Lower Basin Lake Travis House Rental Photos and Description

9 bdrms total (6 bdrm, 3.5 bath Main House + 3 bdrm 3.5 bath Guest House)

Location, Location, LOCATION!!!

We are in beautiful Austin Texas and THE closest you can get to downtown Austin on Lake Travis (20 minutes) We are 28 miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport.. (see map) and 30 miles from Circuit of the Americas (Formula One-F1). We are near everything you need (grocery, shopping, restaurants, entertainment). Lake Travis is 65 miles long and encompasses many outlining areas of Austin. We are close to everything!

This luxury Lake Travis waterfront estate sits 80 feet above the lake (elevator/tram to the water) creating breathtaking views from every room. Resort style negative edge pool with swim-up bar, swim lane and 'beach area' for lounge chairs and smaller kiddos. Outdoor kitchen by the pool (sink, full fridge, warming drawer, BBQ grill) as well as a pool bathroom with air conditioned changing room.

Large covered deck with fireplace overlooking the pool and lake and a sun deck above. Property is completely 'walled' with security gate at entrance. 2+ acres with plenty of parking. Walk through the doors and down the hall to a 180 degree lake view that will take your breath away! This estate sits on the south shore of the main basin with NO low water issues! (the lake is still 80-100' deep in front of the home.

We have a boat dock that you can tie jet-ski's or a boat up to.

Experience the gorgeous sunsets from the pool, decks, or house without the sun glaring directly towards you (home faces N/S).

There's a movie theater that seats 8-10 with recliners (also with floor space and bean bags). A large 120' screen with surround sound, the screen retracts to reveal a karaoke/performance stage complete with drum set, amps and mics!

Free Wi-Fi throughout the home as well as by the pool. Cable TV to watch your favorite game or movie on the big screen.

This estate is excellent for entertaining and has plenty of indoor/outdoor space for guests (and parking).

The main house has 6 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and is 5100 sq. ft. and the guesthouse has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths (each room in GH has an en suite bath) and is 1,727 sq. ft. They can be rented together or separately.

**Quoted prices on this site are for main home only, guest house adds $500/night plus tax if applicable)**. Please don't use the 'Book it Now' if you have more than 12 people and need the guest house too, as the rates are different.

We only rent to one group at a time, so you will have privacy during your stay.

Main level:

Master bedroom: Lovely lake view from the king-sized bed, walk-in closet, his and her toilets, dual shower heads, huge bubble tub with fire place, hand-painted mural and speakers for that romantic bubble bath

There's a TV room next to the master with another 'secret' bedroom upstairs that is accessed from the TV room (has two queen beds and one twin).

Downstairs:

There are 4 bedrooms. Three rooms have queen beds and the other has 2 twin beds (all but one bedroom have views of the lake).

Guesthouse: (faces the main house, about 75 feet away)

It has 2 queen beds and 1 king, plus each has their own private bath (and a half bath off the living room)

This home was featured on MTV Teen Cribs in 2009....that was fun! (Google MTV Teen Cribs episode 15)

We are here to accommodate you (we live 10 min away) and offer concierge-like service to our guests! If you need something...just ask!

GuestS love hiring Chef ' BeMa Rose' to cook meals during their stay!

This is our custom dream home that we designed and (re)built paying attention to every detail. We love to entertain and have friends and family over, so we designed it with that in mind. You'll leave here noticing every detail that we have put into our home. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we have!

Summer Bell purchased this house in 2004

We have lived in Austin since 1999. We built this custom home as our dream home in 2005. Tony is a Mechanical Engineer turned home designer/builder and I am the Property Manager, co-owner of Villa De Suenos as well as the Co-Director/Founder of a private STEM school in Austin. I am also a full-time mom to our 8 year old daughter. Tony and I personally manage all aspects of our property and rental.

It's the best location in Austin! And Austin is the best city in Texas! You have all the conveniences of Austin and it's THE closest to downtown that you can get on Lake Travis. We love this part of Austin because it has so much to offer and we love the hills and views. We have horses 2 miniatures, 1 pony and 2 full-size as well as laying hens for 'farm fresh' eggs. We enjoy boating on lake travis (wakeboarding, tubing and wake-surfing).

BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
Summer and Tony - just wanted to let you know how wonderful our vacation at your home was. Our group included 16 people, from age 9 months to 77 years. We rented both the main house and the guest house and were perfectly comfortable wherever we were. We celebrated a couple of birthdays and hosted a couples baby shower while we were there. Every single person who came through your beautiful front gate commented that your property is one of the most beautiful places they have ever seen. We felt like we were in a tropical paradise but with the most modern amenities available. You provided everything we could have possibly wanted or needed and were so responsive to any questions/concerns we had. Other than grocery shopping, we never left the property, which speaks volumes about how comfortable we were. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub every day and your recommendations for jet ski rentals delivered to your dock made for one of the highlights of our trip. We have recommended your property to various people already and will continue to do so every time we get the chance. We hope to be able to come back soon and want to thank you again for providing an amazing venue for our family vacation!

FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We have rented houses for an annual family reunion for 35 years, and this one was one of the best. We are a 4 generation family, and there was something for everyone. The patriarch had his own bedroom/bathroom in the guest house where he could get away to take a nap if he wanted. The youngest set loved the secret room, the play house, feeding the horses, and of course, the pool. Those of us in the "middle" enjoyed the hot tub and the media room (Go Spurs!) - discovering karaoke talent we didn't know we had! The owners were the most caring and responsive owners we have ever dealt with - they were available to give advice and solve problems at all times of the day and night. It was important to Summer and Tony that we had a great time, and they did everything they could to make it happen. We hope to be back next year!

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home with lake access, pool, and even an entertainment room (karaoke and theater great for kids, teenagers, and a girls getaway weekend)! We had plently to do the whole weekend, and really enjoyed our stay. The property owners were very accomodating and helped carrying coolers, etc. down to the lake for us to enjoy a day on a rented boat, as well!

AMAZING HOUSE, AMAZING FACILITIES, INCREDIBLE OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
My company rented Summer & Tony's house for a week during SXSW. Of all the times I have been to SXSW, this was the best. The accommodations were fantastic and Summer & Tony were the best hosts I've ever encountered. Anytime we needed anything, they were responsive and fast. I would rent from these folks again in heartbeat!

The property itself is beautiful. It's situated on a gorgeous piece of land that includes horse stables. You can even feed the horses every day if you like. The view over Lake Travis is amazing and was one of the key ingredients to the success of our company's powwow here. All beds were comfy, the kitchen was great for multiple dinners, and all the fun amenities (pool, karaoke room, gym, etc) made the trip exceptional. The drive into downtown was not bad either: 40mins on a bad day.

I'd highly recommend this property to anyone seeking a great, large accommodation in Austin. The price was awesome for what we got, and I can't recommend Summer & Tony for their hospitality more. Thank you for a great time!

AMAZING WEEKEND AT THIS HOUSE!!!

  • 5 of 5
We did a girls weekend at this house in January for 20 girls and it was amazing! We had plenty on room for all 20 to sleep comfortably! The karaoke room was by far the most memorable of our trip! Everyone had a ball!!!!! I highly recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a getaway on the lake. The views are breathtaking and it is not too far away from the city! Summer and Tony Bell were so easy to work with... We will definitely be back!

THIS HOUSE HAS IT ALL AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
This year I decided to rent a house on the lake to ring in the new year and this house had everything i was looking for. The house is even more impressive in person than it is in the photographs. The attention to detail and the unique murals and furniture (along with the amazing view) really helped set a perfect back drop to a perfect New Year's Eve. We had 15 guests and everyone was comfortable and happy. The theater was amazing and provided hours of entertainment. New Years Day proved warm enough to use the pool and jacuzzi and it was impossible not to enjoy given the view. The homeowners were really great to work with. They met me at the house and took an hour to show me around the impressive grounds and showed me how everything in the house worked (it wasn't that complicated). They were "on call" the whole time we were in the house and if i needed something or had a question, I just sent a text and they took care of it. I will definitely rent this house again!
