About the property

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

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 vacation 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 overlooking the pool and lake and a partially covered 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 both homes 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, 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 or for events) 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).

***We no longer allow Bachelor/Bachelorette parties.

**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 Hughes Park Lake

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).

Remarkable home on prime location

  • 5 of 5

Truly a special home situated perfectly on the lake. Too many reasons this home is a great choice for your next Austin vacation, so here are the categories to consider:


#2 Home Amenities — home theater, pool, hot tub, huge dock, fire pit, BBQs, sound system, bedroom accommodations, parking

#3 Hosts — Summer and Tony are extensions of this house. They go the extra mile to make sure you have a great time + they know every service provider in the area, so you're guaranteed to be well taken care of by other vendors you hire (boat rentals, caterers, etc.)

#4 Convenience -- this home is situated 25 minutes from downtown Austin, which makes for unbeatable access to the house, grocery, booze, boat rentals, etc.

Only thing to consider: The eastern cove is regarded as the windiest part of the lake; and wind affects temperature and boating conditions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We enjoyed having you all and hope to see you back soon! The cold front that came through on the day of your arrival was definitely a bit windy from the north and chilly (that's Texas for ya!). Thankfully the next two days were beautiful weather. We are located on the south shore of the main basin. I will point out, the wind that you are referring to is only during the cooler months. During the warmer months (March-mid Oct), the wind is mostly from the south, which is blocked by our cliff and is THE best part of the lake for water sports and boating (even on windy days.) We are fortunate to have 9-10 months of year of great "outdoor weather" here in Austin!

Fabulous place to stay with family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

We really impressed our family and friends with renting this luxury lake home. Everyone was raving and we all had a fantastic time. The view is stunning. There is plenty of room for a large group, with a diversity of activities. Our favorite was the theater room, with the thousand of songs to chose from for karaoke. The owners thought of everything- from the multiple washers and dryers to the large ice maker. The property is well-maintained and the customer service from the owner is first-rate. We would definitely recommend renting this home.

Great location, great, view, great house.

  • 5 of 5

We used this location for an executive retreat for 12 people and it was perfect. Plenty of beds, great lay-out, plenty of different areas for break-out groups. We really had a great time

Perfect home for our team retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home has million dollar views and the location is easy to get to with direct access to everything you need within 10 minutes. The house is well equipped with both the essentials and all the extras, like the home gym. For our group, we stayed out on our boat and being able to fully use the boat house to store our boat, boards and tubes, made the trip extremely enjoyable!! For the non-boaters in our group, they only got out of the pool and hot tub to eat and sleep. There really is something for everyone to enjoy whether you want to relax or play. Summer and Tony are EXTREMELY accommodating and easy to work with! Our group feels blessed to have experienced this beautiful home.

4th Year - Superb Vacation

  • 5 of 5

For the 4th year, our family has returned to the beautiful lake house of Tony's and Summer's. Every year it gets better and it was wonderful the first time we came. We did not think that they could improve on the house but they did. Our family consisted of 14 people ranging from grandparents to teenagers and a 4 year old. Everyone had a great time whether using the beautiful swimming pool, lying on the deck, playing in the playhouse, wakesurfing and jet skiing or just enjoying the panoramic view of Lake Travis from the living room. Before making the reservation for this year, I asked the family if they wanted to go to a "new place." It was a unanimous "absolutely not" . We hope to go again next year.

Owner's Response: We truly look forward to your visit each year and feel honored that you all want to come back each year! We love what we do and being able to provide a beautiful setting for beautiful, lasting memories makes us very happy! Thank you again! Summer and Tony

Temple, TX


  • 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!
