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.

This place was perfect! A nice walk to great eats, drinks and sites. The host was helpful and fun. The cottage was just what we needed, clean, cute and comfy. I’ll be back!
It was a pleasure knowing you were thoroughly enjoying the neighborhood like a local. I look forward to hosting you both again soon. Cheers!
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!
Cute Cottage with a Charming Host
Pearl Cottage is absolutely perfect for 1 or 2 people who want to visit San Antonio. It is cute, clean, and provides everything you need. Julia is the most amazing VRBO host I have ever encountered. She gave us excellent recommendations for dining and entertainment. My daughter and I felt like we got to see the real city and not just the tourist traps along the river walk.
I was not aware of how much walking I would be doing here. Make sure you bring comfortable socks and walking shoes!
It was great to introduce your daughter to the friendliness of this great city. I hope she enjoyed her camp and that you'll come back and stay with me again.
Great location, awesome host!!
The cottage was a perfect place for us to stay. We love the Pearl area and it was within a reasonable walking distance. Julia was such a great host - you can tell she really cares about accommodating her guests and pays attention to detail! We would definitely stay here again!
Come back again soon!
Great location for us, near downtown & the work we had there. Knowledgeable host willing to share great ideas. Had everything we needed, well done little cottage. Would definitely repeat the trip!
Glad I could help you discover another new part of the city and so happy you seemed to love the neighborhood too. Wishing you luck for your move.
The property was cozy, clean, well stocked and loved our private parking.
Julia was an awesome host. She went above and beyond our expectations. As first time VRBO renters this was an amazing experience. The cabin was cozy but well stocked. I was also glad we were able to take four legged fur babies. Julia also had a binder that helped with our stay and offered suggestions to what we could in San Antonio. Everything was perfect. Thank you!
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and that everyone was happy in the cottage and yard. I know you have an RV, but please feel free to return to the cottage when you need it again. Happy summer, and welcome to VRBO!
