About Steve and Wendy Hames

For the last 25 years I have worked in the meeting and travel industry. I've stayed and inspected hundreds of resorts and fine hotels around the world. Quality and attention to details has always been important to me. Unlike most vacation rental properties my wife and I make sure that our cottage is always in a five star condition. We believe no one will ever leave our property disappointed.

Steve and Wendy Hames purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Steve and Wendy Hames chose Jonestown

After years of traveling around the world we decided that the beautiful Texas Hill Country and Austin was the place we want to be. There is so much to do in the Austin and Hill Country area. The people are friendly and fun to be around. We enjoy ourselves so much that we purchased 5 acres next door where we are ready to build our full time home and keep our Cottage for vacation renters.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage is unique situated with only 1 neighbor. It's surrounded by forests, hills, creeks, and the walking, hiking & biking trail system. The Cottage is great for those that want beauty, views and quietness. We think it's the best!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect Family Vacation and Wedding

  • 5 of 5
We decided to rent in The Hollows because our daughter was getting married at Villa Antonia and this resort area was located so close to the venue. Our party consisted of my husband and I, my daughter and her husband and their seven month old baby and golden retriever and my other daughter the bride to be. It was just perfect. Each of our groups had their own bedroom with their own bathroom. This home is completely stocked with more than enough linens, all kitchen needs for eating and entertaining at home and very comfortable furniture and beds. Nothing is missing. We enjoyed the deck off the back of the house each evening or in the morning for breakfast. The resort area where the pool is was perfect for all of us and we spent the hot days there. While the pool restaurant was not open all week it was open for the long weekend and served up great drinks and great food.
There is a small supermarket located within a couple of miles and if you choose you can go into Cedar Park for even more choices. Just a fifteen minute drive away. As I mentioned we brought our dog and there is an enclosed gated area for her so we did not have to worry about letting her out. Austin is about a half hour drive away and we took advantage of some of the night life and sightseeing but it was definitely nice to come home to this relaxing place. We would definitely recommend this home at the Hollows and are hoping a return visit is in the future for all of us.

Great place to stay!

Great place to stay! Very accommodating and the house is as described. All possible kitchen needs are covered. We've stayed in other rental houses that were more expensive but not as good.

Great Stay

We had a wonderful time here. The owner was very thorough in providing information about the area. The house as everything that you need and it is beautiful. The swimming pool and lake are just a quick drive from the location.

awesome place at the Hollows...

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (from Houston) stayed at this home for five nights, and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The cottage was very kid (and dog) friendly. I have two kids, a 13 month and a 3 year old, and they were comfortable and loved it. The place is very spacious and included all the modern enmities one would at home. In fact, it was a home away from home. The package included a pass to the club house giving access to the facilities at the development which included a pool, workout and BBQing facilities, and a small restaurant/grill that served affordable light meals and drinks. We have plans to return at the end of the summer and this winter. Indeed, it was an awesome getaway from the hot and humid monotony of Houston. Moreover, the owners were very polite and helpful.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
I am in love with the back deck and the gorgeous round table and comfy chairs! The morning cup of coffee out there was my favorite part of the day and hearing the whippoorwill at night was a real treat. I haven't heard one since summer church camp when I was a kid!

One of the main reasons I picked this cottage was the beach club and it did not disappoint.Beautiful pools, and the restaurant and bar were open - service was great. We rented a pontoon boat one day and found a couple of good swimming coves. Had dinner at the Gnarly Gar one night (live music too) and saw a TON of deer, especially a bunch of fawns on the drive over there. The walking paths were great - we still had a lot more to explore! Use the gym at the beach club too - very nice facilities and equipment.

Good to have the wifi, as both my son and hubby needed to do a little work while we were there. The grill area was nice to use too. Cooked on it several times. Kitchen is wonderfully stocked with dishes, appliances, everything you could need. The house is SO beautifully appointed. The whole family had a wonderful time! Hope to be back some time!

Cottage was awesome/ resort not so much

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is very comfortable and nicely furnished with pretty much everything you need. It is definitely a higher end feeling kind of place with little touches that are fun, like an over sized master shower.They have an area set aside for a dog that is convenient and bringing our dog made the stay even more fun.  We give the cottage a solid "A"

The only disappointment was the amenities at the club house- neither hottub were hot or working, one was drained completely and the other was dirty.  The club house grill was only open limited hours during spring break which was kind of surprising.  We expected more activities at the club area but the only thing available to kids was a sand volleyball pit which the kids had to wait for.  A basketball goal and a table tennis table or two would have been nice to have as a distraction for the kids since the hot tubs weren't working and the regular pool water was too chilly.  Kayaks and small watercraft weren't immediately available at the marina.

Our stay at the cottage , however, was great.  The firepit was fun and gas grill worked great.  The deck is nicely furnished with high quality patio furniture that made adult relaxation easy to accomplish.  It is quiet and scenic-the owners clearly take good care of the home and don't skimp on quality.

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a great review of our Cottage. We will always do everything possible to make it feel like home.

Sorry that all the swimming facilities weren't in full operation in March. The full operation of the Beach Club started in April and it's beautiful. The hot tub is now hot and relaxing. You had a great idea to have a basketball goal and table tennis available. I'll pass that on to the Property Owners Association.
