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 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.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Larry and Jenel are lovely! This was a very welcoming, comfortable stay while attending a week long intense trauma training.
This little apt. Is a true gem, location is the best and very dog friendly
Jenel and Larry are truly two of the best people around. Thank you so very much for being so
Understanding of our issues, really hope to get back again. Lots to see in the area.
A fantastic rental! Very clean with everything you could need. Great location next to Georgetown square!
One of if not the best vrbo’s we have ever visited.
We were in Georgetown on a family mission. It was so nice to come home in the evenings to a beautiful apartment. We will return again when we have more time to enjoy the amenities of this lovely place
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay. And yes, please come back and stay with us again!
Loved this well appointed apartment. It made our stay while in Georgetown
Pristine clean, beautifully decorated, fully equipped kitchen, stackable washer and dryer, lots of extras you won’t find in most hotels or anywhere. Extras included laundry detergent, ground coffee, condiments, large DVD collection along with cable TV, pool use and separate entrance to the apartment above a 2.5 garage below it. Owners live on premise and respect your privacy while being friendly and welcoming. The home and surrounding yard are well maintained. Could not have hoped for anything more.
Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
A hidden gem!
Perfect little getaway in Georgetown! Close enough to walk to the square and comfortable enough to hideaway in all weekend! Definitely a thumbs up place!
Thank you, Ann! So glad you made full use of the kitchen. Not everyone wants to cook while they're here--and there are lots of restaurants to help them avoid it--but I always love it when guests break out the pots and pans. :) Hope to see you again!
