El Sueño (The Dream) is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath Villa located in the Hollows on the North shore of Lake Travis.

The open floor plan features a wall of windows with unobstructed lake views from the main living area, dining room and kitchen. Our Villa is professionally decorated with all new furnishings, paint and carpets. We use the Villa ourselves when it is not rented out, so our kitchen is well stocked and the villa is set up with everything you will need to stay for the weekend or the week!

There is an impressive array of amenities, including a spectacular multi-level beach club with infinity edge pool, seasonal restaurant, award winning marina with boat rental onsite, sand volleyball court, playscape, and miles of scenic hiking and biking trails. The Hollows does have a private boat ramp and trailer storage area available for an additional fee. You can fill your days biking, hiking, swimming, boating and fishing. Or, if you prefer, just relax and take in view.

Our large outdoor patio features both a seating and dining area as well as an electric grill. The Villa is a corner unit with no other buildings next to it so you will have unobstructed 180 degree lake views as well as absolute privacy. Our patio stays shaded from 11 am throughout the day and evening, making it a very comfortable place to relax and enjoy the lake views after spending all day out on the lake or at the pool.

The main living area has a leather sectional sofa and two comfy recliner chairs with an large ottoman. Put up your feet and watch the game or a movie on the large 50' high definition flat screen TV with Blue Ray DVD player. Free Wi-Fi is also available in our Villa so bring your laptop and stay connected.

The fully appointed gourmet kitchen features stainless appliances, refrigerator with ice maker, and granite counter tops. It is stocked with all the appliances, pots & pans, etc. you will need during your stay. Our large dining table has comfortable seating for six.

The master suite features a King size bed with TemperPedic like mattress and luxury sheets and pillows and flat screen HDTV. The blinds have a black out lining for those who like to sleep late. The large on suite bath has plush towels, a roomy shower and double basin vanity. There is plenty of storage in the large closet and dresser.

The junior master suite also has a King size bed with TemperPedic like mattress and luxury sheets and pillows and flat screen HDTV. It has black out curtains for those who want to sleep in. It also has a terrific lake view.

The bunk room has four twin size beds to accommodate four comfortably. The second bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom and features a large tub/shower combination. There is also a full size washer and dryer in the unit.

This is the perfect set up for families with kids or two couples to share.

About Ilonka Berryman

We are the Berryman family from Spring Texas. We have two boys and love escaping to the Hill Country every chance we get. After traveling with our kids over the last couple of years, we decided that renting a villa over hotel was the best way to vacation. We all have space to spread out and truly relax. When we discovered The Hollows, we knew right away it was the perfect place to relax and make memories with our boys.

Ilonka Berryman purchased this condo in 2009

Why Ilonka Berryman chose Northshore On Lake Travis

We manage the villa ourselves so you will get personalized service and not have to deal with a property management company. We have been coming to this area for a long time and are happy to share all fun things to do in the area with you. You will find a binder in our villa that is full of information that we have collected over the years on area restaurants, activities, maps and suggestions on things to do.

What makes this condo unique

Our villa is in one of the only buildings at the Hollows that faces the lake directly. We have great lake views from all the main living areas. This Villa is a corner unit with no other buildings next to us, making for great unobstructed views and privacy.

Everything was just as pictures described, beautiful view. Owners have thought of everything with starter supplies and all necessary equipment. Even have movies to watch. Furnishings were great too. Will come back. Thank you for renting your home to us.

The Villa was absolutely beautiful!!! Very clean. Excellent views of Lake Travis.

  • 5 of 5

I've visited The Hollows at Lake Travis many times and I must say this was our favorite visit. The Berryman's did a great job providing all the necessary info needed for our stay. The Villa was absolutely beautiful!! Very clean, furnished beautifully inside/out, fantastic view of the lake and plenty of other amenities. Really liked having VIP Marina pick us up at Northshore whenever we decided to rent a boat.

We will definitely be back next year!!!

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Five high school girlfriends joined me for a mini reunion. It was the perfect place. The panoramic view from the deck took our breath away! The three bedroom condo was well appointed and comfortable. The balcony faces west so we had coffee time in the morning before it got too hot - August in Texas, after all! - and then sat out again in the evening when there was a breeze. We hung out by the pool and ate at the Beach Club at The Hollows. Food and service were so good that we chose pool time rather than going into nearby towns. The condo was clean and prepared for us when we arrived. Our hostess communicated well; instructions and directions were clear. It was more than enough space for the six of us. The only suggestion we could make is maybe a fan on the balcony so we could extend our time looking at beautiful Lake Travis. If you're planning a trip to the North Shore of Lake Travis, you should stay here. We plan to stay again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! We are glad you had a nice weekend with friends at our Villa and enjoyed all the Hollows amenities. We will definitely look into adding a fan to the patio for those hot August days . Our patio faces Southeast so while we do get a little sun in the mornings, it does stay shaded from noon throughout the rest of the day making it the perfect place to enjoy the lake views. We hope to have you as a guest again in the future!

Beautiful setting, fantastic facilities

  • 4 of 5

The Hollows is a beautiful area on Lake Travis with fantastic facilities that we weren't expecting. Three swimming pools, poolside food and drinks, entertainment and even face painting for the kids. Set right on the lake side we could not have asked for a better location.

The condo had amazing views over the Lake, with a large balcony to accommodate the whole family. We had plenty of space inside too which was comfortable and well maintained.

Couple of slight negatives to consider.

Parking is a real challenge with very very few spaces near the condo. There is space below the condo on a roadside but you then need to walk up a track which is impossible with two small children or anyone unsteady on their feet. We had to drop everyone off and then one person drive the car back down the hill and walk up. It's fine but something you need to consider.

The condo is also very basically appointed. Even if you're only staying a couple of days you will need to bring toilet roll, kitchen roll, dishwasher tablets, laundry tablets to wash clothes and towels. For the money we paid I would have expected these basics so just come prepared.

But we've had a wonderful stay and will definitely consider coming back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review! We are glad your family was able to enjoy the pools and all the fantastic amenities and seasonal entertainment that the Hollows provides. The Hollows is a real gem of a resort that many people are starting to discover and it has become a popular destination. As more and more people are starting to rent their condo's, the parking lot can sometimes run out of available spots. Unfortunately we can't control how many cars people bring. When multiple families rent condo's together and bring 2 to 3 cars for each condo, the parking lot can fill up fast. However, there is an overflow parking area directly below the condo so there is always room to park. As with most vacation rentals, we supply a few rolls of toilet paper & paper towel, dish tabs & laundry pods, so if guests have not had time to go the the grocery store prior to check in, they have those items on hand to get them started. This is common practice for vacation rentals since we do not have daily maid service like a hotel to re-stock items daily. We have found this is the best way to handle the paper goods etc. as some guests bring 2 people and stay 3 nights, others bring 8 and stay a month. We are very clear in both our rental agreement and check in information on what items are provided, and that guests are responsible for bringing paper goods etc. for the duration of their stay. Guest satisfaction is very important to us. If you could not locate the starter supplies, then a quick phone call to notify me, is all that was needed to have that promptly taken care of. I just want to ensure to you, and all future guests, that we value your business and strive to provide detailed check in information, which includes information on what to bring, so that your stay is an enjoyable one :)
