Your friends and family can spread out in over 1900 interior square feet plus an expansive 10 x 42 covered veranda with outdoor dining. This comfortable space invokes a feeling of being in a quaint cottage. Simply furnished with an array of finds and simple antiques, our goal was to create an interesting, clean and comfortable spot for your stay in San Antonio. Sit back, relax and kick your feet up on the coffee table.

The entire space overlooks the lush yard with pool and spa. Feel free to treat yourself and family to backyard Texas BBQ and beat the heat in the pool. The pool is seasonal; however the hot tub is available year around.

Our unique duplex is large in scale and was designed by George Rodney Willis, a lead draftsman for Frank Lloyd Wright at the turn of 20th Century. 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.

3 blocks away you’ll find Brackenridge Park and Golf Course. Walking paths lead you to North through Brackenridge Park, The San Antonio Zoo and more. A few blocks South and you’ll find The Pearl, a culinary hub and select shops. Saturday mornings at the Pearl offers a fun and trendy Farmer’s Market as well.

Relaxing and spacious with character

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this place, having stayed at a number of VRBOs around the country. Beds were comfortable, living space was spacious and spread out with multiple relaxation areas, backyard and pool were very private with lots of birdsong. A nice quiet neighborhood. If you like old houses with lots of character and hominess, give this one a try!

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.
