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!
