About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 maximum)
Enjoy a unique getaway at this secluded and peaceful San Antonio property. Situated in the heart of the Mission district and on one and a half tree shaded acres, this contemporary show place has all of the amenities including flat screen HDTV's, two king & two queen beds. Relax by the full size swimming pool in the Texas sunshine (even in the winter as the pool is heated). Tour the World Heritage Site San Antonio Missions from the property by foot, bicycle or car and enjoy local restaurants at one of America's favorite vacation destinations.
The home is the architecturally designed "dream home" of a local real estate developer. We purchased the property from the family in 2002. After extensive interior remodeling, Casa Mission Rio is now a modern showplace.
Many of our guests say they find the property so peaceful & enjoyable that they just stay "home" for much of their visit.
The property & Mission San Jose are 5 miles south of downtown & the Alamo; this area is called "Southtown." Southtown is where the arts district is & many great new restaurants are locating.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
While planning my trip to San Antonio, Texas, I anticipated a terrific vacation and knew the property was going to be great from the first day I corresponded with owners Eric and Alice. They were always quick to respond, helpful, informative and full of answers and suggestions!
My expectations were exceeded as I caught my first glimpse of the large stucco house. Eric was there to meet me and we hit it off immediately! Before entering the house, I explored the backyard with the lush vegetation, stately pecan trees, and the heated pool. Then I spied the tree fort positioned high in one of the large trees! Climbing the ladder to the fort, I had a great view of the San Antonio River running along the rear of the property. Beary, beary pretty!
Upon entering the house I oo'd and ah'd as I inspected the eclectic art collection, the interesting group of art deco furniture, the centrally-positioned circular gas fire pit, and the contemporary surfaces -- lots of high-end amenities in a modern and inviting setting. I brought a few friends with me, so we had our choice of three beautiful bedrooms inside the main house (only one word for the master bedroom suite: WOW!). One couple chose the garage apartment with its king-size bed, private bath and efficiency kitchen. No one minded cooking in the incredible kitchen -- very open and spacious with a gorgeous view of the pool and grounds. The garage TV room was an amazing retreat where we watched movies in a cozy and comfortable setting.
Though we definitely had fun at the famous San Antonio River Walk, the Alamo, the San Juan Mission and lots of wonderful restaurants, it was always a special treat to come back to this beautiful VRBO property where we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
