Overview

About the property

2 Bed, 1 Bath Neighborhood Apartment- Sleeps 5- Walk To Downtown

The apartment is adjacent to our private home - a renovated Craftsman style house from the 1920s! This modern apartment is located just a few blocks from San Antonio’s hottest new area – the Pearl Brewery and the River Walk North. We are located literally down the street from San Antonio’s newest attraction, the Children‘s Museum, an active center for children’s participation. The “Doseum”, as it is called, is packed with exciting, hands-on, learning opportunities. Located perfectly, the apartment has convenient access to US Route 281 and Interstates 35 and 10 that connect you quickly to all of the area’s main attractions.

From the moment you walk in the door, you will feel at home. Located on a second floor, and its private staircase (and entrance), the apartment showcases an open living concept and two full sized bedrooms. A sleeper sofa-bed is included in the living room for your convenience. This love seat sleeper has a Sealy mattress and memory foam topper for your comfort.

All beds feature fine hotel quality microfiber linens. The master suite has a comfortable king size bed with a new hybrid pillow-top mattress. It also includes a walk-in closet, plenty big for any resident. The junior bedroom has a brand new Sealy 14" pillow top queen mattress topped with gel/memory foam. It also includes its own full sized closet.

The fully tiled bathroom conveniently opens up to both bedrooms. It includes a double-sized walk-in shower, in-unit washer and dryer, as well as luxury toiletries and blow dryer.

The kitchen is fully equipped. It has granite tile countertops, modern cabinets, and stainless steel appliances including: dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster, double sided large refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/filtered water, and microwave.

Also available for your use is a paved patio with lounge areas, barbeque grill and a five-person therapeutic spa tub.

The apartment includes free high-speed WiFi.

We are dog lovers as you may see from our pictures. However; we cannot accept pets in the rental.

About Dean and Jeanette

Jeannette and I have lived in this house for almost 9 years. We bought it for location, location, location and that is what we got. We have been married a total of 20 years, have grown children and enjoy hiking, biking, and walking with our rescue Labrador Retrievers. We are avid travelers and our apartment reflects our expectations, nothing but the best!

Dean and Jeanette purchased this apartment in 2008

What makes this apartment unique

This home is minutes from downtown San Antonio nestled in a small quaint Conservation District neighborhood. The new north extension to the famous San Antonio River Walk provides access only steps away. The Midtown, as the location is coined, is San Antonio’s hottest location. New apartments and condominiums are popping up all around. The convenience to downtown – just a mile plus away - and the quiet safe streets that are rare in most large cities make this an ideal location. My wife and I fell in love with the area and we think you will too.

Highly recommend this beautifully furnished apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

The amenities are unbelievable; from the luxurious bed linens to the essential oil body soap and shampoos. Jeanette and Dean were wonderful hosts. The apartment is located within walking distance of Pearl and easily accessible to SanAntonio by car, bus or if you are adventurous as we were walking. Jeanette helped us plan our daily outings from sight seeing to the wonderful "happy hour" at Zinc. We always felt quite safe when coming and going. We also enjoyed walks around the area as the River Walk extends within a couple of blocks of the apartment. We loved being greeted by Radar and Bailey who were very well behaved. Thank you Jeanette and Dean for helping to make our girls trip fabulous!!

260 Post Avenue, San Antonio

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great! It was like being at home.

We were very surprised that it was not stated or we miss it that the apartment was on the 2nd floor. Possibly, the future advertising should state that the apartment is on the 2nd floor.

With suitcases, it was difficult upon our departure to come down the stairs with heavy bags. Luckily, when we arrived Dean & Jeanette assisted us in carrying the suitcases. At our ages, it becomes more difficult to navigate the stairs with suitcases. Otherwise, the stay was great!

Owner's Response: Anthony, thank you so much for our feedback! We love our five star reviews but we welcome any feedback that can help make our guest's experience even better! By clicking on the "amenities" section on our listing, it does show that our apartment is on a second floor but we have added it in the main description on the main page to make it more visible for our future guests. We're really glad you loved your stay and if your travel plans bring you back to San Antonio in the future, please be sure to look us up!

Very comfy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! The place was very comfy and clean. The kitchen well equipped! The beds are very nice and the sheets are great. There was great trails nearby for running and a workout station. Then easy access for going to Japanese Gardens. The riverwalk was about a 10 minute drive.

This place is perfect for a family with 2 or 3 small kids.

  • 4 of 5

My family of five including 3 adult kids enjoyed our stay over 5 days. We spent most of our time on the go but it was a very nice spot to come "home" to in the evenings. I thought the one bathroom might be a challenge but it was not an issue for us. The location is walking distance to the Pearl Brewery and we were able to catch Uber to/from the airport and to downtown for $7 to $13. We didn't use the Jacuzzi Hot Tub but it looked clean and inviting. The bedding was clean and comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed for cooking meals though we only cooked breakfast. We walked to the family dollar type store (around the corner) and to the HEB grocery (1.5miles). The neighborhood felt safe enough to do this. We would stay here again and recommend it for anyone considering a stay in San Antonio.

Owner's Response: Hi Joe, thank you so much for the kind words and great review! As you can see from our nearly 60 reviews, we strive to uphold our 5 star rating! I didn't see any specific feedback from your review that we could have done to earn that 5th star. We do provide a lengthy description in terms of maximum number of guests, amenities, bedrooms, bathrooms etc, as to make sure our guests are comfortable, and that we exceed the comforts provided by other verb properties. We welcome any feedback you may have that would have earned your 5 stars. Please feel free to reach out to us via the VRBO app as we are always looking to make sure our gusts have a 5-star stay!
