“"Heaven" Tucked into the side of a mountain”
Reviewed June 12, 2009

This is a little slice of "Heaven" built right into the side of a mountain! My boyfriend Gary had told me of this place and so for his birthday we went to La Villa Vista. It is beautiful, more than words can truely describe....... You are tucked into the side of a mountain with wonderful views of Lake Travis from the entire house and your own private pool and hot tub right outside. I had never stayed and a Bed and Breakfast and felt a little funny about doing so, but what a great time we had. The way the house is set up you can mingle with other guests if so you desire, but yet there is also privacy. The owners Eva and her husband are fantastic, and really go out of there way to make sure you are taken care of. For instance on our last day there Gary and I were the only guests, so Eva cooked us breakfast instead on laying out the entire continental breakfast that is offered every morning. This is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. It is also "magic" in the aspect of just being there and watching the sunsets and having the wonderful views makes you so thankful for all that life has to offer........

Thanks again Eva,
Delane

We have been to many bed and breakfast in Texas but by far this one was the best. It's located on the side of the mountain with an awesome panoramic view of Lake Travis. The home is furnished beautifully and has a great sense of romance. There are great balconys that all face Lake Travis. The pool and hot tub are very unique and face directly down on the lake. This whole property is landscaped in a beautiful way. We stayed two nights but would have loved to stay longer and will certainly return.
The owners take great pride in this home and property and are very personable people in everyway. And they provided a great breakfast both mornings that we enjoyed having on the oversized main balcony.
If you like a beautiful peaceful and romantic setting you will love this B&B.

I just returned from an "absolutely" wonderful stay at La Villa Vista in Austin. I had stayed at the Villa twice previously in the last few years but this was the first time since the new owners, Eva and Ken, had purchased it. The place was great before but is "fantastic" now. The views are unbelievable and all the rooms are very comfortable and accomadating. Relaxing by the pool while gazing out at Lake Travis below makes you realize what a "great find" this place really is. Eva and Ken make you feel like you're family while giving you the "run of the house" but at the same time giving you all the privacy you desire. Here's the bottom line. If you're going to Austin for business or pleasure, you owe it to yourself to check this place out. You'll be glad you did!

My wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at La Villa Vista. The views from ALL of the rooms at La Villa Vista (on Lake Travis in Austin) are absolutely spectacular! We watched the sunset over the lake from one of the balconies one evening and could not have imagined a more beautiful and relaxing setting. The owners, Ken and Eva, made us feel like we were family members who they had invited to share their home. We will recommend La Villa Vista to all of our friends who want a romantic getaway on a beautiful lake setting. Breakfast was very good as well! A final plus is the location, which is within a short walk of Austin's famous Oasis restaurant overlooking Lake Travis so you can have dinner without ever having to get back in the car after arrival.

My wife and I booked this B&B sight unseen, but knowing the area very well we were anticipating a delightful stay. The owner told us that we'd get the honeymoon suite as it was the only one available. Our anticipation was shattered when we walked in the door. The room was dark, depressing and decorated with faux Italian furinishings. The windows don't open and you have to share a balcony. Moreover, it was poorly cleaned and smelled odd. We called the owner and said we didn't want to stay. She challenged us by dismissing our concerns as nonsense. Not only did she charge us for the first night, which is understandable, but she also charged us for the second night despite not having stayed at all. I read the above positive reviews and can't believe we're talking about the same place. Avoid this B&B!

My husband and I needed to just get away from the craziness of raising teenagers and many other demands on our time. This was JUST what the doctor ordered! And merely minutes away from our home in Austin! Eva and Ken were lovely, and very welcoming, and we enjoyed and felt comfortable utilizing all the home's common areas, and our own private room, which was the Penthouse! Every room has a spectacular view! We enjoyed the sunset down on the terrace by the infinity pool, warm evening breezes and it was absolute perfection! We invited some friends to come have a glass of wine with us and they stayed the entire eveing. It was great! There are rennovations being done to improve what is an already beautiful villa/home. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! We can't wait to return!

My husband and I stayed at La Villa Vista and had a wonderful experience! Beautifully appointed and relaxing environment with breathtaking views! The hosts are so friendly and accomodating! The whole atmosphere made us feel as though we were in a European village. The bedding was quite comfortable and we never felt a lack of privacy. Starting the day off enjoying breakfast from the veranda cannot be beat! We'll be back!!
