Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for being so accommodating and for making my stay in SA such a wonderful experience. I'm afraid this all too brief visit will end up costing more than I planned because the first thing I will do when I return home will be to buy a mattress just like the on on this bed! I saw a lot in just three days-Thanks for the use of the bike! But there's so much left to see, so I am looking forward to a return trip and you will hear from me when I do! thanks again for everything.

Centrally located studio in eclectic neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Whether on the tree-surrounded porch, or inside the high ceiling-ed apartment, it's equally relaxing. The bed is super comfy. The river bike trail, especially south to the missions, is incredible. We ate at Stella, Senor Veggie, Green Cafe, and Viva Vegeria, and sampled craft beers at Freetail, Alamo, and Blue Star. Thanks for everything Jake and Natalie.

Very comfortable apartment in cute historic neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, updated roomy apartment above detached garage. Private access and porch. We enjoyed eating breakfast outside. Very comfortable king sized bed. Our teenage daughter slept on the large couch (not a sleeper sofa). The owners thoughtfully provided everything we could need. They even let us use 3 bikes for riding around town. We will definitely try to stay here again if we visit San Antonio again. It is very conveniently located too. A great experience!

Airy and cozy studio

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! It's spacious and airy. Great windows and natural light. Natalie is very sweet and responsive to any question you may have. The bed is very cozy. While this isnt super close to downtown, We walked to the Riverwalk (we like to walk) and the roughly 4 miles to Brackenridge park. Otherwise, we used Lyft to get around.

My only complaint has nothing to do with the property... San Antonio has a train problem. You can hear every train that rumbles by at night. We solved this problem by running the provided fan all night which blocked the sound of the whistles and we were able to sleep very well.

I highly recommend this place and I would absolutely book it again.
