San Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage style, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Luxury. Located In Historic Neighborhoo

Behind the simple facade of this historic and urban cottage style house, lies a whole new and cozy world of contemporary ambiance and decor. Based on its colorful decor, my Family and I named it 'THE HOUSE OF COLORS'

Our house was just rehabbed and remodeled during the second half of 2013. We tore walls, added new windows, wall texture, painting and floors to create open and friendly spaces with lots of light. Then we added brand new contemporary furniture full of colors.

The house is centrally located in the prestigious Historic District of 'Olmos Park Terrace' where new young and mature urban professionals are moving to. This is an amazing location as the house is just 10-15 minutes away from San Antonio's main tourist spots. 4-5 miles to Downtown, Riverwalk (Paseo del Rio) and Convention Center, 5 Minutes to San Antonio's Zoo and SA's top 2 shopping, dining and entertainment centers which are 'North Star Mall' and 'The Quarry'. 24 minutes to Lackland Air Force Base. 18 minutes to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and 23 minutes to Sea World.

Also our Historic District neighbors the small affluent/upscale City of 'Olmos Park' which is inside San Antonio. Within walking distance there is a great neighborhood cafe, and very nice restaurants (Mexican, Italian, French, Vietnamese).

After visiting all the tourist spots in SA, our house offers a cozy patio with brand new and contemporary furniture to enjoy a nice evening with family/friends or a nice BBQ

Very few vacation rental houses are so close to everything and at the same time offering a setting of luxury and contemporary decor with new furniture.

I am from Monterrey, Mexico and San Antonio has always been my 2nd home town. I love San Antonio because it is a major big city but still you can drive to many fun areas within just a short 10-15 minute drive if you live in Central San Antonio.

Richard V. purchased this house in 2013

I love the urban life. When you live or vacation close to downtown San Antonio, you are closer to the culture, energy and personality of a city. When a saw this house for the first time, I saw a very simple cottage house facade. But after seeing its amazing location in a safe Historic District less than 4 miles from downtown and all the nice restaurants, bars and shops located in less than 2 miles, my dream was to turn this house into a cozy paradise of contemporary ambiance and decor, full of light and color.

Amazing location close to everything. Safe Historic District with a mix of Hispanic traditional families and upcoming young and mature urban professionals (Single and Married)

Great contemporary decor and ambiance.

Perfect San Antonio location with easy access to Riverwalk, Downtown, amenities, etc

This place was perfect for my vacation needs.
It was close by to everything I was looking for, just a short drive (or cab ride) away from food, groceries, multiple golf courses, the Riverwalk, etc..
The owner was incredibly accommodating and friendly and made sure that everything I needed was available to me, and stopped by to introduce himself, which I thought was a nice touch because it puts a face to the names from the emails.
If (or when) I return to San Antonio I would definitely consider using this vacation residence again.

My wife and I completely enjoyed this location. The house had 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a nice size living room and kitchen. The patio was quite enjoyable even thou the weather was on the cool side, with a nice size yard. As mentioned you are only a short distance from the Alamo and other sites. We had no problems getting around or finding things we wanted or wanted to do.
Next time we go back to San Antonio we hope to be able to rent this location again.

I am happy to recommend this rental after having stayed here with my family for a week. The owner was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The house was a very comfortable place to stay and relax after a busy day of sightseeing. It provided the comforts of home away from home. The space was perfect for spending time together as a family. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone! You will not be disappointed!

Great House, Centrally located!

I have stayed at a number of homes on VRBO, and this was one of the best houses and experiences I have had. The home was completely renovated recently, and was very nice inside. The pictures were spot on and reflected everything we saw while staying there. We were on a golf getaway from the Midwest in the middle of winter, and the house was accessible to downtown, the airport, highways, the Quarry shopping center and restaurants, and golf courses. It was very clean inside and the owner provided a number of amenities that others have not, including sample size toiletries in every bedroom incase you had forgotten something.
I can't say enough about the owner and the hospitality that was provided. Everything from directions, to recommendations on breakfast spots, to local restaurants. He was only a text away, and was very responsive. Great spot for the price and great hospitality. I would certainly stay here again upon returning to San Antonio!!!

Lovely home

Ricardo was very accommodating! We arrived a bit late and he waited for us. I was traveling with my family for our brothers airforce graduation at the Lackland airforce base. The house was just perfect location wise. It's close to everything. The shops in San Antonio are about a ten fifteen minute drive. In regards to the house, we had a party of ten and we had a lot of leg room, I even mentioned to Ricardo my sister would fly in for two days and he was kind enough to provide an air mattress. The only negative was that we didn't get to spend more days there. If you do drive to visit San Antonio you would love the home. The kitchen was so fun to cook in. The outdoor patio was gorgeous and the kids really enjoyed playing outside. I would definitely recommend the home if you're traveling with children. If you don't have a car it's very tough to navigate around so definitely keep that in mind when renting. The area around the house is very suburban which we enjoyed being that were from a rather load area. If traveling to San Antonio I would definitely stay at Ricardo's again.
