The two-story, 2000 square-foot house is located in the historic Lavaca neighborhood just south of downtown. There are two bathrooms and four bedrooms.Three bedrooms have queen-sized beds and the fourth has a double bed and a twin.There is also a queen-sized air mattress available. Cable televisions are in the master bedroom and in the living room. Other amenities include DVD player, wireless Internet, washer and dryer, and well stocked kitchen.

Neighborhood : This lovely home away from home is located just south of downtown in the Lavaca neighborhood, the oldest residential neighborhood in San Antonio. From the front door, it is a short walk to the Alamo, the Riverwalk, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Alamodome, Rivercenter Mall, the Blue Star Arts complex and many other attractions.

Transportation: If you want to see the best of San Antonio and don't want to deal with driving, our house is perfect for you!

It's a five-block walk to the Henry Gonzalez Convention Center and seven blocks to the Alamo. If you'd rather not walk or if you're headed somewhere a bit farther away, it's only one block to the San Antonio transit system, including the picturesque downtown trolleys, which pick up every 15 minutes, and buses that connect to all parts of the city. San Antonio B-Cycle, our fabulous bike sharing service, also has several nearby stations. If you do have a vehicle, there's easy highway access and ample off-street parking.

For your protection and mine, I will need to speak to you on the phone before confirming a rental. Please follow up e-mail inquiries with a phone call or be sure to leave a phone number so I can call you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

There are 8 ladies from around the country going home with belly aches and full hearts after the incredible weekend we had at Casa Linda. Thank you so much for accommodating us while we kicked off our first annual girls' weekend trip. We loved being able to walk to the local restaurants that were close by, and the popcorn and mac-n-cheese made for the perfect late night snacks.



Thank you again! We loved it!

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Like Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in a house vs. a hotel room. Adults and children had "their space" to hang in. So nice to have the separate bedrooms and the family to watch tv, play video games, and play board games. The kids appreciated the wi-fi available. We ALL appreciated the central air and the room fans that worked wonders for the over 100 degree weather that we had. The location is PERFECT. Close to the interstate, and close to the riverwalk, and close to wonderful restaurants. And the kids (although we are a DOG family) really loved the cats! They named them and had their favorites. They may have overfed them. Peaches (the caramel colored one) and Senor Boss (the small black and white) were the favorites, as they were the most social with us, and seemed to just sit and await someone to come outside and visit. The stocked pantry was appreciated, as well. Just a super place to rent. Thanks!

Family Friendly and Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed a week in this lovely historic home. We had such a great time. It is close to all of the down town attractions, the convention center and public transit is a short walk so the entire city is within reach. Parking is no problem and the neighborhood was quiet and safe. The photos are accurate and the property is in great condition with beautiful hardwood floors. We made good use of the back deck and rocking chairs on the front porch. My children, all teens, loved being "alone" upstairs without us parents. The full kitchen was put to extensive use and we even found time to just hang out. Tommy and Stacy were the best at answering all of our questions. We had a great time and would recommend this property to anyone looking, unless we were planning to be back in the area!! *They have a guest book and it has a spot for recommendations and I just thought of one - a baby gate. They have a high chair, stroller and a pack and play but with the stairs, a baby gate would be fantastic. There may have been one and since all of my kiddos are older, I may have simply over looked it.

Owner's Response: Dessa, We're so glad to know you had a good time at the house. We're especially glad to know you put the kitchen to good use, although we hope you got to enjoy some of the nearby restaurants also! Great suggestions about the baby gate. I'm going to pick one up this week. Thanks for helping make Casa Linda an even better place for our guests! We hope you make it back sometime.

Rose of San Antone

  • 5 of 5
Being a business owner who travels extensively and rents homes through Home Away approximately 10 times per year, I have to say I was delighted with Casa Linde. Six of us stayed while attending a conference at the convention center, which happened to be occurring during Fiesta. The proximity to the Convention Center, River Walk and all of Downtown could not have been more accommodating and being in a well-maintained historic residential neighborhood, we were able to escape the chaos into peaceful bliss.

If you are visiting San Antonio and want to experience the ambiance of the glory days of Texas, then Casa Linde is the perfect place. While the house has been modernized with all of today’s conveniences, and is very comfortable, it is still a wonderful example of the grand homes from the turn of the last century; and, with a little imagination, will transport you back to the days when cowboys and cattle still commanded the streets of San Antone. We would definitely rent Casa Linde again. Thank you Tom!

Bachelorette Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
While planning my weekend get away I couldn't resist staying at Casa Linda, the house holds very dear memories for me, and I just knew that it would be perfect! Our stay was awesome, the house was cozy, clean, and felt like home. Tom was very helpful and informative, he definitely welcomed us into his home with open arms. I look forward to returning to Casa Linda soon, very soon!

Ideal Location and very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Linde. The property was clean and comfortable. Everything worked as described upon our arrival. All the other reviews we read in advance were accurate. Tom & Stacey were responsive to our questions & needs. As other reviews indicate, it is walking distance to several great restaurants (5 minutes to at least 4, 10 minutes to many more). The River Walk and most San Antonio downtown destinations are within a 15-20 minute walk. The front porch and back deck were wonderful for gatherings and relaxation. We visited during "FIESTA" so it was absolutely terrific to be close to the craziness but not in it (unless we wanted to be) and to not have to deal with parking. We fully utilized the driveway, parking 4 cars off the street as the listing advertises.We enjoyed renting bikes and traveling south on the River Walk. By going to the main rental station at Cesar Chavez & Alamo during business hours they LENT (not rent) us bike helmets for our stay! A few key points: 1) we did not find any grocery stores or liquor stores withing walking distance so a rental car was very helpful although we only put 44 miles on it during a week; 2) the cats mentioned in other reviews are 'ever present'. Even if you do not feed them there are always one or two around so if you are allergic to cats or just don't like being around them, your time outside on the porch or decks will be limited; 3) it is a city location & on a main bus route so there is bus noise and trains can be heard in the near distance most nights even though the neighborhood and street is generally very quiet and serene. After a couple of nights we became accustom to it. We would definitely rent Casa Linda again and recommend it to anyone visiting San Antonio. It provided a wonderful atmosphere for a small family reunion over Easter weekend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, Barbara! We're so happy you guys enjoyed your Easter vacation and stay at Casa Linda. A lot of folks who've visited during Fiesta have expressed the sentiment that the house is a great respite - the perfect distance from the festivities for easy access and easy retreat. We're especially happy you enjoyed using San Antonio B-Cycle. It's such a convenient service, and we're lucky to have several stations near the house.

We absolutely agree that a grocery store in the neighborhood would be a huge convenience, and we're happy to say HEB will be building a smaller store on the site of their corporate campus just a few blocks away. We look forward to sending guests there in 2015. As for a liquor store, we obviously need to do a better job of promoting the wonderfully quirky Pig Liquors, which is within walking distance of the house. We apologize for not letting you know about it.

We're thankful the cats weren't too much of a nuisance. As I've mentioned before, we inherited these four neighborhood cats when we bought the house. I wasn't a cat person myself, but I have to say they've changed my mind. And we've been surprised and delighted by how many guests have loved having them around. At one time, I was going to start telling people the cats' names, but it's too much fun to read the guestbook and find out what new names each new group gives them. Your point is well taken, however. Based on your coment, we're going to provide some water guns on the porches. A couple of harmless squirts will convince the cats to hang out somewhere else. (Come to think of it, water guns might be a nice for people who want to keep cool too!)

We hope to see you again!
