Vintage Villas was an awesome choice for my wedding. We wanted a "destination" feeling to our wedding since we were not able to have one and Vintage Villas was the perfect spot for it. The hotels that are located next to the wedding venues are lovely and quaint. Having everybody right next to the wedding venue was a big hit! The Wedding Specialist are SO helpful and accomodating and made the day so much less stressful. We actually had our rehearsal dinner(which doubled a s NYE party) there and it as fabulous. The staff is friendly and accomodating also! The food was amazing! I was skeptical about a venue that does the food also BUT it was so great. I truly could not have asked for better service and a better wedding weekend!

We loved our entire experience from start to finish with Vintage Villas. We planned our wedding from Chicago and Erin, our sales manager, made it such a great experience. We never had to wait more than 24 hours for a response to our emails and nearly every request we made was granted. Our guests had a blast and are still raving about how great everything was. If you are looking for a beautiful, reasonably priced, fun, and accommodating venue … this is your place!

The staff at Vintage Villas was very attentive and helpful to our wants and needs. They were always available to answer questions and helped run our wedding smoothly.Lauren did a wonderful job answering questions and taking care of us. She also did great keeping everything in order on the big day. Mary did a great job of taking over as our timeline coordinator. She was super sweet and very helpful. The ceremony site looked amazing. We could really tell the grounds were well taken care of. The Travis room was set up exactly how we wanted and we thought all the linens looked great. We thought all the food with our fajita buffet was delicious. Our favorite things were the fajita beef and the queso. Everyone has told us that it was the best wedding food they have ever had. So, our compliments go out to the chefs and all the serving staff. Everything about our wedding was wonderfully done

My wedding was at Vintage Villas this past July. It was beautiful and all my guests loved it. I had right around 110 guests and there was plent of room for all. Ceremony was beautiful and it was so convinient to have the reception in the same building. I feel like the cost was little high. I felt like there were some hidden fees in the 20% service charge and the 20% set up fee. Other than that, the service was great, the location was beatiful and the day was perfect!

Vintage Villas was amazing. We called Vintage Villas on a Saturday in late January, when everyone is looking for a wedding venue for the summer. When I called, I was greeted by Samantha Botello, who is the sales manager for vintage villas. I could not have lucked into a more professional, knowledgeable and helpful person to have answered the call. She was accommodating, managing to fit us in that day, when we called on a whim while looking at other venues. Samantha did a wonderful job all the way around. she really keeps you on track, and acted as both the wedding coordinator and the venue manager. I was not a bridezilla at all, and as a result, Samantha was super agreeable to all of our ideas, suggestions, and requests. The food was AMAZING. Let me say that again, the FOOD WAS AMAZING! we ended up also reserving the South Texas villa - which made for a very fun weekend. it felt like one big house full of family and friends. We also hosted a breakfast the next morning and the food and service was stellar. Every one on the staff goes out of their way to make you feel at home, taken care of and comfortable with your very important day. I also met the General manager and owner the day before the wedding, and he actually helped me unload and carry in my trunkful of decorations and things for the next day. Kristie, the hotel manager gave me free reign to come in and out of the hotel office to get my things. The entire staff took care of our every request, from the smallest last minute "day of" requests to the larger decisions. All of the staff did everything we asked of them and so much more. They turned what could have been a very stressful day, to a fun, calm and relaxed one.
I could not have asked for a more beautiful location, a more accommodating staff or better food for my special day. Thank you Vintage Villas!

Vintage Villas was absolutely amazing! I cannot say enough good things about this venue. Every email was responded too promptly and every question had an answer. Not to mention the venue is STUNNING! It rained the day of my wedding so we had to move the ceremony indoors but the indoor room was just as beautiful. My coordinator, Erin, was so great and she was so on top of everything the day of and all the months leading up to the big day! We had the Tuscan meal plan and all my guests could not stop telling me how delicious the food was. All day long on our big day they had wonderful touches that made the day extra special! They had champagne ready for as right after we walked out of the ceremony and at the end of the night, they had a bottle of champagne, the food from dinner, and some leftover cake boxed up and sent to our room. It was so wonderful to be able to sit down and have a meal with my husband after everything was over! I enjoyed Vintage Villas so much and could not think about getting married at any other place.

Vintage Villas truly made our wedding special. They were on top of everything from the day we booked until the day after our wedding. The location is beautiful, the staff is amazing, the food was delicious and I felt like we got a lot of bang for our buck. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch because of all the services they offer standard with the wedding. I can't thank them enough for helping make our day so special.

Vintage Villas far exceeded my expectations. We had a wonderful wedding that was fun filled and beautifully scenic. I grew up in Austin and really wanted our wedding to be out over Lake Travis. Vintage Villas has an onsite hotel so guests didn't have to drive after which really made the party better. Their staff was wonderful and even put guest bags I made in everyone's rooms before they checked in. The food was excellent and everyone was raving about it. You really can't beat the view and natural elegance of the venue. There isn't a whole lot onsite for guests to do, but they have a deal with a gym 5 minutes away so you can go for free. The only thing they don't have is a pool, but to have that I would have had to spend an additial $10K for the Lakeway Resort and Spa. Nobody even missed it with all the wedding activities going on! We absolutely loved our night and having villas to only our guests. I couldn't say enough good things for the value you get for your money and the beauty and style of the venue! The site coordinator, Samantha was absolutely wonderful and easy to work with. Book early so you can get your date!

Wow! What an amazing night we had! I can’t say enough great words about this venue. The site itself is beautiful and doesn’t need a lot to decorate. This makes for easy planning. They provide a great list of vendors who have all worked together before and know how to run a wedding. It was perfection. I was so nervous planning a wedding, but they made it a breeze. Erin, our coordinator, was fantastic. Always professional, kind and encouraging. She answered emails promptly and always had great suggestions. The day of the wedding, I couldn’t believe how smoothly things were going. My husband and I had a wonderful ceremony and reception. We had BBQ and it was delicious! We stayed in the wedding suite the night of the wedding. When we got in they had boxed up food, cake and champagne waiting for us. It was a perfect way to end the night. Thank you so much for making our wedding perfect!

I had my heart set on a scenic wedding by the lake and Vintage Villas was the perfect place for that! The ceremony site is breathtaking! Another plus is that the reception room is right there so guests just walk over after the ceremony. It has two rooms that are both beautiful! You can also use one of those rooms as the backup room if your wedding day is rainy.
Another great feature is the villas they have located on site. This way, all of our guests were able to stay on site after partying and drinking. Nobody had to drive the crazy roads around the lake.
I was also blown away by their service! As a bride, I didn't want to worry about anything the day of my wedding. I didn't have a wedding planner so Vintage Villas steps in to kind of take that place. Erin helped us before the wedding and responded so fast any time I had questions about the venue. During the wedding she was in charge of the timing for the ceremony all the way up to our dinner. Then, a new timeline coordinator stepped in who was fabulous! She watched the groom and myself all night and if we looked like we were looking for someone or something she would come to our aid so we didn't have to worry. We also had a limo take us to our hotel that night and they had food, cake and champagne in our limo for us in case we didn't get much to eat during the actual reception. She took care of EVERYTHING. And brides, this is what you want! You don't want to have to be worrying about a single thing on your wedding day!
Lastly, the food was fantastic! I had multiple people tell me how delicious it was and someone else told me it was the best wedding food they have ever had. I didn't get to eat much but what I did eat was great!
The only negatives (which weren't that bad..) was that they can only fit about 150 in the room for the reception dinner. Even with 150 it was a little tight. Also, during the ceremony (we got married in the evening) the sun sets right behind the ceremony, which is beautiful, but it also makes it hard for the guests to see (make sure they know to bring sunglasses!).
Overall it was fabulous and I was very happy with every part of it! I would highly recommend this place!

We just had our wedding at Vintage Villas and it was like a dream. Lauren was just spectacular throughout the whole planning process. We met her when we had a tour of the venue and just fell in love with her. She is such a sweet person and very professional. She responds quickly to emails and just made our wedding run smoothly. Vintage Villas was beautiful and the views are amazing. Chef Steve made some super yummy food and all our guests agreed that it was one of the best wedding meals they've ever had. Kavon our bartender was great with guests and was very accommodating to requests from our partying guests. Mr Reza made the bridal party feel at ease and kept checking on us throughout the ceremony to see if we were needing anything. The entire Vintage Villas staff was just phenomenal and we could not have asked for a better venue and staff.
We also stayed at the Vintage Villas hotel and our wedding suite was GORGEOUS. There were views of the lake, a large living area with full kitchen. This room was so impressive that we're already planning on coming back for our 1 year anniversary. Again, we had the best time and were so happy with how our wedding turned out. I cannot say enough great things about this venue and its staff. Our experience there was just wonderful and our guests agree.

Our experience with Vintage Villas was amazing! Not only is the venue and hotel area absolutely gorgeous, but they have the kindest staff ever. Erin was my contact the whole way, and she was sweet and so helpful and made sure everything would be perfect and ready to go. Our reception coordinator was on point, she was super nice and thanks to her I didn't have to think about what was going to happen next, or what time we needed to do something - she took care of everything so I could have fun and enjoy the night. The whole experience was wonderful, all of guests were so impressed with Vintage Villas and could not stop saying how beautiful and great everything was. When my husband and I got back to our room later that night, they had delivered some of the food we had at the reception in case we were hungry, and had laid out rose petals and champagne for us - which was really special and unexpected! Thank you so so much for everything, and for going the extra mile for us!!

I had my wedding here in Nov 2012. It was absolutely gorgeous overlooking the water. Lauren Allen is amazing and made my dreams come true on our special day. All of the staff (including hotel staff, Kristie) is great, friendly, and willing to help no matter how much or little drama there is while planning a wedding. This venue is perfect since your ceremony,reception,and over night stay is located all in 1 place! Your guests won't have to worry about drinking too many beers and driving home. The food and chef is outstanding and everyone said it was the best food they had ever had!! Breakfast the next morning is not your usual packaged muffins and bitter coffee, but it's an ellaborate spread of all of your favorites you crave in the morning. The hotel rooms are so adorable and feels like home with its rustic elegant touches! Lauren worked with my budget and it is very affordable no matter how many is on your guest list! I'm from Houston and the staff was able to plan the most amazing and awesome wedding even with us not living in Austin. I highly recommend this venue whether you are from here or not, you won't be dissappointed!! We will be going back for our future anniversaries.

Vintage Villas was the best decision ever for our wedding venue. We got married three days ago and I cannot stop thinking about how every detail was considered by Vintage Villas. We worked with Samantha throughout our wedding process and she was so kind and easy to work with and always answered any question we had promptly. All of our guests kept saying that the food was excellent and I was so thankful that they customized the salsa for us based on a recipe we use in our own kitchen. I highly recommend this venue and the fajita menu! Our wedding was truly a dream come true.

Vintage Villas is TOPS in my book! I seriously couldn't have asked for a better venue and staff to help me with my wedding. Everything was GORGEOUS! Things ran so smoothly from start to finish. The staff there are excellent and made my day absolutely flawless! THANK YOU VINTAGE VILLAS!!

You can't beat the lake and hill country views Vintage Villas has to offer. I had hoped and crossed my fingers all year that it would rain and the lake would fill up. Well, it didn't quite get there but it didn't matter. We also had a bit of a rainy afternoon, so we ended up having to move everything inside...still, absolutely no regrets. The inside wedding was beautiful and the sun came out just in time for some marvelous sunset and lake shots right before we went in for dinner and dancing. Vintage Villas did a beautiful job throughout the planning process and helped walk us through a ton of questions. Samantha was great! She had immense patience with us and was always super-responsive. I would book this place for any party. It has all the elements and really showcases the beauty of Austin. Thank you to Samantha and all the staff at Vintage Villas for a beautiful experience and many wonderful memories.

we were very pleased with how easy vintage villas made our planning and wedding day. everything was taken care of by our own wedding coordinator which was very helpful and we didn't have to worry about hiring someone else to do planning. we met with Samantha and as soon as my husband and i saw the property we both knew right away this was the place...we did a friday evening in september 2012 and it was the best weather! vintage villas makes everything so simple by having their own kitchen and menus to pick from. we did food tastings and also got to look at the rooms our family were going to be staying in before we actually booked a block (which the villas are right next to the reception and ceremony site) this made it very easy for our family who didn't want to stay out late to just walk next door to their rooms. anyway the view was gorgeous even with lake travis being very low in all the pictures you can still see water and the greenery and flowers around the property just pop in pictures. the food is wonderful and the service was grand. if i had to do it all over again id do it here for sure! :)

Vintage Villas accomodated all of our needs. We had wedding guests that were vegeterian and had food allergies, which they made amazing special plates for.
They include food and drinks as an entire package which made the planning much easier. All of the outside vendors that we hired had excellent things to say about VV also.
With the planning aside, the view is completely amazing from both the ceremony and reception.
Vintage Villas provides the ideal setting for indoor or outdoor weddings with a spectacular view of Lake Travis as a backdrop. We offer the finest in service and exquisite cuisine as well as wedding planning assistance to ensure that your wedding wishes come true.
