The Island on Lake Travis
Reviewed 18 April 2014

If I could give them a 0 I would. This condo is in HORRIBLE conditions!!!! It's old, out-dated, disgusting, and just plain out TRASH!!!! They should be embarrassed to rent this condo out to anyone. The furniture is old, the ceiling is disgusting, they have a shelf as a table with linens on it, the restroom curtains are yellow and HORRID! There was what looked like a car window cleaner sponge left inside the bathtub! *vomit* the closet doors have been removed and replaced with curtains???? seriously??? The amount of things that are wrong with this place are infinite... There's not enough space on this page to write down all the bad thins wrong with this condo! What a shame that you take money from people and precious time from their vacation by renting this piece of crap out! Wow... That's alla I can say. Don't ever stay in this condo room 3105! Horrible horrible horrible!!!! You're better off sleeping on the benches by the lake!

Beautiful place. It's not an island any more but still has a lake view and easy access. The amenities are great. We rented a condo directly from the owner, it had 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom with easy access to one of 3 pools. Beautiful landscape. The sunset is priceless.

My family stayed at The Island on Lake Travis and had a great time. It is somewhat isolated but close enough to town and other places where you do not have to drive a long distance. The grounds were well kept and the condo was very clean and somewhat up to date. (the beds in unit 1214 were showing there wear). Parking was under the condos and we felt very safe. The only thing is that the island is no longer an island at this time because the lake is down 50-60 ft. The pool areas were well kept and not very crowded. We would recommend this place for a family stay on Lake Travis.

We visited the island for a weekend getaway and had a blast. Being out in the Texas Hill Country was nice and the drive out was very scenic. I will have to admit the resort is little out of the way and the grocery store is about 10 minutes both ways but this was what we were looking for, a quiet out of the way place. We went through Island Rentals and they had pictures of all the condos they rent on their website. Once we got everything loaded into the condo, which was very nice, we walked around the grounds and got the lay of the land. The grounds were very nice and the pools were nicely landscaped. There was a wedding group at the pool but found them to be fun.
We later went to the restaurant which had a limited menu but the burgers were good. We stayed around and partied with the people from the wedding party. We got up the next day sat on our deck and watched the boats go by for a while and then went over to the Flat Creek Winery which is about 15 minutes away and had the best meal ever. The vineyard is a beautiful and a great place to relax. We looked into renting the ATV’s or wave runners but decided to hang by the pool and have a few more drinks. In the evening someone recommended Perrain’s in Jonestown (I believe that was the name of the town) and it had some of the best Cajun food I have had in a long time….again about a 15 minute drive. We ended the evening at the bar on the Island for a drink and listened to a great band.
I have to say it was a great time and my wife and I love to get out of the city and enjoy some downtime. The people at Island Rentals were very helpful and we will be back.

The magic is gone all that is left is an island that has seen its better days long ago in Largo Vista. This confused retirement home does not know what it wants to be. But it will never be a resort. AT first glance the place looks like the Driscoe on Lake Travis but as you enter the structure it seems like closed a down motel 6. The swimming pools were small and uninviting. The rooms had porthole style window in the court yard that allowed anyone that walked by to invade your privacy. The so called restaurant seemed like Luby's cafeteria: The lakes is a retirement community posed high on the cliffs of what used to be Lake Travis which will never be a constant level lake. It is canyon front property there are no amazing view of the lake.It is ISOLATED and EXPENSIVE and ABANDONED. It is a creepy place.

Room Tip: Stay Away: This is your warning.
