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!

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Every year our family of four takes a Spring Break trip to relax and reconnect. This clean and well appointed home provided a fantastic locale for our retreat. As one can tell by the pictures, the property is wonderful. The walking trails were perfect for slow walks and fast runs (nice to train for our next race in the warm air). We utilized the private neighborhood pool for a pleasant side excursion. We took two day trips to Austin to do some sightseeing, but it was wonderful to be able to retreat back to the hills and enjoy family time. Steve was great to work with, and had many helpful notes on how to enjoy the experience. This spot definitely deserves the unanimous 5 star rating!

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We shared this vacation home with my elderly parents. They enjoyed the king sized master suite while we took the queen room to be close to our 8 year old daughter across the hall. She loved the bunk beds. It was so nice having a bathroom ajoined to each bedroom plus a half bath off the kitchen. Our two small dogs also enjoyed their stay however one found cactus to be painful in the backside of the house. Ouch! Having access to the pools was a nice amenity as well. We found the home to be very clean and comfortable however the mattresses are on the firmer side as sheets scratchy. The kitchen was well stocked and everything seemed brand new. The door code made it easy to come and go for all the guests. This hill country home made us want to spend more time in this part of Texas. We hope to visit again!

Beautiful rustic home in breathtaking surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

After our daughter accepted a job in Austin, my husband and I moved our February in Florida to February in Texas. We immediately fell in love with the majestic Hill Country. This “cabin” is actually a beautiful and comfortable home. It is well stocked with every item you might need. But moreso, it has a feeling of tranquility that I can’t do justice in describing. The hospitality of the owners is apparent in every little detail. We thoroughly enjoyed walking the trails which begin steps away from the front door. We enjoyed exceptional live music at Rumi’s local tavern. We explored Texas Hill Country wineries and the fabulous Texas Hill Country Olive Oil Company. And, of course, we spent much time exploring the great shops, art, music, food, and natural wonders in Austin, had a day trip to the missions in San Antonio, and so much more. I’d highly recommend this home and hope to return for another stay.

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.

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.
