About Jim Smith, CTA, Owner

Owner Jim Smith moved to San Antonio in 2004 from Washington, DC where he spent most of his adult career as a Realtor, Home Builder, and later as a Building and Zoning Code Consultant. In the earlier years Jim spent his free time as a Special Olympics County Coordinator in Maryland (7 years) where he set up a county Special Olympics program which almost five hundred Special Olympians spread around 35 schools. Later, he spent his free time as a community activist, being the President or Board or Committee Member of scores of community interest groups including his civic association, and also served on several Washington, DC Mayoral Commissions including the Building Code Advisory Board (8 years) and the Recreational Trails Commission which decided where to spend public transportation funds for recreational trails in Washington, DC (6 years). The fast pace and hypertension of Washington, DC was too much to bear, so Jim transplanted himself to San Antonio, Texas. In San Antonio, Jim has remodeled six properties, including his home and five other rental properties that are fully furnished. The furniture and interiors were selected for each home by Jim and his sister, Jan, and the results are fine rental accommodation that are reasonable in cost. Jim's full time job is making Guests comfortable, and helping them navigate San Antonio to its many attractions and restaurants. This adventure for Jim has been anything but a progression for retirement, having 14 bathrooms, 19 bedrooms, 26 beds, six sleep sofas, six kitchens, four pools and five hot tubs keeps him totally busy 24/7.

Jim is a Certified Tourist Ambassador and is extremely knowledgeable about San Antonio and its colorful history

In spite of all the hard work, it is indeed a reward to finally settle down in the same city as his lovely sister, Jan, and her husband, David. Jim hopes that all of you who are estranged from your loved ones, living in remote parts, can come together soon and enjoy your loving families!

Jim Smith, CTA, Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why Jim Smith, CTA, Owner chose San Antonio

Jim occupied this property from 2006 to 2009 as his personal residence. This is why the home is more personalized than most other Vacation Rental Homes. The wide streets, generous setbacks, convenience of location, Whole Foods Market one mile away, close proximity to good restaurants and shopping, and quick access to downtown and around town were all key elements in Jim's selection of this neighborhood and this property.

fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beautiful home with 5 people for a golf vacation in san antonio. The gracious owner met us at the home to explain everything and answer any questions we might have. The amenities were plentiful, the home very clean and spacious- was perfect for our group. Would recommend this home to all- Jim was very helpful in every way, could not have been more accomodating! Thanks again for a great vacation!

Great Value, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying in this home; it was a great value for our needs. Great location; near grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping. Very easy to get downtown - easy access by car (15 minute drive) or bus. Also very close to airport (but not too close so there isn't a ton of airplane noise).

Owner very helpful, gave us a tour of the home when we checked in and maps with lots of information/tips about the surrounding area.

Very open layout. There were only two of us on this trip but there is lots of space for folks to be together or spread out. I don't know if this house is designated as handicap accessible, but I would definitely feel comfortable with my elderly relatives with walkers staying here, there is lots of space to maneuver.

Would definitely stay here again.

Great Family Value

  • 5 of 5

The home is a great place for family gatherings for trips to San Antonio. The house is mid century modern and is enormous. We had eight adults and one baby and had more than enough room. As stated in other reviews, the house is laid out so all visitors are happy. The early to bed/early to rise group could do so and not disturb the night owl/late risers. The three bath rooms were great for when multiple people are getting ready to go out. The home was well supplied and everything worked with the exception of the picture hot tub. The ice maker didn't work but the owner ran right out and bought several sacks of ice and it lasted all week. There is plenty of parking off the street. The location is perfect for downtown SA, airport, and shopping.

Overall this is a great family value and it allows everyone to be together. It is just like staying with a relative in SA. Not too fancy but clean.

Above average value for comfort and fun!

  • 5 of 5

As a former San Antonio resident, I knew that the area around the music festival I was attending wasn't the best, so I decided to stay a bit away from the venue. I didn't want to miss out on all the fun, though, so I wanted to find a house that could fit me and several friends. This provided all that and more!

The bedrooms were far enough from the living area that it was possible to get peaceful sleep even with several people who didn't go to bed as early. Likewise, they weren't disturbed when the early risers started gathering for breakfast. There were plenty of bathrooms to accommodate a large group and the house never felt crowded, even when the 7 of us were all there together. The best part was coming back to the hot tub after spending all day on our feet. Most of us were from WA or UT, so being able to use an outdoor pool and hot tub in the middle of December was pretty novel, too!

The only request I would have, and it's really a small one, would be having more of a linen supply. Between showers and the pool, we were short on towels, even with laundry on site, especially since everyone in the group had long hair and needed an extra towel. More than once, we found ourselves to be fresh from the shower without a dry towel available. For a smaller group (or one with less hair), the supply is more than adequate, I'm sure.

Overall, we found the place to be clean, comfortable, and well stocked with basic amenities. The location is fairly central to all points of interest in the city and near several major thoroughfares. When my travels bring me back to San Antonio, this house will definitely be my first choice!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! Actually, the Florida Room next to the pool has a small chest with one dozen more towels in it than the towels in the linen closet. These towels are for pool and hot tub use. I will make a small sign that shows where the extra towels are located for future guests. I try to show the new Guest the extra towel chest at check in, but a sign will be more informative in the event the Guest forgets or in the event I forget to mention it. We actually have at least 24 towels altogether in the home. This Guest was so nice and friendly it was indeed a pleasure providing my Vacation Rental Home for their use. When everyone feels good, it makes a vacation or business travel to San Antonio pleasant for everyone. I try hard to make each of my Guests have a warm and memorable stay in my homes. In the event this home is booked when you want to travel, check out my other fine homes, all are listed on Home Away or on VRBO. Happy traveling everyone! Jim Smith, Owner.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We hosted 10 immediate family members that were in San Antonio for my Son's wedding. Our family ranged from 3 years old to 72 years young. This home was perfect for everyone. Everyone had a blast with the pool and bbq. We loved that the bedrooms were separate from the living area. It made for very peaceful sleeping. Everyone had their own space while all being together. Owner was very accessible and helpful - we loved his hand drawn local map with stores, coffee, etc. Very close to airport and downtown. We would definitely stay here again!! Very pleased.

Awsome Stay

  • 5 of 5

My Grandson recently graduated at Lackland Air Force Base-Basic Training. With six in my party we decided to try the home rental instead of a hotel room stay. It was awsome. The description of the property was accurate - layout was gret and the amenities were above what I expected. I took bath soap, hand soap, paper towels, toilet paper and various other cooking needs if needed . Did not need them. All was provided. The property was well maintained and clean. The owner provided excelent service, directions and even drawed a map surrounding the house of restaurants, grocery stores, quick ways to get in and out of neighborhood. I would definately recommend this property to a friend. My Grandson had some leave time but he just wanted to stay outside by the pool, cook some burgers on the grill and chat with the family. It sure beat staying in a hotel room. I definately would recommend this property and would rent this house again when I get tthe chance to return to San Antonio. Excellent owner care of property and of the people staying at home.
