Your friends and family can spread out in over 1900 interior square feet plus an expansive 10 x 42 covered veranda with outdoor dining. This comfortable space invokes a feeling of being in a quaint cottage. Simply furnished with an array of finds and simple antiques, our goal was to create an interesting, clean and comfortable spot for your stay in San Antonio. Sit back, relax and kick your feet up on the coffee table.

The entire space overlooks the lush yard with pool and spa. Feel free to treat yourself and family to backyard Texas BBQ and beat the heat in the pool. The pool is seasonal; however the hot tub is available year around.

Our unique duplex is large in scale and was designed by George Rodney Willis, a lead draftsman for Frank Lloyd Wright at the turn of 20th Century. Later in his career Mr. Willis designed many fine homes and significant buildings here in San Antonio. Comprising of two suites, we live in Suite 2, which is the upstairs residence.

We are located just off of Broadway in the Museum district of Midtown. We're in wonderful small neighborhood rich in history and interesting architecture of the early 20th century. Surrounded by the historic Fort Sam Houston you can enjoy views of the Victorian era officer’s homes and a walk around the block you’ll see horses grazing in pasture. It really is an amazing view, to be only 1 mile from downtown.

3 blocks away you’ll find Brackenridge Park and Golf Course. Walking paths lead you to North through Brackenridge Park, The San Antonio Zoo and more. A few blocks South and you’ll find The Pearl, a culinary hub and select shops. Saturday mornings at the Pearl offers a fun and trendy Farmer’s Market as well.

While just over a mile to the infamous Alamo, enjoy a walk around the block at see horses grazing in pasture on Fort Sam's park like grounds. We're in wonderful small neighborhood rich in history and interesting architecture of the early 20th century. We feel we have established an urban oasis in the city. This great central location just off Broadway is about two miles north of the Alamo. We overlook Fort Sam's historic officer quarters and San Antonio skyline.

                        My husband and I spent a month in San Antonio, staying the entire time in this beautiful house. The street was lovely, quiet and safe. Adjacent to Fort Sam Houston, we loved hearing the bugle everyday at 5:30 pm. We cannot think of a better location. It is blocks from Broadway and less than a mile to the Pearl Brewery, at the north end of the Riverwalk. We are golfers, so having Brackenridge golf course and park (including the zoo) only three blocks away was wonderful. The restaurants nearby are plentiful and delicious. The easy access to US 281 made it easy to visit our daughter and her family who live northwest of where we were. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. I cooked a lot. We loved our breakfasts in the sunny breakfast nook overlooking the pool. One night we had 14 over for dinner (including 6 children). The covered outdoor eating space easily accommodated us. Brent was so gracious, getting the pool ready for use a bit earlier in the season than he normally would have. The bed was very comfortable as was the furniture. Care was taken to keep this older home up to date and clean. Brent was helpful and full of knowledge. We hope to return again.

                        A little slice of Heaven! Our son graduated from USAF and this was the most amazing place to stay for a family week of making memories. The home is everything you read and more! Fresh flowers, soft linens, comfy beds, and snacks awaited our arrival. The neighborhood is so quiet and the view of Fort Sam Houston adds just the right touch, yet you are minutes from the Riverwalk. The owners met every request we had and then some. The backyard is a hidden gem of privacy, quiet relaxation, swimming, and outdoor grilling. We will be back! Our only regret, we didn't get Brent in our family picture with our new Airman!

                        This was a great place to stay for the four of us, two couples traveling together. Brent, the owner, is so friendly & welcoming, plus he provided so many extra treats for us, which were very much appreciated & such a nice surprise. The duplex is extremely spacious, clean, & comfortable. If we ever return to San Antonio, we would definitely rent this place again.

                        Our stay was about as perfect as could be expected! The owners were gracious with a wonderful welcome basket of goodies and flowers. The beds, pillows, and linens were comfy and fresh which was great since our three day weekend was filled with sight-seeing and eating our way through San Antonio! The local brochures, magazines and maps within the unit provided valuable information to help us plan our adventures. Our only request during our stay was immediately taken care of. This home is in great shape considering its age and the modern kitchen and bathrooms were a nice touch for the ladies in our family! The location of this home was very convenient to The Pearl, downtown San Antonio, the Hemisfair Park, and I-35. The suggestions for tours and restaurants from the owner were quite helpful.

                        This house was everything we could have asked for and more! We had 5 overnight (6 during the rest of the day while my son was there) occupants during this trip and were completely comfortable. Brent was very accommodating, welcoming and friendly! There were plenty of toiletries, towels/linens and kitchen supplies as well! Fresh flowers on the table and delicious snacks were waiting for us upon arrival! Beautiful back porch and pool area, very inviting. House was very clean and was exactly as pictured. The house offered a small washer and dryer as well, which we made use of. It's in a very quite area, easily accessible and close to everything or place we wanted to be! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again if ever in the area! Highly recommended! Thank you for a wonderful stay....you guys were awesome!

                        My mother and I stayed in San Antonio for four days while working at the convention center. The duplex was wonderful. It was immaculate. The owners were thoughtful and helpful. The apartment exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this rental. The beds were incredibly comfortable. We had coffee on the back porch over looking the pool every morning. The pool, landscaping, and decorations were beautiful. The location is great. We were five minutes to downtown and the river walk. It was a ten minute drive to the airport. Very close the Pearl, a neighborhood that has fabulous restaurants. I would recommend this rental to anyone traveling to San Antonio. This will be the only place I stay in San Antonio.

                        I have to say that this property was the BEST we have ever stayed in. When we arrived there was a Welcome Basket filled with fresh fruit, Starbuck's coffee, and even chips and dip!!!!! The house was immaculate and the rooms were spacious and soooooo comfortable. The hosts were so friendly and made us feel right at home. I have already raved and recommended this home away from home to friends and family.

                        This house/location is exactly as described by the owner! We wouldn't hesitate to stay here on a return trip to San Antonio! If anyone is looking for a place to stay for a Lackland Graduation Weekend this is the place! We stayed here during our son's graduation weekend. Brent was so helpful as to which route to take to get to Lackland and not get caught in traffic. Located on a beautiful tree lined street with ample parking. Clean and well maintained property! Brent was a great resource for suggesting restaurants, helping us find shopping areas, and a local Walgreens with a 24 hour pharmacy (THANKS BRENT!). Fresh flowers were on the dining room table as well as fresh fruit, snacks and coffee when we arrived! It was so nice to have the owners of the property on site to answer any questions and they don't hesitate to honor requests (such as leaving the pool lights on overnight to allow for a midnight swim). We use VRBO often but have never found a place that lives up to the owner/property manager description until now! We have already recommended this location to several friends and family in the event they travel to San Antonio. Thanks guys, we so enjoyed our stay with you!

                        Owner response: Thank you very much for such a nice review! It was a pleasure and an honor to host you and your family! I'm so happy you enjoyed our place! As an Air Force Vet myself, I really enjoy hosting military families. We hope to see you again on a return trip to the Alamo City! Thank you and much appreciation! Brent Knapp
