About Amber Barnett

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!

Amber Barnett purchased this house in 2013

Why Amber Barnett chose East Downtown

This house is gorgeous and I wish I lived here! Everything about this house is just so fabulous! The location is awesome and you can be the first in line at the World Famous Franklin's Bar-B-Que! Enjoy the 2nd floor balcony and the all the beds this house to offer! The location is prime and you can walk out the front door and explore Austin!

What makes this house unique

This house is a new build and just finished construction in April of 2013! No one lives here, so you feel as if you are staying in a large hotel! The large oak tree in the front makes you feel like you are in Texas!

The beauty of a vacation rental vs. several small hotel rooms is that everyone wakes up together, cooks together, eats together, all under one roof. If your time in Austin and being together is most important then you have made the right choice of staying in a house!

Excellent experience, great location, easy interaction!

  • 5 of 5

My group had a fantastic time staying here. The location is about as central as can be for a house this size in Austin. Amber made it an easy and convenient experience from the start. The house is giant and easily accommodates 10+ folks. I highly recommend the location and house for a group stay.

My staff and I stayed in this comfy, gorgeous home while we attended an Early Childhood conference in Austin. All I can say was it was perfect! Amber was absolutely wonderful to work with and she made sure the home was a great "home away from home"! Thank you very much! We'll be back next year!
