About Hank Townsend

I was formerly in the home restoration / design business. I have enjoyed creating a Tuscan feel to this villa. It meshes well with the ambiance of The Island. I have other properties for vacation rental including a 1 bedroom villa on The Island and a beautiful 2 bedroom Costa Rican villa in Playa Grande, Costa Rica. Please let me know if you have interest in learning more about any of these properties. Thanks, Hank

Hank Townsend purchased this villa in 2005

Why Hank Townsend chose Lago Vista

The Island always makes you feel like you are on vacation and thousands of miles away from Houston, Dallas, or San Antonio. This is a unique, quiet and relaxing place to stay and The Tuscan Villa is very inviting.

What makes this villa unique

Excellent view and very uniquely furnished.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful villa. We stayed here from the 24th till the 30th of August.

Time went by way too fast as it was so relaxing. The view from the balcony is amazing. We loved spending

time at the outdoor pools. Our 2 year old daughter wanted to go outside every evening to go and see all the deer

that walk around early in the evening. It's paradise at Lake Travis. Compliments for the

owners because the condo is really nicely decorated (loved the master bathroom...) Thank you for sharing

this gorgeous place with us. Best regards The Zoll Family from the Netherlands.

Girl's Trip 2016

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing! There is a very Tuscan vibe to the this condo, and that was exactly what we were looking for, for our girl's trip. Coffee in the morning, and dinners on the patio overlooking the pool, the lake, and the cliffs, were fabulous. The condo is fully stocked with dishes, cookware, etc... And, lots of extra touches that made for a very cozy weekend. If you're looking for activities, there's LOTS to do, very close by. And, be sure to go to the Gnarley Gar Bar/Restaurant ON the lake. FYI... All the comments you'll see regarding the deer, are no exaggeration, they were everywhere. I will be returning to Lago Vista with my family, soon!

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as I expected. Weather was rainy but we enjoyed being together in condo rather than hotel. It was a brother-sister get together. Will return!
