About this listing

The "Treehouse" is located on a quiet tree lined street and is easy walking distance to "Texas State" or downtown. Has steps to access the upstairs and is located on the back side of the house, so if steps are an issue for you please do not book this property. It is a perfect spot for a visiting professor, travel nurse or other professional seeking a temporary stay away from the fray of the University or downtown.

The space

The "Tree House" is an upstairs apartment, located above the "The La Casa de Paz", which is located on a tree lined street, walking distance to downtown San Marcos and Texas State. The entrance to the property is at the back of the house where you can enjoy meals, coffee or a glass of wine on the outside deck which is nestled in a "bamboo forest". The bedroom features a queen size bed and you may awaken to see birds, opossum or a curious cat outside your windows on the many oak tree branches that surround the apartment. The kitchen has everything you need to stay a day or a month! Full tub/shower. Note there is not a washer or dryer but a laundry very close as well as a grocery store. There is a WiFi signal from my apartment below so I do not have a dedicated router for this apartment nor cable TV. TV has Netflix/amazon type access. If full cable TV and a dedicated router are things you must have than please consider booking "La Casa", my downstairs apartment.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire upstairs and back yard of the house. Please respect the privacy of those staying downstairs by keeping noise levels down and pets secured.

Interaction with guests

I'm always available by text or email. I will not be meeting you however and you will have a code to get in/out as you please.

Other things to note

Please park to the left hand side of the parking area upon arrival.

The place was nice, quiet and quaint. No issues except for some roaches that found their way inside. Otherwise it was pretty nice.

This was another great trip to one of Susan's properties. We've stayed at both The Treehouse upstairs and Casa de Paz downstairs. Quiet, cozy and convenient. Great getaway location for a week of swimming in the river and enjoying the hill country.

Susan's Treehouse was the perfect place for our little getaway from Austin. We were able to easily walk to the Square, coffee shops and restaurants. A short drive (or longer walk) to the river as well! The bed was super comfy too! Next time we come to San Marcos, we'd love to stay here again!

Susan's place was perfect for our stay in San Marcos. Tucked away on a quiet street but within walking distance to everything in downtown, the Treehouse is located perfectly. Jo's Coffee a block away makes it even better. The Apartment lives up to the description on the listing. Well stocked kitchen for those on longer stays like us, good wifi and working air conditioners and a very comfortable bed. Communicating with Susan was easy and fast. Will definiley stay again. Thanks Susan!

Great location - walking distance to downtown San Marcos ("The Square"). I have been coming here to relax and getaway from roommates. The river is not too far, and it is a good place to swim and tube down the San Marcos river.

When I'm not working as a nurse I'm helping renovate properties with my husband, which lends to one of my favorite sayings "Nothing is just costs more".
