"If we were to get married all over again, I would without a doubt choose this venue again. Vintage Villas and our wedding coordinator were amazing from beginning to end. I was impressed from the very first email. The response was almost immediate and very informative. When we went out to look at the space, we fell in love! Our out-of-town guests were able to stay onsite following the wedding at the hotel and the event staff the day of were meticulous, attentive, and on-time. Compliments about the food didn't stop for days after the wedding. A Vendor. Highly Recommend!"

This was the best venue to work with. They made everything extremely easy. On the day of my wedding, I feel like everything just magically appeared. Everything ran very smoothly. At the end, there was cake, champagne and two boxes of dinner in the honeymoon suite. Which was great because we were starved. If I had to do my wedding over again, I would pick this venue hands down. No regrets and there is nothing they could have done better.

I can't say enough about this venue and the staff at Vintage Villas. Erin is great! It was a beautiful location, at an affordable price. All of my guests made it a point to tell me how much they loved the location. The food is also something to note; it is very good! The staff is very accommodating, and flexible when things (such as the weather) don't go as planned. I would recommend this venue to anyone!

We could write a book about how amazing the Vintage Villas was. Lauren, the wedding director, was simply wonderful throughout the whole process. She pointed us in the right direction from the beginning and every single step of the way. She answered any questions we had and was completely invested in us. The wedding went off beautifully and Lauren and her staff were on top of everything from the wedding to every aspect of the reception. We didn't have to worry about a thing. During the reception we had our meals brought to us, a drink in hand if we wanted one. The food was five star terrific all on its on. We were kept in the loop of all the timeline details. Everything was on point. We would recommend the Villas to any bride wanting the 'Perfect' place to marry the one she loves. And Lauren, honestly there is no one better suited to have in your corner for the most amazing day of your life.

I had my wonderful wedding at Vintage Villas and Erin and Shelby made sure that everything went perfect on our special day. Before the wedding Erin was always there for me whenever I need anything. The accommodations for the hotel were wonderful and the view is spectacular. I could not have asked for anything more. Also the food was amazing at the reception and the Travis Room as beautiful!!

We booked Vintage Villas as our wedding venue 13 months prior to our wedding and could not have had a better experience. In searching for venues, we found Vintage Villas to be among the most reasonably priced for the value and our guest count (200+). We worked with Lauren Allen as our sales manager and she did a seamless job of helping answer our questions, reassure us and keep us on schedule throughout the process. Furthermore, she was always responsive, usually answering our questions within a few hours of sending an email. We ended up with about 200 guests and on the day of the wedding, the Vintage Villas staff had everything under control- allowing us to enjoy every minute of our wedding without worrying that something would go wrong or wouldn't be handled. We were initially concerned that space might be an issue with our guest count but it turned out fine, with plenty of room for people to mingle comfortably. Our guests commented that the bars were stocked and efficient, and multiple guests told us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. We would highly recommend Vintage Villas to anyone!

They were amazing! Our representative, Samantha, was so sweet and helpful. She made the whole process easy and fun. She had great advice, worked with us to find the best answer to any problem, and didn't mind when we had to make last minute changes. The view from both wedding sites (we had the arbor) is just beautiful. The lake was a perfect backdrop to our day, birds were chirping, the grass was a vibrant green, I couldn't imagine it coming together any better.

Most of all, it was a beautiful venue that accommodated all of my out of town guests, and graced them with it's "vintage charm." I wish we could do it all again!

Our wedding was amazing thanks to Vintage Villas. From Kristi at the hotel front desk, to Lauren in the main office, everyone was super responsive and willing to work with us on pretty much everything. The Chef was super accommodating with menu tweaks we requested. All the food at the wedding was amazing… we are still getting rave reviews on apps and late night tacos. For our NYE wedding, the proximity from venue to hotel was amazing. No need to worry about over-intoxicated guests driving and the rooms are nice for the price point. Staff, food, and venue were beyond epic from beginning to end.

From the beginning, Samantha made us feel as if Vintage Villas wanted our wedding there, as opposed to the reception we felt at other venues. The value of the venue rendered the quotation for our wedding a STEAL.

Planning the wedding from Houston looked to be a challenge, but it was much easier than anticipated with Samantha's help. Samantha answered emails usually within an hour. Her answers were spot-on, detailed, and included information to address follow up questions I invariably would have. She was a dream to work with and made the entire experience pleasant.

I worked with Kristi in the reservations for our room block and she also was a dream to work with. She answered emails within the hour, gave detailed answers to questions, and made the process run so very smoothly.

The food was simply outstanding. We had a buffet and had the VV signature salad and Caesar salad, mahi mahi, beef medallions, and mozzarella and prosciutto stuffed chicken. We had potato and vegetable sides, along with the mashed potato martini bar. All of our guests RAVED about the martini bar. The presentation was perfect and the portions were just right.

The bar was perfect, as we went with the full premium open bar. We also were able to personalize the offerings per our preferred beers and liquors. The bartenders were polite and quick. We had about 100 people and two bars, but I think one would have been sufficient.

Not having planned a wedding before, I was concerned about the smaller details. All of them of service, presentation, and whatnot were flawless. The staff made us all fell as if we were the most important group on the property. Granted, we were the only event that weekend, so I cannot speak to the experience if other events also are taking place, but I cannot imagine anything "slipping."

At bottom, I would highly, highly recommend VV. It's that simple.

I hosted my wedding at Vintage Villas on 11.12.13 & there are no words in the English language to truly describe how PERFECT our wedding was! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. From the moment that I booked my wedding, everything was absolutely perfect. I worked with Sales Manager, Erin Todd, & she was a joy! Being that I chose Austin as a Destination wedding location, having NEVER been there until the weekend before the wedding, I could not have asked for a better person to work with. Erin had all of the answers I needed & totally made me feel 100% relaxed & I had total confidence in her & her staff to make it all happen. I am from Key West FL & have worked as a Catering Sales Manager/Wedding Planner for about 3 years & have seen some beautiful weddings take place, but NOTHING compares to the flawless success of Erin & the entire Vintage Villas Staff. Kristi, Rooms Director, was also a joy to work with & made everyone's stay really great. She accommodated every last minute request we threw at her & everyone enjoyed their stay. The rooms are beautiful, the beds are comfortable, & my suite was SO amazing! Perfect space for me & my girls to get ready. I also shipped a lot of stuff to the hotel for my arrival & every one of the staff members were aware of everything & promptly informed me of any deliveries & sent everything to my room promptly as well. It was flawless. The Ceremony Venue is MORE beautiful than the pictures even show. The Sunset was more beautiful than any Key West Sunset I've seen. Honestly, I don't think there is another place on the planet more perfect for a wedding. The Event Center was absolutely perfect for cocktail hour & dinner. The food was OUT OF THIS WORLD! The space was clean & in pristine condition, everything was on time, & we were catered to in every way. I felt like I was Royalty. Erin, Kristi, & the entire Vintage Villas Staff have set the bar for the industry.

Vintage Villas was a perfect place for our wedding. Everything went exactly as we hoped and the staff was a pleasure to work with. Since most of our guests came from out of town, it was very convenient having the hotel rooms available at the site so no one had to worry about finding accommodations elsewhere. We had an absolutely terrific experience.

We were blown away with what Vintage Villas provided for our wedding. Erin and her staff went above and beyond in every way possible, and then some! We've had people coming up to us or writing to say they were so impressed with the service, set up, layout and especially the food. Our luncheon menu was AMAZING and VV accommodated every request we threw at them. They worked with everything we could dream up and filled in all the gaps we hadn't even considered yet!!! I could not imagine our wedding having been more beautiful than what we were provided via VV. Once we locked in VV as our venue, there was truly nothing left to worry about! They had a beautiful built in rain plan too!! Everyone there was exceptionally friendly and professional.

Words cannot express how amazing my wedding was. It was my dream wedding that came true! From the moment we walked in there for a viewing, I fell in love! We booked it right then and there and snatched our ever so popular date before anyone could... more than a year early. Oh yeah, they are that popular for weddings.

From the very first day we secured our venue, Lauren had been so amazing to us. She accommodated EVERY single request without any questions. I'm a control freak and she knew how to help me get everything in order. I planned the wedding on my own and only hired a day-of coordinator but had Lauren & my coordinator to bounce ideas with. She's always easy to reach out to.

Comes the week of the wedding, it rained and flooded in Austin, and Lauren was ready for Plan B. The outdoor gazebo is THE dream, and thank God when Saturday came (wedding day) the sun came out and shined on me and David. All our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they've ever been to. I wish I could do it all over again. And I would definitely pick the same venue over and over and over again!

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

Vintage Villas did such an amazing job with our wedding! Our Sales Manager, Erin Todd, was so easy to work with, and she was with us every step of the way! I was a crazy emailer-- sending her all these questions, and she got back to me very quickly and efficiently. I could not be more happy with my wedding at Vintage Villas. The food was amazing, the venue is gorgeous, the staff was friendly and very fast with their service-- which was great because our timeline got behind because another vendor (not related to Vintage Villas) was late. Vintage Villas wait staff made up for lost time and served our dinner quickly (to 132 guests) yet it did not seem rushed at all. The boutique hotel staff was very helpful to me and my guests (we filled up an entire villa and half of another one with out of town guests), and everything was so comfy and well kept! Kristi Easley was very helpful with booking and answering all my questions about the hotel. I would recommend Vintage Villas to all my friends and family! I LOVED our special day!! Thank you!

The entire wedding process was fantastic at Vintage Villas. I did not have a wedding planner, except for my mom. Lauren pretty much walked us through what we needed to do. She started with helping us pick a date based on what I wanted, to being there to line everyone up for the ceremony. She was so easy and pleasant to work with. I could not have asked for better view, food, staff, presentation and overall venue. Although I never made it to the bar, everyone was very complimentary of the bartenders personality. I wasn't there for the set up or clean up either but the staff really helped my family with both. We also had a timeline coordinator, Mary, who kept us moving and was always asking if we needed anything.

Only thing I would do differently is block a building for the whole weekend. The first night our group shared with another group and I was worried that we may be disturbing them. But that was something we did and was not the responsibility of the villas.

Also, we rented a suite where the guys got ready. I would not recommend trying to have both the groomsmen and bridesmaids try to get ready in the rooms they have. It would have been way to tight. But the way we did it was perfect and it kept me separate from my fiancé the entire day. There was no concern that we would run into each other.

I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for an outdoor venue with a wonderful staff.

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.

Having our wedding at Vintage Villas was THE BEST decision ever. The place is just stunning, gorgeous view, peaceful and romantic feeling through the whole place. For me there's no a better venue for a wedding than Vintage Villas!
The food was sooo goood, the whole team is great, but the best one there is Lauren. She made our wedding process so easy and she is so great to work with. The night of our wedding she was there helping my mom, she stayed until the end of the wedding and helped us pack and clean everythin, she even put back in the box our champagne flutes and box our cake anniversary tier in the box and handed that directly to my moms hands.
Also, at the end of the night when me and my new husband went to our suite, they had champagne, a plate with the wedding food and another one with cake and a few others desserts for us!!! That was so thoughtful of them and sweet!
We really enjoyed our wedding at Vintage Villas!!

My husband and I were thrilled we chose VV for our ceremony and reception. Our event coordinator, as well as day-of coordinator, was Lauren Allen. Lauren was exceptional and went above and beyond to ensure our day went perfectly. She was incredibly flexbile when we called last-minute to add on a few guests, and even accomodated us when we found out that some of my husband's family would not be able to be at the wedding due to a death in the family.

Our event from start to finish went off without a hitch and Lauren was fantastic in keeping everything on time. The guests raved about the food and drink (we had the Banquet menu with chicken and the premium bar), as well as the venue itself, which was just stunning. My "theme" was to acheive "casual elegance" for my wedding, and VV was able to do this perfectly.

Many of our guests came in from out of town and this was a great spot for everyone to stay for the weekend. Our guests took up a full building and it was perfect because we were able to use the common area for gatherings before and after the wedding. VV staff even brought us ice buckets and large garbage can to keep in the common area since we had the whole building.

I cannot say enough great things about this venue and the people who work here. Everything was fantastic and I highly recommend them. Lauren is the BEST!!!!

Just a perfect experience for us and we can't say enough good things about Vintage Villas.

My husband and I chose Vintage Villas because of the wonderful outdoor gazebo overlooking Lake Travis. The ability to have the ceremony and reception at the same venue was wonderful. All of our guests had wonderful rooms at the Vintage Villas hotel, and we nearly booked the entire place. Lauren, our wedding coordinator, was so friendly from the moment we met her. I did not know much about ceremony/reception logistics, and she walked me through the process step by step to help me create the wedding I wanted. Having a January wedding in TX was a definite weather risk, but we wanted to get married outside. It rained the entire week leading up to the wedding day. Vintage Villas allowed us until 2pm the day of the wedding to make the call on an indoor or outdoor wedding. If that's not flexible, I don't know what is! (We had it outside!) The day of the wedding, we had an timeline manager who guided us. Everything went smoothly, and I could not have been more pleased. She would offer my husband and I and our parents drinks as the night went on, fixing my train, etc. I would recommend Vintage Villas to anyone and I believe all my wedding guests would tend to agree. AMAZING SERVICE, FOOD, DRINKS, VENUE!

The most beautiful wedding, the best food and the best view of the sunset over Lake Travis. My new husband and I are so very excited to have had our special day there.

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.

Every detail from day one has been taken care of by the wonder staff. The venue itself is absolutely breathtaking and it's beauty is matched by the service, professionalism and friendliness of the people that work there. They always say that on your wedding day at least one thing will go wrong, I am confident that since I chose Vintage Villas that advice didn't apply to me.

Vintage Villas is an amazing place to get married! We worked with Samantha and she was very professional and helpful along the way. They have several different options in pricing depending on what you want and how big or small you want to go. Everything turned out better than we could have hoped. The dinner was so good too. I had read several reviews about how good the food was at Vintage Villas and they were all correct. We got married on a Sunday and they just happened to be running a special, so we were able to save some money. The room that came with the wedding package was perfect too! It was great not having to drive anywhere after the wedding to spend the night for us and our guests.

Vintage Villas is amazing. The venue and it's views are beautiful and they make getting married easy. They provide tables, chairs, linens, plates, silverware, flower vases, etc. Many things that one would have to rent out are included with the venue rental. All you have to worry about is your flowers, band, cake and guests. It is stress free wedding planning, the coordinators help you with a list of recommended vendors, a timeline and they provide assistance during the ceremony and reception. It is worth every penny and it's a great deal. I love this place!

We just had our wedding here last weekend. Everything was perfect, including the weather. I don't think we could have picked a better venue. We were able to have the exact wedding we wanted without blowing our budget. I am actually shocked that this place does not cost more. You cannot beat the views, landscaping and services. My only complaint is that the reception flew by way too fast, but that seems to be a common problem for every couple getting married :-)

Our guests commented on how beautiful the location was and how good the food was! Everything was great. My bridal suite the night before was amazing too! Huge room, sitting room, balcony and a huge bathroom made getting ready for my morning wedding a luxury! Thanks to everyone who helped make the day special!

Our wedding was in the Arbor Courtyard and Travis Room since we had a relatively small wedding (around 70 people). Vintage Villas was the first vendor we booked (back in December 2008). They were renovating the Travis Room during our tour, so we had to use our imaginations a little bit to envision the final product. We decided it was perfect and surprisingly within our price range because they offered us the 2008 rental rate. We booked Vintage Villas immediately. They were wonderful with correspondence and replied to emails and phone calls very promptly, which made planning a wedding from New York incredibly easy. Both Samanthas were outstanding on the day of the wedding. Everything went really smoothly. The food was delicious, the view was amazing... everything was perfect. Samantha was constantly asking if we needed anything, whether it was something to drink or help find my lip gloss. Honestly, Vintage Villas knew what they were doing and the entire night went by flawlessly. I also loved the fact that they wrapped up food and cake and put it in our suite so we could eat it after the wedding. They were honestly one of the best values of the entire wedding.

dasa,

Thank you very much for Vintage Villas for your wedding and for your complimentary review. At the time of your tour I am sure that the Travis Room was less than perfect shape. We completely removed the lake side wall of the Travis Room and replaced it with a huge wall to wall window. We even contracted Austin Energy to bury the power lines to give us a beautiful uninterrupted panoramic view of Lake Travis. I also know first hand that planning a long distance wedding is challenging but you excellent organization skills assured a perfect outcome.

Thank you again for your comments and allowing us to server you. Best wishes for a very successful future.

All I can say is WOW....This venue went out of their way to make everything perfect and set the tables up exactly as I requested. They placed all of our rented linens for free, provided wedding coordination service for such a LOW price. They were better than the day of coordinator that I hired and much cheaper. The event manager really went above and beyond as well. They even packed portions of the dinner and wedding cake in beautifully decorated boxes with flowers and placed champagne and food in our room so that it was there when we arrived. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue. Every guest commented on how perfect the venue was and gorgeous the lake was. The provide free use of their vases, tea lights, mirrors, tables and plain white linens if you choose not to rent your own. chairs, silverware, dishes, glassware, decorated cake stands all included. We had around 150 guests, with a cocktail hour after the ceremony that was at this venue and reception following with open bar, and seated dinner. Separate high-top cocktail tables provided as well for the dance floor at no additional cost.

Booking Vintage Villas for our wedding was by far the best decision we made throughout the whole planning process. Erin was absolutely amazing and always extremely helpful, responsive and attentive. It was so nice to know that the ceremony, reception, catering and drinks were all handled by one place. Not to mention the added bonus of Vintage Villas providing some vital decorative pieces (votive's, vases, mirrors, linens, etc). The event center is so intimate and private - and that view! My guests couldn't stop raving at how beautiful everything was and how friendly the staff were.

Vintage Villas was absolutely amazing. Each person that my husband and I interacted with was so kind and considerate and extremely helpful. I could not imagine a better experience. The only slight issue I had with Vintage Villas had to do with the bar. You have to pay ahead for each person which I can appreciate. However, many of my guests did not drink for one reason or another so I did not feel as though we should pay for them knowing they would not drink. Again, that is the absolute only negative feeling I had about my entire experience. We cannot recommend Vintage Villas enough! The staff was completely flexible and friendly at all times. They made changes to our menu when we asked for it, they upgraded us to a suite free of charge, they gave us rooms to get ready in on the big day, and they allowed ourselves and our families to check in early for convenience sake. In addition, Samantha Botello, our coordinator was ALWAYS available and responded to any and all requests and questions immediately. The planning forms I was sent were so helpful and made me feel completely organized, which is very important to me. If I had to plan my wedding again, I would not hesitate to choose Vintage Villas.

The only thing that made me uncomfortable was that the person who handled our pre-wedding details was not the person who was in charge the whole night of my wedding. I had a different girl that I had met for the first time about an hour before my wedding and was told that after dinner she would be the one that was the "go-to girl". It might have just been me but I felt an attachment to my original girl and felt that she knew what we wanted and how we wanted things. Overall the wedding was everything I imagined. If I could change one thing it would have been to start a tad bit later since the sun was coming down right at the exact spot where it bothered our guests. Pictures show our guests using the flyer to cover the sun up so they could see. BUT, it still was a beautiful venue and the staff was amazing. I would not have chosen any other place, I picked this place out from the start and am glad we went with the venue.

We had a wonderful experience with Vintage Villas. As soon as we saw the arbor overlooking the lake and the nice event center (which would even be nice if we had needed the rain plan), we were sold. Our coordinator was Lisa, and she always answered questions promptly by e-mail and was always willing to meet in person. She also dealt with all the vendor deliveries (huge load off my mind) and made sure all the tables (reception, sand ceremony, gifts, guestbook, etc.), linens, centerpieces, etc. -- which the venue also provides -- were set up exactly like we had talked about. And the food was wonderful -- we made sure to give ourselves time to enjoy the meal before visiting with guests and they also made sure to box up cake and leftovers for both of us and put them in our room. The catering staff was attentive -- we had a waiter just for our table at the reception -- and the bar setup was good. The complimentary room on-site was very nice and so big that we easily could have had some friends come in if we had wanted them to stick around. Definitely a wonderful venue that met and exceeded our expectations!

Ms. Inks,

Thank you for your review. I appreciate the time that you invested writing these detailed comments. Having a beautiful venue with attractive outdoor and indoor ceremony options are definitely a key to our success. The Vintage Villas wedding coordinators are the best and Lisa is terrific. She listens to your ideas, pays attention to details, takes ownership and is focused on your wedding from tour to send off. I am very proud of Lisa as well as the rest of the Vintage Villas associates that allow us to be the finest in our business.

Best wishes to you and Robert and thank you for allowing us to be a part of this special day,

Two words come to mind when I think of Roxanne, my event coordinator and catering coordinator: Hard-working and wonderful. My husband and I had a pretty tight budget to work within and Roxanne did everything she could to make my wishes come true. She had great suggestions and seemed to always be a step ahead of me!
The day of she was cheerful, pleasant, and always had a smile on her face. She kept me cool, calm, and collected.

And the food!! Oh My Gosh! The food was AMAZING!! Such wonderful, professional service.

Easily a must!

My start with Vintage Villas as our caterer was rocky; everyone I dealt with was very friendly and responded to all of my emails quickly, but the company seemed to have a lot of changes going on. We began with one coordinator, who then passed us to another, who then was "moving on," so we were passed on to Roxanne. Despite this, our experience with Vintage Villas Catering To You couldn't be any better! Roxanne was excellent; she knew exactly what to do, who to call, and how to do all of it. I had no idea how to plan a wedding and thought I wanted a simple, small wedding. But it turned out there were a lot of things that I hadn't thought of, and Roxanne made sure that it was all taken care of. She worked closely with other vendors to make sure things would be perfect and was very friendly. After meeting her, all of my worries melted away. I knew she would make things work.
And the food was delicious. They had exactly what we wanted. There were several menus to choose from. We chose the Tuscan menu. The chef was very flexible with food allergies and diets of our guests and made sure to ask me before making any changes. It has been two months since our wedding and people are STILL telling me how good the food was! I had guests who use caterers often and they said they are thinking about switching to Vintage Villas because the food was so good.
I only marked down on professionalism because of the waiters at our reception. Roxanne was always in the background making sure things were running smoothly, but the waiters were not as friendly as we'd have liked. They were not rude, just very quiet and didn't smile very much!

My fiance and I had toured a dozen possible wedding venues before coming to work with the Vintage Villas. We worked with Lauren, one of their wedding coordinators and were very happy with the service we received. The Villas offered once of the most reasonably priced venue rentals and also offer catering which took one less thing off my list, which was nice. The food turned out to be excellent and all my guests commented on how delicious it was. The day-of coordinator was great at making sure all parts of the wedding happened on time and that I didn't have anything I had to worry about on the day of the wedding. They were extremely professional and very easy to work with. I would recommend the Vintage Villas to anyone planning to get married, I was extremely pleased with how our wedding day turned out and the venue did an excellent job!

I was so happy that we chose this venue! Erin our sales manager was professional and she was always there to help with any questions we had. Erin was so awesome, she was on top of things. I would forget to do something and she would send me friendly reminders, she never gave me attitude when I would forget. Kristi did our room blocks for us and she was great as well! They have staff that is well organized, they give you a break down of how everything will go which is very helpful.

The grounds are beautiful, it's everything I wanted. The venue is extremely well kept, and it perfectly accommodated all of our out of town guests. The price is very reasonable for all they offer! The meal presentation was very nice, the only thing was the brisket and chicken were dry. Other than that everything was great!

I absolutely loved Vintage Villas. The staff was amazing and so accomodating to our requests, even the most particular. They went above and beyond to help with set up and our coordinator was amazing, answering a million emails each week from me. I was dissappointed only in the hotel aspect of the location--they wouldn't give a decent rate at all for our guests so we didn't even offer it as a room block, which was a little dissappointing. But for a venue, it is a GREAT choice!

Vintage Villas responded with the following comments:

Kellie and Christopher,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and for sharing your Vintage Villas experience. We know that new brides have a “million” questions concerning the details of the wedding process and about their individual ceremony and reception. The Vintage Villas associates are focused on providing responsive personal service to our brides and each one of your wedding guests.

I am sorry that the hotel room rate did not fall within your budget. At Vintage Villas, we consider the guest rooms as an amenity that compliments the complete wedding experience. Thus we keep our rates at 15% to 25% less than our full service competitor. Every group that contracts a block of rooms for their event is offered a discount rate.

Thank you again for your comments and all the best for a long and prosperous future.

Planning a wedding is hard and stressful work, and I was looking to make it as easy as possible. Vintage Villas really came through and made this easy and provided all the things other vendors don't at a great price for the beautiful scenery. The only thing I was disappointed in was after the night was coming to an end, I couldn't find or get ahold of the event planner to finish everything. She had left for about an hour, hour and a half.

Beautifully overlooks Lake Travis! The Vintage Villas wedding coordination staff are very friendly and helpful. The Vintage Villas grounds are very well kempt and wonderful for an outdoor wedding site. Samantha, our wedding event coordinator for the Vintage Villas, was thorough and accommodating. A month before our wedding date an appointment is scheduled to determine last minute details. They made a facility diagram outlining the placement of every little detail (tables, chair, gifts, DJ, buffet, centerpieces, table cloths, etc.). They provide a small amount of decor items (vases, glass bowls, mirrors, etc.) The catering is AMAZING! The food is so beautifully presented, and delicious. I had a wonderful experience working with the Vintage Villas for my wedding day. They are worth every penny! In addition, I attended a friend's wedding at this location, and their wedding was just as excellent.

Special details: Specific months in the year cost more (they have a minimum expenditure rate). Two ceremony sites (one for smaller weddings, and another for larger weddings). Two reception buildings (one for smaller weddings, and another for larger weddings). Friday and Sunday are the cheapest. They have a military discount! Cost is reduced by hiring your own wedding coordinator (who works with the Vintage Villas event coordinator). Blocking of the villas (hotel rooms) are a separate contract (the hotel staff are just as great). Like I said, worth every penny!

I definitely recommend holding your wedding here at Vintage Villas. The views are amazing and the overnight accommodations are wonderful.
Lauren Allen was our event coordinator and she did an amazing job. Very positive and upbeat is what every bride needs when they are nervous and antsy. The room set up was done perfectly. She was willing to help with anything that we needed. Her assistant Lisa was amazing as well. I had her running back and forth to my room for some items I had forgotten/needed.

Second the food was incredible. All the guests commented on how great and carefully prepared the food was. The beef tenderloin was moist and not overdone. The crab cakes had the best flavor.

Also having an event at Vintage Villas saves time and coordination especially since all food is catered on site. We were also given two plates of food from our reception to snack on later. That was a wonderful idea!!

The hotel suite was a perfect ending to our day. .Nothing like sitting in the jacuzzi and unwinding from the whirlwind of your wedding.

My husband and I were married at Vintage Villas in mid-June 2009. Our wedding consultant was Becky Navarro, and she was fabulous. She always took the time to answer all of my questions and emails promptly. She always explained everything well. I would recommend working with her! We only rated it an exceptional value because we were married on a Sunday and paid a fraction of the price of a Saturday wedding. The way we looked at it, our wedding looked exactly the same as a Saturday night wedding, but for several thousand less. We booked the Gazebo and Events Center, the larger of the two options, and both were very clean and well kept. Everything was set up correctly and on time; their staff even puts out your rented linens. The landscaping looked very nice and the speakers and mic at the ceremony worked well. The waitstaff, bartender and facility manager were all friendly and provided excellent service. My only complaint is that you can't begin set up with your vendors and your decorations until 5:30, which was a really big time crunch to get all of the details put together. The honeymoon suite included was better than expected, too. We would definitely get married here again, were we to do it all over, and would recommend it to our friends!

Vintage Villas is an amazing place to get married. It was one of the last venues we looked at when we were venue hunting and I wish it was one of the first ones we looked at - it would have saved us so much time! The views are stunning and everything is beautiful. We got married under the main Gazebo and had our reception in the Wedding Center, with cocktail hour on the patio. The set up is great: we had dinner in the Sunset room which has a beautiful view of the sunset and provides an intimate setting for guests to chat and then we had dancing, cake cutting, and our photobooth in the Lakeview room, which is a beautiful room for a rain plan.

I found Vintage Villas to be pretty reasonably priced. They provide all tables and chairs, have their in-house caterer and bartender (which you are required to use),basic table linens, cake cutting utensils (and no cake cutting fee), and even some decor such as votives, bubble bowls, small mirrors, etc. They also provide a list of recommended vendors. We worked with Samantha during our planning process and she was always very professional and prompt in her email responses.

We were a bit worried about food options because we had very specific requests for the groom's family (vegetarian with a few extra restrictions) and it took a few email exchanges before we could settle on something. They have a very wide range of menus for you to choose from. The tasting gives you an idea of their food, but since we selected a specialized entree, we weren't able to taste it since they only provide tastings on wedding days that have your menu. We ended up choosing the Celebration menu with an additional vegetarian entree and a few passed hors d'oeuvres. Everything worked out great because we got TONS of compliments on the food! We even had time to eat dinner and their signature salad is unbelievable!! We had a final walkthrough a month before the wedding to ensure we had all of the details sorted out from dinner table set up to napkin folds to timeline, which made me feel at ease.

We worked with Kristi on our room block and she couldn't have been more helpful - I emailed and called her multiple times to sort out room reservations. We were upgraded to the suite in building 2, which was perfect for getting ready in - so much room!

The weather was perfect on our wedding day and the pictures are gorgeous. It is a bit of a drive from downtown and Eck Lane is a curvy road but it's all well worth it! Just a few things to think about for Vintage Villas - different minimums required for different months, booking a room block early (there were at least 3 weddings over the course of the weekend, including at their smaller Arbor area so rooms booked up completely), and hiring Pearl Events for coordination.

Thank you very much for your Vintage Villas review. Becky is terrific wedding coordinator, very detailed and a hoot to hang out with. I think that having a wedding on a Friday is a very conscientious value decision. At Vintage Villas we do not change our setting, service standards, quality or service team based upon price. The only difference between a Friday and Saturday wedding is the cost to you due to lower request for Friday weddings. Your sensible nature is a sure start to a very prosperous future.

This is a beautiful venue. The rental of the venue comes with a wedding planner who is incredibly helpful. She oversees the ceremony, the timeline, totally helps out in anyway you can imagine. The catering is semi-costly, but much more convenient than having to coordinate yet another element of a wedding. The only complain is the hotel room that comes with it was not as nice as I expected... no chocolate covered strawberries or anything nice like that. The towels were a joke. Haha. But overall, a great experience. Beautiful sunset, makes for great pictures... be careful with timing of service because I think half my guests were blinded by the sun.

My wedding at Vintage Villas was everything I wanted! The staff is wonderful, food is great and scenery is beautiful. It is a little pricey, but we got a lower cost food menu, which made the value for the cost more manageable. They do have a lot of detailed rules to go by, but if you are willing to read ALL the contract and fine print, then you should be fine and have a wonderfully smooth wedding!

We were really happy with Vintage Villas. Our Wedding Coordinator (every couple is assigned a personal coordinator) was awesome. She was always there to answer any and every question through all the planning. The day went really smoothly as well. Our Coordinator actually personally helped decorate, even though it wasn't in her job description. The staff really goes out of their way to make your day special. And the views of Lake Travis are absolutely beautiful! The food was really good too, and they personalized the menu for people with specific food preferences (like allergies).

These are the only nit picky concerns I had:
-They seem to be cheaper compared to other venues in the area, but check the amount of hours you are getting! It's a lot extra for another hour - and pay attention to set up time. They require that you pay for at least a half hour of set up time (which I wasn't aware of until after I paid). Guests are not supposed to arrive during this time and it's kind of useless. You can get there with the bridal party and get dressed, so I suppose that's something. Your venders are also supposed to show up during this time to set up.
-They tell you that all of your stuff must be picked up before your time is done or it will be thrown out. What they don't tell you is that they will start throwing things out half way into the day. After dinner (during the dancing), they closed off the dining room and started throwing away wedding favors we had spent all summer to make (we left them on the tables while we danced and had cake). Thankfully, most of these favors were saved by a savy guest. Make sure you have a friend or family member to watch your things so they do not get thrown out! They will throw out stuff before they are supposed to.
-We ended up being able to book very quickly (even though they were pretty full) because we decided to get married on a Sunday. If you are getting married quickly (you only have about 4 months or less to plan), getting married on Sunday will make your life a lot easier when booking venders.

Thank you very much for your evaluation and for your comments on the extras provided by the staff, coordinator and chef. We prepare all of our food on property in our immaculately kept kitchen. Even the veal stock is laboriously created on site by our Chef. We can easily adapt to custom menus and individual preferences at your wedding. We work with hundreds of vendors in Austin and they know Vintage Villas as being very organized and detail driven. They appreciate this level of professionalism. If you need extra time, please ask your wedding coordinator. We are VERY flexible with setup time as long as it does not interferer with another event. At the end of the evening we place all logo items or favors on the gift table or sign-in table. We also suggest a contact person that is other than the bride and the groom to whom we may offer any items left or collected by our staff. These items are usually walked to the contact person car or guest room. We also have a lost and found that we keep at the front desk. I appreciate that invested the time to write down the details that were critical to you. Thank you for choosing Vintage Villas on this special day.

Let me first say, Vintage Villas was gorgeous and the staff was lovely to work with from my point of view.
We hired a planner outside of VV because we do not live in Texas. After the planner and my parents visited the site and chatted with Lauren, we eventually booked with VV because we felt they had the most bang for your buck. Plus, they have a hotel on site for you and your guests! This ended up working out perfect.
The contract signing process was a little time consuming. I recommend reading every detail of your contract! The staff at VV are responsible for sales... They are friendly and professional but also run a business.
Again, we do not live in Texas so I emailed or called Lauren once or twice a month. Lauren is a doll to work with. Does she ever get annoyed, angry, or upset? Every time I contacted her with something minor or ridiculous (from what I thought) she was the sweetest thing. Our wedding coordinator and Lauren also emailed back and forth with details and always copied me on them. The hotel staff was friendly and the booking process was worry-free. The hotel staff even held our bags until our room was ready.

Special Highlights: food is delicious! We received numerous compliments about the food.The wedding package included a complimentary suite. The suite was AMaZIng and huge! An additional wedding was going in at the second courtyard around the same time and I wasn't even aware until ours ended. Complimentary breakfast for the bride and groom

A few lowlights: the hotel rooms walls are very thin. Bring earplugs if you want a good nights sleep! The villas could use a face lift.. They need better maintenance and upkeep.

The first time we went out to Vintage Villas, it was a cold and foggy January afternoon. But after looking at the venue and then spending time going through photo albums of past weddings, I fell in love. I knew this was the place I would get married. So after lots of deliberations we came to the conclusion and signed our contract. We picked a menu and had a tentative guest count and went on to plan our wedding. Our coordinator was such a great help, always just an email away with answers to numerous questions along the way. When the rehearsal day came, we were able to get everyone on the same page and use our time effectively. On my wedding day, things went smoothly for the most part. Being a person who is always late, true to my nature, I was running late to my own wedding. Our coordinator helped me get the last of my details in order so I could settle and focus on getting ready to walk down the aisle. She got the flowers out to the ushers and family members and even poured sand into containers for our sand ceremony. Now the dinner was absolutely spectacular. I still have people commenting on how it was the best food for being served buffet-style at a wedding. That is not something you hear everyday. I would recommend this venue to any bride and groom-to-be that are willing to spend a little more to have a beautiful venue at a beautiful location surrounded by those that they care most about.

In the beginning, I was pressured into picking the venue. The day after I viewed the property they emailed me and stated they had someone else looking at my date and I needed to secure it in 24 hours. Rush decision. I emailed back and forth with a representative. Sometimes she would "lose" my emails and not get back to me when a deadline was coming up. They were great with flexible payments. They allowed me to pay in multiple payments over 8 months. They attentiveness wasn't what I expected for the price that I paid. The view was beautiful. Beautiful!! Was a decent venue. The space as great. The people? Not so much. Even had trouble getting into our bridal suite the day-of. Front desk people not very friendly or attentive.

Planning up until the wedding day was smooth and they were very responsive. However, the main coordinator that I was working with had a prior engagement that she informed me of one month before the wedding and introduced me to another planner. We were taken aback by this news and wished she had informed us earlier because the wedding planner that was appointed to us later on did not respond actively during the day.
Their prices are really good, they're very flexible in layout planning and provide great catering menu. The downside mainly happened ON THE DAY. The coordinator had us go to a wedding rehearsal the day before and it was one hour before another wedding was about to happen, so we felt really bad for the bride of that friday night wedding. On saturday morning, all the tables, extra chairs, etc that we had informed the coordinator of was not there as we had expected, but my family friends helped set things up. The wedding coordinator then showed potential guests around the venue as we were setting up the venue. She also left the wedding and let the DJ take over the coordination of the wedding when the reception began, which we were not informed and surprised about. She was very passive and if it wasn't for my unofficial planner who my friend was, it would not have ran as smoothly.
They package everything really well to appeal to the bride and make you feel like you have nothing to worry about on the day of the wedding. I believe that most of the time it can be the case, however, on my wedding, they dropped the ball with a passive coordinator that could not provide on-the-dot service that we had asked for, and the coordinator switch-around at the last minute was very anxiety provoking. They also require preferred vendors only, and when we paid for open bar, the bar tender was reportedly absent for a significant amount of time which left many of our guests dry.
Overall, it's a great place that's beautiful and budget friendly and they made me feel like a valued customer up to the day of the wedding. UP TO being the key words.

We got rained on due to the lack of attention from the coordinator provided to us, last minute. The original person, that we signed contract with, left spontaneously. There was a huge lack of detail from the coordinators part and they never owned up to their lack of professionalism. I paid too much and was left with a not so fond memory of my wedding day!

Thank you for reviewing Vintage Villas.

I am disappointed to read about the problems you suffered on your wedding day. Prior to 2005 Vintage Villas used outside caterers for the weddings. Due impart to some of the problems that you pointed out in your review, I felt that we were unable to fully own the responsibility for the entire Vintage Villas experience under the outside caterer arrangement. This included the sales, coordination, food quality and services level that I expected. Thus in late 2004, with an extensive back ground in hotel catering, I decided to build a new kitchen on property and take ownership of the complete event. In this way I could guarantee the delivery of the exceptional Vintage Villas experience that we envisioned. I am sorry that this change did not happen sooner.

Our timeline coordinator (which was part of our contract with Vintage Villas) was horrible. She did not keep the timeline and she was taking pictures in our photobooth.

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 weary 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 new 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.

As always, I appreciate honest feed back about our service and appreciate the ability to respond.

Caterina had her wedding in June of 2009. In her written response to our follow up survey after the wedding she wrote, “The Vintage Villas staff was great” and responsiveness to her needs was “excellent”. She was “very satisfied” with quality of food, presentation, service, attention to detail and attentiveness of our staff. She responded; “very satisfied” with the wedding ceremony coordination, event set-up, pre-planning assistance from our wedding specialist and overall satisfaction of her wedding.

In October we performed our fiscal quarterly audit. During this audit, we discovered that the charge for her event did not go through. This was not an additional fee, but rather the actual payment for the wedding. Upon discovery I spoke to Caterina, I apologized for our error and offered alternative payment options. She first stated that she was unaware that payment was not made, but later agreed that she had not paid the bill. She declined any payment options and stated that because we had not thus far collect payment, then she should not have to pay for her wedding. We did not feel this was fair or equitable for the satisfactory service provided and acted in accordance to the mutually agreed terms of the contract to collect payment.
