About the property

3 bed, 2.5 bath 2400 square foot home with pool in quiet neighborhood

Gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home on a half acre, located in beautiful Texas Hill Country! Cool off with a dip in the pool. Read a book in a rocking chair on the front porch and watch the deer as they walk by. Feel all your stress just melt away.

This home sits nestled in a quiet, naturally-landscaped neighborhood in the north end of San Antonio. You will feel like you are truly getting away from it all, while staying close to all area attractions. It is minutes from Highway 281 N, a major highway that goes past the airport and directly downtown. It's easy to get to any city attraction or to some of the popular Hill Country destinations like Schlitterbahn, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Natural Bridge Caverns and Natural Bridge Wildlife Park, just to give a few examples.

Up to eight people can comfortably sleep here. The Texas-themed master bedroom has a king bed with en suite; the serene blue bedroom has a queen-sized bed; the cowboy-themed kids room has bunk beds (double on bottom and single on top); there is a sofa bed on the main floor in a side room as well as an extra queen-size air mattress. There is a lot of space for your family and friends to unwind.

We offer lots of perks for families with children. Of course there is the pool with shallow steps for toddlers to splash and play safely, with a deep end as well, a huge outside checkerboard, sand box, play fort with swings and slide, basketball hoop, toys and books in the kids room along with a Wii. There are lots of rocking chairs too in case you rock your little ones to sleep. We have stayed at vrbo's with our kids and we've included what we wished other locations had.

There is a full kitchen with all appliances, pots and pans and everything needed to make a great meal. All you need to bring is groceries. There is large grill on the covered patio. Also we have a washer and dryer, wireless internet and cable.

We reply promptly to all inquiries. Your time is important and we value our guests!

Great place to stay for families!

  • 5 of 5

My family is spread out over Texas, so San Antonio was a good middle point to meet. We chose to stay at a house rather than a hotel so we could spend more time together and this house was perfect for us (6 adults, a 4 yr old, and two 1 yr olds). It was very clean, acommodating, in a quiet neighborhood, and beautiful. We loved spending time in the pool, feeding the deer, and just relaxing on the porches. Linda was great to work with, was quick to respond to any questions I had prior to our stay. We had no problems during our stay, so we didn't have to bother her, but I know she would taken care of anything promptly had a problem come up. I will definitely be recommending this house to anyone looking to getaway in the San Antonio area. My family is already ready to go back.

Wonderful Memories!

  • 5 of 5

House was exactly as described; pool felt great after long days spent on Riverwalk and sightseeing, deer came to visit daily, beds were comfortable, amenities were very efficient. Gave our family a great place to relax and make memories before our sons deployment. Thank you, Linda!

My family and I, as well as friends of ours, stayed in Linda's home for 10 days! We had the best vacation ever! It was all of our first time ever in Texas and we couldn't have asked for a better home to stay in. The pictures on the website are gorgeous, but in person, this house is stunning! Not only was the house fully equipped with what we needed, it also was in a wonderful location! It is located in a nice quiet neighborhood and we enjoyed walks with our children in the evening. It is also the perfect distance from popular destinations such as Downtown San Antonio, The River Walk, The Alamo, Fiesta Texas and Sea World. We highly recommend this home! We can't wait to visit again!!
