About M. Beseda

We live in Austin, Texas We have always loved beautiful properties with great views. When we first saw this property we believed it had one of the most incredible views around plus the benefit of being on the lake. The property was in rough shape, so we have spent the last 3 years restoring it. We take pride in sharing this beautiful property and do our best to make sure our guests are comfortable.

M. Beseda purchased this villa in 2007

Why M. Beseda chose Lake Buchanan

The main house and apartment sits on a hill overlooking the lake and the grounds. There is a gentle tiered walk down to the lake frontage where you are greeted with stone patios, walkways and a picnic area. The property has a huge jetty tha extends into the lake and when lake levels are up you can fish off of it. Lake Buchanan is the largest lake in the Highland lakes chain and feeds Inks, LBJ, Marble Falls and Lake Travis. Buchanan is not a constant level lake, it goes up and down. We are in the deep end of the lake so lake levels don't affect us as much and the view remains outstanding no matter what the lake level is. We do have a boat ramp on the property and the property is situated in such as way as to great a small cove along the lake shoreline. There is a hill country sandy beach.

What makes this villa unique

The property can easily handle groups and family reunions. There are many areas on the property where you can get together as a group or walk around for privacy. We only lease this property one group at a time, so you are not only renting the main house and apartment but also the lake frontage, jetty, boat ramp and all of the 10 acres,

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can I say about Marsanna and her amazing property that hasn't been said before in reviews. The property is immaculate and gorgeous. You have your own boat ramp and jetty (yes a jetty) whenever Lake Buchanan is full. Plenty of parking. Plenty of inside and outside space to run around.

The inside of the house is perfect for a family reunion - every room has its own bathroom. There is a restroom downstairs near the kitchen. Two refrigerators, gas stoves, utensils, plates, knives, etc. There are several decks to see outside from upstairs. There is a huge deck to have an outdoor gathering/eating. Volleyball net, fire pit by the lake. The guest apartment is perfect for those who may want to stay up later to play pool/foosball/shuffleboard and not disturb the main house. It also has a full kitchen.

We've rented properties for our family reunions for years and this is the first place that everyone was happy with - ever. Marsanna was very patient with all my questions and put me at ease throughout the entire process. When we arrived she was there checking the gas grill and even ran out to get a part to make sure it was working 100%.

The only issue we ran into was the dryer wasn't drying completely so we had to run it several times, but it was only a minor inconvenience. This is the first and only property and owner I would ever give a 10/10 rating to. I never leave reviews but made it a point to leave one for Marsanna because it was a great experience.

Private Resort sums it up - comfort and luxury in a beautiful setting, all for us!

  • 5 of 5

Twenty-three of our family (us, our kids, grands, and greats) spent a wonderful long weekend at Villa Buchanan in late June 2016. After plentiful spring rains, the lake was full, the grass was green, and the flowers were blooming. The house itself was luxurious and perfect for our family. Every bedroom with it's own bath and it's own thermostat is luxury in itself. There was ample room inside and outside to have both gatherings of the entire group, and small groups scattered over the property, just chatting, walking, playing games, fishing, etc. We had horseshoe and corn-hole (bean-bag toss) tournaments, played in the water a lot (the sandy beach was a pleasant surprise), fished from the private jetty (the fishing was good!). The best part was plenty of opportunity (and space) for all branches and ages of our family to spend some fun time together.

The owner was super helpful through the entire process, met us at the beginning and made it effortless to "settle in" to our temporary Shangri-La. The gated entrance was an appreciated security feature. Ample and varied seating in all venues was appreciated (Living Room, game rooms, outside decks, lakeside shelter, etc.

Amazing location, amazing owners!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this home and location! First, the location has a spectacular view with a very well-maintained grounds. The photos don't do it justice. There are so many areas to enjoy, and each is immaculate. The areas down at the lakeside are beautiful, and the owner kindly stocked the firepit with wood so we could enjoy a fire by the lake. Next is the home, which is well-laid out, very clean, and adorned with nice furniture, fixtures, and appliances. This is not a place you feel that the owner went with cheap options in case of damage. We had a retreat of 9 CEOs (who can be very particular) and everyone loved the beds, rooms, and home. The rec room in the second building is terrific as well. The only thing that would make this location even better would be showers in the upstairs bedrooms, but they have nice tubs and it was not an inconvenience or frustration.

The owners Marsanna and David are amazing. Marsanna was so helpful in answering many questions leading up to the arrival, including calling Splash Boat Rentals (a great option for boat rentals while there) to coordinate with them on questions they had. We had a small problem with an AC unit when we first arrived, and Marsanna had a service tech there within 15 minutes and the problem was solved. She made sure everything that was needed for our plans (grilling, firepit, games, and more) were ready, working, and in great shape. I've rented at least 15 homes in the past and never had such a great experience as I had here with both the owners and property. We've already reserved our dates for next year, and can't wait to return!

Property and home was better than pictured.

  • 5 of 5

A review was submitted around 7/12, but will take a second opportunity to praise this rental. It is very clean and well maintained, roomy, with a well stocked kitchen for cooking for a large number of guests. We rented a pontoon boat with an inner-tube and two jet skis, and all enjoyed our "private" cove. When not in the water we had a soccer game going or a corn-hole game, cards or conversation. A wonderful place for all ages.

This Lake Buchanan fabulous home was most accommodating for a large family reunion with absolutely gorgeous grounds and views. A great time was had by all from age 2 1/2 yrs. to 84 yrs. The owners are especially easy to work with, take very good care of their property, and seem genuinely interested in making sure all are comfortable.

Family Reunion 2015

  • 4 of 5

We have a large family and it's usually a difficult task to find cabins that can accommodate us. The property was the biggest that we had ever found and the owners were extremely understanding of our large family and were very accommodating. We are still talking about the villa, it's view of the acreage and Buchannan Dam. Never have we experience 8 rooms with their own personal bathrooms in one house and the additional apartment was just right for our family members that wanted to retire earlier each night! Will keep this in our favorites list for sure!
