Congratulations. You have just discovered an oasis smack dab in the middle of Texas, nestled right along the pristine San Marcos River. Ancient artesian springs send millions of gallons of crystal clear Edwards Aquifer water right out of the ground just ten miles upstream in San Marcos, Texas. The water temperature is about 72º year round.
As soon as you arrive, the pace begins to slows down, it's quiet, peaceful, and secure. Grab a rocking chair on the screened porch and put your feet up on the rail...Enjoy a cold drink..Turn that mobile phone off and RELAX. You have reached the perfect holiday destination.
This vacation paradise is one mile away from Martindale, Texas. A quick 10 minute drive will take you to San Marcos or the Tanger Outlet / Premium Outlet Malls, 30 minutes to New Braunfels and Schlitterbahn, 35 minutes to the the Austin airport, 50 minutes to San Antonio and Austin, and one hour to Fredericksburg and the Texas Hill Country.
In 2017, the owners remodeled the home 100% inside and out; the property features all new furniture, premium bedding, stainless appliances, high quality cookware and utensils, ceiling fans in every room, new air conditioning, new plumbing fixtures...Everything is in perfect working order. If you enjoy 100% cotton, crisp, and primo quality linens, you will sleep very well here. Additionally, Sound+Sleep sound machines are provided in each bedroom. If you need anything, the owners live very close by and will respond immediately. Because the owners do all the cleaning and landscaping, the property is always kept in a state of perfection.
If you need to stay in touch with the outside world, we have robust Wi-Fi which can deliver up to 70 Mbps.
Bring your own kayaks or rent them at Spencer's Canoes, which is only a half mile away. The kid-friendly kayak trip from our oasis to Staples, Texas takes about three hours. You can also float the crystal clear San Marcos River in San Marcos (Lion's Club) or begin your river quest in Martindale and float for about an hour back to the property. If you are interested in fishing, there are several local fishing guides that specialize in fly fishing or you can walk down to the river, right behind the house, and do very well with a fly rig or conventional gear.
The property is located in the quiet and family friendly "Falls at Martindale" subdivision. Take a morning walk or bike ride on the 1-1/2 mile long road which has no through traffic. The neighbors are friendly and we all look out for each other; it would be difficult to find a more serene and safe vacation environment.
Generally, we restrict the capacity to a maximum of six people (keeping' it serene and peaceful). However, if there are eight in your group, the garage loft can be rented for additional fees. Also, if you would like some extra room for your group of 6 or less and need to rent the garage loft, please let OwnerDirect know and they can adjust the totals manually for you.
NOTE - If you are looking for the perfect place to party with your college friends, rave at Float Fest, dominate at beer pong, whoop and holler...Well, there are other vacation rentals that will be better suited for your needs. This property caters to families, mature behavior, and wholesome fun.
