Walking distance to famous River Walk, and all of the good stuff in Southtown: Blue Star Complex, Beethovens Beer Garden, Friendly Spot, bike trails, Mission Reach Trails, 1919 Bar (my personal favorite). Numerous restaurants within walking distance: Madhatters, Feast, HotJoy, and Liberty Bar/Restaurant. The River Center mall with an IMAX is less then 2 miles away.

About John Adam McDowell
I was born and raised in San Antonio. I love it here and really enjoy living in the King William area. I am 15 minutes from just about everything in San Antonio. I was a teacher and basketball coach for 7 years before I started flipping houses. I started J Adams Properties LLC. to move into the rental, and this rental is the first vacation rental type property, but as soon as you see it you will understand why I felt I needed to share this property. I am still involved in basketball, and I am currently working on taking kids to basketball camps around the world.

Why John Adam McDowell chose Downtown
I was very fortunate to get this piece of property. I lived about a mile south and saw the "For Sale" sign but assumed by the location I could not afford the house. I was surprised by the price, but after seeing the condition I understood why. Luckily I have parents that are not scared of a challenge, and we took on this huge project together. When we started the property was deemed "uninhabitable." Eight months later it turned out better then I thought possible. I love living here and you will love visiting.

Comfortably Eclectic & Absolutely Perfect
We really wanted to have a downtown San Antonio Christmas (Riverwalk 1 mi. away) with our youngest home from college. This home was perfect for our family. Kitchen was well stocked with tools for cooking. We made a rib roast that wouldn’t have been possible without a well thought out kitchen. The accommodations were great. The neighborhood ice house was down the street. We got to see the a game on the outdoor projection screen! Would rent again!
This is a lovely home in the King William area of downtown. It is very close to great restaurants and walking distance to conference center and other downtown attractions. John was very responsive-we had trouble with getting the gaming system to work for my 11year old, and he came right over with an alternative which made my son’s day. It’s a very comfortable home-the kitchen had everything we needed. We had a great stay!
Beautiful Historic San Antonio
We really enjoyed our family getaway to San Antonio for Thanksgiving. We were able to stay in the Heart of King William area, close enough to everything that we wanted to see and experience. This house is big enough for our family of 5 but it does sleep up to 8 people with three full/queen beds and room for an air mattress. The upper floors have ben renovated and are beautifully decorated but are in need of some TLC. The kitchen has everything you need to cook with nice updated appliances. We meet the owner in the front yard (he was having a bonfire) on the last night we stayed, he seemed supper friendly and was quick to respond to most of our messages sent to him. He did have some great suggestions for area restaurants for us. We love San Antonio and can't wait to visit again.
Location is awesome!
This is a great old house with all the modern amenities. Walkable to the Riverwalk and only a couple blocks from Blue Star Complex bars and restaurants and the Liberty Bar has great food.
where you want to be.
John is a fantastic host responding quickly and very accommodating.
the check-in is so easy with code entry. The Place was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, the candies in the fridge were yummy. The restaurants and bars are in walking distance no need to drive. everything was prefect.
Great accommodations! Great location!
We had a great stay! The house is clean, newly renovated, and is well equipped. The owner is extremely accessible and accommodating. Located just 1 mile from the Riverwalk, we could walk with our kids to all the attractions and food (great park and splash pad about halfway)! Overall great place to stay with your family!
