“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 StyleDesigning 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. The Romance Package (couples yoga, 2 massages, and 2 wine tastings) is the perfect pampering add-on to your stay!

At the front entrance, you are met with a beautiful view of the entire property, garden, & 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, massage, 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, fire pit, multiple decks, our air-conditioned floating cabin, & the soothing sounds & sites of nature. Please check availability & lake level when booking. Local attractions: tomato happy hour, wineries, hiking, natural springs, canopy tours, boating/kayaking, shopping, restaurants, & more!

“We pull up our chairs in front of the fireplace on the back porch and sit with a glass of wine, watching the fire and tracking the progress of the sunset. We catch sight of some deer sneaking across the hillside and watching us carefully as black squirrel skitter on the stone steps going down the hill towards the water. The wind picks up and plays a tune on the windchime hanging on the porch and we decide this is the most peaceful place we have vacationed. The house is beautiful with its interesting Southwest decor, and spacious enough to let you relax and really feel at home. There’s an interesting place down the road called the Tomato Bar to purchase delicacies made with tomatoes and homemade bread, and 2 wineries nearby to explore, but the best part is the quiet, serenity if you need to relax and escape the hassle of the city and daily grind. I recommend highly.” Read more Guest Reviews!
