Put up your feet and watch the game or a movie on the large 50' high definition flat screen TV with Blue Ray DVD player. Free Wi-Fi is also available in our Villa so bring your laptop and stay connected.

About Ilonka Berryman

We are the Berryman family from Spring Texas. We have two boys and love escaping to the Hill Country every chance we get. After traveling with our kids over the last couple of years, we decided that renting a villa over hotel was the best way to vacation. We all have space to spread out and truly relax. When we discovered The Hollows, we knew right away it was the perfect place to relax and make memories with our boys.

Ilonka Berryman purchased this condo in 2009

Why Ilonka Berryman chose Jonestown

We manage the villa ourselves so you will get personalized service and not have to deal with a property management company. We have been coming to this area for a long time and are happy to share all fun things to do in the area with you. You will find a binder in our villa that is full of information that we have collected over the years on area restaurants, activities, maps and suggestions on things to do.

What makes this condo unique

Our villa is in one of the only buildings at the Hollows that faces the lake directly. We have great lake views from all the main living areas. This Villa is a corner unit with no other buildings next to us, making for great unobstructed views and privacy.

Property was spacious, comfortable, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at El Sueno. Every morning we enjoyed our nature hike & breakfast on the balcony with the gorgeous lake views. The Beach Club was a favorite for our family to relax & unwind. The kids loved the infinity pool that was just the right depth. The drinks & food offered were a great bonus! We will definitely come visit the The Hollows & Lake Travis again in the future!

Fantastic family vacation on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just as advertised. The back patio was the focal point of our stay. Morning coffee and late afternoon drinks were a daily occurrence. The owner kept us updated on the conditions at the lake due to the recent flooding. Ilonka was a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this villa. The beach club was a great place to spend the day as well as renting a boat from VIP Marina and spending the day on the lake. There was a little drive to go and do the different things in the area but it was great quality time spent with the family. We are looking forward to our next stay on Lake Travis.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the fantastic review! The lake did have to be closed to boating for a few days while they let the excess water out through the dam. This was a rare occurrence! I am happy to hear you had a great day on the lake during your stay and that you enjoyed your family time at El Sueño!

Hill Country Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at the beautiful Berryman Villa in The Hollows; and it was just as comfortable, pleasant and fun as it was the first time. The Hollows area is absolutely beautiful and the vistas of Lake Travis from the spacious balcony are breathtaking. We enjoyed coffee in the a.m. and wine at night on that balcony and enjoyed watching nature's lightning show with Lake Travis as the background.

The villa itself could not be more comfortable. The kitchen is nicely stocked, the furnishings are comfy and well maintained, having a laundry inside the villa is a plus....it's truly a spacious villa.

The Beach Club pool is a big hit, especially for the kids. The area is a perfect hang out for the entire family - having the American Grill on site is a huge plus for hungry swimmers. At the end of the swimming day, there was live music at the Beach Club pool which was quite relaxing as well (until it started raining again!) :-)

We love it at The Hollows and the Berryman Villa in particular (thanks Ilonka!!) We cannot wait to return!

A Villa with a wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent three very relaxing days at this beautifully decorated, comfortable Villa. Though the weather was a bit rainy we were able to spend some time on the porch enjoying a wonderful view of Lake Travis. It was fun to see the hummingbirds, cardinals and chickadees chase each other through the trees that surrounded the area. We brought my Mom (who turned 95 recently and who needs to use a wheelchair) with us and she thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Though the Villa is on the second level, there is an elevator in the building for individuals who have difficulty climbing steps. We had fun visiting a local winery and taking day trips to nearby towns to shop for souvenirs. Thanks so much for a great time and many happy memories ---Carol and Family

Graduation weekend review

  • 5 of 5

We loved the views. It is worth the drive to be away from the hustle and traffic. The pools were gorgeous and a little cool and beach towels were provided. They were opening up the hot tubs the next day, but they looked inviting as well. The condo had everything we needed for our graduation celebration weekend. We had 6 adults in the unit. We played games, put together the puzzle that was provided and enjoyed eating breakfasts, lunch and dinner on the balcony with that view. We even saw some deer. The grocery stores were close enough for our needs. The condo was clean and spacious and nicely decorated. We will use the unit again for any future Austin area trips.

Great weekend getaway from the city!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at El Sueno. The panoramic lake views from the deck are breathtaking. We ate one dinner at the Beach Club Grill next to the pools - there are actually two separate pool areas to relax around. It was nice having food options very close to the villa. We walked the trail from the villa down to the lake and back - very scenic and shaded from the sun in the evening. We watched a movie at night on their big screen TV and the sofa is super comfy and fits several people at movie time. The bedrooms and beds were high quality and our daughter loved the double bunk beds. Marble Falls is about 30-40 minutes away where we picked strawberries as a family at Sweet Berry Farms. It was the perfect 2 night getaway for our family. Thanks Ilonka!
