Spicewood estate description
Luxurious 2 acre Tuscan estate overlooking Lake Travis. Built in 2008, the retreat is located in a secluded and exclusive gated community that has the benefit of being a short drive to Austin. Spend the day boating in your own boat, rent one, or use our canoe. BBQ on the back patio and splash around in the refreshing pool and spa. Enjoy a glass of wine from the upper balcony view table overlooking the beautiful sunset on Lake Travis. Try some epic cycling right from the home. Walk to the water front park for a picnic and see deer and other wildlife along the way. You can go hiking a short drive away at Hamilton Pools or Krause Springs or spend the afternoon shopping at the Hill Country Galleria. The home has a commercial grade kitchen and is fully stocked with all the spices and cooking utensils you'll need. After dinner why not take in a movie from our library of DVD's on the 55' LCD TV.
Restaurants, boat and jet ski rentals, golf courses, churches, and groceries are available within 6 miles or less of the home. Tennis courts and the water front park and boat ramp are within walking distance. Horse rentals will be available soon in The Reserves less than a mile away. There is a cedar rocker, outdoor gas grill, and lots of other outdoor seating for your enjoyment. Entertainment system has IPOD port, and a 55 inch LCD TV. Pool towels are provided.

Awesome vacation rental
Awesome vacation rental
We had a wonderful time in a marvellous home in a great location! The house has everything you need and more! The surrounding area is so peaceful and beautiful with very friendly neighbours. We loved shopping at the Hill Country Galleria in Bee Cave and loved Whole Foods Market ....!!!! Great local restaurants - from Opies BBQ to the Grille at the Marina. We would love to return one day!! We did all the arranging from the UK and it went really smoothly as the owners are very friendly and helpful. Thank you to Anne and Ed!!

This house has it all! Great floor plan, super clean, huge bedrooms and closets. The kitchen is stocked and ready, as well as the outdoor grilling area. We had dinner on one of the patios every night...can't miss with that million dollar view. The kids used the pool every day, as well as the huge yard. We walked to the tennis courts to play, drove less than 2 minutes to the beautiful boat launch, and rode bikes around the neighborhood where we always saw at least 3 deer! The owner wants your vacation to be great! She really took care of us! We will be back every year...

This home was an excellent getaway from everything. Not only was it a beautiful home, it was the perfect location with all amneties needed for the duration of our stay. The only time we ever left the home was the first day we arrived and it was to go to the grocery store. The rest of our stay, we never left the home. It was quiet and peaceful and perfect four our children to enjoy the pool every day. We actually lived in the pool day and night while enjoying the outdoor grill. Our friends and family loved it as well. They said we couldn't had found a more perfect place! We agree! We would love to come back next summer and would recommend it to those who are looking for some down time with all the luxuries the are needed for a comfortable stay. For us, it was a 5 star hotel!
