Spicewood House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, Study, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2-4)

We are gifting you $100 off your weekend stay in February if you 'like' us on FaceBook!

“La Casa de Joy” is our beautiful 1-bed, 2-bath waterfront luxury home on Lake Travis. This home has been featured on HGTV’s Straw with Style, Designing Texas, and was the cover feature for Natural Home Magazine. It is the tallest straw bale home in Texas, and architecturally unique with hand-painted tiles & gemstones woven into the flooring. It is designed to sleep two, however bedding may be added to sleep up to four. This home is perfect for a romantic getaway, honeymoon, private retreat, or to rent as a main house for your event/retreat.

At the front entrance, you are met with a beautiful view of the entire property, garden, & a koi pond. Walk through the soaring entry way into the downstairs main living area with a cornerstone fireplace, sunken level lounge, & fully equipped chef’s kitchen. Upstairs you’ll find a stunning large master bedroom with queen size bed, study, master bath with dual sided fireplace (take a bath by the fire!), and a spiral staircase leading to the 3rd floor meditation room & viewing tower. Open the back door to an inviting large-covered porch with a fireplace, hot tub, and gorgeous views of the lake and sunset. “La Casa de Joy” was originally built by an artist & healer J. Long; her creativity & energy can be felt throughout the entire property.

Enjoy on-site amenities: yoga, thai massage, holistic personal training, retreat packages, private hot tub, herb garden, organic composting sphere, coffee/tea, all-natural body products, wifi, private access to the lake, swimming, sunset views, walking trails, waterfall, fire pit, multiple decks, our air-conditioned “floating cabin”, & the soothing sounds & sites of nature.

Magic Thai massage and yoga during an awesome stay

Anyone yearning for a "coming back to your senses" retreat with lots of creature comforts should spend some time at Living Waters. Bethany our hostess and instructor did a super job giving us a wonderful deep tissue massage and a very thorough yoga lesson. I would only recommend this gem to my favorite people. An added benefit is the kitchen which is perfect for cooking your own relaxing meals. Restaurants are about 20 minutes away but then again - who wants to leave paradise?

We used the entire site for a directors' retreat...it was ideal. Everyone was able to rest, relax, and really feel commited to the work that we had to accomplish.

We were very happy with our stay at La Casa de Joy. The house and grounds are beautiful. We wish we could have stayed longer. Bethany, who greeted us, was a very precious and helpful lady.

A peaceful wedding (yes, it's possible!)

A peaceful wedding (yes, it's possible!)

On a beautiful spring morning we were married at Living Waters. We booked the entire facility for the weekend to house our out-of-town friends and family. The atmosphere exudes peace and was perfectly aligned with our vision for the weekend. Neither one of us wanted to obsess over the “typical and expected” wedding day/weekend issues (for example, having every decoration look perfect to within an inch of its life). We wanted a neurotic-free zone, and Living Waters totally delivered—starting with Bethany and Travis. They are completely calm souls. Bethany answered all of our questions promptly.

The arrangement of the buildings and grounds allowed for a very private and intimate weekend. We enjoyed the hammocks, native plants and appreciated that it was not an overly-manicured environment—it’s an honest, natural setting. Can you tell we despise over-production?
We brought food from our favorite trailers in Austin and availed ourselves of the kitchens to store, heat, and serve the food. Everything we needed was there. And throughout the weekend, Bethany and Travis were there if we needed anything.

Best of all, after our friends and family left, we were able to stay and enjoy a slow afternoon with the hummingbirds, butterflies, and leftover wedding cake. Living Waters is a remarkable venue that will be in our hearts forever. Thank you for everything.
