Hudson Bend House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

This huge 'Texcany' home is close to Lakeway, Carlos and Charlies and the Oasis, 20 minutes to the new Galleria Mall. Downtown Austin is just 30 minutes away. All west windows have a Lake Travis view, with the Lake right across the street. Boats can be launched at Mansfield Dam (2 miles away). The house has 3 living areas and was remodeled two years ago in a modern/western style and great fun for groups.

The lot is almost 1 acre with lots of space for BBQ or picnic. There is a gorgeous view of the lake from most of the rooms, including an upstairs deck for watching the sunset.

Great place for lakeside family reunion

  • 5 of 5

It was a huge house for a family of four. The bedrooms upstairs were a great retreat away from the noise of other family members and the balcony was a great place for relaxation overlooking Lake Travis. The house has all the amenities for the young ones and the young once :) from backyard swing set and playground and barbq pit to large family rooms for family games and conversations. The house is very close to the lake, a walking distance. Great place to rent pontoon boats or jet skis at the Paradise Cove Marina across the lake house. Love the Texan decos. The owner, Bill, was super nice and very accommodating about the many details and questions that we needed to work out for my families.

Delightful Oasis for busy wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the house for our hectic out-of-state weekend for my daughter's wedding. Not being at all familiar with the area I was extremely pleased with how well this house worked out for us. It is conveniently located to everything you would possibly need, including the wedding venue and the airport. We had family and bridal party members flying in to Austin from California at all different times. I had to make several trips to airport and back, picking up and dropping off people before and after the wedding. The house is in beautiful quiet surroundings; you would never know you were so close to a large metropolitan area. We were able to comfortably accommodate hosting a lovely rehearsal dinner. The backyard was perfect for my grandchildren to play and keep themselves happily entertained. Everyone loved it! The owner is very good to work with and emails were always promptly responded to.

We enjoyed the opportunity to become more familiar with the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. This location is perfect as a home base for some wonderful day trips to explore.

Great house, very nice owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house over Easter weekend to have a reception for our small wedding. The owner, Bill, was extremely nice and accommodating about the many details and questions that we needed worked out. He was flexible with the dates, and was very reasonable about all of our different requirements.

He was also VERY accessible. Any time we had a question, he had answered the email within 1-2 hours, making the event flow very smoothly.

The house is also amazing. The backyard is perfect for get-togethers, and the house has plenty of space to hang out inside as well. The kitchen is large and well stocked with supplies we needed, such as bowls, mixing spoons, etc.

The house is also very close to the lake, within about a 5 minute walk, which was really nice.

The neighbors were very helpful and offered advice about parking, signage, as well as ice and supplies! I wouldn't expect someone who has to deal with renters all the time next door to be so nice, but she really was. They do have a dog that wanders over from time to time, but he's an absolute sweetheart, and doesn't bark or bother, just kind of wanders.

All in all I would definitely recommend this house for a weekend family getaway or reunion, both the owner and the house are outstanding.
