I think this is a gem of a location to stay if you're looking for an authentic San Antonio experience. The location is convenient and historic, not to mention the home is beautiful and in great condition. Everything about it was exactly what I was looking for.
We got to meet Tommy- the owner before leaving town. He is friendly and was appreciative of us as renters. I would totally recommend his home to anyone, and I will!
While in SA we went the Children's Museum, throw a 3rd Birthday Party at The Cove (a great spot, check it out- especially if you have kids), and returned to the house for a great family night (which included a walk around the hood). Of course the following day we made an easy trip over to the Market Square for breakfast at La Tierra, and of course the obligatory (but awesome) visit to the Alamo. Viva San Antonio!
I live in Austin, and make fairly regular trips to SA to see friends and family. This visit however felt like a real vacation since we stayed in this house. I hope I get to stay there again in the future.
