Beeaaautiful and great owners!
This place is a little slice of heaven. A very homey, cultural, and relaxing feel. We were looking for a comfortable and secure spot for my family and I to stay while visiting San Antonio and this place was perfect; it is about 25-30 minutes from the Alamo and the Riverwalk depending on traffic but only a few minutes from restaurants and shopping in Helotes. It was a perfect distance from the hustle and bustle of the city so we could relax while being close enough to enjoy all the sites and events. We loved the Spanish styling and rustic charm. The whole place has great character and the owners were wonderful to work with and fellowship with; very helpful and accommodating. It was like staying with friends that gave you the space you needed but also were there to interact and have fun if you wanted company. The pool was "cold" for the area but beautiful and we enjoyed it still. The bed in the main room was super comfortable and my daughter slept great in the other room. Although the space is a little small, it is cozy and had enough space for all 3 of us and probably more if we needed. There is lots of outdoor space so that you don't have to stay indoors the whole time. I want to go back just to relax in this little Spanish paradise and visit San Antonio; we definitely recommend this place!
Nice place to sleep, great owners!
My husband and 2 sons stayed here for 2 nights. When we arrived, the casita was clean and ready for us. The space is charming if you are looking for a unique place to stay, but be prepared to not have a lot of space. The main BR is mostly bed (which was comfortable), with no other place to sit or place your suitcases. There is a wardrobe to unpack and store your clothes, which helps. The 2nd BR has a little more space as the bed is smaller (twin) with a trundle bed tucked underneath. There is one chair to sit in this room. A set of 4 dishes and a Keurig with K-cups was provided. The mini-fridge worked, but the freezer needed defrosting so was essentially unusable for us. There is no TV, which was ok for us-just didn't realize this when booking our stay. I would suggest the owners make the casita more "suite-like" and swap out the twin beds for a sofa sleeper, which would provide more living space and still sleep 4. The WiFi was iffy, worked better in the main BR so our boys ended up sitting on the floor in our room to play on their phones. :)
The bathroom connecting the 2 rooms was fine, hot water in the shower with decent water pressure. I would recommend upgrading the towels, however-they matched the decor but were very small!
The grounds have so much potential! We visited in late March so nothing was in bloom yet. You can tell the grounds are a work in progress (new driveway was just paved, grass was cut, structure to hide the trash was just built). The owners live on the grounds with small (adorable) children, so be prepared for toys, strollers, etc to be lying around the yard and the pool area-didn't bother us, just mentioning it so you know what to expect. The pool could be amazing with a little TLC-needed a good cleaning (which happened on our 2nd day there) and the furniture could use an upgrade. Again, it was March and not at its peak usage, so maybe the space is a little more maintained during the summer months. It is not heated so it was cold for that time of year, but my boys didn't care, they enjoyed jumping off the diving board anyway!
Brett was an extremely gracious host. He acknowledged that although this was not the Hilton, he would do whatever he could to make our stay enjoyable. He gave us a cooler with ice (to make up for the freezer), and our boys were so happy to play on his new driveway with the new basketball hoop! Whatever the space is lacking in accommodations is made up for in hospitality-thank you!!
Very cute and quite
We loved staying here. It was super quite and clean. The pool was amazing . The owners are nice. Definitely will stay again
Relaxing, cozy, and a great weekend getaway!
My fiancé and I stayed for the weekend in one of the casitas for our 2 year anniversary. We absolutely LOVED our trip! The casita is a two bedroom, one bath. It’s a cute place to stay, very cozy, just what we wanted. The bed is so comfortable! Honestly, we both stayed in bed till about 10:15 the next morning because neither one of us wanted to get up! The surrounding area is very quiet so you can expect a great night’s sleep. The next morning we spent most of our day at the pool, which is amazing! The design is smart. It’s a long rectangular pool. They have a shallow (beach-like access) on one end, where you can tan, but be cooled off by the water at the same time. This would also be a great spot for young kids if that applies to you. The other end has a diving board, which we had so much fun with! The rest of the pool is probably about 4 feet and gets close to 8 feet or so near the diving board. My fiancé actually loved this pool so much that he wants to make a similar design in our future house! I’m definitely ok with that :D There are plenty of chairs and pool toys for kids. There’s a big tree that gives the pool some shade from the hot, Texas sun. Onsite there’s also a small exercise room with free-weights and a couple machines and a restroom. If you want to make s’mores, there’s a fire pit. And right in the center of the site is a peaceful water fountain. Overall, we highly recommend staying here. If you’re looking for a relaxing, quiet weekend or trip, look no further because this place is wonderful. We will be back. Brett and Jenna are very accommodating and respond quickly to emails!
Wow! So thorough and kind. Thank you, jenna, for staying here and for the great review. Please come back anytime.
Fantastic get away! Beautiful property with amazing character and charm!
Absolutely loved our stay. Super cute and the property owners were very nice!!! We will be back very soon!
Thanks Morgan. Really appreciate the kind words and we'd love having u back!
A lovely getaway in the Southwestern flavor of San Antonio!
The place was clean, clean, clean. Every amenity available was in good shape meaning we got er' done when washing clothes and small does NOT mean 'mal' in this case. We had a pleasant experience and wish the property owners well in the future. We hope to return next time we travel to the San Antonio area.
Awesome family and Hope they come back! They left us a huuuuge raft for the pool and we use it everyday now :)
Thank you so much, April, for the kind words. We have worked on it a lot to clean it up.
Enjoy the rest of your hot hot summer
