Why Ricardo Valdes chose Edison

I love the urban life. When you live or vacation close to downtown San Antonio, you are closer to the culture, energy and personality of a city. After identifying the amazing location and safe environment of this house less than 4 miles from Downtown and less than 2 miles from all the nice restaurants, bars and shops, my dream was to turn this house into a cozy paradise of contemporary ambiance and decor, full of light and color. The House is also located just 10 minutes away from the Airport.

What makes this house unique

Amazing location close to everything. Safe neighborhood with a mix of Hispanic traditional families and upcoming young and mature urban professionals (Single and Married)

Great contemporary decor and ambiance.

Convenient, comfortable and perfect for our family !

  • 5 of 5

For our recent week in San Antonio, we went through VRBO and found this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home. The location is convenient to downtown and has close access to the interstate for access to Six Flags and SeaWorld. The home is in a quiet neighborhood, yet only 3 blocks to HEB grocery and close to San Pedro Ave. for restaurant choices. The owner, Mr. Valdes, happened to be there when we arrived. We felt very welcomed to his home and appreciated his local recommendations to us. The home was very clean and well furnished. Please be aware that the home does not have a dish washer or washer/dryer. Otherwise, we felt we had everything we needed. There is a nice backyard with a grill. There is off street parking. We would definitely stay here again when we return to San Antonio and recommend the same to others.

Fantastic

  • 4 of 5

When you first walk into the property, it looks just like the pictures. I has a wonderful seating area out back for a group to be able to talk and just relax. Not far from the Riverwalk. Great place to stay. I just wish there'd been more than one TV for us adults to not have to watch what the kids watched. I would stay here again. Worth the money definitely.

Charming looking property, good sized yard, plenty of parking

  • 4 of 5

Staying at Casa Olmos was the best choice for our stay in San Antonio. We were so pleased with the everything, comfortable beds, spacious bedrooms. Good sized kitchen, great backyard gathering area and it was very tastefully decorated. I am recommending this to my friends and I would definitely stay here again.

Family visit to San Antonio

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in San Antonio with family. My 91 year old mom, brother, husband, and I came for the baptism of a new addition to the family. Our stay in Ricardo's home was the first time I used Home Away. As stated the home is located in a quiet neighborhood and we felt very safe. The home is comfortably furnished and we felt at home. However, there were a few things we observed that would have been helpful. Upon arrival we didn't know that the key was in a lockbox rather than in the place indicated in the rental agreement. It took awhile to connect with Ricardo who finally told me to check my email regarding this change of key placement. There is only one key which was a problem. Two keys would have been better. The steps leading up and into the home are rather steep which were problematic for my mom. In a note I left for Ricardo on our departure, I recommended that a handrail would be helpful as my mom had difficulty entering home. Water in the master bathroom sink drained very slowly. Although Ricardo came to fix it the problem was never solved. In order for him to enter home, we had to leave our key. This is why more than one key would be beneficial for all. The shower in the master bathroom had spaces between the glass doors which caused puddles to form on the floor and necessitated drying the floor after each shower. Luckily my brother who lives in San Antonio brought extra towels, hand towels(which were not provided) and bathmats. I have used vacations rentals before and realize that each place is different. Ricardo's home is lovely. Perhaps with some more improvements our stay would have been more relaxing.

Comfortable yet quirky property

  • 4 of 5

I originally chose this location for a combination of price, location, and the number of beds. I understood that I was not renting a luxury vacation home, but a convenient and comfortable home base for our family vacation. Sadly, the number of beds changed to due to new regulations from the city, however the owners notified me and made appropriate adjustments. In fact, communication with the owners through email, text message, and phone was excellent from booking through departure.

This home is in the middle of an older residential neighborhood. As we entered the neighborhood I was a little worried, but this property has one of the best appearances on the street and has been updated from the original. Although some of the properties in the neighborhood are not well maintained, I had no safety concerns.

The location is very convenient (10-20 mins) to downtown, as well as some of the malls and the airport, which made it a great home base for our family who visited from four states. The convenient supermarket (HEB) made it easy to shop for in-home meals and we really enjoyed Big Bob's Burgers just a few blocks from the home.

The owners did not misrepresent anything about the home, however there were a few things that I had hoped for and missed. The only seating in the living room is the pictured couch, which was comfortable, but very low and difficult for my wife who has back problems. I had hoped for a washer and dryer, but found it easy enough to go to the laundromat, of which there are several close by. There are three steps down into the master, which appears to be an addition to the original home, which would be difficult for an older or disabled person. We had some minor maintenance problems which we took in stride and reported to the owners at the end of our stay.

One final positive was that the kitchen was stocked not only with dishes and cooking equipment, but even had a modest selection of spices, condiments and non-perishable food items. Overall, it was a comfortable stay for us and our family.
