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 Rivercrest

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.

Excellent site for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

In Austin for graduation. Brought the entire family. The house held 12 people easily. The amenities are top notch, great gathering spaces for the family. Much better than any hotel. Being right on the lake is priceless as they say. The owners could not have been nicer or more helpful.

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!
