"We absolutely loved this cute & very convenient serene property. The host was beyond amazing & understanding of our overly frustrating & complicated military PCS move that brought my daughter & I with our cats to the property for the week. There was everything we needed, and more. My daughter loved her own loft space & we enjoyed our serene evenings on the porch. An absolutely wonderful just like home, away from home & highly recommended!" - Stephanie J


Location & Surroundings

This cozy home is ideally situated to help you make the most of your stay in Staples. You’ll be walking distance from a park for relaxing strolls with the whole group. The San Marcos River runs past the town, and it’s known for fly fishing, kayaking, birding and tubing. Just 6 miles away, Martindale is home to several tube rental companies for easy-going afternoons drifting down the river.


Spend more time on the water with a trip to Schlitterbahn Waterpark in New Braunfels! The dual park and resort offers 51 attractions over 70 acres, so there’s bound to be fun for the whole family. Come November, the town celebrates its German heritage with the 10-day Wurstfest!


Cheer on the Bobcats of Texas State in San Marcos! The town also features an historic downtown with delicious dining and great shopping. If you’re on the hunt for a good deal, San Marcos Premium Outlets and Tanger Outlets San Marcos are nearby. Refuel with a decadent barbecue meal in Lockhart or Luling!


You’ll be an easy drive away from Austin, home to the University of Texas, great live music and parks. Catch a Formula 1 race just outside of town at the Circuit of the Americas Track! Don’t forget to visit San Antonio for the picturesque River Walk and its historic sites at the Alamo and along Mission Trail before stopping for a cold one at Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling.

"We stayed for multiple months. This is a very clean and quaint tiny house in a small grouping of six houses. It is small, but has everything you need to cook, wash clothes, and work from home if needed. My husband is a travel nurse, and Santa Rosa San Marcos hospital is not far away. It’s perfect for a couple or a couple with small children. The loft is just that, a loft with a low ceiling (I’m 5’2” and I had to walk bent over when up there) but it’s perfect for kids to sleep and play. It was just tall enough for me to sit in a chair up there to work at a computer. The wifi is very good, and there are three TVs with Roku to watch streaming services. Spectrum TV was provided. It has a small washer and dryer and even a BBQ grill in the yard. It is in a very quiet area not far from a river area where we often saw kayakers launching." - Misti H.
