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.

Peaceful and private!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely recommend this place to anyone. Sitting in the porch at night is such a treat. The place was clean, smelled good too. The bed and couch so comfy. We brought our dogs. The neighborhood walks were charming. The neighborhood is friendly. I look forward to our next stay!

Perfect Hosts & A Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed in this lovely studio for 26 days straight. The apt. is truly the perfect place for both short and long term stays. It has all of the necessities and the dresser/side table combos are perfect. I did not meet Michelle but Natalie, her husband Jake and their three kids live in the main house as co-hosts. They are wonderful! They provided us with food recommendations, brought packages to our door, and made sure we had everything we needed. We never had any issues with the street parking and the river walk is a mere $7 Uber/Lyft ride away (much cheaper and more convenient than parking by the river walk). This place is basically the ideal location for everything. If you like to cycle, you can get to the river walk in a matter of a couple of minutes. There is a wonderful little park a half mile away with a kid's play ground and workout equipment. A bus stop is basically right outside the door, too. This place is right next to the highway which is fantastic for getting around (you don't hear the highway in the apt). You feel like you have utter privacy in this apt. since it's above the garage and not attached to the house. A lovely patio is an added bonus. We stayed during August during the peak of summer so my only complaint is the apt. doesn't really get below 75 degrees until the middle of the night. So when you first go to bed, it can be a little warm at times but it's nice and cool by morning. If you stay longer and need to wash clothes, there is a laundry mat three blocks away but this place is pretty bad during the summer because there is no A/C and it's pretty dirty but it got the job done. If you have a car, I recommend taking the time to drive to a nicer laundry mat (I went to San Antonio Green Laundry). Natalie will provide you with fresh sheets and towels once a week at your request which is super nice. I'd definitely stay here again especially due to the ideal location!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a beautiful review. Yes, the laundromat near the house is less than perfect, however with some advance preparations we are happy to give you a day to do your laundry within our house. As for the AC...Texas is hot. The unit we have is regularly serviced, and will take some time to achieve a 70 degree temp when the outside is over 100! Texas summers are nothing to be envious of!! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay. And, I am happy you made mention to the 2 things you would like to have seen improved. I wish we could change the laundromat..and the very hot summer Texas weather.
