Spicewood house description

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. Please check availability when booking.

Local attractions: tomato happy hour, wineries, hiking, natural springs, canopy tours, boating/kayaking, shopping, restaurants, & more!
