About the property

1 Bed 1 1/2 Bath Fully Updated, Amazing Views, Spacious Patio & Gorgeous Decor

Enjoy the Cove, the Lake and the Gorgeous Hill country views all from one spot. This elegant, spacious and well-equipped Villa gives a you an incredible spot to refresh and recharge. Resort-like amenities offer you a top notch experience. Use our guidebook to help you explore all that North Lake Travis & the Hill Country have to offer. Enjoy peace, quiet and amenities galore here at the Casita on the Cove!

***Please note as of mid July '18 we are experiencing drought conditions in Central TX.***The Cove that this Villa overlooks has lost water at very high rate this month and is no longer full. Some interior photos on this listing are of a full Cove. Views are still lovely, etc. but those water views are now reduced. Please see photos. I have lowered my nightly price in Aug and Sept to reflect that the views are now somewhat compromised...the deep Lake side is still plenty full of water***

Here at the Casita you will find a spacious and bright 1 bedroom, 1 1/2 bathroom villa that comes equipped with a large screen TV and WIFI. In addition you will find a large DVD library along with board games, puzzles, books and magazines. The large layout of this villa is perfect for couples get-away but can easily accommodate a small family or group of 3 to 4 adults. Modern kitchen has all the basics you could need...including complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

Washer/ Dryer in the unit.

Master bedroom is furnished with a comfy king sized bed. We also offer a premium quick auto inflate/deflate queen sized pillowtop air mattress for add'l guests. For your comfort, there is a large breakfast nook overlooking the Cove. Or, take your relaxation out into two different patio spaces. The smaller Cove side patio offers a beautiful view of the Cove area. The larger side patio offers a peek-a-boo view of Lake Travis!

You will find we have equipped our space with lots of extras...pool towels, fishing poles, tennis racquets, etc!

There is also a small canister propane grill on our patio for your convenience! There are shared communal charcoal grills. Guests provide their own propane for patio grill and/or charcoal for communal grill.

You have access to all the wonderful amenities the Island of Lake Travis has to offer...pools, gym, spa/sauna, wildlife, tennis and so much more. You can also contact local vendors for kayaks, SUP, pontoon and speed boat rentals, etc. Be as busy or as relaxed as you truly can do it all at the Island! We host 3 incredible Villas at the Island...all of similar quality and price point... If this one is booked for your dates please inquire about our other options!

***You must declare additional guests during the reservation process or notify me in advance if you would like to add additional guests. Extra towels, linens, air mattress, etc. are only left on site for paid extra guests. The extra booking fee ($10 per person, per night) is a nominal amount and covers for extra wear and tear on the Villa and laundering of linens. If you are found to have unpaid extra guests onsite you risk your security deposit. No exceptions***

About Nicole

We live here locally in Austin and consider the Island our second home. We are often onsite staying in one of our Villas. We have two teenage boys and we love to hike, kayak, boat and just have a great time on the Lake!

Nicole purchased this villa in 2015

Why Nicole chose Highland Lake Estates

This was our first property at the Island. We call this Villa our 'Zen' Villa...very chill, peaceful and quiet. We fell in love with the spacious layout and the gorgeous Cove & Hill Country views!!!

What makes this villa unique

Star gazing at night from the patio...watching the deer gather below the patio in the mornings and late afternoons...such a treat!!!

Nice View & Clean!

  • 4 of 5

Nicole & Paul,

Thank you for the welcoming yummy treats! Place was clean and neat when we arrived. Thank you for the comfortable bed. We stayed for 2 weeks to check out other nearby cities for potential retirement. We did enjoyed most areas we visited, but 2 weeks was a bit long. We are thinking maybe to visit during the spring and winter down the road.

Little shocked with deers surrounding the condo, but they were very friendly.

Ivan & Van

Beautiful VRBO Experience

  • 5 of 5

I booked this unit of Nicole's for my father over Memorial Day Weekend. From the first contact with Nicole we were treated in the most professional manner possible. She allowed me to tour her 3 units, each with a different theme before choosing the perfect one for my father. The interiors are bright and attractive. Comfortable couches, chairs, and beds. It was spacious enough for my family to pop over for a relaxing visit inside and outside on the patio. Lots of little touches made my father feel welcome including a notebook of places to visit, a library of books and movies, a stocked kitchen with the basics and fresh eggs in the fridge were a nice surprise! The property is nestled in a beautiful garden setting with breathtaking views of Lake Travis and on-site swimming pools. The workout facilities were lovely too. Overall experience was a 5 star! We will definitely return to book our family at any one of Nicole's lovely units!
