HUGE DECK OVERLOOKING MAGICAL VIEW OF THE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY

Spicewood House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 story, huge yard and deck great for kids, sleeps 10

*** Currently Lake Travis is extremely low and there is no water behind our house. SPECIAL RATES are available (even for the summer) if you book in advance. Call or e-mail the owner. ***

1-story with fantastic deck overlooking the Pedernales Arm of Lake Travis (2 miles from the confluence of the Colorado on Lake Travis). Only 30 miles or 35 minutes from downtown Austin.

Cathedral ceilings in the great room, open kitchen with 2 sinks and huge granite island, stainless steel appliances. All glass on back of house. 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths. Waterfront with clear blue water and boat dock with slip. The huge old oak trees shading the 1,200 foot deck make you feel like you are in a treehouse. The deck has an outdoor dining and living area to accomodate your family and friends. Large front yard, completely fenced for kids.

You can bring your boat or jet ski's and launch in our neighborhood, a few blocks from our house. Then, tie up your boat at our dock for convienent use.

Lake Lovers Read This!: We are right on the water. All the skiers and wakeboarders like to ski in front of our dock due to the smooth water here. This is such a great home to have fun and enjoy the family. If you bring jet ski's or a boat and you can launch it in our neighborhood launch and boat all over Lake Travis. We love to have picnics down on the dock and have a glass of wine or a frosty beer at sunset. It's extremely peaceful and beautiful.

Golf - TOP RATED Courses Nearby: Many golf lovers in the area head to Marble Falls (15 miles from here) to the Hidden Falls golf course. There's also the Legends at Lake LBJ or Delaware Springs Golf Course in Burnet and the fine courses at Lakeway. There are two top rated private golf courses within 5 miles of the house - Barton Creek Lakeside and Lakecliff. If you belong to a club you may have reciprocal privileges.

Perfect spot for mulitgenerational family reunion.

Four adult cousins, their spouses and children (in age from 1-20) stayed at this home recently. It was perfect. We had come from across the country for a wedding at Spicewood Vineyards. The house was perfectly located to this venue. We found the house clean and fully prepard for our visit. It is spacious, comfortably decorated and conducive to relaxation. The layout of the house made it easy for each family to have privacy and still allowed for much gathering in the main room and kitchen. The children's room had toys and books, which was an added bonus for our little ones. We grilled on the deck and made other meals in the kitchen, which is fully stocked with dishes, pans and appropriate utensils. Thank you for a lovely stay and the opportunity to make more family memories.

The new owner (the house has recently been sold) was very helpful in helping me get everything arranged. We had actually booked our stay with them before they had their first family weekend in the home so I thought there might be some hiccups but no, everything went smooth and easy.

We loved the house. Lots of great features and nice furnishings in 3 of the 4 bedrooms. The 4th one is setup more for children with a daybed and a full/twin bunk bed but we made do. Laundry room is available and laundry soap was available also. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, cleaning supplies, utensils, platters and even some spices. The house has handscraped hardwood floors which are beautiful and the deck is stunningly beautiful. We sat outside for almost all meals at the outdoor dining area and the deck was my personal favorite place to read. Deer were spotted all around the property around dusk as well. This house is located real close to the Cypress Valley Canopy Tours. Next time we might arrange a tour to do those while staying at the house. You could almost walk there.

The BBQ grill was a great feature and we enjoyed grilling and eating together. We noticed that the house is very quiet. We could not hear conversations outside from the inside of the house or vice versa.

At night sitting on the deck four of us watched the shooting stars in the sky and listened to the waves of the lake lap at the shore. It was an amazing place to stay. We are planning our next trip already!

The perfect getaway spot!

Nine college friends got together in this terrific home for a college reunion. We could not have chosen a more suitable spot for a relaxing four days of fun, great food, long walks, and reminiscing about college.
The house and environs are in perfect shape! Every detail was taken care of and it's clear the owners take great pride in providing a spotless, modern, and welcoming home. We felt comfortable from the second we opened the front door until we regretfully said farewell to Spicewood.
Very accessible from Austin's Bergstrom airport and just 30 minutes from the nightlife in downtown Austin (Sixth St). Great local nightspots near the home...check out Poodie's for an authentic Texas roadhouse.
Highly recommended!

The Most Amazing House!!!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 10, 2009
  • Stayed: Apr 2009
Every single thing about this estate is absolutely perfect!! The setting was incredibly private, which is something that you don't find much in such an area. The house has one of the last large lots on a small lane, and I am happy to say that we heard not one noise the entire time we were there--PERFECT!!
One of my favorite features had to be the deck. First thing's first: the deck is HUGE! It has two different areas for sitting (table and chairs, along with a couch/umberella set), and a gas grill that we used to cook some amazing seafood from the local fish market. Also, it was built AROUND the coolest trees I have ever seen (I'm from PA), which were beautiful to look at through the massive windows from every back room in the house. You'll know what I mean when you wake-up in the master bedroom to a consistently gorgeous view!
EVERYTHING we needed was found easily, right down to papertowels and bug spray. It was so nice to be able to leave all worries behind and just enjoy such a beautiful place. Did I mention that each of the 3 showers in the house are huge!? I can't express how cool that was!
We stayed here for four nights, and it took everything we had to turn the key back in. I'll never forget the amazing stairs in the "bluffs" which lead you down to the dock. Luckily, it was just warm enough for us to jump in the river (early April)! The entire grounds area is truly magical--I have about a hundred pictures to prove it.
It was tough to pick-out a rental in this area, but I can say without a doubt that we chose the best one. When we weren't hanging-out at the local eateries (Angel's, Poodie's, Opie's--all fantastic), we didn't want to leave the house!
With Desiree and the house manager, Diana, organizing every detail, we were able to have the vacation we had hoped for and more. Surprise--we're already looking into booking it again!!
Five Stars, We Loved It, Amazing, and a big hug to the Owners!!
Sincerely,
Mike & Meghan

This is the neck of the woods where Willie Nelson has a home, so does the Director Robert Rodriguez, and one of the Dixie Chicks. In the heart of the Texas Hill Country - you'll find old oak trees, country lanes, rolling blue hills, lakes, BBQ joints and honky tonks. Willie Nelson's former ranch and golf course are just around the corner.

Highway 71 is the main route here - we are located a few miles from the Barton Creek Country Club and 15 miles from several golf courses.

It's quiet out here - all you hear is an occasional boat and birds.

There are several fabulous restaurants out here in the country that welcome families and kids. Plus, there are two wonderful wineries within 5 miles. And the new Hill Country Galleria is only 15 minutes up the road. It has a cinema, all kinds of shops and restaurants - in the summer there's always outdoor live music concerts.

Other Activities: boating
