were looking forward to spending time with them. We hired a pet sitter, carefully packed everything we’d need for a vacation at the lake, including our scuba gear with plans to scuba at Windy Point Scuba Park. We drove up from San Antonio (thank God we didn’t live farther away as some visiting might). The welcome email had directions with a code to open a box that contained the key. When we arrived we walked up to our cabin and punched in the code. No key. We looked in the window and the bed appeared to have been sat on. We called the owner and it was immediately confirmed that they had double booked it. She said she’d be kicking them out though because they only paid half of what we did because they reserved through Booking.com. About that time the young couple were walking hand in hand up from the lake to their/our cabin. We began searching online for another option and told the owner no thanks, there is no way we were going to kick the couple out. Awkward!! They told us we’d get our money back in 48 hours. There was no attempt to assist us in finding another option for our stay. Lake Travis was out as everything was booked for Labor Day. There was no offer to comp our hotel stay elsewhere. Nothing except verification that the reservation was in our name and they aren’t sure how the couple got the code:-/ So no scuba weekend at the lake for us. We were too wore out and disappointed to drive home last night. We stayed at on old Omni off the highway in Austin, which fortunately had availability. We’re out the money for our pet sitter, scuba tank and gear rental, a nights stay at the Omni, jet ski rental for Saturday morning, and most importantly our weekend by the lake. We made our reservation a month ago and had been planning for some time. What an incredible disappointment. Don’t waste your time and money like we did!

We looked for a place close to Austin where we could escape for a few days (after visiting family there) and we like different types of accomodations, not just hotels. We found this place via our search from abroad. Glad we did! Traveling with a small, not-yet-can swim child, we wanted a safe place on the lake. We didn't realize we wouldn't be overlooking the lake from the porch (we had the Beach House, which was a bit misleading), but since the mosquitoes really liked us, we didn't make much use of the porch anyhow (except for a few brief snoozes in the hammock). The yard was great for him to run around and kick the ball in. The water was a bit too murky for shallow-water swimming (but he didn't mind) and I guess I expected more of a beach-like area (to lay and sunbathe, etc.). I didn't see any lawn chairs I could use or transport down to the shore. We used the peddle boat to cross over to Emerald Point once for dinner and once to rent a ski boat at Just4Fun (on Tuesdays, you can rent for 2 hours, get 2 free). I was keen to kayak, but the life vests were a bit outdated and sadly there were no kids life vests, so I didn't take my kid out even for a short spin in the cove. We didn't see an outside shower to rinse off with, so we used the water hose to rinse off and not track dirt and grime into the house. I felt bad using the pristine white towels to wipe off Lake Travis muck with. Maybe some different towels for that? The king-sized bed was super comfy (kid had the queen), but the wall-unit a/c was so loud, we didn't use it at night (it was 73° so that was comfortable temperature anyhow), and the vent for the "lounge" was right over the right side of the bed which emitted a low din, making it sound like a hum of traffic rushing by, which I know couldn't be, so we turned that off too (we don't have a/c in homes in Germany, so maybe Americans don't mind the noise). Wi-fi connection was superb, so I just used my iPad to watch Netflix since the wee one was snoozing in the room that had the t.v.. And we LOVED THE BREAKFAST TACOS and juice and granola bar (which arrived around 8 a.m.)! They kept us full till early afternoon. It was easy to order, but being from abroad we incurred costs sending texts (if it were hooked up to WhatsApp or the like, we could have saved $$ by using the wifi). Very convenient way to order breakfast! We didn't use the common kitchen or make coffee in the room, but I would have had a cup of tea in the room. I guess I could have microwaved the water since there was no e-kettle. Check-in was easy, but coming from abroad we didn't see the email that had arrived a few days before our arrival. But it all worked out very easy.

My family and I absolutely love this place! It's right on Lake Travis, the views are amazing, the rooms are clean and feel just like home! The property is big and has plenty of room for the kids to run around and play safely. We love to spend the day jumping off the dock, canoeing, swimming and barbecuing in the early evening. Their sister property is awesome, we've stayed there and love the pool and backyard!!

Great location, awesome experienced, comfty bed. Just the place to go to get our the city. Really enjoyed my stay and will defiantly be back to spend for and extended stay. The rooms are clean and the tacos are great in the morning. They have a full kitchen so if you go definitely plan on making some food instead of going out .

We were looking for a place to get away for a quiet evening out of the city, and stumbled upon this place. We hit the jackpot. From booking the very reasonably priced room (we stayed in Antigua), to getting there, to the huge luxuriously comfortable bed, to the living room with the big fireplace with the super comfortable futon in the living room that is a very cozy romantic setting to chill with your loved one, to the beautiful walks around there, to the delicious complimentary breakfast tacos cooked for us the next morning, I give our experience 5 huge stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟 We were very satisfied with our stay, and hope to visit again soon! There is a mini fridge and a microwave in your room, and a community, full kitchen, with everything you need in it to cook a meal if you choose to do so, next to the room.

We wanted to get away from it all, get some peace and quiet. The Cove did the job for us. The management made everything easy for my family. Thee dock, the boating and I especially loved the fire pit. We sat out till after midnight.

Incredible place! Very nicely decorated, clean, and great views of the lake. The staff is very helpful, and accommodating. The Cove has a great outdoor area with fireplaces, grills, hammocks, and garden areas.
