About Cameron & Tommy

We currently live in Austin, Texas on the same property as the Guest House. However, we spend lots of time at our second home in Breckenridge, Colorado and although we both work full-time, are avid travelers and love everything outdoors - including cycling, hiking, gardening, and scuba diving. Our last major trip was to the Galapagos Islands where we spent a week on an Aggressor ship diving with hammerhead sharks. It was an amazing experience! Over the years, we have been all over the world, and ALWAYS stay in vacation rental properties. We have taken everything we have learned from these stays, good and bad, to offer a place to guests that we believe far surpasses the usual vacation rental property. We want all of our guests to have a truly memorable experience and come back and stay with us.

Cameron & Tommy purchased this House in 2007

Why Cameron & Tommy chose West Oak Hill

The Guest House was an add-on to our "ranch style" home which we've lived in since 2000. It was originally built as a separate unit for friends and family to visit, so we went all out to make it a very special place. We love the location of our property as it's close to everything - the hill country, downtown Austin, Lake Travis - but it is extremely private and feels "away from it all." It's a great area for walking, cycling, or just hanging out by the pool on a warm day. Having acreage has allowed us to plant organic raised gardens, where we grow all kinds of veggies, fruit and olive trees, and even grapes. We hope you'll find the property as special as we do!

What makes this House unique

- Open floor plan with lots of natural light - Large, Texas stone fireplace - Tiled and wood floors throughout - Stylishly decorated with nice, comfortable furniture - Original artwork throughout - One car garage with new washer/dryer - Private back deck with gas grill - Fully fenced yard with in pool and year round hot tub - Sleep number bed in master bedroom - Ceiling fans throughout - Plenty of closet space - Fully fenced three acres - Organic gardens with fresh herbs and produce - Home is stocked with Starbucks coffee, laundry detergent, all bathroom items (soap, shampoo, etc.) . . . . and so much more. We strive to make all of our guests feel at home and make their stays memorable!

                                                              Relaxing and spacious property

                                                              We loved the stay in South Austin. The property is beautiful and the pictures don't do justice to the view; we spent a few nights watching the sunset from the hot tub. The location is very convenient off Hwy 290, but far enough away to be secluded. Access to the Hill Country was excellent, and we did several day trips to places like Fredericksburg and Gruene. The only part we had any trouble with was the traffic to get into Austin itself - Hwy 290 east was always jammed up, so we tended to go west instead of east and only got into downtown a couple of times. If you're looking for a gateway to the Hill Country, though, this is the perfect spot. The owners were awesome, and their dogs - which we shared the yard with - were both really sweet and friendly.

                                                              A wonderful Austin home

                                                              We fully enjoyed our stay. Tommy and Cameron were always available and attentive to the details. The home was beautiful and well stocked with all necessities, and many extra touches, such as a fresh fruit tray upon arrival, fresh flower bouquet, and a well stocked kitchen and bathroom. Being dog lovers, we enjoyed our daily pet sessions by the poolside with the owners' dogs. Everything was clean and the beds comfortable. We enjoyed our day tours to Austin, Waco, and San Antonio, knowing that we had such a welcoming place to comeback to each evening. Cooking was a breeze with spices and basics (flour, sugar,etc.) available in the kitchen and a grill on our porch. Thoroughly enjoyable stay!

                                                              Excellent property and location for a memorable and enjoyable stay in Austin

                                                              Our stay was more than expected. All the comforts of home were available. The area was very nice and within close proximity to restaurants, stores and main travel roads. Can’t wait to get back to Austin next year.

                                                              Relaxing in Austin

                                                              Our stay was absolutely perfect. So close to downtown yet you feel like your in an Oasis.

                                                              Enjoyed the wild deer, the walks around the neighborhood and the gorgeous view. The pool and the large back yard is very relaxing. Would definitely come back.

                                                              Great place to stay! Everything was very nice!

                                                              The property is huge and all fenced if you brought a dog.

                                                              Well worth the money

                                                              The place is super clean and well equipped. We had no issues but when we had a question the owners were a quick phone call or text away. It is very accurately advertised. We are already planning a return trip to Austin and we will stay here if possible. This place is a short drive to downtown and day trips to other sights are easy. The dogs are super cute and friendly. Thanks again Tommy and Cameron.

The guest house is close to town, the hill country, and Lake Travis . . . a perfect location to see it all!
