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.

Amazing city and house

  • 5 of 5

We spend a wonderful long week-end in San Antonio. The city is wonderful and amazing!

The Alamo, the Missions, the River walk and Seaworld were all exciting places.

The house is comfortable, the garden with the pool and the barbecues are really cozy and relaxing for enjoying after a tourist day.

Thank Brett for your kindness!

Quaint Carriage House with Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Our recent spring break trip to San Antonio brought us to Brett’s 1st floor North Flores Carriage House rental. Our party consisted of myself, my husband, and our 2 teenage daughters. Brett was there and greeted us and showed us the unit, how to work the (very cool) antique stove and the terrace area and how to log onto the internet. The carriage house was very quaint, represented well by the photos in the VRBO ad. It was a very nice size for the 4 of us, but may not work for every family of 4 or 2 couples, as they secondary bed is the pull out couch. There is not a door to the bedroom, which also cuts down on privacy, but the bedroom is large and there is a nice corner for privacy when changing. The bathroom is a basic ¾, not very roomy and only has a small sink vanity, not much room for toiletries. As well it only has a bifold-type door, so again not a lot of privacy, but it worked for us. There is also no outlet in the bathroom. That didn’t prove to be a problem for us, as we used the small table and mirror in the entry for the hairdryer, etc. The king-sized bed in the bedroom was fantastic! It was so comfortable; I wanted to take it home with me. There are 2 TVs in the unit, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, both hooked up to satellite TV with every imaginable channel available. That was a nice touch. The chairs and couch were comfortable. The kitchen was amply supplied with appliances and pots, pans, utensils, dinnerware, etc. We only made breakfasts and sandwiches, but everything worked well, though tight. Not a problem for our use, though. Brett also told us there was both a gas and charcoal grill (with charcoal) available for our use, but never did. There is also a shared laundry unit available, but again, we didn’t use it. The terrace area was the best. We would sit out by the pool in the late afternoon sun and enjoy the warmth. It was a little too cool to use the pool, but it looked very nice. The only negative I have about this unit is the noise that can be heard from the unit above and outside. The front door does not shut tightly when it is closed and we could hear quite clearly conversations on the terrace. In addition, we could hear every step that was taken in the unit above us. Our unit was mostly tile, and so I assume that the unit above was, as well. One night the renters above us were walking around for quite a long time at 11pm, when we were trying to sleep.
