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.

Best regards Brian Zoll

60th Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated his birthday in this lovey villa. The villa was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the lake and pool. We toured the lake on a pontoon boat and visited Flat Creek winery. This particular Tuscan Villa was very attractive, clean and easy to access. We had a memorable weekend and expect to return.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The Tuscan Villa had everything we needed for our weeklong stay near Austin. It was clean and very comfortable. Loved the location and the view of the river while enjoying my morning coffee was spectacular! Will definitely revisit this Villa for future visits to the Austin area.

Great view and great place to relax with resort feel.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nicely updated and very comfortable. The master bedroom bed was very comfortable. We loved walking around the area. Enjoyed having coffee on the patio with great views of the pool and lake. The only reason for the 4 star rating was because of the 3 day powerwashing that went on by the pool and outside our balcony. They might want to choose a different week besides Spring Break week to powerwash. Thanks for great accommodations to relax.

Quiet long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Property was great! Been living in Austin for 10 years and hadn't heard of The Island until we booked the property. If you want a quiet, low-key place that is far enough for easy access to Hill Country attractions but close enough to the greater Austin area, this is a fantastic choice!

Good accomodation.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the condo and everything seemed fine except the guest bathroom. Noticed that there was a leak somewhere in the bathroom and water did collect on the floor, near the toilet bowl.

Nice quiet weekend in Austin on Lake Travis

  • 5 of 5

Very satisfied with this property. Very clean, updated and quiet. The gym family was nice for an early morning workout. Enjoyed an outing to Flat Creek Estate Winery only a short distance away.
