Kids and adults alike can enjoy endless hours of fun and laughter while playing various board games.
OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: PARK: Kids and adults alike will enjoy a fun time at the park; equipped with two jungle gyms, one for toddlers and the other for older kids. There is also a see-saw, swings, park benches, tables and plenty of oak trees to provide shade.
BAR-B-QUE: Adults can bar-b-que in the front yard / driveway (approx. 4-car driveway) while watching the kids at the park. The area is large enough for a grill, tables, chairs and lawn chairs, and access through the garage leads directly into the kitchen for added convenience.
KIDS PLAY: The Cul-De-Sac provides a great area for riding bikes, skateboards and/or rollerblading for the kids.
OUTDOOR EXERCISE: For those who enjoy walking and/or jogging, enjoy a jog around the neighborhood or along the main road outside the subdivision which leads up to Sea World. There is plenty of natural wooded areas for a long stretch alongside the outer perimeter of Sea World, which provides for a very nice nature walk and/or jog.
NOTE: My vacation home is located in a community that does not allow street parking. My driveway can accommodate approximately 4 vehicles.
Please make a special note about our sleeping accommodations: we have three bedrooms, the master bedroom has two (2) Queen size beds, the bunk-bed room has a twin size on top and bottom and another twin size underneath. The last bedroom has a Full size bed. If you would like, you could bring in air mattresses, and set them where there's room. There is a futon mattress in the garage that you could utilize in one of the rooms as well.Although I ALLOW up to 14 guests in my vacation home, I don't claim to have enough beds for everyone. If you value having your entire party stay together (rather than in multiple hotel rooms), and are able to work with the provided accommodations, then WELCOME HOME!

About: My name is Carlos. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. My wife Stephanie and I have 5 children; 4 boys and a girl.
I am a God-fearing, bible believing Christian and seek to glorify God with this home and my service towards all my guests. I am one of the deacons at Grace Community Church of San Antonio (www.gccsatx.com & www.illbehonest.com). If you are looking for a church to visit while in San Antonio, we would be glad to have you and your family!
I enjoy working from home where my children are homeschooled. My wife enjoys gardening and raising her chickens; she wants a goat but I don't know about that. :-) I enjoy riding my bike at the San Antonio Mission Trails, Down Town, Riverwalk, and some other places, including a little off-road mountain biking.
Why San Antonio: Well I didn’t choose San Antonio, God chose it for me 40 years ago. Oblivious to how great our city is, I spent most of my teenage & early 20’s hoping to travel to other cities and for an opportunity to experience life anywhere but San Antonio. The Lord saved me when I was 25 yrs old and I realized that there was nothing new under the sun. Wanting to run from my home town would have been nothing more than chasing after the wind.
In 2001, I started working for a service contractor which provided me an opportunity to travel. I would always stay in a box (hotel), and if there was any leisure time, I would get in the rental car and explore the city’s scenery. It was nice but lacking a personalized experience. I wanted to know more about the city than just its buildings and scenery. I wanted to know the people and the experience of being a local; or at least feel like one for a few days. I thought, if I could stay amongst the people, then perhaps I could meet interesting people, share the gospel of Jesus Christ and build friendships.
What an opportunity we all have when renting a Vacation Rental Home! I once did a site visit at Disney World in Orlando Florida for a contract. There was an area in Downtown Disney that could convert your child’s hair, makeup and attire to become a princess for the day. Well you could become a San Antonian for a few days or even a few weeks when staying in one of my vacation homes! Come get to know the neighbors, community, and my fellow San Antonian’s!
San Antonio is a beautiful city that has preserved its history and provides an aura of nostalgia. The Alamo, Missions, Riverwalk, Market Square, King William Historical District, La Villita, etc…, make the city attractive, romantic and family oriented. The city is vast and widespread with amenities such as countless golfing venues, shops, theme parks (Sea World & Six Flags), museums, nature parks, zoo, sporting events, horseback riding, bike trails, swimming, shooting, hunting, etc...
The Unique Benefits at this House: For the square footage, this property has a great layout! The driveway has been expanded to accommodate up to 4 vehicles and a large concrete patio has been added in the back yard. The children can enjoy play in the fully-enclosed backyard or at the park next door; park features high-end playground equipment. Sea World is located so close that you can hear screaming from the rollercoaster when outside. Access and distance to nearby necessities is all within 5 minutes.
