Our property is located just west of downtown Austin and our home and our guest house are situated on 2 1/4 acres. We named it Campo de Paz (Place/Country of Peace) because it a very tranquil location and space. Here, you are just outside the hustle of the city, yet close enough to enjoy the best of both worlds; rejuvenate yourself in the countryside or explore all that Austin has to offer. Better yet, do both! The choice is yours! You are just minutes away from both Lake Austin, Lake Travis, The Hill Country Galleria, and plenty of great restaurants. Relax on your own private deck and watch for deer! Listen for owls and in the spring, you might be lucky enough to hear the whippoorwills. The charming one bedroom (approximately 255 square feet), one bath guest house is furnished with a comfy queen bed, walk-in shower, plenty of closet space, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and electric kettle. Gourmet Nespresso coffee and a selection of Tazo teas are provided. Freshly made chocolate chip cookies or other goodies will be waiting for you when you arrive. Free wi-fi is available along with a 32' TV (99 channels).

About Carolyn and Cap Brooks
We love to travel and have a passion for collecting folk art and for cooking. Japan, Australia, Mexico, Italy, France and England are a few of the places we've traveled. We love to stay in Bed and Breakfasts and were inspired to build one of our own. We each have a background in fine arts and have taught art both privately and in schools for years. We designed and built the house ourselves. The current guest house was once part of Carolyn's ceramics studio. We have just listed our guest house on VRBP/HomeAway and we look forward to hosting visitors to Austin and the Lake Travis/Lake Austin area.
Carolyn and Cap Brooks purchased this Apartment in 1982
Why Carolyn and Cap Brooks chose Aqua Monte
When we were first married, we found this piece of property and bought it. We love Austin and wanted to settle down in a place that we built. the neighborhood has grown over the years but our property still makes you feel you are in a very private, secluded, and peaceful place.

The perfect little getaway!
Words can not say how much we enjoyed our stay here. It was peaceful and cute. They thought of every detail. They were the best host but you had your privacy and never felt like you were bothered. The cookies and muffins were wonderful. I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday. We enjoyed sitting outside and listening to nature in the evening. We will definitely be back and tell others about this relaxing getaway.
Thanks so much, Stacy. Can't wait to have toy back.
Quiet peaceful lovely property. The best choc chip cookies
Carolynn was wonderful. Highly recommend this place. Off the beaten path but close enough to get into town!
Glad you had a good visit! Hope you can come again next time you are in Austin.
Quiet and Restful
A great place for couples looking for a quiet, peaceful,comfortable room near the city but with the feel of a country get away. Carolyn and Cap were wonderful hosts. The room has its own front porch and some beautiful walking paths. We highly recommend!!
Glad you discovered our little nature trail. Come back when you can stay longer.
Relaxing and wonderful stay
Cap and Carolyn were amazing! They showed us around when we first arrived and then made sure we knew they were a phone call away if we needed anything. They left us a personalized card with homemade cookies (which were so good, seriously my husband couldn't stop talking about them). We got to sit outside and enjoy the scenery plus wildlife. We ended needing to book our stay last minute (day of) and they were amazing in accommodating us. We've stayed in Austin multiple times and this was by far one of the best stays. They're on the west side of Austin which has the best scenery. Thank you again.
Great weekend getaway!
The pictures do not do this place justice! It’s a beautiful, peaceful place to relax & let go of all the stress life has to offer. Carolyn & Cap were wonderful hosts. We are looking forward to planning another trip here.
P.S. The cookies were great!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Sorry about all the rain on Friday. We look forward to seeing you next time!
