About Andrew & Courtney Spiwak

Andrew and Courtney are native Houstonians and high school sweethearts who live in the Sugar Land area with their three children.

Andrew & Courtney Spiwak purchased this house in 2012

Why Andrew & Courtney Spiwak chose Texas Hill Country

Andrew & Courtney are natives of the Houston area and both loved to visit Canyon Lake during trips to the Hill Country as kids. They wanted to share their childhood memories of water skiing, boating and swimming in the lake, hiking and visiting surrounding attractions with their children and with others. This property has fantastic views of the lake and sunsets and is close to the attractions.

What makes this house unique

These two houses are about 300 feet apart and set on 3 secluded acres. Minutes from civilization but you feel like you are in your own world surrounded by nature and a cove. A spring fed creek behind one of the houses leads to a stocked pond. A nest of bald eagles is easily seen by the fishing pond.

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

There was a total of 11 of us, 4 adults 7 kids between 2 families. It was perfect for our two families to vacation together but have our own space. The kids enjoyed swimming, fishing, and exploring along with all the local activities in Canyon Lake and New Braunsfels.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group and used both houses. It was a great experience. We had a pontoon boat, ski boat, pedal boat, and a huge inflatable island which we were able to enjoy with no problems. The lake was up due to recent rains, so I don't know where the water's edge would be under normal conditions, but for us, it was a short walk down the hill. Thank you Andrew and Courtney for sharing your wonderful place with us, our children, and our grandchildren.

Memorial Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Our party was 10 adults and 3 kids celebrating my sister's 30th birthday. The houses are nice - clean, but simple. This is not a luxurious property. It definitely feels like a summer vacation home. The homes are the perfect distance from each other, and the property itself is beautiful. There were deer everywhere! The lake is just a short walk down a hill. However, it's not the nicest part of Canyon Lake. It's more of an inlet to the main part of the lake. We enjoyed s'mores by the fire, and the brook along the right side of the property is something out of a fairytale. Two of the kids were toddlers, so it would have been nice if the porch railing was child proof. There is a huge gap that the kids could easily fall through, with a 10-foot drop! The houses were stocked with tons of paper towels, dishwashing liquid, detergent, pots/pans, dishes for nine people in each house, utensils, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bath towels, and cold A/C! Another great quality of this property is the short distance to the local Brookshire Brothers grocery store. So, it was easy to stock up on what we needed before getting settled. Overall, a nice property for what we needed and we enjoyed our stay.

If you're staying at this property, I recommend you bring:

-Folding chairs

-Floats/noodles for the lake

-Bug spray - there are bugs everywhere after the sun goes down.

-Ice

-Hair dryer

-Beach towels

-A few dish towels

-A few extra rolls of toilet paper

-Extra trash bags

Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

Homes were pretty clean and comfortable. Better than expected considering these were located on the water. We had issues with the oven not working in one of the houses but owners were more than willing to repair the problem immediately. Owners were easy to communicate with during the stay to answer any questions that may have come up. Location is wonderful! Far enough out to be quiet but close enough to grocery stores, shopping and just a short trip away to explore Austin or San Antonio. We were greeted with wine and s'more supplies upon arrival, what a nice touch! Definitely took advantage of the fire pit by the water!

Overall experience was quite nice. Would likely stay here again.

Beautiful Location and Scenery, Great Property for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we rented the cabins for a birthday get-together with friends. Courtney and Andrew were quick to reach out and introduce themselves, and were responsive to any questions we had. The two identical houses are the perfect set-up to accommodate a large group, while still having a lot of common area for everyone to talk and hang out, and big kitchens with all the cooking utensils needed to cook meals. The large private property is great for gatherings, and the scenery is peaceful and breathtaking. This year the river/lake was full of water for our puppies to play in; but last year even when it was dry we had a great time walking around and exploring the river bed. We especially love the fire pit because it's the perfect gathering place for everyone. This year we remembered to bring some folding chairs so we could all go hang out and roast s'mores, etc. We hope to keep coming back here in the years to come!
