About Jo Pierce

I am a yogi and attorney that works for a local non profit. I use this rental to supplement my income so I can continue to do the work I love. I love to travel and make sure my rental is as clean and welcoming as I would want the places I stay to be.

Why Jo Pierce chose Downtown

I bought this home because I love the downtown lifestyle. I bike almost everywhere and from this location I can bike anywhere in the entire downtown.

The home is also an energy efficient green home and I do care about saving energy and saving money on utilities.

What makes this house unique

Its hard to find a 100 plus year old renovated energy efficient green home downtown that has two full bathrooms and funky décor, especially not for such a great price!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Joanna was responsive and accommodating to requests before we arrived. And the house turned out to be even better than it looked in the pictures. It's a really cool historic property with eclectic decor. The location is great, just a short drive to the Southtown restaurants and downtown.

Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at the home while conducting a trial in San Antonio. It was perfect. The owner was incredibly accommodating and it was the perfect location for us as it was close to the Courthouse. Five minute drive every morning! Additionally, the location is perfect with many great restaurants. It made the whole working experience enjoyable as we could come back from a long day in Court and relax in this comfy, cool, house. It also provided plenty of space to continue working and had wi-fi, which was a must for us. Oh ya, and we WON the trial! Loved it, will do it again, Thank you JO!

Great location not so great house

  • 3 of 5

House was old with charm but not very clean and was very cluttered. Pillows and towels were old and we heard loud trains all night. It was super close to the river walk and some good restaurants but we didn't sleep very well.

Not impressed

  • 2 of 5

Although the inside of the house was decorated nicely it was a little creepy having someone else personal items all over the house. The owners make-up bottles, toothpaste, shampoo, socks, and pictures were all over. The bed comforter had a red stain on it that grossed me out. When I took a shower there was along hair in the soap dispenser. Dog hair was all over the floor and the sofa smelled like a dog. Dust was packed on the ceiling fan above the bed. Overall the house gave me an uneasy feeling, I couldn't wait to leave. It's a shame because the owner seamed very nice. With a little TLC, some cleaning and removing of personal items this house could be a lot better.

Quiet street, very convenient in downtown San Antonio

  • 5 of 5

The house was quiet, solid, comfortable and very clean. Instructions were provided and very easy to understand. Updated bathrooms, nice bedrooms and plenty of space for our visit. The proximity of the house to downtown San Antonio, and dining amenities, made our stay very enjoyable.
