Beautiful and Peaceful Lake Travis Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My mom, daughter and I recently had the privilege of staying in this beautiful villa for a girls weekend to Lake Travis. We cannot say enough good things about this location. The villa was apart of the stunning Island community on Lake Travis. The villa it's self is in a prime location, overlooking Lake Travis. It was spacious enough for the 3 of us. My mom took the master bedroom and said the bed was very comfortable. My daughter and I slept on the pull out couch, which was perfectly comfortable. It had a spacious bathroom and kitchen for our weekend there. Nicole and Paul were wonderful hosts and left us with plenty of towels, bedding, kitchen supplies, and any other basic necessity you may need for a weekend away from home (they were even very thoughtful and left bubbles for our daughter to play with). We enjoyed time at the community pool (which overlooks Lake Travis) and our daughter thoroughly enjoyed playing in the pool. It was so beautiful to sit out on the patio at night and watch the sun set. The location was so peaceful yet you're still close to all the big city stuff (Austin, Round Rock, etc.). I cannot say enough good things about this villa! We most definitely will be back in the near future!

The unit was very nice and had everything we needed. There were some great little touches like chocolate and coffee as well as a few breakfast items. The view from the bedroom is spectacular and the outside balcony is comfortable and relaxing. Great place to spend the weekend!

The unit was beautiful and very nicely furnished. The view of the lake from the bedroom and patio was stunning. The owner, Nicole, was helpful and available but not intrusive. It was a very enjoyable stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay. The apartment was very clean, well equipped and exactly as advertised. Nicole’s welcome basket was a lovely touch and very much appreciated. The complex is quiet and grounds and pool very well maintained.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is gorgeous and the room is very nice. We really appreciated all of the amenities provided. Lots of nice touches. The island is full of deer that are very tame and the deer corn in the room was a nice surprise. The geothermal activity does produce a sulfur smell when the wind is just right (wrong) but it didn't really detract from the stay. We will definitely be coming back.
