Just featured on CBS's show "STAYCATION!" Enchantment and tranquility embody our Whimsical Lakeside Romantic Retreat property nestled in the hill country on Lake Travis, just outside of Austin, TX. This magical space is the perfect backdrop for a variety of special events, including weddings, corporate retreats, yoga and mindfulness retreats, reunions, birthdays, girl's weekends and bachelorette parties, & many other special occasions. 7 total accommodations starring a Luxury Straw Bale Villa, 3 Eco-Cabins, a Cottage, and 2 Unique Safari Tents. Our main house, 'La Casa de Joy,' is a stunning luxury straw bale villa (once featured on HGTV) that is truly the perfect gathering space for a variety of special occasions and memorable events. Originally built by an artist & healer, her creative intention and style is felt throughout the entire property. Living Waters is blessed with an abundance of nature, including deer, birds, butterflies, crickets, hummingbirds, & more. You may wake up to the deer sleeping just outside your accommodation. Indulge you and your group by taking advantage of our on-site private yoga, massage, personal training, and facial services, and kayak, canoe, and stand-up paddle board rentals. We recommend local activities such as a wine tasting at Stone House Vineyard (walking distance), a swim/picnic at Krause Springs spring-fed pool, or an eco-adventure at Cypress Valley Canopy Tours. This unique property is a tranquil and rejuvenating respite in the hill country on Lake Travis, therefore it's not ideal for loud parties. We love animals, but we are a non-pet-accommodating property due to the abundant wildlife present. We look forward to making memories with you....

Lakefront Cottage w/Kayaks & SUPs!
This place is amazing! It’s gorgeous, comfortable beds, and has great coffee. We had a blast! The lake was too low to access it easily, but if we had rented a kayak we possibly would’ve swam there. But we went to Krause springs nearby instead and it was awesome! I’d love to stay here again. Such a cool place!

Magical Lakefront Eco Cabin Getaway
Beautiful place!
It’s such a beautiful property and the owners have gone above and beyond to build such a cool spot near the lake! This weekend was ridiculously hot, but each cabin we rented had very cold AC. The beds were comfortable and love that each cabin has a shower. Two of them even have a very large bathtub! I was also happy that each cabin has a small fridge, a coffee pot with quality complimentary coffee and not a Keurig pod machine. Our host was very generous when our accommodations became complicated. I received excellent communication from him and found him to be extremely pleasant to speak with. I was impressed that he even found a yoga instructor last minute for our group. The place is cool, the owner is cool, and I’d definitely stay there again. Unfortunately the water is super low right now, so we were not able to easily get into the lake. But we went to Krause Springs to swim for the afternoon instead and loved it. The 15 min drive there was worth it. We paid $10 to get in, ate snow cones, swam under the waterfall and into the cave. I recommend staying at this Hipcamp and then making a day adventure to Krause Springs. We had an amazing weekend!

Relaxing hammock dayz
We loved the room, the bathroom and the view from the room and the dark night sky to look at. A gorgeous hammock outside to lie on while watching and listening to the birds. We had the whole place to ourselves on a weeknight which was so fab. Would be awesome if guests could control the fan temp and power. The coffee maker has a really bright light and the fridge hums quite loud; both these things are about 4ft from the end of the (lovely & comfortable bed) so it does affect the Zen vibe somewhat, but if you're used to this kind of noise nearby at home then it mightn't worry you.

Kayaking glamping
Fun glamping experience! Kayaking and swimming in the lake was refreshing, the upstair’s cottage had a lot of natural light coming in.
