About Pam Bernhardt

I have been in real estate since 1974. I love lake front living in Austin and enjoy sharing the beauty of the lake with others. I know the ins and outs of Austin real estate so don't hesitate to ask me about any areas.

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.

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.

5 Star Luxury Retreat on Lake Austin

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning property! Pam and her husband are the perfect hosts. They were very accommodating with our arrival time and even stayed to show us all the amazing bells and whistles of the house. It was the perfect getaway for a fun weekend with friends. There are two amazing master suites with gorgeous bathrooms. We felt like we were staying at a 5 star resort. Everything is new and clean and perfectly manicured. The beds were super comfortable with crisp white linens. There was bottled water and even a coffee maker in our bathroom! The furnishings are beautiful and there was a TV in every room...which was perfect for watching the Super Bowl. We didn't miss a thing. Pam also put us in touch with a great concierge service that helped us find a private chef. The house is perfectly located on Lake Austin with gorgeous views! We can't wait to go back!!

Owner's Response: Celina, what a lovely review and thank you. Tom and I were so excited to have you stay with us for the month of February. On top of that getting to have your friends come for Super Bowl weekend was the icing on the cake. Next year come during the month of May and we can show you how much fun the lake really is. Thank you again. Pam

Amazing home!

This is truly an incredible home. The pictures do not do it justice. It is very well laid out and had everything we needed. Everything exceeded our expectations. The owners were great and very helpful. We have already recommended this property to friends. Thanks again to the owners! We will be back soon I hope.

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.
