Later in his career Mr. Willis designed many fine homes and significant buildings here in San Antonio. Comprising of two suites, we live in Suite 2, which is the upstairs residence.
We are located just off of Broadway in the Museum district of Midtown. We're in wonderful small neighborhood rich in history and interesting architecture of the early 20th century. Surrounded by the historic Fort Sam Houston you can enjoy views of the Victorian era officer’s homes and a walk around the block you’ll see horses grazing in pasture. It really is an amazing view, to be only 1 mile from downtown.

So Much Character!
Brent was easy to work with. He was available during our stay to answer any questions we had.
The house was full of character. Eventhough an old house it was beautiful, from the wood flooring and furnishings to the veranda and peaceful backyard with the pool and spa. We had more than enough space for the three of us to spread out and enjoy our stay.
We especially loved the veranda in the mornings with our coffee listening to the birds, the evenings having a glass of wine and the guys enjoying their cigars (no smoking inside which we really respected) and then at night just listening to the quietness winding down from the day. The spa was a nice treat, very relaxing.
The kitchen was well equiped with anything you would need. The bathrooms had more than enough towels (even towels for the pool). The bedrooms had plenty of room and the beds were comfortable. The living room and den had nice comfy furniture. The dining room was very nice but we preferred being outside on the veranda.
You can walk to the Pearl Distrct (less than a mile) but we took the car to the Riverwalk (a few miles) and parked at the mall. From the mall we enjoyed the River Walk and walked to the Alamo and then the Tower of America where we enjoyed the revolving restaurant and views of San Antonio.
We went to SA for our nephews graduation at Texas A&M so used this as our home base after the graduation and so glad we did. It was the perfect place for us! Close to the airport too.
We highly recommend it!! Thanks Brent! And thanks for the treats...coffee, cookies, salsa, bottled water!!
Thank you... from all four of us!!
Owner was very gracious and accommodating. We had late flights, showing up at different times and Brent still awaited our arrival. He let us in and showed the house and where everything was located. He was always available for any questions we had during our stay. The house was as advertised. Everyone in our group was very pleased.
The duplex was as described in the advertisement. It was spacious and updated and the outside area was very relaxing. Brent was easy to reach and very accommodating,. He even had some welcoming snacks when we arrived! It was walking distance to the Pearl, which had several restaurants and shops! Don't miss the open market on Saturday or Sunday morning! I would recommend staying here!
We're so happy you enjoyed! We enjoy sharing our home and love the location. Thank you very much, Texas Hospitality is the best compliment!
The property was great
No problems finding the property, it was everything we had hoped it would be. I would definitely stay there again. One note...the dryer doesn’t work. Owner is really a nice person!
Great place! Great hosts!
This is the 4th time we’ve stayed here and we do plan to return. It’s loveky? Spacious, and so convenient to downtown. We enjoyed swimming in the pool (yes, it IS mid-October!) and lounging on the patio.
Great place and great times.
Been here a few times and we love it so much we just can't wait to come back. Thanks guys, we'll see you again this fall.
We are located at the end of a quiet street literally in the backyards of Fort Sam Houston's Historic officers homes. While just over a mile to the infamous Alamo, enjoy a walk around the block at see horses grazing in pasture on Fort Sam's park like grounds. We're in wonderful small neighborhood rich in history and interesting architecture of the early 20th century. We feel we have established an urban oasis in the city.
This great central location just off Broadway is about two miles north of the Alamo. We overlook Fort Sam's historic officer quarters and San Antonio skyline. The location offers easy access to downtown, Fort Sam Houston, museums, Alamo Heights, great shopping and more. Easy highway access in any direction.
