Overview

San Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 9, allow up to 14

Attractive home, conveniently located next to park provides for a spacious, kid-friendly atmosphere.

LEISURE LIVING: Spend time with the family, friends or just your significant other in this cozy home. Make the most of the quiet, casual atmosphere and enjoy sleeping in, reading a book, watching television, or socializing with others in your party. If your traveling with children, don't worry about an environment filled with breakables and unnecessary clutter, this home is simple, yet stylish.

INDOOR ACTIVITIES: Enjoy all the modern technologies here. Watch the big game in full HD on the flat screen or enjoy a movie from the local Red Box in blue-ray. Whatever your viewing pleasure may be, you are sure to find it with over a hundred channels to choose from.

Stay plugged in with all your friends and family via social networking websites via hi-speed wireless internet access. Connect using your smart phone, laptop, or other portable wireless device.

Kids and adults alike can enjoy endless hours of fun and laughter while playing various board games.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES: PARK: Kids and adults alike will enjoy a fun time at the park; equipped with two jungle gyms, one for toddlers and the other for older kids. There is also a see-saw, swings, park benches, tables and plenty of oak trees to provide shade.

BAR-B-QUE: Adults can bar-b-que in the front yard / driveway (approx. 4-car driveway) while watching the kids at the park. The area is large enough for a grill, tables, chairs and lawn chairs, and access through the garage leads directly into the kitchen for added convenience.

KIDS PLAY: The Cul-De-Sac provides a great area for riding bikes, skateboards and/or rollerblading for the kids.

OUTDOOR EXERCISE: For those who enjoy walking and/or jogging, enjoy a jog around the neighborhood or along the main road outside the subdivision which leads up to Sea World. There is plenty of natural wooded areas for a long stretch alongside the outer perimeter of Sea World, which provides for a very nice nature walk and/or jog.

NOTE: My vacation home is located in a community that does not allow street parking. My driveway can accommodate approximately 4 vehicles.

Please make a special note about our sleeping accommodations: we have three bedrooms, the master bedroom has two (2) Queen size beds, the bunk-bed room has a twin size on top and bottom and another twin size underneath. The last bedroom has a Full size bed. If you would like, you could bring in air mattresses, and set them where there's room. There is a futon mattress in the garage that you could utilize in one of the rooms as well.Although I ALLOW up to 14 guests in my vacation home, I don't claim to have enough beds for everyone. If you value having your entire party stay together (rather than in multiple hotel rooms), and are able to work with the provided accommodations, then WELCOME HOME!

About Carlos

My name is Carlos. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. My wife Stephanie and I have 5 children; 4 boys and a girl.

I am a God-fearing, bible believing Christian and seek to glorify God with this home and my service towards all my guests. I am one of the deacons at Grace Community Church of San Antonio (www.gccsatx.com & www.illbehonest.com). If you are looking for a church to visit while in San Antonio, we would be glad to have you and your family!

I enjoy working from home where my children are homeschooled. My wife enjoys gardening and raising her chickens; she wants a goat but I don't know about that. :-) I enjoy riding my bike at the San Antonio Mission Trails, Down Town, Riverwalk, and some other places, including a little off-road mountain biking.

Carlos purchased this house in 2003

Why Carlos chose San Antonio

Well I didn’t choose San Antonio, God chose it for me 40 years ago. Oblivious to how great our city is, I spent most of my teenage & early 20’s hoping to travel to other cities and for an opportunity to experience life anywhere but San Antonio. The Lord saved me when I was 25 yrs old and I realized that there was nothing new under the sun. Wanting to run from my home town would have been nothing more than chasing after the wind.

In 2001, I started working for a service contractor which provided me an opportunity to travel. I would always stay in a box (hotel), and if there was any leisure time, I would get in the rental car and explore the city’s scenery. It was nice but lacking a personalized experience. I wanted to know more about the city than just its buildings and scenery. I wanted to know the people and the experience of being a local; or at least feel like one for a few days. I thought, if I could stay amongst the people, then perhaps I could meet interesting people, share the gospel of Jesus Christ and build friendships.

What an opportunity we all have when renting a Vacation Rental Home! I once did a site visit at Disney World in Orlando Florida for a contract. There was an area in Downtown Disney that could convert your child’s hair, makeup and attire to become a princess for the day. Well you could become a San Antonian for a few days or even a few weeks when staying in one of my vacation homes! Come get to know the neighbors, community, and my fellow San Antonian’s!

San Antonio is a beautiful city that has preserved its history and provides an aura of nostalgia. The Alamo, Missions, Riverwalk, Market Square, King William Historical District, La Villita, etc…, make the city attractive, romantic and family oriented. The city is vast and widespread with amenities such as countless golfing venues, shops, theme parks (Sea World & Six Flags), museums, nature parks, zoo, sporting events, horseback riding, bike trails, swimming, shooting, hunting, etc...

What makes this house unique

For the square footage, this property has a great layout! The driveway has been expanded to accommodate up to 4 vehicles and a large concrete patio has been added in the back yard. The children can enjoy play in the fully-enclosed backyard or at the park next door; park features high-end playground equipment. Sea World is located so close that you can hear screaming from the rollercoaster when outside. Access and distance to nearby necessities is all within 5 minutes.

Amazing Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful. We had all the conveniences of home right there in Texas. We flew to San Antonio from Los Angeles to watch our son graduate from BMT. My nerves were frazzled, all I wanted was to hold my son. We arrived at the home after dark and Carlos was there to greet us with a tour and a map of the area and surrounding attraction. (Sea World, River Walk..) The house was clean and ready to be lived in. My husband, two sons, my parents and myself had more than enough room to spread out and relax during the time times. The park next door was a god sent since my boys often had energy to burn. The house has a load of board games for evening fun as well! Carlos checked in on us and even allowed us to extend our check out hour until 5 pm so we could spend more time with our son in the comfort of a home instead of a restaurant.

Thank you Carlos for making a hectic time one of peace and relaxation.

Great location. Every thing we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The property is well Maintained. Carlos met us the first night to show us around and was available to assist throughout our trip, as needed. The house is located within 20 minutes of everything we wanted to do! Very nice home, with everything we needed, including Netflix! Nice to come home after a long day or touring and watch a movie with the family.
