**We would greatly appreciate you contacting us before doing a "REQUEST TO BOOK. Please check the end of this description for restrictions and details on Homeaway procedures.**

A GREAT HOME IS EVEN BETTER!! Same wonderful floorpan and amenities but complete remodel, new kitchen with granite countertops, new stainless steel appliances, two refrigerators, two dishwashers, 5 burner ceramic stove top, double oven, two dishwashers, even larger breakfast bar, new cabinetry in kitchen, bathrooms with new showers, cabinets & countertops, new floors (tile and carpet), new windows, exterior and interior paint, new outdoor furniture with a dining table that seats 16 and more.

This home is a perfect get away for people who want beautiful sunsets from the balcony (and main living area) as well as a home that has been furnished with great attention to detail. With its great location on Lake Travis and all of its amenities, it provides a fantastic lake experience.

DESCRIPTION--Probably the best feature of this home is its open main floor that includes the kitchen, dining room, entertaining area and family room. It allows for ease in gathering and enjoying each other's company while engaging in various activities. People can watch or help prepare meals at the huge breakfast bar while others play pool/foosball or watch the large 3-D television. Others would argue that the best feature is the expansive covered balcony providing an amazing place to hang out while watching gorgeous sunsets with deer walking between you and the lake. There is an outdoor fan to help create a cooler environment.

The master has an office desk with a fax machine and printer. Downstairs is a bunk room that has four sets of bunk beds. Of the four bunk beds, three have full size beds on the bottom bunk and twin size beds on the top. The fourth bunk bed has a queen size bed on the bottom bunk and a queen size bed as the top bunk. The bunk room is equipped with a Flat Screen T.V. & DVD player and its own Direct T.V. receiver. There are three bathrooms that include two upstairs and one downstairs. The master bathroom has a double vanity with very large walk in shower. The second bathroom is near the two guest rooms and has a walk-in ceramic tile shower. The third bathroom is located downstairs near the bunk room and has a walk-in shower.

LOCATION--This home is located in Lago Vista, which is surrounded by beautiful Texas Hill Country, 38 miles from Austin's downtown 6th Street, 53.5 miles from the Formula 1 Race Track (Elroy) and 47 miles from the Austin Bergstom International Airport. You will be close to Hill Country wine tasting or hiking as well as close enough to enjoy many activities in Austin.

SETTING--This home has a very quiet and scenic setting on Lake Travis. The large deck looks out to the high cliffs of Paleface Park (also called Pace Bend Park). With no homes or campers on the opposite side of the lake, sitting on the deck watching the sun set over the cliffs is breath-taking!

WATERFRONT--Located directly on deep water Lake Travis, Villa Soleil is a great location for all types of water sports. Even during the drought, the boat dock remained floating, and there was still great water. A local boat company will deliver a boat or other water craft to the dock with no delivery fee. With a gentle slope and a 5' wide concrete walkway from the home to the lake, there is very EASY ACCESS!!

BOAT DOCK--The boat dock is a single covered slip that will accommodate up to a 23' direct drive boat and two personal water crafts. The boat dock's electric lift has been updated with a new and improved cradle that will accommodate a direct drive or a V-Drive boat. There is also an electric lift for two personal water crafts. Bring your poles; the fishing is great right off of the dock!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came from Arizona, North Carolina and Florida to celebrate a milestone birthday with great friends. This home is wonderful and inviting. We would recommend this place to anyone who wanted to visit Texas. Bring fishing poles and have brunch at Flat Creek Winery! Just make sure to keep Austin Weird!

Spacious and quiet spot nestled right along Lake Travis (Colorado River)

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to thank the VRBO Agent, Kathi Miles, for being professional, courteous and responsive. She did a great job in making sure the transaction went smoothly. Secondly, I would like to thank Jacque Wittmuss, the property manager, who made sure that our stay was perfect. She was very responsive to our needs and questions about the property.

The property was very spacious and clean. It easily housed our family of 6 adults and 3 grandchildren. The view was great and and inviting. We used the boat dock to fish from. An added bonus was that there were many deer walking around that made it perfect for our grandchildren.

The Television was exceptionally large and good for family viewing. The wifi handled all without any buffering. The pool table/ tennis table was used by all. The kitchen and eating area were ideal for our family meals. And at night it was extremely quiet.

Jacque mentioned that the property is slated for a remodel and we would certainly be interested in going back for another stay at this great property. I have quite a few pictures but I do not see a place where I can submit or attach them.

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful home. It was perfect for our needs and Jaqueline was very accommodating with our group due to some road blocks we encountered because of Hurricane Harvey. The house was fully stocked and and comfortable and perfect for our group of 11 girls! The beds were also extremely comfortable! I would definitely recommend this property and would stay again! 5 stars!

Wonderful house and relaxing weekend for a company retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Our engineering company takes a weekend trip every year, and this was my year to plan it. We picked the house on VRBO and couldn't be happier with it. There were 12 of us in the house and we really enjoyed the main room of the house. We spent the weekend playing pool, ping-pong, and foosball. We played poker, and swam in the river. We went out to eat at the Gnarly Gar restaraunt and had great food.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this house to anyone. Thank you for allowing us to stay.

very nice and spacious

  • 4 of 5

The house was great and accommodated all of us nicely! The propane tank was empty and we did replace it ( no need to reimburse). The only trouble was we ran out of toilet paper and finally found an extra roll downstairs.

Beautiful house and clean

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house for mini vacation and spent time with family during spring break from 3/16 to 3/19/2017. The house is beautiful and clean. Our kids enjoyed the bunk beds, Pool Table and Football Foosball Table Games the most. We definitely recommend this one.

The living room space/open kitchen is ideal for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

The living room and open kitchen were so perfect for our large group that loves to cook and just hang out. The double fridge was perfect for the amount of food and beverages we had to bring in. The house is beautiful and well maintained.
