About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Robin's Nest I has recently undergone an extensive renovation throughout the home. Granite counter tops have been added to the kitchen, new flooring, both showers have been updated, along with new pedestal sinks in the bathrooms. Fresh paint to the walls, and new furniture. Updated photos to be added shortly.

Robin's Nest I has been welcoming guests since July 13, 2009, as a way to thank our military families, and to offer a home away from home to Lackland AFB BMT families, as well as visitors to Sea World, Fiesta Texas, The Riverwalk, Ft. Sam Houston, and other points of interest in San Antonio, Texas. Throughout the years, Lackland AFB BMT families have been welcomed to our home to reunite and spend time with family and friends. We offer a discounted BMT rate and no-risk, no-cost "recycle policy" refund. Lackland AFB is a short 15 minute drive from Robin's Nest I, which makes this home a true Lackland vacation rental. Over the years, I have connected with many Lackland BMT families and have incorporated what is important to make their stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

With Sea World a short 2 miles from Robin's Nest I, the convenience of visiting the park is paramount. The Riverwalk is a 20 minute drive to downtown. With major thoroughfares nearby, most of the city is within easy access.

Robin's Nest I also welcomes longer term stays. This home is perfect for families to enjoy. A high chair and pack-and-play is at the house to be used as needed.

This home was our home for 18 years, and the location is fabulous! With me being an avid gardener, while we made the location our home, we installed a beautiful wrought iron fence so that I could enjoy gardening with an English garden theme. This neighborhood is very established and we enjoy greeting our neighbors who have stayed throughout the years. The master bedroom is on the first floor, and the other two bedrooms are on the second floor. The back yard has a very large covered patio with a bar style patio set. Most of the yard is covered with trees which makes for a very pleasant stay in the summer months of San Antonio; which is a wonderful city to visit no matter which season.

Our goal is to provide you with a comfortable, relaxing stay while you are in San Antonio. We are honored to welcome many Lackland AFB BMT families, along with Sea World visitors. Please take a moment to read our guest comments.

We enjoyed welcoming Lackland AFB BMT families so much that we expanded to include Robin's Nest II. Lackland and Sea World visitors have been enjoying the inviting warmth of Robin's Nest II since March 2010. Robin's Nest II is just around the corner from Robin's Nest I. Our second 'Nest' is the same size as the original Robin's Nest, same neighborhood, single story. Both houses can be rented to accommodate large parties such as a family reunion. Robin's Nest II can be viewed via vrbo #292354. We have recently added Robin's Nest IV, which is the same floorplan as Robin's Nest II. The newest Robin's Nest (IV) is two houses away from Robin's Nest II. Please contact Robin via phone, text, or email for more information.

All three Robin's Nests are in a very vibrant and growing area of San Antonio. There are shopping centers and restaurants within five minutes. HEB Plus grocery store is less than three minutes away, a major shopping center is less than 10 minutes away. With the exception of Sea World, which is minutes away, all other major San Antonio attractions are easy to reach due to accessibility of major thoroughfares.

For Lackland AFB or Sea World guests who desire to stay in a 4 bedroom, luxury home, please check out our newest addition, Robin's Nest III (vrbo #470366). Robin's Nest III is within 5 miles to Lackland AFB and is a newly constructed home, established as Robin's Nest III on April 2, 2013.

Please know that we wish to congratulate and thank each and every family who is in San Antonio to celebrate a Lackland BMT graduation. You are the reason that we live in such a wonderful and free country. Thank you for your service and sacrifice!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: We have decided to set our home up as a vacation rental so that other people can travel to the beautiful city of San Antonio, Texas and have a lovely home to stay in while they are here. Robin and Shannon have devoted many hours to setting up this property for maximum enjoyment. We have greatly enjoyed the process and wish to invite guests to our home.

Why the Owner Chose Far West Side, San Antonio, TX, USA:
Robin's Nest was our home for 18 years, so we didn't buy it to be a vacation rental. When we moved to our present home, we wanted to keep Robin's Nest. A vacation rental in this neighborhood is perfect for guests to experience a vibrant area of San Antonio.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location of Robin's Nest is so convenient to both Sea World and Lackland AFB. After that, the advantages continue with the fact that it is located near major thoroughfares which allow easy access to all attractions that San Antonio has to offer. There are numerous shopping opportunities close by, but with a quiet, country feel. The front yard is totally fenced with a beautiful blue wrought iron, and the back yard is fenced with a six foot tall block privacy fence, which affords total peace and quiet in the back yard. Robin's Nest has a large, covered patio which adds to the enjoyment of the back yard. Most of the yard is shaded with trees which adds to the appeal of this home.
