Best Place! Great Vacation
Submitted: August 3, 2012
Stayed: December 2011
We planned a Christmas-New Year's vacation near San Antonio, Texas. There were 14 adults and 3 children in our party. We rented the house for two weeks arriving on 12/22/2011.
We made our rental decision based on the fact that the house looked good on the posted photographs and it had very good reviews but we honestly did not know what to expect so we were a little anxious about it. When we arrived, we were relieved to see that the entire house actually looked much better than what we had seen in the website and that the property is very well taken care of.
All the common areas, the 5 bedrooms and their respective bathrooms were clean and well taken care of. The dining table was able to accommodate 8-10 people at a time. In the kitchen there were enough pots,pans and utensils to cook meals without problems. We mostly used disposable plates, glasses, cups and utensils to make things easier for everyone.
The outside kitchen was wonderful. We used the outside icemaker and the refrigerator to store beverages and some food. Gary was kind enough to have the outdoors firepit ready for us and we used this every night.
Even though all the rooms in this house are adjacent to the main house, three of them are totally independent of the main common areas so that the people sleeping in these rooms had full privacy and independence when they wanted it. The large room (Paris Room) above the garage had plenty of space and enough beds to sleep all of the young (and one or two not so young) boys in our party comfortably.
All the bedrooms were perfect, with good quality mattresses, pillows and linen. The bathrooms were clean, in good working order and well-furnished and the owners provided all necessary toiletries.
Something very attractive to us was the fact that we stayed close to San Antonio but not in in the city itself. In addition we were close to Austin, TX and to the two San Marcos Outlet malls.
Cate and Gary live within the property but their house is far from the main house (at the end of the property, by the river) so that they provide you total privacy. However they are always available when needed. They both were truly very welcoming of our large group and graciously accommodated to all of our needs. We cannot thank them enough for their hospitality and their kindness.
Based on our experience, my wife and I would strongly recommend this property for large groups seeking to spend a great time in a first-class property near San Antonio.
