Relaxing getaway near the heart of San Antonio

  • 5 of 5

This property was a very relaxing refuge for my wife and I as we recently visited San Antonio for a 3-day tennis tournament. Very near the activity center of San Antonio's River Walk and downtown area, we could engage in the social touristy attractions, then retreat to the quaint neighborhood nearby, just as the local residents would. With local grocery stores and restaurants within a mile, we could sample the local flavor or simply cook for ourselves. Had we had more time, it would have been ideal to cookout on the large flagstone patio and lounge in the beautiful pool there. An added bonus was to have access to a laundry washer/dryer on the property. That came in handy. Brett made our stay free of hassle and worry. Thanks for a great stay, Brett!

Very convenient to downtown and Pearl but just off the beaten path enough. Pool is fantastic and the owner/operator is extremely accommodating!

Great location! Nice accommodations! Lovely pool and patio area! Good value! Brett had a frig full of seltzers, sodas and beer for us to drink, a free laundry and there were beautiful plantings around the patio, where we relaxed morning and night.
