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.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

This tiny home was perfect! Well enough space for 4 adults and 2 dogs. Carol was also SUPER helpful prior to our arrival and easy to communicate with. The beds were so comfortable, the house was nicely stocked, cleaned and organized; she even included doggy care packages which was really sweet. We loved everything about this home and hope to stay here again soon!

Adorable house, great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

The house is as cute as it looks in the pictures! It was also stocked with towels, travel toiletries, coffee, tea, bottled water, dishes, pots and pans, and an abundance of board games. You get that nice "out in the country" feel, but San Marcos is only ~20 minutes away. We will definitely be back!
