Get Away Cabin @ Mandala Hills

1 Glamping
This sacred land is an oasis for healing in nature. It is undeveloped and solely used for private stays and small events/ ceremonies. You will feel a wave of comfort the moment you arrive. Secluded and private, find yourself connecting to the land with your friends, family, or yourself, here at Mandala Hills. Surrounded by oaks and cedar trees, you can relax in nature. The area has incredible sunrises and sunsets, so close to downtown but feels like you're far away in the country. There may be wellness classes being held further down the property. You are more than welcome to attend. Hiking, swimming, and kayaking are within a 20-minute drive! These destinations include Barton Springs, Lady Bird Lake, and Wildflower Centerlots.  Art and food are close as well when venturing into Austin which is also only 20 minutes from our oasis. Other cities are not too much further with Johnson City, Fredericksburg, San Marcos, and Dripping springs being 45 minutes or less of a drive.  A bit about us.  We are a family of 4 who lives on the land next door. This is sacred Native land where you can feel the healing energy. You may even find an arrowhead. The host is here if you need them, but you are able to enjoy your solitude. Respect the land and the cabin, they are very special. This is not a party place, rather a place to just BE.

We loved the beautiful deck and views. The house has so many details and Valerie really thought of everything- she's a great host! Off the beaten path and the cabin is so private with easy access to Austin and the hill country. Thanks so much!

Anniversary Trip with the Pups
My husband and I spent two nights in The Getaway Cabin, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. Our 2 dogs accompanied us, and we all had a great time! The cabin is small, but not "tiny" house small...perfect for a small group. Valerie has gone out of her way to make sure each space is well appointed, from the primary bed piled with comfy pillows to the various bath salts and bubbles to accompany you in the huge soaker tub! The kitchen is nicely stocked as well. The outdoor areas are wonderful! We enjoyed sitting on the lovely deck, as well as walking the dogs around the property. The property is quiet and peaceful.

Just a stunning place, with everything you could want or need for the perfect getaway. I felt like I was a million miles away, but just outside the city. All the best parts of a resort, camping, lodge... so special and I wish everyone could get the chance to relax like I have!

Magical Weekend
This cabin was serene, very private, and wonderfully set up. The scenery, to begin, is well maintained but rugged and natural. Absolutely gorgeous views at sunrise and sunset. The deck was lovely and provided a good variety of seating. The inside was decorated in a rustic but practical manner, and the record player was a perfect touch. The kitchen, however pocket-sized, was well stocked with utensils and pans! Perfectly fine for a weekend of home cooked meals and snacks, or heated leftovers. Moving on, the beds are so comfortable, and the bedroom stays dark enough to sleep in past sunrise if desired. The bathroom, though, was beyond amazing! A tub fit for two (a close two) not to mention the view from the shower!! So relaxing. This is a perfect get away for a couple, or even a small outdoorsy family. Very Covid safe as well, we did not interact with anyone face to face and the cabin was well cleaned and sanitized when we arrived! Would recommend to anyone, thank you for being such a great and kind host Valerie!!

There’s nothing like this place. The setting is beautiful, the cabin itself has many hidden gems, and there’s lots to walk around and see on the property. Also a hop skip from local spots for some river swimming, resupplies, tacos, and hiking! Can’t wait to visit this place again!

How magical and peaceful it was to getaway for a bit! Valerie has created a great space to do exactly just that, the loft was my favorite space and the soaking tub and outdoor shower were both lovely. There is a bit of an ant problem, to be expected I suppose with a cabin in the middle of the foliage, but lucky we found some pest spray under the sink and kept it handy for when we needed it. Great sanctuary to clear your mind and getaway for a bit!

Mandala Hills - Healing Heart Yurt
Yurt me!? Yurt you!!
What can I say other than it’s awesome to stay at a yurt in the hill country! My fiancé and I came from Houston for wedding plan arrangements in Austin on Memorial Day weekend, but also to get away and relax from the hustle and bustle of city life. Valerie was an excellent hostess with a well thought out property, accommodating us even before our arrival via good communication to find the nicely secluded location! The private entrance with a twisting uphill gravel road to the yurt made us feel like we were heading for a great adventure! The yurt itself was called the Healing Heart, and Valerie greeted us with nice big hugs!! She discussed the accommodations and gave great recommendations around the area to eat/drink! The yurt had a nice A/C and mini fridge, and a cool record player with eclectic options such as Hungarian folklore (which we kept playing over and over). Who would’ve thought!! The sofa bed had comfortable memory foam. She had extra blankets and towels, organic coffee and tea, and a couple of chairs outside to enjoy the morning coffee or night sky! We regret not taking advantage of preparing a campfire. The bathrooms were a few steps away and well lit at night, and had both plush and Turkish towels. The shower was incredible with a huge rainfall shower head!! We enjoyed the property for 2 nights, and left wishing we could have stayed 1 more night. It was nice to wake up to the sunlight entering the central dome on yurt ceiling, and also to hear the birds sing as opposed to loud traffic! We look forward to returning back soon, and definitely recommend the unique experience! Keep up the good work Valerie!!

What a perfect getaway cabin in the woods! The cabin was well stalked with more than we had expected and Valerie was available for any questions readily. The cabin was clean and all the beds were so comfy. The view from the outdoor shower was breathtaking and we enjoyed s’mores on the hilltop fire. Would definitely stay again with the pups.

We loved this cabin and it was the perfect place to say goodbye to 2020. The host is wonderful and very responsive. The cabin has wonderful touches inside, is incredibly comfortable and the top floor has the best views. We can’t wait to come back!

Don’t overlook this place!
This place is much better than expected. All the finishings inside are top notch, and feels much bigger than it looks. I am going to recommend this to my friends and will be back. So relaxing!!!

Awesome Stay!
I loved this place so much! I recommend it to anyone wanting to spend some time away from the busy world and relax! It's close enough to Austin so if you want to spend time downtown it's easily accessible. The host is so nice and helpful which of course made the experience even better.
