About Steve Hames (469) 446-7751

You can call me anytime at 469- 446-7751 with your questions. For the last 25 years I have worked in the meeting and travel industry. I've stayed and inspected hundreds of resorts and fine hotels around the world. Quality and attention to details has always been important to me. My wife and I make sure that our cottage is always in a five star condition. We believe no one will ever leave our property disappointed.

Steve Hames (469) 446-7751 purchased this house in 2007

Why Steve Hames (469) 446-7751 chose Jonestown

After years of traveling around the world we decided that the beautiful Texas Hill Country and Austin was the place we want to be. There is so much to do in the Austin and Hill Country area. The people are friendly and fun to be around. We enjoy ourselves so much that we purchased 5 acres next door where we are ready to build our full time home and keep our Cottage for vacation renters.

What makes this house unique

The Cottage is unique situated with only 1 neighbor. It's surrounded by forests, hills, creeks, and the walking, hiking & biking trail system. The Cottage is great for those that want beauty, views, privacy and quietness. We think it's the best!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and perfect for families and dogs. We had fantastic walks on the trails and the area was very peaceful. The owners were also very accommodating. They even had snacks and water for our arrival! We REALLY loved it....and we can be pretty picky. :)

I always appreciate cons on a review so I'll give you a few if I had to choose: 1) the sheets on the beds are a bit stiff. We laid down some extra soft blankets left in the closets to compensate. 2) Be aware that if staying during the winter season a lot of things are closed in the area. Two of the restaurants that I had planned on attending were closed for construction and the season. That said, there aren't many other attractions nearby so be prepared to drive at least 20 minutes for any sort or entertainment outside of the cottage.

Overall, we would recommend the property and hope to return in the spring sometime.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your helpful comments. I've just put together information on 10 of the restaurants within 6 miles of our Cottage that are open year round. I think this information should really help our guests.

What an absolutely beautiful home! The home itself is well cared for and has anything and everything you would need during your stay. The owner communicated with us prior to our arrival and definitely went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay! Most definitely would return and recommend for others.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything we expected. It was a big plus having a bathroom in each bedroom. Our two year old granddaughter was with us so the safety gate on the deck was wonderful. We could enjoy the deck without worrying.

The house was comfortable and the area very relaxing and peaceful. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, very well stocked with dishes and flatware. We may reserve this house again in the future.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a peaceful getaway, especially after Hurricane Harvey, and this was exactly what was needed. The cottage is beautiful and has every amenity that you could need. I really loved waking up in the morning and walking the trails. One of the trails is right next to the cottage - perfect for getting my daily exercise.

There is also a great side yard that's fenced in to let your dog out.

We had no issues and the owners were responsive and answered all of my questions. I can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. The 10 miles of paved trails is also one of our favorites. We're looking forward to your return.
