Recent South Texas Plains reviews
"My family of 7 stayed here for a week while on vacation. The house is clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. The location was very conveniently located, close enough to everywhere we wanted to visit, but far enough away from the city to be a quiet and peaceful place to stay! The owner was very friendly and helpful. Our five children also loved this place and are already asking when we can come back. We have already recommended the place to friends, and will definitely come back if we return to San Antonio."Guest: CJ Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: September 9, 2014View listing
"My partner and I attended a conference at the JW Marriott which was about 15 minutes away and way out of our budget. This was not only much more spacious than a hotel room but more convenient as well. It was comfortable and quiet with restaurants nearby."Guest: HVAC Chick Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: December 19, 2014View listing
"This cottage is exactly what I was looking for. Sleeping accomodations was perfect for the two of us, but also large enough to have my daughter and her family over for Thanksgiving. There was ample room inside to set up a large table, and lots of running around room on the ranch. The kids loved feeding the horses, and Linda was a great host...she even provided marshmallows and skewers and invited everyone over to the campfire at the big cottage. Thank you Linda!!"Guest: Karen Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: December 1, 2014View listing
"Our family of 3 stayed for 2 nights in this rental. It was beautifully decorated, with a fully stocked kitchen of all necessary utensils. Spotlessly clean, with a sofa long enough for my teenage son to sleep on comfortably. Even though this is only a studio, we found it very roomy for the 3 of us, with a nice back porch and a fire pit and pool in the beautiful little yard.We brought our bikes, and were able to bike easily to the riverwalk, Hemisphair Park and the missions, but you could just as easily have walked to all the great sights downtown. This is a super location and we would definitely stay here again!"Guest: Leslie Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: December 1, 2014View listing
