Why Ricardo Valdes chose San Antonio

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.

Snafu when we arrived, but Ricardo worked hard to make it right. Nice place for a group, cute decor. Beds were nicely made up. A couple extra details will make this place a great stay.

Perfect weekend getaway in SA

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a long weekend getaway in SA. Great location! The neighborhood looks a little less than pleasing; however, don;'t be fooled! The owner has done a great job of renovating the house. It is very nice inside and spacious! Also, we had no problems with any of the neighbors. Everyone was very friendly. The backyard is very large and we sat outside in the afternoon/evening and enjoyed visiting with family. When we arrived there was an issue with one side of the fence; however, the owner immediately had his contractor come over and fix it that evening. The owner responds very quickly and is available to answer any questions/needs. Furthermore, the owner found out it was my birthday and left a sweet candy bouquet and cake for us to enjoy. He went above and beyond. It was a great experience. Highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a rental in a great location in SA for a long weekend. Thank you again!

Casa Olmos -- a great place for family, fun and fireworks!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my family rented a place to gather, and we were happy to have found Casa Olmos. My daughter is doing her residency in San Antonio and we all wanted to be together. We also wanted to celebrate our Army son's safe return from another mission. All our children are older now and most live in the New York area like us, but our son and his wife and one-year-old daughter would be coming from the Fort Bragg area in from North Carolina. Most of us were spending a great deal in travel fees and our goal was to rent an affordable house that was neat and clean with enough beds for us. Since this met those needs perfectly, we gave this five stars.

The three bedrooms with king beds were perfect for our crew of seven. A crib was also provided and there was even a portable air bed in the closet. There was enough personal and communal space for us all to be comfortable. They had two baths as well which was truly a blessing. The family space included the kitchen and living room and they were were interconnected to make it spacious enough for when we were altogether.

All the appliances were clean and workable. We were under impression there would be a dishwasher, but there was not any. Since we ate out most of the time (except breakfast), it was not a major issue. We also had to run some vinegar through the coffee pot to clean out some mineral buildup but we did find Dunkin' Donuts nearby while we were fixing it! The one thing we did miss was a DVD player since we brought some things we wanted to watch as a family. Still, none of this impacted our stay very much.

Finally, you want to rent from someone you trust. We saw Ricardo had great recommendations and that spoke volumes to us. Although we never met him personally, we had numerous electronic communications going back and forth, and he could not be more accommodating. He even sent over his landscaper during our stay to clean up fallen leaves and things.

The fireworks made San Antonio a great place to welcome in the new year. There was lots to do for all ages. We visited the Riverwalk (downtown), the San Antonio Zoo (with the baby), the Alamo, Fredricksburg (for wine tasting and dinner), the Botanical Gardens and the Japanese Gardens, the Pearl District, and numerous fitness gyms, restaurants and cafes. Our favorite place to eat as a family was the Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery at the Pearl Brewery, and we suggest you never leave San Antonio without at least one visit there!

Excellent Rental Property Near Downtown San Antonio

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property in San Antonio to visit family and participate in the San Antonio Rock 'N' Roll Marathon. The house is in an older neighborhood that's only a short drive to downtown San Antonio. It's very well maintained and the owner was prompt to respond to any of our questions. We'd recommend this property if you're looking to visit San Antonio. Just make sure to read the details as this property does not have a washer and dryer which may be an issue for some.
