|Space||300 sq. ft.|
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).
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
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.
Great place for us to relax the night before a marathon. Super sweet owners and nice, quiet setting.
The owners were really friendly and greeted me as soon as I pulled up to the property. They walked me through how to work everything then they bolted to let me enjoy my time there. They even had cookies in the room! The room was very clean, spacious, and had everything I needed. The bed was pretty comfortable (always important). I'd recommend a plug next to the bed to charge your phone on the night stand. Also, I had to wake up just before sunrise, but I could see if the uncovered high windows and sheer curtains only on another window might make it hard to sleep later. I had to leave early as well; otherwise, I would have loved to enjoy my coffee on the patio that felt secluded with a little more nature than Houston.
My wife and I stayed at Carolyn and Cap's retreat for two days. They are very warm, friendly, and accommodating hosts. I would highly recommend Paz if you're looking for, well, a retreat. The residence is nestled in the heart of the Hill Country, a quiet, serene neighborhood where the deer roam freely and the owls hoot you to sleep.
We stayed here the last two days of a two week trip after a week at the Gulf Coast and several days in San Antonio. It was so nice to come back to the quiet and solitude of this property in the evening after spending the day in Austin. It was well equipped, very clean, and comfortable. Definitely recommend!
Highly recommended. Fantastic service and exactly what we needed for the night of our wedding. Thanks so much to Carolyn and Cap.
Clean, welcoming, and a perfect setup for a weekend get away! Definitely our favorite place to stay in Austin!
The property is close to major shopping areas, cinemas, restaurants, and spas. We are 15 minutes from Austin City Limits Music Festival site and very close to three area parks, all of which have great hiking trails. Austin's Barton Springs Pool is just 15 minutes away. We are 20 minutes from the Arboretum shopping area and 25 minutes from The Domain, Austin's premier shopping enclave.
