About Carlos

Hello! My name is Carlos; owner and founder of SA Vacay (San Antonio Vacation Rental Homes). I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. My wife Stephanie and I have 6 children; 4 boys and 2 girls! I am a God-fearing, bible believing Christian and seek to glorify God with this home and our commitment to service towards all of our guests. I am one of the deacons at Grace Community Church of San Antonio (www.gccsatx.com & www.illbehonest.com). If you are looking for a church to visit while in San Antonio, we would be glad to have you and your family! I enjoy working from home where my children are home-schooled. My wife enjoys gardening and raising her chickens; she wants a goat but I don't know about that. :-) I enjoy riding my bike at the San Antonio Mission Trails, Down Town, Riverwalk, and some other places, including a little off-road mountain biking.

Carlos purchased this House in 2003

Why Carlos chose Bexar County

Well I didn’t choose San Antonio, God chose it for me 40 years ago. Oblivious to how great our city is, I spent most of my teenage & early 20’s hoping to travel to other cities and for an opportunity to experience life anywhere but San Antonio. The Lord saved me when I was 25 yrs old and I realized that there was nothing new under the sun. Wanting to run from my home town would have been nothing more than chasing after the wind. In 2001, I started working for a service contractor which provided me an opportunity to travel. I would always stay in a box (hotel), and if there was any leisure time, I would get in the rental car and explore the city’s scenery. It was nice but lacking a personalized experience. I wanted to know more about the city than just its buildings and scenery. I wanted to know the people and the experience of being a local; or at least feel like one for a few days. I thought, if I could stay amongst the people, then perhaps I could meet interesting people, share the gospel of Jesus Christ and build friendships. What an opportunity we all have when renting a Vacation Rental Home! I once did a site visit at Disney World in Orlando Florida for a contract. There was an area in Downtown Disney that could convert your child’s hair, makeup and attire to become a princess for the day. Well you could become a San Antonian for a few days or even a few weeks when staying in one of my vacation homes! Come get to know the neighbors, community, and my fellow San Antonian’s! San Antonio is a beautiful city that has preserved its history and provides an aura of nostalgia. The Alamo, Missions, Riverwalk, Market Square, King William Historical District, La Villita, etc…, make the city attractive, romantic and family oriented. The city is vast and widespread with amenities such as countless golfing venues, shops, theme parks (Sea World & Six Flags), museums, nature parks, zoo, sporting events, horseback riding, bike trails, swimming, shooting, hunting, etc...

What makes this House unique

For the square footage, this property has a great layout! The driveway has been expanded to accommodate up to 4 vehicles and a large concrete patio has been added in the back yard. The children can enjoy play in the fully-enclosed backyard or at the park next door; park features high-end playground equipment. Sea World is located so close that you can hear screaming from the rollercoaster when outside. Access and distance to nearby necessities is all within 5 minutes.

                                                          We enjoyed our stay at Carlos’ house while in San Antonio. It had everything we needed to live comfortably. Carlos was quick to respond with any questions we had and ready to accommodate our needs. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                          Perfect for BMT Graduation

                                                          Tanya S.

                                                          This home was perfect for our family as we celebrated my daughter's graduation from BMT. We had a house full but there was plenty of room and we even cooked a full meal that our Airman loved! It was a home away from home! Carlos was the perfect host and the home was well appointed with all of your basic needs. Well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. Very convenient to base however give yourself at least 1.25 hours for the Lackland festivities due to traffic and road construction.

                                                          Lovely relaxing stay for BMT graduation

                                                          Carlos was a great host. Nice clean home and very relaxing. Wonderful for the family to hang out, relax, play games, watch movies. His home had every thing we needed. So much nicer than staying in several hotel rooms. He was very accomodating for early arrival and late check out to match our flight times. Nice to have some home cooked meals too. Would stay here again.

                                                          Awesome place

                                                          Perfect, clean, and warm home! My family and I, were in San Antonio for our son's basic training graduation. We didn't want to stay at a hotel, we wanted him to have a taste of home with home cooked meals. Our family enjoyed every bit of the house, our friends who joined us loved the house and it felt like home. Thanks Carlos.
