Perfect Corporate Holiday Party Venue! – We had our office holiday party in the Travis Room and Vintage Villas and it could not have been better! The food was so delicious, the manager and servers on duty were extremely helpful and friendly to everyone. Also, they had set up the tables and decor as a winter wonderland theme which was so lovely! The whole entire office came up to me saying it was the best company holiday party yet! Katy, the Corporate Sales Manager did an awesome job setting it up and working with our needs. Thanks for a great event, I will keep Vintage Villas in mind for the future!
Bad Business Practices – Although a beautiful setting and great food, beware of their business practices. Read the contract thoroughly before signing. They are in the practice of applying charges to credit cards without prior notification and consent of the card holder (most states consider this fraud). They charged an amount after our wedding after we had made good faith payments toward the amounts indicated on our contract. After making the last payment based on the final amounts that THEY provided, they uncovered an accounting error on their end. Once determined, they charged the amounts to a credit card not owned by us without express consent and notification to the card holder prior to the charge being applied. In most service industries, errors uncovered by inaccurate accounting after the client has made good faith efforts to pay the amounts based on their statements of final amounts is not typically a good business practice. They are now forcing us to make up for their accounting errors almost a month post the event. If the amount was in the hundreds I would probably not make a big deal of this, but it is in the thousands. Especially, since when the last payment made we asked "is this the final payment and no other amounts due?" with a response of "Yes". Just be wary of what you sign, who signs it and make sure to double check the numbers they give you as apparently they have accounting mishaps that they will pass on to the customer rather than writing off as a business loss.
PS - they tout that they have beautiful views and they once did. They now have a house that has been built that is squarely in the view. Note that they knew prior to our signing the contract that the house was being built and said nothing when we signed. A week later I drove by and saw the foundation being laid. When I asked, I learned that they had been in lengthy negotiations with the owner of the property. So they were well aware of the construction that would be taking place and the potential for the obstruction of the view on which they sold the venue. Again, disclosure is not one of their strong suites.

Best Wedding Spot in Austin – I had a certain image of what I wanted my wedding to be. Lauren at Vintage Villas helped me create the perfect evening! I couldn't be happier! She was absolutely amazing to work with and made the evening so beautiful. Even though the bartender was rude it didn't matter because the food, the view and the service of everyone else was outstanding. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!
Great atmosphere to decrompress in and enjoy fantastic views of Lake Travis. – Rooms are very comfortable, decorated to represent the various regions of Texas. Extraordinary friendly and helpful staff.
All I could every wanted! – My wedding was all I ever wanted and I want to thank everyone working at V.V. for helping it to be this way. The atmosphere was beautiful but very peaceful and laidback. I was a very relaxed bride because the view was great, the weather was perfect and everyone working at V.V was very nice. Thanks again!
Away from the city and comfortably swanky for business, pleasure--or both. – The Scene
Lush hills and a Lake Travis view combine for a perfect backdrop to unique business events or weddings. Memorable photos are easy next to the gazebo, and numerous windows enhance the large Sunset Room. Vintage Villas is located 30 minutes from Austin and guests feel like they're in a secluded world. Friendly staff directs you to nearby golf courses and boating areas.
The 40 spacious, beautiful guest rooms and three magnificent suites, separated into three themed buildings to increase privacy and decrease noise, feature balconies with perfect sunset vantage points. Everything feels carefully and personally chosen. Furniture includes iron and pine, and a wealth of antiques. King rooms offer whirlpool tubs; queens have double showers.
Oasis style sunsets – Eat early or eat late, but don't miss the Sunsets from the balconies of the rooms. The king rooms have private balconies. Ask for 3rd floor...best views. Bring a blender and make your own frozen margaritas. Also, don't miss the breakfast the next morning - it is included.
