River Palm Retreat

River Palm Retreat has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms that comfortably accommodates up to 6 guests. Walk right though your back yard to enjoy the private river access with beach area perfect for younger kids! 

Inside the home, the owners have just purchased brand new furnishings for the entire house! The living area, dining room, and kitchen are all open to each other and provide a great central hang out spot for the whole family. The master suite has a king size bed, walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower. The second and third bedrooms  are each outfitted with a queen size bed and share the hall bathroom. Just off the dining and living area is an enormous screened in porch so you can enjoy the beautiful summer evenings bug-free! There is also an uncovered patio area with a propane grill. The backyard is HUGE! About the length of a football field, the kids will love running around playing tag or catching lightning bugs. There is also a brand new hot tub that was just installed and ready to go!

This home is located right on the San Marcos River, about a ten minute drive from the town of San Marcos, Texas. While enjoying your time here, make sure to visit the San Marcos Outlets Malls for tons of shopping, Aquarina Springs for a glass bottom boat tour, or maybe a relative attending Texas State University. San Marcos is located about thirty-five minutes from downtown Austin and forty-five minutes from San Antonio. River Palm Retreat is in a quiet residential neighborhood. Please respect our neighbors’ need for peace and quiet.

*There is a detached garage apartment, which is occupied by monthly tenant.

"Beautifully decorated with gorgeous view. We'll definitely stay there again! Great fishing just a short walk from the back door! Definitely a do over!" - Irvin Family

"My wife and I stayed with 3 other couples for a weekend getaway. The house exceeded our expectations! The owners have done an amazing job with this property. It is updated and incredibly well maintained. The pictures don't even do it justice. You will not be disappointed if you want a quiet escape! We would definitely stay here again." - Clint P
