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 Austin

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!

Well Worth It

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time that we have attempted to stay at a house versus a hotel while in Texas. We were not sure what we would be up against with our stay so we tried to keep an open mind.

Honestly, I am not sure that I have enough room to write how much we enjoyed this location. I would characterize it as a mother-in-law set up that is attached to the main house. That being said we felt that we were miles away from the main house.

The location is just off 290 west of I35 going toward Fredericksburg in the proximity of the Oak Hill area. Dripping Springs is about 15 miles west. Downtown Austin was about the same distance going east.

The place is a two bedroom, one bath set up. Open set up with with the living room, eating area and a full size kitchen in one section and the bedrooms including a walk up stairs to the master bed. In the back is the house pool with hot tub and a view looking west that is unbelievable, especially at sunset. We took advantage of swimming and sitting next to the pool every night.

The house was about 1/8th mile off 290 but felt like we were miles away from the road and noise. Unbelievably quiet.

Tommy and Cameron were gracious host and we were greeted with a bottle of wine and a plate of fruit and tour of the grounds. We were able to pick fruit and vegetables from their gardens that we used with some of the meals we ate at the place. Small grill on the deck outside allowed us to do some outside cooking while we were visiting.

The house location allowed us easy access to go both west and east as we visited the area. We have already determined that we will go back to the Hill Country next year and will be reaching out to Tommy and Cameron again to stay at their place and be able to enjoy the quiet and Texas sunsets.

Excellent rental experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! While the location is only about 25 min from central Austin, you feel like you are in the country. Every morning we were greeted with a group of deer standing in the front yard. The place was clean, spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately rainy weather prevented us from taking advantage of the beautiful backyard and pool but hopefully we can return and enjoy them in the future. Cameron and Tommy were very accommodating and answered all of our questions.

Fabulous Accommodations!!!

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was even better than we had hoped. The property was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the freedom to use the pool and hot tub throughout the day and evening. We enjoyed visiting with Tommy and Cameron in the yard. Seeing the dogs and deer each day were also highlights of the trip. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
