Welcome to Bee Cave

Beautiful scenery, small-town ambiance, and big-city amenities in perfect balance

Just a quick and scenic drive west from Downtown Austin sits a sprawling gem of Hill Country beauty known as Bee Cave, Texas. This prosperous and gorgeous Austin suburb was originally given its name in the late 1850s by settlers who found a vast cave in the area populated by colonies of Mexican honeybees. Today, the city’s 12 square miles are populated by affluent and exclusive communities and subdivisions of tightly-knit residents—among them are The Uplands and Ladera, along with neighboring Spanish Oaks and Lake Pointe. Though Bee Cave retains much of the small-town ambiance and Instagram-worthy natural beauty it’s rooted in, residents also enjoy big-city benefits without the hassle of having to live in one.

Bee Cave is conveniently located just off Highway 71, giving residents quick and easy access to both Downtown Austin and the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. In recent years, this fast-growing city has seen a significant number of new housing developments—some of which are the most expensive in the country—offering luxury homebuyers a wide variety to choose from. Bee Cave is an architectural blend of old-country and modern contemporary styles, from older ranch-style homes with breathtaking views to gorgeous custom-designed estates nestled within master-planned, gated communities. In addition, Bee Cave’s Hill Country Galleria boasts a stunning selection of high-end condominiums.

Maudie’s Hill Country has been serving tried-and-true Tex-Mex favorites and reliably potent margaritas for over two decades. Tucked within the Shops at the Galleria complex, this family staple neighborhood restaurant hand-prepares each dish of flavorful Tex-Mex cuisine with a dash of the homestyle-cooking heart its original namesake owner made famous for generations.

The Sonesta Bee Cave Hotel is a chic, modern boutique hotel as charming as the city itself. Meridian 98, the hotel’s polished rooftop lounge and open-air dining terrace, offers a lovely dining experience while enjoying the Bee Cave’s countryside landscape.
