Overview

About the property

10 bedrooms (7 bdrm, 4.5 bath Main House + 3 bdrm 3.5 baths & half bath at pool

***ONE Weekend now available this summer due to cancelation! Take advantage now! (Aug 3-6)

Location, Location, LOCATION!!! Close to everything. No long, winding roads to get here. Sleeps 20 people in 10 bedrooms (not a room full of bunk beds and air mattresses) (2 kings, 7 queens, 5 twins). We have 7 full bathrooms and 3 half baths. This is important when you have a large group!

**Warning: We do not post on Craigslist ever....that is a scam.

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! (see map) You can walk to the main grocery store and restaurants across 620.

**We have a brand new wedding venue with a covered area overlooking the pool and lake and a sun deck above that is partially covered. We can host up to 85 guests.

We also offer "one stop shop" for your Bachelor and Bachelorette party needs with our new concierge services. Inquire for more info.

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' in 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 2-story 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 also 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 for extra chairs 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. We have cable TV to watch your favorite game or movie on the big screen.

We also cater to corporate retreats and events!

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

The main house has 7 bedrooms, 4.5 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. We only rent to one group at a time, so you will have privacy during your stay. There is also a half bath for the pool.

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 2 twins and another bedroom upstairs that has two queen beds and one twin. There is a new full bathroom on the main level to make 2 full baths and 1 half bath on the main level.

Downstairs (walk-out basement):

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). One bedroom downstairs has it's own full bath and there is a shared full bath as well.

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!

We are here to accommodate you (we live 10 min away) and also offer full concierge services to our guests! If you need something...just ask!

Guests love hiring Chef ' BeMa Rose' (for 12 or less ppl) or Chef Eric (up to 20 ppl) to cook meals during their stay from waffle bars to steak dinners!

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 and events of up to 85 people max ($2,000 event fee additional). We cannot host large events over 85 people due to neighborhood restrictions and parking limitations.

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 Summer is the Property Manager, of Villa De Suenos as well as a full service Concierge business called Bell Concierge. Tony and Summer personally manage all aspects of the property and rentals with great detail and care for their guests.

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).

Wedding/Staycation

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a wedding venue and a vacation all in one. First, let me talk about it as a wedding venue. It was perfect. We had 80 people, and there was more than enough room for everyone to sit and walk around, and parking both in the house and outside. I got ready in the guest house, so that let the guest come in the house before the wedding to stay cool. Then we had our perfect ceremony on the top balcony, which is half covered, so most of the guest were in the shade. Then they guest went inside for cocktail hour while we took family pictures. We had the reception downstairs by the pool where it easily fit 8 tables easily.

As for a stayaction, it was even more amazing. The layout of the house makes the rooms spread out so you never feel on top on one another. We had ages 8-86 and everyone was able to find something to love. The karaoke room was always in use, while my grandparents got to drink coffee and watch the sailboats inside. I preferred to be at the pool/hottub, while the teenagers loved taking the tram down to the lake to jump in.

The owners are the most wonderful, helpful people. They were always a moments away, and are so personable, you basically want to stay and talk with them all day.

Thank yall again for making our wedding perfect, we already have a group of friends and us planning to rerent again!

Beautiful property and home! Exquisite view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful house for a family reunion and it was the perfect house for us! Everyone from kids to grandparents loved all the amenities... pool, hot tub, private dock, music room, ping pong table, weight room, and the list goes on! Tony and Summer, the owners were the most involved and responsive owners I've ever seen for a rental property. They were constantly available throughout our stay, responded to texts within minutes most of the time, and went above and beyond to address our needs. You absolutely can't beat the location either... when you're looking out at the amazing view, you forget that you're only 20 minutes from downtown or 5 minutes from an HEB and any other store you'd ever need. Highly recommend. We will definitely be booking again at this house.

Spectacular House and View!!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property (main house and guest house) for my friend's bachelor party. It couldn't have been more perfect for our group. There were 15 of us and at no time did we feel crowded. Everyone had a comfortable place to sleep and relax. The pool was amazing, with and equally amazing view. The karaoke stage led to some late night entertainment and the gym was a plus. It was like every little detail had been thought of Summer and Tony were great hosts and were extremely helpful. I would totally recommend this place and hope to return!

Great house, beautiful views, phenomenal hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house over memorial day weekend for a bachelor party with 20 guys and had an absolutely amazing time. Summer and Tony were at the house to greet us and were great hosts right from the start. Summer did a walk through with us to go over everything which made understanding all the amenities of the house very easy. Tony was available all weekend via text for little questions about the house and for help with the hot tub/pool. The dock was great but for the most part we enjoy the pool and new patio area. The pictures from the pool area don't do it justice, it's beautiful in person. It was also very easy to get downtown, we took a van as a group one night and some of us took Ride Austin another night (only $35/trip) and both were good options. I would recommend this house to any large group regardless of the purpose of the trip as it has a little bit of everything for everyone, plus great hosts make all the difference. Thank you for making this trip what it was meant to be, a ton of fun!

AMAZING WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say what an outstanding experience I had with Summer and Tony at their amazing property on Lake Travis. We had a group of 11 guys for a long weekend/bachelor party and everything worked out perfectly. From a fully stocked fridge on arrival, perfect condition of the house/pool, and great hospitality, everything was outstanding and I highly recommend this property to anyone in the future. I know if we come back to Austin that Summer will be the first person I call! Super kind and professional, very timely in responses for questions as well. Thanks SO much for a great weekend!
