About Mark Reis

We bought this vacation rental for ourselves but started renting it to others while not using it. It became so popular we got another. We live in North Austin moved from the Los Angeles area in 2005. We really like the smaller town feel the Austin area offers. We opened a wine bar in Round Rock just north of Austin in 2012.

Mark Reis purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mark Reis chose Lago Vista

We just loved the Island when we first came to it because it's such a unique spot. It was built in the Mediterranean style.

What makes this condo unique

The wonerful views give a relaxing feeling along with the ability to cook with a full kitchen and the on site charcoal grills that make your food taste the way I remember it as a kid.

Very Nice Property

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property that was very well maintained. The room had everything we needed and I especially like how well the kitchen was outfitted with functional cooking utensils. If you like to cook and have stayed in other locations, too often the kitchen is outfitted with cast-off utensils - so I usually bring my own. Not so here. Everything was well thought out and stocked. Bed was comfortable and the property was quiet. Pools were large enough that it never felt crowded. Several good restaurants within driving distance and north Austin was only about 30 mins away.

The Island

  • 4 of 5

The Island is a beautiful place to stay. Our condo 1215 was very clean and comfortable. The owners instructions of restaurants and instructions for The Island was perfect. We enjoyed our stay. Very relaxing. The sulfur smell on the lake side was quite strong. We just stayed away from that area. The workers and owners that we met were very friendly and glad to help us. Our only :o( was that the spa would not return our call. But I understand they are not connected to The Island. We would stay again.

Relaxing Getawat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely condo for 2 nights. The pictures are spot on. Even thou the complex is 30 years old it's still is in relatively good shape, with tons of amenities.If your looking for a quite relaxing vacation this is the place for you. There aren't a lot of places to shop so if you plan on cooking make sure you bring your groceries. This condo has everything you need to make you feel at home including board games, dvd's, tennis rackets & balls. The owner was quick to answer any of my questions via email or text messages. I will definitely return to The Island staying in the same unit.

Wonderful getaway

  • 4 of 5

As stated by others condo was as pictured. The area was beautiful and peaceful. We were there Tuesday-Friday so not very crowded which was nice. We stopped at HEB on 1431on way to resort but Loews market is much closer. Enjoyed everything but a couple of personal observations-darker window coverings in bedroom for sleeping in a little because windows face east. Also couldn't figure out how to turn bedroom lights off while leaving fan on. Could definitely hear people above us walking so if you are a light sleeper might bring ear plugs. Bed was a little hard since we are used to temperpedic but not bad. DVD player connection is component button on remote not AV as stated in book. Could use a pitcher for tea in kitchen. Not complaining at all just helpful (hopefully) thoughts. Oh and when you leave each time be sure to push the lock button on keypad. Gnarly Gars is a neat place to eat-a beautiful drive about 20 minutes away. Would definitely go back.
