About the Property
SAFE, PEACEFUL NEIGHBORHOOD. NO NEED TO DRIVE ONE SINGLE FREEWAY TO DOWNTOWN
*Upon request from the guest. Applied to bookings from 4 to 6 nights. 7 days or after, a weekly price applies upon request.
Behind the simple facade of this historic and urban cottage style house, lies a whole new and cozy world of contemporary ambiance and decor. Based on its colorful decor, my Family and I named it 'THE HOUSE OF COLORS'
Our house was just rehabbed and remodeled during the second half of 2013. We tore walls, added new windows, wall texture, painting and floors to create open and friendly spaces with lots of light. Then we added brand new contemporary furniture full of colors.
The house is centrally located in the prestigious Historic District of 'Olmos Park Terrace' where new young and mature urban professionals are moving to. This is an amazing location as the house is just 10-15 minutes away from San Antonio's main tourist spots. 4-5 miles to Downtown, Riverwalk (Paseo del Rio) and Convention Center, 5 Minutes to San Antonio's Zoo and SA's top 2 shopping, dining and entertainment centers which are 'North Star Mall' and 'The Quarry'. 24 minutes to Lackland Air Force Base. 18 minutes to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and 23 minutes to Sea World.
Also our Historic District neighbors the small affluent/upscale City of 'Olmos Park' which is inside San Antonio. Within walking distance there is a great neighborhood cafe, and very nice restaurants (Mexican, Italian, French, Vietnamese).
After visiting all the tourist spots in SA, our house offers a cozy patio with brand new and contemporary furniture to enjoy a nice evening with family/friends or a nice BBQ
Very few vacation rental houses are so close to everything and at the same time offering a setting of luxury and contemporary decor with new furniture.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I am originally from Monterrey, Mexico. San Antonio has been my 2nd hometown for me and many of my family members. After working many years for consumer product corporations in Marketing Management positions, I lost my job back in 2009 due to the economy collapse. That is when I decided to move from the busy lifestyle in Los Angeles to San Antonio where most of my family members live. Having nurtured a passion for real estate during the last years of my corporate life, I decided to start a new career rehabbing and selling properties. Then I decided to rent one of my houses in VRBO/Homeaway and the rest is history. Today I own 2 rental houses in San Antonio and my family and I love sharing our houses with other people visiting San Antonio.
Why the Owner Chose Uptown, San Antonio, TX, USA:
Urban life is more fun and exciting than suburban life when going on vacation or living temporarily in a city. When you live or vacation close to downtown San Antonio, you are closer to the culture, energy and personality of a city. When a saw this house for the first time, I saw a very simple cottage house facade. But after seeing its amazing location in a safe Historic District less than 4 miles from downtown and all the nice restaurants, bars and shops located in less than 2 miles, my dream was to turn this house into a cozy paradise of contemporary ambiance and decor, full of light and color.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Amazing location close to everything. Safe Historic District with a mix of Hispanic traditional families and upcoming young and mature urban professionals (Single and Married) Great contemporary decor and ambiance.
