About M. Beseda

We live in Austin, Texas We have always loved beautiful properties with great views. When we first saw this property we believed it had one of the most incredible views around plus the benefit of being on the lake. The property was in rough shape, so we have spent the last 3 years restoring it. We take pride in sharing this beautiful property and do our best to make sure our guests are comfortable.

M. Beseda purchased this villa in 2007

Why M. Beseda chose Buchanan Dam

The main house and apartment sits on a hill overlooking the lake and the grounds. There is a gentle tiered walk down to the lake frontage where you are greeted with stone patios, walkways and a picnic area. The property has a huge jetty tha extends into the lake and when lake levels are up you can fish off of it. Lake Buchanan is the largest lake in the Highland lakes chain and feeds Inks, LBJ, Marble Falls and Lake Travis. Buchanan is not a constant level lake, it goes up and down. We are in the deep end of the lake so lake levels don't affect us as much and the view remains outstanding no matter what the lake level is. We do have a boat ramp on the property and the property is situated in such as way as to great a small cove along the lake shoreline. There is a hill country sandy beach.

What makes this villa unique

The view is absolutely amazing and it's hard to capture in photos. Large main house has over 7000 sq ft and apartment bulding next to it houses a rec room and 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is studio style and adjoins the kitchen. The property can easily handle business or church groups and family reunions. There are many areas on the property where you can get together as a group or walk around for privacy. We only lease this property one group at a time, so you are not only renting the main house and apartment but also the lake frontage, jetty, boat ramp and all of the 10 acres,

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed the home so much. Great place to relax and enjoy the view of the lake. Great place for our large family gathering. This is an awesome house!

Wonderful family time!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have found a more wonderful place to have our whole family together. The spacious house, view, volleyball, disc golf, were all completely wonderful. Thank you, thank you!

Absolutely beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

For a large family, like mine, this house was perfect! We liked all the space it offered and loved that every bedroom has it’s own bathroom! The views were gorgeous and the weather for our trip was perfect! The kitchen was a great size and the back deck was big enough for our entire group, which was about 20 people.

Annual Lake Trip

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 couples have been going to Lake Buchanan for 19 years. We have stayed at various resorts until we stumbled across this gorgeous property. The owners are so welcoming and make sure we have everything we need. The home is fully stocked for large groups, the views are the best on the lake, and the grounds (10 acres) are beautifully landscaped. Planning a trip for 20 people is similar to herding cats, but this property makes my job much easier. We can't wait to go back next year!!

This is a "Knock-Your-Socks-Off" property from the minute you drive up- a STUNNING landscape and property overlooking the lake. It was spacious in every aspect (parking, bedrooms, kitchen, table, decks, landscape, water area, etc.). We rented the Buchanan Villa for a work retreat and there was not a detail short of perfect. We had everything we needed (kitchen supplies, bathroom supplies, towels, blankets, etc.) plus a bonus splash of fresh flowers throughout.

I was slightly concerned about the one review that mentioned a strange smell in the apartment. I am happy to now share that my sensitive nose didn't smell anything unpleasant- not in the apartment or anywhere. This house was perfect.

Marsanna was literally a text away (immediate response) for any question or concern.

It was hard to leave on the last day. Thanks to Marsanna and her family for sharing this amazing place with others and for making it 5-star perfect.

16 guests. 16 smiles. 16 ready to return. A++

Beautiful Paradise on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the opportunity to spend our annual lakehouse vacation here at this lovely home. We had everything we needed as far as the amenities and supplies, there was plenty of space, especially bedrooms and baths. I cant say enough about the hospitality that was given by the owner, Marsanna. I really appreciate her loaning her beautiful home to us so that we could make everlasting memories.

A group of 24 had a wonderful time on Lake Buchanan! HUGE property that was very well stocked!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family gathering at this beautiful property!! Here are the pros:

-HUGE PROPERTY! Between the two houses (which are almost adjoining, so it didn't break up the group at all), there is enough bed space for 24 ppl, and the indoor and outdoor space really gave us room to move around and have fun without feeling cramped. All 24 of us fit on the dining table, as well as the huge deck. There is also a huge sprawling green space in front of the cabin with a volleyball net. Perfect for our day of family olympics!

-The views of the lake and surrounding area was beautiful, which could be enjoyed even from inside the main house.

-Very well stocked! You will probably find any utensil or kitchen equipment you can think of , as well as a large supply of cleaning products and towels which were very helpful. The smaller house was also so much fun for the kids to enjoy with foosball, shuffleboard, pool, and a kitchen for late night munchies.

-water activities were also a lot of fun and really added to the experience! We fished off of the pier (many local bait and tackle shops close by), spent many hours in the nice and cool beach (a little inlet where the boat ramp is), and rented a pontoon and jet skis for a day. We HIGHLY recommend a local company by the name of Wave Chasers Boat Rental for your jet ski/boating needs! Josh and Dustin were wonderful, accommodating, and really gave us a great price!

-Wonderful owners who gave us a very heartwarming welcome and were there to greet us as we arrived. They were so accommodating and responded to our questions and queries quickly and generously.

We highly recommend this property!! We left with a lifetime of memories and wish the same for all future guests!
