              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About: My name is Amber Barnett, I am the property manager of all three of the Artale's vacation rentals. I was born and raised in Austin, so I have watched our city grow tremendously over the years. I lived in New York City for 4 years and that was an amazing experience, but there is something special about Austin's laid back lifestyle that brought me home. I love this city and look forward to assisting you with your vacation. Please let me know if you need any suggestions on restaurants, bars, activities, shopping and more!

              Why Downtown:
              Location, Location, Location! Enjoy the convenience of walking downtown and the view from the 2nd floor balcony! I love enjoying wine with my friends from the balcony and checking out the skyline view! Such a relaxing place to sit and catch up! I find myself having Wine Wednesdays here with my girlfriends when the house isn't rented.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              When we stay here we usually hang out in the large kitchen and I enjoy the built in coffee maker! In the morning, I open the two patio doors and walk out on to the patio and take a breath of Austin. The balcony is 20x20 with City View and fully furnished. At about 10:00, we put on our tennis shoes and walk to downtown and enjoy a late breakfast or we walk to E. 7th Street and shop at the Farmer's market, coffee shops, eat at the food trucks (yum) and enjoy the music venues that are open everyday!
