DESCRIPTION--Probably the best feature of this home is its open main floor that includes the kitchen, dining room, entertaining area and family room. It allows for ease in gathering and enjoying each other's company while engaging in various activities.

Others would argue that the best feature is the expansive covered balcony providing an amazing place to hang out while watching gorgeous sunsets with deer walking between you and the lake. There is an outdoor fan to help create a cooler environment.

Of the four bunk beds, three have full size beds on the bottom bunk and twin size beds on the top. The fourth bunk bed has a queen size bed on the bottom bunk and a queen size bed as the top bunk. The bunk room is equipped with a Flat Screen T.V. & DVD player and its own Direct T.V. receiver. There are three bathrooms that include two upstairs and one downstairs. The master bathroom has a double vanity with very large walk in shower. The second bathroom is near the two guest rooms and has a walk-in ceramic tile shower. The third bathroom is located downstairs near the bunk room and has a walk-in shower.
LOCATION--This home is located in Lago Vista, which is surrounded by beautiful Texas Hill Country, 38 miles from Austin's downtown 6th Street, 53.5 miles from the Formula 1 Race Track (Elroy) and 47 miles from the Austin Bergstom International Airport. You will be close to Hill Country wine tasting or hiking as well as close enough to enjoy many activities in Austin.
SETTING--This home has a very quiet and scenic setting on Lake Travis. The large deck looks out to the high cliffs of Paleface Park (also called Pace Bend Park). With no homes or campers on the opposite side of the lake, sitting on the deck watching the sun set over the cliffs is breath-taking!
WATERFRONT--Located directly on deep water Lake Travis, Villa Soleil is a great location for all types of water sports. Even during the drought, the boat dock remained floating, and there was still great water. A local boat company will deliver a boat or other water craft to the dock with no delivery fee. With a gentle slope and a 5' wide concrete walkway from the home to the lake, there is very EASY ACCESS!!
BOAT DOCK--The boat dock is a single covered slip that will accommodate up to a 23' direct drive boat and two personal water crafts. The boat dock's electric lift has been updated with a new and improved cradle that will accommodate a direct drive or a V-Drive boat. There is also an electric lift for two personal water crafts. Bring your poles; the fishing is great right off of the dock!

The view on the lake is fantastic ! We had a wonderful stay at the house, which is in pristine condition with great amenities. It was perfect for our four families. The main room and terrace are very large and a perfect gathering place. The kitchen is very well equipped and perfect for catering to the needs of a large number of guests.
We highly recommend this place.
Perfection!! Nothing Less!!
Stunning View!!! Relaxation, peaceful, and just Perfect!!! The photos of this home, and the description, are accurate and true. The entire home, both indoors and outdoors, were immaculate. Our family had a FANTASTIC time and we ALL enjoyed this spacious well thought out floorplan. Everything we needed to prepare meals were available. Ample supplies for bathroom needs, dishwashing, and laundry. The beds and pillows were comfortable. Everyone commented repeatedly what a TREASURE I found!!! And I Agree!!
Also used the Grill on the deck for the old fashioned hamburgers & hotdogs. Yummy!
AC worked with no problem and all aspects of this beautiful home was in order and in good working condition.
Several of us fished off the dock ... and we ALL caught plenty of bass (catch & release). And, oh yes, one family member hooked "Big Mama" but, unfortunately, was unable to follow through pulling her up onto the dock for a photo. Some of us saw "Big Mama" on his line so we know she's there! We'll be back some time in the future to try and catch her again.
Deer Everywhere!!! Birds singing and fluttering about the backyard area. We also saw a Fox walk across the property.
We Loved It!!!
Beautiful house and views!!!
Perfect house for any occasion! Huge kitchen and great room!! Mornings and evenings are the best times to enjoy deck, but you will enjoy the house the whole time!! We didn’t need anything house fully furnished - you won’t be sorry 👍👍 We will be back!!
Open & Inviting
Great house for a big family/friends/reunion. Stayed here in April and the best feature is that the living/dining and kitchen are all in one space along with the entertainment (pool/table tennis/chess/foosball table), which kept the kids and adults all in one area hanging out. Lots of space for everyone to sleep in. The only downside was that the bunkbed room downstairs didn't have enough light in the room and felt very dark down there along with the bathroom. Even when opening up the blind, the room was dark.
Unfortunately for us the weather turned super cold, so we couldn't rent a boat, however the entertainment features in the house were good enough for us. Beds are all relatively comfortable, main floor bathrooms have all been updated with new tiling and features, which is great. The table and chairs downstairs had lots of pollen on it along with the flooring, so we didn't use it. The outdoor table upstairs is nice, however due to the cold weather we didn't eat outdoors. Note there are lots of gnats flying around at night and so hard to keep away when the door closes/opens - have to be careful. Overall a great property and I'd rent it again as they're fully stocked.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay at my house and appreciated all of the updates that I have recently done. I tried to think of everything, but obviously missed replacing the lights in the bunk room. As soon as I read your review, I ordered 3 floor lamps and will be taking them to the home as soon as they arrive. I appreciate knowing there was a problem, and if you had let me know while you were there, I would have personally brought some lamps out to you immediately. I would have also sent the cleaning crew to clean off the pollen. With the wind that we have had recently, it must have blown it in. I really care about my home and want all of my clients to have an extremely positive experience and be happy with choosing it for their vacation rental. I love it and want everyone to feel the same.
I am very sorry you did not have great weather. Hopefully, you will come back while the weather is better.

Beautiful property and home. Nice renovations and the views are killer. Highly recommend
Thank you for your nice comments and your recommendation! I am very happy you enjoy my home and all of the renovations. Please come back!!
Spacious and quiet spot nestled right along Lake Travis (Colorado River)
First I would like to thank the VRBO Agent, Kathi Miles, for being professional, courteous and responsive. She did a great job in making sure the transaction went smoothly. Secondly, I would like to thank Jacque Wittmuss, the property manager, who made sure that our stay was perfect. She was very responsive to our needs and questions about the property.
The property was very spacious and clean. It easily housed our family of 6 adults and 3 grandchildren. The view was great and and inviting. We used the boat dock to fish from. An added bonus was that there were many deer walking around that made it perfect for our grandchildren.
The Television was exceptionally large and good for family viewing. The wifi handled all without any buffering. The pool table/ tennis table was used by all. The kitchen and eating area were ideal for our family meals. And at night it was extremely quiet.
Jacque mentioned that the property is slated for a remodel and we would certainly be interested in going back for another stay at this great property. I have quite a few pictures but I do not see a place where I can submit or attach them.
Rocco, thank you very much for taking time the time to write this detailed review. We are so happy that you enjoyed this home and all of the amenities you mentioned. It was our pleasure to help you with your vacation, and we hope you will return after the remodel. It is an amazing home with the open floor plan but it is going to be even better. It will have granite counters, new cabinets, new tile, carpet, paint inside and out, new windows, etc. We would love to see your photos so please email them to us at our business email address if it isn't too much trouble. We look forward to working with you again.
This is a great area of Lake Travis! You NEVER have to worry about low water here!
