The only thing The Island has going for it is the location. The views facing Pace Bend are great and it is the one of the few places to stay in Lago Vista. With the depressingly low lake levels, this is no longer an Island...More

The Island at Lake Travis looks impressive on line. Many of the photos were taken when the lake was about 70' higher. The Island isn't an island anymore - more of a peninsula. The entrance side bridge goes over land not water because the lake...More

Because the condo's or villa are individually owned each rental has its own. Before you book you should be able to see that information, or you can just contact the owner and ask also.

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. Thanks Doug DeVore North Shore Vacation Rentals 512-267-4887
