About the property

2 story, 3 bedroom/2.5 bath home with views of the city, Alamo Dome

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath spectacular downtown home! If you're coming to San Antonio to check out the downtown area, there's no need to look any further! Why stay 30 minutes away when you can walk to the AlamoDome, Riverwalk, Hemisphere Park and more from this CUTE downtown property? For the same price (or less) as a hotel room, you can stay in this spacious 2-story, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home which features a detached garage, updated appliances, elevated ceilings, flat screen TV’s, and a great view of downtown. We’re located one block from the AlamoDome, and 1 mile walk (or drive) from the River Walk, Convention Center, River Center Mall, Hemisphere Park, and Alamo. Sunset Station is just a few blocks from this gem and features fun night life at various bars, as well as an array of fantastic restaurants. In the evening, enjoy drinks (from your fully equipped kitchen) on the back patio and take in the stunning views of the Tower of the Americas and the Alamo Dome. If you have children who like to play in the yard, our home includes a large, fenced in backyard with sprinkler system, which is very rare in downtown San Antonio.

We provide an entire home for less than the price you would pay for one hotel room downtown. If you’ve rented on VRBO or other sites before, you know there are many advantages over hotels, but the main thing we like to provide our guests is a true “home away from home.” The benefits are endless, particularly if you are traveling with 3 or more people (there is a real cost-savings). We provide basically everything you need from towels and linens to cookware, baking supplies and more! We include hand soap and dishwasher soap, but you will want to bring your own soap/shower gel/shampoo (basically all toiletries). We take a great deal of pride in our homes, and try to provide the best customer experience possible, so all you have to do is ENJOY!

Sleeping arrangements (all bedrooms located upstairs):

Bedroom 1: 1 queen master w/ en-suite

Bedroom 2: 1 queen

Bedroom 3: 1 double

Convertible bed(s): 1 sleep sofa /futon

Master suite includes TV, large closet, private bath and views of the AlamoDome. Additional full bathroom accommodates guest rooms (1/2 bath downstairs). Since you’ll be staying downtown, you’re very close to everything San Antonio has to offer: Sea World (15 min), Six Flag (15 min), The Quarry (8 min), Zoo (7 min), Botanical Gardens (7 min), AT&T Center (7 min), and of course all of the famous downtown activities: the Market, Alamo, River Walk, trolley tours, and more! Other home amenities include washer & dryer, single detached garage, free wireless internet, DVD player, 2 flat screen TV’s, stainless steel propane grill, stainless steel kitchen appliances, outdoor furniture, and much more! GREAT FOR CORPORATE/BUSINESS TRAVELERS. Minutes from convention center and Alamo Dome!

Why Jeff Wells chose Near East Side


Guestbook comments from the owner

“I was in San Antonio for a geography conference being held at the La Quinta Inn and this place was perfect. It was a pleasant 20 minute walk away in a lovely neighborhood. The house was immaculately clean when we got there and they provided us with ample towels, toiletries and everything else listed. We used the kitchen to cook breakfast every morning and I wish we had enough time to use the grill in the backyard. I would highly recommend this place to anyone with a large group of people. Even if you are a small family this place would be better than staying at a hotel.”

Clean, comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We made a trip to San Antonio on short notice to cheer for our girls basketball team at the state tourney at the Alamodome. This house could not have been located better for us. We walked out the front door and into the Alamodome in less than five minutes.

When we walked into the home, everything was sparkly clean, and the modern vibe was awesome. The beds were very comfortable and we had plenty of linens. Everything in the house was in perfect working order.

The booking process was simple. Ann, with the Wells team, did a great job of communicating with us before and after our trip. The best thing about this property might be the cost. The two rooms we would have needed would have cost close to $2000 for the weekend, so the value here was incredible.

We would definitely stay here again. Maybe we’ll get to make the trip to the state tournament soon.

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a most wonderful stay in your Texas Hill Country Home. The write-ups and photos were completely on point. There are not enough positive adjectives to use to describe our stay, time, and experience in this home. A few compliments that immediately come to mind.... the location, cleanliness, layout of the home, comfort level of the furniture, kitchen equipment, pool, and all of the details were extraordinary. We will definitely be back and look forward to another wonderful stay. Thank you for having us and for being such gracious hosts and hostesses from the first point of communication to the last touch of check-out. We will see you again soon!

Not sure what goes here.


  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this home. It was just as pictured with only a few furniture changes which were no big deal. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. There were plenty of pillows, blankets and towels. We had 6 people and were not crowded at all. It was very nice having a grill and a patio where we could hang out and relax. The owners sent us a list of their favorite restaurants and attractions which was very helpful. We walked everyday to our destinations and returned by Uber at the end of the day. I would definitely stay here again!!
