Why Leslie Saenz chose Scenic Oaks

This is a relaxing retreat. Close to all the big city has to offer, but in a rural setting. Its a relaxing place to watch birds, read a good book and just unplug. The house is right off the highway about 8 minutes to Fiesta Texas. 30 minutes to Sea World, San Antonio Zoo and more. Get location! House has a tennis/volleyball court and a basketball hoop! Let's play!

What makes this house unique

PRIVACY, PRIVACY !Whats special about this cute little house is the quiet neighborhood. You can get up and have a cup of joe and sit on the front porch and watch the birds dine at the feeders and spot deer running about the large yard. A visitor can spread out and chill out. The house is yours to enjoy. I provide laundry detergent and dishing soap. And it's my goal to be sure your stay is enjoyable. Simply put, it's just nice. Apple TV in the living and master.

This house can also host a small wedding, meeting or day retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ten out of ten stars for this family! When I checked the house after the stay, I wasn't sure they actually stayed there. I'm talking a super clean family. Easy to talk too and very understanding. If I started a petered customer list, they would be at the top. Thank you for loving my house!

The home is located in a rural area with a of lot of trees. The first morning we were pleasantly surprised with a group of deer waking through the property. Our stay was definitely a retreat for us.

Warm and inviting, loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay in San Antonio! We had a great time staying here. Leslie is great to work with and made us feel like family. She answered our many questions and was so helpful and welcoming. The home is warm, peaceful, and a great place to relax. Great location for exploring San Antonio as well as The Hill Country. About a 30 minute drive to downtown where we visited The Pearl (great farmers market on Saturday's), The Alamo, and The Riverwalk. About a 45 minute drive up to Fredricksburg which is a great little town to visit. H-E-B grocery store (what a fantastic store!) is very close (about 5 minutes), and lots of great shopping and places to eat at The Rim shopping area (about 10 minutes or so). The home was very clean and comfy, had everything that we needed. Loved that it felt like we were out in the country, yet so convenient to everything. We will be back for sure!

Comfortable relaxing with all the amenities one would need.

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our family of five. During our stay we visited the wildlife ranch, sea world, Six Flags, and the Alamo/Riverwalk . It was so nice to come home each night and relax outside, barbecue, and let our little ones stretch their legs. We loved watching the deer wandering to the yard.

3 Miles
Bj Brewery, Red Robbin, Tiagos,

I am very near to Fiesta Texas, The shops of La Cantera and the Rim. If your into nature I am close to Frederick Park, Esienhower Park, Cascade Caverns and Beorne Lake. Within 15 minutes there are walking trails or you can enjoy walking in the neighborhood. Im 30 minutes form the medical center as

well. The Rim offers a large movie theater and some nice food establishments. This place feels like your far from the city but actually its only 30 minutes to Downtown San Antonio or 15 minutes from the antique shops and thrift stores of Downtown Boerne. There is plenty to gaze at from my front porch, birds deer and bunnies.
