Hidden gem in San Marcos!

  • 5 of 5

This back cottage is the perfect spot to call

" base" when visiting San Marcos! Close to the Square and all of the restaurants and bars! We walked to and from the square every night and felt safe! I would highly recommend this spot for your next visit to San Marcos! The cottage was private, clean, and the bed was very comfortable!

Modern meets history

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved the two nights stay at this property. It really was exactly as I thought it would be ... only better! Historic main home with very private room detached with a shared back yard from the main house. It really seems like you are at home there. I could hear the birds in the morning and there are beautiful landscape and trees. The owners are very hospitable and welcoming. It makes me smile when I think about staying there again. It was a blessing!

Soulfull mornings

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great, the detached room located in the historical district of the city was perfect. It felt safe, so safe, we were able to keep windows open the entire stay. The songs provided by the birds who came to the feeders was a perfect way to wake up . The room was beautiful and provided everything we needed, will definitely return when the opportunity arises.

Always a great stay at the little blue bungalow!!

  • 5 of 5

Was lucky to get a last minute reservation at Jim and Jean's little blue bungalow. Such a great location in the best neighborhood in San Marcos. A nice morning walk to Tantra for coffee or a short drive to Purgatory Creek Park for a beautiful hill country hike. The bungalow is quiet and private, perfect for a couple getting away for the weekend. We've stayed there several times and always loved it. Clean, comfortable and cozy and the price is right!
