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 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 in the area 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 uniquely 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 for a relaxing vacation getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My girlfriends and I can enjoy ourselves anywhere, but having a comfortable place to gather makes it even better. We chose Texas Hill Country for our most recent venture, as Austin was an easy airport for us all to reach from our various home cities. This home provided us a cozy place to stay as we explored the area. Of the numerous vacation rentals I've spent time in, this one, without question, had the best appointed kitchen. You could easily prepare an entire Thanksgiving dinner for a crowd using the equipment provided. Our favorite place to gather was the back porch. We spent time there, from dinner until bedtime, each evening. The roll-down shades protected us from the Texas sun as it set each night, plus there was a nice breeze there. Our only issue with the cottage was the bunk beds. None of us were able to navigate climbing up and down from the top bunk, and the one who used the bottom bunk found it hard not to bump her head. That bed may be fine for small children; I can't say. Just something to be aware of, but not enough reason to forego the pleasures of this place. The surrounding neighborhood, beach club area and pools add to it all. Nearby Cedar Park provides for any shopping and dining needs. Thanks to our hosts for the warm Texas welcome!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. Wendy and I are going to go shopping for a ladder that will work better for adults with the bunk. Kids have no problem but now adults will have a ladder available if they need one. Steve

We had an amazing time at this beautiful cabin in the Hollows. This is a perfect place for a family getaway. The back porch is grill area were really great. And the pools at the beach club were refreshing. We would definitely go back.

Loved the cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect setting for the start of summer! Very clean, owners are nice and communication was great. We enjoyed the pools at the club and the marina was great to work with as well. Definitely plan to return! Just far enough out of the city but close enough to everything you would need. Immaculately kept!

Beautiful home in the hills

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cottge during UT Graduation weekend and had a wonderful stay. The Cottage was beautiful with lots of space for the whole family. The large balcony was perfect for gatherings and we cooked several meals in the spacious kitchen. Well appointed kitchen had lots of items needed for cooks and we had an enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Hiking trails are also perfect for a morning run. Hosts were responsive & welcoming. We’ll definitely return to this lovely property.

Amazing house . Owners were great to work with

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, welcoming, peaceful, green. The house is clearly well taken care of with household items that are not only in great condition but more than you may expect or need. Beds and bedrooms are comfortable and each bedroom has a full bathroom so it feels spacious for all. The owners left a book of nearby attractions and eateries. The pool in he community was quiet and well maintained. I had two regrets - 1) I didn't take advantage of the nearby hiking trails which looked amazing. 2) There was a cute little side yard area for dogs. If our little dog was brave enough to fly to Texas he would have been in heaven.
