Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Come home to some of the best views in Hill Country at this 2BR villa on a lakefront family vineyard. A staircase leads to the lake, where you can hang out on the boat dock, float in the water, and tie off your boat after a day on the water. Located just 45 minutes from downtown Austin.

Looking for additional space for your group? Check out our sister property, Shiraz (VRBO #591538). Rent both to sleep 12 guests total.


At this villa, you have two wonderful views, with vineyards on one side and the lake and Hill Country on the other.

Walk into the living area, with vaulted ceilings, a TV with DVD player, and an open-concept layout that includes the kitchen and dining space. Large picture windows facing the balcony give you lake views from every spot—with not a bad view in the house!

From the living area, a door leads to the balcony with an outdoor table that seats 7 before that gorgeous view. Watch the boats go by, and when night falls, watch the lights illuminate Lake Travis.

In the kitchen, find a beautiful Silestone wraparound counter, and all appliances including a dishwasher. Please note that we do not have an oven, but there is a small convection oven. The living room has a door to the balcony with enough seating for seven around our table.

The rental’s two bedrooms are next door to each other. The first has two comfortable twin beds and plenty of drawer/closet space. The master bedroom has a luxury queen bed and hotel-quality bedding. Both bedrooms share a full bath with a tiled shower.


There’s plenty of ways to spend the day without even leaving your Hill Country rental. Wander between rows of grapes in the vineyard, or cool off on the lake on a boat, jet ski or raft. We are on one of the deepest coves of Lake Travis—the water is currently 45-feet deep below our boat dock.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, drive 13 minutes to Gnarly Gar, a floating restaurant where you can feed the fish while enjoying mouthwatering burgers and tacos. Fuel up in the morning with breakfast tacos at Deedee’s, a 7-minute drive away.

Head to Marble Falls to pick up a bottle of wine at Flat Creek Estate (15 minutes by car), or a bundle of berries at pick-your-own Sweet Berry Farms (a 30-minute drive away).

If you’re looking for something a little more high energy, downtown Austin is just a 45-minute drive from your rental. Taste test your way around well-regarded bars and restaurants, catch a set or two of live music, and be sure to visit the historic Texas Capitol.

Reviewer Comments:

Had a great stay with four adults and two children. The neighbors (owners?) were very nice and super helpful! We ran into problems with our boat trailer and they went above and beyond to help us out.The walk down to the lake is super steep but it's Lake Travis so we were expecting it. My 5 year old went up and down easily. There were lots of fish at the dock but unfortunately we ran out of time. We'll have to come back!

Tranquility plus!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, the location peaceful and relaxing, loved it. The condo has lots of space, awesome views, and the use of a grill made it perfect (but remember to bring charcoal). The only downside is the limited supply of kitchenware, not enough plates or wine glasses, no cutting board, burnt pan, etc. This is a great place to arrive, relax and stay put, its a bit of a drive to anywhere, so bring everything with you and put your feet up and relax. Also be careful, house locks automatically at checkout time so don't be caught outside enjoying the water and be a second late or you will be shut out as we were.

Perfect Quite Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic, secluded and quiet. It was very peaceful and nice to get away from the big city noise. The property was spotless and very nice. We greatly appreciated the extra blankets, pillows and other necessities. It was nice to sit on the covered porch and enjoy the weather and breeze and look at the stars at night.

Nice, but housekeeping needs tweaking

  • 3 of 5

This villa is clean, quiet, peaceful, scenic and fairly comfortable, but there were a few items lacking. The villa is supposed to sleep 6. There was only 1 washcloth in the entire unit. When we called to ask for more (for 4 ladies on a 2 night visit) we were told to go to the little wash house on site and find our own. There were bins in the little wash house full of bedding, but no washcloths. Additionally, there are only 2 wineglasses in the kitchen, 1 dinner plate, and not a single kitchen towel. Supplying these simple but expected amenities could go a long way to making the next visitors' stay much nicer. Also, we were called and told by the rental manager that we were too loud! No one was in the unit next to us to complain, and we were only watching a movie all evening, so not sure who complained or where they thought noise was from, but it was not us and was not an appropriate complaint. Otherwise, the view was great, we loved the porch overlooking the lake, the beds were very comfortable and the areas was quiet, private, and serene. Thank you.

Parents' Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

The Chardonnay House at the villas was a wonderful location to enjoy our break. The lake views from the back patio were amazing, and the villa was extremely clean and very well maintained. The location provided for a quite relaxing hub for our site seeing and hiking excursions.

Magnolia, TX


  • 5 of 5

The Villas are beautiful! My family and I have stayed many times at the villas, and plan on many more trips... The amenities are excellent in every aspect. The location is secluded, but not too far off the map providing a perfect, quite relaxing get away at an extremely affordable price. In my personal opinion the villas are PERFECTLY constructed in an absolute PERFECT location. MY FAMILY AND I WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!!
