“I’m not an energy kind of guy but the energy here is palpable and wonderful… What really makes it a 5-star place is the manager Todd. He was very patient, a great communicator, and did everything he could to make it a memorable and very pleasant stay. His massage skills were also superb and helped with migraines as well as relaxation. Would definitely return.” ~ Chris K. 12/2016

“The atmosphere here made every moment magic, pure magical. This place was very warming and inviting everything plus more than we needed for our couple get away stay.” ~ Stephanie G. 7/2016

“Living Waters is absolutely breathtaking…Wish I could live there. From the moment our family arrived we were welcomed shortly by Todd to answers any questions etc. it was also almost night time and he still came out. The place is so serene and really private. It was perfect for our much needed bonding time. We rented kayaks here and enjoyed the floating boat house for an entire day and loved every moment. I’ve recommended this place to friends and family already and I will definitely be back. Thanks Todd!” ~ Erika E. 8/2016

Best Rental Experience in a Long Time” If anyone wants all the activities of camping with an AC, this place is perfect! We really stayed outside most of the day, the outside areas, boathouse, and River is what really makes this place awesome! Truly felt like a perfect getaway for me my wife…” ~ Russell M. 7/2016

“My best friend booked a much needed girls/bachelorette weekend at Living Waters on Lake Travis for me. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The yoga instructor was absolutely amazing she tailored everything to what we needed to work on, explained everything so well and was just a wonderful person. Then we went on to possibly the best part of the whole weekend – our private massages with Todd. Both my friend and I loved the massages we both walked out of there feeling nothing but zen and relaxation. We kept talking about the massage all day Saturday and Sunday.  Living Waters is a place of no worries. I was completely in the moment and enjoyed every second of it. Todd is an amazing host. He has a very special energy about him that is so calming and you just want him to be your friend. We could always come to him with questions, text him if we needed anything and he always wanted to make sure that everything was okay and that we were happy. I cannot wait to go back to Living Waters, be it with friends, loved ones or just by myself. Whenever I need to recharge or whenever I need a reminder that life is good the way it is, I will go back to Living Waters, to my new happy place.” ~ Anne M. 8/2016

“This was the perfect place for our getaway! They had all of the activities we were looking for such as yoga, kayaking, massages, hiking, wine tastings and floating on the lake. The property manager was extremely responsive prior to our stay and accommodating once we arrived. I definitely plan to come back here.” ~ Michelle L. 8/2016

“Everything was wonderful! Our questions and concerns were taken care of right away and truly had a great time. The area is so beautiful and we wish we could’ve stayed so much longer as it was ultimately a peaceful and romantic get away!” ~ Samantha W. 8/2016

“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. I recommend highly.” ~ Bill

“I booked a personal Yoga treat at Living Waters for my birthday to get away, de-stress, rest, and better my yoga practice. My stay at Living Waters far surpassed my expectations! The Romantic Red Room Eco-Cabin, was comfortable and quaint with modern amenities. I loved the natural light coming in and the ability to leave all the doors open to enjoy the ambiance of the hill country. I highly recommend Living Waters and will definitely return myself!” ~ Cheyanne

“My wife and I were looking for a long needed getaway over Valentines Day and this place did not disappoint. It is just peaceful. The Cottage we stayed in was nice and cozy. The rooms were clean and my wife and I were incredibly pleased to see deer walking through the woods, maybe 25 feet from us. I cannot stress it enough, this place is just a place you have to visit yourself and make your own conclusion.” ~ Jamel

“My wife and I spent our honeymoon at La Casa de Joy and it was amazing!! Very well maintained, every thing from the outside to the inside was clean. We were greeted by a romantic fire place entering the home. It has a fully equipped kitchen with all the pots, pans, and cooking utensils you’ll need. the bedroom is so romantic, there’s a fireplace next to the bed and on the other side is a garden tub that I would advise everyone to take advantage of. There’s also a privite hot tub outside right next to the porch. I would and will recommend this place to anyone looking to getaway and relax.” ~ Ross

“This is such a unique property -it’s like a work of art! My husband and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary here and couldn’t have picked a better place. It was so cozy and had everything we wanted….and more! We enjoyed the indoor and outdoor fireplaces, hot tub, grill and the many patios to sit and enjoy the beautiful views of the lake. There is a winery (Stonehouse Vineyard) within walking distance of the property which is excellent and definitely worth a visit. We also ventured out a bit and checked out the surrounding towns and wineries. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic and relaxing getaway. We definitely look forward to going back! Thanks for everything!” ~ Dani

“I would like to state that the photos do not give the property justice! La Casa De Joy was an awesome vacation. My wife and I were planning on a vacation to get away for a few days from the hustle and bustle of Houston… and a newborn. We arrived and found an environment of peace.” ~ Brock & Kim

“We went to Living Water for our corporate retreat, and what an amazing time it was! Not only is the place stunning, it’s so incredibly peaceful. Like you can feel the energy of the place just exudes serenity. You literally cannot be stressed there! Total heaven! The best part is, it was right here in Austin! I will be back ASAP. Highly recommend this to anyone that just wants to get away for some peace and relaxation (and a little fun of course). Great for kids, couples, groups, families, etc. Loved it!” ~ Tabitha & Eric
“Our wedding held at Living Waters was nothing short of magical. As soon as we stepped through the front gate, we knew we found the venue we’d been looking for. There is a sacred, peaceful, harmonious energy here, along with stunning natural grounds and buildings with unique architecture that is at turns modern, funky and homey. We were looking to get married under a canopy of wise old trees. We wanted to choose our own vendors. And we wanted to work with kind, communicative, honest, warm folks. And we didn’t want to have to harvest our organs to pay for it. We had the wedding of our dreams. A wedding we believe truly reflected us and our union. We cannot recommend Living Waters more highly.” ~ Christine & Nathan
“I got to spend 3 days in Blue and Lodge and the Romantic Red Room and it was gorgeous. I spent the whole time there and didn’t see another soul, even during the times I went strolling over the grounds. At one point it rained and I felt like I was living in my own little Universe where the air is clean, the food is fresh and the whole world loves me. I can’t wait to go back.” ~ Andrea

“Rented all the eco cabins over the weekend with a group of friends. What a great place to stay! Grilled out, sat in front of fire pit making smores and just relaxed. Very interesting property and architecture. It was awesome having your own living space. The property is very close to a vineyard, one of the prettiest vineyards I’ve seen in awhile. Would definitely return to property for another relaxing weekend.” ~ Rob
