Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
Tuscan Style House With A Great View Of Lake Travis.


When you compare:

1) THE VIEW - A comparable view of the Oasis Restaurant (called the Sunset Capital of Texas) with 180 degree view of Lake Travis. A water view from every room except the media room with over 2,500 sq ft of outside slate decks. We are the same height as the Oasis located four minutes away.

2) LOCATION- 18 miles from downtown as compared to:

Lago Vista - 35 miles

Spicewood - 35 miles

Lakeway - 22 miles

Volente - 21 miles

Briarcliff - 30 miles

Point Venture - 40 miles

Only 20 miles to the airport and 25 miles to the F-1 racetrack. Lake Travis is 65 miles long so location makes a difference. We are near everything that you need - grocery, Shopping, Restaurants, entertainment.

3) QUALITY - newly built with many upscale features including:

a) Natural Stone Travertine Floors throughout

b) Granite countertops

c) Pool and outside hot tub

d) Four levels of outside slate decks to view sunsets

e) Stone interior and exterior walls

f) Media room - ten foot screen and unbelievable sound

g) Professional Kitchen

h) free Wi-Fi with Uverse Digital TV service

i) Very private

j) Exterior glass doors opens to create a 12 ft opening to connect the exterior with interior for parties


There aren't many 4,400 square foot homes renting at this price with these features.

Come visit. Bring all your problems. Within an hour of being hypnotized by the water you will forget them all. You can cut the time in half with a drink. Even with the Central Texas drought there is still 80-120 feet of water in the main basin.

About the Owner

We enjoy entertaining people. Austin is a very friendly, relaxed and outdoors type of town. I will make sure that your stay is enjoyable.

I reserve leasing the house to only families. Bachelor and Bachorette parties I can book on my chartered yacht, but not the house. So please no inquiries from single guys or music companies.

Amazing! A wonderful family retreat.

This house was the perfect place for our family to celebrate my 60th birthday. The set-up was amazing and the view was gorgeous. It was a weekend we will cherish forever. I totally recommend this location. Although the pool was a bit small, i, along with the hot tub and cascading waterfall were all built in to the natural stone of the landscape. Each room has an open view to the outside, a view not compromised by the low lake levels.
The owner was very accommodating and open to work with our busy schedules. Our adult children want to make this an annual event!

Wonderful relaxing family mini vacation. Joe and his wife were great hosts, even though Joe was out of town the day we arrived, he called to walk me through the homes features. Home is centrally located to Austin points of interest but secluded enough to be truly relaxing. We did not hear our neighbors and at night the view off the back deck reminded us of our time in Italy. The home is on a hill overlooking lake Travis so be prepared for winding roads, especially that last hill. I drive an SUV and had a fun time with my paddle shifters. Next time were taking my wife's Audi TT :). If your a techie, you will love all the toys. We plan in returning with some friends soon. Highly recommended. One word of caution, lake Travis is at record lows though this side of the lake still had enough water for boating. If you plan on bringing your own boat, please call ahead to confirm if public boat ramps are still open.

Joe helped me plan a surprise marriage proposal for my girlfriend at his villa in Austin. I live in Dallas and needed a great partner to be able to work with to coordinate all the details. I spoke with many of the owners and property managers at Homeaway and immediately knew I had found the right person when I spoke with Joe. He had almost the same level of excitement and enthusiasm about the idea as me!

The house was amazing and looked even better than the pictures. The view was spectacular and we really enjoyed the outdoor terraces as well as the outdoor hot tub. Inside, the house was very clean and everything was in great working condition. There were some great amenities including a media theatre room and a central music system.

In addition, Joe helped me plan every last detail. He laid out flower petals from the entrance to the balcony, setup champagne and decorated the entire house with bouquets of flowers including some dazzling orchids that we still have. He helped find a fantastic chef to cook us dinner during the first evening and masseuses to give us a couple’s massage the next day. Joe and his wife even took us out for an amazing evening on the lake on their boat on one of the days.
My fiancé and I are very grateful to Joe for being such a great host and highly recommend the villa as a great place for a vacation.

I hosted my 30th birthday party here with my closest friends and family and the owners of the home, Joe and his wife, far exceeded our expectations. I own an event planning company, so needless to say, I am a little picky about the details. He responded to my many emails within hours and made sure all my questions were answered.

In addition to Joe's impeccable hospitality and attention to detail, the home was beyond beautiful. Joe made sure we knew how to use the sound system and home theatre system, complete with how-to videos! The view is AMAZING and to top it off, there's a huge covered porch with 2 fire pits (s'mores!) and tons of seating for relaxing or entertaining. The living room's sliding glass door/wall completely opens up to the porch so you can enjoy the view from inside or outside!

I will definitely be back….maybe I'll even have my own wedding here one day!;) Not only will I return for a personal event, but I would recommend it to any client looking for a getaway weekend with the girls or a luxurious corporate retreat.

Thank you Joe! You made my 30th unforgettable!!

From the Owner

Austin has a combination of nature and being close enough to a medium size city with many amenities. You can completely relax by looking at the lake. Austin has been titled the Live Music Capital so there is always plenty of live music to hear any night. Additionally there are many excellent restaurants, historical places, and outdoor event activities. The F-1 races, the UT football games, many state championship tournaments are an example. There is alway something to do.

From the Owner

This property has a very unique view. Typically males walk through the house straight to the view. Ladies usually notice the house first and then the view. It is extremely peaceful and quiet. Although you can't understand the words, sometimes you can hear the people on the sailboats talking several hundred feet below.
