San Antonio house description

Robin's Nest I was established on July 13, 2009 to offer a home away from home to Lackland AFB BMT families, as well as visitors to Sea World, Fiesta Texas, The Riverwalk, Ft. Sam Houston, and other points of interest in San Antonio, Texas. Throughout the years, Lackland AFB BMT families have been welcomed to our home to reunite and spend time with family and friends. Lackland AFB is a short drive from Robin's Nest I, which makes this home a true Lackland vacation rental. Over the years, I have connected with many Lackland BMT families and have incorporated what is important to make their stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. I have a 'no-risk' change of date policy in place for Lackland BMT families.

With Sea World a short 2 miles from Robin's Nest I, the convenience of visiting the park is paramount. The Riverwalk is a 20 minute drive to downtown. With major thoroughfares nearby, most of the city is within easy access.

This home was our home for 18 years, and the location is fabulous! With me being an avid gardener, while we made the location our home, we installed a beautiful wrought iron fence so that I could enjoy gardening with an English garden theme. The yard is larger than in most of the surrounding subdivisions, and this allowed me to have a vegetable garden and greenhouse in the backyard. This neighborhood is very established and we enjoy greeting our neighbors who have stayed throughout the years. The master bedroom is on the first floor, and the other two bedrooms are on the second floor. The back yard has a very large covered patio with a bar style patio set. Most of the yard is covered with trees which makes for a very pleasant stay in the summer months of San Antonio; which is a wonderful city to visit no matter which season.

Our goal is to provide you with a comfortable, relaxing stay while you are in San Antonio. We are honored to welcome many Lackland AFB BMT families, along with Sea World visitors. Please take a moment to read our guest comments.

We enjoyed welcoming Lackland AFB BMT families so much that we expanded to include Robin's Nest II. Lackland and Sea World visitors have been enjoying the inviting warmth of Robin's Nest II since March 2010. Robin's Nest II is just around the corner from Robin's Nest I. Our second 'Nest' is the same size as the original Robin's Nest, same neighborhood, single story. Both houses can be rented to accommodate large parties such as a family reunion. Robin's Nest II can be viewed via Please contact Robin via phone, text, or email for more information.

Both Robin's Nests are in a very vibrant and growing area of San Antonio. There are shopping centers and restaurants within five minutes. HEB Plus grocery store is less than three minutes away, a major shopping center is less than 10 minutes away. With the exception of Sea World, which is minutes away, all other major San Antonio attractions are easy to reach due to accessibility of major thoroughfares.

For Lackland AFB or Sea World guests who desire to stay in a 4 bedroom, luxury home, please check out our newest addition, Robin's Nest III ( Robin's Nest III is within 5 miles to Lackland AFB and is a newly constructed home, established as Robin's Nest III on April 2, 2013.

Please know that we wish to congratulate and thank each and every family who is in San Antonio to celebrate a Lackland BMT graduation. You are the reason that we live in such a wonderful and free country. Thank you for your service and sacrifice!

                  Year Purchased: 1987

                  About the owner: We have decided to set our home up as a vacation rental so that other people can travel to the beautiful city of San Antonio, Texas and have a lovely home to stay in while they are here. Robin and Shannon have devoted many hours to setting up this property for maximum enjoyment. We have greatly enjoyed the process and wish to invite guests to our home.

                  Why the Owner Chose San Antonio:
                  Robin's Nest was our home for 18 years, so we didn't buy it to be a vacation rental. When we moved to our present home, we wanted to keep Robin's Nest. A vacation rental in this neighborhood is perfect for guests to experience a vibrant area of San Antonio.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The location of Robin's Nest is so convenient to both Sea World and Lackland AFB. After that, the advantages continue with the fact that it is located near major thoroughfares which allow easy access to all attractions that San Antonio has to offer. There are numerous shopping opportunities close by, but with a quiet, country feel. The front yard is totally fenced with a beautiful blue wrought iron, and the back yard is fenced with a six foot tall block privacy fence, which affords total peace and quiet in the back yard. Robin's Nest has a large, covered patio which adds to the enjoyment of the back yard. Most of the yard is shaded with trees which adds to the appeal of this home.
