  • A beautiful and relaxing spot on the San Marcos River!

    "The apartment was as pictured including a large open studio space with a small kitchenette and comfortable, clean bathroom. When you get there, look up. If you appreciate architecture and/or woodworking at all, you'll be stunned. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children (12 and 7 years) and there was adequate space for the two twin inflatable beds we brought. Regarding the king bed, we've stayed in several vacation home rentals which have not had as comfortable a bed, but this has been an exception. Thank goodness, because after two full days of being in the water, sun, and having lots of fun...we were tired! We lived in San Marcos for many years and can say without a doubt that Jerry and Barbara have a gem of a home on a surprisingly secluded part of a very busy river. It is amazing that they are sharing it, because I can't imagine doing the same. The realities of living with a kitchenette, four people, and a narrow spiral staircase are the ONLY things to really plan out when booking your stay. We ate out once (Cafe on the Square is an old haunt with good breakfasts) and ordered Valentino's Pizza once (it's always been the BEST pizza in town and delivers)...the rest we cooked on the downstairs house grill and felt like we lived on the river, it was wonderful! The stairs were a bit scary to traverse with a full cooler and probably the only thing I would change in the property at all. They make a beautiful trellis for the blooming wine colored wisteria, though! Be mindful that they maintain a natural (but well kept) landscape. Expect to see many birds, waterfowl, bugs (outside, of course), and the orange cat, Henry. Admirable and infinitely curious, Barbara and Jerry enjoy observing their environment. Jerry and Barbara are also two of the kindest people we've met. They opened their vast yard and waterfront deck to us and our visiting friends, whom only visited for the afternoons. (We even got to use the kayaks!) Everyone had a memorable time and we plan on returning again as soon as possible! We certainly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing for a lovely time in a beautiful part of the San Marcos River. There are so many great things to say about this apartment and the Texas hospitality we were given, but you're just going to have to find out for yourself. Enjoy! We can recommend this property for people who love being outdoors (fishing, tubing, kayaking), photography, picnicking, or just being lazy and enjoying the waterfront."

    "We had a group of 5 adults and had a blast. The cabin is very accommodating and we had everything we needed to enjoy our weekend! We slept great and had plenty of room. The grounds are beautiful and we will be back again!!"

  • Great location, Comfortable Stay

    "This location is great! The view of the river is even better than the pics show. We didn't have time to use any of the water "toys", but will definitely try to do so next time we return. Sylvia has made this room and bathroom a very comfortable oasis for her guests. She supplies cold water in the mini fridge, along with ice trays in the freezer. There's a great coffee maker, pair of coffee cups, pairs of bowls, plates, and silverware, and even two beach towels. The bed is very comfortable. As to the train that goes by often, we barely heard it while in the room. Sylvia does supply a noise maker for those who might still be bothered by the train. Sylvia is so nice and it was fun to hear her stories, a very lovely lady! She gives you a tour of the back yard and two decks on the water, but then gives you all the privacy you want. She made herself available for our stay, but we didn't need anything because everything was already supplied! We walked from the house to the Bobcat Stadium for the Texas State vs UofH football game. Super easy walk! We also walked from the house to Downtown. If walking to Downtown on Hopkins St, note that there is no sidewalk on the south side of Hopkins, but there is on the north side. It's not easy to cross over to the north side of Hopkins,'s a very busy street. We'll definitely be returning to Sylvia's oasis in the heart of San Marcos!"
