Beautiful Tuscan Villa -- Italy in Texas style
Submitted: January 10, 2012
Stayed: December 2011
My family rented this luxury Villa, "Texas in an Italian style," for a week over Christmas, and we loved it! Hank was a gracious host, very timely with answers.
The Tuscan Villa's plush sofa and chair in the living room and the huge master bed, with jacuzzi in the huge bathroom, and great view of Lake Travis from both of the big living room and bedroom windows made it a delightful stay for all of us.
The paintings and wall hangings, along with the wood cabinets and ceiling beams, gave it a real Italian Renaissance feel. While it was cool outside, we enjoyed real comfort inside the villa (with a very quiet and gentle heat system). The huge community pool, with a big powered hot tub as well as a hot dry sauna (and adjacent exercise room overlooking the lake, as well as a treatment spa) made us feel like "the Texas Coast in Spring."
The two parking spaces close to the elevator from ground to the first floor location was convenient (with two unloading spaces and a cart by the elevator).
The lake level was low, given the year-long drought, so it was hard to get down to the water over the limestone rocks to fish -- but I did catch several bass there. The kitchen was beautiful, with lots of electronics, and stone hearth. The TV was enormous and very clear. No complaints at all -- we will certainly rent it again.
Owner's Response: Alan, thanks so much for the wonderful review. We will continue to add interesting architectural features and unique appointments to the Tuscan Villa. I look forward to having you and your family back again. Thanks for taking the time to write the review! Sincerely, Hank.
