About Tom Grass Realtor as well as owner

I maintain a clean residence with up-graded Hypoallergenic pillows - sheets that are Egyptian count 500 plus. Hardwood antique Bedframes and linen service and towel service to assure the linens are sanitized. I want people to have fun and see what I have loved for years about this natural Hill Country setting.

Tom Grass Realtor as well as owner purchased this house in 2004

Why Tom Grass Realtor as well as owner chose Jonestown

I offer a home that is fresh and clean - there are quality leather couches and quality art and a few trophy Dead heads to give the visitor a taste of the Texas Hill Country.

I take pride in my home and pride when I hear from all of those that visit that they had a wonderful time and made memories. When I travel- I do not accept a dirty home and I would not offer anything less than what I would expect for myself.

What makes this house unique

Sleeping arrangements of up to 20 in beds plus three children built-in loft bunks with wooden ladders - Scenery- the 50 ft long saltwater pool- conv. to shopping but with a country private feel - noise is not restricted and no immediate neighbors.

Wedding Venues are close by.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was clean and well done. The quality of the bedding and furniture was excellent. The grounds were well kept but still had the Hill Country flavor we came for. My children and guests enjoyed the pool and the patio spaces - the house was everything we expected and would refer it to friends.

The one great point was that shopping was close by but you still felt that you were out in the country- .

Had some deer to feed and some wild flowers to pick.....

Fantastic rental for a large group

  • 5 of 5

The first day on the property we saw a fox and a number of deer. The home is in a beautiful setting and the amenities are fantastic. There was plenty of room for our large group of families and friends. We were easily able to dock our 2 boats at the dock and it was great that it was a low traffic area, even on a holiday weekend. The home kept being compared to a traditional Arizona or Texas ranch house and was beautifully appointed. We loved the salt water pool as well as the easy lake access. The owner was very easy to work with as well. Would recommend to anyone who wants a country get away!

Fantastic facility for extended family vacation

  • 5 of 5

15 adults (ages 22 to 82) and 2 children ages 3 and 5 stayed from Wednesday until Tuesday. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the back porch, the view of Lake Travis, the dock, the kitchen, the large living spaces, the playground, the birds and deer, and the large backyard for playing soccer and wiffle ball. We ate every breakfast and dinner there. Dishwasher, refrig, washer and dryer, and both A/C's worked well. We did not run out of hot water. Supplies (toilet paper, towels, dish washer soap, laundry detergent, paper towels, etc) were plentiful. The Brinkman smoker looked good but I didn't use it. When it rained, everyone moved inside and there was plenty of room to rest, watch TV, play games or visit. The TV was only turned on to watch the Preakness Stakes horse race. There is a large screen TV in the master bedroom where the children would watch super-hero movies. It is a great place for a family reunion. I would come again and plan to use the Brinkman smoker next time. The owner was available over phone to answer any questions and was pleasant to talk to. I heartily recommend this place.

Perfect Hill Country Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We were considering getting a hotel for a long weekend in the Hill Country Austin area but my husband found this home for us instead. For the same price, we had our own pool, well landscaped outdoor area to relax in, evening bon fires, Lake Travis water front. It was nice to have the lake front on the property and not have to hang out at a public marina. Our own little (2+ ac) slice of heaven. The kitchen is nice as is the bedding and other amenities. Close to HEB and anything else needed. We totally recommend staying here and will return often.

Best place for a big group.

  • 5 of 5

My big group of friends and I have stayed here 3 times and had an amazing experience. Property is huge and great for sports games, lounging by the outdoor firepit area, and relaxing by the pool. Indoor is very nice and sleeps plenty of people with great features like lots of windows, great furniture and modern amenaties. Beautiful views of the hill country. It's also very close to HEB and other stores.

Paradise in the Heart of Texas!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this Beautiful home for my son's High School graduation weekend. We have a large extended family and they were all coming into town! This was cheaper then everyone getting a hotel and the accommodations blow away any hotel in town!!

My family is very picky about their accommodations when they travel and they were NOT disappointed and neither was I!! Immaculate,spacious house, beyond comfortable sleeping arrangements and room for everyone! My son's friends came for one evening for a small graduation party and they LOVED it! I think if they could have skipped graduation to stay at the house, they would have. The owner was very easy to work with! We will definitely be making this a yearly reunion spot for our family!

I searched for days on both Homeaway and airbnb, and this home was the BEST Deal, and sooooo Beautiful inside and out! A very satisfied family :) Oh and as Beautiful as the pictures are, they don't do this home justice!

When you get close to my house you will drop down a 1000 ft drop Hill that views out to lake- then you will turn right on a lane and a half road at the bottom of the hill and go past horses and goats that you are welcome to feed carrots and apples- follow that road without hitting the deer and drop down further along a country lane -(only road in) BUT you are just minutes to Lake Line Mall- Walgreems on Lakeline and HEB and Mc Donalds/Walmart at 184 and 1431 - Volente Marina to rent boats or jet skis also has water park slides - house is surrounded by natural plantings-seasonal wildflowers and Hills - and Deer - fire circle in back yard if there is not a burn ban -
