About Brooke Roeder Andrus

Emerson Guest Properties was established in 2011, and is owned and operated by Brooke Roeder Andrus, a long time Austin resident.

She first became involved in the business by renting her own property as a short-term rental, and quickly found it to be something she both enjoyed and excelled at. It was her desire to provide an experience that would exceed guests' expectations and she developed the skills and know-how needed to do so via the hands-on experience of managing her own rental. It didn't take long for other like-minded property owners to notice her knack and recruit her help.

Brooke built Emerson Guest Properties with the goal of directly facilitating positive guest experiences and providing the upmost of care for the homes she represents. She treats every guest with great care and consideration, and treats every home she manages like she would her own.

Whether you are a guest looking to have a great experience staying in a short-term rental, or a property owner looking for a manager who focuses on the highest quality of service possible – look no further, Emerson Guest Properties is right for you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This place was great for my weekend trip to Austin! My friends and I had a great time. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We actually rented a car, but this location was very close to a lot of the places we wanted to visit, including South Congress. Brooke was very helpful and responsive when we had last minute questions about getting to the house, etc.

Reviewer Comments:

The accommodation was very nice overall. Super clean space with a well-stocked kitchen, bathroom and laundry unit. Location was perfect for the many sites in Austin's South Congress area and the neighborhood was quiet and pleasant. Host was responsive and helpful. The driveway was a bit challenging as it is very steep, but I was able to master the quick upward angle. I'd recommend the place for shorter visits. We were there for 2 months, and it was a bit small for that length of time/ We did know it would be tight to be honest. Overall great stay in a great city!

Enjoyed this perfect location near St. Edward's University for our son's baseball tournament. Enjoyed the beautiful, diverse neighborhood, free public swimming pools nearby and all of the delicious restaurant options Austin offers. Our hostess graciously accommodated our last minute booking. We've stayed in VRBOs across the country and will be back to this one when we travel to Austin! It was spotless with plenty of extra blankets, pillows and towels. Great kitchen set up and easy access to wifi and TV channels.

Reviewer Comments:

Had a great experience- the place was clean, quiet, felt safe- was perfect for a girl's weekend- 4 of us stayed here. Really appreciated the nice touches like coffee in the kitchen, blowdryer in the bathroom- the place was well-stocked and that made life easier! Thought it was perfect for what we needed. The only thing I'd point out is that the driveway was very steep- not a huge problem but was a bit slow going getting in and out.

This house is located less than a mile from South Congress Ave, where bars, eateries and shopping abound. 2 Blocks from Stacy park, which features a mile plus of green belt trails that run along a creek, a spring fed swimming pool, a large playground, a toddler pool and tennis courts. Grocery store is a mile away and downtown is only 2 miles away (5 minute drive). Easy access to I-35, the location is absolutely wonderful!!
