Three wrap-around decks, one 2000sq ft deck & three covered decks provide wonderful seating and flow for entertaining. The two-story entry with grand staircase, the warmth of the wood and the buff wall colorings are quite impressive and most welcoming.

There is also a crib and changing table in the second bedroom next to the playroom. There is also a stroller in the garage.

• Two separate apartments are downstairs off either side of the 7-car garage each with a bedroom, full bathroom and kitchen. There is a six person poker table w chips in the living room on the larger of the two apartments.

• The layout of the home is grand, flowing and conducive to socializing.

All this and only a 10 minute drive to downtown Austin door-to-door.

Reviews

A restful relaxing place for everyone!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 2, 2014

From the moment you walk in the door of this palace and take your first glimpse of the breathtaking view, you have the distinct impression that you are now Master of the Texas Hill Country. When it was built, it was the home with the highest elevation in all of Austin and there is no doubt that this point of pride permeates the mansion and everyone who is lucky enough to stay in it. When we arranged a friend reunion, we had no idea that such a perfect location was within our reach. Ryan, playing the role of owner-extraordinaire, was more than accommodating, communicative and genuinely welcoming to me and my friends. Having friends in from all over the country with age ranges from 1-70 years, everyone felt at home. There was enough room for everyone to sit, eat, chat, play and relax. The kids had a blast playing in the overwhelmingly well stocked play room (puppet show, anyone?) The ping pong table was a big hit and the large natural gas grill kept our bellies full! The huge hot tub and plush patio furniture kept everyone relaxed while enjoying the indescribable Texas sunset. Exploring and enjoying the innumerable amenities made for a treasure hunt of delight. There was something amazing to experience in every inch of this well cared for and surprisingly accessible home. Overnight accommodations were comfortably spaced for each family to relax and the living, dining and play areas made for great fellowship among the large group. This gorgeous and refined estate is without a doubt exactly where you want to stay with your family and friends on your next trip to Austin.

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing in almost every way; comfortable, convenient, etc.

Everything worked very well and the house was very clean and neat; didn't have odd smells or furniture like some vacation rentals do.

The house isn't in the heart of Austin but it was very and easy and fast to get anywhere in the Austin area.

Ryan is extremely nice, helpful, and available. He let us check in early and check out late.

Would highly recommend this house for any trip you have planned to Austin.

Awesome Austin Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the mansion for my extended family to stay during my daughter's wedding on Apr 29th. This mountain top mansion is very spacious with lot of beds and amenities. I must say that Ryan is a man of his word. Just trust him and he will deliver. He is extremely easy to reach and get a response quickly, compared to some others. I wish I stayed there couple of extra days after the wedding to fully enjoy the beautiful view from the balconies! We didn't have bath tissues in all bathrooms and Ryan immediately sent the property manager with plenty of tissues to refill.

Amazing home, perfect Austin experience

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect way to experience Austin. The views were simply amazing, and Ryan was a fantastic host.

We really enjoyed all the space the home provided (plenty of beds, areas to cook, relax, etc), and the home was in pristine condition upon our arrival.

Would definitely recommend!

Map

Boating on Lake Austin: An added bonus is the dock at Pennybacker bridge is only 3minutes away (.5 miles) from the house. You can pick everyone up at the bridge docking station (there is parking there too).
