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 Canyon Lake

Andrew & Courtney are natives of the Houston area and both love to visit Canyon Lake. 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

This house is 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 nest of bald eagles can be seen from the porch. Refer to vrbo #414526 to rent both houses on the property.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described. It was clean and orderly and had everything we needed. The stream/pond/cove were an absolute dream to explore for our young and old guests. It was just an awesome experience.

Wonderful Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at this property. The children were outside the whole time exploring the cove, the stream, and the pond. They learned to skip rocks, we had s'mores by the fire pit and felt that we were in our own little piece of paradise. It was so peaceful and comfortable. The eagles posed for amazing photos. Just a perfect family

Beautiful secluded location on Canyon Lake with a comfortable and well-kept home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at your beautiful property. The lake level was up, so catch-and-release fishing from the shore and at the little pond was a lot of fun. Bird watching was excellent from the wrap-around porch. We saw an indigo bunting and a scarlet tanager and many other species. We even caught a glimpse of a bald eagle from the shore.

The Spiwak's have done a wonderful job maintaining the property. The directions were easy to follow and took us right to the house without missing a turn. We appreciated the welcome basket that included a note, a bottle of local wine and bag of snacks.

We definitely recommend this property and would love to return. Thank you for making us feel so welcome in your home!

Fantastic getaway and wonderful hosts!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this property. Privacy, plenty of room to roam, relaxing and exactly what we were looking for. During our stay the bald eagle was "in town" in its giant nest with its babies and we spent a lot of time watching its majesty!!
