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 view is absolutely amazing and it's hard to capture in photos. Large main house has over 7000 sq ft and apartment bulding next to it houses a rec room and 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is studio style and adjoins the kitchen. The property can easily handle business or church 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

Enjoyed the home so much. Great place to relax and enjoy the view of the lake. Great place for our large family gathering. This is an awesome house!

Spacious and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a 4-night stay at this property. There were 18 of us, including 8 children ranging in age from 14 months to 16 years. If I could give this property 10 out of 5 stars, I would. The acres of land and waterfront location always provided something to do, and for those times where we wanted to do nothing at all, it provided a perfect opportunity for relaxation. The house and guesthouse are very spacious, and we had plenty of space to spread out. Not once, even with small children, did we feel cramped. Marsanna was extremely welcoming and gracious, a true picture of Texas hospitality. We are already planning a time when we can return next. The memories made here will last forever!

Silver Lining on a Rainy Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group began visiting Lake Buchanan in 1998. Our group has grown to 20, we've all gotten married, some divorced, had kids, but we all look forward to our annual "no kids lake trip". The past five or six years we have moved lakes due to the drought, but we were all excited to come back to Lake Buchanan this year. The weather was not great, it stormed every day we were there, but the accommodations made up for our soggy trip. The house was by far the best we've stayed. There were plenty of bedrooms/bathrooms, large kitchen, spacious living areas, and gorgeous views of the lake from the deck. Marsanna, the owner/property manager, was very nice and easy to work with. One of the a/c's were out upon our arrival and she had someone come out that evening to repair.

We all look forward to coming back next year!!

Perfectly Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

This property is gorgeous, huge, comfortable, and extremely well maintained and managed. We had our annual family lake weekend there and this property did not disappoint at all. Everything was as described and the whole rental experience was fantastic. This is the location to go to for a large group to enjoy the lake and relax inside inside in the evening. Thank you for sharing your property!!!

Beautiful spacious house and grounds! Everything we wanted and MORE!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family met at Lake Buchanan for our Annual Sibling Reunion. The property was fantastic. From the spacious home and huge "yard" to the well-appointed kitchen and extra household goods (towels, blankets, toiletries...etc), this place had it ALL! The owner was warm and inviting and was always available for whatever we needed. My Dad-72 years old, to our youngest kiddos-12 years old, and everything in between, our experience was amazing! We will definitely return!

Words don't do this property justice

  • 5 of 5

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.
