About Owner / Property Manager

I am the owner and the property manager. I have been in the rental property and real estate business for over 25 years. I own several properties, but I have to say this is my favorite. I have lived in Central Texas for over 30 years.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Downtown

I am passionate about historical buildings, this building was built in 1885. I love how downtown areas are being renovated across the country. This building was renovated in 2005 when I first saw it. Several years later I was given the opportunity to purchase the property. San Marcos, one of the fastest growing cities in the Nation, is a great city to be part of. I have family that attended Texas State, and I am glad to be part of this community.

What makes this apartment unique

Love the loft style, the exposed brick, and the high ceilings of this unit. I like to see the views of San Marcos high above the City. Also like that I can simply walk downstairs and have some great food, and watch a few sports events, or just take a casual walk around the square.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was perfect for what we rented this for. Close proximity to downtown San Marcos eating locations, and shopping, we had a great time!

We also enjoyed the food at Sean Patrick's. We will be back!

San Marcos is a charming town within driving distance to Austin. Near Lockhart which has some great bbq joints. Here for F1 racing at COTA and was only 30 mins to track. Accommodation was comfortable and clean. Located above bar and busy street so expect some noise- tolerable. Very easy to access unit. Owner very responsive and his recommendations regarding food was spot on....Root Cellar is excellent choice for breakfast.

With so many things to attract you to San Marcos, it can be hard to choose what to do first. You can take to the skies? Skydive San Marcos will give you the thrill of a lifetime with a tandem skydive experience. Or you can always enjoy a hot air balloon or helicopter ride to see the sights.

More interested in what's happening beneath the surface? Marvel at underwater marine life and watch hundreds of springs bubble up to form the headwaters of the San Marcos River from a glass bottom boat at Aquarena Center. Want a more personal experience? Glass bottom kayak tours are also available on Spring Lake. Feel like going a little deeper? Wonder World Park is the nation's only true example of an earthquake formed cave that is open to the public.

Like to heat things up a bit? Wimberley Glassworks has daily demonstrations turning bits of silica and sand into amazing works of art glass with a little air and a lot of fire. Of course, Texas State has many activities to see as well, whether academically or sports related!
