Mardi Gras Estate

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 4.5 baths
Wrought-iron railings, a burbling fountain, and a courtyard with a Mardi Gras tree lend a little Southern charm to this hilltop estate close to Lake Austin. Alfresco living areas with plenty of seating in the shade, along with several indoor sitting rooms, only add to the inviting, stay-a-while ambience. Bring the boat to the Lake Austin ramp 6.5 miles away and hike nearby Mount Bonnell for views. 
Spend sunny days splashing in the swimming pool and hot tub, shooting 3-pointers around the basketball hoop, or stretching out on a lounger while the kids play tag on the lawn. In the evenings, have dinner from the barbecue at the alfresco table, then linger around the outdoor fireplace, or gather around the satellite TV and Wi-Fi indoors. 
The homeowner’s New Orleans heritage shows up in wrought-iron details and massive wooden pieces in the formal living room and an open-concept family room with a sitting area, dining table, and fully equipped kitchen. High, wood-beamed ceilings and stone floors add a touch of the European country estate as well. 
This vacation rental has 1 master bedroom with a king bed and private ensuite bathroom, and 4 bedrooms with queen beds: 1 with an ensuite bathroom, 1 with access to a hall bathroom, and 2 that share a Jack-and-Jill-style bathroom. For groups on holiday with a pack of cousins, there’s an extra bedroom with 6 twin beds and access to a hall bathroom. 
It’s 6.5 miles from this luxury property to Lake Austin, where you can spend the day on the water and finish with a honeymoon-worthy dinner at a lantern-lit waterfront restaurant. Drive 14 miles to downtown Austin for a tour of the Texas State Capitol building, a wander through the museums and galleries, and an evening at a concert or a bungalow turned bar.
