About the property

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

Take your cowboy boots off and sit a spell in this relaxing Hill Country home. You’ll love this space because of the peaceful setting, spacious rooms, fun western decor, huge backyard, and of course the amazing pool. Guests also rave about the deer that come to right to the doorstep throughout the day.

Gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2400 square foot home on a half acre, located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country! Cool off with a dip in the pool. Relax in a rocking chair on the front porch while watching the deer amble 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. With the large lot and abundance of trees, you will feel like you are in the country while staying close to all area attractions. Minutes from Highway 281 N, it's easy to get to any city or Hill Country attractions like the River Walk, Alamo, Fiesta Texas, SeaWorld, Schlitterbahn, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Natural Bridge Caverns and Natural Bridge Wildlife Park, just to give a few examples.

Sleeps up to 8 adults comfortably.

3 bedrooms upstairs:

- master bedroom has a king bed with en suite with shower and jacuzzi tub

- the serene blue bedroom has a queen-sized bed

- the kid's room has bunk beds (double on bottom and single on top)

- queen sofa bed on the main floor, and extra queen-size air mattress.

There are two full bathrooms upstairs, and one half bath downstairs. There is plenty of space for your family and friends to unwind.

The back porch is a serene place to escape to with plenty of comfortable deck furniture overlooking the pool, and a large Weber grill.

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, sandbox, play fort with swings and slide, basketball hoop, toys, games, and books in the kid's room. There are rocking chairs too in case you rock your little ones to sleep. We have stayed at vacation homes 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.

We also have a washer and dryer, wireless internet and cable.

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

Excelente place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We leave in south Texas and we were having family coming from Argentina, just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving Day. We liked this house, because it was just perfect for our family reunion. The location is very good, a quiet neighborhood and very lovely visitors, deers. Yes! There are deers around the area.

The house was very clean, well maintained and so as the pool. Unfortunately the weather was a little chilly early in the morning and late afternoon, so we couldn’t enjoy it that much.

Linda, the owner always answered me very quick, she was always there for every question. She was very nice and yes, we would rented it again if we needed to.

Thank you Linda.

Great home, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughters, and I stayed at here for a few nights in October. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and it was our first visit to San Antonio.

Our daughters are young (3 and 1) and greatly enjoyed the kids room (complete with toys, stuffed animals, books, etc) as well as the swimming pool.

The house is wonderful! Very nice size, clean, and privately situated from the neighbors.

We would definitely stay again!

The Pool Is Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better getaway. The attractive home was quiet and secluded even though located in a dense area of subdivisions. For a couple of meals, we drove in to San Antonio on Hwy. 281, but we primarily "lived" on the covered patio. (The 2nd floor deck is pretty rough, but the first floor patio more than makes up for it.) The high-quality outdoor furniture was comfortable and I liked the Texas-themed pillows. But the jewel of the property is the pool. It was delightful and we swam every day. The pool is beautiful, clean, and private. We enjoyed the birds (cardinals, hummingbirds, blue jays, black-crested titmouse, turkey and black vultures, Carolina wren, and a calling flyover of a red-shouldered hawk). We put corn on the fence support and enjoyed a beautiful scrub jay's raucous visits. We also fed corn to the delicate does who came to the front yard. We know kids would love this place, especially the cowboy/cowgirl appointed bunk bed room. Highly recommended if you need a getaway, but still want to be fairly close to a city. Linda was an efficient landlord, welcoming, responsive, and helpful. Again, highly recommended.

Perfect house for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family. Great location that was quiet enough to have deer come right up to the front door yet close enough to groceries, restaurants and attractions. The backyard pool and playground were a huge hit with the kids. Spacious master bedroom and tvs in every room. We had so much fun we even extended our stay for another day. We will definitely be coming back!
