The owners were absolutely amazing! The place is comfortable, clean, and felt just like home! We had to add an extra night because of our flight getting cancelled, and they were so nice and understanding! Will definitely stay here again!

The Little Carriage House on North Flores

  • 5 of 5

I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the property on North Flores, #3. Brett and Frank were incredibly helpful, and both were readily available via text or telephone. Both provided me with recommendations re: local attractions, eateries, and service facilities, all of which were greatly appreciated (and necessary!). I also enjoyed swimming daily in the pool--what a welcome from the cold of PA! All in all, I feel fortunate to have discovered the Little Carriage House on North Flores! A million thanks to Brett and Frank!

Owner's Response: We have been privileged to have you here. I cannot tell you how many times Brett has mentioned to me how much he enjoys your conversations. Don't you just love the pool. You arrived just in time to enjoy it. We both hope we can remain friends after you find your final nesting place. Until then, please continue to enjoy all of our amenities and call either of us any time. Frank

Best place in San Antonio for an adult couple.

  • 5 of 5

This quaint old house is right in the middle of the city. It's 10 minutes from the River Walk and downtown, 10 minutes to the zoo, the downtown market, grocery stores, shopping, and you can be on I-35, 410, I-37, I-10 or 281 in minutes.

Just the right size, wonderful layout, a pool a nice stone patio, fully fenced and dog friendly, several outdoor coking options and, did I mention, a pool.

I was there when it was finished and, I believe, was the first person to get in.

The owner lives on site and did most of the work on the apartments himself. There are two one-bedroom options and one two-bedroom space.

He's extremely friendly and has a million stories. Don't be surprised if he steps out on the patio for coffee in the morning.

I'll never stay anywhere else when in SA.

Owner's Response: Your kind review is appreciated. I hope everyone enjoys the pool as much as you did. It's nice to read that someone appreciates all the hard work that goes into making a comfortable experience. Please come back any time. You were a wonderful guest and thanks for keeping the place up during your stay. Our cleaning people appreciate that much.

The apartment was a great size for just my husband and I. We were very comfortable. The bed was AMAZING!! Very luxurious!

The stove in the kitchen was vintage so it was fun to use. The only issue was that it has a pilot light which made me aware of not leaving anything near the stove. :-)

The apartment has two window unit air conditioners which keep the apartment very cool. I had a hard time regulating it so that it wasn't too cool.

There is a cat that wanders around demanding attention so if you don't like cats this might cause you to not be as happy with this. But, he doesn't bother you except making noise and trying to get into the apartment.

Frank and Brett were very easy to get in touch with the entire time I was there and responded right away with answers to my questions. They are great hosts! Thanks for everything!!!

Owner's Response: Rhonda: We are so happy you guys enjoyed your stay and appreciated the time appropriate features. They don't make wonderful stoves like that anymore. "Gato" our cat, showed up about 15 years ago with a single kitten in tow. We had her spayed and sh'e's been a part of the family ever since. I know she can be a nuisance to less tolerant people but she's ours, and she lives here. And that's all there is to it. Kindest regards, Frank and Brett
