Why Brett and Jenna chose San Antonio

We fell in love with this property but had to wait almost 2 years before we could make the move. we want it to be used to host friends, family, and even people we don't know like you. Our hope is that your time here will be relaxing and peaceful. our prayer is that while you are here you are 'far away' from your anxieties.

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I do a annual girls getaway. This was the perfect place for us to stay. It was so clean, quaint, quiet and so relaxing. The location was convenient, about 1/2 hour away from everything we wanted to do. The owners were so welcoming and responsive. Definitely a place to consider if looking to stay in the San Antonio area. Thanks so much Brett and Jenna.

Different from the norm

  • 5 of 5

very cool place! Nice. Clean. It's not a five star resort but that's not what we wanted. We brought our 6 and 3 year old and wanted something different from a regular boring hotel. The property is beautiful and the little house is clean, with all amenities you will need to stay comfortably. Brett was nice and seemed willing to accommodate any of our needs.

Very rustic and primitive, with tons of old world charm!

  • 4 of 5

Was just what we needed for a girls unplugged getaway. We felt like we stepped back in time. We loved the look and feel of the old ranch. The owners were very kind and attentive to our needs. The location was just minutes from everything Helotes Texas has to offer which is a lot the first weekend of the month.

I would recommend bringing a flash lite if you will be returning after dark, the walk ways are old stones which are part of the charm however there is no light at your room door and the walk can be a bit treacherous.

We would stay here again.

great historic hacienda style rooms

  • 4 of 5

The rooms we rented we're great, we love to go to places that are not that common. They are hacienda style as well as the environment. Everything is, or looks very old and gives a really rustic atmosphere. Thanks Brett and Jenna for the nice stay

Quiet & beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

just visited Casa Lejana with my 1 year old for our first trip away from home. We are only 2 hours away but wanted a nice & quiet place to stay to visit family that were in town. First, as we were driving into Helotes, we were greeted by beautiful hills! With only being 20-25 min from downtown (depending on traffic) it was quite scenic & beautiful. As we drove up we were greeted with this beautiful property consisting of a main residence & two little cottages next to one another. The beautiful stone path started with a board greeting us, Welcom to Casa Lejana April & Bodhi! Was a very nice & personal touch that I loved. The main & one cottage are occupied. Would have never known except for their vehicles. It was very quiet & peaceful. PROS: Quiet, short drive (20-25 min) to everything downtown, close to restaurants/gas/shopping/groceries in Helotes, has a POOL. CONS: gated but gate was always open. Was a little walk from car to cottage. Not usually an issue at all but with a child who isn't fully walking yet, it was a lot for me to carry all we needed back & forth, having to leave him in car while doing so. Overall, this was a great cottage & I hope to bring my husband back to stay again some day soon! The owners were very nice, accommodating & made sure I had EVERYTHING I needed.

Hospitality was amazing. It felt so peaceful. Like i was in another world...but with wifi :) the grounds were well kept and the pool was the perfect temp for such a warm day. Inside was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. My only regret was not staying longer. I'd stay again and again.
