About Lana Bernberg

We are a family of four originally from California. We have two young daughters so lots of toys and books for little ones. We adore our home and enjoy dinner parties, backyard BBQ's and swim parties. We hope you'll enjoy our love-filled home as much as we do!

Lana Bernberg purchased this house in 2014

Why Lana Bernberg chose Austin

Just 18 minutes from the heart of downtown, we adore all the space we get here on our 1/2 acre parcel. Being ex-city people, being able to spread out, cook in a large kitchen, lounge in the hammock or take an outdoor hike make it worth the short drive to some of the countries best food and music.

What makes this house unique

We feel like we get the best of everything Austin has to offer with our location. We're half way between tons of outdoor activities like Hamilton Pools and the amazing Common's Ford Park (just 5 mins away). You get the space of the country but easy access to great restaurants and festivals offered downtown!

Perfect family retreat in Austin area.

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed home was the perfect retreat for our family get together in Austin and looks exactly like the photos. The home was spacious with a terrific layout for our family group of eight people. The home was perfectly clean, the furnishings comfortable and relaxing and the kitchen was great for cooking and enjoying family meals. The spacious yard and property are perfect for relaxing outdoors and cooling off in the pool. Our children ages 10, 8 and 4 particularly loved the tree house. The location is a 20 or so minute drive to downtown Austin and grocery shopping is within 5 miles. We also appreciated the Instacart grocery service that delivered groceries shortly after our arrival for a reasonable fee. Would definitely recommend this property and will rent again if returning to this the area.

We had a wonderful time! We are a group of friends and the associated children who get together annually and have been using vrbo since 2009. This is the most beautiful home we have rented to date and we had a wonderful experience! It is great for us as adults and amazing for children with the pool, trampoline, tree house and toys!!! I would highly recommend it!

We had such a wonderful girls' weekend at this house! There was more than enough space for all six of us, and the house had all the amenities we needed. We would all love to stay here again!

Modern and comfortable home in the hills

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough great things about our weekend staying at this home. It was perfect for our girls weekend and the owners of the home are so nice! We spent a lot of time in the pool and loved the backyard! We had a private chef join us one evening and the kitchen was just perfect for him while he cooked. The home came with all the kitchen supplies needed, fresh towels and stocked bathrooms. The home has 3.5 bathrooms which was nice because we never felt like we were cramped for space. Although we did not have any children with us this weekend, the home would totally accommodate a few kids. We loved this home for our girls weekend but it would also be a great space for a couples weekend.

We wanted to go into town one evening and it only took about 15-20 mins to get downtown. I personally liked that we got to drive though some gorgeous scenery to get to the home.

Thank you so much Natasha and Dario for letting us use your beautiful home!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Natasha and Dario's home by far exceeded our expectations. Natasha was fabulous with communication throughout the entire process and the house is absolutely flawless. We spent the majority of our time in the backyard and by the pool and we couldn't ask for a better place to catch up with old friends. The location was great as well about 20 mins to downtown and 20 mins to the lake. We all discussed wanting to stay here againow just absolutely loved it! Thank you for everything!
