Georgetown apartment description

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. Free 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.

          • 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....moreless

All pots, pans, dishes, and utensils are provided, as well as dish soap and towels. If you don't like to cook, you'll be happy to know there are lots of restaurants nearby, including some that deliver. In addition, we have put several small appliances in the apartment. Coffeepot, slow cooker, mini food processor, etc. Our goal was to provide everything so that guests could bring clothes and not worry about anything else.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      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.

                      Why the Owner 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!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      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.
