Nightly $275.00 - $325.00
We have approximately one acre along the San Marcos River; the home is maintained like an aircraft. The owners, John and Cynthia live next door and can assist with any needs that you might have. The house can accommodate 6 and there is an elevated garage apartment that can accommodate 2 additional guests for additional fees.

If you enjoy canoeing or kayaking, this is one of the best kept secrets in Texas. The river trip from the house to the tiny town of Staples, Texas takes about 3-4 hours; an easy paddle for anyone. The water comes out of the ground in San Marcos, about 10 miles up river. The water is clean, usually clear, and stays 68-72 degrees year around.

The landscape is essentially a Texas botanical garden; there are Sabal Texana palms, large bamboo groves, pecan and cypress trees, and soft Bermuda grass lawns. We plant perennial ryegrass in the lawn areas so that during the winter, there is a lush green landscape enjoy.

Our neighbors love living here and most have been here for 20 years or more; none of us ever want to move. We hope you will be able to understand that this is not just another vacation rental; it is one of the most peaceful and serene places in Texas.

Additional Boating Information:

If you have kayaks or canoes, these are the primary watercraft that are suitable on the river. No motors. There is a canoe / kayak outfitter about 1/2 mile up river that can supply everything that you might need.

NOTE - If you are looking for a place to inner tube, get wasted, and act like a hooligan, there are other rentals that are probably more suited to your needs.

Allowed Pets
  • Dogs
Additional Pet Information:

We are animal lovers. Generally, we do not allow pets; it's all about avoiding pet damage. All of the neighbors have (friendly) dogs that are free roaming so there is a surplus of "dog energy". If you are seeking a long term rental and have a VERY SMALL, quiet, friendly, and calm dog, we would consider it.

Other The house sleeps six and that is the base price for the rental. There is an elevated garage apartment (Riverview Loft) that can sleep two additional guests for additional rental fees.
The 1/2 acre back yard slopes down to the San Marcos River. There is a wall of bamboo on the east property line and loquats on the west property line for privacy. There are pecan trees in the back yard, a commercial grade swing set, and a nice open area for hose shoes, croquet, lounging.
No Smoking
