Overview

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! No driving down long, dangerous winding roads to get to us!

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 smaller kiddos. Outdoor kitchen by the pool (sink, full fridge, 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. Again, we are not in a cove, so we have plenty of water in front of our house. Our dock sits in 40-50' of water even when lake levels are at their lowest. If you are looking for lake front, this is very important! There is no scaling down rocks or climbing dangerously to the dock. We have a tram that takes you most of the way and then new stairs that lead straight to the bridge of the dock.

Experience the gorgeous sunsets from the pool, decks, dock, 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 $600/night plus tax if applicable

**. Please don't use the 'Book it Now' feature 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' or Chef Eric to cook meals during their stay!

About Summer Bell

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

Why Summer Bell chose Lower Basin Lake Travis

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.

What makes this house unique

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).

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a place that could accommodate 20 of us to celebrate a 50th birthday party. We loved the way this property looked online, and we were blown away in person! From the minute we sent our first inquiry, to the time we checked out, everything was managed well by the property owners. And to say the house was amazing, is an understatement! We spent a LOT of time in the Karaoke / Movie room, and I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. The kitchen was great, the grounds were beautiful...there was something for everyone. Three couples stayed in the guest house, and they loved that area also. The rooms were very comfortable, and we just had a great time. We highly recommend this property.

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5
I held a party for my sister at this home and it was fantastic! I always get nervous when I rent or buy something sight unseen, but this home looks exactly like the pictures they provide on VRBO. The media room with stage, karaoke and instruments was super fun, and the pool area is perfect for large groups(can you say swim up bar!). The owners were very easy to work with and very accommodating. I was expecting it to be in the middle of nowhere, but there was a grocery store and a few restaurants nearby, which helps with large groups. I would highly recommend this property for family gatherings or girls/guy weekend.

BEST HOUSE YOU WILL EVER RENT

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our stay at Summer's house on Lake Travis and we could not have been more impressed with the house and experience of renting from someone like Summer. We had a group of 20 guys and everyone was blown away at hoq nice the house was. Summer was incredibly helpful prior to our arrival helping us plan transportation, activities and even helping us acquire tickets to a Texas football game. Definitely hope to return in the near future!

SPECTACULAR.....ONE OF A KIND!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We were there to celebrate our "50th" wedding anniversary with our kids & grandkids.
There was a total of 11 in all.
Everything was PERFECT from the moment we entered the property. The panoramic view of the lake from the huge living/dining/kitchen area was AMAZING. The BEAUTIFUL infinity pool had a swim-up bar, hot tub & huge covered patio. The outside sound system just added to the enjoyment. The kitchen had more than everything you needed plus several grills outside. The karaoke room with lots of instruments was enjoyed by everyone every night & the secret room was a big hit with our 3 granddaughters. So many neat features thru out. A terrific time was had by our whole family.
The property overall is EXCEPTIONAL & we would highly recommend it to anyone. We would like to thank our hosts Summer & Tony for their added touches that made our "50th" so very special.

Corporate retreat - blown away!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a corporate retreat of around 15. The house was fantastic for this as the team could easily transition from business to fun without much hassle.

The house was clean, had things to do (pool, karaoke, movie room, gym) and is easy access to the lake. Our group chartered a boat the picked us up right at the dock. The view is one of Austin's finest and the property very well kept. The pool even has a swim up bar and plenty of patio seating space around. It definitely created that "wow" momentum for the team and made them feel like VIP's. Cost for the luxury feel was very affordable. There's a huge grill with the house as well.

Summer and Tony were very helpful pre-trip. This was one of the biggest advantages as they provided info for a chef, transportation, and the marina where we rented the boat. Even better, Summer and Tony personally stocked the bar and snacks for us. This meant we could fly in, spend time as a team, and leave, relatively stress free!

The guest house was huge for us as the group was a split of males/females so each could have their own space. We didn't use it, but plenty of parking as well.

If you're using from a corporate perspective, I'd check with Summer and Tony on extra seating and a projector screen. There's a bit of a challenge in getting everyone in one place for any presentations, but with a little creativity, we made it work easily. I should say that the home and amenities far outweighed any inconvenience in getting a meeting space set up.

This house would be ideal for a men's/women's/couples/multi family getaways. I'd only recommend to those who know have to have a good time, but keep things respectful as the home and amenities are all upscale.

All in all, this place far exceeded our expectations and left the group feeling like VIP's and blown away at the view and amenities!

A special thanks to Summer and Tony who made sure our trip was a success. I'd recommend using them as they offer!

Perfect Weekend for 40th

  • 5 of 5
There are so many great things to say about this home, from the view, to the design, to the way it has everything for adults to love all the way down to kids. We had 7 families with kids from 6 year to 3 months. There wasn't a time we felt crowed. We opted for the groceries to be delivered prior to our arrival so we didn't have to leave the entire weekend, which I highly recommend. We have been doing group family trips for 10 years and always stay at different locations. However this is the first time that everyone said they would love to stay here again. For me that shows how great this home is!
