About Joy Buckels

I love the hill country and this location sold me on having a vacation home here. There is always something to do and the best live music in the state of Texas. That's saying a lot, since this is such a big state!

Joy Buckels purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Joy Buckels chose Texas Hill Country

The location is close to everything, but has a real feeling of being in the country.

What makes this cottage unique

Hiking, museums, river fun, fishing at the lake, beautiful skies, music and shopping. Just like being home. Just bring your clothes.

Very nice, comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice, comfortable place. Nice place to sit outside under a shade tree. We were there for a wedding at the Hideout which was just a mile down the road. Very convenient to river, restaurants, etc. I would definitely recommend this place.

Great little house

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the stay. The only thing I did not like was the $500 deposit. House was very pretty on the inside and really liked that both rooms had king size beds.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review that will help other folks when deciding where to stay In response to the $500 deposit, I used to just have accident insurance/theft but as insurance companies generally do have a clause that releases them from paying, so I had to start requiring a refundable deposit. That seems to be working out better. Yours had already been processed. Come and stay again!

Loved our stay, minor adjustments could take place.

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here. I think the bed in the living room could be better than a futon. Was just hard to sit on and sleep on. Also, was missing a comforter, Spoke with owner and she says there was one in the closet, but we looked everywhere. Other than that great location and we loved!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feed back. This is the first time I heard that the futon couch is too hard. Also, I brought another comforter over when you told me you could find it. Just learned house keeping has taken home to be cleaned. So now we have a back up!! So glad you enjoyed you stay. Please do come back soon. Joy
