Steiner Ranch Neighborhood Association House Rental Photos and Description

10 bedrooms (7 bdrm, 3.5 bath Main House + 3 bdrm 3.5 bath Guest House)

Location, Location, LOCATION!!!

We are IN beautiful Austin Texas and THE closest you can get to downtown Austin on Lake Travis (25 minutes) We are 28 miles from Austin Bergstrom International Airport.. (see map) and 30 miles from Circuit of the Americas (Formula One-F1). We are near everything you need! (grocery, shopping, restaurants, entertainment). Lake Travis is 65 miles long and encompasses many outlining areas of Austin. We are close to everything! No driving down long, dangerous winding roads to get to us! (see map)

This luxury Lake Travis waterfront estate sits 80 feet above the lake (elevator/tram to the water) creating breathtaking views from every room. Huge resort style negative edge pool with swim-up bar, swim lane and 'beach area' for smaller kiddos. Outdoor kitchen by the pool (sink, full fridge, BBQ grill) as well as a pool bathroom with air conditioned changing room.

Large covered deck with wood burning fireplace overlooking the pool and lake and a sun deck above. This property is completely 'walled' with security gate at entrance. 2+ acres with plenty of parking (up to 20 cars). Walk through the doors and down the hall to a 180 degree lake view that will take your breath away! This estate sits on the south shore of the main basin, so we NEVER have low water issues! Lake Travis is full as of June 2015

We have a boat dock that you can tie jet-ski's or a boat up to. Again, we are not in a cove, so we have plenty of water in front of our house. Our dock sits in 40-50' deep water even when lake levels are at their lowest. If you are looking for lake front, this is very important! There is no scaling down rocks or climbing dangerously to the dock. We have a tram that takes you all the way to the bridge of the dock (no stairs when the lake is full).

Experience the gorgeous sunsets from the pool, decks, dock, or house without the sun glaring directly towards you (home faces N/S).

There's a movie theater that seats 8-10 with recliners (also with floor space and bean bags). A large 120' screen with surround sound, the screen retracts to reveal a karaoke/performance stage complete with drum set, amps and mics! Your guests will never forget the memories created in this room! (read reviews)

Free, strong Wi-Fi throughout the home as well as by the pool. Cable TV to watch your favorite game or movie on the big screen.

This estate is excellent for entertaining and has plenty of indoor/outdoor space for guests (and parking).

The main house has 7 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and is 5100 sq. ft. and the guesthouse has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths (each room in GH has an en suite bath) and is 1,727 sq. ft. They can be rented together or separately.

We only rent to one group at a time, so you will have privacy during your stay.

Main level:

Master bedroom: Lovely lake view from the king-sized bed, walk-in closet, his and her toilets, dual shower heads, huge bubble tub with fire place, hand-painted mural and speakers for that romantic bubble bath

There's a bedroom next to the master with another 'secret' bedroom upstairs that is accessed from the TV room (has two queen beds and one twin).


There are 4 bedrooms. Three rooms have queen beds and the other has 2 twin beds (all but one bedroom have views of the lake).

Guesthouse: (faces the main house, about 75 feet away)

It has 2 queen beds and 1 king, plus each has their own private bath (and a half bath off the living room)

This home was featured on MTV Teen Cribs in 2009! (Google MTV Teen Cribs episode 15)

We are here to accommodate you (we live 10 min away) and offer free concierge-like service to our guests! If you need something...just ask!

Guests love hiring Chef ' BeMa Rose' (for 12 or less ppl) or Chef Eric (12-20 ppl) to cook meals during their stay!

Email inquiries are preferred over phone calls. We will respond within 24 hours.

We can offer special pricing for weekday rentals, short-notice rentals and longer stays (7th night free).

*** Bachelor/Bachelorette Parties MUST be pre-approved and discussed with the owner prior to booking. Strict guidelines will apply as well as additional damage deposits.

**We can host small weddings of up to 65 people max ($1,000 event fee additional), but we cannot host large weddings (due to neighborhood restrictions, parking limitations). Read our reviews to see what you've been missing!!

About Summer Bell

This is our custom dream home that we designed and (re)built paying attention to every detail. We love to entertain and have friends and family over, so we designed it with that in mind. You'll leave here noticing every detail that we have put into our home. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we have!

Summer Bell purchased this house in 2004

Why Summer Bell chose Austin

We have lived in Austin since 1999. We built this custom home as our dream home in 2005. Tony is a Mechanical Engineer turned home designer/builder and I am the Property Manager, co-owner of Villa De Suenos . I am also a full-time mom to our 10 year old daughter. Tony and I personally manage all aspects of our property and rental

What makes this house unique

It's the best location in Austin! And Austin is the best city in Texas! You have all the conveniences of Austin and it's THE closest to downtown that you can get on Lake Travis. We love this part of Austin because it has so much to offer and we love the hills and views. We enjoy boating on Lake Travis (wakeboarding, tubing and wake-surfing).

Incredible House. Can not be beat!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Summer and Tony's house with a group of 19 friends. We rented out the guest house and there was plenty of room for everyone. Summer and Tony provided an incredible experience from the check in tour to the quick response for any questions and requests. I have not seen a better view of the lake than from this house's living room. The pool is incredible and there is a top notch sound system wherever you go. The media room is great for late night karaoke or just watching a game. This house has all the toys and amenities you could ever want. Thank you so much for making our weekend unforgettable!

AMAZING family lake house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had THE MOST AMAZING time here. We invited our families and close friends to spend the weekend with us (19 people slept very comfortably!) before a 10-year anniversary party we had with ~50 people. The house was an oasis of fun and relaxation for the weekend and the perfect venue for the party. Tony and Summer were a joy to work with before the rental, during the rental (Tony came by to help us get kareoke working!), and afterward. This is THE HOUSE to spend the weekend on lake travis.

My girlfriend and I booked this house for our 10 year anniversary party, and we were blown away by the view, the amenities, and not to mention the amazing hosting by the Summer and Tony. The location of the house is perfect as it's only a 30 min drive to downtown Austin, while other houses on the lake are a 1-2 hour drive to the city since they are on the other side of the lake. We will absolutely keep this place in mind for future events!

Bachelorette Party Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for my bachelorette party and it was absolutely perfect. The owners were very easy to work with and made booking a breeze for me, which was much appreciated. Upon arrival, we got a tour and helpful instructions for working the karaoke room, sound systems, etc. We used the owners' recommendations for a party bus on Friday night, as well as for a boat on Saturday afternoon, and both were fantastic experiences. We honestly could have stayed at the house all weekend, though - it had everything we needed! The grill was easy to use, as was the karaoke room (we used it for both karaoke and a movie on Sunday night). And the pool was absolutely breathtaking! I give the house and all of the amenities an A+. When we arrived, everything was clean and tidy and clean towels were provided for both the showers and the pool. Check out was also super easy. I could not have picked a better place to celebrate my bachelorette! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a luxurious getaway or planning a group weekend escape!

Perfect for a large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Every one or two years my wife and I take our children, their spouses, and our grandchildren on a family vacation. Since there is a total of 16 of us, it requires a large property with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms unless we choose a hotel-type environment. Our desire to facilitate the bonding of the cousins (our grandchildren), a property meets our goals better than multiple rooms in a resort hotel environment.

The Bell property met and exceeded our desires and requirements. We utilized both the main house and the guest house for our group, and that worked out very well. My wife and I chose to sleep in one of the three bedrooms in the guest house since we would normally quit for the night earlier than our children and grandchildren.

The property is quite large, over two acres, with a wall around the three sides that don't front the lake, so we felt very comfortable if the grandchildren wanted to do things outside at night after they could no longer go down to the lake. The grandchildren also got maximum use out of the media room. We would often find several of them asleep in that room with the TV still going when we got up in the morning.

One thing we all appreciated was the outstanding Wi-Fi on the property. Our coverage was both complete throughout the property and very fast, even when multiple people were on-line at the same time.

The grandchildren enjoyed swimming in both the swimming pool and the lake. Access to the boathouse was very easy for them using the elevator down to the boathouse. Several of both the children and the adults also enjoyed fishing from the boat house, and even caught a number of small fish.

We rented a ski boat for several of the our days there, and it was very convenient to dock it along the boat house's side.

We ate all our meals except one dinner at the house. The two tables in the main house's living area were perfect for all 16 of us. And the house is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, and utensils. We found it helpful to use plastic cups, plastic silverware, and paper plates and bowls for at least our lunches, and often for the grandchildren at dinner and breakfast. We also very much appreciated the 5-gallon water appliance so that we weren't constantly going to the store to buy more bottled water.

The last night my wife and I quizzed everyone about how they felt about the week, and they all said they wanted us to bring them back next summer.

Third Time Remains a Charm

  • 5 of 5

We returned for our third year in a row to Summer and Tony's beautiful Lake Travis home. Once again, it was perfect for us and we had a great time. We enjoyed the lovely infinity swimming pool, the karaoke room, the playhouse for the little one in our party, the lovely panoramic views of a Lake that looks fabulous, the exercise room and a great house where there was room for the whole extended family. We both cooked and dined at the house as well as enjoyed the great Austin restaurants. We rented boats and jet skis and all ages (including four teenagers) had a great time. Each year, I question whether or not to try to find something "new" and each time the family unanimously says, "no, let's go back to the house." Summer or Tony is available all during the stay and if anything is an issue, they are there immediately. It is worth the money and is a great deal considering how the number of people that can come together under one roof. We love it!
