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 Georgetown

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..

Best VRBO or AIRBNB IN WHICH I HAVE STAYED

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this lovely home for a week. It is perfectly situated to walk to Georgetown square and to access I-35 too if you need to get on the interstate. Georgetown has many very nice restaurants and a great bakery by the way.

The apartment is located above the garage but completely separated from the main home. There is complete privacy and no noise from the street that I could hear. So quiet, peaceful. Jenel is a perfect host and after making sure we were settled in, if we needed anything just a text would have her responding right away. When we checked in, there was a nice bottle of Merlot on the table, 1/2 and 1/2 in the refrigerator, coffee beans or already ground. Very nice touch.

We spent most of our time in Georgetown or Austin during the day, only coming back around 7. We entered through the garage but you could also go through the gate to the backyard/pool area and into the apartment. Apartment was fully furnished, dozens of DVD's to watch if you wanted, the unit lacked nothing at all.

I wish we could stay over Thanksgiving but Jenel is booked. I can see why. Bottom line, I highly recommend Jenel's apartment for a stay of any amount of time. She did say she had some residents stay for extended periods of time due to their work, so if you are looking for a long term apartment, this is one I would definitely consider.

As I said in the title, this was the best I have stayed at, Jenel is great.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and the special touches. We try to surprise people with little extras that will make them smile. Right now, that includes leftover Halloween candy. :) We want our guest apartment to be a place that feels welcoming to all. Hope to see you again! -Jenel and Larry

Perfect for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is the perfect size, has everything you need (and then some!), and the location can't be beat! Plus the owners are some of the most hospitable people you will ever meet. The pool and outdoor area is so relaxing you don't even know you're in town! Highly recommended!

Cozy & Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our dog and I stayed for a week and found the apartment to be more than adequate for our needs. Well-designed, clean, well-stocked, beautiful pool and comfortable bed and chairs make this cozy apartment a great stay. There is a park right across the street that we frequented with our dog every day. The homeowners, Jenel and Larry, couldn't have been more kind and gracious hosts. They provided for our every need, even loaning us some lawn chairs and cooler so we could enjoy the outdoor concert on the Square. There was so much to see and do in Georgetown that the week flew by too quickly. We highly recommend this rental and hope to come back one day!

Charming, peaceful, beautiful. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Jenel and Larry are by far the best hosts we have stayed with to date! Everything is as described and a must stay if in the area.

Sidiqi is awesome as well! Absolutely adorable he is and Gigi really loved seeing him during our visit! The apartment was exactly as described and there is nothing they left out! Pool and gazebo area are beautiful and relaxing. Georgetown is absolutely beautiful and the location to the historic square area is perfect. Great couple with a beautiful home and we throughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
