  • Perfect place to slow down


    The proximity to the river was the main reason for choosing this property and it did not disappoint! Great tiny town and friendly small town community

  • Nice but need attention to detail


    No smoke alarms

    No CO detector

    No air in bathrooms

    Mold under sinks

    Bedroom closets full of stuff

    Doors need to be able to open shut easily

    Kitchen drawers mostly broken off track

    Return air vent filthy

    Bathtubs floors need mats slippery

    Walk in shower needs handicap railing

    Care taker walks around and kinda weird

    1/4 bottles of soap and 1 ply tp

    Owners super nice but they need a handyman to fix place up and make more presentable and worth the cost they charge and advertise

    Blown away by the hospitality and cuteness of this property. Just a minute walk to wonderful food, live music, and access to the San Marcos River. We had a wonderful time here, and most certainly will be back.

  • Relaxing weekend


    We absolutely enjoyed our time here. The town was amazing! It provides great food at Martindale River Cafe, live music, and friendly community members. We loved the back porch on this property and private section of the river. The groundskeeper made sure we were safe, and the owners were so nice.

    Don’t skip on this one! It was perfect!

  • Terrible


    Talked to property owner about house not being clean/dead bugs and the smell. Had to go get a hotel. Talked to somebody at VRBO and they said I would be getting a refund.
