One bedroom, one bath luxury villa on a private island on Lake Travis. Lake and marina views from the condominium and balcony. There is a king size bed in bedroom and queen size sleeper sofa in living room. The bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower.

The resort has two lovely outdoor swimming pools and hot tubs overlooking the lake, beautiful indoor pool and hot tub, huge workout center, tennis courts (we supply you four racquets w/balls), full service Island Spa.

There is an on-site marina and boat ramp to provide easy access to boating, jet skiing and sailing. The property has a gated entrance with beautiful courtyards.

About Mark Reis

We bought this vacation rental for ourselves but started renting it to others while not using it. It became so popular we got another. We live in North Austin moved from the Los Angeles area in 2005. We really like the smaller town feel the Austin area offers. We opened a wine bar in Round Rock just north of Austin in 2012.

Mark Reis purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mark Reis chose Lago Vista

We just loved the Island when we first came to it because it's such a unique spot. It was built in the Mediterranean style.

What makes this condo unique

The wonerful views give a relaxing feeling along with the ability to cook with a full kitchen and the on site charcoal grills that make your food taste the way I remember it as a kid.

Wonderful getaway

  • 4 of 5

As stated by others condo was as pictured. The area was beautiful and peaceful. We were there Tuesday-Friday so not very crowded which was nice. We stopped at HEB on 1431on way to resort but Loews market is much closer. Enjoyed everything but a couple of personal observations-darker window coverings in bedroom for sleeping in a little because windows face east. Also couldn't figure out how to turn bedroom lights off while leaving fan on. Could definitely hear people above us walking so if you are a light sleeper might bring ear plugs. Bed was a little hard since we are used to temperpedic but not bad. DVD player connection is component button on remote not AV as stated in book. Could use a pitcher for tea in kitchen. Not complaining at all just helpful (hopefully) thoughts. Oh and when you leave each time be sure to push the lock button on keypad. Gnarly Gars is a neat place to eat-a beautiful drive about 20 minutes away. Would definitely go back.

Very relaxing family get away July '17

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean condo as seen in pictures. Owner was quick to send all necessary info to access property, and provided thorough instructions/info for electronics, property amenities, nearby dining and attractions, etc. I had seen reviews for this particular island complaining of a dirty/smelly parking garage and they are nit-picky and overblown. If you are looking to vacation in a parking garage I suppose you can find better, otherwise you will love this condo, property, pools, views, etc. We'll be back!

Excellent! Quiet & relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is very quiet (I've never slept better) and so well maintained. We were amazed by the property's total appearance when we drove up. The "villa" that we were staying in was very clean, comfortable and has a good view of the water. (The pictures that the owner has posted are very accurate) This place has 2 pools, a nice gym to work out and an on sight restaurant. You also get your own parking spot which appears to be very strictly enforced. (This was one of the better experiences the wife and I have had in a while.)

The only minor draw-back (make that a very minor) to staying here is, there are stores (HEB, Target, restaurants, etc.) in the vicinity, but, they are approx. 20 minutes away.

Perfect.... Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The Island on Lake Travis is stunning. Our condo was beautiful. Deer grazing at 6 pm and almost eating from your hand. 3 beautiful pools. Great views, wonderful people. Very tranquil. Made our 35th wedding anniversary perfect.
