About the property

Spacious 3BR/2.5BA+loft. Enjoy nature in PRIME location! Featured on TV!

Featured on Sweet Retreats TV Show! Sleeps 8-10

Why squeeze into hotel rooms when you can have your own home away from home? This is truly a gem of San Antonio. This gorgeous, wooded property is a botanical paradise that backs up to 70 acres of land. Enjoy your morning coffee while watching birds, deer, and other wildlife. Or, stroll through the beautifully landscaped yard and take in an array of flowers and trees never seen before in San Antonio. On your walk, grab a lemon from our very own citrus tree! All this in the heart of San Antonio! YOU CAN'T BEAT THIS LOCATION! SIX FLAGS, LA CANTERA, THE RIM & MORE! If you are wanting an 'escape' on your vacation, but want to be close to all the action, then this is the home for you.

Our home is in a great location (Northwest side of San Antonio, just west of 1-10 and just south of 1604). It’s just 5 minutes from Six Flags and LaCanterra Golf Course and outdoor mall; 10-15 minutes from SEA WORLD and Lackland Air Force base, just minutes from groceries, stores, restaurants and anything you could ever need during your stay. The neighborhood was established in the 1980’s, and it’s been very well maintained. It’s quiet and family oriented, so we do ask guests to be respectful of that (NO PARTIES).

This is a gorgeous home, abundant with character that will last well after your stay! State-of-the-art kitchen with all the upgrades including granite counter tops and bay window with pool views. Living room walks out to private oasis with enormous pool, over-sized yard, and views of 70 acres of land.


The beautiful weather in San Antonio affords us the luxury of having our pool open YEAR ROUND! Our pool is not heated, but history has proven December and January (and sometimes February) are really the only months it gets too cold to swim. The pool at this home is 9 ft. deep at the deep end and features a diving board. We do manage a few different properties, some of which have hot tubs, so please inquire if you are looking for that amenity.

Here is the bedroom layout:

Master Bedroom: King-size bed

Bedroom #2: Queen

Bedroom #3: Queen

Loft Area: Pull-out king-size day bed

Our calendar is updated, our rate information is accurate, and you will receive a response to your inquiry within 3 hours. We value your time, and we thank your for your interest in our home.

Fabulous Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommond this property! The house was great and had everything we could possibly think about. My family loved it. The house was spacious and comfortable. You felt right like home. The master was the size of a small apart. The pool was amazing in this Texas heat. I will definitely be staying again.

Wonderful gem in an amazing city

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in the property.great interaction with the renters beforehand who provided lots of info and made the booking process simple and easy - our deposit was returned very quickly and all questions handled efficiently.

Minutes away from all the shops and restaurants you could ever need ( with so many more available in this wonderful city) the house is at the end of a quiet culture de sac in a lovely residential area.

Easy to find and about 25 minutes on the freeway to downtown - again awesome.

The house is unique in its position, backing onto a wildlife area, we had deer popping into the garden for their dinner ! Birds were amazing.

The description was accurate of the property, what we loved was that this felt like a home - not a minimally furnished rental, like so many others we have stayed in - very much loved.amenities in the house were plentiful, down to sandwich bags, kitchen roll etc nothing to rush out and buy - just arrive and enjoy.

The layout of the house was perfect giving our boys their own upstairs space with the gorgeous master down stairs.

The outside space was why we booked this property and did not let us down ( just remember the bug spray !!!!!) After numerous rentals in the states the backyard was crowned " the best pool ever' by my children when spent hours on the diving board whilst we enjoyed relaxing in superb surroundings.

We were so sorry to leave - we will be back.

Beautiful property in a safe, friendly cul-de-sac

  • 5 of 5

We were even more impressed with the property once we arrived. There was plenty of room for our party of 6 and the house had everything that we needed to make our stay beautiful! The pool was a wonderful feature for a day of relaxing or just a quick dip after a long day of sightseeing. We went to a ton of different attractions and this property seemed to be a great location for everything we wanted to do! We would definitely recommend this property or even rent there again if we were ever back in the area!

Great House and location

The house was awesome! Great location, near everything, but the wildlife was really cool! Deer, grey foxes, squirrels and birds. Saw the Deer and foxes morning and nite! A rare treat in the city. Even saw a large Bald eagle!
