I have been professionally involved with fashion for TV-broadcasting all my life so I am a person who deeply enjoys art and fashion trends and I have found in San Antonio an amazing place to spend my vacations in a city that has everything to get inspired, from spectacular parks and nearby natural places to go for a walk, biking or hiking and get in touch with nature -to all the vibrating places and cultural entertainment and activities I have always enjoyed in this city, not to mention the vast variety of great restaurants and spectacular shopping. I'm sure you will enjoy as much as I do spending your vacations in this beautiful Mediterranean Villa!
Luz Llamas, Property Owner & Mrs Anne Marie Grube, Property Manager purchased this house in 2013
After spending many vacations with my boyfriend in San Antonio, I found that the most convenient area to stay and get the most of San Antonio and its amazing offer and lifestyle evolved around his home location -north of the airport, so I decided along with my boyfriend to start an amazing adventure to find my special and unique place... well, you know how destiny sometimes give us amazing surprises -having dinner with our good friend and neighbor from the house next door we found out that he was offered to relocate because of a work promotion so that's how I end with this beautiful house! but furthermore having bought the house next door to my boyfriend's give us the unique opportunity to rent both houses for large families or groups!!
Quiet gated community, nice pool and Club House recently renovated, Lots of space to play around the neighborhood without traffic and very conveniently located. Main access street has been recently been widened to 5 lanes and entrance is currently being renovated by the City of San Antonio.
The property was perfect for the purpose of our visit - family of 10 adults get away to six flags and sea world. It was centrally located being approximately 22 minutes from every location we visited, no matter which direction we were headed. The only thing I would suggest is extra towels and toilet paper.
My overall experience with HomeAway from Home as a 1st time user is negative. Website is not user friendly and proper owner/manage/website did not send a bill for 2nd half of rental. I waited one week past due before requested assistance. HomeAway from home automatic emails were useless because no information was imputed by homeowners. I was not contacted one time during our stay by the owner or property manager to give any needed assistance. I have used air B and B several times and my experience has been positive and very differnt then this vacation rental thus I would never choose to use this booking site.
Home itself: Codes for entering the home did not work upon arrival. My family entering the home first were coming from Africa and did not have cell phone for assistance. I feel strongly that there should be at least two codes provided to prevent this. This was a huge inconsiderate inconvenient after paying for location to be available. There was no home manual with information about home. Thus we did not know were to find sheets for futons. The VCR on each TV were not connected and there was no manual to show how to make connections. No code provided for walking gate even though I expressed this was family reunion and was forced to park 15-20 cars 4 mins away at HEB grocery store when church lot was closer.
There were bees/hornets, in the back yard which stung some guests. (I have photo of this) There was only one back porch light that worked thus we could not getaway or find their location. This made our family reunion cookout difficult and dangerous for seniors. We counted over 5 light bulbs that were burned out in home not counting outside. General home condition. No curtains in one upstairs guest room and other bedroom had broken blinds in the upstairs and one broken chair. Bathroom had pealing paint and cracked tiles. There were no towel hooks in bedrooms for wet towels and not enough in bathroom for home occupancy. It is unreasonable to have guest bring their own pool towels thus amenities are unavailable for our use.
Positive: Was given a 12 pm check a 9 am check out is extremely unreasonable. Proximity to airport was great we had 6 international flight and 16 domestic flights that our family had to coordinate.
We were very happy with our stay at this property! The description of the home is accurate. It is clean and furnishings are simple and cozy like described. The bed linens were nice and updated as mentioned in a previous review. The pillows were a little thin, so you may want to bring your own if you like a thicker pillow. Towels were provided, but we had to provide our own washcloths, but that was not that big a deal. Working with the homeowner and property manager was very easy and efficient.
I would recommended this home to anyone taking a large family or group to San Antonio! We took 7 adults and 3 children and we all had our own rooms. The home is about 45 minutes from SeaWorld and 30 minutes from the Alamo/Riverwalk. (Although this may sound like a long distance, for San Antonio it really wasn't that bad...especially for the amount of space you get with this house.) Again--we really enjoyed our stay and this was great experience for our family! I would recommend you consider this home!!
We enjoyed the vacation home. The only problem we had was the lack of washcloths. Really would have been helpful to know that washcloths are not provided.
What a great home to arrive to after a long road trip! We had two families, four adults and four kids and when we first arrived the kids were so excited to explore their new home for the next few days (the adults were too - ha). The home had nearly everything we needed and it was extremely roomy and comfortable for all of us. The kids kept themselves entertained in their own personal space where the twin beds and futons were at while the adults spent time on the back patio, living room and dining area. We cooked at the house for dinner every night, one night we used the backyard charcoal grill. I was definitely impressed with how stocked the kitchen was with cookware, utensils, plates, bowls, cups, etc. It was conveniently located about a quarter mile away from a corner shopping area that included a huge grocery store, CVS, gas station and much more. We were able to use the community pool one day - which was only a very short walk down from the house. We all enjoyed relaxing poolside for a day.
I do have a few suggestions. The very last evening of our stay and the next morning were extremely challenging for us since we ran out of paper towels and toilet paper. We had absolutely nothing other than the towels we brought and the towels that were at the house to clean up, especially any spills and messes made by the kids. Running out of toilet paper in the middle of the night was also challenging to say the least. I actually thought about bringing a couple of extra rolls, so I could be to blame for that BUT it would be nice if you could supply extra paper products - especially toilet paper.
There were also no bathroom wash cloths or face towels - that would have been very helpful. Considering that the house fits quite a few people, is kid friendly and is located in a community with a pool I strongly suggest stocking the house with pool towels and some pool toys (noodles, floats, etc.). We drove and were able to bring our own towels but we did not bring pool toys for the kids. For guests who are flying in - they most likely wouldn't be able to pack either of these things. We stay at vacation rental homes a lot and normally all of these items I've suggested are included.
Thank you so much for lending us your home for a few days. We had a spectacular vacation and honestly wish it didn't have to end!
To start, we booked in advance and booking was simple. The site was down but I called and they kept the space open for us on our requested dates. They have a property manager Alene who is fabulous. The pictures are an accurate representation of the property. They do have a pool but it is down the road.
The house is in a gated community with properties still in development. It looks like about 30 houses all together once complete. The first impression of the house is nicer than i expected. You never know when you book on line and part of me had my fingers crossed. There were 3 families totaling 6 adults and 7 kids. It could have been really tight but it wasn't. we felt we had plenty of room and weren't on top of each other. I like having wood floors throughout. easy clean up and less mess.
I would give it 3.5 stars because it's clean and roomy behind a gated community. I kept being surprised by the little things, like how the dining room sat 12 and the kitchen had enough dishes/flatware/ appliances etc for 12+ people. They have a little bbq pit on the patio and they even had the grilling tools. We just needed food. They had soap, washing powder and when you have kids it's great to go back home with some clean clothes. Two rooms fit king sized beds and still had enough room for sitting areas. One room had 2 queen beds. It looks like the garage was converted into a 4th room which has 2 twin beds and living space which is where the futon is and a separate living space. It says sleep 12 but we could have fit 16 easily.
They could improve by: providing face towels and not hand towels, like you would expect in a hotel. The linen on all the beds except for the queen beds was old and dated, like the kind i'd expect in a college dorm. I like down pillows and plushy duvets with crisp clean sheets. I didn't lay on the comforters. check out at 9am is tough! We had 12 people to get up and out and we were pushing it.
We stayed there to go on our annual trip to schlitterbahn which was about30 min away. we had a blast both nights. We would stay here again and recommend to a friend.
I really suggest they upgrade the linen, it would make for a better experience for your guests and add some wash cloths. I suggest some duvet covers with matching shams. You don't even have to get new comforters, just cover them up! That would help take you from 3 stars to 4 stars.
