Not what I expected

  • 3 of 5

The place was located about 15 minutes from downtown which was nice. It was also very spacious and comfortable.

Upon arrival we noticed the area we were in was a little run down. When we got into the house it was a little different than we were expecting. Overall, the stay was different than we thought but turned out good.

Owner's Response: Dear guest Anna, Thank you for choosing my home for your San Antonio stay. I read your review and could see that some of your experience was different from the expectations. I am curious as to what exactly as we have detailed photos and a floor plan showing on the listing site. I think we have plenty information on the property as well as from previous guests, not to have surprises or "the unexpected". We consciously have furnishings that are unlike a hotel / motel settings, to make it feel like "home away from home" and more personal. My home is an older model and in a neighborhood mostly of multi-ethnic retired and military community, near Ft. Sam Houston. One of the positive sides of this is being close to downtown and other major sites of the city. The newer suburbs with newly built homes are far away from those locations and at a much higher cost. I am glad overall your stay turned out good and could enjoy the conveniences. Regards, Laszlo

The neighbors next door, who are in charge of taking care of the place were wonderful. Very pleasant humble people. They actually helped my sisters and I when our car wouldn't start. House is well kept. No complaints.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in San Antonio!! Having such a great place to stay played a big part in the overall experience. The house is centrally located. Sheri was great! She was available when needed, very friendly, and really cared about making sure we were satisfied. It was great to have a lot of space and for everyone to be able to have their own privacy. It was really neat to be able to look at all of the cool things to look at in the house. It was a bonus for the kids to have access to internet and cable during down time. The house is centrally located. There were plenty of stores and restaurants close. We did not have to go more than 30 minutes to get to anywhere. This is a great place to stay when in San Antonio!! We will be back!!

San Antonio Visit

  • 3 of 5

I recently stayed at this location and found the property to be sufficient for the needs that I had for the weekend. The home is spacious and accommodating with a full kitchen that includes a lot of amenities to help you prepare your meals. Having the property manager of the home next door was a plus because she was able to assist with the TV, internet connection when it was lost, as well as providing access to the outdoor grill.

I happened to be there to attend a men's ministry event and did not bring my wife so the atmosphere worked for my needs. My wife would not have been comfortable because the furnishings in the seating area are not very comfortable or inviting and could use some updating. There were some minor issues with insects that could be easily rectified. This is a great place for the person who is comfortable being in an outdoor environment because of the arid garden landscapes in the front and back yard.

The owner and property manager are very responsive and accommodating and went out of their way to ensure the information and assistance that I requested was received. I would use the facility again for my personal needs but not a place I would take my wife because she is used to a more upscale experience.

My only suggestion regarding payment processing would be to include the $95.00 cleaning fee in the initial payment process and not as a note. I have no problem with the fee for cleaning but think it would be more beneficial to clients to see it in a more prominent location.

Thank for making you home available to me for the men's ministry event.

Regards,

Thomas Gibson
