About Flint Cooper

Flint Cooper and Debbie Pepper are your hosts for The San Marcos Pool House! We live in a separate main house on the property. When I bought the property 4 years ago the pool house had been very neglected and there was no landscaping in the yard. It took us several years to update and modernize the Pool House and put in landscaping, we did all the work ourselves on the weekends.

A favorite hobby we have in the summer is kayaking. Rio Vista Park on the San Marcos river is only a 10 drive. We launch from there and paddle upstream a mile to Sewell Park, then swim in the crystal clear 72 degree water.

In the winter we enjoy hiking in the 700 acre Purgatory Creek Natural Area, a 5 minute drive. Our favorite hike starts at the trail head on Ranch Road 12 and take the trail 2 miles back to spectacular views from the cliff above the large cave, then hike down to the cave were Indians used to live.

For evening entertainment we go to town square to eat and drink at the local establishments.

There is a lot to do here in San Marcos: the San Marcos River, The Outlet Malls, Texas State University and so much more. But many of our guests just enjoying hanging out by the pool and relaxing.

When you stay with us you have exclusive use of the pool, the deep end is 11’ deep! You may see us coming and going, watering and general chores – but we respect your privacy and leave you alone.

We hope you come stay at The Pool House!

Flint Cooper purchased this studio in 2014

Why Flint Cooper chose San Marcos

Secluded but 10 minutes to San Marcos Town Square, Texas State, CTMC, San Marcos River and Outlet Malls. Or just relax and enjoy the deep pool!

What makes this studio unique

Sit outside by the pool at night and watch the lightning bugs.

Weekend Stay

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a softball tournament with our daughter. The pool house was an excellent place to stay and Flint was very accommodating. We loved all of the Texas references in the house and enjoyed reading his Texas Almanac. We plan on coming back once it warms up so we can enjoy the pool and patio area.
