Welcome to the Travis Lakeview Villa, a premier Austin destination vacation rental. We are committed to providing you and your guests a four-star experience in one of the best homes on Lake Travis.
Here is just a taste of what to expect.
The first thing you’ll notice as you drive up is the ample park, the woods, and a beautiful tuscan gate surrounded by beautiful landscaping and stonework. As you open this gate, you hear two waterfalls reminiscent of a babbling brook. Following that soothing sound, your eyes are drawn to a pond at the base. Brightly colored fish dart about, and if you look carefully, you will see two water turtles poking their heads out of the clear water, wondering if you are going to feed them. As you gaze around, you see beauty everywhere. Immaculately landscaped, colors delight you and the cozy pergola is inviting. You start to relax, feeling like you have come to a resort. You have.
As you walk up to this three-story, Italian-style stucco villa, you have entered a world carefully crafted for maximum relaxation and enjoyment. The stress of a busy world begins slipping away as you stroll into this Tuscan garden everywhere you look there are walls of star jasmine which, when in bloom, produce an amazing, sweet aroma. Throughout this intimate, cozy space there are places for couples and friends to sit, chat, and unwind.
Although your private courtyard beckons you to stay, the 10-foot-high glass front door opens to a designer-appointed, yet comfortable home. As you cross the threshold, you see Lake Travis and rolling hills of the renowned Texas hill country.
Walking straight through the house, you step through french doors to a large tiled deck overlooking the widest part of Lake Travis. To your right is an elegant table with seating for 14, and stainless gas BBQ grill up for the task of a party many times that size.
Back inside, gleaming hardwood floors and 30-foot-high ceilings welcome you. Travertine, granite, and wood have been crafted together in one unified design, a tribute to the laborers behind it—master craftsmen, passionate about their art. Over the years, dozens of artists have left their mark on these walls. No place remains untouched by their hands. This shows in every detail, everywhere you look. Original tuscan art painted by famous artists on walls leaves a permanent mark fitting to multi-million dollar resorts many times the size of this 3,500 square foot Tuscan villa.
Drawn into the equipped kitchen, you cannot help but admire the intricate stonework.
Peering over the safety railings, you see a carefully-landscaped yard, with roses, hibiscus, magnolias, and more. In every direction there is something interesting to see. An authentic, old-world Tuscan clay roof provides shade for those exiting the gym, a expertly-maintained hot tub, and more. A fire pit (being installed late Spring 2015) is surrounded by 14 best-of-class lounging chairs. Ready for roasting marshmallows?
As you look up from the yard, you are delighted by the grandeur. Four separate decks for gathering provide a variety of environments. Romance. Families just lounging. An outdoor meal for everyone, or closing out the day with friends while watching breathtaking moon rises. Or, grabbing a cup of Starbucks from your in-room coffee maker, you may want to get up early and watch some of the amazing sunrises you have ever seen.
The hills on which this hideaway is perched is known for its delightful cross-winds, which makes your time on your adjacent-room balconies much more tolerable even in the heat of our August temperatures.
Sunrises, moonrises, famous Texas Hill Country views – all from beautifully tiled decks of travertine or slate. Consistently, the sunrises are intensely colorful and enchanting, as you are in one of the highest spots along Lake Travis, looking down at the valley below. Most of the suites, as well as the living areas of the home, highlight this view through large windows everywhere.
As you unpack, you notice every imaginable convenience typical of a four-star resort. Every one of the Villa’s eight beds is a high-quality mattress with 1,000 thread-count sheets, down pillows, and other pillow styles to suit your taste. Each room has a unique flair, something interesting, something special. Each space provides a different experience, and a tour of seven bedrooms will have you wanting to try out each one. You may have a tough time deciding which one to take. That is, unless you have dibs on one of the two master suites with private baths!
Quietly, behind the scenes, sophisticated technology provides the recent of technology for high-speed WiFi, high definition television, blue-ray DVD players, and a 5-channel surround sound theater room-style system, and one 7-channel with a 64-inch screen. New, in-room refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee makers are tucked in closets, maintaining the quaint ambiance of your private room. As you open your personal refrigerator, your are surprised by its size, the fact it has ice, and even more so – it is stocked. Filled with all kinds of drinks, you are set. Make popcorn, grab a drink, download a movie, or watch a DVD – all without leaving your room. If you did not bring one, you will find numbers of DVDs in excellent condition throughout the house.
On the typical resort convenience side, there are new irons, ironing boards, and all the other things you would expect. Unopened soap, shampoo, conditioner and more make you feel this is truly your place. And the weekly maid service, groundskeeper, and always-available handy man ensure that no matter how long you stay, you don’t have to worry about a thing. This well-served environment has all you need to do is lie back, relax, and enjoy! Close to Lake Travis, and downtown Austin, this luxurious hideaway is the perfect choice for anyone with refined taste.

We used this property for our annual staff offsite meeting and it was fantastic! The beds were all very comfortable, and the large number of rooms and bathrooms was perfect for us to spread out. The back deck was perfect for a sunset dinner and we loved bonding around the fire pit at night. The house has great amenities and it was a lot of fun to be able to stay together in one space versus separate hotel rooms. The only drawback was the lack of parking and the grouchy neighbors who clearly do not like that this home is a vacation rental. This would be a perfect house for multiple families, large groups, girls getaway weekend, etc and we would most definitely stay here again. The property managers were a delight to work with and very accommodating.
The house was very nice, we really enjoyed our stay there. The view was awesome. Just wish the weather had been nicer so that we could enjoy the outside.
We are sorry the weather was not in your favor during your visit, and hope that the next time your in Austin you have perfect weather.
The home was beautiful and was a perfect fit for a big group. Thanks for everything!
We rented this home for a special family event and we couldn't have been happier. The house was even more beautiful than it was in the photos. The fire pit in the backyard gave us a magnificent opportunity to all sit together - share memories, toasts, and just enjoy the beauty that surrounded us. We woke Sunday morning to the most beautiful sunrise. We all sat and enjoyed coffee at the large table on the back deck. This house was magical and we will be coming back!
This home was everything we had hoped for and more! The beautifully landscaped gated front entry was the perfect place for morning coffee and butterflies, and the views from the back decks over looking Lake Travis were phenomenal! The main back deck was large enough to accommodate our entire group of 17 guests comfortably to take in the cool evening breezes of Lake Country. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed to cook delicious meals, and every bedroom had comfortable beds. The property has such a convenient location being just about a 5 minute drive from the lake, we will definitely be coming back!
We had a fabulous time at the Villa, which we rented for a girl's weekend. The home had everything we needed (or wanted) and was beautiful. It was perfect for our group. The property manager made sure we had everything we needed and was extremely responsive. In addition, the information provided by the property manager prior to the stay was very helpful and informative. The rooms were comfortable and the view when you walk into the home is amazing. It was only a short drive to downtown Austin, and there is ample shopping activities in the surrounding areas. I would recommend this home to others and hope to use it again in the future.
I decided to rent this property to celebrate my wife's birthday with some close friends. Upon arrival, you enter a gated courtyard. Comically, all of the ladies were asking for a rose -- they said that the courtyard looks very similar to the one used on tbe TV show The Bachelor.
When they entered, everyone was impressed with the decor, cleanliness, and most of all -- the spectacular view. There was large table in tbe backyard along with a gaint circular seating arrangement at the bottom level of the backyard. Everything was conducive for great socializing.
Within close driving distance is Lake Travis, an endless supply of wineries, water holes, distilleries, and activities. We primarily used the property in the evenings and nights -- and had plenty of exploration options during the day.
There were zero gripes with this property. During our stay, I texted tbe property manager with a few questions. He answered back IMMEDIATELY. He also offered to come onsite if needed, which we did not need.
The level of attentiveness was impressive. Not only would I recommend this place to others, but I would definitely use it again myself.
We had a wonderful time the home was lovely it accommodated us all and is perfect for family gatherings it's been updated as well I would love to make this a yearly vacation home oh yea and the view was amazing
Thanks to the property manager at Tuscan Villa. They made sure we had everything we needed for our retreat. The service was excellent. The house is spacious and worked well for our company retreat. The rooms were comfortable and the house well equipped. I would recommend this location and hope to use the house again for future meetings.
This house was perfect for celebrating my husbands 40th birthday with our friends! The house was lovely, but the large porch outside was everyone's favorite! Super close to the lake which was very convenient. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
