COZY, KID FRIENDLY HOME, NEXT DOOR TO SEA WORLD / BMT GRADUATION DISCOUNTS! (GC)

San Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 10-14

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.

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 (large two-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.

My name is Carlos and in the picture shown, I am married to my beautiful wife of 11 years, Stephanie. Also shown in the picture are my three oldest boys; the Lord has since blessed us with our fourth boy and first baby girl. Our children range in ages from 1 to 10 years old.

We enjoy travelling together (which is usually for church conferences). I am one of the Deacons at Grace Community Church of San Antonio (web address gccsatx). If you are looking for a place of worship while in San Antonio, you are most welcome to join us.

In addition to running this vacation rental, I am also a computer repair technician, small business consultant, bookkeeper, and more.

Carlos purchased this house in 2003

At the time I purchased this home, I did not know that I would one day rent it out. This location, Northwest San Antonio, was the area of town I grew up. I went to Elementary, Middle and High School in this area. It is a beautiful, clean and quiet area and that is why I moved here.

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.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect stay for my husband's BMT graduation weekend. He was so glad to have a place to go to off base and just stretch out and relax. He said it was "Perfect!" Our daughter loved the playground - literally next door. The drive was convenient to Lackland - about 15 minutes. There is plenty of shopping and dining close by. The owner of the property was courteous and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting San Antonio.

Wonderful vacation home, Wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5
We will never rent from another property owner, when you find a good thing you need to stick with it! Mr. Carlos was an excellent owner/manager, he is honest,professional, courteous, prompt and a Christian man. His home was exactly as described. The home was large,clean,up to date and in a safe,quiet, child friendly (park right next door), centrally located neighborhood- there was even a great grocery store right around the corner! We have a large family and were blessed to be able to all stay together in one place, cook our own meals and eat all together at one table, we will never again stay at a hotel if Mr. Carlos has a home available! It truly was a home away from home!

Best vacation rental yet!!

  • 5 of 5
This property was literally an answer to prayer!!
It was exactly what we needed for extended family time with 2 small grandchildren: fenced yard, kid-friendly house and playground next door. Everything was as depicted in the photos and the location was great. The owner provided superb customer service and was ready to go above and beyond. Clean, neat, safe, good location, what more could you ask for? We have rented other vacation homes, but this was the best so far! We would recommend this property to anyone and hope to stay here again!

Just okay

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at this property with our three children ages 6 & 3. The house is literally 5 minutes from Sea World which was great and about 20 minutes outside of downtown (Riverwalk, Alamo, etc.) The park next door was great for the kids and the neighborhood was quiet. The only complaint I had is that I didn't really feel like the house was "clean". The house has carpet throughout - which in my opinion is a bad idea in a rental - and the carpet looked filthy, it was worn and had several stains. My husband refused to walk barefoot in the house and instead wore socks. The bottoms of his socks were black the carpet was so dirty. The rest of the house could really use a good deep clean as well. The fixtures in the tub/shower that were probably once shiny silver looked galvanized and had water/soap spots all over them, the baseboards needed to be dusted and if you moved anything - like the Blue Ray player - it was apparent that it had only been dusted around and not under. Also, the faux leather couch is starting to rip/fray in between the cushions which was scratchy if you sat on it.
On a good note, the owner Carlos was very thorough showing us where everything was located and how it worked and even texted in the middle of our stay to check on us and to see if we needed anything.

Owner's Response: Hi Jill,

Thank you for the invaluable feedback. I am both humbled and very sorry that the cleaning was found to be substandard. :-(

It is very true, carpet can be quite difficult to maintain in a vacation rental home. The carpet spots in the living room were acknowledged before your check-in. I had personally attempted to remove the carpet stains by traditional hand scrubbing methods, only to have the stains resurface. I have since rented a carpet cleaning machine to service the carpet. Furthermore, I spoke with my housekeepers to ensure the overall quality of cleaning that I, and more importantly, my guests expect.

I just completed a number of exterior projects (e.g. new sod and sprinkler system, driveway add-on to accommodate more than two vehicles and a large concrete patio with wrought iron hand-rail in the backyard). My next projects will certainly be the homes interior needs. I constantly invest in my vacation home because I sincerely care about giving my guests the most for their money and personal enjoyment.

Thank you so much for letting others know about my customer service, my quiet neighborhood next to a great park for the kids and the convenience to San Antonio’s area attractions! I look forward to the opportunity to host your family during your next trip to San Antonio!

Sincerely,

Carlos
