About Carol Wester

This property is in downtown Staples. The city doesn't have any street lights or stores. Be prepared to relax and enjoy all the benefits of Central Texas, without the crowds. The birds, stars and sunrises are amazing. You can canoe from Martindale to Staples. The place is ideal for cyclist and nature lovers.

It was just what we wanted in a place for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The house was just enough room for all of us. The amenities for the house was more that we expected. We really needed to bring nothing but clothes with us. I would definitely go back.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept house, clean, well stocked and ready for us. We had 6 people and a baby...it was tight but we all had a great time. We loved that if felt like a getaway - 25 mins out of Gruene. Would go again!
