Why Jeff Voorhis chose Volente
There is no other property like this on Lake Travis. The Castle is built out of recycled materials from UT Austin, Mueller Airport, Southwest Airlines. We have a private deep-water cove and a large area with a Firepit, outdoor toys (Cornhole, Bocce Balls, Horseshoes, etc.).
What makes this Castle unique
Considered one of the most beautiful view of the Texas Hill Country Sunsets. Quiet location with personal cove and dock. Picturesque view of Lake Travis from the Living Area, Masterbed rooms in the house, and Gallery Open Room. Sit on the first or second balconies sipping coffee in the quiet morning overlooking a quiet, calm lake. Relaxing to start the day.

Bachelor Party Getaway
This is an awesome place to bring a large group of people, whether it be for a family vacation or a party setting. Our group used this house for a bachelor weekend, and it was perfect! From the moment we checked in until the time we left our experience was a great one. No one can ever get bored at this house as there is tons to do! From the roof top, where you can see all parts of the lake and play corn hole, to the private cove where you can swim, float and even rent boats; like I said, this place has it all. Besides the house itself, there is another area about 50 yards down from the house that has a fire pit, grill and more views of the lake. Whether you are using this house for a family vacation or a "party," this house will host you and your group. Lastly, Jeff and his wife are super helpful to whatever you should need for your stay. For example, right after we checked in we wanted to watch some playoff baseball, but the t.v. had no sound and the color was off. We called Jeff and within seconds he was over fixing the problem. You can not go wrong in renting this house for whatever occasion you may have. I hope to be back to this house in the future!
Perfect location on Lake Travis for large groups.
Great property! Right on the water with dock access for a boat. Awesome views! The rooftop made for a perfect late night hangout. We booked for a 25 year high school reunion of close friends and this place exceeded expectations. Our hosts, Jeff and Laura, were very welcoming and accommodating. Thank you for having us at the castle!
Thank you for the feedback. Great bunch of guys! You are welcome to come stay with us anytime.
Fun Entertaining Home with an Amazing View
We had 4 couples and dogs for a weekend get away. It suited our needs with a big kitchen to prep our meals and eat at the bar. Several porches with plenty of seating to enjoy the view. As other people have said it is a pretty precarious steep walk to the dock but once you are there it was quite fun. Some of the toys are a bit worn but still fun. We enjoyed the fire pit on the landing but unfortunately there was not a mandatory pick up after your pet enforced. To get there you had to walk down a path and an open area where there were landmines everywhere. Walking at night did not make it easy to avoid them. We went Ziplining just up the road so that added to our trip! If anyone is scared of spiders like a few of our guests be alert out on the decks at night because there are many! It was a very fun weekend had by all!!!
I would like to go back!
I booked this castle for my bachelor party and got more than I had expected! It had beautiful views of the lake. Any dishes or utensils we needed for cooking and preparing meals was supplied. We had planned to go to another spot in Austin for one of the days there, but decided to stay at the castle since we already had so many different activities available to us! We even rented the pontoon boat that is available for a reasonable fee. Jeff and Laura were very accommodating and willing to answer any questions at any time. It was a great experience and I do plan to go back in the future!
First Class Group of professional men. Landon you are welcome back anytime
A wonderful place for families and friends!
My friends and I flew in from across the country to spend the weekend at Lake Travis and we had the best time at Jeff's AirBnB!
The location is unparalleled with an amazing view of the lake. The amenities were fantastic. We had special access to our very own dock.
Anything we could have needed (and also forgot to pack) was available to us. Jeff is super hospitable. He gave a very in depth tour and answered all of our questions with enthusiasm and understanding. He also offered his assistance to us day or night if we needed.
The place itself was spacious and had so many quirks that we were entertained just staying at the house. We could not have asked for a better experience!
Great group of professional men. Always welcome back.
Great vacation place
The house is big, two story, two large decks overlooking the lake, plus one on the roof. Lots of things to do. Our family had a wonderful time and would rent this house again.
Great people...full of adventures
