Spend a Night onboard an Airconditioned 55' Houseboat on Sometimes Islands in Lake Travis

3 bookings

Gorgeous lake views and unique experience for a family vacation, romantic getaway, team building, or a fun trip with friends. The perfect spot to watch shooting stars and spectacular meteor showers at night and wake up to a breathtaking sunrise. Our model has changed and we now provide the houseboat anchored at Sometimes Island. We rent by the hour or overnight please confirm check-in and checkout times before confirming the booking. The houseboat electricity will be powered by an onboard generator and we will shuttle you from the houseboat to a marina pickup location by pontoon boat. If you have your own boat or want to rent one which can be tied off to the houseboat that could be a good option we may have a pontoon boat available please check with us for pricing. The Space Deluxe modern 55-feet-long and 14-feet-wide renovated Airstream houseboat complete with global style interiors. The lower room, main floor, and decks form a total of 1,700 square feet, providing plenty of space. The houseboat is finished with dark hardwood floors and local Austin fossilized limestone countertops and staircase. The walls are made of aluminum and the front, back, and top decks/ porches are carpeted. Locally harvested bamboo and eclectic décor combine Greek, Mediterranean, Moroccan, and Indian influences to create a quiet and refined atmosphere. The property sleeps up to 12 guests and includes bedroom 1 with king bed and a private bathroom with shower, bedroom 2 with 2 double beds, toilet, 2 Kammok camping hammocks each sleeping 1 person and 2 double air mattresses sleeping 4 people, making it possible to spend a night on the rooftop under the stars. Please note that bedroom 2 has a low ceiling, requiring guests to crawl in order to access one of the beds. The Neighborhood Lake Travis offers many nice restaurants with delicious local food. Oasis is a spectacular restaurant on the shore with amazing views and just 13 minutes away from the houseboat. Another popular place is Steiner Ranch Steakhouse. Los Pinos Mexican Restaurant is just 36 minutes away. The lake is a reservoir on the Colorado River in central Texas in the United States. Getting Around Our location is at Sometimes Island in the main basin of Lake Travis between Mansfield Dam and the Oasis restaurant. Sometimes Island is actually a peninsula created by a string of islets which appears and disappears as lake levels increase and decrease, hence its name as its sometimes there and sometimes is not. An amazing location with breathtaking views of Lake Travis, Mansfield Dam and the most spectacular sunsets. Everyone has heard of the breathtaking sunsets from the Oasis, but the sunsets from Sometimes Island are even more beautiful. Interaction with Guests Your host will meet you upon check-in and check-out and will be available by phone 24/7. House Rules We have 2 kayaks. Any parties, events, or additional guests (other than guests who have paid to stay on the property) must be authorized by the property owner. Please note that an additional charge of around 60 dollars per day per person is applicable for every additional guest after 2 guests.

I am excited to be a part of the GetMyBoat movement in making boats more accessible and affordable to others. I hope to get out on the water more and help boating grow.
