Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Fully furnished guest apartment/corporate housing apartment in Georgetown, Texas, just north of Austin. Available for short-term or long-term rentals at a great rate! Located in downtown Georgetown, closer to the Square than any hotel. In-unit washer and dryer. Satellite TV. Wifi internet. Linens and dishes provided. All utilities included.

This delightful vacation rental apartment is above the garage of a beautiful home in a quiet Old Town neighborhood, Georgetown's historic district. 7 blocks away is the Georgetown Square (recently named The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas). The Square boasts many restaurants and charming shops. Walking distance to Southwestern University and St. David's Hospital in Georgetown, Texas. There is a washer and dryer inside the apartment for guests' exclusive use. We provide the laundry soap. Guests are also welcome to use the private back yard swimming pool, weather permitting.

The apartment has a bedroom with pillow-top queen sized bed and ample closet room. (This is a true one-bedroom furnished apartment, not a studio apartment.) High thread-count sheets will give you a good night's sleep. Down a short hallway and around the corner is the living area. One person can watch TV in the living area without disturbing the other's sleep, which we feel is so important when two people are traveling together. In the living area, you can kick back with your feet up, watch TV with DirecTV satellite or pop a movie into the DVD player. You'll also find a table for two, and a kitchen complete with full-size refrigerator, stove, and microwave. All utensils, dishes, and linens are provided.

Guests have full use of the private swimming pool with luxury lounge chairs, barbecue grill, and enclosed gazebo in the back yard. We want you to enjoy your stay, and we'll do everything we can to make sure you're comfortable.

The Georgetown Texas vacation rental apartment is also the perfect long-term corporate housing stay, available for one week, one month, six months, or longer. Without exception, our long-term guests have been completely satisfied with our guest apartment as a corporate housing option. It's a fully furnished apartment in Georgetown, Texas, and there aren't many of those out there. With utilities included, this home-away-from-home is more affordable than a hotel or B&B and even comparable extended stay options... and much nicer, in our opinion. Certainly quieter and more private.

About Jenel Looney

About the owner: We lived overseas for many years and traveled extensively during that time. We created this guest apartment as the kind of place we enjoyed staying when visiting Europe and Australia. A self-catered apartment, if you will, someplace clean and quiet, with a full kitchen so guests don't have to eat out every single meal. While we enjoyed visiting restaurants during our travels, it was also really nice (and more affordable) to be able to spend quiet time at in our long-term, furnished apartment. We really want this vacation rental/corporate housing apartment to feel like home to our guests while they're visiting us. Larry is a retired aircraft mechanic and Jenel works from home as a virtual assistant, which is a fancy way of saying she does secretarial and administrative work from home. We have a loving but rambunctious dog named Sidiqi. (Pronounced suh-DEE-kee.) Sidiqi means friend in Arabic, and he is an abundantly friendly dog. He's a golden retriever/poodle mix (a goldendoodle), and he has never met a person he didn't like. No, love. The moment he sees you, he will feel an instant, pure, deep, and abiding love for you. That's just the kind of dog he is.

Jenel Looney purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jenel Looney chose Texas Hill Country

This apartment is above the garage at our home. We built the apartment for our friends and family and decided to make it available as a vacation rental when it was vacant. We lived for ten years overseas. The vacation rental apartment is the kind of holiday stay we enjoyed renting when vacationing in Europe. With a full kitchen, comfortable chairs, separate bedroom, and a washer & dryer, the apartment has everything you need for a comfortable vacation. SO much better than a hotel!

What makes this apartment unique

Our home is across the street from Old Town Park, within walking distance to the Georgetown Square (7 blocks), Southwestern University, and St. David's Hospital - closer than any hotel in Georgetown Texas. Just 10 minutes from our door to the Round Rock Premium Outlets, and 25 miles to 6th Street in downtown Austin. We are about 10 minutes away from Sun City, Texas. Our back yard is very popular with guests. We have nice outdoor furniture beside the pool and beneath a screened-in gazebo. Very comfortable outdoor living. When we have guests in the apartment, we generally close the shades on our house, giving our guests what is essentially a private back yard with a pool. We try to be available for guests who have questions, while also respecting our guests' privacy. The apartment is above our detached garage, so you will be able to come and go freely, without feeling like you're being watched at all times. Any time you need something, you can call or come knock on our door, but otherwise, you don't need to see us at all. This is not like a bed and breakfast, where you interact every day with the owners. You might meet us when you check in, but then you won't see us again unless you need something.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We sure enjoyed being there and I was talking with Patti just the other day...that we needed to come to Georgetown again soon..

A Glorious Week in Georgetown, Texas

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for the first time in Georgetown, Texas, and our week there could not have been better.

First, the one bedroom apartment we stayed in above the owners unattached garage was absolutely beautiful. It is made for only two people, and we loved the way the rooms were designed, the furniture was chosen and arranged, the apartment was decorated and all the items that were provided for our stay. We had everything in the apartment where we could cook a complete meal and eat it at a table for two. The owners even provided a bottle of wine for us to share during our meal. In back of the garage is an in ground swimming pool that is surrounded by a seven foot fence for our privacy. We could use the pool anytime we wanted to and did. Also at the pool, a large gas grill is provided for our use and a private covered table and chairs is just off the pool for us to enjoy snacks or a complete meal...we used it for both!

Second, we very much enjoyed the city of Georgetown. It is rich in history, the arts, biking and walking trails, outstanding golf options, and the best and most beautiful town square we have ever seen. We were about six blocks from the square and spent lots of time walking there to enjoy the shops, breweries, antique stores, visitors center and very diverse options for interesting restaurants. The food in every restaurant we visited was delicious, and the people serving were welcoming and very friendly. We also traveled from our apartment to visit the LBJ Ranch in Johnson City, and the LBJ Library in Austin. We loved everything about those two experiences.

In closing, we honestly don't think we could have chosen a better place to stay in Texas, and hope to go back to Georgetown again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, David, for the wonderful review, and most importantly, for staying with us and being such delightful guests. We're so glad you enjoyed your visit, and that you took advantage of the full kitchen in the apartment AND all the restaurant options within walking distance! You got lucky that we've had a warm winter, and you were able to use the pool in February. And you got to see all of roses blooming. You're welcome back any time. Hope to see you again.

Lovely Apartment with Everything You Could Possibly Want in a Lovely Little Town

  • 5 of 5

Jenel and Larry's place was a true gem of a vacation spot. Located only 27 miles from Austin, we were able to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the big city of Austin, as well as enjoy the quiet of small town living in Georgetown. The Looney's spared no detail in designing this vacation home that included all the comforts of home and more. The refrigerator and pantry were stocked with drinks, condiments, and cooking supplies. There were books and magazines for your reading pleasure and a great selection of movies to watch. The place was immaculate, comfortable, and well-decorated. Jenel and Larry were very gracious hosts and should we ever find ourselves in the Austin area again, we will most definitely stay here .

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Suzanne and Ramon! We loved having you here, and especially love that you took advantage of all the things to do around here. It's wonderful that visitors can check out bikes for the day from the Visitors Center or the Library. The fact that you rode on the beautiful hike & bike trails all the way up to Lake Georgetown is very inspiring! You had the perfect weather for it, for sure, with all the wildflowers in bloom. Hope to see you again! Jenel and Larry

Perfect experience

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. Clean, quiet, well stocked with necessities, comfortable bed, and great attention to detail from Jenel and Larry. Easy walking distance to downtown and the town square where there are several good restaurants. The location is easy to get to from I-35. It was too cold to use the pool but it looked very inviting. Since our son lives in Austin (30 minutes to his house) and we are checking out nearby retirement areas, we will be back.

Wonderful !!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Larry and Jenel's guest apartment from August 2016 through February 2017, and it was ideal for my longterm stay. Everything I needed was in the apartment. It was comfortable and well stocked. I travel a lot for work, and I never know exactly when I'm going to be transferred. I really appreciated Larry and Jenel's flexibility and communication. I highly recommend this rental to anyone.

Very lovely with lots of care put into the rental

  • 5 of 5

I am currently staying in the lovely rental, and I have to say that, while I use Homeaway a good deal and have always had pleasant experiences, I'm not sure that I have ever stayed in another rental that provided this much attention to detail in things that are offered in the apartment to make the guest comfortable and really feel like they are in a "home away from home." Also, the care that has been put into decorating the apartment is very evident. It is comfortable with some really lovely touches. Sadly, I usually forget to write these reviews. However, I did not want to let this one go by without writing this review. The listing for the property is entirely accurate, it is very clean, and the owners are lovely (they are very friendly when you speak with them, but really let you have your privacy as well). The rental is very close and convenient to the town square and the university; it really is a gem in Georgetown. Highly recommended. I have been very impressed and pleased.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for better hosts then the Looney's you won't find any. Extremely helpful and accommodating throughout the whole process. The kitchen was well stocked with all the extras so we only had to buy our main ingredients for cooking. Enjoyed the pool just about every day. Apartment was clean and up to date. Very private arrangement. Even though I didn't need anything I always felt that if I did the Looney's would be right there to meet my needs. We will be back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for mentioning all the little extras we keep in the apartment (mayonnaise, cooking oil, flour, spices, etc.) We try to make it as convenient as possible for our guests. Glad, too, that you enjoyed the pool! You're welcome back any time!

The queen size bed has a luxurious pillow-top mattress, and we use only high thread count sheets. There are several pillows available from which you can choose. There is ample closet space. Heavy blinds allow you to block out the sun when you want, or open them to get natural light. There are wall-mounted reading lamps on either side of the bed and a digital alarm clock/radio at one side. The central heat & air conditioning unit is for the apartment only, so you can set the temperature that is most comfortable for you.
