About Pam Bernhardt

I am a real estate agent in Austin, TX and have been with Keller Williams for over 25 years. I have lived in Austin for ten years with my husband and have grown children here that I adore. They enjoy coming to the lake as we built this home to enable us to entertain all of them when their schedule permits. We love to travel and do so quite frequently so we offer our home to a select few when we are away.

The lake is my retreat from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world. Totally relaxing with all of the things that make Lake Austin the best place on earth. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Pam Bernhardt purchased this house in 2016

Why Pam Bernhardt chose Austin

There is not a comparable property on Lake Austin for rent. It is truly one of a kind in a very special location. Located in the best school district in Austin close to St. Stephens private school. We want tenants that will treat our home just as we do so we are very picky with our tenants. Sorry for any inquisitions but we take great pride in our home and want to make sure that you will too.

What makes this house unique

The most incredible part of staying at Waterstone is being able to experience Lake Austin in a residential setting like a local. This is the most amazing street with incredible people. You will never forget your stay and will come back over and over again.

Amazing Lake Front Luxury!

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate to have taken some great family vacations in the past but this one tops the list. There was 14 of us, 3 generations ages 15 - 77. Even with the 14 of us there was enough space for everyone to spread out. The house is absolutely beautiful and brand new. Everything is perfect, the beds and linens are the very best quality better than 5 star hotels. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could need and large enough for us to cook with easy. The outdoor pool and dock was great we also rented a boat and the kids enjoyed wakeboarding, fishing, and boating. My recommendation is to use the concierge service and have them deliver all your food prior to your arrival, they can also arrange for chefs to come and cook at the house for you. Pam is very easy to work with and responsive. We will definitely come back!

Beautiful Lake Austin home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, sleek, modern design home on Lake Austin was a very comfortable and convenient place to relax and enjoy Austin. The house is spacious, tastefully decorated and has several gathering areas, both inside and out. The seven of us - 3 adults and 4 kids - enjoyed it a ton! Highly recommend it and expect to return.

Fantastic vacation at Waterstone Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Waterstone over spring break this year. The house was everything we could have hoped for and more. The owner has thought of everything- the kitchen was fully stocked, the bedrooms clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated, the outdoor areas stunning. We loved soaking in the hot tub, roasting marshmallows in the fire pit and gazing at the stars in the clear night sky. The kids had a blast in the pool, playing ping pong and they even caught some fish! We travelled with our 2 kids (age 7 and 11) and two sets of grandparents, and everyone LOVED the house. We have already told several friends about this wonderful property, and there is no doubt that we will be returning as soon as our schedules allow! Thank you to the owners for allowing us to enjoy their beautiful home.

Worth Every Penny

  • 5 of 5

This house is magnificient. It's not only beautiful, but it's comfortable, user friendly, full of amenities and totally private. There's nothing missing that you could possibly want in a vacation home. In fact, it surpasses what you will find in the majority of rentals anywhere. Being there was like owning your own spectacular home for a few days.

Our family came from CA, New York and Dallas for a family reunion. The ages ranged from toddler to 60 years old. And this house was fabulous for each and every one of us. The beds and bedrooms were extraordinarily comfortable and beautiful (no expense spared on bedding and furnishings) The kitchen was awesome with it's size and appliances and special coffee makers. The site was

superb not only with it's gorgeous pool and deck and waterfall and hot tub but with it's own private beach below. The view of the lake was breathtaking. The video and game rooms were terrifc for family fun along with the ping pong table and large back porch/deck and fire pit for late night smores. The great room was large and roomy for all of us with floor to ceiling windows to take in the magnificient view.

The private lot with acres and acres of open space to walk and run and drive the provided golf cart, lent itself to hours of play and fun. There is also a golf course on the gated community grounds as well as racquetball and tennis. And, 8 deer ran past us in the afternoon.

Every picture of this house on the web is acurate. Everything is as you see it and beyond. We rented it at Thanksgiving but would love to rent it again in the summer. And, an added bonus was the customer service we received from start to finish. We couldn't have had better care. It made our stay so positive in every way. We are seasoned travelers, and cannot recommend Waterstone enough.

It is worth every penny and more.

Couples retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had five couples stay here for half of a week.. There was plenty of room, great hot tub and pool. Fireplaces inside and out. Kitchens inside and out. There was a huge array of electronic equipment to use and we had trouble learning how to use it. There were also things that needed repair. The owner had workmen out to do these repairs most of the time we were there. Beautifully decorated clean great views everywhere. It's isolated so bring in supplies. The lake is down 30 feet so forget about the dock, boating, etc. for now..The owner is very responsive and helpful. We loved it. Two golf courses nearby workout facility nearby, we brought bikes and enjoyed riding in the hills. Follow directions carefully when trying to find this place!

I will do all that I can to make your next stay PERFECT!! Please come again. Pam
