San Antonio Vacation Rental with a pool! 09/16/2011

VRBO Bear stayed here:

I had a fantastic time in this spacious 4 bedroom estate in San Antonio, TX. The house was full of personality and provided me and my friends with the perfect getaway. We spent hours lounging in the 40x20ft pool, playing cards in the tiki bar, and cooking dinner in the well equipped kitchen.

The house is a 1960’s estate located in the well established, beautiful neighborhood of Alamo Heights and is about 5 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes to the Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio. It offers 4 bedrooms/ 3.5 bathrooms, and could comfortably sleep 10-12 people, which makes it perfect for a family getaway, golf getaway (near Quarry Golf Course), or larger group.

It really is a dream home for any group with 2 dining rooms (formal and casual), a media room with a big screen projector, pool complete with a diving board and floaties, tiki bar with grill. Plus it had a steam room and Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom, 2 iMac computers, and so much more!

I highly recommend this vacation rental as perfect for groups or family visiting San Antonio, TX.
