About the property

2 Bedroom (Queen bed and Queen + Twin ), 1 Bath, kitchen, and Washer/Drye

This is a house that has been completely renovated. It is clean and centrally located within minutes of most attractions (and the airport) in San Antonio. This lovely quaint Dellview home is perfectly situated in the City. It is close to the medical center, downtown, and the airport. This is owned by a professor/doctor, and is still used by the homeowner as a getaway when not occupied. A renovation was just completed and it is both comfortable and clean. The hardwood floors really give this home a warm feel (and some even say a romantic feel). The back media room is a great place to relax after a day of work or fun day in San Antonio.

About Don Dougherty

Hello and welcome to our site. This house, that we originally bought to renovate and use when we are too tired to drive home out of the city, or use when we have events in the medical center or downtown area. Originally, we bought this to flip, but we fell in love with it and the neighborhood. We just finished it this last year, we had our first guests here in April of 2016. I am a professor at the UT Medical School.

Don Dougherty purchased this house in 2015

Why Don Dougherty chose North Central

This is a very quiet neighborhood. Dellview started out in the 1950's as a working class neighborhood, many of the original residents (or their children) remain. It has seen great change and popularity in recent years, there are very few houses for sale at any given time. Prices of homes have increased more than 40% in the last 2 years. There may be some highway noise (mostly from outside, we are about a block or two from I-10). There is relatively light traffic on our street. Lastly, note that while most houses are nicely maintained, there are some ugly homes that have not been renovated as of yet as well, which you will see as you travel through the neighborhood (and in our city). But again, this house is awesome, clean, and we have never encountered any problems with safety.

What makes this house unique

Many people enjoy our location. Easy on and off of the highway, close to grocery stores and shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello, my husband, kids and I can't say too much positive for this rental. It was absolutely fantastic. It is the cleanest place I have ever stayed at. It is nicely furnished, with new higher end furniture, not the trash you typically find in rentals, and very nicely laid out floor plan. The place looks new, and is tasteful. Note, that almost everything you need there other than clothes and food is there, I over packed (e.g., dishwasher and laundry detergent), I didn't need anything. Cute house and tremendous owners. Job well done!

One last note, we loved the neighborhood and location and felt safe. There are a few ugly houses around (which I think is stated in their description), being an inner city house, but this house and its yard are well maintained beautiful. No worries with this one folks! Highly recommend staying here.

Final 4

  • 4 of 5

Great House! We were in town for the final 4 and some golf. The owner Don was very gracious with his time as I had a few questions. House itself is fully loaded and was nicely located for our needs.

This immaculate house had so many extras to make your stay wonderful. Keirig cups, computer to use, games, afghans, thick towels, and even bathrobes! The location is great, whether you are sightseeing or need to be near the hospitals. Don was helpful and quick to answer my questions before we booked it. Look no this home for your visit! You will not be disappointed!
