Space 1,415 sq. ft.
Property type condo

About the property

3 bedrooms, large corner villa with spacious balcony- 1410 square ft.(Sleeps 8)

El Sueño "The Dream" is located in The Hollows Resort Community on the North shore of Lake Travis. Our Hilltop Villa has one of the best views of any condos at the Hollows and is a great way to experience the Texas Hill Country and all it has to offer. Feel your stress melt away the moment you walk through the front door and take in the spectacular lake views.


The Hollows is located on 1431 near Lago Vista. It is about a 50 minute drive into downtown Austin, 35 minutes to the Domain for shopping and upscale restaurants, 20 minutes into the city of Cedar Park were you will find all major retailers, grocery and dining options, 10 minutes to Lago Vista for local grocery store and restaurants and 30 minutes to Marble Falls. Bergstrom Airport is 40 miles from the Hollows. You will love our place because of the peaceful setting and great views you will experience!


Our 3 bedroom Villa is a spacious 1410 square feet with large corner balcony. We don't have another building next to us so you can sit on the patio and enjoy the views without neighbors looking in on you from the balcony next door. The balcony has two seating areas and an electric grill and stays shaded all afternoon making it a great pace to hang out after a day spent at the pool or the lake.

The bedrooms all have comfortable TemperPedic like mattresses, flat screen TV's, and black out drapes for those who like to sleep in.

The Living room has a comfy sectional sofa, two recliner chairs and large 50" HDTV with blu-ray player and fantastic lake views!

We use the Villa ourselves when it is not rented out, so our kitchen is well stocked and the villa is set up with everything you will need to stay for the weekend or the week! Blender, Keurig, coffee pot, toaster, basic spices and dining table with seating for 6.

We also have a full size washer and dryer in the villa


The Hollows is a true Texas style family resort community. At 1400 acres, it is a large community so the amenities are spread out. All the condos available for short term rental are located on the Hilltop to take in the Great Lake Travis views, and the Beach Club pool is down by the lake and marina. Our villa is less than 1 mile from the Beach club area which is where the pools & hot tubs are located. You can get there by car (about a 2 minute drive) or there is a paved walking nature trail from our villa to the Beach Club area.


The Hollows has an impressive array of amenities including a multi-level Beach Club with infinity edge pool, seasonal restaurant, award winning marina with onsite boat rental, cove for lake swimming, sand volleyball court, playground and miles of scenic hiking and biking trails. Use of these amenities is included in our nightly rate.


The Hollows does have a boat ramp with secure trailer parking. This is available for an additional fee. The marina also has a limited amount side tie slips available for guests who wish to keep their boat in the water during their stay. Arrangements for rental must be made with the Northshore marina directly for overnight slip rental.


Upon check in, you will find a large binder full of information on the community, suggestions on things to do, local restaurants etc. We manage our villa ourselves and are always available by phone or text should our guests need help with anything during their stay.


Occupancy can not exceed a total of 8 guests (this includes infants and toddlers). All guests must be registered by the owner to be able to use the Hollows amenities and will be required to sign an online rental agreement and guest registration. Pets are not allowed - we will not make exceptions for pets of any kind. There is a minimum age requirement of 25 to reserve our Villa.

About Ilonka Berryman

We are the Berryman family from Spring Texas. We have two boys and love escaping to the Hill Country every chance we get. After traveling with our kids over the last couple of years, we decided that renting a villa over hotel was the best way to vacation. We all have space to spread out and truly relax. When we discovered The Hollows, we knew right away it was the perfect place to relax and make memories with our boys.

Ilonka Berryman purchased this condo in 2009

Why Ilonka Berryman chose Northshore On Lake Travis

We manage the villa ourselves so you will get personalized service and not have to deal with a property management company. We have been coming to this area for a long time and are happy to share all fun things to do in the area with you. You will find a binder in our villa that is full of information that we have collected over the years on area restaurants, activities, maps and suggestions on things to do.

What makes this condo unique

Our villa is in one of the only buildings at the Hollows that faces the lake directly. We have great lake views from all the main living areas. This Villa is a corner unit with no other buildings next to us, making for great unobstructed views and privacy.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I moved 3000 miles apart and decided to meet in the Austin area where our friend works. We wanted a place where we could relax and didn’t mind being 45 minutes from the hospital he works at. This ended up being a great spot to do that. It was great to have two bedrooms with king size beds as we both brought our partners. The host was responsive and the House was in perfect condition for us.

The sunrise over Lake Travis may have been my favorite feature of this house. Also had good working wireless, tons of TV channels, and comfortable beds. Their is a community gym that while not big was sufficient for my workouts while I was there.

The only disappointing thing to note about this property is in the winter the community pool and hot tub are not maintained. We expected the pool to be too cold but the hot tub was running but not hot (slightly warm) and had a ton of leaves in it. A disappointment but not the end of the world. I can only imagine how great this spot is in the summer. We hope to be back and take some jet skis out on the lake.

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a nice stay and were able to spend time with friends at El Sueño. I do want to note that the pool is professionally cleaned and maintained weekly by a pool service company. We do let our guests know in the check in information we send, that the pool is not a heated pool and the hot tubs are heated on the weekends for guest use during the winter months. Unfortunately with the unusually cold and windy weather we have been having, it is easy for leaves to blow into the water. Rest assured, the pool area is maintained by the Hollows year round. We hope to have you as a guest again in the summer when you can really experience all the fabulous amenities the Hollows has to offer!

The Villa was absolutely beautiful!!! Very clean. Excellent views of Lake Travis.

  • 5 of 5

I've visited The Hollows at Lake Travis many times and I must say this was our favorite visit. The Berryman's did a great job providing all the necessary info needed for our stay. The Villa was absolutely beautiful!! Very clean, furnished beautifully inside/out, fantastic view of the lake and plenty of other amenities. Really liked having VIP Marina pick us up at Northshore whenever we decided to rent a boat.

We will definitely be back next year!!!

Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Five high school girlfriends joined me for a mini reunion. It was the perfect place. The panoramic view from the deck took our breath away! The three bedroom condo was well appointed and comfortable. The balcony faces west so we had coffee time in the morning before it got too hot - August in Texas, after all! - and then sat out again in the evening when there was a breeze. We hung out by the pool and ate at the Beach Club at The Hollows. Food and service were so good that we chose pool time rather than going into nearby towns. The condo was clean and prepared for us when we arrived. Our hostess communicated well; instructions and directions were clear. It was more than enough space for the six of us. The only suggestion we could make is maybe a fan on the balcony so we could extend our time looking at beautiful Lake Travis. If you're planning a trip to the North Shore of Lake Travis, you should stay here. We plan to stay again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! We are glad you had a nice weekend with friends at our Villa and enjoyed all the Hollows amenities. We will definitely look into adding a fan to the patio for those hot August days . Our patio faces Southeast so while we do get a little sun in the mornings, it does stay shaded from noon throughout the rest of the day making it the perfect place to enjoy the lake views. We hope to have you as a guest again in the future!
