GREAT TRIP WILL BOOK AGAIN!!!

  • 5 of 5

I had a great trip visiting the San Marcos area, all because we stayed at this house. I stayed here with a group of friends over the weekend and everyone had a blast. This country home had a farm feel to it so dont forget to pack your guitars because if you like the farm feel, fill up the corn cob pipe and give this place a try. (also the AC runs like a champ!)

.

Thanks again for letting us stay at your place

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We took a family trip to get away before our son goes to Marine Corps boot camp. This turned out to be a great trip and place to stay.

The house was fantastic! Very clean, no neighbors around, great grill (really nice custom made), and as someone else said, the air conditioner really works!

Access to the river was easy to get to and a great location..plenty of water and not overcrowded.

This really is a great house with plenty of room and well stocked. We had 4 people and 2 more would have been no problem. We are already planning our next trip there!

we had a great time.

Jennifer, you have a great place to come & enjoy the outdoors.

In the mornings we enjoyed watching all the birds. Saturday, we floated the river & enjoyed people watching - there were alot of people, we had a blast.

Then we cooked out on the grill for dinner. Nice home with everything you need.

Great place to get away & it's close to stores if you forgot anything.

We loved the property location and how peaceful it is. Great location with access to the river with a small drive. Will definitely rent this property again.

Not many kitchen supplies. Found a dead roach in silverware drawer. Plubbing was slow. Drains were clogged. Nice location. But few kitchen improvements could be made

Owner's Response: Just FYI this guest left my house a total disaster. There was a door off the hinges, vomit on the living room floor, pillows and curtains, blood all over one of the beds, it was left dirty, gross and just awful!!! And on top of that they wanted their deposit back and I didn't return it, so I think he maybe unhappy with me! On one more thing he was caught driving through the maize field very fast and reckless through the middle of our property!!! I have plenty of picture of his mess.

Ideal for a family wanting to get away but still be close to the amenities of town.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage! It had everything we needed. The kitchen had plenty of dishes for cooking. There was a DVD player in the living room, so all you need to bring are movies. All the bedrooms had linens for sleeping, and the bathroom was stocked with towels. I especially loved the washer and dryer and my husband loved the grill outside. We ate all of our evening meals outside where there is a nice gravel area below the back porch with a table. When we were ready to go down to the river, we just grabbed our towels and drove the short distance where there was plenty of shade for parking and river access just below. We are a family of 5, so my only wish is that the house allowed for 8 people instead of 6. We would love to be able to bring my parents or n-laws. With two full couches that could sleep 2 teenagers, you could definitely sleep 8 with no problem especially since you spend most of your time outside anyway. But, other than that, we will definitely be back!
