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 owner

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a peaceful getaway, especially after Hurricane Harvey, and this was exactly what was needed. The cottage is beautiful and has every amenity that you could need. I really loved waking up in the morning and walking the trails. One of the trails is right next to the cottage - perfect for getting my daily exercise.

There is also a great side yard that's fenced in to let your dog out.

We had no issues and the owners were responsive and answered all of my questions. I can't wait to go back.

Nice relaxing trip, plenty of space for everyone- adults and kids. Fantastic back balcony/porch!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, clean, well stocked (for cooking) kitchen. Steve was an attentive host. My family and I enjoyed the beach club pools. We are already talking about coming back next year. One drawback - the house was too far away from the actual lake.

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).
