Overview

Camelot Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 1 guest half bath, sleeps 10

A retreat in the hills of the Barton Creek Preserve sits two miles from Lost Creek, Barton Creek, One World Theater, and Austin Country Clubs; and six miles from the Downtown Center, the southern edges of the University of Texas, and Zilker Park. This rambling, stone and glass house sits on expansive property and a cul-de-sac. It is a dream vacation home that provides the privacy, space and rural quiet in a suburban area that can accommodate visitors, short term lessees, and special events in the area.

The house has 4 bedrooms (one is a loft), 4 1/2 baths plus a casita with 1 bedroom,1 full bath. and a small kitchenette. There are King or Queen size beds in each bedroom with spacious bathrooms, walk-in closets in each room, and an additional loft living area, which also accommodates two twin beds, a full bathroom and walk-in closet. The guest ½ bath is accessible from the main living area.

There is a full custom designed kitchen, pantry space, full laundry, breakfast nook and separate dining area for 12, a bar, and plenty of room for entertaining or sprawling in two inside living areas. Stone Adriatic-designed decks around the house reveal secluded Hill Country views, classic Texas landscaping, and breathtaking sunsets. Steps away is a trail down into the canyon preserve and a Lost Creek tributary: its pools, waterfalls and wildlife.

The furnishings are ample and a cozy eclectic mix of contemporary and Austin eclectic. There is also a separate, rustic casita available as an additional guesthouse. It is a studio design with a full bathroom and kitchenette.

About Lucija

I am energetic, happy, caring and fun loving Austinite. I was born in Croatia and got to Texas as fast as I could!

Lucija purchased this estate in 2009

Why Lucija chose Texas

The house has the feel of a very private retreat. It is so peaceful and relaxing, yet all of Austin's fantastic entertainment is easily accessible.

What makes this estate unique

The vaulted ceilings in the master bathroom are truly unique.

A perfect villa for a relaxed vacation

  • 5 of 5

The villa is superb.This place turned out to be exactly what we wanted, a calm and quiet place to enjoy a relaxed weekend with friends. The villa is in Austin mountains amidst wilderness. The house was very kept and clean. The interiors, the backyard, the kitchen everything was perfect. We had fun doing the trails near the house followed by a perfect barbeque meal in the evening in the backyard. The owner Lucy is a very sweet and considerate lady.We were 10 adults with a kid and a baby. Lucy didn't charge us extra for the lil ones :) Also we had some issue with the AC in the house but she was very prompt to resolve the problem and make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. I have already recommended this place to few of my other friends.

Incredible house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This house is like a Hollywood hills mansion! Eight of stayed here and had plenty of room. The decor was incredible with lovely surprises in every corner. It has a European flare.the owner is a delightful energetic talented woman named Lucy. She masterminded amazing renovations and has live plants and orchids everywhere. The house is fully equipped with everything! Washer soap, hair dryers, extra tooth brushes, kitchen spices, sugar, coffee makers, loss of towels and linens. The house is very clean. The curb appeal is not like the house. Lucy has plans to renovate the exterior with a graduated circular drive. You will be very happy and amazed with this beautiful home!

Best host best house ever had

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and have lots of beds in it. It perfectly fits our party of 11 people and a few beds left. It's very clean inside and facilities are great.

Especially host Lucy is so friendly and get back to each question immediately. Thanks Lucy for all considerate hosting.

Very cozy and laid back place !

  • 5 of 5

My softball team from New Orleans visited Austin for a week long softball tournament. While some of the team elected to stay in the city hotels, I was lucky enough to have booked Lucy's hideaway home. Everything we needed to cook was available, a wine bar, full fridge etc to help 8 of us relax and stay in and cook. We even had a marriage proposal ! The table and common area was marvelous for everyone to sit and eat and then play cards, games and share a great time rather than be cooped up in a hotel room all week. Being from South Louisiana please understand that we don't really get excited about wooded areas and seeing deer but on the other hand it was also cool for us. Can't say enough about Lucy as an awesome host as she was so nice and we even left her flowers. If you want to relax and enjoy friends away from the city it is a wonderful place. Thanks LUCY ! We will book you again next time we visit Austin!

Uncomfortable Stay

  • 1 of 5

There's no doubt this house is beautiful!

But Lucy made us feel extremely uncomfortable. It is stated that she can come to the house whenever she pleases, which isn’t the problem. However, she came in very abruptly and started questioning why there were so many cars outside when it was clear from the beginning there would be 14 people staying. While she continued on to question us she also went out of her way to mention how she has to pay a mortgage and bills for the house. Which overall just made it extremely uncomfortable to continue our stay and definitely put a damper over the rest of our day. She continued to pace the house as if she were looking for something, entering in and out of bedrooms while some guest were still sleeping. I’ve used Homeaway and VRBO before and have never had this problem. First and last time staying here.

Absolutely Fabulous Villa and Awesome Host

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to Austin to attend our son's graduation from University of Texas Law School. This property was attractive to us because of the location, as well as because it had the the number of bedrooms with the beds that we required. We also appreciated that each bedroom had en-suite bathrooms. The listing description was very accurate although the house was much more impressive in person. The house is beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. The house was very clean, with plenty of extra bed linens and a very well stocked kitchen. The views from the master bedroom and bathroom and the outside areas are simply breathtaking. Lucy was extremely kind, helpful and very accessible during our entire stay. The nearby grocery store and bbq restaurant that Lucy recommended were excellent. We highly recommend this property. Thank you Lucy! You are the best! We look forward to staying at this property and any other properties that Lucy has available to rent.
