Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Aqua Monte - Campo de Paz

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 Austin

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.

Property was clean, peaceful, stylish, and very accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the wooded retreat in the West Lake hills above Austin. It was Not too far from the city, and near plenary of dining options. Major highways were all several miles away and easy to access. Hosts were friendly, helpful, and very accommodating.

Great little quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. There were fresh cookies waiting for us. Plenty of coffee for the next morning. A fridge and microwave in room. Our hosts greeted us upon arrival and then disappeared (in a good way). We felt very private and special.

Fantastic Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Cap & Carolyn's place for Austin City Limits and it was perfect for us. Everything was as described and well cared for. Cap and Carolyn were great hosts, extremely welcoming and helpful, and provided us with the legendary, complimentary chocolate chip cookies as well as a lovely breakfast (on request, for a very reasonable $15). Highly recommended!

Fantastic, tranquil spot that is close to everything in Austin

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn and Cap have a beautiful spot, and were extremely hospitable. They have done a great job to make their guest retreat a comfortable spot. We enjoyed our time resting on the outside deck. We would definitely stay again!! And Carolyn's cookies are out of this world!

Peace & Serenity of a well manicured wooded enclave!

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn and Cap are awesome hosts. The unit is totally private, tucked into a peaceful wooded space and surrounded by fabulous landscaping. You've got a private deck too. I wish it had a kitchen - if it did I'd probably move in! - but everything else you need is there.

This is about 100 times better than any hotel in Austin.
