Description of the Lake Travis vacation home rental
Situated on approximately 4 acres and surrounded by tall hills in the front, a wooded creek and greenbelt on one side and over 200 feet of Lake Austin waterfront in the back, Villa Toscana is a world away from the hustle and bustle of Austin, yet less than 30 minutes from the downtown scene.

As you enter the grand covered tower entrance you are immediately struck by the beautiful old world private Tuscan courtyard complete with a waterfall and colorful flowers and vegetation. You make a mental note to spend some quiet time sipping coffee on its covered terrace as the sounds of falling waters and chirping birds take you back to a simpler time.

You pass through the rustic tower lighted by gas lamps and enter Villa Toscana. There's an understated elegant ambiance that makes you at once feel at home. Your first glances are of the spectacular views of Lake Austin and surrounding hill county. You realize that you might have to postpone that Tuscan courtyard coffee break in favor of relaxing on the cozy overstuffed great room sofas overlooking the beautiful expanse before you.

You choose to explore the house and find that many wonderful surprises await you. From a hidden room behind a bookshelf, to the very private quiet sitting room off the master and overlooking Lake Austin, to the stone groin vault ceiling in the dining room, to the third floor terrace views and club room, to the chef's kitchen, to the amazing private theater, there is something for everyone at Villa Toscana.

Unwind in our beautiful 23 person spa that's right off the master terrace and provides sweeping views of Lake Austin.

Sit quietly and listen to the sounds of nature, or go for a hike on 26 miles of trails. Meditate at our private stone gazebo that overlooks the beautiful Lake Austin waterfront. Are you adventuresome? Take a kayak or stand up paddle board and enter the land that time forgot on one of the most incredibly beautiful and peaceful stretches of Lake Austin. If you are very quiet you will here the call of wild turkeys, egrets, ducks, and a plethora of other waterfowl. As you kayak between the tall canyons, you truly feel that you might be the first to have ever explored this area. Be sure to shout 'hello' and here your echo reverberate through the canyons. Jump in the cool water for a refreshing swim. Throw a hook in the water and try your luck with the abundant fish that prowl this area of the lake.

If you are a fitness buff, you will enjoy a work out in your own fully equipped, private gym. There you will find health club quality exercise equipment like an elliptical trainer, recumbent bike, pro rowing machine, stretching station, free weights, pull-up bars, etc. to accommodate just about anyone's workout regimen. Take in a movie in our state of the art private theater with high-tech, curved screen, super-high fidelity surround sound system, and one of the best projection systems money can buy. You will be wrapped in sound as you relax in the fully reclining theater chairs, or sitting in the amazing body massaging chair. You might be tempted to spend your entire vacation here. But don't!

Use one of our supplied IPod Touch's to program your own musical experience as you play any music your heart desires -- streamed to just the room you are in or to over 23 different areas on the estate.
