Cool place. Unusual, unique layout. Pictures are accurate. Looks like interior was recently painted with tile floors everywhere. Place was clean and as usable as all the other rental homes I have used. The owner was helpful and responsive. He knew where to go in San Antonio. I had a pleasant stay and would rent this place again.

We found this home at the last minute, and we are glad we did. The home is very convenient, the home is about two miles from the rental car agency at the airport. The host is very nice, and met us and checked us into the home personally. The pictures do not do the home justice, it is very nice. The all tile floors were a nice feature and the furnishings compliment the home very nicely. The hot tub was relaxing and my family enjoyed the on-site barbecue. The above-ground pool was relaxing and fun. We were impressed with the neighborhood, the grocery is only two blocks away and there are many fine restaurants in the area. Jim, the host, was helpful by showing us where to eat based upon our tastes, and he also showed us how to get around on a San Antonio map. Thanks, Jim! Overall I would recommend this vacation rental to a friend without hesitation, and will definitely book from this owner the next time we visit San Antonio. Troy

Owner response: Thanks for your kind review! My full time occupation is operating my five furnished Vacation Rental Homes here in San Antonio. I try very hard to make each and every Guest comfortable and happy about their stay, and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with me in San Antonio! The dome covered above ground pool has turned out to be quite a hit with my Guests, they enjoy endless hours of water basketball using the vertical hoop that I installed at the top of the dome. Since the ball does not leave the dome, the game continues!

My family and I stayed here for Graduation Weekend (Basic Military Training). It was clean and nicely furnished. Everything needed was provided. The photos were accurate and we enjoyed relaxing at the house where everyone in the group could stay together. The property was easy to find and close to everywhere. There was even a nice washer/dryer provided. Jim was attentive and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here.

Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, girls getaway, age 55+, romantic getaway.
Upon our arrival we noticed that the property was not clean. Carpeting in bedrooms was HEAVILY soiled. All interior walls are in need of new paint - many cracks, chips and scuffs. Fixtures in bathrooms were dirty. Tile floors were dirty. Accumulated dirt and dust throughout home. Electrical circuits throughout the home, especially the kitchen were problamatic. Many extension cords used throughout home - limited outlets. Was personally advised by owner that microwave and kitchen range could not be used when clothes dryer was operating. One outlet in kitchen had black electrical tape covering it - precluding use. Linens and towels provided by the owner are well worn and need to be replaced. Sidewalks and patio area concrete surfaces were uneven, cracked and split. Had to contact owner to have home cleaned every week. Quality of cleaning was substandard. Interior areas of home smelled - musty smell under the kitchen sink. Roaches seen in kitchen and dining room areas. Would not recommend this rental property to anyone.

Owner response: August 1, 2013 ...This summer the home has been substantially redecorated including replacement of all carpeting with new ceramic tile so the home is 100 percent tile at this time. All bedrooms have been repainted with vibrant accent colors (see photographs). All linens and bedspreads have been replaced to compliment the paint color schemes. The formerly shared above ground pool is now a private above ground pool just for Trail House. The patio is now very nice with chaise lounges. The bedrooms have expanded electrical outlets, the home is beautiful. The reviewer was not fair about her property description, however we did spend considerable time, effort and money to make recommended changes to the property. I have five vacation rental homes and this is my full time job. I take pride in my housing offerings, and am confident that you will enjoy your stay at the Trail House. It is economical, clean, and available for rent.
My family stayed at this location while attending our Granddaughter's graduation from Lackland Air Force Base. The ride was only about 20 minutes and almost a straight shot to the base. The listing description, photos and amenities were as described by the owner. The owner (Jim) was very helpful. He went beyond his requirements to make us comfortable. I would highly recommend this vacation rental to anyone. Also the property was very clean and very well maintained. Thanks Jim, you made our stay worth the long trip.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Owner Jim Smith moved to San Antonio in 2006 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 (10 years) where he set up a county Special Olympics program which included 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 (8 years) and the Recreational Trails Commission which decided where to spend public transportation funds for recreational trails in Washington, DC (6 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 ineriors were selected for each home by Jim and his sister, Jan, and the result is a fine rental accommodation that is 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, 24 beds, six sleep sofas, six kitchens, three pools and five hot tubs keeps him totally busy all the time along with his helpers.
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Benefits of being a Guest of San Antonio Executive Rental at Trail House are: 1) Owner lives next door and is available to assist you at any time 2) The location is the center of San Antonio for commuting purposes, you can go anyplace in San Antonio in a reasonalble amount of time and distance. 3) The location is two blocks to a grocery, 24/7 pharmacy, liquor store, several restaurants 4) A caterer is located three blocks away, plus numerous restaurants and fast food from two blocks to one mile away 5) One mile south of North Star Mall and North Park Mall and one mile west of Alamo Quarry Market means there are at least four hundred stores located within a mile radius of the property 6) Bus stop to go downtown or other places one block 7) Clean, comfortable accommodation with a hot tub and private swimming pool plus a very relaxing atmosphere where you can enjoy your family while on travel to San Antonio.
