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 San Marcos

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I travel about 20 weekends a year, stay at many resorts and never have I been struck the way I was.

The place is beautiful inside, totally breathe taken when I first walked in. The location is great, walking distance from the river, parks, restaurants and shops. The 2 bedrooms are clean and private. The kitchen and dining area has room for all of us to hang out without having to climb around each other; space is not an issue. I will refer my family, friend and clients to check it out.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

I had a very nice stay at Peggy's apartment this past weekend. It's nicely decorated with upgraded amenities throughout. The location is perfect, a couple blocks from the square. The rental instructions were great. I will rent again when back in San Marcos.

Cutest place!

  • 5 of 5

We had the greatest weekend in San Marcos for the 4th of July. This apartment is so cute and perfect for a weekend in San Marcos. The place was very well decorated and the beds were so comfy!! You can literally walk to the square, and it's so close to everything! The host told us everything up front, and I never really had any questions. Even left us some goodies when we first came in! Loved it and will definitely stay again😊

Got back up to San Marcos for some downtime; SWTSU alumni '93...

This place is great! Perfect simple set-up; exceptionally clean- but the best part is the LOCATION. You are literally within walking distance to the San Marcos river, Texas State University and the ultra-cool downtown square with so many great little restaurants. Right across the street (near Colloquium Bookstore) there is an awesome coffee shop; be sure to hit that spot... I have already booked a second trip up; This is a great jumping off point for many adventures in the San Marcos area- But you can also just park/never drive and do tons in walking distance!

Great place to stay for Texas State parents!

  • 5 of 5

Great place for our family to stay while celebrating our son's graduation from Texas State University! As Peggy said, we were able to walk to the graduation ceremony and not worry about parking or travel time. We could walk to the river for tubing, visit the nightlife nearby and grab a roll at Gil's on Sunday morning. The apartment was comfortable, clean and as inviting as shown in the pictures. We'll be back as we have a daughter who will be starting at Texas State in 2017. Go Bobcats!!

Convenient & Comfotable

  • 4 of 5

You can't beat the location. It is a short walk to shops and restaurants. However, there is a large apartment construction site within feet of the small parking lot. We arrived Thursday afternoon to the loud construction noise. The crews did shut it down around 5 and then the noise started again around 7:00 am Friday morning. I'm am an early riser so it did not bother me and the others slept through it.

The apartment is decorated nice and the furnishing are up to date and comfortable. There were four women and only 4 bath towels. Eight towels would be perfect for 3 days.

Some of the utensils in the drawer appeared dirty. There are college renters in this building. They were courteous.

Overall, we were satisfied.
