What an awesome time on a houseboat at the beautiful Lake Travis! The house boat was really great, loved the lilypad and having all my friends floating around in this great little cove. John was awesome and communicative with all my questions. He was very great at coordinating times and being flexible with us. Thanks again!
It is in a nice spot, especially in the evening. We had a good time, and I would consider staying overnight next time possibly.
Great comfortable boat. Mr. John was very friendly and nice
It's hard to rate this experience. The actual boat was really beautiful and comfortable, the amenities are nice (bathrooms, lily pads, kayaks and stand up paddleboards), the cove was pretty and peaceful, and John's staff were super helpful. (Be aware, though, this is a quiet spot. If you want the party side of Lake Travis, this one is not for you.) But John called the night before and asked us to cut our time short because he had double-booked the boat. Then he didn't warn us that we'd be hiking off-trail through a dry lake bed, part of which was through chest-high vegetation, to get to the shuttle boat. (Our sandals were not up for the task, and one person's broke on the way back, causing her to cut her foot.) Once we were on the boat, he followed us around with a mop while we were just walking through from one end to another. That part of the vibe was awkward and made us feel unwelcome. He also took photos and videos of our group without asking. We all felt uncomfortable, but he was our host for the day so we didn't want to turn what was supposed to be a chill celebration into some kind of big confrontation. All in all, I am disappointed to say I can't recommend this boat--it's a really cool boat, in a beautiful place, but the other parts of it were a nightmare.
Hi! My name is John an environmentalist who has always wanted to live on a boat. I purchased one and remodeled it to look like an Airstream on water and named her after one of my favorite beaches next to Monte Carlo Monaco in the South of France which has amazing views surrounded by limestone cliffs, just like Lake Travis. I love living on a boat... its great being on the water and immersed in nature maybe a bit adventurous and off the beaten path, but nothing beats the experience and breathtaking views. I love just hanging out watching the ducks and fish jumping early in the mornings, and I know you will too! I aim to provide you with that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself and be inspired by your surroundings.
