About the Owner

My husband and I love the Lake, particularly Lake Travis located in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. In 2009 we had a dream come true when we moved into our dream home located on the Lake. Every night as we sit on the veranda eating our dinner and watching the sunset we reflect on how fortunate we are to live in a 'resort'. We would love to have you experience what we have experienced for over a year and enjoy a vacation on the shores of Lake Travis. It is our hope you love it as much as we do and want to return every year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I were married at Villa Bella on November 3, 2012. The house and grounds are absolutely beautiful and are perfect for an outdoor wedding! We were married on the lawn, with a gorgeous lake view, with our closest friends and family and then dined outside under the stars. Villa Bella also has a large, outdoor, covered balcony which we used for the dance floor. A wonderful feature is the speaker system that projects music into every room and the outdoor balconies, with separate volume controls in each room. This allowed us to DJ our own wedding and avoid the cost of hiring someone and the unsightly speaker system they usually set up. The bar in the kitchen is perfect for serving cocktails and is where we had our bartender set up. Villa Bella was also perfect in that we could have our wedding party stay in the extra rooms upstairs! Donna was a pleasure to work with - she is exceptionally war and kind and is available to take early delivery of rentals like tables and chairs, etc. if needed. My husband and I knew the moment Donna opened her front door and smiled at us, that this is where we would get married! Thanks so much Donna for helping us to create the most perfect day!

Great overall stay

  • 5 of 5
I organized a bachelor party for a friend of mine in Austin and booked the Villa Bella. We were thoroughly pleased with the house on all accounts. The house is a bit far away from Austin, but it was exactly what we are looking for. It was very big and all of us slept almost comfortably (13 of us). I would say it would be ideal for 10 people, but we made it work.

The property was clean and tidy when we got there. The owner, Mohsen, was amazing. He had sent me everything I needed to know about a few weeks before and even let me contact him at any time during the stay. It was just such a seamless and easy experience. We even lost the keys in the end, and he still did not charge us. Any advice/rec I needed, he was able to provide right away.

The only thing I would have wished for is more water in the cove, but that is not the fault of the property or owner so cant fault them! All in all, the house rental process, the property, and Mohsen made it the perfect weekend.

Would recommend this spot.

Our family had a wonderful time at this property. The house is very clean, well kept, and had all of the amenities you would need. It is in a very peaceful location and is on a gorgeous property. The owner was very accommodating to all of our needs, questions throughout our stay, and very prompt. I would give the highest recommendations for this house and the owner. Thank you for a memorable vacation.

Fantastic weekend stay

We had a group of 8 adults comfortably staying in the house for a few nights. It is in a great location (close to Natures Point) and has a fabulous view. The house has everything you need. We were able to even have our wedding rehearsal lunch out on downstairs deck. THANK YOU!!!!

Southern Girls Lake House Retreat

My five girlfriends and I stayed at the Villa Bella for our annual get-away. This house was everything describe on the website and more. Because we are all a little SEASONED, we needed a little help with the high tech equipment in the house. The owner walked us through every call. He is truly awesome! We were all surprisingly blown away by all the Modern Amenities, Huge Balconies, Sound System and Overall Space. The pictures on the web site are exactly what the home looks like. It was a Awww... moment for us all. In the evening we got a chance to see the family of Deer’s across the street. Everything was amazing. Unfortunately the Lake was low, but other than that, we had an awesome time. We highly recommend this house if you are looking for a Upscale Classy Get-A-Way from the hustle and bustle of the city. Overall beautiful scenery, relaxing and tranquil stay at Villa Bella.

Great NYE Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at Villa Bella (which definitely lives up to its name!) over NYE with a group of friends - we had a great time. The owner was great - responsive and helpful when we had questions, and the property was gorgeous. The built-in speaker system with speakers/controls in all rooms of the house, including the garage (equipped with pool/ping-pong and even a TV and couch) was a huge plus for us! Unfortunately, it was too cold to take advantage of the beautiful patios but we had a great time regardless. Definitely recommend 100%.

We bought this location because of the easy access to the Lake. The Lake sits in our back-yard. We are located on a private cove that is perfect for swimming, cave exploring and cliff climbing. The beauty of the Lake, surrounding cliffs and nature cannot be found in any other location.
