About Lawrence Romero

Tom and Debbie: We started our married life here in Georgetown in 2006. Tom has lived and worked in Georgetown for the past 20+ years. We started Green Earth Builders together in 2005 and purchased and remodel the property you will be staying in. Our first home together was an historic house on Main Street. Our second home was another historic home on Elm Street. We lovingly remodel both of these homes. We are now almost finished with our present old home on Wilbarger Point which overlooks Southwestern University and Georgetown. We have a passion for restoration and decorating. Green Earth Builders helps sponsor the annual Heritage Society Holiday Home tour. Our own and several of our client’s homes have been featured over the years.

Lawrence Romero purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Lawrence Romero chose Texas Hill Country

After looking nationwide, we feel that Georgetown offers the best balance of small town charm and friendliness in comparison to “Big City Livin”

What makes this cottage unique

Location! Location! Location!

The main house was built on the square and dragged by mule teams to its present location in the 1880’s. There is no closer vacation rental to the Historic County Square.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the place. Everything that I required was there and your

anticipation of our needs was incredible. I loved the quietness and lovely

outdoor space. I will definitely stay there again when I travel to Austin,

if it isn't rented. (I fear that it won't be available if other travelers

find out what a great deal it is.)

Cute carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this carriage house with all the old world charm and all the modern amenities. It appeared to have been recently renovated, and everything was sparkling clean! The kitchen had plenty of dishes and pots and pans, even a Keurig coffee maker if you're into that. It's on a quiet street in historic Georgetown, surrounded by beautiful old houses, yet only a short walk away to several restaurants and shops. Lawrence, the owner, was very welcoming and responsive to my questions. I would definitely stay here again if I'm in the area!

Very nice property. Small outdoor sitting area. And a block from downtown.

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the cleaning crew were just starting. And as they seemed confused as to which unit we would be in, I made a call to the property manager. He arrived within minutes. He apologized and was very nice. And upgraded us to a bigger unit.

So a small bump to start bUT he handled it. And the rest of our stay was perfect.

The decor is so nice. Hard wood floors. Antique wardrobe and furniture. And lots of decor around the wall.

Large pocket doors divided the bedroom and livingroom. Once closed the bedroom was nice and dark. And the bed comfortable. A warning here. A quick nap will turn in to a two hour slumber. Nice for a Sunday afternoon.
