Robin's Nest I - Lackland 9 miles - BMT discount/recycle policy

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


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!

About Robin Flores

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.

Robin Flores purchased this house in 1987

Why Robin Flores chose Oak Creek

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great BMT Location

  • 4 of 5

Robin's Nest is a great place to spend time with your newly minted Airman. Plenty of room and everything you need to let them have some downtime and enjoy the family, with close enough proximity to everything in San Antonio you could ask for, including Lackland at a nice 20 minute drive.

Perfect for BMT Graduation

  • 5 of 5

Why stay in a hotel and sit around staring at each other when you can rent a home? This house was perfect for us during my son's graduation from AFBMT. It gave him a stress free environment to unwind with his brothers. It's 15 minutes to the base and has all kinds of places to eat nearby or you can grill steaks and shrimp out on the grill like we did one night. Robin is a delight to deal with and was extremely helpful. If we ever come to San Antonio again, we will definitely call Robin.

Perfect San Antonio, Texas - BMT Family, Personal Vacation, Rental has everything !

  • 5 of 5

Robin's Nest is home away from home. It was everything and more that the photos, descriptions and reviews said it would be.Robin was always helpful and has this property totally ready for any occasion. We were so impressed with the cleanliness (inside and out), plenty of towels (I'm not talking one extra towel but several), washer & dryer amazingly helpful and WiFi. Robin thinks of everything before you do. We will always rent from Robin when we are in the area, she made renting a house easy. We will always recommend this property and any other property Robin has available to our friends.We were so happy to have a home to spend time with my sons two fellow Airmen for a meal and quality "family" time , this in itself ment so much to us! We were so close to Lackland AFB,the Airport, Riverwalk, and right around the corner were shopping, dining, grocery and gas stations,but you would never know it is such a nice and quiet neighborhood.

Family stay for AF BMT graduation

  • 5 of 5

Robin's Nest 1 was 100% everything you find on the web site. Robin was so friendly and accommodating to us. We had to come earlier than expected because of Hurricane Sandy and were able to add 2 more days onto our stay. We had to change our plans because of air flights being cancelled. My Grandson and one other Airman we adopted for the weekend really were able to relax and enjoy watching movies, playing games and home cooking at the house. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. While there, the neighborhood children came trick or treating. Robin is so helpful and available to help with questions about the house or San Antonio in general. Everything was very clean and comfortable. I suggest going on google maps and taking the street tour to familiarize yourself with the neighborhood. I did, and when we were approaching the area everything was familiar to me, especially the shopping areas and places to eat within walking distance of the house. The neighbors are so friendly and helpful. You will enjoy the freedom as opposed to a motel room. I highly recommend renting from Robin.

Geat place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

First I want to say thank you Robin for allowing us to use your house, you are a true jewel. We loved Robin's nest and Robin. If you need a place to stay do not hesitate to contact Robin. We came in for our son's BMT graduation. Robin's nest is the perfect place to stay. You will not be disappointed.So convenient to Lackland base, grocerie stores, gas stations and food chains. Also a big thanks for allowing us to bring our furry babies with us. The fenced in back yard was such a big help. We really felt comfortable in the neighborhood. I loved the big HEB store that was only about 3 blocks away, we could find everything we needed there and didn't have to fight traffic. If you are coming in for a BMT graduation, Robin can also give you much needed information on the events. Thanks again Robin for make our stay feel like home. Our son loved the house too, on his town pass he never wanted to stay gone to long. He always wanted to get back to the house to " just hang out" Thanks again Robin for everytning...
