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.
