Great place to getaway. It is very peaceful and lots of deer on the property. The condo we stayed in was #3211 and is called Texas On The Lake. It had all of the amenities and nicely decorated. It was very cozy. It had a great very as well. The outdoor hot tub was relaxing. We definitely will be back...

15 or 20 years ago, this resort would have been pretty good, I bet. While there were serious problems, the property is dated and showing signs of wear and tear. Far too many deer roam the island, too. I wouldn't return.

My wife and I came here and rented from Obi on AirBnB. - We have to say that we absolutely LOVED the stay. The location was perfect for a couple and the condo was great for all of the amenities offered. The pool areas are nice and the grilling area was great too. Oddly enough, there are a good amount...

We stayed at The Island on Lake Travis and found it to be beautiful for a venue for this small family gathering of about 50. We were arriving with little time to find our bearings so were glad the event was in this complex. We were just one floor up from the event. We found our room on Airbnb. See...

Booked here through VRBO. It was a good stay overall. Even in the winter, there were beautiful sunsets from the balcony. Would make another trip back in the spring or summer with warmer weather. The only downfall was the price. With it being a slower time of year, I would have liked the rates to be a little lower.

The Island is in serious need of a property manager. The place looks amazing as you drive up but once you are inside the gates you can tell this is more of an older living community rather than a resort. I saw at least 4 cats in the parking garage which explains the urine odor throughout the main level and...

While the view of the lake was terrific, this unit was rather dirty. This is a most beautiful of locations with assigned parking and a good restaurant on the grounds. This unit was close to the stairs and elevator with a private balcony and view of the lake and one of the pools. The bed was nice and comfortable and...

We stayed in Unit 3105 and found it was nice, the view was awesome. It's a private home - and done very well. There is a nice indoor pool and 2 outdoor pools. Lago Vista is a nice little Texas town in the Hill Country. Next time we visit Lago Vista, we'll stay here. We had a great, relaxing time.

This is a nice facility for boaters. All the condo amenities plus covered boat slips while you are there. Our 3 bedroom had a huge porch and balcony, perfect for the sunsets, very comfortable and well equipped. Two outdoor pools, never crowded and one indoors at the spa (very nice, with sauna and gym) should have spent more time there....

Dear Bathie2014

My name is Doug and I am the owner of North Shore Vacation Rentals. First because I did not see a unit number I was not sure if you rented through us or through a individual owner. But ether way you had made some great points and had some good questions. First you are correct...the lake is down over 50ft depend if you are talking normal level or full. If you rented from us I am not sure why my staff did not tell you that there are no boat ramps but limited places where you can launch your boat from a beach area, or check our website. Yes it does look weird that we could have so many slips and a treacherous way to get to these slips. The Condo owners association made a decision based on the home owners who keep their boats in the slips to build the long steps to get to their boats on the front of the island. Some use it some do not. Yes we rent the slips for 50.00 so if you find a place to put your boat into the lake it is a little easier to get to your boat rather then pulling in in and out of the less than favorable launches. Now for all the empty slips, the three boat houses with slips in the front part of the island are the ones we rent. The ones in the back part in the cove have not been commissioned by the COA so are unusable at this time even though you see some boats in them. As far as the pool being closed do to shocking I totally agree with you and they are normally done during the week...I am not sure why this happened. There was some repairs made on the south pool around the time you were there and after they resurfaced the bottom they had to shock the water. I believe that the north pool should have been opened and the indoor pool.

Again I am very sorry for your inconvenience with your boat. If you did get your boat in I hope you were lucky enough to find the great beach that has appeared with the low lake levels. It is across from Lakeway near Point Venture. The sand is soft like on the Caribbean and in the summer you would think you were in Port A with out all the salt and seaweed....and critters.

I hope this helps you under stand and hope you did enjoy yourself.
