Please read this whole description, I am an experienced owner and I cover a lot of different scenarios including how to save a lot of money in air fares and military discounts. So read all this please.
In the event your group has more than 10 persons up to 20 persons or if you just want more space, you may consider renting the Trail House (this house) plus the adjacent Stone House (www.homeaway.com/264687). They are not internally connected but are convenient to go between. This will give you five bathrooms, two kitchens, two washer/dryer units, six bedrooms, plus three sofa beds and two day beds. This will provide you with more space, and can help make your San Antonio Vacation Experience more comfortable. This is specially suitable for 5 to 6 couples. Contact me if this situation applies to you. All of my homes are within 4 blocks of each other so there are many comfortable alternatives to address your space needs or your small group.
This home is available for monthly rentals at $3000.00 per month (no hotel tax is due for stays 30 nights or longer) total plus $60.00 weekly maid service for a total amount due of $3240 until Aug 23 per month and $2740 total per month after August 23. The HomeAway and VRBO pricing does not allow us to accurately quote these flat rates.
Traveler Tip #1: If coming by air to San Antonio, please also price flying to Austin, Texas and going back to Austin when leaving, renting a car in Austin and driving to San Antonio. Many of my Guests who have done this have told me they save an average of $150.00 per person. So if you are traveling as a group of 8 persons you can save about $1200.00 which could be applied to cover a huge amount of the cost of my rental to you for your trip. Built in savings like that is truly a good thing!
Traveler Tip #2: When renting a car, make an early reservation and watch the prices about every ten days, if your price goes down, cancel the first reservation and make a new one. Car and truck rental prices are determined on the futures market, and has nothing to do with the day you reserve. Futures markets change often and so thus do the prices of their cars to you.
Note: If your interested in booking, contact me by email or telephone. I have office hours daily from 8 AM to 10 AM central time, reach me at 210-618-1501 at those hours for the fastest service.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Owner Jim Smith moved to San Antonio in 2004 from Washington, DC where he spent most of his adult career as a Realtor, Home Builder, and later as a Building and Zoning Code Consultant. In the earlier years Jim spent his free time as a Special Olympics County Coordinator in Maryland (7 years) where he set up a county Special Olympics program which almost five hundred Special Olympians spread around 35 schools. Later, he spent his free time as a community activist, being the President or Board or Committee Member of scores of community interest groups including his civic association, and also served on several Washington, DC Mayoral Commissions including the Building Code Advisory Board (5 years) and the Recreational Trails Commission which decided where to spend public transportation funds for recreational trails in Washington, DC (3 years). The fast pace and hypertension of Washington, DC was too much to bear, so Jim transplanted himself to San Antonio, Texas. In San Antonio, Jim has remodeled six properties, including his home and five other rental properties that are fully furnished. The furniture and interiors were selected for each home by Jim and his sister, Jan, and the results are fine rental accommodation that are reasonable in cost. Jim's full time job is making Guests comfortable, and helping them navigate San Antonio to its many attractions and restaurants. This adventure for Jim has been anything but a progression for retirement, having 14 bathrooms, 19 bedrooms, 26 beds, six sleep sofas, six kitchens, four pools and five hot tubs keeps him totally busy 24/7. Jim is a Certified Tourist Ambassador and is extremely knowledgeable about San Antonio and its colorful history In spite of all the hard work, it is indeed a reward to finally settle down in the same city as his lovely sister, Jan, and her husband, David. Jim hopes that all of you who are estranged from your loved ones, living in remote parts, can come together soon and enjoy your loving families!
Why the Owner Chose San Antonio:
The home is near the airport and North Star Mall, just one mile to the 281 communter freeway downtown. The neighborhood is in the demographic center of San Antonio as is the International Airport, so getting around is very fast. Also the homes are less than two blocks from retail and food locations, the commuter skip bus stop is one or two blocks away depending uon which home your staying in, convenient to get downtown on public transportation. To Jim, San Antonio offers magical things that cannot be found quite the same anyplace else, such as the River Walk, the magnificant dining, the attractions such as the Alamo, the cultural events, the happy visitors, and the spontaneous, friendly folk of San Antonio. Even though San Antonio has a few nights of colder weather, Jim was attracted to San Antonio for its HOT weather, where for most of the year you must dress casual to survive, and where excecpt for a dozen or so nights per year does the temperature go below 30 at night.
