Steve Hames (469) 446-7751 purchased this House in 2007
Why Steve Hames (469) 446-7751 chose Lago Vista
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!

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!
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.
Beautiful Hill Country Retreat
We enjoyed the home and time with our family. Lots of fun board games and hang out time on the deck. The kids loved the bunk beds!
Amazing house . Owners were great to work with
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.
Quiet cottage in the woods
Arrived May 4 2018 after a heavy rain storm. The weather was cool. The deck in the back faces west. Sitting on the deck you are surrounded by trees. There are bird houses on the deck. One house was occupied by a nest of Black-crested Titmouse. The grandchildren had a good time watching the Titmouse parents feed the chicks. Attached to the deck is a fenced in area for dogs. If your dog is small ( less than 10lbs) it might fit through the fence..
The kids slept in the bunk bed upstairs and their parents in the adjacent room. We slept in the master room down stairs. My son slept on the couch pull-out bed.
The kitchen/dining area has a large table that seats 6. We had my wife's birthday party at the table. The spice cabinet in the kitchen was well stocked and appreciated. The dishes were clean and well organized.
The Beach Club, about 2miles away, has a very nice pool area. The water was a bit cold for the adults but did not keep the kids from swimming. We were there before the peak season so we had the pool area mostly to ourselves.
There are paved trails that run parallel to the old Burnet road. The grandkids rode their bikes on the trail.
We had a nice stay at the house. I recommend it.
Great property.. very well equipped .. very peaceful surroundings!!
Great property , location ... exceeded all expection... definetely recommend if looking for a peaceful setting with amenities!!
Every year our family of four takes a Spring Break trip to relax and reconnect. This clean and well appointed home provided a fantastic locale for our retreat. As one can tell by the pictures, the property is wonderful. The walking trails were perfect for slow walks and fast runs (nice to train for our next race in the warm air). We utilized the private neighborhood pool for a pleasant side excursion. We took two day trips to Austin to do some sightseeing, but it was wonderful to be able to retreat back to the hills and enjoy family time. Steve was great to work with, and had many helpful notes on how to enjoy the experience. This spot definitely deserves the unanimous 5 star rating!
Thank you for such a nice review. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you’ll return again.
