About Andrew Cox

We are a lively couple who decided to start our guest house in the home next to ours. We had the idea one night and two months later we opened for business. We spend a majority of our time away from our normal job working on the ranch and enjoying the peace and quiet of the country. We will always respect your privacy; however, if you want to chat and have a drink together we would love to do so. If you ever need anything, please let us know.

Bonnie has deep roots in the San Marcos/Kyle area, and this property has been in her family for more than 4 generations. She is a graduate of Southwest Texas University, now Texas State, and majored in Sociology. She loves to get to know people, and you will love talking to her. She has spent time in Germany and loves to work on her Deustch when she has a chance.

Andrew is originally from Fredericksburg, TX and found himself in the Kyle area after leaving the active duty Army in 2004. He is a graduate of Texas Tech and majored in Business. He shares Bonnie's passion and love for the land and calls the ranch his 'happy place.' You will often see him on the tractor and working on the property. He is also a people person and can grill the best steaks in Texas. Andrew also has a daughter that you may see. Natalie is the light of our lives and she loves her home with us on the ranch. You might even get to enjoy some farm fresh eggs from her chickens if we have a surplus!

We would love to share our little piece of happiness with you! Come join us on the ranch and we guarantee you will want to stay here again and again.

Why Andrew Cox chose Kyle

The Ranch and H Heart - The ranch is a small piece of what it used to be. All of the area around us and even up to Roland Lane was owned by several sides of the family (Hughson, Rowland [Roland], and Conway). Through the generations the land was swapped, split, or sold leaving us with this 125 acre track that we call home. We hope to continue the tradition and pass it on to a 5th generation in the future.

The name “H Heart” comes from the family brand. Cecil Hughson, Bonnie’s great-grandfather known by her as “Pop,” was a Kyle area cattleman for many years. The love for the land, farming, and ranching, continued in the Hughson blood line. Bonnie’s grandfather, Papa, also raised cattle. He was known in the local area for another reason; baseball. “Tex” Hughson pitched for the University of Texas at Austin and the Boston Red Sox in the 1940s. Stanley, Bonnie's father, followed in the family footsteps. He farmed this land and raised cattle and goats on it until his death in 2009.

What makes this house unique

As we mentioned above, the porches are amazing and we enjoy them as much as we can. Our past guests have really enjoyed them as well. Although we are close to the city, if you are in the back yard you would never know it. The property just has a great, peaceful, calming ability that can't be explained. You have to experience it to understand!

Thank you home Away

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and spacious. Very clean, great service and unexpected amenities! I was skeptical at first when I reserved the house especially the cost. But after staying there it was worth every cent. My sisters came in from out of town for the wedding and I was in and out. They really enjoyed sitting on the patio and relaxing in a home instead of a hotel. They also saw some wildlife in their natural habitat. I forgot to sign the guest book but I would recommend this house to anyone needing to stay in this area. Thank You!!! Dave Fisher Killeen, TX

Great location for Kyle wedding and plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

This home is comfortable and spacious. It was a great location and gathering place for friends and family celebrating our son's wedding weekend. There was an enclosed porch we used to assemble the wedding flowers which was perfect. Andrew even set a work table up for that purpose. The kitchen was missing some things we needed, but Andrew provided what we requested( he's next door and addressed our needs immediately. While the property met our needs and is nice, it is not a luxury rental.

Great gathering place - comfortable and convenient

  • of 5

The HHeart guest house was our base camp for our son's wedding weekend at Texas Old town. It was a great place for friends and families to meet - we served several large meals there and used the back enclosed porch to assemble the wedding flowers. Andrew was responsive when we requested things we needed. The owner was next door, but we had lots of privacy. It.

became our home away from home and really made our weekend special with lower stress.

Perfect home away from home for our son's wedding!

  • 5 of 5

The house was the perfect place for our family to spend the weekend of our son's wedding at The Winfield Inn! The property was furnished with everything we needed, and the hosts were very accommodating to our request for a late checkout so that we could host a brunch for friends before leaving Sunday morning. The open floor plan and the pretty back porch made it a nice place to entertain. The house was also a short drive to San Marcos where we hosted our rehearsal dinner. I would recommend this house for weddings or any other family event in that area!

Wonderful Place

  • of 5

The H Heart Guest House was absolutely perfect! It was fully stocked with everything we could have possibly needed, plus a few added surprises :) For 11 days, it served as our home base as we hosted family and friends from across the country and even "the pond" (UK) to help us celebrate our daughter's graduation from Texas State and her wedding, the next weekend. We highly recommend this for your stay in Kyle or the surrounding area.

The place was far above my expectations!

  • of 5

I could not believe how nice it was and how well suited for the wedding venue support. I had a room that was just inside the garage to put all the wedding items in the air conditioning and had tons of room for everything we had to manage for the weekend. My mother was recently critically ill and the place was so close to the venue that I was able to keep her involved in the events but get her to a place to rest easily during all the events. Thank you for the providing the opportunity.
