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 2011

Why Amber Barnett chose Austin

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Amazing house, location, management, everything!

  • 5 of 5

I hosted my sister's bachelorette party and this house was PERFECT for our time in Austin. We had such a blast that we didn't want to leave. The house was beautiful, clean, fun, and in a great location. The management went above and beyond to help me with restaurants and what bars to visit. I'm getting married 6 months after my sister and we are honestly contemplating returning to Austin and this house for my bachelorette!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

ACL Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Great house- very clean and relatively close to everything downtown. The bedding situation with mostly single people was a little tight but we made it work. Overall great experience...lots of outdoor patio space and very large kitchens....those were to two best amenities at the house. Great owners- very responsive and kept the house very clean.

Fantastic location, fantastic house, fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This house ended up being the lynchpin of a 14 person trip I was responsible for planning to Austin with participants coming from all over the country. Despite an incredibly busy weekend in Austin (ACL and a UT home football game) the hosts were available to discuss the rental with me in the early stages, and didn't try to pressure or bully me into choosing their property.

Ultimately, the group chose this property because of the perceived quality (based on the pictures) and the location (basically next door to Franklins BBQ and walking distance from both 6th St., Rainey and the stadium). I can say without hesitation: the house lived up to the billing. It was incredibly nice, clean and spacious, and comfortably slept all 14 of the guys on our trip. The location also just can't be beat in Austin, it functioned as the home base for everything we did, and I couldn't be happier overall.

The hosts also left helpful notes all over the house regarding use of the house to make our stay easier, which was much appreciated. This trip was a huge success, in large part thanks to the house. If you're considering a rental in Austin, you should absolutely see if this property meets your needs.

Great house, particularly for large groups

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a weekend with a group of eleven and everyone loved the house. Multiple (two indoors, two outdoors) large common areas make spending time as a group easy and enjoyable. The owners have done a great job of utilizing the floor plan to include plenty of beds without creating obnoxious "dormitory" style rooms that you see sometimes in rentals that claim to accommodate large parties. This house truly can accommodate a larger group quite comfortably. Further, the house is recently built, is very clean and well maintained, and is well appointed furniture and fixture wise. Great location, easy access to the reasons you visit Austin.

Amber and Lillie were great to work with, both very nice and very responsive throughout.
