A wonderful remodeled private cottage on a quiet full city lot, complete with off-street parking inside your fenced yard. I've furnished your getaway with new appliances, a full kitchen with everything you need, a lovely full bath with tub/shower, a comfy memory foam queen-size mattress, plus basic cable AND wi-fi! Located an easy 6-block walk (or bike ride) to the Pearl and Riverwalk, 1/2 a mile to the heart of downtown San Antonio and the Alamo, this is one of the city's hottest neighborhoods. You'll enjoy being able to walk to the restaurants and bars a few blocks away, or taking Uber/cab to other areas of town. I live across the street, so if you need anything I'm available. I am a food writer, food tour operator, and avid fan of this fantastic city. Come and enjoy this great town and our friendly folks. PS: Don't let the great rate dissuade you. I prefer to keep the property rented and to provide a great value to San Antonio visitors.

I've lived and worked in San Antonio for 35+ years and have seen wonderfully positive changes. I am involved in the business community, specifically in the culinary and advertising industries, and am proud of the people who make this city tick. I run a culinary tour business, Food Chick Tours.
Julia purchased this House in 2016
Why Julia chose Government Hill
After living in several other parts of the city, I settled here in 2013. I love this neighborhood and its easy access to all the action. I bought the cottage property across the street from my home, poured a lot of love into fixing it up, and now have a great opportunity to share this area with visitors.
What makes this House unique
We are SO close to everything, yet it is quiet and peaceful on this block. The bus stop is two blocks away, the Riverwalk is six blocks away, we can hear the bugles at Ft. Sam and the birds in the trees. The Convention Center is not far away either and the cottage has proven to be very convenient for those attending events there.

Super clean comfortable getaway. Everything we needed for our break. Got the bus to Riverwalk and Uber back. Perfect
Secluded in the middle of everything
Really enjoyed our stay. The cottage had everything we needed an was close to all the action but quiet in its own little place. Our hostess, Julia, was helpful and readily available each time we contacted her. Thanks for a truly enjoyable weekend.
Thanks for a wonderful review and for leaving the cottage so clean and well cared for. I hope your anniversary weekend was memorable and that our friendly city made it even more special.
Close to where you need to go.
Great get away, easy to get on and off major highway, close to the places you want to go.
Glad you, your mom and your service dog enjoyed your stay.
Cozy property with great welcome
The property was as described by the host. Julia is a fab host and spoilt us with a lovely welcome pack of goodies. She gave us great advice on where to go and what to do. The house is a short distance (5 mins by car) to the Pearl district. You can walk there, or catch a bus too.
Unfortunately it rained hard for almost all of our stay which did spoil our enjoyment somewhat.
Being over from the UK it would have been nice to have a kettle to use and laundry facilities, but that is us being picky.
Thanks Julia x
Yes, the rain sure was awful that weekend - a real Texas treat.
The cottage is small, so I pack it with as many conveniences as possible without cluttering. Guests can boil water in the coffeemaker or microwave for tea. I know when I travel to the UK I miss my coffeemaker, so I understand the cultural kitchen void. And since most guests are staying just a few days, laundry isn't an issue.With a laundromat 3 blocks away, a laundry problem can be easily remedied.
I hope the rest of your travels are fun adventures. Hope you'll come back again.
Great little place close to everything.
The Government Hill area is a very interesting mix of old and older. Some homes are well kept and many are not. But it’s a great area and an awesome cottage. Julia is a wonderful hostess and can give you tons of ideas on things to do and places to eat. We had a great stay!
Great place to stay!
What a cozy and convenient place to stay in San Antonio. Julia is an awesome host and has great ideas on dining and things to do. She even went to lunch with us one day when she was free. I would stay here every time I came to San Antonio. Make sure to thank her for the curtain on the door! She will know what you mean. 😁�
It was fun knowing you enjoyed a few of your food fantasies here - and I was happy to help you discover new sources of indulgence. Thanks for the window hack!
Close to the famous Riverwalk and the quiet and artistic section of the Riverwalk called the Museum Reach; blocks from the Pearl, a high-end culinary center; walk or drive to the, San Antonio Museum of Art, the SA Botanical Center, McNay Art Museum - and don't forget the Alamo!
