VRBO Bear stayed here: We found this property to be beary special
Enjoy your Lakefront retreat, get away or special event watching breathtaking sunsets over the panoramic view of Lake Travis, at a privately owned and managed almost 4,000 square foot Tuscan home. This majestic 2009 home is nestled at the end of a Private Cove perfect for swimming and exploring caves, with access to the main body of Lake Travis. Enjoy water sports from your private boat dock as well as watching nature unfold before your eyes.
Guests enjoy a master suite/spa with a walk-in travertine shower and oversized bathtub. The fully equipped gourmet kitchen, adjacent to the luxurious family room overlooking the Lake, is a cook's dream. Provided is everything you need to prepare delicious meals, as well as a full set of dishes and utensils. Cooks don't miss the action with a grill right on the deck! Above the deck on the second story, there is another veranda or balcony as large as the deck below it. Both overlook the lake and a great fenced-in lawn that's perfect for kids and pets.. There is great dining room seating as well as a lot of tables and chairs to sit down for nice meals both inside and out. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the 70' HDTV located in the media room, games, wireless capability for your computer, a MAN CAVE outfitted with a 50' TV, WII, couch and chairs, as well as music with stereo feeds and surround sound on 29 speakers throughout the house and verandas.
Built with discriminating taste as well as professionally decorated, the house has travertine floors downstairs and on the 1500 square foot verandas, custom tile work makes all the niches and showers beautiful art pieces, knotty alder is featured on the massive doors and beautiful cabinetry as well as granite on all the counters. One of the upstairs bedrooms opens to its own Juliet balcony as well as boasting its own mini kitchen equipped with a small refrigerator and microwave. For your convenience the house is equipped with a large capacity, front loader washer and dryer.
Less than ten minutes drive, this private retreat is convenient to CVS Pharmacy, grocery store, video rentals and local restaurants. Austin, the live music capitol of the world, is a short 45 minute drive. Lago Vista is the gateway to Hill Country destinations such as Marble Falls (30 minutes), Johnson City, and Fredricksburg. This quite natural setting is wonderful for walking and biking while observing wild-life in its natural setting. While you are enjoying your vacation with family and friends please be mindful that we live in a neighborhood that we love our neighbors so please do not go to their yards or their boat docks. Also available for rent is a 15 passenger 'San-Pan' luxury pontoon.
The home is incredibly gorgeous, with a large, open floor plan and well-considered details from marble counter tops and stainless steel appliances to gorgeous fixtures and lighting. Two large patios spanning the back of the house made the perfect place to unwind with a glass of wine in the cool evening air.
As the inner-most property on a short cove, the house has the best of both worlds – a sweeping view of the water as well as a near-private swimming area where the cove ends into a fabulous grotto, isolated from the main lake traffic. November weather is a bit chilly for swimming, but you could imagine floating in the grotto in warmer months, perfect for the young cubs. A rare find on Lake Travis, there was a large flat lawn perfect for running and tossing a ball or Frisbee but also safely surrounded by a beautiful iron fence to keep kids and pets from getting too close to the water.
Sleeping arrangements were easy. Each bedroom has its own bathroom so even 3 couples with kids are able to manage showers. An array of quality, inflatable mattresses and blankets makes tucking the kids away a no-brainer.
In my group, kids and adults were entertained all weekend. Our choices suited all ages ranging from: Wii games and ping pong in a true “man cave,” wide selection of DVDs and satellite TV in the media room, foosball, board games and a closet full of toys and dolls for the little ones!
Last but not least, one of our absolute favorite features was the surround sound in every room of the house. You could turn the music on or off in each room. The kids could nap or watch TV while the adults listened to music.
I highly recommend this house for families, reunions, and other groups looking to relax and reconnect.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: My husband and I love the Lake, particularly Lake Travis located in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. In 2009 we had a dream come true when we moved into our dream home located on the Lake. Every night as we sit on the veranda eating our dinner and watching the sunset we reflect on how fortunate we are to live in a 'resort'. We would love to have you experience what we have experienced for over a year and enjoy a vacation on the shores of Lake Travis. It is our hope you love it as much as we do and want to return every year.
Why the Owner Chose Lago Vista: We bought this location because of the easy access to the Lake. The Lake sits in our back-yard. We are located on a private cove that is perfect for swimming, cave exploring and cliff climbing. The beauty of the Lake, surrounding cliffs and nature cannot be found in any other location.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Boating, water-sports, a grass field for outdoor activities.
