About the property

Tucked on a lakefront family vineyard, this 2BR villa in Hill Country offers lake views from an open concept gathering space and large deck. Launch into Lake Travis from the onsite boat dock or drive 45 minutes to explore downtown Austin.

Booked on your dates? Looking for more space? Check out our sister property, Chardonnay Haus at VRBO #353360.

ABOUT THE HOUSE

Bask in sunshine and lake views in the open concept gathering space, where tall picture windows bring the outside in, elegant hardwood floors add style, and vaulted ceilings create a sense of airiness.

Unwind in comfortable sofa and chair seating in the living room, where a flat screen TV is equipped with DirecTV and a DVD player—bring your favorite flick or choose from our selection.

Adjacent, the sunny dining space has room for 6 around a wood table. There’s seating for 2 at the breakfast bar—uncork a bottle of wine while dinner simmers.

Outfitted with stainless steel appliances and wood cabinetry, the kitchen is designed to keep the chef in tune with conversation. There’s no oven here, but we provide a convection over for your convenience.

Get some fresh air on the lake-view deck, where you can sit down for meals at the dining table for 7 or sip your morning coffee in a quiet lounge area.

Down the hallway, you’ll find both bedrooms and a shared bath with stone-tiled standing shower. The queen-size master bedroom is furnished with a stately dark wood dresser, and the 2nd bedroom features 2 twin-size beds.

THE LOCATION

There’s plenty of ways to spend the day without even leaving your Hill Country rental. Wander between rows of grapes in the vineyard, or cool off on the lake by boating, jet skiing, sailing or just floating the afternoon away. We are on one of the deepest coves of Lake Travis—the water is currently 45-feet deep below our boat dock.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, drive 13 minutes to Gnarly Gar, a floating restaurant where you can feed the fish while enjoying mouthwatering burgers and tacos. Fuel up in the morning with breakfast tacos at Deedee’s, a 7-minute drive away.

Head to Marble Falls to pick up a bottle of wine at Flat Creek Estate (15 minutes by car), or a bundle of berries at pick-your-own Sweet Berry Farms (a 30-minute drive away).

If you’re looking for something a little more high energy, downtown Austin is just a 45-minute drive from your rental. Taste test your way around well-regarded bars and restaurants, catch a set or two of live music, and be sure to visit the historic Texas Capitol.

Beautiful views & property

  • 4 of 5

Went for a girls' weekend and it was perfect for 2 of us. It would be cozy with 4 non-family members (a queen and 2 bunkbeds) but great for 4 family members. It is a duplex with another unit sharing the beautiful deck that's divided with wall but not absolutely private.

It's as pictured - nice, fairly new and clean with almost everything you need. Had basic pots, pans, dishes but if you're cooking anything elaborate might want to re-consider - otherwise it's just fine. No coffee filters, coffee or sweetners though so bring your own. Wi-Fi kept disconnecting but was kinda nice to not be too connected - AT&T worked fine.

The grounds are stunning as it sits up on a cliff with a new vineyard growing. Property well maintained except for stairs leading down to dock which we decided was too treacherous to go all the way down to the lake. It's mostly due to weathering and the fact the lake has been super low for so long. Just don't count on entering the lake via this dock until the lake levels rise significantly. Would be wonderful if this unit came with access to the local homeowners association parks - 12 for the area with boat ramps, playgrounds and one with a pool - but understand that's probably realistic. We met someone who gave us a pass and loved Bar K Ranch park's pool since we didn't go boating.

We had breakfast tacos from DeeDees (pretty good), coffee at Latte Vista (excellent), dinner at Haven on the Island (mediocre but fantastic views and sunset) and food highlight was lunch at Flat Creek Winery (delicious, decent wine and amazing setting). Lago Vista doesn't have much as far as restaurants but we were here to relax and get away.

Overall we were very happy with this property!

Perfect Location with a Dock

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this condo on Lake Travis! It's tucked away in a calm cove with a private dock that was great for hanging out, swimming, and for docking our ski boat over the weekend. The views were great, the condo was spotless, and the owners were very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Reviewer Comments:

This one is tough for me to describe. I want to be happy with it, but there was some info lacking in the description that would have made it perfect. We brought our 22' boat from Colorado and did some lake hopping in Texas. This property, although stunning in location, is difficult to get a boat into. I actually called about this before we came, but because Turnkey is located in 3 different states, they could only give me the info provided on the listing. The 2nd problem was that although it is advertised as having its own dock, the closest "public" boat ramp was quite far! And be aware- the dock was a blast, but very old and in need of some repairs. The house itself was very nice, and the views and the vineyard were stunning. The only thing lacking in the house was the "starter kit" that I never did see, and the fact that they desperately need new towels...

Girls Weekend on Lake Travis

  • 4 of 5

The Shiraz house was a perfect choice for our girls getaway weekend. The villa was clean and beautifully maintained. The furnishings were actually nicer than the online photos. The directions were great, and the management company was very responsive the one time I called. My only slight issue is that the 'starter supplies' were a little skimpy. No dishwasher detergent and about an inch of dishwasher liquid. Overall, we loved it fir the view and the quiet place to visit and wind down.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 day stay at the Shiraz Haus was nothing short of amazing. It was exactly the type of getaway experience we were looking for, completely secluded and wonderful views. Villa was clean from top to bottom. Directions were easy to follow and everything in the villa worked as described. We would definitely love to visit again.
