Recent South Texas Plains reviews

  • Great House

    "We enjoyed staying at this San Antonio house. It was decorated very nicely, and it felt like home. We had two couples and it was perfect for us. There was enough room for 4 people to be comfortable. It was nice to have 2 bathrooms for getting ready and it was a bonus to have a washer and dryer. It stormed while we were there and having the garage was terrific. It's in a convenient location and a safe neighborhood. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. When we visit San Antonio again, we will stay here."

  • Perfect Vacation

    "This place was perfect for us. We had a party of 2 moms, a grandma, and 4 kids ages 7-15. It fit all of us perfectly. The pool wasn't used as much as we had hoped, it was cool, cloudy, and rainy much of the time and the kids decided the heated pool wasn't heated enough (they are a bit picky and spoiled ;). The hot tub was wonderful as well. Cleanest ever. The house was extremely clean, we have stayed in many vrbo homes over the years, this one was on the top of the clean list. We could not believe how close to everything we wanted to do this place was. Just a few minutes drive and we were everywhere we needed to be, and had been given the best route to get there!!!! The bedroom with 2 Queen beds in it was good for us two grown sisters. We had no problem sharing a room, almost like old times! The small bedroom made from a large closet was perfect for our 15 year old. Gave her some privacy from the younger kids. The living room gave us plenty of room to hang out and watch tv or visit. The kitchen and eating area was large enough and had the cooking pans we needed. Nothing fancy but wonderful for us. Having a washer and dryer was essential for us. This home had it and the owner provided the soap. Can't beat that. When we come back to SA for a get away we will most certainly try this place again. If you stay at this home make sure to make a stop at Oblate Café, just down the block. The best Mexican food I have ever eaten. We ate there multiple times during our stay. Great food, super prices, and the staff were so nice!! The house is complete glass if you have small children that rough house this home might make me a bit nervous. I was glad our kids were up a bit older for this rental. This is the only negative thing I could come up with and it is not negative just an observation."

  • An Oasis in the City

    "Great place to stay! Beautiful view and very spacious. The owners were super nice and even have some food and flowers in the apartment upon our arrival. The garden is beautiful as is the entire interior of the building."
