    Great property

    The property is a huge playground for both young and old. The owner was very tentative of our request. Would definitely rent agin.

    We had a fantastic experience! David was very available and communicative with regard to our stay!

    The property was awesome with so many available activities and amenities on-site! The home was spacious. I would definitely recommend staying here for a large group looking for on-site entertainment!

    Private Summer Camp - Sandy

    Camp Sandy is as advertised. Although it is a private residence, it was like being at our own private summer camp. It has so much to offer and do, it was hard to do everything and we didn't even need to leave the property, except for groceries. I can see the only issue could be with seniors or anyone who has difficulty climbing the hill or stairs back up to the property. With that being said, this is a property we plan on returning to. If I could give it 10 stars, I would.

    Understated Online

    This place is absolutely wonderful! I could not believe how beautiful this place was. Truthfully the photos online did not do it justice. For large groups this place is ideal. There is a kitchen on the main floor, the lower floor and beside the lake. So much seating, tons of things to do - NO ONE WAS WVER BORED or complaining. If you’re going to be in the Austin area, we definitely recommend this place. It’s conveniently located, private and has tons of space. What made it the best pick ever is David, the property owner. This man keeps you in the loop, is kind, courteous and relatable. So you feel welcomed and free to enjoy the property - not on eggshells.

    Fabulous vacation

    Our stay at Camp Sandy was wonderful. If you were bored, it was your own fault, as there was so much to do. David, the owner, was great to deal with and promptly resolved any concerns we had. Looking forward to staying there again.

    Camp Sandy was AMAZING!!!

    We can't say enough good things about our stay at Camp Sandy! Our group had a wonderful time, the property was even more beautiful in person than in pictures. David was so easy to work with and graciously accommodated our large group. We would book this property again in a heartbeat!

    Great Outdoor Activities

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Camp Sandy over New Year's with 19 people! The outdoor area was absolutely incredible. We grilled lunch outside every day that weather allowed and even used the pizza oven from Italy in the outdoor kitchen. We used kayaks, fished, played sand volleyball, got in the hot tub, and the kids enjoyed the seesaw and playhouse. The teenagers loved the gameroom too. There were more than enough beds and towels and the kitchen was well appointed. The host was very gracious and even stocked the house with chocolate, coffee, and toiletries! There are 3 refrigerators inside and one in the outdoor kitchen, and we used all of them. The only thing that could be updated would be the mattresses, and 2 of the adult couples had to share a bathroom. Overall wonderful trip!

    26th Annual Girlfriend Weekend

    What a fabulous place to spend with friends or family! It ranked as high as some of our previous favorites! So much to do and I think we managed to do most of the activities swimming, shuffleboard, sling shot, ping pong, corn hole, paddle boards, volleyball, kayak and fire pit at the end of our awesome days! Loved the lodge area by the lake to catch up with all the gals. Not one complaint with the property from 14 women! In fact, owner went above and beyond when we had a mishap with delivery. He was absolutely the best we have ever experienced!!
