“Peaceful Vacation”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

We enjoyed staying at this cottage at the Hollows. We were there with our two boys aged, 11 & 13 and both of our dogs. This home was equipped with everything that we needed. We were also pleasantly surprised at how well maintained the cottage was. It was very clean and we had no issues. Our boys really enjoyed being able to use the pool at the Hollows. Our family would do a 3 mile hike from the cottage and have breakfast on the scenic porch afterwards. During the day we drove to the lake for a swim and watched a movie in the evening. We will definitely be back.

Owner's reply: Thanks Brenda for the nice review. Please return anytime.

“Fabulous getaway!”

This retreat is fabulous! I may be repeating the owners but this home is very well appointed in a rustic style with beautiful hardwood floors, stone fireplace, granite countertops, huge washer/dryer, leather (sleeper) sofa and 2 recliners, large dining table and eat at bar - and we're not even to the kitchen! There was almost everything we needed (no deep fryer for fish) to prepare every meal and snack from very nice flatware and Fiesta dinnerware to a Keurig coffee machine and a standard drip coffee pot. Plenty of pots, pans, bakeware, mixing bowls, storage containers and utensils. Large side-by-side fridge and gas stove with microwave. Now outside... Wonderful covered porch/deck with a large patio table with rocker style chairs along with 2 chaise lounge chairs, 2 lighted ceiling fans, fenced side yard for dog (pet friendly, yea!), great grill on a flagstone patio with another table! AND, access to The Hollows pool area. AND - AND, Lake Travis was perfect for the (rented) pontoon! Just fantastic!!! Also, there is a HEB grocery only 7 miles away so you don't have to haul your groceries from home. A note about the responsiveness of the owners, we traveled Memorial Weekend with very severe weather in the area. Expected power to go out - but it didn't - and looked for alternate lighting but found none. When feedback was given, Mr. Hames promptly reported that emergency lanterns are now in the home. Overall, every bit of the 5 stars and we will return! Thank you Steve & Wendy for sharing!!!

awesome place at the Hollows...

Date of Stay July 7, 2013

My family and I (from Houston) stayed at this home for five nights, and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The cottage was very kid (and dog) friendly. I have two kids, a 13 month and a 3 year old, and they were comfortable and loved it. The place is very spacious and included all the modern enmities one would at home. In fact, it was a home away from home. The package included a pass to the club house giving access to the facilities at the development which included a pool, workout and BBQing facilities, and a small restaurant/grill that served affordable light meals and drinks. We have plans to return at the end of the summer and this winter. Indeed, it was an awesome getaway from the hot and humid monotony of Houston. Moreover, the owners were very polite and helpful.

Great Family Getaway!

I am in love with the back deck and the gorgeous round table and comfy chairs! The morning cup of coffee out there was my favorite part of the day and hearing the whippoorwill at night was a real treat. I haven't heard one since summer church camp when I was a kid! One of the main reasons I picked this cottage was the beach club and it did not disappoint.Beautiful pools, and the restaurant and bar were open - service was great. We rented a pontoon boat one day and found a couple of good swimming coves. Had dinner at the Gnarly Gar one night (live music too) and saw a TON of deer, especially a bunch of fawns on the drive over there. The walking paths were great - we still had a lot more to explore! Use the gym at the beach club too - very nice facilities and equipment. Good to have the wifi, as both my son and hubby needed to do a little work while we were there. The grill area was nice to use too. Cooked on it several times. Kitchen is wonderfully stocked with dishes, appliances, everything you could need. The house is SO beautifully appointed. The whole family had a wonderful time! Hope to be back some time!

We had a great time in Austin and your cottage was the perfect place to stay. On our last night, my husband was looking at a brochure "Top Ten things to do in Austin". We managed to do them all, and still had time to enjoy the beautiful Beach Club. Thank you! Kathy

Cottage was awesome/ resort not so much

Helpful votes:2/2.
The cottage is very comfortable and nicely furnished with pretty much everything you need. It is definitely a higher end feeling kind of place with little touches that are fun, like an over sized master shower.They have an area set aside for a dog that is convenient and bringing our dog made the stay even more fun. We give the cottage a solid "A" The firepit was fun and gas grill worked great. The deck is nicely furnished with high quality patio furniture that made adult relaxation easy to accomplish. It is quiet and scenic-the owners clearly take good care of the home and don't skimp on quality.
