Montina Beach is one of a few properties on Lake Travis with a gradual slope to the water. The park like setting from the beach area has been described by a real estate appraiser as the 'FINEST LAND on Lake Travis.' The view looks out across one of the largest areas of the lake with some of the largest hills in the Texas Hill Country as the backdrop. You will find this lake front area much more scenic than anything in Lakeway due to the larger lake area and the bigger hills; and much closer to town/amenities than Briarcliff or Lago Vista.
The beach area is large and covered mostly with grass. There is a large rock bon fire pit for those special evenings with friends. Yes, wood is supplied complimentary. Please check in advance to see if there is a burn ban or if the pit is underwater. There is also a grass volleyball court for your energetic gatherings with friends.
The property is located on the highly desirable south shore of Lake Travis, close to Austin's vibrant lifestyle and near all the amenities you desire from the finest in shopping at the new Hill Country Galleria and Lakeline Mall to great restaurants including Hudson's on the Bend, Rocco's, The Grove, Steiner Ranch Steak House, The Oasis, Mesa Rosa and Ray's 827 Restaurant.. There are six exceptional golf courses within ten minutes drive. The house is located on approximately six acres with another house that the owners live in.
Austin's legendary night life must certainly be experienced if you have never been to downtown Austin at night. The house is a great place to stay with friends when in town to watch the exceptional athletic programs of the University of Texas Longhorns. It is about a 25 minute drive to downtown or the UT campus.
Boat and jet ski rentals are available nearby; or launch your own at a nearby marina and park it at the dock on premises. Spend a day wakeboarding, water skiing or parasailing. Yes, they will pick you up right on your boat dock to go parasailing! If you are young enough in spirit, you may also want to venture into Devil's Cove for one of America's biggest parties every summer weekend - it is a five minute boat ride away.
The house has a wonderful open design. The kitchen, living room, breakfast area and dining room are all combined in a very large area without walls that makes for a great social gathering point. There are two outdoor living areas for your enjoyment. One bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath. The second master bedroom has a queen bed and also a private bath and must be accessed either through its own private entrance from the outside or by going through the third smaller bedroom. The small bedroom has a full size bed and a pull-out twin bed that recesses under the full size bed. The smaller third bedroom has access to a third, common area bathroom. A comfortable futon is located in an area of the great room and a twin bed sleeper sofa is also available in the living area. All bedrooms have televisions.
Please note that photos were taken with the lake level at a more normal level and the lake levels can fluctuate from drought to floods. Please ask the owner if you want to know the relative lake level.

About Phyllis Lacey
Phyllis Lacey purchased this House in 1996
Why Phyllis Lacey chose Hudson Bend
You will love the vast wide open feel of the beach with its absolutely spectacular view, which is framed by some of the largest hills in the Texas Hill Country.
What makes this House unique
The house is located on Lake Travis but close enough to downtown Austin, the University of Texas and the many lake area activities to make it convenient to nightlife and UT sports and places such as The Oasis or the Hill Country Galleria. Choose a peaceful evening under the stars or all the action you want at the places above.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Beautiful property but linens and towels could be replaced. Most of them were stained.
Beautiful location and owner very accommodating
well stocked and clean
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very well stocked clean and comfortable. The huge backyard was great to throw the football/frisbee and it is pretty close to Austin. Two of the bedrooms are set up that you need to go through one to get to the main living area or go outside and around, but it wasn't a problem for us.
Would stay again
Great and wonderful place! The home owners are great and we enjoyed the view of the lake.
The Sisters Seven Reunion enjoyed the place, plenty of room for dining, visiting and enjoy ourselves in the cool evenings viewing the beautiful Lake Travis.
We had many questions and extra needs and Ms. Lacy took care of us always.
This is an A+++ place.
Had a wonderful Labor Day weekend staying here with family. If you enjoy the water as much as we do, this is a great swimming spot. The swim dock was really great. We packed a gourmet lunch and took it down to the water and pretty much spent all day there. They had umbrellas which was nice when you wanted to get out of the sun. The water can be a little rough as this is a busy lake but there is a nice beach entrance if you have little ones. It was very relaxing just to swim and watch all the boats. The property is beautiful. There are nice views of the lake, we enjoyed sitting out on the patio in the evenings and even while eating our meals in the main living area we enjoyed the views. If you like bird watching there is a lot to see. The house is well equipped and the beds were comfortable. The area has lots of eateries and shops. We enjoyed the drive from North Austin up to the lake. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful property!
Great home. Beautiful lake
We had a great stay on Lake Travis at this property. The house had a very well stocked kitchen and was comfortable for our family. There are 3 bedrooms, but the one bedroom is a walk thru to the back room so if you have anyone with privacy issues, they may not want to stay in the middle room. However, the back room has a private entrance, so you could work it out if it was really inconvenient. The dock was fun to hang out on and with some creativity, we were able to tie up the 25 foot pontoon boat we rented for the weekend. We launched the boat at the dam and it was just a short ride to the house. The lake level was high and we had a great time, puttering around. Unfortunately there was a burn ban in effect and we weren't able to use the great fire pit. Would love to go back on a little cooler day to enjoy the great lawn and play some volley ball or frisbee.
Lots of room for a big family
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. The kitchen/dining/living area is a spacious open floor plan with lots of room for lounging, watching tv, and visiting with other guests. The back deck has a beautiful view of the lake. The kitchen was well equipped for us to cook a big Thanksgiving dinner. The owners ensured that we were provided what we needed to have a bonfire on the beach by the lake. We will definitely stay here again.
