Robin's Nest II - Lackland 9 miles, BMT discount/no-risk 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 II has been welcoming guests since March 2010 and has a highly sought after one-story floor plan. So much so, that we have recently added Robin's Nest IV to our family of vacation rentals. The newest member, Robin's Nest IV, has the same floor plan and is two houses away from Robin's Nest II. Both homes are in a family friendly neighborhood, which is an easy 15 minute drive to Lackland AFB. We offer a BMT discount for all our homes, along with a no-risk, money back policy in case of "recycling".

Robin's Nest II is 2 miles from Sea World, and within 20 minutes to Downtown, Six Flags, and very convenient to many points of interest in San Antonio due to the major thoroughfares close to the neighborhood. We enjoyed making new friends with Robin's Nest I, so we decided to set up our second home to be your home away from home. When you step inside Robin's Nest II, you immediately feel relaxed and at home. In the fenced back yard, there is a large, covered patio to enjoy a bar-b-que.

Robin's Nest II is within walking distance to Robin's Nest I, and Robin's Nest IV. Large groups may want to consider staying at both, or all three houses instead of booking multiple hotel rooms (combined can accommodate up to 24). Robin's Nest II and IV are just around the corner from Robin's Nest I, and all three are very close to major thoroughfares, which allows quick and easy access to all parts of the city.

About Robin Flores

Robin's Nest I was our home for 18 years. When we moved to another home, I wanted to keep my first home. I enjoyed meeting my guests so much, that I wanted to set up another vacation rental. I was blessed with finding Robin's Nest II within walking distance to our first house.

Robin Flores purchased this house in 2009

Why Robin Flores chose San Antonio

Robin's Nest II's location is ideal for getting to all locations in the city of San Antonio and the Hill Country. This side of the city is beautiful and has a home town feel. I live near both my vacation rentals, and I wanted another home to share with guests spending time in San Antonio.

What makes this house unique

Location is superb with this home. The one-story open floor plan is ideal for relaxing and spending time with family and friends. Sea World is extremely close, as well as Lackland AFB. Robin's Nest II is quiet and peaceful. My guests can relax after a long day out enjoying San Antonio, or bring their Lackland graduate back for some 'home' time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Robin,

First of all, thank you for being so patient with us through making the reservation, then having to postpone due to my son's surgery. I'm not sure what we would have done without you. Your home is remarkable, we thoroughly enjoyed staying here. Jeff, my son, was so exhausted from BMT that the one thing he wanted was to stay at the house and relax in regular clothes. A hotel would not have been the same. We all had a great time in San Antonio, but the best part was spending quality time with Jeff here at the house! Thank you again!

We were very disappointed with this property. We took a month long road trip and rented five different houses through Vrbo and this was by far the worst one. I spent the entire time killing bugs. When I woke up the first morning I had bites on my stomach. We took all the bedding off and washed everything. We continually had to kill bugs the entire time. I don't know if they pay someone to spray for bugs, if not, they really need to. If rental had not been paid for I would have left and gone to a hotel. We also washed all of the glassware as it didn't look clean. We never received the arrival information from the owner. We had to contact them for instructions. It also didn't have personal touches like the other rentals did. Usually when we rent the owners provide a book with instructions and suggestions for the area. We've booked properties through Vrbo for many years and we always stay at properties that have good reviews. This property did have great reviews, we just didn't have the same experience as others did.

Owner's Response: Mary, I hope that you and your husband had a very nice post retirement trip. I am sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant experience at Robin's Nest II. When I first read this review, I thought that it was mistakenly submitted to my house, and then I recognized your name. As is my protocol, I email check-in instructions after I receive payment and the rental agreement back. I still have not received your rental agreement back, even though I requested it before your check in. All of my properties are inspected by me the morning of a check in, and pest service is provided on a quarterly basis with the same company that I have used for the past eight years. My cleaning staff is top notch, and everything is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between guests. This is San Antonio, and we have a lot of insects here and because of such, all windows and doors should remain closed. I understand that having a dog with you means that the doors will be opened more often. My goal is to make all of my guests feel at home, including instructions and suggestions for the area. I'm sorry that you did not find the information. I work very hard to provide a home-away-from-home and am very proud of the great reviews that this house receives. I take the personal touch to speak with all of my guests and let them know that they can contact me anytime that there is a question or concern. Since you booked through, I am surprised that you did not contact them about your stay, while you were at the house. As I state on the laminated check-in that is on the bar, to please contact me with any concerns within the first 24 hours. I understand that you were probably busy, but a simple phone call would have confirmed to me that you had indeed checked in, and I could have addressed any concerns that you may have had. Sincerely, Robin

The perfect place to stay for BMT Graduation.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Robin's Nest II so much. Our new Airman truly appreciated being able to just relax "at home." The home is very close to many stores and restaurants, and a quick and easy trip to Lackland AFB. Robin is wonderful to work with and truly goes above and beyond!

Our Texas House

Thank you once again, Robin, for providing a wonderful place for us to stay while visiting our daughter and her family in San Antonio. The location is perfect for us, close to family, HEB and other shopping, restaurants and a reasonable drive to all the major tourist attractions. Sea World is so close we could see their fireworks every evening. Even for our stay of a month we only had to bring clothes and toiletries. Everything else was in place in the house for our use. The internet and cable TV worked great. The neighborhood is quiet and I feel safe walking by myself. We find you so friendly and easy to work with and hope to be back again next winter.

Air Force BMT Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin... Our stay at Robin's Nest II was perfect. We arrived on Christmas Eve for our son's graduation on 12/27/13. We were notified late in training that trainees graduating the week of Christmas would be given Christmas day with their families off base! While this was awesome news, many families already had travel set up not to include this day with their airman. We were lucky to be arriving in time, however, due to our late flight, would be unable to purchase groceries for Christmas day meals for our son and 3 additional airman (and a mother) whose families would not arrive until later! I contacted Robin, sent a Visa cash card and she shopped for my promised items!!! Needless to say, I would later find out that these airmen would have my son read the letter specifying Christmas breakfast and dinner every night for weeks before they went to bed! None of this would have been possible without the help of Robin and the wonderful accommodations. These young men couldn't say enough about how happy they were to have a place to relax and hang out for awhile. If we return to San Antonio, I won't stay anywhere else. We cannot express our gratitude enough. It was an amazing week and we are so thankful that we had a place to spend quality, private time with our son.

Owner's Response: Paula, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. During the weeks leading up to your stay, we talked many times via text and I got to know you and your family. I was more than happy to help out with Christmas meal plans by stopping by HEB Plus and picking up the items on your grocery list. As a mom myself, I know how important it is to accommodate our children's wishes. :) Thank you so much for the pictures that you shared with me. My goal is to make every visitor's experience to Robin's Nest as special as the one you and your family had. I look forward to having you back in the future. Thank you for sharing your Christmas with other graduates and a mom outside of your family. I wish you many blessings in the future and would love to welcome you back to Robin's Nest in the future. Robin

Thank you so much for opening up your home to my family. We had such an enjoyable experience while visiting Texas from sons BMT graduation. It was so nice to be able to come back to the house and just let him kick back and relax just like home. We were able to cook his favorite meals while he relaxed watching movies and sleeping.

The description of your home matched so perfectly, it was clean well equipped with all the necessities. Everything you described was available for us to use. You were so helpful with any questions that we had prior to our arrival. I couldn't ask for a better place to stay. I highly recommend staying at Robin's Nest for your visit to Texas.
