About Peggy Jones

I am the owner and property manager. I am a central Texas native. I have been in property management for over 20 years developing and managing various types of rental property. I attended Texas State University earning a BAAS with emphasis in Real Estate and a MAG in Land Management.

Peggy Jones purchased this Apartment in 2012

Why Peggy Jones chose Downtown Association

San Marcos is a wonderful place to live and visit. Whether you are coming for a extended business travel, a visiting professor, a special event, tubing the rivers, or shopping at the outlet mall, this is a perfect choice for extended stay. This is a 5000 sf building constructed in 1967 and historically occupied with 3 two bedroom apartments upstairs and commercial space downstairs. I purchased the property in 2012, remodeling the upstairs and dividing the downstairs into three units, one of which is my office, as part of a complete renovation. It is less than a city block to the river and the outdoor stage where Sights and Sounds is held each year. There is only one block between the apartment and the university campus. It is an easy stroll to Strahan Coliseum, the Performing Arts Theater, downtown square, grocery, and some of the best restaurants San Marcos has to offer.

What makes this Apartment unique

This apartment is tastefully furnished with a German Castle motif. It is an elegant alternative for a professional visiting the area on an extended stay.

                                                      Leslie R.Houston, TX

                                                      The apartment is cute and perfectly located. Check in was great and easy with parking right in front of apartment door. We were in town for Bob Cat day with my daughter and enjoyed that we could walk to all little shops, bars, and restaurants. I would have given it 5 stars except I felt the floors could have been cleaned a little better. Other than that we thought it was perfect and would definitely book here again

                                                      Great Location with upgraded furnishings

                                                      Jerry F.

                                                      Loved the location which is walking distance to the historic downtown district of San Marcos. The furnishings and amenities were outstanding!

                                                      Buyer Beware

                                                      What an absolute disappointment. I don't even know where to start. This was an absolute nightmare and sadly, just got worse and worse. The saddest part was the owners flippant and condescending attitude. Basically treating us as a horrible inconvenience to her. I would avoid this place like the plague. To summarize;

                                                      I was traveling with my husband and elderly 86 year old mother and to just get up and move wasn’t a viable option. I just kept hoping it would get better but it only got worse.

                                                      I’m very disappointed as this cast a shadow on what should have been a celebratory time of my daughters college graduation. These are some items (I can provide photos if you like) that are just not acceptable;

                                                      No heat upon arrival (We waited 3 hours for you to get back to us)

                                                      Bathroom sink clogged upon arrival

                                                      Garbage and cigarette buts scattered in front of door upon arrival

                                                      Interrupted toilet use for 3 of our 4 days

                                                      Raw sewage coming up shower drain

                                                      Raw sewage coming into living room

                                                      Raw sewage soaking my camera bag

                                                      Both toilet and kitchen sink gurgling and emitting a foul sewage smell

                                                      Peeling paint in multiple places on dining room window, peels 6 inches long in places

                                                      Mildew on bottom of window opening

                                                      Burnt out lightbulbs

                                                      Broken wall clock

                                                      Food residue on utensils

                                                      Filthy, stained baking pan

                                                      Lack of silverware, for instance only 3 knives

                                                      Dirty kitchen towels

                                                      Kitchen drawers a mess

                                                      Garbage can with awful, sticky residue on bottom, not clean at all

                                                      Construction debris (pile of sawdust) not cleaned up in parking lot in front of door

                                                      Overflowing garbage cans outside the entire time we were there

                                                      Overturned chairs at eating area in front of building the entire stay

                                                      Debris thrown on railing and piled up at end of sidewalk

                                                      Basically the majority of these things simply say ........ we don’t care about you or your stay. If they did, they would have checked the unit over and rectified them. Owners office is right next store. Sadly, they did not.

                                                      My husband and I are property managers and we would never allow guests to enter a unit in the condition we found ours.

                                                      I also vehemently reject owners text to me questioning me about my mother possibly flushing body wipes down the toilet and then suggesting I tell her not to do that. That was horribly insulting and degrading. We are customers and guests and should be treated as such.

                                                      All in all a horrible stay and absolutely dreadful experience

                                                      House was in a great location could’ve used a few more kitchen amenities

                                                      Brian & Connie S.

                                                      We had a great time walking distance to everything downtown our son lives just outside of San Marcos. We were trying to put together a full Thanksgiving dinner because my sons girlfriend was in the hospital but they were lacking kitchen amenities utensils. I need Peggy to give me a call we left A spatula in the kitchen. 541-410-8410 Connie thank you

                                                      Great Location

                                                      Kiley W.

                                                      This is my second time staying here with my friends and it never disappoints. The location is better than any hotel in town. We love being able to walk to all the restaurants and bars we want to go to. We will definitely stay here again.

                                                      Great as always
