Dog-friendly, waterfront condo with lake views, shared pools & hot tubs

Your stay in Texas is finally made complete in this beautifully remodeled Lago Vista vacation rental. Perfect for one family or two couples traveling together (and up to two dogs), this first-floor condo has it all! Spend your days relaxing by the shared swimming pool and hot tub and your nights at a trendy local restaurant, eating one of your favorite dishes and sipping on a specialty cocktail.

Located in Lago Vista, your new favorite condo is perched on the Colorado River, which feeds directly into nearby Lake Travis before flowing into the city. Just about a 40-mile drive from bustling Austin, TX, you will be an easy day trip away from the city for shopping, dining, and theatre.

Enjoy tiled floors, modern furniture, lovely panoramic views of Lake Travis, and granite countertops in your elegant condo.

The living room is large and filled with light filtering in through the custom plantation blinds, with its own flatscreen cable TV and comfortable pullout couch. Bring your own DVDs from home and have a movie night after a day full of activity.

Your large French door refrigerator has plenty of space to store ingredients for that big meal you’ve been planning, or to keep leftovers from local restaurants to warm up in the microwave the next day. When the meal is ready, eat inside or head out to the covered patio to dine on an outdoor couch or two charming, rustic rocking chairs. The patio faces west, so in the evening, pour yourself a glass of wine and watch the romantic Texas sunset from your beautiful condo.

Don't forget the free WiFi! Central AC throughout will keep you cool, and you’ll also have a private washer/dryer tucked away behind the circular glass dining table, so there's no need to fret about keeping those swimsuits clean!

The elegant master suite is spacious, with its own comfortable king-size bed, en suite bathroom with a standalone shower, and flatscreen TV mounted on the wall so you can watch your favorite shows in bed. It even has access to the patio, so you can look out at the river in the morning. If you want to sleep a couple more people, the pullout couch in the living room folds out to a full-size bed. Both the king-size bed in the master bedroom and the pullout couch in the living room have Tempurpedic mattresses, so you’ll be very comfortable here.

Bring your dogs along, as well! Two furry friends can come with you for a small nightly fee.

Shared amenities include gym access, picnic spots, outdoor gas grills, and a fishing pier. Lake levels do fluctuate, so if you’re a fisher please make sure to reach out beforehand to check. If that's not really your thing and you'd rather stay inside and relax, you can even book yourself a treatment at the day spa to have a truly pampered vacation.

Lovers of all things aquatic are sure to be enamored with the activities available at the lake. If you bring your boat along for your vacation, make sure to check out the marina on the south end of the property. Boat slips are available to rent, so don’t miss out if you love the water!

Of course, you can always just soak up the sun in one of two gigantic shared swimming pools with their own hot tubs. Surrounded by plants and lots of sunchairs, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a desert oasis!

Could this Texas Hill Country vacation rental be the getaway of your dreams? Book today and have a lovely trip!

We had a wonderful time in Lago Vista! It was easy to book the trip and the unit was everything depicted in the pictures. Our family would definitely return back in the near future.

The condo was clean and nice, close to the elevator and the pool. Every body that I came across was nice and friendly. Right on the with beautiful views of the lake and sunset. Grocery store and CVS fairly close to the condo. All in all, great experience! Will return for another visit.

Was a great place to relax and unwind.
Jennifer L. Oct 2017
The condo and location was amazing with a beautiful view of the lake from the balcony and the cleanliness was great as well. However, when calling about questions before our arrival they spoke to one of my friends and immediately assumed that we were having some huge party and was threatened with a visit from their security guards to check our IDs, that if we had more than the maximum allowed of guests we would be asked to leave. I understand that they want to be cautious with these kinds of things but they should not immediately assume that every guest will be participating in those sorts of activities. Other than that I had a great experience.

Quiet, private gated community.

Title of your review: Had a great weekend
Your experience: Very neat, clean tidy unit. Close to pool and with nice view. Vacasa staff were very helpful on the phone regarding how to operate fridge and television (five remote controls were too much for us low tech people). Everything we might have wanted was there in the kitchen and bathroom. Nice shower with side jets and rain nozzle. We hope to book this unit again on our next trip. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub, the peace and quiet at this time of year, The Island restaurant, Balcones Canyonlands hiking, checking out some blocks of land for a possible purchase and seeing friends staying longer term at The Island.
Stayed: May 2017

This place is awesome. Great place to relax with the family!!!
Denise W. Apr 2017
The Vela Villa was a cute place. It just needed a bit more furniture in the living room and few pictures to make the ambience more appealing. First impressions are really important. The front door was beat up with use and could use a coat of paint. The towels, bedding and kitchen was very well supplied. I think a few additions and sprucing up would help this place be the best.
Shane F. Apr 2017
So happy I picked this place. Perfect location and clean.
Areen A. Mar 2017
Nice place, good view, maintenance was not good but over all the place was nice. you will like it.
Kim G. Oct 2016
Traveled from katy with two teens. Played golf at lago vista golf course. It was amazing, deer everywhere. Really nice course. Our room had everything we needed. Bedding for pullout couch, soap, cleaning products for every machine. Clean condo and literally righ next to pool. Easy to get around from parking garage just ride elevator up and there is your room. The two kids loved it. Just a lake town not many restaurants around that we were interested in but we know the area so we ate at Lupe tortillas in Cedar Park This was a great getaway for all.
Mary S. Sep 2016
We really enjoyed our stay here, the bed were comfy, the kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area and in need of accommodations.
Sjoerd D. Sep 2016
We had a great time in this apartment. It is very 5 seconds away from the pool which makes it ideal if you are with small kids. Furniture and kitchen-tools are great. It has its own parking in the garage, so no hot car when leaving. I'd definitely recommend this place, price .quality is great.
Leticia G. Sep 2016
Great place to just relax.
Fran M. Sep 2016
It was perfect to have a small getaway, very small town, nice people, but not good if you are looking to go into Austin city.
Abby P. Jun 2016
We booked this villa for a staff retreat, and we loved the views, the location from our headquarters in Round Rock, and the property as a whole was pretty clean, despite some crazy thunderstorms in the area the previous weeks. Booking was easy, we loved the layout of the parking garage/elevator/our front door, and our living room opened onto a balcony overlooking the pool and beautiful lake. We had read reviews about being sure to bring as much as possible, since the island is a bit remote, but we were surprised and a little disappointed to find a less-than-well-stocked kitchen. There was also a sink that did not drain, a chair that fell apart under us, and a rug and sofa that could stand to be replaced. If those items could be addressed before our next year's retreat, however, we would be happy to return!

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend getaway to the Vela Villa condo located on The Island at Lago Vista. The poolside view overlooking the Colorado River was absolutely stunning. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

My wife, 17-year-old daughter and I visited for a long weekend in early March 2016. The condo was as advertised -- it was clean, comfortable and had a nice view. The pool and hot tub also were right outside, which was convenient. Two small complaints: there was no blanket provided for the sofa bed and there was no dishwasher detergent.
The island property and condominium development was quite nice and well cared for. We did not eat at the cafe there, or use the exercise facilities but they looked quite nice.
The only real issue is the island is fairly remote from everything. If you forgot something or need something from the market, it's a pretty fair drive back into town. Also, we found the nearby restaurant choices uninspiring, but that's not the fault of the condo owners.
Roger G. Mar 2016
This unit was clean and comfortable. The views from the living room and bedroom were beautiful. The outdoor pool and hot tub were very accessible. We would return if we happen to be in the area again.
Michelle T. Mar 2016
Beautiful property, nice surroundings and very friendly and pleasant experience...
Michelle T. Feb 2016
We will definitely be coming back. Our small getaway was amazing and we are looking forward to doing it again soon!

We had a wonderful time at this lovely "home"!
We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our family and friends! :)
Thank you!!

My husband and I stayed for 1 week in this beautiful 1 bedroom villa overlooking a sparkling pool and Lake Travis. We were there in late October and really enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the abundant deer that frequent the grounds. The villa was fully equipped with quality furnishings, bedding, and kitchen items.It was so relaxing to sit on the attached patio and see the pool and the lake. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this villa in Lago Vista!
Gaylon D. Oct 2015
Great condo with amazing view of lake and pool. Nice updates and high end furnishing throughout.
