Property is located within 5 minutes of the University and downtown area where you will find great eateries and shops to explore. The Outlet Mall is 10 minutes away and great little quaint towns like Gruene and Wimberley are within 20-30 minutes with additional fun shops and great food. Stay a few days and make a day trip to San Antonio or Austin- but once you stay here on the property you may not want to leave and can contact many good restaurants locally for delivery to enjoy by the river.

 

Owner info

About the owner: I am a native Texan, and have lived in Latin America for many years and speak fluent Spanish. I enjoy gardening, nature, traveling, reading, music and dancing.

Why the Owner Chose San Marcos:
San Marcos is a great location with Austin and San Antonio a short distance away. But why go anywhere else when your home is located within a short distance of all the amenities you would need -especially when you have the river in your backyard! I have owned this great property for a while and decided to open it up for guests to enjoy . My guest room turned out to be fabulous, which I loved decorating with some new furnishings that complement my other unique furniture from Latin America.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I am so fortunate to look out my window or better yet, set at the rivers edge and take in the beautiful scenery. My deck was a great addition and has been much enjoyed.
