About Merrill

We enjoy traveling and book our rentals through VRBO and Homeaway. That is why we are sharing our downtown condo monthly with visitors coming to San Antonio. Many of the appointments in the condo were purchased during our travels.

Merrill purchased this condo in 2014

Why Merrill chose Government Hill

Renters will not be disappointed during their stay in our uniquely appointed condo. We have added art and furnishings to the condo specifically with our future renters in mind. Renters have remarked that the condo is much larger than the pictures posted on this site indicate. Furthermore, detail is given to cleanliness of the condo. All floors are steamed cleaned prior to the arrival of any guest.

What makes this condo unique

You will enjoy the restaurants in the immediate area, morning strolls down the riverwalk, yoga in the park, shopping, or just watching the Texas sunset while sipping wine on the balcony. We think that you will enjoy the San Antonio Riverwalk and historic Pearl Brewery as much as we do. The San Antonio downtown vibe is a bonus!

Nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo for our girl's trip to San Antonio. Enjoyed some of the close restaurants at the Pearl and the Pig Stand for breakfast. We took the water taxi downtown, although we were happy to have a car to explore the city and missions. The Keurig stopped working one day, and a new one was delivered pronto...along with fresh muffins! The condo was clean and comfortable...a great choice for us.

beautiful condo

  • 3 of 5

the condo you see online is what you get. it is well decorated and well supplied. it is located close to the pearl, which has many restaurants and shops. it is an hour walk to the downtown riverwalk, which is also accessible by water taxi, car, in a 10 minute span. there are historical sites, tourist attractions and golf courses within easy driving distances. the owners are accommodating and very helpful. the wine, cheese and crackers left for us upon arrival, was a very nice touch. everything is very clean. there is a beautiful big balcony, overlooking the street. this brings us to the only negative of this condo. the noise. between the school buses leaving and arriving twice every day, the train a few blocks away and the traffic, cars, trucks and motorcycles , on the street, which does not allow anyone the enjoyment of the balcony. the noise is even loud inside the condo. we really did enjoy the condo, and everything was excellent except for the above.

Owner's Response: WOW! This is our first non-5Star review! All of our monthly renters have enjoyed the condo. My husband and I are the owners. We stayed there this week for two nights and never expenerienced any of the issues as indicated by this review. We even sat on the balcony twice and enjoyed the evenings. I will relate that the renters who gave this response were 5Star. Thank you for your response and it was nice to meet you for dinner at Graze.

First off, we stayed in Merrill's apartment for almost two months (we were in the process of relocating to San Antonio from Europe). The apartment is in perfect condition (extremely clean and comfortable) and very well appointed and has everything you need for a short or long stay (and I mean everything). Initially before we arrived, we were concerned there wouldn't be enough living space for a family of 4. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that there was ample living space and the pictures do not do the apartment justice.

Merrill was very attentive throughout our stay. As an example, the washer malfunctioned during our stay late one evening and she quickly (ie. the next day) had it repaired. When traveling with 2 small children, the washer was used plenty and Merrill was very sensitive to our needs.

And let me just rattle a bit about the area. WONDERFUL location! So many restaurants and things to do all walking distance. The Pearl Brewery is a 5 minute walk away and the start of the Riverwalk is also a very short jaunt from the apartment. You must eat at The Luxury when you visit and eat their crack fries! So tasty.The DoSeum is a short walk away too and tons of playgrounds nearby should you have small children. I could go on and on about the area but I'll stop for now.

I would without reservation recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the San Antonio area for long or short visits. Do yourself a favor and book this apartment, don't waste your time looking for any other place to stay in San Antonio!

Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated condo.

Merrill is such a wonderful host, showing us where to go for eats, riverwalk, shopping, etc. and also providing wine, cheese, and chocolates upon arrival. It is these special touches that made my mom's birthday special. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well equipped condo. Plenty of restaurants to choose from at the Pearl Brewery area. The River Walk is close by but would definitely recommend taking a river taxi downtown - walked along the river the first night but not again! Enjoyed our first vacation in San Antonio.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo!! Clean and lots of small touches that were very nice, including the welcome bottle of wine. Merrill went out of her way to meet us at the condo at a time that worked for my family. The condo was beautifully appointed. It is close/walking to the Pearl Brewery, LaGloria, many other restuarants, as well as the Riverwalk water taxi to downtown. Hope to be back soon. Thank you!
