Whether you are from Austin or not (I am not), this venue gives a destination-type wedding vibe and is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I loved getting married at this venue while looking over at the lake. There are several options you can choose to hold the ceremony at, all are amazing. I love that this venue includes the food, drinks, and recommends vendors. My family loved that there are hotel rooms literally 10 feet from the ceremony site and it is perfect for your own little wedding getaway!! This venue was better than I even expected.
The staff, the food, the service, the VIEW! Vintage Villas is a fabulous event venue. They look after every detail from start to finish. Alex was our day of coordinator and worked tirelessly to make sure that our day was special and perfect. Rosemary in Sales was so helpful in reserving the venue and connecting us with all the right people. My guests were blown away by the view(best in Lake Travis). They were lining up to take pictures with the gorgeous lakeside sunset in the background. The ceremony space is spectacular(you almost don't even need decorations!). My guests also raved about the food. Who knew we would still be craving veggie quesadillas? I love Vintage Villas!
I cannot accurately describe how wonderful my wedding was here at Vintage Villas. We lucked out with the weather being beautiful and the entire night was magical. My guests enjoyed their boutique hotel experience and our out of town guests really enjoyed the views. The day of coordinator I worked with, Amy, was readily available with any questions or concerns I had during the entire planning process...and the day of my wedding was flawless thanks to her! I love the outdoors and HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone who also wants an outdoor wedding!
The food was amazing and the staff was incredible. I would make sure to put in your contract that no rehearsals can happen right before your wedding (the rehearsal before us even left a huge pile of dog poop in my ceremony site, an hour before my wedding!). Would highly recommend having a wedding planner for this facility, there is a ton they don't cover with their on site person and you'll need it or you'll be stressed to get everything taken care of.
We loved having our wedding at Vintage Villas! The views were stunning, staff were so helpful, the venue was gorgeous...it was perfect! We couldn't have been happier with our experience and would highly recommend it!
My husband and I wanted a small wedding and we were excited when we found that Vintage Villas had a great view and sectioned reception room to allow our ceremony to be as intimate as possible. That all changed a few weeks leading to our wedding day... I cannot express how disappointed I was in the vintage villas, especially Salien Maknojia. I was basically scammed at the beginning. No one mentioned that the venue was going to be under renovation during my first visit. No one mentioned it even after we had signed the papers and made 2 payments. When they finally told us about the renovation, they down played the entire thing, talking about changing bathroom tiles and adding lights. We found out 3 weeks before the wedding that the entire layout of the reception venue had been changed!!!! They had broken down walls and structures. I basically had to throw a fit to get them to fulfill the terms of my agreements. They initially wanted us to to pay for the drapery to re-section the venue. I had to confront them on their BS . I was never a "bridezilla" but I eventually had to turn into one to have our wedding venue look like what we were sold .
We wanted to book this venue, really. That's why although the reception site is still under construction, although we haven't tried out the food for the menu we prefer, we decided to trust them and go ahead and get into a contract. Then after waiting for several days, when we finally get to discuss about the details, they bring up that there's a minimum spend requirement for the date we picked, which is $7000 more than our spend estimate. The explanation is that for Saturday in that month, they're confident that they can make more money for 200 or more guest in that venue rather than serving us with only 100 guest, and only thing they can do is to find the other day with lower minimum. Prior to that, they didn't mention anything about minimum, and it's not in any of the brochure we got either. This is definitely not a surprise we're expecting, after we're so far into the process, after we stopped searching other venues and that we start envisioning what our wedding would be like there thinking this is happening. They did apologize over phone. But this is a terrible experience for us. Please make sure you ask about the minimum before you proceed with them.
Vintage Villas was an incredible place to host a wedding. Everything is conveniently located and having family and the bridal party stay steps away from the ceremony and reception was a life saver. Amy was incredible at directing the rehearsal and wedding day. Everything went so smoothly the whole weekend and the view over the lake is off charts!
Beautiful venue, great food, and very friendly staff. A few issues came up but vintage villas was willing to work with us to figure out a solution that would work. All in all the best day of my life. Thank you vintage villas for making it possible.
Vintage Villas is an absolutely beautiful venue! We had so many compliments on the venue. We are so happy we chose Vintage Villas!
I could not be happier with my decision to have THE MOST MEMORABLE DAY of my life on 9/15/16 @ Vintage Villas!!!! <3 It was SOOOO perfect!!! Not only is the Venue BREATHTAKING, the food delicious but the staff is very hands on and understand some people have more questions that others so they never seemed annoyed or bothered by possibly having to answer the same question..a few times :) lol AMY was THE BOMB.COM! Her personality and professionalism was so refreshing!! I absolutely adore her! <3 Thank you Vintage Villas for hosting the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!!
Vintage Villas is positively perfect. I couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful or well-managed establishment for my summer wedding. My fiancé and I first visited Vintage Villas in December. When we drove onto the property we immediately noticed its inherent beauty. It has an absolutely gorgeous lake view. In addition the grounds well kept, and both wedding venues are warm and inviting. Part of the beauty of Vintage Villas is the simplicity of the venues. Each one features hardwood floors and neutral walls and décor. The Event Center, where we had our wedding, also incorporates chandeliers and tulle/twinkle lights hanging from wooden beams. The outdoor space includes a patio with simple white iron furniture, trees wrapped in twinkle lights, and a gazebo covered in vines. Ultimately—because the venue was so neutral and beautiful on its own—we didn’t have to bring in much décor or worry about our chosen colors clashing with the existing hues. The staff at Vintage Villas is also wonderful. To help create, manage, and implement your event, each couple is assigned a Wedding Coordinator. We were blessed to have been assigned to Alex Middlebrook. She was phenomenal! Throughout the planning process Alex answered all of our questions and concerns within 48 hours via email. She helped us develop a layout for our tables, create a timeline for the evening’s important events, and ensure that we received the most food and drink options for our contracted price. In addition, she was able to secure a hotel suite for us—which we accessed at 10:00AM on the day of our wedding. Thanks to the staff and gorgeous location, our wedding day was like living in a dream in which all of your needs and wants are met before you even realize that you have any. Our ceremony was breathtaking and our wedding coordinator ensured that it ran smoothly so that we could focus on each other and the momentous occasion. Our reception was fun, well organized, and well staffed. Throughout and after the event, guests raved about the food that Vintage Villas provided. They were also impressed by the Vintage Villas s’mores bar, which we included as a late night snack! When it came time for our sendoff, our coordinator made sure that every guest had a lit sparkler. The evening officially ended when my husband and I arrived in our hotel suite, which had been stocked with three takeout containers of food from the event (including an assortment of our wedding cake flavors) and a bottle of champagne with two glasses. We highly recommend Vintage Villas to any couple. They are welcoming, well organized, and have incredible facilities and grounds. For us, all of our dreams came true here. I am sure they will do the same for many couples to come.
Our Vale renewal this past Wednesday couldn't had been any better! The staff, food, view and services were amazing threw the whole process. I would recommend this site to anyone and would definitely visit once more.
I highly recommend this venue!! We had an outdoor wedding in the gazebo gardens at Vintage Villas in May, and it was everything we hoped it would be and more. VV is a gorgeous venue, the staff are wonderful, and we feel we got an excellent value for the cost. We worked with Shelby in the beginning, and then we worked with Jenna on all the wedding details and on coordination the day of. Both ladies were extremely friendly, courteous, responsive, and reliable. We had excellent communication throughout, and they went above and beyond to help us make our dream a reality. I asked a million questions throughout, and they were very patient and informative. There was one misunderstanding about the beverage charges which was quickly cleared up once i pointed out a discrepancy in two different price quotes. Also, the day of the wedding there was a table missing where there was supposed to be one on the setup diagram, but the staff quickly fixed the issue once it was pointed out. Out of all the million wedding details, I could not believe those were the only issue that came up with the venue, and I was impressed with how professionally they resolved these issues. Working with VV was one of the most delightful and least stressful parts of the wedding, and I am so glad we went with them! Thank you for being such an important part of our special day!
I cannot say enough about how great it was to have our wedding at Vintage Villas. Ours was a small wedding held at the Arbor and the reception was in the Travis Room. Being small, the planning and details were easy to work out and our planner (Jenna) was great from beginning to end. We had so much fun going to the tastings, which were like mini date nights, complete with champagne. We ended up choosing the Regale menu, with the Prime Rib and Mahi Mahi and our guests raved about the food, especially the Prime Rib (based on the tastings and our weding, I would say this is their specialty). There was rain coming in on our wedding day and VV let us hold off making the call on whether to move inside until the very last minute. Since the Arbor is covered, we were able to hold the ceremony outside with the rain at just a light sprinkle. It was perfect and the views cannot be beat anywhere in Austin. It was so great having our guests stay with us at the Villas. We were able to continue the party a little longer that night and all have breakfast together the next morning. And the staff was great from our very first visit right through breakfast. Definately recommend this venue to any bride.
Vintage Villas is a beautiful place to get married but I don't recommend this place if you're looking for a more cost efficient venue. This venue likes to charge for every little thing (such as cake stand, easel, etc) and double book weddings in one day so you'll barely have any time to do any setting up for your wedding or to take pictures before guests start arriving. Despite the beautiful wedding I had, I'm giving Vintage Villas 2 stars b/c of some negative experiences I had with them during my wedding planning process and my wedding day. I originally had a wedding coordinator named Jenna. She was so nice and I really liked her until I saw her again at the bridal extravaganza. I went up to her to ask some questions while I was there. She of course didn't recognize me or knew that she was my wedding coordinator. That didn't bother me but what bothered me was that she acted as if I was being so bothersome for asking her questions and had a bad attitude. Although I was the only customer there at the time, she acted as if she just didn't want to help out at all. A few months later, I found out that my coordinator changed to someone else named Alex. When I met Alex, I was so glad she became the new coordinator. I've had a very good first encounter with her and every time I spoke with her up until my wedding, she was so sweet and helpful. After the wedding was done, I was shocked to hear from my bridesmaids that Alex was being rude to them and wasn't helping out with anything or even seemed like she wanted to help when the most help was needed from her. My bridesmaids described Alex as rude and most of the wedding, nowhere to be found and showed up to my wedding an hour later than promised time. It was very disappointing to hear what was really happening behind the scenes.
My husband and I were married here on May 21, 2016, and Vintage Villas went above and beyond for our special day! Our wedding coordinator, Alex, was incredibly responsive throughout the entire planning process, which was helpful because I was planning from 8 hours away! She truly cared about my desires. I was pretty laid-back as a bride (or at least I'd like to think so!), but she was insistent on making sure I had what I wanted. I saved tons of money on a florist, because the landscape and view for our outdoor wedding were spot-on. We were looking for something small and intimate, so we booked the Arbor which was recently renovated and perfect for exchanging our vows! The Travis Room has an INCREDIBLE view, so book that over any of the other rooms. The food is AMAZING, so you can rest assured in that area. I also believe the cost is fair. I looked at NUMEROUS places, and chose VV for the sights it offered and affordability. I gave VV 4/5 stars for a couple of reasons. First, the price I just mentioned included MANY options, one of which was access to the sound system in the Travis Room. We had a morning ceremony and a brunch reception. We did not hire a DJ because of how low-key our event was, so we were counting on that sound system. I was also clear about this with the wedding coordinator. On the day of the wedding, we used a family member's portable speaker for the ceremony and it is a good thing we had it because none of the staff could figure out how to work the sound system in the Travis Room! The portable speaker was all we had throughout the entire reception for all of the traditional dances and background music. I was totally not a bridezilla about it, because I never intended the reception to be a wild party (we rented a party bus that night to go out downtown, so that was the real party!), but I do find it a bit odd that we paid for an amenity that we did not receive. Alex, our wedding coordinator, was incredibly apologetic and I do not blame her or hold any resentment about it! I just find it strange that it wasn't made a priority since I was clear about needing the sound system. Oh well, my wedding day was AMAZING and that was just a small hiccup. There was also miscommunication about the breakfast the next day, but she rectified it the best she could. Alex was really great! Second, the hotel could probably use a little bit of updating. I found it incredibly charming and my husband and I had the best room on the whole property having rented out the entire East Texas Villa. We had the suite on the third floor which was the perfect place to get ready for the wedding. However, there are some stains around the building and on the walls. I think one of my guests had water stains on their ceiling or something, and another had a shower that didn't drain so the water built up around their feet. My mother stayed in the handicap room in the South Texas Villa, and she said the room wasn't actually very accommodating for her disability. I never actually saw it myself, so I cannot further comment. They were also annoyed the television was broken for their entire stay, but I'm glad it was because it forced them to get out and see Austin! The breakfast is also very simple, nothing to write home about. All in all, this was the right spot for my wedding and I do not regret it one bit. We almost eloped and, instead, gave in to family pressures to have the wedding. I am so glad we traveled in from New Orleans to have it here.
If you are looking for a destination type of wedding, this is it, without having to leave Texas! We loved Vintage Villas. We were sold to book after touring and seeing the great packages for both the ceremony/reception. Being on a budget, this venue worked well for us. With the gorgeous view, there wasn't much of a need for elaborate decor. The sales coordinator was great and professional throughout all of our communication. The staff and service was superb on the day of. Everyone raved about the food. We blocked a villa for both of our families and I loved how private it felt. My husband and I recommend Vintage Villas.
I recommend Vintage Villas to anyone getting married in the Austin area! From the wedding center to the staff to the hotel, Vintage Villas was a wonderful venue for my reception. Throughout the planning process, the wedding specialist that was assigned to me was always just an email or phone call away. It didn't matter if my wedding was 11 months away, she would still respond within 24 hours. Amy was my wedding specialist, and she was wonderful! I could not be more pleased with her work. She's down-to-earth and sweet, but also sharp and smart. She made me feel comfortable enough to voice my concerns or issues but also displayed confidence that she could manage my event. Actually this was true of all of Vintage Villas's staff from the wedding center staff to the hotel staff, and it is exactly what you want when you're planning a big event like a wedding. Also, the venue and boutique hotel were very accommodating. I had several special requests and Vintage Villas went out of their way to fulfill each and every request, which included adding an extra guest an hour before a tasting, a customized menu, rearranging guests rooms from the hotel block, providing gluten-free meals for some guests, etc. On the day of the wedding, the wedding center was set up perfectly, the bartenders and servers were friendly, and the food was delicious! Our guests raved about the beautiful views, the different rooms (sunset and lakeview rooms), the food, the bartenders, etc. At the end of the night, like other reviewers, my husband and I found boxes of hors d'oeuvres, dinner, cake, and a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. In the end, I could not have asked for a better venue. If you want a venue that will make you feel special from the start of the planning process to the very end, then book Vintage Villas. You won't regret it!
Had the time of our lives the week of our wedding. Vintage Villas was the PERFECT venue, having everyone on staying so close was wonderful. The service was impeccable and I couldn't have been happier. Jenna and the entire team did a wonderful job!
The venue is absolutely amazing. Our wedding couldn't have been more perfect. The view, the layout, the food...everything was outstanding.
My husband and I cannot say enough about how much we loved having our wedding at Vintage Villas!! We are THRILLED with our decision to get married there. First of all, the entire place is GORGEOUS. The views are amazing, so our outdoor wedding was unbelievably beautiful. Our guests (who were mostly from out of town) raved about how pretty Austin is and I was asked multiple times if Vintage Villas is where everyone in Austin tries to have their weddings. The interior rooms are beautiful, too, so our reception was as lovely as the ceremony! The staff is also completely incredible. They answered SO many questions, were very accommodating, and helped us through the entire process. Jenna, our day of coordinator, made sure everything went smoothly. We didn't have to worry or stress about anything! I'm not kidding- the entire day was perfect. And my husband and I honestly had very little to do with that! We were able to relax and enjoy the whole day because everything was taken care of for us. Jenna went above and beyond through the whole process, but especially on our wedding day- she even bustled my dress before the dancing started! The food and drinks were amazing- our guests made sure to tell us how much they enjoyed dinner. And we blocked off an entire villa since our friends and family were coming from out of town, which meant that we got a free honeymoon suite! The staff also provided us with leftover dinner, cake, and a complimentary bottle of champagne. It was so fun to have everyone in the villa together- it made the entire weekend a celebration and made us feel like we were having a destination wedding. Again, I cannot praise Vintage Villas enough. We feel like we chose the BEST venue in Austin and would not change a single thing about our wedding day! It was perfect! I would recommend Vintage Villas for anyone getting married in the Austin area!
As mother of the bride I planned and selected Vintage Villas (VV) for my daughter’s wedding ceremony and reception. I was assisted by Jenna Windham of VV, with the planning, menu, ceremony timeline and vendor suggestions. Although I do not live in Austin, nor did any of our guests, the planning was primarily done via email and two on-site meetings. Our wedding day was fabulous, our guest raved about the lake view, the food and those that stayed at the Hotel love the view and location. Jenna worked with me every step of the way, including vendor and food selections. The food was great, beautifully prepared and served. The food displays were as pretty as the pictures in the brochures. Tables and our reception room was elegantly set-up, from the table linens to the place settings – our decorations complimented the tables perfectly. I highly recommend Vintage Villas Hotel; it’s relaxed, peaceful and located at the top of a hill with a spectacular view of Lake Travis. All our rooms had a beautiful serene balcony overlooking the grounds of the venue with the Lake view as a perfect Texas back-drop. Thanks VV for a fabulous memorable wedding!
Vintage Villas was the perfect place to have our wedding. My husband and I visited a few places in the Lake Travis area and Vintage Villas was by far the most beautiful place. Vintage Villas met all my expectations of a "perfect wedding." The venue includes an outside ceremony and inside reception, walking distance hotel for wedding guests, delicious food, open bar, tables, chairs, linens and etc. The day of our wedding, the weather was perfect, the food was delicious and the VV staff was so helpful. All our guests raved about how beautiful our wedding was. I highly recommend Vintage Villas! Jennifer Martinez Wedding: February 27th, 2016

I just got married at Vintage Villas this past Sunday and it was the stuff dreams are made of. We were worried about the rain, but it cleared up and we were able to have it outside. The views were breathtaking. The food was some of the best I've ever had. All the guests raved about the venue, the view, the food, the everything. Our wedding coordinator Jenna made sure everything ran smoothly and I definitely feel like we got more than we paid for. I am extremely happy with our decision to go with Vintage Villas, and can't wait to see all the gorgeous pictures.
