My wife stayed with John and Kate in the Grey Forest Cottage, and she had a wonderful time. I set up the rental for her, and I found John to be super responsive, welcoming, and warm throughout the rental process. My wife loved the cottage: she said the space was fabulous, the neighborhood was beautiful, and the directions were clear. She also echoed the same things I have already said about John, and that she would stay again any time she visits San Antonio. Thanks guys, for a wonderful trip!

A perfect getaway in Hill country. We saw a concert at Flores Country Store. It was the closest spot to the store. Kate and John were very welcoming and fun to chat with.

The amenities were very modern, simplistic, and chic. The bed was very comfortable and the place was spotless. The cottage was very welcoming and secluded - perfect for a visit to Hill Country or San Antonio. I'd definitely look to stay here for my next trip to Hill Country - highly recommend!

Excellent communication, scenic and quiet location. I wanted to live there full time from the moment we arrived at the unit! We picked up some food with the help of the host and sat in the beautifully reclaimed window greenhouse during dinner. Would b more than greatful to stay there again!

I am a television producer/writer/director who lives in Texas and Tahiti. I have traveled and worked in about 80 countries and love cultural immersion and meeting new people. I produced and directed the first few seasons of 'Survivor' on CBS as well as PBS's 'The Royal Tour' hosted by sitting Heads-of-State. I have a lovely and talented wife from an exceptional family. For all you cinephiles, my late father-in-law, Conrad Lafcadio Hall, was a multiple Oscar winning cinematographer who did such classics as 'In Cold Blood', 'Cool Hand Luke', 'Searching for Bobby Fischer', 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid', 'American Beauty' and 'Road to Perdition', and I'm extremely proud of his body of work. (His father, James Norman Hall, co-wrote the 'Mutiny on the Bounty' trilogy, among other great novels.)

We're pretty low maintenance guests, but love to meet the owners if they like. We're going to be hosting soon hopefully as well.

Life motto? Hmmm. I'll have to think about that one, but I'll just borrow a couple of Victor Frankl quotes for now that inform my thinking, if not my behavior - (a) "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves," and (b) "The last of human freedoms - the ability to chose one's attitude in a given set of circumstances."

See you on the road!
