About The Owner: I am a retired educator and airline employee. My husband and I enjoy traveling, but we also love our home in San Antonio. Gardening and keeping the grounds lovely is a favorite pastime. We especially love to entertain, and enjoy the evenings around the patio area. We cook out often and enjoy al fresco dining and a glass of wine or a margarita by the pool. We love to get to know our guests. There is always an open invitation. We have two golden retrievers and several cats who will want to be petted and loved.

For a relaxing getaway, this is the place to come! You are right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of San Antonio, and yet once you enter this property, you feel like you are in the country! Please see virtual tour under Amenities!

                                                                  Eric V.

                                                                  We absolutely loved our stay at the Barn House. It was comfy and well stocked with everything we needed. The house worked great for two couples and Rhonda was wonderful. I’ve rented several properties for vacation and I’ve never had a better experience with the owner. She truly cares! We would definitely look up this property if we came back to San Antonio.

                                                                  Comfortable, clean, and private, loved it!

                                                                  Melody H.

                                                                  We had a wonderful stay at the Texas Barn-House. Paul and Rhonda are great hosts and the barn has everything you need for a relaxing time. The location offers easy acces to all that San Antonio has to offer. What a perfect combination!

                                                                  Long term rental

                                                                  Chris & Dick G.Tucson,AZ

                                                                  We were so fortunate to be able to stay at the Barn House for two extended periods of time...July and August and then again mid October thru December. We absolutely adored our time there. Lots of green space, very private and quiet and deer on a daily basis. We were right in the heart of San Antonio, but felt we were in the country.

                                                                  The pictures don’t do it justice as it’s a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home that has every amenity you could ask for. Rhonda and Paul couldn’t be more wonderful and make sure you have anything you might need.

                                                                  We will be back again for another long term stay as it has become our home away from home. Thanks for everything, Chris & Dick Gibson

Rhonda and Paul are awesome! Love the new bigger shower and the stairs were beautiful! We love sitting outside enjoying tea in the morning when it is cooler or a glass a wine in evening. Buddy the dog always comes over for a friendly hello. Nice having a protected covering for my new SUV. Also was nice to know the place was secure with the gate and high walls. Was fun watching all the deer in the neighbors yard. Rode our bikes to the park and up and down the road. Went kayaking. So many things to do in a 30 min drive. And we will be back as we are house hunting and need a place to stay while we do this. Thank you for opening your home to us!💕�💓�💗�

                                                                  Josh W.

                                                                  We loved staying at The Texas Barn-House. It was comfortable, clean and located on a beautiful estate. Though it's in San Antonio and not far from the main attractions (for us it was Alamo, Riverwalk, Sea World, Fantastic Caverns, etc with the kids) we loved that it felt like we were in the country. Nice and quiet. And LOTS of deer. Everywhere. Even in the heat of the day. The master bed/bath was perfect for the wife and me and we put the kids in the second room. Kids liked having the big tv to watch when we were at the house in between adventures. We cooked meals there (only 1.5 miles to fantastic grocery store) and had all the equipment we needed. Even used the pool. Great hospitality, wonderful owners and a fantastic property that feels like a secluded country escape right in the heart of NW San Antonio. We will be back. Thanks for having us!
