"We happened upon this property by chance on VRBO a couple of years ago and it must have been fate because we immediately fell in love with it. We have now been coming several times a year and it's no less magical each time we go.
To start, the house is, unlike a lot of homes in the area, un-McMansion like in its proportions, something that we really appreciate in this day and age of "bigger is better"--it's all you need. Not too big, not too small, just right. It's also clear that it's a place where a family has spent many happy years vacationing. It exudes warmth and coziness and is just the right amount of lived in--clean, well-appointed, and very well tended to but without that sterile feeling that comes with so many newer rental properties today. The house is also situated on what is in our minds the best piece of property in the development and has spectacular views of the lake and sunset. The deck out back gets a lot of use when we stay here and we regularly see wildlife. The living area upstairs is also full of light and the sliding glass doors make it easy to enjoy the view if it's raining, a tad too hot outside, etc.
The house has everything you'll need--we always bring groceries as it's easy to cook and prepare food there. There is a lot to do in the area if you like to adventure about (Krause Springs, Stone House Vineyard, ziplining, water sports, biking, hiking) or you can just hang out at the house and relax. The property is private without being in the middle of nowhere and it's so quiet--coming from the city, the first night we always joke that the silence is deafening.
Finally, the owners are really the icing on the cake. We count them as friends and they are lovely, warm people. Incredibly accommodating without being in your face and always available for questions or any potential issues. (Once we were there and the fan in the fridge stopped working--they stopped everything to get someone out on the weekend to fix it. Really exceptional as we certainly weren't expecting that.)
Can't recommend this property highly enough. It's such a special place in an area that is not overly developed and it's some of the most beautiful land you'll ever see. We started coming when the lake was just a trickle--it's incredible to see the water high again but it's gorgeous regardless. We'd come even if the lake ceased to exist."

"First time for us staying in The Hollows and we thoroughly enjoyed this villa. It was a nice Christmas week family reunion and the 3 bedroom spacious villa with excellent views worked nicely for us. The Beach Club fitness center was very much appreciated as well. Unfortunately, Lake Travis is about 35% of full, but that's Mother Nature's fault. The Hollows is within striking distance of downtown Austin (35 miles) so we were able to take in a few shows there as well. Highly recommend this unit and owner."

"House was as advertised. Gorgeous views, plenty of space, really enjoyed the pool and spa. Spa was not working at first but a call to Michelle and the owners took the time to come the following day and fix the small issue. Overall everybody in our group really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended."
