Great little private pool house!
Overall, the stay was very good. The owner was very hospitable and welcoming. She pointed to me some really awesome jogging trails in the neighborhood, which would have been much better than running in the street here. The space was just as advertised in the pictures, and the bed was very comfortable!
My only issue was that the previous guests were clearly smokers. (I double checked the smoking policy for this house, just to make sure I didn't accidentally book a smoking area, but it's definitely no smoking). The owner apologized several times, and did everything she could to fix the situation. She offered me another room/bathroom in the main house while I waiting for everything to be cleaned and aired out. She washed every towel, sheet, and rug in the place, and brought in fans to circulate some fresh air. She used air fresheners and candles to cover it up, which was definitely better than the smoke. At the end of the second day, the smoke was much better, but still noticeable when I came back in after leaving for a while.
Overall, the owner's hospitality saved the day and I had a good stay. Also, the pool was very, very nice in the summer heat!
Cristina was a delight. The room was really good and very clean. Use of her pool was an added joy. Highly recommend staying at her place.
Convenient and friendly owner
Nice and good central location in San Antonio. Owner was super friendly and even helped us with our dog we brought. Contact her in advance before arriving...something is going on with vrbo and they were not sending our reservation to her after it was paid for. She was able to fix it right away though :)
My fiancé and I stayed here for a quick weekend. We flew out late Thursday and left early Sunday. The thought had crossed my mind that maybe I should message the owner but I hadn’t, after all the instructions available on the app gave me a “gate and door” code and as this is not my first time using this method of lodging and I’ve always been free to come and go as I please, I figured it would be ok. We arrived at the property at about 1 am. There was no gate and therefore no gate code. I attempted to call the owner and left a message via phone and on the app. My fiancé insist we go to a hotel which was very frustrating to have to spend more money when we already paid for a place for the night. The next morning I called again. She called me back and was confused saying that they did not have me staying there, she said she would look into it and call back. In the mean time I sent screenshots of the money coming out of my account 3 weeks ago as well as my email from VRBO confirming my arrival the day we were to arrive. She called back saying the confusion was because they did not offer instant booking-this was not an instant booking as my account showed I booked 3 weeks ago and I even received a message from her saying my stay was confirmed and that she would message closer to the date (never happened). Finally she said the reason was that two last names were listed (makes no sense as she didn’t know anyone was to arrive that night). She said to give her two hours to prepare the room (which would be 11 am). I asked if we could just arrive at 4 which is normal check in time and be reimbursed for the night we were not able to stay to which she said “this is not like a hotel.” Being that the hotel had no rooms for the next night, I didn’t want to cause an issue and just left it alone.
We arrived at the property about noon, she had left the back door unlocked (no code this was just a door inside a back fence). There were tarps up in the back yard I suppose due to construction. The sauna is used as storage and the pool was dirty as well as the floors and rugs in the room. Also the shower was way too hot.
Sunday she text me saying she’d give me a big discount next time. This will likely be my only trip to San Antonio and even if it wasn’t I would not be staying here. To me this proves the owner knows I got jipped but was unwilling to fix it during the current stay.
Great location in a nice neighborhood. Beautiful garden and pool. The owner was very helpful.
We enjoyed our stay and the owner was wonderful. We would stay again.
Idealic setting with an excellent host!
Cozy pool side stay in a nice neighborhood with instant access to city life, but the seclusion of a mountain hideaway. I stayed here to be close to a client and lacked the time to really enjoy what this place had to offer. Cristina is a great host who pays attention to details and is very accommodating. Wish I had more free time to spend here - definitely recommend for a couple or individual!
