                      Lounging by the pool before exploring the tree fort 05/05/2010

                      VRBO Bear stayed here:


                      While planning my trip to San Antonio, Texas, I anticipated a terrific vacation and knew the property was going to be great from the first day I corresponded with owners Eric and Alice. They were always quick to respond, helpful, informative and full of answers and suggestions!

                      My expectations were exceeded as I caught my first glimpse of the large stucco house. Eric was there to meet me and we hit it off immediately! Before entering the house, I explored the backyard with the lush vegetation, stately pecan trees, and the heated pool. Then I spied the tree fort positioned high in one of the large trees! Climbing the ladder to the fort, I had a great view of the San Antonio River running along the rear of the property. Beary, beary pretty!

                      Upon entering the house I oo'd and ah'd as I inspected the eclectic art collection, the interesting group of art deco furniture, the centrally-positioned circular gas fire pit, and the contemporary surfaces -- lots of high-end amenities in a modern and inviting setting. I brought a few friends with me, so we had our choice of three beautiful bedrooms inside the main house (only one word for the master bedroom suite: WOW!). One couple chose the garage apartment with its king-size bed, private bath and efficiency kitchen. No one minded cooking in the incredible kitchen -- very open and spacious with a gorgeous view of the pool and grounds. The garage TV room was an amazing retreat where we watched movies in a cozy and comfortable setting.

                      Though we definitely had fun at the famous San Antonio River Walk, the Alamo, the San Juan Mission and lots of wonderful restaurants, it was always a special treat to come back to this beautiful VRBO property where we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

                        This is a beautiful property which we enjoyed for a month! Tucked away in a quiet little corner, you're 15 minutes away from downtown and a less than an hour away from any of the major theme parks. The main house has a very modern flair and great art work throughout the rooms. Appliances are well maintained and like new! We mostly did a lot of hiking and other outdoor activities, as well as biked the river walk/trail and visited the Mission Trail (the San Jose mission is a 15 minute walk away!). After being out for most of the day, it was a pleasure to get back to the house and take a dip in the pool and BBQ! On the few days when we felt lazy, we'd set up in the game room and watch movies and play table tennis. We had an awesome 4th of July here! The back yard is large enough to camp out, if you want, and the tree fort is a kid's dream -come-true. We had a few lunches up there among the gently rustling branches of the majestic pecan tree. Oh, and speaking of pecan trees, the pool is shaded by its own gigantic pecan tree, so you can soak in the pool the whole day and not worry about sunburn! There's a guest room (I referred to it as the pool house, it has its own kitchenette with a stove, fridge, microwave, and its own bathroom) attached to the carport/garage that was great for my parents, who visited us on the weekends. The property owners and neighbors were friendly and helpful. If you need anything during your stay they are more than happy to help you! We'll make sure and try to stay here again whenever we get the chance!

                        My family rented the house for a week away in San Antonio and could not have been more delighted with the property. The yard is large and inviting and fun for kids and adults alike. The back yard is literally big enough for a baseball field! Breakfast in the tree house and swimming in the afternoons made for a memorable trip. The house is very convenient to all parts of San Antonio. The missions are walking distance. The owners were easy to work with and helpful. The house is really great and has everything you need. The game room is a hit too! We have been to San Antonio on many occassions and this trip was tops because of the house. Beats the multiple hotel rooms any day of the week!

                        My family and I (6 adults and 2 small children) stayed in this home for a week while celebrating my brother's graduation from basic training. Although it was a 20min drive to Lackland, it was worth it!! My brother was grateful that we didn't spend his time off base in a hotel room, but that we had a home to relax in. San Antonio is pretty easy to get around so we were able to enjoy it's amenities, but this beautiful clean and well-maintained home tucked away in the San Juan Mission allowed us to enjoy our family time together in solitude. The home is very close to bike trails and playgrounds, so we were able to take runs and play with the kids. San Antonio is working on a gorgeous bike trail that follows the river all the way through the city, and at this home you are only minutes off the trail! It comes highly recommended as the owners had great open communication before and during our stay making our visit relaxing. It's a beautiful home and property with an open concept that allowed us to swim every morning and afternoon and had a beautiful kitchen with all that is needed to cook and eat in. One thing we thought interesting is that the master bedroom has no doors. It is at the end of the L-shaped home, but doesn't have a door. It seemed odd the first day, but despite all the people (and toddler) in the house, it was still a quiet retreat for those using it. This didn't pose a problem, just something that caught us off guard. Other perks: Free Wi-Fi, bath and beach towels, hair dryers, and laundry

                        We (self, spouse, kids and grandkids) stayed at this wonderful home while visiting the San Antonio area in April. Everything was as or better than described and shown in the photos. Eric was a very pleasant and accomodating host, and readily available to answer any questions we had. The home itself is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac and the pool was fantastic to come home to every afternoon after visits to the Riverwalk, Zoo, Missions, Museums, etc. The one-level layout allowed the grandkids to play without concern, and the kitchen was the centering point as we ate in most evenings given our crew. In addition having the extra room next to the garage allowed the youngest baby to have his own space for early bedtimes and naps. I'd recommend this home to anyone visiting the San Antonio area.
