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)**.

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 main house, about 25 steps 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!

Guest 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).

Amazing house, amazing facilities, incredible owners

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!

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!

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!

Family reunion

My husband and I have stayed at a number of VRBO properties over the years - including one in Charleston with one roll of toilet paper per bathroom (and no hangers in the closets) to another one in the Northeast we not so kindly referred to as 'the hovel.' Summer and Tony's house was absolutely the best! We have a large family (I am the oldest of 8) with everyone married and most having children. We were in Austin for a nephew's wedding. While not everyone stayed at the house, just about everyone dropped by at one time or another. It is a beautiful house, well stocked with everything one would need (towels, kitchen utensils, spices, toilet paper!). The family spent many hours enjoying the swimming pool, the hot tub and the gorgeous view of the lake. We had several sessions in the media room with the karaoke (we realized that none of us have good singing voices!) and watched football on the big screen tv. There was something to enjoy for everyone of all ages - from my 85 year old mother down to the teenagers and twenty-somethings. For example, my 17 year old niece fed the horses, my 13 year old nephew and brother-in-law swam across the lake from the dock, my brother made egg sandwiches for everyone for breakfast, the nieces and nephews stayed up into the wee hours in the hot tub, my sister and her husband took a long walk through the beautiful area, etc. Summer and Tony were exceptionally helpful with advice (where to eat, where to get food, etc.). And if any problems came up (we were inept in terms of using some of the television equipment), they were readily available to help us. Mary and Tom
