About this listing

Turkey Grove, is a delightful getaway with rich surroundings; huge oak and elm trees shade the entire. It's peaceful and quiet, beautifully landscaped.

Please choose another property IF you are a trump supporter, as i find him extremely dis-tasteful, and un-American, in all regards. Thank you in advance, for being gracious and agreeable, in this regard.

This listing is for the smaller and less expensive of the two available bedrooms. Please inquire for the master suite availability.

The space

"Turkey Grove on McCarty Lane" can comfortably accommodate 2 people in one of two bedrooms, the more expensive (@ $225) master suite has a king size bed, large projection TV screen, huge walk in closet-with washer dryer, a private entrance, and a beautiful master bath with walk-in shower (as well as a private outdoor shower), twin sinks and heated floors. Inquire separately for this space.

The guest room listed here, (@ $xxx) features an A queen size bed and smaller closet, Dish TV with movies and Sirius radio, BluRay DVD, and a attached private bath with deep soaking tub / shower.

Both beds are on the firm side, lots of pillows, with very comfortable sleeping, under the ceiling fans.

The house is recently remodeled has many state of the art features; and of course, here in Texas, central air & heat (you'll never hear it run) is a must to stay comfortable.

Guest access

Washer and dryer. Satellite TV (DISH net) with big screen 46" TV, surround sound systems, WIFI (200 mbps), kitchen and cooking privileges, LIGHTED outdoor living areas with music, two sun-tanning chaise Lounges, several seating areas with different views, giant 8' round glass outdoor table for work, dining, enjoyment. Hammock available, but ask for me to set it up if interested. Shady parking.

Interaction with guests

I will be occupying the property (one of the two bedrooms) and greeting my guests; I am friendly and helpful but respect your privacy. My only goal is to make your stay here enjoyable and memorable, and perhaps, make new friends. Just let me know how best to interact with you for a perfect stay.

You will have privacy with private bedroom & bath with free access to huge porches all around the house, to use at your pleasure. There is no 'private' entrance to this guest room, it enters through the main house, one of two ways.

Have a student at the University? Reach the campus in about 10 minutes or less. Off to shop? Tanger & Prime are 5 minutes away. South by Southwest in Austin is 40-50 minutes north; San Antonio is also 40-50 minutes south. Wimberley is 30 minutes away, west. Canyon Lake is 30 minutes away. New Braunfels 20 minutes.

The neighbourhood

You are close to downtown San Marcos & the beautiful San Marcos River (10 minute), which has a wonderful 71-73 degree water temperature year round. Its waters are crystal clear and invite swimming, inner tubing, or kayaking for a most enjoyable day of fun and relaxation..
Yet, at home, you are in a beautiful countryside environment, away from hustle and bustle of traffic and noisy city sounds. You will have 10 acres to explore on this beautiful Turkey Grove Estate. Cows and horses (not mine) and even a rodeo arena are just next door and across the street. Wild turkey come around at times.

Access to the University of Texas at San Marcos (SWT) is very easy from this location and would take about 10 to 15 minutes to drive, or you could bike in about 20 to 25 minutes.

There is easy access to the Austin & San Antonio freeway; each city is about 30 to 40 minutes away. Sightseeing the Texas Hill Country is very easy from this central location, halfway between Austin and San Antonio. This could well be, the peaceful Shangri-La, that you will love to find.

Getting around

Taxi cabs from San Marcos are available, as is a bus ride which is a 20 minute walk from Turkey Grove on McCarty. Car & bike rentals are also available nearby. San Marcos also has an executive airport with private & commercial flights. I can arrange transportation as needed.

Other things to note

HD television is provided in each bedroom. DISH Network satellite TV, HBO and Netflix .
The master bedroom suite will be more expensive and much larger (with private bath) than the single 'GUEST' bedroom with attached private bath. You may choose either option, with appropriate pricing for each. there is a short hallway from the guest room to the guest bath. If you prefer, i can use the master private entrance and leave the house to yourself for the most part.

Please write for details to inquire on this non-smoking property. View the photos to see the value of this offering.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
May not be safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check-in is after 11AM

This is a no smoking environment with outdoor privileges on request. Please bring a baggie (or ask for one) for your spent smokes and immediately 'bag um'--don't leave a pile in the ash tray for wind to blow or unexpected rain to make a nasty mess for me. THANKS !

Currently there are no pets allowed but exceptions will always be considered. There is one Labrador Retriever on the property who is friendly and fun. He is a house dog, but is happy to stay outside too.
If your dog is an incessant yapper, i don't think i could handle that, or a high pitched, ear shattering yap, like you hear / see on the dog whisperer.. how do people stand that?

Guests are expected to be neat (and somewhat tidy) and take care of their immediate surroundings, but most importantly: feel comfortable and enjoy their time here and in the Texas Hill Country.

Trump supporters are NOT welcome, SORRY. no no no.
I love the USA too much for that guy to make it part of his corporate identity, what a horror for all of us to endure.
