Enjoy all the comforts of home at our 2BR, 2BA retreat by the lake! Our home is perfect for any group, whether on a family vacation, romantic getaway or traveling with friends. We're kid-friendly and great for small families!

Vast picture windows bring the stunning natural landscape inside and elegant, classic furnishings lend hill country charm to this sprawling home.

Located just 35 miles outside of Austin in a quiet gated community, this home offers you the chance to stay close to city life while enjoying country-style charm.

Gather round at night to catch movies on a flat-screen TV with DirectTV while unwinding on cozy chairs and a queen sleeper sofa, which opens up for extra guests. The main living area has large picture windows, allowing for plenty of natural light and amazing lake views.

Our two-story lake house is located in the gated community of Windermere Oaks in Spicewood, Texas (approximately 35 miles northwest of Austin). Just a 45-minute drive to Fredericksburg and Luckenbach, the lake house is also convenient to area wineries such as Spicewood Vineyards and Stonehouse Winery.

Our gated community comes with tons of great perks! We have a community pool, which is only shared by six houses. We also have direct access to the water for outdoor fun. Don’t miss a chance to adventure down to Krause Springs, 10 minutes away, which has some of the most beautiful fresh water swimming areas in Austin and the surrounding areas.

Poodies Road House is a great place to go catch some live Texas music and grab a bite to eat just 10 miles from home (don’t miss the Famous Poodie Burger). At our lakeview retreat, you’re just 40 minutes from downtown, 15 from the Hill Country Galleria and close to quite a few of the local wineries. Welcome to Spicewood, Texas -- one of hill country’s greatest finds!

Amazing view of the lake!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do justice to the main room of this house. We were very pleasantly surprised upon walking in to take in the very wide view through picture windows, then we stepped out on to the large balcony where the view was even better. That's also where the hot tub is, and we spent a lot of time there under the stars looking out over the lake. It's a short walk down to your own personal stretch of waterfront, although many people will be reluctant to get in right there (it's not a sandy beach). Almost everything was clean, functional, inviting, and pleasant about this property. Definitely worth the value, and we were very happy to have rented it. The neighborhood was quiet with lots of deer wandering around. The hot tub did flip a breaker on us, but the property managers were very responsive and helped us fix it right away. Make sure you're aware of the sleeping situation - 2 rooms with 2 or 3 medium sized beds apiece. We were all friends so we made it work, but if you need a room to yourself to sleep in it may be harder to arrange.

The house is EXACTLY as the pictures! I would say it's the best view of the river! You can sit on the patio & gaze at the tranquility of the water or walk down a path to the landing & gaze over the river, or sit in the living room & gaze thru the huge picture window! This was an amazing wknd with a community swimming pool in cool off during the day & a hot tub to relax in the evening, overlooking the river! Very relaxing & tranquil.

I only gave a 4 star because of the cleanliness...

Cobwebs & spiders thru out the house, dishes, pots & pans, dirty in the cabinets, some with food in them, others with food & water in them! This type of dirtiness causes bugs... Had to wash everything before using it...

I would say the house needs a new housekeeping crew and an exterminator, there were gnats/fruit flies covering a large portion of a wall in one of the bedrooms! We sprayed the wall with insect spray... Other than the cleanliness, the house was perfect, big, comfortable...

Weekend Escapade

  • 4 of 5

Our first time using Turnkey vacation started off as a bit of a disappointment. We were just 25 minutes from the rental house when we got a call from them and was told that the oven wasn’t working. We were planning to bake brownies and brought casserole dishes with us to be heated in the oven. We could have been prepared if we knew ahead of time. Though, they gave us a discount to compensate for our trouble; it was a little bit of an inconvenience.

The house was neat with comfy beds, a spectacular view, and a hot tub which we enjoyed during the beautiful Texas summer nights. It’s such a perfect getaway. I would consider coming back and definitely would recommend the house to my friends.

Be sure to wear sneakers when going down to the lake because the walk down can be slippery and potentially dangerous if wet. A visit at Krause Springs is a must! Being only 10 minutes away from the house it’s a great spot to bring the family and enjoy what nature has to offer aside from the lake literally steps away. FYI, there is low to no internet connection in and around the house.

The house does need some maintenance and up keep: one screen door is broken, front closet and utility storage were cluttered and cobwebs in ceiling pot racks and plants.

But overall, we enjoyed our stay and had a blast!

Owner's Response: Hi Chona, Thank you for taking the time out of your day to leave us this feedback. We'd like to start out for apologizing again for the inconvenience with the broken oven handle during your stay. We discovered the damages from the previous guest and have since had this repaired, but can imagine what a bummer this would be to not be able to bake cookies during your stay. We will look into doing more sprucing up at this home now that the summer lake season has slowed down, and see if there are any additional ways we can improve the experience for our future guests. We sincerely hope you'd consider visiting us again in the future. Don't forget we have 24/7 guest support if you need anything at all during your stay. Thank you for your time and have a wonderful year! - The TurnKey VR Team.

Girls weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a quiet girls' weekend here. The photos on the listing were exactly what we experienced with the house. We loved the view, the deck, and the spacious open kitchen and living room. The beds were comfortable, too.

We enjoyed visiting close by spots - Stonehouse vineyards and Krause springs.

On the negative side, there were only 2 bath towels available for a house that sleeps 8 people. There were no hand towels in the main floor bathroom. We had to retrieve our own toilet paper from the pantry, which was in complete disarray.

Overall, this is a great rental, and we will be back.

Owner's Response: Hi Anna, We're so glad to hear you had a wonderful time at this home during your girls weekend and enjoyed the amazing location and views from the property. We're so sorry to hear you weren't able to locate enough towels at the home. We sincerely hope you'll consider visiting us again and we have 24/7 guest support, so please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything at all during a future stay! Now that we're moving into a slower fall season at the lake we'll be sure to visit this property and see if there is any way we can improve the home for future rentals. Please come back and see us again soon! - The TurnKey VR Team

Good but not great

  • 3 of 5

Working with Turnkey was awesome, very helpful and organized. The house was clean, looked just like the pictures. The view is awesome. Loved the quiet neighborhood and felt very safe in the gated community. The coffee maker did not work - it needed a maintenance clean with vinegar which was not at the house. We were so sad as we are all coffee drinkers and had to muddle through without our cup of joe. There is NOT a place close to grab a cup. The area down to the lake needs some maintenance, there were some loose rocks that could have been dangerous. There were ants on the deck. The screen door needs some TLC. The owners could make the area under the deck useable if they could figure out what to do with it. I would go back with a coffee maker in hand for back-up.

Owner's Response: Hi Whittney, Thank you so much for the review, and we are so happy to hear that you had a great stay with us. That being said, we do apologize if you encountered some issues while staying with us. Here at TurnKey, it is our highest priority to make sure each guest has the best experience possible, and our 24/7 guest hotline is always available to help if anything comes up. Had we known about the coffee maker, we would have been happy to bring over a new one. Please know that we have since replaced the coffee maker, so our future guests can be properly caffeinated. By the way, you were absolutely perfect guests, and hopefully you will come stay with us again! -The TurnKey VR Team
