This is a family operation. We are always available by phone: Ron Jones, Owner and Host, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)rbara Jones, Co-Host, (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). We live in Leander, and can be on site within an hour, if needed. We started Lake Travis Family Vacation Home rental in July 2015.
Kim Jones, our daughter in law, created the original Airbnb account and was our property manager from June of 2015 until March of 2017. Then, she decided to leave us for the opportunity to Co-Host for other property owners.
That made it necessary for us to create a new Airbnb account. None of the reviews from guests who had enjoyed our property could be transferred to our new account.
To remedy this situation, we put the guest reviews into the following box, titled "Other things to note". From this, you can see that from July, 2015 to April, 2017 we have attained Super Host status with 5 star reviews (except one 4 star).
Reviews from our recent guests:
04/2017 Sathya R. "exactly as described but better. thanks very much. our families had a memorable time."
04/2017 Gerald K. "It was very scenic with its view of the lake and lots of deer walking through the neighborhood. We weren't able to use the amenities (pool, beach, etc) as most were closed due to a storm which hit shortly before our stay. Even without them, we had a great time! I'd definitely return to stay there! We really enjoyed staying at your home!"
03/2017 Patrice B. "The view is beautiful, the beds are comfy, the place is clean, and the kitchen has spices and cooking essentials like oils and spices. We loved the view, beds, and the stocked kitchen."
03/2017 Diedre K. "This house is absolutely beautiful and perfect for large groups. The pictures are true to life, so what you see is what you'll get. The host is very considerate of her guests by providing a detailed resource and house manual. Our group spent a lot of time in the kitchen, patio, and main living area. So we loved the fact that the kitchen was well stocked ---from the spices in the pantry down to the cookware. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay." Diedre continued, "The house was beautiful, neighbors were friendly, and the neighborhood was very peaceful. We would definitely recommend this property to everyone, and our group really enjoyed our stay."
03/2017 Trang P. "The house is super clean and the view is so beautiful... the house has everything that you need from spices to shampoo. We had a great time in there. The kids love it. Definitely coming back in the future if we have a chance.

02/2017 Ryan M. "Great communicator and was very helpful during the check-in process. Her house is perfect for a lake trip and has great views of Lake Travis! All of the bedrooms are well appointed and the extra "apartment" downstairs was perfect for the little ones. Great spot!"

10/2016 Cynthoa C. "I am in a Birthday Club We r 9 women and we go on a girls getaway every year. Jones lake view house was perfect for us. Beautiful view, large balcony with a breathtaking view. The house accommodating, perfect in size. Sleeps 12 with an attached room that has a mini kitchen bathroom and air hockey. We have been to a few other homes in the past but this is the best house so far. We r thing about going back with family and our next year girls get away. This trip was excellent. Highly recommended."
10/2016 Jonny L. "A great place for groups to leave town and hangout by the lake for a few days. Thanks for everything!"
10/2016 Jessika V. "My family had an amazing time at the lake house. The drive out to the home was pretty scary (if you have a weak stomach for windy roads like I do) but when we arrived, the home was worth it! The view when you walk into the property is AWESOME! It was breathtaking and waking up to the view was amazing. I was also welcomed with a thank you note and basket of treats (an extra one in the kid's studio), which I thought was very sweet of our hosts. The house looked just as elegant as it did in the pictures and provided plenty of room for a group of 14. It did surprise me a bit that the homes in the community are so close together, and that the backyard space was pretty small, but honestly I never heard much of any noise during our stay and there was plenty of room for us to roast marshmallows and smores during the night. What I really loved about the home was the deer! The host tells you to watch out for deer as you are driving into Lago Vista, but I was thinking very few deer— not groups of 10 walking in your front lawn throughout the day! My nephews loved it! Overall, our experience was excellent and my family is already looking forward to staying here again!" Jessika went on to say, "The view! How clean every single room was when we arrived. The linens and finishings in the room provided a luxurious feel. Loved the huge table in the dining area. I can think of nothing more you can improve on. Thank you for the wonderful experience!"
09/2016 Laura G. Kim was extremely helpful in providing all the information for check-in procedures and where everything could be found!... The house was even better than the pictures, we had such a great time! Laura continued, "extremely comfortable- we didn't want to leave!"
08/2016 Kim S. "Absolutely loved this lake house! Such a beautiful home with the most amazing hosts. They were so easy to communicate with throughout the whole process and the weekend was such a blast because of them. I would HIGHLY recommend this home to others who are visiting."
08/2016 Hannah T. "The house and property was even more beautiful than the pictures. The owner was so helpful and available to answer our questions while we were there. The entire group had a blast! Just a wonderful experience overall."
08/2016 Tim E. "We just finished a week stay at the house and really enjoyed ourselves here. The house was neat and clean... The view of the lake is as shown in the photos. We ended up with only 6 adults and 2 kids in the house but there was plenty of room for more (e.g. 6 more adults). It's in a nice friendly little neighborhood with access to all the neighborhood amenities such as the parks, pool, and marina. We would take our kids for walks in the morning and felt like we were part of the community with everyone waving at us. We were surprised at all the deer running around the area - we thought it was neat to see and you could get so close to them! For the golfers, the nearby 9-hole course is not difficult but still fun. The house provided all the linens and towels, and also came with some toiletries, paper towels, and other "necessities" that made packing a bit easier. There were also towels and floats and such for use in the pool/lake. It was a really hot week, so when we were at the house (and not out doing things) we were inside most of the time, but the deck on the backside offers great views of the lake. We could also pick the house out from the lake when we were on our boat (kinda neat for photographs). We didn't have much interaction with the hosts during our stay, but prior to the trip, all emails/questions were answered quickly. For Lake Travis locations, this is a really great spot. The house itself was nice, good location, liked how the toiletries/linens/towels/condiments, etc were provided, plenty of room. The neighborhood was great along with access to the amenities. We really enjoyed staying here."
08/2016 Haleigh S. "Kim was in touch regularly up to the date of our stay and throughout our trip, and made it easy for us to contact her with questions. She and her family did an amazing job, and the house was perfect. We were greeted by a snack basket and personal note and the house had a great variety of amenities already in place, in both kitchen and baths, including a well stocked kitchen and nice spice selection for those who cook. They let us know that they were having problems with the grill before we arrived, and then they made a special trip to bring a brand new grill to the house right after we arrived so that we didn't have to change our dinner plans. The view from the deck was gorgeous, especially early in the morning, and the house was beautifully cleaned and cared for. Beds were comfortable and linens were luxurious. The master suite in particular is amazingly Nice. We would definitely come back to this house, no question! Haleigh continued, "We had an amazing time. Thank you for having us!"
07/2016 Lynn V. "We felt very welcome, the home is comfortable and very nice. The view of the lake from the deck is breathtaking! The owners are gracious hosts and were very accommodating. I highly recommend their lake house for families with or without children. We had a wonderful time!"
