Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 25, 2016
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 the Owner

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.

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!

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in a vacation rental - and it was wonderful. Jenel and Larry were so very gracious and the apartment is setup with everything you could possibly need. It is in a great location, just a short pleasant walk into the town square area. There is a beautiful pool, which sadly due to the weather we did not use (but we'll be back!) The apartment is very clean, comfortable and quiet. We were in town to review the area as a possible retirement location, Jenel recommended her good friend Sheila, after spending the afternoon with Sheila we realized that this is the place for us and we look forward to working with her - and look forward to staying again in this rental. Thank you to our wonderful hosts. Lynn & Michael

Delightful accommodations for two in great location exceeding all expectations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks here with our primary agenda being to visit our daughter and newborn grandchild living only a few blocks away. This apartment looked too good to be true in terms of both location, facility, amenities, and very reasonable price. It sounds small, and is, but the efficient use of space gives it all the comforts of home, and views from the 2nd floor windows open it up. We spent a lot of time in the apartment and cooked most of our own meals. They keep it very well stocked with kitchen/bathroom/laundry staple items, so all you really need to buy is most of your own perishable food (although the refrigerator was nicely stocked with condiments and such). They even provided the laundry detergent. The place is fairly new, very clean, well equipped and luxuriously decorated. We really liked having access to the host's private pool and back yard, which is gorgeously landscaped. Very private entry through the garage (they provide a remote opener, or you can use the breezeway through the beautiful back yard), such that we hardly ever saw our hosts, other than when they generously invited us to take shelter in the main house with them during a tornado warning -- that turned into a very enjoyable visit with a delightful couple. Wi-Fi enabled me to work my job remotely. This is absolutely our new first choice in Georgetown.

Owner's Response: What a fun review! We enjoyed having you here and, although we don't hope for tornado sirens to go off regularly, it was really nice to have a glass of wine with you both while we waited for the warning to expire. You're welcome back any time, and we hope to see you often as your grandson grows up.

Nice apartment with great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 days here while exploring Georgetown and nearby attractions. The apartment was clean, well appointed and centrally located. The Looneys were wonderful hosts and were available to offer suggestions and answer questions. The kitchen was well stocked and we prepared many of our meals there. The washer and dryer dedicated to the apartment came in handy with our longer than usual stay. The property is an easy walk to the town square where we participated in the First Friday event and enjoyed Tex-Mex meals at Dos Salsas. And you don't want to miss trying a meal at the Monument Café...delicious and nutritious! As we are considering relocating to the Georgetown area, we visited the public library, tennis facility and rec center. All were very impressive. I highly recommend this property. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us, and for bringing your four-legged family member! It was fun to see the dogs playing together. Hope you were able to walk to some of the dog-friendly restaurants. Georgetown just keeps getting better.

Great location, quiet rental

  • 5 of 5

Georgetown Rental. Great place to rent. Quiet, Clean, fully serviced and qreat location. City Park across the street. Owners are super people and leave you alone. Lovely back yard with pool and the cabana is most inviting. Will be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We do try to give our guests privacy when they're outside using the pool, cabana, or grill. Sometimes, though, their dogs are so cute that we have to go say hi every once in a while!

Location

From the Owner

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!

Amenities

From the Owner

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.

  • The bedroom is completely separate from the rest of the apartment. (In other words, this is a one-bedroom furnished apartment, not a studio.) We, the owners, lived overseas for years and traveled for extended stays many times. We set up this apartment to be the kind of place in which we would've been happy to stay for a month. When one guest wakes in the middle of the night, you can go to the living room/kitchen to read or watch TV without disturbing your partner. 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.
