My family and I had a great time. I have three boys ages 5 month, 4 and 8. They love the backyard and the house. It's very spacious and has ahomey feel to it. We were only minutes from Sea World and the River walk. My son asked if we could live there..lol.

Excellent for Family

The house was perfect for a weekend wedding accommodation for the bride's family which included her parents, siblings, and aunt and uncle. It was convenient to the location of the wedding and other attractions. The coziness and decor of the house made it easier to relax and get comfortable while we prepared for the wedding. My parent's loved the palm trees out on the back patio, which reminded them of when they first met and were engaged in Thailand. Thank you for the pleasant accommodations!

Great for a big family

This is a huge house with a really nice big back yard. Grocery is minutes away. Neighborhood
seemed quite safe. The location is very close to downtown. Riverwalk, shopping, restaurants
& all of downtown San Antonio are just minutes away, yet when you are sitting in the backyard,
it seems like you are in the country. This would be a wonderful place for a big family. The rooms
are spacious and the front wrap around porch is just the place to relax. This is where we spent
our 10th wedding anniversary.

Great House and Centrally Located

This review is a little late, but I stopped to stay there in the middle of a move out west to attend my son's Air Force graduation. Shirley (the owner) was very accommodation and did everything she said she would. There were no surprised. The house was in great condition and very clean. The house had plenty of kitchen items, towels and internet service. It was very nice to have a garage to park in. I've stayed at many vacation rentals and feel this one is above average. I would stay there again. The neghborhood is an older neighborhood, but felt safe. We had no problems during our 5 days there.

Beautiful Home

  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2012

We stayed for five nights with two adults and four children between the ages of 3 and 13. The house is in a great historic neighborhood that seems to be up and coming. The house had everything we needed, tons of room, and was very close to parks, an outdoor pool, downtown attractions, groceries, and restaurants. We went to Sea World, the Alamo and riverwalk, El Mercado, and took a trolley tour and, on the last night of our vacation, we asked the big kids what their favorite thing was about the San Antonio trip. They all said, "THE HOUSE!"

It's so much better than staying in two hotel rooms--we were able to drive to all of the things we wanted to see and do and then get away from it all at the end of the day by returning to a beautiful home and yard. The adults enjoyed a glass of wine on the porch in the evenings, the beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of towels, sheets, dishes, and utensils. Bring a cord for your laptop to plug into the modem.

Other reviewers have noted that there is a small cottage in the back that comes with the rental--the property manager lives in the cottage now, so it is not used by guests anymore.

We loved our stay and would definitely recommend "Grandma's House" to anyone looking for a vacation rental in San Antonio!
Owner's Response: So glad you had a great stay. Thanks for the wonderful feedback.
