About Steve Hames (469) 446-7751

You can call me anytime at 469- 446-7751 with your questions. 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. 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 Hames (469) 446-7751 purchased this house in 2007

Why Steve Hames (469) 446-7751 chose Lake Travis

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 house 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, privacy and quietness. We think it's the best!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Peaceful, scenic location with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderfully appointed cottage in a well designed resort-style community. The owners have anticipated your every need and quickly respond to questions. The beds are comfortable, but you may want to bring your own pillows if you're particular about pillows. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. Just make a grocery run and you're good to go! We used the hike and bike trails and enjoyed both. The terrain is hilly, so your biking and hiking muscles will be challenged. We spent most of our time on Lake Travis. The marina staff at Northshore Marina (private and located within The Hollows) are happy to share their knowledge about the lake, and VIP Marina (public rentals) happily ferries boats back and forth from their marina to Northshore Marina. The family is already discussing plans to return next year.

Beautiful home, beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (three generations) stayed here over the Columbus Day weekend and really enjoyed it! The home is beautiful, and the owners furnish it with very high quality items, so we were all very comfortable. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the covered patio. We even picked up some ideas for our kitchen based on the well-stocked kitchen in this home! Steve was great to work with, flexible and responsive to our needs. It was incredibly relaxing to be at the Hollows--we enjoyed our walks around the neighborhood and also our time at the swimming pools. We would definitely come back!

A few tips: if you're arriving in the evening and have plans to use the pools, you should enter the pool house address in your GPS, as the resort is very dark in the evenings and hard to navigate using a map. Also, we never saw any employees working in the pool resort area; the area was well-maintained, but if you're visiting in the off-season, you should be prepared to be self-sufficient. There's a nice area behind the pool area where you can play sand volleyball or on the playground set; you can also walk your dog along that trail (it appears to be the only part of the lake that is publicly accessible--the rest of the lake seems to be accessible by owners of the private homes abutting the lake).

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at this home for Memorial Day Weekend. It was such a beautiful place fully equipped with everything you need for a great stay. The home was very clean, homey and had a Texas theme throughout.

The view from the upper deck is gorgeous. There are surrounding homes, but my group did not feel like we were too close to them. We still got the secluded and peaceful feel that we wanted.

The NorthShore Marina is only a 10 minute drive from the home. We were able to rent a pontoon that was brought to the marina for us. The convenience of this home was a huge plus for my group.

The owner is very responsive and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Overall, I am so happy I chose this home for my trip! I will definitely be recommending to others.

A Happy 4th of July

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my daughter's 30th birthday celebration. We had adult and children and it was perfect. Plenty of room and a great view from the deck. We loved the trails and the clubhouse pool was great.

It had been a long time since I saw a close group of friends from college (UT Austin), so it was providential when one of our group suggested that we try to have a "reunion" of sorts in Austin this summer. There are 6 of us, and we wanted a good hang out place, with a great kitchen, beds for all of us and a pool. Well, this cottage had everything on our wish list and then some! It really seemed like the owners (Steve and Wendy), took the time to think of everything to make our stay comfortable.

The kitchen is totally stocked with any kitchen pot, pan or gadget you'd need. The whole cottage is extremely spacious and clean and features a "Texas" theme throughout. There is a bedroom down stairs with a king bed and HUGE bathroom. Upstairs are two bed rooms, one with a bunk bed and bathroom, the other with a queen bed and bathroom. The living room has ample couch space and the dining room was perfect for our big breakfasts and casual lunch/dinners. The patio outside is amazing. Tables and relaxing chairs overlooking big trees and another gathering space below that overlooks a valley that tumbles into a stream. You can hear the stream from the property, but you can't see it. The outside of the cottage is wooded and lovely. If you think you'd want to go exploring, be sure to bring close-toed shoes, as some of the paths are a bit rocky.

The Hollows Resort is a great location in general. Secluded, but not "woodsy". You feel like you've escaped the rat race, but haven't gone so far that you've lost cell coverage. :) We were able to take advantage of the pool once during our weekend. It was further to drive to from our cottage than we expected, but once we were there, it was great. Even though it was a Saturday, we had plenty of room to chill in the pool.

As the organizer of our stay at this cottage, it was particularly awesome for me to work with Steve to coordinate everything. He answered ALL our questions and concerns. He was super responsive any time I called, emailed or texted him (I did all three at some point!). He checked in to make sure we were doing ok during our stay and contacted us again to get feedback afterward. It was a great experience overall, and we're hoping to do this again next year. Maybe add a couple more friends if the loft is available. Highly recommended for groups and families!

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.
