Spicewood House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

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. It is 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.


The main floor of our house is comfortable and spacious with a shared living, dining and kitchen area. 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 fully-equipped kitchen comes complete with wraparound counter space, new appliances including coffee maker (not Keurig), and all the gear you will need to cook a family style meal. The upstairs has two bedrooms both with two queen beds with luxury bedding. Two full bathrooms have stand up showers and ample space for getting ready.

Our favorite part of the home is the spacious deck area complete with patio furniture, grill and hot tub. It’s the perfect spot to relax with family and friends while enjoying the sweeping 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. Also 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 the Austin and 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 the hill country’s greatest finds!

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!

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.

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

Perfect For Girls Weekend

The house was very clean and looked just like the pictures! The view of the lake from the porch is awesome and the neighborhood is very quiet. We will be back and will recommend it to others.

Gorgeous view but a bit disappointing

  • 3 of 5

Amazing views, nice location. Unfortunately, a few disappointing points. There were prior guests dirty clothing, shoes and linens left in closet. Pilled and torn bottom sheet on one bed, water leak in cabinet had soaked toilet paper and towels not stocked in bathroom had to be retrieved from laundry room downstairs. Most disappointing was the buzzing noise emanating from the head unit in the bedroom and a huge branch scraped the roof during a windy night causing a lot of noise. We had gone there for the "serene" environment and to catch up on much needed sleep, didn't happen. Management quickly responded to our complaint about the hvac issue but was unable to fix the problem during our stay so we resorted to turning off the unit and consequently the heat to the house. On a positive note, living room and kitchen were nicely furnished and well stocked.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time alert of us issues that arose during your stay, and we're so sorry we weren't able to resolve these before check out. Upon further inspection a storm caused one of our property trees to fall over, which damaged the roof and created the unpleasant scraping noises. This portion of the tree has been removed and we have since repaired the roof. Replacement parts had to be ordered for the HVAC repairs, and were not available during your stay. We're so happy to hear you enjoyed the home despite a few major issues during your reservation, and would love to encourage you to return again in the future. The good news is Mother Nature can filled up the lake during all her recent storms! You were wonderful guests and we'd love to have you back. Please contact us directly if you're ever interested in rebooking. - The TurnKey VR Team
