"This place was on the end of a residential street. Secluded but near other homes.  The home seemed very roomy for the size. Me and my dog had a comfortable stay and would recommend it to those who enjoy peace and quiet. Extremely clean. Kitchen was equipped with anything you need. Didn’t have any left over panty items so bring your own. No big deal. Fast Wi-Fi. I even had good mobile phone service out there. Far away from San Marcos to think you’re away from it all, but only a short drive into town." - George G
