GREAT PLACE FOR LAKE TRAVIS VISITORS

  • 4 of 5
The previous reviews are all so positive I can barely add to them. This villa has several units and a pilates studio. Our unit was spotless and yes the bed is indeed very comfortable. In fact, I will be purchasing the pillows they provided as soon as I get home! The air conditioning was great, which is essential for those TX summers. I try to be balanced in my reviews, so the only thing I can say that is possibly negative is that the room is a bit tight. If you are simply running around and not planning to veg out in your rental then this is space is perfect and you cannot beat the price. If you goal is to rest and refresh in your destination, you may want to look a little further. There is only one chair to sit in inside, but there is a lovely little patio right outside your door. And kudos for including a mini refrigerator that fits 4 bottles of wine! There is a microwave and full size coffee pot as well. We would definitely rent this space again.

PERFECT ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were celebrating our 5-year wedding anniversary on May 23, 2014. We wanted to head to Austin for the weekend from Dallas and experience as much as possible on a long Memorial Day weekend. Bob & Vy's Hippie Hollow Villa was the perfect location for us and turned out to be more than a pleasant surprise. More comfortable than a hotel. More private than a bed & breakfast. Much nicer than a typical Airbnb.com rental.

For starters, the scenic drive that winds up and down Comanche Trail Drive, past the infamous Oasis restaurant, with breathtaking views of Lake Travis and the surrounding hill country, was quite the sight. Then when we arrived at the Hippie Hollow Villa we were instantly impressed with how serene the setting was and how updated, new, comfortable and clean everything was at this property. This is as good as any high end resort with more privacy and peace and easier access to get in and out of your villa.

Upon arrival it was quite clear how caring and attentive to detail our hosts were - there was a welcome letter with tips on getting the most out of our stay, what was available to us throughout the property, and prior to our arrival Bob asked what temperature we prefer in the Villa and when we walked in it was set perfectly to our liking. The rest of the property was as serene as the guest Villas and Bob & Vy made it clear that we could enjoy the view from the deck above, which looks out to Lake Travis, The Oasis Restaurant off in the distance, and more breathtaking views for miles of the Hill Country.

From this location it is quite easy to get to quite a few excursions, from a trip to the wineries to dining out at the local restaurants (including the Oasis which is right down the street) to the Lake Travis Zipline Adventure to any water activity on Lake Travis to visiting local parks and sightseeing tours to whatever you can imagine. You are just a hop, skip and jump away from many fun excursions and activities from Bob & Vy's Hippie Hollow Villa.

Finally, you will find Bob & Vy to be excellent, caring hosts who will go out of their way to help you should you need anything, responding almost instantly to any questions or needs, making great recommendations (should you ask), yet allow you to experience a peaceful visit by respecting your privacy. If you are seeking a quiet, peaceful, romantic weekend getaway in or around the Lake Travis area of Austin then you will definitely want to stay at the Hippie Hollow Villa!

TOTAL PACKAGE. TOTAL PERFECTION.

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I wanted to stay on the lake away for a relaxing birthday weekend. Could not have been happier with our choice to stay with Bob and Vy. They are truly the perfect hosts - available and happy to provide anything we needed, but not interfering with our alone time. The villa is beautiful, the bed is more comfortable than any 5-star hotel, and the view from the upper deck of the lake is stunning. We are already planning a return trip to bring friends!

BEAUTIFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was a surprise weekend getaway and could not have gone better. The room and property was absolutely beautiful and well maintained. The location is perfect for wanting to go to the lake, go in to town, or head to the Oasis. Even the amenities were well above the standard.

This was also my first time to book a vacation like this online. Bob and Vy were more than helpful and made everything easy; they care about providing a great stay. Will definitely book again.

NICE WEEKEND AWAY FROM IT ALL...

  • 5 of 5
I had never been to Austin before, and I had always heard Lake Travis was beautiful this time of year. A very impromtu idea, my boyfriend and I wanted a quiet beautiful place to just get away and relax. This was the perfect location/scene to do it. It felt like we were on our own island it was so quiet and exclusive, but it was the perfect distance from the lake/swimming area (3 min drive) grocery store (8-10 min) and The Oasis eating/shopping area (5-7 min). We had a blast and look forward to telling friends about it and going back ourselves someday!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. This lower basin of Lake Travis has always been uniquely beautiful to us but to hear that our guests felt the magic is music to our ears. Thanks for coming.

Downtown Austin is a 25 minute drive and truly has something for everyone and some of the best live music on the planet...or just chill out on the deck and take in the stars.
