Rhonda Canales purchased this farmhouse in 1995
We stayed for 3 days. It was a wonderful experience. Everything was clean, so many extras included. Ex. Spices in cupboard, washer/dryer available if needed. Easy to get around. Would love to do this again!
We stayed at the Texas Barn house for a month. The three acre property is gated and extremely quiet. The beds were very comfortable, and everything you would need for an extended stay is there.
We were in San Antonio to attend the needs of our elderly parents and set up assisted living arrangements for them. The Texas Barn provided an oasis of tranquility while we dealt with a myriad of family issues. The relaxing country feel of the property made you forget you were in the city.
Rhonda and Paul were terrific hosts, wonderful conversationalists. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning.
My husband and I had a conference in San Antonio and decided to stay at a rental rather than a hotel. This property was just wonderful. It is on 3 beautifully landscaped acres with a great pool and various sitting areas. There were deer in the yard each morning and evening along with a couple of truly cuddly Golden Retrievers. The unit had two large bedrooms, two large bathrooms, two living areas and a large laundry room where we put our dog crate. The kitchen was well appointed. The owner was friendly and accessible. Our daughter and grandson joined us during our stay and we spent a couple of days at Sea World and Aquatica. The location was convenient to the Medical Center, to downtown, and to Sea World. It was actually close to a major road but felt like the middle of a small country town. There was even a Buddhist garden across the street. I highly recommend this rental and we plan to stay here again.
I will definitely be back!! This is the first vacation where I did not want it to end. The accommodations were wonderful, and the hosts have become good friends.
The Texas Barn-House is in central San Antonio, but is in an estate setting, and offers fully furnished (and I mean fully furnished) 2 bedroom/2bath/full kitchen with living and dining area. My wife and I loved it, and loved sharing an occasional spontaneous happy hour with its charming hosts, Paul and Rhonda.
If you are looking for the perfect place to stay during your visit to San Antonio, you will absolutely thank yourself for choosing this place.

We loved this rental it was very safe and secure, the house was beautiful, the beds were so comfortable and Rhonda was such a sweetheart. This was a good centrally located place to stay to get to Sea World and the River Walk.
WOW! What a gift it was to stay on Paul and Rhonda's "Texas Barn". This is a place where you will feel at "home". The property is immaculate with the feel of being in the country while within the city. It is beautiful, comfortable, but most especially the owner/hosts Paul and Rhonda are Texas Gems. I encourage my Montana and Canadian friends to stay with Paul and Rhonda, "Buddy & Millie" at the "Texas Barn". It is an experierence you won't want to miss when visiting San Antonio. And on my last day the "Deer" came to the estate.
