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.

Great location, great owners.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second winter in Staples. Great location between Austin and San Antonio, close to San Marcos where you’ll find everything you need. Property very clean and well stocked. Anything you need, just ask. You’ll be well taken care of. Great folks to rent from. We’ll be back again next year!!

Peaceful and nice

  • 5 of 5

We are very grateful, the owner let us check in early. My grandbaby of 5 months was exhausted from the carseat. The tiny house was spacious with 5 adults and a baby. Very nice, peaceful, and near the San Marcos outlets, New Braunfels, and different attractions. Thanks for everything. Hopefully we can go back! Stay blessed.

I can’t really add anymore than what has already been said. It was perfect, clean and had so many thoughtful touches we couldn’t have asked for anything else!
