Overview

About the property

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.

Peaceful, beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The property is so peaceful, you feel much further from Austin than you really are. They had fresh homemade cookies there for us and water. The mattress is also extremely comfortable. Couldn't have asked for a better mini-retreat. Thank you to Carolyn & Cap for sharing their wonderful space.

Carolyn and Cap are truly amazing people

  • 5 of 5

Long story short, my girlfriend and I had made reservations to stay at Carolyn and Cap"s property on Saturday. Friday night our dog Apollo swallowed a button off one of our cushions causing intestinal blockage, requiring surgery. I informed Carolyn and Cap of the situation and that sadly we would not be able to make our reservation but we looked forward to staying with them in the future. Not only did we receive a message of kind, compassionate, and empathetic words concerning our dog's well being, but they offered us a full refund, which they did not in any means have to do. Such compassion is a rare attribute in today's world, especially from strangers we have yet to meet. We might not have been able to stay there this weekend, but I can say without a doubt that if anybody deserves acknowledgement for selfless kindness it is these two great people. We look forward to actually meeting them in the near future and thanking them in person!

Looking forward to another stay!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places to stay, we were greeted by Carolyn and Cap who were so sweet and very welcoming. We enjoyed our stay in Austin and felt right at home. We are definitely looking forward to another weekend getaway.

P.S. Homemade cookies were delicious!

Austin - the Peaceful Side!

  • 5 of 5

Way out West on Bee Cave, close to Lakeway, this inexpensive tranquil jewel has everything I need for business travel. Surrounded by trees, it's quiet, peaceful, off the beaten track and yet close to Whole Foods, great golf courses and Lake Travis. Just a few miles off Capital of Texas Highway, you can avoid the Austin congestion and still access the best the Hill Country has to offer!
