The Aloha Cottage sits high on a corner lot on a little over two acres, on a dead end, across the street from Lake Travis. Approximately half of the property is wooded and the remaining half is an expansive front yard with numerous, gorgeous Live Oaks. (There is one tree on the property that is estimated to be 300 years old. It's a beauty!!) It is peaceful and abounding with Mother Nature. All of this yet still 15-30 minutes from numerous restaurants, shops and some great Spicewood nightlife.
Just down the street, a short 5 minute walk, is a private homeowner's park with a boat ramp, day dock, picnic tables and just about the best lake shore access this side of Lake Travis! The shoreline is a series of rock ledges, allowing for a refreshing plunge off the edge as if jumping into a pool. No squishy, muddy lake bottom! The ledges also allow for shallow water lounging for those who aren't swimmers. It is truly an incredible park that, on many days, you can enjoy all to yourself! (Note: Lake Travis is a variable level lake. If the lake is low, you will need to be quite skilled if you plan to launch a boat from our home owner's park ramp. It takes about a 60 degree turn with a drop off on the outside of the curve. Only one turn, then it straightens back out again. See pictures 20-23 for a visual. When the lake is higher, that curve is under water, making the launch of your boat straight forward.)
The Aloha Cottage is a detached guest cottage, tucked around back of the main house and has its own driveway and completely private entrance. Step across the checkered patio and into a room with three large windows facing the spacious front yard. The yard is fenced on one side and has a huge Jasmine hedge along the entire front, creating a private oasis. Newly built and beautifully designed in 2017, the cottage is fresh, bright and clean. The whites, sandy beiges and multiple tones of turquoise create a welcoming and relaxing retreat.
The Aloha Cottage has a spa quality, GORGEOUS bathroom. This seriously can not be overstated. If you are a "bath" person, look no farther. It has a custom colored, claw foot soaking tub with a chrome "Telephone" faucet set. There is a large glass enclosed shower, a huge, vintage-styled pedestal sink and a separate toilet room. One wall of the bathroom is clad in upcycled pallet wood adding a touch of warmth. It is stocked with a variety of soaking salts for your pleasure. Begin your stay by melting away stress with a good hot soak!
The bedroom features a queen bed with luxury 100% cotton bedding; your choice of feather or Allerease pillows, down comforter, a micro fiber, cozy coverlet and plenty of throws pillows to sit back and relax on. There's a comfy armchair that's big enough to snuggle into.
In the same room is a simple "kitchenette" featuring a table for two under a bright, sunny window, a Keurig, spacious fridge, microwave and a hutch stocked with dishes, utensils and glassware. Everything you need for a comfortable and lovely stay.
Throughout the cottage, vintage, repurposed and upcycled materials have been used, making this artistic retreat truly unique, warm and very inviting.
