Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: We are John and Nancy and are retired and live in the back of the property. The vacation rental home is attached to our home office. It is very private with entrances at opposite ends of the property and you will rarely see us. We are available for emergencies or information, if needed. We have children and grandchildren locally and in Flagstaff, AZ that we like to visit often. We enjoy traveling in our RV and travel in general, and take every opportunity to do so.

Why the Owner Chose San Marcos:
We have lived in San Marcos for many years, and during our travels have found that not many places can beat this beautiful climate. It's 75 degrees most of the year! We are inland with plenty of sun, but also enjoy an afternoon coastal breeze. Delightful!
