The Palms is waterfront with a cove and dock in the backyard. When Lake Travis is full, the cove is about 30 feet deep. The dock is co-owned with another neighbor, so it is possible to others on the dock.
We allow our guests to tie their boats to the dock during their stay.
It boasts an amazing view of the main basin of Lake Travis!
On the property you will find an oversized hot tub, 3 double chaise lounge chairs, a waterfall feature, an expansive backyard, a tree well with a hammock and swing, a small basketball court, a fire table, and a fire pit. We also have some games to use, like a bocce ball set.
At night, the property is very well lit, making your stay even more magical.
We hope you choose
The Palms to relax and
enjoy time together !

The Palms is located on the main basin of Lake Travis (closest lakefront area to downtown Austin and other activities), just 1 mile down the scenic Comanche Trail drive from The Oasis, The Sunset Capital of Texas!
Children must be 5 years of age or older, and they count as one of the total guests. Guests under 25 years of age must be accompanied by a PARENT. Please let us know if any of this is an issue with your group, and be honest and accurate with the number of guests in your request. Sometimes we can work something out.
Boaters may tie their boats up to the dock in the protected cove with prior approval. Our cove is about 30 feet deep when Lake Travis is full. Mansfield Dam public boat launch is just across the main basin (you can see it from the property) - a 3 mile boat ride. Boats may be rented from nearby marinas. There are also boat rentals that come with captains that will do all the work!
As of April 1, 2023, Lake Travis is very low. We are very fortunate to have a movable dock, so when the water is low, we can move it out, always keeping it in at least 7 feet of water. We have carved a walkable and lighted path to the dock for our guests to make it easier to get there.
The dock may be used for swimming, fishing, and sunbathing. We have bluetooth music and lights on the dock for your enjoyment. We co-own the dock with our neighbors, so it is possible to encounter others on the dock during your stay.
As much as we love bachelor parties, we have chosen not to participate in those activities or other "party" type events at this point in time. We are sticking to do what we do best - peaceful, relaxing luxury vacation rentals. If you have a group that wants to party hard, then we suggest looking elsewhere. We do not accept bachelor parties or all-guy groups. If you fall into that category, here's a fun place to check out - http://www.floathouseaustin.com). If you have a group that wants to have fun, relax, and get away (families, couples, girls weekends), then The Palms is for you!
If you are planning an intimate wedding or event with 14 or fewer total guests onsite, then there will be no additional charge outside of the 2 night minimum rental of the entire property. If you will have 15-30 total guests onsite (22-30 guests for the Full Estate), then we will consider your event for an additional wedding/event fee. This must be pre approved with Rodney and Robin prior to your arrival. We also require a minimum of 3 nights rental for events, since we would block the property for you and be unable to rent to other guests. Please see our Events page for more information.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate weddings or events with more than 30 total guests onsite. We just don't have the parking and facilities for it. For bigger ceremonies and events, consider The Oasis just down the road and have your out of town family and friends stay at The Palms - we promise to take great care of them! Thank you for understanding.
You can reach us through the contact form (PREFERRED). Please do not call for an inquiry, as we do not take initial inquiries by phone - only online inquiries are accepted.
The contact form at the bottom will always receive the fastest response.
