Lower Basin Lake Travis Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Full Bedrooms And 5 Full Baths. Two Rooms Are Convertible To Extra Bedrooms

Please do 4 things before you send an inquiry:

1) Checkout the Amenities section to see all the items this house has to offer.

2) Checkout a slide show of the house in a link found at the bottom of the Amenities section. It will show you in pictures what I'm about to describe below.

3) Checkout my rates: click on the Availability tab found above the house picture. I have higher rates during peak season, holidays & Special Events (Like F-1 & SXSW).

4) Read the detailed Property Description found below as it goes into specifics about what this house has to offer.

BTW, my European friends call this place a Villa because of all the amenities it contains. So do yourself a favor and please visit the Amenities section: NOTE, at the bottom of the section there is a link that contains 85 additional pictures of the home.

The bedroom setup is as follows: Two bedrooms with king beds. One bedroom with a queen. One bedroom with bunk bed: the bottom bunk is a full bed and the top bunk is a twin.

Two other rooms have the following: a queen pull out sofa in the Media Room and the other room has a love seat with a pull out twin. So, it can be a 6 bedroom house if you need it to be.

All the beds in the house are IntelliBED's (gel beds) and are very comfortable. I have IntelliBED toppers for my pull out beds as well.

A wonderful pool area that includes an oversize spa, plenty of patio area, and a large cabana (with a bathroom and shower.) The cabana has an outside Pantel TV along with a sound system. It comes with a small refrigerator which I use to store beer and soft drinks. There are outdoor speakers that surround the pool area for playing music.

The pool and cabana overlook the orchard comprising of citrus, apple, pear, peach, apricot, and plum trees. I have a continuos, year-round garden. I use BioGreen organic fertilizer on all of my plants, garden vegetables and fruit trees. I even use it on my yard.

I have 4 TV's. 3 in the house (with a dedicated Media Room) and one outside in the Cabana, There are speakers throughout the house. Only the bedrooms (except the Master) don't have speakers or TV's. I have three cable boxes that serve the TV's, along with 2 Media servers with a Vidabox movie server containing over 300 titles plus access to Netflix. No problem if someone wants to watch a TV show or game and someone else a movie. You have four options.

The kitchen is fully stocked with every appliance and tool imaginable. It has a wonderful setup with a large island, gas range and two ovens. There is a wet bar that surrounds the kitchen area with barstools so guests can sit and chat with the chef.

The house has a water softener with two Reverse Osmosis taps to use as drinking water.

Two indoor dining areas and a cozy, shaded outdoor dining area overlooking the orchard. A game room with an antique card table and a TV. A jacuzzi bathtub in the downstairs master bedroom.

There is a day bed down in the orchard that can be used as an extra place to sleep, if you don't mind sleeping under the stars.

I grew up in Midland, Tx. Graduated from U.T. Austin and have lived in Austin ever since graduation.

Kevin Stanford purchased this villa in 2006

Because I love Austin and especially the Lake Travis area. It's a beautiful place to live.

The views of Lake Travis and the Hill country are spectacular; especially at sunset. In the Spring fog will roll through the canyons, which is a pretty sight as well. It burns off as soon as the sun hits it.

This house was designed for entertaining. It has so many amenities. I have spent years entertaining my friends and family members. I tell them that their kids and their pets are always welcome.

EXCELLENT HOUSE A GIRLS WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I rented this house for her bachelorette party with 14 girls and had an incredible time! This house is absolutely amazing and has so much to offer we feel like we didn't even need to leave the property. We made good use of the spa and pool and beautiful patio despite the weather, which has amazing views! There is so much room to sit under a covered area next to an outdoor fireplace. The inside of the house gets better-there are speakers every where, a dj booth upstairs, and tons of rooms. Everyone was able to sleep comfortably and I don't mean on the floor with pillows and blankets-there was room for everyone to sleep in a bed. The owner was extremely helpful in showing us all of the amenities and made sure we felt comfortable operating the remotes and lights. He was even available by phone in case we had any questions and wanted us to have an amazing and fun time! This house is definitely built for that and I would recommend this place to anyone with any size of group-whether its a weekend for friends or family, I guarantee it will not disappoint!

PERFECT HOUSE FOR A WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Although I’m from Austin, I needed a house big enough for my sister’s bachelorette party for 15 girls! This house was perfect for the weekend! It had enough beds and bathrooms for all of us plus huge common areas like the living room and kitchen for us all to hangout in. That’s just the inside! We spent most of our time outside in the hot tub and pool. There were also comfortable chairs to all sit in by the pool and an amazing cabana with couches and a TV. We felt like we were on a tropical island! The house has so many extras including outside speakers, dj booth inside, game room, media room and much more! The owner was very accommodating and gave us a tour before so we would know how to use everything. The pictures really say it all and we were very happy with our stay here. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a getaway and I hope to stay here again one day!

BEAUTIFUL AREA, AMAZING HOME, EXCELLENT OWNER!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had the privilege to stay in this home over Thanksgiving. My job moved me from Boston to south Texas a few years ago, so my wife and I came up with the idea of meeting my family in Austin for the holiday. This vacation ended up being one of the best ever. The home is absolutely stunning with gorgeous views overlooking the hills of Travis County and Lake Travis. Drinking wine outside on the patio and walking through the many citrus fruit trees while watching the sunset was one of the many highlights of our stay. And you could not ask to deal with a better owner! We truly felt like we were treated as family when we stayed here. We cannot wait to go back! I strongly recommend a trip to this beautiful property!
